I'm trying to establish a connection to my ISP which uses PPTP protocol and a VPN server. The deivce I got from my ISP is a modem, not a router. The problem is my computer is unable to communicate with the ISP VPN server.
P.S Here are the instructions for Windows XP which work: http://portal.bnet.hr/ZG/windows-xp.htm
I have setup an OpenVPN server on my server box, it had been working perfectly until today. It operates on port 1194 which I am now unable to connect to (tried telnet). I have checked all the firewall rules and they still allow the port and I have also checked to ensure that OpenVPN is still listening to the port, which it's not but I have tried restarting the service and the box which dosent make any difference. The only thing that has changed is that yesterday I installed Openfire, could this have broken something?
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my Dell Inspiron 1545 64-bit laptop. Before that I used Windows7. In Windows, the internet connection worked perfectly well. But after installing Ubuntu, I am unable to connect to the internet. The network-manager applet finally says that "You are disconnected". When I do the "ifconfig", I got no IP address.
So, I installed Ubuntu 9.04 in the same system. But the problem persists.
I gone through many posts in this forum but nothing was useful.
I'm running ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop.Wireless networks appear on the dropdown menu but when I try to connect to my home network the authentication box appears, after typing my password the box disappears and it continues to connect but nothing happens and after a while the authentication box appears again. So.. no internetz connected.
I have this very weird problem: I'm not able to SSH to 1 specific server on the web. I can access everything, but not that specific server.
When I try to SSH, I get this code...
When I reboot to Windows, I can SSH using Cygwin. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid and OpenSSH client 1:5.3p1-3ubuntu6. I tried sniffing the network with Wireshark, but I cannot understand why the TCP connection cannot be set up. I'm sure it's an Ubuntu problem as I'm able to connect to that server on the same machine, but different OS.
I recently installed Deluge 1.2.0 from the following PPA:[URL]I using this on two different Linux computers. One is running Linux Mint 8 and the other is running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10. The first time on either computer when I enable WebUI in the Deluge GUI it works fine. However if I ever disable it in plugins section I am subsequently unable to re-enable it (doesn't appear in the side panel again). Rebooting or reinstalling Deluge seems to have no effect.Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
I am using OpenSuse 11.3 and Network Manager is giving me a headache by not connecting to WEP based wi-fi network.It works in a wi-fi at my office while at my home, it shows / detects the network but keeps asking me over and over.
I tried to install vsftpd on my server and while the installation went fine, I can't run
Code: restart vsftpd As I the get error Code:
restart: Unable to connect to system bus: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory Though I'm able to restart the service with
sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart with a warning telling me to use the service utility. Not only that, but despite the port being open it won't allow me to log in, it just hangs, and I have local users enabled (I've used the default .conf file). Does dbus not come installed in 10.04, and if I did install it would it make a difference for restarting the service? Are there further steps needed not available in the tutorial on the Ubuntu Server Guide for 10.04 to enabling local user authentication? -edit- Figured it out, dbus wasn't installed, vsftpd is working fine now.
I am trying to setup a dhcp server for my internal network. I have two NICs, a modem, and a wireless router. I have my server connected directly to my modem which is providing me with Internet access on eth1 and is working fine. I have dhcp and dns setup on eth0 which is connected to my router. The router shows that it is connected to the Internet but when the router gives a client computer an IP address, the client is unable to connect to the Internet but can connect to the router. I will post my configuration files below with my current configuration.
I don't know if i should of put this in either Networking or Dell Forum. But here goes. I have a Dell Studio 1535 Laptop, and i have downloaded the new ubuntu 10.04
The problem is, is that i cannot get a internet connection. On my laptop there is a wifi sign that lights up if it works, and it didnt when i booted it. So i thought i have the driver downloaded and i tried to install it and it installed but after it crashes, so that failed. And then i tried via Ethernet and it does not connect when i connect it to the router!. It just says disconnected everytime .
I have tried to reboot, just incase it was a bad boot or something, and i stil get the same. It just will not connect to the internet
I've been happily using Ubuntu One for a few weeks now, synching some files and notes.
Today I inadvertently clicked another folder to 'synchronise with Ubuntu One'. This was a 500mb folder containing work and personal files which I'm not ready to rely on the cloud for.
I must admit I panicked a bit as I attempted to stop the synch. I deleted the entire folder (got it backed up on an external hd) and the synch stopped. I then logged in to the U-One website and deleted the folders and files it had uploaded by that point.
When I restored the folder from the ext hd it started to synch again. This time I removed my machine from the U-One preferences and eventually cancelled my account.
I have now restored that folder under a slightly different name so it doesn't try and synch it.
Meanwhile I've re-started my U-One account and have added my machine so it appears on the webpage. I've uploaded a file via the website. I've also been able to successfully synch Tomboy notes in both directions.
However, I can't synch files with my Home/Ubuntu One folder. I've attached screengrabs of the three tabs in U-One Preferences which show 'disconnected'. If I click 'connect' on the Devices tab, it simply greys out and nothing else happens.
Files in my Home/Ubuntu One folder all have the Unsynchronized emblem against them (a cloud with a cross in a red circle). code...
my wireless just stopped working. the network manager in my panel no longer allows me to enable wireless. the option to enable wireless is there, but it is grayed out and will not let me connect. i reinstalled my wifi driver but it didnt change anything. iwconfig shows that the card is working why is the network manager not?
I'm running Ubuntu in VMWare for a side project. I noticed when I boot up, it doesn't let me access anything externally. I have to disable network manager and re-enable it. Once done, I can hit everything fine. I'm using a static IP in network manager.
I install and configure the vncserver following and reading 1000papers, but all of this present the same problem; when i try to connect to my vncserver,recive this mesage: unable connect to socket: No route to host (113) The OS version is Fedora Core 14 and tigervnc-server i try different solutions including:Allow TCP connection modifing files /etc/gdm/custom.conf and /usr/share/gdm/gdm.chemas Disable SELinux removing iptables Here follow the vncserver configuration:
The ip address of the vncserver is correct because i can do ssh on it. Where or what can i do?
I just installed red hat enterprise 5 in my laptop and on desktop both. In desktop it is working fine but in laptop it is not showing the eth device. (I tried ifconfig only lo is there). I tried ifup eth0 still nothing happened. The network service in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and in /etc/sysconfig/network are enable. I had ubuntu in my laptop before and I faced same problem with that too. Is there any problem with my laptop? I have my system on dual boot and in win7 networking is running fine. I am not able to connect to the internet only, other devices are working fine.
System conf: Sony vaio E series. 3 GB RAM, intel core i3 2.13 GHZ.
When I put a DVD in my DVD drive I cannot get Ubuntu to play it, not with VLC, Enna, Boxee or Movie Player, with movie player I get "An Error Occurred Could not open location; you might not have permission to open the file."
With VLC I get some very slow jerky playback that crashes when I go full screen.
