need two nics to run at the sametime , ubuntu server
Posted on 2009-07-06
I have a server with two nic cards running with jaunty .
both nics have public pppoe static address's from my ISP. i have managed to get both nics activated with the appropriate ip .
The default interface is eth0 .My issue is when i try to ping my eth1 nic it comes back unsuccessful , however i can see that the eth1 nic is getting the packets ok but just not sending them back .
When I disable eth0 , all connections drop . I have tried taking down both nics and setting them up one by one and everything works perfert until I try and use them at the same time .
My goal is get have both interfaces to be able to send and receive ok .
Please let me know if you need more info
Here is a copy of my ineterfaces file
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet ppp
iface eth1 inet ppp
pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 up # line maintained by pppoeconf
pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth1 up
