I have to disagree, I've used this howto to do some "complicated"
traffic shaping/routing and worked fine with me, even load balancing /
TEQL, dead gateway detection ...
About the examples used ... I liked of them .... but they hardly matches
what I had in 'real life'... but I can't copy and paste commands from a
HOWTO to my script and expect to work ....
Please, if someone intend to modify this HOWTO, please keep the
Just my 2c.
