Debian :: Remote Network Access To Single-user Console

Jul 11, 2010

When I start an upgrade or dist-upgrade from single-user mode, and walk away for a long time, I will have found that some packages insist on prompting for answers to questions midway through. That requires me to physically check the console periodically, and that becomes less practical for long upgrades.Is there a way for me to somehow remote into that console and answer any prompts that would popup? By "way" I mean not involving KVM switches or other hardware other than the LAN setup I have now (i.e., I am able to ssh into the machine being updated from another machine, but not when the machine is in single-user mode).

BTW, the reason I am using single-user mode is that, in the past, I have had problems with upgrading packages like GNOME when I am logged into the GNOME Desktop.

OpenSUSE Network :: Root User Has Access To Remote Folders/files Of Any User?

Jan 21, 2010

Prelude: OpenSUSE 11.2 (2.6.31.8-0.1-desktop), installed Novell client 2.0 SP2 (novell-client-2.0-sp2-sle11-i586.iso).

I found that if any usual user is logged into a NDS-tree, then _local_ root has full access to user's network shares, including the user's home directory located on remote Netware-server. Is it by design or
have I missed something? Nevertheless in windows local admin has no access to network resources mounted of any other user. If you runas shell (as admin) then admin in principle can't "see" network shares which were mounted (connected) by other users - they are accessible ("visible") per session.

Server :: Allow Access To Directory Only To Single User

Jun 30, 2010

I have a file server on my network. It is accessed mainly by linux machines throught NFS, but sometimes I need to access it from windows, and I managed to get Samba up and running with only one share with no password, which is what I want.My users have their "private" folders which are just chmodded 700, and under NFS it works fine, but on samba I get, of course, access denied.How can I configure samba so that it asks a password to access those directory? They can become separate shares, and have their own username and passwords (not the ones in /etc/passwd in the server), I don't care.

Debian Configuration :: Non Root User Unable To Access Network

Mar 28, 2011

I upgraded a Guruplug Display machine running Lenny to Squeeze. It's running Linux on a MicroSD device, running an ARM-cpu.

# uname -a

6.0.1

However, after rebooting, every non root user was unable to access anything related to the net.This means, DHCP failed to auto start, ntp is giving errors, etc

# ntpq -p
localhost: timed out, nothing received
***Request timed out

Fedora Hardware :: Give Remote User Access To Usb Scanner?

Sep 1, 2010

I've got a USB Epson Perfection1200 (usb-id: 04b8:0104) connected to my Fedora 13 x86_64 system. The scanner works fine for me, the console user. If someone logs in to the system via "ssh -X ..." and starts "xsane", xsane reports that no scanner is available.

Googling turns up countless recommendations, mostly identical, which pretty much say:

1. find usb device (lsusb)
2. find bus and dev IDs
3. chmod 666 /dev/bus/usb/BUSID/DEVID

this is a best a miserable hack. I would like to know how to adapt the permissions that hald uses when a usb device is connected. Does someone understand this and can explain it?

Networking :: Allow Remote Access To Server Running On User Account?

Jul 11, 2010

In the past, I've installed Internet services as daemons and as xinetd.d with no problems. Those approaches do not meet my needs. And, perhaps, nothing will.

- the service was converted from VB-6 to wxPython. It has a GUI which is accessed with either "remote desktop" or VNC.
- the wxPython service works on Windows and can be accessed from other hosts on my LAN
- the wxPython service works on CentOS and Fedora, but can only be accessed from within the server host. Even from other user-ids. But, I cannot get to it from other hosts.
- ipchains AKA firewall ports are marked for INPUT.
- The server host uses autologin to fire up a useid in group "user". I do not want it running as "root". the .bash_profile fires the service up.
- the service is heavily mult-threaded, and supports devices connected to serial ports asynchronously with the ephemeral port threads (all this works).

There are some programming solutions that I would rather not develop.
- a proxy service that runs under xinetd.d.
- separate the GUI code from the Internet and serial port code. Allocate a "control" port for remote GUI control. a'la SAMBA & SWAT

Is there any hope, that I can run it as is, by doing some network configuration stuff.

