Fedora Networking :: Gnome 3 Network Proxy Support (15)?

Aug 31, 2011

My work uses a proxy server to mediate connections to the internet. However, changing the proxy settings in NetworkManager seems to have no effect. When I change the proxy settings in firefox from "use system proxy" to the actual proxy settings then it connects fine - but I would much rather be able to change the system proxy so that it works with all applications.

This is not confined to firefox - I have the same problem trying to use wget in gnome shell. However ftp works fine. I have just looked at the environment variables and it appears that NetworkManager is not setting the http_proxy variable (it is however setting ftp_proxy and https_proxy).

Fedora Networking :: Does Network Manager In F15 Support Bridging

Aug 24, 2011

does Network Manager in Fedora 15 support bridging and if so, can you configure the bridge using your wireless interface? All of the information I've come across so far said that you can NOT create a bridge using a wireless interface, and that Network Manager doesn't support bridging, but this info was also from Fedora 12 and below, so I don't know if it's still relevant for Fedora 15. I would certainly hope that by now you can make a bridge from a wireless interface. Even the lowly VMware Player offers this option.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Set Any Proxy Settings In Gnome 3

I just can't set any proxy settings in Gnome 3 Network settings. Is it a bug or...?
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 and then used a PPA to install Gnome 3. Some other "problem" is I can't set single click opening of folders...

Fedora Networking :: Gnome-network - Properties Change Location By

Sep 28, 2010

In gnome-network-properties I've set up two proxy locations: default and remote.

It's a bit of a fag having to change between them via the gui depending on where I am. Can the proxy be changed by command line because then I can set up a script to use the right proxy automatically? - e.g. use remote proxy if my mobile is connected via usb.

Had a google but don't think gnome-network-properties has command line options so I might be approaching this from the wrong tack.

Ubuntu Networking :: Necessary To Edit Network Proxy In 10.04 LTS?

Jul 6, 2011

I need to set up network proxy for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (system->prefernces->network proxy)? In fact I can connect to internet using a modem without worrying about it but will it be better if I do? In firefox, should I edit proxy setting? the options are: no proxy, auto detect proxy, use system proxy, manual proxy, and there are severl proxies like HTTP proxy etc. Does proxy setting has anything to do with security?

Fedora Networking :: Pam_mount Not Mapping Network Drives On Gnome User Login?

Nov 18, 2010

Have been configuring fedora 14 to connect to a windows domain server and have been successful so far....am now on mapping network drives when the user logs in via the gnome gui.

If there is a better method of mapping network drives on login

After reading up on PAM_MOUNT and using that for mapping drives on login I have been able to successfully map them, but it doesn't do this automatically on gnome login.

Problem is as follows: It works when i connect / login using the terminal but requires me to enter the password once (even when i logged into the user account on gnome).

How I want it to work:I would like the mapping to occur when i login via gnome so that i dont have to open a terminal once logged in to gnome to map the network drives. I would like it to login without having to type the password again as the user is already logged in

Config Files:

#--- ~/.pam_mount.conf.xml ---#
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<volume fstype="cifs" server="GRA.GI" path="apps" mountpoint="/mnt/GRA.GI/apps"/>

Fedora :: Get EPS Image Support For A Gnome Browser?

Jul 22, 2009

I am trying to figure out how to get EPS image support for a Gnome image browser, in particular Eye of Gnome (EOG) -- the default image viewer in Gnome. In Nautilus, thumbnails appear fine for EPS images, but when opening them in Eye of Gnome or gThumb, neither program can open the images. EOG says "unsupported file format", and gThumb shows a blank screen. Apparently both programs can get additional image support, but I can't seem to get it to work.

I have ghostscript updated to the latest version, and I'm using Fedora 10.

Anybody know how to do this?

Networking :: Most Common Method To Route Network Traffic As A Router/proxy

Apr 22, 2011

I am using Debian 5 and I have some networking experience, however I want to learn to do this the best way possible. I have a Debian box with two nics and I want to connect that to a switch and use my Debian box as a router basically, as well as having a firewall setup within that too.

Should I use iptables to set up nat or the route command or what? I just want to know the group of tools to use in order to set up my network. Network diagram: Internet <------> Debian Box <----> switch <----> hosts I found some guides but they are for linux 2.4 and i'm not sure if they are right.

Ubuntu :: Proxy Support For Various Applications

Sep 24, 2010

There are some of applications that ship with ubuntu that do not have proxy support. I am a university student and I need to access internet behind a proxy server. But as some of the applications have no proxy support, I have to install alternate applications to do the same job.

Some of these applications are : Ubuntu Software Center, Gwibber, Empathy.Is there any program which can create direct connection to internet so that there is no need to specify proxy settings explicitly for each application? Is this kind of thing possible?

Fedora Installation :: GNOME 3 Support For Intel Graphics Chips And Nomodest

May 27, 2011

[A word of explanation: initially the post below followed a post by Adam Williamson in another thread devoted to inability to load GNOME 3 in VM; this is why I address Adam in the opening.]

