Debian :: Deny The Users 2 & 3 From Accessing Windows Driver And Folders?

Oct 30, 2010

as we know in windows xp drive and folder permissions, we perform (folder-right click-properties-security tab-we check, group or user and assign ALLOW or DENY access to the folders) In the same way i want to DENY access to my windows driver sda1 & sda2 from the Debian OS. my system is being used by 3 users: user1, user2 & user3. All can access to all Volumes, so I want to Deny the users 2 & 3 from accessing my windows driver and folders. BUT i alone user 1 should have permission to access them. How do i change that in Debian 5.5? Allow/Deny Permissions to Volumes.

Fedora :: Requires Root Password When Accessing Second Windows Hard Disk?

Aug 28, 2010

I have a second hard disk which has windows and C and D drives partitions. When I boot fedora 13, fedora automatically mounts them as 53 Gb Filessytem and 200 GB Filessytem. But when i try to browse to these filesystem, fedora ask me root password. How I can configure fedora so that it does not ask me root password and this change should be permanent ( surving computer shutdown and restart) ? I want these windows partitions to be reachable by me as the non-root user.Also given /dev/sdb (the windows disk) what is the command line to find out the filesytem path to which various paritions on /dev/sdb are mapped to?

Server :: Debian Apache2 Rewriting Subdirectory To Root Breaks Accessing Cgi Scripts

May 25, 2010

OS: Debian 5.0.4
Server: Apache2

I've used mod_rewrite to rewrite my apache2 root (my.server.com/) to point to /var/www/drupal6/ instead of /var/www/. I also have a script installed in my cgi-bin (/usr/lib/cgi-bin) but since the rewrite I can't seem to access it. When I go to my.server.come/cgi-bin/test.pl, I get a page not found from my drupal.

Is there a way I can access my cgi-bin without resorting to accessing my drupal through my.server.com/drupal6/?

Background: I have installed drupal CMS which has a base address of my.server.com/drupal6/ as it resided in /var/www/drupal6/. However I wanted users to be able to access it as my.server.com/ so I added the following into my httpd.conf

Code:
NameVirtualHost *:80
<Directory /var/www/drupal6>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /

General :: Accessing A Windows Box Via VNC Through A Debian Server Via SSH?

Aug 25, 2009

I am using XP at work. I want to get to my home XP box. I have been using VNCTight with port forwarding from my router to get to my home box. I have a Debian server I use just for SSH (no graphics). I would like to open a SSH tunnel to my Debian box, then open a VNC connection that will go through the ssh and then be forwarded to my home XP box. This way everything from my work computer (or wireless laptop) will be secure to my internal network. I know that I can buy software, but that is not as fun and I wont be learning anything that way.

Debian :: Adding New Users Restricted To Root

Debian Installation :: Different Locales For Root And Users

Mar 30, 2015

I've just installed a Debian wheezy and I'm experiencing some issues regarding the "locales". No matter what I've tried (ran "dpkg-reconfigure locales" and restarted my session, edited "/etc/default/locale" then ran "locale-gen") to update the locales, running "locale" in a root shell or as a regular user returns different results.

In a root shell, the result is the right one (similar to "/etc/default/locale").

I do not understand why locales values are different in one case or another.

As a side question, what is the correct syntax for /etc/default/locale ? Is it case sensitive (I've encountered "en_US.utf8" and "en_US.UTF-8") ? Are double quotes mandatory (encountered values with or without double quotes) ?

user@pc ~ cat /etc/default/locale

Code: Select all#  File generated by update-locale
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC=fr_FR.UTF-8
LC_TIME=en_GB.UTF-8

Debian :: Why Only Root Has Internet Connection And Other Users Don't

Jan 12, 2016

When launching any program (iceweasel, ssh, dropbox) that requires internet connection as a normal user it does not connect.

However if I try launching them as root it does. Sometimes, I have to manually disable/enable wifi and then reboot in order to access Internet, sometimes it works and sometimes it does not.

OpenSUSE Install :: Expanding Root And Home Logical Volumes

Jul 9, 2011

So today I needed to switch from openSolaris to a viable OS on my workstation and decided to install openSUSE after having good experiences with it on my personal laptop. I ran into some problems partitioning one of the two hard disks installed on the system. I was limited on the amount of time I could spend at the office doing the install so I decided to use LVM on the one hard disk that seemed to work okay.

