Network configuration after a new install
« on: November 22, 2005, 07:25:48 pm »
Hello,
I have 3 nic cards on the workstation where i installed pluto. I can see that all nic cards are recognized by the OS and if I manually edit /etc/network/interfaces I can get ip on all nics. However upon a reboot only two nics are enabled and i dont see the old entries in network/interfaces.
What should I do in order to get the entry permanently enabled so I can always get 3 ip addresses. The current workaround I have put is to have a custom shell script invoked last in boot sequence which edits the interfaces file and performs a neworking restart.
I am not sure if its overwritten by pluto as I could see that Debian recognizes the 3 nics early in syslog.
addl ninfo, in pluto admin website, under core network settings tab it says i have 3 nics but presents ip for only two.

The setup is one static WAN address, one static pluto gateway address (which is what it should be per default pluto setup) and I need one more static ip to interconnect another network. I have 4 separate networks and I want to interconnect 3 of them. I thought adding a nic to the core would be a simple choice for me. It works except for the semi manual intervention to assign ip at boot time.

Thanks.

Currently, Pluto isn't too flexible when it comes to network setup. There is a plan to change this, but I can't give any ETAs. So, for the moment, you'll have to stick to your solution.
