...no, you would'nt have a 'cummulated' bandwith.
simply, each 'uplink' to your provider(s) has different
ip's from different ip-aggregates (different routing-pathes,
different as'es, different providers.....)
sure, you can bind cipe to maybe a third interface
(the inner one of your router, with the appropirate
but you can't route the traffic to both external-if's
to use a accumulated bandwith of both links.
it's a routing decision taken by your router's default
route, or by your own handmade (static) routing-table.
the traffic of any cipe-tunnel has to go throug one
interface, and the traffic back to your node has to
go 'virtually' the same way back... standart ip-routing
(except assymetric-routing, but this is mostly a faulty
configuration/routing-table at your providers network)
the one and only way to do this is policy-routing, but this
'feature' is not possible with a cipe-connection, because,
the traffic-type of a cipe-tunnel is always the same, due
to the fact, that the content of each packet is encrypted.
policy-routing with traffic sorta like ftp or http can be
routed trough different links only if the router 'see's'
the 'traffic-type' so that the router can choose from a
preconfigured table which link the traffic should be routed
why don't take two tunnels, one on each link, well it will end's
up in a 'ugly_configurationmadness' to get up a usable routing
between one endpoint and the both tunnels to use the full bw ;-)
...assumed that the tunnel-peer on the single-end has enough
bandwith to fill up both tunnels... but this is another story...
(p.s. tdsl + ish/cablecom ?)
