Multiple NIC Cards
Posted on 2003-02-19
Hello, I have a Dell Pro Edge 2400 Raid 5 Server. This came with Novell Netware 5. Which is a system I'm not very familiar with so I waxed the Novell and Installed Mandrake Linux 9.0 . The Server comes with an integrated NIC card eth0 and two additional cards eth1 & eth2.
Question: what do I need to configure to optimize this server to use all three NIC cards. This is a file server connected to a 25(workstation)computer network it gets a lot of use during a normal business day. It seems to bog down after 6 or 7 people try to save to it at one time and also it seems to loose connection to the workstations I'm forever remapping drives to this server. All the work stations are running Win98, ME or 2000 Pro. I will give a lot of points for helping with this project.
