Ubuntu Networking :: VPN Service Failed To Start
Just completed the upgrade to 10.04 from 8.04, and ironing out the wrinkles. Since the upgrade, I'm not able to establish a VPN connection to my institute (a problem since outgoing mail REQUIRES a VPN connection) The pull down menu shows the connection as an option, but clicking on it brings up a separate window that simply says "The VPN connection CfA failed because the VPN Service failed to start." Never had this issue under Hardy, so not sure what's going on. Under "Configure VPN" the settings look the same as they always did.

CentOS 5 Networking :: IPTables Service Failed To Start
I have CentOS 5.2 just installed and massively updated with yum -update command. Than I tried to configure firewall. After changes via system_config_securitylevel_tui (open ssh, http, ftp, and 3306:TCP ports) iptables service can't start with message

> /sbin/service iptables start
Flushing firewall rules: [OK]
Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: mangle filter nat [OK]
Unloading iptables modules: [OK]
Applying iptables firewall rules: iptables-restore v1.3.5: Couldn't load match `TCP':/lib64/iptables/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Error occurred at line: 18
Try `iptables-restore -h' or 'iptables-restore --help' for more information.

I erased the iptables service and installed it again with yum. How can I make this service work?

Networking :: Network Service Failing To Start
I have recently installed CentOS onto an old machine to get it up and running as a basic web/mail server. Originally the Network Interface worked ok, however I have been editing /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 to try and set the IP address to be static.Now when I run the 'service network restart' command it won't bring the eth0 interface up and comes up with the following errors;

ifcfg-eth0 Line 3 DEVICE: command not found
missing config file ifcfg-ifcfg-eth0

It doesn't seem to like any of the command words, even though most of these were in the original file that worked and the ones I added to do static I have commented out.

I have setup a CentOS 5.5 server as a DHCP server. That will be it's only task in a Cisco callmanger VoIP environment The DHCP server that comes with CentOS 5.5 is from ISC V3.0.5 -redhat.

The server (HP DL360) has two physical NIC's of which only NIC1 is used (ETH0)

ifconfig shows:


The interface has a fixed IP setup.

My dhcp.conf file looks like this:


When I start (try to) dhcpd via the service interface or via the prompt as

Code: service dhcpd start

I get an [FAILED] message and the following is in /var/log/messages


But when I start the DHCPD on the comamnd prompt in debug mode it looks as follows:


and /var/log/messages shows:


Why does the system ask a declaration for eth0
