I'd love to know more about this... I've got access to do just that, but
don't know where exactly to start... We use ADSL which is delivered over ATM
transport - we have mini FreeBSD boxes on the client site, and a FreeBSD box
as a router in the colo as gateway - we're setting it up to do mesh VPN
routing, and packet filtering, etc. but I guess we are in the right position
to set something like that up for anyone wanting more bandwidth...
The nature of the ATM transport is that A can see B and C can see B, but A
can not see C (atm path restrictions - it would have to be routed or bounced
off B, and although I've heard people mumble about /32 subnetting, I'm not
sure how that would work)
B --- Internet
