Network Setup ????


I've been given the following info for a new server, and am getting confused as to what I've been given by ur network people and what to plug into the netconf file...

Been given:
IP: 155.90.17.101
Subnet: 155.90.17.96
Netmask: 255.255.255.224
Gateway: 155.90.17.97

How does this relate to:
BROADCAST_ADDRESS ??
ROUTE_GATEWAY ??

Re: Network Setup ????

Your /etc/rc.config.d/netconf can have the following entries.

INTERFACE_NAME[0]=lan0
IP_ADDRESS[0]=155.90.17.101
SUBNET_MASK[0]=255.255.255.224
# BROADCAST_ADDRESS=""
INTERFACE_STATE[0]=up
DHCP_ENABLE[0]=0

You dont have to define BROADCAST_ADDRESS. It will be automatically be calculated.

I believe 155.90.17.97 is the default gateway for your new server

ROUTE_DESTINATION[0]=default
ROUTE_MASK[0]=""
ROUTE_GATEWAY[0]=155.90.17.97
ROUTE_COUNT[0]=1
ROUTE_ARGS[0]="

Re: Network Setup ????

Hi Mike,

You might want to either use SAM->Networking->Network Interfaces or use "set_parms ip_address" to configure the network.

Either of these tools will prompt you for the information you've been given and make the appropriate changes to the netconf file.

Re: Network Setup ????

You dont need a broadcast address on a typical DNS configured host.

My broadcast is blank....

You will most likely need the ROUTE_GATEWAY... it will be the name of the gateway for your host's domain...

Hi,

You don't need to worry about BROADCAST_ADDRESS. Just leave it blank there. System will automatically configure the interface with the correct broadcast. In case if you are interested, it will come to 155.90.17.127

ROUTE_GATEWAY will be 155.90.17.97. Use the same netmask.

Re: Network Setup ????


It should be noted that IF your host is the Gateway your ROUTE_COUNT will = 0, if you have an external gateway, ROUTE_COUNT=1

Re: Network Setup ????

If you are not familiar with networking, try to use a shell script /etc/set_parms

/etc/set_parms ip_address

/etc/set_parms addl_netwrk

BTW. You don't need to set broadcast address.
It will be automatically set to default value.
