Debian Configuration :: /etc/network/interfaces: Ra0 Or Wlan0?

Mar 30, 2010

I had one of those random system deaths, so reinstalled squeeze (daily netinst image I think...) on my eee 1000, which uses an rt2860 wireless chip. The new install only installed 2.6.32, which I had been avoiding using because of a few problems, including it dealing with networking slightly differently. I couldn't get it to work - even without encryption - using wicd. Having had a read of [URL]... , I had a look at /etc/network/interfaces, which read; This file describes the network interfaces available on your system and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

[code]...

ra0 is now called wlan0, as far as I'm aware. I've read in several places that it is best to expunge this file of all references to wifi, so I removed the bottom section (after '# The primary network interface'). I still got nothing. However, if I go ahead and change the 'ra0's to 'wlan0's, it seems to work - wicd connects. Not very familiar with Debian (spent more time on SUSE. Drop your tomatoes - I like it. Any idea what is happening? Is what I'm doing wrong? Conversely, is the file wrong? Should it be reported? Against which package? Including any particular files?

Debian Configuration :: Creating A Network Bridge From Eth0 To Wlan0

Jan 18, 2016

I am very new to linux.I have a network camera which only has an Ethernet port but no WiFi. Sadly no Ethernet port is available close to the camera.

Therefore I now bought a raspberry pi and installed raspbian to create a bridge into the wireless network, for connecting the camera to the internet.I now played around with the interface- and bridge configuration but I have problems with it.This is how my interfaces file looks like:

(The WiFi is secured with WPA2 Enterprise)

Code: Select all# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)

# Please note that this file is written to be used with dhcpcd
# For static IP, consult /etc/dhcpcd.conf and 'man dhcpcd.conf'
# Include files from /etc/network/interfaces.d:
source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d

[code]....

The WiFi is connection works fine and I am in the internet using the WiFi.But I am wondering about eth0. The network parameters I specified are not the same as the parameters ifconfig tells me.Ip, Broadcast, Mask, nothing is as specified.It would be nice to give the camera a static IP that I can access it always with the same IP from the RaspberryPi.The Raspberry Pi itself gets always a new IP from the WiFi network. How do I get the camera into the internet using the existing connection of the Pi?

Debian Configuration :: Multiple Network Interfaces With VirtualBox?

Mar 29, 2010

I have a rather urgent problem with my network, I got two virtual network interfaces one internal and one external. The problem is; I can't get connection to internet. The external NIC is set as a NAT and the internal is... internal.

/etc/network/interfaces
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
address 192.168.1.200
netmask 255.255.255.0

Running with this configuration makes my internet connect go away, however if I remove the configuration for eth1 everything is working fine.

Debian Configuration :: Network / Interfaces Allow-hotplug And Auto?

Jan 10, 2011

I was just wondering if there's any point having both auto and allow-hotplug against the same interface in network/interfaces as allow-hotplug seems to bring an interface up at boot on its own.

Debian Configuration :: Ifconfig Wasn't Displaying The Same Information That Resides In /etc/network/interfaces File

Aug 14, 2011

i recently started sockets programming. In the process i began to look for relevant network information about my computer and realized that ifconfig wasn't displaying the same information that resides in my /etc/network/interfaces file. On the interfaces file my IP address is 192.168.1.109 for interface eth0 but ifconfig displays 192.168.1.101. I was under the impression that ifconfig got its information from the interfaces file but clearly doesn't. I tried re configuring the device with ifconfig and then disabling and re enabling the device with ifdown and ifup so that the device updated its information but it didn't.

Networking :: Make A Network Interfaces Configuration Immutable?

Mar 24, 2011

Similar to the linux command "chattr +i filename", I would sure like to set my eth0 interface immutable. so once I assign the eth0 interface's IP and gateway, make it stay set until I say otherwise.

this way, I can run dhclient or Networkmanager on another interface without having to fret that it may alter this interface. is there something out there that can do this?

Debian Configuration :: Wlan0 Gets Deactivated While Login

May 13, 2010

From yesterday on, I am not able to connect my Laptop to my WiFi Router automatically when logging in to gnome desktop.

The following is the message found in /var/log/messages.

Its Lenny 5.0.4 and I can see my wifi LED ON till the gdm login page. After the login, while loading my desktop, the LED goes OFF and I have to restart the network-manager for enabling the wifi again. Why is this happening? Do I have to change the configuration settings in /etc/dbus-1/system.d/ to fix this. I really don't know what change needs to be done there and where.

