Networking :: How To Use DNS Server To Reduce Netbios Broadcast And Speed Up Browsing?

May 11, 2011

I am on a 172.16.x.x network with about 60 Windows XP home and Vista home clients in a peer-to-peer workgroup that uses DHCP to assign addresses. About half the traffic on my LAN is netbios broadcast. I do not want to do a WINS server because I do not want to have to manually change the registry on every machine. This is only for local name resolution and I do not have any web servers or e-mail servers. I do not have access to a Windows server to use as a DNS server. I am on Debian and using BIND but am open to other suggestions.

General :: Turn Turtle-speed Browsing Into Penguin-speed Browsing?

Oct 17, 2010

I've just installed Slackware 13.1 in two different laptops for first time. I have some strange internet browsing behaviour in one of the laptops. I've installed 2 internet browsers(firefox,opera) using the directions from and there is also konqueror pre-installed. Moreover I installed Wicd network manager.

I can browse some pages e.g. ..... with firefox very slowly but NEVER facebook. I can browse almost any page, even facebook, with OPERA but very very slowly. The same goes with konqueror... Wicd shows that i am always connected with my WPA wireless network

Server :: PPTP Traffic - Gre Traffic Is Being Generated During The Browsing / Reduce Traffic

Sep 27, 2009

Recently I notice that when I'm connected to an vpn server (pptpd) and I'm using it as a default gateway my download and upload speed decreases almost to the half of the usual speed. I made a test using iptables in order to count how much GRE packets are generated (except the real traffic itself) in that way:

iptables -I INPUT -p gre -j ACCEPT
iptables -I OUTPUT -p gre -j ACCEPT

iptables -I FORWARD -s -j ACCEPT
iptables -I FORWARD -d -j ACCEPT
The first 2 rules match all GRE packets between the pptpd server and client, and the next rules - the traffic between the server and the client.

When I turn the counters to zero and begin to generate traffic (to browse, to download etc.) I see that the GRE packets are even more than these in the FORWARD chain.

So, my question is first of all is my test correct and is it true that so much gre traffic is being generated during the browsing (it becames clear that the traffic is double than if the pptpd wasn't used as a gateway) and if yes - can that traffic be reduced?

Server :: Reduce RAID5 Partition Sizes / Reduce The Size Of Md1 And Grow Md0?

Feb 14, 2010

I have a rack of four 1TB drives all partitioned identically with three primary partitions. On each drive

- the first partition is only 64MB;
- the second is a large 900GB partition and
- the last holds all the remaining space

mdadm has been used to set up
/dev/md0 - RAID1, comprised of /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1
/dev/md1 - RAID5, comprised of /dev/sda2, /dev/sdb2, /dev/sdc2, /dev/sdd2
/dev/md2 - RAID5, comprised of /dev/sda3, /dev/sdb3, /dev/sdc3, /dev/sdd3

OK, so it was a silly mistake to make - but I am now need to increase the size of /dev/md0. My thinking is to reduce the size of md1 so that I can grow md0.

On md1 I have two logical volumes. I've successfully reduced the size of the volume so that I can reduce the size of md1. Now I'm at the nervous stage; I can find little written on the topic of shrinking RAID5 arrays - and even if I do this I'm unsure if I can move partitions around to regain the space I so desire.

Ubuntu Networking :: Share Out Samba Shares - Multiple Netbios Showing From Server

Nov 30, 2010

I have a fileserver that I want to share out samba shares. However, i configured samba to have another netbios (SAN) and my windows box still sees whoopn-SAN which is the name I gave to my server when i installed it. Now I am using 9.10 and I know that i can create a share from the gnome gui in nautilus and that appears to be a windows like share. How can I turn OFF the windows like shares that ubuntu does out of the box and use ONLY samba? I ask because there appears to be a conflict of permissions b/w samba and this stuff.

Networking :: Get Netbios Name From Ip Address?

Mar 1, 2010

At the CLI, I want to know how to get a netbios name from an IP address. It seems that every solution that I have found is windows based, or requires me to install something beyond samba. is a simple "prog-x -somearg" or similar to get the netbios name - and that it doesn't require a reconfiguration of my server?

For instance, I would like this to be usable on a desktop system in an ad hoc without having to be run from root.

