wp6. sh iptables: Too many links.


Recommended Posts

Hi, just got my nano and is trying to get it up and running. So far everything has worked out as planed but the internet sharing part of the video did not go smooth.

I run the script as in the video. Using guided mode.

After the run i checked if internet was shared and it was not. Ran it a gain loading config.

Looks like it runs ok but in the end i can see this line from iptables: Too many links.

And it allso looks like dns goes down on my machine.

Using Linux Mint 19.

do you have your firewall enabled?  Ive always had to disable my firewall to get it working on mint.

Firewall is off.

looks like it the command "iptables -X" that fail whit the error. 

The script just continue if any of them fail and delete all routes in the table. Adjusted the script so it exit early but not sure what the error means yet as im new on iptables.

This indeed solved DNS issues on my Ubuntu 19.04 but only partially. Somehow my interface was showing a different IP than the one that comes by default on the nano:

enx00c0caa7cb1c: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet  netmask  broadcast
        ether 00:c0:ca:a7:cb:1c  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
        RX packets 2215  bytes 1445895 (1.4 MB)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 2732  bytes 536442 (536.4 KB)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0

That is instead of the expected I changed the default route on the pineapple -> Networking -> Default route and it all went smoothly from there. Damn that was hard to find!
