ZykoticK9unop, visof DO NOT edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg00:54
unopZykoticK9, no one's advocating that, are they?00:55
ZykoticK9unop, unless you specifically explain your statement people are going to assume that grub.cfg is a replacement of menu.lst00:55
unopZykoticK9, and the same applies for menu.lst too - editing it is somewhat futile. That said, there's no reason to not dive into the file and understand it.00:56
titan_arkokay sorted out my alsa problem, could someone tell me how i can upgrade to lucid beta?00:57

unoptitan_ark, /join #ubuntu+100:57
titan_arkunop, k00:58
Typos_King....... afaik grub.cfg IS the replacement for menu.lst, there's no replacement for /etc/default/grub templates cuz from what I recall older grub didn't use any templates, at least I didn't bother checking much, I always edited menu.lst and grub.cfg with np00:58
unoppicard1421,  both those files have to do with local resolution -- they don't affect how the outside world sees your IP address or DNS name00:58

unopTypos_King, yea, that works until you do a kernel upgrade ...00:59

The latest version of everything is not always useful if you aim for stability. Please see http://geekosophical.net/random/worksforme/01:01
flyingtabmowi have, it checks out fine01:02
picard1421my question is what do i have to do to point zimbra to my DNS in setup etc?? and what about the resolv and hosts files because the MX record has to point to my site? (which it should then be a Cname? because the IP changes??)01:02
visofplease can any one help01:02
gotttoflyingtabmow: next thing to check is the path to the file in autostarted apps01:03
Typos_Kingunop:   indeed, is exactly what I think about the advice on no touching it, I do advice to back it up and that it gets overwritten, but I think there's overcaution and I'd say overzealousy on the warnings there, and yes, I do think they also use the works-for-me lines too, as much as I do, so01:03
unoppicard1421, well, the way DNS works - you shouldn't need to change anything i.e. you should be able to use the existing DNS servers in your resolv.conf for resolution01:04
flyingtabmowi know the file is running, i have it writing to a file on the desktop to make sure01:04
flyingtabmowmy only guess is that something else is loading a different modmap file after mine01:04
unoppicard1421, in otherwords, it sounds like you need to ensure that your dynamic DNS provider is setting up your MX records properly01:04
picard1421yea basically01:04
flyingtabmowwhen i run it from the terminal it works as expected01:04
picard1421because my resolv conf should be pointing to my Dynamic DNS?01:04
picard1421im not relaly sure what i have to have in the hosts file ?01:05
picard1421or resolv file?01:05
buttons840how can i set the CLASSPATH environmental variable for java?01:05
buttons840export CLASSPATH = path?01:05
Typos_Kingbuttons:  yes01:05
unoppicard1421, the hosts file does nothing for DNS .. you can't have it return MX records.01:05
picard1421ok what does the hosts file do?01:06
seyfarthAnyone know the keyboard shortcut to switch between channels on xchat?01:06
unoppicard1421, just make sure your dynamic DNS provider can update MX records too .. then everyone in the world (including you whereever you are) can see the change.01:06
picard1421no i understand.. but what does the resolv.conf and hosts file do .. what if i had them blank persay??01:06
autobotseyfarth: on irssi it's /window next or /window # maybe similar01:07
picard1421im confused why i need them and somewhat confused am i pointing them to an External IP or do i point them
seyfarthautobot: thanks01:07
picard1421so like mysite.org should be in the hosts file? and pointed somewhere?01:07
autobotseyfarth: np01:07
unoppicard1421, the hosts file does very simple name-to-IP translation --- no complex DNS information like A, CNAME and MX records.  The resolv.conf is a list of DNS servers your machine uses to then go query those servers to do DNS resolution.01:07
Untitled_onlyhello, can anyone help me enable window grapic?01:08

Typos_Kingseyfarth:     IIRC,  unless  you set the keybindings.... lemme think... I've use ctrl-pgup and pgdn, but I think it also does Alt and a channel letter combo01:08
picard1421and then in the hosts file i can have localhost and

RickJoneshow do you use ntfsundelete?01:09
Untitled_onlyI'm trying to enable graphics on a old computer01:09
unoppicard1421, right, yes.  if zimbra wants to query the MX record for your domain/DNS name -- it should go about it normally i.e. query google's DNS servers first and so on until it finds your Dynamic DNS provider -- which if setup properly should return the right IP addresses for the MX record.01:09

