So traffic that passes from Sprint lines to Telefonica lines has to be regulated by someone. Should it automatically be the US? I don't know - I think a worldwide organization would be better at covering this. These are not, and should never be, be regulated at all. The links from network to networ...

No actually that is not true. We the consumer pay for ALL the lines. There are Federal laws (at least in the US) that prohibit the telcos from owning the lines. These laws were put in place to keep one telco, say Verizon, from pushing another telco out of the market by over charging them for usage ...

No this is not true, I have already addressed this in my previous post. They own the quipment but NOT the lines. Please people look into the telco laws before you speak on this. Now if it has changed in the last year I apologize but as far as I know this is NOT true. I believe you are confusing ban...

The funny thing is they may own the equipment but we, the consumer, own the lines. However with each monthly bill we continue to pay for the lines. You would think that they have been paid off by now. I do believe these companies own the lines and the equipment, wether they are paid off or not. For...

I know these companies own their own lines. But their lines are pretty much what all internet traffic goes through. Without these companies, there would be no internet. We must agree to whatever they put in their contracts to have the internet. They are the ones who dictate everything, not ARIN or I...

Re: who owns the internet?

who owns the internet? I believe the following companies own the majority of the internet: MCI AT&T Sprint Genuity PSINet XO Communications Verio Qwest Global Crossing Wouldn't they have the most say in how the networking works? They can simply dictate everything in their contracts: "Get your IPs d...

i'm using fedora core 3, and those files don't seem to be there. perhaps i'd need to make them myself. However, this method does seem to be working now and i'm happy with it. The link you gave me did help, I learned I needed to flush the route. I did things slightly different, but I think I have the...

Do you even need policy based routing? Like I said, you can make your default route your cheap line and then add static network routes for address ranges you want to go out the expensive interface: # route add default gw 204.15.230.1 eth1 # route add -net 12.12.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 64.34.37.2...

it doesn't seem to work perfectly I have to add the ip address specifically it looks like, such as: ip rule add from 64.34.37.233/27 table 1 then it gets routed fine on that ip, but when i delete that rule, its still routed there... like it remembers even tho the rule is gone. It'll be a pain to hav...

policy based routing?

I believe policy based routing is what's best for my situation, but I have no experience in it and am not sure exactly how to set it up. Here is my situation: I have 2 network adapters, eth0 and eth1. eth0 has 64.34.37.224/27 with a gw of 64.34.37.225. eth1 has 204.15.230.0/24 with 204.15.230.1. I h...

at least I learned something

*looks around* So what's hyperthreading?

edit: nevermind, found it. seems to have the same effect though... my spiking application isn't affecting overall performance.

one of my applications spikes up to 100% for several seconds, cripling the performance of all the others. I'm trying to avoid this.

Thanks for the information though, are you ever not helpful?
