While answering this question I found something I didn't know and couldn't find an answer for.
In the context of the above question if a computer / server has 2 LAN ports built in on the motherboard (Or 2 seperate Network Cards) should these 2 cards have the same IP address e.g 10.0.0.1 or should they both have different addresses e.g
Port 1 10.0.0.1
Port 2 10.0.0.2 Hypothesising that the user wants just to connect 2 other computers to the servers 2 LAN ports using crossover cable.
I would think they had to have different 2 seperate IP addresses but was wondering what that would mean if using DNS. Would the server have 2 seperate records in DNS. Could it be contacted by either? Which would take precedence?
Any answers on this topic or further information would be greatly appreciated.
