I have been having massive problems over the past week, installing and setting up what is supposed to be my schools brand new intranet/VLE server. First off, I've had nothing but problems with installing and configuring the RAID systems on it, but that isn't a concern of mine anymore as I think I cracked that.
What are consistent problems for me are as follows;
Static IP address - I seem to be setting everything up right in it but when I go static I lose internet connectivity.
Proxy Server - I have got to a point where I can apt-update through my proxy, but I can't use wget to get anything I want (namely Webmin) where am I going wrong?
Webmin - See proxy problems, the one time I did manage to get it to install I couldn't connect to it at all though!
Frustration is mounting, I need some help & advice from anyone that is willing!
Well on ubuntu I personally just edit the /etc/environment and add
Just change the proxy port to your own specific details.
Restart and it should fix wget for you
To start with the very basics, as I've made mistakes with these in the past!
1) Is the IP address you're using for static definitely free?
2) How are you setting it, with vi?
3) Are you setting the proxy through the GUI or with vi again?
@siuko - Excellent :) That's sorted that, now it's telling me it can't find the key to install (jcameron.asc)
@3s-gtech - I'm using ubuntu server so everything is being done through command line, I originally set up the IP settings in the install, I've reverted to using DHCP for the time being but when I switch back to using static I will be using an IP which is definitely free and using vi/nano to set it.
Realised I had missed -key from the key... D'OH!
Okay, I'm trying to set the machine up with a static IP address again and although my network settings look right whenever I do a ping command it defines the websites IP address but doesn't receive any packets back.
Okay, firstly, sorry for the double post. Secondly, I spoke to my county support company and they've sorted it out for me, looks like I had a conflict with my IP addresses somewhere.
