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 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.
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 .
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 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.
I want to use the wifi card in my laptop to share my internet connection to my Android Phone.Android phones don't support Ad-hoc networks yet (maybe not ever) so I need to the shared network in Infrastructure mode not ad-hoc mode.Using Ubuntu 10.04, If I click on the NetworkManager Applet ( 0.8 ) and select Create new wireless network, it will create an ad-hoc network, I then tried changing this to infrastructure, but it didn't work.Is there some way of modifying this created network to make it appear as infrastructure, or alternatively create a shared internet connection in infrastructure mode?
A friend of mine is trying to setup internet connection sharing in Ubuntu, which is something I've never dealt with before. Here's the situation:One desktop PC is dual-booting Ubuntu and Vista. This box is connected wirelessly to the router and can access the internet just fine. The desired setup is to have an xbox360 connected (wired) to the desktop PC, allowing it to share the internet connection.
1) A crossover cable would need to be used between the desktop PC and the xbox. 2) The xbox would still have the router's internal IP as the default gateway (I have zero experience configuring networking on an xbox... I hope these options are easily available). 3) The internal IPs can all be on the same network (i.e. router = 192.168.1.1 ; desktop = 192.168.1.100 ; xbox = 192.168.1.101) 4) IP forwarding would need to be enabled on the Ubuntu host
Is there anything I'm overlooking or just oversimplifying, or should that just about do it?
I have an ubuntu 7.10 ICS server that works fine and I have routed my traffic using firestarter to my windows PC. my server's IP is 192.168.0.1 and my windows client is 192.168.0.2. now, I have bought another PC and I want to assign 192.168.0.3 to it and connect it to ubuntu server. in windows, all I needed to do was to connect the first client to first network card, second one to second network card, bridge two connections in my server, assign 192.168.0.1 to the network bridge in my server and 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.3 to my clients, then share my internet connection. I also could access shared files in any computer from all of them. can I have the same functionality with a linux server?
I'll make a list to make it easy if you don't wanna read the whole post:
things I want:
1. assign one ip address to multiple interfaces in linux, making them bonded.
2. sharing the internet connection with both clients.
3. ability to use all shared files over a 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'm trying to share internet connection with my wifi capable mobile device. For that I'm creating ad-hoc wifi connection in networkmanager with 'shared to other computers' ipv4 option. And there is the problem - the device cannot get the setting via DHCP. The firewall is adjusted properly by NM, dnsmasq is started. I've looked at dnsmasq arguments string and found that the temporary config file which is provided by NM is empty. So, where else should I look for a possible reason or should I just post a NM bug?
This configuration works perfectly on my router at my house which has the IP of 192.168.0.1
However at my friends house he has a router with the IP adress of 192.168.2.10 or 192.168.2.7*, I don't remember exactly but I'll find out tonight. I have tried changing my IP settings on my xbox and eth0 to no avail. I noticed instantly that the XBOX IP is the same as my friends router. what the new settings would be, or simply changing the router's IP.
However there is also an issue with the DNS servers. I can't find them anywhere on the router or on the router box itself. I heard that I could point it towards my default gateway however.
i have an evdo connection with which i connect to the internet. i have been trying to share this connection for quite a few days from my lucid machine to a windows 7 pc but have failed. i have tried dhcp3-server, firestarter, network manager's built in capabilities but have failed! today i manually configured da windows 7 pc to an ip address within da range which network manager ws assigning when 'shared to other computers' ws selected and it worked! Now da question is how do i do it automatically? dhcp3-server never starts, it always fails with the error 'not configured to listen' or sumthng like it! Plus i want the wireless of my laptop to make an ad hoc connection to my mobile fone, which is also no possible...i think its some problem with da dhcp server.
I'm trying to share the internet connection of my Windows XP Virtual Machine (virtualbox) to Ubuntu. I know it sounds weird, but what happens is that i'm using a 3G modem to connect to the internet and 3G connections are still very unstable with ubuntu's network manager. Fortunately, the modem works a lot better with my Virtual Machine. I have already set up a "host only" network between my Windows XP guest and my Ubuntu host and i can they can ping each other but i still can't share the connection of my virtual machine. I already selected "share this connection" on win xp but i think i still have to configure something on ubuntu for it to work. The interface Ubuntu uses is vboxnet0 (not eth0).
This is the last thing to do before i can get rid of my Windows XP partition
i have searched and searched for an answer but nothing i've found has worked for me what i have is an old computer with 2 network cards in it the 1 conected to the internet is eth1 one connected to the xbox via crossover cable is eth2, what i'm trying to do is share the internet connection to the xbox using ubuntu,i've tryed alreadyusing the network manager,using firestarter,ip tables,even nat,and all have failedi've been using ubuntu for 4yrs now, and i have always before been able to find answers to my problems by simply googling the answer. but this is one i can't seem to find an answer on.
configuring Internet Connection Sharing from my Ubuntu 10.10 machine to a Windows XP machine. I've seen How To's but they didn't work, yet.
The Ubuntu machine connects to the Internet through a DSL USB modem that required packages not provided with the distribution, and specific instructions to configure it; so getting Internet working alone was difficult. As a result, I don't even use Network Manager, rather connect using the command pppoe-start. The machine is connected to the Windows PC through a simple cable, through the Ethernet card.
