I installed a test tjener behind an ipcop. The ipcop originally was
serving dhcp so that I could do the netinst.
After first boot, I notice that tjener has reconfigured its networking
correctly and is serving dhcp, so I disabled dhcp in the ipcop, then
rebooted a test client (plain wheezy)
Now I have some difficulties:
1. DNS is not working properly.
The client on the test network can ping outside the school by ip
address, but not by name. It can ping tjener by name and number, and
the ipcop by number.
The new tjener can't ping the ipcop by number, but it can ping the
client by number! It can't ping outside at all.
I'm a bit confused what to configure, because on the other side of the
ipcop is the real tjener, with the same ip address.
2.The user I created during install can't login, though the home in
home0 is there (I saw that earlier post). I had to do adduser from a
root login on a tty. (couldn't change passwd for the existing user)
3. There is nothing to do in gosa, other than "user settings /
generic" which says it has no valid extensions. I logged in as admin
using the root password. Nowhere to add users or machines.
I don't need answers - this is just a test. If there is something I
should be doing differently with the ipcop, however, that would be
good to know.
Thanks for the great work you have been doing!
