I do not quite understand how the virtual interface wlan0:avahi appeared. My guess was, my request "sudo dhclient wlan0" failed to get a valid ip, although I did not get any error message from running that command. I executed "sudo dhclient wlan0" again, but still no error message or network connection.
Later today, I tried to connect to a public wireless network. Still got the same error. But when I reboot my machine, no such problems.
why my new Ubuntu 10.04 computer won't automatically advertise afp thru avahi to the network? This is a new install of Ubuntu 10.04, I downloaded and installed newest version of Netatalk, and the Avahi daemon. Both installed with no issues. (I followed instructions from articles on here) I can manually login to Ubuntu afp share from my iMac, by going to "Go to Server" and typing in the ip 10.0.1.3 and putting in the Ubuntu username and password. I just can't get it to advertise or broadcast itself to the network like it is supposed to using netatalk and avahi. I've followed all of the tutorials I can find on this, but nothing works. Even if I issue the command to restart avahi daemon, Ubuntu still isn't seen in the iMac's finder window? Because I can manually login to it, I am assuming that netatalk is working properly. I've even tried to issue the command to restart netatalk first, then restart avahi, but still nothing?
I am sharing some folders from my Ubuntu machine, using Netatalk and Avahi, over my network.I access these folders from my Mac using the AFP protocol.When all is well, my Ubuntu folders show up in Finder on the Mac and I can connect to them.But at random intervals, the Ubuntu folders will disappear. Sometimes they reappear a short while later.At other times, they wont appear until I go to my Ubuntu machine, and re-save (even if i don't change anything) the file:/etc/avahi/services/afpd.service.
the PC just hangs for ever. No mouse movement, ctrl-alt-del, nothing.
I have downloaded a Linux driver from Realtek but it will not compile. I have the latest kernel-devel, headers, and gcc. I can post compiler errors if anybody would like. They're all apparently to do with missing parameters.
Having trouble with wireless and FC11, eth0 is ok. When I try to activate wlan0 through system-config-network 1.5.97, I get msg: Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Determining IP information for wlan0... failed. This is a compaq laptop.
Commands as root works well when normal user is logged in and connected to net via KDE 4 network manager, but after logoff network is gone. And it is impossible to get it back because command mentioned above stops working!
I can connect to the wireless at my school, but the connection drops frequently and regularly. Network Manager still shows bars indicating the network strength and shows that it's connected to the network in the dropdown. Selecting the network again causes it to indicate that it disconnects and reconnects. At this point I have wireless until the connection drops again. Possibly relevant details: This is the Purdue PAL2.0 network, which can be tricky to connect to, particularly for Linux users. It's a hidden network using WPA2 and PEAP. My computer is a Dell Inspiron 1420n laptop, circa August 2007.
I just installed Fedora 13 from the Live CD. FIrst off I read the guide and the first step doesn't even work for me. System>Administration>Network does not exist. If I go to System then Preferences I see a Network Manager but it looks nothing like what these screen shots look like. [url]
No wireless card show up in the wireless tab of Network Manager. How can I fix this since my card is listed in ifconfig and iwconfig. Wifi card is a Zonet zew2500p
I have got Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Inspiron Laptop. Can't get anywhere with wireless network. Tried a few bits of poking it blindly with a stick:
matthew@ubuntu:~$ lshw -C network Warning: you should run this program as super-user. *-network Description: Network controller Product: BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY Vendor: Broadcom Corporation Physical id: 0 Bus info: pci@0000:0c:00.0 Version: 01 Width: 64 bits Clock: 33MHz Capabilities: bus_master cap_list Configuration: driver=b43-pci-bridge latency=0 Resources: irq:17 memory:f69fc000-f69fffff *-network .....
I reckon *-network DISABLED is a problem, I tried sudo ifconfig wlan0 up but that didn't work. The output of that and lspci are on the ubuntu side of my machine. I have also tried pressing my wireless on/off key (F2) but that doesn't work either.
