Trouble with ppp, Network card
I run fedora core 2 on a hp proliant m350G4 server. The server basically does all services on the LAN (email-sendmail, www-apache, chat-jabber, dhcp, dns etc). I am currently using dialup but will soon upgrade to a satellite connection. Consequently I bought a second network adapter (the one recommended by hp for this server) and slotted into one of the PCI-X slots. The first NIC (eth0) has a static private ip (192.168.0.9) and whn I configured the second NIC(eth1), I gave it an arbitrary 192.168.0.7 before I get an IP from the new provider. Whenever i bring up eth1, other machines on the network cannot ping either eth1 or eth0 and network services fail. Now when I bring up ppp0, eth1 (192.168.0.9) cannot be reached from anywhere on the network and I guess since its the dns server for the local network, everything fails. Immediately I disconnect ppp0, all is well again. Could someone kindly tell me what I need to do to have this new NIC coexist with everyone else and what I may have to modify to have the satellite connection come in through this eth0.
