Cannot Assign Requested Address ?

Cannot Assign Requested Address ?

Post by Brian Ashto » Fri, 21 Jul 2000 04:00:00



I am using my linux box as a gateway between the internet and a private
network (192.168.0.0)

eth0 is the external device using the eexpress module and i/o:0x300 amd
irq:5.
It uses DHCP.

eth1 is the internal device also using the eexpress module and i/o:0x270
and irq:11
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.

 
 
 

1. sco_cpd: SIOCGIFADDR: Cannot assign requested address

Since resinstalling OSR5.0.4c over the weekend, my /uar/adm/syslog shows
the following errors:

May 26 09:21:28 ris sco_cpd: cpd: SIOCGIFADDR: Cannot assign requested address
May 27 09:21:29 ris sco_cpd: cpd: SIOCGIFADDR: Cannot assign requested address
May 28 09:21:31 ris sco_cpd: cpd: SIOCGIFADDR: Cannot assign requested address

They are also echoed to the console (tty01) and occur at 9:21 each day. A
check of crontab shows no processes being fired off then or shortly
before.

Any idea of what this error/warning/notice means and what, if anything, do
I need to do about it?

Thank you,
Lucky
