OpenSUSE Network :: Cannot Seem To Create Tun Device Using Ifconfig
Dec 13, 2010
I cannot seem to create a tun device using ifconfig, even though the module is loaded, and the node tun is present in /dev/net and appears to have correct access permissions, trying to use nstx which requires the tun device. Only thing I can think of is adding an alias, but not sure where, since there is no /etc/modprobe.conf or /etc/modules.conf in SUSE 11.3.
I'm on opensuse 11.4 (11.3 won't work with my monitor).
My computer gets internet through wireless and I want to share that internet through its ethernet port. So far I've tried using Knetworkmanager to create a network bridge between my wireless and wired connections. I created a new wired connection and shared it using the ip address settings. I was able to get both connections active, but the device hooked up via ethernet had no internet connectivity.
I also tried this command: echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
but another test resulted in the same fashion (no internet on wired). I believe anything I add to /proc should have an immediate effect, correct?
I have created my own distribution with susestudio.com , based on jeOS template and it works well But I have some problems with network configuration. I make a default configuration with susestudio ( configuration -> General -> network ) and I put for example 172.16.0.185 address. I also put a script which configures IP address with different informations coming from for example a serial port to make my own IP address. This script make the new address and call the ifconfig system program. For example, the script calls "ifconfig eth0 172.16.0.182". And now, I can ping the two addresses, 172.16.0.185 and 172.16.0.182. Is this normal ? I thought the new command "ifconfig eth0 172.16.0.182" would overwrite the old value ( 172.16.0.185 ). It works as this on other distribs ( like ubuntu ) but not on opensuse.
I know that I can have 2 addresses but using the following syntax : "ifconfig eth0:1 A.B.C.D" (if kernel supports aliases ) , and I don't know if it is normally possible to have 2 address from the same subnet. How can I overwrite the default config , and not to have the first address available ?
I am using Suse 10 sp2. By running ifconfig I am changing the mac address. Everything is happening successfully, but this is adapter losing the network connection. Even when I give a static IP. I am not able to ping any other IP.
I have been noticing a trend on boxes running 11.4 getting RX dropped packets where prior to 11.4 they did not get them. Basically every box running 11.4 now logs dropped RX packets. Have tried changing cables, and in one case replaced the NIC with a different brand (and driver) nic. Also played with receive buffers and yet the counters still increment. In addition to OpenSUSE, I run several operating systems to include Centos, Scientific Linux, Debian, OpenIndiana, HP-UX, VMS and so forth. So far this anomaly has only shown up on machines running OpenSUSE 11.4. Any one else noticing this on your OS 11.4 machines? If so, were you able to resolve?
The computer and system in question is the laptop from my description and openSUSE 11.3 with a different kernel from this repository :[URL]..free to move this thread if it should reside in the beta/prerelease forums section. The IMHO relevant information about my hardware and system is shown below.
The kernel I'm using :
Code: grzes@opensuse:~> Linux opensuse.local 22.214.171.124-1-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-02-25 19:59:41 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux The hardware and drivers I'm using : Code: 02:00.0 Network controller : Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) [168c:002b] (rev 01)
I have a laptop running 11.2 with an internal Broadcom-based Wi-Fi card that's working fine. I'm trying to get 802.11n going with the WUSB600N. The USB ID on this device is 1737:0079. I believe this means it's a "V2" with an RT3572 chip.
No driver loads for this device when it's plugged in. If I do a "modprobe rt2870sta", a driver loads, and syslog shows "rtusb init" and "usbcore: registered new interface driver rt2870". But ifconfig -a doesn't show a new network interface. I've also tried building the RT3572 driver from the manufacturer's web site. It builds fine, and modprobe will load it, but I get the same results as the rt2870sta driver.

A network client computer gets ip address from dhcp server, loads initrd and failed on Loading Istallation System stage 4 or 5. If I try to continue installation in manual mode I get an error net_activate: ifconfig eth0 up failed I tryed network cards from different vendors it did not help. Ubuntu linux installs successfully in current environment.
In my YaST Network Settings (11.3), I see an entry labelled "Unknown Network Device" how to remove the confusion? The Overview tab also correctly lists my three known network devices (listed below), as does the Hardware Information utility. This is the output of lspci, and as far as I can tell, is accurate and complete. So what has YaST seen that it can't identify?
I have openSUSE 11.2 installed and i need to create a gateway server that allows virtual private network connections. I want to play with my friends some lan games, but we are in different networks, so i want to create this gateway server so we can connect with VPN clients to this server and play freely.
I just added a 2 port network card to a system that is running Fedora 11, but it is INACTIVE. I open the Network Device Control to activate it but there is no network ports in Network Device Control. It is empty.It looks like the system recognize the card and loaded correct driver.
I have a problem with the network. Worth two network cards and Ian wan. Do not take the ip. When the system boots not included until you do the command ifconfig eth0 up. The network card is connected to a router, he does not see it. Router working, tested. Network card is working well, tested on Windows. RX RT packages go, withheld support for ipv6 and packages no longer go.
I'm trying to install a Linux driver for my wireless network card (D-Link DWL-G510) on my Red Hat Linux 7.1 machine with a 126.96.36.199 kernel. I downloaded the serial monkey driver from the sourceforge site and was able to successfully compile the rt73 module and load it into the kernel. The problem now is that everytime I issue the command ifconfig wlan0 up it keeps returning with the following error message: wlan0: unknown interface: No such device.
