Fedora Installation :: Network Connections Is Inactive - Cannot Set Internet Connections
May 30, 2011
I recently installed Fedora 15 now, and during installation I set the internet connection manually, then did update and after reboot, the internet connection settings have been removed. Now I can not set because the network connection to the Internet Connection is inactive. I mention that before the update was functional internet connection.
have a problem with my network-manager in ubuntu 10.10.when I dial one of my vpn connections, my other vpn connections be disabled and I can't use them!I tried to restart network-manager and gnome-panel, but it does't seem to solve this problem.
I had this problem today while I was logged on my server many a times there was power interruption and my connection would break.Each time a new connection was formed I could see the old ones still active is there a way I could close those connections which are still open when I had logged in.I tried restarting ssh daemon but that did not helped.I use Ubuntu 10.04
i have just installed f12, recently i was facing a problem of a package named rp-pppoe missing,, but then i installed it by using rpm command,..but now still im not able connect to internet.. as im using adsl connection with modem connected via RJ45,,. im trying to create new xdsl connection by manually putting IP,subnetmask,gateway, dns1,dns2... but still the connection always remian inactive...and i couldn't find any way to activate it...
I first tried an upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 and lost Internet Access, so i re-loaded 11.4 from scratch on clean partitions.
I am connected to my wireless WPA2/PSK connection, have an IP, am able to see the network.
I turned off and disabled the SUSE firewall.
I tried setting Firefox proxy settings to auto and to none, i dont use proxy.
I am currently posting this through an SSH connection to my 11.1 server from the new install of 11.4 on a Dell latitude D600 laptop (not using the on-board Broadcomm that is an issue for a later date).
I have troubels with internet, on different Linux x64 systems on my laptop(Lenovo ThinkPad sl510), but if I load WindowsPE all is OK ( what coud it be? where to search?There is an hardwere firewall/nat/gateway in my local network, it allows only connections to dst ports tcp 80 (http), udp 53 (dns) and no frags, no icmp, deny in and etc. But Windows Internet (the same Firefox) works fine , and under Linux sites doesn't loding full or "connetion timed out"...But if I have can start downloading any file it would be downloaded full (I have downloaded DVD iso of SuSe)Dns throu nslookup responce not evry time...Decreasing of MTU to 1372 didn't help (( Deactivating ip v6 also....What coud it be? What is different betwin Windows and Linux in DNS clients is any alternative dns client in SuSe? Is the trouble only in DNS?
I have a A7V8X-X motherboard with VT6102 [Rhine-II] on board network device. Internet connections work fine for long time on openSuse 10.3, 11.1 11.2 and 11.3. But since a few weeks ago, internet connections began to fail: several times when I want to open any Internet site with Firefox, it answers:
I want to share my WiFi internet connection over LAN, so I'm trying to set up IP forwarding. An old tutorial tells me to go to Network Settings in YaST to do this, but that applet says that NetworkManager is now handling all of that stuff.How do I enable IP forwarding while NetworkManager handles my internet connections?
Is it fair to say that connLimit and hashlimit are very similiar on Linux i.e. while hashlimit caters to limits for groups of ports, they both set the connection rate limit per host? How in IPTables, do I configure a policy that limits connections on a port that encapsulates the total sum of all connections from all hosts? i.e. I do not want to allow more than 6000conn/minute for port range that is the sum of all connecting hosts?
I have a question, regarding the use of two internet connection on the same server. So, the thing is like this: The server will have 3 network adapters: connected to a DSL modem (on this adapter I have one of the internet connections, a PPPoE connection. It's only purpose is to share the internet connection to all LAN users using SNAT.
eth1 ----> the other internet connection, a much more expensive one actually, used for hosting a website, a domain name server, and a qmail server. eth2 ----> LAN connection So what I want is to make eth1 the "default gateway" (for outgoing mail, DNS requests, etc) and, as I said, use the ppp0 connection on eth0 only for internet sharing in LAN.
My question is (since I'l configure this server in about one week), does anybody have any suggestions regarding how could I accomplish this? I mean, I'm affraid that ppp0 will also try to use the default gateway from the other internet connection and vice-versa. Now, I know I can use the ip route/ip rule commands, but for many reasons I'd like to keep it simple and not use them.
When setting up my server I noticed that I could control the amount of connections; the maximum seems to be 256. My server is currently windows 2003 server which is unlimited connections - before I change the server to F10 I need to be able to have unlimited connections (I often go over 256 connections, I have 25 web sites hosted). How do I do this on F10 or is there a better distro for web servers that have thousands of Internet connections at the one time?
I have two internet connections. One is wired ADSL Broadband & another is USB EVDO modem. I can use only one source at a time. That means the traffic will pass through either ADSL or EVDO. Other connection just sits idle. I want to use both the connections together so that I will have increased bandwidth. Is there a way to do that?
My computer has one NIC card. Both ADSL & EVDO use dynamic IPs.
I've been looking through the Debian wiki, searching past topics in the forum, and generally googling, but all to no avail. I'm unable to connect to the internet through any wireless connections, nor through an ethernet cable. I installed the latest weekly image of Debian squeeze. After installation, I found myself on the command line. I installed gnome with
apt-get install gnome-desktop-environment I also tried installing gnome-applets, gnome-netstatus-applet, and gnome-nettool, but I guess they were already installed. When I open System > Administration > Network in Gnome, there's no connections tab in the Network Settings application.
