Does anyone have real-world experience of using
bonding on public networks?
(In the bandwidth-aggregation mode, not the redundancy mode)
I've done aggregation bonding before and it was sucky - weird heisenbugs IIRC.
Now I just buy a 10G NIC.
I was wondering how I could make the following
* Rent a VPS in Melbourne with four IP addresses
* Get four (or just two) ADSL connections wired up to home
* Have your VPS connect four VPN connections from itself back to each
of your home IPs.
* Bond all four interfaces together
* Create a fifth VPN connection, this time going over the
bonded-virtual-interface between VPS and home, and then configure your
home server to use that link as the default route?
If that can even work, it's pretty awful.
Why do you want this?
Because I get about 3.5 mbit downstream on ADSL on my line at home,
and I'm impatient when it comes to waiting for youtube videos to
buffer or large updates to download... at least with four lines I
might get an aggregate of 12mbit, which is just about acceptable.
Can you move the office closer instead? ;-)
Yes, but relocating my home (since I own it) would easily cost $100k
by the time you include stamp duty, real estate agent's fees, movers
and probably some minor renovation at both ends, plus the fact that
houses inside the NBN zones in Melbourne are more expensive (on
average) than where I currently live.
