I need a little help. I will explain this the best I can so people don't have to ask extra questions.
Essentially, I have a dell poweredge 2650, with 2 nics. eth0 goes to my cable modem, while eth1 goes to a dell powerconnect 3348.
I have installed isc-dhcp-server on my machine also. The goal is for this box to be my dhcp server and my gateway to the magical internet.
Here is my set up for /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp auto eth1 iface eth1 inet static address 10.0.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 10.0.1.0 mtu 1392
I added the mtu in when I was trouble shooting.
- when I type in ifconfig, eth0 has the external address from my comcast cable modem. eth1 is set to 10.0.1.1 like i asked.
- When I connect things to the server via the switch/ethernet, an ip address gets assigned between 10.0.1.150 - 10.0.1.199 without any problems
- When I try to do anything from my gateway, apt-get update/install it connects and works no problem.
- When I try apt-get from my other boxes, its super slow, like 1% a min or slower. I can't access internet pages via my macbook or hp laptop.
However I can ping and traceroute not problem.
via mac terminal
ping -s 549 google.com does not work and gets a time out error but
ping -s 548 google.com works fine.
I have no idea why this would be happening and I can't find anything around other then the mtu stuff which I don't understand.
Let me know if you have any questions or ideas.
