Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Get Share Connection To My Other Network Interface?
Aug 19, 2010
I am a big ubuntu fan (9.04) installed,everything went well, installed my network card(s) & the onboard without no problems/installation disc.I have 2 Network interface(s) that I used on windows xP to 'bridge' my connection, because I only have one slot on my router, and the last slot runs into my computer room and from the PC, I run it to the xbox/ps3.No matter what I do, I cannot get ubuntu to share connection
to my other network interface.
I have 2 laptop with opensuse 11.2. One of them is connected to the Internet through a Mobile Connection with a CDMA/EDVO modem on the usb port. I want to share the Internet connection with the other laptop through the WiFi interface of each of them. How should I proceed?
I seem to be having quite a big problem with Internet sharing. After doing a clean install of Lucid, I tried to set up a shared connection between my computer and my Roku set-top box. I have noticed that I am only able to set up a connection profile in Network Connections under the Ethernet card with the active Internet connection. That is, whenever I try to set up a connection, I am not given the option of using the second Ethernet card. Thus I can't share the network connection. Can someone PLEASE help me? The IRC has been completely useless.
I wouldn't be posting this if I hadn't tried very hard for the past week to do this on my own, but alas, I failed. I have this two configurations:
Desktop: - Ubuntu 9.10 - Connected to the internet though a wireless card - Connected to "Laptop" via wired network with a crossover cable
Laptop: - Dell latitude - Ubuntu 9.10 - Connected to "Dektop" via wired network with a crossover cable
The wired connection is working, both computers are able to ping each other, but I haven't managed to share internet, nor files. I have tried many different ways, from setting the wired network to "Shared to other computers" to this guide in the Ubuntu Wiki. The best I could get was for the connection to work by setting the IPs manually, whatever else I try results in either nothing or in a not-working connection.
I'm using Internet connection through local network, receiving white (global) IP, route, DNS with local DHCP server. Lately I noticed that my Ubuntu gets ipv6 autoconfiguration from ISP router, receiving global ipv6 address and automatically adding ipv6 route. I can access Internet resources using ipv6 connection: I can ping inet resources using my ipv6 global address and access, for example, ipv6.google.com or URL..
How can I share ipv6 connection to my home network? Using ipv4 it's easy, I just can use NAT for this. But if I understand correctly, in ipv6 there isn't such thing as NAT, because there is no limit in ip addresses.
I'm trying to set up a wireless or wired network (wireless would be better...) to share my connection with my housemate, as well as with some devices. The only guide I found regarding this (I must admit, I didn't have much time to put into research), was dating back to 2005, and although doable, seemed somewhat confusing. Getting to the point: is there a way (maybe a standalone program, or some kind of plugin) to share a connection?
I have a strange problem regarding networking on the Alix 2d13 running Ubuntu 10.04. The Alix has 3 physical network interfaces, lspci says:
Code: 00:09.0 Ethernet controller : VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6105M [Rhine-III] [1106:3053] (rev 96) Kernel driver in use: via-rhine Kernel modules: via-rhine 00:0a.0 Ethernet controller : VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6105M [Rhine-III] [1106:3053] (rev 96) Kernel driver in use: via-rhine Kernel modules: via-rhine
It seems, if more than one cable is connected, a random hardware port is chosen as eth0-eth2. If only one cable is connected the port that is connected is chosen as eth0-eth2. Any idea what's going wrong here?
I just installed Ubuntu Netbook 10.10 on my Lenovo ideapad S10e. Under the network manager it says that firmware is not installed for the wirless card but that is something for a different day. On the ethernet connection it attempts to connect via dhcp and then comes up saying it is disconnected. I attempted to set it as a static connection, when i do that it shows that its connected but I still can not connect to the internet.
In Googling around it appears that the Network Manager used to have a nice simple (obvious, logical, straightforward, intuitive, easy-to-use... ... can you tell I'm a bit surprised that there's not a simple button to do this, it's pretty common functionality ) option in the IPv4 tab called "Shared to other computers" allowing you to share your network connection with any computers connected to yours... kind of like this:
Professor Google seems to indicate that this may have existed in Debian at one point but, I don't see this option anymore. How do I get it back (or is there another gui way to do this without editing the /etc/network/interfaces file... if there's no other way to do this... that's fine but I'd prefer an easy method of enabling and disabling sharing)?
What I'm trying to do... I have a Beaglebone Black connected via IP over USB. When I'm ssh'ed into the BeagleBone, I want to be able to use aptitude install to grab new packages etc... and that kind of requires access to the outside world. Everything I've found so far seems to to require a modification to the interfaces file but since (according to the interfaces man page) the preferred method is to use the network manager if possible... I'm trying to avoid that.
* It should be noted that I'm running sid with the experimental 4.3 kernel so... maybe in doing so I've shot myself in the foot?
I have two linux laptops. Currently, I'm using both of them at work, side-by-side. Now the problem is, I'm connected to a wireless router, but the wireless only works on one of the laptops. So I'm stuck with one laptop that has no access to the internet. Both machines do, however, have working ethernet nic cards. So, I was wondering if I could use the laptop with the wireless connection to share the internet connection with my other linux machine and access the internet on both of them. Or as an alternative, just use the internet on the machine without wireless and be able to switch back and forth, that would increase my productivity like 30 fold.
