Troubles with Server's Connections

I am working with a server that runs SuSE Enterprise. I have been trying to get a subversion repository running, and in the course of that realized that I couldn't provide online access through the subnet that I was on(.4). It seemed simpler at the time to just use the second NIC that was already in the server to access it from the other subnet(.2). Now not only will it not get any internet access (even though I have set apache to listen to the port it is using, and opened that port on the firewall), I can't even access that computer from the .4 subnet, which is odd, considering that every computer on the .2 subnet is accessible from the .4 subnet aside from this one. From the .2 network, however, I can still access the server, but it still will not pick up any signals from the internet. Please help... Thanks!

When it comes to any specific network application you should first check your firewall. Make sure that you allow incoming connect requests for the port that your application (Subversion or any other network service application) listens to.

In your case I would first disable the second NIC. It is only going to make things more confusing until you get your application working.

I actually had subversion working through apache, accessible throught the intranet, when I turned on the second NIC. I finally just gave up on making that configuration work and put SVN on a different server that is on the .2 network, the used NFS to mount a directory on my fileserver for the repository. Thanks very much for the help, but I think that this configuration will work fine for now.
