Networking :: Network Sharing Work After Disable Dnsmasq?
Mar 17, 2010
I'm sharing the wireless signal (wlan0) on my fedora 12 machine.However, when the computer starts up I have to execute:> service dnsmasq stopOnly after this, will the computer share the internet signal (through eth0).Why is that? Should I uninstall dnsmasq?I've already removed it from chkconfig:> chkconfig --del dnsmasq
how to change the IP range provided by default by Network Manager / dnsmasq from 10.42.43.-- to something else?
I have setup a working network using a Bell wireless modem (Canada) and Network Manager in 8.10, 9.04, and 9.10.to do Internet connection sharing. In 8.10 the only way I could get it to work was with WICD and KPPP, many hours spent on this one. I got it to work in 9.04 and 9.10 using network manager, but certainly not out-of-the-box. If someone would like some tips on how I did it, in each case, let me know.
My current challenge is trying to set the dhcp range of dnsmasq (which I am 99% sure is what is handing out addresses) from th 10.42.43.-- address range to a 192.168.0.-- range.
I HAVE edited /etc/dnsmasq.conf and can get the edits to this file to break the setup (dnsmasq will not start) but have not been able to get it to change the IP address range.
It seems that either this file is ignored, or overridden by some other process. I have looked at the very good post at [URL] about dnsmasq but this does not do the trick.
By the way, the way I can get this to work is to start NM, establish my cellular internet connection, then kill dnsmasq then establish my ICS network (on eth0). If I don't kill dnsmasq, then it does bring up the connection, but it then shuts down in a matter of seconds. It is all very manageable using a launcher (kdesudo pkill dnsmasq) on the task bar, but not all that elegant.
the IP range and where this is provided to Network Manager or the network itself is my real question now.
I installed dnsmasq to speed up dns querry for my network. i didn't really change any thing in my dnsmasq.conf file. i only just put my upstream dns addresses in resolv.conf. i have dchp running and configured to issue the ip address of the system running dnsmasq as dns ip to the dhcp clients. But i have noticed that if i do ipconfig /all on my windows clients, instead of the dnsmasq server ip showing, i still see the dns ip of my upstream provider. by this, iam assuming that the client are not using the cache even though the service is running on the server.
How does network file sharing work in Ubuntu? Is it only enabled for the Public folder? Or does it vary by folder permission settings, specifically in that folder's 'Properties' and allow others access the folders?
I'm asking because someone at my work may have had a complete breach of their personal files in the /home/ directory from their folder permission settings. I want to know if regardless of everyone having access permission to the folder, if they need to drag it to the Public folder for it to be network shared.
ubuntu: 10.04dnsmasq: 2.52-1ubuntu0.1I've installed dnsmasq and it is performing DNS duties correctly. I'd like to limit access to the dnsmasq service to a specific address or interface. I've tried adding variations and combinations of the following to /etc/dnsmasq.conf:
I am trying to get more control of my small office network. It consists of several windows workstations, a debian box, and a ZyXEL P-660HW-D1 router, Right now, the only way to reach the debian box from other computers is to type in its ip address.
The goal is to be able to reach the box by just typing ://debianBox into my browser, though ideally I want to set it up to be something like ://debianBox.officenet, and to also reach other people's computers by typing ://mattBox.officenet and ://fredBox.officenet
The Zyxel router has a LAN page with a DHCP Setup tab with fields setup like so In the past I was able to mange this using an Orange router, but now I have to use the ZyXel.
So I installed dnsmasq on the debianBox, but I do not know how to configure it to get the results. I want and still get internet fromthe Zyxel router.
In the etc/hosts file of the debian box I added 192.168.69.15 debianBox, and for testing on my windows machine I set the primary dns entry of the Ip4 connection to 192.168.69.15 as well, but typing ://debianBox in my browser still gives me not found.
My upstream DNS server is a bit slow, so I've installed the dnsmasq cacher locally. I have the service starting on runlevels 2, 3, and 5. But I can tell by Firefox's behavior that dnsmasq does not work upon boot. Firefox lets its own DNS cache expire after 60 seconds. When I do my second Google search five minutes after my first, the second DNS lookup for www.google.com is just as slow as the first.If I manually restart the dnsmasq service, I get the fast name resolutions I expect.
