gated.conf, Does anyone have this puppy working on a linux box.

gated.conf, Does anyone have this puppy working on a linux box.

Post by Matthew Mart » Sat, 27 Aug 1994 21:33:49

 I am looking for anyone that has gotten gated to work on their linux box.  I
have had contact with many people that can't get it to work.

If I just put "interface passive ;" and run gdc checkconf I get a
parse error on interface.

If some kind souls could send me their gated.conf I could compare.  Maybe
someone out there knows that this is a dead horse, and can tell me to stop
wasting my time on it.

I have a slip interface I would get use to gateway two other machines, one mac
and one dos windows from my local ethernet segment.  

Any help would be great,

#  This configuration emulates routed.  It runs RIP and never turns
#  off an interface due to lack of input RIP data.
#NOTE that RIP *will not* run if UDP checksums are disabled in
#the kernel.

interfaces {                    
        interface all passive ;

1. Gated: Need help with gated.conf

I've been banging my head on gated.conf for two days now over what
should be a really simple setup.

What I want to do is to announce via RIP my ethernet subnet to a
router at the other end of a SLIP connection. Using the gated.conf
below, I can receive RIP updates from the remote router, but
no RIP packets are sent from my local gateway.

Here're the particulars:

gated r3_5alpha_7
My subnet: mask
My gateway: ethernet slip
Router: remote

My gated.conf:

rip yes
export proto rip interface
        proto direct
       mask metric 1;

Any advice would be much appreciated.
