The four IPs are 10.1.1.60, 61, 62 & 63
I did it in hosts now. My hosts file in the server (malachite) is as follows:
127.0.0.1 malachite localhost
127.0.1.1 malachite.emerald malachite
10.1.1.60 malachite localhost
10.1.1.61 malachite localhost
10.1.1.62 malachite localhost
10.1.1.63 malachite localhost
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
For the repositories I do use the IP of the network card connected to that
specific machine. I haven experimented with computer names yet.
Interesting enough, if I ping from the server to a connected computer to the
IP that it has been assigned, using, for example
ping -I eth1 10.1.1.91
I do get the correct response. Is not the case when I try to ping from that
other computer back to the server.
Again, all works perfectly if I connect the computer to the integrated
Thank you very much!
Saddly this didn make it work
