Question How do I tell my server to use eth0 for the internet [DNS + gateway] in stead of eth1


Since I have a new internetaccount, 2 days ago, I have a problem on my server [Fedora Core 8]. I use it as a router.

eth0 is for the internet.
eth1 is for my LAN.

But since my new internetaccount my server uses eth1 for the internet.
This is a line from my syslog:

NetworkManager: <info> Policy set 'System eth1' (eth1) as default for routing and DNS.
I killed the NetworkManager daemon and now it works but this must not be the way to do it ??

Where do I tell my server that I use eth0 for routing and DNS?

Apparently you configured a default gateway in NetworkManager for eth1. Don't do that. You can only have one default gateway, and it should be on your interface that points to your Internet provider.
