The solution I made was to use Cron and DropBox to share my IP address. I wrote a bash program. (See image) (sorry, I don't know how to share the script) I copied this into "/etc/cron.hourly/showmyip" Now, every hour, I get an updated file copied to my DropBox folder that shows my IP address. I can access it from any location or computer by just ...

Problem is with default route. Nice place for this kind of action is in /etc/network/if-down.d/ or /etc/network/if-up.d/ to make default route to eth0 interface every time when go up, make script called script with execute permissions 755 sudo nano /etc/network/if-up.d/script # Check for specific interface if desired [ "$IFACE" != "eth0" ] || exit 0 # Do ...

I'd say the best course of action would be to file a bug against that "Stream-Player" or if it has no bug tracker then contacting its author/maintainer. a) It should recover gracefully from a disconnection (for which ever reason) b) It should not prevent you from starting to play something Also: Have you tried killing/stopping the app?

Found a solution for now. Rolling back Ubuntu to a previous issue upon booting solved the issue for me. Seems to be a problem with newer versions of Ubuntu.

The issue was with my Internet Service Provider. The problem is that I tried using Google DNS and OpenDNS but it didn't work and I ruled out ISP issues. Even using other DNS' my ISP (GVT-Brasil) still pointed Google sites to its problematic IPs. But in the end I was able to fix using another DNS provider (GigaDNS) so it was indeed an ISP issue.

You can try to install another driver for this Ethernet card sudo apt-get install r8168-dkms If that does not help, check the cable, contacts on both sides. Expanaition Realtek Ethernet RTL8111/8168 adapters are generally supported out of the box by Linux kernel. There is r8169 module for that. In most cases it works well. But some hardware revisions ...

Fuck if I know. There are lots. man ssh lists some (~/.ssh/config comes to mind). Others can be discovered using e.g. dpkg -L network-manager-vpnc, which lists all the files installed by that package. You'll have to figure out which ones are config files. Try https://dnsleaktest.com/. I think it's mainly aimed at people trying to steal movies safely, but I ...

It turned out it was a Power Management thing but all of the commands I tried and were posted in the links above didn't permanently set power management to off. So I followed these steps and it worked: http://askubuntu.com/a/129634/433874

Found the answer online here Open the terminal. Type ifconfig wlan0 and press [Enter]. You will not see any output in the terminal, as this command just turns your wireless card on.

The nmap results were the biggest hint that the problem was not the network configuration with VirtualBox. The issue was with Tomcat. I opened the conf/server.xml file in my Tomcat home directory.

So, step 1 to setting a fixed ip address should be to make sure another device isn't already connected to that ip! The moment I changed the ip to something that wasn't already claimed, everything worked fine.

In my opinion, for your usage, you shouldn't have to dig in the madness of docker networking. I would advice you to use port mapping when you run your container. For example, say you have created an apache image in docker through your Dockerfile. When you want to run this container, use the -p option to map ports : sudo docker run -d -p=80:80 -p=443:443 ...

You will need to install firmware first. It can be done using this answer. But it looks like kernel 3.13.0-59 has many bugs. Among them is inability to load the firmware. I suggest upgrading kernel to 3.19. It can be done by running in terminal sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-vivid and reboot.

Hi again and thanks for the feedback, So here is what I did: BIOS update: done with the release of June 12th 2015. The version previously installed was about one year old. Router settings: I had selected WPA (TKIP+AES) because it is stated in my router interface that this is the prefered mode (does not say why though). My other choices are: WEP (but I ...

make sure your network cable is connected. Usually if you have a router from your provider, you get along better if your trying automatic/dhcp as method.

Please try your interfaces file like this: auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1 dns-nameservers 192.168.1.1 8.8.8.8 Restart the interface: sudo ifdown eth0 && sudo ifup eth0 And check: hostname -I Since the definition of -I in man hostname says: Display all network ...

You can specify port forwarding for incoming ports to forward to port 22 on each of the computers. Say you have 4 computers on this network. We will call them A, B, C, and D. You have a laptop on a different network and you want to connect to computer A, B, C, or D. Set incoming port forward on port 55555, for example, to forward to computer A on port 22. ...

if you have 1 static ip then you can NAT that to a local. you can ssh to that (ssh username@publicip) "public server" and from there you can jump to another local computer via ssh username@localip.

You can't have the same IP, but you can just have both interfaces active at once and set up a script to try to determine if the wireless connection is up, then use that. Then if it's not up, default to eth0. But if you've already got a cable run. why use wifi at all? Ethernet is much faster/more reliable/all around better than USB wifi...

The easiest way is to upgrade kernel. Run in terminal sudo apt-get linux-generic-lts-vivid and reboot after installation finishes. But you have to be connected to internet by wire or a USB dongle. If it is not easy, you can try to boot with a previous kernel using grub menu.

Yes, it is safe as long as you have a complex wifi password.The only way for people to get in is by gaining access to your wifi or router (wan). I recommend that you use a password though. If you want to ensure that nobody is on your network, run the arp -na command (you can also use nmap to scan the whole netmask).

You can try placing a line in this file: /etc/crontab (using sudo) For example: 10 * * * * root /etc/init.d/networking restart OR you can also use the ping command instead of restarting networking (2 * * * * root ping [ex. google.com]) When you save the file this command will automatically (no reboot needed) run as root every 10 minutes by the process ...

I was able to do this entirely via network manager by creating a new "Wireless (shared)" connection which defaulted to Ad-Hoc mode. This should probably suffice if you're trying to use your laptop as a repeater for other devices. Don't forget to set your WiFi security to "WPA/WPA2 Personal" and set a secure key. You might see two different versions of the ...

As long as you only use this on your private home network and you don't share the network with other people that you don't know/trust (such as in an apartment complex), then you should be fine. WPA2 can be breached through brute-force attacks but someone would have to be in range of your wifi connection in order to attempt to gain access, and if you're very ...

First of all, I think you'll have better luck if your router is set to use WPA2-AES and not TKIP. Second, I believe you are taking the long, complicated route when the short, easy route would work perfectly well. First, I suggest you back up your current wpa_supplicant.conf file: sudo mv /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf ...

The problem is in some of your sysctl settings: net.ipv6.conf.wlan1.accept_ra = 1 This one is fine: accept Router Advertisements net.ipv6.conf.wlan1.accept_ra_defrtr = 0 But this one tells your system not to accept the default route from the RA. The RA does advertise the router as a default gateway. If you want your system to learn this then you have ...

I just recently had exactly the same problem with my Linksys AC1200 USB WiFi stick. In my case it helped switching from WPA security to WEP security on the WiFi network. That might help you out here too. It seems that WPA support of the driver is not fully functional.

which soft are you using? for example,ftp or just LAN shared files? When typing IP address on Nautilus, Nautilus have to decide which software to use. so assume your RPI IP is 192.168.1.2, if your RPI were using ftp ,then type : ftp://192.168.1.2. (sftp maybe the same, I haven't used) if you are using LAN shared files, make sure the directory of RPI has been ...

There's a variety of ways to do this. More preferred and automated way is to use cron. My choice would be a neat scheduling program called at (not installed by default, you have to get it with sudo apt-get install at ). It allows scheduling commands to be executed at specific time. In your particular case, it would be used as such: echo " nmcli ...
