Netbook acting as a server and as a switch
I want to use 2 network cards on a notebook (one internal and one by USB). I don't want the typical "internet sharing", so I want it to act really as a switch:
Other room <== 1Gb/s ==> Notebook <== 100Mb/s ==> network switch with more computers.
I want to do it because i want to use the 1Gb/s link from the other room to the "servers" room, and then the rest of servers will run at 100Mb/s.
I wanna all my computers in the same network, like there's no notebook in the middle, so the Notebook will act as a switch (and a server).
i wanna (assumming all of this is possible):
If this is possible, can you teach me how should i configure my network in linux (exactly openSUSE)? (how to configure eth0, eth1, etc) I was thinking about it, but nothing comes to my mind...
