I'm planning to use Debian as the OS for a firewall machine, which will sit between my internet connection and the rest of my computers. Now my network is all wired, no wireless whatsoever. I'm using the onboard the motherboards cat5 socket which seems to be using the VIA rhine driver and I'm also using a 3com 100MBps card.
I can list the machine spec if you want but it's nothing special, an old Athlon 64 rig with 1gb ram and an OEM motherboard, it all seems to work ok apart from the internet doesn't' seem to work. Lenny seems to detect both cards ok and I even used the net install CD and it managed to download everything using the 3com card.
The strange thing is when I'm in Lenny, I can't seem to connect. I can ping google, but when I try and view a webpage, the browser just sits there with a while screen... Could it be that using 2 network cards is confusing Debian? Right now I've only got the modem hooked up the the 3com card, and nothing connected to the onboard network card.
I just installed Debian 5.0 onto my laptop (Dell e6410) and it appears to boot and run fine, except that it does not recognize the network card (it did not do so during the installation). It also does not seem to recognize the wireless card.I have an ethernet connection, but running ifconfig displays only the local connection.I have tried adding -nomodeset and -noacpi to the boot menu, but that does not seem to change things
I've been using wicd (220.127.116.11 was the latest version on my desktop computer, maybe it got updated) without any problems for a long time. This morning after switching the thing on to read the morning news with a nice hot cup of coffee I got a number of funny Gui system messages: Wicd needs to access your computer's network cards.

I had this issue with Fedora Core 13, so I switched my laptop back to OpenSuse and continued to have the problem. I can do a host lookup for software.opensuse.com and I get a correct response ... Code: linux-edxs:/etc # host software.opensuse.org software.opensuse.org has address 18.104.22.168 linux-edxs:/etc # host download.opensuse.org download.opensuse.org has address 22.214.171.124
Firefox works. Thunderbird finds my mail servers just fine. SSH works. But then when I try to do anything involving software updates or installation, I get ... Code: linux-edxs:/etc # zypper update Retrieving repository 'Updates for openSUSE 11.3 11.3-1.82' metadata  Download (curl) error for '[URL]': Error code: Connection failed Error message: Couldn't resolve host 'download.opensuse.org'
I've seen others here post queries about this, and I'll tell you what it was in my case: our DSL modem's DHCP server returns its own IPV4 address as the DNS server. When I looked at /etc/resolve.conf, I saw "nameserver: 192.168.50.254" on the last line -- the IPV4 address of our DSL modem. I manually inserted "nameserver" lines for our ISP's two actual DNS servers, and everything magically started working. Why this should confuse some software under Linux, but not other software, is a mystery. It also seems to be Gnome-specific (I didn't have this problem with OpenSuse 11.3 and KDE 4).
Ask if they're using Gnome, and ask them to check resolve.conf. A lot of DSL modems and home/small office routers return their own IP address (i.e., the same as the gateway address) for the DNS server on a DHCP query. The solution is to manually edit resolve.conf and put in your ISP's DNS server addresses manually. Incidentally, just my opinion, but Network Manager needs to make this an option. Under Windows, for example, you can select "automatically assign DNS" or you can enter them manually, even if you're using DHCP. It'd be nice if Network Manager permitted that.
Installing Ubuntu Studio failed automatic configuring the network so I need configure it manually. The computer ask for a DOMAIN NAME but I never had configured any Domain. Actualy I had another ubuntu computer. I know the mane of that computer but how can I get the DOMAIN NAME from the other computer?
Total Newb here, sorry. I am pseudo-IT at work and have set up a desktop with Debian 5 (accidentally overwrote Windows in the process, but there you go). We are set up with network printers here (all Windows), and I was wondering how to go about being able to print to one of the network printers from my Linux desktop. Can I even connect to the Windows network with this desktop (it is hooked up)? Understand, I do NOT want to screw up anything on the network - they won't let me play anymore if I do. If I download the Linux driver, what do I do next?
I have a desktop computer running OpenSUSE 11.2 with two network cards installed. I would like to use both cards for connecting to the internet using different networks. The setting would be the following: eth0 is the main (default) card, almost all programs should use this NIC for connecting to the internet. eth1 is used only by a few programs, which have setting for selecting which network interface to use. The two NIC's are connected to different networks, so the IP address of the NIC's, the related subnet masks and gateways are also different.
