CentOS 5 Networking :: Can Ping Server Network But Cannot Share Resources
Feb 15, 2010
I have OpenVPN running successfully on a CentOS Linux server. All remote clients connect without a problem and can ping the server LAN (10.5.0.0/24) . The server address is
10.5.0.1. All network shares on the server are available to the remote clients via SAMBA shares and this works well.The problem is that I am unable to get the remote clients to access services on the LAN clients. For example, there is a webserver running on a Windows XP PC (on the server LAN @ 10.5.0.2) with no firewall enabled. The remote VPN clients can ping this webserver at 10.5.0.2, but cannot browse the webserver at [URL]. All clients on the server LAN can however browse the webserver. The remote clients are using Windows XP and VISTA with OpenVPN 2.1.1.
I am new to VPNs and networking, but from my research, it seems as if this may be a routing issue. I would appreciate any help you may give in getting the remote clients to access the services on the LAN clients (other than the server @ 10.5.0.1).
I am trying to share a couple of resources from my fedora 12 box to a windows vista, using samba. It seems absolutely fine to share any folder but as soon as I am trying to share a folder which is used as a mount point windows cannot access this folder. I get the following message from windows:"the network cannot be found". This must be due to some permission, but I cannot find which one.
Note that windows can access the folder but as soon as the device is mounted I v#can see the folder in windows but cannot access it. Here is a copy of the smb.config file:
I have configured (bind) my server with multiple static IP. I can ping the main IP from outside but not the other IP . I can ping all the IP from localhost but not from the internet. I do not have any external firewall or blocking device. server is directly connected via modem. If anyone could advice me for why i cannot ping other Ip's
I have installed Centos 5 on a virtual machine (esx4i). I set it to obtain an IP address from the DHCP sever, which is a broadband router, it has been given an IP address of 10.10.11.159 the router is 10.10.11.1 but I can't ping the router and I can't get any access to the network! I have a SCO Openserver server on the same physical box and it works fine so I know the network card & cable is ok.
I run a server that is connected to several other boxes in a private network (192.168.0.0). I have had no problems previously, but upon a reinstall of Debian squeeze I have no connectivity to the private network: a ping of other addresses on that network fail. Ping and connection to outside world is fine. This box is configured similarly to another on this private network which connects successfully. I have quadruple-checked all my basic information. I post my ifconfig below of the malfunctioning device, then the ifconfig for equivalent nic on a box connected succesfully to the private network.
1.Could it be a cable problem? (I don't see how since the cables have not been changed I do not believe since my reinstallation).
2. What about the difference in the last lines of eth1 below and eth2 of the successful box. Is it significant that the bad eth1 reads Memory:fc3a0000-fc3c0000
I posted it on another forum, but could not get response,So I have this cenOS, Ubuntu and windows operating system running on virtual machines.Now I gave them manual ip address, both ubuntu and windows machines can ping the default gateway, but not the CentOS.It should forward 0.0.0.0. to my cisco router address(192.168.5.254),
I am not an expert and have only been managing my server not too long. My server is running kind of slow so someone suggested running the 'top' command via shell, and I found a few things using major resources, but I don't know what they are or how to fix them. can someone suggest some things.
So, I have an Virtual Machine running CentOS 5.4. It sits behind a hardware firewall which also does NAT'ing. I've set up plenty of these, so I know for sure the firewall and NAT rules are set up correctly. From the host, I can ping anything in my subnet and the gateway. But I can't ping anything else beyond the gateway. I can perform DNS queries and when I try to ping, it finds the appropriate IP address.But from the outside, I can ping the PUBLIC address (It's a 1 public to 1 private address NAT, not 1 public to multiple private). I've tried it with IPTABLES on and off, with no change.
I have Linux server with VMware Server 1.0.8. When I creating a virtual machine, I can not "send" a PING to the virtual machine. In the virtual machine, I have installed CentOS 5.3 (32bit). In the virtual machine I have defined the addresses IP. So, whey I can't "sent" a ping to the virtual machie? I have to set something on the Linux server?
