Incoming connections won't display in conky


My outgoing connections work, but conky seems to think there are no incoming ones. Any ideas?

Hi,

By chance are you speaking about a sea shell?

Or are you speaking about the KDE 'konqueror'?

If so what errors are you getting? What are the conditions when attempt to use the application?

I think what is meant is http://conky.sourceforge.net/
which can be a bit confusing.

Maybe there are no incoming connections? too simple, I suppose.

From the command line, check ifconfig to verify Rx bytes and Tx bytes are changing as you use the system. If everything is okay, then check the syntax of your $HOME/.conkyrc file.

Here is what I have in my network section of my conkyrc:

${color black}Network:${color white} ${addr br0}
${color black}Download:${color white} ${totaldown br0}
${color black}Speed:${color white} ${downspeed br0}kB/s${color black}
${color black}Upload:${color white} ${totalup br0}
${color black}Speed:${color white} ${upspeed br0}kB/s${color black}


I'm using VirtualBox and host networking, hence I monitor br0 rather than eth0 or eth1. Most people will use eth0.

I hope this helps.

Hi,

I've never used conky so I couldn't advise. I'll look at it for possible use. Most of operations are at the cli. I do use xfce and on occasion kde.

The trouble is that ifconfig shows rxbytes and txbytes. It doesn't show bytes originating from incoming connections and bytes originating for outgoing connections.

By using the word "it," do you mean ifconfig or conky? If you mean conky and ifconfig is displaying correctly, then check the syntax for typographical errors in the conkyrc file.

If you mean ifconfig is not displaying properly then you have a network issue, not a conky issue.
