CentOS 5 Networking :: DNS Configuration - Local Network And Internet Names
Jan 28, 2009
We are in the process for Integration Network with our Government Network.
Let say that our network are 192.168.0.0/24
And the Government network are 10.0.0.0/8
I want to know if the local network can resolve the internet names in Government Network. I am using Bind for DNS.
I have three Debian systems running, along with several XP laptops, PS3 and two DirecTV systems. I use two of the three Debian systems as media servers, and the third is an older system mostly for playing around with. My home network is running fine with the following nuisance. The two newer Debian (Lenny) systems are <barney> and <mitzi>, the older is named <oscar>, running Debian Sarge 3.1. From either locally or remote login to <barney> and <mitzi> I can ssh into either of the other two systems, however when logged into <oscar> I cannot ssh by name to either of the other systems. e.g. ssh: mitzi: Temporary failure in name resolution..However, from <oscar> I can ping outside my network (e.g. ping www.google.com) with no problems.I can also ssh to the other systems via IP address, just not by name.
I've compared the /etc/ssh/ssh_config, /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/ssh/sshd_config and other files between the two systems and not seeing anything peculiar. arp, route, etc., don't show different behavior between the systems either.
I'll apologize in advance for I'm sure this has been covered already, but I'm not sure of the search terms to even use to begin solving this problem. I don't know what I don't know.
I have three computers on my home network and want to reach them by their name instead of IP address since their ip is dynamically assigned. I'm using a Linksys WRT54GL router and have noticed that there exists a "DHCP Clients Table" in the router that seems to hold all the necessary information - host names and ip addresses.
How can I get my computers to use that as the lookup table to resolve the host names? And is this even an optimal way of being able to resolve local names?
I have a mac and an openSUSE box connected wirelessly to a router. From my mac, if I ping the Linux machine by both ip address and hostname "elmo.local", I get a response. If I ping my mac from the Linux machine using its ip address, I get a response. However, if I ping the mac from the Linux box using its name "kermit.local" - nothing!
This means in order to share files between them via the network, I have to use the ip address rather than name, but I'd rather not. When I had Ubuntu installed instead of openSUSE this all worked fine out of the box, so I'm assuming it's a problem with the setup of openSUSE rather than the router or the mac.
I have two networks. One of them is wired, the other is wireless. The wired has an internet connection and a few other computers connected to it. The wireless network has a few hosts connected to it too, but it has no internet connection. What I've been trying, fruitlessly, to do, is make all connections that are bound to the internet, or my wired network, be routed that way, and all the connections to the hosts of the wireless network go that way.
Here's the setup..
192.168.1.0/24 Gateway = 192.168.1.1
Route internet through here
192.168.2.0/24 Gateway = 192.168.2.1
If my computer sends a packet to the internet, it should be routed through 192.168.1.1 If I send a packet to one of the local hosts of the wireless network, it should be routed through 192.168.2.1. Here's the routing table I've set up(This is one of many configurations I've tried)
$ ip route show 192.168.2.1 dev wlan0 scope link 192.168.2.0/24 via 192.168.2.1 dev wlan0 src 192.168.2.4
With this, and everything else, I get destination host unreachable when pinging. The strange thing is that, if I unplug my eth cable, reboot and connect to the wireless network, everything is fine and I can access the router and the others. I'm trying to improve my networking skills, as I've had this of setting up a small linux box as a router for quite some time, for the fun of it, but I need to get routing under control before I go ruin my network.
I Have Ubuntu 9.10 Server installed and for some reason after updating our server with the ubuntu update manager, we can no longer connect to the network via remote desktop, let alone not even able to ping. We are actually able to connect to the internet itself just fine so I dont understand why this isn't working
In short: browsing the internet with domain names does not work. The long version: I've configured my network with DHCP and ifup. Ping works on my internal net and with servers in the internet. Dig work's too! I get the right IP to the requested domain. When i try to access the internet using firefox or even wget i get an DNS error. For example wget is showing the following error: Resolving heise.de... failed: Name or service not known. wget: unable to resolve host address 'heise.de'
Again dig show me the right IP and if i add the entry to /etc/hosts it work's too! I've even tried it with manually setup of ip address, nameserver and default gateway but with the same result. Switching off the firewall has no effect on this problem, too.
dammit... all that typing and I hit the wrong "submit" button. *sigh*
Ok, I have a couple of SMTP servers for our infrastructure. They are running Postfix. I have them configured so that specific email addresses such as email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org all go to a new support server that I am building with osTicket. Lets call that server SUPP1.
SUPP1 runs sendmail from the default install of CentOS 5 i386. At this point everything runs great. New emails get added into the osTicket system via a pipe in sendmail. Here's where the problem comes in. In order to accept mail, sendmail has to have the domain listed in local-host-names and the addresses in virtusertable. That works just dandy. But in doing so, sendmail believes it is the destination SMTP server for "mydomain.com". That means that I can't send mail from that server back into my normal SMTP servers. So things like the LogWatch, cron jobs, etc can't send notifications. Is there a way to work around that? For sendmail to ignore local-host-names for outbound email or something?