Craig_DemMirc on Linux is pointless when you have a brilliant native app in xchat.01:44

[B]lack[D]ragoNi am trying to help someone over voip btw, so yeah its a little hard for me also03:24
acicula[B]lack[D]ragoN: well 169 means the cable is connected to something i suppose, but the ip means dhcp times out03:24
[B]lack[D]ragoNacicula: correct. connected and timing out...but the question is, why.03:25
Gran_GerV3RR3Z what do you see?03:25
acicula[B]lack[D]ragoN: well my guess would be cables, cables, cables in uplink instead of switch port03:25
acicula[B]lack[D]ragoN: does the network applet animate a small rotatin circle thingy if you plug unplug the cable?03:25
Gartralwhats up with open office defaulting to the Black Knight font? numbers aren't working at all in that font?03:26
rhineheart_mhello... what to check if I can't connect to the net but others can (windows).. maybe a problem with dns.. thans..03:26
[B]lack[D]ragoNwell, considering there are about 6 computers in the router... an uplink to the modem is present or i wouldn't be talking to him ;)03:26
[B]lack[D]ragoNacicula: working via terminal, not gui03:26
acicula[B]lack[D]ragoN: running dhclient by hand then?03:26
[B]lack[D]ragoNim thinking theres an issue with the interfaces03:27
acicula[B]lack[D]ragoN: well maybe he has a switch or a modem with an ethernet uplink or something03:27
[B]lack[D]ragoNbut again, over voip, i cant see it myself03:27
aciculawell if you have an interface the driver works, though the card could be broken03:27
aciculamy money is still on improper cable/wireing though03:27
[B]lack[D]ragoNwell, i think its more likely, that its not configured properly03:27
aciculatry assigning a static ip03:27
StarTecis there nothing i can do to change my 600x800 video03:27
aciculaand ping the router ip03:28
[B]lack[D]ragoNalready tried a static ip lol03:28
aciculano joy?03:28
rhineheart_mwhat to check if I have correct dns records?03:28
acicula[B]lack[D]ragoN: then its the cabling, have him/her yank a working system cable and put it in that port?03:28
[B]lack[D]ragoNthe card is showing up properly in ifconfig, and in lspci now, its just assigning the wrong ip address03:28
terry_bjwebb: You can assign the IP address manually.03:29
aciculahe said he tried that already03:29
[B]lack[D]ragoNterry_: yes, thats a static ip, and already done so03:29
ShazbotMcNastyhe said he tried that already03:29
terry_[B]lack[D]ragoN: Can you pring the router?03:30
[B]lack[D]ragoNterry_: no.03:30
[B]lack[D]ragoNhe just checked the cables, they are fine03:30
ShazbotMcNasty[B]lack[D]ragoN, [B]lack[D]ragoN then you've got a bad connection to the router03:30
terry_[B]lack[D]ragoN: Then you have a hardware problem.03:30

ShazbotMcNasty[B]lack[D]ragoN, You've got a bad connection to router03:30
FishsceneWhat happens when you get a DHCP address?03:30
acicula[B]lack[D]ragoN:swapthe cable with another port on the router03:30
terry_[B]lack[D]ragoN: Can you ping the IP address that you assigned to the NIC?03:30
ShazbotMcNastyeven if router is not connected to the internet, you can still ping the router03:31
meowbuntuhi what is the ubuntu default gnome install app called03:31
[B]lack[D]ragoNits assigning a 169 ip instead of a 19203:31
Zenkercan someone tell me the image formats that ubuntu will allow for backgrounds or where to find such information?03:31
rhineheart_mI can ping the router03:31
ShazbotMcNastymeowbuntu, that question makes no sense03:31
FishsceneThat means it's not getting an IP address. DHCP is either disabled on the router or there is a hardware issue (such as a bad cable)03:31
meowbuntugnome has been removed somehow while uninstalling other apps03:31
ShazbotMcNastymeowbuntu, but you can install 'ubuntu-desktop'03:31

