Networking :: File Transfer Using Ethernet Cross Over Cable?
Apr 18, 2010
I am running Ubuntu Linux 9.10 on my laptop and desktop. I would like to transfer files from one to the other using an Ethernet Cross Over Cable. Is there software already installed in the bundle, that would allow me to setup network drives for each machine when the cable is connected. Also how would I setup the configuration.
how I could file share, or make the whole Hard Drive (HDD) accessible to another computer. The two other computers I have are a Toshiba Laptop with Ethernet and USB, and a iMac Intel with Firewire, USB, and Ethernet. Putting these to use along with:
Three Ethernet Cables Two Printer Peripheral USB Cables The Two Computers A 2GB Flash Drive
That is all I can think of right now. I do not want to use CDs. In a way, I would like to do a network boot. So, how do I get the whole HDD visible to the others computers (either/both) and be able to write to it? I want to put Xubuntu on it, and earse the rest of the Hard Drive. The computers getting this are the iMac G3s and the eMac G4. The eMac has 256MB RAM, 40GB HDD, and a 700MHz processor. Two iMacs have 128MB RAM, 40GB HDD, and a 600MHz Processor. The other iMac is the same as the rest but has a 500MHz processor.
Using ubuntu 10.10 (pinguy OS) i connected an ethernet cable from my girl's macbook pro to her lenovo ideapad s10-3t to transfer some DS9 episodes onto it. new enough to linux to have not been able to figure out how to access the files on the mac, so i disconnected the ethernet, and the wireless hasn't worked since. tried everything i know, and googling for a while (as well as searching again on this forum) to no avail.
Just before linking the 2 computers via ethernet, the wireless worked fine on the ideapad, always had; but not so after the ethernet connection that did nothing other than apparently kill the wireless. an "lshw -C network" command tells me i have a BCM4313 wireless card, and *-network UNCLAIMED. also, if i launch "install additional drivers", i see that the proprietary driver is not active.
How could merely plugging in an ethernet cable that happened to be conncected to a MBP running OSX.6 do that? and will that happen again? i thought linux was supposed to play real nice with other OS's, so why did a simple file transfer kill my wireless connectivity? i have no access to internet via ethernet cable, so i cannot just download the driver i need now. shouldn't it still be in the computer still? somewhere? is there a simple solution to this, or has the wireless driver been wiped out by plugging in the ethernet? is this a bug that should be reported?
I've got a Laptop with wireless broadband connection which needs to be connected to a desktop machine so that the internet connection could be shared. Both has got Ubuntu 9.1. I don't have a router or a switch. I just need direct connection with a cross over cable.
I have two laptops running fedora 9 (32-bit and 64-bit on each system) and I want to connect them together for sharing files. For this I have a cross cable i.e.,a simple cable that is usually used to connect a PC with ADSL modem.
I recently discovered TeamViewer, a free windows application to let me remote control between 2 windows installs, and most importantly, FILE transfer easily between the two. I'm trying to find a similar solution for ubuntu, so if need be, I can xfer between windows and ubuntu. I have done cross-OS remote desktoping previously, using tightVNC on windows to control Ubuntu and it worked pretty well, but I could not do file transfers, and that is what my major premise is.
viable solutions that will allow me to do Ubuntu-->Ubuntu and Windows<--> Ubuntu Transfers? I should explain that I have a dual boot of Win 7/Ubuntu Karmic on Laptop, and Win XP/Karmic on Desktop.
I am trying to run a cable from my wireless router over a 75ft cat6 cable to my bedroom. I don't get any connection on my end and I don't have any other ideas. I did setup a m0n0wall box just to try. I got the network led on my server to light up in my room but nothing more than that. Lastly, I tried adding a 5 port switch in my room and then connecting that to my server and nada.
I am using Ubuntu Server version 10.4, and am trying to connect to the internet via an ethernet cable. This may and probably is incredibly simple, however, I could not find anything that pertains to it.
How can I find a MAC of hardware attached via ethernet cable? I have been working nicely with an industrial scanner that is controlled by a Linux PC via an ethernet cable, but the hard drive has died I need to get it working again. The problem is that the main PCB has a Realtek RTL8019AS ethernet controller chip: [URL] which I believe is used in the most basic way possible, applied straight off-the-shelf and unconfigured. To utilise the chip ARP commands are used to assign an IP address to the chips MAC address e.g. something like:
arp -s 192.168.2.5 00-05-a4-00-a8-f8
Unfortunately the actual MAC address was lost along with the HD Th only thing I could have a reasonable guess at is that the chip will have a default subnet of 255.255.0.0 or 255.255.255.0
How can I find out programmatically if a cable has been removed from an ethernet connector where the interface is "up" ??? Without using ping of course. Sidebar question, if I have two interfaces on the subnet how can I force a ping out a specific interface? Say, I have 192.168.5.14 and 192.168.5.13 and I want to throw a ping out *.13 and not *.14 ..
I'm a new user of Ubuntu, so i'm not that familiar with this OS. My wireless network is detected but when I'm entering my 128 bits WEP key, it doesn't connect at all. I have no clue where to start troubleshooting.
Here's some of my specs if that's of any help: Computer is a Sony Vaio laptop model VGN-SZ370P My wireless card is from Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) USB UHCI Controller
The ethernet cable connection used to work before, but I fooled around with some commands and now seems to be disabled...
