I found multiple sites explaining how to add IPs to a network interface as virtual interface like eth0:0. However I can add IPs to an interface as well using the ip command: ip a a 192.168.2.2/24 dev eth0 What I want to know is how I can make this persistent on rhel/centos.
Last night while setting up wired & wireless connection in openSuse 11.2 Gnome version via YAST's ifup, I got wireless but lost wired connection (interface eth0). Dmesg shows that eth0 became eth1. I cannot get eth0 back. Is there any way to remedy this situation, eg. get info from the Ubuntu partition in my triple-boot laptop, without having to re-install openSUSE?
I have openSUSE 11.2 installed and i need to create a gateway server that allows virtual private network connections. I want to play with my friends some lan games, but we are in different networks, so i want to create this gateway server so we can connect with VPN clients to this server and play freely.
I've not found how to configure more than one ip address with network manager.Nor with kde nor with plasmoid network manager.I need several virtual ip addresses for eth0 when the "default" of eth0 is connected i.e. "Connected to Auto eth0" should initialize the virtual interfaces.I have not found no even how to configure the ip address.I think this will be used from ifup config in yast or not?There I have the virtual interfaces but they are not taken from network manager.And last but no least: Is it possible that when using network manager the eth0 is enabled even no user has logged in?
while trying to set up Xen Virtual Nodes we encountered one issue with the network (which is why it is posted here On the DomU the interface is provided by a bonding -bond0- of three NICS. Now the Xen network script a) does not take this bonding b) destroyes even this bonding From a number of posts I assume I have to configure this by hand, correct? Is there an instruction how to do this? Simply create a bridge on top of bond0??
I just intalled OpenSuse 11.2 on VmWare Server 2.0.2, the network is configured as Bridged and is sucefully configured a fixed IP in my network. Ok... The problem is... I can ping / trace all addresses from OpenSuse console. But I Can't wget all of them... It's a random thing. the same address that trace's ok, don't work for HTTP.
Recently loaded 11.3 onto a virtual machine, however none of the network settings will allow me to connect to the internet. First time Ive had this happen, other distro's Ive experimented with connected with no problems. I recall seeing a similar topic some time ago (dont remember if it was here or another forum), but at the time, there had been no fix. Anyone know if this has been fixed?
running 9.10 server, have SSH access through LAN, but I'd like to move box out of my neighbor's (shared internet & the router's in his place) and into my own space. Would have done so already, but I can't get the wireless working. Details below:lshw -C network gives:
I'm a newbie on Linux and trying to find my feet so please be kind.I have installed vmware on my XP laptop and have installed fedora core 9. Network setting on the VMware is set to bridged. My interface eth0 which is using the wireless does not start on boot. I have to run ifup ifcfg-eth0.The file ifcfg-eth0 had onboot=yes and NM=no, so i changed it so that the NM=yes.However this does not resolve the problem at all. I have put the file back to its original configuration and I have disabled network manager and have had no luck
I am using an Acer Aspire 5536 AMD dual core laptop with a 64bit installation of Susie 11.4. Using 11.2 I had no problems connecting to the wireless router. As soon as 11.4 was installed, clean install, and the laptop rebooted, network manager failed to start, until manually invoked and then enabling networking through the system tray. Even after this it will not connect to a wired or wireless network sometimes for more than 30 minutes.
I have just installed debian-live-8.3.0-i386-lxde on my old hp530 32-bit laptop
Everything went well but every time I start my laptop I get following message which lasts for approx 1m 20s ...
Code: Select allLoading, please wait... fsck from util-linux 2.25.2 fsck error 2 (No such file or directory) while executing fsck.ext4 for /dev/sda1 fsck exited with status code 8 [¬† 13.941532] systemd-fsck: DEBIAN8: clean,140919/640848 files, 978992/2560942 blocks [ ***]A start job is running for LSB: Raise network interfaces.

... then it boots OK into operating system. so apart from the delay everything is working ok.
I have just installed opensuse 11.3. I am absolutely new for Linux and for this forum. I have tried to open Network manager to configure my wlan. But its not starting. How to start network manager and configuring my wlan.
I tried connect to internet through iPhone (bluetooth tether), so I followed one tutorial... It said I have to change "networkmanager" to "ifup" in yast>network settings, and make some other changes... I did it, but I couldn't connect via iphone... OK... I put back all changes, also changed ifpu to networkmanager.
After reboot, Knetowrkmanager gives me "network management disabled" on startup, instead of list of my networks.
Of course, I google for solution, but without any luck. And then, I don't know why, I killed Knetworkmanager, start it again, and.. it worked!
But now, I have to kill it, and start again always, when I reboot my laptop...(HP Compaq 6720s, BCM4312, KDE 4.3.4)
I'm having difficulty setting up my desired network infrastructure. Here's the situation:
I'm currently using an Ubuntu box as homeserver to do everything from sharing internet (via NAT), over DHCP & DNS to filesharing and even virtualisation.