I'm new to this forum site and I was wondering how can I bridge a network between the eth0 and wlan0 connections?my eth0 NIC is a RealTek RTL8111B 10/100/1000 Ethernet Card (OnBoard) and my wlan0 NIC is a RealTek RTL8187B 802.11b/g WiFi USB Adapter Card.Are there any utilities, such as bridge-utils that I can use, except for Firestarter since Firestarter states that the eth0 connection is not established, or do I right-click on the network icon and select Edit Connections and go to Auto eth0 and under the IPv4 Address setting and select Shared to other computers and run a live connection there?The main reason is that I need an Internet connection for my Xbox 360, which is connected to my Linksys WRT54G 802.11b/g Wireless Router, that has DD-WRT firmware installed and 4 WiFi hotspots for any wireless device, such as my PSP, DS, DS Lite, Wii, Laptop(s), my brother's PC (needs a WiFi card), and my dad's PC (needs either a WiFi card or an Internet connection from my brother's computer to my dad's PC)

I have a few ubuntu machines in my house, 1 mythtv backend server with other services as well, 2 mythbuntu frontends boxes hooked up to tv's etc. I wanted to push the audio from my laptop out over pulseaudio to the machine connected to the AV equipment.
I could not see any other pulseaudio sinks in padevchooser... this lead me down the road to investigating avahi.
When I run avahi-browse on my laptop (hydrogen) it only returns the services published from itself:
My laptop has vmware on it, and I've changed the vmnet intefaces to not support multicast so avahi ignores them. but I'm still at a loss to why my laptop can't see the other machines on my network with avahi (mdns).
I've got problem with Avahi on my laptop. It can see the other machines and services on the LAN but not it's own local services and I have no idea why. The laptop (hostname: forseti) sports Ubuntu 10.10, installed aavahi-daemon, avahi-dnsconfd and libapache2-mod-dnssd. Firewall is disabled. Other hosts on the LAN are: magni (openSuSE 11.4 with lots of services published and visible from forseti) and freya (Ubuntu 10.10 with gnome-user-share up & running). Forseti can see the other hosts and their services but not itself. The other hosts can't see forseti. Checked both with nautilus and CLI's avahi-browse.
I got a new X201 which is running Ubuntu 10.04. While at home, everything is fine, at work, I encounter some issues with wireless. the signal cuts in and out repeatedly.Here's the output of ping. I set it to ping a server every 90 seconds, 10 times. So this is a snapshot of 15 minutes of network activity...
PING (REDACTED) bytes of data. 64 bytes from (REDACTED): icmp_seq=1 ttl=252 time=1.50 ms 64 bytes from (REDACTED): icmp_seq=2 ttl=252 time=2.13 ms 64 bytes from (REDACTED): icmp_seq=3 ttl=252 time=1.38 ms
Also I tried this (from a 2 year old thread which was most relevant solution I could find):
Changing AVAHI_DAEMON_DETECT_LOCAL=1 to AVAHI_DAEMON_DETECT_LOCAL=0 in /etc/default/avahi-daemon has got rid of the irritating pop-up. Basically, every 5 minutes or so, for a solid 60 seconds or so I get no signal. I've tried updating the kernel, and doing apt-get remove avant-daemon, but still have problems.
I am wondering if it is possible to use avahi to resolve hostnames across a gateway. With gateway I mean a linux box with ip_forward'ing enabled to pass traffic between interfaces. The gateway connects two networks with all hosts running Ubuntu and specifically avahi-daemon. The gateway is not running avahi and I am not able to install it there. The firewall configuration on the gateway is not blocking any traffic between the networks. I am able to send UDP packets from a host on one network to a host on the other.
When I run tcpdump on a host and try to ping that host.local from a machine on the other network I see no traffic. This means that the gateway is not passing the multicast traffic along. Is there any special setup required on the gateway to allow this?
I have a linux domain (FEDORA CORE 1) and two laptop's which are part of my domain with windows xp pro service pack 2.I have given two ip's to both the laptop's being primary as global and secondary as local.I have configured printer in one laptop and shared.Till last week i was accessing that shared printer from my other laptop and every thing was working fine.Last week i formatted one laptop,(which dose not have shared printer) from then onwards i am not able to access my other laptop. I get the following message when i try to accessmy other Laptop,"you might not have permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission there are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request"P.S : If i have only local IP i am able to see both the systems and i am able to access my printer, this problem comes only when i add global IP to both the machines.And also i have stopped the firewall and other things.
In a previous thread I had detailed an issue I was having with avahi not firing up properly at startup.As a bit of background: the services available on the server aren't advertising until I restart the avahi-daemon manually after startup - The syslog shows the daemon starting on boot, but it never seems to access the service file.I was wondering if it is possible that this may be a file permission problem?
