Submission + - Linux and multiple internet uplinks: a new tool

Alessandro Zarrilli writes: Linux is able do multipath routing since a long time: it means being able to have routes with multiple gateways and to use them in a (weighted) round-robin fashion. But Linux misses a tool to actively monitor the state of internet uplinks and change the routing accordingly. Without it, on a LAN perspective, it's like having a RAID0 on network: just one uplink goes down and all of your LAN-to-WAN traffic goes down too. Documentation and examples on the subject are lacking, existing solutions are few and deeply integrated in firewall/routing specific distributions. To address these issues, a new stand alone tool was just released: Fault Tolerant Router. It also includes a complete (iptables + ip policy routing) configuration generator.

Submission + - Comcast-TWC Merger Review On Hold->

An anonymous reader writes: When the U.S. Federal Communications Commission began reviewing the merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable, it impose a 180-day deadline on the review process. The agency has now pushed that deadline back a few weeks after learning that TWC withheld over 7,000 documents they shouldn't have. TWC originally claimed the documents fall under attorney-client privilege, but that appears not to be the case. Perhaps more disturbing, the article says another 31,000 "went missing" because of a vendor error. (Perhaps even more disturbing is that this is a drop in the bucket compared to the sum total of information TWC dumped on the FCC — apparently over 5 million pages. How they can be expected to properly review that much material is beyond me.)

The FCC is also ready to close the public comment period for the merger, during which over 600,000 comments were filed. Critics are making their final arguments and Comcast is tallying up all the nice things people (and companies, and paid public relations agencies) had to say.