magicvibescan someone give me a little guidance, pleeeeeeze -- i have an issue with my Ubuntu 9.10 x32 -- it WILL NOT boot up after I installed gdm_2-28.tar.gz with ./configure command ---- WHAT DO I DO?03:31
meowbuntuah thats it.03:31
[B]lack[D]ragoNterry_: i am trying to get it working under dhcp, not static03:31
FishsceneIs DHCP enabled on the router?03:32
ShazbotMcNastymagic_ninja420, why did you reinstall gdm?03:32
acicula[B]lack[D]ragoN: yeah but if static does work you know its not the cabling/card03:32
[B]lack[D]ragoNwhen he tries to restart the network now, it says "the interface eth0 is not configured"03:32
terry_[B]lack[D]ragoN: sudo ifconfig eth0 ; ping
[B]lack[D]ragoNacicula: more likely he is lost :D03:32
ShazbotMcNastymagic_ninja420, can you reinstall gdm using 'sudo apt-get reinstall gdm'03:33

magicvibesShazbotMcNasty, well I was trying to change/edit my Login Screen with Login Manager and I was under the assumption (im new), after doing some reading, that i needed to install gdm to utilize the login manager --03:33
terry_[B]lack[D]ragoN: sudo ifconfig eth0 ; ping
ShazbotMcNastymagic_ninja420, gdm is already installed03:33
[B]lack[D]ragoNterry_: no, because there is an interface error03:33
magicvibesShazbotMcNasty, unfortunately, im magicvibe lol and not ninja03:34
terry_[B]lack[D]ragoN: What error?03:34
ShazbotMcNastymagic_ninja420, yes do 'sudo apt-get install gdm' or 'sudo apt-get reinstall gdm'03:34
[B]lack[D]ragoNwhen he tries to restart the network now, it says "the interface eth0 is not configured"03:34
acicula[B]lack[D]ragoN: define "restart the network" ?03:34
terry_[B]lack[D]ragoN: mii-tool eth003:34
magicvibesShazbotMcNasty, when i start the computer, it does the "mouse wait loading" symbol and goes no where... how do i get to a terminal?03:35
Maletor[10:32pm] Maletor: Can I just select my /dev/md0 and set that to boot [10:33pm] Maletor: [10:32pm] Maletor: Select dev/vg/root to my root partition and /dev/vg/swap to swap [10:33pm] Maletor: [10:33pm] Maletor: And install. And the kernel will be able to figure out that it needs to assemble a raid and find a lvm to startup?03:35

[B]lack[D]ragoNacicula: restart the networking process you mean?03:38
terry_[B]lack[D]ragoN:  ethtool eth003:38
aciculawoody_: what kind of wireless problem, are you on karmic and have you applied updates after installing yet ? and what kernel error03:38
MaletorIf, from ubiquity, I install onto a LVM that's reading from a software RAID, will my computer be able to boot. As in: will the computer be able to assemble the RAID and find my root partition so it can mount it?03:38
acicula[B]lack[D]ragoN: yeah03:38
[B]lack[D]ragoNthats what i meant :p03:38
magicvibesShazbotMcNasty, [sudo apt-get reinstall gdm] replied E: Invalid Operation -- and [sudo apt-get install gdm] replies already installed03:38

Out_ColdAzh, i use it but ask anyways so we can all see03:39

Azhbut it like keeps reseting itself03:40
terry_[B]lack[D]ragoN: What happens when you do:  sudo ifconfig eth0 ; ping  ?03:40
Out_ColdAzh, when you first install you select a nic03:41
[B]lack[D]ragoNterry_: nothing.03:41
ShazbotMcNastymagic_ninja420, no "./configure" is not the end of the compiling process03:41
ryan_is there a way to schedule recording an internet radio station to an mp3 file?03:41

Azhexcept my eth0 keeps loosing it's static ip03:42
meowbuntuanyone can help me atm03:42
acicula[B]lack[D]ragoN: possible but the troubleshoot terry gave should work, if you set the ip with ifconfig eth0 and ping doesnt work its hosed, if it does work tell your friend to get someone to look at his cabling03:42
[B]lack[D]ragoNterry_: the nic is fine. it works perfectly under windows and centos.03:42

Out_ColdAzh, why you think it's firestarter thats going dhcp?03:43
Azhyeah I guess is not firestarter, its something to with xubuntu03:44
terry_[B]lack[D]ragoN: If you set a static IP to your NIC and then can not ping your own NIC you must have a hardware problem.  NIC must have gone bad.  Did you try setting a static IP and then ping it?  i.e.:  sudo ifconfig eth0  ;  ping

