Use different IP network numbers for each ethernet interface. e.g.
FCC1 - eth0 - 192.168.1.x
FCC2 - eth1 - 192.168.2.x
FCC3 - eth2 - 192.168.3.x
(assuming a netmask of 255.255.255.0). If they all have the same IP *network*
number (i.e. the number is the same after applying the netmask), then Linux
will only use one of them. In other words, you can only have one route for
By the way, if you want Linux to forward packets between the interfaces, then
ensure you enable forwarding (echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward).
Also, you could by-pass all this IP stuff and do things at the ethernet level
(using a RAW socket?). Cheers!