OS: Maverick Ethernet driver: tested with sky2 an sk98lin This has been driving me crazy for the last few months: if I unplug ethernet cable while my laptop is on reconnecting it sometimes does not bring the connection back.
And once ethernet is gone nothing that I try seems to consistently bring it back. Rebooting, disabling/enabling the driver, disabling/enabling NIC in BIOS, changing driver from sky2 to sk98lin, deleting connection from Network Manager, resetting the router - nothing helps. It seems to come back randomly a few weeks later. Once I used live Ubuntu on a USB stick and ethernet came back not only on a live distro but then when I rebooted also on my main OS. But when I tried that trick next time ethernet was missing in the live distro as well.
Also once I was able to revive ethernet but compiling sk98lin driver, blacklisting sky2 and rebooting. Of course next time doing the same routine did not help. The thing is - ethernet works fine with either sky2 or sk98lin and I can unplug the cable and plug it back in most of the time without any issues. But then every so often - bang and I'm stuck with only wireless until ethernet suddenly starts working again.
I've recently bought a recycled computer for my office. The plan was to get an old cheap computer and use it to write LaTex documents but nothing else. However, I can't seem to get the thing to connect to the internet. I'm on a University network which has a funny setup but I don't think that's the problem.So here's the deal. I have tried this with 9.04, 10.04 and 10.10 and it hasn't worked. The computer recognizes the ethernet cable. If I issue the command "sudo mii-tool eth0" and get back "eth0: negotiated 100baseTx-FD, link ok". However, click on the networking logo on the top right, and click auto eth0, it tries to connect for about 30 seconds, then gives up. Unfortunately I'm pretty clueless when it comes to networking so I have no idea what to do to try to fix this.
Acer 5250-BZ475 laptop, fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04. Boots up beautifully as long as an ethernet cable is plugged in. Otherwise, I get to the login screen and have just enough time to start typing in my password before the entire system hangs hard - no mouse, no keyboard, can't even get to a terminal, nothing. Have to hard power off the machine.
It seems to be a problem with the wireless card trying to initialize, but there doesn't seem to be a bios option to disable wireless on this laptop, so I'm a bit at a loss as to how to fix this problem. By the way, wireless works fine if I boot up with a cable connected - I can see all the wireless access points in my area no problem. I just can't boot without a wired connection, which makes my laptop more or less useless when I'm away from home with it.
We have a Linux box which acts a a file server. Currently, files and directories are exported using NFS.At the moment, we are a bit concern on its data transfer performance. FYI, we are using a embedded Gigabit Ethernet port on the file server. We ran a few simple write tests between NFS client (also utilizes GigE port) and the NFS server. In these tests, both NFS server and client are both connected directly to each other with a Cat5E cable. Unfortunately, the write/transfer speed results are not as per our expectation. It scores roughly about 11-12MByte/s, where as theoretically Gigabit Ethernet transfer rate is able to reach up to approximately 120MByte/s.I wouldn't expect to reach the theoretical max transfer rate (it would be great if we can , but I would appreciate if you guys can share with us in terms of the following :
1) What's the practical max data transfer rate which you guys managed to observe in a normal Gigabit based connection? What about jumbo frames configuration?
2) Is there any additional tuning/configuration we need to do within the OS to reach those practical max data transfer rate figure?
3) Does PCI-e / system bus plays a role in achieving this speed? For example, we are using the embedded GigE port and we heard some people says embedded ports are actually sharing the system bus and resources with other devices, which might adds into performance issue. Correct me if I'm wrong.
4) Does converting to Cat6 cabling will guarantee an increase in the data transfer performance?
5) In the future (once we are clear on how much single GigE transfer rate we can go) , we are looking into doing bonding since that the NFS server's shared directory/volume read-write speed is way much higher (i.e 400-600MByte/s). Will bonding allow us to achieve higher NFS read/write speed? What are the bonding modes best used for this purposes? Appreciate if anybody who has experience in doing bonding for NFS can share their experience.
I have two desktop one have rhel 5 and other window xp i am trying to connect both with cross over cable.IP for windows system is 192.168.0.1 IP for linux system is 192.168.0.2 I am able to ping my linux system from windows but unable to ping windows system from linux.
I have 2 10.04 machines connected through a switch, both with gigabit on board ethernet. Both machines show 1000 Mb/s connections.When I transfer large files (gig plus up to multi-gig) the maximum I get according to ftp 11472 kB/s.I did rough computer school math in my head and that seems low but I'll admit I know very little about network transfer rates.My question is what transfer rates should I expect to get between the 2?
Yesterday it was everything OK in my PC with Ubutnu 10.4 and WinXP. Suddenly Ethernet stop working at Ubuntu, all what happened in between was a change of user, I trying changin user again, restarting PC, switching the cable (I have two ethernet boards) and nothing happened. It is like a virus attack, I don't know. I am writing now from WinXP in the same computer. Ubuntu says that I have no cable connected, but as you can see I am connected in Windows
I just purchased an HP Pavilion p6710f desktop with an ralink wireless n card, and 11.04 won't recognize it in 'Additional Drivers'. I can't get it to an ethernet cable, and then check for more additional drivers (did this on an old laptop), so what can I do??
i am trying to transfer a file from my live linux machine to remote linux machine it is a mail server and single .tar.gz file include all data. but during transfer it stop working. how can i work and trouble shooot the matter. is there any better way then this to transfer huge 14 gb file over network,vpn,wan transfer. the speed is 1mbps,rest of the file it copy it.
