    Hello,

    Is it possible to make a link aggregation between 2 gigabit Nics for greater throughput and make that channel a vlan trunk so i can use the freebsd box for inter-vlan routing (like a cisco on a stick model in cisco)?

    I currently have a trunk on a gigabit nic on which i have 3 vlans
    1. User's traffic
    2. Security cameras
    3. Mail Server/messenger... etc

    I loaded vlan as a module and worked like a charm.
    ifconfig vlan1 create
    ifconfig vlan1 vlan 1 vlandev bge0 - can i use a lagg channel instead of bge0 in the syntax (ex: ifconfig vlan1 vlan 1 vlandev lagg0)? will it work?
    Up untill now i only tried link aggregation on cisco switches and linksys so this will be a challenge for me :).
