I have ndiswrapper installed, and have successfully installed the drivers, I have also used nm-applet (and x forwarding) to configure wireless connections. My problem is that I want to reboot and unplug my wired connection and use just my wireless connection, but when I reboot it doesn't seem to connect to my network.
is there a command line tool or an independent tool that i can launch forwarding x I can use to search for and connect to wifi networks that would also have the ability to save configuration so that when I reboot the system automatically connects to my wifi?
I run Ubuntu, and it has a nice GUI widget thing that connects me to my home wireless network when I boot. I don't have a problem with that. But suppose I don't start X, and boot to a recovery console for some reason, like I did recently when my graphics were broken after installing Karmic. In that case, my computer won't be connected to the wireless network until I log into X normally. So I can't apt-get anything or anything. It's very annoying. And I don't know how to connect to my wireless network.
I know my wireless network SSID, and I know my WEP key or WPA passphrase. How can I log onto the network with commandline tools? Is there some basic program that I can just run "networkmanager <myssid> <mywepkey>"? I looked at the iwconfig man page and I honestly couldn't figure out how to simply connect to my network. Once I figure out how to connect to the network with command-line tools, where can I put an "autoconnect" script so that it will connect during startup, like it should anyway?
What I don't understand is, why the Ubuntu network manager nm-applet, doesn't just work as a front-end for more basic networking stuff. I don't see any reason why it should require you to start X before working; it could be a daemon that runs at startup, and there could be a config-file somewhere, but it doesn't even start running until I log onto gnome.
I have setup my wireless card via ndiswrapper and I can see that if I perform an iwconfig that the card is wlan0. I have attempted to connect with the router but I can't get any connection.I know the password is: ########## (10 digits long) but for the life of me I can't get it to work via command line.
I stupidly turned off my computer as I was updating to KDE 4.7. Now when i start it i get to the log in screen, but imputting my username and password just causes the Xserver to restart and i get back to the log in screen.I know there are many other packages I should install as part of the update and i think this will solve my problem, so i am trying to connect to wireless through the command line login, and then install the updates.
I've been familiarizing myself with the command line and am attempting to connect to a wireless network but am getting stuck at the point wherein I need to put in a password.When I run iwconfig I see my card is wlan0.I definitely know my password as I can connect using a GUI. The encryption method for my network is WPA2.Could someone tell me how I could connect to a WPA2 secured network via a command line, and/or where I went wrong with what I've been trying?
I am trying to do a command line installation.Finished the installation and my wireless card wasnt working.Did a "sudo ifconfig wlan0 up" and got it working.But for some reason wireless-tools is not installed thus I dont have iwconfig, iwlist, etc.The wireless works and connects fine off a liveUSB.So I am going to give info from this liveUSB run and maybe someone can suggest how I can set the right settings on the Command Line Installation I presume in the etc/network/interfaces.
This is a bit of a long shot and I think the answer will be no but I thought I'd ask just in case. I have a number of tutorials in html but I want to be able to search for particular information in these files and display that information in the terminal rather than having to go through a browser. Apart from using grep which gives a pretty messy display or having to write a a specially Bash or python script, is there any command line tools that can provide such a function?
I am looking for a powerful command line tool to send and receive data via socket I mean define IP , port and data other options for command to send and receive data from sender.(like a high level socket programming)
I am looking for a tool that will tell me, in less than half a second, if the microphone is picking up any sound above a certain threshold. (I plan to then mute the Master channel with another command line tool, like amixer.)
I'd like to measure network latency for SNMP GET request. There is a free command line tool time which can be used to find timing statistics for various commands. For example it can be used with snmpget in the following way:$ time snmpget -v 2c -c public 192.168.1.3 .184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.1.10.2IF-MIB::ifInOctets.2 = Counter32: 112857973real 0m0.162suser 0m0.069ssys 0m0.005sAccording to the manual, statistics conists of:

Just a quick question, is there a system user management app that could be accessed via a website for red hat (or really any distro)? Something kinda like phpMyAdmin, but can do useradd, userdel, groupadd, etc. For remote admins who don't know how to use ssh or the command line.
I'm trying to create a liveCD/USB for use of myself and my family. The idea is to set up the LiveCD to look like their used to seeing it. I know I can just copy the homedirectory but I wanted to do it via script so new user accounts could also have the common bells and whistles we use.So really I have two questions.1. Is it possible to add programs to the Gnome Tool Bar from command line? aka via a script2. Is it possible to modify the default panel template so new users get my changes?
I've read up some of the posts on this forum, but can't seem to find an answer. I have a web service within an Apache Tomcat instance installed on a Redhat linux server. I only have shell access to the server, and need to monitor outbound network traffic from my web service. Is there a unix command that will allow me to monitor all outbound traffic? I'm thinking fiddler, but a unix version? I've heard of things like ntop and iptraf, but I don't think those will help me in this instance.
For reasons that are not terribly interesting I decided it would be a great idea to remove and re-install the xserver-xorg package. Which proved to be a much larger mistake than I imagined it would be. I purged the package, and then restarted.Naturally I need to have an internet connection to use apt-get to reinstall xserver-xorg, which is where my idea falls apart.I followed the directions in the How To: Manual Network Configuration. However, after I enter the command "sudo dhclient wlan1" I get the line "wmaster0: unknown hardware address type 801" twice prior to the output that the above link shows. Then I just get DHCPDISCOVER messages until I get a "No DHCPOFFERS received. No working leases in persistent database - sleeping."
I'm connecting with WEP to a router that I know works (because I'm using it to type this on my laptop right now) and I know that the wireless adapter(RTL8187) is installed properly because it automatically connected to my network when I had xserver-xorg still installed.I'm running ubuntu 9.04.I've searched for a few hours and I'm no closer to resolving the issue.
Basically, I need a command line solution for sending an HTTP POST request essentially clicking on a button. For future reference, it'd be helpful to know how to send a POST request with, say, a username and password if I ever find myself in that situation in another hotel or airport.
I'm thrilled using wicd to connect to wireless networks. But when I suspend my laptop using the special keys, I just want to disconnect from wireless without having to use any kind of GUI or curses user interface. It says in the documentation that wicd works by sending DBUS messages, so presumably it's possible to write a command that talks to the daemon directly.But I can't figure out how.Does anybody know by means of what shell command I can tell the wicd daemon to disconnect me from my wireless network?
The university I go to uses a WPA2 wireless network that requires a netID and password to connect too. I installed wicd but I can't seem to connect to this network, is there a way to add this functionality to wicd, and if so, how do I do that (links to a how-to or guide would be nice, I've yet to find one).
Also, I spend most of my time on campus in the command line, so I'd like to know if there is a way to use command line utilities to connect to this network (again, a guide or how-to would be nice)
I can get online through my fedora live USB just fine (w/ network manager) but I'd rather get on directly from slackware.
