Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Open Mounted Shares On NAS "Permission Denied"

I have an Acer EasyStore NAS which I can access fine in Nautilus, but a server which I have been trying to mount via command line refuses to even let me view the contents of the folder. The mount command appears to work, a password is requested when connecting to the shared folder.

sudo mount -t cifs --verbose -o user=jason //nas/media /mnt/nas
mount.cifs kernel mount options: unc=//nasmedia,ver=1,rw,user=jason,ip=,pas s=********

But I cannot even view the folder contents, as even a simple ls returns:

ls: cannot open directory /mnt/nas: Permission Denied

Even on my laptop which is able to access all the shared folders under Nautilus I am unable to mount shares from the command line.

Ubuntu :: PHP Not Working - Warning: Unknown: Failed To Open Stream: Permission Denied
I just isntalled LAMP using tasksel and have a problem. Whenever I try to access a page (aside from phpmyadmin, that works well), I get this error... Code: Warning: Unknown: failed to open stream: Permission denied in Unknown on line 0 Fatal error: Unknown: Failed opening required '/var/www/index.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in Unknown on line 0

I have restarted the computer, restarted apache, etc and still nothing. When I first installed, phpmyadmin was inaccessible, so I ran some command in terminal which apparently created a symlink between phpmyadmin in the user/share dir to the /var/www dir, and curious if this is the problem. I have no clue how to remove this symlink if this is the case, and have phpmyadmin working now due to install using sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin.

Slackware :: Error - Libusb Couldn't Open USB Device /dev/bus/usb/001/001: Permission Denied

this error spams about 100 times, then the scanner does indeed work. So I'm not completely broken, but the error messages are of concern, and it slows down the process of scanning for the time it takes to do the messages.

Error in console:

libusb couldn't open USB device /dev/bus/usb/001/001: Permission denied. libusb requires write access to USB device nodes.

my sript runs:

--device $MODEL
-x 5104 -y 6840

my groups:

uid=1000(fogie) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),7(lp),11(floppy),12(mail),15(man),17(audio),18(video),19(cdrom),20(games),21(sloca te),83(plugdev),84(power),86(netdev),93(scanner)

Even a simple:

scanimage -Lv

in console gives this on a separate --current pc as well.

CentOS 5 :: Su: Unable To Open Admin Password File: Permission Denied
when I try to su, with the right password I know it is because I have reset it with a sudo, it says su: incorrect password. Looking at /var/log/messages I see su: Unable to open admin password file: Permission denied. This must mean that the file has incorrect permissions and or owner/group. I am wondering if anyone knew where the file was located and the correct permissions/owner/group.

Networking :: Shares Still Be Mounted Via Cifs - Robust Connections?
what's the best way to accomplish this sort of a tunnel? File server is RedHat 9.0 box running samba. Have both Windows and Ubuntu machines accessing the server files, running OOo, mostly. This is a production setting. Total of about 7 or 8 machines accessing the server at any one time. Linux machines connect via cifs mounts. One of my people wants to work from his home. I will send an Ubuntu box home with him. Previously had an employee access from her home using pptp. We shut that connection down when she left our employ. pptpd is still on the server. So my questions:

1. What are my choices for making the most robust connections? pptp openssh gstm something else?

2. If we go ssh, can the shares still be mounted via cifs?

3. If we go ssh (I have read that pptp is not very secure), will file locks work properly so that if remote person via ssh opens a file, a local person connecting via cifs will not be able to open and edit the same file simultaneously?

4. Is there a way to limit the connection coming in to just one machine, such as by restricting connection to a specific mac address?

5. Are there any sites which give the pluses and minuses and the options for such a network? I have been googling around and have not yet found anything.

Ubuntu :: Network Shares Not Available \ When Use OpenOffice Writer To Open/save Files The Shares Disappear In The "Open/Places"?
I am giving 10.04RC a try instead of Windows 7, so far so good. I can connect to my network shares fine using "Connect to a Server" & bookmark with the file browser, however when I use OpenOffice writer Spreadsheet to open/save files the shares disappear in the"Open/Places". Is this a bug in Ubuntu or Open Office? Is there an update/fix?

Ubuntu :: Error: "Note: Cannot Open TUN/TAP Dev /dev/net/tun: Permission Denied (errno=13)"
I have a problem setting up a TUN interface for OpenVPN. Running OpenVPN gives me this error: "Note: Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/net/tun: Permission denied (errno=13)"

Which i tracked down to: "WARNING: Couldn't open directory /lib/modules/2.6.18-164.15.1.el5.028stab068.9: No such file or directory" (if i run /sbin/modproble tun). Does anyone know how to fix this?

Networking :: NFS Server - Permission Denied ?
I have a mount problem with a NFS server on Debian Lenny. No matter what I do, I cannot mount a directory from another Debian box on the same network.

The error the client gives:

The server reports:

Doing a:

NOTE: this default has changed since nfs-utils version 1.0.x

Comes up empty (and it should not, right?)

There is no firewall inbetween. No access restrictions via the tcpwrappers.

Networking :: NFS Share Permission Denied
I'm sure there is a very trivial solution to my problem but I just can't figure it out due to my lack of knowledge.I want to mount an nfs share share on client1. The share is on server1.The server1 /etc/exportfs has entry: /backup client1 rw,all_squash,no_subtree_ check) The client1 sudo mount works just fine: sudo mount server1:/backup /backup..Can anyone let me know how to mount the nfs whare with options to read/write permissions for a regular user. And then put that mount into /etc/fstab? Should I mount first and then change the ownership of that folder?
