Hi, I am in Niamey Niger at an American School. I am trying to configure a Mac Pro with Mac Server X.5 to act as the network server, file server, and that is just the start ... it is a new Mac Pro 8-core with 8GB RAM and 4-1TB hard drives.

I am trying to replace a linux box that is providing a static IP network. I can connect the Mac to the network. I can replace the Linux box and connect en0 (ethernet port 1) to the gateway. But when I connect en1 (Ethernet port 2) to ANYTHING I lose my connection with the outside world. I cannot even ping the gateway. I have turned off the firewall for testing purposes.

Do I require a network card in the PCIe 2.0 slot? Or am I overlooking something?
QUOTE Thanks

NOTE: Moved to more appropriate forum.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
