I have two networks on a server. One being my internal network, and the other being an external IP address. This is on Debian Lenny. Here is my
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 172.16.130.250 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 172.16.120.255 gateway 172.16.130.1 auto eth1 iface eth1 inet static address 24.249.hidden ipaddy netmask 255.255.255.224 broadcast 24.249.hidden broadcast.255 gateway 24.249.hidden gateway
I can reboot my system and sometimes eth1 is accessible from SSH, and other times eth0 is accessible. Then sometimes eth1 will just stop being pingable alltogether. This is a fairly fresh install of Debian, and the only thing I have running is VMWare Server 2.0, bridged to both of my network connections.
