Ensuring network interfaces remain named consistently

Post date: November 25, 2006, 08:11 Category: Network Views: 2736 Comments
Tutorial quote: I was answering a recent weblog post and I figured the reply was sufficiently interesting to be a short and sweet article, plus the feedback from you guys is always great. So, here it is: Making sure that network interface ordering remains constant.

The lost art of named pipes

Post date: April 15, 2005, 21:04 Category: System Views: 2819 Comments
Tutorial quote: A "named pipe" -- also known as a FIFO (First In, First Out) or just fifo -- is an inter-process communication mechanism that makes use of the filesystem to allow two processes to communicate with each other. In particular, it allows one of these to open one end of the pipe as a reader, and the other to open it as a writer. Let's take a look at the FIFO and how you can use it.

How to Set up Network Bonding in Ubuntu 6.10

Post date: February 16, 2007, 22:02 Category: Network Views: 5607 Comments
Tutorial quote: Network Bonding, otherwise known as port trunking allows you to combine multiple network ports into a single group, effectively aggregating the bandwidth of multiple interfaces into a single connection. For example, you can aggregate two gigabyte ports into a two-gigabyte trunk port. Bonding is used primarily to provide network load balancing and fault tolerance.

Change your Network card MAC ( Media Access Control) address

Post date: December 4, 2007, 10:12 Category: Network Views: 3052 Comments
Tutorial quote: Media Access Control address, a hardware address that uniquely identifies each node of a network. In IEEE 802 networks, the Data Link Control (DLC) layer of the OSI Reference Model is divided into two sublayers: the Logical Link Control (LLC) layer and the Media Access Control (MAC) layer. The MAC layer interfaces directly with the network medium.Consequently, each different type of network medium requires a different MAC layer. On networks that do not conform to the IEEE 802 standards but do conform to the OSI Reference Model, the node address is called the Data Link Control (DLC) address.

If you want to change your network card mac address you need to use simple utility called mac changer.MAC changer is a utility for manipulating the MAC address of network interfaces

Aggregating network interfaces

Post date: February 12, 2006, 07:02 Category: Network Views: 3017 Comments
Tutorial quote: Using more than one hard drive to achieve better performance and fault tolerance is very common. Less well known is that it's also possible to aggregate more than one network interface into a single logical interface. In Linux, this is handled by the bonding driver. Benefits of doing this are much the same as the benefits of aggregating discs using RAID: if one device dies, your server carries on working and by using two devices in parallel, performance can be improved.

Router Bandwidth Management Example

Post date: November 11, 2007, 05:11 Category: Network Views: 4882 Comments
Tutorial quote: I will show you how to use HTB to control traffic based on what IP address you are coming from. Remember that HTB only shapes outgoing traffic, but since we have at least 2 interfaces on a router - and traffic is always outgoing on one of the interfaces - we can control up and down speeds.

Kismet An 802.11 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system

Post date: September 2, 2009, 13:09 Category: Software Views: 3626 Comments
Tutorial quote: Kismet is a 802.11b wireless network sniffer. It is capable of sniffing using almost any supported wireless card using the Airo, HostAP, Wlan-NG, and Orinoco (with a kernel patch) drivers.Kismet identifies networks by passively collecting packets and detecting standard named networks, detecting (and given time, decloaking) hidden networks, and infering the presence of nonbeaconing networks via data

Network Card Bonding On CentOS

Post date: July 5, 2007, 00:07 Category: Network Views: 5975 Comments
Tutorial quote: Bonding is the same as port trunking. In the following I will use the word bonding because practically we will bond interfaces as one. Bonding allows you to aggregate multiple ports into a single group, effectively combining the bandwidth into a single connection. Bonding also allows you to create multi-gigabit pipes to transport traffic through the highest traffic areas of your network. For example, you can aggregate three megabits ports into a three-megabits trunk port. That is equivalent with having one interface with three megabytes speed.
