[j-nsp] vrrp on fxp0

We use a management network via fxp0 with other devices.
I know what you mean, 
But we don't want to change the router ip address on management server  to telnet when RE changed case.
If we run vrrp on fxp0 with interface tracking, we can access always router without ip address change.
Of course we have to use predefined group re0 and re1 at that case.

Why would you want to run vrrp on fxp0?  VRRP gives you a degree of
resilience to a default route.  Since you can't route traffic via fxp0,
this makes no sense at all.

The thing to do for the 2 REs is to have an IP address for each.  Both REs
are live even though one is master and the other slave so you can log into
both of them independently.  If you use the predefined groups re0 and re1,
you can have an identical config on both REs which configures the IP
address of fxp0 depending upon which RE slot the config is being installed
