OpenSUSE Network :: Configure Proxy Settings For Browsers?
Aug 28, 2010
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?
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?)
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.
I use openSUSE 11.1 and my YAST can't connect Internet: How to configure my YAST Internet configuration through proxy server in order to download and install the programs (for example dwnld and install WML from [URL])
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?
Whenever I set some font settings in these two web browsers, and apply them; they revert back to other fonts. The reason for this behavior is not known to me. How to set the required fonts and not allow these two browsers to change them on their own.
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?
SPM has just two options 1. Direct connection(no proxy) to internet and 2.manual proxybut my firefox cannot connect to internet with no proxy, It can connect to internet only on auto-detect proxy settings option.Right now my SPM is not working. I can ping the SPM server from my console but apt-get is not working
I have installed squid as my proxy server in ubuntu 10.04 standalone system..Why i have installed squid in standalone sytem is, my friends used to access my system to browse sites and download files..So i have installed squid to block porn sites and downloads..But they simply bypass the proxy by disabling it..I know there is some way to force all browsers to go through proxy using iptables..But how to acheive it..? Is the below command suits my need..?If not what modification should i do..?
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)?
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.
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.
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,
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'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 xorg.conf.new 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.
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:
Firefox /etc/sysconfig/proxy /etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf 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).
I set HTTP proxy: http://10.*.*.*:6666/ choose Use the same proxy for all protocols fill my user name and password An error occurred when testing:
* Port number too large: ****** (password number) curl: (3) Port number too large: ****** (password number) * About to connect() to proxy 10.*.*.* port 6666 (#0) * Trying 10.*.*.*... % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current
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.
I have installed openusese 11.2 since about 2 months ago. Everything running well. But since the network admin deploy proxy server, I couldn't get update than.[URL]this problem, was that related to proxy settings?Or did I miss something else?
The proxy I set is not being used or recognized by some apps. For instance dropbox would be able to detect the proxy settings i set using yast>network>proxy while firefox would not recognize it. In firefox i tried using the automatic proxy and using the system proxy. Either of the two won't detect it. However, when I manually set it in firefox's preference it would work. For empathy the proxy is not recognized as well. In addition, can I set the proxy in the empathy app itself? I could not locate it. Also the online updates and repository checks recognizes the proxy I set up.
By the way I am using GNOME 3 as my DE. I would also like to share that when I use the network settings > proxy of gnome 3 none of the apps recognize the proxy.
I work behind an ISA proxy. I have to authenticat with domainuser. When defining proxy settings with yast, I cannot put "domainuser" in the URL, so I add it in text mode in /etc/sysconfig/proxy for all protocols. Example: [URL] Then I have to logout/login in order yast to work.
BUT: - I cannot add communauty repositories. - zypper fails
In order to make zypper and adding repositories to work, I have to suppress one of the two back-slash like:
Im new in this world of linux and suse. I have just installed the opensuse 11.2 in a Dell Inspiron 5160. Such laptop has a BCM4306 Wireless LAN controller. When I tried to configure a wlan connection, I found that the firmware was not installed. After looking in different forums, I installed the firmware b43. Now, my wlan card is abled to find the wireless of my router.
I have tried to configure a connection with YAST as well as with Network Manager, but both cases failled. Specifically, when I use Network manager, Im able to see in the applet my connection, how strong is the signal, but I see a yellow symbol (in one forum, such a box is shown with a green symbol).
I have check many time all about the secutity, encryption, and so one and all seems to be correct. But when I open the mozila firefox or the konqueror browser, no chance to surffer in internet. Now Im just a step to become crazy. The drivers are ok, the information about the router and the keys are ok, but in such a way, I am still harmloss.
I have just installed opensuse 11.3. I am absolutely new for Linux and for this forum. I have tried to open Network manager to configure my wlan. But its not starting. How to start network manager and configuring my wlan.
I'm going to come right out and say I am a complete novice with Linux/SUSE. The equipment I'm having a problem with is a little web-server that was purchased by my employer that has, quite suddenly, stopped functioning. I was changing the IP address within YaST, at which point the device offered to update itself, which I saw no harm in. Post-update, however, I was unable to so much as ping the device.
I tried "ifconfig eth0": "Error fetching interface information: Device not found." I went into network settings via YaST and found that there are two cards now listed as: RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller Both IP addresses are "Not configured". The information pane, for both cards, cites:
RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controllerBusID : 0000:02:00.0 Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details. The only difference in either of the cards is the BusID (0000:02:00.0 and 0000:03.00.0)
I can neither edit nor delete either of these cards. As I mentioned, I am a total Linux novice, and am at a total loss for what to do next, or even how to find critical information about the system itself. I know enough to check dmesg, but not enough to have any clue what to look for in the output.
