1.2.8 & proxy arp problem

1.2.8 & proxy arp problem

Post by Brian Hartsfie » Sat, 06 May 1995 04:00:00

I just upgraded to kernel 1.2.8 and I cannot get my proxy arps to work.

When I type in arp -s <mac address> pub, I get an error
message of Protocol familty not supposred.

Also, if I type arpo -a, I do not see any ip numbers In the list that I
recognize.  I see ip numbers liks  Nothing over 100.

Can anybody shed some light as to what happened when I went from 1.1.93
to 1.2.8 and how can I fix it?>  i need proxy arp for my setup.



1. PPP & ARP Proxy problems

Well I've got as far as getting the Linux box logging in to my ISP via
PPP. Can run Netscape via a Win95 Xserver even, and Samba works too.

However, even though I've told my Win95 box that my Linux box is a
gateway, I can't access the web on the Win95 box (unless of course I
plug the modem into it directly, which spoils the point).

I do get some errors concering Proxy ARP in my message log:

Jan 11 12:52:45 hawk pppd[299]: pppd 2.3.3 started by root, uid 0
Jan 11 12:53:17 hawk pppd[299]: Serial connection established.
Jan 11 12:53:18 hawk pppd[299]: Using interface ppp0

proxy ARP
Jan 11 12:53:20 hawk pppd[299]: local  IP address
Jan 11 12:53:20 hawk pppd[299]: remote IP address

I've been through the Masquerade and PPP HOWTOs with no luck, and even
scoured the dejanews comp.os.linux archive. If someone can help me with
suggesting where I'm fouling things up, I'd appreciate it. I'll even
update the FAQ!
