I have installed opensuse 11.2 without graphical interface. Configured whole server with ftp and hosting. This suses-server is in LAN with my home computer and without keyboard, monitor and mouse. What to use to connect from my Windows platform to terminal of suse so I don't need extra hardware?
I am new using SUSE and have one application running. I would like to put the school's new web site that I have runing on localhost on the SUSE box and would appreciate suggestions esp the broad steps involved.Do I install separately Apache, PhP, filezilla, etc. or just install XAMPP?What is the best way to keep the web site updated--ftp or some other way? Teachers want to make routine changes so I have to figure out a procedure.
What is the best way to tie down security besides having good passwords on all Usernames? (I have a 3COM device that I can allow services to specific IP's and define firewall rules. But most incoming would be port 80 which I cannot block.)
I am relatively new at Linux and am having some problems with an install of openSUSE 11.2. I installed 11.2 on my Thinkpad X31 dual boot with WinXP. It seems to work very well except the network. I looked up swerdna's instructions on setting network cards up. I used YaST to try and set the system up as described in swerdna's instructions. Everything looks fine my network card and wireless card show up in the overview settings screen and everything sets up fine. But when I exit YaST the network doest show up no icon in the system tray and it doesn't even try to connect.
I did go into hardware to see if it was identifying my hardware and my network card shows up as "Thinkpad R40" and the wireless shows up as Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b. As far as I know this is correct. I have tried three other distro's and this one has gotten the closest to working so far.
My Suse 11.4 wired network is not displayed in the bottom panel inside of my networkmanager. I can connect to the internet It just shows a red box with a white x inside near my clock is there anyway to get this working?
I just finished a brand new install of 11.2 on a workstation and it can't connect to the internet at all. I can ping Google and I can ping devices on my local network but I can't browse any web pages. I am able to ping the workstation with my windows 7 workstation. I tried disabling the firewall. I have it set to use DHCP.
I can connect to google via IP. So it appears to be a DNS type issue, is there some settings I am missing?
Wireless card detected but cannot connect to a wireless network
I have install it suse 11, and everything went well until the wireless thing is not working, my card is Broadcom BCM4318, I see my card on the network settings but I cannot configure the card, and also I cannot connect to a wireless network, can someone tell me what to do here, I am loosing my patient....
i am using intel hardware on this working on suse linux 10.2 . i am not able to configure the network card IP address I have tryed using dhcp and static both way. Currently intel DG41RQ network card is assembled in my system. by using command ifconfig i can see only lo but eth0 is not displayed their.
I mistakenly delete my default panel. How to add the network notifier? Tried to look for the widget but nothing? i need to choose my network connections. And when i look at the Network manager my wireless if black ? It means it didn't detected my wireless?
I just installed suse on this computer, and am wanting to allow other computers to store files on it as a file server. I was reading the online manual and in the personal file preferences, it shows an option to enable 'share public files over network'. The problem is I don't see that option when I open up file preferences. All I see is an option to allow sharing using bluetooth, nothing about sharing over the network. When I look in the network I can see the computer running suse, but when I try to connect to it, it says 'unable to mount drive: connection refused by server.'
New SUSE 11.3 install connects to network/internet etc OK with DHCP-assigned IP address. When I switch to static IP, I can no longer ping internal network, or anything else. This works OK with SUSE 11.2 on same hardware and (as far as I can see) same setup. Some diagnostics are shown below.
Firewall Disabling the firewall makes no difference.
Not using a network manager (can't see how to assign fixed address if I do - all greyed out).
ifup eth0: eth0 device: Intel Corporation 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 02) SuSEfirewall2: Warning: no default firewall zone defined, assuming 'ext' (not sure why the warning - eth0 is assigned to external in the firewall setup).
I am attempting to setup a linux file server in active directory. It has been kind of an ongoing project(nightmare) for me... I have tried a few distributions of linux and I have to say I really enjoy openSUSE. YaST is my best friend. Now to the problem at hand.
I have samba installed and configured for the domain. I was able to successfully join the machine to the domain. I can even log on using domain user names and passwords (more than I was able to accomplish with other distros...). Where I am having a problem currently is I cannot see the suse machine from a windows machine. I can access shares from suse to windows though.
In my client side, i got 4 machines(2 database server,2 application server). One database server for DC and another database server for DR. Similarly, I need to use the application server also. The two database server are having the same ip.(192.168.1.10) and two application server are having the same ip(192.168.1.11). But they give the another ip for all machines like below.
After installing 11.4, I need to type in the command to update the firmware for a broadcom wifi adapter. Then I needed to reboot, twice, before the system knew to use the adapter (where the adapter wifi light goes from orange to blue).
Then I needed to add my wireless network and type in my key. But the key does not take. If I click on my wireless network icon, it just re-asks for the key and does not connect nor give any other message. Network icon continues to display no connection.
So I need to reboot again.
When the system starts again, the adapter is blue, I click on the icon for my wifi network and it connects without asking for my key and I can then set to start my wifi by default.
