Post by Alexander Gingelmaie » Sat, 30 Oct 1999 04:00:00



when i like to activate ip-forwarding with following:

echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

suse 6.2 does not find the path /proc/sys doesnt exists.

i installed all modules containing "firewall" or "forwarding".


thanks.

Hi Alexander,

Are you using a kernel delivered on the CDs or did you compile your own
and forgot to enable support for the proc-filesystem?

Quote:> i installed all modules containing "firewall" or "forwarding".

All modules are packaged within a single RPM! So did you delete delete
some modules?

Check if /proc is mounted, with the "mount" command.

If it isn't, use "mount /proc". You may have to put the line
"none    /proc      proc   defaults   0   0"  in your /etc/fstab first.

If this doesn't work, recompile the kernel with proc FS support, or use a
kernel from the installation CD.

There is no reason to not use the proc filesystem.

Better try to set
IP_FORWARD=yes
in /etc/rc.config.
Then you execute SuSEconfig
Then you restart net services typing init 2

once he'd done that, he'd be better off rebooting it instead of tyoing init
2 your your case, but why doesn't he just bring the netwokring side down by
using the netwokring script in /etc/rc.d/netowrk stop then network start.
that way it's much cleaner and better than re-booting or changing init
levels

1. DNS on SUSE 6.2 fails, on SUSE 5.3 works

DNS works fine but some adresses are "not found" under SUSE 6.2; they are
found under 5.3!

mainly IP-adresses where the alias is pinged and
mainly IP-adresses where the nslookup reported "none autorative"

are "not found" with a ping under SUSE 6.2 but found and pinged under 5.3.

Can anybody give me advice, how to configure my SUSE 6.2 boxes?

thanks for reading and thinking about it

Michael
