I have a workstation with the two ethernet ports (eth0, eth1), the problem is that i cannot run with both ports up and running. I can run with either one of them, but not both. auto lo iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address netmask gateway dns-nameservers

auto eth1 iface eth1 inet static address netmask gateway dns-nameservers