The same day when this problem started while logging in I got an error message from nautilus. The screen-shot is attached with this mail. Does this error have anything to do with the network issue?

Debian Configuration :: Wlan0 Absent - Card Definitely Working

Jul 7, 2010

I'm having problems getting my wireless network working. The same problem exists in both Debian 5.04 and Ubuntu 8.04. I'm using a Sonet ZEW2500P USB wireless card, which shows up when I look at lsusb. The card works under Windows, so its not a hardware problem.

When I run iwconfig, wlan0 simply doesn't show up on the list. It doesn't go by any other name either. I've tried adding iface wlan0 inet dhcp auto wlan0 to my /etc/network/interfaces file, but to no effect. I've tried using both the rt2000usb driver and the old rt2570 driver, and made sure both are not loaded at the same time using lsmod, but this doesn't help.

I wanted to try the CONFIG_NET_RADIO enable/rebuild kernel technique, but I can't find CONFIG_NET_RADIO anywhere in my autoconf.h file!

I assume someone will want to see a log file of some kind - just let me know which one (and where I can find it).

Debian Configuration :: How To Modify Traffic Between Two Interfaces In Linux

Aug 8, 2015

I have a laptop connected to internet via wlan0. I also have eth0 interface and with it I share internet. I want to modify/filter all the traffic passing by the first laptop, something like this:

Code: Select all                    *---------------------------*
                    |        LAPTOP 1           |      *--------------* ?
                    |-----*    *------*    *----*      |              |
    INTERNET<------>|wlan0|<-->|MY_APP|<-->|eth0|<---->|ANOTHER LAPTOP|
                    |-----*    *------*    *----|      |              |
                    *---------------------------*      *--------------*

I know that in FreeBSD it is possible to use ipfw for that purpose, because it build-in into kernel. We set for example rule Code: Select allipfw add divert 2000 ip from any to 1.0.1.1

and we can use our own application to process those packets, reinject them forward etc. It will work also fast, because as I said, it build into kernel.

Is there any standart Linux-based solution to do the same? I found some info about netmap-ipfw. Is this a correct solution? Or I have to use for example IP-aliases and iptables to do that?

I need to process all the IP-packets, not only TCP/UDP/etc-protocol. Solution also must be very fast.

Debian Configuration :: Bringing Up Wireless Interfaces At Boot Also

May 11, 2010

My new Squeeze machine detects all of my hardware including the LAN and WLAN cards, but only brings up the LAN card. There isn't even an entry for it in /etc/network/interfaces for me to modify. I tried adding the info manually but then the entire network wouldn't start. I had it configured as a static IP and I know the commands were correct due to them working on the LAN card. I believe that the name "wlan0" was causing the problem, but how else can I bring it up at boot?

Debian :: Still Can't Reload Network Interfaces?

Mar 24, 2011

So I've always asked this in the past when I get on a Debian system. This makes no sense to me but I just don't see how I restart network interfaces (i.e. eth0) on a standard Debian install. If I change the static I.P. address listed in /etc/network/interfaces from x.x.x.100 to x.x.x.101, I then assume I can simply do any of the following:

- /etc/init.d/networking stop | start
- ifdown eth0
- ifup eth0
- service networking stop
- service networking start

All the commands above do nothing. My only solution I know that works and implements the changes I've made is a complete system reboot which to me in Linux, is ridiculous. I've struggled with this over and over and nothing I do correctly assigns the new I.P. in the 'interfaces' file to the actual adapter. This isn't my single isolated Debian machine but every Debian machine I can get my hands on. Servers, workstations, VM's, any release, etc etc etc. Below is my interfaces configuration file:

Code:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

Debian Configuration :: Networking - Netinst CD - Internet Connection Only Works After Edit The Interfaces And Resolv.conf Files Manually

Debian :: Eeepc Wifi - Every Time Scan For Network Using Iwconfig Wlan0 Scan Or Wicd And Computer Completely Freezes

I installed squeeze on my eeepc 1015ped and downloaded the correct firmware-brcm80211 drivers but every time I scan for my network using iwconfig wlan0 scan or wicd, my computer completely freezes. I previously had a solid install running xmonad, and wicd was working like a charm (using the same broadcom driver) but i tinkered too much with it and decided to do a fresh install. I haven't quite run into a problem like this before.

OpenSUSE Network :: Network Bridge Betw/ Eth0 And Wlan0?
