Ubuntu Networking :: The Phone Can Access The Internet Through The Computer Unable To Get Access To Https Sites, Like Webmails
Dec 31, 2010
I managed to configure my W890i phone to get access to internet through an ubuntu-based computer. It's very easy to use the phone to give internet access to the computer, but the opposite is quite more tricky. For that I've done the following
----On the phone---
-Set the USB network option to "through computer", so that the phone uses the computer's internet connection and not the opposite.
-Decide and set "Shared Network" parameters: user, pasword and workgroup.
-In "conectivity-> internet connection" set "allow local network" to "yes"
----On Ubuntu 10.04---
-Install samba, samba-client, smbfs, smbclient, firestarter and dhcp3-server
-Configure Samba (System-> Administration-> Shared folders): same workgroup as in the phone, add new user (the phone), passwd this new user. In my case the user was called "w890i" and the password given was the same.
-Once the phone is connected to the computer through USB (then select "phone mode"), a new connection appears in NetworkManager: usb0.The aim is to create a shared network that gives internet access to this device. Edit the IPv4 parameters of this new connection, set them to Manual and give an IP adress (192.168.0.1) and a subnet mask (255.255.255.0); the rest of the fields are left empty.Connect this network.
-Set firestarter to use dhcp3: sudo ln -sf /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server /etc/init.d/dhcpd
-Launch firestarter and follow the wizard. Set "allow internet shared connection", choose the device for the primary internet access, and then the device for the shared network (usb0). Then change the settings for firestarter: activate DHCP for local network, set IP to the one we gave before (192.168.0.1).
-Open dhcp3-server config file sudo gedit /etc/default/dhcp3-server And set INTERFACES="usb0"
-Set the policies of firestarter: in incoming connections, allow connections from the IP adress given to the phone (192.168.0.1). Then add rules for the ports that need to be open for this connection. I opened HTTP, HTTPS, SMB, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, IMAPS, DHCP for all the connections in the local network.
-Apply policies and start the firewall.
After all this, the phone can access the internet through the computer. Two problems appeared:
1. I couldn't get access to https sites, like webmails. The phone gave a "communication error". But then I tried with Opera instead of the browser built in the phone's firmware, and I could finally get to https sites.
2. I couldn't retrieve mail, neither POP nor IMAP nor IMAPS. I thought it was a firmware problem again, and I tried out several mobile phone email clients written in java, but none of them worked.
So this is at the moment the problem. If I connect from the phone to the internet directly through 3G, the email clients work for all my accounts. I don't think it's a firewall problem, because the ports are opened for this connection
I am using Ubuntu 10.04, when connected to the ethernet through , Atheros Communications AR8152 v1.1.I can successfully access the internet. But when I try to use the wireless I can connect to the network using Atheros Communications AR9285, but can't access any internet sites. Or ping any other devices on the network.I'm using an Acer Aspire One D260
I can pair my phone and laptop using bluetooth, from Network manager I can select my phone and make a connection. But then I can't access anything.I looked at the connection info from nm and tried to ping the given dns addresses. That failed. And I pinged those addresses when I reconnected with wireless and it failed. So, where are these setup? I didn't do it
I've a Nokia 2323 Classic which I want to use to access to the internet on my laptop.
A friend of mine with a Dell Inspiron 15 running Windows 7 could connect to the net by just pairing up and right clicking on my phone's icon in the devices menu and selecting connect to internet via access point.
I've an eMachines E725 which lacks bluetooth. To overcome this I used a dongle which was able to successfully pair up with my phone via the bluetooth menu in preferences.
So what next ? How do I use the phone to connect to the internet directly via access point ?
I noticed that I did not need any operator related settings to do so in windows 7 and the phone worked regardless of SIM card present so I assume it should work similarly in linux.
What is left is to ask the system to treat it as an internet access device and use it that way.
How do I do it ? I don't mind a commandline way but a GUI would be better because I'm not the only person using my laptop.
Unable to access our site via eth0. Can access the same site, via same ISP on wireless laptop, or via eth0, but using ip annonymizer service. Have a feel that it could be something obvious, but after digging through Modems firmware I am running out of ideas
Freshly installed Ubuntu 10.10 amd64 on Asus K50IN laptop refuses to show secure HTTPS internet pages, while posting this here is OKay. It says connection timed out. I tried several browsers FireFox Arora Epiphany.
