hi... gonna try to keep it short and clear:
I've got 2 boxes, trying to make this scheme works:
both boxes runnin' slack10.2
both nics on box1: 3com
nic3 on box2: realtek
boxes linked thru twisted cable.
when I put nic2 in box1, under windows nic2 is auto-configured and the internet connection is ok, but under linux such connection get lost, dmesg don't say absolutely nothing related eth*; ifconfig only shows local; nic1_led=bright,nic2_led=dark.
-if I take off nic2, internet is back.
question 1: what should I do to get internet connection on box1 under linux? (plz. be generous with examples..I've got not a clue about net configs)
question 2: how to configure both boxes to connect each other this way: linux<->linux and windows<->linux ?
(with a telnet/ssh connection is enough by now)
waitin' 4 any help,
thanks in advance
