Combining 'NIC Cards


Hi guys, hopefully someone can help me out,

my problem is as follows,

I have 2 PC's both running redhat 9 and both work as ftp servers. One of the PC's holds the DNS I log into in order to send / recieve files from BOTH PC's. Both PC's have 600 Gigz on them and i used a NFS to combine both hd's one on PC. So when i log in i have access to all 1.2 TB.

The problem i am having is that what i want to happen is that if i download from the PC with the DNS i want it to send/recieve using IT'S NIC card, but if i grab something off the NFS mounted drive (which is from the 2nd PC) i want it to send/recieve from IT'S NIC card instead of LAN'ing to the first PC's nic Card and then sending out the data through the first PC's nic card again.

Both servers are 100Mb dedicated so to make the question a little less complicated i want to make it a 200Mb.

If you need ne clarification (cuz i think i explained the problem kind of iffy.. let me kno and i'll make sure to make it clearer.

Thanks in advance for any help

Unless you have these two PC's daisy chained to both have a connection, you shouldn't have this problem.

If you have a setup like:

Code:
Connection (ISP) --> Modem/DSL/Cable --> Router/Switch
                                         |           |
                                         |           |
                                        PC1         PC2
When ftp'ing, it won't pass the data thru the DNS server, its only there to tell the connection where that connection is and how to find it, etc.

so if i ftp in and grab something off the NFS mounted drive it will transmit the data off IT'S nic card to me right?

Yeah, DNS just is just a translator, the actual data isn't going to pass thru its NIC or computer unless you had the FTP server connected directly from the DNS, daisychained.. and whoever told you this fib should be slapped around..

damn..... i just ran the server and it did exactly wthat that individual was talking about.

I ftp in to the FIRST server.. and when i grab something off the NFS mounted drive it uploads it to the FIRST server ( the one i just ftpd into) and THEN sends it to me........... this is VERY bandwidth intensive...... and retarded.. is there no way i can donwnload the NFS mounted hd's data from IT'S nic' card without having it upload to the first server and then to me?