Ubuntu Networking :: NetBIOS - Addressing Computers By Name

May 6, 2010

I'm having some trouble addressing computers by name. I've just upgraded most my my box's to Lucid, and it was all working fine, but suddenly stopped - not quite sure why, or what I did, but I need it to come back! At first I thought it was my old router dying (which it was) but a new router hasn't helped.

I've now moved DHCP from the router to my server, and that's working fine, giving out static IPs from MAC addresses, and so forth, but I still can't address anything by name. My server is on and called myth-server, if I

Networking :: Automated Way Of Loging Into Servers By Netbios Name Instead Of Ip's

Sep 18, 2010

In recent days, (today is September 18, 2010) I've been surfing the web trying to learn how to access nodes in my soho lan by netbios names instead of having to connect through the ip number, because ip's change every time according to DHCP assignments. I do not know what has happened to the "new" command mount.cifs, but things seem to have become a bit more complicated with the new version. Security problems, they say, and surely that's the reason.

I show here an automated way of loging into servers by netbios name instead of having to resort to the use of IP numbers, hosts files, wins servers and all that jazz. This is especially useful if your soho lan have five or more network nodes, and you do not want to go finding out the ip numbers assigned to the machines you want to connect to (temporarily or permanently).

This output is piped to gawk to isolate the line containing <00>, and gawk outputs the first element (print $1) of that line, which happens to be the ip of the server ServerName. I tested the script in my soho network, which now has Linux, Windows XP and Windows 7 nodes, and it worked perfectly for both tipes of servers.I'm using GNU's gawk, but I'm pretty sure that awk would do the job just as well.

Networking :: Throttle Client Connection Speed From NAT Server

Sep 5, 2010

I have about 5 computers on my network that get their internet connection from a Linux NAT server. is a Linux server that has a NAT set up to share the internet connection. is a download server that is almost always downloading - is assigned by DHCP to users.

I want to make it so that the download server runs at full speed but is throttled only when someone from the user IP addresses range tries to use the NAT server.I think I'm looking for some way to set the download server's packets to have a lower priority than the client's packets. Is there a way to set this in the Linux server?

Fedora Networking :: F14 Samba Server With Slow Write Speed

Aug 4, 2011

I had a F14 samba server working flawlessly now for a quite time. Unexpectedly about a month ago the write speed slowed down around 64kbit/s and that's really slow. I haven't changed any configs, only updated the server. I've troubleshooted this from many angles:
-It is not a network issue because sftp writes are good.
-It is not a RAID1 issue because write speed from another directory (locally) are good.
So basically samba is the only thing left.

Here's example from smb.conf:
comment = My share
path = /mnt/RAID_share
writeable = yes
browseable = yes
writelist = +smbuser

Here's a snip from logs today:
[2011/08/04 09:04:27.509273, 1] smbd/server.c:267(remove_child_pid)
Scheduled cleanup of brl and lock database after unclean shutdown
[2011/08/04 09:04:47.526336, 1] smbd/server.c:240(cleanup_timeout_fn)
Cleaning up brl and lock database after unclean shutdown
[2011/08/04 09:17:57.634660, 1] smbd/server.c:267(remove_child_pid)
Scheduled cleanup of brl and lock database after unclean shutdown
[2011/08/04 09:18:17.635196, 1] smbd/server.c:240(cleanup_timeout_fn)
Cleaning up brl and lock database after unclean shutdown .....

There's a restart that is not software related.

Fedora Networking :: Cbq - Restrict Upload Speed From Ftp Server To Internet (eth1)

Slackware :: Broadcast Messages From Server To Clients

Jul 6, 2010

I am searching for a way to broadcast a simple message from a server to the other machines (clients) on my local network every day at 22:30 (10:30pm) to warn users that the server will shutdown in 30 minutes (energy saving strategy). Basically, I was thinking to add a cron entry ion the server crontab to do so. before I go ahead with that, I tried several ways to accomplish this action. Then I tried simply "wall" and got a text promt to type in my message. At the end I pressed CTRL+D and got a popup displaying my message. So it worked but it was on the server's monitor. How can I send this message to a remote machine? Is wall the proper command to do so?

I also tried using paswordless ssh..It doesnt work. Basically I can login on the remote machine using passwordless ssh but when I issue either kdialog or xmessage, I get error "cannot connect to X server on diaplay 0:0" (or something similar).I tried also ssh 'wall 'message'' but it also says "cannot connect to X server on diaplay 0:0"So far I have several ways but nothing really works..There must be a real way to to that?All machines are Slackware 13.1 based.
