Broadcasting with multiple network interfaces



  • 1. do ypcall issue with nis servers
    Hi, I have got 2 strange issue in my NIS production environment. since 2 months my environment worked fine. but last 15 days i am frequently getting problems. 1. In the first problem in NIS master server would not allow any NIS user for 10 to 15 min after some time it will resolve automatically. By that time NIS users will logis will continue (because i have NIS slave also ) but i am not sure it logins from the slave or not. But only NIS master users cannot login. I am not understanding why it is behaving like this after working past 2 monts since why it happens. 2. My production NIS servers is getting error for every 1 week or 10 days like that irregularly. By that time NIS won't allow any NIS user logins. By that time i am restarting ypserv service. I am not understanding what is happen irregular problems. do ypcall Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused. My environment is I have NIS Master, Slave , application servers working on Redhat Advanced server 2.1. ypbind 1.12 If any info need revert the mail. awaiting for response Regards Chandra Sekhar N

With two interfaces ethernet and ppp. I would like to broadcast to ethernet 
interface when ppp is configured as my default gateway. Does any one know 
how to do this?
Help appreciated. Thanks NR

Basically, you would need cooperative routing deamons or services on this
box and any other boxes or routers that you expect to use this box as a
dynamic gateway.  Do a google search for "linux dynamic routing".

1.single interface multiple networks + broadcast to all networks


I have a machine which is in one network say 
But we have here a configuration where two networks
and are local and directly available. 
So I had to set up two routes to the local networks.
Now this machine should be a cups-server to both networks 
and broadcast his cups-information into both networks. 
I seems that I can sent only broadcast-packets  to the network 
where the host belongs.
Is it so uncommon to sent broadcast into the other network?
Or must be the source of a broadcast packet originate in the same network?
Do I have to enable something under /proc/sys/net/...
Or is just cups broken? 


2.Virtual network interface to multiple interfaces?


I have a VPN (tun0) that operates over my Internet connection (fxp0). 
I'm using PF and HFSC to manage traffic (5.3 Beta 3), and it works well, 
until I try to introduce the VPN in to the rules.

The problem is, I need to be able to prioritize traffic accross both 
interfaces, not just fxp0. It isn't sufficient to just treat all VPN 
traffic as a single stream, I need to be able to manage individual 
protocols within the VPN and data sent directly to the Internet.

It would seem the simplest solution is to create a virtual interface 
where both data to and from fxp0 and tun0 can be treated as a single 
interface. The VPN carries handles a different subnet from the LAN, so 
distinguishing between them in the rulesets should be quite simple.

Any suggestions welcome.

4.hostname for a system with multiple network interfaces


I have a system with two ethernet interfaces with each ethernet
interface on an arbitrary network. When I give hostname command at my
command prompt what hostname should I expect? Is it possible for
hostname to returns multiple hostnames?

5.Question about multiple network interfaces.

Hi. I have some questions regarding multiple network interfaces an a
Solaris x86 box.

I have 2 network interfaces bge0 and e1000g0. One faces the outside
world and the other faces an internal LAN.  I wanted to know if it's
possible to use the same hostname with different domain names for each
interface. For example, I'd like to call the e1000g0 as
"" and bge0 as "sunbox.local"

I suspect I have to run my own dns server to get this to do the right
thing, but I needed to know how to configure my Solaris box to achieve
