Suse 11 router with Quad port card

view full story

http://www.linuxforums.org – Hello: I'm using Suse 11 as a router. The machine is a thin blade with room for only one card: a network card. I'm using the network port on the motherboard as my external network port, and the network card as my local port. Everything works fine. I'm thinking of replacing my network card with a four port card: Intel PRO/1000 PT Quad Port Server Adapter see: ebay Item number: 170418034154 Then I'd like to configure the four ports differently for different computer servers, perhaps: 1) normal (w/o html, etc) 2) html server only 3) mail only etc Can I do this? How (in very broad strokes, I don't need step by step right now.) I have a 16 port switch that sends the same thing to all; basically I'm trying to decide if to buy the Quad port card and get selective port firewalling. Sincerely /b (HowTos)
