Unfortunately, I do not agree. I build similar network for Sprint. ISP
never use ATM because of the cost of the equipement needed. Your ISP is
bridging your service so it is cheaper for him but it is not standard.

Traffic Shaping issue

Hmmm not quite... ;-)

Ok, we aren't using PPoE, it is a "bridged" connection - their word, not
mine, but I simply configure an ethernet device for the assigned IP and
go. It is a public routable IP, but to provide a better example:

Network: xxx.113.195.0/25
ISP Router: xxx.113.195.1
Subscriber A: xxx.113.195.23
Subscriber B: xxx.113.195.24

At present, Subscriber A CAN NOT see subscriber B. I will be replacing
ISP router with my own, and want / need to change that. The reason
being, IPSec tunnels from Subscriber A to subscriber B are not possible
with FreeBSD (I am looking at openvpn as an alternative).

Essentially this is what I have. The way the ATM is used to transport
the data, it acts as a private line. The ISP router expects the clients
to be able to communicate directly (as they are on the same subnet) so
it does NOT route (not even sure FreeBSD CAN route on the same

Thanks for the comments - does this make my problem clearer?
