Ubuntu :: System Settings For Proxy Username And Password?

Aug 31, 2010

I'm trying to use Kubuntu 10.04 in a corporate environment. Our environment uses an internet proxy that requires a username and password.Under Ubuntu 10.04, I can use the GUI to set the proxy host, port, username and password. When I do this, all the web browsers work, Snyaptic works, etc.However, under Kubuntu 10.04, the GUI lets me specify a proxy host and port, but doesn't appear to save the username and password. Because of this, I have to manually set the proxy information on my web browser, but the package managers don't work because they can't access the internet. Apparently the ability to specify proxy username and password is either broken or unfinished.

Ubuntu Security :: System Can't Remember Username Password?

Jun 4, 2011

I've been using ubuntu 9.10 for years and never been asked for username and password, always started straight away. Today I started the computer, it's asking for them and doesn't accept the password so it's trapped in a loop. I changed the password, no luck, the username when starting seems to be different from the one when I'm changing it. Something like "Mart Di", versus "mart". Tried both with new and old passwords. Does the password expireor something?

Ubuntu Security :: Locking System Proxy Settings

Mar 3, 2010

I installed DansGuardian. In order for it to work I set the system wide proxy. However it is really easy to get around DansGuardian by going to preference proxy setting. How do I password protect this setting so it requires a password to change proxy setting? Preferably a different password than the normal sudo password if possible. If not I at least want the sudo password protecting it! I run multiple browsers so doing it via the system rather than the browser made the most since.

Slackware :: Achieve System-wide Proxy Settings

Jun 23, 2011

I want to set the HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY and http_proxy and FTP_PROXY environment variables "somewhere", so all programs that recognise these can find them. I need root to find them for slackpkg and sbopkg, I need users to find them for Dropbox, I need them for cronjobs and scripts and wget.So I want to set these environment variables up somewhere, preferably something in /etc and have them set and accessible for everyone and everything. I am not using KDE or XFCE or any desktop. I need a command line solution.

Where is the best place to put this? I see that some other distros have a /etc/environment and these variables go in there. In Slackware, should I add them as a new file in /etc/profile.d and have them added every time /etc/profile is accessed? Is there a Slackware approved method that I don't know about?

Ubuntu Servers :: Users On The Machine Can Login Into Vsftpd With Their Username And Password On The Machine And Go To Their Root Dir "/home/username"?

Nov 3, 2010

I recently installed vsftpd on my server. I noticed that users on the machine can login into vsftpd with their username and password on the machine and go to their root dir "/home/username".Now, I want to give some people a vsftpd username and password so they can upload and download files and folders to their folder, but this folder has to be in the "/var/www/(username)" folder. I don't want them to be able to go to any other folder than their own folder like "/var", "/etc" or "/home" etc. Also I don't want them to be able to login on the machine as a user, through putty for example. They should only be allowed to acces their folder with vsftpd, nothing else.

Fedora :: When Do "start > Computer > System Settings > About Me" And Try To Type In Password Get The Following Error?

Jul 17, 2009

I just installed Fedora 11 (KDE) off of the Live boot CD. I made a really simple password when I was installing, but later I decided to make up a much tougher version of it. When I do "start > computer > system settings > about me" and try to type in my password I get the following error:"BAD PASSWORD: is too similar to the old one BAD PASSWORD: is too similar to the old one BAD PASSWORD: is too similar to the old one passwd:Have exhausted maximum number of retries for service"This is weird because it seems like the system thinks I made three attempts, while I only tried once. Does anyone know what is going on? By the way I don't know why it thinks my password is too similar, It only has 3 of the same letters out of 8 Also, this is my home computer, why does fedora restrict me from a similar password? It should just warn me about it but then let me do it.

Ubuntu :: Prompted For Username And Password At Startup?

Aug 30, 2010

not for the typical username and password that I use to log into my computer. It's actually prompting me, upon startup/reboot to have me insert my name and password, in what appears to be the command prompt. I am still a noob with Ubuntu and Linux in general, so I have no idea what I did to make this happen. It's not terrible and zomg if it doesn't get fixed I'll die, but it is slightly inconvenient to have to "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start" every time I reboot my computer. Anyone know what I have to do to fix this?I would also like to apologize if this has been covered in another topic, but I could not find anything

Ubuntu :: Install Without Username And Password (donation Pc)?

Oct 3, 2010

I am holding a computer building workshop with my school's technology club. We are going to build a computer from scratch and install Ubuntu on it. Since we are going to donate the computer to an underprivileged elementary school student who is yet to be determined, I don't want to setup a generic username and password.Is there anyway fully install Ubuntu and then on first boot have the student type in their desired username and password? I want to make this as easy as possible for the student. I am really excited for this event and glad that I can give back to the community.
