Red Hat :: View/Open Files On Server From Windows Clients?
Apr 1, 2011
in my office we are using redhat server and 20 windows client machine. some times while viewing the server stored files or not able to view.yesterday i saw a problem all the files are showing but not able to open a single fine after restarting the computer iam able to open the file.
i want to configure an Open LDAP server in Ubuntu....and also want it to connect to its clients, i have two machines for testing,one for client & one for server, i followed the tutorials on ubuntu documentation,but did not succeed in making either the client or the server,
I have a crippled file system after a disk failure and attempt at repairing. Currently the Web Server is running, however I cannot open the filesystem to explore files and view. I am going to do a fresh install this weekend and upgrade system. I have two questions I hope this forum will help with. (Installing new disk and entire server)
1). Can someone tell me how I could copy the http.config file so that I can view my settings from terminal (This took me forever to get right for my environment to get shtml and cgi files to run correctly and I don't wish to lose). I am running Fedora 8, I'm also not sure of the location. (I'm fairly new to linux and not great with the terminal, however that is the only access working.) It would be great if someone added the terminal commands. If I can copy them I could email to my email address.
2). In the past when I have copied web files (web sites) over to the www directory the permission would be incorrect. Is it possible to write some of the web sites to CD (Disk burner is working) and then copy to the new system with permissions correct? Would you give a little how to all web sites are in the www directy. I think that is etc/www/"webdomain name" One thing I might add is all drives will fail it is just when...
Here I am editing /etc/samba/smb.conf and trying to remember what I should chmod the directory and the files to, then I think to myself there's probably an easier way. That way should be clear to the user.
There's dropbox and Ubuntu one but these are something slightly different, these sorts of things involving a cloud service or something needing to download to Windows clients, which is not what we want if we don't have an internet connection. So, is there a better way? Something to aide making smb.conf and permissions perhaps?
I have tftp-server running on Centos 5. Clients which are on the same subnet as the server are able to get and put without problems. I have a client that is across the internet that is having trouble getting files from my tftp server. A tcpdump reveals that the client is requesting the same file over and over again. In /var/log/messages, I am see the following error repeated over and over until the client finally gives up.
localhost in.tftpd: tftpd: read: No route to host
I was looking for a plugin to open pdf files in a new tab, acroread does but doesent remember the last view of the last file opened. So, is there a way to open pdf files through evince or okular within FF?
I work for a church, with office staff of about 10 people.
We want to set-up a server to store all the office information, (which is now scattered all over the place).
The idea is to give individuals a partition on the server(password protected). There is database software that needs to be accessed by 5 people( it runs on MS Access). Most of the document are MS Word. Of course you can tell me of a better way to do this than my idea.
how to set-up this network. I have to submit my info to church leadership. it will save us buy Window Server and 10 CAL (that ZAR 10k).
I am trying to view my Wiindows files in the file browser in KDE, but it tells me to install a piece of software (I am able to view them using the terminal). Does anyone know how this packages is called?
I can't download files from my server that I have. code...
it have worked before when the server used port 21 but now when they changed it to 4700 it doesn't work. I have emailed them and they get it to work with FLASHFXP but that is a freeware and it is for windows.
in filezilla I get "Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing"
Where 'xxx' is a date/time string down to the second.
Each subdir entry contains a number of files, depending on load at the time.
What we see happening is that a subdir will appear empty from a client (ls -la shows . and .. ) but an rmdir will fail with a 'directory not empty' error. From all 7 clients (mix of Centos 4 and 5). However on the server the files are visible. If we 'touch' the files the clients will then pick them up and process them.
It doesn't appear that waiting any amount of time will make the files visible (we've waited 8 hours while testing).
We've tried different mount options, NFS4, etc. Nothing got rid of the issue. Changing one server to use CIFS however solved it. So it appears to be some bug in NFS.
The problem appears to be intermittent and random, we can go hours without seeing it, or minutes. I'd say it affects fare less then 1% of the files written.
I have a fileserver running openSUSE 11.2 and samba services for file access from MS Windows based workstations. My question relates to changing default permissions on files and directories created from the windows clients.
Following are extracts of the /etc/samba/smb.conf file :
Even with the above entries, sometimes there are files and directories created by the windows clients having permission
I have a network consisting mostly of Windows Vista and 7 clients and an Ubuntu server. The server provides both the DHCP and NTP services through dhcp3-server and openntpd. In my dhcpd.conf, the subnet is declared as follows:
The clients don't seem to be using the NTP server though. When I capture the network traffic with Wireshark during the DHCP process, I also see no mention of the NTP option in the DHCP offer message. I am not quite sure if the clients would have to specifically request that option to receive it or if I have to make another configuration to offer the option.
I have setup openldap and samba for authenticating Windows and Linux clients on my server. They are working fine. Windows users are getting authenticated through server as Primary Domain Controller and Linux clients directly from Openldap directory. But I have little problem that is I want to mount home folders created on server to be available on clients so clients get a centralized storage with some quota on both Linux and Windows clients. Can you help me please how can I do that.
Im a linux newbie and I'm some sort of creating an Internal webserver or Intranet for short locally. My local webserver ip address is 192.168.0.1 and when im trying to view this on my xp clients i will type it in the url 192.168.0.1. What im trying to do is view my webserver instead of typing ipaddress I'll type hmij.edu.ph for example and trying to resolve it locally through local dns resolution.. so every time i type for example. my webserver name hmij.edu.ph i want it to redirect it to my local webserver w/out going to the internet first.. I already setup dnsmasq for dhcp and dnsclient resolution. is there any better way on how i can achieved this??im a little bit of confused on how to make this work. tnx in advance!
I would like to install Linux based AntiVirus Server with Windows Clients. As per the existing setup, all Windows machines are using "demo" or "evaluation" copy of antivirus & all antivirus softwares are not same on all windows computers.
Someone is using Trend-Micro ,other is using Avast. Due to above listed problem,i want to implement Linux Based Free AntiVirus Server,which will be connected directly on the internet. The Linux AntiVirus server will updated it's database from Internet automatically.
Inside the Linux Server,all Windows PC's are connected in a same Local Area Connection. All windows XP computers will fetch the updated data from the Anti Virus Server. Also,i am searching MAIL RESPONDER OR POP UP Windows,when any virus found on any client machine. My company needs Cost Effective solution & Linux is the best solution for this.
I want to replace Windows AD with SAMBA I want to know what policies restrictions I can get in SAMBA as compared to windows AD - whether it is possible to restrict clients not to change IP, access cdrom or control panel.

I'm trying to give some windows users a permanent connection to a samba share behind a firewall over the public Internet. I know I can give them access with something like winscp (which they have done) but really I'd like to do it with a VPN so it seems seamless to the user. However I have no idea how to set up the server to support this and am finding the documentation a bit confusing. The samba share is on a Debian box and the firwewall is a Linksys WRT54GL.
I have a linux server in a remote location. I have access to it only via putty. How do I install GUI on the linux server and view the GUI on my windows laptop?I installed KDE and when I type startx I get errors.
I'm having a problem with my hard drive. Windows can't even open it. I run DSL linux and successfully moynted the drive so I can view my file structure. I thought I just connect my other windows HD, mount it and then just copy all the folders I need. Unfortunatelly I'm getting cp: cannot create directory blabla - read-only file system. Is there a way at all to copy NTFS files in Linux?
