I've just set up a webserver and forwarded ports 80, and 22, and I cannot access the inernet on that machine but I can connect via ssh and visit a page on the server when on a different network.When I put the router in dmz mode I can connect to the internet properly.
I managed to configure my W890i phone to get access to internet through an ubuntu-based computer. It's very easy to use the phone to give internet access to the computer, but the opposite is quite more tricky. For that I've done the following
----On the phone---
-Set the USB network option to "through computer", so that the phone uses the computer's internet connection and not the opposite.
-Decide and set "Shared Network" parameters: user, pasword and workgroup.
-In "conectivity-> internet connection" set "allow local network" to "yes"
----On Ubuntu 10.04---
-Install samba, samba-client, smbfs, smbclient, firestarter and dhcp3-server
-Configure Samba (System-> Administration-> Shared folders): same workgroup as in the phone, add new user (the phone), passwd this new user. In my case the user was called "w890i" and the password given was the same.
-Once the phone is connected to the computer through USB (then select "phone mode"), a new connection appears in NetworkManager: usb0.The aim is to create a shared network that gives internet access to this device. Edit the IPv4 parameters of this new connection, set them to Manual and give an IP adress (192.168.0.1) and a subnet mask (255.255.255.0); the rest of the fields are left empty.Connect this network.
-Set firestarter to use dhcp3: sudo ln -sf /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server /etc/init.d/dhcpd
-Launch firestarter and follow the wizard. Set "allow internet shared connection", choose the device for the primary internet access, and then the device for the shared network (usb0). Then change the settings for firestarter: activate DHCP for local network, set IP to the one we gave before (192.168.0.1).
-Open dhcp3-server config file sudo gedit /etc/default/dhcp3-server And set INTERFACES="usb0"
-Set the policies of firestarter: in incoming connections, allow connections from the IP adress given to the phone (192.168.0.1). Then add rules for the ports that need to be open for this connection. I opened HTTP, HTTPS, SMB, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, IMAPS, DHCP for all the connections in the local network.
-Apply policies and start the firewall.
After all this, the phone can access the internet through the computer. Two problems appeared:
1. I couldn't get access to https sites, like webmails. The phone gave a "communication error". But then I tried with Opera instead of the browser built in the phone's firmware, and I could finally get to https sites.
2. I couldn't retrieve mail, neither POP nor IMAP nor IMAPS. I thought it was a firmware problem again, and I tried out several mobile phone email clients written in java, but none of them worked.
So this is at the moment the problem. If I connect from the phone to the internet directly through 3G, the email clients work for all my accounts. I don't think it's a firewall problem, because the ports are opened for this connection
I connected my laptop running with Ubuntu 11 in the LAN but I couldn't access internet.But I could ping to the other computers connected in the LAN. I tried the same thing with windows 7 in the same laptop and I could access internet.
I have a linux box (fedora) with two ethernet cards eth1 and eth2. On eth1 I successfully configured a PPPOE internet connection. Such that from the server I can browse the internet. On eth2 I wired it to a wireless router essentially to provide the wireless cloud. On eth2 I also configured dhcp, such that the Linux box is both PPPOE and DHCP server.However my clients on the LAN cannot access the Internet.
On passing the routing command I get Destination Gateway Iface 196.44.x.y 0.0.0.0 ppp0 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 eth2 (my subnet) 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 ppp0.
The router (functioning as a wireless access point mainly) has a fixed IP address of 192.168.1.2 and eth2 has IP address 192.168.1.1. The dhcp file running on Linux has been set with option router (Gateway) 192.168.1.1. I cannot figure out how to correctly set the routing table such that my clients on wireless can access the internet cloud. I googled and googled but no solid solution. Any suggestions?
I have an old Debian distro (2.6) and it is completely stripped down, containing only the very bare minimum in software packages in order to function.I would now like to get internet access on this computer and I have installed a network card and connected it to an ethernet port however I am not sure where to go from there (i have little linux experience when it comes to installing/removing hardware and software).
Would I be right in saying that I need to install some kind of network/internet package in order to gain internet access? If so where would I get this from? and if so is this package likely to interfere with other packages I have installed? preferably I would like to leave everything else as it is. Frankly it only just works in its current state and i don't want a network package updating other packages and ruining all the dependencies and making my life hell :P
To clarify: I do not currently have internet access on the computer in question so I cannot use those fangled console command that download and install packages automatically. I also do not have a Debian CD, nor am I interested in downloading the 30discs worth of Debian distro as this internet connection is super slow
I'm having a problem with my wireless router and I don't understand the source of it. I have a DLink 604 router since couple of years and it work without any problem. It is attach to a cable modem. Recently I tried to connect a wireless router (DL 624) in the same setup. But it refuse to connect (etho) to the Internet even if Knemo tell that my computer is connect. I tried everything: disconnect the modem, the router, reboot, update my firmware, disable the wireless, disable DHCP...name it. So I thought my router was the problem, so I just purchase a new one (DIR-628) and guess...the same problem. And as soon I reconnect the DL-604 everything is fine. So there is something with wireless router that I don't understand. And I don't have to say that the Wireless connection doesn't work either. Any clue of what can be wrong. Bye the way I use Mepis 8.
