CentOS 5 :: WebDAV - Limiting Access To Subfolders?

Dec 13, 2010

On our web server I want to have a WebDAV folder and I would like customers to be able to log in with MySQL authentication from our customers database (this I have set up with no problems and it works fine). HOWEVER, I want each customer to have their own subfolder and, having logged in with access to the main WebDAV folder, I want each customer ONLY to be able to access their own subfolder(s). I don't mind them seeing other subfolders exist but obviously I don't want them to have access to other customers subfolders.

OK, of course I could achieve this by adding new WebDAV locations to the httpd.conf for every customer but with a large number of customers httpd.conf will become very large and messy. I have tried applying further restrictions by putting an .httaccess file in each subfolder but that doesn't work - indeed the presence of a .htaccess file oddly prevents users from seeing any other files in the subfolder but has no effect on the access.

CentOS 5 Server :: Samba Share - Subfolders Users Access

Mar 4, 2010

I installed Samba on CentOS, create a principal share called "public" . I want to populate this share with subfolders, and to grant access rights to specific folders for specific users. The content of "public" will be visible for all Samba users, but they will have read/write access only to the specified subfolders based on my security policy. I need the best way for doing this kind of stuff...

Ubuntu Servers :: Webdav Access - When Connect From Nautilus - Says - Access Was Denied

Mar 26, 2010

I'm having a problem with my webdav share. I have a secure webdav folder that gets accessed via a non-standard port and requires basic authentication. I can connect and interact with it fine via cadaver. However, when I try to connect from nautilus, it says "Access was denied." To make it even stranger, sometimes I can click on the folder in nautilus (it still mounts) and access it. Sometimes not (just repeats the error message and won't show me the contents). I may not even un-mount it, but just look at other folder, then click it again and be able to access it, but again - only rarely.

I asked a friend to try connecting from his windows vista computer and it would not work. It would not work from my windows XP virtual computer either. However, it mounts and works just find from my work computer (also Windows XP).

So it seems to be a 50/50 chance that the drive will mount on any given computer/system and work. Do anyone know what the problem may be? I'm guessing user permissions, but I can't figure out what.

I've made sure the webdav folder is owned by www-data and www-data has read access to the password file as well.

When I try connecting from nautilus, I get this in the log file:


Here is one of the (many) sites I've tried looking at: [url]

Ubuntu Servers :: Migrate WebDAV To New WebDAV?

Feb 2, 2011

I have a WebDAV folder (complete folder hierarchy in fact) currently managed by SAP's KM module. Long story short: it's in Windows, it's slow, I hate it.

I want to migrate the hole tree to my brand new Ubuntu Server 10.04 with a functional WebDAV server I just finished configuring. It connects to LDAP for user authentication, it's fast, it works like a charm.

Do you guys know any way I can transfer/migrate files from the Windows WebDAV to to Ubuntu WebDAV? The only thing that is important to keep is file security properties. Both WebDAVs have the same user database: our corporate Active Directory.

Server :: Limiting POP3/IMAP Access Frequency?

Sep 24, 2010

My server listens to POP3/IMAP requests. Some users have configured their mailers with high checking frequencies, say once every minute, such that the system logs are full of entries with no significance at all.I'd like to ask if there is a way to limit the per IP frequency of POP3/IMAP access ?I'm using "xinetd" to wrap the "ipop3d" and "imapd" which come with the Alpine package.

Networking :: Limiting Sshfs Access To Specific Directory / Tunneling Nfs Over Ssh

Jan 22, 2010

I have a server with a /data/ directory, everything in the /data/ folder has "-rwxrw-rw- 1 root root" permissions.all works fine, multiple users are mounting this over a lan and everyone is able to modify files. However I would like to be able to access the /data/music/ directory from the internet.

Is it possible to configure sshfs to only accept logins from a user restricted to reading the /data/music directory, or would it be possible to tunnel nfs over ssh in such a way that everyone on the lan 192.168.0.xxx has unrestricted access to the data directory, but something coming from outside only has read access to the music directory. Although is one were tunneling nfs over ssh, the nfs mount request would appear to come from the server itself. The router is at and the server is at Seems very much like what I want to do, however I'm having a bit of trouble getting this to work well with other users mounting with full rights over the lan too.

Ubuntu Servers :: Webdav + Nautilus = Forbidden - DON'T Have "Options Indexes" In Apache Config File When Try To Access Via Firefox

Feb 20, 2010

I've installed webdav on my server and I can access it fine through cadaver. However, when I try to access it via nautilus, I get Forbidden. It is NOT secured (SSL). When I try to access it via firefox, I get an error since I DO NOT have "Options Indexes" in my apache config file. If I add this option in, then I can browse the root direction and webdav folder via firefox, but still not from nautilus. what other information you need. I've googled and searched the forums for awhile, but not "solutions" I found have worked for me. I want the webdav folder to just be a single folder within the direction, so this is how I have my config file setup:


As a side-note...when I included "Option Indexes", it allowed me to view the passwd.dav file from firefox!That doesn't seem very good...

Ubuntu :: Can't Write On Webdav Mounted Drive

Jul 16, 2010

I use davfs2 to mount a Webdav drive at startup. It mounts correctly and I have read access to all files my account gives me access to. One big problem though: I can't create of modify any file. I know it is not a user account problem because everything works well when I mount the drive in Windows 7 using WebDrive.

Here's the entry in /etc/fstab to automatically mount the drive:

http://someserver.local/docs /home/my_user/km_docs davfs user,rw,auto 0 0

The Webdav is hosted on a local SAP Portal server (if anyone is familiar with this).

I also tried to use Cadaver. It connects and reads perfectly. But when I try to create a file, I get a "409 Conflict" error, even the file has never existed on the server before.

