CentOS 5 Networking :: Internet Access Slow In CentOS 5.3?
Sep 9, 2009
I have an MSI K9A2 Platinum mobo, which has a 10/100/1000 Fast Ethernet Realtek 8111B built-in, a D-Link DIR-655 Router and a DSL modem. Compared to Windows Visya and other Linux distros ( Fedora 11, Suse 11.1, Mandriva 2009.1 ) access to the internet is much slower. It seems there is a noticeable delay when running CentOS 5.3. before internet access kicks in each time I am surfing the web or updating my system.
Is there any way I can speed things up, or determine why CentOS 5.3 seems much slower ?
I have CentOS5.5, it has full access to internet until I did something to it I couldn't figure out. This is not a cable issue since I could ping and ssh to other machines within my lan. Apache is also running fine, which is probably irrelevant. When I type traceroute cnn, it simply hangs, later saying [URL]: Temporary failure in name resolution Cannot handle "host" cmdline arg '[URL]' on position 1 (argc 1) This is a desktop version of CentOS5.5, when i do Administration - Network, it says eth0 is active and Primary and Secondary DNS are set correctly to my comcast DNS server at 68.94.15x.1
I just downloaded and installed the latest Cent OS 5. I disabled SE linux, turned off the firewall, and selected the Server package options when installing. I plan on using this as a router/firewall between my internal network and the internet, as well as web server, etc. The first thing I did was to configure the two NICs, internal one with 192.168.7.1 address and the other with an address from my ISP (I have a static address, but I also tried to let the DSL router assign an address via DHCP). Everything looked fine, I checked /etc/resolv.conf and my routes. I was able to ping the DSL router from the server, but I was not able to do a ping or lookup on anything outside my network. I tried host, dig, nslookup, etc, no luck. Obviously then, I was not able to browse the net with firefox.
I've installed centos 5 on an old computer with success and it works great.I can access the web server hosted on the centos server from any computer on the wireless and wired local network. I can also use ssh (putty) and nx client from any computer on the local network (wired and wireless) to access the centos server.On the wireless router I've configured a port forwarding to the wireless network interface on the centos server. I can access the centos server from the outside (internet) through this port forwarding both through http and ssh or nx client.MY problem is that I can't access the centos server from the internet through the wired network interface. Any attempt to view a web page or login with ssh or the nx client will timeout.
I'm running a CentOS 5.2 on dom0 and two CentOS 5.2 on domU.The domU use virbr0.I install domU via GUI interface and did not change anything ... the domUcan ping and connect to dom0 but can't access to Internet !!I search google and find someone mentioned that I need to enable IP forwardin dom0 ... I did but my domU still can't access to Internet.What else I need to do ?The routing table of dom0 is:
# route -n Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
I have a Centos5.4 64bit laptop, having an eth0 and a wlan0. I connect this wired eth0 to a wall socket to access Internet via DHCP (eg the assigned address is like 192.168.192.xx). I do not have access to the ADSL router. How can I turn this laptop into a Wifi access point to allow, say my Ipad or any wireless-only client, to access the Internet thru this laptop ?
That is, communication between iPad to laptop is wifi(ad-hoc connection ??), laptop to the ADSL router is wired LAN. The laptop need to have some bridging build in ? If you can refer me some concepts, then I can follow up from there.
I installed CentOS. NetworkManager successfully installed and launched. I can ping any IP from terminal but I can't open any site in browser except 127.0.0.1 I can't open IP of the modem 192.168.1.1 in browser also.
is it possible to use yum in any way when a computer is not connected to the internet(but when full install media is available; for example the dvd)? Or should I resolve all dependencies manually using rpm?
I am using a CentOS 5.4 server for Snort (it's actually using the easyIDS config). I'm trying to modify some things, and I've noticed that I can't seem to download any files. WGET, FTP, etc... all just time out. It's not a network firewall issue, as I've been monitoring the logs and see no blocked traffic, and other machines on the subnet can get outside with no problems. I checked the Cent firewall using the setup command, and it says it is disabled as well. I'm very new to linux, so I'm wondering how I can troubleshoot this? The wget and ftp errors just say the connection timed out, but I'm not sure why.
i am unable to access internet in linux editions (redhat 5.4 & centos 5.5) recently i have taken a reliance internet connection but the think is i didn't get any ipaddress from reliance, but i accessing internet in window 7 and i have triple boot. pls any one give the solution.
