added LAN --dialup doesn't resolve anymore?


I have a Debian3.0 computer which I use with a dialup account to surf the 'net with. It has a PCI modem which works fine. Just for fun I added a netcard, and a crossover cable to allow me to share data and a printer with a win2k computer.

Dialup and the LAN worked together briefly, but now when my LAN is up, Firebird can't resolve websites, they just timeout. I have to manually take eth0 down to get the www to work.

And then I 'ifup eth0' to print or listen to mp3s.

Needless to say, I'd like to both browse the internet and listen to music at the same time, not to mention print stuff without having to save it locally first.

Thanks.

JP

Are you using firebird in Windows or Deb. You may want to check out your routing table
Lin: route
Win: route PRINT
But it sounds like you are trying to surf from Deb and listen your mp3s from a windows share. At first glance I would say it is a routing issue. When you dial up make sure your routing table is looking at the dialup connection before your ethernet connection.

Yes, I'm using Debian to surf, and trying to access the shares on win2k. Right now I'm using ppp. Here's my currnet route output:


Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
mrrlorcora1.lbn * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
default mrrlorcora1.lbn 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 ppp0

How do I make sure my routing table is looking at the dialup connection before your ethernet connection?

Do you mean that ppp0 has to appear before eth0 in ifconfig?

On a whim, I just typed:

ifconfig eth0 up

played an mp3 from the win2k, and tried a webpage, and it resolved!!?? It hasn't been doing that for awhile now.

here's output of my 'route':


Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
mrrlorcora1.lbn * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
default mrrlorcora1.lbn 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 ppp0


It has worked (both ppp and LAN) before, but I rebooted Deb for some reason and it didn't work after that. I think if have to reboot again, I can get it woking, but it seems like a pain in the butt to have to do this stuff...

thanks for your help,

JP

Just to let you know on the routing tables, the order of search is listed top to bottom.

If you have troubles you shouldn't require a reboot. If it truly is a route problem then you could probably concoct a script to set your routing table corrctly. Good luck.

My issue that causes me to rebbot is unrelated the routing thing--i think. Anyway sometimes if I forget to disconnect, and I leave pppd running for a while unattended my modem becomes unresponsive and doesn't give the line back to the phone.
plog shows an exit on my pppd session, but there is no dialtone when I pick up the phone. Maybe I could reset the serial port somehow...
