General :: Windows - Find Out Which Authentication Protocols A WiFi†network Uses?
Aug 16, 2011
I want to connect my Debian Squeeze machine to my school wireless network with wpa_supplicant.
I think the network uses 802.1X authentication, because when the other students connects to the network for the first time in Windows they enter their username and password then the connection is established. I have asked the the IT staff but they do not known what 802.1X, PEAP EAP etc. is and just say "Enter the login details in the box!".
If I bring a Windows 7 machine to school and successful connects to the network, is it then possible for me to extract the information [and extract a certificate if used on the network] from Windows somehow so i can setup the wpa_supplicant.conf correctly on Debian?
The information I want to extract is which protocols are used, like PEAP,MSCHAP etc.
I m pretty new to Linux..! I've been given a task to modify network protocol(TCP in particular). So now i've to make few changes to the kernel which includes modifying few source files. So i want to know how can i go abt it. Till now i've explored various .c files of kernel(Eg.tcp.c,tcp_input.c etc etc)by referring few books. And now comes the important part of implementing it. So how exactly can i go abt it?? I went thru various threads like installing a kernel,compliling a kernel and other things. But i m not getting the exact sequence in which i should do it. I've installed fedora 10. But i cannot see any source files which i can modify. Where and how can i modify these files?
I installed today (fresh install) the latest version of squeeze, and after installing kuser, I attempted to run the program (of course as root), so that I can start managing accounts with my preferred application. However, this is what I got when I attempted to run the program:
# kuser QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme. Qt: Session management error: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported kuser(3136): Session bus not found KCrash: Application 'kuser' crashing... sock_file=/root/.kde/socket-hostname/kdeinit4__0 Warning: connect() failed: : No such file or directory KCrash cannot reach kdeinit, launching directly.
I have to setup a WiFi network for a hotel. There are several possibilities, but for me the best one is to setup a open Wifi network with web authentication for single user. What is the best solution in terms of compatibility, security, reliability, etc? I don't know many solution for web authentication, only the RADIUS project.
Ive been using fedora 11 fora few months now and suddenly today after I booted up fedora network authentication(the little icon that lets me choose wifi networks) isnt showing up in the upper right hand corner which isnt that big of a problem but the fact that its on start up applications and its not wondering is what Im wondering about but on top of that my internet doesnt work at all.It will work for a little bit after boot then die and when I go to network authentication and network manager no wifi networks show up and I have about 5 around my house not including my own which is also what ive been wondering.
When my router switches off... the wifi signals go off... then why the hell ubuntu keeps on connecting to that very wifi like hell and when doesnt connect shows the prompt to manually connect... with the wifi key already filled in... whats the use of saving the key when it has to ask the question from me either to connect or not?? and if its isnt available... just wait when its available.. and for the prompt,i have only option to cancel(because wifi isnt available at that moment if i select connect it again tries to connect like hell..which it cant) and if i cancel it wont auto-connect when wifi does get available! what the heck?
Windows has this done the right way... when the wifi isnt available.. it dissconnects silently.. and when it becomes available connects silently.. why isnt this been done this way in ubuntu??
Ive attached an image..one can see in the image that it says "authentication required by wireless network" when there isnt any.. as router has gone down!
And the second thing i want to report is that there is no way to report this bug from ubuntu... the launchpad.net talks of going through bug reporting process which is done against a definite package... now how does a user know which package would be causing this error?? there should be a more clear process of reporting such bugs to ubuntu team... which a common man using ubuntu( ubuntu says its most user friendly of all distros right?) can report..
I have Mandrake 7.1 installed on a laptop and I have several problems that an upgrade would likely fix or provide a path that will support a fix. The Mousepad is irratic and the PCMCIA WiFi and Ethernet cards are not recognized. What's a good way to upgrade? (I can access the network from an external modem and from a dual-boot Windows 98 WiFi)
Whenever I try to open a file using gedit as a super user in fedora 14, i get the following error (gedit:2975): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported ** GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2270:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL) Aborted (core dumped) I've googled the problem, but nowhere comprehensive solution is said to be found.
I'm trying in the company where I work to persuade my co-partners to move slowly into the world of linux, but because everything are set up on Windows is quite difficult. Though I can install at least in one PC openSuse or Ubuntu (I prefer openSuse), but the problem is that I have to find a way to make the authentication to a Windows Domain, which is running Windows Server 2003.
How is this possible? Is this procedure painless or I have to read a lot of staffs in order to make it work? I would be obliged if you could give me some steps on how to do it. I can't stand windows any more
I am being asked to stand up a dedicated mail and web server in a network that runs Active Directory 2008 domain. All users are running Windows XP and or Windows 7. I have stood up two dedicated Linux servers (64-bit) for the requested tasks and everything is working perfect except for the fact that users now have three individual passwords:
1. Windows domain login credentials 2. Postfix / Dovecot (email) credentials are the Linux shell login (set to /bin/false) 3. Apache / Intranet access is used from a '.htpasswd' file
Does anyone recommend a way that I could somehow synchronize the users mail & web credentials with their Windows / Kerberos credentials.
Morning, just installed lubuntu but having problems connecting to the wireless network. I find the network alright, however, the network authentication windows pops-up only to disappear 0.1 seconds later not giving me time to enter the network-code.
I'm installing Squeeze on on a Dell Latitude D830 laptop with a Broadcom BCM4328 wireless network card, and I'm stuck on getting wireless internet to work. I have the 2.6.32-trunk-686-bigmem kernel. I run KDE and I have knetworkmanager installed to sort the network connections out. Unfortunately, knetworkmanager cannot find any wireless networks for eth2 (the wireless adapter). There is a wireless network, as other equipment can still connect to it.
