Ubuntu :: Installing Server On A Computer Not Connected To The Internet?
Feb 5, 2011
Turning an old computer of mine into a server and I don't have an ethernet with me to connect it to the router so I was just wondering if I can install Ubuntu Server without being connected to the internet.
I have an old computer that I want to turn in to a backup server. I was planning on using a 1 TB drive connected by a SATA card since the motherboard only has PATA. However when looking everything I've found makes it sound like I need to install the card for it to work. I want to know if I can install Debian to the hard drive through the SATA card or not?
I live in northern Canada. I am not in a high speed internet zone but use an alternative method which I pay lots of money to get high speed. However I am restricted to 5 GB of traffic per month.
Now I have to computers running Ubuntu. So for example, if I want to install TuxPaint on my first PC then I would go to the software center and it would download then install the software for me. Now if I wanted to install the same program on my second computer it would download it again. The problem is that this would download twice as much from the internet. Is there any way that I can save internet bandwidth by using the download files from my first computer to install the program on my second computer? Similarly, can I only download updates once but install them on both computers?
I'm using a linux server where nat server is running. Local user are connected from this server. So is there in tool that i can check that local user getting internet? or how can i check that a user connected from linux server using internet or where he visited?
I have a laptop with internet and ubuntu, and a desktop without internet, and I need to install some pakages on it. I did my research and generated a script to download them from synaptic, but when I double click it, it opens it gedit, when it is supposed to download the packages. What am I doing wrong? I was using this article [URL]
I want to set a up a network of inter connected pcs, for example on pc A linux is installed.now pcs B, C , D, etc should connect to A and do there work, for example A want to do C/C++, development, whereas B wants to do some PERL development or whatever, this is just an example, 2 different pc users might do same work also, and the connecting pcs may have Windows or linux or bsd.OSes now what h/w or s/w is required and what steps are required to set up this network, main pc would be connected to internet and also connected pcs might want to use internet also..have installed opensuse edulife , and use this as PC A for testing.. and I use bridged dsl Broadband connection to connect to internet , by the username and password provided by the ISP, in windows its easy to setup this connection, however not able to do on linux,
I just reinstalled debian on my computer, I've had it working for a long time, only difference is I used to have Cable Internet and now I use DSL. Anywho, I reinstalled debian from the kde CD on the debian website, it auto-configured my network out of the box. My network is connected to the computer, pinging google works perfectly, and ifconfig shows that eth0 is working correctly without any errors. However on both Konqueror and Iceweasel, every time I try to connect to a website, it tells me the server cannot be found. Basically it acts like I don't have internet. Using the terminal works though, I have installed KDE-FULL from the terminal and wicd, so I know I do have internet. I don't know what it could be, like I said, I installed from the cd and this happened. Maybe there's a bug on the KDE debian cd
venturing into unfamiliar territory so I'm hoping someone can help me and make things a little more understandable for me. I have setup Postfix on a standalone server connected directly to the internet. I have got inbound and outbound email working for the most part, but I am worried about security.My fear is that if I leave port 25 open to the outside world spammers will find this and start relaying mail through it and eventually blacklisting the IP attached to this box.
For now, I am hosting mail for a single domain and single user (me) with a few aliases. I plan on expanding to IMAP and SMTP access from the outside at some point, but for now I've been using Mutt in a shell and it's fine for my needs for now.
Here are my current Postfix settings: alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
I seem to have is trying to get the internet to work. I can go to ..... ect but when I try to run playonlinux it says you do not seem to be connected to the internet, please post if you have anything useful, as I said I am very new to linux so be as detailed as possible.
I want to settup a proxy server who just redirect the internet connection to my second computer. I try Squid Proxy but its too complicated for me. Can you sugest me another more simple program to do what i want?
I have configured a squid proxy server with @2 eth in different network subnet and with site blocking and extn file download blocking. One eth0 for office wired network and another eth1 is for office wireless network for laptop use for guest and visitors.
The problem is [URL] is an Indian government website, which is not working though this proxy server and the Internet Explorer is getting very slow and freezing the computer. In alternate I have configured a another test server with squid proxy with out any security and test the same. the problem is still with the all the computer in the network. The above website is perfectly working with Gateway configuration in TCP/IP properties in Network Configuration in MS Windows XP computers but through squid proxy its not working.
I am currently developing an small program in Python and at a certain point, I need to do some "stuff" depending on the monitors that are connected to the computer. I have an intel vga card with two outputs. I want to do something if one of the screens connected to the output is a "Dell", another something if one of the monitors is a "Nec" and another something if both monitors are connected.