I'm at a loss as to what to do here. I specifed wlan0 as the alias for the rt73 module in the modules.conf and also tried to load the driver with the command modprobe rt73 ifname=wlan0 (this specifies the interface name according to the instructions packaged in the driver), but the error message still keeps coming up.
Is there something else I need to do in Linux to configure the wlan0 part or is the module not recognizing the wireless network card? It would be quite strange if it is the later since all information from the Internet is indicating this is the linux driver I should be using for mentioned wireless card.
I am currently trying to get my server box to recognize my Samsung epic 4g (sprint) which is rooted and has usb tether enabled. It works perfectly and effortlessly on my ubuntu desktop box, but I hook it up to my server box and ifconfig does not find a usb0 device like my desktop does. I am running 10.4.1 on both desk and server box.
Centos el5xen x86_64 in a company network, novell-netware, Static IP I have several issues with the Xen network configuration. This configuration worked before, and was maded by a other personn with a higher level in centos and network . I'm trying to re-install xen in bridging mode.
1) The dom0 ping in the company network, but can't acess to the Internet.
I de-activated firewall, iptables and SE-Linux for the test.
the ifconfig-a command return eth0 lo sit0 (IPV6 encapsuled in IPV4) vif0 vnet0 but no Peth0 Physical device
I just installed Fedora 13 from the Live CD. FIrst off I read the guide and the first step doesn't even work for me. System>Administration>Network does not exist. If I go to System then Preferences I see a Network Manager but it looks nothing like what these screen shots look like. [url]
No wireless card show up in the wireless tab of Network Manager. How can I fix this since my card is listed in ifconfig and iwconfig. Wifi card is a Zonet zew2500p
I messed up my Network Connections when I put a different NIC in my computer. Now I just went back to using the old NIC. It shows up in ifconfig, but the GUI Network Connections is blank. When I manually Add the connection back to the GUI Network Connections, the settings are not reflected when doing ifconfig.For example, I change the IP address for eth0 in GUI Network Connections, save the settings,
I have got Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Inspiron Laptop. Can't get anywhere with wireless network. Tried a few bits of poking it blindly with a stick:
matthew@ubuntu:~$ lshw -C network Warning: you should run this program as super-user. *-network Description: Network controller Product: BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY Vendor: Broadcom Corporation Physical id: 0 Bus info: pci@0000:0c:00.0 Version: 01 Width: 64 bits Clock: 33MHz Capabilities: bus_master cap_list Configuration: driver=b43-pci-bridge latency=0 Resources: irq:17 memory:f69fc000-f69fffff *-network .....
I reckon *-network DISABLED is a problem, I tried sudo ifconfig wlan0 up but that didn't work. The output of that and lspci are on the ubuntu side of my machine. I have also tried pressing my wireless on/off key (F2) but that doesn't work either.
I'm trying to mount my NAS device via NFS with suse 11.1, but up to now it failed. The NAS does support NFS, but it requires a UID and a user name and up to now I could not figure out the correct nfs mount options for that.
If I just make mount 192.168.0.2:/nas1 /mnt a get the error message "mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting 192.168.0.2:/nas1". So can somebody please tell me the correct options for user name and user id which the mount should use. And, preferable the correct entry for the etc/fstab file to make this mount being executed automatically during startup. I studied the mount(8) and nfs manpages several times, but I do still have no idea how to make it.
then I can access via ssh by two addresses the one I got from dhcp (10.17.148.223) and the static one (10.17.148.26) I put ifconfig and and 10.17.148.223 appear on eth0 I restart my server and I just can access from 10.17.148.223 I have to put
ifdown eth0 ifup eth0
Again...to access by my static ip, y can access my page by its dns on my server, but I cant access from other computer...so, I guess when my static adress appears on ifconfig I would be able to access my page from other computer...
I have installed CentOS. I have two ethernet card (one onboard and one PCI). I am able to set ip for realtek ethernet card and my atheros(on board) is not shown in network ifconfig shows only one ethernet card (PCI) hen i gave the command lspci i got the following output
I have installed VMWare on my laptop. Host operating system - Opensuse 11
Two virtual machines - Both of them have Opensuse 11 as Guest Operating System.
When I start both virtual machines I get the following message.
"Message from <local host name> : The network bridge on device vmnet0 is not running. The virtual machine will not be able to communicate with the host or with other machines on your network. Virtual device Ethernet0 will start disconnected"
I cannot ping to another Virtual machine from one virtual machine. I get "Host Unreachable" message.
I installed 11.1 when it first came out. The PC I used gave up the ghost and I bought a refurbie, HP xw4100 and installed the 11.1 drive in it. All works except Internet connection. I am befuddled, bemused, confused and at a complete loss! The router on USB is not detected.

I finally installed openSUSE along side ubuntu and xp in my ThinkPad EDGENow I am facing issue with toggling the wi-fi, I had no such problem in ubuntu.Seems like there is some issue in the thinkpad-acpi module.I use fn+F9 to toggle the wifi, which toggles both bluetooh and wifi, but on openSUSE it only toggles bluetooth.acpi_listen in ubuntu gives me the below result when I press fn+F9ibm/hotkey HKEY 00000080 00001005but in openSUSE its blank but bluetooth gets toggled. dmesg from ubuntu:
