Debian Configuration :: Setting Up / Adding To Network
Jun 22, 2011
I just installed Debian 6 squeeze on a P3, 632 MB RAM, 20 GB HD, and am trying to get it on-line. Ran lspci and lsusb on it (advice from another forum). Got the following results:
Exactly what I am trying to do: Existing network is as follows: Comcast internet to cable modem to Belkin N Wireless Router Model F5D 8236-4 v3. That router is wired to one desktop (running Windows XP)and has 4 wifi notebooks (two running Windows 7 and two running Mint 9 Isadora) and two Wii consoles running off of it. I am seeking to add another desktop to the network in another room without having to drill some holes and run about 40 feet of cable. Seems like it shouldn't take much to get the two routers to "talk" to each other so I can do this. The router I am trying to hook to it is either a Belkin F5D 9230-4 wireless router or a NetGear N150 WNR1000 v2 Wireless router.
I have two ethernet NIC's on my debian server. One built-in Realtek [eth0] (attached to internet), and a PCI Nvidia ethernet card [eth1] (attached to my Win7 netbook). I used this guide to setup the bridge: url. It worked when I was behind a router. But when I moved the computer in front of the router, to direct connect to the internet, the internet stopped functioning on any device that I plug into my Nvidia NIC. The name of my bridge is 'br0'. Does anyone know how to fix it, so I can route the internet to my second NIC?
My Win7 netbook displays this at an 'ipconfig' command: Windows IP Configuration
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo br0 iface lo inet loopback # Set up interfaces manually, avoiding conflicts with, e.g., network manager iface eth0 inet manual iface eth1 inet manual # Bridge setup iface br0 inet dhcp bridge_ports eth0 eth1
I am putting together a server and computer lab at my school for Standardized testing, and am planning on using debian for it. But first, i must prove to the school board that this is a possible and viable option, so right now it is one pc with 1 gig ram (Going to be the server for this experiment), and two others with around 512 mb ram.the problem with all this is, the computers in the lab cannot have hard drives, as there is some sort of licencing issue. So I need to be able to have these two testing computers boot from the server's hard drive.
I have Debian 8.2 with KDE 4.14 and everything runs perfect, except for the internet connection. This problem happens randomly when I turn on my machine. Sometimes when the desktop loads, the connection is already settled.
But sometimes when the desktop loads, the wifi icon is still loading and keeps stuck at "setting network address". Since this problem happens randomly I really don't know what is happening here. My wifi chip is this:
how to get clients connecting to an office printer. during a migration from windows server to debian/samba.
5 windows XP machines one Windows Server 2003 machine, PDC of the old domain One debian Samba PDC (of TEST domain)/print server (with CUPS installeD) running in a virtual machine hosted by the windows server One Toshiba eStudio 3511 printer
Using the CUPS control panel, I've been able to autodetect and add the printer, and it appears as an available share in SWAT for samba. However, the driver isn't perfect. CUPS could only supply drivers for the 3510c, not the 3511.
However, clients on the TEST domain are unable to access it. Doing so gives an error about a local policy preventing a connection to the print queue. I've tried googling this error and the fix that comes up in every result about changing a point and print policy setting, does not work.
however, I've been able to work around the issue. by first logging in as local administrator, navigating to the domain server, then inputting the domain root account credentials at the prompt. That allows me to attempt to connect to printers, but with a different error
"The server for the printer does not have the correct driver installed...."
I very strongly suspect that the 3510 driver actually will work, but it's just not being shared properly. The printer driver share folder is /var/lib/samba/printers, and that directory contains only a few empty subfolders. CUPS did not place the driver there as I would expect, and that is where clients are looking for it.
The thing is, I have no idea where CUPS DID put the driver.
On the old domain, the printer uses drivers for es4511, and looking on the toshiba site, this seems to be what they provide. The Toshiba Site provides a huge variety of drivers, including several windows ones, a universal driver, and a CUPS PPD. Cups asks for an optional PPD during install and I tried supplying that. It said installed successfully, but didn't change anything.
