 Subject:  Multiple NICS on Lan Side

Soekris 4501 with MW 1.3b2.

WAN eth0 with an IP of

LAN eth1 with an IP of	
Works Great.

Shouldn't I be able to add:

opt1 	eth2 in same subnet as the LAN on eth1?

I've tried it and can't get anything to route through it.

I've done the firewall rules for opt1.

I think it should just work.

If I change opt1 to a separate subnet like then it all 
comes right and works.

Does every nic have to be on a separate subnet to work?

I want to be able to add IPs to each nic and have them all on the same 
subnet on the lan side.

Am I trying to do something that can't be done?
