I'd like to connect to my Ubuntu via my Android Nexus S phone, and ideally using something works similar on Windows 7 as well. I realize that this topic must of been covered a hundred times before, but given I'm not confident even in the basic theory please stay with me;I need to connect via SSL (installing something like open SSL server on the desk top machines) and a suitable app on the phone (like Connectbot for example)And then a VNC client on the phone as well as my Ubuntu and window 7 machines (?)
Can anyone recommend GUI interfaces, good practice tutorials, that they've found helpful. I'm starting on the OpenSSL docs, but an overview just to make sure that I'm looking along the right lines would be cool.
What I am trying to do: I am trying to use my G1 Android Phone as a remote to control my netbook playing music in my bedroom, My net book is playing music from my server using DAAP + Rythmbox. That part is done. The part I can't make work is the Andromote App on my phone controlling when the netbook plays, pause, next, prev, & volume.
What I am using: I am running Ubuntu 9.04 both on my server as well as my netbook (netbook has the netbook interface) I am running a rooted version of Android 1.6. The programs I am trying to use are Rythmbox on my netbook and Andromote on my G1.
I have found countless things that claim to be able to do this for free. I basically want to use my computer's music on my android device while I am not home. Plug in the headphones, press play, and listen to it. Essentially, turning my own computer into my own personal "cloud streaming service" like Ubuntu One.
I have gotten none of them to set up properly. any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to buy a large microSD card if I don't have to, i'd rather just stream it to my phone from my PC.
I don't want it to be WIFI only, I need it to work on my normal data connection.
I am looking to setup a box to play music from Pandora and mp3 audio files over a wifi connection which will also have the ability to control the player from an Android client.I have briefly looked at XBMC and Boxee, but I have no need to play video files, so I not sure if those are overkill for just playing Pandora.
Since I use openbox with some packages from Xfce4 (mainly for convenience) I get most stuff "for free" as it were when using openbox, but I can't figure out how to mount android devices in a simple way. I can either do it manually, or install some other file manager that has this capability. This leads me to my question, I've noticed that if I install Nautilus, which automatically mounts android devices OotB, I get this functionality in Thunar as well. This leads me to believe that there is clearly a dependency package of some kind installed when running apt-get install nautilus that enables it, It'd be great to get this functionality in Thunar without having all the nautilus packages just littering about for no good reason. the required package is gvfs-backends, which I should have realized when I was unable to browse smb:// addresses. You forget a lot when you only make a fresh install once every 2 years or so.
I just got an Evo 4g(great phone) but when I attach it to my computer via USB I can't access the memory card. Linux recognizes it as an Evo and shows it as a USB drive but nothing happens when I try to open it as a folder.
I installed everything and am running android OS on Ubuntu (using androidphonedriver guide). The problem I'm having now is that I don't know how to install android market application to be able to install other apps like opera etc.).
I am currently trying to get my server box to recognize my Samsung epic 4g (sprint) which is rooted and has usb tether enabled. It works perfectly and effortlessly on my ubuntu desktop box, but I hook it up to my server box and ifconfig does not find a usb0 device like my desktop does. I am running 10.4.1 on both desk and server box.

I have a Asus eee box eb1501u running Kubuntu 10.04 LTS (32 bit) and I am trying to get the remote control to work. Many guides for example this one http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title...eeBox_PC_EB150 first states that you should run code...
Before I removed the Windows 7 installation I tested the remote in Windows to make sure it worked and it did. I cant see that there is a possibility to turn on or off the IR-device in the bios settings!? I would really like to make it work in Kubuntu to. I'm pretty n00bish at Linux but I think I can figure it out if someone would point me in the right direction.
I hope this is not a totally ridiculous question. I use putty often to remotely connect to my laptop at home. I recently learned about the Linux framebuffer, and was curious if there was a tool like putty that would let me remotely connect to my laptop but use the /dev/fb0 device for forwarding graphics. Sort of like a vnc or X11 forwarding, but instead of using X, gdm, kdm etc. we use the framebuffer.
I've bought this remote control that sais it works in Vista, XP etc. without any driver. Basically it has a bunch of buttons that replace the mouse and a bunch of others that replace basic keyboard functions (arrows, enter, escape). It has a USB IR receiver so I thought I could simply use it as a lirc remote in Ubuntu.
However, it sais absolutely nothing on it except for "PCremote" so during lirc installation I have no idea what to choose. And, interestingly, I accidentally discovered that it works in Ubuntu, too, out of the box. Controlling the mouse and acting like a keyboard. Is there a way I can forfeit current functionality and just get it to work as a customizable lirc remote? Or even better, keep current functionality but change it only for certain apps (xbmc, vlc etc)?
