is there a market for this?

As for the other implication, although I personally don't run or
intend to run networks using normal unix boxes as routers (and BTW,
PCI bus covers Power-PC hardware, Alphas and soon Suns, too!), I know of
organizations like Demon in the U.K. that run almost exclusively this
way and seem to like it a lot.

UK and Netherlands :slight_smile:

They seem to work well as routers with ethernet, fast ethernet and
fddi, and we make quite a bit of use of the ZNYX multi-port ethernet
cards where we need higher port density.

We ended up buying a non-PC router when we wanted a HSSI connection
somewhere. Has anyone found a nice HSSI-PCI card that has support
in any of the BSD-a-likes ?


Check out, I believe they have a HSSI card for a PCI bis

We tested this card, you dont want it in your network.
