This is a very vague question and it is hard to help with a complicated setup like this without more information.

By default outgoing traffic will leave by the default gateway.  So if the DG is on eth1 and you SSH to the eth3 interface IP address, chances are it fails because the return traffic is leaving out the other interface.

Without knowing what interfaces are used for what services or purposes it is almost impossible to make a recommendation without possibly breaking something else.

[root@xxxx ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth3
DEVICE=eth3
HWADDR=xxxx

IPV6INIT=no
USERCTL=no
IPADDR=10.1.200.104
NETMASK=255.255.255.192
GATEWAY=10.1.200.126


now when i enable this nic means BOOT=yes - default route used to change to eth3 i dont know how.

and i think thats why its behaving abnormal.

please advice how to fix default gateway also.

Hi

What i will do is the following:

Set cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth3 like this:

DEVICE=eth3
HWADDR=xxxx
NM_CONTROLLED=yes
ONBOOT=no
BOOTPROTO=static
TYPE=Ethernet
IPV6INIT=no
USERCTL=no
IPADDR=10.1.200.104
NETMASK=255.255.255.192

Note: as u can see i'm not defining any gateway for that interface

on /etc/sysconfig/network
add
GATEWAY=X.X.X.X -- > this will be ur default gateway

and for static routes for eth3
on /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth3
define it
GATEWAY0=10.1.200.126
NETMASK0=255.255.255.192
ADDRESS0=10.1.200.104

u can add more routes if u need it

I hope it helps

Regards.
