Single to Double NIC
Revision as of 14:15, 18 December 2007 by Matthew (Test warning)
When switching from a Single NIC setup to using dual NICs, Changes need to be made in several places.
- Web Admin: Advanced menu > Network > Network Settings (more or less optional) (WARNING: one test of this step caused unexpected network operation Matthew 07:15, 18 December 2007 (MST)).
- Web Admin: Show devices tree/My Devices/CORE > Device data/Network Interfaces
- Change: eth0,dhcp|eth0:0,192.168.80.1,255.255.255.0 to: eth0,dhcp|eth1,192.168.80.1,255.255.255.0
- /etc/network/interfaces (can be edited from the launch manager).
- Comment out eth0:0 related entries:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback address 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 iface eth0 inet dhcp #auto eth0:0 #iface eth0:0 inet static # address 192.168.80.1 # netmask 255.255.255.0 */ This sets eth0 to use DHCP to connect to cable/DSL/etc. automatically */ iface eth1 inet static address 192.168.80.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 */ This sets eth1 to use the internal network */ auto eth1 auto eth0
- You may need to edit /etc/iftab as well and add a line similar to the eth0 one for your new eth1 with it's own unique MAC address. See man iftab for more details on this file.
