Ubuntu :: Read/write Access To Windows Folders?

May 15, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 using Wubi on an ACER Aspire 5000 XP laptop. Everything runs ok and I can access my Windows folders from Ubuntu through the host directory but only as Read Only. I have checked to make sure that the Windows folder I want to access (My Documents) is not designated as Read Only in Windows.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba And Windows Networking - Read / Write Access To All Folders Contents From Both Machines

Mar 9, 2011

Ive managed to install samba, I've shared a folder. I can access from a Windows 7 machine via \ubuntupublic. I can put files in the folder form the ubuntu machine and edit them on the windows box. I can put files in the folder/share from the Windows box but then I cannot edit them on the Ubuntu machine (they are read only and have a "Lock" over them). I can fix this by going to the properties of the file/folder in Windows and manually assigning "Everybody" full control (then the lock disappears and all is well.) I want read/write access to all the folders contents from both machines all the time (security is NOT a concern I WANT the permissions wide open) what am I doing wrong?

Security :: When To Give Write Access To Folders On A Web Server

Feb 3, 2011

on the following link [URL] section 2 says

Quote:

The following directories need to be readable, writeable and executable for everyone:

* dokeos/main/inc/conf/
* dokeos/main/upload/users/
* dokeos/main/default_course_document/
* dokeos/archive/

[Code].....

I am not at all convinced by the idea of giving permissions to read,write and execute as these Learning Management Systems say. Let me know what you people have to say? What is the best practise in such situations? I have to get all these LMS run on same web server.

Ubuntu :: Edit File Permissions - Read / Write Access

May 6, 2010

I have apache2 running on my computer. I want to change the permissions for /var/www/ so that I can edit the files without a problem. Right now I can use the gksudo command, but I'd like to be able to have all the files available when using an IDE like eclipse.
I've read in several places that
Code:
chmod 755 /var/www
will do, but if I'm not mistaken that would give read/write access to anyone. I'm not in a production environment, so I'm not too worried about security, but I'd like to give anyone else as less permissions as possible. Would this be possible?

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Freeze (hang) Ntfs Partition Read Write Access?

Jun 4, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit desktop version on ext4 partition without swap. I have maximus iv extreme motherboard with 8 Gbytes RAM. Using 3 internal ntfs formatted hard drives and 3 external ntfs usb 2.0 hard drives.When I am trying to copy or move files FROM or TO any ntfs partiton it is 90 percent chance it is going to freeze.For copy/moving files I am using krusader run as ROOT or as user without root privilege or Nautilus as user without root privilege. It wasn't possible to switch to another terminal - it simply does not react on keyboard or mouse input and only hard reset is possible (scares me because of ntfs disks)From this point of view I have suspicious on ntfs driver but:I am completely beginner in linux and I am looking for help to navigate me how to investigate to find what is causing the problem eventually to solve it?

According to my experience it seems to does not matter if hard disk is internal or external connected through SATA II or SATA III or USB 2.0. I have tried to manipulate with ntfspartitions through the vmware or virualbox or truecrypt software or just do a simplecopy/move files - it have has always the same results - freeze. There is not possible to say how long it is going to work properly and when it is going to freeze - sometimes it's working hour, sometimes it's working couple of seconds - no matter if it is read or write operation/s within ntfs partition.

Ubuntu :: Partitions - Read And Write To From 11.04 And Windows 7

I want to make a new partition that I can read and write to from Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows 7. I haven't used Ubuntu much since 8.10 and it seems that I remember it being much easier to do then. I'm using this partition to store my music, pictures and videos on if that is of any relevance. I also need this to be something that can't mess up my windows side of my computer as I need that for work.

Anybody know how to make an ext3 or 4 partition start up at boot with only the owner and its group having read and write access permissions.I don't want 'others' to have folder access. This is what i have done. / etc/fstab:/dev/sdb5/media/Data ext4 owner 1 2 The folder starts on the boot since it has been allocated a folder as u can see. Next i changed the the ownership and the group ownership of the folder:chown johnny:johnny /media/DataThe problem is that other users can few my partition since 'others' have read access. How do i change that to zero access?

Networking :: Run The Job Under A Root Account And Deny Read/write Access To A Normal User?

