This being said you can use dynamic routing to distribute the load across 2 paths with 'gated' by putting 2 default routes with equal weight in the gated.conf and then gated will be responsible for adding and removing the default route from the system's routing table on a per-packet or per-connection basis. You will need to select a routing protocol and have a peer that can reciprocate this routing information. -Ross ______________________________________________________________________ This e-mail, and any attachments thereto, is intended only for use by the addressee(s) named herein and may contain legally privileged and/or confidential information.
