I have a NAS that was always connected to my computer directly (10Gb) instead of going through my router.
I’ve reinstalled EOS recently, and I can’t connect to it anymore. It’s probably a silly mistake I’m making, but I’ve done everything I could think of in the past 4 hours and couldn’t fix it.
In my previous installed EOS, I used to run the following to initiate the connection:
sudo ip address add 169.254.5.0/24 broadcast + dev ens6f1
And after that, I used to either open
smb://169.254.5.49 or mount it with NFS.
When I check the NAS, it tells me that the ip address is still
169.254.5.49, and that the subnet mask is
255.255.0.0. I don’t know why I had
/24 before, but I tried
/16 as well, and it didn’t work.
This is what I get from the
ip address command:
6: ens6f1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP group default qlen 1000 link/ether 00:1b:21:d7:fb:e9 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff altname enp2s0f1 inet 169.254.5.0/24 brd 169.254.5.255 scope link noprefixroute ens6f1 valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
showmount -e 169.254.5.49 command tells me “clnt_create: RPC: Unable to receive”, ping says that the destination is unreachable, and when I try to open the smb path, the file manager says “no route to host”. I also can’t open the web interface of the NAS.
I guess I simply don’t have an active network between these two devices. What should I do?
Thanks for the help!
