Discussion:
Running Wireless and Wired eth connections at the same time
(too old to reply)

Hi...

I have a laptop that's connected to the 'net via the wireless port. It
works. I also have the eth0 port that I use to connect to another box that's
not connected to the 'net...

so

internal box >>>>laptop >>>>> internet
(X) (Y)

X - eth0
Y - ath0

Each of the connections work.

My question, how do I set them up (if possible) so I can have them both
working at the same time. As it is now, it I have them both active, I can
only access the connections to the 1st one that was active..

The nics are on separate IP addresses..

I've been looking high/low to try to figure this out. I need to accomplish
this, as I'd like to update the internal computer with Fedora update rpms
via yum, which requires internet access.

thanks

I may not have understood the question,
but I would use two different subnets, say 192.168.1.* and 192.168.2.*
for the two connections.

If you are not using dhcp you can do this by specifying the IP addresses
in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-[ath0,eth0] .

I think many people have two (or more) connections active
on the same computer.

Hi Tim.

Thanks. You understand! However, with setting up two subnets, I have the
issue of the internal server not being able to see anything but the laptop.
I'd like a way to be able to allow the internal box to access the internet
via the laptop's wireless connection...

the basic issue is I'm not sure how to configure the laptop, and the
internal server to allow the internal server to be able to access the
internet as well...

here's what i have so far.

dns
internal box <<<< >>>laptop >>>+>>> internet
192.168.2.99 (eth0) (ath0)
192.168.2.33 192.168.1.33

the laptop can access both the internal box, and the internet
the internal box can only access the laptop...

i'm trying to be able to allow the internal box to be able to access
everything that the laptop can...

thanks

The best one I've seen yet is this:

http://www.alienarena.org/

As far as I know, this game isn't yet in any of the yum repositories, but it's
easy to download, compile and get started blasting aliens.

Ya ... sorry ... when you wrote openarena I was reading Alien Arena.

I tried downloading Alien Arena but the binary does not run in F7 due
to needing older libcurl and libssl and the source doesn't build due
to some mystery devel requirements.

A shame since there was a bit of hype recently about it and wanted to
try it out..

I haven't tried openarena out yet.

Sure it does -- I compiled it and was playing it two or three days ago on this
F7 machine.

Any specific problems that you have when attempting to compile it?

You must have the mystery build requirements installed then. Are there
legal issues preventing someone from packaging this up and submitting
it to the regular repository so people can just yum it? Or is it just
a size issue for the mirrors since the download of the birnary+source
package was quite large?

Good question. I'm quite certain that the size issue is irrelevant, since
we have many other huge packages (OpenOffice.org, Tremulous/Nexuiz data,
etc.) in the repository as well. I quickly took a peek at the source
tarball and the files all seem to be GPL. Maybe it's the data/artwork?

Looks like missing OpenGL headers. A `yum install mesa-libGL-devel` as root
should (hopefully) solve that issue.

But this could go on and on so I give up for now since I need sleep

I tried downloading Alien Arena but the binary does not run in F7 due
to needing older libcurl and libssl and the source doesn't build due
to some mystery devel requirements.
Sure it does -- I compiled it and was playing it two or three days ago on this
F7 machine.

Any specific problems that you have when attempting to compile it?

Should be in the standard repo's if i do a yum search openarena it
comes up so a simple yum install openarena should work.
[root at esstt ~]# grep aren liste
openarena.i386 0.7.1-1.fc7 updates
openarena-data.i386 0.7.1-1.fc7 updates
Ya ... sorry ... when you wrote openarena I was reading Alien Arena.

I tried downloading Alien Arena but the binary does not run in F7 due
to needing older libcurl and libssl and the source doesn't build due
to some mystery devel requirements.

A shame since there was a bit of hype recently about it and wanted to
try it out..

I haven't tried openarena out yet.

Open Arena installs via yum and is a great game.
Which repo is it in? It doesn't seem to be in any of the default ones or Livna.

