Ubuntu Networking :: Xbox 360 Connection Sharing - DHCP Setup
Jun 17, 2011
I have a similar problem. My ubuntu box is set up as a dhcp router for my Xbox360, my xbox can get ip and DNS information from the computer, but it doesn't seem to get the right info. The ip address it gets assigned is out of the range I've set in etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf.
i have searched and searched for an answer but nothing i've found has worked for me what i have is an old computer with 2 network cards in it the 1 conected to the internet is eth1 one connected to the xbox via crossover cable is eth2, what i'm trying to do is share the internet connection to the xbox using ubuntu,i've tryed alreadyusing the network manager,using firestarter,ip tables,even nat,and all have failedi've been using ubuntu for 4yrs now, and i have always before been able to find answers to my problems by simply googling the answer. but this is one i can't seem to find an answer on.
How do I tell the shared connection that it has a static IP and that I dont want a DHCP on the network?Do I have to set up DHCP on the box with the shared connection, even if that box only runs DHCP for a single IP address being the eth0 that is shared?Or can I tell the shared connection that it has a static IP and still allow network manager to run the shared connection?Or should I specify static IP's for all clients and the shared network manager and install say firestarter on the gateway to run the NAT for the eth0 out to eth1.
I'm still fairly new to Linux so please forgive me if my description of my problem leaves out important information. My problem is centered around using a AT91SAM9G45 development board (DB)on Fedora 10. I have directions on how to setup on my host machine a DHCP server to connect to the development board. I have installed an additional network card (eth1) that will be used exclusively to communicate with my DB.
The DB has been setup with an ethaddr=12:34:56:78:9a:bc and an ipaddr=192.168.251.191.
The following is info from ifconfig for eth1: eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0A:5E:1A:46:1C inet addr:192.168.251.190 Bcast:192.168.251.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::20a:5eff:fe1a:461c/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:38 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
Ive got my laptop hindered up to my xbox 360 it has windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04. i realy want to get rid of windows and the only reason i keep it around is because ics sharing works realy well for connecting to xbox live.
I recently discovered that you can (ics) with ubuntu which is awesome only problem is i cant figure out how to set it up to stop it having moderate NAT so i can play games that require an open NAT. its probably due to the ports not being fowarded properly or somthing and/or the face that my xbox needs a static ip placed out side the routers firewall on the DMZ setting .
Alright, I'm running Ubuntu KK 9.10 and I've probably read every ICS tutorial on ubuntuforums. I'm running wireless internet via a Linksys router and have a LAN card in my system as well.
(lshw -c network)
I tried the easy route with 9.10 (setting my wireless to DHCP and LAN to share connection) and although Ubuntu recognizes the Xbox when its turned on (I get a nice notification saying my wired connection is active) the Xbox gets no internet, and doesn't even recognize the connection. (when I tested the connection it failed before it even hit network...)
ive just installed ubunutu 10.10 and its connected to the internet via a wireless conection. However I would like to share the connection with an xbox 360 connected to the computer via a ethernet cable. I changed the method under ip4 in the auto eth0 wire connection to "shared to other computers" aplyed and restarted, however whenever the 360 tries to connect itll take a while and then say unable to connect. I also tried this using a ps3 and the ps3 says timed out waiting for ip address. Ive doen this on windows by bridging the connection and it worked without the use of a crossover wire. Would I need a crossover wire?
I did search, but could not find a solution.Right I've installed Ubuntu Server 10.10 on an old machine, installed fine and the system is running. I have a windows 7 desktop that is connected to the internet via wireless. The desktop then has an ethernet connection which is shared to the ubuntu server. The network looks like this.
Modem > Router > Desktop > Switch > Ubuntu Server My problem here is that there appears to be no connection from the server to the desktop. The server cannot connect to the internet.
When i ifconfig the ubuntu machine shows.eth0 link encap:Ethernetinet address: 192.168.137.2 Bcast:192.168.137.255 Mask 255.255.255.0 However on the windows desktop (the machine sharing the internet) these are the details for the connection to ubuntu server.ip 169.254.170.50 mask 255.255.255.0
is this a dhcp problem? is my server configured wrong?
