CIPE & Linux bridging|
Actually, I really just need something which can do both broadcast and
multicast in a tunnel sans encryption. The tunel really just exists to carry
those items across mediums which may not support multicast/broadcasts without
it being in a tunnel.
I am not sure, but with tunnels (CIPE or others), is there latency
introducted by the tunnel? It would seem, if a tunnel places multiple
original packets in a tunnel packet, that there may be some artificial
latency while a tunnel 'waits' for packets to fill a buffer. If this is the
case, then a solution which can configure this allowed latency would be
great. I saw GRE (well, saw the title and how expandable it was) but was
looking at CIPE because I really don't need huge things from a tunnel.
Thanks for any info in advance!!