I have a Fedora 11 box with an HP Laserjet 1000 (connected by USB) a Windows XP machineBoth are on the same network. I am desperately trying to share the printer to the Windows XP box using IPP. The Windows XP machine recognizes the printer queue, configures correctly and then ... nothing. It simply does not print ! Printer sharing worked perfectly in Fedora 10, with CUPS 1.3, but something seems to have broken.I used the guide available at this adress and tried all mentionned possibilites
Ok Ive tried soooo many tutorials and been through sooo many forums but I cant get my file sharing to work from any computer. Ive got a - Ubuntu 10.04(64bit) desktop to use as a home web/file server, wired.(BEN-SERVER)- Vista(32bit) laptop, wireless.(BEN-LAPTOP)- Windows 7(64bit) desktop, wireless.(BEN-LAVIE)- EchoLife HG520s ADSL2 wireless modem.
At the moment...In Ubuntu network browswer it only displays BEN-LAPTOP.But trying to browse BEN-LAPTOP I get "Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server".Vista only displays BEN-LAVIE and browsing gives me "Windows cannot access \BEN-LAVIE"And Windows 7 doesn't display any.Previously I was able to share between Windows 7 and Ubuntu but I don't know what I did but it stopped working. I have since reinstalled Ubuntu and tried again from scratch but no luck
I have a DNS server (dnsmasq v2.55) at the center of three subnets: x.y.1.0/24, x.y.2.0/24 & x.y.3.0/24. dnsmasq does a grand job of issuing a suitable DNS server address with the DHCP option 6. So, machines on subnet x.y.3.0/24 are told that the DNS server is x.y.3.2, machines on subnet x.y.2.0/24 are told that the DNS server is x.y.2.2 and machines on subnet x.y.1.0/24 are told that the DNS server is at x.y.1.2. Even though the DNS server is the same box (although with three nics).
Now the question is: How do I make dnsmasq respond similarly to name resolution requests? So that when: Machines from x.y.3.0/24, ping <name of DNS server> dnsmasq returns x.y.3.2, Machines from x.y.2.0/24, ping <name of DNS server> dnsmasq returns x.y.2.2, and Machines from x.y.1.0/24, ping <name of DNS server> dnsmasq returns x.y.1.2.
Currently, the DNS server returns the IP address that is assigned in /etc/host. Which, of course can be changed, but via that mechanism, will always be wrong two out of three cases.
At the outset I would like to tell everyone that I am still relatively a newbie in linux. I use a usb mobile broadband data card to connect to the internet, and I recently purchased another desktop for my wife. Both of us do not share any files, but I do not have a router and was wondering if I could share my connection with her using a crossover cable.I did a lot of Googling around and tried various different things, I even followed another thread in the same forum but the most that I have got is my network manager saying that connection has been established. I am however not able to see her computer under my windows network and don't know how to proceed.I don't know where I am going wrong, and considering that my knowledge of networking is at below basement level, I would really appreciate any help in this regard.
After upgrading Jaunty to Karmic internet sharing (iptables) stoped working. Nothing in iptables configuration was changed. Computers behind my ubuntu router can ping it, have access to it (apache, samba, etc.). Only internet isnt forwarding. Clients configuration is the same as before upgrade.
i'm trying out appinventor with ubuntu maverick everything works if i connect to the internet with an internet key or wifi.i got problems when i connect to internet with the android device: when i click connect to phone from "block editor" it says it can't connect to the phone.is adb unable to work when the device is used for connection sharing ?
I'm trying to share internet connection with my wifi capable mobile device. For that I'm creating ad-hoc wifi connection in networkmanager with 'shared to other computers' ipv4 option. And there is the problem - the device cannot get the setting via DHCP. The firewall is adjusted properly by NM, dnsmasq is started. I've looked at dnsmasq arguments string and found that the temporary config file which is provided by NM is empty. So, where else should I look for a possible reason or should I just post a NM bug?
