I have fedora12 on two pc's, i want to share some files between them which i was not able to do with nfs, so let me know the whole procedure to do that n also let me know where my shared files will be visible
i'm trying to rig up my machine as a household server, i had it sharing internet to my other computers via a wifi router. (machine is a desktop and i have no wifi cards for it)then i installed java, squid and SAMBA. since then the other machines can't detect internet. java is screwy.i've updated it and it reduces the screen scramble.but squid is what has me.it seems to stop ubuntu telling my windows machines (win 7, and win xp) that there is internet available.intrestingly i can play multiplayer games on the windows machines with a ip address.(ip address of a mate. connected and ran ok.)
system specs ubuntu 11? (i know it updated from 10 a few weeks ago) internet - DODO mobile broadband (piggybacks on yes optus australia) wifi- via router connected to eth0
so someone know how to either
1. get ubuntu to state it's sharing internet again. or
2. turn mobile broadband off for 5-10 secs, re-enable, then connect to a mobile broadband called DODO automatically when internet drops out (a script perhaps?)
i want to share the Internet connection to thin client from my Ubuntu server,Internet is accessible to my Ubuntu server but i am unable to boot from thin client to server,i configured DHCP but of no use.can any plz send me the detailed steps to configure thin clients in my network
i would like to setup one of my old pcs as a file server and internet gateway; we are living in a large building shared with 40 others. the ubuntu box would be the one connected to the internet via ethernet and sharing connexion via wifi. i haven't started yet - presently, i am doing the ground work and reading before to start i understand sharing the internet is relatively simple and can be done from the GUI
What we would like is slightly like BT Fon or BT Open Zone in the UK: you can hook on a free network but in order to access outside (internet: email, web, ftp, etc) you need to login login would help us monitor fair usage. I imagine something with username and password for each user would do: as we are a few in the same building not everyone is actually paying for the connection and we don't want to end up with rather large excess bills. So the ones who are paying access both files and internet; those who dont just have access to the files on the local server.
Do i need Ubuntu server to set this up? What hardware would be ideal - given we are all far from rich but willing to have a nice setup
It would be great if you could share some knowledge around the topic and eventually provide some tutorial; also any heads-up on the hardware side would be great! (signal booster, etc - there's 3 floors and 3 buildings)
How do I tell the shared connection that it has a static IP and that I dont want a DHCP on the network?Do I have to set up DHCP on the box with the shared connection, even if that box only runs DHCP for a single IP address being the eth0 that is shared?Or can I tell the shared connection that it has a static IP and still allow network manager to run the shared connection?Or should I specify static IP's for all clients and the shared network manager and install say firestarter on the gateway to run the NAT for the eth0 out to eth1.
I'm trying to set up a wireless AP with Internet sharing. I currently have the AP setup with hostapd and a dhcp server. The clients can connect but there is not Internet sharing. Now my situation is somewhat uniqe in that my internet connection is my teathered android cell phone. The tether app is azilink and i use openvpn to create a virtual networking interface(tun0).
I dont know if my question is correct or not... but that is my way of understanding (it sounded different to me too Now my problem is. My ISP registers MAC address when connected to Internet. So if connect another system with a switch, Internet will be accessible by only one system (which registers first). I want both systems to work at a time!
What should I do?? Are there different methods of connecting? I searched google, but I could not frame a sentence to ask? It would be happy if it is either a command based or UI based. ++: How can I restrict the bandwidth usage of the second system??
I've got Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop and have recently (within the last 72 hours) started having trouble connecting to other machines on my local network. I'm unable to ping both my router and a server set up in the room beside me.
1. I have tried pinging my server and router from other machines and it works fine. Accessing the server via HTTP works from all machines except for my laptop.
2. I am, however, connected to my router via wireless and can access the internet. Also, if I connect via an ethernet cable I am able to ping both my server and router, although I'd love to be able to go wireless.
3. I assume something's wrong with my wireless setup, but I really can't figure out what. Possibly related note: my wireless has been disconnecting unpredictably on my home network (WPA).
Let me know if you'd like to see any command output and I'll get it to you asap! I've got a Dell Studio 1558 w/ the dreaded Broadcom BCM4312 wireless controller.
Code: user@blue-skies:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces auto lo iface lo inet loopback
I have a netgear wireless system and it is problematic with Linux. I need to use a static IP or will loose connection. It is also problematic with an itouch and a kindle. I just bought my wife a kindle and need to get it to work. It there a way to run two home wireless systems from one Internet connection? I have a wireless router supplied by surewest but my wireless Cannon printer did not seem to like that.