I picked LVM because although I don't know much at all about LVM, I at least know enough that it would allow me to expand the root and home partitions once I get the 2nd hard drive working correctly. So now that I've gotten the 2nd disk working okay, I've created two physical volumes on the 2nd drive, one to expand the root partition and one to expand the home partition. So, my question is, can I expand the root an home partitions while they are mounted or should I boot into a live CD environment before I expand the partitions? If I could expand them without booting into a different environment, that would be so great as I don't want to have to drive out to the office again before Monday. BTW, I am a new openSUSE user and an ex Ubuntu user. I loved the Ubuntu forums but had to switch because I do not agree with the direction that Ubuntu is taking.

Ubuntu :: 2 Separate Users Accessing Network Folder On 1 Computer

Aug 8, 2010

I've just added my wife as a seperate user on my desktop and have a question about shared network folders. So /etc/fstab mounts network folders from a second computer and until today I've mounted them to /home/David/NetworkData

This of course means that when my wife logs in she won't see them since they're not mounted to her home folder. So what folder should I use and what tricks so that we both have it visible and accessible in Places from the top menu?

Security :: Restricting Remote Users From Accessing Removable Media?

Mar 17, 2011

I run a system that users may log into either remotely or physically. Multiple users may be logged in simultaneously because of the remote access, but only one user can be physically logged in at a time.With the current setup, however, if the physical user inserts a flash drive (which the OS mounts automatically) then the remote users gain access to the removable media.

Ubuntu :: Multi Users Accessing A Remote Server On Local Network

Jul 24, 2010

I would like to experiment a "green" idea of virtual desktop where multiple users are served by a single powerful machine.

I have a server running 24/7. The monitor of this machine is turned off most of the time and the OS is on the login screen.

Other users, in the same local network, use less powerful machines, which could be a thin client or an old Pentium 3 machine. They access their accounts remotely and work with the GUI as if they were sitting in front of the server. Each user sees their own desktop (different themes, screen resolution, etc.). And of course it can happen that several users could log in at the same time.

The usage is modest: mostly web browsing and the usual default applications (office, wine, gimp, etc.). In particular no games or any demanding applications. The users want to use their desktop in graphical mode only.

Question: How do we call this way of using a server? Is it possible with Ubuntu? And how to implement it?

Software :: Ntfs Volumes Aren't Recognized By Windows

Apr 2, 2011

I've made 2 ntfs volumes by mkntfs. First one is a primary partition on usb hard drive and second is a logical partition on system hard drive. I used default cluster and sector sizes in mkntfs. Under Linux these partitions are mountable by ntfs-3g, readable and writable. But fdisk doesn't recognize their filesystem type. It recognizes that as "Linux". WinXP x64 also can't recognize filesystem type of these partitions. Why windows can't work with these partitions?

Fedora Networking :: Mapping Windows Users On Unix Users

Sep 29, 2010

Samba up and running on my pc. pc runs FC12 with kde. A laptop has win vista. The pc can access the shares on the laptop but the laptop has authentication issues to access the pc. Note that windows doesnt enforce authentication forincoming network connections.Using the system-config-samba util i tried to map a windows user to the unix user "feduser". The laptop (named LAPPY) has a user (lapuser) which has on windows no password.What should I tell samba config what the windows username should be? lapuser or LAPPYlapuser doesnt work because when accessing the pc via the laptop, the authentication fails. The only auth that is successful is when choosing the same winusername as the unix username.

Secondary, id like to setup the laptop so that the user doesnt have to provide a name and password, or at least not more then once in the lifetime of the laptop. Note that you cant provide an empty password to system-config-samba. How is that possible?

Strange but not really on issue imho:the samba - KDE control module(kcmshall4) (and the smb.conf) shows 2 shares: the homedirs and the data dir the samba server configurator (system-config-samba) shows only the datadir.

Debian :: LVM Setup With 3 Logical Volumes?

Nov 25, 2010

I have done a recent install of Debian squeeze on a laptop. I set up LVM with 3 LV's, one for the root filesystem, one for /home, and another for swap. I then used lvextend to increase the size of the LV's. This additional space is shown if I enter lvdisplay (shortened for clarity):

- Logical volume -
LV Name/dev/auriga/swap
LV Size4.66 GiB
- Logical volume -
LV Name/dev/auriga/root
LV Size15.97 GiB
- Logical volume -
LV Name/dev/auriga/home
LV Size169.01 GiB

However, if I use df, it still shows the previous size.
/dev/mapper/auriga-root 14G 8.0G 5.2G 61% /
/dev/sda1221M 16M 193M8% /boot
/dev/mapper/auriga-home 147G 421M 139G 1% /home

I have even tried restarting as well. I do not understand why df would still show that /home is 147GB, when I extended it to 169GB using lvextend. Similarly for the root, which was extended by 2GB from 14GB to 16GB.
