Fedora Networking :: Network Connections In TUI While Not Available In GUI
Jun 18, 2009
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 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.
[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'm working with a Ubuntu 10.04 LTS system with two network interfaces (both Ethernet). I wish to setup this system such that it is simultaneously connected to my local and an OpenVPN network and able direct traffic between the connections depending on what program is sending the traffic. The problem: Under my current OpenVPN configuration all network traffic is directed to the VPN.
In practice, I would like OpenVPN to operate out of one of my two network interfaces and leave the other interface connected to the local network. Then by default all network traffic should be directed to my local network unless I specify (on a per program bases) that certain traffic should go though the VPN. These two network connections can (should) stay completely independent of each other and do not need to talk to each other.
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)?
Neither of my wired network connections are listed in the network manager applet. I know that networking seems to be functional since I can ping local devices on the network. I can't resolve DNS names however. I suppose this is because network manager usually handles DNS? I've posted the outputs of various configurations below.
/etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.cfg # This file is installed into /etc/NetworkManager, and is loaded by # NetworkManager by default. To override, specify: '--config file' # during NM startup. This can be done by appending to DAEMON_OPTS in
I'm having trouble running 2 network connections on an Ubuntu 10.10 machine. My wireless connection provides my internet access and is assigned the ip 192.168.1.7 My ethernet connection provides access to a separate network containing a nas box/server. The ip address for this is 192.168.5.100 When I am only connected to the wireless network, the internet works fine. However, once I connect to the ethernet network, I lose internet access via browsers and email client I cannot ping external web servers. It doesn't appear to be an ip address conflict so I'm at a loss as to what is causing my internet connection to drop.
Here is the layout of my network:My cable modem plugs into eth0 on my ubuntu server which acts as a firewall (shorewall) and dhcp server to my lan. A dd-wrt access point is plugged into eth1 and then a bridge connecting my xbox360 and another bridge connecting a desktop computer.Everything works pretty well, except a few times a day, my network will just shut down. The wireless on my macbook and my wife's laptop will just shut down, and if my xbox is running, it will lose connectivity. It will be down for maybe a minute or two, and then come back up like nothing ever happened.I never had this problem when I had just a dd-wrt router running everything instead of my server.When I ssh into my server afterwards and run dmesg, this is what I will get:
Code: [398598.251548] martian source 169.254.1.255 from 169.254.1.33, on dev eth1 [398598.251565] ll header: ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:00:23:69:3d:b1:82:08:00
i've installed ubuntu 11.04 on a friends Asus Eee pc 1005HA netbook. after the installation i tried to connect to the router using wireless, and when i enter the key, it fails to connect, so i tried using an Ethernet cable to connect but that doesn't work either,the network devices on the computer are:
Atheros AR8132 PCI-e fast ethernet controller Atheros AR 9285 wireless network adapter
It lists the wireless device and the solutions to the problem, however, the solutions seem to be for Ubuntu 10.04 and also 10.10, and im not sure if it will work for 11.04 so far i have been unable to find out anything on the forums about the ethernet
I am total newby in Ubuntu 10.04. I have just installed it in my office where I have two networks card one connect to a router giving the internet access and the other connected to the windows based work network providing access to the work network sources. In XP everything works fine as I can keep both connections alive and have the results I want.
However although I don't know how to do it in Ubuntu 10.04. Till now I have setup the first connection directly to my router and I have internet access but I cannot set the other one. Another question is how I can force ubuntu to use the router connection as the default one when I log in.
Since I installed ubuntu 10.04 I dont see my eth0 card in System->Preferences->Network _connections. Everything works fine but it puzzles me. In ifconfig iI just see the eth0, networking seems to be working fine, but it keeps puzzling me. Adding theinterface is no solution: add it and it doesnt show again
Using xubuntu 11.04, how do I maually give myself a static IP address and other IPv4 settings? I see the edit connections panel and saved a setting there but can't see how to use that setting. The only useable setting when I'm connected by ethernet is Auto eth0.
i'm currently using ubuntu 10.04 and wanted to update to 11.04 and that means backing up all sorts of data and configuration.Regarding the wireless configuration list, i have a few with password and auto connect, i wanted to know if there is a way of saving that listconfiguration other then manually.
What I want is quite simple, I have my PC running Linux Mint 5 (Elyssa), and I would like to connect it to both an internal network, which has a file/print server, another machine and will soon host a small cluster. I also have a wireless router connected to the tinterweb.
