Ubuntu Networking :: Create A New Virtual Network Using A Subnet Of Public Range

Jan 27, 2010

There seems to be a lot written about virtual networking but I am not sure what approach to take in my situation. My local subnet has a public block of 128 addresses. I have a virtual host running on my machine. My machine has a static address and I'd need to assign one to the guest. I have edited the guest's interface file and assigned a public address to it's eth0. However the guest cannot ping out and I can't ping in.

By default the virtual machine manager creates a virtual network (virbr0) and assigned a private address range to it. I have tried to create a new virtual network using a subnet of my public range (/31) but the manager says the range must to a minimum of 16 addresses (/4). It doesn't look possible to achieve my aims using the virtual machine manager.

In the past I have used the procedure laid out here:[URL].. which is to manually create a bridge. I am not sure that is relevant for my 9.10. I think I would have to disable the network manager if I were to do that and I am not sure how to do that.

OpenSUSE Network :: OS 11.2 - Can't Get Outside Subnet

Feb 27, 2010

I have a machine running the 32-bit version of openSUSE 11.2 that can't seem to get outside the subnet (TCP/IP works properly inside the subnet). I've researched this problem, and I just can't seem to solve it.
The machine originally had 2 LAN cards in it. I failed to remove it before the install of openSUSE. One card was an old Network Everywhere, and the other was a 3Com 3c905c card. I decided to keep the 3com in, as I've good luck with this particular card when it comes to Linux. I've since removed the other, not only from the machine itself, but also from YaST ('Network Settings').

I can't see much in /var/logs. I've sifted through them several times. I don't see anything that really stands out. I've tried switching network control from ifup to network manager and back. That didn't seem to help. I've tried a static IP configuration and that doesn't seem to help either. I've also removed Avahi just to make sure my variables here are kept to a minimum (I don't use Avahi anyway, so it doesn't hurt).

The network is a subnet with a default gateway of (NAT). I have only 2 other PCs on this subnet - a Windows XP Pro machine, and a dual-booting laptop (XP / openSUSE 11.2). Both of them work fine. The gateway is a Linksys WRT54G router that I've flashed with DD-WRT (latest stable version). It handles DHCP for my small subnet. I have not made any changes to the network configuration / setup in a long, long time.

Step 1 : In Hyper-v Machine i have created two Virtual Ports.

Step 2 : Now for these two diff ports two ip address with different subnet mask(e.g and been assigned(and have checked using ifconfig).

Step 3 : In Host machine i have added one subnetmask for one machine next one for another machine,however i m not able to ping both the ports from either of the machines having static ip or having ip

Step 4 : If i add same subnet mask for both machine it is pinging properly between 2 machines.

OpenSUSE Network :: Enable JUMBO Frames On A Tiny Subnet For NFS To Work?

Sep 27, 2010

I was able to build a NFS server and a NFS client using OpenSuse 11.3 and connect them together using gigabit ethernet through a switch. These are the only 2 devices on this net (192.168.1.xx). I tried to set the MTU to 9000 and 9014 but learned that the Realtek 8169/8111 only support up to about 7200 MTU. So I inserted Intel NIC cards on both and set both to 9000. The system accepts this and I can ssh from one machine to the other. Both NFS client and server start w/o issue and the client mounts the device just fine. But when I try to copy a file on the NFS client from the local disk to the server, the client just hangs and I have to physically turn the machine off in order to get it to work. Both systems are using the stock software from the DVD (I didn't update either).

OpenSUSE Network :: Make Firewall Accept A Range Of Ports (say 8000:9000) Because Im Using Mpd ?

Mar 6, 2011

i have two questions and thought that anyone here could have the answers.first things first,i want to make firewall accept a range of ports (say 8000:9000) because im using mpd process manager to make some parallel processing, does anyone know the command that satisfy this?

the second thing is, when i open a range of ports like that, it would put my system at risk if some bad guys somehow identifies this range, is there is anything that solves that matter(i.e. makes the firewall monitor the packet, if its an mpd accept if not drop)

Networking :: VLAN With 2 Router And 2 Subnet - Is Device In Different Subnet Works

Jul 22, 2011

I have TWO L3 + router switch (say switch1 and switch2). I created VLAN100 with VLAN ID 100 in both the switches. I created router in Switch1. I created router in Switch2. Switch1 is connected with 1.x/24 PCs. PCs are configured with 1.1 gateway. Switch2 is connected with 2.x/24 PCs. PCs are configured with 2.1 gateway. Both Switch1 and switch2 are connected by a trunk to carry VLAN100 data.

