Fedora Networking :: How To Assign Two IP Addresses To One NIC
Jul 29, 2009
I have connected my computer to network. Computers in network have dynamic ip address which is assigned by ADSL modem's DHCP. Besides this I want to have static IP address for same NIC. So is it possible to have both static and dynamic IP address for single NIC? If so how can I assign it using command and also in GUI?
How do I assign IPv4 and IPv6 static addresses permanently in OpenSUSE 11.2? Currently I am only able to assign either IPv4 or IPv6 static address not both. I cannot find even the interfaces file(/etc/sysconfig/network/interfaces).
I noticed that my internet connection wasn't automatically brought up each time I logged into Fedora so I opened the system-config-network tool and edited my network adapter by checking the box marked "automatically start at boot/login." To my surprise, the connection went down and upon trying to click on the device to let the manager bring up the connection the greyed-out phrase "device not managed" appeared underneath the device name and wouldn't allow me to connect.
Even when I used ifconfig/dhclient to get the connection up nothing happened. I could get the router to assign an IP address through DHCP, pinged a few sites to make sure it was legit, but still couldn't use firefox to browse anything. Seems as if network manager GUI is conflicting with command line attempts to bring the network up. I'd like to permanently disable system-config-network if possible because it's acting screwy!
I installed Fedora 13 on my laptop today after deleting a badly screwed up Windows XP partition. Everything installed smoothly even my Broadcom drivers but I can't seem to figure out how to get Firefox to access the web with a URL.
I can ping Google, and can get to it in Firefox if I use the IP address from the ping, but going to [url] in Firefox will give me an error message about not being able to find the server at the web address. I was also able to update from the terminal with yum update just fine. I've tried searching Google for some answers, and maybe I just can't phrase my query right, but I found nothing that I could use to try and fix my problem.
I've attached a HardInfo report which I hope could be useful if you need to know what my hardware is (an HP Pavilion zv5000 laptop).
I am trying to configure my IPv6 network. My computers are behind a Fedora gateway IPv6-configured, which is working great. But for computers inside my network, it seems I am getting only internal addresses from DHCP. Here is my ifconfig for an internal computer:
i know exactly what i need to do, im just not familiar enough with command line to do it properly.i have 7 computers.the first 4 are connected to a router via wireless at one end of the house. of the last 3 only 1 will be able to access the router via wireless, so it needs to share it's one wireless connection via ethernet. this computer i'm going to call 'server'server will have two IP'swlan0 192.168.1.6 this connects to the router that has internet access.eth0 i intend to have the following settingsip:192.168.0.1sub: 255.255.0eth0 will connect to a second router, where the cat5 cable goes from the server, into the internet port of the router where i will define the router's static IP:IP: 192.168.0.100sub: 255.255.255.0gateway 192.168.0.1i have then set the router IP for LAN handling as 192.168.27.1 and all ethernet connections will have a 192.168.27.x IP.
so i need to know how to, without a gui application, use the terminal to assign server eth0 a proper IP address, and tell the server to take the connection it has and share it through eth0 to supply internet for the last 2 computers via ethernet.i had it set up in this way with a windows machine being the one that had the wifi access, but i'd rather have it setup for the ubuntu server to do this task. security is imperative for these 3 remaining machines, so just getting 2 more wifi adapters for a connection to the initial router isn't an option.the 2 that connect to server do so through SSH and though server IS connected via wireless it only makes outward connections through
My server has 2 network cards. I have SLES 10 SP2 installed on this server. I had configured Ethernet bonding on this machine using 2 NICs. Now I want to assign 2 different IP's to 2 different NICs. I am able to do this without any issue using yast. ifconfig command shows that eth0 has 192.168.1.10 and eth1 has 192.168.1.12. Rest all networking details are same (netmask, gateway, DNS)
Strange thing: When I unplug only eth0, (eth1 is plugged in correctly) I am not able to ping any IP. If I unplug only eth1, (eth0 is plugged in) I am able to ping both IP's.
Is it possible to configure two IP addresses using one NIC? I'm implementing a VPN server on network 192.168.1.0, ultimately to be accessed over the Internet and through an ADSL router with port-forwarding to the server. Right now I'd like to test it on the LAN, but with the VPN client and server both on the 192.168.1.0 network, that test would not be be valid.
If I had a spare NIC I could put the server on both the 192.168.1.0 network and, say, a 10.0.0.0 network, configure the client on 10.0.0.0 and test. Not having a spare NIC, I'm wondering if it is possible to configure the server with two IP addressese NIC.Virtualising hosts are able to do something similar when running guests with NICs in bridged mode. Log files show they switch eth0 into promiscuouse.In case it matters the server OS is Slackware 13.0.
I have set up a cloud (Ubuntu) environment in my test lad and it's working fine I am confused setting up the public IP in the production environment. The cloud instance will get only a Internal IP address ( Private) we cannot bind the Public Ip to the cloud instance as it uses Elastic IP, so I am confused how can I set up this if I have about 250 Public Ip to 250 cloud instance. How will I map this 250 Public IP with the 250 internal IPs is there any hardware device.
Samsung N150 LaptopI installed WICD. I can see all the wireless networks, and wired works fine, but everytime I try connecting to a wireless network it says, "Unable to get IP"Can someone help me remedy this? I am very new to ubuntu so I have no idea how to do ything..When I go to Network Tools, I see:Network Device: Loopback interface
I am trying to manually set up a number of static IPv6 addresses to one of the physical network interfaces on my 8.04server box.
