Ubuntu Networking :: Multiple Interfaces - Connect Server From Computer
Mar 6, 2011
I have a built-in gigabit Ethernet card which is connected to a router. Router's IP address is 192.168.2.1 My IP is 192.168.2.161 (eth0) I also have a Nokia N900 connected via USB and its IP is 192.168.1.1. It serves as a second router and on that interface (usb0) my IP is 192.168.1.2 N900 is also connected to a wireless network. Router of that network has the IP 10.0.0.1 and N900's IP is 10.0.0.50 (wlan0) My problem is that I want to reach a server at 10.0.0.7 from my computer. Is there a way I can do that?
I'm trying to connect one computer to two others in an ad-hoc infrastructure.
[computer 1] ---- [computer 2] ---- [computer 3]
computer 2 is running Linux and has a single NIC wlan0. I want to it to connect to both computer 1 and computer 3 so each computer can talk to the other. No switch is available so it needs to be an ad-hoc setup.
I would like a basic firewall on my netbook and first attempted this by using firestarter as i have no experience in writing IPTABLES rules from first principle and to be honest the syntax looks horrific! the problem with firestarted is that when i selected WLAN0 to be the internet connected port everything worked fine until i connected to a VPN at which nothing would work (the only error i got was when pinging an IP address when i got sendmsg not permitted) my normal setup is this.... normally im connected via WLAN0 to the internet. but one one particular network i must activate the VPN to use anything, this creates another interface tun0. both wlan0 and tun0 will be assigned an ip address but only the tun0 will do anything (the wlan0 one is configured by the network to just allow traffic to the vpn gateway and nothing else) what i really need is some way of creating a basic firewall (drop all incomming except ports i specify) that lives on wlan0 unless tun0 is active in which case it moves to tun0
Is there a way to do multiple interfaces in tcpdump? I have found that when using "-i any", not all packets are captured (compared to "-i eth0" on a machine with only one interface). I need to monitor traffic on some machines with as many as 6 interfaces, and get these packets that "-i any" misses. When I give the "-i" option multiple times, it seems to only use the last one.
Adapter 2: HTC Desire tethered via USB. When I start from scratch, with no remembered networks in the network manager, the Ethernet is shown as "Auto Ethernet". When I then connect the HTC Desire, the new network is shown in the network manager also as "Auto Ethernet". Previously, when I right clicked on the network manager and selected "Edit Connections", there were multiple "Auto Ethernet" entries under the wired tab.
Now (and I do not know what changed, sorry), I only see one entry. When I edit this entry (say, add a route), then the route is added for both network interfaces. This used to still work, so I was not worried about the name clash, but now it is causing problems so I need to have a different name for each network interface.
I have the following setup: Client A, having 2 network interfaces, eth0 and eth1, both with the IP address 192.168.1.1/32. Client B, also having 2 network interfaces, eth0 and eth1, with the IP addresses 192.168.1.2. The routing table on client A has one entry: 192.168.1.2 dev eth0 The routing table on client B has one entry: 192.168.1.2 dev eth1. Basically the idea is to send the upload traffic one one interface and the download traffic on the other interface. (Client B could serve as a gateway). However, with this setup, well... nothing works. The packets received by Client B are ignored. Does the linux kernel have anything against routing packets coming from an interface, although he thinks the source is on another interface?
I have 4 interfaces, dvb0_0 - dvb0_3. Each one has a multicast stream coming in on it. The program I am using to decode these streams only accepts one interface though. How can I "combine" so that the program, listening on 1 ip can get all 4 streams? they are on groups 126.96.36.199-4
I am trying to run some benchmark tests for multicast. What I want to do is have one system send multicast packets and another receive it on all it's interfaces (eth0-eth3). Whenever I run receiver on more than one interface I get echo effect (if I receive on x interfaces then I get same packet x number of times). Is this how it is supposed to behave? It does not make any difference whether I use loop-back or not. I have set SO_REUSEADDR to yes. I run separate instance of receiver on each interface. I am doing this on RHEL5 systems.
I have got a problem in the configuration of the network for my Linux box. The distribution is Slackware 12.2 with the 188.8.131.52-smp kernel. There are three ethernet NIC, one on the motherboard with Atheros AR8121/AR8113 chip and two on PCI card which with RealTek 8169. I installed the module for Atheros which is the atl1e.ko and I defined the configuration for the three NICs in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf. When I hit the commend ifconfig I see all the three interfaces eth0, eth1, and eth2, but the address are not distributed between the NICs as I'd like so I thought to resolve the inconvience with udev, but I don't know how to proceed because there is a strange situation.
