 Subject:  Off Topic : Bonding
 Date:  Wed, 3 Jan 2007 11:15:38 -0000
Hi guys, 

I know this is a little off topic but I figured this would really be the
only place I could get a decent answer from.

I've got 6x cable modems and I need to bond them to just a single host.
I was thinking this might work....

Create a tunnel on each of the 6 interfaces going to 1 specific site
(100mbit internet connection). Then create a bond0 with the 6x tunnels. 

I only need the bonding to work with this one specific site, not the
entire internet. Would the above work? I've got no idea. The ISP of the
cable modems doesn't support bonding, that much I know.

The other idea I had was to do load balancing over the 6 modems, using
some sort of tcp proxy that converts 1 thread into 6 at my end then 6
threads into 1 at the server end. I'm not sure if this sort of software
even exists.

All help would be gratefully received.

Many Thanks