The best one I've seen yet is this:

http://www.alienarena.org/

As far as I know, this game isn't yet in any of the yum repositories, but it's
easy to download, compile and get started blasting aliens.

Hi Tim.
Thanks. You understand! However, with setting up two subnets, I have the
issue of the internal server not being able to see anything but the laptop.
I'd like a way to be able to allow the internal box to access the internet
via the laptop's wireless connection...
the basic issue is I'm not sure how to configure the laptop, and the
internal server to allow the internal server to be able to access the
internet as well...
here's what i have so far.
dns
internal box <<<< >>>laptop >>>+>>> internet
192.168.2.99 (eth0) (ath0)
192.168.2.33 192.168.1.33
the laptop can access both the internal box, and the internet
the internal box can only access the laptop...
i'm trying to be able to allow the internal box to be able to access
everything that the laptop can...
thanks
Is ip-forwarding enabled on the laptop?

I think (but am not sure) that you need to use NAT
(Network Address Translation) on your laptop.

I think many people do what you are asking,
except that it is normally the other way round -
with a desktop linked to the internet,
and laptop getting to the internet via the desktop.

I have this, and use shorewall on my desktop.
This is the standard Fedora firewall,
but it also includes the option to use NAT.
I think the installation is reasonably clear.

I actually have two local networks, for ethernet and WiFi,
and a third link to the internet.
It all seems to work OK.

Maybe I am wrong, but I believe You need to setup eth0 as a bridged network
connection. There is a howto about it in www.tldp.org :-).

You are.

The laptop needs forwarding enabled:
10:13 [summer at numbat ~]$ grep ip_ /etc/sysctl.conf
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0
08:19 [summer at numbat ~]$
Change that to 1. "man sysctl"

Hosts on each side need route set so the can find the other. "man route"

Use of tcpdump on the laptop can help sort out where packets are being
lost. "man tcpdump"
Something like this:
tcpdump -i any host a and host b
Hosts a and be are on opposite sides of the laptop.

He is only wrong is that you do not have to set up a bridge. But a
bridge would work. There is more then one way to do things. Using
bridging instead of two subnets and forwarding rules has some
advantages, depending on exactly what you are trying to do. It has
definite advantages if you have more then one machine on the wired
side of the laptop, and you want the machines on the wireless side
to easily talk to them. Using bridging, you can put everything on
the same subnet. You should also be able to use one DHCP server and
DHCP for the entire network. (DHCP packets should travel across the
bridge without any problems.

I am not sure, but I would expect it to also use less resources on
the laptop, because you would only have to examine incoming packets
for the bridge IP address. Everything else can be passed to the
other interface(s) of the bridge. But you also have the option of
writing IPtables rules to limit this.

Hi...
I have a laptop that's connected to the 'net via the wireless port. It
works. I also have the eth0 port that I use to connect to another box that's
not connected to the 'net...
so
internal box >>>>laptop >>>>> internet
(X) (Y)
X - eth0
Y - ath0
Each of the connections work.
My question, how do I set them up (if possible) so I can have them both
working at the same time. As it is now, it I have them both active, I can
only access the connections to the 1st one that was active..
The nics are on separate IP addresses..
I've been looking high/low to try to figure this out. I need to accomplish
this, as I'd like to update the internal computer with Fedora update rpms
via yum, which requires internet access.
Are you using Network Mangler?

I have not problem, not using it. but I enabled it on my Laptop
(openSuSe 10.2) where it's basically broken.

Hi john, and all!!

Thanks for the replies to this....

What I really wound up doing to resolve this:

Setup:
Laptop
ath0 - 192.168.1.33 (sub1)
eth0 - 192.168.2.33 (sub2)

Internal Box
eth0 - 192.168.2.99 (sub2)

This allows me to be able to have the laptop connect to both the wireless
network, and the internal box at the same time.

