Mutihoming with one Ethernet interface
Authored by: tc_nyc on Jun 10, '09 04:58:08PM

Did you experiment and test this with a simulated failure?

It seems to me that this might not work because when the primary ISP connection goes down, the cable/dsl modem will still provide a link and DHCP addresses even though traffic will not flow. I don't think OS X will treat a virtual ethernet port as 'dead' or 'unplugged' unless the physical link actually goes down, so it will never actually switch to the other connection.
