Re: Single NIC multiple configurations



The machine is shutdown between work and home.  My commute on a train is
an hour and then I drive home from there.

It appears that the multiple interfaces works.  I used
system-config-network and created a copy of the eth0 and nicknamed each
eth0_work and eth0_home respectively and configured them as follows.  At
work I use dhcp.  At home I use a static IP.  I have to try this at home
later, but will post my results.

Thank you for the help so far!
