I am a web designer and don't know anything about servers. My server service provider use Linux environment and sometime it would be much easier for me to have a local server to test my websites. So I have install a fresh copy of Ubuntu 10.04 to one of my computer. Half way installation, the system tell me something like couldn't configure the DHCP, I have checked that my router has enabled DHCP servers (D-Link 615). After installation and logon, I use sudo pppoeconf command and try to set the network.
But it said something like no PPPoE access. I know I am very dull, and maybe get ban from this forum because I have not read the instruction, it will be great if you can point me to the right page. All I want to do is have something like a web space + MySQL and support PHP to work with.
I've installed the Ubuntu 10.04 Server onto a PPC G4 Mac just for the experience of setting up a server. During the installation process Ubuntu couldn't auto-configure my DHCP Network. I'm using the airport card on a wireless network. How can I manually configure the network once Ubuntu is installed.
I am puzzled with trying to configure a linux (openSUSE) client to dhcp to eBox DHCP server. I am using dhclient to lease an IP address with dhclient eth0 -s 10.45.48.108 and get a response
openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 10.45.48.108 port 67 interval 4 openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPOFFER from 10.45.48.108 openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPREQUEST on eth0 to 10.45.48.108 port 67 openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: send_packet: Network is unreachable openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: send_packet: please consult README file regarding broadcast address.
The server reports eBox141 dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:0c:29:3e:57:a3 (openSUSE11232CL1.domain.net) via eth0 eBox141 dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 10.45.200.2 to 00:0c:29:3e:57:a3 (openSUSE11232CL1.domain.net) via eth0
I interpret this as the server receives the request and the client accepting it but the lease does not last long and the connection breaks. what this could be and why the connection breaks? Or my undestanding is totally wrong on how it works and should work? And BTW, where is that README file that's referenced in the message I receive on the client?
For strange reasons I was stuck without an Internet connection for about 2 hours. I couldn't establish a connection, even local network only via DHCP. This was on Natty. After 30mins passed, I rebooted to Maverick only to get the same results. With nothing else to do, one hour after, I booted into Windows XP to play Dragon Wars 2. Lo and behold! I had Internet connection. At first I thought it was a technical problem with my ISP. So I rebooted hurriedly to Natty and after several minutes of trying to coax Network Manager for a damn fre*kin* connection it still couldn't.
Back again to XP, I couldn't believe that I wasn't experiencing some kind of on/off signal from my ISP. It wasn't just a coincidence that I could connect on XP and not on Natty. The connection was fine! And I've reason to believe for the past 2 hours, my ISP wasn't the culprit. .. this time it was on my end.Now - on Natty - I manually configured the connection (Instead of DHCP) to be greeted with the familiar Connection Established prompt from notify-OSD.
I've tried running the regular package upgrade as well as the alternate cd (i386) upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10. This is the error I keep getting no matter how I try to upgrade: Error during commit 'E:Couldn't configure pre-depend x11-common for x11-xkb-utils, probably a dependency cycle.'

I have installed RHEL 5.1 in VMWare 6 I want to configure one RHEL Server with DNS & DHCP Also I would like to PXE boot, whenever I create a new VMWare Client(RHEL), the installation should be initiated via network boot
i'd like to configure a dhcp server on my RHEL 5.3 or Fedora 14, since i don' have a legitimate DNS server....n it asks for option domain-name " "what do i put in there.. me got two nics for my WAN(dhcp enabled) n LAN...i just want to parctice at home for my future job...
This is probably an odd request, but figured I'd ask in case someone knew. We have a lab that has the IP range 220.127.116.11/16 (255.255.0.0). The lab gateway/DHCP assigns an IP in the range of 18.104.22.168-22.214.171.124. I want to set up my own DHCP server on a specific range, for example 126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52. I create a new host fine, but since it's set for DHCP, it uses the DHCP server at 184.108.40.206. Is there a way to force it to use a different DHCP server on the client side? I realize that I can work around this with exclusions on the 220.127.116.11 DHCP server, or use iptables to deny DHCP requests to specific MACs, but wanted to know if there was an (easier?) way to configure the client to use the 18.104.22.168 DHCP server instead of the 22.214.171.124 server?
I need to place an Ubuntu machine on a network where I have a DHCP server which does not configure the Degault Gateway parameter (we don't want ordinary users to browse the internet). Is it possible to leave the machine using DHCP and define the Default Gateway manually (as in Windows XP i.e.)? How?
Setup a DNS/DHCP/Directory server on Debian? I would like to configure the things in Debian so that can join Linux and Windows(if possible as m not sure yet) clients to the directory server. Any links to setup both Forward and Reverse lookup zone in the environment.
I setup DHCP on CentOS 5.5. My issue is whenever my client leases, the server gave the last available IP. eg. my dhcp ip range is 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.100, the server gave me 192.168.1.100, then 192.168.1.99 for the second machine. How to configure the dhcp to give the front numbers, eg 192.168.1.10 first, then 192.168.1.11 and so on. Then on option domain-name-servers 126.96.36.199; how can I include second nameserver ? 188.8.131.52 See below for my dhcpd.conf
I've tried to configure DRBL server to use Clonezilla and that is required me to setup DHCP, TFTP servers.But I've gotten a lot of errors from them - so please look at my attachments from /var/log/messages and dhcpd.conf - help me to find out what are wrong with them.
I am just trying to get SSH working between 2 local machines on OpensSuse 11.4 boxes. I have the SSHD daemon running, the firewall is configured to allow SSH to pass, and I am using SSH's password authentication. However, my machines cannot see each other. Anytime I try to SSH, I get "Could not resolve hostname<hostname>: Name or service not known."
Of course, that leads me to believe I need an entry in my /etc/hosts file. However, I use DHCP, and therefore have a dynamic IP address. Therefore, my hosts names will only be good until the next IP renewal. How in the world do I configure SSH with a DHCP assigned address?
I need to install/configure a server (dns, dhcp, etc) and since im running Debian I want to configure a Debian server, but i want to do it on a virtual machine, cause i dont want to have all that stuff on my system, now Im wondering whats the best screen recorder that i can use on Debian for this purpose.

I am trying to install Ubuntu server edition on an old HP XT963 that recently came into my possession. I mainly just wanted to use it as a home file server and print server. I have been running ubuntu desktop on my laptop for a little under a year, but this is my first go at the server edition.
While ubuntu was installing it said "network autoconfiguration failed," I hit continue, thinking I could figure out how to configure it later. After lots of googling I still haven't figured out what exactly is wrong.
Code: auto lo iface lo inet loopack after googling around I made it look like:
I would like to provide more information such as ifconfig and any other commands but I'm not exactly sure how I would do that without being able to copy/paste. I guess I would have the command dump the output to a file, but I'm not familiar with the -options this being my first time CLI-only.