Adam, the situation with the GNOME 3 support for Intel integrated graphics seems to be a little confusing. You are probably among the most competent to clarify it.

Let me tell my own story first.

I was installing earlier today Fedora 15 on an HP dm4-1160US laptop with i5 and Intel graphics, and the anaconda installer hung right after "Waiting for hardware to initialize..." flashed on the screen, before even Media Check screen was reached. I tried a few times, always with the sae result: anaconda hung. Then I decided to add nomodeset to the boot parameters and the anaconda installer went on and I was able to complete the installation without a slightest problem.

I rebooted and without a problem reached the GDM login screen. When logging into GNOME, a pop-up window informed me that the system was unable to load GNOME and that instead I would be logged into the fall back mode. By the way, I haven't experienced the problems that plagued "Classic GNOME" on another laptop of mine where instead of clean install I preupgraded from Fedora 14 (strictly following the guidelines for preupgrading).

Wireless card was recognized and wlan initialized, nearby wireless networks seen, yet I wasn't able to connect to my own wireless network (I tried to do this already in the process of installation, equally unsuccessfully).

I was able to connect via Ethernet cable, and then I proceeded to perform yum update.

The update brought a new kernel. I went into grub.conf and noticed that nomodeset has been automatically added to the boot parameters for each of the two kernels. I decided to perform an experiment: I removed nomodeset from the boot options for the new kernel, and left it in place for the anaconda installed kernel.

I rebooted into the new kernel. Right after the grub menu disappeared, the screen turned pitch black and stayed this way for good 10 seconds. I thought that the former situation repeats itself making impossible to boot without the nomodeset option. Suddenly, the screen lit up and the GDM login screen appeared.

I logged into a shiny GNOME 3 where I am writing these words right now. Ah, and I was also able to connect to the wireless (I made yet another attempt using the network manager applet -- this time it worked).

What does that seem to indicate? That GNOME 3 support is already available for Intel graphics chips? But one may need to play with the nomodeset cheatcode, as I described this above?

Debian Configuration :: Apache Reverse Proxy - No Support For Common Database

Apr 14, 2010

I installed apache2 and mysql database on a Debian system. It is using reverse proxy on apache to redirect requests to apache2 running on any machine which is on Xen server as a Virtual host. I tried to install Drupal on it. Every thing went fine till I pointed my browser to:
http://IP[/url] of LAN where Drupal was installed/drupal
then I see an installation page of Drupal which welcomes me. I click install in English then it can not proceed to connect with database. Database configuration: Your web server does not appear to support any common database types. Check with your hosting provider to see if they offer any databases that Drupal supports.

I have created a database and username for Drupal separately. What should I check to. There is one more error
http://Public IP/some location/
Is showing me contents of Document Root but there is a folder named drupal on it. When I click on it I get error. Not Found. The requested URL /drupal/ was not found on this server. Apache/2.2.9 (Debian) PHP/5.2.6-1+lenny8 with Suhosin-Patch proxy_html/3.0.0 Server at

What things should I check in for? I am also getting errors like:
- Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName on individual DomU's what should I check in. and on Dom0 when restarting apache2 I get following error.
- Reloading web server config: apache2apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName

Fedora :: Control Of Network Connections/network Startup - 9 Gnome?

Jan 5, 2009

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)?

Networking :: Forwarding All Traffic To The Proxy To Another Proxy

Oct 28, 2009

At the moment I have a proxy and all the users have to configure it in the browser to access internet. I want to make the users able to browse even without configuring the proxy in the browser. but eventually it should be received in the proxy rather than giving an error to the user. I heard with transparent proxy I can redirect all the traffic from a particular network, to a particular host( ie my existing proxy).

I tried this using firewall rules. But then the existing proxy doesn't understand the protocol of the requests. I heard that it should be in the kind of proxy protocol.

Fedora Networking :: Script To Set Proxy ?

Apr 3, 2009

I have a netbook running Fedora 10 that i use for work, whilst at work i move around allot of schools. Each have varying proxy settings etc... So i was wondering if it was possible to set the system proxy (the one in System->Preferances->Internet And Network->Network Proxy) from bash. That way i can write a script that looks at my IP (each school has a diff ip e.g. 10.x.y.z) and then sets the system proxy accordingly.

Fedora Networking :: Transparent Proxy With A Home Router?

Mar 8, 2010

I have set up many Dansguardian/Squid proxy servers. All of them have been on a network where I could use Microsoft Group Policies to force the proxy settings on each machine. The entire setup is quite easy, surprisingly robust, and reliable as hell.

My Dentist talked to me today and asked for something different. He wants to set his office up as a wireless hot spot for his patrons, and he wants their surfing directed through a proxy server. I plan on putting them on a completely different subnet and independent router. Now, since I won't have the convenience of GP I'm wondering if there is a way to force all internal Port 80 traffic through the Proxy server but obviously not the Proxy itself. I would like to use the router to do this and not the Linux box. Is there a low cost home router like Linksys or Netgear that will do this?
