Can I have 3 NICS in a Linux (fedora 12) box?

By rschroe ·
I have 2 ISP connections and want to create a failover. Can I connect the 2 ISP modems to two different NIC cards and then connect the switch to a third card. (The linux box would be the DHCP server). This is an asterisk phone system

Since Cent-OS is an RH derivative, the how-to should help you along:

The Shoreline Firewall, more commonly known as "Shorewall", is a Netfilter (iptables) based firewall that can be used on a dedicated firewall system, a multi-function gateway/ router/server or on a standalone GNU/Linux system.
