Debian Configuration :: Nautilus Can't Browse Local Network
Apr 21, 2010
I have a new Debian 5.04/ppc install on a G5 tower and it's not able to browse the local network. The clean install could see the network, then I installed the Samba server, and it hasn't worked since. Samba server never really worked, and I'm guessing I messed something up. I've reinstalled network-manager, and removed / reinstalled samba.
I have a small home network (6 machines) running wired and/or wireless, pc/mac and linux.This machine can PING other machines by name and IP address.This machine can PING itself by name and IP address
Other machines can PING this machine by IP address only, not by name.Nautilus network browser only shows the "Windows Network" icon, which, when clicked, shows an empty window.I've got networking up fine on all my other machines but this one is stumping me.
I've configured Debian 8.3 on AMD quad cores Opteron, for change, i've choise XFCE4. The desktop work fine, but thunar doesn't browse my local network, i cannot see my other computer ! I think there are missing an applet ? but whitch it ?
Like the forum for #1I'm using debian 5.0 with a modem to connect to the internetand eth1 to network my home computers. When I try to browse the internet with Konqueror, I have to disable eth1 then wvdial just to browse the internet. How do I fix this?Note: My resolv.conf has my primary DNS address in it, for my ISP (nameserver 18.104.22.168) and so on.
I have a external harddisk attached to my linux PC.I have a laptop having windows 7 on my network.I want to to be able to open up the folder in the external harddisk(linux partition) and check the files from my laptop. People suggest samba. But I am not able to configure correctly. Please excuse me and give me few detailed instructions.
Suddenly having trouble browsing the Windows Network with Nautilus.I can still mount a windows/samba share with cifs, but I don't want to do this because symbolic links within in the share do not work correctly. I can still browse the share with smb:// in a web browser.
Two nights ago I decided to switch from testing to unstable. Since then I am able to connect to the internet, but not to anything on my local network. I am unable to ping this computer from another one on the network. This computer is connected through wireless. I thought that something might have changed with iptables that was blockinghe localnetwork. I tried to "flush the iptables settings with "iptables -F". Since that didn't work I uninstalled iptables (which didn't work and I reinstalled iptables). In my browser I tried to connect to my router and that doesn't work either.I connect to this computer daily through ssh and connect to a NAS. Without ssh and my NAS I feel kinda lost
I'm trying to set up a *simple* MTA in my local network. The only thing it should be able to do is send system / daemon mails to admin@mylocaldomain. but at the moment I'm pretty much overwhelmed by everything i *should* know in order to set up this MTA
I configured exim to be in "internet"-mode. now i have a variety of errors I can choose from (and a variety of solutions that i don't like ).. my test is always an email from test01.mylocaldomain:
echo "Hello World" | mail -s Testmail admin@mylocaldomain
- after running the config, i get the error: admin@mylocaldomain: all relevant MX records point to non-existent hosts --> google says, edit and udpate update-exim4.conf.conf --> dc_relay_domains='mylocaldomain' --> but this exim installation should not be a relay at all. it should only be able to SEND (to this domain), not deliver it. or do i get something wrong?
- after i added dc_relay_domains='mylocaldomain', i get --> SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<admin@mylocaldomain>: host mail.mylocaldomain [192.168.x.x]: 550 5.1.1 <root@mylocaldomain>: Sender address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table --> but i don't want to create an account on the mailserver for the SENDER...
- ...so i thought, i'd config exim with the domain "test01.mylocaldomain" (including the server name), so that the sender is clearly from another domain than the mail server handles (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org).. but then i get this --> SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<admin@mylocaldomain>: host mail.mylocaldomain [192.168.x.x]: 450 4.1.8 <email@example.com>: Sender address rejected: Domain not found
I really just wanna send mails in my local network.
I have three Debian systems running, along with several XP laptops, PS3 and two DirecTV systems. I use two of the three Debian systems as media servers, and the third is an older system mostly for playing around with. My home network is running fine with the following nuisance. The two newer Debian (Lenny) systems are <barney> and <mitzi>, the older is named <oscar>, running Debian Sarge 3.1. From either locally or remote login to <barney> and <mitzi> I can ssh into either of the other two systems, however when logged into <oscar> I cannot ssh by name to either of the other systems. e.g. ssh: mitzi: Temporary failure in name resolution..However, from <oscar> I can ping outside my network (e.g. ping www.google.com) with no problems.I can also ssh to the other systems via IP address, just not by name.
I've compared the /etc/ssh/ssh_config, /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/ssh/sshd_config and other files between the two systems and not seeing anything peculiar. arp, route, etc., don't show different behavior between the systems either.
At home I have two computers running linux connected to the same router. I would like to be able to connect them so that I can move files between them and execute simple commands. What is the most simple way to access a prompt on the other computer or to mount a partition currently used by the other computer?Using the www it is possible to connect two computers using ssh, but it should be easier to do this over the LAN, right? I have been googling a lot but not found anything.
I have installed apache php and mysql on my pc during debian installation... some of my friends complain they cannot access my webserver from their home and it's available only within my local network... Please help regarding this...
After doing updates to get current with Debian Jessie, I've noticed very annoying network problems going on.
This all happened while also setting up a media server box which led me to much confusion, much of what is described here [URL] ....
I've started this new thread to try to diagnose and properly take care of this specific problem alone:
Browsing the internet becomes very slow, unbearably to the point everything keeps loading up forever. This only happen while having a torrent application opened, the effects are almost immediate, closing the application and browsing resumes as normal.
How about throttling back torrent? This does not work, it even doesn't even need be at top speed. With bare minimum connections and speed will still lead browsing to a crawl.
