Subject "Bonding as Fallover[sic]?"
I think you were asking after a way to bond over two different ISPs.
The likely response was that since the two ISPs are providing a
different layer-3 address to the subscriber, layer-2 bonding isn't an
An "intelligent router" to achieve a similar result would be one that's
careful to keep track of which connection a given flow was first started
from (or first received from) and makes sure that successive
packets/segments/frames involve the same L4-session/L4-session/ethernet
It occurs to me that a linux box with equal-cost multipath support might
be able to "do the right thing" with two separate POSTROUTING entries
and the appropriate double default route, but I've never built this and
would need to test it in a lab carefully.
