Debian Configuration :: Open WiFi Captive Portal With Only Local Net (No Internet / WAN)?

Apr 11, 2016

I am trying to set up a wireless 'test' box to use on a private club (11,000 acres). The initial tests won't need anything fancy, it will just be checking the visibility of a hotspot from a high-point in the middle of the property. But if it proves to have good visibility, later tests will be (hopefully) promoted by the club and made aware to members. I would like to set up a captive portal to redirect them to a comments page where they can post a quick message if they were able to connect ....

Most of the examples I see online of captive portal are based on having an internet connection and/or a NAT scheme set up. I just need a hotspot and a single web-page for these promotional tests. If possible, I would like to trigger any devices capable to suggest or otherwise open a browser to go to the promotional landing page ...

Also, one more quick question, this is to eventually be an 'open' internet for this test - most of the wpa set-up examples show using a passkey. Is making an open wifi as simple as not including the passkey or is there something else I would need to be doing?

Debian Configuration :: WiFi Connects But Can't Ping - No Internet

Aug 27, 2015

I've been using Debian for about 6-7 months now. I've had a bit of a major networking problem for the past 4 months or so that I've been trying to fix - specifically, it started when I upgraded to Jessie. I can connect to wifi just fine, and sometimes I can even use the internet for brief periods of time (exceedingly rarely). Then... nothing. No network access, period. I can't ping any outside servers, I can't ping other computers on my network, and I can't even ping my router. Pages I try to load just stay "connecting" for all eternity, network printing fails, and so on.

So after four months of searching online (I've read through way more wireless documentation than I care to say), I finally gave up and admitted that maybe I screwed something up during upgrade to Jessie (as a matter of fact, I did, I had to do the upgrade in two increments [somehow] because my root partition was too tiny by mistake) and I did a clean install. Since I had /home on a separate partition, I was able to keep all my user files, but all settings regarding networking were wiped. So after installing firmware-iwlwifi so I can use my wireless card, I tried connecting to wireless! Success! Then I tried connecting to the internet... success! Briefly. The next morning I tried using the internet again, and it failed in exactly the same pattern as before.

I don't know much about what's going on here, but here's what I do have available:

I do have to use firmware-iwlwifi, which I installed by doing apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi. I don't think it's an issue with the wireless card itself (hardware-wise), the laptop dual-boots Windows 7 (that I never use anymore), and Windows 7 is able to connect to the internet just fine. Connecting directly to my router by ethernet cable works fine, I have perfect internet/network access then.

I can confirm that my laptop is receiving an IP address and that it is using ARP correctly to get the MAC address of my router (I confirmed this by doing the arp command, it has the MAC address correct, I checked from another computer with my router's config page) All other computers on my network work perfectly with my router. To confirm the router/its configuration isn't at fault, I did a full factory reset of the router, but to no avail.

Out of curiosity I tried installing Wireshark (using an ethernet cable to download it) to monitor what happens when I try to access a webpage. I'm no expert on networking, but I noticed something out place when I compare a capture from the affected computer to a capture from one operating normally - there are a lot of STP packets showing up. I did some checking around, it looks like STP is involved in bridging and more complex networking setups (involving switches, for example)... but it shouldn't be found on a home network, especially where there's no bridging whatsoever. These STP packets don't show up on packet captures done from any other computer. I've attached a packet capture from the affected computer here, since the forums won't let me attach a .pcapng file.

Here's the output from a few commands I ran during past troubleshooting sessions:

Code: Select allsudo ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr e0:db:55:b5:fe:06 
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

Ubuntu :: Internet Connection To An Open WiFi?

Dec 17, 2010

A few weeks ago I decided to install Ubuntu and try it. I was really exited about running Ubuntu in my computer. I was all fired up about the new software I installed. I found that I needed an internet connection to get additional software.
So my first task was to get an internet connection, I did a lot of research about this subject and I encounter small but a lot of difficulties.

I was trying with an internal modem in my computer and with a WiFi antenna with no success.

I don't want to give up, at least not yet, I hope that someone in this forum can lead me to get a successful internet connection.

The equipment I am using is as follows:

Computer Compaq
Internal modem
WiFi driver in tar.bz2 format.

