I have a box thats running FC6 64 bit, w/ two network cards. So far, i dont have use for the second nic so its disabled. However, i am running into a problem. The NIC thats currently enable and working is generating huge amounts of traffict. (At least thats what i think) I can tell this because I can see the LED in my network switch going crazy. Also, my whole network will go down, and i cannot connect to the internet nor i cannot connect to my network shares. Now, my network is made of a windows 2003 box running file sharing, and just a test ad, and dns. Nothing major since its a home server just for testing purposes.
My Fedora Box is just used as my daily desktop. I had to disable NIC1 and enable NIC2 to get back my network. I wonder if there is something wrong w/ my NIC1 or is there some kind of malicious activity going on in my box???
