Is BGP the only answer? We have several ISP's providing service to us.
We have our own NIC assigned address block, and a NIC assigned AS number.
We've been trying (for several months) to set up BGP routing between all
of our providers. But we've run into trouble.
One of the providers doesn't want to set up peering with us. Their claim
is that you can have redundant ISP's through other methods than setting up
BGP peering. When pressed, they've been conspicuously quiet about what
these other methods are.
Is there another way to set up redundancy between two ISP's without doing
