CentOS 5 Hardware :: NIC Dropping Packets - Zero On Errors

Aug 2, 2009

I have just installed a fresh copy of CentOS 5.3 and from the get-go, the NIC started dropping packets like crazy. I even closed the port on the switch,. moved the cable to a different port,. All yield the same "dropping packets" behavior. Zero on the errors, just dropping packets. Should I stick a diff nic instead?

CentOS 5 Networking :: NIC Drops Packets / But Reports No Errors

Jul 24, 2009

I've got an odd one, running the CentOS 5.3 kernel, I'm experiencing lost packets on one of the two NICs when tested with ping. In this particular case, it's the internal NIC that causes the problem, pings from the CentOS machine to the public network over the external NIC never loses packets.(internet)<-->CentOS<--> (LAN) <--> desktop

- CentOS can ping the internet with no packet loss
- CentOS loses packets when pinging the desktop(s)
- Desktops lose packets when pinging the CentOS box
- Taking the LAN switch out of the equation still results in lost packets
- When the LAN NIC on the CentOS box "acts up", all desktops start losing packets

I've swapped out the NIC a few times for different makes/models, and I'm still getting lost packets to/from the internal network. So, I'm thinking that there's something squirrely going on higher up in the network stack. But evidently, not enough to log anything to the console or into the log files.At the moment, I'm leaning towards it being an issue with the nForce 750a SLI chipset. But it's odd that it only affects the LAN card and not the WAN card. I've even swapped the positions of the two NICs, and the problem persists on the LAN card.The other possibility is that iptables is eating packets silently, but in a random fashion.

Ubuntu Security :: Odd Port Scanning Results - 646 - Dropping Packets

Jun 6, 2010

I was testing the security of my Ubuntu 10.04 64bit install by running a port scan from [URL] and I came upon some odd results. It appears that basically all my ports are closed, but only Port 646 is dropping packets silently. Furthermore, Port 80 is open.

Ubuntu Servers :: Dropping Network Connection And Other Errors

Sep 11, 2010

I set up the web/backup server for our department and I'm having some major issues. Firstly, the server seems to be dropping the network connection periodically. I checked all of the logs and it appeared to be an IP6 issue as the only message that seemed to correlate with it was "eth0: no IPv6 routers present" in syslog. I added "ipv6.disable=1" to my boot options in menu.lst and this seemed to take care of the problem. However, I woke up this morning and the server was back down.

This didn't seem to take care of the problem. It seems to occur when my automatic backup scripts go through. I have several BASH backup scripts that use rysnc over SSH to backup several computers to the server and the server to my desktop at home. I was able to trigger the problem a couple of times running the backup script this morning. Now, I'm getting the following error when running the script, instead of losing the network connection:

Sep 11 10:22:40 chemistry kernel: [ 396.892699] BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000118

Sep 11 10:22:40 chemistry kernel: [ 396.892750] CPU 1 .....

I tried booting with a previous kernel to see if that was the problem and I'm still getting this error. I've searched through all of the logs that I could think of to try to track down any software based problems and I just don't see anything. In the past, whenever I've run into such serious with a Linux box that popped up out of nowhere, it's always been a hardware failure. I've currently disabled all of the backup scripts and I'm going to see if it lasts through the weekend.

Ubuntu Networking :: WiFi Dropping And Dropping Speed

Feb 25, 2010

As soon as i'm starting to copy a large file enough file (>700Mb) to my ubuntu box (connected to an Asus router via wifi) from a Windows 7 client (connected to router via ethernet cable) i get a dramatic drop in speed. upload starts at 1,0Mb/sec with a ping to ubuntu box at <1ms, and in 2 minutes it drops to 200kb/sec with a ping of over 1000ms! The ping increases with every second in a linear progression.

To exlude router as a possible problem copying to a windows 7 notebook connected to router via wifi results in an average of 2,7Mb/sec with an average ping of 150ms.

MB Model: Asus P5B Deluxe wifi
OS: Ubuntu Server 9.10 + desktop installed
Wifi configured via GUI

Networking :: Firewall - Allow Packets Coming From Internet After Authenticating And To By Pass Packets Generated From Internal LAN?

Feb 8, 2010

i have a linux server runnig oracle applications. i need to access this server from putty using ssh through internet. i did by registering my static ip with the dnydns.org and i am able to connect to the server. but now there is no security to authenticate any user as any one knowing the password can login to it.

i thought of configuring the firewall of linux server but the client ip`s are not static and they change continiously. so thought of keeping one more pc between the server and the router which will do the work of authenticating. but i am confuse as how to configure it to allow the packets coming from the internet after authenticating and to by pass the packets generated from internal LAN?

CentOS 5 Networking :: E1000e Driver And 80003ES2LAN Nic Dropping Connections?

Apr 7, 2009

After doing a clean base install of CentOS 5.3 on a test server, I started having problems with network disconnects. While SSH into the box, I would be intermittently disconnected from the SSH session. At first I thought it was my workstation, but after running ping tests from multiple machines on the network to the test box, it became apparent that the test box was dropping packets. When I lose my SSH connection, the pings also start timing out, for a few seconds, then start again. I increased the console logging and I can see when the ethernet port goes up and down when I physically disconnect the cable, but it does not go down or lose link when the disconnects occur. I changed the NIC ports being used and had the same result. I tried with a different switch with same result. I reinstalled CentOS 5.2 and the problem went away.