Here's what I think is the relevant portion of lspci -v
07:00.0 Ethernet Controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01) Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 137a Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ23 Memory at c2000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K] Capabilities:  Power Management version 2
I'm one of those people migrating from Ubuntu and in Ubuntu I had to add a 'rfkill -unblock all' command to my rc.local file for this laptop. Not sure if that's relevant, but thought more info couldn't hurt.
once I updated , there will be no connections to Internet in GUI , while it's available in TUI . So it's wired , huh ? Before upating, it's available both in TUI and GUI, though all the time the network-manager shows no connection , in fact , there is and both GUI and CUI . Now I updated , and it can't access Internet from GUI.
I have my box setup as a router/NAT with two different network cards. One for external connection(connected to the Cable Modem) one for internal connection(used for internal DHCP). It works perfectly when I manually activate the two interfaces after booting(both interfaces always show up as inactive after booting), then the DHCP server and firewall. I am confused, however, by which program has control of these interfaces.
First, there is the Network Configuration (System->Administration->Network), which is where I manually start the interfaces after rebooting. Both interfaces are set to "Activate when computer starts" in here.
Second, Network Device control(System->Administration->Network Device Control), which looks to be almost the same thing as the above.
Third, the NetworkManager applet(on the top bar) - both devices show up as unmanaged when I left click on this, but if I set "Controlled by Network Manager" in the "Network configuration" window(number one above), It still does not work. Can I get rid of two of these programs, or is there some way to edit the startup scripts to start my ethernet cards before the dhcp server/firewall(which is shorewall BTW)?
Does anyone know where the System->Administration -> <Network Configuration> has been placed in F14? Can only find the System -> Preferences -> Network Connections, but here you have no checkbox to activate a device (although even so discribed in the HELP).
[bee@localhost ~]$ ulimit -a | grep files open files (-n) 1024
that open files value set to 1024, but is it valid only for real files ("file handles/descriptors" of files on your filesystems: hd partitions / cdrom / floppy / usb devices) or does it counts also network/sockets connections? i'm just asking without a reason. it's just curiosity ... as you can see sockets with lsof, somebody like me could think connections are counted as they were "files" by ulimit too
I want to write a custom rule to allow all connections to the ip addresses on my local network (192.168.2.2 through ...99) but I don't know how. I know adding a custom rule asks me to read a file and put it in "iptables" format, but I don't know how...
I have a machine that I'm trying to setup as a reverse web proxy. It will have two NICs, eth0 will face the public network, and eth1 will face the "internal" network (connects to a switch that goes out to the other web servers that are statically assigned a private IP address).
When both interfaces are started, I can ping hosts on the 22.214.171.124 network and the 192.168.10.0 network without problem when doing so by IP, but if I try to run a ping or nslookup command with a DNS name, it does not work. I've tried commenting out my entries in /etc/resolv.conf and adding the DNS entries in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX files directly (DNS1=x.x.x.x and DNS2=x.x.x.x), but the results are the same.
I just installed F15 on a laptop that previous had F12 working well. During install, it finds my wireless card and seems to set it up fine. The full install ran with the wireless active without any problem that I could see. Now, when I start up, I see Network Manager tells me that the wlan is active, but it doesn't show my specific network. If I click on the NM tray icon and open up the panel, my network is shown but it is not "active".
I can double click on it and it will become active - shows the little globe next to the antenna. This works fine for about 2 web pages worth and then FireFox 4 stops being able to find web pages. If I go back to the panel, double click on my wireless network (which looks like it is active already), and reactivate it, I can get the page I was looking for in FireFox, but within a couple of minutes it will stop.
Likewise with yum, while I'm installing software, I'll occasionally get errors like this: [URL]: [Errno 14] curl#6 - "Couldn't resolve host" If I reactivate my wireless network in the NM panel, it continues fine. Other computers/phones connected to this network seem to work fine. Is NM known to be problematic in F15?
I've got a Ubuntu Server Linux router that I've got 2 internet connections hooked to. One of them is DSL and the other is cable.
What I'd like to do is have everything go through the DSL connection EXCEPT for one desktop, I'd like that system to go through cable for everything.
Here's a diagram of how I've got things set up.
I don't have any more expansion slots on the mainboard of my server for another NIC, also I do a lot of file transferring between a laptop and the desktop I want on the cable connection so I don't want that slowing down the rest of my network.
I've got both providers set up in the providers file and I've got everything going through the DSL connection right now. So far everything I've tried has stopped the desktop from connecting out at all.
I am a user of Ubuntu 10.04 and I use Firestarter because it lets me know which IPs I am connected to, which ports are used, and which applications are using those ports. The problem is that I can't use Firestarter with my non-sudo account (well, I know that I can change my system settings to do that, but I'd rahther not do it).
So the question is: Is there any application that lets the user monitor the internet connection?
I have a firewall ( a pc with debian 5) with 2 internet connections. each connected to a ethernet card (the firewall has 2 ethernet pci cards so it has one connection per card)how can i balance the internet requests from my LAN using this 2 connections?
While using Ubuntu two other computers lose their connection. One (main) is connected to the modem, other from the switch to the wireless router, and the one with ubuntu wired via switch. Currently connected with Windows 7, other two are connected. Once booted into Ubuntu rest of the computers disconnect?
I Installed Ubuntu which was on the laptop before and this install doesn't want to work with a Internet connection. I know my connections is good and the Laptop is fine because it used to have dual boot and windows connected fine.
