OpenSUSE Network :: Cannot Connect To Win7 Machine

Nov 4, 2010

I have created a small network using Win7 (not a home network, it's a workplace network), but cannot see the Win7 machine from my Linux box (openSUSE 11.3 32 bit). I am getting the error message "Empfangen der Speicherliste vom Server ist gescheitert" ("couldn't receive storage list from server" or so), wenn I try to connect via "Locations -> Server -> Windows Network -> 172.168.178.2 (which is the Win7 machines local IP address).

Disabling the firewall doesn't help.

My setup is a DSL router to which all my computers are connected.

Despite searching the inet for hours I couldn't find a solution.

Another problem is that from the Win7 machine I can only access the public folders on the Linux machine using the root login (not the user I used to make the folders public).

OpenSUSE Network :: Network 11.3 - Connection Refused When Try To Connect To SSH From Another Machine

Sep 27, 2010

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.

OpenSUSE Network :: Connect 11 Machine To The Internet?

Feb 24, 2010

So here is what I am trying to do. I want to connect my Open Suse 11 machine to the internet. I am almost there.

1. I configured my network card and eth0 is up.

2. I configured my DSL with user name and password and I am authenticated.

3. An IP address is assigned to me and the DNS servers are retrieved.

However I cannot ping or visit any website I use the YAST automatic configuration and kinternet to connect. Here are the gritty details

[Code]...

I do see that kinternet has trouble reading /etc/resolv.conf. It says 'permission denied' although read permissions are set on both /sbin/route and the path that it links to. This should not matter however since the existing entries are already there and valid. I also tried to turn off the firewall suspecting it could be a problem.

So I am being authenticated successfully ( verified with the logs ); assigned an IP; the route seems ok; firewall seems ok. But I cannot browse or do internet things I have been tweaking settings for 3 days now and all seems in vain. Do enlighten me on what I am doing wrong. I bet its something silly that I overlooked. I have had success configuring the same thing in red hat linux and browsing the internet without trouble. Is there something OpenSuse specific that I am missing ?

Debian Configuration :: Use A Network Bridge To Connect Virtual Machine?

Jul 26, 2011

I'm attempting to use a network bridge to connect my virtual machine, like so:

[Code]...

The issue is that when I type the following command, I get the further following horrible error message that doesn't seem to really point me to anywhere and I can't seem to find any relevant information to my problem on the web:

root@darkstacks:~# qemu-system-i386 -hda test.img -m 128 -curses -net nic -net tap,ifname=tap0 warning: could not configure /dev/net/tun: no virtual network emulation

Does anyone have any idea what I need to do here? My processor does not have the vmx flag, as it's a 2.4GHz P4. I don't know if that might have something to do with it.

OpenSUSE Network :: Configure Firewall To Allow Win7 Access

Jan 1, 2011

I've got my server mostly configured with Samba file shares - I can access from Linux and OSX computers. I've enabled Samba Clietn and Sambar server in the openSUSE firewall settings (on the server), but Windows 7 can't seem to connect. I've been trying to tweak registry keys in Windows and such, but had no luck. However, when I turned off the firewall on the server, I was instantly able to connect. Is there some other service or port I need to open for Windows 7?

OpenSUSE Network :: New Dual-boot Machine Has Poor Network Performance

This is a thread I've moved over from the install forum and is hopefully more focused. Sorry if I have violated some protocol. Problem I have a new machine build configured to dual-boot Windows 7 and OPENSUSE 11.4. Network performance in Windows is very good but network performance in OPENSUSE is very poor.

OpenSUSE :: Vmware Server Cannot Connect Virtual Machine Console?

Jan 29, 2010

Since a few weeks I cannot open a console in vmware server 2.0.2 anymore. I don't know exactly when this started because I use vmware only occasionally (I have only 1 program (an old Ashlar DrawingBoard) which does not run properly in wine). VMware server and the console have been working before without problems, but now I get the message "Cannot connect virtual machine console." and it times out. This is on Opensuse 11.1 with VMware Server on the same pc, Firefox and the guest is Windows2000.

I have tried to disable all extensions in firefox 3.6, disabled the firewall, even created a new user (on the same pc) with a clean firefox, all without any result. However when I connect from a different computer which runs Internet Explorer under windowsXP, then I can get the console without problem.

So, somewhere there is something wrong between Firefox and VMware server.

OpenSUSE :: The KDE Network Monitor Requires 3 Reboots Before Being Able To Connect To Wireless Network

Mar 10, 2011

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.

Now my wifi works fine.

OpenSUSE Network :: How Secure Is Default Opensuse 11.04 Machine Out Of Box

May 19, 2011

First off How do you disable IPV6 access on all connections used on the pc-is there a way to test for ipv6 connectivity?

Secondly how secure is a default opensuse 11.04 machine out of the box? should i be making some changes to the default configuration?

Thirdly what does the default firewall settings do? on my network i use my wpa2 psk aes connection via my local wireless network-in the event that some can hack into my wireless would the opensuse firewall prevent direct access to my pc from a attacker on the same wireless subnet?

Fourthly when does opensuse 11.04 go out of date? in a year from now?