I've tried pasting the windows drivers into /var/lib/samba/printers/W32X86 too, and likewise with other drivers from toshiba's site. but this doesn't change anything either, so I'm at a bit of a loss.
how to install/setup drivers on a samba PDC, for windows machines?
Also relevant, my smb.conf: anyone see any possible causes of problems? # Samba config file created using SWAT # from UNKNOWN () # Date: 2010/08/19 13:03:07
I have added a 10 Mbps network card to my SGI O2 MIPS workstation running Debian Lenny running the 26-2 kernel. The workstation already has an onboard NIC which is working fine.(eth0).
lspci -v shows ths card as:-00:03.0 Ethernet controller: Compex ReadyLink 2000 (rev 0a) Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 18 I/O ports at 1800 [disabled] [size=32] Upon googling I found out that this card is an NE2000 clone. I downloaded the latest 2.6.36 kernel sources and did the following:-
1. Make Menuconfig 2. Loaded an alternate kernel config file (my working kernel config file) 3. In DeviceDrivers->Network device support->Ethernet (10 or 100 Mbit)
I selected ASIX AX88796 as the help associated with this showed it as an NE 2000 clone. configured it to be a module and did make, make_modules and make_install. Edited /etc/Modules to load ax88796 and added an alias eth1 ax88796 to this file. copied the new kernel to the /boot and did a reboot, the machine booted up fine and udev -r showed the 2.6.36 kernel and lsmod showed ax88796 loaded. But, Iam not able to bring up eth1 using:-
ifup eth1 The error messages given are:- SIOCSIFADDR: No such device eth1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device
firewall server which runs on Debian and then theres windows 2003fileserver. On this machine runs as well SQL server. Letssay it listens to port 1000. From other windows machines I want to connect to this Sql server which holds library database for users. But the connection cant be made. Possible error that firewall Debian machine want let the packets through.So how to I add a rule into iptabels (what file to open and edit?) So that all localconnections to the server lets say which is 192.168.0.2 and the firefall machine is 192.168.0.1 go through! So the connections allowed would be 192.168.0.3-255. How is it safe to do and how will it look like? Sql server uses TCP/IP connection. Heres what I found from web, I think this may be the right rule, but how i modify it correctly.iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -s 0/0 --sport 1000 -d 192.168.0.2 --dport .........? -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
After adding the backports from 8/Jessie to a 7/Wheezy sources.list and running aptitude update, I get these odd error messages. What is going on?

I am currently running a Debian 4.0 (etch) PC and I can't upgrade to a newer distribution for legacy software reasons.
It is currently running on Kernel 2.6.18-4-686 and I would like to upgrade it to Kernel 2.6.22-3-686 (whilst keeping my current Debian 4.0 Etch installation). Does anyone know how this could be possible?
Prefereably I would like to instal Kernel 2.6.22-3-686 along side my current Kernel 2.6.18-4-686 with the option to specify which kernel to use when booting.
I'm trying to setup a PXE server with Jessie. I've got the basic setup working by following the steps at [URL] .... That part was really easy. I would like to make the process as automated as possible and then add Win7/10 to the system as well.
The first hurdle I've come across is the fact that netboot downloads everything off the repositories. This has the potential to use up a lot of bandwidth and I would like to avoid this if possible. The first idea I came across was to create a local mirror, this way not only will I be installing everything off the LAN but I'll also be getting all the updates for my systems off the LAN too. I wasn't too keen on this. The other option that I read about was to use the debian ISOs instead.
What I have tried is to copy the Debian ISO to /var/www/html/debian
Then, when my boot via the pxe, i set the option to manually select a repository and then i type in the IP address for my webserver for the address and type in /debian for the mirror directory.
However it breaks at this point. I get a message saying "Downloading a file failed"
I would prefer the as much of the install to come from the ISO as possible to keep bandwidth usage to a minimum.
For Win10, I read that I have to use an AIK to build the Winpe and then boot that. Then I can load the Windows10 ISO via nfs through Winpe.

I'm building a Debian based router, I want to add to this router a mail service function. I don't want mail to be sent outside of the network, what I want is the ability for services to send mail to the Debian server and for me to then pick them up from this server via pop3 into my normal mail application. Given I'm not looking for mail to be sent outside of the network and its strictly for services to log notifications via. What of the various mail applications should I setup? i.e. just looking for SMTP + POP3 internally.
