Fedora Networking :: Samba And Network Manager In 9 - Setting Up A Wired Connection?
Feb 3, 2009
I have 2 workstations that I'm trying to network together so that I can backup each to the other. One is XP sp2 and the other Fedora 9. Since installing Samba on the Fedora box and trying to get it configured, I have a problem that Add/remove programs won't do installs because it says there's no connection to a network. Network Manager says there aren't any connections, but it worked before the Samba install. Mozilla and Thunderbird can access the internet OK. Both workstations are connected by cable to my router and thus to my ISP (DNS server).
Two questions:- where can I find hints on setting up a wired connection (which card's MAC address does it want? router or wrkstn?) and Am I right that Add/remove is stuffed because of Network Manager?I now have Samba working from Linux to XP, but still can't get into Linux from XP. I tried the Linux PC's MAC address and set up a wired connection in Network Manager. NM still thinks there isn't one...
I've installed F10 on my laptop since few days and I'm facing an annoying networking issue: the network connection seems to work well when, suddently, it goes down for a while, and then come back.This happens with both wired and wireless (Intel PRO/ Wireless 3945ABG) connection.
I am a complete noob with computers, especially when Linux is installed.The problem is that when I plug in my wired network cable - it just dont connect. Writes "disconnected".I do not use a modem, just a single cabel.I think the problem is just in my knowledge which numbers where to wirte and which one to tick.May you please write what I should wirte ( IP, MAC or smyh)and shouldnt write mannualy and where. What to open and even the smalest step.
I have the problem with my notebook, that, after I used it at work, the network-manager always tries to autoconnect after boot. He has no cable network and so I get the message "not connected" after a while.how to tell the network-manager, not to autoconnect each time?
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?
Fresh install of Fedora 14 from Live cd.Used it for an hour or so, d-loaded some programs, had ti all running great. Wired connection to internet. Had the Network Connection Manager icon in panel. There was an icon saying new updates, alot of them, like 400 or so. Told it to go ahead and up date, left room. Came back hour later was done, said it needed to re boot, so I did. From then on, no internet, not icon, no Network Connection in the drop down list for preferences.
What I have tried:Worked off live cd, again, all works fine, icon, manager, internet all there.In installed version: In terminal, typed service Network Manager, it said unrecognized service.Did yum install network manager. It started to do it, but looked like it was trying to get stuff off mirrors, and of course there is no internet access. error PYCURJ ERROR 6.Of course I can re install, but I figure I will just end up in the same place a few hours from now.
I have installed recently the Fedora 8 in a computer and during installation it was set a static IP with the netmask and gateway. At first it worked well, but after some boots the connection begins to fail. It seems that the network-manager withdraws the static IP and tries to get connection via DHCP. Below is the /var/log/messages file during the failed connection:
Code: Sep 19 10:36:53 canario avahi-daemon: Interface eth0.IPv4 no longer relevant for mDNS. Sep 19 10:36:53 canario avahi-daemon: Withdrawing address record for fe80::20d:87ff:fe0c:355f on eth0. Sep 19 10:36:53 canario NetworkManager: <info> SWITCH: terminating current connection 'Auto Ethernet (eth0)' because it's no longer valid. Sep 19 10:36:53 canario NetworkManager: <info> Deactivating device eth0. Sep 19 10:37:07 canario system-config-network: -+ //etc/modprobe.conf #011eth0 alias sis900 .....
I have updated the system this morning and the vpn stopped working!It gives me an error: invalid secrets.I use network manager to connect to a pptp vpn connection, I use fedora 12.Does anyone know the problem?
Just replaced a working install of Ubuntu because i like GS over unity but i cant get my USB760 EVDO card to work. The usual fix of editing the cd.rules file and copying some information into modem.fdi does not seem to work on F15..
Also, noticed that when i attempt to create a broadband connection using network manager it allows me to go through all of the setup dialogs, but never actually adds the broadband connection.
