Question about Wind River Slackware Linux 10.0 (slack10.0)

1 Answer

I've got two servers ("BOX-A & B") here

I've got two servers ("BOX-A & B") here running Slackware Linux, both have only a single physical NIC ("BOX-A" has an Intel eepro100 and "BOX-B" has a Netgear GA620T, if that matters.) I was able to configure each machine's primary IP, netmask, and gw using 'netconfig' (works 100%) I need to assign 2 additional IP addresses to each machine, HELP! adding extra NICs is not an option however if it will help at all, I can replace BOX-B's so they both have identical eepro100's. I need the end result to look like: BOX-A:,, (gw BOX-B:,, (gw Both networks are /16 blocks if that matters. If you need any extra information please ask and I will respond ASAP! THANK YOU!!

Hi flakbait!

I'm assuming that the first IP addys (*.15) are the "primary" ones... If you've set them up in netconfig, then 99% of your work is already done. All you need to do is drop a few more lines into rc.inet1.conf and you'll be ready to rock and roll. (You don't have to worry about swapping the nics around either (unless that's your idea of fun, of course ;) Give this a shot (I'm also assuming both machines nics are named == eth0 (change it to suit your setup)))
(*NOTE: Make sure you've got IP ALIASing enabled in the kernel or loaded as a module.*)
Add the following to each server's respective /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf.

# Config information for eth0:0 (2nd IP addy)

# Config information for eth0:1 (3rd IP addy)

For "BOX-B", do the same thing, but swap the 192.168.41.xx IPs for the 10.41.41.xx ones. (You probably also want to add the extra IP addys into /etc/hosts as well, but that's all up to you.) If you want to add any extra IP aliases on the fly, just do something along the lines of:
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:2

Good luck, and long live Slack!

    Sorry to bother you again so quickly, but would you happen to have any experience working with either OpenSSH (server/services) or SCSI DDS3/4 or DLT media changers? If so, i'd love to run an issue or two past you regarding either topic (or both?) No rush, TNX AGAIN!

How to run a guest operating system inside a host operating system without dual...

Install virtual box from : Download VirtualBox

VirtualBox is a cross-platform virtualization application. What does that mean? For one thing, it installs on your existing Intel or AMD-based computers, whether they are running Windows, Mac, Linux or Solaris operating systems. Secondly, it extends the capabilities of your existing computer so that it can run multiple operating systems (inside multiple virtual machines) at the same time. So, for example, you can run Windows and Linux on your Mac, run Windows Server 2008 on your Linux server, run Linux on your Windows PC, and so on, all alongside your existing applications. You can install and run as many virtual machines as you like -- the only practical limits are disk space and memory.

SOCKS is an Internet protocol that facilitates the routing of network packets between client-server applications via a proxy server. SOCKS performs at Layer 5 of the OSI model - the Session Layer (an intermediate layer between the presentation layer and the transport layer).

Clients behind a firewall may connect to a SOCKS proxy server in order to access external services through the firewall. Such a proxy server controls the eligibility of the client to access the external server and, if the client has eligibility, passes the request on to the server. SOCKS can also be used in the opposite way, allowing the clients outside the firewall ("exterior clients") to connect to servers inside the firewall (internal servers).

SOCKS software

* Kernel SOCKS Bouncer ksb26 (Kernel Socks Bouncer) is a Linux Kernel 2.6.x Loadable Kernel Module that redirects TCP connection (to user-defined target hosts) through socks 4/5 chains.
* SS5 Socks Server is an open-source SOCKS4/SOCKS5 server.
* Dante is an open-source SOCKS4/SOCKS5 implementation with commercial support developed by Inferno Nettverk A/S.
* OpenSSH allows dynamic creation of tunnels, specified via a subset of the SOCKS protocol, supporting the CONNECT command.
* WinSocks is a light-weight SOCKS4/SOCKS5 server developed by Proxy Labs.
* SOcat Multipurpose relay (SOcket CAT): includes socks4, and socks4a functionality (Linux / Mac)
* FreeCap Socksifyer for Windows, any App can run its network traffic transparently via a SOCKS or HTTP proxy.
* Simple Socks Server for Perl - SSS is a Simple SOCKS Server written in perl that implements the SOCKS v5 protocol.
* Sun Java System Web Proxy Server is a caching proxy server running on Solaris, Linux and Windows servers that supports HTtp://S, NSAPI I/O filters, dynamic reconfiguration, SOCKSv5 and reverse proxy.
* BarracudaDrive Web Server - commercial SOCKS HTTP HTTPS tunnel/server, available for Windows, embedded Linux and Mac OS X (PowerPC)

What is the difference between unix and linux

UNIX is a operating system which has only command user interface, and if the unix is installed in the system you cant install any other operating system after that ... one separate system must be allocated for the unix ...

LINUX is the graphical user interface and it supports multiple operating system ..

UNIX and LINUX are almost same, almost all commands which supports in UNIX supports in LINUX too .. with some extended features just like GUI(GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE),SECURITY,MULTI USER,MULTI TASKING,etc

COMMAND USER INTERFACE - the input is made to the computer by using commands and the output is obtained by command or by printer ...

GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE- the input is provided to the computer through the other input devices like mouse,joystick etc
the input is provided either by command or by the just clicking the mouse on the particular icon ...
