Woody routing question...
I've just setup a Debian Woody alpha machine and am currently having
problems with routing... I'm not entirely sure this problem is appropriate
for this list, but here goes... Appologies for the length of the mail too :)
I've got 2 network cards in my machine - Each card is connected to different
networks, but both have public IP addresses.
eth0 = IP: aaa.bbb.80.144 Network: aaa.bbb.80.128 Mask: 255.255.255.128
eth1 = IP: xxx.yy.234.131 Network: xxx.yy.234.128 Mask: 255.255.255.192
My current routing table, as show by running "route -n" is as follows:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
xxx.yy.234.128 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.192 U 0 0 0 eth1
aaa.bbb.80.128 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.128 U 0 0 0 eth0
0.0.0.0 xxx.yy.234.129 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth1
0.0.0.0 aaa.bbb.80.130 0.0.0.0 UG 1 0 0 eth0
eth0 is located on a subnet within a larger network - As follows:
Network: aaa.bbb.80.0 Netmask: 255.255.248.0
eth1 is my main Internet connection, it is used for almost all Internet
eth0 is a network connected to the Internet via a lower bandwidth
connection. The main reason for this interface is to allow hosts on its
network to connect directly to my machine at a higher speed than their
external Internet connection allows. This interface should also communicate
with Internet hosts if they connect to this ifaces IP address.
On to the problem... Machines with eth0's local subnet can communicate with
the server without a problem. Machines outside of the subnet - eg.
aaa.bbb.81.36 - cannot communicate with this interface's ip address.
aaa.bbb.81.36, as well as external Internet hosts, can however connect to
xxx.yy.234.131 without a problem.
I've tried adding routes to eth0's subnet and the larger network as a whole
- Only result being aaa.bb.81.36 can now connect to eth0's ip, but no longer
can get a response from xxx.yy.234.131
Can anyone shed some light on what to do?... My IP routing skills are a
Thanks in advance!...