This is the WiFi description: External Antenna USB WiFi Wireless IEEE 802.11G/B WLAN 54Mbps Network Adapter USB2.0 Wireless Lan USB Adapter for Laptop Noteook Desktop PC Suport Vista/Windows 7(32bit & 64bit)/Linux.

Debian Configuration :: Exim4 Configuration For Local Addresses

Jun 17, 2010

I am working on a Debian 2.6.26-19 Distribution with exim4 as MTA. After a system restart a problem occurred with delivering emails to local addresses. These local addresses use a 1and1 mailserver for email. The MX records for the local domain are set correctly but exim does not use a DNS lookup for these addresses because it identifies them as local addresses. I figured this out by executing the exim4 -d -bt command. The dns lookup part of the result looks like this (I replaced the actual address with placeholders):

[Code]....

The eventual result of the exim4 -d -bt command is: [user]@[domain.ext] is undeliverable: Unrouteable address How can I make sure, that exim4 makes a DNS lookup for the local addresses instead of skipping it? I know that I have to edit a exim4 configuration file, but I could not figure out which and how.

Debian Configuration :: Running A Local Ftp Server?

Nov 2, 2010

What would be necessary to run an ftp server (or a web server) on my local PC so that other people I know could access it and download stuff from it? The idea is to share photos, videos etc with friends/family where the files are a bit too big for email. (All 100% legal, own-content, no copyright issues, needless to say). Security isn't that vital, I'd just put files in the ftp directory, email the link and let them download the files, then remove them again. No passwords are required, and no uploads.

Obviously there's the problem that both computers have to be on at the same time, and I assume I'd have to change my computer's firewall settings and my router's settings to allow the traffic through, but my question is more basic than that - is it even possible? My internet connection is through a router, and as I understand it, my router has the IP address, not my computer. So I can connect through my router using my computer's IP address, but only my router knows my computer's IP address, and all the rest of the internet just sees my router and its IP address. Which means (I think) that I can't just send my IP address for my family to connect to, because that only gets them as far as my router, and the router would have no idea what to do with such requests. Am I right so far?

So is there any way for my family's computers to contact an FTP server or a web server running on my computer? Or does it require some kind of intermediary server to act as a traffic-forwarder? Is there such a thing? I'm assuming that setting up little private torrents would be fiddly and inefficient. Or would it be better/simpler to use one of the free filesharing services and put up with the (sometimes not too family-friendly) adverts associated with them?

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Connect To Anything On The Local Network?

Dec 24, 2010

Two nights ago I decided to switch from testing to unstable. Since then I am able to connect to the internet, but not to anything on my local network. I am unable to ping this computer from another one on the network. This computer is connected through wireless. I thought that something might have changed with iptables that was blockinghe localnetwork. I tried to "flush the iptables settings with "iptables -F". Since that didn't work I uninstalled iptables (which didn't work and I reinstalled iptables). In my browser I tried to connect to my router and that doesn't work either.I connect to this computer daily through ssh and connect to a NAS. Without ssh and my NAS I feel kinda lost

Debian Configuration :: Exim4 With Domain In Local Network

Sep 3, 2015

I'm trying to set up a *simple* MTA in my local network. The only thing it should be able to do is send system / daemon mails to admin@mylocaldomain. but at the moment I'm pretty much overwhelmed by everything i *should* know in order to set up this MTA

my infrastructure:

- servers:
* test01.mylocaldomain --> should send mails (with exim) to admin@mylocaldomain
* dns01.mylocaldomain --> dns-server
* mail.mylocaldomain --> mail-server (postfix / iredmail package)

I configured exim to be in "internet"-mode. now i have a variety of errors I can choose from (and a variety of solutions that i don't like ).. my test is always an email from test01.mylocaldomain:

echo "Hello World" | mail -s Testmail admin@mylocaldomain

- after running the config, i get the error: admin@mylocaldomain: all relevant MX records point to non-existent hosts --> google says, edit and udpate update-exim4.conf.conf --> dc_relay_domains='mylocaldomain' --> but this exim installation should not be a relay at all. it should only be able to SEND (to this domain), not deliver it. or do i get something wrong?

- after i added dc_relay_domains='mylocaldomain', i get --> SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<admin@mylocaldomain>: host mail.mylocaldomain [192.168.x.x]: 550 5.1.1 <root@mylocaldomain>: Sender address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table --> but i don't want to create an account on the mailserver for the SENDER...

