Duplicating DSL connection


I already know I can "duplicate" my DSL connection (starting more than one connection with my username on the same modem/computer) with Linux (I can do it with Windoze too, it's you don't know how, ask me ) but not all progs are well made, so very few progs let me choose wich interface/ip I want to use.

Is there a way to do to divide my progs over my active interface? The idea is to have my browsers connected to "interface 1", my licq/gaim/irc to the second one and my servers to a last one

I want to do this because my ISP give my only a 130k/sec limit of download and 16k/sec upload, but my modem is able to handle 3.5Mb speed so it can be VERY useful to duplicate my connection

Have you got a router in between the services and the isp connection? If you do you could setup the routing tables to direct traffic to the right interface.
Depending on your setup iptables should be able to redirect some of the traffic to the right interface. And most proper services should be able to bind to a specific interface. Just read the docs. Otherwise you can get them to do so by using xinetd.

Would you care to enlighten me on how you managed to duplicate your dsl connection? The only way I would see possible is if the ISP would allow you to get more then one IP address. My ISP has got the mac-address of my network card hardcoded and it will only give me one IP for that mac-address. Ofcourse I'm using cable and not DSL. But isn't DSL based on similar principles.

DSL use a different principe, I think the "trick" can works with most of DSL ISP. However it's not very legal, my curent ISP "tolerate" 2 IP adress (but the modem can handle up to 6 as I see), some ISP will tell you can do it, but they don't support it, I know one they do not accept it...

Your cable use DHCP for connection, right? DSL need to be "manually" connected... If you have an hub/router/getaway you can easily start "fake" connection with Linux.

Just type "adsl-connect & " (assuming adsl-connect is the command to connect yourself to your dsl).
Since you can't start more than one DHCP, you can't do it with cable (I hate cable connection hehehe )

In windoze, just download more than one DSL connection progs. Habitually, these progs don't see others runing dsl progs so you can connect more than one time (I like windoze cuz when it's buggy )

Ok ic. Probably won't last long before ISP's will be blocking that too.
ADSL is still slower then cable in the area where I live so I'll stick to cable for now. Unless I could get myself SDSL which they are just starting to bring out here. But I doubt it's cheap.
