OpenSUSE Network :: Setting Static Local IP Address?
Feb 18, 2010
how I can define a local static IP address (so that I can run a web server off of the same IP, rather than letting my router DHCP it)?I've tried doing the YaST->Network Devices->Network Settings->Traditional Method with ifup->Set NIC to desired IP->Set Default Gateway to router address method, and afterwards I can't even get into my router anymore (not even responding to ping).
I have a problem with tightvnc, when I set up a dinamic ip with networkmanager it works fine but if I set up a static address connection it display an error "You have been unexpectedly disconnected from 'hometsa-comp'. Would you like to reconnect?"
"Couldn't convert 'hometsa-comp' to host address" I have setup the ip address, netmask, gateway and dns server in the network manager static address, it works when I setup the vnc connection using ip address instead of hostnames.
I'm maintaining a very modest network at home, with OpenSUSE as OS on the server. I got the DHCP and routing working by following the instructions in the wiki. However, every time I run dhclient on the server/router, it appears my own DHCP server assigns an address to the internal network card despite the fact I specifically assigned it to be static using Yast. The situation resolves itself when I restart the network services with the command /etc/init.d/network restart. Otherwise no problem, but it also seems the internal network card gets a "new" IP from my server every time the external card requests one from the ISP. This is more of an issue.
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.
Version 10.04 LTS. Installed desktop version and network worked but I needed a static IP address and the install configures for a DHCP configured address. I tried changing to static address using the System->Preferences->Network Connections application but was unable to get the system to come up with the network up.
So I manually modified the /etc/network/interfaces and the /etc/resolv.conf files. I restart the system but when I do an ifconfig, I don't see a configured IP address on eth0 (only the loopback address). If I run /sbin/ifup eth0 everything then works fine and ifconfig shows the correct address bound to eth0.
I am trying to setup my home server for test purposes. Now the IP I have assised my home server are 192.168.1.2 192.168.1.3
Port 80 is open in my firewall and Selinux is off at the moment.Now I have my DNS at my registar pointing at my home IP. Will that work? I have my name server configured with my local ip. Should I use my externel?
i want to know mac address of a particular ip but the problem is that i am unable to ping that ip but that ip is being used by someone in my local network that i know from my proxy logs. i want to know the mac address of that ip,
I know there are tons of help guides out there for this, and I have looked at and tried them all. I am trying to do something really simple, and just can't seem to get it working. I have been trying on and off for the better part of a week now, with not much luck. What I am tyring to do is have a Ubuntu 10.10 server serve out DHCP addresses and be the DNS for the local network. The local network will have no internet access, so it only needs to know the names of the local server. My network setup is as follows:
1: Windows Vista web server 2: Ubuntu DHCP3 and BIND server to give IP's and resolve local names. 3: A bunch of tablet computers connected via dhcp to the network, that need to access the web server on the Windows machine.
I have DHCP working nicely, but it fails to propagate the hostnames to the tablet computers. Unfortunately I need this to work, as the tablets do not have the capability of having a 'hosts' file.I have tried just about every self-help guide I can find, and just can't seem to get this work. Everything seems to work fine except for the name resolution. Any help would be great, I don't have that much hair left to pull out!
i have a small issue, to make our network more secure, i now require outgoing email to require authentication. Now the problem..i have a automated mailer that does not have the option to authenticate. is there a way to allow a certain email address or the local network to send out without authentication? If i cannot do this for a single email user to allow them through with authentication, how would i remove the authentication paramaters in the postfix smtp..
Running Ubuntu 9.10. In the Remote Desktop config dialog I get: "Your desktop is only reachable over the local network. Others can access your computer using the address 127.0.0.1 or tabatha.local." I understand this means only the loopback ip address is available. All my other machines show their true local ip address (e.g., 192.168.1.104) in this dialog. Thus I cannot log on to this desktop from other machines.
When I try to do a remote logon from another Ubuntu 9.10 box (or from an XP box using a VNC viewer), I get: "Connection to 192.168.1.102 has been closed." What steps are needed to make this machine show its actual ip address? All file sharing between the various machines is working properly and all windows shares back and forth between XP and 'nix, and among the the vaious XP boxes and linux boxes are available as designed.
I have Debian 8.2 with KDE 4.14 and everything runs perfect, except for the internet connection. This problem happens randomly when I turn on my machine. Sometimes when the desktop loads, the connection is already settled.
But sometimes when the desktop loads, the wifi icon is still loading and keeps stuck at "setting network address". Since this problem happens randomly I really don't know what is happening here. My wifi chip is this:
I got this message on Friday from just one domain. uote:mailsrv.forthnet.gr #<mailsrv.forthnet.gr #5.5.0 smtp; 554 5.5.0 Your message was considered to be spam by the FORTHnet Antispamming Policy and was not delivered to the recipient. The following spam tests returned positive for this message:FORGED_RCVD_HELO,RCVD_IN_BRBL. For further information visitWe are not a spamming community but it seems we have a statice IP address that has a Reverse lookup to "myipaddress.static.lyse.net" and not my email domain. Would setting a cname mail.mydomain.no -> myipaddress.static.lyse.net cure this problem or are there more tricks to be performedOnce I have cured the FORGED_RCVD_HELO I can move to getting the IP removed from BARACUDA.