I'm having a strange problem with my network connection/DNS. I turn computer the on and it recognizes and connects to wireless or wired but I can't access any Internet resources or my router. If I ping the default gateway, I get no response and I get DNS errors from any network services that run at start up. If I stop and start the network daemon then it all works fine until the next time I turn on my laptop. It does this for both wireless and wired connection.
I've tried to edit the network interface information in YaST but it says that configuration is handled by knetworkmanager and I have no idea where that information is accessed. I should point out that it all worked fine until I tried to connect to open WAP at my school and couldn't so I connected to the wired network. Next morning I had this problem when connecting to my home network. My questions are 1. What could be the cause of this error and 2. where does one configure the network interfaces when using knetworkmanager
This applies to my 2 opensuse PC's, my Windows PC is fine.I can ping a hostname, say "PC1" but I can not ping PC1.domain.local (even the host PC can not ping it's own FQDN). When I ping just the hostname the ping stats even list the FQDN.Onto the next issue, since all my PC's, have the domain prefix domain.local, my Synology can not. I can ping it's IP and that is it. I can resolve it's name with nmblookup just fine tho and that is what is killing me. How is this not resolving.Even weirder, I can browse to "Synology" in Network Servers under places on the slab.
I'm running Fedora 14 and when I'm surfing the web, it seems to lag in between pages. I don't think its my net connection, I just wiped windows 7 off my system for Fedora and it did not suffer from the same lag issues.I've tried adding in google's alternate dns server 188.8.131.52 but it didn't seem to fix the issue. I ran into this issue a couple years back on Ubuntu 8.1 or something like that, and I never could find out what I needed to configure.My second problem is that when I try to connect to other Windows systems on my wlan or wired connection, it gives the error "failed to retrieve share list from server". I'm not experienced in networking, can someone explain this to me?
I can ping the router, but I cannot ping anything outside of the network. The ping just sits there and eventually times out, no error message. I cannot download updates and it is the only box inside the network having any issues accessing the internet. I am running 10.10 server. I can get a list of packages on the update server, but not download them, it appears to be in an incoming issue. I'm using a motorola Netopia router in bridge mode with a netgear SRXN3205 as a router. Again every other system can download fine. I have tried running on one nic, no help dhcp, static again does nothing. I can pulls host [URL].. and I get
It may be worth noting that I set the box up at home on a dlink router and it worked fine, however I am confused why it is the only system on the network having these issues every other box can ping just fine.
I am a new user to Linux but in the last couple of months gained some Idea about it,I am trying to set up a small network in my office having 3 windows xp PCs, two fedora10 PCsI have an adsl router with 4-port hub connecting to the internet, one switch (say sw1) and one linux PC (say linux1) is connected directly to the router, the three win xp PCs are connected to switch sw1.all the above is working fine, I am able to get connected to Internet In all the systems, and able to network among all the above four.Now I want to make the linux1 as a proxy server for, hence I added another network card into it connected it to another switch sw2, which is connected to another linux pc (say linux2).
I have tried a hundred things, and googled an equal no. and finally posting it here.In order to reduce confusion I have disabled DHCP in all machines, and given static ips insteadNetworkManager was not happy about it, hence to fix my static IP i disabled NetworkManager ('chkconfig NetworkManager off')
I have 4 centos5 apache webservers all on the same network, recently, 2 of the webservers have stopped being able to ping or browse one particular website where feeds are obtained from this site. I have checked and firewall and selinux settings are disabled. The two webservers are able to ping and browse other sites. Dns settings are the same for all 4 servers. traceroute for working and not working webservers are the same.
I have two CentOS servers on the same LAN. One is CentOS 4.7 the other 5.2 They both also have a WAN interface to the same remote network. On CentOS 4.7 I can ping the remote network through the CentOS 5.2 server. i.e. ping -I eth0 remotehost On CentOS 5.2 I can NOT force the ping to go out the CentOS 4.7 server without over riding my routing tables to make eth0 a more direct route than the eth1 route.