Upon further investigation, I found that CentOS 5.2 is using the e1000 driver for my NICs and CentOS 5.3 is using the e1000e driver. I resinstalled CentOS 5.3, and tried using the e1000 driver instead of the e1000e but it no longer detects my NIC's... apparently they moved the support from e1000 to e1000e. I have spent the last 3 days googleing for info on this problem and have not found a solution. Any recommendations? Should I submit a bug report?

CentOS 5 :: 5.3 Always Generates Bad Checksum TCP/UDP Packets?

Apr 9, 2009

I use wireshark (ethereal) to moniter the traffic passing through the NIC. I find that system always sends "bad checksum" TCP/UDP packets. In CentOS 5.2 this is seldom. Does your system (5.3) send "bad checksum" TCP/UDP packet ?

I have a hardware device with two ethernet ports, eth0 and eth1 running Centos 5. Basically my goal is to forward packets from eth0->eth1 and eth1->eth0 as well as get a copy of these packets for analysis. If I set IP routing to do the forwarding then I won't get a copy of the packets for analysis.

CentOS 5 :: Hdb: Timeout Errors After Power Off Only

May 4, 2010

The problems I was having earlier: [URL]seemed to be solved.

I was not getting any error messages after restart. I should have powered down fully, but did not think that it would make a difference. :(

The same issue is again occurring, but after shutdown ONLY and only on the first boot. After the first boot, a system restart will not cause any error messages. (I have rebooted at least ten or twenty times to make sure)

But after a system shutdown, the first boot hangs up and I get the

"Red Hat nash version starting hdb: timeout waiting for DMA hdb: drive not ready for command"

errors five or six times before each boot. Also the system boots very slowly the first time.

I used the getinfo.sh all command and posted the info to the suggested site here: [URL]

Is it possible this could be a hardware issue? This is an old salvaged HDD. Ive changed everything I c an think of in the BIOS with no results.

I have used the hdparm -d /dev/hdb command and verified that dma is not being used on initial boot or after a shutoff but IS being used after a reboot...

here are the HDD settings
multcount = 16 (on)
IO_support = 0 (default 16-bit)
unmaskirq = 0 (off)

CentOS 5 :: Errors / Warnings At Boot?

Sep 14, 2010

I've made a CentOS 5 x86_64 setup last year, around november/december.This system is supposed to operate as a home router/gateway, firewall, nas, small intranet/extranet server and media center.I've previously built a system using older parts (Pentium III 866MHz), and had on it CentOS 5 x86.It successfully served the same purpose (except nas and media center) for quite some time, about 1-2years, until i felt i needed better hardware (more memory, speed and disk space mainly) and 64-bit support.

Part of this intended setup isn't finished (router/gateway, firewall, media center), partially because i'm still lacking a good 1000mbps switch and a supported wireless n 3-antenna card in AP/server mode.In the previous setup, i had router/gateway, firewall and small intranet/extranet server working, with a crappy 100mbps switch (the switch is broken now).the new setup has run pretty well, it had been upgraded 2 times, etc...But since it has been installed, even before any updates, upgrades or repo additions, there has been always warnings/errors during kernel boot.I'm listing my specs, configs, versions and logs bellow. all the partitions, RAID and LVM were created during CentOS initial setup.

Case:1x Cooler-Master CM-690 II Advanced (RC-692-KKN2)
PSU:1x Corsair VX450W (CMPSU-450VX)

CentOS 5 :: Eclipse 3.5 Red Hat Edition Errors On 3.2.2 Update?

Aug 1, 2009

I'm running CentOS 5.3 x64 within a 32 bit version of Windows XP via VirtualBox. What I'm trying to do is install Eclipse such that I can code in both C++ and Java. I'm going to need to eventually add the OpenMP library, but that's later on. Right now, I'm just trying to get Eclipse to that point, I have the gcc and jre installed...it's just that Eclipse is not wanting to cooperate.

I did uninstall the open-jdk and install the Java SE 6u14. java version "1.6.0_14" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_14-b08) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.0-b16, mixed mode)

And the gcc... gcc (GCC) 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-44) Copyright (C) 2006 Free Software Foundation, Inc. This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO warranty; not even for MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

I was able to install the Eclipse SDK using yum...

Eclipse Platform
Version: 3.2.0
Build id: M20060921-0945 (CentOS release 5 (Final))

However when I go to update it using Eclipse's update utility to install from the Eclipse Project Updates (in this case, Eclipse 3.2.2 update) I get:

Unable to complete action for feature "Eclipse Platform" due to errors.

5 :: Hdb : Timeout Errors When Loading CentOS / Soluton For This?

May 3, 2010

I am a complete novice when it comes to Linux, but want to learn, and installed CentOS5 on an old P4 Dell I had lying around.
Dell Dimension 8100 BIOS is version A02
Install seemed to go fine, but when I power up I get the following message

Red Hat nash version starting
hdb: timeout waiting for DMA
hdb: drive not ready for command

this happens a few times each, then CentOS finally loads.

If Im understanding this right, DMA is direct memory access.
Is it possible the hard drive, motherboard etc does not support this?
