Dhcp gateway error


(Nitram Oneito) #1

NethServer Version: latest
Module: Network

I have been experiencing a challenge that has so far been repetitive.
in some vps providers, After installing nethserver, the network is default to DHCP, which alwys gives me an warning on the screen.
so I have to change to a static .

The challenge comes when I try to configure the static ip, at the section of gateway, sometimes I would use if ip is I would set the gateway to and it would work, in some instances it would not.

Even if I do a route -n in command line, I get the gateway, when I use it, it does not work.

The challenge I gte biggest, is that I get locked out of the server, I can not ping to the server, and even if I og in via vnc, I can not ping outside. why does this keep happening,

so far my solutions has been to rebuild the server, if the provider does not offer image backups, or restore from a restore point I created.

is it an issue with nethserver, with my configurations, or with the provider?

@oneitonitram which network zone are you talking about? Red? Green? Orange?

(Nitram Oneito) #3

It is on the green network mostly

It should work if you set the same static IP you got from DHCP.

When you only have a green interface the gateway needs to be entered on the green interface. If you have an additional red interface the gateway needs to be entered there.

I have tried to enter the same ip address as the server, it refues,
is there a problem if nethserver operates with dhcp instead of static ip, on a vps

(Markus Neuberger) #6

I am used to static IPs for servers but if the IP doesn’t change there should be no problem on a VPS but I never tried.

its ok, its the warning which I cant shut o


(Markus Neuberger) #8

These messages are in /etc/nethserver/todos.d/.

IIRC it’s enough to chmod -x /etc/nethserver/todos.d/10green-dhcp

in a short while ill be guru
I was wondering, where are the future development roadmaps listed?

(Markus Neuberger) #10

You’re welcome.

Here it is the roadmap:

IMHO, use a public address as Green zone interface could not be best choice for security…

At least… If you don’t change the firewall default rules.
