By the sounds of it, exactly what you are doing. Can you show us a traceroute that isn't working normally?

Zebra implemets a number of routing protocols, including bgp. With BGP you can pick the best route *out* for your packet, but everyone else's BGP sessions will decide the best route *in* for you. In other words, you can't really shape the incoming traffic very much. In order to setup BGP you'll need to get both your upstreams to setup BGP sessions with you, which is very unlikely to happen. It's also unlikely to really buy you any performance advantage after you subtract the bandwidth that the routing protocol takes. Lastly, you don't have any routes to advertise that will help. I assume, at least, that you just have a /32 for each connection, in which case you'd be trying to advertise a /32 to the entire Internet. That's not going to happen:) Hope this helps, --- David _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
