I am running Amazon EC2 instance with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, where I have two network interfaces.

Now:

  1. eth0 is currently active having public ip where I am remotely logged in via SSH, to configure VPN (once VPN is done, I won't be able to remotely access this IP and interface anymore)

  2. eth1 is showing down (using amazon I have assigned on it with another new public ip but can't ping it nor I can login on it using SSH)

  3. once I have eth1 up and remotely accessible, I have to configure VPN client on eth0 to connect to another remote server

How can I make the eth1 up so that I have remote access on eth1 and eth0 can be dedicated for the VPN IPSec host to host?

EDIT:

$ system-config-network-tui
eth1 is added as dhcp

  • If add works without error then config file is correct the rest is other issues for tunnel.
