Oy, I see a lot of posts about 2nd NICs not working. I get farther than
most of these people, but not far enough.
I'm using RH6.0, and have mostly used the graphical control panel to set
up my NICs.
eth0 uses module rtl8139.
eth1 uses module tulip.
Both kernel modules load okay.
I've set up eth0 as my gateway to the Internet through cable modem and
MediaOne. That works. eth1 is the problem. I've set it up with a
class C address and mask. It activates fine -- ifconfig shows it "up"
okay. I can ping its IP address from within the machine, for what
When I ping the IP address on the Windows machine, on my hub the
activity lights belonging to eth1 and the Win NIC blink in sync. Tells
me the hub is getting a clear enough message from eth1 to know where to
send it on to. But no packets are ever returned.
When I ping eth1 from the Win machine, only one activity light blinks on
the hub -- the one belonging to the Win NIC, of course. The hub doesn't
know where eth1 is.
Suggestions much appreciated.
