I am pretty sure that the net4801 has two serial connections, though I
have to make sure. I see your point... the ppp junk is just messy.
Thanks for you help on the VIP's.

Ok, this brings to mind another thought. If I have two DSL modems going
into my hub, and then I have two OpenBSD boxes with CARP setup will I be
able to manage 5-7 virtual IP's on that one interface? From what you're
saying it sounds like I can do that without a problem because CARP and
pfsync use interfaces not necessarily IP's. I'm still going to try the
serial connection until Soekris comes up with a 4NIC card.
I don't know much about your DSL stuff, does it use pppoe or something?
then it won't work afaik. But 5-7 virtual IPs on an ethernet interface
is really no problem.
Why do you think it's benefitial to use ipsec or openvpn over a serial
connection? Is this solely based on speed and thruput? Thanks for your
One reason is having the console port available for maintanance or
something. Another one: Putting a simple NIC in both boxen is much more
simple setup and without any pain compared to fiddle with ppp over
serial. But thats just my opinion, might be your situation is different.