I am wanting a computer with an external dialup modem (ppp0 modem through a com port /dev/ttys1) to act as a gateway to the internet, forwarding internet traffic through ethernet (eth0 is set to static 192.168.2.2) to a router (the router is 192.168.2.1) where it will be broadcast to other wireless computers like my laptop (192.168.2.3). I've had this setup until recently when the gateway computer (the one with the modem) died. Now I'm replacing that machine with another box and an install of Ubuntu 10.10 but so far things aren't working for me.
Success so far:I have dialup access working on the new box. Took me a while to work out the configuration for getting dialup working, though the IP address is Dynamic (or it won't stay connected), "Check carrier line" is off, and "Ignore Terminal Strings (stupid mode)" is on in order to successfully connect and stay connected to my ISP. I also had to make my normal (non-root) user "lancer" a member of the "pid" group (the reboot) in order to use gnome-ppp as non-root. The laptop (192.168.2.3) is successfully connecting to the router (192.168.2.1) as I can see the router configuration page when I type http://192.168.2.1 into the laptop's web browser. This setup is unchanged from how I had it before when this was previously working and I don't want to change how the router itself is set up. What I want is to know what to fix in the new box in order to get it connected to the router (through ethernet) and bridging the internet through.
My problem is that whenever I plug in the eth0 from the gateway (192.168.2.2) to the router (192.168.2.1), Ubuntu's automatic plug-me-in network detection kicks in and I find my dialup no longer working through some kind of IP conflict (at least that's what I think it is). Maybe I don't have the "gateway" correctly assigned? (in the gateway computer for the ethernet connection, I had it pointing to itself as I don't know what to put for "gateway IP" as that is automatic So, just to check my connection, here I am pinging google (from the gateway computer which has the dialup modem) once a dialup connection has been made.
Code: lancer@lancer-desktop:~$ ping www.google.com PING www.l.google.com (188.8.131.52) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 184.108.40.206: icmp_req=1 ttl=55 time=179 ms 64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_req=2 ttl=55 time=176 ms 64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_req=3 ttl=55 time=158 ms
What do I need to do in order to make Ubuntu of my gateway computer stay connected to my dialup but also simultaneously share an ethernet LAN to my wireless router and feed traffic to the other computers from there? I have googled this but some of the most promising instruction (e.g. http://www.ubuntugeek.com/sharing-in...in-ubuntu.html) call for packages like dnsmasq or ipmasq which seem defunct now in Ubuntu 10.10. Other pages seem to suggest dual-networks "can't be done" in Ubuntu [URL].. (what!?! I had it before my other gateway died)
I am using Ubuntu 10.04. My problem is that I am unable to access my internet using Ubuntu. My internet is running fine on Windows 7 installed on same system. I am a bit unfamiliar with Linux. I tried to configure my network settings but it didn't help. I have my system connected to my dsl router via LAN.
I am a newbie to linux of 4 weeks. I set up my first web server and it works flawlessly - when accessed from external network or from other computers on my lan. However, I cannot access it from the computer where the server is run on. I have found numerous people with similar problems but the flavour I am experiencing is somewhat different and no solutions I have found apply to it.I have two network interfaces on my server, eth0 (public static IP connected to internet) and eth1 connected to LAN 192.168.1.0/24 range. The server is 192.168.1.1
I added "192.168.1.1 www.server.com" to the /etc/hosts on the server and also on the other machines on the LAN. All the other machines can open website without any problem.
HOwever, the server itself only opens website if the address is localhost. Internal IP, i.e. 192.168.1.1. gets a time out and so does www.server.com.I do not understand why the record in etc/hosts doesn't point it in the right direction. It seems that when I open address 192.168.1.1 it still gets routed to the external network. I have seen using DNAT to deal with the problem but it didn't work in my case (maybe I didn't do it correctly). I have spent whole evening/night trying to sort it out, it's 4AM now, going to bed frustrated and angry (at myself hahaha). Still like linux very much, won't be going to windows anymore. Please help
I'm not really a newbee in Linux but I am a newbee in networking. I have both a Ubuntu laptop and a Gentoo desktop computer. I have just bought me the MBR1000 Cradlepoint router and it works great with my Verizon USB 760 modem plugged in it. I can now send and receive email on my Ubuntu laptop. I like it.My Gentoo desktop computer is just sitting there with no Internet access because my Verizon modem is no longer plugged into it but plugged into the router instead. Only my laptop now has Internet access. The laptop has an integrated wireless card built in the MB but my desktop has no such capability.
Is there a way (besides buying a wi-fi adapter) to get Internet access on my desktop computer through networking so that the router would give both computers Internet access at the same? My Gentoo desktop does have an ethernet adapter that perhaps I could useThe router has several LAN ports and one WAN port, both unused.
