A method for transparently addressing multi-homed controller host in redundant networks is described. The transparency is considered of prime concern for applications that communicate among these controllers. The method defines a new form of virtual addresses that abstract from IP addresses of subject controllers. The method also applies to redundancy concepts for these controllers.
