I want to start using a VPN and would rather have my own server for it so was going to buy a kimsufi 2g with ubuntu installed on it, Have been looking on the openvpn website but cant find any tutorials on how to setup openvpn on ubuntu.
so i have a server running on the network on 192.168.0.2 gatewway of 192.168.0.1. I am trying to setup a DVR for remote access and all this was working previously. I have setup the server for a VPN server and remote access, DHCP and ROUTER services are not enabled on the server, neither is NAT. This was working previously, now when i try forward port 8016, and connect, it will not open.
I want to setup a VPN, probally more just for the experiance and to learn how to etc, but i also print remotely and view cameras remotely etc and i though it might be safer then port forwarding hundreds of different ports.First question, would it be better or safer to set it up in Windows XP or windows Server as i would have to purchase windows server. I have XP and windows 7. and, what exactly is a VPN. I have done some reading up, but was woundering how exacly i would for instance, remotely view my DVR (cameras) over a VPN. Also, i want the server to be a remote HDD to store and access all data remotely, Backing up etc. This i think VPN is more made for right?And, i will need a server (computer running at all times) to setup a VPN right? as where the router is always on and accessable. I can acheive this and i think this is what i need.So there it is, im new to this side of things done about all i can with the old router and looking at extending my knowledge. Also i wouldnt mind it being SAFE.
I want to set up VPN at home so my friends can access network shares on my LAN and stuff. I have used this tutorial:(url) ?v=1s5JxMG06L4&feature=related so users are set up, and port forwarding on router is done as well. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate, and VPN is set up on this machine. The issue is that my friends cannot connect to my VPN from another Windows machine. When they try to connect it is asking them for user and password but later on after authentication they receive error 720 which says connection could not be established. When I went to the network connections and then to the properties of VPN (incoming connections) it says no hardware capable of accepting calls is installed.
(i have 2 PCs (1 desktop and 1 laptop) both running Windows XP connected to my modem/router. the desktop is connected through a wireless adapter, and the laptop is connected directly using an ethernet cable. i have run Windows "Network Setup Wizard" on both PCs and they are part of the same workgroup with File and Printer Sharing enabled. this is as far as I've gone in setting up my LAN and everything works fine. i am able to see both PCs under My Network Neighbourhood and can access files from either PC just fine. both PCs are also able to ping each other by IP address and comptuer name.the problem is this only lasts temporarily. for some reason, after a random amount of time (anywhere between 1 hour to a few days) the desktop will "drop off" from My Network Neighborhood on the laptop. when i try to click on the desktop or workgroup in Network Neighbourhood i suddenly get the error "You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have permissions. The network Path was not found." after this happens i am no longer able to ping the desktop from the laptop either by the IP address or computer name.however I am still able to ping the laptop from the desktop by IP address and computer name, although in Network Neighbourhood the laptop can no longer be seen as part of the workgroup. I am still able access the laptop and its files from the desktop using the \*computer name* command and this will bring up the laptop name again in Network Neighbourhood.one more thing i noticed is, once I've pinged the laptop from the desktop i found that i can again ping the desktop from the laptop, but only with the IP address. If I try to ping the desktop by computer name it still times out. oweer, this also lasts temporarily... after a while, the laptop is also not able to ping the desktop IP address again.the only solution so far is to restart the router. once the router restarts and both PCs reconnect to it, then the LAN is working fine again... that is, until the problem above starts up once again! cry.gifmy modem/router model is D-Link DSL-2640B.some additional info:
- i've assigned static IPs to both PCs so they always have the same IP address from the router.
- i've tried disabling the built-in Windows firewall on both PCs but the problem remains.
- i do not have any other anti-virus or firewall programs installed.
- i've disabled "Computer Browser" service on the laptop so that the desktop is always the Master Browser.
I have a small home network. My goal is to use Windows Server 2003 R2 to setup a DNS Server that can create a few simple names for some devices on my LAN, such as my printer. My DNS server will forward other inquiries (like google.com) to OpenDNS. Additionally, I don't want to setup a domain controller for my network. I wish to continue using workgroups,how to setup a Windows DNS Server on a workgroup. My biggest confusion is the FQDN of my name server. By default, it's setup as "server.", where 'server' is the name of my Windows Server 2003 machine. My workgroup is named 'Home'. So I tried 'server.home', but this does not resolve. What DNS suffix do my other machines on the network use by default? Is my domain name on the network really my workgroup name? Another thing I want to avoid is configuring a DNS Suffix for every single client machine on my network in their NIC properties for IPv4. I have a D-Link router, and if I do an "ipconfig /all" on my machine, I see that my DNS suffix is 'router', which is the name of my D-Link router. I try setting my DNS Server FQDN as 'server.router' and that doesn't work either, so I'm out of ideas.
