Is it possible to put a core behind a core?
« on: November 11, 2011, 06:38:50 pm »
 ???
I was just wondering something. I am setting up a development core, to start working on some things in 10.04.
Do I need to pull out my old wireless router, run the internet to it, and then to the core followed by hooking up a second core to it.
Or can I put a dev core on the internal LMCE network?

I would prefer to do this, that way when I am not working on something, I can boot the machine up as a Media Director.

Thanks.

You will run into trouble with two cores on the same LAN as both are DHCP servers.
Your idea of a second router to create a 2nd separate LAN will work, or if you have a powerful enough machine you can create a 10.04 VM and set it up with 2 nics, one NAT and one internal network.

i use a spare router to separate my test core on the internal net of my production core, which is necessary, yeah.
you will also want to change the internal network subnet on your test core to something else too (i use 192.168.81.x)
