network card


I am using 2 network cards for doing proxy server. eth0 is dhcp, but eth1 is static. I use the ifconfig eth1 10.0.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 command and it apply's the settings. But after I reboot it loses its settings. any ideas?

Go to the folder /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts (that's on my Redhat 9), and you'll see stuff called ifcfg-*. Create a file called ifcfg-eth1, and examine the file ifcfg-eth0 to figure what should go in. Something for you would be like

DEVICE=eth1
BOOTPROTO=none #i don't know what this is but its in mine
BROADCAST= #not sure for you, probably 10.0.0.255
IPADDR=10.0.0.1
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=10.0.0.0
ONBOOT=yes
USERCTL=no #not sure what this is
PEERDNS=no #not sure about this either
TYPE=Ethernet

save the file, and bootup will load it

bootproto determines whether or not it is DHCP (or bootpc if you really want)

Slackware does not have a /etc/sysconfig folder. Either that or I didnt install it(a major possibility).

In Slackware the file is /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.

ok I edited the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1, saved and rebooted:

#! /bin/sh
# /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1
# This script starts up the base networking system.
#
# Version:
# @(#)/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 8.1 Tue May 28 15:27:39 PDT 2002 (pjv)

# Edit these values to set up your first Ethernet card (eth0):
IPADDR="127.0.0.1" # REPLACE with YOUR IP address!
NETMASK="255.255.255.0" # REPLACE with YOUR netmask!
# Or, uncomment the following lines to set up eth0 using DHCP:
USE_DHCP=yes
# If your provider requires a DHCP hostname, uncomment and edit below:
#DHCP_HOSTNAME="CCHOSTNUM-A"

# Edit these values to set up your second Ethernet card (eth1),
# if you have one. Otherwise leave it configured to 127.0.0.1,
# or comment it out, and it will be ignored at boot.
IPADDR2="10.0.0.1" # REPLACE with YOUR IP address!
NETMASK2="255.255.255.0" # REPLACE with YOUR netmask!
# Or, uncomment the following lines to set up eth1 using DHCP:
#USE_DHCP2=yes
# If your provider requires a DHCP hostname, uncomment and edit below:
#DHCP_HOSTNAME2="CCHOSTNUM-A"

# Edit the next line to point to your gateway:
GATEWAY="" # REPLACE with YOUR gateway!



But still when I type: ifconfig eth1 I get:

root@jamey:~# ifconfig eth1
eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:C0:26:7D:5A:E4
BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt:10 Base address:0xd000

no 10.0.0.1 address assigned.

ok I came up with a temporary fix.

In the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file I just added the ifconfig eth1 10.0.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0

it works. Yay

i think if you want it to do DHCP on boot, you should comment out the two previous lines, with the IP address and netmask. I think that should do it, as it looks as if it was still not touching the card, and my only guess is that it was ignoring it because "address" was set to 127.0.0.1.

ps if that doesn't work, try changing the address to something else, like 10.0.0.2 so you get:

# Edit these values to set up your first Ethernet card (eth0):
IPADDR="10.0.0.1" # REPLACE with YOUR IP address!
NETMASK="255.255.255.0" # REPLACE with YOUR netmask!
# Or, uncomment the following lines to set up eth0 using DHCP:
USE_DHCP=yes
# If your provider requires a DHCP hostname, uncomment and edit below:
#DHCP_HOSTNAME="CCHOSTNUM-A"

in fact, if you commented out the DHCP line, i think that should do the trick statically.