I'm trying to share an internet connection between two computers. The one currently online is a HP Presario running Ubuntu 9.10, and connects through a wireless connection. It has an ethernet port, which I'm hoping to use to connect to a Dell Desktop running Windows XP pro SP 3. I'm hoping to make this happen one of two ways.
1. Without having to mess with any DHCP settings. Sadly, I live with my parents, and the router in their room uses DHCP and sets the addresses for all the computers on the network. My parents don't want me screwing with any of the settings on the router. is there a way to just have Ubuntu pass information from the ethernet connection to the wireless connection without having to deal with DHCP.
2. I'm sure this has been explained, but as I'm new to Ubuntu, I will pretty much need step by step instructions to do this part. Sorry to be difficult. Is there a way to have Ubuntu keep the current settings it has on the wireless side (let the router determine it's address and all of that good stuff), but have a DHCP server kick in on the hard-wired side so Internet Connection Sharing has an address to look for on the laptop?
Been trying for a couple days know to get my laptop to work with my 360 so I can use the internet connection from it so I can go online. I access the internet using my Nokia E72(ppp0) and I intend to use the laptop's ethernet port for the 360(eth0).
Tried this out [url] and a bunch of other guides which I can not find right now. Running Debian Testing and have no idea what to do next.
Is there another program I can use to share my movies to my 360? Ive tried setting uShare up numerous times, and always get errors. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and now I can even re-download it.
i have a homework where i have to set up a dhcp server on linux. I am using ubuntu. I tried following: [URL] However after running "sudo apt-get install dhcp3-server" the file "/etc/default/dhcp3-server" does not appear.
I have tried to set up file sharing using ssh, samba with no luck. I now have it set up using NFS the only thing is it is just one way and I need it both ways. I was wondering if I installed the same packages on the other pc if I could make this work both ways.
The command I used on the first pc was: sudo apt-get install nfs-kernel-server nfs-common portmap And on the other pc the command was: sudo apt-get install nfs-common portmap Or is there a better way?
I had my laptop at work for a few days and when I brought it home I couldn't open up web pages any more. I have a DHCP connection (shaw cable).When I plug the chord from the modem into my windows machine I can open up web pages. When I plug it into my ubuntu laptop I can't open up web pages.
I have tried unplugging the modem and restaring my computer.I think that there is some sort of connection because when I open up Network tools it shows that I am continually receiving packets. As soon as I unplug the ethernet wire I stop receiving packets. For some reason I just can't open web pages.I also tryed typing 'sudo ifconfig' and 'sudo dhclient' in a terminal. I don't fully understand what this means but I saw it in another forum.
Trying to set up network sharing between Ubuntu 9.10 and Vista. I already did this with a wired Ubuntu 9.10 desktop and my Vista laptop but for some reason my Ubuntu 9.10 wireless and Vista wireless aren't as easy. They are all on the same workgroup "MAGIC" and I can see my ubuntu shares on the Vista computer but can't see the Vista shares on the ubuntu computer. In ubuntu I go to network>windows network>MAGIC but it times out at the MAGIC workgroup part and says 'unable to mount'.
but no luck I also checked and there isn't a firewall that's in the way.
I have done the ICS in my ubuntu 10.10 according to this article using eth0 connecting to wan router and eth1 connecting to the lan switch. Everything works fine.I have an open vpn connection which have full tunneling through the server. I want the vpn connection to be shared on the lan, and every internet connection will go through the vpn server. If I change the eth0 to tunnel adapter in iptables forwarding rule, will it work?
I decided to forgo my router's DHCP capabilites and try to make a random computer at my home take on the job.
First of all here's my network topology:
I have a cable modem hooked up to eth0 on my linux box, and this is where my internet comes from and works fine.
I also have another ethernet, eth1, which is connected to a wireless router in bridge mode. My end goal is to have my linux box sit between my internal network and the outside world. Thus it will need to act as a DHCP server, a NAT and as a firewall. Right now I'm just focused on the DHCP part.