- ...so i thought, i'd config exim with the domain "test01.mylocaldomain" (including the server name), so that the sender is clearly from another domain than the mail server handles (e.g. user@test01.mylocaldomain).. but then i get this --> SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<admin@mylocaldomain>: host mail.mylocaldomain [192.168.x.x]: 450 4.1.8 <root@test01.mylocaldomain>: Sender address rejected: Domain not found

I really just wanna send mails in my local network.

Debian Configuration :: Run A Command At Bootup Earlier Than Rc.local?

what would be the proper place for this? if i put it in rc.local it will be executed very late, i'd rather have it sooner. if add a new script to init.d, then run update-rc.d, i would have to adhere to the start|stop|reload structure of these scripts, right? or do i go a totally different way about this?

Debian Configuration :: Nautilus Can't Browse Local Network

Apr 21, 2010

I have a new Debian 5.04/ppc install on a G5 tower and it's not able to browse the local network. The clean install could see the network, then I installed the Samba server, and it hasn't worked since. Samba server never really worked, and I'm guessing I messed something up. I've reinstalled network-manager, and removed / reinstalled samba.

I have a small home network (6 machines) running wired and/or wireless, pc/mac and linux.This machine can PING other machines by name and IP address.This machine can PING itself by name and IP address
Other machines can PING this machine by IP address only, not by name.Nautilus network browser only shows the "Windows Network" icon, which, when clicked, shows an empty window.I've got networking up fine on all my other machines but this one is stumping me.

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Resolve Local Network Names Only

Jul 25, 2010

I have three Debian systems running, along with several XP laptops, PS3 and two DirecTV systems. I use two of the three Debian systems as media servers, and the third is an older system mostly for playing around with. My home network is running fine with the following nuisance. The two newer Debian (Lenny) systems are <barney> and <mitzi>, the older is named <oscar>, running Debian Sarge 3.1. From either locally or remote login to <barney> and <mitzi> I can ssh into either of the other two systems, however when logged into <oscar> I cannot ssh by name to either of the other systems. e.g. ssh: mitzi: Temporary failure in name resolution..However, from <oscar> I can ping outside my network (e.g. ping www.google.com) with no problems.I can also ssh to the other systems via IP address, just not by name.

I've compared the /etc/ssh/ssh_config, /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/ssh/sshd_config and other files between the two systems and not seeing anything peculiar. arp, route, etc., don't show different behavior between the systems either.

Debian :: Connected To WiFi But Cannot Open Any Pages

I have installed network controller driver(iwlwifi) in debian jessie and connected to wifi, but I could not connect to any web sites. I installed network-tools and input "iwconfig" it did show a wlan0 there.

Then I opened resolv.conf ,but there were 2 resolv.conf in my /etc,one contains "search lan nameserver 192.168.199.1",one contains "nameserver 8.8.8.8 nameserver 8.8.4.4".

I changed the content of the first one to 8.8.8.8 and restart networking,but I still could not open pages with wireless network.

And I open the first one again,and it changed back to 192.168.199.1,and an extra line "domain lan"above the line"search lan".

Debian Configuration :: OpenVPN And IPTables - No Local Hostnames Accessible

Feb 7, 2016

I managed to set up an openvpn server, ip-forwarding and a nat iptable rule for that.

Almost everything works as expected, but my problem is:

Smartphone -> VPN -> Internet ==> works (by ip and hostname)
Smartphone -> VPN -> machine in my local network by IP ==> works
Smartphone -> VPN -> machine in my local network by its hostname => DOES NOT WORK
Machine w/ VPN server -> ping to machine in local network by ip or hostname => works

So, i wonder why i cant access a local machine through the vpn by its hostname. I guess I'm missing a forwarding rule??

Debian Configuration :: IPTables - Local Host Cannot Get Returning Traffic

Sep 20, 2010

I have a strange iptables issues. I have just built a new Debian install and starting adding some real basic rules (see below) the problem seems to be that the localhost itself can't get any returning traffic. That is, it seems to be allowed outgoing traffic but not the connected, returning traffic. Ordinarily allowing Established Connections would resolve this, see the rule below, but it hasn't. Why this doesn't work. Removing the last DROP in the INPUT chains obviously makes the traffic work!

iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -j ACCEPT -p tcp --dport 22
