Just caught a problem while setting up leased line. Setup:
"intranet" - Linux 2.0.29 - 4W LL - Cisco 2511 - Internet
RIP & RIP-2 gated OSPF
So I am about to setup gated to translate routing data between RIP and
Symptom: cannot get gated (gated version R3_5Beta_1 built Sun Dec 17
19:47:11 CST 1995) to see OSPF packets from cisco. When I turn on
firewall I can see bouncing OSPF (18.104.22.168) packets. When I accept
them, I apparently can't see them in gated trace file.
Another thing I could not get working is slattach. I saw no incoming
packets so I moved to DIP to run leased line. I am running `ifconfig
sl0 multicast` manually after dip. Are these symptoms related to each
My hypotheses right now are:
1. I am _STUPID_
2. Kernel does not support multicasting on SLIP interfaces
3. Interface running with DIP does not catch multicast packets
4. My gated is missing somewhat in config
Which one should I keep :) ? Any experience with similar setups would
be of great value for me. Thanks for your time.
[Please reply also by email, because I have poor newsfeed. And I'm so
sorry for my horrible English.]
