In a Sysadmin (Jan 2002) article, there is explained how to use Linux as a
"router" using redundant network connections (DSL + dialup), as well as
load balancing between the two. I recall this required some special kernel
and the "iproute" toolset, which must be installed separately; and a few
I wonder if the same (if not more advanced) could be accomplished with FreeBSD.
Take for example, Company A who wants to provision a few sDSL
lines. Creating a FreeBSD gateway/router and load balancing the traffic
amoungst that (with some careful ipf or ipfirewall rulesets) could be very
effective, and a lot cheaper than provisioning a single pipe in some cases.
I wonder if anyone has accomplished this with FreeBSD-4.x or 5.x; and if
they could share that info.
