[Gluster-users] Stupid question re multiple networks

AFAIK multiple network scenario only works if you are not using Gluster 
via FUSE mounts or gfapi from remote hosts. It will work for NFS access 
or when you set up something like Samba with CTDB. Just not with native 
Gluster as the server always tells the clients which addresses to 
connect to: ie your storage hosts will always supply the connection 
details of the hosts that are configured in gluster to your storage clients.

I wonder if this could be gaffer-taped with some bridging/vlan/arp 
spoofing trickery but I'm not sure I'd trust such a hack.

It would be *really* nice if there was a way to set up gluster so you 
could specify different IPs for backend and frontend operations.
