I have two desktop one have rhel 5 and other window xp i am trying to connect both with cross over cable.IP for windows system is 192.168.0.1 IP for linux system is 192.168.0.2 I am able to ping my linux system from windows but unable to ping windows system from linux.
I've got a Laptop with wireless broadband connection which needs to be connected to a desktop machine so that the internet connection could be shared. Both has got Ubuntu 9.1. I don't have a router or a switch. I just need direct connection with a cross over cable.
I am running Ubuntu Linux 9.10 on my laptop and desktop. I would like to transfer files from one to the other using an Ethernet Cross Over Cable. Is there software already installed in the bundle, that would allow me to setup network drives for each machine when the cable is connected. Also how would I setup the configuration.
I have two laptops running fedora 9 (32-bit and 64-bit on each system) and I want to connect them together for sharing files. For this I have a cross cable i.e.,a simple cable that is usually used to connect a PC with ADSL modem.
I am having a problem when I hook my computer up to my tv the desktop is bigger than the screen will allow. Is there a way to shrink the desktop down so that it fits within the screen? I can not find a way to do it on the tv itself... I should also add that the resolution is set to 19201080 and the video card has a vga and dvi port. I am connecting to the tv with a dvi-hdmi cable
I am using ububntu 9.10,and have a cable modem internet connection. All I have is an ethernet cable given to me,and when plugged in a windows machine and fire a browser am redirected to default login page where i can login, but when i plug it into my linux machine,i cant get the same done. In network connections it doesnt shows my autoeth0, i have deleted my existing dsl settings(not autoeth0),made a new wired network,i doubt what should i put into MAC addrs field(i have put my machines mac given by lshw -c network.) What should I put in DHCP client id? Anyways when i click on network connections it says under my wired connections-device not configured properly.
I have a vista computer that is connected to a router via a ethernet cord. The router is connected to the internet.I have a computer installed with Debian that does not have a ethernet port in the back of it. Is there a way that I could connect my Debian computer to the internet through my vista?
I am computer literate but novice in case of linux.I have installed ubuntu.Please tell me how I connect to internet using mobile.how to install cable driver for connecting with mobile.What are installation steps.which rpm is required.
I have an old desktop computer that I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on. I also have a laptop with Windows 7 Pro which is connected wirelessly to the internet. The desktop does not have a wireless card and the modem is in another room. I have a spare ethernet cable, is it possible to connect the Ubuntu desktop to the internet by connecting it to the laptop with the cable? I'm not very good with computers.If this isn't possible, how would I go about connecting the desktop to the internet?
trying to create a "local network" by directly connecting an IBM Thinkpad with Debian Linux installed on it to an Alix computer running Voyager Linux. I'm following a "how to" I found to create a music server, hence the requirement. My issue is I can't get a static IP address to be configured on the Debian machine.I've trawled the net and have found the instructions about editing the /etc/network/interfaces and have tried to do this. First I tried to get DHCP working so I could connect the Debian machine to the net and this proved successful. I edited the interfaces file to look as follows:
# The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp
Then I tried adding a static IP address to the machine. As this is a network purely between two machines I made up the IP addres and used 192.168.0.1 and used a NetMask calculator to give me a NetMask of 255.255.255.254 (I told the calculator there would be 2 machines on the network). I then edited the interfaces file as follows:
# The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback
I re-booted the machine (ifdown eth0 followed by ifup eth0 keeps saying that eth0 hasn't been configured - a problem there that I don't understand), but during boot up time it failed to assign the Static IP address to eth0 and made me go into SU mode. To fix it I simply replaced the interface file with the static IP inputs with the file that had the DHCP entries (I'd made a copy of the DHCP file), and re-started the machine. Everthing came up fine. So the first question is how do I get a static IP address to be assigned to eth0 such that whenever I shut down and restart the machine the static IP address is always loaded?
The second question is around creating the network via the cross over cable. From what I've found via Google, all I should have to do is create a static IP address on the Debian machine and a static IP address on the Voyager machine. Once they're connected by the cross over cable they should see each other. Is that correct, or do I have to do anything else?
I can't get a certain harddrive out of its mounting (screws too tight) , but I want it connected to a different computer. Is it possible to have the harddrive's powercable connected to one computer, and its SATA cable connected to another computer's motherboard? (The powercable is too short to connect it to the other computer.)
how I could file share, or make the whole Hard Drive (HDD) accessible to another computer. The two other computers I have are a Toshiba Laptop with Ethernet and USB, and a iMac Intel with Firewire, USB, and Ethernet. Putting these to use along with:
Three Ethernet Cables Two Printer Peripheral USB Cables The Two Computers A 2GB Flash Drive
That is all I can think of right now. I do not want to use CDs. In a way, I would like to do a network boot. So, how do I get the whole HDD visible to the others computers (either/both) and be able to write to it? I want to put Xubuntu on it, and earse the rest of the Hard Drive. The computers getting this are the iMac G3s and the eMac G4. The eMac has 256MB RAM, 40GB HDD, and a 700MHz processor. Two iMacs have 128MB RAM, 40GB HDD, and a 600MHz Processor. The other iMac is the same as the rest but has a 500MHz processor.
Can Cat5e RJ45 connector crimper be used for Cat 6 connector because I heard cat 6 connector is different from cat 5e connector and also same question for cable tester can cat5e cable tester be used for cat 6 cable?
I developed a test program(my first under linux) some thing like g++ -I$(BOOST_INCLUDE) -L$(BOOST_LIBS) threading.cpp -lpthread -lboostThread -lOtherLib -o threadingTest.out...This thing works in GCC4.5, but to compile it under windows visual studio 2008, do I have to create a new project file and then include all libs? In short, is there any IDE or utility, where I just compile it either on linux or windows without going and modifying project options again and again ?
first of all, i will be glad if i can get prebuild toolchain for target=arm1176jzf-s on host= sparc-sun-solaris2.10. ( i hav browsed but can't find prebuild one) so, i tried to establish by myself i hav established binutils first, but while trying to configure& build gcc(gcc4.4.0) , i was interrupted with following error.. error message: this error has come while building boot strap gcc for cross complier tools chain
checking build system type... sparc-sun-solaris2.10 checking host system type... arm-unknown-linux-gnu checking target system
I have Slackware 13-64 bit and I would like to cross-compile some Fortran and C programs to windows 32 and 64 bit applications. The Linux versions utilize X11 for the graphical users interface. I have tried MINWG but I could not get it to work, either in pre-built binary or source code form. Is there a binary version that works on Slackware 13? Alternatively, is there another method available?
I want to compile a program with the source I already have but I have to add an option. When I run the command ./autogen.sh the terminal returns aclocal not found. Is it a package or something i have to install?