I have a non-profit company. Currently we are using Dropbox to store and share files. We have the free 2 gig account and we are quickly running out of space. Naturally, we don't have a lot of money so I'm looking for a cheap alternative. I thought I might be able to set up a linux server in my home (with a back-up drive) do to the same thing. I want my board members and staff to be able to access these files from their homes or jobs and to be able to manipulate the files on the server. I'd like to be able to control access levels so that I can limit access to certain files and folders. I have a tech background but none of the others do so FTP is not really an option. It needs to be as simple as if they were looking at a file on their pc. Is this possible or am I totally dreaming here?
Right now I'm using Ubuntu but I just downloaded Fedora 15 and plan to play around with that a bit. The pc's I have are P4 2.6 with 1G RAM.
I've somehow got it into my head that it's possible to share CPU cycles, though I've no idea where from.So basically that's what I'm asking - is it actually possible to tell one system to 'donate' it's unused CPU time, cycles, whatever they are, for another's use?
I just want to use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to connect to the internet. I have done a massive amount of troubleshooting, but some of it seems to contradict itself, and the only two things that I know for sure are that it used to work, and that my Ethernet cable is not the problem. When I use Terminal utilities like ifup and dhclient it seems that it can not determine IP information, but when I try to put it in manually, the "Apply" button grays out right after I finish typing it in. When I try to connect normally, in KDE or GNOME, the icon acts like it's connecting, then instead of having the connected icon, I receive a notification that "the network has been disconnected", and it goes back to the disconnected icon.
Oh, and by the way, I know that I could probably find a workaround, but I have limited resources, and this used to work. The Linux is a Dell desktop with Fedora 12 and the Windows is a Windows 7 HP laptop.EDIT: I hope that I didn't mess something up, but I accidentally used system-network-config to try putting in the IP address there, and ended up changing it back to the original settings, but the computer is now calling it Auto Ethernet in the taskbar icon, although sudo iwconfig in the terminal still calls it eth0.
I've been able to make my server connect to my clients but not able to share the internet connection. I've been searching around but haven't come across an answer yet. Hoping someone here will point me in the right directiong. I have the following setup running. I'm trying to make an internet connection go through my server but haven't been able to get it to work.
for the last one week i'm facing problem in sharing internet between xp and fedora. I'm connected to internet through wireless adapter in xp and wants to share internet through crossover cable between xp and fedora. I did the following steps.
1: start a network setup wizard in xp. 2: change the smb.conf file in fedora and change the workgroup name to same as in xp. 3:in Xp the ethernet adapter has address 192.168.0.1/24. 4: when i connect the crossover cable and start fedora. it couldn't get the ip address through dhcp. 5: when i tried giving the ip address manually "192.168.0.2/24 with gateway 192.168.0.1"and save the subnet mask is replaced by 192.168.0.1 don't know why it not saved.
i tried changing new ethernet card but not worked. some time avc denials message "SELinux is preventing consoletype (consoletype_t) "read" to /var/lib/dhclient/dhclient-eth0.leases (dhcpc_state_t)." comes. can any one tell me how to enable or make a network in fedora . i 'm very new in linux and couldn't able to share network .
I have little question, how can i share internet in Ubuntu? In this case to Win 7? I have tried Firestarter, but that doesnt work... And please I do not have a router I just need simple connection from my desktop to my laptop, and I dont want another box collecting dust.
I'm trying to use my bluetooth connection on Opensuse 11.4 to share its internet access with my Windows 7 laptop.I've been able to link them together(send receive files) but cannot create an Adhoc network or share internet with the link.What should I try? Could someone point me into the right direction?I looked at one promising tread that looked as if it would work but cant find hcid.conf(did a complete file search and think it may have been changed in bluez).
my laptop seems to have a bad HDD, and I was thinking of trying to make it a "thin client." However since it is a laptop obviously I want to take it places. Is it possible to make a terminal server and "thin client" connect through the internet and not just LAN?The reason I quote thin client is because in my mind I am still going to need to use some HDD so I can connect to the internet and find my server.
To make things easier to read refer to the above as "question 1" and the velow as "question2" Thank you. And sorry for the inconvience. These topics I felt were to similar to make separate topics.I also have another question, the files I have on my server can be accessed by anyone on the network(added a second HDD and network shared it) how can I make it so that the LAN clients have to "login" (or it uses their computers login info to send them to only their files? And if that is possible can we expand it to allow me to use those logins through the internet?
I have a laptop running Windows XP with a secure wireless internet connection. I want to share this connection to my desktop running Ubuntu 9.10 via an direct ethernet cable connection. So far in Windows I checked the "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" in the Wireless Network Connection Properties menu. Doing this creates a new IP Configuration. Here is an output of running the ipconfig command: Windows IP Configuration
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and trying to use Internet Connection Sharing through my Dell Mini 9 laptop.
