multiple NIC / same subnet - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi Kernel : 2.4.19 I have 2 NICs on same subnet with IP 192.168.0.76(eth0) and 192.168.0.72(eth1). I initiated a data transfer from another machine to a server running on the above machine.

    Default multiple NIC / same subnet

    Hi
    Kernel : 2.4.19

    I have 2 NICs on same subnet with IP 192.168.0.76(eth0) and
    192.168.0.72(eth1).

    I initiated a data transfer from another machine to a server running
    on the above machine. I gave the server IP as 192.168.0.72 on the
    client side. During the transfer if i unplug eth0,
    - the data transfer is hanging
    - iam unable to reach the server machine even thru eth1 which is
    connected
    - iam not able to reach any machine on 192.168.0.0 network from the
    server machine

    I understand this is bcos the route to 192.168.0.0 is using the device
    eth0 which is the first entry in the routing table. is there anyway to
    avoid this , so that linux will automatically failover to the second
    route?

    thanks

    You have a good reason for this?
