Question I cannot update distros in AQEMU.


Hi.

I cannot update distros in AQEMU 0.9.2 even though I can access the internet on them via Firefox.

Is there a setting(s) I should change? I did recently get a new wireless router so maybe that's the cause - although on my host machine it updates fine.

The guest distros I have on AQEMU are Debian 8 & 9 x64, Solus MATE, Ubuntu MATE 16.04.

Unhappy

I just installed Solus Budgie 3 and installation was fine - it even detected my location. After install I cannot update or even get any internet on Firefox.

If a VM client distro can connect with browser AND you didn't put any proxy in then I'd suspect that it should connect to update. This would assume you have no blocking of ports.

Try command line update and see what it says.

Hi jefro.

Actually come to think of it -- I hit the home icon in Firefox and it seemed to be online but maybe that was only a cached page. As it stands I cannot get internet access on Firefox or update via the terminal on any of my vms.

I never tinkered with any proxies.

Do you refer to blocking of ports on my wireless router?

Here's the private IP address on one vm [image attached]. So there is no DHCP being used?

The image is on host correct?

Maybe we need to start all over on these clients. We may need to find out how they attach to the host in the VM setting. Bridged or NAT? The choice may affect how you connect.

That image was from the guest (vm).

Under Network in AQEMU - all vms use 'Default' as the 'Network card model' and 'Use the user mode network stack' as 'Connection mode'.

Opps, didn't read that correctly. Yes, client. doh.

VM's like qemu use a virtual router. Some physical routers that use dhcp offer gateway and dns. You usually have to add in dns entry to NAT networked VM's. If ping is available and not blocked then you could test to google ip address by ip. Command dig or nslookup right now should fail by name.

Ping also does not work.

Then I'd look to host maybe. Is it blocking this client?

I've never had any issues like that. Guess you could boot to a usb install of some distro and try this again.

I disabled ufw (on host) and the vms can access the internet. However I re-enabled ufw and tried the vms again and they can still access the internet so I don't think the firewall was the issue. All seems to be well for some unknown reason.

You're welcome jefro. I'm puzzled though as to what fixed the issue.

Your talent? Dumb luck? Pick one.


Probably would take longer to figure out. Guess you could try to replicate it to see if it does it again. I am only wild guessing the security somehow changed upon re-enable.

I've had things with Linux not work; went and did something and suddenly things worked properly.

Could of been talent, enabling and disabling something or just plain fate:-

"the security somehow changed upon re-enable"

You could be onto something there alright.

Else perhaps an update could have fixed it?
