assigning ip's to multiple NIC's in a Fedora Core 4 box
Good day. I would like to describe what we are trying to accomplish and get your opinion.
We have one of our servers that has two network connectors. It is running Linux (Fedora Core 4). This is what we are trying to do.
- Have IP (example 126.96.36.199) going to one of the NICís (which it currently is) running one Tomcat program
- Have IP (example 188.8.131.52) going to the other NIC and running a different Tomcat program
As formatted above, all the traffic seems to be going over the .12 and nothing going over the .13 address
From what we were able to find out on the internet, in order to do this, one of the first three octets of the IP need to be different from each other.
We would like to accomplish the following:
A Ė Have both NICís operating independent of each other running their respective programs
B Ė Be able to control the flow of data to each IP
We set the .13 address using the ifconfig command, but apparently there is more to it than that. If possible, any assistance on this it would be appreciated.
