Red Hat / Fedora :: Putting Computers Together On A Router?

Jun 28, 2011

Are there ways to link computers together with a linksys router to get increased performance? Can I create this cooperative supercomputer on the same router that my internet runs through? Can I run Windows on top of this supercomputer to get increased performance in the audio field where I need it most?

Ubuntu Networking :: CAN Connect To Other Computers But Not Router Or Internet - 10.04

Jan 3, 2011

- CAN connect to other computers - ssh and vnc over the home network (via D-link 524 router).
- CAN get an IP address via DHCP
- CANNOT get internet connections - including router at
- CANNOT even ping router (but I get an IP address - weird)
- Other computers on the network CAN access internet
- Live CD could not access internet

results of ifconfig



I am wondering if his ISP could be doing this - he has received a warning letter about bitorrent. Could the isolate a single computer behind a NAT router?

This is the results from dmesg:


I have tried:

- to set proxy settings as "Direct internet connection"
- disconnecting power to (including 30 sec wait): modem, router, computer + unplugging ethernet from computer
- Live CD (he only had an old one 7.10) which also didn't connect to internet, but as I am remote, I couldn't do any more. We are downloading a 10.04.1 iso for him to burn tomorrow, and will try that again.
- Uninstalled Crashplan which was the last software that we installed (and it was working ok).

I am currently ssh'ing into another computer on the network that IS working, and then ssh'ing into my Dad's computer - including a VNC session (tunneled through both machines and router).

Ubuntu Networking :: Giving Internet To Other Computers Without Router?

May 5, 2011

If I have a desktop with a USB wifi adapter connected to the internet through an ethernet cable, is it possible to create a wireless network using the adapter that will allow other users to connect to the internet through mine? I'm in a fairly low-tech place for the next few weeks and getting a router isn't likely.

If it's possible, anyone have links or instructions for how to do it?

OpenSUSE Network :: Wired Router - Transfer Files Between Local Computers

Jun 4, 2011

Should I be able to transfer files between computers wired to the same router? Is the router bridging function used to transfer data between wired computers? I just got DSL and I'm new to networking. I have openSuse 11.4 on two computers plugged into a Belkin router. The internet connection to my ISP works from either computer. If I ping $HOSTNAME from either computer, the hostnames are different, but the IP address is the same which is that of my ISP. I only have the one router, but it has a bridging option. I don't know if it can do both bridging and routing simultaneously.

Networking :: Building System Router - Can't Access Computers On Other Side Of Network / Fix It?

May 20, 2009

I have built a linux router with a pc having two network cards. I am running ubuntu 8.10.

I have enabled forwarding on the router. One network ( connected to eth0 and another ( is connected to eth1.

The interfaces have addresses and

On any side side of the network, I can ping both interfaces on the router.

However when I ping a machine on the other side of the network, I get 100% packet loss.

I have not touched iptables on the router or any machines.

Fedora :: Putting Custom Xterms On Toolbar?

Nov 19, 2010

I switched to fedora to learn. I also purchased several vps (virtual private servers) so I could hack away and not destroy my pc. well I would like to do the following...let me call one server A and the other server B

Put to terminals on my top panel. when I click on A I will automatically via ssh be taken to the server A online and when I click on B (the second xterm icon) I would like to be taken to vps B. Ideally I would also like to bypass my password and just go in a root to both as again these are just things I got to learn on.. I don't know where to start but it sure seems like something that would be possible. Of course I don't care if I am clicking on the terminal icon or a program that just launches the appropriate terminal..

Fedora Installation :: Booting Without Putting Grub In The MBR?

Jan 17, 2011

I am shortly getting a new computer, It will arrive with Windows 7 on one disk and will have a second disk, on which I will install Fedora. In the past, when I've set up a dual boot system, I always used the standard configuration with the first part of grub put in the MBR. But this time I would like to put grub entirely in the Linux disk and then use Windows 7's boot loader to boot. I set up another computer that way where the disk originally came with Vista. But in that case, I set it up the standard way and then changed it afterwards to use the Vista boot loader.

This time, I want to set it up when installing Linux so grub is entirely on the second Linux disk. So until I manage to figure out how to get the Windows boot loader to do the job, I need a separate way to boot Linux, say from a CD with grub on it. But that CD should have the appropriate grub configuration on it. The easiest way I know to create such a CD is from Fedora, but there is the problem that I first need to get into Fedora to do it. I can think of several ways to approach that problem, i.e., using the installation disc in rescue mode or using some raw grub booter created from my old system. But I would like to keep things as simple and direct as possible, since otherwise I'm sure there will be false starts and a lot of fiddling.

