    Help: FreeBSD Webserver with Two NICs

    Hello there....

    I think you might help me....

    I want to run a webserver which will be having a good traffic.

    At present, I have a 100/10 Mbps internet connection (fiber-optics) but with this connection I cannot get Fixed IP for the webserver.

    To get the Fixed-IP, I am getting a 24/1 Mbps internet line through Telephone line. But I am just in doubt that my webserver might not be able to server the documents with good serving speed due to 1 Mbps upstream...

    So, I came to an idea that if I use two NICs, one NIC bounded to 100/10 Mbps to serve the pages and one which would be bound with 24/1 Mbps connection with Fixed-IP to litsen the requests....

    my Question is that is it possible and if so, how?

    I am planning to install FreeBSD as a OS.

    Thanks.... VJ

    I don't think that there is a way to do what you are asking. You will need a static IP.
