I have a a Centos PC with 2 IP addresses. One of them is because of a back to back connection with another PC, so both run on different subnets. The eth0 has the 192.xx.xx.xxx address and eth2 has 172.xx.xx.xxx on this PC.
Since 192.xx.xx.xxx is a back to back connection it doesn't have internet capability, but 172.xx.xx.xxx does. The default is set to 192.xx.xx.xxx, so whenever I do a
yum update or anything it goes through 192.xx.xx.xxx, it is not able to perform the update or I am not even able to ping www.google.com.
Is there a way I can set the default IP address for eth2 to, e.g., 172.xx.xx.xxx?
I have already tried going to the /etc/sysconfig/network and setting the gateway to 172.x.y.z, but it didnt work .