I'd like to have a set up where my Ethernet card has a static IP set up but my WiFi card doesn't.Currently I have a profile for this set up in Network Manager, however on boot up and every time I replug the cable Network Manager chooses the default "auto eth1" profile. I manually have tochoose my own profile for the Ethernet card every time. How can I make it default??I know the workaround would be to use ifup but then I lose the ability to quickly change access points for my WiFi card so that's not a solution for me
New SUSE 11.3 install connects to network/internet etc OK with DHCP-assigned IP address. When I switch to static IP, I can no longer ping internal network, or anything else. This works OK with SUSE 11.2 on same hardware and (as far as I can see) same setup. Some diagnostics are shown below.
Firewall Disabling the firewall makes no difference.
Not using a network manager (can't see how to assign fixed address if I do - all greyed out).
ifup eth0: eth0 device: Intel Corporation 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 02) SuSEfirewall2: Warning: no default firewall zone defined, assuming 'ext' (not sure why the warning - eth0 is assigned to external in the firewall setup).
We're trying to replicate something that Windows servers can do. Basically on a Windows box, you can give it a static IP address, but there is an option to have it update the DNS server with it's IP and hostname. We are trying to do this on SUSE 11.I know I can get this function to work on SUSE if the box is set up as with DHCP. What we're having difficulty is when the server is set up as a Static IP to get it to update the DNS server
I have virtual box installed which automatically installed bridges for my network adapters. This has always worked fine. I'm attempting to set up a static IP for this machine now. I use NetworkManager, and the physical connection (eth0) is set to static IP of 0.0.0.0, and the bridge (br0) attached to eth0 was set to DHCP. I changed br0 to my desired static IP and lost net connectivity (I'm talking about the host, not the virtual machine - I'll get the host working first). Re-enabling DHCP restores connectivity. So I don't know what the problem is, but I am unable to assign a static IP to the bridged connection. Do I have to do this differently? Do I need to remove the bridge so I am using just eth0 again, assign the static IP to eth0, and then re-install the bridge? I haven't tried that yet because a) I don't know how to remove & reinstall the bridge, because it was done automatically by Virtual Box installation, and b) I could probably do that if I had the time figure it out but right now I don't.
I set up a static IP on wlan0 on another machine using Network Manager and it works fine. That machine also has Virtual Box installed but for some reason doesn't have the bridged connections. (Perhaps because it runs Ubuntu, not OpenSUSE, if that makes any difference)
I just installed open Suse 11.3, and I cannot SSH my school. Upon further investigation I could not even ping any machines outside my local area network. Ironically I could nmap machines outside my local area network.
I have a mac and an openSUSE box connected wirelessly to a router. From my mac, if I ping the Linux machine by both ip address and hostname "elmo.local", I get a response. If I ping my mac from the Linux machine using its ip address, I get a response. However, if I ping the mac from the Linux box using its name "kermit.local" - nothing!
This means in order to share files between them via the network, I have to use the ip address rather than name, but I'd rather not. When I had Ubuntu installed instead of openSUSE this all worked fine out of the box, so I'm assuming it's a problem with the setup of openSUSE rather than the router or the mac.
Recently our sys administrator decided to go to static IPs from the earlier assigned dynamic ones. This has created some havoc in my open suse 11 and I do not have access to network. I tried using the YAST network configuration manager, after everything is done it shows 'network wired' but unable to ping.
I am facing two issues with CUPS - 1. I have installed cups 1.3.9 over OpenSuse11 x86. Please check below -
cups:/usr/share/cups/banners # cups-config --version 1.3.9 cups:/usr/share/cups/banners # cat /proc/version Linux version 126.96.36.199-9-pae (geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 4.3.2 [gcc-4_3-branch revision 141291] (SUSE Linux) ) #1 SMP 2008-12-04 18:10:04 +0100
I have added few printers over there and everything is working fine. I can also able to add - delete - modify any printers from "yast2 printer" command. I can also able to browse cups web interface via http://cups:631, but when I am going to manage the printers (start - stop - delete etc), none of the buttons are working in firefox5 not even in IE also. Older version of firefox is giving error as "This address uses a network port which is normally used for purposes other than Web browsing. Firefox has canceled the request for your protection." All other buttons are working properly.
2. LINUX - LINUX Printing - OK LINUX - WINDOWS Printing - OK WINDOWS - LINUX Printing - NOT OK
While giving printing from Windows machine (Printer attached on Linux), there is no problem to coonect the printers, but unable to print.
