Well - I suppose you could just plug the cable in Eth0 into Eth1 and vice

I assume that this is because you have a firewall script or something that
assumes that eth1 is trusted and eth0 is teh net?

Or something similar at least

Subject: [K12OSN] switching eth0 and eth1


The machine I'm exploring K12LTSP on is used for dual booting a number
of Linux distros.  All of them use eth0 to access the internet thru the
hub and on to the gateway/firewall machine.  I added a second NIC (eth1)
to the machine for K12LTSP to connect an old Mac client via a crossover
cable. My question is:  what do I have to do with the K12LTSP
configuration to switch the roles of eth0 and eth1, so that eth0 goes to
the outside world and eth1 connects to the K12LTSP clients?