I have the above bt dongle and I am unable to get the device to scan for remote devices. The dongle and bluetooth software is recognized and from a system point of view is working. Using Suse 11.3 64bits
When I scan the blue led comes on solid and goes back to blinking afterwords but nothing is found. I did try another adapter and the bluetooth worked. BTW The Bluedevel application is real nice and works much better then the kdebluetooth app,
My home network consists of two computers that share one internet connection via a router. I have a desktop computer that runs Ubuntu (Karmic), connected via ethernet; and a netbook that runs Windows 7 (will be Ubuntu, eventually), which connects wirelessly. Both computers have multiple user accounts. What I would like to do is access my account on the Ubuntu desktop via the netbook while my wife is using the desktop with her account (or enable her to access her account on the desktop while I am using it). I looked into VNC, but it, apparently, only supports the active desktop. So, if someone connected to the computer while it was in use, they would be looking at the other user's desktop. Is this a misconception on my part?
So, I have 3 questions: -From the netbook, how can I log into my account on the desktop and just get a command-line shell? - From the netbook, how can I log into my account on the desktop and actually have access to my Gnome desktop? - If I leave my house with the netbook, and want to log into my desktop machine across the internet (CLI and/or Gnome), how can I do that?
I have a Windows 7 (Home Premium) computer and another computer with a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.04 (32-Bit) on it. Since I have the computer with Windows 7 and it doesn't come with Remote access due to it not being at least the Professional edition (which is really lame if you ask me!), I won't be able to access my Windows computer from my Ubuntu computer (from what I have gathered from [URL].. So my question is how can I access my Ubuntu computer from my Windows 7 machine? Does this require more then just installing Samba on the linux machine? I do have RealVNC Enterprise edition 4.51 if that will work?
I can't seem to remotely SSH or VNC into my machine. If I'm on the LAN and try accessing via LAN IP, it works fine. If i go in through a remote address (my dyndns) or even my home IP, I can't connect (yes, all of the ports are forwarded, I've triple checked this multiple times). Interestingly enough, port 80 works just fine. It would seem as though some sort of firewall is blocking me. I've done this plenty of times before with various machines, and this has me quite perplexed.
I'm relatively new to linux. I was wondering if there is any program available that will remotely access my iPhone. I have seen programs that let me controll my PC using my iPhone but i would like the other way around. The girlfriend doesn't have internet access at home and she's always texting me. Well if I find a program that lets me remotely access my device I can text her back without leaving the keyboard. OS: Ununtu 10.10 iPhone 3G Jailbroken (3.1.3)
New member here just looking for a solution for remote access over LAN and the internet. I've known Linux for seven years but have only begun working with it extensively the past couple months. I had recently tried a couple free VNC solutions but ended up giving up when nothing worked. TeamViewer ended up not working properly either and instead crashed at the end of each session. Any chance there's a simple solution to this?
I do what I can to Google and forum surf for answers. How possible, is it for someone like myself that is running:GNOME 2.28.1, Ubuntu 9.10 platform via my laptop, to use and control my desktop which was built by me, via my laptop if it's running the same platform...I've read posts about accessing Windows via Linux, however when it comes to find answers related to my issue, it keeps me from installing the OS on my desktop....If I can acheive that, would I then be able to control both units via speech recognition? The laptop unit has a built in microphone as well as bluetooth. The ultimate goal is to create a complete wireless environment accessible via bluetooth, command based or not...I know it might seem a bit farfetched, I'm just reaching the beginning stages of complications via SSH confusion and acknowledging Remote Access oppourtunities
how i can remote access my pc at home from work ? on different pc that has access to INTERNET. what software shall I install on my pc at home ? I want to be able to install software on my pc at home from my work place, my home pc has unbuntu Linux ubuntu 2.6.31-17-generic #54-Ubuntu SMP Thu Dec 10 17:01:44 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux
My dell notebook runs Ubuntu (Karmic Koala). I want to be able to remote access my mom's Mac notebook (I believe it's an Airbook?), so that I can assist her with problems on her computer.What would I need to do on my computer (and how?)What would I need to do on her computer (and how?) to set this up?
I have installed Ubuntu Server (lamp+openssh) on a laptop in order to use it as a testing web server for my projects. After configuring it I've also installed the GUI to make things easier as I'm not very proficient using just the command line.
I'm using the wireless connection on the laptop to communicate with the router and my main desktop (Windows). I've assigned it a static local IP (192.168.1.99) in order to be able to access the sites on my web server from my desktop, and everything works fine.
Now comes my problem: I need to be able to access those local sites from a remote location (outside of my local network) as well. How can I do that?
