 Post subject: Problem pinging and using server with mobile hotspot
PostPosted: Mon Oct 23, 2017 10:19 pm

 Post subject: Understanding pcap-filter/tcpdumps 'localnet' background
PostPosted: Thu Oct 01, 2015 3:10 pm 
Hello !
In all tcpdump docs, one can find this - or a similar - line:

To select traffic neither sourced from nor destined for local hosts (if you gateway to one other net, this stuff should never make it onto your local net).

ip and not net localnet

I really needed some time to find out, that the mentioned 'localnet' must be in '/etc/networks' - which was not the case for me, ...

 Post subject: ERROR: trying to remove VLAN -:791:- error: Invalid argument
PostPosted: Tue May 12, 2015 6:07 am 
Linux uses "vconfig" utility (vlan package) to add and remove vlans on interfaces in router-on-a-stick manner. Here is the vconfig help:
# vconfig
Expecting argc to be 3-5, inclusive. Was: 1

Usage: add [interface-name] [vlan_id]
rem [vlan-name]
set_flag [interface-name] [flag-num] [0 | 1]
set_egress_map [vlan-name] [skb_priority] [vlan_qos]
set_ingress_map [vlan-name] [skb_priority] [vlan_qos]
set_name_type [name-type]

* The [interface-name] is the name of the ethernet card that hosts
the VLAN you are talking about.
* The vlan_id is ...

 Post subject: Linux script for interface network bandwidth monitoring
PostPosted: Mon Feb 09, 2015 7:05 pm 
This is a simple script that gets RX / TX values of an interface from /sys pseudo filesystem and calculate difference between current and old values displaying a bandwidth output for kilobytes per second.

INT="1" # every INT seconds

while true
RX1=`cat /sys/class/net/$1/statistics/rx_bytes`
TX1=`cat /sys/class/net/$1/statistics/tx_bytes`
sleep $INT
RX2=`cat /sys/class/net/$1/statistics/rx_bytes`
TX2=`cat /sys/class/net/$1/statistics/tx_bytes`
TXBPS=`expr $TX2 - $TX1`
RXBPS=`expr $RX2 - $RX1`
TXKBPS=`expr $TXBPS / 1024`
RXKBPS=`expr $RXBPS / 1024`
echo "TX $1: $TXKBPS kb/s ...
