Hi,
I would like to change routing dependent on access to an external IP address, on a  Juniper (SSG) they call this "monitor". on Cisco its called track.
Is there a way to do this on extreme.

Could I use script to do it but would prefer some proper config setting?
Can I get a return from ping to an if statement?
eg

conf ipr add default 10.1.1.1 (normal default route)
conf ipr add route 8.8.8.8/32 10.1.1.1   (this is the normal default route)
while(true)
{
     if (ping 8.8.8.8 and ROUTE_BACKUP)       /* i'm testing out via the default route to see if its working and i'm in backup mode*/
     {
             conf ipr add default 10.1.1.1           /* set the route back to the main link*/
             conf ipr del default 10.1.1.2         /* remove the backup route */
             ROUTE_BACKUP = FALSE
             ROUTE_MAIN = TRUE
      }
     if (NOT ping 8.8.8.8 and ROUTE_MAIN)    /* the ping has failed out of the main route so change to backup link*/
     {
             conf ipr add default 10.1.1.2          /* set the route to backup link*/
             conf ipr del default 10.1.1.1          /* remove the main route */
             ROUTE_BACKUP = TRUE
             ROUTE_MAIN = FALSE
      }
}

Many thanks
