Debian Configuration :: Invalid User Using SSH

Nov 26, 2015

I just installed Debian Jessie (3.16.0-4-amd64) on a desktop box I intend to use as a server in our home office. During installation I included the web server and SSH server options. I have a user account, 'mitchell' set up in addition to root. Everything is working great except that I am unable to log in via SSH from other machines, such as a Windows desktop also on the office LAN (using PuTTY). From the PuTTY terminal it looks like the user name is accepted because the password is requested, but after entering the password it says "Access denied".

Back on the Debian box in I see:

Code: Select allNov 26 14:12:02 DebianDevP6TSE sshd[2278]: Invalid user mitchell from 192.168.1.96
Nov 26 14:12:02 DebianDevP6TSE sshd[2278]: input_userauth_request: invalid user mitchell [preauth]
Nov 26 14:12:07 DebianDevP6TSE sshd[2278]: pam_unix(sshd:auth): check pass; user unknown
Nov 26 14:12:07 DebianDevP6TSE sshd[2278]: pam_unix(sshd:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=ssh ruser= rhost=rmbiserv.attlocal.net
Nov 26 14:12:10 DebianDevP6TSE sshd[2278]: Failed password for invalid user mitchell from 192.168.1.96 port 60010 ssh2

So I am guessing I need to set up either the SSHD server, or maybe something in PAM, to authorized users for SSH access?

As a note, "mitchell" is the user name I use to log on to Debian, and I am entering the same user name and password when trying to log in via SSH.

If I try to log in via SSH as "root" I get the following in the log:

Code: Select allNov 26 14:17:01 DebianDevP6TSE CRON[2329]: pam_unix(cron:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0)

General :: Parsing Err Or Invalid $END - Correct User Use Of Invalid Characters

Feb 10, 2011

Trying simply to insert into table. Have succeeded in doing this but now want to correct user use of invalid characters. If I'm understanding correctly, Real-escape-string seems to correct these, so I've been trying to figure out how to use it. A short, test code version gives me a syntax error at INSERT VALUES, which--because it still has the single quotes in the text--tells me the real-escape-string didn't work. The code below gives me a parseing error with invalid $END at </body>.

Insert Error: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ' VALUES (UTC_TIMESTAMP,'What's happen' bra?')' at line 1 Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/powere15/public_html/DB/exercises_insert_record.php on line 94

Debian Configuration :: Raspbian On Raspberry Pi Always Get A Invalid IP Address

Jan 7, 2016

I got the Raspberry pi 2 Model B. I flashed my sdcard with raspberian Jessie kernel 4.1 (latest).Also tried wheezy and NOOBS, same behavior.With a ethernet cable (known working), I tried connecting my Pi to my home router, and I got a invalid ip address 169.254.xxx.xxx, and therefore no linkup. I got the same results by connecting my Pi directly to my modem (wired).

I know that /etc/dhcpd.conf is the new /etc/network/interfaces for network configurations.So I tried the debug option, and I noticed that the router doesn't seems to response to the DISCOVER command from the Pi (dhcp v4 protocol).Here's a dump of by /var/log/syslog | grep dhcp

Code: Select allDec 28 12:00:02 raspberrypi systemd[1]: Starting dhcpcd on all interfaces...
Dec 28 12:00:02 raspberrypi dhcpcd[349]: version 6.7.1 starting

Dec 28 12:00:02 raspberrypi dhcpcd[349]: eth0: disabling kernel IPv6 RA support

ANd if i use raspbian flesh out of installation, I get this when i run

dhcpcd -k
dhcpcd eth0
eth0: probing for an IPv4ALL address
eth0: using IPv4ALL address 169.154.202.224

Seems like my home router TP-link (default setup) doesn't send a response to the dhcp request.

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Only For Main User?

Mar 24, 2010

I don't exactly know what happened but for some reason only the main user has access now to the networkmanager and is able to connect to internet. If I switch to another user, the networkmanager reports no connectivity and the PCMCIA card dies. Does anyone know what to do? It seems like an access feature, related to permissions or something.

I checked but the user is added to the netdev group...

Debian Configuration :: FTP Users Do Not Have Access Via SSH, Only User ID?

Oct 23, 2010

It looks like my web/ftp server has been hacked but I'm not sure how. I logged in tonight and found I had new mail. I read it and found some e-mails that had failed to send because I don't have mail setup (luckily). The e-mails were trying to send my user name and password to the e-mail address lostsoul2k@ymail.comI've no idea where to start, I use SSH, FTP now and then and it hosts a Wordpress site. The FTP users do not have access via SSH, only my user ID. However, the e-mails also contained another user ID that only has FTP access to the server.I've looked through the logs for rkhunter but it doesn't look like it found anything.

Debian Configuration :: User Access To A USB Stick?

