I used my colleges online site to automatically install and setup the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client. Everything went smoothly. I have a Cisco icon in my system tray and it says that I am connected to the VPN.
My question then is where do I access the VPN? I am assuming that I can access the other computers at the other end of the VPN as I would if they were networked to me, however I cannot seem to find any information on how this is done after the connection is made.
I looked in the Network folder which is where I figured everything would be, but there is nothing other than the normal, empty, network folders.
I am running Linux Mint 9, KDE 4.4
My friend Google let me down, and every VPN how to I can find ends at the "connected" stage, never getting into details about where to go from there...
I think I've read every post here about the Broadcom and connection.I thought I tried everything.Turns out (read Chapter�35.�Using NetworkManager) using Connection Manager (K Network Manager) you can not use, what I wanted to use, 'all users, use connection' or said another way, the wifi would be activated and connected Before the user 'logs in'. Well, as I said, it turns out that if you are using gnome, this will work with NetMgr, but NOT in KDE. If you want to use 'system connect' then you have to use 'traditional' if in YaST2. Oh well, at least 'i'm' connected.... (i'm the only user, so not a big deal right now, but would like to get it working...)
I am running an Ubuntu Server on a VirtualBox VM running on my windows machine. So I've created a self-signed certificate using the following tutorial: [URL]
From this tutorial I'm left with 3 files: server.key server.csr server.crt
Then I found this very similar tutorial that has an extra bit on installing the certificates in apache: [URL] So I followed it's instructions which boil down to this:
So I'm thinking this should work now. However in Chrome I get: SSL connection error Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don't have. Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR): SSL protocol error. IE8 gives me a typical "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" Note that [URL] fails while [URL] works fine, so it's definitely something in my ssl setup I'm thinking.
I have been running OpenSuSE 11.1 with the proprietary VNIDIA driver for a year or so and recently upgraded my internet connection from slow old dialup. I installed some software upgrades this made possible but the process failed on some point (I didn't make a note of the details) and the next time I tried to log on it booted up to the CLI. I tried startx and got the message;
using config file "etc/x11/xorg.conf" no devices detected Fatal server error no screens found giving up xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
I recently preformed a full update to my openSuSe 11.3 x64 + gnome install. Everything was running fine before the update however post a number of features have stopped working or have changed. I used the command zypper up to update everything. The errors I've been recieving are as follows, Wastebasket
Won't open on via Desktop or Places menu. Gives the following error "Could not display "trash:" File Is Of An Unknown Type". If I drop things on the Wastebasket the files do go to /home/USERNAME/.local/share/Trash/files but I can't Empty Wastebasket upon right click as the option is highlighted out.
Computer Icon If I try to open it from link in Places menu I get the error Nautilus cannot handle "computer" locations.. The link to it has also disappeared from the left hand panel if I have a Nautilus window open. Mounted Icons Previously I used to have 4 drives mounted;
1 network (NFS), 1 encrypted (TrueMount), 2 Windows (partitions of main machine)
Out of these only the encrypted and network drive showed on the Desktop and two Windows drives would stay mounted under /windows but have no icon on the Desktop. After the update, all these drives are on the desktop and but the only way to not have them appear on Desktop is to set Gnome config not to show any of the icons on Desktop. Although these are independent errors, they are all related to folders (at least indirectly) so I felt it was better to group them together to give a better picture of the issue.
I can make a connection to the vpn server, the connection starts, but nothing happens! My IP address remains the same as previous! There is nothing added to my Knetworkmanager, I'm a beginner I should use a pcf file for my vpn connection. I use it properly, I'm sure because the connection starts and an icon is added to my panel and remains until I disconnect.
I checked it via ifconfig -a, the last part (which is for vpn) is:
having had problems with getting grub2 to work on dual HDD setup...despite the most excellent advice on the forum i took the plunge and installed 10.10 from update manager within 10.04..... bingo fixed grub and now have dual boot again. but the update manager and synaptic package don't work because of libedata-cal1.2-6 file that remains..following other advice on the forum Advice gratefully received, how can i force an unistall of this package
mark@studypc:~$ sudo apt-get -f remove Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done
On a fresh install (tried two new installs now) I'm getting an error when I try to go out to the update repositories after the install. I'm getting a "failed to download /suse/setup/descr/packages.DU.gz from [URL] It seems to get about 48% and just hangs there. This happens both if I try downloading updates during the install or if I try doing an on-line update after the system is up.
I have an LG R-450 laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 installed in it. When I connect him to a network (either LAN or Wireless) it stays connected for a few minutes and then Just disconnects (without showing any sign of disconnection except no internet/skype/dropbox). Only way to renew connection is after startup. The network controller is SIS 191 Gigabit Ethernet adapter.
Alright, I was playing with the VPN capabilities in KDE4 on Squeeze AMD64 on my personal laptop (see my signature) and found it very easy to create a VPN connection and connect, but that's it. I made a VPN tunnel to one of my client locations as a test, but could use rdesktop to get into the server. Then I realized I couldn't ping the server either. I also lost all ability to browse the web and everything while the VPN was up. Upon checking ifconfig as root, I saw that it created "ppp0" and hat it had pulled an IP from the client network, but all of my networking capabilities were gone. What gives? What is it that I am missing?
