Re: OpenBSD with multiple T1 lines?



Hi Sean,

I take it you mean multilink PPP?  And I take it that if the other side
supports MLPPP, I can use OpenBSD's ppp(8)?  I think this would work
with lmc, as it is supposed to be used as a serial device, but I don't
see anything about the san cards. . .

Thanks!