I recently signed up for Centurylink Prism TV and internet, they use a Cisco DDR2200 (modem+wireless router combo) which I've come to realize is only a "g" router, so I purchased a cheap Belkin N150 (which I intend to use as my main router). I've turned the wireless function off on the Cisco and have an ethernet cable running from a LAN port on the Cisco to the internet port on the Belkin.
The issue I'm having is how do I set up the IP addresses/DHCP servers for both routers? By default, the Cisco's IP address is 192.168.1.254 (I know, weird right?) with a DHCP range of 192.168.1.63 - 192.168.1.253. Whereas the Belkin's IP address is 192.168.2.1 . I guess I'm sort of at a loss on how to set this up to optimize my network.
I want to set up my own home wireless network for the first time. Also this is the first time I'm using wireless router.nd trying to set up the network.Currently, I have ADSL+ router device that is configured in route mode and it has PPPoE credentials stored, so until now, I use ethernet cable to connect it to the ADSl router and everything works fine (Automatic IP, DHCP on notebook). Notebook also has wireless adapter, so I bought asus wireles router.This was supposed to be an easy install. According to the instructions all I need is to use this ethernet cable to connect to WAn port on wireless router and to follow Quick set up instruction. But this quick installation procedure fails.When I try to figure out why, I came accross to the fact that existing ADSl router has 192.168.1.1 and this new asus WiFi has also 192.168.1.1
I am buying a router with wireless soon and i am setting up an ADSL account.I only have one computer that will connect to this router.The router will be based in the living room area where the phone line is.My room (where the computer is situated) is quite far from the living room and i am not keen to drilling holes through roofs to wire some LAN cable.My plan is to use a wireless dongle in my pc to connect to the router for internet. Will this affect the speed of my downloads off the internet at all? will it be the same as if i was using a lan cable?I know file sharing over the network via WAN is slow but will my internet be?
So I have AT&T U-verse and am teaching myself networking and am wanting to mess around in creating my home network and set up static IPs for my devices. I know how to set them up, but I guess AT&T is saying that they have to allocate the static IPs....pretty much they are saying I have to pay them so they can say ok I can use the IP addresses from xxx-xxx-x-10 to and then depnding on how many I want to have depends on how much I pay. This makes no sense to me. Why should I have to pay my ISP for static IP address, from my understanding those are things
Im trying to rebuilt my parents home network. This is the general layout of what Im trying to go for when everyting is said and done.
modem---router1----switch1----router2---switch2 l l l l l l l l l l l l-direct-tv box l l l l l l l l l l l-blu-ray player l l l l l l l l l l-xbox 360 l l l l l l l l l
and i dont know what switch 2 is yet because my dad ordered it and it has come it yet, all i know is its a linksys Now the big problem I keep having is keeping everything up and running for more than a day. Ive already configured router 2 to a staic ip address of 192.168.1.151 and disabled DHSP server thing which cleared up some of the inital issues I was having. But I continue to be plagued with issues of computers saying there are duplicate names on the network and the internet only working on some devices most of the time and the internet going out completely after a day or two. Now when the internet only goes out for some devices its usually limited to everything thats not hooked directly into router 1.but everything hooked directly into router 1 still has internetand the basic hard restart of everything does nothing to solve the problem. The only real way Ive been able to solve things on a large scale for a short time frame is to unhook everything and setup reouter 1 and the computers that hook into it on day one. come back on day two and setup switch one and comback the next day and so on and so forth. and usually by day 5 everything has worked for about a day or two then Im back with nothing working.
I run a certain program in my PC and I need to make its data available to an iPhone app.I would like to broadcast it over WIFI from the laptop.How can I set up a simple wifi network so the iPhone can connect as described?I was thinking of wireless router connected directly to the PC.
I currently have one wireless router in my house. Of course its hooked up the the modem, but i also have it hooked up directly to my desktop considering the router is on the desk where my computer is.I recently moved to a new house.One of the rooms has a huge brick wall in it, unfortunately the computer is in that room.AND, its on the far left side of the house, so the other side of the wall barely gets any signal (Enough to work, but it bounces and only gets about 2 Megabytes Per Second, which is awful, because the router sends out 20 megabytes per second due to our internet plan.) Now, my room is all the way on the far right side of the house, in my room, i get barely any connection at all, 20% is normal in my room. I have my Playstation 3 in my room, so I had to wire an ethernet cable from the wireless router, up through the attic, to my PS3. I can now get 20 MBPS while playing video games. While that is great, i still don't have a wireless connection back there.
What i want to know is, can i plug in another wireless router to the ethernet cable in my room, sending out another signal. So basically, im plugging up a wireless router to another wireless router, and want them to both send out internet.I plan on getting a gaming laptop in December and will be playing it most of the time in my room. I need to know if this is possible, and if it is, how do i do it?First off, let me state that moving the computer or router in front of the brick wall is completely out of question.Also, know a lot of stuff about computers, but know almost nothing about networking.