So the question is: Is there any way to get the vendor/model of the monitors currently connected to the computer? I did a little bit testing. I plugged both screens to my vga card (the Nec to the HDMI output and the Dell to the DVI output), and the gnome-display-properties tool properly detected the model, size, resolution... of both screens connected. I would like to know if I can use a command on bash (or a library in python) to get the same information.
The /var/log/Xorg.0.log also shows properly: (II) intel(0): EDID vendor "NEC", prod id 26345 (II) intel(0): I2C device "HDMIDDC_C:E-EDID segment register" registered at address 0x60. (II) intel(0): I2C device "HDMIDDC_C:ddc2" registered at address 0xA0. (II) intel(0): EDID vendor "DEL", prod id 41027
I could always parse that file, but it is not the best solution. I also tried the ddprobe command, but for some reason, it only detects one of the screens (the Dell, connected to a DVI cable). I am currently using Ubuntu 9.04 and Python2.4 (just in case it's relevant).
I'm trying to get my Ubuntu computer to connect my Windows 7 shares. I do have Samba installed and it can "see" my Windows 7 computer...however, I cannot connect to the machine. I think I've heard some issues with the way how Windows 7 deals with networking now and Samba doesn't work with Windows 7 now or something? If possible, I can always use an NFS server and client for my Windows 7 computer.
I can't modify/delete the files on my phones through my computer which is connected to my phone through a USB wire. I can view the files in there, but not edit them or make any modifications. During the time I used Ubuntu, it worked pretty well, any ideas why it doesn't work.I use Fedora 11 KDE in case you wanted to help me solve this problem. I also have a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic if this is going to help too.
I would like to run a script after I got a network connection. The reason is that I'm trying to install Dropbox on my Fedora 12 laptop, but it only works if I start it after I'm connected to the network. So, is it possible to automatically run a script after you've got the connection?
I've installed Ubuntu server edition 10.4 to one of my older computers and When I go to install something I get the error message Package could not be found. I'm assuming it's not connected to the internet. It doesn't Show up on my router. I'm trying to install Ubuntu-desktop using the code "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop.
i installed kde to my usb drive but i think the grub also went to it because im running windows 7 and now kde but would like to know how to uninstall it if i ever have to. and also i cannot boot my computer unless that specific usb is connected
I dug up an old pentium 3 computer to play with. I have it connected to my laptop with an ethernet cable. Now, how do I access the files, install new OS, etc, etc? If it helps any, I think it runs windows 2000 and I'm on opensuse 11.3.
I'm installing Lotus Domino on Linux Server. Did anyone know how to reverse proxy for HTTP and POP3/IMAP on linux ? I've problem when try to open webmail from internet. I can't access webmail and POP3 from internet. Seems because connection from internet can't directly to Domino through Firewall. If using apache seems no problem with the webmail, but POP3 still can't access.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 along with windows7.In Ubuntu, wired network worksWhen I connect to a wireless network, it connects but I am not able to connect to internet.It says, 'Wireless network connection 'blabla' active'
This is my second day with ubuntu on a dell mini 10v with broadcom wireless card. I hooked up to a wired connection and ubuntu installed the drivers for the broadcom card.When I put the cursor over the wireless icon on the desktop it shows the name of my wireless connection,active,and my ip address but when I open firefox I get a "server not found". I'm confused as what to put in the boxes for ssid,mode,bssid,mac address,and mtu under network connections. I've tried pretty much every conceivable method at my disposal,even went on my d-link router settings and nothing has worked.I do not have windows installed,using 10.4
I can connect to my router but no web pages will load etc... I can connect my phone to the router and USB tether it to my laptop and everything works fine. I can also connect to my neighbors router and everything works fine.
I have tried put my routers IP in /etc/resolve.conf but to no avail. I also tried putting 18.104.22.168.
Edit: Toshiba Sattelite A215 laptop (RS690 wireless card?) and a Linksys router.
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 as a dual boot along woth Win PX Pro x64 bit. I'm new to Linux and I need help. For the life of me I can't seem to get connected to the Internet. I have cable high speed with a router and 2 laptops on the network.
I just got a new power supply in my old desktop, and installed ubuntu on it. I've got three NICs in there (for a later project), and when I connect my cable modem to any one of the NICs, then little connection triangle-spinny-thing in the upper-right tries to connect. But it never gets all the way connected.
