2ndPc eth1 -------------> 3rdPc eth0
3rdPC eth1 -------------> 1stPC eth0
Fine, Can Anyone Help In Achieving the above......
I mean the IP/DefaultGateway/SubnetMask to be set on each PC's NIC.
Thanks In Advance
That's easily done, but you don't provide any information. What version/distro of Linux? What network configuration? What are you trying to accomplish?
Unless you want those three PC's to ONLY see each other, and not get out to any other networks/Internet, your configuration is fine. Just set the NIC's up, giving each a different address, and setting the default gateway to be the NIC address of the next one in the ring.
FWIW, though...plugging the three PC's into any standard switch/router, will take care of IP addresses, default gateways, and everything else, including routes to your external network(s), and you'll only need one NIC in each PC.
