Exclamation Network bridge

I've got two eth adapters, each connected to another network. I don't know what (or where) I need to configure to bridge the two network connections (in wingoz it's a matter of point'n'click, but I don't trust that thing too much).

What do I need to set up to bridge the two connections? Or, another question... How can I be seen as part of both networks, when the connection is not bridged? (I don't think i can run 2 samba servers, plus it wouldn't be a solution)

Have you looked at: <>

You can probably ignore the bits about spanning trees.

Hope this helps!

thx for the link, kbcnetau.

however i cant seem to be able to get it to work. i am trying bridge the NIC's that connect to the internet. after adding a new bridge and adding all the ethn's to the bridge, everytime i type "ifconfig bridge up" my comp gets slower and slower and eventually freezes. i'm using slackware 10 kernel 2.6.7 i have 4 eth's 3 connecting to internet, the other one will be used for lan later. any help would be appreciated