[B]lack[D]ragoNhe has no idea :D04:04

Gneaif he doesn't know what a CIDR is, then what business does he have operating a router? :)04:05
[B]lack[D]ragoNthe router issues the lan ips04:05

Gneaah ok04:05
[B]lack[D]ragoNthe subnet is forwarded through the router04:05
aciculaso can he ping the router04:05
terry_[B]lack[D]ragoN: Sounds like you have a network configuration problem other than the machine you are working on.  It is possible that you have more than one DHCP servers running on that LAN which COULD cause a problem like the one you see.04:05

meowbuntuhold on can i go back to live cd and reset gnome like i have done with grub without reinstalling04:12
Gneameowbuntu: then use apt-get04:12
un214be careful when doing that you remove grub and grub2 from the inside immediately or the next do-release-upgrade will clobber your bootloader04:13
terry_rixxy: dpkg04:13
rixxyterry: what flags need to go with it?04:13
thenetducknot bad04:13
MagicVibesShazbotMcNasty, still around?04:13
Gneameowbuntu: or add the following line to /etc/apt/apt.conf: Acquire::http::Proxy "http://yourproxyaddress:proxyport";04:13
rixxyterry: it would be sudo dpkg -?04:13
MagicVibesShazbotMcNasty, how would I set my xorg.conf to 100% default?04:13

meowbuntui dint have the address it thinks it has. hol on04:14
Gneameowbuntu: I'm just saying, that's where you put it to make it work04:14
un214well it returned me to a working state from a non-working state04:14
[B]lack[D]ragoNok so, having him switch to static and try to define all the stuff....hope this works04:14
terry_rixxy: But if you have the 64bit version currently installed, you probably need to remove it first.04:15
[B]lack[D]ragoNhe said it was giving errors the last time about him not giving enough information, or giving too much...so i dont know04:15
[B]lack[D]ragoNnow its saying no such process set as static04:16
un214fyi, it's a little annoying to start a statement with /04:16
terry_[B]lack[D]ragoN: If he is changing to static by editing the /etc/network/interfaces file, he will need to restart the network afterwards:  /etc/init.d/networking restart04:16
meowbuntuwhat if i dont want a proxy address04:16
jeeezhi, i just installed xfce. it doesn't seem to mount my ntfs partition on its own, whats the command to do that?04:17

gartralterry_: the "problem" is that my mobo has two net wires coming out out of it, and ubuntu doesnt seem to understand what to do when this happens, both are assigned an ip from the router, and i want the system to balence the load across the two nics... like it does in windoze..04:39

juancarlospacoblue316: i hope it works05:25

kermitwhy do i get a new device every time i plug in my phone?  i think i ran out, how do i free them?05:26
knoppiesFishscene, I know some routers allow you to set some IPs in a reserved list (so that it only gives that to a machine with the specified Mac address) but when trying to use it I kept getting "IP IN USE" errors.05:26

Tamnakznomadz_ no, only certain ones. and it's not an error, it's a video of static text05:28
luis_well i would like to change my keyboard05:28
knoppiesFishscene, what router model do you have?05:29
terry_knoppies: Then the router's configuration needs to be changed.  But ..we are not talking about internet access here, we are talking about network configurations and you do not set static IPs inside of the DHCP pool.05:29
knoppiesterry_, I know that. But I also know you can reserve IPs inside the DHCP pool. And Im wondering if its not worth a try.05:29
greezmunkeyQuestion regarding Ubuntu server. Should I go for the 8.04 LTS, or 9.10. It's for a DVR, on an ASUS mb AMD phenom2.05:29

normancleggMaletor i dont mean to be a pain, you're obviously clued, can you tell us how you got to the point of needing to reinstall grub ?  more than 1 OS ?05:59
theadminAedrich: Maybe some of packages you have are dependent on a specific kernel05:59
meowbuntuhoe do i chank device names please06:00
Maletornormanclegg: I did ubiquitous installer, it said fatal, 'grub-install /dev/sda failed' that command returns can't find /boot. My drives are RAID1 /dev/md0 mnting as /boot and RAID5 /dev/md1 mounting on '/' which contains an LVM for root partition and swap.06:01
normancleggblue316  sometimes you can just rearrange the ram in the slots.  not often tho.06:01
MaletorAs of now, I'm getting the alternate installer, because all the guides I'm reading normanclegg, say to use it. I don't think RAID and LVM are compiled into the kernel of a desktop install.06:01
Aedrichtheadmin: thanks06:02
normancleggMaletor  alternate is for SURE the way to start out with what you describe.  the livecd boot image is not.06:02

