When I Debian Linux, it gave me an option of eth0 or eth1, so I know it could see both NICs ... I chose to use eth0 for my internal network, using 192.168.100.43 ...now need to use the second NIC for an external IP of 66.162.xxx.248 .... I've modified /etc/network/interfaces as shown below, but of course, it still doesn't work ... what else do I need to do?
Thanks in advance for the help.
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
# dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
dns-nameservers 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52
iface eth1 inet static
