The present invention resides in a method of transmitting data packets between a first node coupled to be in communication with a first network and a second node coupled to be in communication with a second network, the first network and the second network coupled to be in communication with a plurality of network interfaces. The method includes measuring a forward data flow rate and a reverse data flow rate between the first node and the second node, determining an aggregate data flow rate based on the forward flow rate and the reverse flow rate, and assigning data flow to one or more of the network interfaces based on an available bandwidth of each network interface and the aggregate data flow rate.
