Problem with two nics


Hi,

I have a RH 8 machine with two nics, one is in promisc mode.

I think that the cars that is in promisc mode doesnt work well, I also looked at the output of ifconfig -a and saw that they are in the same Interrupt.

Is it should be in this way ? I dont think so... and how to change in if this is the problem?


eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:A0:24:F0:1D:5D
UP BROADCAST RUNNING PROMISC MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:2 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:1 frame:0

If the NICs are PCI cards, then they should be able to share interrupts without any problem. PCI defines a way for a card to be identified (by its position on the bus) after the interrupt is raised, so it does support IRQ sharing. That's always assuming that it's correctly implemented in both of the cards.

In general, interrupts are assigned by the plug and play subsystem of the BIOS when the computer first boots up. It's also possible to assign them through I plug and play kernel module I suspect.

Hope that helps,