I also needed to modify the laptop/internal box:

Laptop:
-setup iptables for masquerade on ath0 port.
this basically takes traffic on eth0 and forwards it to ath0
-setup box for ip_forwarding (/etc/sysctl.conf)

Internal Box
-setup "route" to use the laptop eth0 as the gateway (route
cmd)

To ensure traffic works, check the traffic on the laptop for both eth0/ath0
using iptraf, to see what is coming from the Internal box, and to ensure
that it gets to the wireless network...

It works as required....

Thanks!!

that it gets to the wireless network...
It works as required....
Thanks!!

here's what i have so far.
dns
internal box <<<< >>>laptop >>>+>>> internet
192.168.2.99 (eth0) (ath0)
192.168.2.33 192.168.1.33
the laptop can access both the internal box, and the internet
the internal box can only access the laptop...
i'm trying to be able to allow the internal box to be able to access
everything that the laptop can...
Maybe I am wrong, but I believe You need to setup eth0 as a bridged
network

connection. There is a howto about it in www.tldp.org :-).
You are.
10:13 [summer at numbat ~]$ grep ip_ /etc/sysctl.conf
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0
08:19 [summer at numbat ~]$
Change that to 1. "man sysctl"
Hosts on each side need route set so the can find the other. "man route"
Use of tcpdump on the laptop can help sort out where packets are being
lost. "man tcpdump"
tcpdump -i any host a and host b
Hosts a and be are on opposite sides of the laptop.

Hi john, and all!!
Thanks for the replies to this....
Laptop
ath0 - 192.168.1.33 (sub1)
eth0 - 192.168.2.33 (sub2)
Internal Box
eth0 - 192.168.2.99 (sub2)
This allows me to be able to have the laptop connect to both the wireless
network, and the internal box at the same time.
-setup iptables for masquerade on ath0 port.
That's usually wrong
It may be...if we were able to divine what "that" is. :-)

I sometimes answer questions or make observations in the same way but I've
found that people (if they are interested in what they think I'm saying) ask
me what I meant by what I've said and I end up having to respond to another
email anyway.

So, care to elaborate?

this basically takes traffic on eth0 and forwards it to ath0
-setup box for ip_forwarding (/etc/sysctl.conf)
Internal Box
-setup "route" to use the laptop eth0 as the gateway (route
cmd)
To ensure traffic works, check the traffic on the laptop for both eth0/ath0
using iptraf, to see what is coming from the Internal box, and to ensure
that it gets to the wireless network...
It works as required....

hey john..

since you've stated that what i did was "usually" wrong, and what i did,
happened to be what a number of other people on other sites have done, why
don't you give details, examples, theory as to why it's wrong. also, provide
a better solution, along with the theory/rationale as to why your approach
is more stable, more secure, etc...

thanks

-Sam

Because you don't pay me enough. If you want to be spoon-fed, then i
want to be paid.

I especially don't like helping people who don't appear to help
themselves. See what google has to say about linux routing.

Even (shock horror) go buy a book. Sams has some good ones. Oreilly has
a lot (but maybe not for beginners).

My first Linux was Slack 2.6 on a book. My second was the official RHL
3.0.3 retail pack.

There's a lot of email on this list, and I could probably spend all day
on it. I won't, unless I'm paid to do so.

if you want help from the best people on this list (and I don't
necessarily mean me, there are other experienced users here too), then
you need to make your question interesting to them.

Hey, I have an idea....

Since responding with one liners isn't helpful and you don't want to spoon
feed people but want to be paid to be "really" helpful...then try not
posting. It will be easier for all involved.

Or, if you can't resist the urge to post, simply create a template response
of "RTFM" and be done with it.

IMHO, this and other lists are all about sharing and spreading knowledge.
If you're not willing to share...I think you can finish that sentence.

FWIW, haven't you ever been a newbie?

It would be easier for all (including the beginners) if people with
problems made a decent effort to find out for themselves. There's not
much here that google doesn't already know about.

If people took a few minutes to google, they'd have their answers before
their questions got an answer, and that would be better for them.