Well this process is self explanatory, setting up the network is easy but im running into trouble with my wireless devices connecting to the strongest signalIm not exactly sure if there is a fix for this yet or if they have not made a protocol to fix it. I have a big house with solid wall in which i have setup 3 wifi's. 1st Modem/wifi Router, 2nd Wifi access point, 3rd wifi access point. Now the problem im having is moving between the access points my devices such as my ipad are changing from one access point to the next whilst moving throughout the house (that is until it loses the first signal I believe or you turn your ipad wifi off/on so it reconnects back to the strongest/closest access point).
I have a question regarding setting up a wireless access point on a network. Lets say my router is going to connect to a switch. The switch puts out 192.168.4. addresses. I want the wireless router to do the same. So I turn off DHCP.Everything works fine and everyone can communicate. Here is my question. How do I ever connect back to the wireless router if I need to change the settings? If the wireless routers address is 192.168.1.1 I cannot get back to it since i am now on the 4. subnet. I have also tried changing the router's ip to an address on the subnet such as 192.168.4.100 but on two different routers this didnt work. One didnt me and said there was a conflict with the WAN IP. The other one would not let me get on the internet.
We want to set up a wireless user group in our town between a few friends and new people who are interested to join. As far as I heard I don't need a ICASA License for the 5.8GHz Frequency if we are using it for a non profit orginization, so we may use that.
1 x Routerboard 3 x Radio Plugin Boards 3 x 120degree Antennas
to set up a 360degree HS (Highsite).Then at each person's house we will need:
1 x Routerboard 1 x Radio Plugin Board 1 x Whichever Antenna
Is that correct? Then also if we wanto run VoIP on our network, how do I do that? Basicly we want to use it for gaming, file sharing and VoIP. No Internet of anything else.
I have been trying to get this setup for 2 days now and so far NADA.....
Router: Linksys E3000 - below is a list of all devices connected (hardwired T568B) to the 4 ports with a laptop connected via wireless
1. Main PC - motherboard: ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z (dual GB LAN ports) 2. Media Server - motherboard: MSI Z68A-GD80 (dual GB LAN ports) 3. Test Bench AMD PC 4. WD TV Live
Currently: I have all 3 computers running Windows 7 and connected to a Homegroup. I have given the correct permissions to enable sharing of files between each of the 3 computers and can transfer files from one PC to the next w/o any issues.
Desired: I want to connect my Main PC and Media Sever with a crossover cable using the 2nd LAN port on each motherboard, so that I don't have to go through the router to transfer data to and from these 2 PCs. I will have each PC also connected to the Linksys E3000 router via the 1st LAN port on each motherboard to supply the internet connection, so I am also not trying to "share" an internet connection between these 2 PCs. Basically, I want to run my home network through the Linksys E3000 and then a 2nd network for the 2 PCs using the crossover cable.
Current Problem: I disconnected the straight-through cables from the router to each computer from the 1st LAN port. I then connected the crossover cable from the Main PC to the Media Server and setup a new Home network in the Network and Sharing Center in Windows 7. Everything worked and I could transfer data to and from each these 2 PCs, so i know I wired the crossover cable correctly. Then I reconnected the straight-through cables coming from the router to the 1st LAN ports of each mobo, thinking that each PC would auto-detect the internet connection and reacquire my existing home network, enabling an internet connection again. However, this did not happen.
[URL] I also followed this how-to guide on microsoft.com, but when I get to Step 3 where it says that an "Unidentified network icon" will aprear in the Network and Sharing Center, it does not!
From Googling, reading, and troubleshooting I believe I know 2 things:
1. All of the hardware is functioning properly - when the straight-through cables from the router are disconnected, the 2 PCs are networked through the crossover cable and files can be transferred.
2. The problem is with Windows 7 somewhere - I think?
I am looking for an equipment recommendation for setting up an access point/repeater for my home network.
I have comcast > surfboard > d-link dir 655 I want to add another router/access point so I can move the dir655 to my office and have my computers connected over gigbait. All my comcast stuff is setup in the living room, and I would like to setup the access point there. Something like
What is the best way to set up a network. Is the network wizard the way to go? Some of that terminology I dont get relative to hardware in the checklist section. I have a dell Inspiron 530, windows XP pro Sp 3 I have broadband with a westell 7500 router. I have a filtered system on all phone jacks for the signal and plugged in to the router with the phone line to the modem to the dell as primary.Peripherals are epson scanner, HP Officejet pro 8000 wireless ( i have it wired for now. thru the modem. My other PC a HP Model Pavilion d4650e with same OS. It has a linxs wireless usb adapter for Internet supply. I think I have everything I need hardware wise to proceed with the wizard.
