This is getting into minutia, but using multipath BGP will also accomplish this without having to get the route from OSPF to BGP. This simplifies things a bit, and makes it safer to have the servers and routers under independent control. But yes, Joe's ISC TechNote is an excellent document, and was a big help in figuring out how to set this up a few years ago. -Steve _______________________________________________ NANOG mailing list NANOG@xxxxxxxxx http://mailman.nanog.org/mailman/listinfo/nanog
