RE: Non-ISP companies multi-homing?
What's interesting to me is the few brave souls who are geographically dispersed corporations using their own WAN for multihoming. If you already have leased lines between your offices and each office has its own internet access through a local provider, you can protect against failures of the local providers by rerouting over the WAN leased-lines to another office and popping out on *their* local provider's link. Very cost effective, since you already are paying for the "backup link" anyways as part of your enterprise network. -- gabriel m schuyler, outlaw firstname.lastname@example.org vorpal network - san francisco http://www.vorpal.net/
