What is that colon at the end ?


MRTG normally graphs the IfIn and IfOut octets.  You can tell MRTG to
show them the other way around by putting a negative sign in front of
the target:

Target[xxx.xxx.207.252_25]: 25:read at xxx.xxx.207.252

Target[xxx.xxx.207.252_25]: -25:read at xxx.xxx.207.252

Combined with the simple arithmetics that MRTG can do I guess the
following should work (didn't try it):

Target[xxx.xxx.207.252_25]: -25:read at xxx.xxx.207.252 + 25:read at xxx.xxx.207.252

This must be on one line and you must use the spaces around '+'.

Don't forget to adjust the MaxBytes setting.  Your total amount of
bandwidth seems to be doubled and thus you should double MaxBytes.