I am running a NFS share on a Debian Lenny server with to network interface.
Sometimes when booting the server the following messages i shown in syslog:
If the system is rebooted then NFS is functional again. I would like to know way this happens somtimes so i can repair it, anyone with an idea? Another thing is that i would like to bind the NFS service to a specific interface e.g eth1 is this possible?
I am totally new to Linux and have just installed ubuntu 10.10. After configuring the network interface via dhcp I started getting these messages that come in so frequently I can't configure anything else.
Why I am getting this messages and more importantly how do I get rid of them.
I have got a laptop running Debian squeeze. I wish to share the wireless connection of the laptop (wlan0) to the ethernet port of the laptop, so that I can share the wireless connection to my desktop PC which is connected to the ethernet port.
I have read the article on Ubuntu community: [url]
I followed the steps, and the /etc/network/interfaces file on my laptop is:
Now the situation is: My laptop can connect to Internet (i.e. ping debian.org from laptop is fine), my desktop PC can connect to my laptop (i.e. ping 192.168.1.1 from desktop PC is fine). However, the desktop PC cannot reach the Internet.
I also read the information on Debian Wiki: [url]
It seems I must install and configure ebtables before sharing my wireless connection to ethernet port. Is it true? (But why the article on Ubuntu community doesn't mention it?) Or I just made some mistakes?
today I tried to configure a network route to a host for testing my network interface. Code: route add 192.168.1.15 eth0 As I have to eth interfaces and both interface got their IP from DHCP (192.168.1.11 and 192.168.1.12) and are in the same subnet, I shut the other interface down:
Code: ifconfig eth1 down Then I tried to test the interface by doing a ping to 192.168.1.15. Problem: When I unplug the cable from eth0 (and eth1 is still plugged) the ping still works. Somehow my linux (it's debian) powers up again eth0 and pings over this port.
How can I stop my linux doing this. I just want to have the route added only on the one interface - not the other. Is it maybe some case of a default-gateway?
Upon boot of my system, I auto run a script that customizes the routing table (i.e., route -n). However, after the system is already booted up and has been running, if a network connection is dropped and re-added, like if one of the several network cables to the machine is temporarily disconnected or other, then the routing table is modified -- I assume by network manager. Presently, I need to manually re-run my script to re-customize the routing table.
I would like to have the script just run whenever there is any change to the connection state of interfaces. Anyone know how to tie in some kind of event trigger that can execute a script upon change in interfaces connection state (i.e., detect change in connection state and run the script)?
I need to setup an Ubuntu Server to handle backups over the network (probably rsync over ssh). That server will then transfer the backup data offsite over a secondary external data line.How can I configure the ethernet interfaces to handle such a scenario?
I have a windows machine (in a domain) and I have created 2 Virtual Machines with Suse 11.2 installed on them.Now, I want to share a folder in windows to both Suse images. I am succesfully able to do that.I used: mount -t cifs -o user..... command to mount it at /mnt/win on my linux and succesfully able to work with it.
Now, I want a user in my Linux box (both Linux images)to be able to write to the shared folder in windows (actually both linux images will write to the shared folder but it is based on acquairing locks and releasing them to be able to use the shared folder on windows).
I tried etc fstab and lot other options but my efforts were in vain.Simply put - I need a user in my linux box (suse 11.2) to be able to write to a windows shared folder.
I'm trying to connect two PCs to the Internet (or at least to create a local network) using a crossover cable. My main PC (the one that has two ethernet adapters and is connected to the Internet) runs Windows 7 and my secondary PC runs Ubuntu 10.04.Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Both systems send out packages but don't receive anything. How can I possibly fix this, so that I could use LAN and share the Internet connection between PCs? Does Windows need special software to recognize Ubuntu (or the other way around)?
I have a small wireless network running IPv6 connected though a 802.15.4 usb stick, and a network connection through eth1. I can access the nodes on the wireless network from my computer, but not from any other on the wired LAN. Also the nodes on the wireless cannot see even the address of eth1. I'm guessing i have to forward all packets from the wireless to eth1 in some way, but am unable to find an guides for this with IPv6.
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
Sometimes my file share network stops working,and will then work again.I'm lost with this problem. The server pc is a Zenwalk pc.The other pc is a win7 pc. This error only occurs on Zenwalk. When i run puppy from the live cd the file shares are always visible,without fail.Under puppy i use pNethood. When the ping command is used there is no problem, and the pc name can be pinged.This is shown below:
From the command shell, how do I get to a network connected drive?I do a "Connect to Server" -> "Windows share" and connect to one of my Windows XP systems. Everything is fine. But how do I get to that drive from the command line prompt so I can do terminal commands or open files programmatically (hmmm is that spelled right?) Thus far, I see no way to do it.
i have two machines both on ubuntu 10.4 connected to a network via port switcher, 2 rj45 network cables auto eth0 is setup to share with other computers, i can ssh in and out of both, so the network is all running but i want to know how to share my single dongle internet connection between the 2 computers
