Ubuntu :: Network Time Capsule The Capsule Appears In My Network Places?
Feb 22, 2011
I'm having problems connecting to our network time capsule the capsule appears in my network places and I can open it up but there are no files present. However when on my house mates Mac there are many different file types present. At first I thought it may be a formatting problem but the files can be accessed from a windows machine also.
My time capsule's ip is 192.168.1.10, it's name is "Time Capsule", the drive I'm trying to mount is called Movie HD
If I input the following command:
sudo mount.cifs //192.168.1.10/Time Capsule/Movie HD /media/timecapsule/ -o pass=mypassword
I get a connection refused error.I tried a couple different variations such as "/"Time Capsule"/Movie HD",etc,every combination, but I get a connection refused error (111) every time.(I have two drives on my time capsule, the internal, Movie HD, and an external usb one, Media HD, I want to actually mount them both)On my time capsule I did set it guest access to read only... Also, when I go to my places> network I do see the time capsule in the list, but I get an error message that it can't access the shares when I try to open it.
During Slackware 13.1 setup, I chose the hostname stella-sl2. This hostname is also the one that the system is displaying before I configured network access. After configuring wired network access to my Apple Time Capsule, my hostname suddenly changed to INTERFACE='eth0'. As a result I'm noticing some very strange things, like the login prompt which has become "INTERFACE='eth0' login: ".
After configuring wireless network access to the Time Capsule, the hostname changed to "INTERFACE='wlan0'". Note that, during boot, wlan0 is brought up AFTER eth0.
Until now, it was only a minor annoyance, it didn't prevent anything from happening, internet connection was not affected. But now I'm configuring sendmail which needs to talk to a relay SMTP server, and sendmail "HELO"'s itself using the bogus hostname:
Probably this is caused by the Time Capsule not adhering to standards. However, the Time Capsule's firmware is the latest version, so I cannot fix this. Is there a way to prevent dhcp from changing the hostname? How can I make sure that the hostname that I configured during setup remains active?
I was playing with my debian server when something went totally wrong while i was editing something on my network interface,i removed those crap that i wrote and left the network interface configuration as it was
Like for example after re-editing my network interface,it was like :
As i did a network restart, i get this error saying :
There is already a pid file /var/run/dhclient.eth0.pid with pid 2802 killed old client process, removed PID file.
What is this error and how can i fix it,because every time im re booting my server i lost my network config.
I'm running ubuntu maverick and i'm having issues with some things.First off, Alt+F2 no longer opens the Run Dialog. I have checked the keyboard shortcuts and settings and re-entered the command but it still doesn't work. I also checked the compiz settings for gnome compatibility. The odd thing is that all of my other Function key shortcuts work, just not Alt+F2 Not sure what else to try.
Next, I am not able to open Network in Places. I click it, then I get a loading icon for half a second then nothing opens. Also, when I click Places > Connect to Server, the only option that I have is custom location. The issue with this is that I used to have several other options like FTP, SSH, Windows Share, etc.
I installed Ubuntu Server 10.10 today on an old laptop. I then used webmin to configure it and enabled windows networking, the laptop is in the same workgroup as another win7 laptop and a win xp desktop. However, I can't see the server in My network places.
I am trying to work out if the network manager (the icon in the top right) can be enabled for all users logged on, not just the first.
Sometimes my router drops the connection and it is nescesary to click OK to the password re-entry prompt, however if I have logged on, then someone else is using the system and this happens, I need to log back on, press OK, log back out then let them log back in again.
I am running Ubuntu 10.4LTS. The network symbol of two monitors shows up consistently up in the right hand corner of my monitor. I look at my network settings and it shows activity on eth1 as "never". But, I am on the internet fine.
I have two network interfaces in my opensuse 11.3 system and want to control the interface which is used as default route. Somehow, it always picks the first card no matter what. In particular, I have tried setting DHCLIENT_PRIMARY_DEVICE to 'yes' resp. 'no' in both ifcfg-* files in /etc/sysconfig/network. Also, I have tried DHCLIENT_SET_DEFAULT_ROUTE but that also appears to be ignored. I remember having used this in the past with previous opensuse versions but it no longer seems to work. What is the correct way for doing this?
I did set samba server up. I just modified only one configuration from default /etc/samba/smb.conf file.
Just workgroup = MSHOME to workgroup = WORKGROUP. And browseable = yes. Beacuse my xp workgroup is WORKGROUP. So I changed as same workgroup name both unbuntu and XP.
But I couldn't find samba pc on network places at XP. I have started smbd and nmbd already. There is a ridiculous something. I can access samba at XP only typing \samba IP address. But why I can't see at network places. I am using ubuntu 10.04 TL.
I am trying to permanently integrate a windows network drive into my Ubuntu 11.04. I don't have Nautilus - I am using Rox Filer instead. I am trying to get this job done according to this link here (Method 2): [URL]. I want to integrate the network drive as described in Method 2, but I don't have Places->Network. Is there a way I could do this without Nautilus?
Read my Linux distribution from my user data. I have configure different network places bookmarks but accidentally, I introduced the wrong username in that one, thus it is listed as a bookmark for a network place, but it will not connect. How do I erase these bookmarks?
I have a simple problem where Windows machines can connect to shares on my Fedora server (via SAMBA), but only when using the IP address. When Windows users to go Network (in Vista and 7) or Network Places (XP), then all computers on the network show up in that window except for the Fedora server. How can I get my server to appear in that space? Although I can connect via IP address, we are using some programs that can only find shares by the computer name (aka if it's found in the Network window). I have checked and rechecked that the workgroup name is indeed correct.
