Ubuntu Networking :: HTTPS Sites Like FB And Hotmail Not Loading Properly ?
Jun 22, 2011
I am using Lenovo G550 laptop wid Intel Dual Core 2GHz, 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, etc. Earlier I had 2 partitions 187GB (Windows 7) and other 33GB of Lenovo drivers. I split 187GB to 143GB (Windows 7) while remaining 44GB for Ubuntu 10.10!
Everything's been working fine except for internet. I am unable to load many https sites like fb, hotmail, etc. Gmail is working absolutely fine.
I did some research on this forum and disabled ipv6! I also checked for firewall and it was disabled. Then I also configured Open DNS and checked if it is working fine. But nothing has helped.
When I connect to these sites without 's' in https (i.e. only http) these sites load fast. I enter my username n password and then I am redirected to a compulsory https site which then takes me to a page like this (shown in thumbnails)! I have tried Chrome n Firefox 3.6 (which have SSL and TLS checked in preferences)! All these sites are working fine on Windows 7. But I don't want to use Windows 7 every now and then because it has become too slow and boring! Please help me with this.
I connect to internet using DSL wired (BSNL Broadband 256Kbps)
I managed to configure my W890i phone to get access to internet through an ubuntu-based computer. It's very easy to use the phone to give internet access to the computer, but the opposite is quite more tricky. For that I've done the following
----On the phone---
-Set the USB network option to "through computer", so that the phone uses the computer's internet connection and not the opposite.
-Decide and set "Shared Network" parameters: user, pasword and workgroup.
-In "conectivity-> internet connection" set "allow local network" to "yes"
----On Ubuntu 10.04---
-Install samba, samba-client, smbfs, smbclient, firestarter and dhcp3-server
-Configure Samba (System-> Administration-> Shared folders): same workgroup as in the phone, add new user (the phone), passwd this new user. In my case the user was called "w890i" and the password given was the same.
-Once the phone is connected to the computer through USB (then select "phone mode"), a new connection appears in NetworkManager: usb0.The aim is to create a shared network that gives internet access to this device. Edit the IPv4 parameters of this new connection, set them to Manual and give an IP adress (192.168.0.1) and a subnet mask (255.255.255.0); the rest of the fields are left empty.Connect this network.
-Set firestarter to use dhcp3: sudo ln -sf /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server /etc/init.d/dhcpd
-Launch firestarter and follow the wizard. Set "allow internet shared connection", choose the device for the primary internet access, and then the device for the shared network (usb0). Then change the settings for firestarter: activate DHCP for local network, set IP to the one we gave before (192.168.0.1).
-Open dhcp3-server config file sudo gedit /etc/default/dhcp3-server And set INTERFACES="usb0"
-Set the policies of firestarter: in incoming connections, allow connections from the IP adress given to the phone (192.168.0.1). Then add rules for the ports that need to be open for this connection. I opened HTTP, HTTPS, SMB, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, IMAPS, DHCP for all the connections in the local network.
-Apply policies and start the firewall.
After all this, the phone can access the internet through the computer. Two problems appeared:
1. I couldn't get access to https sites, like webmails. The phone gave a "communication error". But then I tried with Opera instead of the browser built in the phone's firmware, and I could finally get to https sites.
2. I couldn't retrieve mail, neither POP nor IMAP nor IMAPS. I thought it was a firmware problem again, and I tried out several mobile phone email clients written in java, but none of them worked.
So this is at the moment the problem. If I connect from the phone to the internet directly through 3G, the email clients work for all my accounts. I don't think it's a firewall problem, because the ports are opened for this connection
I had recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 (64-bit) and I have trouble loading websites. I use a DSL (PPPoE) connection from NetworkManager to connect to the internet. Some sites like this forum site, stack overflow, etc. do not load. Firefox 4 says 'loading...' and then finally times out. I can ping these sites though.
I tried 'wget stackoverflow.com' and Lynx both timed out. wget sends out a request and waits a long time for response before timing out. These sites load perfectly well on my Fedora 14 (64-bit) & Windows XP installations and both these OSes have Firefox 4. From this I assumed that this is not a problem with Firefox (or any other browser for that matter) but it has got something to do with the network configuration.
I faced the same problem with Ubuntu 10.04 too. I use a Dell Inspiron N5010.
i hav the problem ...n i am having solution for it. ...i searched a lot on forum .but didnt find any proper solution for my problem. problem : " Cannot access some sites on Ubuntu 11.04 specially HTTPS sites. loading of certain sites was really slow" Solution : well. i found no one who could gave me solution that worked. so i studied some linux n here is solution ..ON terminal : sudo pppoeconfthen just follow instructions ...set to default every thing. it will configure all ur net settings on its own.restart ur pc. no need to dial anything. the net will auto dial itself without any problem..just make sure...u do it correctly ..read instructions..
I installed Drupal and there is only one site. It I access the website [url] where Drupal is installed I can easily see it functioning properly. But on internet it is not loading properly the colors etc are not visible properly.
I have just installed ubuntu 10.1 along side my windows xp. It installed nicely and boots up promptly. When I try to go to a web site, it takes forever to load. It can take up to 1 minute to load a page. Why is that. I thought that Linux was supposed to be faster. When I go back to windows, I don't have this problem.
