Hello SuSE folkz,
Is it possible to widen network bandwidth by using two NIC's in one box
assigned to the same IP?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

AFAIK, channel aggregation could be made to work, with effort. It's a little more than giving the same IPs to the NICs.

Get the latest kernel and look in networking section. I'm not sure that this is all it takes, sorry for not beeing able to tell more than "yes it can be done".
