ch packet, it is also useful to have multiple

network interfaces so it can be installed parallel to the unicast router for those sites with configurations like this:

		+----------+
		| Backbone |
		|   Node   |
		+----------+
		     |
 ------------------------------------------ External DMZ Ethernet
	  |               |

     |  Router  |    |  mrouted |
     +----------+    +----------+
	  |               |
 ------------------------------------------ Internal DMZ Ethernet

This configuration allows the mrouted machine to connect with tunnels to other regional networks over the external DMZ and the physical backbone network, and connect with tunnels to the lower-level mrouted machines over the internal DMZ, thereby splitting the load of the replicated packets. The mrouted machine would not do any unicast forwarding.

Note that end-user sites may participate with as little as one workstation that runs the packet audio and video software and has a tunnel to a network-provider node.

RFC 1112 gives the details.
