IP problems with CSU/DSU card in Linux 1.2.13 system

IP problems with CSU/DSU card in Linux 1.2.13 system

Post by Edward Hooper » Fri, 25 Oct 1996 04:00:00

I have a Linux box (kernel 1.2.13) that is my: mail host, news host, web
server, ftp server, etc.  I'm using a SDL N2csu card to connect to the
internet (through BBN Planet) and a 3C509 to talk to my net.  The N2csu is my
router hardware and CSU/DSU, while Linux is my router software.  Everything
works *except* that when I try to send news articles out, using nntpsend, I
get this message from my news provider:

  502 You have no permission to talk.  Goodbye.

According to my news provider (BBN Planet) I am sending the IP address of the
router (the CSU/DSU card) instead of the IP address for the news host (the
same IP address of the 3Com card).  How do I get nntpsend to use the right
IP address?  Or is the problem more basic than that?  A tech at BBN said that
I need to change my filter table on my router, but since the router is the PC
running Linux I need to change it there.  But I can't find documentation about
filter tables.  And a tech from SDL (the board manuf) mentioned something
about gated and routed.

Am I the only person on the planet using a Linux PC as router and host?

Thank you,

1. strange problems 1.2.13 --> 2.0.0 --> 1.2.13


I have some strange problems with the new kernel source tree...

after the installation of the new sysvinit-2.62 the linux-2.0.0 kernel
complains sh:/bin/bash cannot execute...
with 1.99.7 this works fine
and at least I'm totally unable to recompile the 1.2.13 source tree due
some strange asm errors in main occurring in asm/io.h referenced by
bugs.h  (also within the asm tree). Of course I checked the appropriate
links to for the linux source tree /usr/include/linux

Please help....
