Debian Configuration :: Reconfigured /etc/network/interfaces For A Static IP?

Jun 27, 2011

I have a Dell PowerEdge SC430, Squeeze 6.0.2 box, Broadcom NetXtreme NIC which works fine DHCP. The network-manager package is not installed. I have now reconfigured /etc/network/interfaces for a static IP:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.1.2

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?

I have a netgear wg111t that is running with ndiswrapper. It has an atheros chipset, but calling it ath0 didn't work.

Heres /etc/network/interface :

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.

Alright, every time I boot or shutdown my routing box, it hangs at configuring and deconfiguring network interfaces. Below is my interfaces file. I see no errors or warnings in my log and I am running a pure kernel, not tainted with proprietary drivers. All of my hardware is 100% supported.

Debian Configuration :: Static IP And Network Mounts

Jul 19, 2010

I moved to static Ip method for my laptop. I edited the interfaces file and it seems to work since I am writing this message from that laptop, but I have a new problem with my Debian. The mounts are not mounted during the startup anymore. Before I was using the network manager method and the nerwork mounts were all fine. Now with this method, they are not mounted and I need to mount them by firing "sudo mount -a" manually.

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.

OpenSUSE Network :: Wireless Connection Must Be Reconfigured After Hibernation

Mar 6, 2010

I have been running SUSE 11.1 on my HP laptop for over a year. For the most part, I am thrilled with it. However, when I awaken the computer from hibernation mode, I have to go into the Network Settings applet proceed with the wizard in order to get my wireless connection working.

Another irritating aspect is that if I go to a place with a Wireless Hotspot, the computer doesn't automatically pick it up. Again, I have to go through the Network Settings applet to get it working.

I want this to work as it does on Windows XP/Vista where I can put the computer to sleep and when I awaken it, then the wireless connection is automatically there for me, etc.

I have to think I probably need to tweak a setting somewhere, so if someone can tell me where to do this, great!

I am using an internal wireless card (Atheros AR928X PCI-EXPRESS). If you need additional info, let me know.

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?

Ubuntu :: ESSID Configuration - Wireless Network With Static IP

Apr 3, 2011

The wireless network on my laptop is configured with a static IP. (not using nm). When I take the laptop out of the range of my wireless router the essid is becoming off/any therefore when I'm back in range the connection is not reestablished and to re-enable the connection I gotta do "iwconfig wlan0 essid <essid name>" otherwise there is no connection. Make sure that essid stays configured unless I manually want to change 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

[code]...

Debian Configuration :: Static IP Switching Back To DHCP

Jul 15, 2010

I'm new to the forum and actually to Debian as well. Have been running Ubuntu for the past few years. Just setup a small Dell laptop to use as a Squeezebox and Print server. It's been up 6 days without a hitch as far as serving music to the squeezebox and printing. The problem is that it loses it's static IP, so as long as I look it up and change the radio Squeezebox and printer definitions around on the clients everything keeps working.

Does anyone have any ideas?If the connection drops for some reason and the system has to re-initialize the connection, shouldn't it use the /etc/network/interfaces file and get back to the static IP that it is configured for?If anyone has any ideas of why this could be happening or have a solution, I would really appreciate the help.

Debian Configuration :: Boot Hangs With 4.2.6 Static Kernel And Encrypted LVM

Dec 7, 2015

I use a static compiled kernel and a fully encrypted disk apart from a boot partition. I have recompiled and installed kernels many times. When I tried with the latest kernel from Testing, 4.2.6, the system will not boot. Not only that but the previous kernel now does not boot. However, a stock modular kernel does boot. The static kernel hangs at:

Code: Select allVolume group "dk" not found
Cannot process volume group dk
/run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: No such file or directory
WARNING: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to internal scanning.
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
/run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: No such file or directory

[Code] ....

And after giving the password the boot continues successfully. How to diagnose it further?

Debian Configuration :: Udev Static Device Change From Wheezy To Jessie

I am using a 3rd party kernel driver that does not support udev properly. When I was using wheezy I placed the required device files in /lib/udev/devices.

The udev in jessie does not appear to support this. Is there any way to have udev create these device files or will I have to create then using a script at boot-up?
