CentOS 5 :: Remote Desktop Server On Centos

Jul 29, 2010

I'm currently in the last steps of migrating a CentOS mailserver to the x64 version.However, under the old 32 bit version, I was using XRDP to access the Centos box from my Windows boxes.However I can't seem to find the XRDP package in the standard repos so this is prompting me to look at possible alternatives (XRDP was incompatible with my windows 7 box anyway soI had to RDP to another server of ours running 2003 to RDP into the mailserver which was far from ideal).Basically, I'd like to be able to seamlessly access the Centos box with a standard RDP client.

I know VNC Server/Clients would be an option but RDP gives me the freedom of any windows box being able to access the server on the same adress/port without installing software on any windows box I encounter.Are there any viable alternatives to XRDP ?There's no "add-on" to VNC server that could enable it to accept RDP connections ?

CentOS 5 :: Remote Desktop To Administrate RT

Jul 27, 2010

I am relatively new to Linux, but have been running Ubuntu for quite a while personally. I am setting up a simple CentOS server to run RT: Request Tracker [URL] here at work. This is going to be a simple virtual server running on VMware ESXi. I have the server up and running in VMware workstation. Since this will be a virtual server we will need to remotely administrate it. It is not a member of our Windows domain, it doesn't really need to be. So I can't connect to it remotely, and I am stuck. I have set the remote desktop preferences, and choose not to ask for confirmation, and set a password, but I cannot connect. I am using VNC Viewer. If I enter the host name it cannot be found, I am guessing because it isn't part of the domain DNS doesn't know how to find the host, but it also doesn't work when I attempt to connect via IP address. I can ping, and I can SSH with Putty but we will need to remote desktop to administrate RT.

CentOS 5 Server :: Remote Installation Of Rssh On 5.2?

Mar 17, 2009

I'm an OS X user that's just acquired a CentOS 5.2 server. The server contains a basic installation of CentOS 5.2 with OpenSSH already installed, which I use to connect to the server using OS X terminal. I have no physical access to the machine and if I somehow cripple OpenSSH I will need to pay a technician to fix the problem for me. So I'd like to get the instructions straight before I go in and mess around with the system.

I want to install a package that will allow me to add additional users so that they can upload files but not mess around with the system configuration. From searching on google rssh seems to be a viable path. So I'd like to go with that unless there's a better option.

I came across these tutorials: SFTP Setup for CentOS 4.5-5.x and How to: Restrict Users to SFTP and Block SSH Shell Access with rssh. But I haven't followed the instructions in either yet. I'm unsure if I'll be able to execute all of the steps remotely without compromising my root account's SSH access.

Fedora :: X Crashes - Ssh To A Remote Centos Server Using X11 Forwarding

Nov 24, 2009

My X crashes when I...

1) ssh to a remote centos server using X11 forwarding
2) open the virt-manager remote application (the virtualization management app)
3) Open the remote console

Just to be clear, my local X11 crashes. I get back to the log in screen.

I get in my Xorg log:


Fatal server error:

-Is this enough for a bug report?
-How I can make X dump a core file for better debugging?
-Do -debug RPM packages still exist, and if so, should I install one for the X server and will this help with debugging, and if so, how do I install it.

CentOS 5 Server :: Implement Virtualization Using A Remote Connection?

Jun 26, 2009

The word on all lips are "virtualization" so I decided to smell this flavor.
I have a machine running CentOS 5.3 64bit and I have unlimited access to this machine, but I don't want to reach it physically.
Is it possible to install and maintain a virtual medium using ssh or other remote connection?
When I installed the OS I have selected the packets regarding the virtualization, but now from where can I start?
Is somewhere a guide for doing this?

CentOS 5 :: Remote Shutdown Server Through Power Switch?

Jul 13, 2009

I have built a Centos 5.3 server for a friend of mine that is being used as a NAS server. The server has 4 1TB drives in a RAID 5 configuration and a dedicated non raid system drive for the OS. My friend isnt very Linux literate so I need this bow to be relatively simple. I have worked most of it out but have a question with regards to remote reboot.

I need to be able to shut this device down through the power switch without human intervention (at the moment when the power switch is pushed the server asks to confirm shutdown) the server wont have a Monitor connected so this isn't practical. Is it possible to use the power switch to do an clean, immediate shutdown?

The other option is shutdown through a web page is this something that has been done before? I know he can do it through terminal by issuing a shutdown now command but as I said this guy wants something simple. I don't really want to explain everytime he needs to shut the Server down how to do it if he can just do it via a website or even with the power button.

CentOS 5 :: FreeTDS Error Connecting To Remote SQL Server Db?

Nov 21, 2010

I am working on a project where I need to connect to a remote MS SQL Server database with PHP from a CentOS 5.5 server. I was able to get it installed and working on my Mac OS X 10.6 laptop with unixODBC and FreeTDS. However, I am unable to get it configured on my CentOS server. unixODBC and FreeTDS were installed, but when I try to connect, I get the following error message:

Connection Failed:[unixODBC][Driver Manager]Can't open lib '/usr/lib/libtdsodbc.so.0' : /usr/lib/libtdsodbc.so.0: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32

From what I could find by scouring the internets,it appears that I have 32 bit unixODBC (or FreeTDS, I'm not sure) installed (libtdsodbc.so.0 is symlinked to libtdsodbc.so.0.0.0) and it needs to be 64 bit. However, when I try to install the 64 bit version with

yum install freetds.x86_64

I get a message that it is already installed.Is there something else I need to do to get around this error? I'm a developer and not a server, so I'm not sure where else to go.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Lost The Ability To Ping/ssh/http Remote Server?

I've explored hosts.deny, /var/log/secure and even turned iptables off to see if it would fix anything. To no avail. Here's what my ssh login attempt looks like:
