Thread: Mac Pro Dual ethernet ports
06-06-2009, 06:05 AM #1Mac Pro Dual ethernet ports
I've just got a new Mac Pro (and god it's great!) and I'm wondering if I can make use of both ethernet ports.
Obviously one goes eth0 -> switch -> modem -> internet. But it would be good if eth1 -> switch - > home server.
I store all my docs, movies, music, photos, etc on the server so nearly everything is transferring at some point so I though it would be useful if I could use eth1 for streaming and eth0 for internet.
Is there a way to do this and to set what port to use? I currently have both plugged in but everything is going through the first port (which is what I'd expected).