I've installed the broadcom-sta drivers according to http://wiki.debian.org/wl. When I run iwconfig, I receive the following output: eth2 IEEEE 802.11abgn ESSID:"" Mode:Managed Frequency: 2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated Bit Rate: 14 Mb/s Tx-Power:off Retry min limit: 7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power ManagementMode: All packages received Link Quality=5/5 Signal level=0 dBm Noise Level=0 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 missed beacon:0
I was wondering if there's any way for a laptop to be both simultaneously connected to a wireless network, while at the same time acting as an ad-hoc network with local access to serve as a wifi connection for my mobile device, which would be ssh-ing into the laptop and using local resources.
I'm running Debian testing. I am running the iwlwifi driver and I have an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000 card. I have a fresh install of iwlwifi and network-manager. After sleep or after being shutdown, network manager cannot find my network's SSID. I have to wait ~5 minutes for it list my SSID. I dual boot this laptop with Windows 7, and on Windows, I connect to the internet instantly after boot. I did not have this issue before, the only thing I have changed was installing blueman and the necessary components. After I installed and uninstalled these bluetooth components, I have been getting these problems. Here are some outputs:
iwconfig: Code: Select alleth0¬† ¬† ¬† no wireless extensions.
I just installed 10.04, just migrating to linux. I can't see the network manager anywhere. I have the applet installed. I can't get the wifi adapter enabled. The chipset iwl8345 shows on the output when I run config. It seems to me that I need to get the NM up and that should doit. here is ishw:
I was having a discussion with someone who said that telnet, FTP, HTTP plain-text authentication in the local subnet is ok because it's a switched network. Also, that these protocols are not good over the net but in a local subnet they are just fine.
I know that someone can plug a hub in the network port and connect 2 (or more) PCs and see the packets. Also, heard about ettercap but haven't really delved into it. I know dsniff was written to prove the point that unencrypted protocols are bad. Would like to get opinion about unencrypted protocols over a switched networks.
A friend came by, and we tried to log her on to our wifi network when she was having trouble accessing it with her Windows (Dist #) machine.he wifi network itself was set up with macs, and had standard, open settings as far as I could tell - no password, NETGEAR title of the network.The Windows computer prompted us for a Security Pin, which we gave it from the router, and then all of the computers already on the network got dropped, while the Windows machine got set up onto the wifi, renamed the network with its own username, and automatically set up a password.I'm currently on the network using LAN, but can't figure out how to set up the network through Ubuntu back to the original settings for the rest of the people that need to access the network.Specs:I'm running Ubuntu 11.0,The Windows machine is unknown right now. I'll repost if that will help.The wifi router is a Netgear Wireless N 150 WSR 1000, with the serial, mac, and security pin numbers.
I would like to use a wireless network from Ubuntu. In the network drop-down menu I select a network (this is a University network I have an account there). Then I get a windows with the following fields:
I put there my user name and password and do not change default value and leave "Anonymous Identity"blank.
As a result of that I get "Authentication required by wireless network". How can I solve this problem?
I think it is important to notice that our system administrator tried to find some files (which are probably needed to be used as "CA Certificate"). He said that he does not know where this file is located on Ubuntu (he support only Windows). So, probably this is direction I need to go. I need to find this file. But may be I am wrong. May be something else needs to be done.
I have more than 150 Linux desktop computer in my office IT setup.
I want to configure LDAP centralize network authentication for all the desktop computer.
My requirement is below mentioned.
The LDAP server will only authenticate the desktop computer at the log-in time when the user start computer.
The home directory of all the user should be create in their desktop local computer not in the LDAP server.
And flexibility of user log-in for every desktop. (any user can log-in any computer with his/her username and password)and the home directory will create automatically in the local desktop computer automatically the moment any user will log-in to any computer in the network and the LDAP server will authenticate for desktop-network log-in in to the computer.
i recently got an msi wind U100x running on linux suse enterprise 10 sp1. i am totally new to linux and i believe that msi wind is not helping. i remember at some point seeing an icon in my toolbar to indicate available wifi networks, but it disappeared a few weeks ago, and i was never able to locate it again. out of dispair i reset the computer to factory settings. all i have is "no network connection" icon, and when you click on it you have both enable networking and enable wireless.
i read somewhere in help that i should have a knetworkmanager, but i can't find it anywhere. all i see in my control center is network card, and when i go in there, i go to 'user controlled with networkmanager' and i see 'micro-star international ethernet controller not configured'. before i reset to factory settings i used to have a wireless card as well.
in a word: i am totally lost and don't know where to start. any step by step to help me connect again?
I am trying to connect to a Windows 7 PC through Samba, and while samba can find the Windows 7 PC, it cannot access it, asking for a username and password instead. However, I can access the another Windows XP share perfectly fine.
Is it possible to monitor WiFi connections and identify who are connected through OpenLDAP? If so, how will authentication be possible? By the way, I'm open if OpenLDAP is inappropriate for such authentication purposes and scenario.
I want to share files from my opensuse 11.3 laptop and Windows XP desktop. It works well between Vista and XP. The domain name is WORKGROUP I checked everything: firewall Opensuse (open ports), firewall XP (disabled), XP workgroup name (WORKGROUP), opensuse Samba workgroup name (WORKGROUP) And my domain controller is set to "Not a DC" Still when I launch network in Dolphin I get "Unable to find any workgroups in your local network"
