eth0 and ppp dialup linuxconf misconfogured route
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
if U are configuring an eth0 device and make an
ppp dialup to an ISP you are unable to get
queries from the internet, because of the wrong route !
SuSE 6.1 YaST can handle this propperly !
Have a look at the knowledge base at www.SuSE.de search
keyword DUMMY !
there should be a dummy device
e.g. 192.168.0.99 Bcast:192.168.0.255 mask:255.255.255
192.168.0.99 bcast: 192.168.0.255 mask:255.255.255.0
127.0.0.1 mask 255.0.0.0
linuxconf permitts a netmask 255.255.255.255 for dummy0
and due this point i have not figured out how 2 set the
fuckin' route to:
myhost.mydomnin... 255.255.255.255 dummy0
loopback 255.0.0.0 lo
U can manage this only by editting /etc/sysconfig/network...
Do you have a solution 4 setting up an eth0 device *AND*
gettin propperly connected via dynamic ppp0 ?
I can't set a static route - the people at SuSE managed it !
I know, it's not really a "bug" rather a support question,.
but linuxconf should be able to handle this propperly...
YaST can do this !
Choose the "set default route" option for ppp. My own home
system had two ethernets and a ppp until recently, and it
worked fine this way. If that doesn't meet your need, you
need to explain more precisely what you are trying to do. As
far as I can tell from your explanation, there is nothing
different in what you are trying to do from what I know works
correctly if you simply have pppd set the default route, and
that option is given to you from within linuxconf. There is
no need to waste memory with the dummy device to do this.
Scratch that, tested wrong, fixing now...
Oops, typed previous reopen in wrong window...
This bug really is closed, sorry for the confusion...
