RHEL6 problem with 2 NICs

I have 2 PCs
PC1 (RHEL5): 2 NICs: 172.29.137.111, 172.29.139.111
PC2 (RHEL6): 2 NICs: 172.29.137.109, 172.29.139.109

From PC3: 172.29.139.11, I can ping both NICs of PC1, but I can only ping 172.29.139.109 of PC2. Routing table of PC1 and PC2 is the same.

Is it related to OS or something, please help me. Thanks.

Hi,

It seems to me that PC2 has a different default gateway value than PC1 so that 172.29.137.109 can not route cannot send the ping reply back.

Cheers,
K.

IPRoute2 a different subject altogether. You must have had a problem about routing, Default gateways, which interface the DG belongs  but I don't think this could go down to RHEL 5/6 or something like that.

Normally you would not need to add routing for any interface which is attached to the system.. There is/was a problem with your routing but somehow you've managed to circumvent it. But I don2t think this is about RHEL6.  There must be something that have altered your routing table..

I'm not sure why RHEL5 can route automatically to outside with 2 NICs but RHEL6 doesn't.
I have to add 2 routing tables for VLAN137 and VLAN139 separately to make it works.