I have an issue in Gmail that has just started recently. When I'm logged into Gmail I sometimes have as many as 22-28 outbound connections and my NIC never stops sending and receiving data.When I log into Gmail this starts and doesn't stop even if I log out and close the tab. I have to quit the browser to lose the connections.
I had a thread URL... that initially was about this issue but I didn't know it seemed to be totally Gmail related so I thought I might ask this way. It could be Google just changed something on their end but I don't want to run my mail until I know it's ok.
I'm running 10.04 (64bit) on an hp dv6915nr and sound has been working great for the past few weeks. When I started the machine up today, it wouldn't play any sounds and the sound preferences show no input devices. Output devices lists simply "Dummy Output".
The only thing that I believe to have changed recently is updates. I installed a set of updates a day or tow ago. I hadn't used anything requiring sound immediately after the update, so I'm not sure if the updates were the issue.
There seems to be something that has changed in the newest stable Debian - I chose kde4 as my default desktop at installation, and it worked fine. Then I went and changed some options in both /var/run/kdm/kdmrc and /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc, something I have done many times before without problems.
However, when I tried to restart kdm with /etc/init.d/kdm, things didn't come up - no X, no kdm. When I rebooted the machine everything seemed fine, so I thought the problem was solved; but this morning I wanted to change something else - I don't want kdm to remember the last user, and I don't want to see a list of users either. Now dkm and X fail even when I reboot; I also find that /var/run/kdm/kdmrc has disappeared - I am certain I didn't remove it.
The strange thing, when I try /etc/init.d/kdm, I can kdm hanging around all alone in the process list, but no X or greeter. So what is going on - what should I have done instead? And can I repair it? I can of course reinstall the system, but I hate to think that we can't manage better in Linux.
I downloaded openSUSE-11.4-KDE-LiveCD-i686.iso from software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 11.4 yesterday.It's a liveCD,not a DVD. Then I used a dd command to make a live USB by the instruction from this page:SDB:Live USB Then I shut down the computer,and boot from the usb. I went to the yast--DSL to make a new adsl connection.But after I configured everything,yast told me one package needed.The package's name is "linux-atm-lib". I haven't connected to internet.How could I do to install a package and make a connection?
Now I am downloading a DVD.Does a DVD include the package called "linux-atm-lib"?
Having just installed OpenSuse 11.3, NetworkManager identifies my wireless network, but repeatedly fails to make a connection. Without further ado, here are the outputs to commands requested in the first sticky thread:
After upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04, I'm not able to make any connection to the internet with either my netbook through WiFi or my computer on wired LAN. I can, however, ping my Solaris machines and Macbook. How do I fix this?
I've noticed that after updating opensuse to 11.2 from 11.1 vino is slighly different by its layout. Is there big changes in vino?My problem is that when I connect to vnc (from windows with tightvnc viewer), it asks password normally, and let me log in, but when the screen has "rendered" from up to down, it doesn't update it any more. It let me move the mouse, and if I test it locally from other computer in LAN, I see the mouse moving and text appearing when typing and windows moving when moving, but no changes in vnc viewer screen! I mean it doesn't update the differences at all.What could be the problem? I tried out realvnc as well, but it seems it is not in the viewer. Is it in vino? I have correct ports open and so, just like before. It worked in 11.1 but not in 11.2
if I can update the OS (new security updates,patches etc also) on a system that ain't having any internet connection. Simply i would like to know if there is any packs like rpm/ tar files available, so that we can install the updates easily..I am using opensuse..
just curious, this might not be possible, but is there any way with ajax to open an ftp connection, download a file and then turn around and POST it to a web server? the reason i ask is because i'm writing a script on a shared hosting plan that doesn't give me permission to directly talk outbound on the ftp port but i need to synchronize a file from a csv on an ftp server, this means i have to do the process manually, is there any way i can just click the button and let my browser do the work?
I have a new install of OpenSuse 64-bit. I've stumbled around blindly and seem to have installed Dropbox using dropbox-lnx.x86_64-1.1.24.tar.gz. It apparently worked because I was able to enter successfully my Dropbox log-on information.
I have no idea what to do next. There's no indication of any synchronisation in Dolphin. Dropbox installation in Ubuntu/Mint is a no-brainer but this has me stumped.
I updated today and naturally removed the old nVidia driver, compiled it again after a reboot, and then rebooted again for good measure. I can log into KDE4, but all I get is a cursor and a solid black background. I deleted the ~/.kde, ~/.local, and quite a few other directories from my normal user account using the shell so KDE would reconfigure my settings when I logged in again, but it's the same problem. I went into ~/.kde/share/config/kwinrc and added the "Compositing" section with "Enabled=false" to rule out compositing. Now when I log into the system I get the default KDE4 wallpaper and a mouse cursor, but nothing else. I believe the latest update broke KDE4, or am I missing something? I have recreated my xorg.conf as well, and only set it to use the nVidia driver. So what can I do now?