So could someone direct me to some simple instructions to do what I want as quickly as possible. In particular, are there any options to do it in the installation process?

Fedora :: Putting Kickstart File Onto USB Flash Drive

Dec 1, 2009

Here is a way to prepare a USB flash drive to save your kickstart file to it, and then read the kickstart file from the USB drive during a new Fedora installation.A USB flash drive is recognised by the Linux kernel as just another hard drive.This is how I set up my USB flash drive to use it to store my kickstart file on.You will need a working Linux system to set up the USB drive.

Fedora Installation :: Putting /boot Inside LVM With Grub2?

May 22, 2011

I have just converted from using Arch Linux for the last year to using Fedora 14. So far I have been having a blast but I really enjoy the idea of putting /boot inside an LVM container and that is how I had my Arch system built. So I wanted to do a learning experience and did a standard install on my 60GB SSD. Which ended up with a 500MB /boot outside LVM, a ~30GB / and ~30GB /home inside LVM. Now I really like spreading things out onto different LV's that I can resize but for now I am focusing on getting /boot and grub2 working. So after the install I did a complete backup with Clonezilla to a spare drive and set to work. I shrunk /home's LV to 10GB to give me plenty of space to work with and created boot_lv inside LVM at 128MB.

So here is my first question:After 2 hours trolling through the forums, documentation and blogs I believe that the ideal size for any /boot is 512MB due to during pre-upgrades Fedora loads a bunch of data to /boot. Would I be correct in both assuming this size and the reasoning behind this?After creating this LV I did another Clonezilla clone of the drive and got back into the Fedora install. From their I moved over all the data in /boot to my boot_lv mounted on /mnt/newboot and unmounted /boot. Then mounted /boot_lv in its place and installed grub2 and gettext ( <--- I think? It needed something like this) and did a grub2-install, grub2-mkconfig and grub2-setup all with commands I do not remember nor documented due to how many changes I have made and times I had to re-image the box from messup's and failures. So in the end can anyone point me in the direction of a nice guide on putting Fedora 14 completely in LVM which seems not to exist in Google and Fedora Forums ( to my knowledge.) Even a set of commands for taking a fresh install and doing.

EDIT: Today I managed to get Debian 6 to have /boot moved into LVM no problem. I documented it very well and plan to implement it on Fedora which I do greatly hope it works.EDIT 2: SUCCESS!!! Took me all weekend to get it working in Fedora but it bloody works! My notes are not the best so I am imaging it right now and am going through step by step again tomorrow and documenting it all on my laptop and writing a tutorial for the Guides section of this forum. It's kinda funny that the only thing holding me back was something rather stupid

Fedora Networking :: Not All Computers Shown In Smbtree?

Apr 21, 2009

I have 5 or 6 computers on my home network. Most of them are wired connections, a few wireless. All the Linux machines run Samba and they are all configured identically. Workgroup name is the same on all, user=share on all and they all have a share or 2. I can ping any one from any other but they don't all show up when I run smbtree, usually from my wireless laptop. Maybe I should run it on all the Linux boxes and see what the result is, but I've never done that. My question is, why do they not all show up? One of them never shows in the list. The Windows boxes always do.

Fedora :: 11 Laptop Will Not See Other Computers On The Wireless Network?

Oct 10, 2009

I have a mainly windows house with a notebook running Fedora 11. The problem is that when this computer is on the wireless network it shows no computers on the network. It gives me the error that it can't retrieve the shared list from server. However when I am using it on the wired part of the same network it will see all of the other computers. I was wondering if anyone here could shed light on what might be going on. I am not sure if it is a setting on the computer or something to do with the router. However I don't think it has anything to do with the router because I have windows laptops that run on the same wireless access point and have no problem

Fedora Networking :: Can't Communicate Fully With Other Computers ?

Oct 20, 2009

I downloaded and installed a new copy of Fedora 11 last week onto a new computer (hereafter "proximate"). I also have a remote computer without a monitor running an outdated version of Red Hat Linux (hereafter "remote"). To manage the processes on remote graphically, I ssh from proximate into remote; this connection succeeds without incident in transmitting text (including commands) between the two computers; however, the command "gnome-session" returns: (gnome-session:15789): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

(The numbers apparently represent the process identifier and vary from instance to instance.) A similar warning (and no accompanying graphics) occurs whenever I attempt to start any graphical user interface from remote via ssh from proximate. The issue almost certainly lies with proximate; remote successfully communicated graphics to the ancient box that proximate replaces.

