I have a small cluster (OSCAR, Fedora 8) and I was able to run some application software on it. Then lightning struck very close to the building. Fortunately I had unplugged all the power cables (because the cluster has not yet been moved to where the power lines are protected), but it seems that the institution didn't have any protection on their LAN cables, and so the whole building's public network cards are damaged. A costly lesson.
Anyway, when I tried to run the application software in parallel across the cluster (using the private network which is unscathed) I get the error message given in the subject line. I contacted the application software's help department as I thought I had perhaps forgotten to set something, but according to them it is a normal network problem.
Check the /etc/hosts file and make sure that the nodes all have a single definition and you don't have lines like
127.0.0.1 localhost normnode3
and that normnode3 has the same address both on the master and on the node. try ping normnode3 from the master and see what address comes back 64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.306 ms or is it 127.0.0.1. Then do the reverse. Also double check that you can ssh between nodes without password but I would expect a different error then. The command "hostname" returns gnlserv01, which is the public NIC.
After the lightning I had trouble getting the nodes to communicate "automatically" with each other, but it can be cured by starting the xinetd service and disabling the firewall on the master node (it's not too dangerous since I don't have a public interface at present and since I'm sitting behind the institution's firewall as well.) Just by the way, I would think that ther should be a file somewhere in which I could specify those two commands to take place when the master node is switched on. Could you perhaps enlighten me as to where and how I could specify it?
I was wondering whether I would need to explicitly start a bind-type service or something like that? (Since I had to explicitly start xinetd) I'm rather clueless really. I googled around and found that there is a named service, so I tried to start it, but I don't think it's installed on the computer. Therefore, since I have managed to run the application software in parallel previously, the named service is probably not the problem. Here is a copy of how my /etc/hosts file looks like:
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs # that require network functionality will fail. # These entries are managed by SIS, please don't modify them. 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
I have a few external IP's assigned to me by my ISP. I have IPcop as my router/firewall. I am wondering how to bind 1 of my external ip's to my internal ip address. So I do not have to port forward, etc. For Example, 184.108.40.206 to 192.168.1.123 and on the server it see's the external IP address.
I dont know for what reason, since 2 days, I started having this message whenever I try to start httpd.I commented "Listen 443", restarted httpd started correctly. I needed to comment "listen 443" in order to be able to start httpdWhat is strange is when I do
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80 no listening sockets available, shutting down. Unable to open logs
I am new to apache2 server i have been trying to start the server using the default httpd.conf file provided in the source code but when i give the following command sudo /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start i receive the above error and the server shuts down.
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.
i have a xeon machine with ubuntu os machine specification is 3gb RAM 3 scsi hard drives each 73gb it have two ethernet cards one ethernet card is connected with adsl modem and the second is connected with LAN. now what is mikrotik doing for me is control access to bind mac adress with ip adress and control the band width for induvisual conection.
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:220.127.116.11 P-t-P:18.104.22.168 Bcast:22.214.171.124 Mask:255.255.255.255 UP BROADCAST POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MTU:1500 Metric:1
The WAN IP of the interface is not really 126.96.36.199 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 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'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 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 an Ubuntu 10.04 server/router with IPv6 internet connectivity (I have an internet routable /64 subnet). Since I have this abundance of IPv6 addresses I wanted to try and assign v6 addresses to specific users on the local system. I've been looking at ip6tables with packet mangling but I don't seem to be able to find out how to do this or if this is even possible.
Current configuration: eth0: Local network, has the /64 IPv6 public range active and the IPv4 LAN range. tun0: 6in4 tunnel with a ISP assigned public v6 address. eth1: Standard IPv4 internet connection.
All users on my system use the v6 address configured on tun0. I want to force them to use the /64 range which is configured on eth0. If I can force users to use a specific v6 address, I'll configure more then one v6 address on this interface based on the users userID on the system.
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
I am having difficulties in establishing a vpn connection using vpnc (or NetworkManaager-vpnc).
As long as the openswan IPsec daemon is running, vpnc-helper quits with the error message
Failed to bind to 0.0.0.0:500: Address already in use [user@computer ...]# vpnc-helper --local--port 0
If I use NetworkManager-vpnc, then establishing the connection simply fails. Using the --local-port 0 option does not change anything.
If I stop the ipsec service (service ipsec stop) then establishing the connectiong works, both with NetworkManager-vpnc and the console tool, but apparently the network traffic is not routed via the VPN - in my case this means that I cannot access hosts within the vpn and stuff.
Funny thing is - on my notebook from where I connect via WLAN, everything works fine. With Fedora 13 everything works fine, too.
Does anybody have an idea how to enforce that the vpn connection is actually used?
I'm stumped here as it seems like after an update etho:0 has assigned itself 2 x IP Addresses. I don't understand how this happened or how to fix it so some help would be great as I cannot access cPanel while it's like this or my sub directories.Here is a print of ifconfig
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 am just trying to get SSH working between 2 local machines on OpensSuse 11.4 boxes. I have the SSHD daemon running, the firewall is configured to allow SSH to pass, and I am using SSH's password authentication. However, my machines cannot see each other. Anytime I try to SSH, I get "Could not resolve hostname<hostname>: Name or service not known."
Of course, that leads me to believe I need an entry in my /etc/hosts file. However, I use DHCP, and therefore have a dynamic IP address. Therefore, my hosts names will only be good until the next IP renewal. How in the world do I configure SSH with a DHCP assigned address?
Currently my OS is Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope Desktop OS and my web server is Apache2. I have a public address 60.x.y.z and my pc local address is 10.x.y.z. I have a web app in my Apache2 which currently run in localhost(10.x.y.z).
I would like to enable the web app so that it could be browse from outside. I know there maybe some port forwarding process and some commands involved in order to do that. But I have no idea on the steps to do that.