Jan 18, 2010

I'm setting up Ubuntu Karmic on my sister's old computer for my nephew, he's quite young so my sister asked to install some content filtering. I'll first setup an OpenDNS account and I've installed and managed to get dansguardian and squid working on a virtual machine to try it out. so far it's working pretty well, but I need to secure it form the inside out.

I was thinking of blocking specific outbound ports so he could not bypass the proxy. because by default the firefox configuration can be easily changed. so I have a couple of questions.

1. is it possible to block outgoing ports on Ubuntu?
2. is that the best method?
3. is there anything else I should be aware of to prevent subversion?

lastly, this question is probably unrelated to this board but I've set up a cron job to update a dynamic ip with OpenDNS, the problem is that the password is in clear text in the user's crontab, can I play with permissions? is it possible to run the job under a root account and deny read/write access to a normal user?

Fedora Servers :: Cannot Start Apache - No Read / Write Access To HTTP Files

Jan 14, 2009

I am trying to setup my webserver and I am trying to make a website to run under suexec but somehow I cannot start my apache it directly fails and SELinux is giving me errors and don't really know what to do with it, it is giving me some command to type but not sure if this will make my server less secure. The SELinux error is as follow:

Code:
Summary:
SELinux prevented httpd reading and writing access to http files.

Detailed Description:
SELinux prevented httpd reading and writing access to http files. Ordinarily httpd is allowed full access to all files labeled with http file context. This machine has a tightened security policy with the httpd_unified turned off, this requires explicit labeling of all files. If a file is a cgi script it needs to be labeled with httpd_TYPE_script_exec_t in order to be executed. If it is read-only content, it needs to be labeled httpd_TYPE_content_t, it is writable content. it needs to be labeled httpd_TYPE_script_rw_t or httpd_TYPE_script_ra_t. You can use the chcon command to change these contexts. Please refer to the man page "man httpd_selinux" or FAQ [URL] "TYPE" refers to one of "sys", "user" or "staff" or potentially other script types.

Allowing Access:
Changing the "httpd_unified" boolean to true will allow this access: "setsebool
-P httpd_unified=1"

Fix Command:
setsebool -P httpd_unified=1

I will write down how I did setup my server so maybe you can see a mistake I did. First I changed my Apache httpd.conf I added the following to it:
Code:
NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.2:80
<VirtualHost 192.168.1.2:80>
ServerName localhost
DocumentRoot /var/www/html
DirectoryIndex index.html index.html index.shtml index.php
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost 192.168.1.2:80>
SuexecUserGroup ulyaoth ulyaoth
ServerAdmin webmaster@ulyaoth.org
ServerName test.ulyaoth.org
DocumentRoot /var/www/ulyaoth/www/html
ErrorLog /var/www/ulyaoth/logs/error_log
CustomLog /var/www/ulyaoth/logs/access_log common
DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.shtml index.php
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /var/www/ulyaoth/www/cgi-bin/
<Directory /var/www/ulyaoth/www/cgi-bin/>
AllowOverride none
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
Options +execCGI
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

Then I created the username "ulyaoth" with the group "ulyaoth" as I specified with my suexec, then I created all the directories as specified in my httpd.conf and "chown ulyaoth:ulyaoth (dirname)" them to the right group and username.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Format For Server & RAID Setup For Multi Platform Read/write/access?

Jun 23, 2011

I'm looking to set up a server with attached mass storage device and tape autoloader to run linux. It's set up under Windows at the moment. Goal is to have users, connecting from individual workstations and laptops, backup their data to the linux server. On their personal machine, some users run linux, some MacOS, some Windows. I plan to set up the 5 500 GB drives as RAID5. I understand that if setting up as software raid the format is "physical volume for RAID". Under this setup, will Windows users be able to read/write and function as expected? I can't assume only linux user access.

SUSE :: Access Windows Drives With Write Access

Mar 12, 2010

I am dual booting OpenSuse 11.2 and Windows 7 both 64bit on my PC. I've got VMware workstation installed on both. I've got few virtual machines which were all created in Windows VMware and they're all stored on a separate partition. I can access this partition and all other NTFS partition from Suse but with read-only permissions. That means I can't run any of these virtual machines from Suse VMware. Is there any possible way to make all these drives writeable from Suse? I'm really hoping someone would be able to help me. I've got a lot of googling and have even searched this forum but without any luck.

