eth0 / 1 confused over MAC address??
I'm using Fedora 4 on a firewall box. Had a network problem the other day getting access to the internet.
After pulling my hair out for while I finally managed to sort out the problem. It seemed the two ethernet interfaces confused each others MAC address. I think they may have loaded in a different order.
Anyway, to solve the problem i just clicked the 'probe' using the system-config-network tool. I presume this updated the MAC addresses.
Can anyone shed any light on why this may have occured in the first place and can I hard code the MAC address and interface order to stop this problem reocurring?
