Is your router still doing DHCP? It needs to for install of #Amahi.

Could it be a driver issue? Might need to do DVD install.

Hope you give it another try.

Is that he IP address you set in the amahi.org profile? You should only use < 100 as Amahi reserves 100 or > for DHCP on your network.

Can you access via SSH or directly with a terminal?

It may need restarted a few times to get network working.

Hi,
192.168.1.100 is the ip its given on install my Amahi.org is 192.168.1.10..... I have rebooted 4-5 times and ive only get as far as reboot to black screen login, I can log in at that point and input password and then the mac address comes up, which is how i find it on the router, then i cannot access it from anywhere, dont know how to access it from shell login, and web login like ive said constant time outs.
Have no idea where to go from this point seems im going backwards?

If it's not getting assigned the .10 address then there is something wrong.

You didn't assign it a static IP address in your router for .100 did you?

Is there only one router and no switches in your network?

That might be causing issues.

#Amahi is designed for a basic network. We don't have resources to test on the many different network configurations.

Might help to shut down all but the server, a client, and your router. Then try and the install from scratch.

BTW ensure the amahi.org profile is set properly for your network.

It's done when #Amahi is installed.

I have heard of this issue only twice. It was due to the user not following the Fedora install instructions. They deviated and it some how caused the issue.

if you can access the server via command line, you could check:

Code: Select all

ip address
Also try restarting the network service:

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager
I presume you only have one network interface on this server, correct?
