1. for a method for the fault tolerant network communication between multiple nodes is provided to application, comprising:

  • Multiple networks via the described multiple nodes of coupling provide multiple initial communication paths, and each network is independent of other network;

    On second protocol driver in the multiple protocol drivers that operate on sending node, receive packet from the described application operating in sending node, described sending node is one of described multiple nodes, and described packet is added the address of node except described sending node in described multiple nodes by described application;

    AndIn described multiple initial communication paths, be first routing path of described packet selection by the fault-tolerant communications driver operating on sending node, wherein said first routing path is preferred path, described preferred path is calculated based on precedence information by described fault-tolerant communications driver, wherein, described sending node comprises multiple network interface unit, each network interface unit is coupled to one different in described multiple network, first network interface card in described multiple network interface unit is by the first network interface card driver control that is coupled to the first protocol driver, described the first protocol driver is coupled to described fault-tolerant communications driver, described fault-tolerant communications driver is coupled to described second protocol driver, described second protocol driver is coupled to described application.