Sure...but this is the "real world" and we all know that isn't going to
happen no matter how many times it is suggested or how many "read before

So, IMHO, if you are unwilling or unable to provide good advice then it is
best to provide no advice at all.

Well, maybe. What happens when the person does the google and then gets
conflicting answers or an answer that conflicts with your answer? I think
we all know that one cannot easily separate the correct from the incorrect
in google response and that there certainly is a ton of bad information out
in the internet world.

You say "I prefer to keep trying to educate them" yet you post one line
responses of debatable value. And, you seem to have indicated that it is
lack of compensation as part of the issue. As in you don't get paid enough
to provide a complete and comprehensive response.

Certainly, your one line answer hasn't keep anyones inbox less cluttered.
But, I'll take responsibility for that. :-(

The particular one-liner that seems to have attracted your ire was in

I think I should not have done that.... Got hit by a motor scooter... Only
a broken nose, destroyed glasses and numerous abrasions. In hind sight I
should have stayed home and argued needlessly. :-(

I detect a bit of contradiction....

You say "I prefer to keep trying to educate them" yet you post one line
responses of debatable value. And, you seem to have indicated that it is
lack of compensation as part of the issue. As in you don't get paid enough
to provide a complete and comprehensive response.

Certainly, your one line answer hasn't keep anyones inbox less cluttered.
But, I'll take responsibility for that. :-(

In any event...life goes on.

Since responding with one liners isn't helpful and you don't want to spoon
feed people but want to be paid to be "really" helpful...then try not
posting. It will be easier for all involved.
It would be easier for all (including the beginners) if people with
problems made a decent effort to find out for themselves. There's not
much here that google doesn't already know about.
Sure...but this is the "real world" and we all know that isn't going to
happen no matter how many times it is suggested or how many "read before
posting" notices are set.
So, IMHO, if you are unwilling or unable to provide good advice then it is
best to provide no advice at all.

If people took a few minutes to google, they'd have their answers before
their questions got an answer, and that would be better for them.
Well, maybe. What happens when the person does the google and then gets
conflicting answers or an answer that conflicts with your answer? I think
we all know that one cannot easily separate the correct from the incorrect
in google response and that there certainly is a ton of bad information out
in the internet world.
As I replied to Sam, then one has a better problem to describe and can
show you, Aaron and a few others I recall from some time ago that they
have, at least, made a decent effort to help themselves.

I especially don't like helping people who don't appear to help
themselves. See what google has to say about linux routing.

Even (shock horror) go buy a book. Sams has some good ones. Oreilly has
a lot (but maybe not for beginners).

My first Linux was Slack 2.6 on a book. My second was the official RHL
3.0.3 retail pack.

There's a lot of email on this list, and I could probably spend all day
on it. I won't, unless I'm paid to do so.

if you want help from the best people on this list (and I don't
necessarily mean me, there are other experienced users here too), then
you need to make your question interesting to them.

unless i missed one of your posts, you didn't outline what was wrong. if you
did, could you repost as i'm missing some of this thread.

as far as the masquerade, i would suggest you google. there are plenty of
sites using it, suggesting it. there are plenty of people on various
forums/channels mentioning it as well...

so, if you have specific knowledge of why it's wrong, share, or in the words
of a friend of mine.. shut the f* up...

so john...

in your case.. when the user uses google to find an answer.. what happens
when the user gets conflicting information from different sites.

you see, you never ask if the user has used google, or where they got their
information, you simply assume that the user is asking without doing any
initial research.

in the case of this situation, the solution proposed is as i stated, freely
used/provided on a number of sites..

anyway.. peace.

The onus is on the user. If you want good advice, make sure that you can
filter out the nonsense, and there is quite a deal of that on any list,
as people begin to help.

It doesn't mean it's the right solution. Maquerading (more properly,
Network Address Translation (NAT)) is good when you're connecting your
SOHO LAN to the Internet and you want the LAN protected.

