Networking :: Creating Simultaneous Network Connections To A VPN And Local Area Network?
May 31, 2010
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.
One question that weight a lot of points was about ethernet... the professor asked why ethernet is used only in local area network? resuming i wrote that ethernet is used only in LAN because it is shared and so for big network there could be a lot problem in using the shared channel.. for istance using protocol such as CSMA/CD, if a big network has a lot of hosts, they could wait a long time before sending...is it right or am I wrong?
I just installed open Suse 11.3, and I cannot SSH my school. Upon further investigation I could not even ping any machines outside my local area network. Ironically I could nmap machines outside my local area network.
I have a computer, the one I am on now, with Ubuntu 10.10, it should be completely updated... and I can network with other computers, I can access Windows XP and 7 shared locations on other computers, and I can also get Ubuntu on other computers to access this computer's shared files.What I can't do, however, is share my hardrives that are on this computer, I have tried sharing them in /media/ and etc, but it is not working, apparently you have to mount them in some mystical way.
Another problem is getting Windows machines to access Ubuntu computers on the network - which I believe is a Windows problem, so I can figure that out some other time, but importantly, I want to be able to share my hardrives over the network.
If someone can give me some instructions to mounting and sharing hardrives(internal), and even my DVD-Drives, and portable USB devices, would also be fantastic - since, in Windows you can just right click, "share", and it's done.. It is a very useful thing to have, and I don't want to use Windows on this computer anymore, but I have no choice, really, if I can't share my storage to the other computers.
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...
At home I have two computers running linux connected to the same router. I would like to be able to connect them so that I can move files between them and execute simple commands. What is the most simple way to access a prompt on the other computer or to mount a partition currently used by the other computer?Using the www it is possible to connect two computers using ssh, but it should be easier to do this over the LAN, right? I have been googling a lot but not found anything.
I am new to networking and trying to setup my own local area network using virtual box machines. I have installed BIND 9.7.3 using yum in Fedora (dns server) and created all necessary .conf and zone fil es. I am successfully able to resolve domain names on this host machine (dns server). for example dig @dns.domain.lan client1.domain.lan correctly resolves domain name.
Just moved over from the dark side (Vista) and was wondering how I can get two (or more) PPTP VPNs connected at any given time. I usually attempt to multi task (although swambo says I can't) and work on various clients' servers at the same time. The GUI network manager thingy only allows me to dial up one VPN at a time. Is there perhaps a cli version and if so where would I go to get a tutorial on this please. BTW, running F11 32bit. Tried Debian and Ubuntu as well and found F11 to blindingly fast on my DualCore Toshiba laptop. Pity I can't see the additional 1Gb of RAM though. (4Gb in total).
I really hope someone could help me with this problem. I've been stuck on this for a month.I am using the sftp command to upload files using a bash script.The problem is that it is extremely slow to do it this way. as many of you would know if you have shared server somewhere. I would use scp if remote server supported it, but it doesn't.
Anyway, If any of you have ever used FileZilla, in the Settings, if you go to "Transfers" there is a place where you can set the number of "maximum simultaneous transfers". This feature works wonders with SFTP (and FTP too). It really speeds things up. How do I accomplish this same thing with the sftp command... because I don't want to use a GUI. I don't even mind using FileZilla through the command line if possible... but it does not seem to be possible. I've been stuck on this for a month!!! I've searched everywhere and tried a lot of things with no avail...
i have successfully done the setup of postfix and dovecot on this link [URL]I run Cent OS on top of window 7 via VM Player,i want to access mailbox from windows 7 using email client like Thunderbird and Outlook. What setting i need to do in my mail server ?
I have two networks. One of them is wired, the other is wireless. The wired has an internet connection and a few other computers connected to it. The wireless network has a few hosts connected to it too, but it has no internet connection. What I've been trying, fruitlessly, to do, is make all connections that are bound to the internet, or my wired network, be routed that way, and all the connections to the hosts of the wireless network go that way.
Here's the setup..
