Hi

I have two the following network set-up:

/ /
/_ 64 kbps /_ 128 kbps
/ /
/ /
|----| |----|
| A | | B |
|----| |----|
\ /

|----|
| C |

LAN

'A' ist a Linux box, which is throug a 64 k satellite link connected to
the Internet, 'B' is another Linux box, which is throug a 128 k
satellite link connected to the Internet. 'C' is a third Linux box,
which is supposed to be the gateway for the LAN. How can I aggregate the
two connections from 'A' and 'B' into one in 'C'? How do I have to
set-up 'C', such that it does a load balancing beween 'A' and 'B'. E.g.
if 'A' is under heavy load, automatically switches to 'B' and vice
versa?

Thanks for your help
-Thomas
