my guess from what I have read so far is that you are giving your hotel users private ip’s from the same range as his corporate network.
You can do split-tunnel with your cisco gear so your machine continues to have access to the local zeroshell while connected to your asa or whichever.
okay by mac address, makes sense…. you are right, it is possible to specify the mac for the virtual nic in VM, but as you have anticipated, my units are still in transit. I’ll just wait till i have them to avoid wasting everyones time re-keying.
So after further review and testing, I realized even balance-tbl is no good as it is fetching the speed from the interface, which is not accurate, i.e. a 6.0/0.8 DSL would be considered 10meg symmetrical.
Users doing vpn bonding over variable speed links certainly have seen issues with performance, am i the only person to try this so far? am I missing something?
consider it like this:
you have two customs agents open at the airport and you have a family of 10 travelling together. There is an employee in front of customs directing each person to alternating agent line round-robin without considering how fast each line moves. Now consider that each agent is processing people at a different rate, say agentA is 1 person per minute and agentB is 2 persons per minute… basically it will not matter that one agent is faster because the family cannot move on until they have all cleared customs. sorry maybe this is a stupid example but its 2:30am.
I am now looking for patches that implement weighted RR in the bonding module, i would like to avoid reinventing the wheel if possible….. and if I cannot find anything I will write a patch myself to expose the slave speeds/weight to sysfs to be set manually.
I am not sure if there is an easier way, but this is what I did (i think if you are running from a CF image maybe the whole system is r/w and you can just replace it, but this is for everyone else running from livecd with profile stored on some persistent storage.)
Step1: Duplicate kerbynet folder, not much in there anyway
cp -a /cdrom/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/kerbynet /Database/
Replace /Database/kerbynet/Zeroshell.gif with your own logo same dimensions.
In postboot or preboot startup script (did think which is best, both work, post-boot maybe a visitor will catch a glimpse of the stock image)
mount -o bind /Database/kerbynet /cdrom/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/kerbynet
then of course reboot and viola.
