Multi-homing (Multiple IP Addresses)

I need to have a Mac respond to two separate IP addresses on separate subnets.  I would prefer to do this with a single Ethernet adapter, but I can add a second one if necessary.

I heard that a future version of Open Transport will directly support this, but I need this capability now.

I'm using OS8 on a Quadra 840.

Does anyone know of software, free or commercial, to do this?

Vicom Internet Gateway will not only handle multihoming but also acts as a router/gateway. ive used it here in a small lab for a few years and it works flawlessly. their web page is at www.vicomtech.com. Although the initial description may not specifically point out its multihoming abilities i assure you it does..=)

This is a reasonable solution to the problem, albeit not anywhere close to optimum.  Even though the software isn't that expensive ($250), it is more than I was hoping to spend.  Regardless, cost was not a real consideration here.

The problem with this solution is that this software is serious overkill for the problem I have (multi-homing).  While I'm sure it will support it, given the other things it does, I'm paying for alot of capabilities I won't use.

THen again, if this thing were to support IP tunnelling as well (which their web site doesn't say, but I sent email asking), it might just be worth it.

Well, at least this is a start.
