What's it called when you have multiple network adapters and use them with different software
I am looking to setup a new in-home server using an old laptop.
It will have an external USB drive, which will be a NAS. I will also have a Plex server and the usual LAMP.
Due to the slow 100Mbps ethernet adapter, I want to add a Gigabit "Ethernet to USB adapter". I want to setup the Plex server to use the built in ethernet port, and the NAS and Webserver to use the Gigabit ethernet to usb adapter. As I should be able to get a few more MBs file transfer out of the USB port.
I can't see why this wouldn't be possible. What do you call it when you use more than one ethernet adapter and use different ones from different software?