Have searched for this and am sure the answer is out there somewhere, but I can't find it. My wired network is configured as AUTO, and is DHCP, I can add a new static config, but can't get it to load, as the original AUTO always loads on a reboot. I need to be able to run sudo Network manager so I can reconfigure the default..
I recently installed fedora 15 on my computer but I have a huge problem. I can connect to my router wirelessly for a couple of minutes only. Afterwards my computer has no Internet connection although the network manager and the icon on the upper bar says that i am still connected. I tried editing the /etc/rc.local and /etc/resolv.conf as mentioned in other posts in here bit no luck so far.
I have a pppoe adsl connection. When I disconnect and try to reconnect, network-manager keeps asking for my password. I type it again and again with no success. When I reboot, it works again. On ubuntu, I use pppoeconf and it works well. So on Fedora I made a connection with pppoe-setup but neither ifup nor Code:
pppoe-connect commands work. When I type Code: pppoe-connect , it says Code: /usr/sbin/adsl-start: line 217: 13409 Terminated $CONNECT "$@" > /dev/null 2>&1 . When I type
Ifup ppp0 doesn't work either. However, with exactly the same settings, ubuntu connects to the internet.
This has already been asked, and answered here: [URL] but there is one problem, this requires a window manager, and network-manager. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 Minimal with no window manager, and i want to recreate the exact effects of the second post in the above thread.
I have one desktop (Ubuntu 9.10 Minimal) with a USB wireless adapter (wlan1) and an ethernet port (eth0). I want my second desktop (also 9.10 Minimal; connected to desktop 1 via ethernet on eth0) to recieve the connection through desktop 1's wireless. I realize this is rather easy with network-manager, but I am not sure how to go about it through command line.
Since this morning I cannot get any network connection working from regular boot up. I'm beyond frustrated.I booted into windows xp for the first time in at least a year today and connected fine.I booted into recovery mode -> then failsafe graphics mode , two times and had internet one of the times.I'm writing this from live cd.I have a feeling it is something super simple to fix but ...Here is my ifconfig -a from regular(not working network boot)
Code: ry@ry-desktop:~$ ifconfig -a eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:24:1d:71:13:55
I had some problems installing 10.04, which I'm not going into here unless I have to, but it appears to be up and running now except my PC can't access the network, even though it's wired. This is the first time I've tried putting on a new build by myself as my son always used to do it (my PC used to belong to him many years ago, and is old, like me.)
Okay, a couple of weeks ago I was running 10.04, got an auto update that needed a firefox restart, so rather than restart, I just shutdown the computer for the weekend. When I booted the computer on Monday it would find sites (www.google.com, start.ubuntu.com) but it wouldn't download the necessary items to load the page. Now I have a windows laptop sitting next to the ubuntu box and it was online with no issues, so I know it wasn't the connection itself. So I decided that the update messed up the system so I downloaded 10.10 and installed that and ran that all last week.
On Friday I got a system update that required a firefox restart, so I ran firefox for the day and decided that since it was friday, I would just shutdown the computer and reboot on Monday.Well now Monday is here and now I again have sloooowww internet, to the point that URL.. times out and won't come up. I have tried doing a traceroute on both machines and the windows box gets all the way to www.google.com, but the ubuntu box gets about halfway there and then gets no response. I am at a loss, I don't want to reinstall every week. I did try to reboot and run the previous version of 10.10 that shows in the boot menu, but that does the same thing. One thing I did notice is that the broadcast ip is different than the machine IP, don't know enough to know if this is a problem.
I'm trying to set up a wireless or wired network (wireless would be better...) to share my connection with my housemate, as well as with some devices. The only guide I found regarding this (I must admit, I didn't have much time to put into research), was dating back to 2005, and although doable, seemed somewhat confusing. Getting to the point: is there a way (maybe a standalone program, or some kind of plugin) to share a connection?
