It can be done with netgraph and either the nc_fec or ng_one2many nodes. ng_one2many is documented, but does not do link failure detection and always uses roundrobin delivery (which may result in out-of-order packets). ng_fec's output hash can be either on MAC address or IP address. Neither node sends LACP or PAgP packets so you must manually configure the switch at the other end. The only documentation for ng_fec is in the orignal maililnglist announcement at http://docs.freebsd.org/cgi/getmsg.cgi?fetch=448009+0+archive/2001/freebsd-net/20010211.freebsd-net -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
