for the last one week i'm facing problem in sharing internet between xp and fedora. I'm connected to internet through wireless adapter in xp and wants to share internet through crossover cable between xp and fedora. I did the following steps.
1: start a network setup wizard in xp. 2: change the smb.conf file in fedora and change the workgroup name to same as in xp. 3:in Xp the ethernet adapter has address 192.168.0.1/24. 4: when i connect the crossover cable and start fedora. it couldn't get the ip address through dhcp. 5: when i tried giving the ip address manually "192.168.0.2/24 with gateway 192.168.0.1"and save the subnet mask is replaced by 192.168.0.1 don't know why it not saved.
i tried changing new ethernet card but not worked. some time avc denials message "SELinux is preventing consoletype (consoletype_t) "read" to /var/lib/dhclient/dhclient-eth0.leases (dhcpc_state_t)." comes. can any one tell me how to enable or make a network in fedora . i 'm very new in linux and couldn't able to share network .
In windows, when I use an HSPDA modem, internet traffic will be automatically directed through it. Everything will go back to normal once broadband connection is disconnected. In fedora 12 this is not the case, internet traffic will still go through the lan interface. Is there a way to mimic windows behavior in linux?
I want to connect my newly created Gentoo DAW to a Fedora 12 PC, for file sharing and Internet purposes. The Fedora PC has 2 NICs, where one of them is connected to the apartment's Router. The Gentoo PC has 1 NIC. I am using a crossover Ethernet cable for connecting them. [UPDATE] I changed to crossover cable, now my two machines are able to ping each other! Here's the IPs:
I just want to use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to connect to the internet. I have done a massive amount of troubleshooting, but some of it seems to contradict itself, and the only two things that I know for sure are that it used to work, and that my Ethernet cable is not the problem. When I use Terminal utilities like ifup and dhclient it seems that it can not determine IP information, but when I try to put it in manually, the "Apply" button grays out right after I finish typing it in. When I try to connect normally, in KDE or GNOME, the icon acts like it's connecting, then instead of having the connected icon, I receive a notification that "the network has been disconnected", and it goes back to the disconnected icon.
Oh, and by the way, I know that I could probably find a workaround, but I have limited resources, and this used to work. The Linux is a Dell desktop with Fedora 12 and the Windows is a Windows 7 HP laptop.EDIT: I hope that I didn't mess something up, but I accidentally used system-network-config to try putting in the IP address there, and ended up changing it back to the original settings, but the computer is now calling it Auto Ethernet in the taskbar icon, although sudo iwconfig in the terminal still calls it eth0.
I have a wired lan at home with 2 XP boxes connecting to a router to a DSL modem. I want to network my laptop, running only fedora os, for file sharing, printing and internet access. I will be using the laptop probably exclusively for creating/maintaining a Drupal-based (LAMP) e-commerce site to replace our old one for our small family business.
I am new with IP tables stuff and i have a problem....i have a pc Contain a fedora OS and i want to make a small network (4 PCs Contain XP OS) and using the pc of fedora OS as a firewall i want to Prevent the ping (i think it called(ICMP)) in the privat network and prevent one of the PCs from Browsing internet(prevent port 80 and 81 as i think) and i still don't know how to make the internet go Through the firewall to the private network...
I want to make make my fedora machine access-able over the internet. I want to assign IPV4 address to this machine( I already have one IP address ) which can be used for this. What configuration changes I need to make in fedora to make it accessable to the external world
I have several Proxy severs set up at our business. I always do the same basic config, except for my version of Fedora (I always grab the newest).
I put 2 nics in a machine Load Squid, Dansguardian and Firestarter. I use Firestarter to direct the surfing traffic from my LAN out a cable modem that I have for each store. This lessons the bandwidth on the T1.
Easy enough. My problem is Firestarter has always been a little flaky. But as of F11 the gui wont stay up for more than a few minutes at a time. It still functions, but you have to be quick if your going to use it because it will inevitable crash.
So I suppose it's time to start doing this the correct way and using IP Tables. Does anybody have a resource they can point me to that will help me understand how to do this? It looks like this might be as simple as setting it up with the GUI Firewall tool that comes with F12 but I'm still not exactly sure how.
At home I'm currently running Hardy on a desktop machine and Jaunty (Eeebuntu) on an EeePC. I often connect the desktop to the internet via a cellphone as modem. I also often connect the EeePC to the desktop via crossover cable and SSH into the desktop so I cam watch video files from the desktop on the EeePC from the sofa or bed.
I'd like to be able to use the desktop's internet connection from the EeePC. This means I have to set up the desktop so the EeePC can share its connection - this involves setting up the desktop as a gateway I believe?
