Re: Dual Homing and Subversion or using Subversion in a dual homed en vironment - WebDav & SvnServe

        Wouldn't it be much more easier to use only one but a
Gigabit-Interface? Even if it's possible (I don't know) to use two NICs
you will only have a theoretical bandwith of 200 MBit/sec (assuming you
have two 100 Mbit-Cards). With GBit you can not only double, but
increase your bandwith by factor 10!
