I'm seriously considering running an ISP, but before getting $10,000 in
debt, I'd like to set up a prototype system, to see if I could get
everything to work like I want it to. I'm going to use Linux to provide
multi-line SLIP/PPP service eventually, picking an IP address from a
pool in my domain. 2 questions:
1) Is there a domain reserved for temporary/experimental subnets that I
could use? It's going to be awhile before I get a real domain
registered, and I'd like to be able to have some addresses to play with.
2) When I do finally get up and running, about how many concurrent 28.8
SLIP sessions can Linux handle on, say, a DX2/66? I'm debating over
whether to go with a dual ISDN or T1; it looks to me like a 128K ISDN
should be enough bandwidth for about 16 fairly bandwidth-intensive
sessions. To exceed 16, my guess is that I should go for a T1, but that
would be kind of pointless if the machine bogs down before then.
Thanks in advance for your time! (Please E-mail and post)
