two nics with a dhcp server

two nics with a dhcp server

Hi all,

i have rh6.1 running two 3com cards, one is running a 10mb hub the other a
100mb.  I.m using dhcpd to give a ip address to all clients but i've run
into a couple of small problems.  All the work stations get the correct
address in the range. ie 10.0.0.10-100 for the 100mb and 10.0.10.10-100 for
the 10mb.  From a windows machine i can see all the machines in the network
but cannot access the shares until i do a search for the computer by ip
address NOT name,then i can access the shares!
Plz can someone help me i'm so frustrated now it  is unbearable.  I want a
work station to be able to get an ip address from the server and be able to
access the shares and under different workgroups on the network without
having to find a computer by ip address.  Many thanks in advance

Hi Jimbob,

   As Mark Twain (is credited to have) said.  "If you get angry:
count to four.  If you get really angry: swear!"

   First make sure you have the route daemon running.  (I wasted
about seven hours thinking it was running and it was not.   I could
repeat the man page heart and almost tore all my hair out).

         ps  ax | grep routed | grep -v grep

   "routed" is not installed in the rcx.d files by default.  I put mine in
rc3.d
and rc5.d as S12routed

   Second, make sure all of the M$ OS'es are using the same workgroup
name.

   Third, make sure you are running NetBIOS over TCP/IP and not NetBEUI
(NetBEUI does not route).  This is automatic on W9x when you install TCP/IP.
Get rig on NetBEUI and any IPX you find installed.

   You should also consider two modifications to your network:

1)  consider changing your IP address to "Off Internet" addresses.  These
are the addresses that Internic has set aside for non-internet user.  These
addresses
are 192.168.0...255.xxx.  If you never get on the internet, it does not
matter.  But if you every get a NAT or Masqueraded route to the Internet, it
will make life on you a lot easier.

2)  peer-to-peer networks are an abomination.  Consider moving all of your
shares to the Linux server (SAMBA, which runs on Linux, is a NetBIOS server).
Move your Print shares to Samba as well.  (If you have a printer mounted
on a client, have SAMBA mount it as a remote printer.)

Good luck,
--Tony

1. DHCP on server with two NICs

Hi!

Is it possible to run DHCP on server with two network cards. I am trying
to install for the first time DHCP on my network and I am planning to
install it on server with two NICs.

Acctualy I tried but I got these errors:

....initUserComm: bind usercomm socket failed - The socket name is not
available on this system.
....main: cannot create user communications socket. Exit

Is there any useful link or *.pdf about DHCP servers?

Regards!
