Running r3.2 v4.2 on a LAT network and the box is connected to a VAX using a 3com etherlink III card and TSSnet.  Would like to add a 2nd network card to this box and connect to an NT network using tcp/ip.  I would assume it would involve using a 2nd tcp/ip address.  How do you install and configure a 2nd ethernet card.  Thanks for your help.

This depends very much in the type of card you purchase. Most liekely you will receive an installer with that card. It will also supply you with specific drivers. The installer (if of reasonable quaility) will prompt you for most settings and issue the commands to configure the card. So it is quite difficult to answer your question in further detail, before you installed the card and see if problems remain. Anyhow there are commands which configure network interfaces (ifconfig in particular).

What is an tcp/ip address? There is an ip number, a internet address and more basic a ethernet number. The first 2 you have to provide in accordance with your domain manager. The latter will be hardwired on the network card.

Hope this help, if you have more specific Qs after you installed the card, let me know.
