Unfortunately I can't log in to the Web GUI or ssh

I don't know if it means anything but I'mm getting quite a few failures highlighted in red during boot pertaining to NFS & samba

OK, run:
Code: [Select]
nano /etc/network/interfaces

and try making it read:-

Code: [Select]
# The loopback network interface
auto lo

# The primary network interface
# auto eth0
# allow-hotplug eth0
# iface eth0 inet static
#     address 192.168.2.150
#     netmask 255.255.255.0
#     gateway 192.168.2.1
#     dns-nameservers 192.168.2.1

# The wireless network interface
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static
    address 192.168.2.150
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    gateway 192.168.2.1
    dns-nameservers 192.168.2.1

Then rebooting and trying the wireless on 192.168.2.150

so you're commenting out ALL the lines for the first interface .. changing the wireless address to 192.168.2.150 .. and also removing the line:
allow-hotplug wlan0

It's freezing on
"Starting NFS common utilities: statd" again

But I'll leave it and it will probably boot eventually like the last time :)

OK .. you can bung the interfaces file back to how it was when it was working on ethernet if you like:

Code: [Select]
# The loopback network interface
auto lo

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet static
    address 192.168.2.150
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    gateway 192.168.2.1
    dns-nameservers 192.168.2.1

and reboot.

and I'll no doubt see you tomorrow .. where we'll try work out what's up with samba and NFS

Ok I've re-edited the /etc/network/interfaces file back as per your last post and rebooted, so as it stands now with only the usb wireless adaptor connected, I cannot connect to the Web GUI or ssh.

There is still a lot of errors showing up during the boot sequence mostly pertaining to samba & NFS services and it hangs at the line "Starting NFS common utilities: statd" for a considerable time before eventually booting.

Anyway I'm off to work, hopefully we can sort this out later today

Thanks for your help and patience so far

As it is it'll only be working with the ethernet cable till we can work out why that wireless section in /etc/network/interfaces didn't work, and where these SAMBA and NFS errors are coming from.

but it would be most helpful if we could first work out how to copy and paste from PuTTY.
(the screenshots aren't searchable, I can't copy/paste from them, and they take up unnecessary room on the server)

According to the PuTTY manual:-

Quote
PuTTY's copy and paste works entirely with the mouse. In order to copy text to the clipboard, you just click the left mouse button in the terminal window, and drag to select text. When you let go of the button, the text is automatically copied to the clipboard

So you'd just use your left mouse button to drag-select the text you want to copy, then release the left mouse button .. then go to your web browser and paste in the normal way.

Does this work ?

Nearly.... it depends on what you consider the normal way, normally I would right click then select paste from the dropdown menu but with Putty I have to middle click   then paste, anyway the important thing is it works so I'm good to go

Thanks

Any reason for using PuTTY? Judging by the screen shots, are you not using Peppermint?
If you are then you could try using ssh (might haveto install ssh or openssh-client
Also the copy paste issue might be down to the terminal emulator you are using
I personally find Terminal from XFCE very useful, but Lxterminal from LXDE is also good

Yes peppermint 3


I did try ssh directly from the terminal but it wouldn't accept the password and I know I was inputing the right password, all I got was "permission denied,
but maybe as you said I need to install something to make it work from the terminal, but I wouldn't know what to install

Just out of interest, checked in synaptic and it seems I already have openssh-client installed but not ssh

should I install ssh ?




Many thanks


Graeme

NOPE .. you don't need it.

Just open a terminal in Peppermint and run:
Code: [Select]
ssh root@192.168.2.150

you can exit the ssh session at any time with:
Code: [Select]
logout

Now you tell me.... I've just spent half an hour working that out, here's me thinking I was clever :)

Heh .. I've only just noticed you were online  :P

Also, I hadn't noticed you were in Peppermint (well spotted SeZo) .. I thought you were in Windows .. PuTTY's cut/paste are slightly different in Linux, but then again in Linux you don't need PuTTY :)
