CentOS 5 Networking :: Accessing Windows PC From Centos
Jul 29, 2011
I have a small network with my Centos 5.6 box and a Win XP PC on it.I can access the files on the PC from the Centos box by bringing up the RUN window (ALT-F2 in Gnome) and typing smb://192.168.1.X/C (where X is the address of the PC), and I get a window with the C: drive from my PC. I can then drag/drop files between the Centos box and the PC. Here are my questions:
1) I want to script the file transfer, so how do I do this from the command line?
2) On the PC, I have 2 drives C, and E. They appear to be set up the same, but the E drive looks empty when I do this using the interactive method above.
I found this tutorial http:[url]..... but I can't get my PC "visible" in the smbtree.Really, I just want to write a script that does a backup on the Centos box and copies it to the E (External) Drive on the PC. (I'm a novice when it comes to administration)
i find this is an issue which might be tiresome for everyone except for those experts. Esp. for the computers which are dual booting(both windows xp and centos installed in the same computer), that when we are in CentOS we need to switch onto windows immediately. and vice versa. i see this is possible only by shutting down the centos/windows and then restarting onto the other OS.
Can anyone tell me the the solution to work simultaneously both xp and centos without the need of shutting down and restarting There maybe or may not be the solution...but i find the pleasure to know if there is for example, remote desktop connection in windows xp, is there any solution, we can work on windows via centos or vice versa ( in the same machine),
This will be a little long (having read Phil's 'how to ask questions' FAQ). I'm trying to get OpenVPN working between my CentOS server and some Windoze laptops running XP. There seems to be plenty of sample config files available, but to date, none of them have worked for me. Pulling out my trusty Wireshark, I've found some clues,
BACKGROUND: My local subnet (NAT'ed by my gateway router) is 192.168.52.x. My router has been configured with a conduit (port-forward) for port 1194 (the standard OpenVPN port), which points towards my CentOS server.The CentOS server is .52.112, and the supplicant is .52.110. I have tried the lient both inside and outside my local subnet, with no difference in events or outcomes.
My setup is as follows: eth0 - lan ip eth1 - WAN ip
I have installed a sip server on the box. From the box I would like to access machines on wan and lan. First of all, is it possible? If yes, I have setup up the nics with default wan gateway. However, when I try to ping wan url, no response. Are there other things I need to do to accomplish this?
I have a fresh install of CentOS 5.5. I am trying to browse to the Windows machines on my network (Places > Network Servers > Windows Network), but I get a blank window. I am able to ping the Windows machines using their IP address, but not by their name. What do I need to do to be able to see the Windows machines and also to connect to shared folders on these machines? So far I have tried starting SMB (via System > Administration > Server Settings > Services). I have also tried changing my smb workgroup to "WORKGROUP" (the default was mygroup which did not match my Windows machines.
I tried to reinstall Centos, and the reinstall failed due to a flash disk being pulled out in the middle of the operation. I am left with an un-bootable system and I want to access my data, if possible.
Prior to the reinstall the disk info was: == BEGIN cat /etc/fstab == /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1 LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2 tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
So, The disks are still intact (I hope) but the LVM information is gone.is there anyway I can access /dev/sda2? When I try mounting it from the Rescue environment the command hangs, i.e. nothing happens.
3 partitions (in order): Windows 7, CentOS and shared data partition.
I need to increase the size of the Windows 7 partition (c:windowswinsxs seems to be something not easily remedied).
GParted didn't work in moving things around (bad sector) so I wiped out its partition (# 2 out of 3) and I was able to increase the size of the Windows 7 partition (I can reinstall CentOS easily and not much work lost).
Except ... no more grub menu (unsurprising). This incantation does allow me to boot into Windows 7.
Is there any way of rebuilding the grub menu short of reinstalling CentOS (5.5)?
I have a webservice which runs under Apache Tomcat. The service is started via a script in /etc/init.d. During the course of the Web service processing, the software must make use of the two NVIDIA GPUs on the computer to do some graphics processing. When this system is booted but not logged in, the web service is accessible but the software cannot access the software cannot access the X server to do it's processing. However, when I am logged in, the user can access the X servers and run correctly. I have tried various solutions but I always have to be logged in to run the software. I seem to have permissions problems but I'm unsure how to resolve them
Is there any way to grant permissions to root (the tomcat service is started as root) to allow it to run the software without logging in?
I am running CentOS 5.4 with Gnome display manager.
I've Got one Problem with My Computer soon after success installation of when the boot-loader ask me to choose OS at CENTOS 5.4, multi boot boot-loader if i choose windows then computer tries to boot windows but fail and give the error message that there is a problem on reading the hard disk, But when i restart it and start with LINUX then computer start successful with no error message, now i do not know what to do cause i need to use Windows and all my programs are in windows..
We are slowly migrating from a predominantly Windows house to a 50/50 Win/RHEL operation and even further in the future.Currently, we have a LOT of Windows folders that are created by custom applications which, upon creation of a new folder set, applies the corresponding ACL so that only the associated groups are able to access the folders. Now for the problem, we are migrating the applications to a RHEL55 environment and it is creating the folders on that system now but the groups are still residing in the Windows AD. Is there an "easy" (I know, a very relative term) to have the Windows groups given permission to the Linux shares without very much manual intervention?
I am wondering what is the fastest way for me to move files from a VPS running CentOS to my home PC? I do not have FTP or anything like that installed. Are there commands I can enter in putty, for example, that will simply download an entire directory on the VPS onto my home PC?
