Using SLES10 SP2 and need to get multi-nic configured correctly. 1 nic is
on
a network and the other nic is on another network. Using yast->routing what
is the correct way to configure this 2 nic (on the 192.168.123 network)?
When I put in the expert config section of routing, dest 192.168.123.0 and
give it a gateway of the 192.168.123 network, somethings stop working. So
my
question is how is a dual nic system suppose to be setup using routing?


What are you trying to accomplish?, failover?, double throughput?

Chris,

Sorry, I've been following along, but I still don't know enough about your
network topology to make a guess at how to make your

"email work without any dropped connection error from the email client"

I know Theo, Anders and Ciro could give you a one sentence solution to your
problem it they had a good picture of your layout and what it is you are
trying
to do. And... Sometimes a picture is worth a 1000 words. So could you try and
give us a simple picture of what you have? Something simple like the following
would help. Just make the changes needed and post it back:

Box
--------
| IP: 192.168.123.4
NIC1: +-----------------------[ bound to specific ip for email ]
| IP: 192.168.123.0
| NM: 255.255.255.0
|
| 192.168.124.3/24
NIC2: +----------------------[ bound to specific ip for edir] IP:........
| IP: 192.168.124.0 | \
| NM: 255.255.255.0 | \
-------- |
------[client2]IP:........192.168.123.247
|
[client 3] IP:.........

Also, give:

04:22 nirvana:/srv/www/download/screenshots/ms> route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.6.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo

The you can explain that you are on [client 2] running kmail trying to access
your mail on [x.y.z.a] and you get the following error:

I am on client 2 running an email proggie (not kmail) entourage (remember
this client is not the problem but the problem is on an opensuse system).
When I access email I get a connection to the server has been dropped.
