We are planning to build an OpenBSD server to be our edge router. We are terminating 5 DS3's into two Cisco routers and using bridge-groups and vlans to separate the connections. This works very well in our test setup.
We plan on building two servers and using carp for redundancy. Our initial setup includes AMD Opterons with 1GB RAM. We will need PCI-X, or at least PCI/66Mhz NIC's for this project. I have been told SysKonnect is the way to go, but to wait on support for their new SK-9SXX series cards. We need 2 dual-port gigabit cards.
The time is approaching where we need to implement this. Do any of the developers know the status of the support for the SysKonnect SK-9SXX series? What gigabit chipsets should be my second choice?
