OpenSUSE Network :: Configure Proxy Settings For Browsers?

If I configure my OpenSuSE 11.2 system to use a proxy server in the YaST Proxy module, do I still need to configure my browser (i.e Firefox) to use these proxy settings, or is it done automatically under the covers?

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.4 Subversion Proxy Settings ?
I installed openSuse 11.4 (KDE). It was excellent - everything was working great except for Subversion which use to work fine on 11.3 (command line is broken on 11.4, Eclipse/Subclipse works fine on both).

Subversion kept going to the proxy server instead of going directly to our internal Subversion server. I tried (1.) setting the proxy settings in Yast with excluding for our Subversion server, (2.) tried adding the usual settings in ~/.subversion/servers (which worked fine in 11.3). I could not check out on the command line from the local server, I can check out from external servers, eg: Google.

(I installed from the live CD download. I think this is using something some plasma widget thing for the network management.) Why is Subversion not using the usual ~/.subversion/servers file for its settings in 11.4 (KDE)? What is it using and how can I make it not use the proxy server? (Someone else mentioned his Subversion only started working after he used some Chrome plug-in to change the proxy settings but had no idea why?)

OpenSUSE :: Sharing Of Chromium Settings / Share The Browsers And Email Settings?
I have a triboot windows suse 11.3 stable and suse 11.3 factory pc, I would like to share the browsers and email settings between the suse stable and factory, I succeed with thunderbird and firefox moving the /home/.thunderbird and /home/.mozilla in an ext3 shared partition and linking these in the respecive /homes, I found that there isn't a /home/.chromium folder, I found probably /usr/lib64/chromium could be the same as /home/.mozilla for firefox, but I don't know if is secure or can damage my system to move this in a ext3 partition and then link this to the respective /usr/lib64/chromium, /usr/lib64/chromium has root owner, root group, visible and modifiable for root and only visible for group and other.

OpenSUSE Network :: Firewall Settings - Configure - Interface Isn't Assigned To Any Zone?
I have a work desktop plugged into the work network. As I opened my firewall settings I noticed that it is turned off. My question is how should I configure it? I saw that the interface isn't assigned to any zone... I should assign to internal zone and open some port that I need in order to work? There are some guidelines for configuring the firewall?

Ubuntu :: Setting Global Network Proxy Settings?
I think there is an application which lets you set the proxy settings for all applications. I remember seeing something like this in Gnome's network menu but now I'm using XFCE.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Configure Wireless From YAST> Network Settings?
I am trying to configure a wireless connection from YAST under the Network Settings tool.It doesn't seem to do anything. My USB wifi device is detected in YAST > Hardware and I am using the module it says Hardware is using. It doesn't seem to save the module under YAST> Network Settings> Network Card Setup. Is this tool broken or useless? It seems setting up WiFi should be easier than this. YAST should work shouldn't it?

OpenSUSE Network :: Web Browsers Not Working?
I recently upgraded from 10.3 to 11.2, keeping 10.3 and using Gnome. I can't get web access through various browsers but can ping outside IP's and the ISP DNS works. I'm connected through a DSL modem.

The browsers tried so far include Firefox 3.5.4 -> 3.6, Konquerer, and Lynx.

I have used the Network manager in Yast to make the changes and have compared network files in both 10.3 and 11.2. The settings are the same.

Debian :: Configure Virtual Network Settings On XP Host Dual Nics
Debian 40r4a
VMware server v1.03
XP sp3.

Currently setting up test development environment for our sw engineers. This is the scenario Id like to get to. I am running a debian virtual machine on my xp host using vmware server. There are two physical network adapters in the physical machine one connected to our main lan and the other to a development board running network/telephone services. In the virtual environment I want to be able to connect one virtual network card to each network segment. One to pull down files from our lan (using an ftp client) and the other to connect to external hardware for development purposes.(both dhcp)

Ideally I'd like one nic to be configured in NAT mode and one in bridged mode. However I only ever see one network interface in debian (eth2). I can configure this to use NAT or bridged. In bridged I get an IP address for one of the cards and can ping one of the subnets. In NAT I can ping both of the subnets but I still only see one network interface when I do ifconfig -a (eth 0). I am puzzled and think I need to configure the virtual network settings in the vmware server console in order to see two nics in debian, but am not sure how to do this. I created this image on a different machine that the one its currently on now (does this make a difference).

