When I stop/start vm(not restart), dhclient becomes up and ip is assigned by dhcp. Why? -------------------------------- yoshi@vbox:~$ uname -a Linux vbox 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt11-1 (2015-05-24) x86_64 GNU/Linux -------------------------------- yoshi@vbox:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
I'm trying to setup a DHCP server that serves several different VLANs, we have 5 in total. Our network is working correctly, with static IPs, we're able to ping across without any issues.
When I connect my debian box to an interface on VLAN5, statically assign an address in the correct range, it works. Similarly with all other VLANs.
To configure this box as a DHCP, I set one of the ports on the switch as trunk, connect that to the debian box to allow all VLAN traffic to reach my debian box.
I setup DHCP following the steps on [URL] ....
Then I configured different VLANs by following the steps on [URL] .....
However, with the vlans setup, I am unable to ping anything. This is essentially what I did.
Code: Select allSet the port on the switch to trunk with 802.1 encapsulation disable eth0 vconfig add eth0 5 # to add vlan 5 ifconfig eth0.5 192.168.5.254 netmask 255.255.255.0 up vconfig add eth0 5 # to add vlan 10 ifconfig eth0.5 192.168.10.254 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
I do not know why I am unable to get any connectivity through my VLAN interfaces.
I am connected to a network using any interface (eth0, eth1, or wlan0) that if my ip address was given out (dhcp) that my desktop responsiveness gets worse. Specifically the mouse has a sort of "sticky" feeling. I mean by that that I'm moving the physical mouse and the cursor is getting stuck here or there on the screen. It is extremely annoying. Here is my config file:
beethoven:~$ cat /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf # Configuration file for /sbin/dhclient, which is included in Debian's #dhcp3-client package. # # This is a sample configuration file for dhclient. See dhclient.conf's
I have setup a few machines within my house. The Debian Squeeze machines do not provide a host name in the DHCP client list on my router. Strangely, my Ubuntu, Android, and Blackberry machines do show host names. I have noticed the same behavior when wirelessly tethering my Debian laptop to my Android phone (which also uses DHCP). Is there something I need to enable to have the name show up on the router?
Setup a DNS/DHCP/Directory server on Debian? I would like to configure the things in Debian so that can join Linux and Windows(if possible as m not sure yet) clients to the directory server. Any links to setup both Forward and Reverse lookup zone in the environment.
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.
I just put a pfSense firewall inbetween my ADSL router and my LAN. It's configured to have a cachng DNS server and a DHCP server. Among other things. For reasons beyond this post the address range served by DHCP changed from 10.0.0.x to 192.168.1.x. The new DHCP server gives 192.168.1.1 as gateway and DNS server name and not the public IP addresses of our internet provider.
After reconnecting our client machines everything worked just fine on the win-xp boxes, but the Debian Squeeze servers and Ubuntu 10.4 clients all started to get network timeouts. If I ping public websites it works but browsing to the same servers fails. Other services like POP3 and IMAP also fails. All machines use WiFi to connect and the access point is the same as before.
What could it be that make the debian boxes fail? My laptop runs squeeze too and also fails. But when connecting to various other access points at hotels and such I do not get this problem.
Another weird thing is that the debian server running virtualbox cannot do things online but the virtual windows boxes running on this machine can. Weird! Where should I start looking? How is networking/dhcp clients on Debian different from Windows XP?
I'm running gnome desktop on squeeze system. When I boot my system seems to be using my internet modem as its dhcp server. The rest of the machines on my lan are correctly using my router for that purpose. As a result, what happens then is that my debian machine frequently gets a duplicate ip address assigned to it. I would like to specify to my debian computer that I want it to use the specific fixed ip address of my router for dhcp purposes.
Alright, I edited "/etc/default/isc-dhcp-server" and set "eth0" as the only thing listed for interfaces. I also have the code below in "/etc/dhcp/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf" and I even copied it to "/etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf" for good measure, and I can't get the DHCP server to start. As an intermediate to advanced user, I am under the high assumption that it is broken since everything in the docs has been set. I have googled for two days and cannot find a fix, so before I report it as a broken package, would somebody with more experience with the package chime in?
I hid my wireless setup because it contains my WiFi network info including key. This box is routing, doing DNS resolution, and firewalling just fine. I just cannot get the friggin' DHCP server to start no matter what I try.
Oh, and is it safe to delete "/etc/dhcp" or "/etc/dhcp3"? They appear to be duplicates of each other...
Up until very recently I've had a wired network, and at boot I'd see messages about DHCPREQUEST and DHCPOFFER and stuff as it set up the wired network.
Now I've just got wireless working instead, but it still tries to use DHCP on the no-longer-existing wired network. So it says "DHCPDISCOVER on eth0..." and waits for a bit, then again and waits again, and all the time the boot is waiting for a reply to its DHCP requests and it's not going to get one. It doesn't seem to do any harm, because once it's given up and proceeded with the boot then the wireless does seem to work fine, but I'd like to speed up the boot a little by cutting out this needless waiting. Has anyone got an idea how I can stop it? I tried in Preferences-Network connections and in Administration-Network, and in System Tools-Network tools, and also from the network icon in the task bar, but I can't find anything which lets me configure the wired network eth0 or disable it or disable the DHCP.
