2x Gigabit NIC's not talking
Posted on 2007-11-20
I have a Dell server with 2x Gigabit NICs. The 1st NIC is our primary that runs just fine with everything on our network. The issue I'm having is this. I want to connect a Buffalo Terastation Pro II to the 2nd NIC and be able to access the web interface of the Terastation via another computer on the network thats connected to the first Gigabit NIC. The Terastaion can have either DHCP or Static IP's .
I know this is a simple solution but my mind is just blank on how to configure this plus I've been up for 30 hours straight. Th reason for connection the Terastation to the2nd NIC is that it also has a Gigabit connection, so I just want to run it straight to it for backup from the Dell server with nothing in between slowing it down.
1st Nic IP, 192.168.16.3, Subnet 255.255.255.0, GW 192.168.16.1, dns 192.168.16.1
2nd Nic, What should it be?
Terastation IP ?
