OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Get An IP Address Yast2 And Network Settings Displays?
Jan 31, 2010
I've updated a desktop from 11.1 to 11.2 with the NET CD. After completion everything worked fine, though I have some issues with the NIC. been looking on the net and the provided solutions haven't been able to resolve the matter. After reboot I don't get an IP address, I go into Yast2 and network settings displays:
I have to delete the unknown device everytime after a reboot in order to get a new IP address. After that all works as it is suppsed to. I've been looking into the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and deleted all that was in there,
New to opensuse, trying to set up cache proxy and webfilter at a highschool. I have a new install of opensuse11.2 64bit installed as server. Installed squid3 stable. Trying to configure it in yast2. Now in yast2-->networkservices-->squid I get the message squid needs to be installed, continuing with Next I get message unresolved dependencies then another that squid3 conflicts with squid-2.7. Solutions offered are deinstall squid3 or don't install squid-2. I select the latter and get messages that yast might not function etc. Isn't squid3 the newer version of squid-2? Should yast2 recognize that?
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 220.127.116.11-9-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.
I deleted the firewall files "K09SuSEfirewall2_init", "K01SuSEfirewall2_setup", "S11SuSEfirewall2_setup" and "S01SuSEfirewall2_init" from "/etc/rc.d/rc5.d" in order to disable the firewall when rebooting.
As a consequence all network services are not working. I can't connect to any other machine nor to the internet.
I rebuilt the symbolic files based on the ones for runlevel 3, but still no network services are available.
Any suggestions how to make it work again? I'm using Suse 11.3.
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.
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 have a desktop computer running OpenSUSE 11.2 with two network cards installed. I would like to use both cards for connecting to the internet using different networks. The setting would be the following: eth0 is the main (default) card, almost all programs should use this NIC for connecting to the internet. eth1 is used only by a few programs, which have setting for selecting which network interface to use. The two NIC's are connected to different networks, so the IP address of the NIC's, the related subnet masks and gateways are also different.
Saying short, I would like to have the two NIC's as they would be in two separate computers. I can set the IP address and subnet mask of the NIC's. The main problem is that I can only declare one gateway. How can i setup this? I do not use network manager, I configure network cards using yast, but if needed I can of course use ifconfig directly.
Steps to reproduce: Tell Yast2 to configure WWW to use SSL. Tell Yast2 to set APACHE_SERVER_FLAGS in sysconfig:WWW to SSL TRAC_WSGI. Tell Yast2 to configure WWW. Yast2 will notify you about unsupported configuration changes. Tell Yast2 to exit saving changes. Tell Yast2 to examine APACHE_SERVER_FLAGS in sysconfig. Observe how the value is back to SSL. As a result, whatever you tell Yast2 to do to WWW, you have to fix sysconfig thereafter. Not funny.
IPV6 gets more and more interesting. YAST is failing to connect to the repositories. I have disabled ipv6 in several ways but none of them work or YAST (also Konqueror) seems to do it's own thing. I have managed to get Firefox to work see my "slow internet seems to be down to dns post" made earlier today. So as a check on the YAST problem I loaded each of the repository addresses into Firefox and lo they all connect without any problem at all. So it seems that the YAST problem is down to IPV6
In order to disable ipv6 I initially added ipv6.disable=1 to the end of all of the bootloader APPENDS. More recently following up further info on here I added a couple of lines to /etc/modprobe.d/99-local.conf. These were: alias net-pf-10 off alias ipv6 off This doesn't work either.
Maybe of use to others - It seems it's possible to see if IPV6 is active by typing the following into the command line: ip a | grep inet6 I'm told if it is active lines will be output? So just what do I do to disable it in YAST and I hope in Konqueror too? It's beginning to look like it is enabled or disabled at the app level according to the Firefox fix.
I am unable to examine Apache httpd error log from YaST2 because the lines are too long; the browser just truncates them and thus it does not show any description. The only option is to save it. However, when I chose that option, YaST2 encourages me to save it in /tmp, and as soon as I do that, the log becomes accessible to every user!
I've been running a SuseStudio-built VM for a few weeks with no issues. I built a new one recently, and now I can't configure a new vhost in Apache using the http-server module. It gives me this error. Screen shot 2010-11-06 at 11.42.24 AM.png. Why YaST suddenly decided that my hostnames aren't valid?
I have to wonder how much testing Opensuse has done with yast-dns-server package. After adding zones to the dns server - the system loses the ability to perform name resolutions. I can copy a named.conf file from a system that does work, except everytime the system is restart the named.conf file is rewritten trashing the updates done and again rendering the system to perform name resolutions.
Anyone have suggestions on how to get yast-dns-server from interferring with the configuration file? I tried just uninstalling the package, but then bind doesn't even start up on boot up.
