And the problem I'm solving now is that we have two IP nets for one
physical cable for now ( waiting for Routers to come ;)
I had to make ifconfig alias on server, and it results that any transfer
between computers on the same cable but different IP's occurs through
that aliased interface. That seems quite stupid, but could you offer any
other solution ( except, of course, aliasing all interfaces on all
computers :) ) ?
Question is that one network is Freenet, and the other - UN office in
Ukraine. I would certainly divide it into separate phys zones, but for
now its the solutions. BTW all hosts on Freenet are connected via SLIP.
Thanx a lot