Is there an easy way to add SATA drives to an existing system and have them m automatically at boot?So far I've been able to create a partition and format but they never mount at boot.What do I have to put in fstab so it will work?Also, since RAID doesn't work in Debian, is it possible to make two drives mount at the same folder
I would like to run a mailing daemon on my system that would receive incoming mail and forwards it to my Gmail account. I have no experience in mail services and forwarding mail at all. where to start reading and/or look for clues?

I'm trying to set up a small web server with php and sqlite support. I installed lighttpd, php5, php-sqlite3 and php5-sqlite3. Then, I enabled sqlite and pdo extensions in php.ini: extension=pdo.so extension=sqlite.so extension=pdo_sqlite.so
However, when I try to open a SQLite3 database from php: $database = new SQLiteDatabase($myDB, 666, $error); I get the following exception: SQLiteDatabase::__construct() [sqlitedatabase.--construct]: file is encrypted or is not a database
Some readings in the net make me think that my php settings are not compatible with SQLite3 databases. Is anyone successfully working with SQLite3 databases from PHP5 under Debian? Have you any recommendations? Should I rebuild php maybe?
I have 2 windows pc's in my home and an office computer that have my files strewn about. I wanted to have them all in one central location that keeps a backup copy, so i used an old machine to start building a file server. I installed debian 5.0 on the machine, command line interface only. I have gotten ssh working so that i can do all my work on the box from one of my windows pc's by logging in with putty.my current problem is how to easily use the box hard drive for storing my files in an easily accessible way. i'm still working on getting samba to work so that i could map the /home directory to a drive letter on my two home pc's, but i'd also like to access files from my work pc. Before i do that, though, i wanted to know if this is safe and secure to map a drive on a remote machine through the internet? Are there any other security concerns I need to be addressing by having this file server set up?
I am trying to figure out what needs to be done to automatically set read/write permissions for everyone for my proprietary USB device on system boot. I have created a udev rules file which changes the permissions for the device when it is connected, but it does not change the permissions when the system is booted with the device already connected. The file looks like this:
Would like to know the best way (or the pros and cons of different ways) to set up Alsa. I did a search for information on how to setup alsa on my system. I found a lot of out-of-date information even on the alsa wiki. What I did finally locate was two different methods for setup, both seemed somewhat up-to-date. One method at the alsa wiki said to put part of the information in the modprobe directory in a conf file and set up certain aliases. Earlier suggestions for putting information in modprobe.conf or conf.modprobe appear to be outdated and a directory with separate files for each device and a conf extension to the files is currently used. The second method from a thread on the Debian forum said to use alsactl init, set sound levels the way you want and then use alsactl save and restore functionality. Older methods using alsaconf instead of alsactl init appear to be outdated as well. Not sure where to put the call to alsactl restore though. Didn't notice that in the documentation.In case it matters, I'm running Debian Stable and have a built-in sound card on the motherboard with AC97 compatibility. It's a Realtek ALC882.
Is there a preferred or better method for setting up alsa? Is there a good pointer to instructions that are not out-of-date somewhere? Would be very interested to hear how others set sound up on their machines. What do others recommend as best steps to do this?
New to linux in general and am having issues on setting up a Raid 1 array for two disks on an HP Proliant Microserver which I am looking to be accessible from my windows PC. I have installed the latest version of debian succesfully on a 250GB disk that came with the server. I have added 2 2TB disks which I would like to have in a RAID 1 array and to have visible from windows to store music/videos etc on. I have managed to partition the two disks to FAT32 (which I think is best) and have managed to configure the array so that it shows as active when I use cat /proc/mdstat. I have been following the steps in this article [URl]... squeeze-p2 and trying to adapt it to my situation.
I am stuck on the step to create the file systems using the mkfs command. I try mkfs.vfat /dev/md0 and it comes up with the error mkfs.vfat: command not found. I have tried mkfs -t vfat /dev/md0 and it give the error "mkfs.vfat: No such file or directory" So my question is how can I continue with the process of setting up the array? Or maybe I should be asking is it possible to set up an array with FAT32 formatted disks?