Trying to set up network sharing between Ubuntu 9.10 and Vista. I already did this with a wired Ubuntu 9.10 desktop and my Vista laptop but for some reason my Ubuntu 9.10 wireless and Vista wireless aren't as easy. They are all on the same workgroup "MAGIC" and I can see my ubuntu shares on the Vista computer but can't see the Vista shares on the ubuntu computer. In ubuntu I go to network>windows network>MAGIC but it times out at the MAGIC workgroup part and says 'unable to mount'.
but no luck I also checked and there isn't a firewall that's in the way.
ive just installed ubunutu 10.10 and its connected to the internet via a wireless conection. However I would like to share the connection with an xbox 360 connected to the computer via a ethernet cable. I changed the method under ip4 in the auto eth0 wire connection to "shared to other computers" aplyed and restarted, however whenever the 360 tries to connect itll take a while and then say unable to connect. I also tried this using a ps3 and the ps3 says timed out waiting for ip address. Ive doen this on windows by bridging the connection and it worked without the use of a crossover wire. Would I need a crossover wire?
i connect to the internet on my laptop using a usb modem. i want to share this connection with other computers. connected through lan cable. i want to manually assign ip on all computers. what should i do
I recently installed Ubuntu with partion with Vista, and I am enjoying the Ubuntu experience will buy a book and learn this awesome OS, my question is this:
My wife has a laptop that runs Vista, and when i use my Vista she can see my files and I share this hard drive with her, but when i run Ubuntu she cant see this drive, i have extrernal hard drive as my backup with lot of different files on it and she can pull files from it but when i use Ubuntu she can see on her Vista Network, how can i make so when i use Ubuntu she can see my drive? On my Windows i set up sharing of files but how do the same with Ubuntu.
Regardless of distribution, but not Windows, there would be this a/v computer that has a sound card and video card for which any other Linux computer would have access to these two devices. How do I achieve this mess?
I was primarily thinking of having a share on the a/v computer that would expose links to the sound card and video card for which the other computers could simply link to these devices. Does this sound kosher besides the conflict of concurrency?
I am using ubuntu 10.04 .I tried to share my files on windows network using samba , I changed theworkgroup name in samba configuration file ..but it dint work for me will you please tell me the exact procedure to share the files on windows network ..
have a home network with two desktops and I also have a netbook. The netbook and nettop (desktop) both run UNR 9.10 and my other desktop runs Ubuntu 9.10 with all updates in place. So all 3 machines are hooked up to my home network via wireless router (secure and password protect). I want to set up file shares between machines in order to move files between machines and also to have all machines connected to and accessing one shared printer. Fair enough. According to Ubuntu help I click on a folder, then properties then the share tab and click all checkboxes and give the share a name. Then I do likewise on my two other machines. So in theory once every machine has a share setup then you should be able to access via the other machines by simply going into Network, finding the machine, opening it and mounting the shared folder. In some cases I see the other machines but when I click to open them it says "unable to mount location". So now I would like to ask... where should I look to resolve this? The wireless router settings? Some type of network or security settings on each of my machines?
I've looked at all 250 threads that come up when I search "Windows network password" and can't seem to find the answer. On my win7 box, when I try to connect to an Ubuntu share on my ubuntu box, it asks for username and password. I have tried my ubuntu username and password, the windows networking password, and my win7 user account name and password, and I cant get in.
I got a laptop with wireless. Next to it I got 2 desktops, neither of which have a wireless card and I don't have any usb wireless adapters or anything. I do however have an ethernet cord. In the past I was able to set my eth0 connection to be "shared to other computers", then from my laptop I could run the patch cable to the desktop and voila, internet to the desktops.
For some reason though, now whenever I try to connect from the desktops, there are 2 green circles and a little blue circley thing going around them. it spins for a while and then says disconnected. Also, now if (on my laptop) I connect to the wired network, my wireless stops working. I'm kind of stumped here, I tried deleting both connections from both computers, setting everything up again, and connecting, and I get the same problem. Also seeing as how I'm trying to troubleshoot this from my laptop and watch this thread, I can't exactly mess around with it much right now or I won't see any replies.