greezmunkeyQuestion regarding ubuntu-9.10-alternate-amd64.iso, is this the server version, it's supposed to be - but no "server" in the name??07:49
purplegreysilverTell Subitaneous if you know better or think I am wrong. THat was the hard thing, getting started. Hard for me anyway.07:49
rwwgreezmunkey: no, that's the alternate version. the server version has "server" where yours has "alternate"...07:49

pendlarenFrom time to time, my left mouse button stops working. Both touchpad and external mouse. Right button works in both places. Running 9.10. Need to restart gdm to fix it. Annoying when I'm in the middle of something with lots of windows open... Have tried restarting hal and compiz. No luck. Any suggestions?07:58
Avaszrww: shall i install bfw-fwcutter?07:58
normancleggAvasz   it that does not work, come back here.07:58
rwwalmoxarife: because it only exists in Lucid and is the same as bcmwl-kernel-source except more difficult to install?07:58
rwwAvasz: you should install bcmwl-kernel-source and b43-fwcutter07:58
normancleggAvasz  you should not have to use fwcutter07:59
normancleggAvasz that was 2 years ago07:59

cfeddetvaughn: on a single disk? why bother with the partitioning at all?08:04
tvaughnease if reinstall if something goes wrong08:04
normancleggtvaughn  always set a /home partition08:04
cfeddeok.  sure.  then say 50-100G for boot then the rest for /home08:04
cfeddepersonaly I'd rather have /home be a seperate drive/08:05
tvaughnits only a 120gb disk :|08:05
normancleggtvaughn  /boot is not required unless it is.08:05
cfeddetvaughn: I  intended that to be / rather than boot.08:05
tvaughnI can always move it to a seperate disk :)08:05
rwwI use 200MB for /boot, 10GB for /, some for swap, and the rest for /home08:05

Allaunyou can still boot into recovery because of your seperate partition08:09
normancleggtvaughn  none at all in the modern desktop08:09
tvaughnnormanclegg: was that the response to /boot?08:10
normancleggtvaughn  but why make a big deal out of 200mb ?08:10
zetherootvaughn: as I said ... things slow down ... like maximising an open PP presentation from it's minimized position or even pasting a line in here ... it's like the hdd has to constantly play catch up to something for several second before anything happens08:10
tvaughnim not I was simply curious :)08:10
normancleggtvaughn  YOU mentioned /boot08:10
tvaughnno actually I only asked about  / and /home you mentioned boot and I curiously asked why08:10
normancleggtvaughn ok. then ignore any reference to /boot    I've had too much alcohol08:11
tvaughnnormanclegg: where is mine?08:12
zetherooI am noticing also that once I close my 12 or so FF tabs that FF is still consuming up to 200mb of RAM ... when it should only be using about 50mb with a single tab08:12

DragginGood morning...09:32
Avashi failed to install wifi driver for my bcm431109:32
=== Blue-Omega_ is now known as Blue-Omega
DragginI have a debilitating problem... I've upgraded to Karmic recently, but I have this intermittent problem where my screen resolution resets itself to 800x600. Nothing I do gets it back to normal (which is 1280*1024), but last time, after a while and a reboot, it magically fixed itself. Yesterday it was working fine, and this morning, as I switched it on, it defaulted back to 800x600 again. I can't work on this resolution - any ideas? I don't know what to Goog09:34
gotttoDraggin: have you read   /var/log/Xorg.0.log   to see what's up?09:35
Saciddoes anyone know if it is possible to tell freenx to _not_ start a new session but use the already running, local x11 session, like vnc actually, just with the nx protocol?09:36
Draggingottto - it moans about vrefresh and hsync being out of range, but I don't understand why it happens.  Nothing changes on the system, then suddenly, it has a different resolution.  Also dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg does absolutely nothing09:37
gotttoDraggin: try   Xorg -configure09:37
gotttoDraggin: or google your monitor and the right rates to xorg.conf09:38
Draggingottto - I've used that as well, also didn't change anything09:38
DragginIt just eventually came right on its own09:38
Leelahi there09:38
Draggingottto - I understand how I could normally go about configuring a monitor, my problem is that even though it has been configured, it resets itself somehow and I don't know why and no normal xorg steps fixes the problem...09:39
LeelaI try to install a game using wine. i get shown i have 2MB free diskspace which is not enough for the game, while in rl i have 62GB free... any idea what I can do?09:39
Sacidi'm pretty much actually looking for a good and fast solution for accessing my local desktop from remote, i figured vnc is too slow, to crappy a quality and just lags way too much. rdp...well, there isn't really any good rdp service except for xrdp which is just a pain in the ass to configure without documentation provided from the project itself and as far as i know i'd have to restart the x-session anyways, which is not what i want...09:40
gotttoDraggin: time to consider the hardware - graphics card overheating, monitor playing up etc09:40
Draggingottto - It's onboard graphics though, so I hope that's not the case...09:41

