General :: IP Address Lookup - Where Are The Interface Configurations (set By Ifconfig, Not The Static Ones) Stored
Jan 28, 2011
where are the interface configurations (set by ifconfig, not the static ones) stored? I'm asking because I'm trying to understand, more broadly, the order of IP address lookup. If I ping the local machine (localhost, or one of the interfaces) no messages get sent out (at least according to wireshark), so some local lookup must be taking place.
I got this message on Friday from just one domain. uote:mailsrv.forthnet.gr #<mailsrv.forthnet.gr #5.5.0 smtp; 554 5.5.0 Your message was considered to be spam by the FORTHnet Antispamming Policy and was not delivered to the recipient. The following spam tests returned positive for this message:FORGED_RCVD_HELO,RCVD_IN_BRBL. For further information visitWe are not a spamming community but it seems we have a statice IP address that has a Reverse lookup to "myipaddress.static.lyse.net" and not my email domain. Would setting a cname mail.mydomain.no -> myipaddress.static.lyse.net cure this problem or are there more tricks to be performedOnce I have cured the FORGED_RCVD_HELO I can move to getting the IP removed from BARACUDA.
I would like to create several aliases to eth0, but have the addresses assigned by DHCP instead of being set to static IP's. Is this even possible? All the examples I've seen assign a static IP using the command: ifconfig eth0:0 192.168.1.11 up
I'm trying to install a Linux driver for my wireless network card (D-Link DWL-G510) on my Red Hat Linux 7.1 machine with a 126.96.36.199 kernel. I downloaded the serial monkey driver from the sourceforge site and was able to successfully compile the rt73 module and load it into the kernel. The problem now is that everytime I issue the command ifconfig wlan0 up it keeps returning with the following error message: wlan0: unknown interface: No such device.
I'm at a loss as to what to do here. I specifed wlan0 as the alias for the rt73 module in the modules.conf and also tried to load the driver with the command modprobe rt73 ifname=wlan0 (this specifies the interface name according to the instructions packaged in the driver), but the error message still keeps coming up.
Is there something else I need to do in Linux to configure the wlan0 part or is the module not recognizing the wireless network card? It would be quite strange if it is the later since all information from the Internet is indicating this is the linux driver I should be using for mentioned wireless card.
then I can access via ssh by two addresses the one I got from dhcp (10.17.148.223) and the static one (10.17.148.26) I put ifconfig and and 10.17.148.223 appear on eth0 I restart my server and I just can access from 10.17.148.223 I have to put
ifdown eth0 ifup eth0
Again...to access by my static ip, y can access my page by its dns on my server, but I cant access from other computer...so, I guess when my static adress appears on ifconfig I would be able to access my page from other computer...
When I execute the wvdial command on the terminal the following error appears joey-suse:~ # wvdial --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60 --> Cannot get information for serial port. --> Initializing modem. --> Sending: ATZ ATZ OK .....
The /etc/resolv.conf file has the DNS addresses as below nameserver 188.8.131.52 nameserver 184.108.40.206
How do I resolve this and connect to the internet?
Version 10.04 LTS. Installed desktop version and network worked but I needed a static IP address and the install configures for a DHCP configured address. I tried changing to static address using the System->Preferences->Network Connections application but was unable to get the system to come up with the network up.
So I manually modified the /etc/network/interfaces and the /etc/resolv.conf files. I restart the system but when I do an ifconfig, I don't see a configured IP address on eth0 (only the loopback address). If I run /sbin/ifup eth0 everything then works fine and ifconfig shows the correct address bound to eth0.
I imagine that there is already a thread for setting up a static IP, but I haven't been able to find it yet, so here we go.I have recently installed Fedora 15 on home machine. I have a very simple home network. Belkin wireless router with Window and Linux systems. The router is setup to be DHCP server. Router is setup to have lease time = Forever. Even with this setup, my router is assigning different IP address for my linux machine every time I boot the machine. So I would like to setup a static IP on my Linux.From my research so far, I'm suppose to make some changes to the file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0. But I don't have this file in this folder. Should I just create this fil
Ubuntu was a good choice for free server O/S. I am currently downloading it. My ISP wants to bind my static IP to a MAC address of the device that will be making my connection for me. Should my server be behind my router or in front of it? I kinda wanted it to be the access point and be able to monitor the usage from all the terminals in my house. We have 4 other PC's, a laptop and a PS3. My server is a Acer Altos G530 with 3.2 Xeon Processor, 4 gb of ECC DDR,
Centos el5xen x86_64 in a company network, novell-netware, Static IP I have several issues with the Xen network configuration. This configuration worked before, and was maded by a other personn with a higher level in centos and network . I'm trying to re-install xen in bridging mode.
