    NIC Configuration Help

    I have a Fedora 10 installation with 3 NICs with the configuration as given below:

    IP :
    Gateway :

    eth1 :

    eth2 :

    All these 3 NICs are connected to separate switches. The problem is I cannot ping to devices from the server.

    I get reply from both and devices.

    Is it not possible to have 3 NICs on the same server ?

    eth2 is a newly added NIC, does it require any other configuration to start working ?

    Please help !

    hello and welcome!

    in short, you should be able to do what you are trying to do.

    in your 3rd switch, are you sure the port is active and needs no configuration to allow your device to use it? do you have a physical link, e.g.:

    ethtool eth2|grep -i 'Link detected'
    what about switch eth1 and eth2 on the F10 box temporarily? give eth2 the ipaddr for eth1, plug it into eth1's switch and make sure it works as expected.