knallgalfis there a solution coming up for the sleep bug in ubuntu 9.1?13:23
Guest15949sleep bug?13:24
Guest15949my pc sleeps.... and wakes13:24
knallgalfon some machines the display did not turn on again after the system goes to S2/S313:24
Guest15949sleep and wake is dependant upon hardware13:24
Guest15949not every pc will sleep and wake13:24
knallgalftrue but only partly as it was working fine with 9.04 and with other linux systems as well as Windows13:25
Guest15949some of mine do and some dont13:25
indusvisof, dont know about freebsd menus13:25
Guest15949then use 9.0413:25
jaeCould anyone tell me how I *do* create a regexp map for postfix' smtp_generic_map?13:26
indusvisof, no idea what to do13:26
Guest15949is easiest solution13:26
kinja-sheepknallgalf: Exercise your fingers to turn the monitor off. That's what I usually do (although the sleep/suspend works fine on my machines).13:26
indusvisof, there is a software called os-prober that works great13:26
knallgalfbut not in long run ;)13:26
visofindus thanks anyway13:26
indusvisof, try that apt-get install os-prober13:26
visofindus ok13:26
visofindus i'll try it13:26
knallgalfkinja ^ ^ perfect advice but on a Laptop that's hard13:26
jaepostconf -m tells me it supports regexp, but postmap regexp:/etc/postfix/themap  gives an error13:26
jaeInstalled postfix-pcre, try pcre:, and I get "doesn't support map creation"13:27
BamboozleI'm on my laptop and have one network attached to my ethernet port, and the other to my wireless.  is there any way to have my laptop be the gateway to the internet from the ethernet port to the wireless (the wireless is connected to the internet, the ethernet is not)13:27
erUSUL!ics | Bamboozle13:28
ubottuBamboozle: If you want to share the internet connection of your ubuntu machine with other machines in the network see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InternetConnectionSharing - You may also use !firestarter: http://www.fs-security.com/docs/connection-sharing.php13:28
jaeNot "pcre does not allow map creation"13:28
BamboozleerUSUL: so it's just internet connection sharing13:28
erUSULBamboozle: yes13:28
nibblerBamboozle: just having other clients connect to your wirelessis more complicated, if inet is on wifi its easy13:29
DarsVaedahi i want to be able to connect to a machine via ssh with publickey, what file do i have to edit again to allow this and not only per passwort entry?13:29
jaeDarsVaeda: you have to add the public key from the client machine to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on the server13:30
jaeUsually, I just do "ssh-copy-id", and I'm done...13:30
DarsVaedathere is a option somewhere to enable publickey authentification and disable the password one13:31
DarsVaedacause i can login with password but the key is not accepted even thou copied the right way13:32
tobi_can someone help me get rid of overscan in 1920x1080 resolution ?13:32
BamboozleerUSUL: this is not what I want, they're two seperate networks with their own subnets13:32
tobi_and to get it to work and not fall back to 1680x105013:32
jaeYes, that'd be in /etc/ssh/sshd_config...13:32
tobi_after every boot13:32
DarsVaedaahh thanks!13:32
jaeDarsVaeda: and you can run ssh (the client) with -v (or multiple -v s) for debugging13:33
BamboozleerUSUL one uses 10.x.x.x, the other 192.168.x.x13:33
