Re: Everything MLPPP

Well I've successfully bonded two DSLs together as of tonight. I still need to pick up a third modem to add the last one into the mix. I still get the messages about the link being terminated, but everything is working so not sure what to make of that.

So far speed tests aren't great - especially in the downstream direction - not sure what is going on there. Upstream is about as expected, so that's good news.

Sad to hear about the Sangoma situation. I've generally liked them, and it's a local company which is awesome. But I've only ever worked with their voice gear.

My attempt to move from 2 to 3 bonded connections isn't going smoothly unfortunately.I don't see it stating a PPP session on eth3 as expected (see below).

Here is the output of db_dump:

root@Bonder-HDP:/opt/mlppp/bin# ./db_dump

Starting the connection:

root@Bonder-HDP:/opt/mlppp/bin# ./pppoe_start ppp0

The other weird thing is that if I reboot the system, it all goes to hell. It doesn't start up automatically, and I had to re-copy over the /var/run/mlppp directory to get anything going.

Anyone have any experience with this that would be willing to help me out? Like I said - 2 seems to work fine, but trying to get to 3 isn't going so well.

We currently are setup on single line MLPPP, and plan on having a dry loop line installed so we can set up up 2-line mlppp

I'm a little unclear about the physical setup. I'd really appreciate it if someone could clarify a few things for us.

Router is Linksys WRT54GL flashed with TOMATO

I'm thinking it would be set up this way:

Note: Router is Linksys WRT54GL flashed with TOMATO

Line 1 ( Our current DSL connection ) --> Modem 1 --> WAN port on Router

Line 2 ( Dry loop DSL line ) --> Modem 2 --> a LAN port on the Router

LAN2 ---> PC1
LAN3 ---> PC2

Then configure Tomato for 2 line MLPPP
