In my network I am using the private subnet 192.168.2.0/24
On my Linux Gateway/Proxy etc. I find a lot of entries in the System log which all have this here in common: Martian Source 192.168.0.255 from 192.168.0.20 on dev enp5s12 II header : my PC’s nic
This is very strange as
I don’t use 192.168.0.0/24 at all.
It was send from my pc (MAC address) but the setup looks ok.
Is use on my PC Linux with a VirtualBox with Windows 7 but also configured for 192.168.2.0/24 and the virtual Mac address is different
The density of the “martian attacks” is about 2-3 “attacks” per second, which makes the system log look a bit overloaded.
After changing from OS 12.3 which only ran for a few days to 13.1 I had recently a crash of the at this time fully functional teamviewer and google earth. I can’t run both programs any longer and even a reinstall did not help. Could this be related to the martian story ?
Any ideas what’s wrong there and how I could fix this problem ?
Had the idea to switch in Yast->Network Settings from Network Manager to ifup … and from this moment on I had no more martian sources …
After around 10 minutes without any martian attacks I switched back to Network Mangager and the Martians came back in the same second.
Have compared both setups, have even changed the Network Manager setup in the hope, that whatever is wrong in its setup, it would be repaired by chance if I change something … nada, nix, nothing.
So obviously my Network Manager suffers from DID (Dissociative identity disorder); it lives in 2 different worlds/networks 192.168.2.0/24 (the real world) and in 192.168.0.0/24 (the wrong one,Network managers imagination somewhere on Mars I guess ;))
So have you guys any idea how I can treat my Network Manager and heal it from being DIDI ?
In general I prefer the network manager over that flup thing, as it has a usable gui.
100 points !!! There was indeed a 2. address listed, though I have no idea where it came from. Mhhhh, could have been eventually my son playing on my pc … I deleted this entry and the martian invasion was banned ! :good:lol!
I first have to apologise for false accusation to my son. It was me who has set that ip number.
BUT the circumstances are remarkable:
If one sets in Network manager the mode under IPv4 Address to “Manual”, writes there an IP address and switches afterwards to mode “Automatic (DHCP)”, the entered ip address is kept (good), get’s hidden and** stays active (not good as not obvious) **!
