Problems with network

Post by Kari Telaran » Mon, 17 Mar 1997 04:00:00

I try to build a network between 3 machines. (286/12, 486/120 and P90).
286: 3c501 etherlink card, DOS, IP
486: 3c501 etherlink card, Linux 2.0.28 (SlackWare), IP
P90: NE2000 clone (PnP disabled), Linux 2.0.27 (RedHat) and Win 95, IP

But any of these machines won't respond to PING or Telnet. I can grap P90's
packets on 486 and so (using tcpdump),
but if i try to PING P90 on 486, all packets will be lost + P90 prints te
following message (many times):
"eth0: bogus packet size=36928, status=0x21 nxpg=0xdd
 eth0: next frame inconsistency, 0xdd"
(this happens _only_ when i try to ping P90 on 486)
What could be wrong?

Get rid of the 3C501s. *Nobody* recommends using them any more. You can
get new NE2000 clones for $25 or less, or used 3C503, 3C507, SMC8013 and
SMC8216 cards for $10 or so. I picked up a SMC8216 Combo for $7.50 once.

You'll find things work *much* better.

1. Iproute2 problem across networks using NAT and 2 internal networks

Hi all,
Here's the deal. I have a machine that faces the internet and has an
internal network and a DMZ. I am using iproute to NAT an ip from
public to private.

ip route add nat via
ip rule add from nat

Everything works fine with the preceding route and rule when talking
to the machine from the internet. The problem is that when a machine
in the internal network, say, talks to the machine
in the DMZ, the replies get natted to, instead of replies with
the src address of The idea is to have these ip's not get
natted when going in between the DMZ and Internal Network. Thus, the
replies come from I toyed around with using multiple routing
tables but got nowhere. Please advise.

Internet -----|Firewall|---DMZ--- (NAT
           Internal Network

Internet to DMZ is working fine with NAT.
Internal Network, talking to, replies come from
I need replies to come from

TIA for any guidance.
