I'm not sure how to add a second IP to the server, nor am I sure if doing so
would work. My understanding of LAN networking is that you have your LAN IP
which is used to give other network clients access to that machine. I'm not
sure how having 2 LAN IP's would affect this. Would my router have to issue
2 IP's to my linux machine? How does this work?
Also, the port forwarding idea is great and I"m going to do that for now. I
can't believe I didn't think of this earlier! Thanks a lot!