1)I have few PCs of 1.x connected to say Switch1 Is it possible for PC with IP to ping PC with IP are the configuration required in both switches to make them communicate ? All the device in both the subnets should ping/communicate with each other.

2)Move PC ( to switch2. Move PC ( switch1.What will happen when PC(1.100) ping (2.100) and vice versa?What will happen when PC(say 1.80 in switch1) pings PC (say 1.100 in switch2) and vice versa? What will happen when PC(say 1.80 in switch1) pings PC (say 2.100 in switch1) and vice versa?

Networking :: Setting Up A Subnet On A Wireless Network?

Sep 13, 2010

I'm living at a friend's right now, and he's got a wireless access point in the house that I set my laptops wlan0 interface to route through the eth0 to my desktop. It's been working fine for internet sharing and internal networking ( ssh and ftp ) between the laptop and the desktop, but there's a problem with both subnets being able to communicate with each other, and I haven't been able to solve it with DNAT either.

The wireless access point is and has its own lan on of which my laptop is I setup the little subnet I created by routing with the laptop to and my desktop is With shorewall I can configure iptables to DNAT all of my ssh traffic destined to to, but the problem seems to occur when ssh on my desktop fails to connect rather than the DNAT failing.

Using iptraf I've seen that all of the routing does work properly, because I can see on the connection in iptraf that only the SYN packet is being sent from a 192.168.0.x address, there is no ACK packet sent back. I believe this is because in the connection dialog it always shows a 192.168.0.x ip as the source of the connection, but I don't have a route to from setup and I'm unsure of how to do so.

I'm pretty much in over my head because I don't know what is wrong, I thought it should work like this. Everything else from port configurations, to the configurations of the software itself seems fine so I don't think it's anything like that preventing a connection, but I can't think of what it would be aside from the lack of routing between each subnet.

Is there anyway to just add a route so that and can communicate with each other directly? I know there should be, I'm just not at all sure how it would be done.

Security :: OT - Unencrypted Protocols In The Local Subnet - Switched Network

Aug 27, 2009

I was having a discussion with someone who said that telnet, FTP, HTTP plain-text authentication in the local subnet is ok because it's a switched network. Also, that these protocols are not good over the net but in a local subnet they are just fine.

I know that someone can plug a hub in the network port and connect 2 (or more) PCs and see the packets. Also, heard about ettercap but haven't really delved into it. I know dsniff was written to prove the point that unencrypted protocols are bad. Would like to get opinion about unencrypted protocols over a switched networks.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Public Subnet Is Not Accessible From The Internal Network

Aug 6, 2010

I will try to explain a bit first about my network typology: I have one cent os 5.5 machine with 2 nics - external one 86.x.x.122 and internal one with 2 IPs: and 89.x.x.121. The ideea is that I have a public subnet (86.x.x.120/29) of IPs which are routable only through 86.x.x.122 so I have a webserver hosted on a different machine with the IP of 89.x.x.122 and GW 89.x.x.121 - everything works perfectly fine, except that I cannot access from the internal network / 24 the so called DMZ (roughly) - the 89.x.x.122.

What really makes me crazy is that I setup the IPtables rules correctly because I can access the webserver from the outside world but I cannot accessit from the internal network...

what I'm missing - why the cannot see the 89.x.x.122 machine... What IPtables rules should I add?

Software :: Gnuplot - Combining A Linear Range And Log-scale Range In The Same X-axis?

