Description d.e.baker 1999-09-05 04:50:03 UTC
I am running the traffic shaper which comes with RedHat 6.0 and it works great, except that if a windows 98 machine is being shaped, and that machine reboots while the host shaper route is defined, then the windows box will detect a conflict for the IP address. This then causes the windows machine to boot up with the network interface disabled. The machine doing the routing/shaping is a dual processor system running the smp kernel (of course). All linux software is out-of-the-box stock official RedHat, nothing re-compiled. The following are the commands to setup traffic shaping. Everything works OK until the last statement where the host route is added. After this point, the problem mentioned above occurrs. If that host route is deleted, then the problem goes away. /sbin/insmod shaper -o shaper0 /sbin/shapecfg attach shaper0 eth0 /sbin/shapecfg speed shaper0 20000 /sbin/ifconfig shaper0 192.168.110.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up /sbin/route add -host 192.168.110.222 dev shaper0 The address 192.168.110.1 is the IP address of the nic in the linux router, and 192.168.110.222 is the win pc being shaped. I am doing something wrong here, or is this a real bug with shaper?

Is this still a problem in 6.2?
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-02 13:56:50 UTC
Or in the pinstripe beta?

OK - no information to the contrary, I'll close this as "fixed for Red Hat 6.2"