I believe I'm running Kubuntu 10.04, but don't quote me on that. Here's the version string from dmesg. Linux version 2.6.32-31-generic (buildd@crested) (gcc version 4.4.3 (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5) ) #60-Ubuntu SMP Thu Mar 17 22:15:39 UTC 2011 (Ubuntu 2.6.32-31.60-generic 188.8.131.52+drm33.14 I have an emergent problem with my wired ethernet resetting the connection on a frequent basis. When it resets it re-negotiates the link speed and I often end up with a 10Mb/s link and on some occasions a 100Mb/s. The configured speed for the link is 1000Mb/s full duplex using a preup ethtool command. I do not use NetworkManager but have the interface configured in /etc/network/interfaces.
I am trying to set a fix ip address with network manager since my router is not able to set it in order to make port forwarding for aMule.I managed to set the IP address and also de primary/secondary DNS on network manager.My question is: should I set the same DNS on bot the router and network manager?More detail: my router has its own DNS's other than those of OpenDNS. At the moment, I left those DNS's on the router and set up the OpenDNS ones on network manager.Is it correct or should I set the same DNS's on both the router and network manager? In this case, would it be a waste of time since there will be a sort of "double requesting" to the same DNS? Or one of the 2 DNS settings overrides the other one (for example, just the network manager DNS's are considered)?buntu NattyKernel 2.6.38-10-generic #46-Ubuntu SMPNetwork Manager version 0.8.4~git.20110318t152954.9c4c9a0-0ubuntu1
just installed Fedora 15 on my laptop Samsung RF511Everything works perfectly fine but It seems that I cannot connect to the internet.When I clicked Network icon on the right top corner of the screen, only two option came out:Wired - cable unpluggedNetwork setting.How do I solve this problem. Since the laptop is not connected to the internet, I cannot use command yum.P.S. Samsung RF511 using Broadcom.
Another question, My laptop has two graphic cards. Intel and Nvidia Optimus.Can Fedora 15 use the Nvidia card?Please tell me step by step or send me a link tutorial for beginner to setup my internet since I am very new at linux.
After i install it i lost my internet connection . i got a message " Wired Network " " you work offline ". i use cable ADSL ,.... my Pc information HP Pavilion 6700 running with both Window 7 & Ubuntu 10.10 note... my network connection work correctly on W7.
I have a Mandriva linux box connected by cable to my router. When I stream audio using this box it crashes all the wireless computers on my network. There is no effect on wired computers. All but the one computer are windows (xp or vista). The affected wireless computers are not able to even find my wireless network. I have to reboot the router to get them online.
I have a home network with Ubuntu (3 PC) Windows (XP 3, 7 1 vista 1) and Lacie networked drive. I have successfully edited fstab to mount the lacie drive at startup on my main ubuntu PC and it works a treat. My problem is setting up the Unbutu PCs to browse the workgroup. This was working but now (since my last update of Unbutu I think) I get prompted for a password and no matter what I do it does not let me browse.
Now I have read a few things on Samba and do not have the time or ability to become a network engineer. All I want to do is is have on my Ubuntu the same browsing ability that seems to come out of the box in Windows.
The problem isn't with thew new computer but with my computer running Ubuntu. The problem is that I'm having trouble getting the Internet to work. Before the router I just plug my PC straight into the modem but now with the router I can't get on the Internet. I can get a connection to the router but no Internet. I know the it is not the router because I use my PS3 and it worked fine. I spend like an hour just trying to get the connection but can't figure out the Internet problem. What I did to get the connection is copy the ip address, Mac, and etc. from the PS3. Then I made a new connection and put the data in the IPV4 settings and it got a connection but I'm not sure if I did that right or just got lucky
im on node1 when i type the command ssh node2@ip the terminal hangs up a bit then an error message stating that connection timeout but here is a thing: i cant ping to node2 but i can terminate the ping manually using ctrl+c when i terminate the ping usual message appears stating 10 packets transmitted, 100% loss
ps: when i go to node3 and ssh to node2 it works fine and also i can ping from node3 to node2 very fine. and the firewalls are down at all nodes -all wired connection over a switch
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.