If I control the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules I see a strange situation: Once the file contains nonly a line for the Atheros NIC but if I reboot the system there are the two lines for the two RealTek NICs and everytime the system is rebooted there is a change between these two alternatives. A detail I noted is that the two modules atl1e and r8169 are both always loaded, so udev has always the chance to detect the hardware but for some reason that I don't know something goes wrong. Another related problem that bothers me is the absence of udevinfo and udevtest. Have I perhaps to reinstall udev?
configure a server with two network interfaces? This system is physically moved from one network to another every few days (different buildings but connected by a VPN). I'd like to be able to control the IP address of the system depending on which port I plug the network cable into with a static setting. Right now the system will connect to the local network, but any requests to go beyond the subnet get lost. The only way I can get the system to talk outside of its subnet is to comment out the second interface.
This may sound stupid but I've got to ask. Can I connect multiple computers running Ubuntu & run software from one computer from the other? I know how to connect using SSH & to copy files back & forth but I don't know how or if I can share programs.
the default for /etc/network/interfaces? I believe I screwed it it up because I can detect my wireless, it just won't allow me to connect to it. The settings in the /etc/network/interfaces are all messed up. I'm running Ubuntu 9.10.
I have a weird issue that I have not seen on any forum. My jaunty on DELL studio laptop seems connected to net, but I can not access any network service (ssh, firefox etc.). But when I connect a cable the cable lights blink as it should be and in wireless connection my wifi light blinks.
It was working 2 days ago without problem, and I have not done big changes recently.I removed and reinstalled network-manager and network-manager-gnome. Nothing changed. I see a message in each restart as follows (when Openafs is starting). I can reproduce it with "/etc/init.d/openafs-client restart"
ADVISEADDR:error in specifying interfaces: no existing ip interfaces found
a Netgear router with DHCP off at 192.168.0.1 my computer
eth0 at 192.168.0.2 wlan0 at 192.168.0.2
The wlan0 interface always connects to the router, while the eth0 interface connects to other computers with crossover and acts as a dnsmasq DHCP server for network boot and installation.
If I use the Gnome NetworkManager to enable both connections, that is, with wlan0 connected to the router/internet and eth0 to another computer, both as 192.168.0.2, I cannot access the internet while eth0 is connected.
Why is this? How can I configure my computer to follow wlan0 for Internet usage, but use eth0 for itself (the latter is working but blocking wlan0).
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.
I am using squid 3.1.12 as a proxy cache. All the requests initially land on a Apache server which acts as a reverse proxy server, the Apache redirects some URLs based on the context to Squid server. This Squid server based on the URL needs to forward the request to the specific tomcat server where the application is deployed. I am able to configure just for one application but how do I configure multiple tomcat servers(each tomcat having different application deployed on it). Squid needs to redirect based on the URL.In Squid.conf I made the following changes
Here Squid is deployed on my host [URL], Apache redirects any URLS with the context 'ABC' or 'DEF' to squid. Squid needs to redirect it to the individual hosts thats [URL] or [URL] based on the URL. I have commented the entry for DEF in my squid.conf as it was not working. But it does work for any URLs with ABC as the context.
I am currently trying to upkeep and use my recently deceased fathers ubuntu machines, but as of 6 months ago I had never used Ubuntu or anything like it. I'm not trying to do all that much with it but a few days ago one of the machines lost its ability to connect to the internet, whereas every other machine in the house connects through the router just fine (wireless and ethernet.) I believe i've been able to diagnose part of the problem, the computer cannot connect to a DNS, but I have no idea as how to go about fixing it. My knowledge of Ubuntu is limited to just a few terminal commands. This computer is the one we use to network all of our printers and there are also some critical files on this machine that I need.
My question is about TCP parameters in Linux. By now, I want to change the default values of:
Initial Timeout ACK Delay Idle Connection Timeout
I have a Linux Box with kernel 2.6.x and 2 ethernet interfaces. I know TCP is a stack that doesn't have anything to do with ethernet devices. Said that, the question: is there a way to set custom values for each interface? For example, a server listening to connections in eth0 would use one value for Idle Connection Timeout and another server listening to connections in eth1 could use a different value for that parameter.
I have Ubuntu 9.10 setup on a test box. I am able to connect to my Win XP box shares but I cannot connect to my Win 7 (64 bit) box I get the usual 'Unable to mount location'. I can get to the Win 7 share from my other Win box so it is a valid share. I also cannot connect via the Remote desktop viewer. I am afraid that if I cannot get this going my Ubuntu experiment i over before it started.
if I install dhcp ip on my computer, then my computer will not connect to the network, but if I set it up with static ip then my computer will connect to the network. but after 5 minutes later my computer will be mounted from the server dhcp ip. and my computer is not connected anymore to the network dropped out again.
I have 5 linux ssh servers at my office that are behind a router. How do I connect to any one specific server from outside the LAN? Do I have to port forward the router giving each machine it's own port? That seems clunky.
