2 NICs, 2 subnets, 2 paths: can I do this?
Posted on 2004-08-09
I have two machines, each with 2 NICs, connected to the same two subnets (192.168.1. & 192.168.2.). I was thinking of setting up my host tables like this:
192.168.1.12 machineB # machineA looks for machineB on subnet 1
192.168.1.12 machineB # machineB looks for machineA on subnet 2
to spread the traffic between these machines over the two subnets. Am I setting myself up for trouble doing this? Will it work?
I doubt it matters, but I'm running Linux (FC1).
