Can't install Community Applications Plugin - Shared internet from Mac

Recommended Posts

I just started using Unraid and I'm using the trail version. My server is directly connected through an ethernet cable with a Mac.  Also an internet connection is being shared from my Mac through the same ethernet connection. 

 

The issue that I'm having is with installing the Community Applications plugin:

plugin: installing: community.applications.plg
Executing hook script: pre_plugin_checks
plugin: downloading: community.applications.plg ...
plugin: community.applications.plg download failure: Network failure
Executing hook script: post_plugin_checks

 

I've tried recreating the network.cfg file and different DNS: 1.1.1.1, 1.0.0.1 and 8.8.8.8. But it keeps giving me the same error. I do think I have an active internet connection, because the trial version requires an active internet connection. 

 

The current network.cfg data:

# Generated settings:
IFNAME[0]="br0"
DHCP_KEEPRESOLV="yes"
DNS_SERVER1="1.1.1.1"
DNS_SERVER2="1.0.0.1"
DHCP6_KEEPRESOLV="no"
BRNAME[0]="br0"
BRNICS[0]="eth0"
BRSTP[0]="no"
BRFD[0]="0"
DESCRIPTION[0]="Main"
PROTOCOL[0]="ipv4"
USE_DHCP[0]="no"
IPADDR[0]="192.168.2.3"
NETMASK[0]="255.255.255.0"
GATEWAY[0]="192.168.2.1"
USE_DHCP6[0]="yes"
SYSNICS="1"

 

Th shared ethernet settings on my mac:

IPv4 Manually configured

IP addres: 192.168.2.5
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Router: 192.168.2.1
DNS Servers: 1.1.1.1, 1.0.0.1

Have you tried setting the gateway instead of being the router to be the IP of the Mac?  Shared internet is (nowadays) a real oddity in setting up any home network.

 

Also, any change if you use DHCP on the server?
