I use PLIP a lot; it works (almost) just like ethernet and is much faster than
serial connections.  Look at the NET-3 HOWTO and PLIP mini-HOWTO for details.

1. Connecting two networks with two linux boxes.

I have 2 networks each with a linux box as the gateway to the internet.

At the moment they are VPN'd together, but are close enough to get a
cable run and I'd like to connct them like this to make it quicker
so each linux box will have 3 nics in it.

My question is possibly a dumb one! But what should the IP for the 3rd
nic in each box be?

The networks are:
        network         -       linux box internal address
Box 1) 10.0.12.x/24     -       10.0.12.1
Box 2) 192.168.12.x/24 -        192.168.12.1

Should the 3rd NIC in the box 1 be on the 192.168.12.x range, and vice
versa but wouldn't that confuse the other network as it would think that
it is a local IP  when it wouldn't be.

Should they both be on a different range althogether? And then set the
routing up on each.

ie 3 NICS in each
Box1
internal 10.0.12.1
public 123.456.78.2
"intranet" 10.0.13.1

Box2
internal 192.168.12.1
public 423.243.123.32
"intranet" 10.0.13.2

If it was 2 networks with one linux box it would be easy, just not sure
how you'd connect the two boxes together....

Any advice appreciated!
