Most newer distros inexplicably cause your NIC to have what Icall "random" non-standard name conventions because of systemd.
This is a big problem for many people and especially those running servers. Imagine that you have a static IPconfigured for ens33 but then the hard disk is moved to a newer system, the NIC could be anything from ens33 to enp0s1, meaning that manual intervention is required to go and update the NIC config file (eg. /etc/network/interfa........
Create your netplan file
Yes you have that right, the network service in CentOS 8 no longer exists. So there is no more systemctl restart network
You can restart NetworkManager but it doesn't have the same effect or ifup/ifdown on all interfaces.
To replicate that the best you can do is type the following commands to nmcli
nmcli networking off; nmcli networking on

It is fairly simple to use once you know how to use it. However, the tricky thing is that by default it doesn't seem to be active or listen on any interface on manually specified.
How To Install ifplugd
First we install ifplugd
sudo apt install ifplugd
Let's enable it on our desired device(s)
set this line as so:........
Just edit your tftp file for xinetd like this:
*Change the IPto be the IPof the interface you want to listen on.
To test if your tftp is available on a certain IP range use nc -u yourip 69 to see if you can still connect (/var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog) should show the connection if it is open.

Having a network bridge allows you to bridge traffic under multiple devices so they can talk natively without using any special routing, iptables/firewall or other trickery.
To create your bridge you need the bridge-utils package for brctl and if you want to do things like bridge VMs that run on a tap device you will need the uml-utilities which provides "tunctl".
Install the utilities to make our bridge
sudo apt-get install........
By default your DHCP will often not work because it is not listening on any interfaces.
All you have to do is edit this file:
then find the "INTERFACES" line and add each interface that should listen:
In most of the Cisco router IOS I find the ports like ge0/0 ge0/1 and ge0/2 or whatever your ports are down. They will not even give you a link light. So one of the first tasks should be getting the port you are working with up.
In my case the first goal is often connectivity with the LAN and WAN.
LAN = your local area network (eg. in the office/home )
WAN= your ISP/public internet (eg. fiber/cable/dsl/ethernet).
In these examples I as........

Cisco's CUCM (Cisco Unified Communication Manager) is a system that combines voice, video, data and mobile products into a single unified management suite. At its core, the CUCMis like a "Super PBX" that controls the flow of all communications through an organization even single or multiple site deployments.
Cisco's CUCMmakes communication more effective and simple through centralized management and unification of communications resources.........
You can find many ways to specify the VLANin your network configuration but Ifind this is the simplest and quickest.
In this case we are talking about a bridged adapter "vmbr0" but it works even if you just had a normal non-bridged interface.
The key here is that in vmbr0 you'll notice there is no IP address. We just specify "manual".
Below it is a similar stanza for "vmbr0.58" in this case 58 represents the VLAN (change........
I've read a few guides about this but they didn't work for me.
sudo apt-get install bridge-utils
#don't think the above is enough it won't work still even though you have by default an /etc/qemu-ifup that handles it if you have the right tools and setup

This is useful for security purposes especially on a server which may have a public IP assigned to it but has a second NIC for the LAN.
Here is how you edit smb.conf:
interfaces = 192.168.1.50
bind interfaces only = yes
As you can see above it will only listen on 192.168.1.50 and remind to keep the "bind interfaces only"option.........
By default Samba SMB/NMB listen on ANY and ALLIPs on your system by binding to 0.0.0.0. Obviously this is a huge security risk if you have a public facing server with both internal and external access. Usually when a system administrator sets up a samba server their intention is just to share with a LAN.
To do this you need to the following options under the [global] section in smb.conf
bind interfaces only = yes
interfaces = 192........

If you move your hard drive(s) around to other computers/servers, you'll find that your eth0 keeps getting higher, the first time it will become eth1 and then eth2 etc and even higher if your server has dual or quad NICs. The reason is that udevd basically assigns eth0 tot he first NIC it finds and remembers it, if it encounters a NIC with a differentMAC, it assigns it one higher (eg. eth1).
See the example below, I have eth2 now so how doI fix it?........
I've run into two issues with Lantronix based KVMs on various servers and here's how I solved them (with that said I like these units as they are Java based and OS independent and work very well, unike some other models like Startech).
1.) If you are connected by USB only and you're sure USB support from the BIOS is enabled, you just need to click the following in Lantronix
Interfaces -> Keyboard/Mouse
Check "Force USB Full Speed Mode", this fixed the issu........
This is something I often setup for clients because it's very helpful for people in datacenters, this allows custom OS installs on demand, you can customize it more by using kickstart etc.. but here's a base I use before customizing more:
This little script below will install everything you need to get booting by PXE Linux.
It also assumes you set a local IP (be sure not to overwrite your existing IP) on eth0:0 (note the :0) as 192.168.1.10 and it........

It should show your different audio interfaces, choose Pulse Audio and move it to the top of the list, do the Apply, OK and manually quit Amarok (remember to close it from the tra........
Basically the two main types of distros are Debian and RHEL/Centos based. I'm just going to give a quick overview of how the configuration of IP interfaces works in Debian/Centos based distros.
*Just one thing to remember, when setting IPs statically you have to manually specify a DNS server in /etc/resolv.conf (since DHCP is what normally does it automatically)
The IP (DHCP &........
