[ Can't get the second NIC to work... }

Post by Douglas M. Pervin » Fri, 30 Jun 2000 04:00:00


  I have a RH6.2 (kernel-2.2.14-61) server up and running with one
NIC.    I've added another one and when the system boots there is no
conflicts or problems..     At*I gave the second NIC the same IP
address as the*NIC.   My RH server is also a DHCP and SAMBA/PDC
server..    The client fails to get an IP address from the server
that is on the second NIC.   Thus the Samba log-on fails also.  I've
tried giving the second NIC a different IP address.    I've tried
giving the client a static IP address....    Nothing seems to work..

  When I do the 'ifconfig' command I get a good response..   It tells
me eth0 and eth1 are up with good status..    This problem is a
killer..    If anyone could possibly help me, I'd greatly appreciate