Setting up my Squeeze test box, I can't seem to get APache2 to find index.html. It keeps coming up with the initial "It works!" page.
On my Squeeze server, the /etc/apache2/httpd.conf file contains this line: DocumentRoot /home/www_local and that box serves the website perfectly.
On the test box, I created the /home/www_local directory and put an index.html file in it, then populated /etc/apache2/httpd.conf with exactly the same DocumentRoot line and restarted Apache. Still the same result -- Apache isn't finding my index.html file. I have grep'ed all the files in /etc/apache2 and /etc/apache2/conf.d looking for 'DocumentRoot' and it's not in any of them.
I'm intending to replace my current router (486DX2 w/16MB running FREESCO which has been faithfully working 24/7 for well over a decade) with a debian box with a bit more grunt and newer features. I'm currently setting up my iptables ruleset and am after a bit of advice re the FORWARD policy. A few example rulesets I have found set the default policy to DROP and the have two lines for each port forward, one to allow the traffic and one to direct the incoming packets to the correct machine.
I'm thinking of setting the default policy to ACCEPT to cut down on typing as my default INPUT policy is DROP and unless there is a valid FORWARD rule for a particular port, the packets aren't going anywhere anyway. Or have I misunderstood something. My googling returned heaps of example scripts & not much intelligent commentary. Alternatively, what do you all use to configure & maintain your debian gateways; hand rolled iptables rules, or any toolset recommendations?
I have installed the Nvidia drivers on my desktop using [URL] according to the Debian way. Everything seems to be fine except the resolution. The best it will let me choose is something like 600x480. I have searched and most of what is suggested around the web is to change xorg.conf. I have tried this using different setting suggested but nothing is working. I did not have a xorg.conf file so I created one with the setting suggested on the Debian wiki.
Since I got the liquorix kernel installed on my machine I got an error of setting kernel variable error. net.ipv6.bindv6only at boot time, since it wasnt a big deal I never looked further into it, but now that I had some spare time and I didnt want to see any errors on my machine I found a solution for it, with a little googling all we need to do is read the /usr/share/doc/procps/README.Debian and bingo no more error i hope this help anyone else with the same problem. I did the 3rd suggestion on that file to load the module in /etc/modules cheers.
I have a home Debian server running, and i would like to set it up as a gateway. I have 2 networkcards in it. So internet comes from the modem and on the other card i want to setup a dhcp server and it has to share the internet. But i want it also to connect to a vpn and share the internet of the vpn.. Is that possible?
Despite having the Gnome Power Manager set to put the display to seep after 30 minutes, it always happens after 5 minutes. The display will go blank but still lit, and then it powers off after the 30 minutes. Surely, if I set it to 30 minutes, the display should power off then, and not just blank after 5? I have no screensaver packages installed so it's nothing to do with that.
I am still a noob with linux and debian in particular. I do some android development so through that I have learned a little bit about linux but only the basic command prompt commands and the basics of how linux works and such.Anyways, I was looking around on the forum and on other forums and I couldn't find any helpful information about how to set up wireless connections (such as wifi) on debian. When I installed debian on my computer it asked me for the ipw2200 files and I didn't have them at the time but now I have the latest framework files for that, I don't really know how to install them and after I install them I don't know how to turn on my wireless connections from there.
I am really sorry if someone already made a post on this subject and I am just too clutzy to find it, if that's the case please just post the link to that thread for me cause I'm dumb as crap.So basically the main problem I am trying to fix right now is that I cannot get my internet to work on my old dell inspiron 6000 laptop which I am trying to get to run debian.
I was playing with my debian server when something went totally wrong while i was editing something on my network interface,i removed those crap that i wrote and left the network interface configuration as it was
Like for example after re-editing my network interface,it was like :
As i did a network restart, i get this error saying :
There is already a pid file /var/run/dhclient.eth0.pid with pid 2802 killed old client process, removed PID file.
What is this error and how can i fix it,because every time im re booting my server i lost my network config.
