Hello. I have a computer with 2 network cards. The first card connects to a PLC for process network. Its IP is 188.8.131.52 (manually configured static). The second card connects to a mail server. Its IP address is 192.168.0.10 (manually configured, complete with DNS server entries). Problem is, i cannot ping the mail server until I disable the first network card. As soon as I reenable it, I can no longer ping the mail server. Its as if the computer does not know which card to navigate to. Is there a way to set this up to work better? Some sort of routing setup I can do? Thanx in advance
The IP address is correct. The computer has 2 cards. This card connects to the Canfor network for VPN access for remote programming and sending out alarm messages thru their email server. The second card connects directly to the PLC. This computer runs a touchscreen for operating a plant. 2 cards are required to "seperate" the 2 networks. (ie: we cant put the PLC directly on their corporate network for security reasons).
