I'm trying to find out if anyone knows if traffic from one vodafone client to another would come off the monthly data caps?  I'm thinking of backing up some photos to my brothers place and so I'd know his exact IP address so we should be staying entirely in the VF network...

Any ideas...

We did try it with a 100MB file and it didn't seem to affect data caps but it's hard to tell when the data usage stats updates so slowly...

Nope. AFAIK all DSL customers don't get free traffic between each other.. because of the way DSL here is setup, if you're on telecom wholesale, you still have to go through telecoms gear, etc.

I would think most traffic from a subscriber interface goes through an aggregation router into the backhaul so it's not a simple matter of traffic going into one interface on the first hop router off your router then being forwarded onto the other interface on the same router.
