Rather than allocating /22 to each customer who wants to be multihomed, why not allocated the /22 jointly to the two ISP's to use for this and other future multihomed customers ? At least it scales a lot better routing wise... In all likelyhood, we could even generate a new market where ISP's team up and offer multihoming as a service without exploding the routing tables... -- Poul-Henning Kamp | UNIX since Zilog Zeus 3.20 phk at FreeBSD.ORG | TCP/IP since RFC 956 FreeBSD committer | BSD since 4.3-tahoe Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