Networking :: DNSMasq - Cannot Ping Win7 Machine By Name

Mar 4, 2011

This is the scenario: gentoo box (distro shouldn't be relevant here) and win7 box. Gentoo box is dhcp and dns server, via dnsmasq. From win7, I can ping gentoo by both ip and name. No problem there. From Gentoo, I can ping win7 by ip, but not by name. The dnsmasq log seems to receive the name ok, it's "Tere-PC". I have been looking around for many hours now and I know there must be something simple I am not taking into account.

Code:
dnsmasq-dhcp: 55480937 available DHCP range: 192.168.0.50 -- 192.168.0.150
dnsmasq-dhcp: 55480937 client provides name: Tere-PC
dnsmasq-dhcp: 55480937 vendor class: MSFT 5.0 .....

Code:
# ping Tere-PC
ping: unknown host Tere-PC
Is there any way that dnsmasq, which is supposedly a dns server, will link this name to the given ip?

OpenSUSE Network :: Nfs/Nis Using OS 11.3 Machine As Router

Dec 2, 2010

I had an OS 11.3 machine running as an Nis server with Nfs, also providing dns, squid, samba shares and running apache

Internet connection provided by a netgear router at 192.168.0.1, server at 192.168.0.2, clients at 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4, etc. The clients all being configured to use the server for dns the squid running on it for their proxy, logging on with Nis using the exported server's Nfs /home share as /home on the clients

Everything was setup through Yast with some conf file editing being done later for samba and apache and all working brilliantly

Until ...

I added another network card to the server machine and set it up as a router, where they will be placed once ready the router providing the internet connection doesn't have gigabit ethernet

So I figured if I had gigabit cards in the clients and a gigabit card in the server set up for the internal zone and providing routing, then the clients using it as their router the local stuff would be more responsive, especially as they are using an nfs share for /home

I set the clients up to use the server at 192.168.1.1 for their router and changing their own local ip addresses to suit, i.e. 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3 etc and rebooted

Nis and nfs were no longer working, so I logged on as the local user, ecky, who's home directory isn't in the nfs share but at /ecky, the internet connection worked fine and so did everything else, dns, proxy, etc

I tried changing the nfs share and nis server to the internal card's ip, 192.168.1.1 and that didn't work either

Samba shares work at both 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.1.1, so my problem is that nis logons and nfs mounts don't work from either address

I've tried to give as much info as possible on what I've done without being too confusing ... don't know whether I succeeded

Darned annoying cos it took me a day and a half to get the gigabit card to detect properly in one of the machines...

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.2 Install - When Exit YaST The Network Doest Show Up - No Icon In The System Tray And Doesn't Even Try To Connect

Jan 16, 2010

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.

How do I setup a !working! connection through Network Manager, or maybe i do not do something properly.

Ubuntu :: Numbers To Put In Linux Machine Can Connect / Print To Windows Machine?

Apr 16, 2011

I remember it being really easy to add a printer attached to another computer using Ubuntu, but I don't remember exactly what made it so easy. All I know is that now that I have switched to Kubuntu the process has become much harder because now I have to find out some special locations, numbers etc. for it to connect to the printer. It's connected to a Windows XP machine on the other side of the house.
It says alot about 'contacting the network administrator' if I am unsure about what to put in. But I am more or less the network administrator. how to find out what numbers to put in so that my Linux machine can connect and print to the Windows machine? Or maybe someone knows a few commands to share? I go to Applications > Settings > System settings, Printer configuration, New Printer, New Network printer, and then there are a few options but I don't know which one to choose. Windows Printer via Samba, I guess? Then in the box that says smb://[enter stuff here] I need to put in info but I don't know how to find that info.

Ubuntu :: Add 2nd Win7 Hdd To A Working Machine For Dual Boot?

Jul 25, 2011

How do I add a win7 hard drive to a ubuntu 10.4 machine already running ubuntu, for dual boot? I really don't want to reinstall either one, so how do I fix grub to give Me a choice of OS's to boot up without using f12 key to choose boot order everytime ? , which works ok right now. I've done dual boots before, with both hdd's installed by installing winXp first then ubuntu, works fine in this order(winXp 1st then ubuntu ) because windows rewrites the boot order leaving ubuntu out of the mix. And even on the same hdd with partitions ,but can I add a hdd?. I removed linux hdd first then installed another hdd, installed win7, then replaced linux hdd. Both boot ok,but only by using the F12 key at start up and choosing a hdd to boot first.

General :: Installing Win7 On Machine Running Ubuntu ?

May 15, 2011

I've assembled a new computer to replace a dead Xp/Debian dual boot machine. I have been persuaded to go for Ubuntu as a Linux-only box, running Win7 as a virtual machine. I had some help setting it up with two discs in a Raid1 array, and it works pretty well. One of those discs is, I notice, set up as bootable.

But.... it is causing a major headache in respect of USB when emulating windows. I cannot use devices such as my USB printer at present, and I have an urgent task which requires printing capability and Windows. I have spent time trying to sort the USB problem without success and have decided to take an alternative route for the present.

I have purchased two extra discs which are not included in the Raid array, with the intention of using one of them for a Win7 installation, making the machine dual-boot for now. Eventually the intention is to revert to Linux only with a 4-disc Raid.

And don't know how to proceed. I formatted one of the new discs to NTFS using Ubuntu's Disc Utility, and tried to install Win7 on that disc. I get a warning that Windows cannot find a suitable disc on which to install. I've tried with XP as well, and this copies all its files before proudly announcing that there is no suitable disc space on this machine. Two new 1Tb discs and no space!
