Thank you again, jggimi

I am concerned about the ECMP, because the machine also does a NAT for the network behind... i.e. each time my BSD decides to use the other route, it will do a NAT with a different source address of the outgoing packets. I am afraid this will not be good, as users behind the NAT need a good and persistent connection.

I tried reading the RFC 2992 for ECMP and there is something like a statement that the hash threshhold method will keep TCP connections' routes persistent, but i am not sure about it

i will try reading the bpf man, although I got scared when I looked at the manual

Thank you again jggimi, please feel free to share any other thoughts you might have here. Thanks!
