I'll add this to the documentation...

A starting point for you can be found in the tests/config-2 folder which 
has two configuration files.  Please note that this configuration is for 
two routers on the same host (for testing). I'll give an example here 
for how to do two routers on separate hosts.

First, make sure both routers are configured in "interior" mode.  This 
will enable the inter-router protocol:

router {
     mode: interior
     router-id: QDR.A

Also ensure that each router has a different router-id (e.g. "QDR.A" and 

I assume you will want each router to be available on the standard 
port.  To do this, each configuration should contain a standard listener:

listener {
     port: amqp
     sasl-mechanisms: ANONYMOUS

You then need to establish an inter-router connection.  Pick a port (say 
20000) and create a listener on one router and a connector on the other.

Listener (on one router):

listener {
     role: inter-router
     port: 20000
     sasl-mechanisms: ANONYMOUS

Connector (on the other router):

connector {
     role: inter-router
     addr: <ip/host of the other router>
     port: 20000
     sasl-mechanisms: ANONYMOUS

Once you have this running, the same examples should work regardless of 
which router each endpoint is connected to.  You can also use the 
"qdstat" utility to probe the routing tables and known addresses.  
"qdstat -c" will show connections, including the inter-router connections.

If you have any further questions or comments, please post them here.