I'm experimenting with CentOS DS and have a question.Is it possible to attach windows xp machines to a CentOS DS? If so, how?!I think I've skimmed most of the documentation out there. Did I miss something? Is this not what the DS was designed to do?
I have been using the Centos 5.4 live CD to do volume resizing etc for root volume which can't be readily dismounted. I have also been using it to clone systems. It is a really great tool - even offering the same GUI interface I have come to know and love...One added feature which would be great for me would be to package "nx server" and/or "webmin" with it so it can be used to maintain remote and "headless" servers.
That way - when heavy duty maintenance is required on a remote system - the sysadmin (me) could ask the site owner to boot with the live cd - and do the rest remotely. Also it would make maintenance of headless servers easier.I'm not sure whether the live cd is inherited more or less complete from the upstream provider - or whether it is completely re-packaged at centos. I'm also not sure how technically difficult it is to re-package a live cd with extra services.
I have set up two identical websites and want them to access the same mysql database. I've entered the username/password/db name in the website database.inc file. However, one database works fine and displays correctly, the other just gives a blank page. I've tested apache and it can display a different site (one that does not access any db). So is there a configuration that i'm missing. Do i have identify the two different websites that access the db?
I have an application running on a centOS machine that needs to access a database on a CentOS server. I granted access to all users with a certain user name and password.i opened up port 3306 as well with the following command: /sbin/iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --destination-port 3306 -j ACCEPTbut whenever i try to connect from my machine i get an error:ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on '172.16.102.129' (113)I am using mysql version 5.0.77 on centOS 5.5.
I had Windows XP Pro 32 bit and CentOS 5.4 installed on my Dell M6400 laptop and life was wonderful. Until I had to reinstall Windows. In the process, I reformated the C: partition of the drive where the Windows operating system was installed. I was careful NOT to reformat anything else. Now I cannot boot CentOS. The drive that has both the Windows and CentOS still shows the same partitions as were there before I reinstalled Windows, namely:
NTFS (C:) 171.82 GB /boot 102 MB (F:) 60.96 GB
is where my CentOS partition has all of my linux data and apps. I assume /boot should be the boot partition for CentOS I use Acronis OS Selector to show the partitions to boot. Now CentOS doesn't show as an option even if I go through the process of trying to detect a CentOS boot partition using OS Selector. I have researched this in the forums but have not found anything that was of help. There was a thread from someone who had trouble booting Ubuntu on a system with Windows Vista and CentOS but I did not see anything there that looked like it would help in my situation.
I installed Tomcat5.5.23 on CentOS5.2 running on Sun xVM Virtual Box2.1.2. When i try to view Tomcat( Running in Vitual Centos)'s home page in the web browser of Host( XP sp2) am getting the "Connection Time out" error.. How to resolve this problem.
I just started setting up a linux box in the office...I have some experience with ssh commands but not setting up a linux system and stuff.The box is connected to our network but I have no clue how to make windows & osx talk with it. How can I go by doing that and also setting up an apache server to be able to connect through network. Right now I have apache/linux/mysql running it works when i go to localhost, but I would also like to let all the computers in office to access it. I would guess that will deal with virtual host which I know how to setup. I just need to setup an IP.
In my office i have a network of 172.16.31.0 and a squid proxy server running, all other systems have windows XP and one system has centos. On centos system i have three lan cards and i want to test some things on it. So i assigned another IP on it of range 192.168.7.0/24 and same range on another windows system. And all the systems connected through a same network switch.
Unable to ping between Centos and Windows system. If i ping from one centos to windows system with the series of 172.16.31.0 then it replies very well but same thing is not happening in other 192.168.7.0/24 IP series.
And I'm currently working on a new CentOS 5 install I've made on a computer I've got.. So I'm now trying to get that computer to reach my home network through one of my other computers, which have got XP installed. I've configured the XP computer to act as a gateway from one network card to another, and It works with another XP pc, but no luck with my CentOS 5. I used this link [URL] And I configured the correct network card.
So.. the IP of the XP machine is 192.168.1.70, which I have set as a static. So that the CentOS will find it. And I've connected the (fully working) network cable correctly.
What do I have to do?
I have configured the CentOS to recieve an IP dynamically. (dhcp).. Might that be the problem? (well.. one of the problems.. I've tried to set it to static.. ...?)
Is there more to it than this? I mean when I'm working on communication through an XP machine... ?
i have Centos 5.3 installed with TXT mode i want to create and share one folder to be accesible to me from the network, to download and share files into it with my Host, i created the folder but dont know how to share it,
i have a centos 5.5 server running tomcat,oracle xe,apache etc..i would like to be able my windows machine to access this server by name, and not ip, for example have http://backserv:7080 for oracle xe web admin and so on..i know one way is DNS, but if i install oracle on a windows machine in peer-to-peer network, i can allready access with by it's name. o i'm guessing i should do something with samba, wins or something like that.never mind i got now for the REAL complex stuff of insalling web sphere 7 without user interface (need to look for a response file).
I have set up a Samba share via my CentOS 5 server (the samba share is actually a mounted filesystem, not local machine space). I have been successful in adding permissions for my windows users within the smb.conf, but have an additional need that I cannot figure out. I would like for my Windows administrators to be able to create folders and assign permissions from their machines (and their Windows GUI). Ultimately I need the folders on the Samba share to behave correctly when Windows group permissions are applied by these administrators.
When the folders are created, the "Everyone" identity cannot be deleted and sometimes "Creator Owner" or "Creater Group" show up. I have seen several threads start down this path, but haven't seen a definite answer (I may have just missed it!).
