More than 6 networkcards on Slackware 12


as you can see this info are from a Slack12 installation "rc.inet1.conf". I need suport for minimum 10 nic, What do I need to do?

# Compose a list of interfaces from /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf (with a maximum
# of 6 interfaces, but you can easily enlarge the interface limit
# - send me a picture of such a box :-).
# If a value for IFNAME[n] is not set, we assume it is an eth'n' interface.
# This way, the new script is compatible with older rc.inet1.conf files.
# The IFNAME array will be used to determine which interfaces to bring up/down.
MAXNICS=6

I am running 6 NIC now.

As I stated in rc.inet1 long ago ... send me a picture of such a box :-)
Then, simply change the above line to
Code:
MAXNICS=10

Hi,

What about multi port NICs? I think it would be feasible to get more then six with two 4 port NIC. I've not done it but I think it would be possible.

The NIC

I was not meaning (NIC) Sorry for my word of choice.
I am meaning 2 NIC with 4 interface each.
plus 2 built in interfaces.

Total of 10 eth interfaces.

I am using 2 D-Link "DFE-580TX"

Today it is working with dynamips/dynagen and 1 "DFE-580TX"
together with 4 "Realswitches" I have done some config with
routing on a stick and trunks over to the switches.

I have also config switches in 2 separated vlan but in the same network.
did IRB (Bridging) the vlan together on the router.

I have now order one more "DFE-580TX", So I can have some real fun.
So when have recived my second card I will drop an picture.

Why I am doing this? I am preparing for the CCIE lab R&S,
and i need real switches to lab on, QoS on switches and mappings.

Thanks.
