A look at the sticky topic in this very forum would've shown you that. :P


Also, having a title of a post that says something more than "newbe needs help, M,kay" would get you more help faster. I typically scan for topics I know something about and usually ignore vague post titles such as this one, because inside is usually a vague question about vague error messages. This time I was just bored and got curious.

I've just put a third NIC in my Linux box (MDK 10.1 Official) without any issues whatsoever - except that for some reason it decided to name the third NIC eth1 instead of eth2 as expected. I suspect this has something to do with eth0/1 using the same driver module.


As for setting up the ICS - I followed Streeters manual setup the same as I did when I had 10.0 community installe but this time it didn't work. So I used the wizards - and this time they worked.


Except for Samba - which did work in 10.0