I dual boot windows xp and ubuntu 10.04 LTS and the wireless card works perfectly fine in xp so I know its not a hardware/network issue. In ubuntu, it detects wireless networks, will connect to network and work for about 20 seconds.
and it continues on after this alternating between a normal 20ms and high ping over 200ms. The connection refuses to load anything off the internet/local network.
I am currently working on a project related to packet sniffing which has been implemented using the concept of raw sockets. I am using C language.I am able to decode the following details from the packets received from a local network,like:
source and Destination Mac Address source and Destination IP Address source and Destination port no
But I am having trouble in decoding the domain name when an user in the local network is logging onto internet.For eg. if a user in the local network is trying to log on to web using his browser say if he has logged on to url then from the packet I need to get the following details
source Mac Address from which user had logged on source IP Address from which user had logged on domain name
I'm setting up my server under CentOS 5.5 (text mode) and I installed cherokee server but I couldn't reach it with the ip given by ifconfig. So I figured it might be an problem within cherokee. I also wanted to install webmin so I did that to see if I could reach that one. But also the webmin server is not reachable (I know the port number should be behind the ip ). So if I look up ifconfig I see the server has got an local ip (192.168.1.42) but I can't reach it from another computer in the same local network.
I recently installed bind9 on mandriva 2008.1, after having done the necessary configuration.. I still can't find my domain I configured cant ping on other machines on the LAN but can actually ping on any other website on the internet even though name server is configured to point to local machine..... I dont understand what I'm doing wrong.
I want to use single label host names on my local LAN, without using any domain (at least no registered one). My machines should be named in a fashion similar to 'myserver', 'mydesktop' etc. so that i from a browser on any LAN machine may write 'http://myserver', and get the webserver on 'myserver' (so NO domain part, e.g. myserver.domain).
Do i need to create a DNS zone for each host or is there a way to put all host in a single zone, if so; which? Would such a name be considered a root domain?
I installed and tested both Windows server 2003 and Red Hat 9.0 with vmware workstation7. After installing 2003 can access internet but Red Hat can't. I want to test squid proxy server, send mail server, webserver etc. So, I would like to know how to setup WMware's network configuration for Red hat can access internet.
Below link is the configuration of VMware network setup both Server 2003 and Red Hat.
Here is Red Hat Configuration: http://i64.servimg.com/u/f64/11/74/16/17/linux10.jpg

I am using wireless connection to access internet.
I have an internal domain (dev.lan) for which my Ubuntu server is authoritative. We have a number of subdomains under that domain (test.dev.lan, svn.dev.lan, etc.). The server also acts as the primary DNS server for my office. It was originally set up under Ubuntu 8 and worked great.
However, ever since we upgraded to Ubuntu 10, our Windows clients periodically lose the ability to resolve domains on the dev.lan domain. Internal IP addresses can still be pinged from the Windows machines so it does not appear to be a network-connectivity issue. External domain names continue to resolve without any problems. The only workaround is to restart networking on the Windows clients. It's frustrating because it happens several times a day.
I'm a Linux n00b (very fluent in Windows, though ) that is attempting to set up a (currently) 3-computer cluster. My server node is a Pentium 4, and my client nodes are a Pentium 4 and a Pentium 3 (whatever I have lying around ) I chose to use OSCAR for my clustering interface and CentOS 5 for my server node OS. Yay. I made it through the installation prerequisites, but when it came to configure the NIC, I got stuck.
I opened the /etc/hosts file, tinkered with it, but something inevitably got screwed up. I can still use the Internet, but it won't let me install OSCAR. Running a system-sanity check returns:
All I need to know is what the /etc/hosts file should look like for a CentOS 5.4 installation with 1 NIC that is not connected to a domain (only a LAN). It is connected to a router which in turn is connected to my home network (I don't know what to do about that). The hostname should be surgeonfishr and the IP address should be 192.168.0.150.
I know this question is probably really stupid, but I've logged a total of about 10 hours time on Linux...ever. (And 35000 hours on Windows.)
I want to create a small network of 3-5 computers. I want to have one computer as my server and have services like NFS, DHCP, NTP, etc. I want to connect it to 2-4 other clients that have the bare minimal installation of linux on them. I would like 1 client computer to have a static ip address and I would like another to receive a dynamic ip address from the server. How would I go about doing all of this without the assistance of GUI's? I want to be able to do all this with the ks.cfg and network config files.
I'd like a way to see all of the devices on my local network and what their local IP address is. I recall that I used wireshark to troubleshoot a similar problem a while back, but it doesn't seem to have a way to see all of the devices- only the traffic. (I'd like to do this without having to physically interface with my router if possible, and I am in an encrypted network if that matters)
I have installed a web server on my local network. Everything is well configured and web pages are shown correctly from Internet (outside the local network) using the domain or the public IP.The issue is if I try to see that web pages (using the domain or the public IP) from inside the local network. In that case the router config page (192.168.1.1) is shown instead of the web pages.From inside the local network I'm only able to see the web pages using the internal IP address (192.168.1.XX).