Looking around for info on how to do this, I found this guide [URL]...in-ubuntu.html - but unfortunately it seems this guide has not been written correctly. It repeats itself in one section (below: repeated section in bold):
I'm trying to set up a wireless AP with Internet sharing. I currently have the AP setup with hostapd and a dhcp server. The clients can connect but there is not Internet sharing. Now my situation is somewhat uniqe in that my internet connection is my teathered android cell phone. The tether app is azilink and i use openvpn to create a virtual networking interface(tun0).
Several days ago, I replace my PC's motherboard and now sound is too low - I can't hear practically anything, I used alsamixer to configure output volume level to normal, but this won't survive reboot. I tried to use 'alsactl' and saveed rules, and edited rc.local to restore - but it didn't help. Can anyone tell me how to fix it?
I have a computer with two hard drives that plugs directly into the modem. When I run on my Windows XP drive I can get internet. On my fedora drive I can not even get a ping. If I type ping google.com I get ping: unknown host google.com If I type ping 18.104.22.168 I get connect: Network is unreachable
I have a BASH script which at one point asks the user a yes/no question. I want to make it so that if the user types in an invalid input 3 times consecutively then the BASH script will echo an error and terminate with exit status 1.
I have little question, how can i share internet in Ubuntu? In this case to Win 7? I have tried Firestarter, but that doesnt work... And please I do not have a router I just need simple connection from my desktop to my laptop, and I dont want another box collecting dust.
I'm trying to use my bluetooth connection on Opensuse 11.4 to share its internet access with my Windows 7 laptop.I've been able to link them together(send receive files) but cannot create an Adhoc network or share internet with the link.What should I try? Could someone point me into the right direction?I looked at one promising tread that looked as if it would work but cant find hcid.conf(did a complete file search and think it may have been changed in bluez).
I have two machines on the same network. I want to share files from my Red Hat server to my Fedora 11 box. I want to know what is the easiest, most secure way of doing so. My machines are on a public wire (not an issue really as I don't have sensitive stuff on there), however I'd like to learn how to secure the server, but yet still get access from my Fedora box. Anyone provide me with a guide or help on which protocol (SSH, Samba? NFS) to use?
So, I have 2 computers both running fedora 12. I have installed NFS, all of the nfs utilities, and the system-config-nfs thing. I have unblocked the ports in the firewall. I am certain that NFS is running (or at least that when I nmap myself, an nfs port is open).However, when I go into nautilus and go to network, it shows windows network, but no other computers.If I run nmap on localhost, or on my OWN IP, it shows that it's up. and NFS is up. but when I NMap the other computer, it's hidden and blocking ping probes (though using nmap -PN will penetrate that mask, and show that it too has NFS open.)
So, how can I get these two computers to recognize each other? or am I doing this whole thing all wrong? I'm just trying to set up file sharing.
How do I get it to play movies? It needs all kinds of codecs apparently. Is there a good source for these?I'm running Ubuntu on another machine. How do I connect to THAT?I was able to use samba in Ubuntu to connect to my windows network. Will that work to connect Fedora and Ubuntu?I get this when I try to use sudo in terminal.is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.How do I fix that and how can I log in as root? It won't accept my password even though I know it's right.
I have fedora12 installed on my old laptop. I would like to use it as a wireless router so that I can use my new laptop without wires. The old laptop will be wired connected to the internet. I have already tried creating a wireless ad-hoc connection with the Network Manager and I manage to connect to the internet with my new laptop but only if I don't use any protection. If I want that connection to use WPA or WEP-128 it doesn't work!
I have fedora12 on two pc's, i want to share some files between them which i was not able to do with nfs, so let me know the whole procedure to do that n also let me know where my shared files will be visible
My wife and I activated the 'Personal File Sharing' on our two Fedora #9 laptops. We can exchange photos and text files via our "public" folders, just fine. Entire setup took less than 20 minutes. We have not been able to get the Fedora #14 version of 'Personal File Sharing' to work using same, online and 'in system', help directions for both the F#9 and F#14. After four eves of looking I have not found any more detailed, install/activate help files anywhere. I can't ask my system manager because that's us. At this point the only thing I can think of is that there may be some part of the F#14 security structure that needs to be addressed and tweaked.
I have a laptop running Windows XP with a secure wireless internet connection. I want to share this connection to my desktop running Ubuntu 9.10 via an direct ethernet cable connection. So far in Windows I checked the "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" in the Wireless Network Connection Properties menu. Doing this creates a new IP Configuration. Here is an output of running the ipconfig command: Windows IP Configuration
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and trying to use Internet Connection Sharing through my Dell Mini 9 laptop.
The incoming internet is from wireless The outgoing internet is from Ethernet I am using a crossover cable as I have heard this is necessary I followed the 9.10 method on my Auto Eth 0 connection Here is a link to the Ubuntu Documentation I used The computer I am trying to share to does not pick up the internet being shared from the cable.
