Multi NIC question
I have 2 NICs, a 10Mbit Katron RJ45/Coax PCI and a 10/100 IBM EtherJet. If I have one computer connected to each NIC how do I make my computer to forward the signals so that the to connected can see eachother in the network. I'm leaving M$ Windoze for SuSE linux soon so I'd like 2 solutions.
/Thanx in advance Arvid
I think you are asking how you connect your two computers together. I assume you only want to share files and maybe a printer. You will want a crossover cable to physically connect to two machines.

Well, that wasn't the question. But thanks anyway. I have TWO NICs in my computer and one computer connected to each of them, so we ar THREE. I want to forward the signals to the other computer from, um, the third computer. Another possible situation is that I'm connected to a hub with on NIC and to a computer with the other.
Well, for Linux the solution is actually easier than it is for Win9x. You need to actually 'route' between the two networks. Win9x will not do this on its own. For Linux, you would just add a static route between the two networks. For Windows 9x, you need to add some kind of software package that will let it act as a router. That is, unless someone knows a registry hack to turn on IP forwarding...