I installed the driver for my network card. iwconfig and ifconfig are all responsive to connecting to the network, I'm given an access point address. Then, I try to connect to a website and no dice. ping www.google.com yields no result. What gives?
fedora.local = F14 default mingisapsycho.local = Mac OS X 10.6.4
I want to be able to ssh/scp between these two machines using:
ssh -l login fedora.local and ssh -l login mingisapsycho.local
rather than using IP addresses. Neither of these works, from either of the two machines. This does work between Mac OS machines. And I can ssh if I use IPs. So it seems that by default Avahi is not configured even though it is running? I really don't understand. By "does not work" I mean I get on both machines: ssh: Could not resolve hostname blah.local: Name or service not known
I had one of those random system deaths, so reinstalled squeeze (daily netinst image I think...) on my eee 1000, which uses an rt2860 wireless chip. The new install only installed 2.6.32, which I had been avoiding using because of a few problems, including it dealing with networking slightly differently. I couldn't get it to work - even without encryption - using wicd. Having had a read of [URL]... , I had a look at /etc/network/interfaces, which read; This file describes the network interfaces available on your system and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
ra0 is now called wlan0, as far as I'm aware. I've read in several places that it is best to expunge this file of all references to wifi, so I removed the bottom section (after '# The primary network interface'). I still got nothing. However, if I go ahead and change the 'ra0's to 'wlan0's, it seems to work - wicd connects. Not very familiar with Debian (spent more time on SUSE. Drop your tomatoes - I like it. Any idea what is happening? Is what I'm doing wrong? Conversely, is the file wrong? Should it be reported? Against which package? Including any particular files?
I am also using gnome-NetworkManager. If I left-click on the NetworkManager icon down on the taskbar near the clock it shows "Wired Networks" with eth0 connected, and "Wireless Networks" is blank under the heading, last week I believe it said something like "device unavailable" or something like that.
Network Details: iwconfig Code: lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. [Code]....
I was curious about when the last time I was able to successfully use my wifi so I checked to see in NetworkManger and it just so happend to be that I was on a business trip in Atlanta on a different network then am usually connected to. Don't know if that has to do with anything but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Also, I thought it may have something to do with assigning an IP address static-or-auto but I am not too familiar with NetworkManager to check that.
I am very new to linux.I have a network camera which only has an Ethernet port but no WiFi. Sadly no Ethernet port is available close to the camera.
Therefore I now bought a raspberry pi and installed raspbian to create a bridge into the wireless network, for connecting the camera to the internet.I now played around with the interface- and bridge configuration but I have problems with it.This is how my interfaces file looks like:
(The WiFi is secured with WPA2 Enterprise)
Code: Select all# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
# Please note that this file is written to be used with dhcpcd # For static IP, consult /etc/dhcpcd.conf and 'man dhcpcd.conf' # Include files from /etc/network/interfaces.d: source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d
The WiFi is connection works fine and I am in the internet using the WiFi.But I am wondering about eth0. The network parameters I specified are not the same as the parameters ifconfig tells me.Ip, Broadcast, Mask, nothing is as specified.It would be nice to give the camera a static IP that I can access it always with the same IP from the RaspberryPi.The Raspberry Pi itself gets always a new IP from the WiFi network. How do I get the camera into the internet using the existing connection of the Pi?
currently on an acer aspire 5532, and using mozilla and google chrome. webpages take about 10-12 seconds to load using the ethernet, wifi its about 2-3 seconds. using eth0 loading videos - broadcast yourself. in chrome, will sit at "resolving host" for about 10 seconds before bringing up the page. you would think eth0 is faster than wlan0, but for browsing the web its slower. i tested the speeds at speedtest.net - the global broadband speed test and both wlan0 and eth0 get the max speed my internet provides.i never downloaded drivers for the ethernet card or wifi, they worked so i didn't try to mess with them. but perhaps that is my problem?
I have installed Open SUSE in my DELL server which has 2 broadcom NIC cards, it showing both the NIC cards in Network configuration in YAST ,but it showing as not configured and not connected . Kernel device eth0,wlan0 are not present. In device manager also 2 Broadcom nic cards are detected.
I just installed Fedora 13 on a new Dell XPS desktop and some of the networking files are not created/missing. The computer has Broadcom Gigabit wired card and Asus PCE-N13 wireless card. When I type lspci, I see that Network conroller: RaLink RT2860 and Ethernet controller: Broadcom BCM57780 Gigabit Ethernet. So, somehow they are being detected by the OS, but I am not sure if the drivers are installed or why some of the network files are missng.
