Networking :: Configure The Network Interface Under The Owner (not ROOT)?
Apr 20, 2011
i have ubuntu 10.10 and i want to configure my interface eth0 with the commande line with owner (not the Root)$ifconfig : this commande works and listed all interface with some description -> thats goodbut when i use some parametre like @ip and netmask
today I tried to configure a network route to a host for testing my network interface. Code: route add 192.168.1.15 eth0 As I have to eth interfaces and both interface got their IP from DHCP (192.168.1.11 and 192.168.1.12) and are in the same subnet, I shut the other interface down:
Code: ifconfig eth1 down Then I tried to test the interface by doing a ping to 192.168.1.15. Problem: When I unplug the cable from eth0 (and eth1 is still plugged) the ping still works. Somehow my linux (it's debian) powers up again eth0 and pings over this port.
How can I stop my linux doing this. I just want to have the route added only on the one interface - not the other. Is it maybe some case of a default-gateway?
I want to use a static ip address on my wireless network but when I click configure in network tools it keeps telling me The interface does not exist and to Check that it is correctly typed and that it is correctly supported by your system
I have a work desktop plugged into the work network. As I opened my firewall settings I noticed that it is turned off. My question is how should I configure it? I saw that the interface isn't assigned to any zone... I should assign to internal zone and open some port that I need in order to work? There are some guidelines for configuring the firewall?
I used the network manager to configure my eth0 interface.It is working fine. I have found the nameserver entries in /etc/resolv.conf files. But the /etc/network/interfaces file does not carry the ip, netmask, gateway,network and broadcast entries. It only has a entry for the lo interface. where are the settings for eth0 as done by the network manager, stored in case of ubuntu?
I am using two ethernet interface, in fact one ethernet interface eth0 and other is USB netconenct ppp0. I am using fedora 12 - 32 bit. I can individually use both connections. say if I disconnect ppp0 (wvdialer), everything works fine and same in other case. Now my problem is I want torrent client to use ppp0 and all other applications like firefox and other use eth0. So that I can use both interfaces effectively.
I changed in ktorrent client's configuration, and change interface to ppp0 from all interface, but it didnt work. When my eth0 id down I can ping using ppp0, but when eth0 is also up, I can ping via eth0 but not via ppp0 (ping xxxxx -I interface). What is I am doing wrong? How can I configure torrent client to use ppp0?
Ive been struggling to configure a wireless interface on Fedora 9I need to configure wlan0 command line only with NO display managerIve tried setting up /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 with the right information, doing dhcpbut no ip is retrieved. Checking the dhcp server logs on the DHCP server - no request is received.The link light on the wireless nic is not on either. iwconfig shows it has an Access point associated and an ESSID but im not getting back any IP.There seems to be very little documenta on how to set up wireless nics command line only on Fedora
When I installed Ubuntu, I was asked to enter a user name and password. I chose one that would be a sort of "administrator alias" and gave it a strong password. This is my "su" name and password. That works fine for most things, such as installing software, etc.. Every so often, however, something comes up that can only be accessed by "root" and that is not me, even logged in with my "administrator alias" and password. This happened when I inserted a USB flash drive and tried to copy some files to it that I wished to transfer from my desktop my laptop. The only way I could do this was to format the flash drive. and then add my files to it.
This morning I inserted the flash drive and tried to add another file to it, using "copy" and "paste". Again I got "permission denied" and the owner of the flash drive, seen as "usb0", was again "root", and I could not change its permissions, because I am not "root". It also says the device is not listed in etc/fstab. I have read the Ubuntu paper on mounting USB drives, but I'm not sure that applies here. The drive seems to be mounted, but with the wrong owner.
This problem has also occurred with some software when I tried installing it. I usually give up and don't install it. This flash drive problem, however, is driving me crazy. I need to transfer those files. Is there something I'm missing? Despite installing and upgrading Ubuntu on 2 machines, I'm still pretty much a newbie, and if it involves using the terminal, I need step-by-step instructions,
I am totally new to Linux and have just installed ubuntu 10.10. After configuring the network interface via dhcp I started getting these messages that come in so frequently I can't configure anything else.
Why I am getting this messages and more importantly how do I get rid of them.
I use a mounted NTFS filesystem as my main data storage drive. I then symlink all my Windows folders (Documents, Pictures, etc.) into my Ubuntu home folder. Works great, because it means I can share files between Windows and Ubuntu hassle-free. However, any file created on or saved to the NTFS partition automatically has its owner set as "root". Is it possible to set the default owner to me (aaron)? Or does it have to be root on NTFS?
