Yes, my terminology was incorrect because I was replying in kind with
the other posters. I was actually using trunking to do link
aggregation. However, your point about the hashing algorithm has me
wondering which one I actually used. I remember reading about each
option but I don't recall if I used round-robin or the hashing
algorithm. Perhaps I'll try my test again and see how it goes.
Thanks for the nudge.
