nope... this will not work.. cause it still doesn't know which way to send
it.i'm having a similar problem with a slightly different twist. i have 1
machine with 2 modems and 2 dialup connections.... this is all well and good
except that my ISP doesn't support modem-bonding and i don't have the cash for
one of the stand-alone dojobbies.
now, i don't really need to have bonded modems, what i would liek to do is
have 2 virtual networks and route each through its own ppp connection. again,
though, one runs into the default route problem. i tried using ipfwadm
direction all traffic from one netwokr to a specific interface but cound't
make it work.. am i on the right path?