We have Apache installed on CentOS 5.3 in our laboratory. Indeed the server is running fine for almost two years since it is actually the first CentOS 5 that was released just regularly updated. Now, most of our applications are custom made PHP applications and until now we somehow managed to avoid using PHP to fetch files that are on the internet itself. But now we are desperate because we need to allow PHP to fetch files through Apache but it seems as if Apache is not allowed to make a connection to the outer world. Additionally we use a proxy server to connect to the outer world so right at the beginning http_proxy is used to set that environmental variable. And for the root user it all works fine after that but it seems as if the apache user is not allowed to access the internet. Just to make a remark our web server can be accessed from the outer world so its a one way street for now.
i want to buy a pci weasel, people told me i will have access to the server over internet with this board.Does anyone have any experience with this kind of card?How can i have access to server over internet to the bios,etc.
I am getting an access denied when trying to log in via SSH to my home server with putty(windows) over the internet. I can use any user including root and get the same result. If I use my Android phone with the ssh terminal command I am able to successfully log in and use the server.
I'm currently working on a project in a secure environment with no internet access and I need to install Ettercap and Wireshark on the machines. I thought this would be a simple task of loading Wireshark onto a USB but this did not work and replied with error messages such as: ' Invalid config x86_64-unknown-linux'
what does the error message mean and do I need internet access to install the apps?
I am stepping into Linux world ...and I have chosen CentOS. I have installed CentOS 5.5 on a dedicated IBM server successfully. My server has two network cards. I have configured eth0 for lease line internet connection with a live IP (113.xxx.xxx.xxx) and eth1 for local LAN with a static IP (192.168.0.1).
Now, 1. DHCP is working fine and I can access the server from my Windows XP clients. 2. I can access the server with SSH client PuTTY from home ( with the live IP ) and from the local LAN (with static IP 192.168.0.1) 3. I can access my shared server directory 'public' from my XP clients 4. Internet is working on sever and I have updated the server with yum update.
But, I cannot access internet from my XP clients machines.
I read "The Definitive Guide to CentOS" and tweaked the config files in different ways but it did not help. now after two sleepless nights I am here as my last hope.
I admit, I am not aware of every linux terms and commands, but I am getting into it. code...
Anyone know why my fresh installation of centOS server is so slow? Seems like it takes over a minute to execute a command, im not doing anything complicated either. Secondly, how come at times when I type reboot the machine starts to beep, one long loud annoying beep.
I am having a problem with slow data transfers with both Samba and scp. I have gigabit NIC's on both all three machines that I am transferring to and from, connected to a gigabit switch. My data transfers under both smb and scp average around 21 MBit/s, (I am using nload to monitor transfer speeds).The machines are configured as follows,1) desktop
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 6 gig Corsair memory Realtek RTL8168C(P) gigabit NIC (on board)
I've just installed my first OpenLdap + TLS + Samba + Webmin box.Everything seems to work but when i try to open the Ldap User and group module from Webmin, it takes about 3 minutes but it works.When i use $ getent passwd or$ getent group.to see if everything works okay, it also takes ages but does not show my ldap users...Here's my spec

When running Firefox, page loading is very slow (e.g. taking nearly a minute for a ..... video to start; even gmail is slow). This is in contrast with my performance when using, e.g. linuxdcpp (file sharing), where I get speeds over 300kbps. Here is some relevant information:
I ran into this today accidentally turned on networkmanager and it took it upon itself to rewrite some things and proceeded to make any DNS lookups on my server Especially those reverse DNS for SSH and SFTP take so long they would just time out instead of completing.. Disabling networkmanager did not undo the damage either. Short fix, Erase your resolv.conf file and add 2 lines to it as so, your nameservers!
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx nameserver yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy save, and run the following commands service network restart service httpd restart service sshd restart
Mine had a search line added by networkmanager and some others, when i reverted it back to as above, almost instantly after restarting the services the systems lookups were once again, lightning fast. DNS lookups were taking upwards of 20 seconds for unknown reasons after this happenned
New CentOS 5.4 system working fine. Sys admins came in and copied the hosts file from one of the servers down to my desktop and ever sincethen machine has been slow (progs take 10-20seconds to load). RunningGnome. Luckily I saved the old hosts file and copied it back and all is now well. But I'd like to understand why, particularly as I will need to change myhostname in the future.
As configured: /etc/hosts (yes my hostname is "dummyName" that I will need to change later) 127.0.0.1 dummyName localhost.localdomain localhost
This is my first post, I hope I'm the the right place. I installed mysql mysql-server php-mysql perl-DBD-mysql libdbi-dbd-mysql via "yum install -y" on a server running CentOS 5.3 X86_64 The install completes successful with no errors, but once I start mysqld via "chkconfig --level 35 mysqld on" ; "service mysqld start" There are no errors in /var/log/mysqld.log netstat shows mysqld listening on 3306 and localhost is in /etc/hosts
Is there any way to setup the Centos Directory Server without an internet connection?? i tried using the command: yum install centos-ds
but this just tries to connect to the internet to to download the packages. Is there a site where i can find the package so that i can copy it to my server and install it or is there some other way to do this?
