    Internet on fedora 9


    Hi Friends,

    I have just registered to your forum. So a very very .... good morning to alll....

    I have just installed Fedora 9 (Currently I don't have the Fedora 13 DVD) & a XDSL modem which is connected to the LAN port. My connection is a broadband one from BSNL.

    I have created a new device/connection as System->Administration->Network->New->XDSL Connection and provided my username & password.

    The very first time I switched on my Modem everything was fine , the Network Manager automatically get connected, though there was something like SeLinux AVC denial beside it.Then I have activated the eth0 & XDSL connection & easily get connected to the WEB.

    But the very next time I restarted the system the above procedure is not working at all.....

    And I am at the mercy of Windows, because the same modem works fine in Windows....

    I will be very obliged to you people if you please get me out of this trouble , because I am tired off the viruses in the Windows......

    Regards,
    JIKO

    I think Selinux is where to look. Open your firewall configurator. First:
    Code:
    su -
    input password, then:
    Code:
    system-config-firewall
    Find SElinux and disable it and retry to connect. If you get connected you can then find out how to configure SElinux to allow for your connection. I wouldn't disable SElinux altogether as it is a valuable security tool for your machine. If after disabling it you still can't get connected, at least you've narrowed down where the problem is.

    i think selinux is unnecessary for most desktop users, just a firewall and common sense should be enough

    that said, you will have less hardware problems if you use latest fedora (13) unless you have a specific reason not to upgrade
