I have just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my work computer. We have numerous machines on our Network, on Windows 7, I could never see the network machines listed but I could connect to individual machines simply by typing it's name in the address bar of the file explorer, such as://COMPUTER-NAMEWhen I connected my mac, I could access other computer's files using Apple + K smb://10.0.1.xxx
Hey I just installed linux on my computer and it will not connect to any wireless networks, it will detect them and say try to connect but for some reason wont. It does connect just fine to a wired network.
cannot connect to my window computer using open SuSe
I am attempting to connect to my Windows Computer via a wired network on a sky router. When I tried with PClinuxOS it configured automatically. With the latest version of open SuSe 13.1this is quite a bit different. I have got as far as the network being auto and active with an Icon showing on the taskbar. However when I click on the Windows network Icon SuSe tyies to locate my Computer but then comes back with " failed to reteive share list from server. This is as far as I can get after several hours of trying.
I have the following problem:I have to networks in remote places.I have an opnvpn client in one network that connects to the the router (openvpn server).My question is,can i connect the network where the openvpn client is,throught the computer with the client to the other network.If yes,how? (please make it an idiot proof anwser because i have limited knowledge about iptables). I was thinking like forwarding (the router in the network with the openvpn client is also firewalling with iptables) the request of the ip class of the openvpn network to the computer with the client,which masquarades the interface
My wifes networked computer connected to the network just fine when it was Win XP. Now that Ive converted it to 10.04 (completely) it can see the network, but it just wont connect to it. I had no problem converting my computer to Ubuntu and it sees the network and accesses it great. Files, folders and hard drives are all shared. So, one computer connects great, the other does not.**I dont know what to do at this point.Here is the layout:My Comp (10.04) ---------......Main Network Comp (XP)Wife Comp (10.04) -------/The main network computer is XP as it has software on it we need that does not work in Wine. The main computer will have to stay XP. I cannot get my wifes computer to connect to the main system, although mine connects just fine. I dont know what the problem is. Her computer sees the network, but when trying to connect, it times out and says unable to connect.
i want to find ip address of other computer which are connected in LAN..suppose ther are 5 compter in LAN and i want to find ip of all remaining 4 computer using my computer only in command or any other way is ther....
I just started with my linux opensuse. I always used windows, but i changed to linux. With windows you always could easily connect with command promp to a shared file on a other intern computer. How can i do this with opensuse?
I'm trying to connect to another computer in my network via qpid-config(which is running qpid server). Here is where I follow the instructions [URL].. I can connect to qpid server(which is running on the network) via JMX Management Console which is gui version of what I'm to accomplish from console/unix shell. I can connect and read messages from queue(s) from this server so it means there is no problem with network or whatever. I'm running Fedora Core 13, here is the following combinations I've tried so far with qpid-config so I can run qpid-tool and some other commands :
Code: qpid-config -a localhost, 192.168.1.2:8999, guest/guest@qpid-server qpid-config -a guest/guest@qpid-server 192.168.1.2:8999 qpid-config -a qpid-server, 192.168.1.2:8999, qpid-server:8999, guest/guest@qpid-server qpid-server is added to /etc/hosts as hostname for 192.168.1.2
Had anyone anything similar to this maybe I'm missreading the instructions(although they are pretty straight forward), I've spend so much time on this and just stuck now.
I can connect to the internet through wifi, but I cannot connect to anything on my network. I have a printer and a NAS, so I would really like for this to work again. I have a dell laptop with a Broadcom card.
I am currently trying to upkeep and use my recently deceased fathers ubuntu machines, but as of 6 months ago I had never used Ubuntu or anything like it. I'm not trying to do all that much with it but a few days ago one of the machines lost its ability to connect to the internet, whereas every other machine in the house connects through the router just fine (wireless and ethernet.) I believe i've been able to diagnose part of the problem, the computer cannot connect to a DNS, but I have no idea as how to go about fixing it. My knowledge of Ubuntu is limited to just a few terminal commands. This computer is the one we use to network all of our printers and there are also some critical files on this machine that I need.
I have Ubuntu 9.10 setup on a test box. I am able to connect to my Win XP box shares but I cannot connect to my Win 7 (64 bit) box I get the usual 'Unable to mount location'. I can get to the Win 7 share from my other Win box so it is a valid share. I also cannot connect via the Remote desktop viewer. I am afraid that if I cannot get this going my Ubuntu experiment i over before it started.