If you want to run servers of any kind on both sides to serve the other
(and this would include Windows desktops sharing files), then NAT is
wrong. Mostly, when people configure a router, the would like avery
machine on each side to see all on the other.

John...

The one line that you posted, about "this being wrong" was not directed at a
posting stating that this was the right/only way to accomplish my goal.
Rather, the posting that I did, that you replied to, was my solution to the
issue that I had faced, letting people who had provided information to know
that I had solved it.

I quite clearly posted what my setup was, and what I had changed/modified,
to allow someone else who might it, to take advantage of the situation.

You as always, are quite able and in fact can add to the knowledgebase if
you care to by scratching out a rough layout, and describing what should be
implemented as you would choose to do it.

peace...

I replied to several. Your initial posting (10/15/07 09:30) was asking
for information.

At 10/17/07 08:22 I asserted Marko was wrong (his post invited that
response) that you needed bridging. Bridging would work, but leave the
network(s) unable to contact the router.

I also outlined my suggestion then.

In the context of your having done something different from what routers
generally do, I said "That's usually wrong "

I should have pruned, but I'd already given the usual solution.

I actually run a similar setup here, including two wireless links:

In the house: First building Second bldg
[internet] --- [router]+[AP} -- [router]-[AP]--- [router]

The first router is a Pentium IV running CentOS4. It's wired to an
access point.

The second router is a laptop running FC5 or so, with a pccard and wired
to a second AP.

The third router is in my office, and runs WBEL4. it has a tp-link PCI
wireless card, and serves the peecees in the office.

I wouldn't ordinarily use two APs for such a setup, but the signal from
the house simply doesn't carry well enough.

From house to second building is what I'd suggest for most people.
Subject to routing and firewalls all machines can reach all the others.
With your setup, that's not possible.

That's why yours is "usually wrong."

I actually run a similar setup here, including two wireless links:

In the house: First building Second bldg
[internet] --- [router]+[AP} -- [router]-[AP]--- [router]

The first router is a Pentium IV running CentOS4. It's wired to an
access point.

The second router is a laptop running FC5 or so, with a pccard and wired
to a second AP.

The third router is in my office, and runs WBEL4. it has a tp-link PCI
wireless card, and serves the peecees in the office.

I wouldn't ordinarily use two APs for such a setup, but the signal from
the house simply doesn't carry well enough.

From house to second building is what I'd suggest for most people.
Subject to routing and firewalls all machines can reach all the others.
With your setup, that's not possible.

That's why yours is "usually wrong."

but see john...

i wasn't asking for your information in this case.

i was describing the setup that i implemented, that provided the solution
that worked for me, for the setup that i described.

as i've stated, you're more than welcome to craft your own network and the
solution that you would implement.

peace..

It doesn't mean it's the right solution. Maquerading (more properly,
Network Address Translation (NAT)) is good when you're connecting your
SOHO LAN to the Internet and you want the LAN protected.

If you want to run servers of any kind on both sides to serve the other
(and this would include Windows desktops sharing files), then NAT is
wrong. Mostly, when people configure a router, the would like avery
machine on each side to see all on the other.

Hi...

I have a laptop that's connected to the 'net via the wireless port. It
works. I also have the eth0 port that I use to connect to another box that's
not connected to the 'net...

so

internal box >>>>laptop >>>>> internet
(X) (Y)

X - eth0
Y - ath0

Each of the connections work.

My question, how do I set them up (if possible) so I can have them both
working at the same time. As it is now, it I have them both active, I can
only access the connections to the 1st one that was active..

The nics are on separate IP addresses..

I've been looking high/low to try to figure this out. I need to accomplish
this, as I'd like to update the internal computer with Fedora update rpms
via yum, which requires internet access.

thanks

I may not have understood the question,
but I would use two different subnets, say 192.168.1.* and 192.168.2.*
for the two connections.

If you are not using dhcp you can do this by specifying the IP addresses
in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-[ath0,eth0] .