I'm not really a newbee in Linux but I am a newbee in networking. I have both a Ubuntu laptop and a Gentoo desktop computer. I have just bought me the MBR1000 Cradlepoint router and it works great with my Verizon USB 760 modem plugged in it. I can now send and receive email on my Ubuntu laptop. I like it.My Gentoo desktop computer is just sitting there with no Internet access because my Verizon modem is no longer plugged into it but plugged into the router instead. Only my laptop now has Internet access. The laptop has an integrated wireless card built in the MB but my desktop has no such capability.
Is there a way (besides buying a wi-fi adapter) to get Internet access on my desktop computer through networking so that the router would give both computers Internet access at the same? My Gentoo desktop does have an ethernet adapter that perhaps I could useThe router has several LAN ports and one WAN port, both unused.
I am new to Linux, But, I installed it, all went well, but now, I can't access the Internet.So, I don't know what info you guys need, so just ask.Also, if it helps, I am using Ethernet (Well, I think it's Ethernet, it is a yellow cable with a rectangle end.
im using mandrake linux 2010.0 , and i connected my router cable (dlink) to the computer, and it detects without needing configuration to the 'eth0' and it shows me the ip the dns and gateway, everything ok, but then i go in firefox it says that i couldent connect because theres no internet connection,ive looked at the proxys the firewall, tried to uninstal the eth0, the ppp0 and install then again and still the same,does any one have an idea of what could be?
I have my desktop and laptop connected using an "Cross Over Cable" to transfer files. Each PC also has a wireless card which is used to connect to the internet. Today, the card in the desktop went bad, so I want to access the internet from my desktop through my laptop. Here is the specs running Ubuntu 9.10
I can not access the internet from within ubuntu. I have tried pidgin firefox and ping but I do not get a reply with any of them. I do however get full access using Virtual Box OSE running Windows server 2003 running inside the machine. This is not a one off as I often have trouble connecting to internet from inside ubuntu but usually disabling then enabling networking works.
I have CentOS5.5, it has full access to internet until I did something to it I couldn't figure out. This is not a cable issue since I could ping and ssh to other machines within my lan. Apache is also running fine, which is probably irrelevant. When I type traceroute cnn, it simply hangs, later saying [URL]: Temporary failure in name resolution Cannot handle "host" cmdline arg '[URL]' on position 1 (argc 1) This is a desktop version of CentOS5.5, when i do Administration - Network, it says eth0 is active and Primary and Secondary DNS are set correctly to my comcast DNS server at 68.94.15x.1
I have Suse 10.1 installed on my laptop. I do have an ip address, ifconfig says 192.168.1.4, but from my browser I cannot access the internet. I disabled the Firewall and have Security Settings set to Networked Workstation. My system can be accessed from an other machine via PuTTY... I would like to be able to access the internet from this machine, but don't know what goes wrong here...
I have an valid account,and I used pppoe-setup to set the dial correctly.After the configuration,I typed "ifup ppp0",nothing wrong happens(no news is good news?).Then I typed "pppoe-status",it said I've connected to the internet . I opened firefox,updated my system through yum ,they all said I haven't connected to the network!!!I've formated my harddisk and reinstall my system,but the problem is still.
I have installed fedora 11 64 bit on a new computer. I have no problems accessing the computers on my local network, but can not get past the gateway. The gateway is running windows XP with IP address 192.168.0.1 and is named "internet". When I boot the new computer in windows, there is no problem. Here is the output of some commands I saw in other posts with similar problems:
I installed Fedora 13 on my laptop today after deleting a badly screwed up Windows XP partition. Everything installed smoothly even my Broadcom drivers but I can't seem to figure out how to get Firefox to access the web with a URL.
I can ping Google, and can get to it in Firefox if I use the IP address from the ping, but going to [url] in Firefox will give me an error message about not being able to find the server at the web address. I was also able to update from the terminal with yum update just fine. I've tried searching Google for some answers, and maybe I just can't phrase my query right, but I found nothing that I could use to try and fix my problem.
I've attached a HardInfo report which I hope could be useful if you need to know what my hardware is (an HP Pavilion zv5000 laptop).
I've installed Fedora 13 on a Toshiba Satellite A40 laptop, and am trying to get the wired ethernet connection to work. Network Manager says it is connected, and the connection details (DHCP assigned IP, gateway, dns servers) all seem correct. However, I cannot browse the internet. Checking for updates fails also. I have tried pinging various sites and the results are inconsistent - sometimes it works, sometimes it times out with "unknown host". [URL]... I've searched around for similar issues and tried disbaling ipv6 both in Fedora and Firefox, but this doesn't help either.
After upgrading to F14 from F10, we seem to have access to the internet from our console, and no one is able to connect to server as well. We have static IP from comcast. And all the configurations on the eth0 looks fine. We are able to browse, if we set the server to dynamic ip. Also, we are able to connect another PC (laptop) with the static ip configuration, and browse fine. Read through many messages on this forum, cant get any clues,
I have a work network of about 20 boxes most of which are running Windows 7 and one of them is a file server using linux and another is Windows server 2003. Now the local IP is distributed by the router, and no regulation of internet access is done by any of the servers.What I need to do is restrict internet access to select domains, which would probably need DHCP through linux(I think, not really sure), and I need something simple like a 'blabla.conf' file with the allowed websites that I can edit. need to know how to regulate IP addresses through the linux box (all details if possible, I never tried to do that before), and how to restrict internet access also through linux.