Saying short, I would like to have the two NIC's as they would be in two separate computers. I can set the IP address and subnet mask of the NIC's. The main problem is that I can only declare one gateway. How can i setup this? I do not use network manager, I configure network cards using yast, but if needed I can of course use ifconfig directly.
I've installed Ubuntu Server 10.10 with two network cards. One for external, and one internal.My problem is that as soon as i activate eth1 (external), i can't access the server from the internal network (eth0)
With these settings i can't reach the internal network from inside.If i disable the gateway on eth1 and enable the gateway on eth0, it works.
I tried to install skype: apt-get install skype but I got the following error: Failed to fetch cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.1a _Squeeze_ - Official i386 DVD Binary-1 20110322-15:11]/pool/main/q/qt4-x11/libqtgui4_4.6.3-4_i386.deb Hash Sum mismatch
I am using open suse 11.1 in my acer emachine laptop. Everything is okay except Network cards are not working. It says that firmware is missing or kernel problems. My network cards are Broadcom network cards. How can I fix it?
Anyway, I've a decent understanding of the various Linux console commands and know how to work my way around a text editor or file system. But I can't seem to fix what's wrong with my computer. I'll list my info here and then discuss the most pressing issues that I need help with.
It's a 17" PowerBook G4, with Airport Extreme (which I understand is a headache all on its own: I'll likely get to that later)
Results of ~$ lspci:
I downloaded the most recent .iso for the PowerPC from [url], specifically the 4.4 GB DVD copy.
During installation, I told it to install only the Desktop Environment and Base System. Installation went through without a hitch, though it failed to connect properly to my Wireless card.
The first issue I encounter after booting is during the login. When logging in as a non-root user, I'm told to change my password immediately (root enforced). I've done this every time I've logged in. Immediately after when I log in I'm told that the system clock is wrong: It's currently set to Jan. 1, 1970. If I try to change it, I get a message saying that I can't, and my desktop won't load properly. If I ignore the system clock issue and try to change it in System > Administration > Time and Date later, after entering my admin password I get a message that says
Failed to run time-admin as user root.
Failed to communicate with gksu-helper.
Changing password for root.
Apparently the password issue is related to the Time and Date settings (according to Google), but I can't fix those because it wants me to change my password.
I'm trying to install Debian 5.03 from the netinstall on a usb flash disk. When it gets to the network initialization step, it fails and cannot get an IP from DHCP. Manual configuration does not work either. Out of desperation I installed windows to see if the network device was broken (this is a new motherboard), however it works fine without drivers even. Invoking lspci shows that it is a Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Etherent Controller (revision ff)
My laptop is a Dell XPS 1340, it contains an integrated 9400M, and a discrete G210m. In trying to get vgaswitcheroo working with these cards, it seemed that every time I tried to switch outputs, my computer would freeze.
Code: cd /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo sudo chmod 777 switch
echo DIS > switch # Same with DDIS, same with OFF It seems like what would happen if vgaswitcheroo turned off the driver (nouveau) powering the card on PCI bus 3 (the 9400M), and attempted to turn on the driver powering the G210m, which doesn't exist.. I think? Can somebody confirm?
I was having the dreaded black screen hang during install but got that figured out. Read [url] for my first problem.
Now that I've finally gotten it past the blank screen, it starts the install but then hangs while checking the PCI cards, I included a photo of where it hangs, and I don't have any PCI cards installed.

I ran my daily update of Debian Stretch using Synaptic, and when done had an un-installed update for ifupdown remaining marked in the list. By right clicking I was able to get Synaptic to say it would install the update, along with quite a few other updates. In the process of doing this, my screen went dark and stayed dark. On reboot, I get the Grub menu to select which Linux system I want to boot, but whichever one I choose, including older ones, I get to a command line, not the Gnome GUI.
I tried to complete the update of ifupdown using apt-get, only to discover that my machine no longer has any network connection, let alone Internet.
