Other than "don't do it that way", you mean? <grin>
Having two different interfaces with the same 'network' configuration,
Where either address -cannot- reach *every* host on that 'network'
Assign em1 192.168.1.1/24
Assign em2 188.8.131.52/24
Assign System1 192.168.1.2/24
Assign System2 192.168.2.2/24
System1; default route 192.168.1.1
System2; default route 192.168.2.1
Server: default route 184.108.40.206
(should have auto routes for 220.127.116.11/24 and 18.104.22.168/24)
If you _really_ want everything on the same internal network, the easiest
way is to put in an ethernet hub/switch, and connect everything to that
hub/switch -- only 1 interface per device.
