DNS for interfaces & PPPoE Time Burst

  • From: Bob Biver

Two things -

Is there a standard for the DNS hostnames of router interfaces (i.e. PtP.origin.destination.bandwidth.layer2.domain)


Is anyone doing traffic shaping on PPPoE circuits so that you can set a variable burst over time? The goal would be to make it commercially invalid to run a 'web' or other server on the end of a 'residential' grade xDSL circuit. Filtering is not an option seeing as everyone wants their personal web server and dialpad to work. But if after 30 seconds of burst to 320K up I shape that PPPoE circuit down to 16K, you wont want to host your Mp3 server. Ideas?
