View Full Version : [all variants] just got my wlan0 working... but now my ssh tunnels don't work

August 8th, 2008, 06:29 PM
Finally got the new wireless card installed and configured. I disabled the wired card simply by commenting out the lines for it in the /etc/network/interfaces

My problem is now that the machine is wireless, mysql can't be reached so I issue:

# /etc/init.d/mysql restart
Starting MySQL database server: mysqld . . . . . . . . . . . . . . failed!

I fixed it by editing the /etc/mysql/my.cnf and changing this line:

bind-address =

To the machine's wireless IP address:

bind-address =

Now everything is working... my question is, why did I have to change this? It worked fine using the wired NIC without this mod and the IP address is the same [] :?:

Also, my putty ssh tunnel doesn't work any more. I used it in the past to via mythweb securely (http://localhost:20400 in my browser would tunnel mythweb and it no longer works).
