Problems setting up Local LAN

Problems setting up Local LAN

Post by Tze-John Tan » Mon, 05 May 1997 04:00:00



Hello,

I currently only have 1 machine, but I plan to purchase another one.  I
have setup my linux machine with 2 ethernet cards.  My problem is in
setting up the print server device.  The ethernet address on the server
is printed as 00:80:72:03:6:5C  I took the 6 to mean 06.  So I used arp
to set up the ethernet to IP mapping, but I can't seem to ping the print
server.  I am not usre If I have set up my LAN wrong, or the ethernet
address of the print server is wrong.

My machine's interfaces are:

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Bcast:127.255.255.255  Mask:255.0.0.0
          UP BROADCAST LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:3584  Metric:1
          RX packets:433 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
          TX packets:433 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0

eth0      Link encap:10Mbps Ethernet  HWaddr 00:00:B4:35:50:06
          inet addr:198.80.71.66  Bcast:198.80.71.95
Mask:255.255.255.224
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:21178 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
          TX packets:16269 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0x240

eth1      Link encap:10Mbps Ethernet  HWaddr 00:40:F6:14:08:43
          inet addr:192.168.2.1  Bcast:192.168.2.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:123 dropped:0 overruns:0
          TX packets:25 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
          Interrupt:7 Base address:0xe400

My routing table is:

198.80.71.64    *               255.255.255.224 U     0      0       11
eth0
192.168.2.0     *               255.255.255.0   U     0      0        1
eth1
127.0.0.0       *               255.0.0.0       U     0      0        5
lo
default         198.80.71.65    0.0.0.0         UG    0      0       27
eth0

eth0 is my connection to the internet, whil eth1 is internal.
When the print server is on, I get these errors on my eth1 interface:

May  4 15:35:48 orion kernel: eth1: bogus packet size: 0, status=0x0
nxpg=0x40.
May  4 15:35:48 orion kernel: eth1: next frame inconsistency, 0x40

These occur about once a minute.  I think the print server is
broadcasting something out, which is causing this.

Am I doing something wrong in my network setup?  And is there someway to
find out the ethernet address of something through the network?

Thanks.

1. Did setup Linux, but having problems setting up Local Email between local users

I have a system on
which Linux has just been installed, but not
connected to anything for now, all I want is for
the various local users, to be able to send mail to
each other, I tested it and the mail never actually
gets delivered to the other local account ?  The
book I have said something about using Smail for
the configuration, but I could not find it.

Thanks a lot for any help in advance.