setting up networks with multiple locations and multiple wireless points.For example: My sisters' home has here modem in her main computer room, it has a Belkin router hooked to the modem. Then a line goes from there to my nephew's room where I tried to expand their network by adding another router. I really just wanted an access point, but they don't seem to sell these as much as they used to. Anyway, I had it working, but it was two different networks, NETWORK1 and NETWORK2. So they had to swap networks when moving around the house. what would be the best hardware setup to provide both sides of the house with some Hardwired access as well as wifi access? Right now, we have two routers, a DIR615 (or something like that) and a Cisco E1000, and again hardwire going from the main computer room to my nephew's room.Also, in my house, I have lots of stuff... I have an Actiontec Router from FIOS, feeding a small hub as well as a switch in my main room. Which then feeds a Ps3, Wii, laptop, Denon reciever, and Access Point... and also feeds my Apple TimeCapsule, which also feeds my printer. My wireless devices range from cameras, iphones/ipads, and a wifi unit (I forget what it's called, but it connects my DVR wirelessly to my network, and the DVR itself doesn't have wifi).
my question about my setup is, should everything be on one network... as in let the ActionTec handle most of the duties and use switchers and accesspoints to extend the network. Should everything be on the same wireless network and channels? Like if I used my access point to extend, do I want the same settings as my main wireless router, and would that be the same for the Apple Airport Extreme?Also, does having all these wireless networks going create any kind of hinderance on my performance. For example, the PS3 has some sort of wifi in it... it produces a SSID, but I never connect to it. Should I make sure that's off? And in my main room, should I go with just the AirPort extreme over using it and the Wireless Access point.
I have 2 xboxs, 1 is wired and one has the microsoft adapter for wireless.. I have been searching tons of forums to try to solve this issue, and I'm at my end if it! I really need both my nats open, so far I can get 1 nat open while the other one is strict. I have a Cisco DPC3825.
I have an Inspiron 15 Intel N5050. Internet explorer cannot open [URL] This is the factory set home page. After a short while I get a message. A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer. Name: Supportsoft Container Publisher Supportsoft Inc. I haven't heard of this software, so I am worried about down loading a virus if I click on allow. I'm able to access other websites without any problem. How can I restore my homepage?
I have a Time Warner Cable business class service with no static IP, with a wireless modem which is plugged to a CAT5 distribution panel. On the jacks (2 other rooms on the house) I have a Linksys E3000 and a Linksys Valet router for signal boost and gadgets usage (TV, cameras, etc).The main router (TWC) has it's own external IP which TWC assigns to me and internally distributes via DHCP the range 192.168.0.x. With that said:
- The E3000 has a 192.168.0.6 IP -- this is fixed setup on the TWC router (ubee brand) by MAC address - The Valet has a 192.168.0.7 IP -- this is fixed setup on the TWC router (ubee brand) by MAC address - The main router has the 192.168.0.1 as the gateway and web-interface
Whenever I connect something to the E3000, it is distributing the 192.168.1.x range and the valet 192.168.2.x range.That works perfectly for my home based business until I decided to use more stuff on the network such as a IP printer, IP cameras, etc.
- The IP cameras are connected to the E3000 due to signal strength and I have manually assigned them the 192.168.1.15 and 192.168.1.16 IPs and ports 9001 and 9002.
- The printer is connected to the E3000 and I have manually assigned the IP 192.168.1.30.
Issue 1: Port forwarding On the main router (TWC - UBEE) I have tried to setup a port forwarding by informing the Local IP as 192.168.0.6 (E3000 IP), Internal Port 0, Public Interface IP (0.0.0.0), Ext Start Port 9001, Ext End Port 9001, Protocol - Both, Enabled Yes. On the E3000 I did the same config (screen shot attached e3000.png).This is not working properly. I can't get into the camera.
Issue 2: Printer/ The printer is only accessible if I connect to the E3000 (because it is on the 192.168.1.x network)
Issue 3: How to configure all the devices on the same subnet? If I want everyone to be on the 192.168.0.x network, how to configure properly the E3000 and the Valet? I have tried to force them into the same network but it would not work properly. It would not get an IP from the UBEE router (main).
I can't get traditional broadband services, so I've been making due with Verizon's Mobile Broadband service. Problem is, it's expensive and has a 5GB cap per month. I read about powerline networking and thought it sounded good, so I bought all the adapters and a router. Problem is, I didn't have the prior knowledge to realize I also needed a modem as well. How or if I'd be able to set up any sort of modem in my home, considering services like Verizon can't reach me?
I have a PC ready to use that I want to be used for sharing files, pictures and videos on between our multiple PCs in the house hold. I am going to have it constantly running (I have alot of cooling for it) but I need setting it up.I dont know if I should use Ubuntu Server or FreeNAS?