192.168.1.0/24 Gateway = 192.168.1.1
Route internet through here
192.168.2.0/24 Gateway = 192.168.2.1
If my computer sends a packet to the internet, it should be routed through 192.168.1.1 If I send a packet to one of the local hosts of the wireless network, it should be routed through 192.168.2.1. Here's the routing table I've set up(This is one of many configurations I've tried)
$ ip route show 192.168.2.1 dev wlan0 scope link 192.168.2.0/24 via 192.168.2.1 dev wlan0 src 192.168.2.4
With this, and everything else, I get destination host unreachable when pinging. The strange thing is that, if I unplug my eth cable, reboot and connect to the wireless network, everything is fine and I can access the router and the others. I'm trying to improve my networking skills, as I've had this of setting up a small linux box as a router for quite some time, for the fun of it, but I need to get routing under control before I go ruin my network.
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:
I'd like a way to see all of the devices on my local network and what their local IP address is. I recall that I used wireshark to troubleshoot a similar problem a while back, but it doesn't seem to have a way to see all of the devices- only the traffic. (I'd like to do this without having to physically interface with my router if possible, and I am in an encrypted network if that matters)
I have installed a web server on my local network. Everything is well configured and web pages are shown correctly from Internet (outside the local network) using the domain or the public IP.The issue is if I try to see that web pages (using the domain or the public IP) from inside the local network. In that case the router config page (192.168.1.1) is shown instead of the web pages.From inside the local network I'm only able to see the web pages using the internal IP address (192.168.1.XX).
On about 90% of bootups I find that network manager has disappeared from the notification area to be replaced by a random duplicate of one of the other icons (at random). If I remove the notification area and add it again all is fine.
am new to ubuntu, have some issues with connecting to wireless. I have downloaded my wireless drivers and installed, I can see that my wireless is on from the indicatior, but I cant connect to any wireless access point because I cant locate network manager on the notification area. Am using Dell inspiron 1501.The second issue I have is connecting as root. after I installed ubuntu, it created a user for me which I specified during installation, but most things am doing requires root privilleges. I cant connect as root because I dont know root password, I have tried changing the password but it doesn't go. Pls guys help me sort out these issues.
im just getting the hang of ubuntu 9.10, and then all of a sudden 10.04 comes over and screws everything up with the upgrade. i did the upgrade, and now the network manager wont show up in notification areas. any clue as to why? help is greatly appreciated. also, my machine does register that the drivers for wireless card is installed, and when i run lshw -c net command with sudo priveleges, it says it can detect networks, so im confused as hell.
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.
I first tried an upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 and lost Internet Access, so i re-loaded 11.4 from scratch on clean partitions.
I am connected to my wireless WPA2/PSK connection, have an IP, am able to see the network.
I turned off and disabled the SUSE firewall.
I tried setting Firefox proxy settings to auto and to none, i dont use proxy.
I am currently posting this through an SSH connection to my 11.1 server from the new install of 11.4 on a Dell latitude D600 laptop (not using the on-board Broadcomm that is an issue for a later date).
I had a google of this but can't find anything useful. I use networkmanager to configure my wireless card. Currently this only works when I'm logged in to KDE. If I log out the system loses the network connection. Is there a way to make it persistent using NetworkManager?
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)?
I've got an Ubuntu server hosting our websites and other various things here in our own home. We recently switched to a router that doesn't support loopback (abomination), so I've set up hosts files on our computers so we can access our own sites when on our home LAN.
However, we often take our laptops as we travel about, and I'm guessing due to the hosts files when we try to access our sites, it'll look on whatever local network we're connected to for our server, which won't work, obviously.
Is there a way to set up something like a hosts file that'll only try to look up the local IP of the server when we're on a specific network (our home one), or have one that tries to look for the local IP first, then proceeds to try and resolve the domain name and use the external IP if the local IP doesn't work?
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'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.
I just finished a fresh install of 11.3 on an HP 7900 small form factor and have no network connectivity. In Network Tools eth0 shows the state as inactive. Network Connections didn't have a connection, so after letting it create one there is no MAC address. I copied and pasted the MAC address from Network Connections eth0, set up a static address with default gateway, netmask, etc. all set appropriately and rebooted. Still no joy.
I want this to get an address via DHCP, I just set up a static address for testing.11.2 sensed the NIC without issue, but 11.3 doesn't seem to like me right now.I wanted to get this deployed on 40 machines today. Oh well.
