I hope everyone is well.

I don't see how I can connect the two networks together.  I have two
different floors in the Church.  Each floor has thin clients that all
connect into a single switch.  An uplink from each floor goes to the
server room. So in the server room in the basement I've got a cable
from the 2nd floor switch and a cable from the 1st floor switch.
Currently I have both those cables going into another switch and then
a cable from the LTSP server to that switch.  I was hoping to
eliminate that switch (and it's potential bottle-neck) by plugging the
cable from the 2nd floor into one NIC and the the 1st floor into the
other NIC.

Is that do-able?

Thank you!
