I've not found how to configure more than one ip address with network manager.Nor with kde nor with plasmoid network manager.I need several virtual ip addresses for eth0 when the "default" of eth0 is connected i.e. "Connected to Auto eth0" should initialize the virtual interfaces.I have not found no even how to configure the ip address.I think this will be used from ifup config in yast or not?There I have the virtual interfaces but they are not taken from network manager.And last but no least: Is it possible that when using network manager the eth0 is enabled even no user has logged in?
There is a big problem with opensuse 11.4 and virtual interfaces.Until 11.2 outgoing traffic by default was sent by the eth0 address nevertheless which virtual interfaces did exist if any was used.Now there seems to be sent by the last interface listed with ifconfig.The outgoing address in this case will be 10.0.0.3.This is very problematic with smtp control etc.
Im new in this world of linux and suse. I have just installed the opensuse 11.2 in a Dell Inspiron 5160. Such laptop has a BCM4306 Wireless LAN controller. When I tried to configure a wlan connection, I found that the firmware was not installed. After looking in different forums, I installed the firmware b43. Now, my wlan card is abled to find the wireless of my router.
I have tried to configure a connection with YAST as well as with Network Manager, but both cases failled. Specifically, when I use Network manager, Im able to see in the applet my connection, how strong is the signal, but I see a yellow symbol (in one forum, such a box is shown with a green symbol).
I have check many time all about the secutity, encryption, and so one and all seems to be correct. But when I open the mozila firefox or the konqueror browser, no chance to surffer in internet. Now Im just a step to become crazy. The drivers are ok, the information about the router and the keys are ok, but in such a way, I am still harmloss.
with the ifup method everything works fine. But now I bought a wireless card, so I prefer to use the network manager to manage my connection. On my computer I need a static IP for wired connection, so I created a new wired connection and I called it "wired connection". But network manager always connect automatically to "Auto eth0" and I can't find how to modify this connection. Setting "wired connection" as default didn't change anything, probably becouse it need me to unlock the default wallet... Now, another problem, I really don't know why network manager applet doesn't appear on system tray, but I'm sure that I'm using it instead of the ifup method.
When logging in to a remote server and starting Nautilus, I then want to add and bookmark an ssh connection to another remote server. I get an EM 'cannot find the location' and when going to 'network locations' EM 'Nautilus cannot handle network locations'. I 've been googling for a few hours, and found a lot of threads that point to gvfs, to samba and to rebooting and reinstalling. Rebooting I did, reinstalling is not possible,the gvfs thing is very unclear. There was an Em on the command line when starting Nautilus: "share extensions disabled", I got rid of that by uninstalling nautilus-share-extensions. Opensuse 11.2 fully updated, running as Kiwi-Ltsp server.
I have installed Vbox on 2 systems running Opensuse 11.3 and both have experienced knetworkmanager failure. Knetworkmanager failed after a failed wake up from sleep mod, which also had been working perfectly until this failure. I am wondering if the vbox kernel modules could be causing this isssue. To temporarily fix the problem I am running my network connections through yast networks setting . (which uses the traditional ifup method and everything is working)
Okay something i find very odd. When booting the livecd network manager is there, i select my wireless net and connect. Yet i install and it doesn't appear, i click the network bit under the status tab of the computer menu and by default it's using ifup and not network manager...anyone else get that? Or is it supposed to be that way...seems rather unfriendly though.
Recently I purchased a new laptop and installed openSUSE 11.3 x64 Gnome. I was running openSUSE 11.2 x86 Gnome on my previous laptop. Most things are working well, although still tweaking things here and there.
The biggest issue at the moment is starting the network. When I boot the system it loads into desktop (gnome) no problem, but then takes between 3 - 5 minutes to come up asking for Default Keyring Password before it will launch network manager. Everything else has loaded and it running fine except the network.
The first time I launched the system (after install) it worked perfectly, however soon as a set the password for the Default Key this started happening. The time delay before it launches does vary each time but always around 3 minute mark.
Adapter 2: HTC Desire tethered via USB. When I start from scratch, with no remembered networks in the network manager, the Ethernet is shown as "Auto Ethernet". When I then connect the HTC Desire, the new network is shown in the network manager also as "Auto Ethernet". Previously, when I right clicked on the network manager and selected "Edit Connections", there were multiple "Auto Ethernet" entries under the wired tab.
Now (and I do not know what changed, sorry), I only see one entry. When I edit this entry (say, add a route), then the route is added for both network interfaces. This used to still work, so I was not worried about the name clash, but now it is causing problems so I need to have a different name for each network interface.
In Googling around it appears that the Network Manager used to have a nice simple (obvious, logical, straightforward, intuitive, easy-to-use... ... can you tell I'm a bit surprised that there's not a simple button to do this, it's pretty common functionality ) option in the IPv4 tab called "Shared to other computers" allowing you to share your network connection with any computers connected to yours... kind of like this:
Professor Google seems to indicate that this may have existed in Debian at one point but, I don't see this option anymore. How do I get it back (or is there another gui way to do this without editing the /etc/network/interfaces file... if there's no other way to do this... that's fine but I'd prefer an easy method of enabling and disabling sharing)?
