#28 Multiple problems during install and initial config

v1.0 (example)
Bomb Squad

Windows 2000 Server 1.5GB RAM fully patched
New install of coLinux
Using Debian-3.0r2.ext3-mit-backports.1gb.bz2
Following GettingStartedLong off of Wiki site
Attempting to set up a bridged network connection

1) I'm a complete *nix noob - should I even be using
Debian-3.0r2.ext3-mit-backports.1gb.bz2 - or should I
be using Debian-20040605-mit.ext3.1610mb.bz2 ???

2) I'm getting "eth0: duplicate address detected!" all
over the place.

Attached you'll find my default.colinux.xml file. I've
left the TAP TCP/IP settings in Windows as DHCP. I've
tried putting in various MAC addresses in to no effect.

I am also getting "IPv6 over IPv4 tunneling driver". I
searched and found something on IPv6, but as a noob I
have no idea what was being said.

I can ping from coLinux to Windows and back. (coLinux
does get a LAN IP address) But I cannot SSH or VNC
into coLinux.

    I guess you have the win-pcap driver installed
    (http://www.winpcap.org/install/default.htm) and 'Local Area
    Connection' is actually the name of your external physical
    network adapter. This has nothing to do with the TAP, so you
    could remove (or ignore) it.

    If this is the case, try the following line:

    <network index='0' name='Local Area Connection'
    type='bridged' mac='11:22:33:44:55:66' />

    If you have a dhcp server in your network coLinux should get
    an IP-Address, if you have the following lines in your
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    What do you get, when you type in (as root) ifconfig?

    Is your sshd running? (type "ps auxw | grep sshd")

    If your sshd is running you could try to set a static IP in
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    address free IP-address in your external network
    gateway IP-Address of your router

    In this case you should also edit /etc/resolv.conf and set a
    nameserver manually: nameserver IP-Address of your nameserver.
