I've tried on a couple of Linux boxes to change the IP address and
subnet of a working machine and it doesn't seem to work ever.
I have two Linux boxes:
roamer: IP addr 192.168.0.1, netmask 255.255.255.0
linux: IP addr 192.168.0.15, netmask 255.255.255.0
I'm getting ready for a DSL installation, so I put a second ethernet
card in linux with an
IP addr of 220.127.116.11. This machine can now ping it's own
To test the network configuration, I used linuxconf (the one that comes
with rh6.2) to change the address of roamer to 18.104.22.168.
Now when I sit at roamer and try to ping itself at 22.214.171.124 it
works. If I try to ping 126.96.36.199 I get destination host
unreachable even though the two machines should be on the same subnet!
I've tried a couple of times to change the IP address of a running rh
6.2 box to a different subnet and it has failed every time, but a clean
install to the new address works.
Are there any known problems with linuxconf that prevent it from
changing IPs correctly and anyting that I should tweak manually
Thanks in advance
