Multihomed network is one of the most efficient configuration to improve response time of network services. However, it is hard to introduce or manage because the existing configuration methods have several problems in that they require much technical skill, involve administrative over-burden for the administrator and so on. In this paper, we propose a dynamic traffic sharing technique and a suitable backbone selection metrics to address some of these problems. Using the proposed technique, an appropriate backbone can be selected per connection with mini-mal technical skill and low administrative cost. In addition, the proposed metrics performs more efficient traffic sharing as compared to others techniques that were investigated.
