LACP

This is not a post about LACP. This post is about failover redundancy (active/passive) and Link Aggregation.

LACP allows you to run network traffic over multiple interfaces between a single source and multiple destinations.

Setting up a (brand new) Juniper EX2200c (the 12 port fanless version of the EX2200) to use LACP with a Mac Pro.

I have a FreeNAS machine which has 4 ethernet ports on it. I’d like to setup LACP so I can get more than 1 Gbit of traffic on/off the NAS. In order to do this, I need to make some changes to both my FreeNAS machine and my switch.
