Dynamic:
shrub: Pfsense is the best option all you need is an old core2duo box and good quality intel network cards. 


I have core2duo boxes coming out of my ears (almost literally) but use little appliances in my home setup for power consumption reasons.  5-10w vs 100w+ running 24/7 plus the issue pf heat dissapation in a small cupboard and the noise pollution of the fans...


Yes i do also but i also but i only have 1 connection and gargoyle on the router. 
By the looks of that setup its more than likely going to be temporary anyways hence trying to do it on the cheap.

Willing to give one up for me?

Traffic goes places you dont want it to comments

O well. Hopefully when under 2MBp/s it will only use one then it goes over on a request it would hopefully balance.

Dynamic: This is something on my radar that I have not yet had a go at.  I had in mind one of the little Microtik gigabit routers like this one http://www.gowifi.co.nz/ethernet-adsl/mikrotik-routerboard-rb750gl-five-port-gigabit-router.html.  Their Wiki has information on Load Balancing http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Load_Balancing.


Thats more like it! In my price range!

TimA: Willing to give one up for me?


I've got about a dozen dc7700 SFF machines running with an E4300 and 1Gb.  No HDD.  Full sized optical drive.  $20 cash price each.

Also have about the same number of Dell Optiplex 755's with an E6550 and 2Gb.   No HDD.  Laptop style slim optical drive.  $40 cash price each.

Pickup near Lincoln Road off the NW motorway.  7 Day exchange warranty.

Separately, we have a selection of HDD's starting @ $10 for an 80Gb and $20 for a 160Gb with a 7 Day exchange warranty.

These machines were decommissioned just before Christmas and have been idle since.  No known-faulty machines.  You can power up the machine and give it a quick test before taking away.

oh no tim! that would mean crossing that bridge though! :3


load balancing is always going to have its quirks, but i suspect for what tims trying to do.. shouldnt be all that much of a problem


who knows tim, maybe you can finally get faster speeds than my single vdsl connection :P

Do you think it's a good idea to put all the IP in one vehicle?

Risk management would suggest you should travel separately at all times.

What could possibly go wrong? Ask John about how i like that VANOS in the BMW. Kicks harder than that VTEC stuff.