I tried to use the "ip" utility like that:/ip addr add [myIPv6addr] dev eth0 label eth0:0
which was accepted by ip (no errors) and the IP address was correctly assigned to eth0. But using "ip addr show" I do not see any reference to the label I defined and "ip addr show dev eth0 label eth0:0" does not come back with anything (empty output).
This seems to contradict the information I found on the ip manpage and I wonder if this is a bug or a misconfiguration on my side. Did anyone successfully used the label functionality with ip?
Using Ubuntu Server maverick here - after altering /etc/network/interfaces to use a static ip and checking /etc/resolv.conf (no alteration needed) no network services were working at all. Here are the contents of interfaces:
Code: auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.0 gateway 192.168.1.254
I was fairly certain that this was verbatim from my previous server which is no longer attached to the network. After hours of fooling around with no success I changed the address to 192.168.1.99 and it worked perfectly. So my question is: why? My old server used 100. Could the router refuse to give a new server the same address or something like that since that address had been taken in the past?
I am a certified newbie into linux. I am using now ubuntu 9.04. Now here is my question. Is it possible to assign your own IP address on your ubuntu desktop, I mean a fixed IP address? Because everytime I start my computer, my internet service provider will automatically assigned a NEW IP address to my computer, but when I'm on windows the ip address is fixed.
I've installed and configured lampp and joomla. I am trying to learn how to use the joomla under ubuntu using only my computer as my local host. But when I restart my computer, the IP Address that is assigned is different to what I used when I installed joomla so I cant access my website even if I am using the same computer when I installed it. Is it possible to assign a fixed IP Address to my computer under ubuntu.
I recently just upgraded from humble Linux user to confused Linux admin of my own virtual Linux server. When I issue the ifconfig command I get following output.
venet0:0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr 00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00 inet addr:188.8.131.52 P-t-P:184.108.40.206 Bcast:220.127.116.11 Mask:255.255.255.255 UP BROADCAST POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MTU:1500 Metric:1
The WAN IP of the interface is not really 18.104.22.168 I just changed that IP for security reasons.What I am trying to figure out, is it possible to assign a private IP address to the same interface or can I only have one IP address per interface. I understand I have a mask of /32 so I am not going to be able to subnet the address to create any more addresses, so I assume I am stuck with the WAN IP (public IP) that I have, and just need to deal with it.
The reason I ask this is because I have been reading through several DNS/BIND tutorials/walk-throughs, and a lot of them specify setting up a intranet access with 192.168.1.1 address for the local DNS server, but since I am connecting to the sever via SSH I figure I do not need a private IP address.
I've used two internet services to show me my IP address, and I get different results:1. Whatsmyip.org : ***.**.109.***2. ipchicken.com : ***.**.111.***All the * numbers are same, except 109 and 111. (or link me to explanation) of which one's which?
My machine has ONE ethernet card and is on a LAN.IP address is assigned to hosts using DHCP.I can have more than one MAC address on LAN by running Virtual Machine and setting network to bridged. This way, my virtual machine simply acts like there is one more machine in the network.Running VMWare for this job is a a bit heavy on resources. Is there a way so that I can I can have 2 or more ip addresses with different MAC address on the same machine without having to run VirtualBox.
By googling, I think its related to bridging and tap. And, I am sure thatts NOT IP-ALIASING because in ip-aliasing both the ip addresses have the same MAC address.Basically, I want my system to have interfaces like:-eth0 - which was originally presentlo- thats always present :|newint0 - New interface with new MAC address and IP addresses which can access my LAN directly. Its like if I bind, let us suppose curl to this interface, its like a different connection
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10, and I want DHCP to assign an IP address automatically. I can ping my router, and get a reply. I just have no idea how to do this.I'm trying to get my Ubuntu machine onto my Windows network.
I'm looking for a method to assign a default gateway via dhcp randomly depending on ether the last char of the mac being odd or even, or the time the user connects. Is there a good reliable way to achieve this?
Since I have a new internetaccount, 2 days ago, I have a problem on my server [Fedora Core 8]. I use it as a router.
eth0 is for the internet. eth1 is for my LAN.
But since my new internetaccount my server uses eth1 for the internet. This is a line from my syslog:
Code: NetworkManager: <info> Policy set 'System eth1' (eth1) as default for routing and DNS. I killed the NetworkManager daemon and now it works but this must not be the way to do it? Where do I tell my server that I use eth0 for routing and DNS?
I want to setup 1Gbps our lab network and we purchased 'Buffulo Giga layer switch ' with 24ports. Is there a way to tell DHCP to assign specific IP to a particular MAC address of a machine ? We want to use DHCP and whatever the port we use ,it should have same IP ..
I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 with Ubuntu Karmic that was working like a charm until last week.When I'm using my college's wireless I can browse just fine, but when I'm in my home's network the web addresses cannot be resolved.I was suspecting of DNS error, but it's the same DNS address in all the other computers, and the whole network is working just fine.The thing is that if I use the IPs, for instance 22.214.171.124 for Google, it works fine, both pinging and browsing. So the problem is in resolving the addresses...
I am running a dual boot PC, Ubuntu 10.10 & Win7. I do sticky static IPs on my local network, but it doesn't work cause the Ethernet adapter gets a different MAC address in Windows 7 (EF:9F:E9:F7:F7:F7) than it shows for Ubuntu 10.10 (00:13:74:00:5C:3. I am not sure if this is a Windows problem or something up with Ubuntu. The card is an on-board Atheros L2 fast Ethernet adapter. I have tried updating the drivers in Windows & nothing is working.
I would like to know if a rule has been applied to the iptables.active file to accept direct connections on port 22 through an IP address, can I also add a mac address/addresses to the rules such that if I am not on the network with the accepting IP address, that my MAC address will still get me in?
