In this paper, we will build a fault-tolerant network using a Multiple Care-of Addresses registration implementation on NEPL (NEMO Platform for Linux) for the GNU/Linux Operating System. As we will explain in a detailed scenario, Multiple Care-of Addresses registration is a very interesting solution for fault recovery when connecting multihomed networks to the Internet with multiple non-reliable access technologies. The feasibility of this scenario will be endorsed by an experiment using the implementation.
