problem with network interface
I have a ce (quad giga swift card) and an eri interface. I set them up using the ifconfig command (plumb and up). I get the correct info when I do ifconfig -a. Say I activate the eri0, ce0, and ce3 ports.
My problem is: I can connect rempotely to the Server only via one port!!!!!
For example when all three interfaces are up I can only connect with one...if I unplumb 2 and leave only one..then I can connect through this one...why is this happenind?!? any idea?
Have you snooped the network traffic ?
tnx for answering..
1) ifconfig -a:
# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=1000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 8232 index 1
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
ce0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2
inet 126.96.36.199 netmask ffffffc0 broadcast 188.8.131.52
ce3: flags=1000803<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 3
inet 184.108.40.206 netmask ffffffc0 broadcast 220.127.116.11
eri0: flags=1000803<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 4
inet 18.104.22.168 netmask ffffffc0 broadcast 22.214.171.124
2) I cannot telnet using the other 2 ports...I mean.if ce0 is there I can onlyuse ce0...if I remove ce0 then I can nly use ce3..if I remove ce3 also and keep only eri0 I can connect using eri0..
hope this helps.
What do you mean by "I cannot telnet using the other 2 ports." ?
I have been told that it is not possible to have two different ethernet interfaces on the same segment..is that true??
ce0 => 126.96.36.199
this is not possible..and it seems they are right...do u agree?
I definitely do not agree.
It is obviously possible to have many interfaces on the same network, and even recommended when high availability is needed.
Can you also show the netstat -rn?
And make sure that your network routing information is correct?
Also can you ping the interfaces?
There is absolutely no reason why you cant have 2 or more interfaces on the same network segment.
This means that not all required resources are available.
What does `dmesg`say?
I assume it is a driver problem.
What does `modinfo | grep CE`say?