I think many people have two (or more) connections active
on the same computer.

Hi Tim.

Thanks. You understand! However, with setting up two subnets, I have the
issue of the internal server not being able to see anything but the laptop.
I'd like a way to be able to allow the internal box to access the internet
via the laptop's wireless connection...

the basic issue is I'm not sure how to configure the laptop, and the
internal server to allow the internal server to be able to access the
internet as well...

here's what i have so far.
Post by sam
dns
internal box <<<< >>>laptop >>>+>>> internet
192.168.2.99 (eth0) (ath0)
192.168.2.33 192.168.1.33

the laptop can access both the internal box, and the internet
the internal box can only access the laptop...

i'm trying to be able to allow the internal box to be able to access
everything that the laptop can...

thanks

Hi john, and all!!

Thanks for the replies to this....

What I really wound up doing to resolve this:

Setup:
Laptop
ath0 - 192.168.1.33 (sub1)
eth0 - 192.168.2.33 (sub2)

Internal Box
eth0 - 192.168.2.99 (sub2)

This allows me to be able to have the laptop connect to both the wireless
network, and the internal box at the same time.

I also needed to modify the laptop/internal box:

Laptop:
-setup iptables for masquerade on ath0 port.
this basically takes traffic on eth0 and forwards it to ath0
-setup box for ip_forwarding (/etc/sysctl.conf)

Internal Box
-setup "route" to use the laptop eth0 as the gateway (route
cmd)

To ensure traffic works, check the traffic on the laptop for both eth0/ath0
using iptraf, to see what is coming from the Internal box, and to ensure
that it gets to the wireless network...

It works as required....

Thanks!!

connection. There is a howto about it in www.tldp.org :-).
You are.

The laptop needs forwarding enabled:
10:13 [summer at numbat ~]$ grep ip_ /etc/sysctl.conf
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0
08:19 [summer at numbat ~]$
Change that to 1. "man sysctl"

Hosts on each side need route set so the can find the other. "man route"

Use of tcpdump on the laptop can help sort out where packets are being
lost. "man tcpdump"
Something like this:
tcpdump -i any host a and host b
Hosts a and be are on opposite sides of the laptop.

happened to be what a number of other people on other sites have done, why
don't you give details, examples, theory as to why it's wrong. also, provide

no john..

unless i missed one of your posts, you didn't outline what was wrong. if you
did, could you repost as i'm missing some of this thread.

as far as the masquerade, i would suggest you google. there are plenty of
sites using it, suggesting it. there are plenty of people on various
forums/channels mentioning it as well...

so, if you have specific knowledge of why it's wrong, share, or in the words
of a friend of mine.. shut the f* up...

peace..

Hey, I have an idea....
Since responding with one liners isn't helpful and you don't want to spoon
feed people but want to be paid to be "really" helpful...then try not
posting. It will be easier for all involved.
It would be easier for all (including the beginners) if people with
problems made a decent effort to find out for themselves. There's not
much here that google doesn't already know about.

If people took a few minutes to google, they'd have their answers before
their questions got an answer, and that would be better for them.
Post by Ed Greshko
Or, if you can't resist the urge to post, simply create a template
response

of "RTFM" and be done with it.
IMHO, this and other lists are all about sharing and spreading knowledge.
If you're not willing to share...I think you can finish that sentence.
FWIW, haven't you ever been a newbie?
yes, Ed. I said so. I also described how I learned to feed myself.

John...

The one line that you posted, about "this being wrong" was not directed at a
posting stating that this was the right/only way to accomplish my goal.
Rather, the posting that I did, that you replied to, was my solution to the
issue that I had faced, letting people who had provided information to know
that I had solved it.

I quite clearly posted what my setup was, and what I had changed/modified,
to allow someone else who might it, to take advantage of the situation.

You as always, are quite able and in fact can add to the knowledgebase if
you care to by scratching out a rough layout, and describing what should be
implemented as you would choose to do it.
