I recently formated my harddrive and instead of theld fat32 partition for windows partition I used ntfs. I am mounting this partition in /media/windows in debian linux. But it shows a cross (x) symbol above the folder and says I don't have the permission to access it. the permission on the folder is (drwx_ _ _ _ _ _ ) and it is owned by root. So I changed it to my user name -- sid by doing the followingsudo chown -R sid:sid /media/windowsHere are my questions1) Now it allows me to access the folders but all the files like pdf or photos have a cross on right top corner and it says access denied. Is this because of ntfs since with fat32 I didn't have this problem.
2) Also I have a /data (ext4) partiton which is a common partition for datafiles between Ubuntu and Debian. It has the permission -- drwxr_xr_x . I am trying to write to this partition and save files but it doesnot allow me to do it. do I have to make chmod 777 to do that?3) How do I make sure that both windows and /data partition are writable right from the beginning at the boot time.
i have VPS server and i installed Xserver on it and all ok i created new user for my client but i need to limit his access to the following
he can download and upload to his home file " browser by Firefox" he can't install or use any application "just the one i installed it" he can't see the file system or browser it !! if i can give him specific space on harddisk would be better he can extract and compress files he can't edit the settings ....
i have another sensitive folder and setting i don't want him to see it so how to limit his access?
I'm new to debian ,I was trying to mount my NTFS partition but I did that only with read permissions I couldn't install ntfs-config(allthough I have ntfs-3g installed).So I want to figure out how to mount my partitions with read/write permissions automatically as the systeme starts ?
I'm trying to determine how to limit a specific user so that they are confined within their home. I'm also trying to figure out how to prevent a specific user from walking up to the computer and allowing them to log in, but still allow SSH. Basically I'm trying to provide an account with very limited access to the machine.
I'm thinking about some ways to limit access to my web-server. It runs Nginx and php in FCGI. The server contains a large amount of information. The data is freely available and no authentication is required but other companies might like to mirror it and use on their own servers.
The requests could be limited on different levels: IP, TCP, HTTP (by nginx) or by the php application. I found some solutions (like Nginx's limit_req_zone directive), but they do not solve the second part of the problem: there's no way to define a whitelist of clients who are allowed to use the data.
I thought about an intellectual firewall that would limit the requests on IP basis, but I'm yet to find such device. Another way was to hack some scripts that would parse the log file every minute and modify the iptables to ban suspicious IPs. It would take days and I doubt this system will survive, say, 1000 requests per second.
Perhaps, some HTTP proxy, like Squid, could do this?
I would like to be able to monitor which programs are allowed to access the internet, but a search for programs to do this has turned up nothing. Preferably, I would like a notification to come up every time an application uses the internet. Is there any (n00b friendly) software available to do that?
This might sound really stupid, so you'll all have to excuse my lacking knowledge. I read that USB attacks get more and more common, like putting in an USB stick with a malicious autorun script on it, and it's game over. Can AppArmor protect devices and limit their access to the file system?
I'm trying to limit access to port 8443 on our server to 2 specific IP addresses. For some reason, access is still being allowed even though I drop all packets that aren't from the named IP addresses. The default policy is ACCEPT on the INPUT chain and this is how we want to keep it for various reasons I wont get into here. Here's the output from iptables -vnL
Note the actual IP we are using is masked here with 220.127.116.11. Until I can get everything working properly, we're only allowing access from 1 IP instead of 2. We can add the other one once it all works right. I haven't worked with iptables very much. So I'm quite confused about why packets matching the DROP criteria are still being allowed.

Winxp in 1st primary.I did a fresh install of lenny on 1st secondary.
info about lenny setup: 1.Partition list:/boot,/,/home,swap 2.Every partition is XFS except swap.
At the end of installion,lenny installed grub on (hd0) that is 1st primary.
Everything seems OK.Lenny runs OK.
But when I switch back to windows xp,the diskmgmt can not detect hdd's info and the system meets a problem of shutting down.
After many times of trying. I solved the problem by the following way. 1.Boot with windows xp's install CD and use fixmbr on (hd0). 2.Boot with lenny's install DVD , do a grub>root (1,0)>setup (hd1) After that,edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) and also (hd1,0) to (hd0,0). 3.Reboot and Press F8 for a boot menu then I can select which disk to boot. windows boot from 1st primary's mbr,lenny boot from lenny's grub.
The problem is caused by a bug between GRUB and windows' mbr and maybe more about GRUB and XFS.
The bold number of 6.4 is the % of sever memory this process is using. 6.4 % of 512 MB of memory is about 32 MB of memory, so it appears that this isn't being limited by php.ini. Am I correct? This leads to the next question: Is there some way to limit the amount of memory a single suphp process can use? (Basically, something like the setting in php.ini which limits suphp processes in the same way.)
I have dual-boot XP/Karmic.I have an external HDD for backup. One partition is NTFS for the XP stuff. The second partition is ext4.I was practicing with the SystemRestoreCD, which provides a Linux root console.I can create and delete directories on the ext4 partition, but not on the NTFS partition. The error message says "read-only file system".I tried to use chmod and chown to change permissions and owner.I assumed that as root, I could do anything.How can I access the NTFS partition, and do anything that I need to do?All my current XP stuff on the HDD was backed up from within XP, using standard software (Cobian Backup), and normal user privileges. But I want to practice for when my XP OS is damaged.
I have a partition on my hard drive that i use for documents. In 9.10 i would just click on places, and then on the partition name. It would ask for my password and i would be able to access the files. I just upgraded to 10.04 and first off i do not see the partition at all. I navigated to filesystem>media and found my partition but i has a gray X on it. I did gksu nautilus and when i access the folder, there is nothing inside.

I have some problems accessing NTFS USB devices from Dolphin. If I mount by hand the device, mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/disk I can access to the disk from Dolphin. mount command reports: /dev/sdc1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=512)When the same disk is mounted through Dolphin (by clickin on the disk icon), I cannot see any content. mount command reports: /dev/sdc1 on /media/FLS-U2-300 type fuseblk suid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=512,default_permissions)root@obelix:~# As you can see, mount command reports different configurations. I suspect the extra parameters used by Dolphine causing problems but I don't know how to configure KDE to change the mount options. This problem is new to Slackware 13.1. My previous 13.0 configuration had not that problem