The thing is using my ethernet I want to connect to the internal network whilst simultaneously using my wireless to deal with the internet, I want to keep the internal network off the net as it really doesn't need to be connected. I can connect to my internal quite happily and also my wireless but not both at once.
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.10 64bit on my laptop Toshiba Satellite A665-S6065 and I can connect to wired network but I can not connect to wireless network "Network Connections disconnected". Im following this post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6183681
1. Machine Brand and Model (PC/Laptop): Toshiba Satellite A665-S6065 2. Wireless Brand, Model and Wireless Chipset:
I am running Ubuntu 9.04 as a partition with windows 7 on a acer aspire 5742, I would like to connect to the internet in Ubuntu, wirelessly, but I am unable to turn my wireless on in Ubuntu, and network manager says "no network connections available". I have the following network adapters:
All connections on my computer start loading and then hang: it happens when running apt-get update (a few repositories load successfully and then it hangs at a random one) and when loading web pages with the browser (it says "Connecting...", then "Waiting for....", sometimes some part of the page loads, and then it hangs).
This happens both with my wired and my wireless connection. It does not happen on Windows on the same computer.
I messed up my Network Connections when I put a different NIC in my computer. Now I just went back to using the old NIC. It shows up in ifconfig, but the GUI Network Connections is blank. When I manually Add the connection back to the GUI Network Connections, the settings are not reflected when doing ifconfig.For example, I change the IP address for eth0 in GUI Network Connections, save the settings,
I have a bunch of Ubuntu boxes on one subnet, 192.168.1.0. I have a Windows 7 box on another subnet, 192.168.2.0. I am able to ping and SSH to all servers on the .1 subnet except for one server, which I will call PITA. I will attempt to SSH to PITA, and it won't respond, nor does it respond to pings. I will the SSH to PITA from another of the test servers, successfully connect, and then when I SSH from my Windows 7 machine I can connect successfully. If I first connect via console to PITA and send some pings out (to anywhere, like 126.96.36.199), I can also connect from my Windows 7 machine. I've never seen anything like this.
One of the weird things is that I used PITA to create an image that I then used to create many of the other test servers, and they work fine, so I'm not sure what the problem is. I've checked /var/log/messages and syslog and there's nothing in them that indicates a problem. I've rebooted this server, restarted SSH, changed the IP in case it was conflicting with something else, forced an ARP update in case it was cached (since I had bonded the interfaces), cleared the ARP cache on my own machine, verified Network Manager is not installed...and I still have this issue.
Here are some network-related config:
# 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
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).
I just installed Fedora 14 in a hard disk of my PC. I installed MySQL also. I dontt know if this is the correct site for my question, but nobody MySQL related, have an answer yet. For MySQL accepting remote connections, my.cnf file must be edited (bind-address line or skip-networking line in that file). Well, that file in my Fedora-MySQL installation does not have such lines, so i assume, TCP/IP connections are allowed in MySQL. When i try to connect to the MySQL server it refuses the connection with the error 2003, that in short, means no TCP/IP connections are allowed. I disabled the firewall and retried but with no success, enabled the firewall again, and nothing happen. Is Fedora not accepting TCP/IP connections?
ok so the router works in windows and i know the config details of it.i can see other wifi access points in the area but not my one. i have tried joining it as a "hidden network" to no avail.is there any reason why fedora would not detect my own wifi when it detects substantially weaker signals instead??
Ok So i installed edubuntu yesterday, and it was working flawlessly. Now suddenly the "Network Connections" icon in the top panel, to the left of clock and at the side of volume controller is missing. I don't know how to connect to my DSL Broadband internet!I'm using the "sudo pppoeconf" command temporarily to connect to internet. I've BSNL broadband internet connection, I live in India. Please help me how to bring back the networkconnection icon, so that i may connect net again. Like in the above picture, there are "2 oppositely pointing arrows" showing the network connection icon, to the side of volume controller. How to bring it back? It suddenly disappeared on itselfI googled a bit and found that some people told to press alt+f2 and type some command (which i forgot and am not able toremember, sorry!). But that didn't work, although it worked for the person who had the same problem as mine.
I have openSUSE 11.2 installed and i need to create a gateway server that allows virtual private network connections. I want to play with my friends some lan games, but we are in different networks, so i want to create this gateway server so we can connect with VPN clients to this server and play freely.
