OpenSUSE Network :: SUSE 11.3 No Network Access With Static IP
Aug 20, 2010
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.
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).
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 have a fresh install of SuSE 11.2. I have installed Communigate Pro (Email server) and Webmin. From my workstation (on the same LAN), I can access the web interfaces for both CGP and Webmin right after the server boots up. But after about 10 minutes or so, I can no longer access either web interface. The server itself still functions normally. I can get on the internet with the server, and I can control Webmin via localhost:10000.
The only thing that allows me to connect to it from my workstation again is to either restart the server, or go into "Network > Linux Firewall" and click "Apply Configuration". What's going on that makes my remote access stop working?
I'd like to have a set up where my Ethernet card has a static IP set up but my WiFi card doesn't.Currently I have a profile for this set up in Network Manager, however on boot up and every time I replug the cable Network Manager chooses the default "auto eth1" profile. I manually have tochoose my own profile for the Ethernet card every time. How can I make it default??I know the workaround would be to use ifup but then I lose the ability to quickly change access points for my WiFi card so that's not a solution for me
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.'
Recently our sys administrator decided to go to static IPs from the earlier assigned dynamic ones. This has created some havoc in my open suse 11 and I do not have access to network. I tried using the YAST network configuration manager, after everything is done it shows 'network wired' but unable to ping.
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.
Installed a security update for samba tonight via Opensuse updater.Now, when trying to access my home network an authentication box pops up (never used to)Asks me to enter authentication for my home network.I enter my username and password and hit enter. After a few seconds the authentication box pops up again askingfor the same indicating I have entered the wrong username / password combination (which I know I have not).
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'm having a strange problem with my network connection/DNS. I turn computer the on and it recognizes and connects to wireless or wired but I can't access any Internet resources or my router. If I ping the default gateway, I get no response and I get DNS errors from any network services that run at start up. If I stop and start the network daemon then it all works fine until the next time I turn on my laptop. It does this for both wireless and wired connection.
I've tried to edit the network interface information in YaST but it says that configuration is handled by knetworkmanager and I have no idea where that information is accessed. I should point out that it all worked fine until I tried to connect to open WAP at my school and couldn't so I connected to the wired network. Next morning I had this problem when connecting to my home network. My questions are 1. What could be the cause of this error and 2. where does one configure the network interfaces when using knetworkmanager
i have 3 comps(running suse 11.3) and a laptop(running vista sp2). i have installed samba on all suse comps. i have a printer attached to one of the comps and it has been shared also the internet connection on that comp has been shared. all the computers are connected using lan cables through an ethernet switch. i also have a wireless router which is connected to the ethernet switch.
I am able to view all the comps on the network except the laptop running vista. all the desktops are visible on the network and are able to print and share files on the network and also connect to the internet. the laptop running vista can connect to the internet but its not visible on the network and nor can it share files across the network or access the printer.
I have set up nagios on Suse 11.2 and it is working fine on the localhost. I can access localhost/nagios, <ipaddress>/nagios in the browser and it loads up the nagios webinterface. If I try on a computer on the network with <ipaddress>/nagios the request times out. I have tested that I can ping to and from both machines (nagios machine and the machine I am trying to access the interface from).Some detailsNagios is running in a hyper-v VM. I installed it through yast2. Communication is run via a switch and sonicwall firewall but firewall has allow all within the network.I have a feeling it's some apache2 setting that I haven't configured or something blocking port 80.
I'm new to SUSE. I had some virus issues with Windows Vista and decided to change my OS.
I have the modem set up and still can't get the internet to come up. I get the mozilla blank webpage, but I am connected to the internet server. What can I do to get full internet access if everything seems to be working they way it should except for the blank webpage? I know I must be missing something but what?
Also, how do I open Yast to use it? I think I opened it by accident and got some things done
setup my static network connection Here are my details :
IP : 172.16.152.137 Subnet : 255.255.255.192 Gateway : 172.16.152.191 Primary DNS : 172.16.0.1
but after this setup when i restart my network #service network restart while bringing up the eth0 the following message is displayed before [OK] - RTNETLINK answers : Invalid Argument now it seems either this setup is wrong or not sufficient to set up the connection, whenever i try to ping 172.16.0.1 it showing connect : Network is Unreachable
We're trying to replicate something that Windows servers can do. Basically on a Windows box, you can give it a static IP address, but there is an option to have it update the DNS server with it's IP and hostname. We are trying to do this on SUSE 11.I know I can get this function to work on SUSE if the box is set up as with DHCP. What we're having difficulty is when the server is set up as a Static IP to get it to update the DNS server
I have virtual box installed which automatically installed bridges for my network adapters. This has always worked fine. I'm attempting to set up a static IP for this machine now. I use NetworkManager, and the physical connection (eth0) is set to static IP of 0.0.0.0, and the bridge (br0) attached to eth0 was set to DHCP. I changed br0 to my desired static IP and lost net connectivity (I'm talking about the host, not the virtual machine - I'll get the host working first). Re-enabling DHCP restores connectivity. So I don't know what the problem is, but I am unable to assign a static IP to the bridged connection. Do I have to do this differently? Do I need to remove the bridge so I am using just eth0 again, assign the static IP to eth0, and then re-install the bridge? I haven't tried that yet because a) I don't know how to remove & reinstall the bridge, because it was done automatically by Virtual Box installation, and b) I could probably do that if I had the time figure it out but right now I don't.
I set up a static IP on wlan0 on another machine using Network Manager and it works fine. That machine also has Virtual Box installed but for some reason doesn't have the bridged connections. (Perhaps because it runs Ubuntu, not OpenSUSE, if that makes any difference)
how I can define a local static IP address (so that I can run a web server off of the same IP, rather than letting my router DHCP it)?I've tried doing the YaST->Network Devices->Network Settings->Traditional Method with ifup->Set NIC to desired IP->Set Default Gateway to router address method, and afterwards I can't even get into my router anymore (not even responding to ping).
I'm maintaining a very modest network at home, with OpenSUSE as OS on the server. I got the DHCP and routing working by following the instructions in the wiki. However, every time I run dhclient on the server/router, it appears my own DHCP server assigns an address to the internal network card despite the fact I specifically assigned it to be static using Yast. The situation resolves itself when I restart the network services with the command /etc/init.d/network restart. Otherwise no problem, but it also seems the internal network card gets a "new" IP from my server every time the external card requests one from the ISP. This is more of an issue.
I have a problem with tightvnc, when I set up a dinamic ip with networkmanager it works fine but if I set up a static address connection it display an error "You have been unexpectedly disconnected from 'hometsa-comp'. Would you like to reconnect?"
"Couldn't convert 'hometsa-comp' to host address" I have setup the ip address, netmask, gateway and dns server in the network manager static address, it works when I setup the vnc connection using ip address instead of hostnames.
How do I assign IPv4 and IPv6 static addresses permanently in OpenSUSE 11.2? Currently I am only able to assign either IPv4 or IPv6 static address not both. I cannot find even the interfaces file(/etc/sysconfig/network/interfaces).
I would like to set-up a pretty fast a running apache. I would like to use him so to launch a pretty small web site of 10 static html pages. At this time there is no security concerns (even though I want to do it right) , because the computer has not even ethernet cable. I have some experience, 8 years ago I Was setting up virtual hosts in fedora, so this process is not a blackbox for me.
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.
