Sidux/Useable applications/Local networks managing
From Wikibooks, open books for an open world
- One of tools for wired and wirelles networks managing is an application made by sidux developers - Ceni.
- There is Ceni network configuration guide for the chapter: Sidux/Installation/Ceni
- When you configure the network, it doesn't need any more your attention.
- But if you change an access point often I suggest to install any graphic network configurator.
- Wicd is a default network configurator for XFCE so install it as root:
apt-get install wicd
- 1. You will be asked for adding a new user to "netdev" group - mark it with "space" bottom as "x" and click OK.
- 2. Re-boot your computer.
- 3. Open Wicd from desktop panel-> Preferences tab-> Network Interfaces:
- a. For Wireless type: wlan0
- b. For Wired type: eth0 and click on-> OK.
- 4. Refresh network list and find yours-> mark for Automatically connection to this network.
- 5. If you use wireless connection open "Properties" and type your network key if required.
- Network Manager is an application for GNOME environment but it works on others anyway.
- It manages mobiles networks too from 0.7 version.