Even so, every other device on the network is un-affected, router and other PCs continue to browse and respond very well, making it a specific on the computer in question (but also happens on my other debian jessie machine).
Can I even reach the internet? Yes I can, and this is the weird part... I can ping, solve DNS and almost everything else without issues, the only thing affected is actually browsing the internet.
I'd even setup DNS cache with dnsmasq to see if it could speed things up. Disabled ipv6, and trying pretty much every method I could find.
Having pretty much ruled out dns problems and internet connectivity, I'm at a loss for what to look for and try. Only symptom I can describe now is that the browser will start to load up webpage but never completes... but only while torrent is active.
My current setup:
I'm on Debian Jessie, a desktop with eth manually connected. Using dnsmasq for dns caching. Disable ipv6 on the network (by the way, it keeps disabling it self I dunno why).
Running KDE with ktorrent as the client. The same thing happens on my setup media box, also Debian but with deluged running instead.
Browser in question are Firefox and Chrome, both have issues with this.
Turns out it was just a setting in my own router, that apparently limits numbers of connections made, meaning while torrent is working other connections were sure dead.
But it also happens when lots of connections are being made in other ways too. The router in question is Humax HG100R-L2, provided by my ISP. The setting is in the firewall section called IP flood detection.
I thought the standard was that rc.local was executed before GDM and Nautilus loads. For some odd reason, my Lenny desktop is loading Nautilus before it decides to execute rc.local. This is causing me some serious problems.
I am working on a Debian 2.6.26-19 Distribution with exim4 as MTA. After a system restart a problem occurred with delivering emails to local addresses. These local addresses use a 1and1 mailserver for email. The MX records for the local domain are set correctly but exim does not use a DNS lookup for these addresses because it identifies them as local addresses. I figured this out by executing the exim4 -d -bt command. The dns lookup part of the result looks like this (I replaced the actual address with placeholders):
The eventual result of the exim4 -d -bt command is: [user]@[domain.ext] is undeliverable: Unrouteable address How can I make sure, that exim4 makes a DNS lookup for the local addresses instead of skipping it? I know that I have to edit a exim4 configuration file, but I could not figure out which and how.
I have a lab of 10 computers with ips from 192.168.1.120 to 192.168.1.130 the server's Ip is 192.168.1.116When I am on client computer I type the server's Ip address on the browser and it works. All i want is that instead of entering my servers Ip I could just enter an address like: example.lan
We are in the process for Integration Network with our Government Network. Let say that our network are 192.168.0.0/24 And the Government network are 10.0.0.0/8 I want to know if the local network can resolve the internet names in Government Network. I am using Bind for DNS.
I have installed apache using the appropriate 'yum' commands.I didn't experience any problems during the installation.My problem is that I am not able to see any php file I created myself (I have installed php too).The only php file I can see is the one I created using this:
Code: su -c 'echo "<?php phpinfo(); ?>" > /var/www/html/index.php' Then I am able to see the information from the above file.

I removed my .gnome and .nautilus folders and .notifier file. it is working now. I do not know exactly which of these 3 fixed it but I hope this might help someone else!I have some major issue with nautilus which is preventing me from loogging in into my system which is kind of criticle this weekend.I'm running Squeeze with latest updates.
The problem:Today gnome gave some problems caus my taskbar was suddently gone. I couldn't get it back to i reinstall gnome-desktop and updated my whole system. At the update some yes/no questions on a blue screen asking me to restart cups etc had corrupted yes/no buttons. Weird character sets were shown. Well that can happen sometimes i thought.After reinstalling gnome i can't login anymore. My screen keeps flashing while it shows the loading icon of the mouse.Anyone got suggestions? I can't find similar problems on the internet, only problems that happen while already logged in. In my case the segfault prevents gdm starting! Maurice
What would be necessary to run an ftp server (or a web server) on my local PC so that other people I know could access it and download stuff from it? The idea is to share photos, videos etc with friends/family where the files are a bit too big for email. (All 100% legal, own-content, no copyright issues, needless to say). Security isn't that vital, I'd just put files in the ftp directory, email the link and let them download the files, then remove them again. No passwords are required, and no uploads.
Obviously there's the problem that both computers have to be on at the same time, and I assume I'd have to change my computer's firewall settings and my router's settings to allow the traffic through, but my question is more basic than that - is it even possible? My internet connection is through a router, and as I understand it, my router has the IP address, not my computer. So I can connect through my router using my computer's IP address, but only my router knows my computer's IP address, and all the rest of the internet just sees my router and its IP address. Which means (I think) that I can't just send my IP address for my family to connect to, because that only gets them as far as my router, and the router would have no idea what to do with such requests. Am I right so far?
So is there any way for my family's computers to contact an FTP server or a web server running on my computer? Or does it require some kind of intermediary server to act as a traffic-forwarder? Is there such a thing? I'm assuming that setting up little private torrents would be fiddly and inefficient. Or would it be better/simpler to use one of the free filesharing services and put up with the (sometimes not too family-friendly) adverts associated with them?
I'd like configuring NTP service on my Lenny Debian client to retrieve time from my local NTP server, so I thought to configure /etc/ntp.conf and to insert into crontab this command 'ntpd -qg', which is indicated in man. Can I run ntpd service to synchronize time for my client, avoiding to listen on port 123, beacuse my scope is to alignment time on client and to not give service to others, for this scope there is ntp server !
I can't get past the "scp -p id_rsa.pub" step; ssh fails with "Could not resolve hostname" errors. Both machines are connected with a hub. I've also tried using the IP address in the place of hostnames with no avail. Both machines can ping eachother successfully.The server has the "openssh-server" package installed.
