Re: Linux hub
I don't know if it's possible to make a hub with multiples NICs using
Linux, I would say it isn't, cause a hub it's a physical signal repeater
In the case of an ethernet switch, it's possible using "bridge-utils"
package. You need multiple NICs (you can also bridge virtual interfaces
like Xen, but I don't think that's what you're looking for). Once you've
installed the package, you need to use the command "brctl" to create and
configure the bridge.

Does anyone know of documentation for a Linux hub or a Linux
switch? The simplest example I can think of is a system with
a gateway interface transmitting packets for multiple addresses
and subordinate interfaces transmitting packets for one or all
addresses except for the address of the machine itself.