Oct 30, 2010

This is a perennial problem with Linux. I am just not comfortable moving a lot of casual files around as root. How can I have user access to a USB stick? I've done my Google searches and tried several methods, some of which work temporarily but not permanently. At the moment, I have this line in my /etc/fstab: /dev/sdd† †/media/usb_flash† ntfs† noauto,users,rw,umask=0 0 0
As with other methods, this worked last week but not now.

All I want to do is insert a USB stick, transfer some files and remove the stick. I want to do this as a user. This should be simple. What is the trick?

Debian Configuration :: User Login And Run Network-manager?

Feb 16, 2016

After fossicking around I can not find anything around that I can invoke in a terminal to configure settings in network-manager. The applet(?) on the task bar doesn't ask for a login, so options are grey/grayed out. The "program" in the applications menu is similarly grey/grayed out.

If it was a once off, then I suspect that it would be simple as login as root to start X, but I have a series of config files to edited each time of their initial use. also, there is the ongoing problem of vpn target switching.

woops; wheezy with xfce4 and everything is uptodate.

Debian Configuration :: Preventing Multiple Instances Of User?

Sep 6, 2010

Currently, a user is able to log into multiple terminals simultaneously, creating a copy of their roaming profile on each, and potentially causing problems if the instances are logged out in the wrong order. Is there any way to prevent this, so that if a user has logged in on a machine and not logged out (and perhaps some timeout has not yet expired) then their login attempts on another machine will be rejected.

Debian Configuration :: NIS User Not Allowed Because Shell Does Not Exist

May 6, 2011

I have two machines running SQUEEZE, both installed and configured within the same week (not simultaneously). Both get the users info from a NIS server. In one of the machines (named "corona"), users cannot login, neither locally nor by ssh, in the other one ("xxlager") there is no problem. Both mount the users home directories by NFS. I have not found much useful info in the web. /etc/passwd, /etc/group/, /etc/shadow, are equally configured. The only difference I have found is when I use getent. Using "getent passwd isaenz" on xxlager yields:

isaenz:x:1001:1001:User Name,,,:/home/isaenz:/bin/tcsh
but on corona the result is
isaenz:x:1001:1001:User Name,,,:/home/isaenz:
so the shell info is empty.
Checking /var/log/auth.log I see a message saying:
"User isaenz not allowed because shell does not exist"

But "ypmatch isaenz passwd" returns complete information for isaenz, both on xxlager and corona.

Debian Configuration :: User Cannot Shutdown While Root Is Logged In

Jun 29, 2011

on my netbook I've tried to make possible for my user to shutdown without needing a password. battery could run low when I'm not in front of it. Editing sudoers has allowed my user to shutdown the system, but Gnome still prompts me for the root password whenever root is logged in too. That's usually the case, because to avoid entering the root password multiple times whenever I need elevated privileges and not wanting to cache the root password, I keep a Root Terminal always open.

Debian Configuration :: When User Is Admin Root Password Is Still Needed

May 7, 2015

I'm using Debian Jessie Cinnamon right now. I've got 1 user account on my machine--fred--as well as root, of course. "fred" is an administrator, and many times that is enough for root priviledges, for example, I can install packages via apt or dpkg. However, I cannot access "Users and Groups", or install packages via GDebi, with my password. For that, I have to have the root password.

I know that it is possible to let the admin account handle everything and not even need root--for example, Mint and (I believe) Ubuntu do it this way. I don't know how, though.

Code: Select allgroups fred
fred : fred cdrom floppy sudo audio dip video plugdev netdev lpadmin scanner bluetooth

I did disable the root account by Code: Select allsudo passwd -l root to see if it would make any change. Nothing different happened except that I now can't use GDebi or access "Users and Groups" since the root account and therefore password is inactivated. Not a big deal to get it back, though.

Debian Configuration :: Restrict FTP Access To User's Home Directory Only

2 of us have been googling all morning trying to find out how we can restrict ftp logins to their own home directories only but nothing we've found so far has worked. We've tweaked sshd_config so that they default to their home directory but they are able to navigate up/across/down to everything. This is a "straight-out-of-the-box" debian 5.0.5 Netinst. Just a basic system with Apache/MySql/PHP/SSH and no desktop.

Debian Configuration :: Change Homedir In Active Directory User?

Feb 2, 2011

I followed these steps to add a client to my active directory domain, everything is working as expected except that when a username has whitespace it creates a directory in /home with whitespace and gconf fail to access his config dir in the user's home. KDE also fails to start but I don't know what's failing yet. I found that the easiest way to fix these issues is to replace whitespaces by underline in homepaths so I changed the pam_mkhomedir source to replace the whitespaces and save it using the usermod command. It should work but is not... the reason is that I can't change the user data using the usermod because domain users are not in /etc/passwd.