Apr 24, 2011

I want to plot a set of data in only one plot.The problem is that some points of the data should be better plotted in a linear scale (lets say 0 to 100,000) but there are other data points that, exceding the value 100,000, would be better plotted in a logarithmic scale, as they goes in the range 100,000 to 500,000,000. Let's say the data is:


0 100
10000 80
20000 75


Is there a way to plot all these points in the same plot in only one X-axis showing two different ranges in that axis: linear: 0-100,000 logarithmic: 100,000 - 1,000,000,000?The axis would be read, for example, as:

0 20k 40k 60k 80k 100k 1M 10M 100M 1G

(The abbreviations k-M-G are not the important point. Just shown for clarity)

Networking :: Determine How Many Subnets Are In A Network Range

Jan 12, 2010

I am trying to remember how to determine the number of subnets there are in a given subnet range. The example range is shown below:Quote: I did the binary conversions of the two addresses shown, the address that I got when comparing the two was the following:Quote: number of subnets I got from his was 63.Correct me if I am wrong, but is the number of subnets the difference between the number, in this case, the third octet and 255? If there is another, or correct, way of determining the number subnets what would it entail?

Programming :: Bash Script To Ping A Range Or Own IP-range?

Apr 11, 2011

I want to build a bash script, which can ping a range IP adresses which will be filled in by the admin. If there is no IP-adress filled in, then the script must ping the subnet where the system is logged on. So if my ip is, then the script must ping from till Or else, if there is given a beginning and ending ip it must ping that!

The first part of the bash script is to ping a given range (see below). But there is one problem, how can I tell the script to ping from $begin till $end, [..] is of course wrong! But what must be filled in there???

echo "Enter beginning IP-adres:"
read begin
echo "Enter ending IP-adres:"
read end
ping -c 1 $begin [..] $end

The second part is to find my own ip and ping the whole range.. How to do that? I only can find my own IP, but I cant ping the whole range,, how to do that?

ifconfig | grep 'inet addr:' | grep -v '' |
cut -d: -f2 | awk '{ print $1 }'

Ubuntu Networking :: Network Manager Tries To Connect To Out-of-range Networks

Jul 2, 2010

I have a problem with network manager. I use Ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell Latitude D530. I used to have the same problem with Ubuntu 9.10 before I upgraded. I typically connect to two wireless networks: HOME and WORK. Both networks are set to automatic connection mode. I am at work, I connect to the network WORK. At the end of the day, I just close the lid and go home. At home, I open the lid and have the following problem: network manager still displays the network WORK whereas it is clearly out-of-range and it automatically tries to connect to it. It does so until network manager asks if the password is correct.

If I want to connect to HOME, I have to tell network manager to do so. Then, I receive a notification that I am disconnected to WORK. Next morning, I go to work, and I have the same problem, network manager tries to automatically connect to HOME. What I would expect from network manager: when I am at home, NM automatically connects to HOME and does not display WORK, when I am at work, NM automatically connects to WORK and does not display HOME.

It looks like it's trying to connect but then asks for a password (even if allready given one) and if open just not finishing connecting and trying to connect to another network. Happends the same with wicd. Network card is working ok. Also with other computers. Drivers are installed correctly and power consumption management is off.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Range Of Less Than 3 Feet?

Dec 31, 2009

I thought I would drop a few findings relating to a strange problem I don't have the answer to.

I have installed both Ubuntu and now OpenSuse (alongside Windows XP) on a thinkpad T40. I own a linksys WRT54G2 wireless router.

Windows XP runs fine, and connection to the wireless network is fine everywhere in the house.

however the first time on Ubuntu and now on Opensuse 11.2, the laptop needs to be within 3 feet of the router in order to connect to the wireless network!

Strange thing is that the laptop can see the network from anywhere in the house (with a signal strength carying between 60 and 90%) - however impossible to connect.

Suse is running the ath5k driver for the internal network card.

Ubuntu Networking :: Network-Manager "Shared" Method Uses DHCP Range

Aug 30, 2010

I am setting up a gateway Ubuntu box and trying to do this the easiest way possible. Using Network Manager in LL 10.04 I have eth1 (usb) accessing the net and eth0 (wired) set up and working. eth1 has a static IP address of and the USB box has This works and I have no issues with eth0. In order to allow eth1 to "share" the connection I have gone toIPv4 and change the method to "Shared to this computer".

