I stand corrected. What if I create virtual interfaces with faked
MAC addresses, would you call that multihoming?
Nope. The original meaning is that a multihomed machine has two (or
more) physical network interfaces which are connected to distinct
network subnets or collision domains. Virtual interfaces don't count,
nor would various forms of link aggregation like Cisco's EtherChannel
or IEEE 802.3ad LACP.