Here's a strange one. On my internal network, there are two WinBlows boxes, both connected to my Linux Router/Firewall. Yesterday, I needed to download a file from http://www.freebsd.org. The 1st machine I tried, would not connect from FireFox. When I tried, on the 2nd, it connected immediately. So, I did all the usual "stuff" on the 1st one. Re-booted, as it's WinBlows, cleared browser cache, etc. etc. It still wouldn't connect. BTW, connecting to other web sites was no issue. Just FreeBSD.
So, just for grins, I ran a traceroute from both machines, and here's where it gets freaky. Here's the traceroute from the working machine code...
i have a computer at another house that i would like to controll from my house (both run ubuntu lucid lynx) how do i connect to the other computer using the viewer and remote server pre-installed in ubuntu
I recently fixed an annoying problem and I thought it would be nice to share my solution here. The problem was that after a cycle of suspend/resume, Network Manager would only auto-connect to the same network as it was previously connected to. So, for example, if I suspended my laptop at home, and then I went to school and resumed it, it would try to connect to the home network, and then just give up. It would not connect to the school network unless I explicitly told it to.irst, I'll describe the fix. If you're having this problem, you can this. Copy the following:
I have used ubuntu in the past but had a lot of hardware issues with it and unfortunately moved back to windows (( BUT i have tried Ubuntu again and all seems to work great except wifi My wifi connection is sort of working because when i run SUDO IWLIST SCAN it does pull up all available networks. But in the network manager icon on the panel i left click but i see no networks and can't connect to anything. I WOULD LOVE TO keep Ubuntu and use it permanently but I must get wifi working or else this won't be possible.
I recently put Linux on a Thinkpad T40 I got. The wireless card works out of the box--I can see nearby networks. However, I can't connect to mine. network-manager would try (spin spin spin), fail, ask for the password, and then go back to the beginning and repeat indefinitely. This happened to me on a different computer, and on that one all I had to do was use wicd instead of network-manager. So I installed wicd, but it's not working either--it hangs at "Obtaining IP address".
I've found many, many threads with people who had the same problem, but none of their fixed worked for me.
I also tried to get wifi going manually, using this guide, but that didn't work.
I have a Verizon Droid Eris, an Android phone that has not yet been rooted. Due to the lack of root capabilities the only way to tether my phone is through PDANet for Android. Unfortunately there is no Linux version of PDANet, so the only computer I can tether my phone with is my laptop which is running Vista.
I also have a desktop running Koala, which is ultimately the computer I want to get connected. I'm hoping that there is some way I can use Internet Connection Sharing on the laptop to accomplish my goal, but I haven't had much luck so far. I don't have a crossover cable either so I would prefer to connect the laptop and the desktop via my Belkin F5D7230-4 wireless router.
I recently setup motion on one of my computers with a USB camera. On that computer if I type [URL] I can see my live video. If however I type [URL] on that computer or any other on my wireless network, I get a page cannot be displayed. I checked that UFW was disabled and I am able to ping the motion computer from any other computer on my network. Also I am not sure if it matters but I do have apache installed on my motion computer as well. why I cant view my live video from different computers I am using Ubuntu 10.4 on all computers
I have a built-in gigabit Ethernet card which is connected to a router. Router's IP address is 192.168.2.1 My IP is 192.168.2.161 (eth0) I also have a Nokia N900 connected via USB and its IP is 192.168.1.1. It serves as a second router and on that interface (usb0) my IP is 192.168.1.2 N900 is also connected to a wireless network. Router of that network has the IP 10.0.0.1 and N900's IP is 10.0.0.50 (wlan0) My problem is that I want to reach a server at 10.0.0.7 from my computer. Is there a way I can do that?
I have two computers and I'm trying to get them to talk to each other, but after I installed Fedora 14 on this computer, my other computer can't connect to this.
Same with DAAP I'm using rhythmbox to both broadcast and listen to the DAAP, and the rhythmbox on the remote computer cant connect here either. ssh and VNC are working on the other computer as well, I can connect to other computers using ssh on both computers, and I can VNC over to the other computer without any problems, its the traffic going myway that seems to be hitting a roadblock. is it possible that since I installed a different system (was Ubuntu Natty before, and I was using all three services before I installed Fedora), I need to do something on my remote computer so that this won't crop up?
