[plug] using several ethernet cards problem...

Hi everybody!

I must be using the wrong keywords searching on the internet for the problem I 
have because nothing related comes up:

I setup a Debian Etch repository in a Debian Etch machine with apt-mirror 
("the server") .

I have in this server one integrated ethernet card, plus 3 other ethernet 
cards, all of them working perfectly.

I have also in that server a dhcp server.

If I connect a computer to any of the ethernet cards in the server, all are 
able to get an IP through the dhcp server, but only those connected to the 
integrated card are able to connect to the apache server that give access to 
the files of the Debian repository in my server.

From the server I can ping any connected machine but for the added network 
cards I have to specify which card to use for ping to get an answer.

I really don't know where to start to find a way that all the network cards 
behave as the integrated one in regards to serve http requests.

Weird, isn't it?

Thank you for any suggestion!

Marcos Carot Collins.
