  1. ill try disabling the WAN side config and see what that does and the virtual server is the same as port forwarding on my router. as for the firewall that all checked out and its fine number of ports open is minimal as the only users will be me and at the most two other people
  2. Right im trying to set up a personal ftp. Here's how its working so far internally using IP address fine, performs as expected externally it all falls down. im using a no-ip.com farwarder but even when i put in my IP address i still get the login box for my router when i do http://ip address when i do ftp://ip address i get 503 login failed. On my router i have set a virtual server with port 21 UDP to my ip address enabled the ftp server option so im stuck as to whats missing?
  3. nice, looks like Gentoo might get another large number of followers now
  4. if your unsure get a livecd and boot that to see if everything is detected it should be, the main problem with laptop is the fuction buttons IME

    where are all of the inbox messages kept as i cant find then! Also can i import them into Entourage on my mac? My linux box will be leaving me for a while or forever as the insurance man might want it :( so i need to back up now. Little of the mark here but if anyone knows how or if i can install Kontact on a mac id be eternally greatful
  7. cheers guys, ill have a play with that when i can get a spare hour :)
  8. its xp the win machine. Like ive said though the only thing that ive done it set to allow the ip address in the conf file. in windows its just set up as normal ie. Shared folders and all of the default names taken
  9. Know a little about samba so have set it to allow address that start with 10.0. and i can access the laptop by doing smb://ip address then it gives me a login but there is no password set on the win machine so i cant access the shares.
  10. gotta say that im goin to have a serious play with Ubuntu next cause of the rave reviews so thats where i think im headed next
  11. eth1 is my NIC which is what im connected with now eth0 could be firewire im not sure eth2 should be the card as thats what it assigns at boot but iwconfig gives eth0, eth1 and sit0 doing ifconfig sit0 down ifconfig sit0 up gives me the info on it has it been IPv6 in IPv4 so i think that this is the firewaire socket as thats one of the connection options in MCC. also the info for eth0 gives me a massive MAC address so im more than confused by this
  12. nothing works, doing ifconfig eth0 down ifconfig eth0 up brought it up in ifconfig but it wasnt the wifi card :( Im guessing that its the PCMCIA slot rather than the card because in system>config>kde>info>pcmcia it says that there is no controller detected oh and /etc/init.d/network start gives Setting network parameters: [ OK ] Bringing up loopback interface: [ OK ] Bringing up interface eth1: [ OK ] Bringing up interface eth2: orinoco_cs device eth2 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization. [FAILED]
  13. that doesnt do squat! How can i remove it from starting at boot then i can try to config it again
