Problem with more than 2 network interfaces
« on: September 01, 2006, 08:37:39 pm »
After happily anticipating the new release, I have installed pluto on a machine with 3 network interface cards.  2 of these NICs are built-into the motherboard and cannot be removed.  One of the built-in cards is problematic.  Therefore, I installed a new card (the 3rd).  Unfortunately, Pluto doesn't give me a choice of which 2 cards to use.  These cards are listed as et0, eth1, and eth2.  eth0 is the bad card that eth2 has replaced.

Each time I want to get eth2 to work, I have to manually edit the /etc/network/interfaces file and do a /etc/init.d/networking restart.  These changes don't hold between reboots.

Does anyone know of where to make these changes so they hold?  The last resort I'd use is changing the /usr/pluto/bin/Network_Setup.sh script.  (BTW, that script only has variables for eth0 and eth1 hardcoded into it.  Not exactly the most elegant solution, but understandable since most people would only need 2 NICs.)

Thanks,
Sevak

you can disable the network card from bios and have only 2.
