General :: Use Cdrom Of Another Computer In The Network From Server PC?
Jan 7, 2010
I am sitting in front of a suse server computer and i have to install php-mysql package in this server.When i am doing that through yast it is asking for the cd of suse.I have that cd but i cannot connect the cdrom to that server.The cdrom is connected to another PC which i can also access.Is there anyway to install that package using the cdrom connected to other PC.
First, (for samba) how do I determine whether my computer "gets IP address information from a dhcp server on the network," and whether "the dhcp server provides info about WINS servers ("NetBIOS name servers") present on the network," and consequently whether a change to my smb.conf file, "so that DHCP-provided WINS settings will automatically be read from /etc/samba/dhcp.conf," and whether the dhcp3-client package must be installed?
I have been trying plop floppy to boot a bootable cdrom from a mobile USB cdrom reader, but the usb cdrom are not recognized.I was thinking that with grub or grub2 or syslinux that would be possible, no ?
I would like some opinions on creating a two computer network so I can study a server in action. I would prefer that it was on a level below accessing the internet and then being routed back at this point. Installing a router is fine.
Asterisk and its cousin technologies intrigue as well as confuse me. I'm wondering: Is it possible to set up an Asterisk (or other) server on a home computer with no special hardware and use it to route calls between mobile devices in remote locations? I'm hoping this could work similarly to Skype Mobile, Google Voice, etc., except on a WAY smaller scale. This is just something I'd use personally for calls to family and friends--nothing huge.
Since my computer is just a regular laptop with no 3G connectivity, I don't expect to use 3G for calls. I just think it would be cool, for instance, to go to a caf� with WiFi and use a SIP/VoIP client on my Android phone to call up a friend who also has a phone or PC with a SIP/VoIP client on it. I realize I could do the same thing far more easily with an account at Skype or some other provider. My interest in attempting this project is more for the learning experience than practical use.
If indeed this is possible to do with the hardware I already own, any tips for starting out? My computer is a MacBook Pro 5,5 (dual-booting Sabayon Linux and Mac OS X). I know I could install Asterisk from within Sabayon, install a specialized telephony distro to a new partition, or run a virtual Asterisk machine--but I'm not sure which option, if any, would be most appropriate here. I'm also not sure if Asterisk would accomplish what I want, or if I should look at other software.
How to create a user account on a Linux desktop machine with restrictions on connecting to the LAN, WAN, PCMCIA ports, Firewire, CDROM and generally any user controllable output options?
I have the task to set up a machine for users working with sensitive data that should not be leaving the machine where it is processed. This means disabling access to the ethernet device, lan, all other ports as mentioned earlier, and any other way of leaking the data.
In Mac OSX this was achieved using "Parental controls" from the System preferences; this even allows a selection of the applications that can be used. Under XP, Device Manager offers the option to click various devices and "Disable" them, which worked so far just fine. Some will point out that the latter mentioned OS may be easy to circumvent the security of in other ways, but that has been mitigated with other measures and it's not the point anyway. For the operator users in question, the aforementioned measure proved successful and worked.Using OSX and XP to do this was a 10-15 minutes job with testing included.
So far all guides and tutorials pointed to useradd, groups an facl, but in actual practical terms did not help at all, in fact most of the research did not render any practical results so far. I surely don't expect to point and click, and would gladly run a set of commands from CLI. If I had them. I would really would like to achieve the same restricted user account configuration in a concise, comprehensive and practical manner under Linux too. Preferably tested on humans before, and known to be workign, of course. The machines that need to be set up are two laptops running Ubuntu. So how can this be accomplished in Linux?
I'm trying to setup an Apache server on my computer which will allow browsing of files in a specific directory and subdirectories, without needing any sort of authentication.
I've got the Apache2 server up and running through yast, and everything works fine as long as I try to point it to the /www/htdocs folder. However, I want to point it at another folder, which is on another partition. This partition is formatted as NTFS, if that matters at all (here's some background on some permissions issues I had with the NTFS partitions recently).
When I change the "Directory" setting in the Yast http server configuration utility to the directory on the NTFS partition I wish to use, attempting to access the server results in the following error:
Code: Access Forbidden: You don't have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected. If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

My wifes networked computer connected to the network just fine when it was Win XP. Now that Ive converted it to 10.04 (completely) it can see the network, but it just wont connect to it. I had no problem converting my computer to Ubuntu and it sees the network and accesses it great. Files, folders and hard drives are all shared. So, one computer connects great, the other does not.**I dont know what to do at this point.Here is the layout:My Comp (10.04) ---------......Main Network Comp (XP)Wife Comp (10.04) -------/The main network computer is XP as it has software on it we need that does not work in Wine. The main computer will have to stay XP. I cannot get my wifes computer to connect to the main system, although mine connects just fine. I dont know what the problem is. Her computer sees the network, but when trying to connect, it times out and says unable to connect.
I have a linux machine on my university network where I usually log in via ssh from home. I have know the ip, so this is what I use to log in, but it would convenient to know if my computer have a hostname on the local network (it's easier than remembering the ip).I set up a hostname when I installed linux on my pc, but it's not the name associated with that ip on the network. Is there a way to find out if there's a name associated with that ip?
I have a computer on my network being extremely sluggish and I cannot find the reason why. I can ping and the response time is decent enough at 0.137ms up until something that requires network access is run(cvs, SSH, ls on mounted drives). At that point the ping jumps up to 6000ms, sometimes up to 12000ms.
