Ubuntu Networking :: Creating A Simple Workgroup Network

May 11, 2010

I am using an Ubuntu 64 bit desktop. I need to create a network (the way you create a workgroup in windoz). I have two other machines running Ubuntu also and all connected to a 3-Com switch through ethernet. I would prefer not to use DHCP, and just have a simple network where I can share resources like drives and printers.

Mar 23, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10, and am getting the following error when I attempt to access the HADEN workgroup on my Windows network via Samba: Unable to mount location - Failed to retrieve share list from server. I ran the following command:

On my Windows XP machine, I can see the Ubuntu directory and can access files on it. I just can't access the Windows workgroup from Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Network - Setting Up The Unbutu PCs To Browse The Workgroup

Dec 30, 2010

I have a home network with Ubuntu (3 PC) Windows (XP 3, 7 1 vista 1) and Lacie networked drive. I have successfully edited fstab to mount the lacie drive at startup on my main ubuntu PC and it works a treat. My problem is setting up the Unbutu PCs to browse the workgroup. This was working but now (since my last update of Unbutu I think) I get prompted for a password and no matter what I do it does not let me browse.

Now I have read a few things on Samba and do not have the time or ability to become a network engineer. All I want to do is is have on my Ubuntu the same browsing ability that seems to come out of the box in Windows.

Server :: Joining A Samba Domain/Workgroup From A Remote Network?

Oct 29, 2010

I have an OpenSuSe Server configured with DNS, Samba (PDC + WINS), LDAP, Squid All this is in a hybrid scenario with other OpenSuse acting as clients and some Windows 7 also as clients. Everything works perfect. Both systems are able to join and authenticate in the Samba server very smoothly.

My problem is that in my workspace I have several different subnets/VLANS. So I have another OpenSuSe client here that needs to join the domain and authenticate with the samba server, but he just cant find it via the Windows Domain Membership setup screen (where I usually configure the others).

The server can pe pinged, and it does resolv local domain names. It seems the problem is that I have no place to configure a PDC/WINS server in Linux Client. It only asks me for the domain to join, and then it doesnt find it (Im guessing this happens because it cant receive the broadcasts from the server network).

Is there any way to declare the Samba/PDC/WINS server on the client side?

OpenSUSE Network :: Unable To Ping The Default Gateway When Using Custom Settings - Unreachable Network

Jul 17, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE Network :: Using As A Network Gateway - Renew DHCP Lease

Jul 15, 2010

Why trying to avoid ranting about my Linksys router, I'll try and keep things short. I have a Linksys router in which the default firmware was terrible and would not correctly renew its DHCP lease. After getting feed up with that I flashed dd-wrt on the router and now it works better but randomly DNS queries would stop being resolved. To rule out the chances that it is my ISPs DNS servers I switched my DNS to openDNS, same problem happens (although I have to admit openDNS is a lot better than what my ISP has).

Anyways I'm about feed up with it and about an inch away from drop kicking the thing out my window. To avoid that I figured I will give it one more change and instead of using my Linksys as my network gateway I'll move all of that to my home server, and make the Linksys just an wireless AP. Besides setting up DHCP, DNS, and iptables on the server is there anything else I will need to know and setup on the server to make this work?

Side note anyone using openSUSE for DHCP know if setting up reserved IPs for certain MAC address is possible?

OpenSUSE Network :: Network Manager Requires To Enter Password Every Time - Login To Unlock Password Keyring?

Jan 29, 2009

I've tried Ubuntu, Arch, and most recently Fedora but the SUSE GNOME environment blows everything else away!

The only problem (so far) is that Network Manager requires you to enter your password every time you login to unlock the password keyring. I want to disable this.

I think some distros disable the prompt by using the login password to unlock the keyring, but I use auto-login (if that makes a difference).

Slackware :: Cannot Connect To Network Gateway

Mar 9, 2010

Right now I cannot ping to my default gateway. The machine also has SuSE installed on a separate partition. Networking with the same parameters runs fine in that installation.

I use a troubleshooting checklist for situations like this:
- network troubleshooting checklist
- (case of wired connection with static ip)
- make sure net cable is well plugged in on both sides. CHKD.
- make sure ifconfig eth0 details the static IP you want set and that the iface is running (this stage is quite a head start if you've got to it. It would suggest that you have rc.inet1.conf set up properly. CHKD.
- HAL checked against eth0, and it also specifies eth0 for this interface.
- no problem pinging to
- type "route" and see if your default gateway comes up. SEMI-CHK: it does come up but takes a long while .. that's bad sign. It still means your rc.inet1.conf is OK, but here's something else up.
- check /etc/resolv.conf for your nameservers .. just in case some over-zealous program has decided to overwrite it. CHKD, all OK .. I use the google nameservers and

Despite using what I thought were decent tools of the trade, if I unplug the cable they give the same output!

I am looking for some advice on how best to lock down our office network to keep our employee's from wasting time on sites like facebook and ...... This will be my first time setting up a server as a gateway in a production environment so I thought I should get some suggestions on what the best packages would be to do this.

I essentially need to lock down our network so that i can monitor what everyone is doing on the Internet and block it if needed. it doesn't have to be web based or have a bunch of gui's, im fine with command line, configs and log files, but it would be nice.

I'm interested in commercial products as well as long as they are linux based.

Is the gateway doing something strange?

Networking :: Adding Route To Dedicated Network Behind Gateway

Mar 23, 2011

My workstation is on a network, let's say I'm opening up an openVPN Tunnel to a test environment in my company, receiving a lot of routes to this network (address range 172.xx.yy.0). Everything is working fine so far. In this test environment I placed a number of virtual systems having their own private network ( I have one machine in this virtual cluster which is able to forward incoming IP traffic to the others.

When I login to this gateway system, using the 172.xx.yy.zz address, I can logon to the others using the 10.99.aa.bb addresses. Fine so far. But I have to be able to call these machines with the addresses from my laptop. So I tried to add a route like:
route add -net netmask gw 172.xx.yy.zz

Unfortunately I received an error messages:
SIOCADDRT: No such process

According to the entries in other forum articles (Google helps in most cases), I have to add a host route first:
route add -host 172.xx.yy.zz gw 172.well.defined.dest

Networking :: Unable To Set Gateway When Second Network Adapter Fitted

Feb 12, 2010

When a second network adapter is fitted, the boot script fails to configure the default gateway. Here's from /var/log/messages with DEBUG_ETH_UP="yes" configured for the boot script Code: Feb 13 10:22:23 ps1 logger: /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1: /sbin/route add default gw metric 1 Feb 13 10:22:23 ps1 logger: SIOCADDRT: No such process

After boot the same command failed with the same message when done by root logged in via ssh but succeeded when run from the console After removing the second network adapter, the boot script is able to configure the gateway.

EDIT: or not. The problem now seems intermittent Now with only the onboard network adapter the same "SIOCADDRT: No such process" error is logged during boot and the "/sbin/route add default gw" command fails at the console too. Am experimenting with disabling the onboard adapter and fitting the NIC.

EDIT 2: definitely intermittent. Just rebooted with no hardware changes; same error during boot and route -n showed no default gateway but "/sbin/route add default gw" worked.