The incoming internet is from wireless The outgoing internet is from Ethernet I am using a crossover cable as I have heard this is necessary I followed the 9.10 method on my Auto Eth 0 connection Here is a link to the Ubuntu Documentation I used The computer I am trying to share to does not pick up the internet being shared from the cable.
I have an Ethernet hub, and want two computers (both notebooks) to share my internet connection. One is running Ubuntu 9.10 and the other is running Windows Vista. I want both computers to be able to connect to the internet (I use a cable modem).
However, when I plug both computers in, I am able to get only one of them working at one time. When Ubuntu works with the internet, Windows does not work (although it sees the internet connection). When Windows works, Ubuntu sees the connection, but cannot connect.
I'm trying to share an internet connection between two computers. The one currently online is a HP Presario running Ubuntu 9.10, and connects through a wireless connection. It has an ethernet port, which I'm hoping to use to connect to a Dell Desktop running Windows XP pro SP 3. I'm hoping to make this happen one of two ways.
1. Without having to mess with any DHCP settings. Sadly, I live with my parents, and the router in their room uses DHCP and sets the addresses for all the computers on the network. My parents don't want me screwing with any of the settings on the router. is there a way to just have Ubuntu pass information from the ethernet connection to the wireless connection without having to deal with DHCP.
2. I'm sure this has been explained, but as I'm new to Ubuntu, I will pretty much need step by step instructions to do this part. Sorry to be difficult. Is there a way to have Ubuntu keep the current settings it has on the wireless side (let the router determine it's address and all of that good stuff), but have a DHCP server kick in on the hard-wired side so Internet Connection Sharing has an address to look for on the laptop?
I want to use the wifi card in my laptop to share my internet connection to my Android Phone.Android phones don't support Ad-hoc networks yet (maybe not ever) so I need to the shared network in Infrastructure mode not ad-hoc mode.Using Ubuntu 10.04, If I click on the NetworkManager Applet ( 0.8 ) and select Create new wireless network, it will create an ad-hoc network, I then tried changing this to infrastructure, but it didn't work.Is there some way of modifying this created network to make it appear as infrastructure, or alternatively create a shared internet connection in infrastructure mode?
Just took the plunge and removed Windows 7 from my desktop rig and I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04
I was using this PC to share my Internet (DSL) connection to any and all other PC's on my network, wired and wireless, and I am attempting to set this up in Ubuntu.
My desktop, other wired PC's, a wireless AP and my DSL modem are all connected to a 8 port Ethernet switch and I was using ICS in Windows 7 to share my Internet connection once I established the connection from my desktop.
Can this be done in Ubuntu? As soon as I make the DSL connection it says that Auto eth0 disconnects (which I set to share to all in IPv4 settings which I read on the forum is the way to share)... thus nothing is currently shared :/
In this document it states that the sharing computer needs two network interfaces... but in Windows I only used the one...
The place I will be staying at (Japanese Guesthouse) only offers internet through cable. What I'd like to do is be able to connect my other devices through wifi (Cellphone for example) to the Ubuntu machine connected through this ethernet cable in order to access the internet.I've searched for a good hour but I'm getting extremely confused about the gateways, bridges or whatever else people suggest. Most of what I've been able to find actually only covers getting internet through wifi and then sharing it through lan (I'm trying to achieve the opposite).
So if anyone could point me in the right direction, or at least tell me what terms I should be using for my searches, it would greatly help.Some computer info might be useful. I'm using a Dell XPS M1210, the network adapter is an Intel Pro Wireless 3945ABG and I'm running Ubuntu Desktop Edition 10.10.
I have a desktop PC and a laptop, both running Ubuntu lucid, the laptop has XFCE and the PC has GNOME, but that's actually not relevant.My PC is connected to.I can't access the internet from my laptop, but whenever I connect the two machines with a network cable, my PC sees the connection at eth0 (even announces connection and disconnection), but my laptop does not.I have no idea what's going on, could this be a faulty cable or a faulty network card at my laptop? Or I simply screwed up the connection setup?
i have 2 laptops which is one installing windows 7 and the other one is ubuntu 10.04. i have internet on windows 7 and want to share to linux ubuntu 10.04 through wireless connection. How to setting that?
In windows, when I use an HSPDA modem, internet traffic will be automatically directed through it. Everything will go back to normal once broadband connection is disconnected. In fedora 12 this is not the case, internet traffic will still go through the lan interface. Is there a way to mimic windows behavior in linux?
