We have a device that should be connected to a motherboard with two NIC cards. We want to be able to let the device run properly by plugging it to any of the NIC cards that we have on the motherboard.
So let say for example that our external device has IP 220.127.116.11
And our motherboard has two NIC cards are as follows:
en0 IP is 18.104.22.168
en1 IP is 22.214.171.124
also en1 has 126.96.36.199 as an alias also
is it possible to run the system in this situation which means;
1- When external device is connected to en0 , then it will use en0 to communicate with the device.
2- When external device is connected to en1 , then it will use the alias to connect to the device.
My concern is will that cause an IP conflict when connecting the external device to either port.
And if somebody has an idea of how to accomplish this, please reply.
Thanks for all in Advance
