I'm extremely new to SuSE Linux. I wanted to move away from Windows and so I decided to reload my Desktop with SuSE linux.I have had no trouble until now. I'm trying to connect to my work VPN connection. From my laptop (which unfortunately is Vista) I'm able to connect without any issues. However, when I tried out the KVPN application on my SuSE linux, it just doesn't work. I get the error:
Authentification has failed.
As a side note, when I type ping google, the packets are received 100% but when I ping my company address, no packets are received. Hope this info is useful.
(I'm probably going to have my forum account revoked due to excessive usage ) I'm setting a VPN connection on openSUSE 11.2. Using the networking icon on the tray I add a PPTP connection, set it up but I receive a message 'VPN connection failed'. Googling it up I tried changing a setting called 'refuse-eap' to 'yes' but it doesn't seem to work. Here's the result from the log file:
I had this issue with Fedora Core 13, so I switched my laptop back to OpenSuse and continued to have the problem. I can do a host lookup for software.opensuse.com and I get a correct response ... Code: linux-edxs:/etc # host software.opensuse.org software.opensuse.org has address 18.104.22.168 linux-edxs:/etc # host download.opensuse.org download.opensuse.org has address 22.214.171.124
Firefox works. Thunderbird finds my mail servers just fine. SSH works. But then when I try to do anything involving software updates or installation, I get ... Code: linux-edxs:/etc # zypper update Retrieving repository 'Updates for openSUSE 11.3 11.3-1.82' metadata  Download (curl) error for '[URL]': Error code: Connection failed Error message: Couldn't resolve host 'download.opensuse.org'
I've seen others here post queries about this, and I'll tell you what it was in my case: our DSL modem's DHCP server returns its own IPV4 address as the DNS server. When I looked at /etc/resolve.conf, I saw "nameserver: 192.168.50.254" on the last line -- the IPV4 address of our DSL modem. I manually inserted "nameserver" lines for our ISP's two actual DNS servers, and everything magically started working. Why this should confuse some software under Linux, but not other software, is a mystery. It also seems to be Gnome-specific (I didn't have this problem with OpenSuse 11.3 and KDE 4).
Ask if they're using Gnome, and ask them to check resolve.conf. A lot of DSL modems and home/small office routers return their own IP address (i.e., the same as the gateway address) for the DNS server on a DHCP query. The solution is to manually edit resolve.conf and put in your ISP's DNS server addresses manually. Incidentally, just my opinion, but Network Manager needs to make this an option. Under Windows, for example, you can select "automatically assign DNS" or you can enter them manually, even if you're using DHCP. It'd be nice if Network Manager permitted that.
I have a problem with the NTLM proxy we use in school. YAST proxy configuration won't work, it just says authentication error. We have to login with the user in DOMAINuser style and a password, in Firefox it works.
im on node1 when i type the command ssh node2@ip the terminal hangs up a bit then an error message stating that connection timeout but here is a thing: i cant ping to node2 but i can terminate the ping manually using ctrl+c when i terminate the ping usual message appears stating 10 packets transmitted, 100% loss
ps: when i go to node3 and ssh to node2 it works fine and also i can ping from node3 to node2 very fine. and the firewalls are down at all nodes -all wired connection over a switch
t "Failed to Connect Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at127.0.0.1:3580." when I try to open a Help File of one of the applications I have.My /etc/hosts file has its entries right:127.0.0.1 hostname.hostdomain hostnameMy firewall is also disabled.
nmap -sT -O localhost gives me (I have included some): 2401/tcp open cvspserver
I have just upgraded my openSUSE installation from 11.0 to 11.1 which everything is working great. Kudos to the development team and all those involved! I really like 11.1. One problem I have encountered is I cannot get clusterssh working. It appears to install just fine but whenever I try to execute like I did in 11.0 I get the following error: Connection to server failed -- (version 11.0) No protocol specified at /usr/local/bin/cssh line 1883
I tried to find a version for 11.1, rpm version that is, but no luck. I even download the source from SourceForge and still nada, same error. Not sure what is going on and looking for some assistance cause I really need clusterssh or another means to connect to several other machines to conduct changes.
