The IPv6 approach to this does not appear workable either. That's because this is a problem that has never existed, not ever. Proper *real* multi-homing has *ALWAYS* worked and it's technically an excellent way to achieve redundant connectivity for a "small" network. (other risks related to "all your eggs in one basket" type of physical infrastructure aside, and they can be put aside for many businesses because if the bricks&mortar part is destoryed the business can't survive anyway....) Given the various simple little tricks I mentioned you don't even need to put multiple interfaces in every server. -- Greg A.