OpenSUSE Install :: OS 11.3: Configure The Monitor Settings?
The default Gnome desktop now has a 1600x1200 @ 75 Hz which fit my monitor but is a little too big (or at least the font sizes are too small). I would like to switch to a lower resolution. I don't find anywhere in Yast how to configure the monitor settings. No more sax2, no more /etc/X11/xorg.conf? What does replace them?

I mean, where can I set which monitor I"m using (Targa TM4896-1), what are the screen resolutions supported, if I want hardware 3D acceleration (or not), if I want to use dualhead (Matrox G400 DH)?

OpenSUSE Network :: No Network Connection After Firwall Settings Changed / Get It To Work?
I deleted the firewall files "K09SuSEfirewall2_init", "K01SuSEfirewall2_setup", "S11SuSEfirewall2_setup" and "S01SuSEfirewall2_init" from "/etc/rc.d/rc5.d" in order to disable the firewall when rebooting.

As a consequence all network services are not working. I can't connect to any other machine nor to the internet.

I rebuilt the symbolic files based on the ones for runlevel 3, but still no network services are available.

Any suggestions how to make it work again? I'm using Suse 11.3.

OpenSUSE Network :: Unable To Ping The Default Gateway When Using Custom Settings - Unreachable Network
I installed openSUSE on one of my work system. The network port wasn't working when I was installing, but works fine now (checked in Windows). But for some reason, I am not able to configure the network. I used both Dynamic and Static IPs (both work fine in Windows) but still no go. I am using Yast Control Center for this purpose. I can't even ping the default gateway when I am using custom settings. When I use dynamic settings, it says Unreachable Network.

OpenSUSE Network :: Two Network Cards With Different Settings For Internet Access
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.

OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Get An IP Address Yast2 And Network Settings Displays?
I've updated a desktop from 11.1 to 11.2 with the NET CD. After completion everything worked fine, though I have some issues with the NIC. been looking on the net and the provided solutions haven't been able to resolve the matter. After reboot I don't get an IP address, I go into Yast2 and network settings displays:

I have to delete the unknown device everytime after a reboot in order to get a new IP address. After that all works as it is suppsed to. I've been looking into the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and deleted all that was in there,

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 'Configure Display Settings' Icon Shows Monitor As 'Unknown'
I've just installed OpenSUSE 11.2 on a new machine. Because I was still using another machine as my main box while building the new one, the monitor attached when it was installed has a resolution of 1280x1024 @ 77Hz. I've now moved it to be my main machine and the monitor is a widescreen 1680x1050 @ 60Hz model. When I boot it normally the screen fails to come up - even GDM doesn't show. If I boot in failsafe mode the system comes up fine, but in 1280x1024 mode. The 'Configure display settings' icon shows the monitor as 'Unknown'. Couple of things I tried:

1) Switched to runlevel 2 and logged in as root. Ran Xorg -configure and looked at the that was installed, but it just had generic info for the monitor:


2) While still in runlevel 2 and logged in as root I did a startx. This brought up the X display in 1680x1050 ok, and clicking on the 'Configure display settings' icon showed it had correctly identified my monitor and had set the size and frequency correctly.

3) Given the results of (2), I then tried logging in as myself in runlevel 2, did startx again, but this time the display failed to come up again.

OpenSUSE Network :: Get Updates Through A Proxy?
I've just installed OpenSuse 11.2 64-bit and, on the whole, I'm pretty happy with it. I'm connected to the network and I am posting this from my new system. However I cannot get any software updates or install new packages

I'm behind a (non-authenticated) proxy and, obviously, Firefox has no problem.

If I use Online Updater I just get error messages like this:

PackageKit Error repo-not-available: Failed to download ./repodata/primary.xml.gz from Index of /update/11.2
(but the site is available in Firefox).

I have tried manual updates through Yast (after setting the proxy) and get pretty much the same thing.

So far I have set the proxy in:

Computer -> Yast -> Network Services -> Proxy (That has a test function which confirms it is working).
Applications -> System Settings -> Network Settings (This tells me that the network settings are controlled by NetworkManager and can't be modified by Yast).

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.2 - Use Proxy Server Non HTTP
I need to have Opensuse 11.2 use my proxy server here in the office and it is by hostname/ip:8080 only not HTTP. The problem is using Yast2 I don't have the option of using the proxy that way it wants http. I've been using opensuse on and off since 9 (great flavor BTW my favorite) Easy as you need it to be and just as complicated as you want it to be, a perfect mix.
