I am using my linux box as a gateway between the internet and a private
eth0 is the external device using the eexpress module and i/o:0x300 amd
It uses DHCP.
eth1 is the internal device also using the eexpress module and i/o:0x270
Its address is 192.168.0.9 and subnet is 255.255.255.0
I am using Redhat 6.2 (the 2.2.14 kernel).
The ineractive boot up shows both interfaces starting normally, however
the internal card does not ping itself, and it is not visible from the
machines on the internal network. When I ifup the eth1 device manually
I see the following errors:
SIOCSIFADDR: No buffer space available
SIOCSIFNETMASK: Cannot assign requested address
SIOCSIFBRDADDR: Cannot assign requested address
SIOCSADDRT: No such device
My /etc/conf.modules file looks like this:
alias eth0 eexpress
alias eth1 eexpress
options eexpress io=0x300,0x270 irq=5,11
I have been fiddling with this problem for a while now and I have
reached the end of my rope... any assistance/direction/ideas that anyone
has would be greatly appreciated... thanks.
