problem with Linux box on network

I have a small home Ethernet network.  One machine is running
Slackware Linux 13.0, KDE 4.2.4 and KMail 1.11.4 and Firefox. The
other runs Windows XP.  My ISP is Time-Warner and I have a broadband
connection to the Internet.

Everything was working fine with the network, but suddenly email
downloads from Time-Warner's Road Runner POP server started to get
erratic.  At first it seemed that rebooting helped, but now I can't
download my email at all.

I can usually ping the POP server, and I can always download my email
from the Windows machine, so it appears there is nothing wrong on the
server side.  I can generally send email (although it appears to be a
little slow, and sometimes a perfectly ordinary email gets stuck in
the outbox).

Coincidentally, Firefox on the Linux box is also behaving
erratically.  HTML processing get's stuck on "Waiting for
xyz.com...".  HTML requests do not time out at the server, but the
page never comes.  (Again, Firefox on the Windows machine works
normally.)

The fact that I have problems with *both* KMail (a KDE app)  *and*
Firefox
makes me suspect there is a problem with the underlying TCP/IP
plumbing on the Linux machine.  Is there a buffer overflowing
somewhere?  A corrupted cache?  Is there a log file I can look at?

Thanks & Best Regards,

Vwaju

My first guess would be ipv6 is enabled, but the router isn't
ipv6 capable.  Try disabling it.

networking a linux box
Hi, I've got a small home network of two RPC's, a WIN.XPPro laptop (an Alpha pro), and a shuttle pc dualbooting between win98se and redhat linux. The two RPC's will talk to all the other machines whether the pc is in win98 or linux. The alpha will talk to both the RPC's, but will only talk to the shuttle when it is in win98. When the shuttle is in linux, the alpha asks for a user name and password to connect, but although these are correct it just refuses to connect. When the shuttle is in win98 it will talk to all the other machines, but when it is in redhat,...

problem networking Linux and XP
I have Centos and XP installed on separate machines and connected using a crossover cable. I configured the network cards of both machines with static IP addresses. I have disabled the firewalls on both machines. The problem is: I can ping the Centos machine from the XP machine. However, when I try to ping XP from Centos, the ping request arrives at the XP machine but no reply arrives back at the Centos machine. I would appreciate some help with this.

Odd linux networking problem
Hi, I'm currently dealing with a very strange networking problem. I suspect it's the OS (Debian testing) on the client that is causing the problem, but as a matter of fact, I'm not absolutely sure. We're running a home network of about 10 PCs, which used to be connected with an 802.11b-network with a D-Link WLAN AP and DSL router (DL-713P). Now we're migrating from to a 802.11g AP (Linksys WAP54G) for the Wireless, which will eventually be connected to a Linux server, but currently is connected to one of the three ethernet ports on the D-Link router. Now, we've started...

weird linux networking problem
Just wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this, and if so, if they have any idea what could be causing it. A number of our boxes are HP dx5150 running Red Hat 4.3 (kernel 2.6.9-42). The onboard NIC is Broadcom BCM5751 Gigabit. Every now and then, these boxes lose contact with the network: we find that the central network switch (Cisco) has shut down the port, having apparently detected that the MAC address of the connected box has changed. Once the security on the port is reset, everything continues as normal. (The incorrect MAC address detected by the switch is always 08:00:45:00:FF:F8.) Obviously, this is now a fairly old version of Red Hat, and we've found that an upgrade to kernel 2.6.9-55 seems to solve the problem (we have application-related constraints limiting the kernels to which we can upgrade.) However, it would be really good to understand this problem. Any ideas?

I have Linux! I have Linux!
Ok, after two days of trying to get Windos 1900 installed and working , I sat down an hour ago and installed Linux. In an hour. Smirk. Ok, I will be honest. I did have some problems, but I believe they were of my own ignorance. 0) I started with trying to install Suse. However, I couldn't get it to install. Why? Because I didn't read the menu. There is a startup menu and the first entry is boot to harddisk. I thought that was the thing to do so I did it about 4 times. Then I gave up. However, I went back to it and subsequently realized that I should have chosen the 2nd men...

Networking Under Linux
Hi, i am new to Linux, but have been running windows machines for years now. I have two boxes running dual boot systems, Windows XP/Suse Linux 9.1 Both boxes are connected via ethernet to a Zyxel 643 router complete with ADSL modem. Both can see the ,net and have no trouble browsing,emailing etc. I have setup Samba so the windows shares are available, but how do I go about setting up NFS/NIS to share part of my system to the other machine i.e. file sharing. I want to use this directory as a network archive. Regards Bob Moore On Wed, 19 May 2004 22:31:21 +0100, bobmoore wrote: > Hi, i a...

My Linux is not your Linux
To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy! So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia, and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters, throwing feces at one another and beating their chests pretending to know something. My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love, of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the monkeyhouse of COLA) they remind me of myself: practical, freedom-loving, anti-corporate. Here in COLA however they remind me of monkeys or spoiled brats or worse, corporate sysadmins. My Linux is not your Linux. It is the human Linux that acknowledges that Linux involves human work to create, that although it is free you are not entitled to it, that although it is created in large part by volunteers, they deserve to be paid for their gifts with at least gratitude. And that monkeys and self-entitled brats and sysadmins never thank anyone. yarmfelder@yahoo.com writes: > To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy!

Proper routes for linux machine with two network ports to same network
Hi, I run a Fedora Core 4 system with two network devices eth0 (assigned 10.10.10.30) and eth1 (assigned 10.10.10.31). The local network is 10.10.10.0, the gateway is 10.10.10.1 # route Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 10.10.10.1 * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 eth1 10.10.10.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0 10.10.10.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1 169.254.0.0 * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth1 default 10.10.10.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth1 default 10.10.10.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0 Although rules to 10.10.10.0 exists for both eth interfaces, It seems that traffic going to the local network at 10.10.10.* goes thru eth0 if no interface specified. If I pull out the network cable at eth0, ping 10.10.10.100 -> Destination Host Unreachable ping 10.10.10.100 -I eth0 -> Destination Host Unreachable ping 10.10.10.100 -I eth1 -> Works fine! Similar problems exist for the internet outgoing connections with the default and 10.10.10.1 gateway routes. How do I add the routes properly so that the machine will look at which interface is working or sort of, and choose the correct route?

Linux Network

I can see internet from my linux, My ping, ifconfig everything works fine, but I dont know how to access other computers from mine. Can someone help me out here? And i know this qn does not belong to this group, but can someone help me to install USB stuf in my linuc, I want my linux to see my usb harddrive and memory sticks? thanks a lot for your time. Try opening a file browser window and, in the location, type "smb://my_host" or something similar. For your USB stuff, plug it in and if it doesn't automagically mount try right-clicking on the desktop and see if it shows up in the "disks" subdirectory.
