All ip-activitiy, dns, ssh etc. on the interface (ip-address) that is
mounted. So whenever I test I log in to the server using the other
ip-address and whenever it stops responding to ping or my screen
session stops I reload the interfaces and the traffic resumes.
When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom,