I have looked through /var/log/messages and found nothing suspicious and I have not seen any problems on other networked computers when accessing the shares. Disk usage on this computer is fine(470GB free) and memory is fine as well(up to 10GB free). The computer is on CentOS 5.3.
When i first install ubuntu 10.10 the other day my entire windows shared network was visible and accessible through places/network ect.i only had an issue creating a link.Now , for some reason i can no longer see the other windows comp or any of its folders but i can see my sons laptop ( running vista) . obviously i still have access to the network and i have checked the sharing settings on the windows machine.
i want to find ip address of other computer which are connected in LAN..suppose ther are 5 compter in LAN and i want to find ip of all remaining 4 computer using my computer only in command or any other way is ther....
I'm running ubuntu 9.1 and want to access another computer on my home network. That particular computer is running XP pro. I set up the user account on the windows machine with admin rights, did the remote user yada yada yada...
I have installed XP on linux xen, when I mount a dvd or cdrom, it would mount on linux not windows! What should I do to mount it on windows? (I installed xp in virtual machine via an image file, so, whenever windows is poped on, the windows xp cd-rom is mounted with that image file), is there any way to mount it from hard?
I am currently trying to figure out what's the best way to backup several PCs (about 5 computers each with Windows 7) from my family.
As I want the same solution for all Computer - I set up my old computer (Windows 7) and added some hard drives and there should now be enough space to backup the data of everyone from my family via the network. (Lets call this computer "Server")
But now I am wondering whats the best way to do this? What I do not want:
I do not want to start the Server each time manually when a computer tries to backup. (I thought about using WakeOnLan.. but I do not know if this is a good idea) I do not want the Server to run permanently I do not want to make the backups manually they should backup about every week automatically.
So which Software on the Computers / or the "Server" would you recommend?
Or would you eve recommend me to use Linux on the Server? If so, which Software would you use then?
I am trying to share a couple of resources from my fedora 12 box to a windows vista, using samba. It seems absolutely fine to share any folder but as soon as I am trying to share a folder which is used as a mount point windows cannot access this folder. I get the following message from windows:"the network cannot be found". This must be due to some permission, but I cannot find which one.
Note that windows can access the folder but as soon as the device is mounted I v#can see the folder in windows but cannot access it. Here is a copy of the smb.config file:
I have a desktop machine, with a DVD drive in it, mounted at /media/cdrom0I am trying to share this across a wireless network with two laptops, neither of them with CD drives in them. While I can see the cdrom drive across the network, whenever I try to open a file on it (typically something in VIDEO_TS), it doesn't allow me to access it. The error is "Error reading from file: Input/output error". If I try to open the DVD in the drive using movie player, I get the error "An error occurred. Could not read from resource."A DVD in the drive on the server works fine - it plays in movie player and in VLC. Thus far I have tried various different settings in /etc/exports on the server and /etc/fstab on the laptops. I have tried the fixes mentioned in this thread: ... namely, editing the 70-persistent-cd rules file (on the server and the client), and removing all links to block objects in /dev (on the server and the client), and even tried editing the /boot/grub/menu.lst on the server and the client, adding "all_generic_ide=1" in under # defoptions, and then running "sudo update-grub", as per the bug listed here:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/228624The funny thing is that it doesn't always happen. It happens about 95% of the time, but occasionally, just occasionally, it works as it should and I can play a DVD across the network (which is what I am trying to do!) BUT I don't know what changes to make it work or fail - when it works I reboot to see if it will work reliably, and it then fails again. I would really appreciate any help anyone can offer in getting this one working. The machines are all on a private network, and all running 9.10 Karmic. The details of the individual machines are thus: Server (desktop): 9.10, kernel 2.6.31-17-generic, /etc/exports like this:
Code: # Allow the DVD Drive to be exported /media/cdrom0 192.168.10.1/24(rw,async,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check)
But i've never done it before so i'm a little nervous.As far as i can tell i'll need to do port forwarding to make sure that my computer can be found through the wifi.There's a few computers using the local network so i'm a little worried about security. I have no clue what i'm doing at this point it looks like something called OpenSSH needs to be installed.
But how do i keep people from logging on as root? and how can i make sure they don't try a bruteforce attack? Is there a good tutorial out there somewhere? I hear there's programs that can stop people from attempting to log on more then a few times every minutes.nyway, i found a bunch of wikipedia articles and some blog things where people rant and rave about it, but i haven't found any tutorials that a dummy like me can follow
I created 2 virtual machines with VMware Workstation 7. They have identical hardwares. One guest is CentOS 5.6, another is Mandriva 2011. When I try to mount the cdrom in guest OS, in CentOS, I should execute
mount /dev/hdc /path/to/mount
in Mandriva, I should execute
mount /dev/sr0 /path/to/mount
I also remebered in some other Linux variant, I had to use
mount /dev/cdrom /path/to/mount
What's the difference between hdc, sr0 or cdrom? Is there a consistent way to mount cdrom in all Linux variants?
I'm using a software that needs to read data from a cdrom. The instructions say to mount the cdrom (mount /mnt/cdrom). I understand that I need to mount the cdrom to /mnt/cdrom. I created a folder "cdrom" under "mnt". Then I tried to mount the cdrom by typing:
sudo mount /media/ /mnt/cdrom/ This didn't work. Under "media" I have another folder with the actual cd content so I tried to mount it too, but again with no success. I keep getting an error that "media is not a block device". What I am doing wrong?