I have a Compaq Presario R3000 with Ubuntu 9.10 32 bit that I just installed last night. I'm using a Zyxel G-102 Wireless card and Actiontec GT701WG wireless modem.
When I try to connect to the 'net, the network does show up and it connects strong (100%). It also shows multiple neighbors networks. It pings at 99% success (with over 900 sent as I write this) but when I open Firefox it can't connect, it just times out. I've used WEP security and have switched off security as well. I tried hooking up to the modem via USB and get the same result. It acts like a Firewall issue but there isn't one installed - at least that I can find and the Firewall in the modem is off. I ran FF in root with gksu firefox as suggested in another thread. I tried www.ubuntu.com and the header loaded but that was all. Then it timed out.
I'm new to Linux but have used Puppy Linux with this machine and card, etc. so I know it can/does work with Linux. I wanted a more refined distro and chose Ubuntu.
I have a usb modem : huawei e220.I am using ubuntu 9.10. I can't access the internet using it. I made a connection form the mobile broadband tab but every time it disconnects .Ubuntu identifies the modem but every time i try to make a connection it fails.
I have used other distros on and off in the past with no trouble, but for some reason I seem to have had this problem with several versions and flavours of Ubuntu on various systems. I've never solved this problem the previous times I've had it, just given up. But this time I actually need to get this working. I've recently upgraded my computer, so my old system has been relegated to HTPC duties in my lounge. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 and I'm having issues getting internet access with some programs, while others work fine.
Firefox and Evolution haven't been able to access the internet from the start.Empathy IM has no trouble connecting to my MSN and Facebook accounts.I had no trouble downloading and installing Google Chromium browser through Ubuntu Software Center, and have no trouble accessing the internet with Chromium.On the first boot after the install, Ubuntu automatically told me to update my nVidia drivers online, and did so without error.Update Manager detects updates, but fails to download them.
I successfully and flawlessly downloaded installed XBMC Media Center and some related skins and things through Synaptic, but XBMC cannot access the internet. However it can access shared files over my LAN, including Windows 7 shares.Ubuntu itself cannot access any files on my Windows 7 computer. It can access the work group and see my Win7 shares, but refuses to mount them. Strangely, XBMC can access these shares and stream media from them fine.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 and it appears to be working fine except for one problem: the internet access does not work at all. It is supposed to connect through a wired LAN and can talk to the router but when it comes to opening a webpage or pinging a server it doesn't work. Firefox says that it can't connect and the ping does nothing.
The computer can connect fine when booting Windows XP, but on Ubuntu it can't. Here are some details about the two OSes: XP: Connects to network and internet Ubuntu: Connects to network but can't mount the 'Windows Network' folder which is the only thing in the Network directory. Can't connect to internet. I'm on a Dell Dimension 2400.
I just Don't get it I did a lot of research before I downloaded ubuntu to put on a netbook because I wanted so badly to get away from windows all the raves were about ubuntu being the best I really like it except I have been so frustrated because I am not able to set up a internet connection. I am trying to use my blackberry 8320 from tmobile for this with the unlimited internet and blackberry package the net book is an acer aspire AOA 110. This is what I have tried and I am getting so frustrated.
1. paired blackberry and laptop with bluetooth both recognize each other but laptop only recognizes the blackberry as an A/V remote control so it wont even let me set up DUN it gives me 3 serial port options to connect to Dialup Networking (which the connection fails on every time) blackberry desktop servive and blackberry bypass service which it will let me connect to and it tells me they are connected but when you go to the browser and try a website it wont open a web page.2. I have obtained all the information from tmobile and tried to use the network manager to set up a mobile broadband connection and I know I have put in the info right but the connection never shows up in the connection manager so I dont know what to do from here with this either.
3. I have downloaded berry for all and have all the necessary things installed then I can get it to recognize the phone but it wont connect either (I read that the program needs to be in root and I dont know how to get it there because I am so new to this linux thing I really want to learn this and this is why I am so frustrated but I need to have an internet connection.Oh and the wireless works flawless if I take the netbook any where there is WIFI it lets me on in two seconds so I at least know I can get on the internet that way but I do not always have acess to it so would really like to get this figured out.
can no longer access the internet,Deleted Network Manager thinking I could reinstall it and it would be back to its default settings. Had not been able to get online for days. Offcourse now I can't get Network manager back as I have to be online for that. I think I had stuffed up the proxy settings but can't work out how to get that back to default either. What do I do now and how do I do it?
I am using Ubuntu 10.04. My problem is that I am unable to access my internet using Ubuntu. My internet is running fine on Windows 7 installed on same system. I am a bit unfamiliar with Linux. I tried to configure my network settings but it didn't help. I have my system connected to my dsl router via LAN.
