I’m having trouble getting a /22 subnet working on an Ubuntu 16 server. From the outside world, I cannot ping any IPs assigned to VLAN except .2

Ubuntu Server Network Config:

root@server15:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eno1
iface eno1 inet static
        address xxx.53.16.2
        network xxx.53.16.0
        broadcast xxx.53.19.255
        gateway xxx.53.16.1
        # dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
        dns-nameservers xxx.xxx.33.61 xxx.xxx.33.62
        dns-search domain.com

Tried this method too...can't ping any IP but .1 and .2

root@server:~# ip addr add xxx.53.16.1/22 dev eno1
root@server:~# ip addr show
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet scope host lo
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
2: eno1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP group default qlen 1000
    link/ether d4:be:d9:ed:fb:8a brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet xxx.53.16.2/22 brd xxx.53.19.255 scope global eno1
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet xxx.xxx.16.1/22 scope global secondary eno1
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 fe80::d6be:d9ff:feed:fb8a/64 scope link 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

Also added this line in interfaces, still doesn't work

#Add internal route
up route add -net xxx.53.16.0/22 gw xxx.53.16.1 dev eno1

root@server15:~# sudo service networking restart
  • assuming you can ping all of the ips from the machine it's assigned, I would think you have a routing issue returning the icmp to the machine that initiated the request. I had a similar issue where I resolved it. Check here to see if this information helps. askubuntu.com/questions/840827/… – user508889 Nov 8 '16 at 12:26
