Question ?? Is assigning 192.168.0.1 to eth1 a bad thing?


Like I just asked..

Is it true that setting up 192.168.0.1 to a network card is a bad thing?.. If so what things occur because of it?

Okay I'm no guru by ANY means but I have my internal NIC on a Red Hat gateway box config'd as 192.168.0.1. It's reserved for private networks, and it allows me to restrict incoming/outgoing connections to my internal card. I don't know of any benefit to using one of the other reserved private IP ranges, but AFAIK it's common practice to assign an internal NIC to 192.168.0.1 when on a LAN.

On my LAN my housemate's NIC is set to 192.168.0.1 with a netmask of 255.255.255.0 (and mine is set to 192.168.0.2, with the same netmask, obviously) and nothing untowards has happened. 192.168.x.x is one of the ranges of IP addresses reserved specially for LAN networking (isn't 192.168.x.x part of the class C network) so there shouldn't be a problem. Why?

Question Never heard that one before

Where did you hear that from? I would like to know the logic for not being able to use 192.168.x.x. These IP's were reserved for private LAN's:

10.x.x.x

172.16.x.x

192.168.x.x

You CAN'T use these IPs to connect directly to the internet, if thats what they mean. You use these in your private network and then have a gateway to connect your computers on your LAN to the Internet. Hope this helps.

Unhappy

Naw.. Just something one of the instructors in the other class told me to do.. That I shouldn't use 1 and 0's because chances are they were reserved for broadcast addresses and such. I dunno.. :P .. I just wish I could figure out why my net is stalling all the time and why I always gotta kill the linuxconfig, control panel's ipconfig application and the internet all the time. I've been trying off and on for the past month and a half now.
