I have two linux servers. Each have 2 ethernet ports. I connect port-to-port with straight-through ethernet cables between the 2 servers (there is no network switches involved). I want to bond the 2 interfaces on each side so I have one interface with the sum total of bandwidth. When I use balance-alb for bond, a ping will only work from one side to the other but not vice versa. When I down one of the two slave interfaces then i can ping both directions suddenly. Is it possible what I am trying to do ? I know it works when I use active-backup but that is not what I want. Thanks
