For the older (27 series) release you need to set up two copies of the
"beoserv" program, one to serve the "stage 2" on the boot network and
another to serve the run-time information on the operational network.

You can do this by creating second configuration file that just has the
stage 1 boot interface and related info.  Start up the second 'beoserv'
process with the '-c <configfile>' option.