What I'm trying to do... I have a Beaglebone Black connected via IP over USB. When I'm ssh'ed into the BeagleBone, I want to be able to use aptitude install to grab new packages etc... and that kind of requires access to the outside world. Everything I've found so far seems to to require a modification to the interfaces file but since (according to the interfaces man page) the preferred method is to use the network manager if possible... I'm trying to avoid that.
* It should be noted that I'm running sid with the experimental 4.3 kernel so... maybe in doing so I've shot myself in the foot?
I recently upgraded a 11.0 installation running on Xen Server to 11.3. I am experiencing frequent network disconnections now. The ip address and default gateway is assigned statically. However, the system seems to ignore the default gateway after a while. Then after several minutes it seems like it comes back.

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.
while trying to set up Xen Virtual Nodes we encountered one issue with the network (which is why it is posted here On the DomU the interface is provided by a bonding -bond0- of three NICS. Now the Xen network script a) does not take this bonding b) destroyes even this bonding From a number of posts I assume I have to configure this by hand, correct? Is there an instruction how to do this? Simply create a bridge on top of bond0??
I just intalled OpenSuse 11.2 on VmWare Server 2.0.2, the network is configured as Bridged and is sucefully configured a fixed IP in my network. Ok... The problem is... I can ping / trace all addresses from OpenSuse console. But I Can't wget all of them... It's a random thing. the same address that trace's ok, don't work for HTTP.
Recently loaded 11.3 onto a virtual machine, however none of the network settings will allow me to connect to the internet. First time Ive had this happen, other distro's Ive experimented with connected with no problems. I recall seeing a similar topic some time ago (dont remember if it was here or another forum), but at the time, there had been no fix. Anyone know if this has been fixed?
I installed openSUSE on one of my work system. The network port wasn't working when I was installing, but works fine now (checked in Windows). But for some reason, I am not able to configure the network. I used both Dynamic and Static IPs (both work fine in Windows) but still no go. I am using Yast Control Center for this purpose. I can't even ping the default gateway when I am using custom settings. When I use dynamic settings, it says Unreachable Network.
I am using an Acer Aspire 5536 AMD dual core laptop with a 64bit installation of Susie 11.4. Using 11.2 I had no problems connecting to the wireless router. As soon as 11.4 was installed, clean install, and the laptop rebooted, network manager failed to start, until manually invoked and then enabling networking through the system tray. Even after this it will not connect to a wired or wireless network sometimes for more than 30 minutes.
I tried to install suse 11.4 on the new gnome desktop 3. everything seems to work except the network manager. Is not present in the bar and I can not restore it. tried to reinstall network manager but to no avail.Does anyone know how I could solve this problem
I'm trying to configure OpenSuSE 11.2 with Open vSwitch, and I'm having trouble getting various interfaces to come up automatically when I have bootmode set to "none." startmode is set to auto (or on - tried both), and bootmode set to none, with no IP address assigned in the file. At boot time, I get the message that it's bringing up eth0, for example, but when I log in and check, the interface is not up. Also, if I try "ifup eth0", I get the following output:
I recently installed OpenSUSE 11.2 and everything works fine except wi-fi card, of course. The problem is that after installation the system recognized the card (is was listed in network devices in Yast) but I was unable to enable it through network-manager applet. Though the device could make scanning through terminal (found article in docs but didn't fully understand wpa_gui). Then i was stupid enough to delete the device from Yast list to try to reinstall it. So the problem is that i simply can't do this cause i see no way to re-detect. That is the goal is to at least turn back to post-install system state and try to enable wifi card again.
When I attempt to connect to a wireless network, the network manager asks me for the network's password, then says 'setting network address' for 20 or so seconds, then asks me for some random Hex or ASCII key in the same type of window I put the password in (Secrets for Noel -- KDE Daemon). Since a key is already typed into the window, I press OK, which then causes the network manager to go back to 'setting network address', then the window pops up again and keeps repeating itself.
I'm running Opensuse 11.4 with KDE, and my driver is ath9k. I don't know much about linux so please don't tell me to 'recompile this' or 'change this setting' without explaining how to do it. Please help, I've been unable to connect to wireless in OpenSUSE for 2 weeks now.
I m nokia mobile to connect to internet in 11.2 configured it all in n/w manager with phone number *99#
APN: XYUX(as given by provider)
Also wrote the dns in resolv.conf but all in vain . it is not connecting neither dialing any number just shows "activating" but with no progress earlier in 11.1 i used kinternet (but i couldn't find it here) is there not any other dialer ? as i ve heard that n/w manager is quite troublesome.
All settings are correct as far as i can tell. The wep key works on all my windows boxes. When i have connect automatically enabled it never tries to connect. if I go to edit it it pops kde wallet up i put in credentials. wallet goes away then nothing happens. if i double click connection to my router also nothing happens. I have the wep key in there and i even made it visible to make sure.