Ubuntu :: How To Mount WebDAV Share At Boot

Nov 22, 2010

So here's: sudo apt-get install fusedav

Make a mount location, chown the directory, give yourself permissions.

I put my script in /etc/init.d. I'm sure you could put it anywhere though.

Paste the following in the file.

Make the permissions readable only by root, because it has your password in plain text.

Make it executable.

Make it run at boot.

Reboot and use.

CentOS 5 Server :: Cannot Access VMware Via Infrastructure Web Access

May 9, 2011

I've recently installed CentOS 5, because I needed a good OS to run VMware Server. Just a heads up, I'm not very familiar with RH/CentOS distros, I usually use Arch Linux. My VMware install went fine, config is standard settings. Now I'm trying to access the VMware Infrastructure Web Access using port 8222 (http) and 8333 (https), but it's a no go. I'm connecting from another machine on the LAN, as the CentOS box is headless. I restarted the vmware services, and they seem to be launching fine. I don't know much about VMware though. I verified with netstat and ports 8222 and 8333 are listening.

OpenSUSE Network :: Mounting Apache WebDAV Share On Windows 7

Aug 12, 2011

I want to setup a SSL encrypted WebDAV share on my OpenSUSE 11.4 server that is accessible from the internet. Everything is working fine when using Windows XP or Linux clients, but a connection with Windows 7 is not possible ("the selected folder is not valid").

I already searched for a solution to this problem I tried several setups:
- with and without encryption
- with Basic authentication
- with Digest authentication
- without authentication

I did not have success so far. Is there any solution to this (except not using Windows 7)? Or can anyone confirm that this should be working (and maybe my configuration is messed up)?

Ubuntu Security :: Encrypts On WebDAV Share ... Error Message?

I'm trying to make ecryptfs work on my GMX Mediacenter share (a service quite popular in Germany). I followed the instructions to include my mediacenter share in my fstab which works pretty well. So now I'm able to connect via Secure WebDAV as a regular user (no sudo needed). When connected, I try to create a ecryptfs transparent layer so everything saved remotely is seamlessly encrypted. Although no error message is thrown during creation, the process fails. When entering the remote share (cd mediacenter) and performing any remote command such as "ls -la", the following error message is thrown:

Ubuntu Servers :: WebDAV - Mountable But Empty Below 2nd Subdir Level?

Jul 3, 2011

I am using Safesync from Trendmicro to backup my data. Since some time I am experiencing heavy problems. Normally my Backup should look like this: But when I am mounting it with WebDAV, it is looking different:

cdrewing@christian-desktop:~$ sudo mount -t davfs http://dav.trendmicro.safesync.com /media/Safesync
[sudo] password for cdrewing:
Gib bitte den Benutzernamen f�r den Server http://dav.trendmicro.safesync.com an; wenn du keinen angeben willst, dr�cke Return.


Note: When I am mounting Safesync with Nautilus, everything is functional and ok. But I need my command line access because I want to use rsync. A workaround could be to access the resource via the nautilus mount. Where can I find this via the command line?

Ubuntu Security :: Can't Connect To Netdisk Space From Off-campus Using The Secure WebDAV Bookmark

Jan 13, 2010

My workplace recently switched to Active Directory for our netdisk space (I work at a University in the US). The "only way" (recommended) by our IT department is to use a cifs protocol. I've had absolutely no luck with that at all. However, it turns out that there is secure WebDAV protocol setup which works well on campus. If I'm off campus I have to connect via a VPN connection; our school uses Cisco Anyconnect 2.3.0254. It works well for me to connect to a printer, etc on campus.

Here's my problem: I can't connect to my netdisk space from off-campus using the Secure WebDAV bookmark that was working oncampus, even when I am connected via the VPN connection. I am using UFW. Is there a port I need to open up, or am I missing something else?

Networking :: Limiting Bandwith From 2 ISP With Using One Server

Feb 21, 2011

I have 2 ISP where give me IP Public with ISP A (/29) and ISP B (/28). So, I connect this two ISP to unmanaged switch. And from that switch, I take one cable connected to eth0 on the server. (Note : My server have 2 dev ethernet, eth0 and eth1). eth1 will go to the Switch which will go to the LAN.

My Question is : 1. Is this possible to make bandwith control on the gateway server with mode separating International bandwith and local bandwith (my country bandwith)? ie, for my Mail Server I will give the "intl bandwith" only 512 kpbs and for local bandwith with 1Mbps. What a software can I use for this model ?

2. Which model I should to used, with NAT or with Bridging router? That's all for now..

General :: Limiting Concurrent FTP Connections - Less Than 10?

Feb 1, 2011

FTP servers I use frequently have imposed a simultaneous connections limit, usually 5-10 at the time. It was no problem under Windows, since Windows artificially limits allowed FTP connections to ~10 as far as I know. But it is a problem under Linux very much since I cannot find how to limit them :/ So far I used these clients: Native FTP client (Places -> Connect to FTP server). No apparent way to limit connections.

FileZilla. Under particular server settings you can limit number of simultaneous connections. Also you can do that globally in Edit -> Preferences -> Transfers. Problem is, it doesn't work, I still keep getting the 530 Sorry the maximum number of clients (10) for this user are already connected. And netstat shows quite a few simultaneous FileZilla connections no matter that I limited them to 1 both in global and local settings.

NCFTPPUT. 10 successful uploads and hi 530. Total Commander under Wine. Same. NetBeans IDE integrated ftp. Same. Some other crapy FTP clients which names I already forgot. Same. OS is Ubuntu 10.04 So, is there any way to force any of these FTP clients to use less than 10 concurrent connections?