I would like to use my SuSE 11.2 1TB RAID server to backup my mac using time machine. I found several tutorials on the web for using netatalk over ssh, but all these tutorials are for Ubuntu and require the debian package. Has anybody compiled netatalk over ssh under SuSE? I cannot verify if the netatalk package installed by the SuSE installer has been compiled with this option. Alternatively could somebody point me to any documentation to help me compile netatalk? I tried reading the netatalk manual from sourceforge, but that asks for installation of a Berkley DB that is not required under Ubuntu.
Ethernet configuration: - eth0 private net - eth1 internet
eth1 is connected to a cable modem and uses dhcp. After migrating to suse-11.2 ip-forwarding (once the system is up and running) is sometimes deactivated and i have no clue why. /etc/syslog.conf has an entry net.ipv4.ip_forwarding = 1
i have modified the SuSE-scripts /sbin/SuSEfirewall /sbin/ifup-dhcp /etc/init.d/SuSEfirewall2_setup to make sure each time my firewall-rules are loaded ip-forwarding is explicitly enabled. This worked perfectly with suse-11.0. Now ip-forwarding is enabled after a system reboot or after one of the above scripts is called, but somewhere somehow ip-forwarding is always deactivated and i have no idea how this happens. This may happen after 5 minutes or after 5 hours. As a workaround i created a cronjob running every 5 minutes issuing a sysctl-command to enable ip-forwarding.
One of biggest reason I need to use windows is because my company uses Juniper SSL VPN to remote desktop into our company's computer. Our company doesn't allow any native linux/windows app client, only the web SSL VPN is enabled.
Looks like this Juniper SSL VPN only works on windows computers. It makes the windows remote desktop client connect over the SSL web VPN from browser. Of course, linux/SUSE doesn't have the windows desktop client. Is there any way to get RDP work through the given SSL VPN? Otherwise, I guess I need go back install windows and starting using it again.
I am with a customer who has Suse 10.1 in production environment and connected to the internet.For now I want to install denyhosts on this machine since I see lots of failed login attempts outside office hours.However when I do: python setup.py install I get the message File "setup.py", line 4, in ?from distutils.core import setupmportError: No module named distutils.coreI don't know how to solve this. I have added a repository to install distutils.core but could not find it
I know openSUSE (and SUSE Enterprise) work great with windows Active Directory.Now, I understand that Linux systems are far more stable and secure (if configured properly). What about features though? What does openSUSE/Linux have instead of AD for file/folder sharing across the network? Are there roaming profiles? If so, how do I use that?I love openSUSE because of yast (and a few other things). And It's my main LinuxOS on my tower. I am still in college getting my certs and a degree (in networking). I really want to understand why Linux (openSUSE/ SUSE enterprise) is a better networking solution as opposed to Windows Sever 2003/2008.Also, why SUSE over RHEL/CentOS? Yast is awesome, but are there other reasons?
I know that's a lot to ask in one post. Feel free to include links so you won't have to type too much.I'd like both personal opinions, hard facts, and just general user experiences as to the features that make Linux (openSUSE) better, not just the stability and security.
I've setup vnc over ssh tunnelling however the Suse firewall seems to be blocking it. On the local host I have this in ~/.ssh/config:LocalForward localhost:5900 remotehost.com:5900 The problem is that this only works when I either disable the firewall or add an exception for VNC. Both of these actions defeat the whole purpose of ssh tunnelling since they leave my VNC port open to the outside world (very insecure).
I'm dummy in linux world and maybe someone can help? Installed Opensuse 11.4 64bit on Hyper-V virtual machine all is working fine except sometimes lan connection is lost.
Code: /etc/init.d/network restart is not helping and I need manual reboot.Why that? What's problem? In routes table I can see default gw. Code: Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 184.108.40.206 * 255.255.255.192 U 0 0 0 eth0 link-local * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0 loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo default 220.127.116.11 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
All settings are correct as far as i can tell. The wep key works on all my windows boxes. When i have connect automatically enabled it never tries to connect. if I go to edit it it pops kde wallet up i put in credentials. wallet goes away then nothing happens. if i double click connection to my router also nothing happens. I have the wep key in there and i even made it visible to make sure.
I am using OpenSuse 11.3 and Network Manager is giving me a headache by not connecting to WEP based wi-fi network.It works in a wi-fi at my office while at my home, it shows / detects the network but keeps asking me over and over.
I installed OpenSuSE 11.3. The only "extra" package I put in after the install was VirtualBox-ose. The firewall is disabled. I gave the machine a static IP address. I can get to the Internet from the machine. I enabled sshd to start on boot with "chkconfig sshd on" and also verified the service is running on the machine. I can ssh user@localhost from the machine as well.
When I try to connect to SSH from another machine, I get a connection refused. I verify that the firewall is down. I also try to get to VNC -- same problem: Connection refused. I ping the machine for fun. If I try to SSH again, it sometimes gives me a logon? I would check the server logs for the connection refused, but I wouldn't know where to look. I started in /var/log/messages, but nothing seemed to jump out there. I also find it strange because I can RDP to a windows guest running under VirtualBox. The Windows guest uses Bridged Network and DHCP.
I also find it interesting that I sometimes type a "ping google.com" from the 11.3 box and it will just hang - no output. Then I open firefox and get to the internet. All of a sudden, ping starts to give output. Could this be a neetwork card issue? A configuration issue? I don't know where to start.
