 Traffic Engineering: Incoming Traffic

On Lamp talks about Traffic Engineering.

"Because the local router determines the route taken by outgoing packets, it isn't difficult to balance outbound traffic over multiple connections. The situation for inbound traffic is different. There are only a few routes you can influence to shift incoming traffic patterns: one for each address block for each ISP you connect to, instead of tens of thousands for outgoing traffic."
