Not sure if this is a CoLinux
or Debian issue, any help welcomed. The Debain image is from the
CoLinux downloads page. Updated with latest bits, dnsutils etc.
0.7.5 installed on a Windows 7 x86 box. Wireshark works so I am guessing
Winpcap is working too.
In my CoLinux .conf file I have:
At boot the set up for eth0 fails. No idea why. A grep through the logs
in /var/log shows nothing. The console shows this:
Setting up networking....
Configuring network interfaces...Operation failed.
Failed to bring up eth0.
As far as the Debian (sourceforge download) installation goes in
/etc/network/interfaces I've got:
# The primary network interface (win-pcap)
iface eth0 inet dhcp
# Second network (tap-win32)
# DHCP works on tap
iface eth1 inet dhcp
# static works on tap
#iface eth1 inet static
# address 192.168.101.88
# netmask 255.255.255.0
# gateway 192.168.101.1
Bizarrely perhaps I get the same problem if I reverse the configuration
i.e. have the tap adapter as eth0.
Any clues on this?
BTW For anyone else dealing with networking issues let me say that eth1
works perfectly in a standard SoHo 'behind the router' enviroment. I
get DHCP and correct DNS resolution ( the latter only I removed the
wretched resolvconf and manually added a nameserver entry to
udev from Debian renames the network interfaces. Please read the
comments and hints in Wiki:
