Dual ethernet connection (Different Subnet)


Recommended Posts



Did not want to jump the other post going on Dual ethernet connection as that seems to be about bonding which is not what i need.


I am sure i have asked this but cant find the post if i did.




I have 1 Nic in my unRaid connected direct in to my switch. What i would like to do is add another two Nics to unRaid and for the two Nics to be on the same subnet. For example


Nic 1 -


Nic 2 -


Nic 3 -


Nic 2 & 3 would then go to different VMHosts and would be used to talk back to unRaid for NFS traffic only. I am running Beta 13. How could i configure unRaid to see these two extra Nics?


Thanks in advance

I have this done on my machine and its easy to do.

Step 1:

In your config set your primary IP address with a gateway. (This is where your machine will do any internet access related things.)


Step 2:

In your go script (/boot/config/go) add a line for each new nic

ifconfig eth1 192.168.1.X netmask up
ifconfig eth2 192.168.1.X netmask up


eth0 has already been setup in step 1 so no need to worry about it.


Reboot your array or run the commands manually to bring them up.