I have installed centos 5.5 / 64. Configured network but - no internet. On my router I see my pc and IP. On centos, Firewall and selinux are disabled. I try to disable network and activate network manager and reverse but no luck internet is not working. Try to ping my router 192.168.5.1
I am trying to set up a wireless 'test' box to use on a private club (11,000 acres). The initial tests won't need anything fancy, it will just be checking the visibility of a hotspot from a high-point in the middle of the property. But if it proves to have good visibility, later tests will be (hopefully) promoted by the club and made aware to members. I would like to set up a captive portal to redirect them to a comments page where they can post a quick message if they were able to connect ....
Most of the examples I see online of captive portal are based on having an internet connection and/or a NAT scheme set up. I just need a hotspot and a single web-page for these promotional tests. If possible, I would like to trigger any devices capable to suggest or otherwise open a browser to go to the promotional landing page ...
Also, one more quick question, this is to eventually be an 'open' internet for this test - most of the wpa set-up examples show using a passkey. Is making an open wifi as simple as not including the passkey or is there something else I would need to be doing?
I have a webserver to host some system application to the public. the server have two network interface. I set eth0 with wan IP and eth1 with internal LAN IP.the reason for the internal ip on eth1 is to enable LAN pc directly access to the webserver application..is this configuration is ok. sometimes the server link down and i have to restart network to get it back to normal again.. Is there any additional configuration in order to make the network stable.
Two nights ago I decided to switch from testing to unstable. Since then I am able to connect to the internet, but not to anything on my local network. I am unable to ping this computer from another one on the network. This computer is connected through wireless. I thought that something might have changed with iptables that was blockinghe localnetwork. I tried to "flush the iptables settings with "iptables -F". Since that didn't work I uninstalled iptables (which didn't work and I reinstalled iptables). In my browser I tried to connect to my router and that doesn't work either.I connect to this computer daily through ssh and connect to a NAS. Without ssh and my NAS I feel kinda lost
I've got an Ubuntu server hosting our websites and other various things here in our own home. We recently switched to a router that doesn't support loopback (abomination), so I've set up hosts files on our computers so we can access our own sites when on our home LAN.
However, we often take our laptops as we travel about, and I'm guessing due to the hosts files when we try to access our sites, it'll look on whatever local network we're connected to for our server, which won't work, obviously.
Is there a way to set up something like a hosts file that'll only try to look up the local IP of the server when we're on a specific network (our home one), or have one that tries to look for the local IP first, then proceeds to try and resolve the domain name and use the external IP if the local IP doesn't work?
I'm trying to set up a *simple* MTA in my local network. The only thing it should be able to do is send system / daemon mails to admin@mylocaldomain. but at the moment I'm pretty much overwhelmed by everything i *should* know in order to set up this MTA
I configured exim to be in "internet"-mode. now i have a variety of errors I can choose from (and a variety of solutions that i don't like ).. my test is always an email from test01.mylocaldomain:
echo "Hello World" | mail -s Testmail admin@mylocaldomain
- after running the config, i get the error: admin@mylocaldomain: all relevant MX records point to non-existent hosts --> google says, edit and udpate update-exim4.conf.conf --> dc_relay_domains='mylocaldomain' --> but this exim installation should not be a relay at all. it should only be able to SEND (to this domain), not deliver it. or do i get something wrong?
- after i added dc_relay_domains='mylocaldomain', i get --> SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<admin@mylocaldomain>: host mail.mylocaldomain [192.168.x.x]: 550 5.1.1 <root@mylocaldomain>: Sender address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table --> but i don't want to create an account on the mailserver for the SENDER...
- ...so i thought, i'd config exim with the domain "test01.mylocaldomain" (including the server name), so that the sender is clearly from another domain than the mail server handles (e.g. email@example.com).. but then i get this --> SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<admin@mylocaldomain>: host mail.mylocaldomain [192.168.x.x]: 450 4.1.8 <firstname.lastname@example.org>: Sender address rejected: Domain not found
I really just wanna send mails in my local network.
I have a new Debian 5.04/ppc install on a G5 tower and it's not able to browse the local network. The clean install could see the network, then I installed the Samba server, and it hasn't worked since. Samba server never really worked, and I'm guessing I messed something up. I've reinstalled network-manager, and removed / reinstalled samba.
I have a small home network (6 machines) running wired and/or wireless, pc/mac and linux.This machine can PING other machines by name and IP address.This machine can PING itself by name and IP address Other machines can PING this machine by IP address only, not by name.Nautilus network browser only shows the "Windows Network" icon, which, when clicked, shows an empty window.I've got networking up fine on all my other machines but this one is stumping me.
At home I have two computers running linux connected to the same router. I would like to be able to connect them so that I can move files between them and execute simple commands. What is the most simple way to access a prompt on the other computer or to mount a partition currently used by the other computer?Using the www it is possible to connect two computers using ssh, but it should be easier to do this over the LAN, right? I have been googling a lot but not found anything.
