Re: 2 e1000 interfaces not working together

Yes, that was also my thinking when we got the first machine with two
interfaces. The solution that we have no is to assign each of the
interfaces a different subdomain and then make all the clients for
our co-workers usee one domain, and all computers which are used by
students use the other sub-domain. Having this a route for each of
the interfaces, things are ok again, or aren't they?
As I understand it, traffic coming in on eth0 is recognized by the
kernel as such and it knows that an answer has to be sent via eth0.
or is this false?
The second strange thing is, that the computer can not communicate
the network as soon as both interfaces are ifup'd
Both IP-Adresses are from the same subnet, have the same
the same gatewway.
This is not a good idea. By having 2 different interfaces on the
same subnet you are creating 2 different routes to this subnet.
You should definitely only have one default gateway (unless you
are doing split-routing, or something).
What exactly is psplit-routing?
Me too, since this is not the first computer with this setup, all
others work perfectly well.
However, I am surprised that they both break, as I would have
expected one of them to continue working.
I'll try the one or the other. Maybe it is a problem with the Intel
Hardware. It does not like such setups, or so...
If you must have both interfaces on the same subnet then I would
look into bonding (using the "ifenslave" package), or bridging
(using the "bridge-utils" package). Your choice would depend on
what your objective is.
Hope this helps,
a little bit, thanks.
