SSI or not??

http://www.unix.com – I'm new to HPC so forgive me if this question is extremely simple. I have a cluster and each node has multiple NICs. I need the master to be able to see the nodes NICs as if they were it's own. The vision is being able to run ifconfig and see a bunch of ethX entries on the master when in fact say eth1 - eth15 are located on other nodes. While researching a solution I came across OpenSSI and thought this would provide the correct functionality, but the only thing I can do is list the local interfaces on nodes with the 'node X ifconfig' command. Is SSI even the technology that'll make (HowTos)
