Debian 5.0 Network-Manager interfers with vnet0 bridging to eth0 for virt-manager


Hi i'm trying to install virt-manager , to run a couple of virtual machines, i created a virtual nic vnet0 and bridged it to my eth0, i have configured the /etc/network/interfaces file with proper static ip, but i beleive the network manager is renaming my nic to eth1 and causing all kinds of problems. I uninstalled network manager and now i can ping anywhere in the network, but not outside it. ie google.com

any ideas would helpful.

Sure it's not a resolving problem? Try pinging an outside IP.

yeah thats the weird part, i can't resolve names outside my network, i have checked both the resolv.conf file and the network/interface file, all looks good, i guess i will keep digging.

thx

What address is in resolv.conf ? is it the address of your broadband router ? or is it the IP address of your ISP's DNS server ?

just for grins clear resolve.conf and just enter 4.2.2.1 as your name server and see if it can browse the internet. . if so theres a problem with your dns servers. if it still can't browse then the issue is not with dns. one possibility eliminated.