Download (curl) error for [URL]... Error code: Connection failed Error message: Failed to connect to 2a01:e0c:1:1598::1: Network is unreachable
I read somewhere that I should deactivate IPv6, which I did with no success. It seems to happen since I upgraded gnome following this link : Archive:GNOME 2.30 - openSUSE My Internet connection is of course alive and working.
I am having an issue with KPackageKit, actually 2 issues but one makes it unusable. The major issue is that when I go to apply the updates I get the following error message (at least here are the details of the message)
I do not run my connection through a proxy and my internet works correctly. This is on a laptop I upgraded using zypper from 11.3 to 11.4 (I did the same with a desktop which does not have this issue). zypper refresh successfully refreshes the repositories, and the various Yast repo tools all work correctly. Additionally after I am shown the updates and am prompted for root pw, the packages will no longer show up for a while, each time it tries to look for updates the message comes through but they will show up after a while again. The other issue I have is that it requests my pw multiple times, this also happens on my desktop that actually will update. I get prompted twice, they are immediate and back to back. This one is a little minor annoyance but there should be no reason that it needs to make this request multiple times.
I'm currently running 11.3 and decided I'd try upgrading to 11.4 following the instructions here: SDB:System upgrade - openSUSEUnfortunately, my attempts are defeated at the point of trying to refresh the new repos; I get the following message (for the oss repo, in this case):
With 11.4 replaced by 11.3 in the repo url, it refreshes just fine. The only repository that works when I change 11.3 to 11.4 is the Packman repo. I'm not really sure why the connection fails for 11.4 but not 11.3!
Further info: I have an old router with no IPv6 support, but have IPv6 disabled system-wide. I can enter the url for the repositories into firefox and they come up just fine - it's only with zypper/YaST that I get the above error message.I also tried upgrading using the network CD but ran into the same sort of problem. In this case it may be because the CD installer doesn't disable IPv6. (I didn't want to download the DVD at my connection speed, and the KDE live CD is not listed as suitable for upgrade).
I am trying to Setup citrix ICA client 9 on Ubuntu 9.04 Server. I installed it very easily and I am not getting any lib error also. But when I try to connect to the citrix server, it fails with a pop up saying "Error in Network Connection Network or Dialup connection may be preventing ......" This is driving me crazy from 3 days. My project is to check the feasiblity of a Linux desktop
I have tried setting it up from YAST but no joy so far an I am clueless. The device is a Zonet ZEW2500P(04) USB wireless interface. From the sticky "My wireless doesn't work - a primer on what I should do next"

I made a system in CentOS5.5. I used Tomcat6 and PostgreSQL. But I couldn't enter my system. There are some error. And I don't understand what kind of error this. JDBCExceptionReporter.logExceptions(100) | SQL Error: 0, SQLState: null JDBCExceptionReporter.logExceptions(101) | Cannot create PoolableConnectionFactory (FATAL: Ident authentication failed for user "postgres") "postgres" is username. Is anybody knows anything about this error message.
I got an error while working with NetworkManager in new RHEL6/ Fedora14. I have a ZTE AC 2726 3G wireless modem. i had tried to connect it via NetworkManager . It only requires username and password to connect but the thing is that after putting all the credentials i had checked the option" available to all the user "and while i was trying to save the profile it shows the following error saving connection failed 0 can't write connection type 'cdma'I had google so many times around this error but no better solution is there .
I'm having a little problem here. That, or I'm missing the obvious staring me in the face. I have this file server, called toad. I nuked it's system disk, reorganising the partitions and upgrading to openSUSE 11.3 x64. I installed vsftd with "Yast FTP server", and the config looks OK. I even compared it with that of another machine. But when I try to connect, this is what I get:
user@mainmachine:~> ftp ftp> open toad Connected to toad.geuens.org. 500 OOPS: could not bind listening IPv6 socket
I'm prettige sure IPv6 is deactivated. The firewall is disabled on both machines. I've looked this over again and again. Can't find it. It's not the connecting machine, I've tried from another.
