Can't access server through D-link 624


My Linux (Novel 10.1) won't connect to the internet through my D-link router. I am not using the wireless feature, but I think that a port is not open to the Linux machine. When I removed my router and connected the Linux machine directly to the cable modem my connection worked fine.

Can anyone tell me what to do with the D-link router that will allow the Linux machine to pass through?

Thanks in advance,

Steve

You would have to be a bit more specific, there are a lot of things that could be the problem. It seemed that you were suggesting that one particular port was closed, if that is so, other services should still be accessible. What ports are not working?

It could also be a DHCP issue, MAC filtering issue, and a number of other things.

To access the web interface to control the router, you should open your browser and go to your router's IP address.

To come up with a fix to your issue, you're going have to give a little more information.

Hope this helps.

Still can't access server through D-link 624

with the following command:
/sbin/ifconfig
eth0 RX packets:0 errors:1260
TX packets:36 errors:0
RX bytes:0
lo RX packets:244 errors:0
TX packets:244 errors:0
RX bytes;17860


when I ping the other computer sharing the Dlink, or the Dlink itself:
"Network is unreachable"

I can't tell you much more about the "port" issue because I can't figure out where I saw that error. I think it was on reboot when all the messages are scrolling by.

How else can I provide information, I am brand new to Linux and don't know how?

Thanks again.

Are there any other computers connected to this router that have proper internet access?

can't access server through d-link 624

Yes there is another computer that accesses the internet just fine (XP) and there is also an Xbox360 that is accessing the web through the D-link.

Thanks for the help

Sorry for taking so long to post back, I didn't see your post.

Anyway, from your ifconfig, it looks like you don't have an IP address. What's the output of rcnetwork restart eth0?

On the Linux machine, I tried rcnetwork restart eth0 and it returned "command not found". I tried to "locate" rcnetwork and also go a "command not found".

I really don't know what I am doing on the Linux machine, I can't tell what the directory structure is.

Thanks for the help,

Steve

Well, in SUSE it would be /sbin/rcnetwork

If you still don't have that command, just do ifup eth0

In a super terminal window I typed /sbin/rcnetwork

Usage: /sbin/rcnetwork <action? [<config>] [<interface>] [-o <options>]
actions: start|stop|status|reload|force-relad|try-restart
restart|stop-all-dhcp-clients|restart-all-clients
options: [on]boot, hotplug,manual,check,debug,fake,nm,netcontrol
type=<typelist>,skip=<skiplist>
typelist: space seperated list of interface types
skiplist: space seperated list of interfaces to skip for 'start'

Note:
<config>, <interface> and options [on]boot,hotplug,manual have no effect if service network is controlled by NetworkManager.

ls -la /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg*

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 242 Jun 6 20:13 /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth-id-00:01:02:82:9a:68
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 141 May 2 05:23 /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-lo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 27470 May 2 05:23 /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-template

we had to type all these in . . hopefully there are no errors. Linux is on our other computer.

OK, that rcnetwork thing, you should have typed '/sbin/rcnetwork restart eth0'

Try that.

Also, post the output of 'cat /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth-id-00:01:02:82:9a:68'
