Ubuntu Networking :: Assign An IPv6 Address To Separate Users?
Apr 15, 2011
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 have been struggling to get FC15 to act as an IPv6 router for a while now, am sure I am missing something trivial.. The idea is that I have a ppp / adsl connection (this works fine), use the wireless card on my pc with hostapd and dhcpd to provide connections to other pcs (works fine), and radvd to delegate ipv6 addresses.
The issue seem to be that as soon as I turn on ipv6 forwarding (net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding =1), the ppp connection no longer gets an IPv6 address. This means the router cannot ping any ipv6 address outside my network.
If I disable ipv6 routing, my router gets an IPv6 address on its ppp connection, and can ping things such as ipv6.google.com just fine, however (of course) no packets are forwarded from my network and radvd complains that forwarding is disabled.
I have a networking problem with my computer. Under Windows, the computer can get both v4 and v6 address via DHCP. However, the same computer can only get v4 address under Ubuntu. Does anybody know how to solve this problem?
I have a problem with my ipv6 connection: although I can't get ipv6 address with DHCP, I can't use ipv6 network. I tried [URL], and the tortoise is static. I want to fix it out , so I use 'ifconfig' to see my network configuration:
Some people told me that the fisrt ipv6 address was wrong and unsuitable for ipv6 connecting. I tried /ect/init.d/networking restart but it didn't work. How can I use the second address as my ipv6 address and fix the problem out ? Now it seems there is not problem with the ip adress but the route. After watching some video, I suddenly could use ipv6. I did 'ifconfig' again and nothing was different. However, the result from the command 'ip -f inet6 route' changed: the last default route was gone and there was only one default route.
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 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'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 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:126.96.36.199 P-t-P:188.8.131.52 Bcast:184.108.40.206 Mask:255.255.255.255 UP BROADCAST POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MTU:1500 Metric:1
The WAN IP of the interface is not really 220.127.116.11 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.
When I do ifconfig than IPv6 address is appearing on an interface. However when I run the system-config-network and select to edit same interface than it shows the normal ip4 192.168.1.x address. Why is it like that? ipv4 at one place and ipv6 at other?
I've two WLAN AP's with both a different IPv6 subnet. When I change from one AP to the other, my IPv6 Global address stays valid and so is the default IPv6 gateway. After a while I get another Global address from the second AP's subnet and another default IPv6 gateway for the second subnet. Both have the same metric. IPv6 connectivity is broken now. When I disable wireless on the laptop and reenable it, it flushes all IP addresses and receives new ones and connectivity is restored. Does anyone know if this is normal behaviour or should it normaly flush all the addresses when changing network? It's a bit silly to have to disable/enable wireless all the time..
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 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 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 ..
But, when I restart the network service this IPv6 address is gone. How could I make it as a permanent IPv6 address( that should be edited or deleted when I want but not when I only restart the network)to my interface?
I added an init script numbered just before bind9 starts, which needs to see the ipv6 link-local address on eth0. Sometimes this address is not configured, yet. In all cases it eventually is configured.
I am unable to find any script that is configuring the ipv6 link-local address (which is in part based on the MAC address). Does anyone know if there is some script or program that is supposed to be doing this, or is it an internal kernel function?
One workaround I am considering is making this init script go into a loop around sleep 1 to keep checking for the ipv6 address. But I'm concerned this might cause some problems. Any suggestions? I don't want to let it move on to start bind9 until the configuration this script does (more ipv6 addresses) is done.
This is on Ubuntu 9.10 server (for which there is not a prefix choice).
I can reach other hosts by means of their global addresses by either the IP address or hostname (that has the global address). What I want to (also) do is have a hostname that references the IPv6 link local IP address (an AAAA record in DNS, or just the fe80::<whatever> address in /etc/hosts) and use that host name in commands to access that host. The problem is, an interface ID is needed when making such a reference.
It sure looks like the programs just pass the host name string on to the resolver library, which does not understand the significance of the '%' even though it could find and see that the name preceding the '%' is consistent with that being an IPv6 link local address (e.g. the logic could have been "split at first % and see if preceeding name is found as a link local address and accept that if so, or ignore the split otherwise" ... but it isn't). Is there a different syntax for this ... or was it overlooked in the design of programming around IPv6?I want to be able to address a host by its link local address, while still using a mnemonic instead of having to type the IPv6 address.
how to do a virtual interface under linux. I'm using for example eth0:1 so ifconfig eth0:1 192.168.0.20 netmask 255.255.255.0 for example.
However if i do eth0:1 hw ether 00:11:22:33:44:55 It changes eth0 as well. Where should i look into for creating a separate virtual interface that's simply bridged with one of the existing interfaces that has a separate ip and hw address that the os handles.
How do I assign IPv4 and IPv6 static addresses permanently in OpenSUSE 11.2? Currently I am only able to assign either IPv4 or IPv6 static address not both. I cannot find even the interfaces file(/etc/sysconfig/network/interfaces).
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 18.104.22.168: 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 used to play with gw6c ( a client for tunnel broker ) It works well with fedora9 , fedora 10, but not with leonidas. my rpm is gw6c-6.0-0.4.beta4.fc9.i386.rpm ( a little old!) when I tried to install i have got this: libcrypto.so.7 est ncessaire pou w6c-6.0-0.4.beta4.fc9.i386 I try to make a soft link to libcrypto.so.0.9.8k, but nothing; The question :-Is there a solution for that pb - did you know a better client for non native ipv6 connectivity?