Network-Manager automatically starts a dhcp server and assigns ip's from the 10.x.x.x class of IP's. I want to change the assignable ip range to come from 192.168.1.x. I have figured out that it is set in the dnsmasq-base package as uninstalling this and using:

Quote: >sudo service network-manager restart shuts down the eth0 completely - no IP can be assigned! Reinstall dnsmasq-base and it assigns it back with a IP. (and all other PC's on the network are set to the 10.42.43.x range. Where is the dhcp range set?

Networking :: 2 Nics In Same Subnet?

Jan 8, 2010

I have 2 x PCs and a NAS. Both PCs have 2x NICS. PC connectivity to Internet is via an ADSL router. Current config: Thus far (by choice) I've used static IPs in the 192.168.168.x range for my internal network, connecting all PCs and NAS via a jumbo frame enabled gigabit switch. This has facilitated moving data between the PCs and the NAS at high-speed. As both PCs also required Internet access from time to time, both are also connected to the ADSL router using the 2nd NIC and using subnet 192.168.1.x. I'm sure some of you are shaking your heads by now, but it works well and has been entirely hassle free.

However, I've an app running on the NAS that I'm keen to get Internet connected also. As my existing network devices are not using DHCP I figured the simplest method would be to change my ADSL router configuration such that it is in the same 192.168.168.x subnet, change its DHCP server settings to serve IPs in the same subnet (but in a restricted range I know won't cause any conflicts with the static IPs) and problem solved. On changing the ADSL router confiruration with all machines already booted up and configured as described above, everything worked. All devices could see one another, and access the Internet. On later rebooting the system this no longer works

- Internet access is fine but PCs don't see one another or the NAS. If I disconnect the ADSL Router from the PCs then all devices see one another again.

- Does having 2x NICS on a single device each assigned unique IPs in the same subnet create an issue and can it be overcome? I'd like to overcome it because making one of my PCs the gateway forces me to have it on anytime another device needs access.

- If I'm forced to use Internet connection sharing with one PC on the network connected to the router, how do I best configure this?

- One of the things I need to retain is gigabit connectivity between the PCs and PCs and the NAS (currently achieved by 192.168.168.x subnet being linked via gigabit switch).

Networking :: Access IP From Outside Subnet

Dec 26, 2010

I am trying to make Apache web server, it's work but cannot be browsed outside my subnet.I am on huge LAN network, not sure how it works, know it have TL-SL2428WEB Smart Switches and probably some kind of DHCP, every user have maximum 64KB, just plug UTP cable, and I have static address on that subnet like: "" witch I know from Java NetworkInteface class or when I try to update IP on my Dynamic DNS account with ez-ipupdate, but my subnet is connected to Web with another IP like "my.isp.provider.ip" witch I get from and I check that is my Cable ISP provider web IP. It is possible that there is more subnet layers between these two IP.Problem occurs when I try to access to my web site from another computer. When I set dyndns host name to be or use localhost everything works fine from my computer, I can access my web site, Apache work, I can use ssh. To illustrate you it work like this: Go to DNS server, find my host name, get my "" and say "This is actually my localhost IP, no need to go on Web, lets loopback". But when I try from another computer even from my college's computer on same subnet it don't succeed. When host name is set on "my.isp.provider.ip" of course nothing works.

We, users of LAN, don't have access to our LAN nor we have admin. For example sometimes we stuck without net and we cannot even press reset button on switches or something like that, we have to wait for day to they, owner of LAN, order some professional to do that. It seems they are just user of Cable TV and IP, and they bay and install LAN without any kind of admin. Also, I use Fedora 13, with httpd, ssh and others packages that comes with Fedora 13 DVD. I know to write bash scripts, use yum, very good in C++ and Java, great programmer, but newbie in networking, , a very little Perl, html, web servers, I heard for DHCP, DNS, NAT, IP forwarding. How you see it is problem in my lack of knowledge about networking. I hope that I succeed to describe by problem with enough details. Please, try to help me. I be very graceful for any kind of help. Don't afraid to bomb my head with any kind of information hard to understand.