Some tutorials I've seen on ICS are for machines with two Ethernet cards, or for wireless connections; but I've seen none for a USB modem. However I once found one, years ago, and it worked, but I couldn't find it now. It was using iptables, and I didn't really understand what I was doing, but it worked. But then I had to format the disk, and now I can't find a way to get it working again.
I have a laptop with Easy Peasy / Intrepid Ibex connecting to internet through wifi (firewalled VPN), a PC with Windows 7, and a crossed ethernet cable to connect them. How can I get Internet on the PC? I tried to connect them but I can't even ping each other!
I have a modem connected to my router (pfsense on 192.168.1.1) which is then connected to a wireless AP (192.168.1.253). A number of PCs pick up the wireless and all is well.I've just received another broken PC that I've kicked into life and was going to run a FreeNAS box with it to back up a number of the PCs on the network. I've actually hooked this up via ethernet to my "server" PC (192.168.1.125 on its wlan NIC). Its all set up so that the server eth NIC (10.42.43.1) is connected to the FreeNAS box (10.42.43.2) and the FreeNAS box can ping both interfaces of the server, the router and the net, and any other box on the 192.16.1.x network. The problem is that I can't for the life of me get any of the 192 boxes to ping the FreeNAS box. I'm presuming its a routing / gateway issue with the server box but being pretty damn hopeless with these things I've been stumbling about breaking things.
I have no internet in Linux due to my only way to get internet is through my blackberry curve phone sharing ( I think some call this tethering) internet to the pc. It works fine in winblows of course with the provided winblows software, so I booted over to Linux, fired up VMware workstation 6.5, set up the internet in it, and I have internet in my guest os in vmware which is 32 bit xp media center. I right clicked the connection from "network connections" and went to share this connection. Now I'd like to share it to my host os, 64-bit Ubuntu 8.10 in Raid 0. Do I need to be using NAT or Bridged. I've set up internet sharing before but not virtually.
I am fairly new on CentOS and am in the process of setting up a small home office network that shares Internet access through the Linux (CentOS) box.I have two network interface cards The Linux box is also the DHCP server. My challenge is to get the client machines to access the Internet! I have a PPP connection to the ISP. Essentially I followed these Instructions CENTOS REDHAT Internet Connection Sharing. Pretty straight forward but I am still not able to get clients to access the Internet. I defined the DNS server through DHCP (196.44.x.y). I assumed it has to do with default gateway and it is set as follows: on the Linx box the gateway is my ppp0 link. DHCP uses eth1 (LAN card) fixed IP as the gateway. All clients are reflecting this information. The firewall (iptables) is reflecting the FORWARDING and POSTROUTING rules as advised.
Is there a step I mioght have missed to get this working? I tried to Google but its not getting me far.
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 have been using windows 7 for awhile now, and i was using connectify (an internet connection sharing program that turns your laptop into a wireless router), and i'm planning on completely switching to Linux from a dual boot, and i was wandering if there is a way to share an internet connection (mainly to my PS3) on Ubuntu 10.04 x64, and wirelessly if possible, though i wouldn't mind if it was through Ethernet.
For the last 3 or so hours I have been trying in vain to simply give my mobile phone wifi internet access from my netbook. I have tried to google and follow some howto's and guides, but they're either too old or don't explain it very well. I'm fairly new to use of Linux and of wireless networks, but can handle setting them up in Windows. So basically, having said that, I believe I mostly understand how this whole thing is supposed to work theoretically but I just feel as though I lack the experience to jump the wireless hurdle AND the Linux hurdle at the same time. I have provided some information below.
- Setup is based on Lucid netbook remix install with a Maverick kernel update due to lack of driver support for wireless NIC - I can confirm wireless does work properly for connection purposes - I followed [URL] and kind of followed [URL however I couldn't even tell how to run Network Manager, even though Synaptic tells me it is installed - When I ran into problems trying to install ipmasq I found [URL] and followed what the response told me to which allowed me to restart the dnsmasq and the dhcp3-server at least - I have restarted the entire netbook several times throughout the process.
I am trying to establish an adhoc connection in my ubuntu 10.10 and share my cable internet throughout this connection with my Android phone. I have read some guides but I couldn't be successful. (I have another windows mobile, and it couldn't connect too). I have installed Firestarter in order to enable internet sharing. My main Problem is that, no one can obtain IP adress from the adhoc connection, whether Firestarter is active or not. What should I do in order to make the other devices gain IP address from this connection. If I have to set static IP what should I do exactly?
I've got access to my LAN and the Internet via my wired ethernet connection. I'd like to share that access with my iPod Touch (device shouldn't really matter) via an Ad-hoc wi-fi network.
This tutorial in the docs seems to describe the right setup but is very out of date (7.04). Instead I found this tutorial and followed it to create the Ad-hoc wireless network. I was able to connect my touch to the resulting ad-hoc network without a problem, but I didn't have LAN/Internet access.What's the next step to get the clients on the ad-hoc network out to the Internet?I found this page in the docs that says I'd need to install dnsmasq-base and uninstalling dnsmasq. I checked and dnsmasq-base is already installed but dnsmasq is not. I do have dnsmasq in /usr/sbin but the package description makes it sound like this should come with dnsmasq. Is the page out of date? Will uninstalling dnsmasq cause other problems?
