Thanks to the people who e-mailed me.
A short summary: ignore HJ's docs. They explicitly say that lib4.4 needs
pl10 or higher; but you dont need pl10 or higher to use lib4.4.1.
I installed lib 4.4.1 under pl9, then installed gcc 2.4.5 and recompiled
Now moving along:
I thought NET-2 was supposed to *fix* Linux networking?
I got all the net-2 binaries, etc; read the FAQ, and installed it.
I was pleased..briefly..and then the networking began to crumble.
(I am hardly a newbie at setting up TCP/IP stuff).
BTW, dont E-mail if you want me to see this. Net-2 broke our e-mail
(works randomly now, if at all).
I can ifconfig ok.
routing: net-2 seems to drop routes, or something. I have to add
route add default gw 220.127.116.11, otherwise nothing gets out of our
subnet. I do that in the rc files, but periodically routing just
disapears. ie, I can no longer ping different sites.
I am very suspicious of net-2 routing. Now what does this mean:
(output of netstat -r)
fs0.ee.ubc.ca router UGHDM 0 2 eth0
now netstat -nr
18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 UGHDM 0 2 eth0
Why is this following the default route when the host (fs0) is on the
same subnet as I am (126.96.36.199, netmask 255.255.255.0) Is the output
of netstat wrong?
the net-2 package didnt have mail in it, so I tried to change inetd.conf
like what I had under net-1. I use smail to handle mail; invoked as
smtp stream tcp nowait root /usr/etc/tcpd /usr/bin/smtpd
When I first start up, mail seems to work. LAter, it dies. I cant
telnet 127.0.0.1 25 and get the smtp daemon.
After a while (we get mail all the time) I have a dozen smptpd process
running, and netstat shows all the hosts trying to send mail. here
is the netstat output, showing weird mail. Is this an smtpd problem?)

Also, incoming finger, telnet, shell, finger etc. all seem to work randomly.
(I cant believe net-1 was actually more reliable here)
Outgoing telnet, rlogin, ftp and NNTP etc. seem to work (unless the routing
disappears; then I have to re-add the route). On a positive note,
ftp seems much faster. Is there something wrong with inetd???
It's not a matter of it not working at all; but incoming telnets
finger, ftp etc. work one moment and not at the next.
I followed the FAQ, and used the provided net-010 config files to
try to get the network working. But the FAQ is wrong in places:
route add 188.8.131.52 ( ie $NETWORK ) (the same if i do loopback)
and I get
SIOCADDRT: Network unreachable.
This is probably just a mistake in the docs.
thanks in advance. I have a few weeks of the NET channel activists
mailings...maybe there is something in there...