I recently installed two PC with debian lenny (kernel 2.6.26). One is called serveur-debian1 and the second one serveur-debian2. I have installed gnome,samba, mysql5, apache2, php5, and Virtualbox,bridge-tools on them. On serveur-debian2, i installed an other virtual debian lenny with apache2,mysql5,php5,nagios and centreon on it to view my network. I remember having installed a soft to access nntp on serveur-debian2 in order to test nagios.
Since a few days, i have problem to access to my servers. rom my windows 7 client, i try to ping serveur-debian1. Response is OK but not for all resquets Always from the same computer, i try to ping serveur-debian2. Response is OK but not for all again.
When i launch a ping on serveur-debian1 and serveur debian2 at the same time i have:
ping 1 to 10: serveur-debian1: response OK serveur-debian2: no response ping 11to 14: serveur-debian1: no response serveur-debian2: response OK ping 15 to 25: serveur-debian1: respone OK serveur-debian2: @ip serveur-debian1 network unreachable (there's no error, it shows me the ip of serveur-debian1)
If i switch on the debian virtual server on the serveur-debian2, and i ping it at the same time, the response is OK for all resquests. The problem is very strange. I can't have a correct connection and when i launch a request from a software which access the mysql server, the requests failed ...
Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: installing package xen-4.0.0_21091_06-0.1.1.x86_64 needs 27MB on the /boot filesystemI seem not to be able to change the size of the /boot, but 11.2 loads okay but not 11.3There only 19MB left from 66 and I can't make it bigger, I hope there is someone thathas seen this. I would like to see some of the update with XEN.
So I installed openSUSE 11.1, and got everything from yast2 and then finally got nvidia.ymp or whatever. Bascially, the one click install. When i did that, I couldn't boot into the SUSE GUI. I could boot into the command line but I couldn't start X server.When I did try the Ec2-openSUSE-126.96.36.199 option, I get grub error 13. It says that the ex2fs file system is not supported, only I did not format it with ext2. I am completely stumped and I'm a newbie.
I have a small pc running fedora 8 with iptables and 2 network cards for routing/firewall and secondary DNS.For some time I've been alerted by the network guys that this machine was generating some alerts. The real network IP address keeps being assigned to the other interface, intended for LAN only (10.0.0.1/24).I've already changed the PC, installed a more recent operating system, replaced the 2 network cards and the problem persists. I have another pc running the same services (except DNS) in a very simillar way and no alert logs from that one.onder if it is some configuration issue on my startup firewall script.I've also installed arpwatch and I could confirm this IP and physical address issue:
Arpwatch output: hostname: my.host.name ip address: my.ip.address
I have two D-Link network cards installed in my computer. The Ubuntu 10.04a2 installer seemed to recognize only one of them, though I know both are functional. I plugged a CAT5 cable in here, connected to my home network (with Internet). The installer proceeded happily, configuring DHCP and synchronizing clocks. However, when I rebooted after its completion, Ubuntu didn't recognize that I was connected to the network. I re-jiggled the RJ-45 connector, to no avail. When I run "System Testing," it does list both network cards during the Network suite, one being D-Link, and the other "James Bond" or something. So, what gives?
I have installed CentOs 5.4 for Snort sensor , on the location where i intend to place the Snort sensor to listen for internal firewall leg (LAN) the switch doesn't support port mirror so i would like to create with 2 nic's bridge and pass trough the firewall internal leg my question how do i set such configuration.
I have installed slackware 13.1 64-bit version and can not recognize network cards.I'm with laptop acer aspire 7540g.Wireless card is atheros ar5b93.Ethernet card is Broadcom NetLink � Gigabit Ethernet.
I use a network-connected HP printer through hplip and cupsI'm trying to discover how to access the media card ports that are built-in on the printer. Q1: Is there some way that my linux workstations can mount or otherwise access these flash-media cards?If not, then,Q2: Does anyone know about a network-connected, shared resource, multiple format media card device?(My wireless router has a USB port for shared things, but I think
Ok, so I've gotten tired of my router, and I've decided to make my own using IPFire as the OS. Right now I'm looking for ethernet cards that I can use for the green network, but I don't know if I can use 2 for the same network. I'm trying to get 4 ports at 1000 Mbs, and the only thing I've been able to find so far that's within my price range is a card from startech that has 2 ports, but would I be able to use 2 for the green network?