I'm encountering a strange problem. I need to open and forward all UDP and TCP ports related to VoIPtelephony (5000:32000) in the Suse 11.1 server that's acting as router/firewall in our setup. The ports must redirect to a Asterisk server in the local network. (This server has the IP adress 192.168.0.3)I've opened ports in Yast (Firewall>Ports>Advanced) and putted in some masquerading rulesirewall>Masquerading):0/0,192.168.0.3,tcp,5000:31000,5000:310000/0,192.168.0.3,udp,5000:31000,5000:31000when I do a nmap localhost I get:Starting Nmap 4.75 at 2010-01-08 16:52 CETInteresting ports on localhost (127.0.0.1):

I had 200 workstation with both Windows XP and SuSe Enterprise Linux. Sometime, a few clients can't get IP address from DHCP with SuSe OS. With the same computer, if I reboot and chose Windows XP, it work fine. The log message or the boot message was "No IP Address yet ...backgrounding". I tried to reconfig network device, restart services, change another port, change another line LAN, set static IP Address .... but there's no luck for me.
I've just installed opensuse 11.2 with the network installation iso. During the installation, it has got the IP via DHCP without any problem, and I has downloaded all the needed packets without problems... But when the installation finish.I have no network connection It's strange, because I have IP address, I get the IP from the DHCP server, and I can see the IP addreess if I do "ifconfig", the default route and even the DNS servers in the resolv.conf file; but I cannot ping my gateway (that is the DHCP server as well!!), I cannot ping anything in my network and either anything in internet. I see a network error at the start, but it finally gets the ip address. In the dmesg, the last message repeats over and over. The machine is a Hyper-V virtual machine, but as I said... I worked very well during the installation, I don't know what is going on. I've tried to reinstall, but it doesn't make any difference
I would like to build a centralized address book for my SOHO server. Is that possible without the use of openLDAP (I would like to avoid that)?My clients will be:Thunderbird, KMail (for KDE 3.5) and webmail.If so, do you have any suggestions/Howtos?
once upon a time i manually entered my ISP's DNS servers in /etc/resolv.conf Now i have changed ISP, my old DNS setting are still present even though i have edited my resolv.conf file to my new ISP's DNS servers. Internet still works fine, i just want to use my new ISP's DNS as my old ISP will be closing its doors very soon. Am i doing something wrong, or better put.forgot to edit another file..? I did do this a while ago, so i apologise in advance for my incompetence. I'm stilling running 11.1 / Router has DHCP configured. my resolv.conf file is below
Code: cat /etc/resolv.conf ### /etc/resolv.conf file autogenerated by netconfig! # # Before you change this file manually, consider to define the # static DNS configuration using the following variables in the # /etc/sysconfig/network/config file: # NETCONFIG_DNS_STATIC_SEARCHLIST
I want to set my desktop IP address to always be 192.168.1.2. The NetworkManager connects to the network automatically and the IP address is assigned randomly. I can set up another connection in NetworkManager and always change over. But is there any way to make the default eth0 interface to be permanently set to a certain address (using NetworkManager, not ifup)?
I installed openSuse 11.4 (KDE). It was excellent - everything was working great except for Subversion which use to work fine on 11.3 (command line is broken on 11.4, Eclipse/Subclipse works fine on both).
Subversion kept going to the proxy server instead of going directly to our internal Subversion server. I tried (1.) setting the proxy settings in Yast with excluding for our Subversion server, (2.) tried adding the usual settings in ~/.subversion/servers (which worked fine in 11.3). I could not check out on the command line from the local server, I can check out from external servers, eg: Google.
(I installed from the live CD download. I think this is using something some plasma widget thing for the network management.) Why is Subversion not using the usual ~/.subversion/servers file for its settings in 11.4 (KDE)? What is it using and how can I make it not use the proxy server? (Someone else mentioned his Subversion only started working after he used some Chrome plug-in to change the proxy settings but had no idea why?)
i have a big problem y have to make an alias for the eth0 interface, i made it with yast and my alias was eth0:1, first, if i try to shutdown the interface i cant it give an error and tell me that the interface dont exist and the second threat is if i can put a default gateway for this alias something like this in other distributions:
route add 18.104.22.168 gw 192.168.28.201 dev eth0:1
I just set up a new router for our home office. I've enabled traffic logging, and I'd like to have the logs emailed to me. However, in order to configure email-notification, the router needs and outgoing mail server. Forgive me, but I don't really understand the terminology being used here. I've googled this a bit, but I'm not sure I now what "outgoing" vs "incoming" mean in the context. I tried using my gmail account as the outgoing mail server (smpt.gmail.com) but it requires TTLS encryption, and there's no option for that on my router.
So I figured I'd setup a simple mail server on my local network. I have a dedicated server machine, so I'd just configure a mail server there. But I got stumped at the first input box (in the yast module):"Outgoing Mail Server".That's what I wanted to use this server for. What is this "outgoing mail server"? I understand it in a normal emai context (I think) but this is confusing me. I've read through the HowTo on the openSUSE wiki, but it still doesn't answer this question.Isn't there some way to have a simple, local mail server (without MX records and the like) so I can send email from a local machine?
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 couple of openSUSE 11.2 machines and each is directly connected to the Internet (they are not behind a router, firewall, etc). I want them to be able to communicate without any firewall restrictions, but keep the firewall rules for all other IP addresses. Is this possible? the software package I'm trying to use randomly chooses a port to use in the range of 32768-61000 and I don't feel comfortable having a port range that wide open on both machines.
