February 23rd, 2009, 08:42 AM
Hello all, this is my first ever post, so don't beat me up to much....
ive searched and searched but i cant seam to find a solution that works for me...

ok, so i have a old dell box(server edition 8.10) that I am planing to install snort on and put between my my router and my LAN.

So my problems start with configuring /etc/network/interfaces....
i found this guide to help me out http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/setting-up-an-network-interfaces-file/

so i edited the interfaces file to:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0 eth1
mapping eth0 eth1
script /usr/share/doc/ifupdown/examples/get-mac-address.sh
map aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff net
map 11:22:33:44:55:66 lan

iface net inet dhcp

iface lan inet static
address 10.o.o.1

then when i run .../networking restart it fails

any suggestions????

Is your setup really set to 10.o.o.1 as these should be 0 zeros not the letter o.
