Accessing a computer from two separate ethernet ports
on Aug 1, 2011 at 10:45:21 am

I have a G5 with two ethernet ports, built in and pci card. I would like to access this computer from two different computers, one connected to each port. I am having problems getting more than one computer to connect to the G5 at a time. I'm not clear on how to set up each port so they can both be accessed.
I know I could just use a switch to do this, but I would like to use what I already have around.
All the computers are running os 10.5.8. I'm not doing any heavy lifting with this. The G5 is going to be a place to store music and for backups.
Thanks for any help.

Thanks,

You probably have them on the same subnet. That won't work. It screws up the routing table.

That's what I thought. Here is what I have set up:
G5
Internal Ethernet ip: 192.168.1.115 subnetmask:0255.255.255.0

Ethernet Card ip: 192.168.2.115 subnetmask:0255.255.255.0

Only one edit station can connect to the G5. What I'm seeing is that afp will only connect to the ethernet port that is at the top of the list of connectons in the Network panel.
Stumped.

the port at the top has the default route. You can't connect via the finder and the "Shared" section where you see the server show up. That will use bonjour to find the server. You have to hit cmd-K and connect to server using the correct IP address.

That's the way I've been trying to get connected. Second computer just doesn't want to connect.