However, since my machine is capable of virtualising Astaro Security Gateway properly, I would like to transfer and split up responsibilities.
I want to have my Astaro fully responsible for the internet and act as the gateway, and along with that disconnect my physical box from the internet and put it behind Astaro (basically making it just a member of the internal network).
The difficulty I'm having with this is that Astaro is running virtually on the physical box, and I can't seem to figure out how to configure the external interface. It needs to be up for Astaro to be able to use it, but it should not give the physical machine access to the external network.
I'm thinking I could set it to manual and not give it an ip address, but I'm not sure on this.
I am totally new to Linux and have just installed ubuntu 10.10. After configuring the network interface via dhcp I started getting these messages that come in so frequently I can't configure anything else.
Why I am getting this messages and more importantly how do I get rid of them.
today I tried to configure a network route to a host for testing my network interface. Code: route add 192.168.1.15 eth0 As I have to eth interfaces and both interface got their IP from DHCP (192.168.1.11 and 192.168.1.12) and are in the same subnet, I shut the other interface down:
Code: ifconfig eth1 down Then I tried to test the interface by doing a ping to 192.168.1.15. Problem: When I unplug the cable from eth0 (and eth1 is still plugged) the ping still works. Somehow my linux (it's debian) powers up again eth0 and pings over this port.
How can I stop my linux doing this. I just want to have the route added only on the one interface - not the other. Is it maybe some case of a default-gateway?
Config: Squeeze, 2.6.32-5-amd64I just installed squeeze and the network is up and nm-manager deamon if working but the Gnome applet doesn't seem to work as usual. It indicates no network although the network is available as indicated by ifconfig and route below. When I switch WiFi on, the nm works flawlessly. When I click on the applet icon it says "Wired Network: device not supported" (or similar, msg in french is
I have a laptop connected to the the net thru an adsl modem, when I switch off the laptop network interface,(thru system-config-network) the light of the laptop network card plugged in the router stays on ( green) where as in my pc, when i do the same thing , the light of my pc network card goes off in the modem
Having made the transition from a certain widely used operating system to linux, suse 11.2, x64, successfully and pleasantly we are still left with a few problems.One of these is a few applications i have to use which run only in that old OS. ?To that end I have installed VirtualBox and got them to run with one glitch. I cannot print from VBox to my HP LaserJet 4000, lpt1 printer, which works fine in suse. Searching and posting on the Vbox forums turned up that lpt1 is not supported in the current vbox and that I need to set up a virtual network, set up the printer as a network printer and set it up as an lpd/lpr printer in Vbox WinXP. Have tried many different ways to do this without success, I think the problem is I do not know how to set up a network printer in Linux.
The virtual network is vboxnet0, which does show up in ifconfig, along with my eth0 net, and I can ping the windows guest, gateway and the host from either side host:suse/guest:winXP) respectively. Have tried numerous ways of setting up printer in YaST which works in suse but still does not work from WinXP guest. Have read the suse manual and several sources and searched forums with no results.Finally I am thinking I just don't know how to set up a network printer in linux. Using cups, kde, suse 11.2, don't know what else to tell. Samba is installed, although I am not using it to the best of my knowledge.
how can I go about adding an additional lo interface, like lo:0? I need to create this interface, give it an IP and set it to not arp, so this box can be behind a load balancer. Just copying ifcfg-lo and changing the requisite attributes did not work, got an error saying "Interface lo:0 is not available".
I have a server that is on both a standard network and a virtual network, as follows: server1 attached to standard network server1 acting as Dom0 with two linux DomU guests (under Xen) I only have one network card. How do I configure server1 to have a different hostname on the standard network than on the virtual network? Here are the relevant network configuration files for server1:
I downloaded Debian Stable last night, and everything appear to go smoothly. Today, I booted up the new OS to try it out for the first time. As I was exploring a few of the features, I decided to pull up a web browser. No internet connection.
No big deal, I thought, as I searched around for a way to connect wirelessly. I couldn't find a way to do so. I consulted one of my more Linux savvy friends, who advised me to pull up the terminal and enter a command to start the network-manager. According to the terminal, no such file currently exists on my system.
This is a bit of a conundrum for me, since I am on my university campus with no ethernet cord to attempt a direct connection. Is there any way to get the network-manager onto my computer? Also, did I mess up somewhere in the installation, or did someone not package the file with CD1 for some unknown reason?
There is a cable plugged in to the second network card, but that interface is not configured. I'm getting a lotof "martian source" alerts because of this.If the interface eth1 isn't started because it isn't configured, why am I getting these messages?
I have 2 laptop with opensuse 11.2. One of them is connected to the Internet through a Mobile Connection with a CDMA/EDVO modem on the usb port. I want to share the Internet connection with the other laptop through the WiFi interface of each of them. How should I proceed?
