Installation issues / 12.04 NAT Port Forwarding Issue
« on: August 12, 2014, 03:13:09 am »
Port forwarding doesn't seem to be working, or I'm not understanding how to configure it in webadmin.

Alblasco, you requested this on IRC but I wasn't around.


Code: [Select]
iptables -t nat -vnL

I can confirm that disabling ipv6 solved my issue in LMCE 1204.

I may have fixed this by disabling ipv6 and removing "dns=dnsmasq" (not sure what this does) from vanilla Kubuntu 12.04 as per this post:

I've confirmed this issue exists for me in vanilla Kubuntu 12.04, so it seems independent of LMCE code.

I will take my problem to other forums - thanks to everyone who's offered help so far.

My NICs incase anyone runs into this:

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 01)
03:06.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82541PI Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 05)

From the video end, this is a good resource:

I'm not sure, but likely haswell is not supported in 1004 either. I think the goal with 1204 is to support more of the small form factor and power efficient mini pcs (like intel NUC).

I've asked the same question as you in the past and never received a clear answer or recommendation.  Ultimately I found it best to buy the same hardware that the devs have (they often discuss in the wiki, forums, on IRC, etc). You still run into the odd issue but it is far easier to get a fix when they can reproduce bugs at their end.

On the other hand, they'd of course be happy to have you buy something different so you can contribute by making LMCE compatible with a larger hardware base :)

Installation issues / Re: 12.04 - firewall issues?
« on: August 06, 2014, 04:23:33 am »
I applied the updated files supplied by Alblasco. (from reply #9) to /usr/pluto/bin/ (replacing original)
firewall.php (from reply #5) to /var/www/lmce-admin/operations/network/firewall.php (replacing original)

Rebooted core.

still unable to 'ping' an internet web page by name or address from the core OR a workstation getting IP from the core.

can anyone else confirm?


Alblasco's updated scripts worked for me, after a rule reset. I'm not an "IDIOT" but clicking that button did help matters :P

I'd like to see if I can figure out if this is an issue specific to kubuntu 1204 and my hardware and if it is independent of LinuxMCE. I'm going to try the following:

* Install Kubuntu 1204 desktop (w/no LinuxMCE)
* Configure NAT using something like
* Verify if problem still exists.

If the problem disappears then I guess it's something specific to the LMCE implementation of NAT.

I think these two provided full download but 0 upload.

To muddy the waters further:

Initially my tests were done via

Some others I've used give me full download rates but time out during the upload portion of the test.

Not sure if different tests transmit packets using different protocols, so this may be a routing issue specific to a certain protocol? I'm out of my league here!

Installation issues / 12.04 NAT Speed Issues [SOLVED]
« on: August 05, 2014, 04:26:07 am »
I am limited by my 1204 core to less than 1Mbit/s internet download speed for machines on my internal network.

My ISP is a 30Mbit/s connection. I can get the full download speed when testing from the core itself. I can transfer files from the core to machines on the internal network at well over 30Mbit/s. It appears there is a bottleneck somewhere between the internal NIC and the external NIC (i.e software).

I have a production core running 1004 which does not exhibit this issue. The above issue occurred when I installed 1204 on this same machine (separate hard drive) - so this is a controlled test.

Anyone else experienced this?

EDIT: Disabling ipv6 in 1204 resolved this.

The new scripts permit communication between the core and devices on the internal network. The core does not route internet traffic to the internal network unless the firewall is disabled via webadmin. Let me know what info I can provide.

I'm having the same issue on the 1204 install I did last night. Will test your scripts as soon as SWMBO allows.

Are you going to go with 1204 or 1004?

The former may open up more hardware options for you but may have more functional issues as it is still alpha - It's the best choice if you are proficient in linux and willing to fix some things on your own with help from the community.

The later is the inverse.

Users / Upgrading to 1204 - considerations
« on: July 15, 2014, 06:48:35 pm »
I’m running 1004 and one of my MDs just kicked the bucket. Trying to decide if I should bite the bullet and upgrade to 1204 and buy a newer replacement MD, or try to find some cheap older hardware that will work with 1004.

In terms of moving to 1204, from the ticket list in svn, the only things that jump out at me as maybe being a deal breaker for my family’s use cases are

Have these issues been reproduced by others, or can anyone comment on the usability of myth/usb-uirt in 1204?

Any general comments on the stability of 1204 would be appreciated too.

Hi Tschak,

Sorry for my newbness, I'm not sure how to get a backtrace and a quick google search on this forum/domain didn't help. If you can point me to instructions I'd be happy to try.

When I remove the event, the router seemed to come back yes. But I was having an issue with no on screen orbiter on my hybrid and z-wave devices not working until I did a full reboot. I can take a closer look when I'm back home.
