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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Accessing Windows Network Share Folders

Feb 16, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 since 2-3 weeks. First I tried live CD and the OS seems to be very good. So i installed it on my laptop.So far i had no problems until I tried to access the shared network folders of my Server running on MS Windows Vista and another trial PC running WindowsXP. I'm trying to solve this since 2-3 days, I haven't found a solution.1st of all my network works fine. All computers can ping each other and as the laptop had Windows XP installed the server was accessable.1st I installed the SMB4k tool with this program. I could see the computer names, but as soon as I select a Windows computer the tool searches and nothing happens.

I tried a lot of different variations of this command but in the end I receive this kind of error. I also tried to add -o user=username pass=password, nothing changed.After this I searched information about this error, some forum threads I googled are telling the SMB4K tool modifies the /etc/sudoers file and cause this error. So i tried to change it back with some kind of sudo chmod 0640 etc/sudoers but this won't work it seems I can not modify or edit thisw file using sudo.With the pyNeighbourhood tool I could only see my Laptop but not the Windows PCs.At the end I will install Linux systems on all of my PCs, but only if all my tests will pass .

Debian :: Restrict FTP Users To Home Folders (chroot)?

Feb 11, 2010

I have a debian-based ftp server running that I have created a few user accounts on. I will have clients uploading files to the server via ftp soon, and I need a way to restrict their access to only their home folders. I am not familiar with chroot, but from what I read, it can be used to restrict a user to their home folder, and that sounds perfect. How can I do this?

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.

Ubuntu :: Accessing Permission Locked Folders Through Livecd?

Dec 6, 2010

My spare laptop refuses to load into the OS (it's running 10.10) or even give me a log-in screen - it sits there with a blinking cursor in the corner of a black screen. It's a 7 year-old laptop I mainly use as a mediacenter, which means I keep very little on it so I figured I'd just do a complete reinstall and move on.

So I threw in a livecd to grab the one folder I needed before I was going to wipe the drive, but apparently at some point this folder got permission locked, and it won't let me open it or copy it to an external through the livecd. Is there any way I can get at this folder?

Software :: Accessing IMAP Folders Using Mutt With Lavabit?

Jul 1, 2010

I'm having some issues accessing any folders besides INBOX on the lavabit IMAP server using mutt. I'm not sure if it's something I'm doing wrong specifically or if lavabit just has some funky folder setup and I don't know how to use it. here's the basic server info, though I don't think that'll do much good for my issue (more specifically: I can log in, send messages and read my inbox, but not use other folders).

Here's my .muttrc:

set realname= '<REAL NAME>'
set from= <USER>
set imap_user= [user]

Ubuntu Security :: Accessing NTFS-encrypted Files And Folders?

May 14, 2010

After trying Truecrypt, LUKS, and Ecryptfs I decided to try NTFS encryption. Now, on a dual boot computer from Ubuntu I can browse the encrypted folders but can not open the encrypted files. All attempts produce access denials yet the Unix file permissions appear to be "0777" (owner, group, and world readable-writable).

Is there someway to get Ubuntu's NTFS software to recognize and decrypt the encrypted files? Would a different NTFS package work such as NTFS-3g?

Ubuntu :: Linking Content Of Windows Folders To Folders

Mar 31, 2010

The Problem was I wanted to open my /home/Pictures folder and have it display the contents of the My Pictures folder in my windows partition. This way I could have ubuntu and xp using the same set of music files, picture files, etc. I was having a very hard time understanding how to get from here to there because I'm such a newbie. However I have discovered how to do it and I wanted to post it, in hopes it will make things easier for other newbies.This allows me to see every TYPE of document in /dev/sda8/Media (windows My Documents folder) without having to see any of the folders (My Music, My Pictures, etc).

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?

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.

Debian :: UFW Failing To Deny Incoming Pings

Feb 3, 2016

I'm unable to get the "Uncomplicated Firewall" (UFW) to deny incoming pings. I've set it to deny incoming. Yet when I ping it, it responds.I'm using Debian 8.2 jessie KDE fresh/clean install with all updates.Below is the terminal output from a simple test (I've added an extra line feed between the commands for clarity):On a Debian 8.2 computer -- I install UFW, enable it, check its status (deny incoming), and get the Ethernet address:

Code: Select allroot@Computer:/home/user# apt-get install ufw                                                                                                             
.... (long output -- no errors or warnings)
root@Computer:/home/user# ufw enable
Firewall is active and enabled on system startup


The Debian computer with UFW active is responding to the pings, when it should be ignoring them.Rebooting the Debian computer doesn't fix the problem.This setup is very simple. I'm using all UFW defaults.This is a new Debian 8.2 install (clean) with all updates.

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?

I am using Ubuntu 9.10 desktop. I set up my main user- admin and loaded the folders of files I would be working on and the relevant additional programs. Now, I would like to set up a second user so that someone else can use the computer with access to many of my files and folders, but not all, which would defeat having a second user. I have set sharing preferences for all of my folders. I have giving most rights to my second user. Yet the second user cannot even see ANY of my folders when they sign-in.
