2 static IP addresses on 2 eth cards
I have a Linux Red Hat 7.3 server box with 2 eth cards.
I'd like to assign a static IP address to the first one and another static IP address to the second one.
I've tried using Control Panel->Network configuration, but when I activate both cards no-one works (I've tried to ping from another machine but I receive No Reply).
It works fine if I activate only the first eth card alone.
Is there any configuration file I should manipulate?
it should work fine if you are using correct subnets and so forth, if you use overlapping subnets though the first one will be stopped delibertaley, as it would not make sense to have them both working.
you're using the same gateway for two NIC's on the same system? what is the benefit in that? are you thinking that two NIC's will make your connection twice as fast or something? you can not have two NIC's connected to the same subnet. Ethernet is a bus protocol and so you are just completely breaking the design principles. most people break this by thinking they can take two NIC's and join two other computers directly together with this, by you seem to be saying you're joining them to the very same hub or such like.
to have two cards working they will need to be on compltely different subnets.