I used to use the root account for everything for more than a year then I moved to a user account for security reasons but almost all files had root as owner so I could not go 5 minutes without having to change to root and then change the owner of a file to my username to make it usable. I got fed up with this so I just changed the owner of every file on the system to my username instead of root.
command chown -R myusername * in the base directory /
Everything was fine until I restarted and the login screen became non functional and I got 2 error messages related to xsession and gnome errors. I think this is because the login screen might have its own user account and it cant access the files for the login process because it is owned by myusername. So my question is what is the user-name of the login account and what folders/files need to have their owner changed so the login process can work? I'm on 10.04 lucid.
After something happened in SUSE Studio, in any appliances I build the owner of /home/tux/Desktop is root which makes impossible to create desktop icons. This happens even in those appliances which previously were build normally with normal ownership (i.e. tux as owner of /home/tux/Desktop). Something changed abruptly and in all these appliances the ownership of this folder changed.
According to a couple of different places, it's not possible for me to put a line in /etc/fstab to mount one of my partitions with owner and group not root; instead, I have to mount it in /etc/fstab, then chown & chgrp to my user. That seems ridiculously tedious and silly... is it true? I'm sure a short script could be written to get around it, but it seems obtuse for Linux not to allow that to be set in /etc/fstab.
I have a flash drive that I use to sync my work- and home-computers. Rsync has occasional issues syncing between FAT32 (which I use on my flash drive b/c it's universal) and EXT3.
I decided to create an EXT3 partition on the flash drive in an attempt to alleviate the rsync woes. My problem is that when I create the partition using GParted, Ubuntu auto-mounts it with Root as the owner. I had GParted check the drive, and it found no errors to repair.
One other weird thing is that the EXT3 partition shows 84.7MB being used immediately after creating the new partition.
The FAT32 partition mounts fine, is read/write, and only shows 4KB used after the new partition scheme.
I tried doing new partitions a number of times, with EXT2, EXT3, and EXT4 just to see if that mysteriously made a difference. Each time that partition would mount w/ Root as owner.
I'm having all sorts of problems connecting an access point to my computer, but here is one piece that I hope will get me going, if I can get it solved.My computer has two network interfaces, eth0 and eth1. eth1 connects to the cable modem and thence the world, and works fine. eth0 is supposed to connect to the access point over a private network. Here is the output from route with my IP address blotted out:
Code: Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
I have a server that is on both a standard network and a virtual network, as follows: server1 attached to standard network server1 acting as Dom0 with two linux DomU guests (under Xen) I only have one network card. How do I configure server1 to have a different hostname on the standard network than on the virtual network? Here are the relevant network configuration files for server1:
On the server I can see the owner as vampird and the correct group, VampirD Microsoft Windows is like air conditioning Stops working when you open a window. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.12 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with SUSE - [URL] iEYEARECAAYFAkxHNfAACgkQJQ+0ABWtaVlcagCdEo5kiwydUTmZ+dkD4R4jholx bi4AoO6T2OzHealqsQ+9Z42jJ7rYJ6uL =YKm8 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
I have two simultaneous active mobile connections through my two mobile phones and USB data cables. Yet I can only send/receive with one connection.Each of the phone modems have a node in /dev, namely ttyACM0 and ttyACM0. So the modems are detected correctly.After setting up two dial-up connections with the two modems I have two ip's. Ifconfig-a confirms this:
ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol inet addr:10.10.219.60 P-t-P:10.6.6.6 Mask:255.255.255.255 UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
I would like be able to access packets coming off the network with the hopes of coding a primitive packet sniffer for learning purposes. I would also like to be able to piece together my own packets and send them out on my network. Eventually, I would also like to write a simple firewall so I want the capability to drop packets as well as let them pass. I assume I will have to access the kernel with some system calls to do this, any one have any information or resources that could help me on this project?
I'm a newbie on Linux and trying to find my feet so please be kind.I have installed vmware on my XP laptop and have installed fedora core 9. Network setting on the VMware is set to bridged. My interface eth0 which is using the wireless does not start on boot. I have to run ifup ifcfg-eth0.The file ifcfg-eth0 had onboot=yes and NM=no, so i changed it so that the NM=yes.However this does not resolve the problem at all. I have put the file back to its original configuration and I have disabled network manager and have had no luck
I installed Fedora 12 on an Eee PC 1001HA. This laptop has a Ralink RT3070 wireless chipset, for which the driver is not yet in the kernel (still in staging I believe). However I downloaded the driver, compiled it, and installed it. AFAICT, it works fine.
One small obstacle remains: I am uable to get the network interface to come up automatically; I have to run # ifconfig ra0 up. Because of this NetworkManager never sees the wireless interface, making connecting to WAPs a chore.
I created a ifconf-ra0 file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts, and it includes the line ONBOOT=yes, but this doesn't do the trick.