Here is a copy of my dhcpd.conf file:
My /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd file has:
However the issue is that it is still listening on eth0. and not issuing any leases on my internal network.
What I think is happening is that it's not recognizing the 10.0.1.x subnet because my router is issuing leases on the 169.254.193.x, even though I put it on bridge mode. But I could be totally off mark.
Also running tcpdump on eth1, I can see requests coming in for dhcp, but my server isn't responding to them.
I am having several boxex with centos on it. No pb. I have recently setup a new box with centos 5.4 and I am not able to get the network working on it when configuring a static ip.I've configured eth0 and dns using "setup": unsuccessfulI've used the network config GUI: unsuccessfulAnd it is working very well when I let the dhcp getting the setting.I need a static IP.Here is the getinfo output when static ip setup, and below it, the getinfo for dhcp setting
== BEGIN uname -rmi == 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5 i686 i386 == END uname -rmi ==
I have router and wireless card Linksys. Driver are installed correctly for wireless card.
Using WifiRadar I can see the access point is detected.
DHCP woks perfectly for wired lan.
However when I try to connect to the detected access point the ip addres is never retrieved and the connection never established.
I tried most of he basic instructions posted on ubuntu forums, but the problem doesn't seem to be with basic configuration: driver, essid, wep key, etc..
The problem seems to be with DHCP not able to retrieve an IP address from the DHCP server of the router. Of course the router works file with other laptops (windows based) that have wireless card.
I also tried the Network Connections setup part of ubuntu. That one shows the access point by its essid name in the list of wireless network, but when I try to connect it takes sometime and eventually asks for the wep key, which I provide and then it times out and keep asking it. The same wep key works for other pcs. Can't figure it out. I am using ubuntu 9.10.
Some more details are the following:
1) Here the output from the log file: /var/log/wifi-radar.log
Of course it is set ... and dhcp client works for wired lan anyway.
2) diego@mysuperlaptop:/var/run$ sudo iwlist wlan0 scan [sudo] password for diego:
I tried everything I could think about in the UI windows setting (WifiRadar and Wireless Network Connections) a well in the config files from the shell. I just don't get what the deal is. I am pretty sure it is a DHCP issue but can't figure out what.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and trying to use Internet Connection Sharing through my Dell Mini 9 laptop.
The incoming internet is from wireless The outgoing internet is from Ethernet I am using a crossover cable as I have heard this is necessary I followed the 9.10 method on my Auto Eth 0 connection Here is a link to the Ubuntu Documentation I used The computer I am trying to share to does not pick up the internet being shared from the cable.
I want to use the wifi card in my laptop to share my internet connection to my Android Phone.Android phones don't support Ad-hoc networks yet (maybe not ever) so I need to the shared network in Infrastructure mode not ad-hoc mode.Using Ubuntu 10.04, If I click on the NetworkManager Applet ( 0.8 ) and select Create new wireless network, it will create an ad-hoc network, I then tried changing this to infrastructure, but it didn't work.Is there some way of modifying this created network to make it appear as infrastructure, or alternatively create a shared internet connection in infrastructure mode?
A friend of mine is trying to setup internet connection sharing in Ubuntu, which is something I've never dealt with before. Here's the situation:One desktop PC is dual-booting Ubuntu and Vista. This box is connected wirelessly to the router and can access the internet just fine. The desired setup is to have an xbox360 connected (wired) to the desktop PC, allowing it to share the internet connection.
1) A crossover cable would need to be used between the desktop PC and the xbox. 2) The xbox would still have the router's internal IP as the default gateway (I have zero experience configuring networking on an xbox... I hope these options are easily available). 3) The internal IPs can all be on the same network (i.e. router = 192.168.1.1 ; desktop = 192.168.1.100 ; xbox = 192.168.1.101) 4) IP forwarding would need to be enabled on the Ubuntu host
Is there anything I'm overlooking or just oversimplifying, or should that just about do it?
