Don't get it. If I understand Andrew, it is not question of ip address each
zone has. Problem is that if 2 zones need to communicate between them,
althogh one should think that communication will be done regularly thru
network, in fact they will communicate directly thru ip stack of server.
I have some network setup, with lot of routers, switches etc - for test
purposes. In order to have some clients on that network, my idea was do
partition sun server into zones. Each zone should have ip address from
different ip subnet. Since server has QuadFE card, each zone could have its
ony physical NIC port. I.e
zone1 has ip address:192.168.1.10/24, DG 192.168.1.1, NIC qfe1
zone 2 has ip address 172.16.2.10/24, DG 172.16.2.1, NIC qfe2
If zone1 communicate to zone2, willit send packets to network or will it
recognize that these zones are on same server and route traffic directly
thru ip stack of sun server andpacket should never leave nic port. Which one
is it then ?