I have local and remote networks that have various printers. I can add any printer (local or remote) to any PC, except for one PC that's refusing to allow remote connection (it used to, but doesn't now!). The problem PC has two printers connected and work OK as a local printer, but both display same problem when attempting to connect from any remote PC via YaST. Using 'Connection Wizard> CUPS Server' connection method requires IP address of remote PC and printer name. But if I correctly select either of the two printers I get an error message:
"PING 192.168.1.149 (192.168.1.149) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 192.168.1.149: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=1.12 ms
Both printers are set to 'Accept Print Jobs' and 'Share Printers> Allow remote access' permits all networks to connect. why this PC is requiring the root password?
When the RPM runs it come up with this error. How do I install the required dependencies? I have added more repositories, but still there are a few dependencies missing. Is there a zypper/sudo -get or something available? Opensuse 11.1 Gnome
My problem is that the Mailserver in OpenSuse 11.1 (postfix, amavisd, spamassassin, clamAV en Razor) can not recieve e-mails, outgoing is ok. The problem started when I added 2 new users to de LDAP-server connected to Postfix.Some users can login, but most of them are getting the error: cant connect POP3 connection refused port 995.
I got connecting to our NAS over NFS working perfectly. Direct NAS Reading & Writing - How? But on Saturday I found out it had stopped working. For no apparent reason, not straight after an update either I don't think. When I manually try to mount --verbose:
mount 192.168.100.14:/IHL /mnt/IHL --verbose mount: no type was given - I'll assume nfs because of the colon mount.nfs: timeout set for Tue Jul 6 14:48:32 2010 mount.nfs: text-based options: 'addr=192.168.100.14' mount.nfs: Unable to connect to 192.168.100.14:111, errno 111 (Connection refused) mount.nfs: mount to NFS server '192.168.100.14:/IHL' failed: System Error: Connection refused
Corresponding fstab line that used to work just fine. 192.168.100.14:/IHL /mnt/IHL nfs auto 0 0 For now, I can drop back to Samba but this is a PITA as I can't open OpenOffice documents and write to them directly on the NAS. The fact smb://192.168.100.14/IHL works proves networking wise we're cool too. There is no firewall between this PC and the NAS, the NAS is instructed to allow my PC's LAN IP full access. OpenSuse's software firewall has been told to allow NFS Client too. Why would this setup break out of nowhere? How can I debug this best? I see nothing relevant in /var/log/messages How can I get it to work again? A hopeful reboot didn't do its usual wonders...
i seem to encounter lots of little troubles here and there... just need to get used to it.
now i`ve downloaded skype for opensuse and when i dbl click on it, it says: "you have failed to provide correct authentication please check any password or account settings" but it doesnt ask me anything before the error..
I am trying to setup multipath with failover policy on openSuSE 11. I have two qla2xxx HBA's installed and they appear to be working. Here is the output of "multipath -l" command
While testing, I pulled one of the two connection to SAN, and the connection failed over to second HBA connection to SAN. When I plug the cable back in, it does not fall back to original connection... It stays in failed state. Also, I noticed that failed disk (sdd disk) comes back as (sdg disk), which is probably why connection does not fall back to original HBA. But, when I run "/sbin/service multipathd restart" sdg disk shows as as enabled in multipath -l...
Now i will try to explain my problem.I just installed fresh 11.04 openSuSe 64bit.After doing all the configuration I rebooted and tried to login.Nothing happened.Googled some things, tried ctrl alt f1 and login as root, also tried to login as root, even changed my root password to be sure.Still, nothing happens, except for the thing that everytime I try to login as root it says authentication failed, but if i type my password bad it says bad password.
I recently isntalled opensuse 11.3 and I was trying to get the juniper ssl vpn working. It connects and everything goes fine until it prompts me for the root password. Once I do that, it errors out saying: "Modprobe for tun module failed" or something of that nature.
I recently purchased a Dell Vostro v130 which came with Win 7 pre-loaded. I've been using it for a few weeks with no problems, but now I'd like to install ubuntu studio. I made it through the the partitioning part but now I'm getting a networking error: "Network autoconfiguration failed. Your network is probably not using the DHCP protocol. Alternatively, the DHCP server may be slow or some network hardware is not working properly."
I've been using the wireless connection in win 7 without any problem so I don't know why I'm having a problem now.
I got a problem with my CentOS server. Somebody told me OpenVPN Requires different changes inside my firewall settings. That could be the problem why openvpn wont load..I receive this error on my CentOS panel when im trying to connect into the centos openvpn (with my winxp pc):
