Does anyone make?


Im thinking of a device tht would hook up to my linux box that would allow me to keep plugging in ethernet cards and assigning them ip address's, doesnt need t be inside the box, could come out the back.

Is there any such thing? Seeems usiong ip domain hosts work much better then virtual hosts to anyday of the week.

Thhanks,

P.S. I can't remember how we use to do it, but we use to have a "BBS* called Global Frontiers, then New Frontiers, that had 90+ modems hooked up to one little 486 25mhz or so, so maybe it's possible.

What are all these nics going to be connected to?
Why not just get a switch?

I've got about 6 or 7 routers and hubs laying in boxes in the garage, I've got two of them hooked up together right now to accomodate what I've got so far, so I t wouldn't be hard to get a couple more cat cables, a dozen or so $19.95 ethernet cards and hook it all up. It just depends if they make something that will hook up all those nics to one pci slot ion the MB.

P.S. Please explain what a switch is, its function, and roughly what they cost and do. Is a hub the same thing, I've got about 3 linkdyd 5 port hubs sitting in the garage that I could us if that is a switch.

Can't you just bind additional addresses to the single NIC? I do this all the time in BSD (since IP hosting is so much better than vhosting when e-mail is involved).

A switch does the same thing as a hub, EXCEPT it is point-to-point dedicated bandwidth (on non-broadcast and multicast traffic) instead of shared bandwidth.

I was reading the manual, or maybe mireading it, and I thought it said that by binding IP address's to a nic that those IP's would not be available outside of the local network (i.e. the web).

You would need to have your ISP assign you IP addresses no matter which way you do it. As soon as you have the ip's you can route them all to the same nic. You can't just make up valid ip's yourself.

I'm still trying to figure out what you are attempting to do. Could you be more specific as to what you are going to do with a ton of network cards?

One port per domain name. Works well, when I try to go the virtual route, I usually get 2 domains to come up and hte third defaults to the default domain, or the www. part of a domain doesnt work when Im using virtual name servers.

What does your virtual name server blocks look like? You can xxx out the domains if you like.

Do you mean the virtual server part of apache.conf?

This hosts one page on example1.com and other internal addresses, and another page on example2.com and port 81.


Code:
#
# Use name-based virtual hosting.
#
NameVirtualHost *:80
NameVirtualHost *:81
#
# NOTE: NameVirtualHost cannot be used without a port specifier 
# (e.g. :80) if mod_ssl is being used, due to the nature of the
# SSL protocol.
#

#
# VirtualHost example:
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for requests without a known
# server name.
#
<VirtualHost *:81>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/tysk
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName example1.com
    ServerName rdserver
    ServerName 10.0.0.10
    ServerName localhost
    ServerName 127.0.0.1   
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName example2.com
    DocumentRoot /var/www/tysk
</VirtualHost>