I have some beginner questions about DHCP, Avahi, and configuring a small home LAN.Suppose I have a dynamic IP address assigned by my ISP, which requires DHCP be enabled in my dsl modem/router/"firewall" [sic]. Suppose for simplicity I have just one PC behind the dsl modem.I think "enabling DHCP" in the modem/router means that a DHCP client runs on the router, which communicates with a DHCP server run by my ISP when I boot up a PC on my LAN. Is that guess correct? Can I get DHCP to assign a particular local IP, say 192.168.1.10 (which is not the one taken by the router--- for this discussion, let's say that is 192.168.1.0) to my PC each time I boot it up?
Now suppose I want to build a stand-alone firewall, so that my LAN will have the firewall and the first PC behind the modem, with the first PC virtually behind the firewall. By default, I think these will both have DHCP clients running which I need to configure properly. The firewall should also have a DHCP server which should control how local IP addresses are assigned, correct? I should try to arrange that the LAN has only DHCP server, only one NTP timeserver, only one DNS nameserver, correct?My first PC seems to have installed an autorun client called Avahi, which performs DNS multicast services and incorporates something called zeroconf which seems to have something to do with remote desktops, which I don't need and which is a potential security hazard. But it seems that Avahi is an intrinsic part of the KDE desktop and cannot be removed. Just want to be sure that Avahi can coexist comfortably with dhcp3-client, which is also installed on that PC. They perform different tasks, correct?If I can get the stand-alone firewall to work, I know I need to turn off the commercial firewall in the dslmodem/router/firewall device. Should I purchase a bridge and try to turn off the routing function also?
I have a home Debian server running, and i would like to set it up as a gateway. I have 2 networkcards in it. So internet comes from the modem and on the other card i want to setup a dhcp server and it has to share the internet. But i want it also to connect to a vpn and share the internet of the vpn.. Is that possible?
I installed the latest Debian on a computer to make a backup appliance. No GUI.When the computer starts, everything is okay. The DHCP client is running, the network interface have an address, fine.If I do a /etc/init.d/network restart (or stop + start), no more DHCP client. t is stopped when the interface is down. When the interface is up, I have to start it manually.1 - is it normal ?2 - isn't ifup's job to launch the dhcp client ?3 - can /etc/network/if-up.d be the right place to resolve this ?
I set up a dhcp server in the lan and assigned static ips to two computers, computer A and B, according to their mac address. Everything was running fine. But when I turned off computer A, connected computer C to the network, and assigned computer A's static ip to computer C without changing dhcp setting. Computer C was able to access the internet. When I turned on computer A, dhcp couldn't assign an ip address to it, and computer C showed an error message of ip conflict and failed to use internet. I wonder if dhcp server is able to prevent other computer from using the same static ip that is already assigned to a computer according to its mac address.
I have two Linux computers and one small home router with DHCP functionality. I configured the router with the "dynamic DHCP" setting, ie, the static DHCP with MAC-Address was not used. Before that, I used the manual IP configuration, defining the two computers' names in the /etc/hosts file.
10.0.0.2 comp2 10.0.0.3 comp3
Now, with DHCP, the above example is no longer appropriate, because the DHCP server is supposed to tell the computer what IP number it will receive. However, I am missing something, because I haven't figured it out yet how to make one computer know the other computer's name. Is it that I haven't installed a name-finding package? Is there a simple way to accomplish this (one computer finding the other computers' names)?
i am trying to get a pxe server working on a debian so other clients can boot off it. the problem has two parts.
1. getting the pxe working. so far the tftp part doesnt work. the client says tftp error. so i guess the dhcp portion is working, but theres something wrong with the /var/lib/tftpboot or the deamon config itself. 2. the other issue is that in the shop many system's have non-working disk drives. also many of them do not have a usb boot option in the bios. all i need to do is get the "bare" kernel file or grub(?) to boot over pxe and give me the ability to boot from a usb flash drive and load the rest of the linux files from there. my primary intention is NOT netinstall. although it wouldnt hurt. my intention is running a linux live usb on systems without bios usb boot support. ive read somewhere that a full pxe live boot requires nfs setup. i am asking for that, just so i can boot from a flash drive.
I've illustrated it on this picture, and hope to get the help i need to set it up... [URL]Thow it has to be furture secured, in that meaning it has to be abel to attach a eth2 on the main server, so i have 3 NIC's.Also, i want to have fully controll over ports, IP/MAC's and data overview (Such as a view of the files beeing downloadet/uploadet).
I posted a previous topic on bridging, and that didn't seem to work, so I went with Shorewall and I'm trying to setup NAT, but I'm struggling very badly. I have the interfaces configured where eth1 is my Local LAN (loc) network, and eth0 connects to my ISP (net). But my problem is that I have no clue how to forward traffic from eth1 to eth0, without using ProxyARP, which routes all traffic to eth1, and doesn't allow traffic out on itself. I've looked at the NAT tutorials, and they don't make sense to me, because I have two interfaces that I want to be able to talk to each other and the internet at the same time. Is there anyone who's good with Shorewall?
I'm running sid, and doing weekly updates. Recently I've been unable to mount nfs shares on one of my home computers. I haven't changed any settings, and nfs works fine on the other computers on my small home network. I suspect an update messed something up with nfs.
I follow the tutorial at [URL] to setup git over http, and create ssl self-signed cert through [URL]. (The command executed above is exactly the same as described in url, with only change to the name required.) However, while executing `git push upload master', command line prompt throws: error: Config with no key for remote upload-url fatal: bad config file line 9 in config What might be the root cause?