I have recently installed ubuntu 9.10. Earlier I had ubuntu 9.04. On that my internet was running perfectly well.After installation I created new connection as I had done for 9.04 version using "Network connections , Edit connections". However, after configuring connection(uname , password etc.) I wasn't able to access Internet.So I tried using "pppoeconf" utility. After using this now whenever I click on network connections applet on top panel , it shows in menu "device not managed".Can somebody point out what went wrong and what to do so as to be able to acess Internet in ubuntu?
I connected my laptop running with Ubuntu 11 in the LAN but I couldn't access internet.But I could ping to the other computers connected in the LAN. I tried the same thing with windows 7 in the same laptop and I could access internet.
Fedora 11 is completely unable to access the internet for some reason, and after some troubleshooting, I've determined the problem to my Motorola 2210 DSL modem. I know my connection is working fine, as it works perfectly in both Vista and 7. I've tried things such as grep 'Ethernet' /var/log/dmesg, filling in the information into the network settings manually, to no avail.
I've installed centos 5 on an old computer with success and it works great.I can access the web server hosted on the centos server from any computer on the wireless and wired local network. I can also use ssh (putty) and nx client from any computer on the local network (wired and wireless) to access the centos server.On the wireless router I've configured a port forwarding to the wireless network interface on the centos server. I can access the centos server from the outside (internet) through this port forwarding both through http and ssh or nx client.MY problem is that I can't access the centos server from the internet through the wired network interface. Any attempt to view a web page or login with ssh or the nx client will timeout.
I'm running a squid proxy in my ubuntu server, and I must have mess it up with the squid configuration. Users, cannot, access https pages. Can you tell me what to change in my squid.conf, so, to fix this?
Here is my squid.conf (witch is a friends conf, that i have change for my needs...)
This started yesterday. I haven't made any recent changes. I can't access any pages beginning with https. It's just my computer because my girlfriend's laptop doesn't have any issues. I'm using OpenDNS, but I have been for a long time and this is the first time this has ever happened. I'm not using a router, I connect straight to the modem, which I've already reset.
can't access internet. The up and down icon appears by the network connection (upper right hand corner). When I review connection properties, I see that the computer has a valid address, subnet, gatway, dns, etc... But it still can't connect to the internet. I can't ping external addresses either. But I can access internal addresses (local router).
I have three computers in my network, but two will be mentioned. Computer A is a Linux Mint 9/Windows 7 dual-boot, and I have just installed Mandriva Free 2010.2, which I will call Computer B.
Now my main problem is that Computer B, while it can see and access Computer A's shares as well as the third computer, the aforementioned computers cannot access Computer B. The message was: "Unable to mount location/Failed to mount Windows share." Now, the SMB protocol was used because of the third computer and Computer A have Windows OSs installed in them.
What I originally wanted was that I can share Computer B's NTFS partition, namely Documents and Downloads, to the other computers. And I can't do that, because of the error message.
What I can do, however, is use Computer B to view shares from the other two computers (Computer A, as an example). By my experiences in Linux Mint, I understand that I'd have to mount my Windows partitions in order to share them. I don't even know if my NTFS drive in Computer B is mounted, though that is what was described.
Strangest thing...yesterday my 11.04 box lost the ability to access anything external. I can ssh to the box from outside my network, and all other boxes on my network are fine, but this one box can't hit anything external. If I attempt to ping a site it's doing the same resolution, but no packets are delivered.
Up until yesterday it was running fine, and I didn't make any changes to my home network or install any updates. Totally stumped.
Edit: this is a wired connection with a static internal IP.
I've been running a Samba server under RedHat 8 for five years without a hiccup. I want to cut over to a F10 box but cannot get shares accessible. smbclient attempts fail over NT password error. SELinux is disabled. Server is visible on the network. Users require no password access to shared data.

I have just installed ubuntu 7.10 on my computer. The problem is getting it connected to the internet using my Sony Ericsson w580i as a modem. I have used my phone to connect to the internet on XP operating system easily. Please assist me and try to give me a more simplified step by step procedure.
I have a question which it believe it is quite simple but I have no clue how to do it... I'm using Fedora 12 and I'm the only Linux machine in my office's LAN... I have Apache (httpd) setup and my co-workers can access the sites perfectly by using my IP address, for example [URL]... So here's the question, how do I setup a domain name so everyone in the LAN can access the sites by typing [URL]..
