Networking :: Assigning Process To Use Specific Nic

Apr 19, 2010

I want to be able to tell processes/programs somehow to use a specific nic. I have a laptop (used as dekstop) and want to make pidgin use my wireless. I have a gigabit wired connection and a wireless connection. I want to force pidgin to use the wireless connection. But more specifically, I just want to block pidgin from using eth0... how to go about that? I can't find anything that will block applications... I could block outside servers from communicating with eth0, but I don't want to do that.

CentOS 5 :: Assigning An IP To Folder / Process?

Jun 14, 2009

This is a long shot but I'm looking for a way to assign an IP to a specific location or process. I'm running a server for a small indie game that I liked, I intend on running as many gameservers as possible from this server, however I hit a problem: The game limits servers to 4 per IP address, after this the servers no longer are able to connect to the main server and therefore be used. My server has enough IPs to run many gameservers, but I'm unable to work this out.

I need to assign either an IP address to a process or folder, right now I have it set up like so: (assuming = server IP)

/gameservers/server1/program < assigned to
/gameservers/server2/program < assigned to
/gameservers/server3/program < assigned to
/gameservers/server4/program < assigned to


I do not have access to modifying the core program, it runs in Java. How would I go about doing this, if indeed possible? I need to either apply the selected IP to a folder or process without changing the actual program.

Networking :: Assigning Eth0 Value To Device

Dec 14, 2010

I have to do a project on network security.For that i have to capture the packets from the device. I installed libpcap tool in ubuntu. If I give ifconfig -a it lists out eth0, wlan0, lo. I am able to connect to the internet via eth0. But when I give

#include <stdio.h>
#include <pcap.h>
int main()
char *dev, errbuf[PCAP_ERRBUF_SIZE];


It says device is null. I'm not able to run sniffex.c program also. All I want to do is to capture the live network level packets and analyse them.

Networking :: Assigning Eth0 To PCMCIA Nic?

Apr 26, 2010

Just completed installing Xubuntu 9.04 to my old Dell Latitude CPi and it seems to be working quite well. However I need to assign interface eth0 to my pcmcia network card (as opposed to eth1 or eth2). I have two cards to try out. One of them comes up as eth1 and the other as eth2. There is no eth0 listed when I run ifconfig -a. There is no built-in network cards on the laptop, so I don't know why it won't assign eth0 to either of the cards.

how to assign eth0 to either of the two PCMCIA network cards.

General :: Script To Kill Process With Specific Character

Feb 11, 2011

I have a command that outputs as follows:

user1 18253 1 0 Feb09 ? 00:00:00 dbr UT:msmenu


I know I can grab the ones with what I want to kill (which are the ones with question marks) with:

what I need to know is how can I loop through the results of the second one and kill them by id (the second column).

Networking :: DHCP Script - Assigning Multiple IP Addresses By Mac?

Sep 6, 2010

Ive been trying to give certain clients an IP adres by mac adress. For this I use the folowing code:

host apex {
hardware ethernet 00:00:00:00:00:00;

This works perfectly, however when I try to add a second client this way it doesnt. I tried to add the above code multiple times as a whole (2 times the above code) but that doesnt work. I also tried to just add more lines under host apex but this also doesnt work.

So my question is: How do I add more of this mac related IP adress assignments in the dhcp.conf?

Ubuntu Servers :: Program/Process Route To Specific Network Device?

Jul 30, 2010

Is there a way to bind specific programs to specific network devices (not IPs, since I have dynamic IPs)?

For example, I wish for irssi to route through eth0 and w3m to route through eth1. Keep in mind these devices have dynamic IPs, so I cannot attached them to an IP.

The solution cannot be accomplished through route since route pivots on IPs not devices.

Networking :: Red Hat Not Recognizing/assigning Onboard Gigabit Ports Correctly

Jan 18, 2011

I have two onboard gigabit Ethernet ports and 3 10Gb add-in fiber ports. When everything is cabled but nothing is IP'ed yet, I do an ifconfig -a and the two gigabit ports are showing as "__tmp2143330114" and "__tmp1076785124", eth0, eth1 and eth3 show as the 10Gb addin cards. On other (identical) servers, eth0 and eth1 are always the gigabit ports and eth2, 3, and 4 are the 10Gb ports. Anyone know what is going on?How can I make sure that Red Hat detects and assigns these ports correctly on boot, or at least can I reassign what ports are designated eth0-eth4?

Fedora :: Schedule A Process To Start At A Specific Time (not On Start Up)?

Jan 19, 2010

I'm trying to find how to schedule a process to start at a specific time (not on start up). How would I schedule a process/application to start at a specific time (if it matters, it will be a background process). For instance, have process abc start every weekday at 5am. I've done this for windows many times though have only been using linux regularly for a few months and haven't figured out the best way of doing this.

So far the best solution I have is to create a program that will start on boot and have it check the time and sleep until the required time and then start the required process(es) at the required time(s). But this seems more of a hack since I'd expect there to be a proper way of doing this.

Ubuntu :: Allow A Specific User To Mount Or Remount A Specific Partition?

Jun 9, 2010

my system I want user1 and only user1 to be able to mount and unmount a specific partition, this partition contains backups and is usually mounted read only, needs to be temporarily mounted read/write by user1 while doing the backup.user1 is an unprivileged user. I've read that the user option will let any user mount the file-system (and only that user can then subsequently unmount it) and that the users option allows any user to mount or unmount the file-system.I also found this in mount's man pageQuote:The owner option is similar to the user option, with the restriction that the user must be the owner of the special file. This may be useful e.g. for /dev/fd if a login script makes the console user owner of this device. The group option is similar, with the restriction that the user must be member of the group of the special file.So it looks like I'd need a login script for that user to make the user owner of the device file (/dev/voiceserv/backup in this case)

Server :: Sendmail: Block Specific Sender To Specific Recipient?

Oct 1, 2009

I'm trying to configure our mail server to block email from a specific sender reaching a specific recipient. In other words, if one of our employees is getting harassed by a 'stalker', how would one go about blocking, at the MTA (Sendmail) level, a specific sender email address from reaching a particular users inbox? We do not want to capture the email - simply block it before it consumes server resources.The Sendmail server (MTA) is a front end to our Exchange server so no user accounts exist on the Linux server. We simply use it as a SPAM and Virus scanner then forward clean email to the Exchange server.

Debian :: Assigning A Device At Boot To /video2

I'm using Debian kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64 I have this little nit picky problem when I re-boot, my webcam and my Tv card switch around on video0, video1 and video2 if my usb webcam is plugged in at boot. I would like to keep it plugged in all the time and have it on video2 and my TV card on video0 and video1. I had read where maybe setting up a udev rule might accomplish what I want to do I just don't understand how.

Here is my camera info from lsusb:
