Hi all,

I am attempting to create a bonded multilink connection with two ADSL
links to my upstream using FreeBSD.

Based on info I have read, I want/need to use mpd, however, I have not
found a definitive answer on whether mpd will actually act as a true
bonded connection as opposed to a load-balancer.

Essentially, can anyone help me out replicate what I have working on my
Cisco on FreeBSD? I'd really like to see an example working config.

Here is the config in the Cisco (less the config of the actual ATM

interface Dialer1
 mtu 1492
 bandwidth 12000
 bandwidth inherit
 ip address negotiated
 no ip redirects
 no ip unreachables
 no ip proxy-arp
 encapsulation ppp
 dialer pool 1
 ppp authentication pap callin
 ppp pap sent-username ***** password *********
 ppp ipcp dns request
 ppp multilink
 ppp multilink links maximum 2
 ppp multilink links minimum 2
 ppp multilink load-threshold 1 outbound
 ppp multilink interleave