On 5.2 If I do the ping -I eth0 remotehost, and a tcpdump on eth0, the outbound ping will not be going out eth0, he overrides it and sends it out eth1. In fact, on CentOS 4.7 if I do not have a route to the remote network through the other server (turn proxy arp off on the 5.2 machine), I will get "Destination Host Unreachable". I would ideally like to get the 5.2 machine to behave the way the 4.7 machine does.
My real life application for this is that I have a CentOS server in a location that controls access to the Internet. There is another router on the netowrk that handles traffic back to our corporate office. the CentOS server also has the ability to get to the corporate office. I ping the corporate office through eth0 to find out if the link through the other router is indeed up and active. I want to make this a CentOS 5.2 server but alas, I can not tell if the other route is up or not.
just finished installing Centos5 and I had no problems installing it. But when I tried to connect to the internet, the trouble began.My network card is installed and the status is "OK". The network card is a "Realtek RTL 8168C(P)/8111C(P)".The status of the device said "Inactive" and when I tried to activate it, it came with an error: Failed; no link present. Check Cable?Now the cable is connected as it should be.So next step I did is put in a static IP. Now the activation works fine.However I still have no internet. I can't even ping to my router!I need some new drivers for my graphics card too, but first I need the network to work, than I can download other stuff..
Sometimes my file share network stops working,and will then work again.I'm lost with this problem. The server pc is a Zenwalk pc.The other pc is a win7 pc. This error only occurs on Zenwalk. When i run puppy from the live cd the file shares are always visible,without fail.Under puppy i use pNethood. When the ping command is used there is no problem, and the pc name can be pinged.This is shown below:
I have a somewhat complicated network setup that I am testing on an internal network. I have the following route setup:
PC Client (192.168.2.100) --> Router (192.168.2.1) --> DSLAM (on our internal network) --> PPPOE Server (192.168.9.1) on Linux Ubuntu 8.04 on interface card eth2.
On the same Linux Ubuntu Machine on interface card eth1 (static IP 192.168.5.100), I have an Asterisk SIP server plugged into it. SIP Server = 192.168.5.101 (static) I need the PC client (192.168.2.100) to register via SIP soft phone to register on the SIP server (192.168.5.101). From the PC client I can ping as far as the eth1 interface (192.168.5.100)...but cannot ping the SIP Server (.101).
From the SIP server (184.108.40.206)...I can ping 192.168.5.100, I can ping 169.254.5.228 (Eth2:avahi), but not sure what that is. I cannot ping the pppoe default gateway (192.168.9.1), which I think you cannot anyway. No firewalls are running. My IPtables I cleaned out totally. I think it might be as simple as a route add, but I really have no clue. Tried building a virtual bridge using brctl LINUX betweeh eth1 and eth2, but that made things worse (could not ping anything after that)
I have ubuntu 10.4 running on both my desktop and laptop. Both machines are connected to the router in wireless mode with Wifi.I can access internet from both machines without any issues, however I cant ping one machine from another. (and vice versa)
I have two linux servers, I tried to ping from one linux box to another and vice versa but error message is "connect: Network is unreachable" Where as If I tried from windows machine I am getting the reply from both the servers. C:Documents and Settings>ping bnkprod

I am looking for a gigabit network card for my centos 5.4 server. I am looking for something known to work well with linux. I have been on the bestbuy site and I found a DLink (DGE-530T) card with support for linux from the vendor but after reading feedback from users with that card I am not so sure it is linux friendly. I am now thinking of buying online.
ok, we had to move one of our databases due to failing hardware. This box is newer than the old but it's just dog slow. 1st I thought it was mysql but now I am realizing it's the network. As a test, I tried copying a remote file to that box and the old server (located at the same co-lo, same provider), same switch, etc.Here are the results;
Old server: access_log.1 100% 4192KB 1.4MB/s 00:03
New Server: access_log.1 100% 4192KB 72.3KB/s 00:58
So now I see why people were complaining about webpage load times, etc. I can't figure out why the network latency. I looked around a bit, see below for some things, I thought mtu, nic speed, etc.
mii-tool shows; eth0: 100 Mbit, full duplex, link ok eth1: 100 Mbit, full duplex, link ok[code].....
Are there other things I can type to test or provide more feedback somehow to get more information.
