    Hi

    I am working with Unix guy and he asks me if it is possible to put two
    ports two gether. Since there are two NICs in Unix and he can assign
    one IP to two NICs and hook them up to switch. So connection will
    increase up to twice.
    I know in Cisco I can implement channel ports between cisco switches
    but I am not sure between cisco switch and computer.
    Does anyone know if it will work?

    Thanks

    The Cisco can use EtherChannel, FastEtherChannel, or GigaEtherChannel
    (depending on age and configuration). These are all Cisco but are supported
    by many NICs and even other manufacturers (3Com). So the short answer is
    DEPENDS. How is he binding the ports together? If he is using one of these
    3, the answer is yes, otherwise probably no (but there are always other
    options).