I'm trying to run 9.10 from my flash drive, but it won't load properly. I end up with repeating messages of "end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0", and "Buffer I/O error on device fd0, logical block 0" for a bit, then it goes away, and then repeats "This is normally a bug some applications using the D-Bus library. process normally arguments to dbus_pending_call_set_notify() were incorrect, assertion "pending != NULL" failed in file dbus-pending call .c line 596." really fast, and keeps on repeating until I manually shut my laptop off.
Firefox starts to load, the window appears, but then hard drive keeps running for ever and ONLY thing that can be done is to click on Close Window, which will stop hard drive and get back to the desktop.
Suggestion posted to Delete ".mozilla/firefox" folder from my home directory worked initially,but the problem reappeared some time ago.
Other applications in Ubuntu seem to work OK.
How to correct this problem permanently - other than going to a different O.S.?
I dual boot XP and FC14 and have 2 routers. I can connect and ping one of these routers when I'm in FC and I have an IP address I just can't load any websites. When I connect to the other router (my main router) it works fine. When I boot into XP and connect to the problem router I can load pages fine. It's only when I'm on FC14 and connect to the problem router that I can't load pages even though I have an IP and can ping around.
I am new to this forum, so apologies if this question has been asked before or is placed in the wrong section. Hey there, I am running Fedora 14 on a 64-bit system (laptop). Upon logging in, (it doesn't seem to make a difference if it is an initial log-in or returning from logging out), the top and bottom GNOME panels occasionally 'miss' loading a few things, or loads them improperly. As an example, the Notification Area may be missing, and I will have to re-add it manually to the blank spot where it should have loaded. I have also had issues with the Workspace Switcher loading improperly and the System Monitor not loading at all.To note, this does not happen every time, but it occurs often enough to become an inconvenience. More often than not I will have to log out and back in again to fix an improperly loaded section of the panel(s).
I am running Centos 5.5 X86_64 and recently after updating my server, I am having problem loading gnome. When the server boots, and begins to bring up the login screen theme, I get an error that states "Could not recognize the image file format for /usr/share/gdm/themes/TreeFlower/background.png" I am able to login after clicking ok to this message, and using the "simplistic" login manager. But when the users desktop loads, there are several errors pertaining to "unsupported image format" and none of the icons are displaying correctly. They are just the default "curvy page" icon for an unassociated file type. Some of the icons do not even show up at all.
Another thing I noticed wierd is that when I try to view a png, nothing happens. When I try to open one using gimp, I get an "unsupported file type" error. When I tried to click on the "add/remove software" button I get prompted for root pass, but nothing happens. So, I tried launching pirut from CLI, and I received the following error:
[root@server ~]# pirut Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/sbin/pirut", line 41, in ? from pirut import *
I got a new laptop, this is the one: [URL] and decided that I wanted to go with Fedora instead of Ubuntu with this computer. The laptop runs win 7 64 bit so I'm trying to go with Fedora 64 but it will not boot. I first installed Fedora 12 64 bit from the DVD install and it would go to grub fine but when I boot the fedora os It just stops in the middle of the boot script. When it stops, the last 4 lines are:
I hadn't messed with it for a few weeks and yesterday I saw that 13 was out, so I downloaded and burnt the Fedora 13 64 bit CD. I popped it in, booted the computer and it did the same crap. It didn't stop at the same line but it was around a line with: ? kernel_init So I guess the kernel isn't loading properly or something. Do ya'll think I would be better off using the 32 bit?
Bought a lovely new Logitech MX3200 keyboard recently, didn't expect to be able to use all the media keys on it. I was surprised, then, when I discovered HIDPoint, some software for configuring the hotkeys on many Logitech keyboards, and more surprised when I saw that mine was on the supported devices list. Anyway, HIDPoint is only available for up to Ubuntu 9.10, and refuses to install properly in 10.04.Here is the output when I try to run the installer:
error while loading shared libraries: libpng.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory I can't find libpng.so.3 in Synaptic, so what should I do to get this program to install?
In the past week or so I've noticed some weird network behaviour. I find accessing some sites such as Amazon, Paypal, and Bigstockphoto really slow. Sometimes the page will not load at all. Other sites are fine. The problem sites are not a problem for others on my LAN at home. When I try to open the problem sites, I can see in Firestarter blocked connections coming from 2.1(8/9).xxx.xxx on various ports such as 36007. This only happens for the problem sites. I attached a typical output from firestarter.
This happens with Firfeox or Chrome. Using Ubuntu 10.10
I can telnet mx1.hotmail.com 25 from all other machines, apart from my newly installed ubuntu 9.10 laptop. I just installed exim4 and mailx and set in /etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf: dc_eximconfig_configtype='internet' But I can't send mail cause telnet mx1.hotmail.com 25 doesn't work. I can ping mx1.hotmail.com just fine.
I'm running a squid proxy in my ubuntu server, and I must have mess it up with the squid configuration. Users, cannot, access https pages. Can you tell me what to change in my squid.conf, so, to fix this?
Here is my squid.conf (witch is a friends conf, that i have change for my needs...)
This started yesterday. I haven't made any recent changes. I can't access any pages beginning with https. It's just my computer because my girlfriend's laptop doesn't have any issues. I'm using OpenDNS, but I have been for a long time and this is the first time this has ever happened. I'm not using a router, I connect straight to the modem, which I've already reset.