1) The dom0 ping in the company network, but can't acess to the Internet.
I de-activated firewall, iptables and SE-Linux for the test.
the ifconfig-a command return eth0 lo sit0 (IPV6 encapsuled in IPV4) vif0 vnet0 but no Peth0 Physical device
I am trying to point my domain to my server with a static IP address. My domain is registered with Network Solutions and they ask "Primary and Secondary DNS" settings in their setup. What primary and secondary DNS settings I need to give when I have a dedicated server with static single IP address with BIND installed.
I'm trying to grok a problem I'm having with an embedded machine. I'm pretty sure I can track down the larger problem, but I came across a usage of ifconfig that I don't understand, and I'm pretty sure this is the command that is failing.
The command is: ifconfig eth0 192.168.78.20:9134
I understand how ifconfig works. What I don't understand is the :9134. I can't see anything in the docs about what this means. I know in most contexts it's a port number, but what does it do when bringing up a network interface? Does it limit it to only using port 9134?
I have a laptop running 11.2 with an internal Broadcom-based Wi-Fi card that's working fine. I'm trying to get 802.11n going with the WUSB600N. The USB ID on this device is 1737:0079. I believe this means it's a "V2" with an RT3572 chip.
No driver loads for this device when it's plugged in. If I do a "modprobe rt2870sta", a driver loads, and syslog shows "rtusb init" and "usbcore: registered new interface driver rt2870". But ifconfig -a doesn't show a new network interface. I've also tried building the RT3572 driver from the manufacturer's web site. It builds fine, and modprobe will load it, but I get the same results as the rt2870sta driver.
For monitoring a network [LAN] I need a single C/C++ program using unix commands to retrieve the username, associated static IP address, what time user logged in, log out, total time system used by user. so that if a system has several users who used it @ different times of the day... then i need details of all users me,time of log in, static IP &all
What is the Linux command to clear IP address of an interface without bringing it down and/or restarting network services. Seems strange ifconfig is able to change IP address but has no option to clear it, or am I wrong?
EDIT:As simple as ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0. They should have put it in the man
I am using debain 6 and using a Sierra modem c888 to connect internet. I am using wvdial package for connecting the modem. I am able to connect internet. The question I have is, how do get the gateway address of the newly created ppp0 interface?
I am struggling with what might be a minor problem. I have a home computer which I would like to setup as a webserver and hence give it a static IP address. It is connected to by wire to a router that is connected to the WAN via PPPOE. If I enable the network card on DHCP it works fine in browsing the web. If I now set it to static IP address it does not brown. Essentially I use the command setup to run the static IP setup. I then set my IP address to 192.168.254.X , the subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and the default gateway to 192.168.254.1 (this is the router connected to the WAN). I am able to ping the router, however when I try and browse on static it does not work. Your help will be most appreciated as this has taken way too long to solve and I have Googled as much without success.
it was working but after i installed updates and rebooted it could not get a ip address seems like strange timing it still registers under ifconfig it is not even working on the live usb anyway i can test to be sure it is the chip?
I am transferring the contents of my home directory from one computer (KDE 3.5 - openSUSE 11.2) to a new one (KDE 4.6 release 6 - openSUSE 11.4). Since I do not want to transfer all the residual components, I have been doing it in separate chunks. I have successfully transferred all my e-mails from Kmail but cannot find the Address Book file to transfer. Please can someone point to where it is stored.
i have a ubuntu 9.10 server on a wlan behind a debian server/router/firewall.i have had dhcp assigning the ip address to the server and then accessing the server through a port forward that has been working okay.i want to assign a static ip address to the server so that i wont have to worry about checking that as i reboot the system and so forth.