General :: Can Only Access Some Folders In Windows XP From Ubuntu 9.04?

Jan 10, 2010

Following a re-install of Ubuntu 9.04 I now find that I am now unable to access some of the Windows folders on the "C:/> Drive" as I did before the re-install was done.

Using the access from "Places" only some of the folders are listed. I have also been trying to re-configure "Wine" to run one or two of the applications in Windows. However, I was able to configure one such application to run but from the External HDD, because I had a backup copy of the ".exe" file. I transferred this file to the Internal HDD and it now runs satisfactory. The other applications are inaccessible because of this "Access" shortcoming. Strangely, I somehow was able to get to the "Start Menu" in Windows listing all the applications' shortcut links, but sadly not the Programs Folder with the ".exe" files in Windows.

I would appreciate any help and/or advice of how I can overcome this problem to enable me to access all Folders in Windows XP.

Server :: Mount Fiber Attached Volume Read/write On Windows And Readonly?

Sep 2, 2010

I have a Windows 2003 server with fiber attached volumes (NTFS) that I would like to mount readonly on a linux system to back it up to tape. The fiber device will allow me to present the volume R/W to one host and R/O to another, however, the R/O system doesn't see any of the changes made by the R/W server. In other words, how can I make a readonly volume refresh, scan for changes, or update without un/re-mounting it?

Is the "mount -o --bind" option what I want? From the MAN is doesn't seem right... the option "sync" seems slightly more promising but I think I'm just grasping at straws here. The best I have come up with is a cron job to unmount then mount the volume periodically.

Ubuntu Networking :: Obtain Write Access To A Windows Machine?

Apr 26, 2010

For some time now, I have been backing up a windows box (data files only) to a ubuntu machine using the following:

mount -t cifs -o user=xxx,password=xxx //windowsshare/ /mnt/

For the first time I needed to restore some files and found I did not have the correct rights to write to the windows machine.

I had already wasted a whole day trying to map the ubuntu machine from windows and failed so this is not an option.

I have tried adding write rights to several accounts on the windows machine, also tried adding write rights to "everyone", checked both the share permissions, as well as the folder permissions.

I read about chmod, and tried to use the command gksudo to do something but this fails with DISPLAY error. Tried several things to fix this which didn't work and I was just going off on a tangent.

In the end I used a CD ROM to copy the files from one machine to another.

So for next time I need to restore a file, how can I give myself rights to do so?

Programming :: Write A RS232 App To Read And Write To An Analog PBX Through A Serial Cable?

May 7, 2008

write a RS232 app to read and write to an analog PBX through a serial cable.I am looking to use perl with Device::SerialPort. For starters,i'd just like to get the connection running between two linux servers as i do not have the specs on the pbx at the moment. To set this connection up between two linux servers,what do i need?Is there any extra packages i need to install, or should it just work,i.e i have the cable connected to both com1 ports and if i do something like

Code:

echo "Hallo" > /dev/ttyS0
from one and

Code:

cat < /dev/ttyS0

from the other, should i expect some comms happening?I have tried this, and its not working, hence my question what i'll need to set up a rs232 connection between two linux servers.

General :: Failing NTFS HDD - Will Ddrescue Read And Write To Windows NTFS Drives

Jun 15, 2008

One of my hard drives is failing. I would like to get some data off it. I backup regularly, but am missing about 1.5 weeks worth of data. Sometimes the drive clicks and fails to operate, and if it does operate, it has a few errors here and there.My failing drive runs Windows XP with a NTFS format. I would like to image the failing drive using ddrescue (I've read that works good) to another NTFS hard drive with more than enough space on it to hold data from the failing HD. I don't even know if this is possible or how to go about this.

* Can ddrescue read from Windows NTFS and write to a NTFS hard drive?

* What do I need to download so I can boot ddrescue from floppy or CD-ROM so I can image one drive to another (perhaps a partition on another)?

* Do I need to download a Linux boot disk or something with ddrescue on it?

* Are there any free or open source Windows programs that do what ddrescue does? This data is important to me, but not important enough to spend a fortune on. It represents about 40 or more hours of work. As a note, I can only get the failing drive to operate if it is set on the primary IDE ribbon and in the first position.
