For example, I have 2 Etherexpress 16 nics in my firewall at home. To set
them up I added this to my /etc/conf.modules:
alias eth0 eexpress
alias eth1 eexpress
options eth0 -o eexpress-1 io=0x270 irq=3
options eth1 -o eexpress-2 io=0x300 irq=5
In my case I needed to put the -o eexpress-1 and -2 so that the eexpress
modules would load 2x under seperate names. Since you have 2 different
Nics, you shouldn't have to have that option.

Hi, I am just learning LINUX and about networking. I really could use a
little bit of help. I just installed RedHat 4.2 on a PC, and I am just
getting the hang of it. But I don't seem to have it all down yet.
Thing is, I am really happy with the control panel in RedHat, I know it
has probably already saved me hours of setting up LINUX (eventually, I
will learn how to do things with out it, but for now its great). And I
use the Network Configurer dialog boxes to set things up, and it seems to
work well, thing is, I don't know what I am doing still.
I simply entered a new interface in the "interfaces" dialog box to connect
to my service provider using a PPP connection, and that went really
smooth. And I also used the "Names" dialog box to change the name of my
system, and that went smooth (locally).
I don't know where to go from here. I can SEND mail from this system
routed up through my PPP connection, and the mail goes through. I have
sent several test messages to friends, and they get mail that is from me
messages back. Now, there is a routing problem some where, I realize
that, but I don't know how to fix it.
I tried adding a "Host" (using the "hosts" dialog box) to my sustem that
was my gateway to the outside world, that would be my PPP IP # for this
login, and I started to add an interface in the "routing" dialog box, but
I am not sure what I am suppose to enter, I got as far as specifing the
ppp0 connection, and in network address I put the IP for the routed PPP
connection (not sure if that was right), but I don't know what goes in the
"netmask" or "gateway" addresses (or even if this is what I need to be
As far as I have seen now, if I telnet to my .edu acount and login, I can
recieve mail from my local host, but not send it back. I can run "finger"
from my .edu account and if I put in my local host I get "host not found"
at my local host (about 4 at the time, logged in 3 xterms as root, and one
as a user).
Now, if I can SEND mail from my local host, and I can finger the local IP#
for my PPP interface, why can't I send any mail back?
Do I have to register my local host somewhere and get an "offical" IP
address to set my system at? Do I just pick one and hope it's not someone
elses? What am I supposed to be doing here? In the "Network
Configurator" box off the control panel, what do all these "Names,"
"Hosts," "Interfaces," and "Routing" really mean? What should I have set
up in then to get to the point where I can send mail from another server
to my local host?
Thanks, you LINUX guys are soo great, I NEVER would have gotten this far
without all the help I have found in the comp.os.linux.* groups! I am
learning a awsome new completly powerful OS and loving every second of it!