I've restarted a server a couple times, and during the boot process pings respond when it brings up eth0, but then when i get to the command line login screen, the pings die. once i log in and do a ./network start the pings respond again, so i'm guessing its dying or not set to start automatically maybe? What should I check?
I'm having some problems with my wireless connection. I'm on Ubuntu 10.04, on a HP ProBook 4520s, with a RaLink RT3090 wireless network card. I installed the drivers (hopefully correctly), the wireless seems to work correctly, it scans and finds networks, but when I try to connect to one, it times out after some time, while still attempting to connect. I also have a wired connection that works correctly and without problems. Other computers that try to connect to said wireless network manage to do so without any problems, so this has left me a bit baffled, since, like I said, everything seems to be in order.
I'm a new Ubuntu user, so please tell me what other information I need to provide in order to easily and successfully facilitate troubleshooting this, because it is, as you can imagine, quite aggravating, having a laptop that needs to be connected to the internet through a cable.
I've got fedora 11 set up to use network time protocol to sync my laptop's date & time when I'm on-line. The question is simple really, I've added a local universality's time server (what is public) and it's live. but it's added to the end of the default time servers what come with fedora. How do I get fedora to just use the local time server, is it a case of removing the default time servers for fedora, but there is a box what says advanced options which are. sync system clock before starting service ???? & use Local time source (( is that the same as the local ntp server that I've got set up ))Hope some body can help me with the network time protocol part of Date/Time settings.
In the right upper corner of your screen,you can see if you have a network connection or not.Most of the time I do not have one according to Networkmanager (?).So I have to enable my wired connection manually.I already tried a lot to change my settings so I would have a network connection at boot,but it doesn't seem to work....Firefox is in Offline modus when I logon..
I'm a bit puzzled by new "keyring everywhere" feature, well the case: Now I'm using 11.3 brand new suse and just when I want to connect to INTERNET via my DSL connection, a keyring password window appears, well I fill in the keyring password and hit enter, then another window pops out with my DSL connection asking me to enter a password for my DSL connection (but I've already set it up it before) and ok, I enter my password hit enter, but DSL window pops out again! and nothing happens,
I do it several times like a puppet, then I delete my DSL connection and make it again, so everything works with passwords no(no keyring is being promted). SO what do I do wrong? How can I disable this keyring feature, I do not need it at all, why do I need to recreate my connection every single time?
I have b43 wireless. In network Configuration on system->administration the interface it appears as inactive it appers in hardware also as b43 associated to wlan0 but i cannot have access to any wireless network. What i have to do to put this b43 to work.
Ubuntu 10.04 x64 desktop. We have a NAS with several shared directories. They mount fine using manual "Connect to Server" using the SMB protocol. I assigned "Bookmarks" on connection so that I can recall them more easily when needed. The shared drives appear under "Places" with the more user friendly Bookmarks for each share appearing after the line divider in File Manager. This is all splendid.
However, when for example wanting to attach a file from a mapped shared drive when writing an email in Gmail (in either Firefox or Chromium), the "File Upload" window that opens DOES NOT show any mapped shared drives or Bookmarks making it impossible to attach anything from a shared drive. how to fix this rather bizarre behaviour since it is severely limiting the usefulness of centralizing our files on a NAS if I cannot attach shared files to emails.
Drag and drop also does not work. Firefox ignores them while Chromium says "This file is 0 bytes, so it will not be attached." I just successfully attached the same files in Chrome running on a Windows 7 machine in Virtualbox. This is both amazing, and somewhat embarrassing. How to do this from within Ubuntu 10.04 so that I do not have to resort to running a Windows machine just so that I can attach shared files
I recently installed Fedora 10 and I'm trying to install a driver for my HP Deskjet F4200 Series All in One printer. I downloaded the proper hplip file and when i go to install it in the terminal it gets to the very end where it is trying to install the missing required dependencies. When it checks for the network connection it comes back saying "error: The network appears to be unreachable. Installation cannot complete without access to error: distribution repositories. Please check the network and try again."I am connected to the internet through hardwire cable (also tried it through wifi) and have no trouble accessing internet through mozilla or downloading packages elsewhere. Any ideas on why my terminal won't recognize my internet connection??
On Linux Mint (Gnome) i used to go to Network drive. that is on the right hand side of Nautilus there is a short cut for Network. in there i could see my network hard drive and other laptops connected to the network, and i could access my files. but on OpenSuse, when i open the network folder, nothing comes up. may be it needs some sort of configuration.
I recently enabled autologin on my linux distro, now during login network manager needs to have a password entered before it will load. How do I set it so that I don't have to enter the password every time?
First: I have just recently upgraded to 10.04 and I just noticed that my network icon in the top right tool bar disappeared. The one that monitors your wireless signal for laptops. How do I make that appear again?
Second question: How do I change the time selection at the beginning when I first turn on my laptop to choose between Windows or Ubuntu? Better yet, is it possible to make it infinite?
I didn't quite know how to describe my problem in the title. I installed Lucid i386 on my wife's PC two days ago. I updated all programs from the update manager. This PC uses a usb Wifi adapter for internet. When I boot the PC, the internet works. But after one or two hours, the networking capabilities disappear. In the network list in the panel there are NO networks listed, and the only way that I have been able to restore the ethernet is to restart the PC. What can I do to correct this?
Whenever I reboot my server, it looses all network connectivity. It can't see the LAN nor the internet. I have to issue the following:
Code: ifconfig eth0 down ifconfig eth1 down ifconfig eth1 up
This will get the server talking to the LAN, but still not to the internet. To get that I have to do:
Code: route add default gw 192.168.0.1
Then I'm up and running.
Granted I only have to reboot now and then (after a power failure, or, like last night where the server was actually heating the house too much on a hot August day) but why is this happening? It is like these settings are temporary and are lost on shutdown.