Interestingly, I cannot communicate via ssh from remote to proximate (within a secure shell from proximate to remote). If I execute /usr/sbin/sshd on proximate as root, then I can login, but even then I cannot execute any commands.

Consider the following output:

If I execute ssh -vvv proximate from remote to proximate, then I get a lengthy output that ultimately ends with "debug1: Exit status 254."

What must I do to communicate both text and graphics among my computers?

Fedora :: How To Share Gnote Notes Between Two Computers

General :: Share Files Between 2 Fedora 14 Computers

May 8, 2011

Networking Problem Fedora 14 I am trying to share files between 2 Fedora 14 computers , a desktop and a laptop, both located on my local DSL server. The laptop sees its public files and the public files folder on the desktop computer - looks fine. The desktop computer acts differently. Both systems show an entry of "unknown type" in the directory listing, for the public files directory. But whereas a right click on the directory entry on the laptop offers "open" the same operation on the desktop computer offers "open gedit". When I double click the entries on the laptop, entries appear on the main screen. If I double click the entries on the main screen, the directory contents are displayed. But, if I doubleclick the directory entries on the desktop computer 1- I get a black box that says there has been a crash in gvfs-1.6.6-1.fc14 and an error message box tells me Dbus error org.freedesktop.DBus.ERROR.NoReply: Message did not received a reply.

Fedora Networking :: Static DHCP Works On All Computers

Oct 18, 2009

I'm pulling my hair out to figure out what's gone wrong. I have a small home network with a router and 4 computers, 3 linux boxes and 1 windoze machine.The windoze machine and 2 of the linux boxes (newer ones, one with FC11 and the other with Ubuntu Hardy) are using the router's "Set Static IP" option just fine. However an older FC5 machine I have always gets its IP assigned randomly. As this is the machine I ssh into from overseas via a Dynamic DNS, this is a huge frustration when the power goes off or I need to restart the machine. It's usually but sometimes and occasionally other numbers as well. It _should_ be As near as I can tell, I'm doing everything the same between the machines. The router config is very simple and works for the other systems so I suspect I may have a legacy tweak that I did years ago that's causing the problem.

Anyone know what I can try? I'm afraid I'm not a networking guru (ahem, wouldn't be posting if I were!) so things like "check the this" will be more helpful if there's a clear example. "Check the this...emacs /etc/thisfile/config" and see if XYZ option is TRUE" is far more useful. Again, many thanks. If none of the systems were working right then it would be totally different...but 3 seem to work just fine and happily get their assigned static IPs. It's the one non-conformist that's the trouble...

Fedora Networking :: Share Between 3 Computers Office Jet 5610 All In One

Jan 29, 2010

As the Subject mentions I have an Office Jet 5610 All in One Printer that I am trying to share between 3 Computers.

Computer Number 1: Laptop running Fedora 12 with the Gnome desktop. This is the computer to which the printer is physically connected to. I have no issues printing from this printer at the laptop. I have installed both samba and cups. I can access cups online and manage the printer from the Laptop with no issues I have checked to make sure sharing was turned on and in the laptop i have made sure that internet sharing with the printer is turned on.

Computer Number 2: Desktop running Sabayon 5.1 with the Gnome desktop. I can see the printer and it tells me that its ready. I try to print a simple test page and i get error: Destination Printer not accepting Jobs. I'm not sure if this is a Sabayon issue a Cups issue or a Fedora Issue.

Computer Number 3 Desktop running that Redmond Crap (Wifes Computer) Yeah Redmond wont even find the network printer much less print to it.

I forgot to mention that i have checked my firewall to make sure IPP was allowed and Samba was allowed so i do know that these are not the issues. I do have SELInux installed and running though don't know if this could be the culprit or not.

The Problem: So far I've not been able to get an internet connection from any computer connected to the HUB. I currenty have Fedora 13 on PC1 but have also tried with both Ubuntu 10.04 & Debian Lenny. I am open to using any Linux based distro on PC1 as long it has a Gnome Desktop. eth0 on PC1 can be Static or Dhcp, but I would prefer to set Static IPs on eth1 & all of the Client PCs

To the best of my knowledge I have enabled ipv4 forwarding in sysctl.conf (& some other changes);


All changes I made to the Firewall (all other Firewall settings are still at default, no custom rules added yet);

Router is set up to assign dhcp from &

At the moment I have only 1 PC attached to the HUB. It's Ubuntu 10.04 (PC2)
It's details are;

Thus Far I can't ping 192.168.XXX.103 from PC1 & I can't ping 192.168.XXX.101 from PC2. (unreachable) I have an internet connection on PC1 (of course)
