Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ Networking issue: F9 Sulfur

Posted by: cantaberry May 22 2008, 12:04 AM


Here's my topology:

ETH0 (internet; 216.196.246.two-oh-two; Gateway 216.196.246.two-oh-one Netmask
ETH1 (intranet;; Gateway 216.196.246.two-oh-two; Netmask
WiFi (Wireless Router;, Gateway 10.0.01; Netmask

When I restart my network, it bards with
Bringing up interface eth1: RTNETLINK answers: File exists
Error adding address for eth1

BUT, if I unplug my wireless router, it comes up fine.

Any suggestions? This is driving me nuts.

ETH1 failing is making shorewall fail and thus my internal network is pooched. If I bring up eth1 manually, shorewall starts up and all is good.

But I would love it if I could reboot my box and have everything work.

BTW, this same configuration worked fine in an FC ~4 box.
