This is similar to this question. However I'm looking for an answer from a perspective of worst case scenario, and risks involved. I'm not interested in LACP or cnahhel bonding.
I have a computer with two network interfaces (
eth0 is the interface which gets it IP via DHCP. It is used for accessing the internet.
eth1 is the interface with a fixed IP that is used to connect with some arbitrary network devices. It is never physically on the same subnet as
The worst case scenario is that
eth0 gets the same IP via DHCP as
From my current perspective, this wouldn't turn to be anything different than if they were on a different sub nets. Example:
The reason why i believe that is because in both cases the interface has to be explicitly specified and the interface is the unique identifier separating the two addresses. The perspective being observed here is from the point of the computer with two interfaces.
- Is this true, or would some sort conflicts occur?
- Is there a unique fixed IP that can be set on
eth1so that a conflict never occurs?