Debian :: Force Single User Mode On Sun Ultra 5

Apr 26, 2010

I have successfully installed Debian on a Sparc Ultra5, 270MHz SparcIIi CPU, 384MB RAM, 40GB HD. However, once Debian tries to load Gnome (right before the login screen) the screen goes blank, and so the machine becomes unusable. I booted of the NetInstall CD, into rescue mode, and executed a shell, but apparently there is currently a problem when running nano from a live CD, so I can not edit the xorg.conf file when I boot the live CD. So, I would like to just boot the install into single user mode, but I dont know how. Currently, when the Ultra5 is powered on, it tries to boot with command "boot", so I hit "Stop A". From there I type "boot Disk1" to boot Debian normally. To boot from a CD, I would type "boot cdrom" So any idea on how I can boot from Disk1 in Single User Mode?

My only other idea is to hook up another monitor I have which may be able to deal with whatever resolution Gnome is defaulting to. However, Id rather just boot into single user mode.

OpenSUSE Network :: Create A Remote (ONLY) User?

Jun 27, 2011

I want to create a user on my opensuse 11.4 computer, for the sole purpuse of using it to access network shared data (eg samba, nfs, etc). This user must be in the "Users" group, but it must NOT be able to login directly on the computer, i dont want him to show up on the GDM users list at logon, he must not be able to login to a terminal, etc.

How can i add a user like that? must he belong to a specific group?

Debian Configuration :: Exiting Run Level 1 (Single User Mode)?

Server :: Cannot Login To FTP (proftpd) With A Single User On Debian Squeeze?

Jul 19, 2011

So I've been trying to get a single user to login to an FTP site I've created using proftpd and I haven't had much luck. So check this out: this only applies to one user, I can "su" to the user account so I know the password is set, and I am even able to SSH into the box as this user. This totally eliminates a bad/incorrect password and the server IS accepting connections on port 21 because I can FTP as other users. I've ruled out the client because I tried locally and using a command promptWinders but still no luck. This is what I'm seeing in the logs when I attempt to connect using an FTP client.

::ffff:192.168.1.118 UNKNOWN proftpd [18/Jul/2011:15:57:44 -0700] "USER crownftp" 331 -

Ubuntu Networking :: 11.04 / Cisco VPN - Cannot Access Remote Network IPs

Jul 8, 2011

I have just installed Ubuntu 11.04 and the Cisco VPN client with :
apt-get install network-manager-vpnc

I have imported the PCF provided by my employer into the GUI. The group password also seems ok, when I login to the VPN server, I am provided with the "VPN Login message". (On Windoze, I get an Ok/Cancel popup with the same message). In Ubuntu, I don't get to click "Ok" but it looks like I'm connected properly. The /var/log/syslog file contains numerous static routes added, 30 or so. After the Login Message, I see the couple of line:

Jul 8 12:40:51 ubuntu02 vpnc[1613]: can't open pidfile /var/run/vpnc/pid for writing
Jul 8 12:40:52 ubuntu02 NetworkManager[630]: <info> VPN connection 'VPN to my network' (IP Config Get) complete.

I get an IP from the external network correctly as well:

tun0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr 00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00
inet addr:172.16.10.170 P-t-P:172.16.10.170 Mask:255.255.255.0

However, I cannot ping any of the machine on the remote network. None of the network services seems to be accessible. Why the machines on the VPN are not accessible?

OpenSUSE Network :: Boot For Remote Computer Access Involve RDP

Jan 21, 2011

I'm new to the principle of network boot and I was wondering if this is possible. Computer A runs openSUSE. Computer B is an older, slower computer. Computer A and computer B are connected using an Ethernet cable that supports two-way transport. Can I use network boot on computer B to use the OS on computer A remotely while computer A is being used too? Does it involve RDP? Will the remote user experience noticeable lags/delays? What do I need to install on computer A to make this happen?

Debian :: Retrieve Remote User

Jun 1, 2015

I have a server using ldap. I installed Debian with an Apache webserver with PHP and MySQL support.This server will be used for intranet so I want to know what the REMOTE_USER variables is.Looking at the phpinfo does not give any reference to the REMOTE_USER. REMOTE_ADDR is no problem but does not give me the user using the computer.I've installed libapache2-authenntlm-perl with apt-get and adjusted my /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default file with the following:

Code: Select all<Directory "/var/www/intranet">
    PerlAuthenHandler Apache2::AuthenNTLM
    AuthType ntlm,basic
    AuthName mycompany
    require valid-user
    PerlAddVar ntdomain "server.domain.be server"
    PerlSetVar defaultdomain server.domain.be
    PerlSetVar splitdomainprefix 1
</Directory>

where server is my servername and domain is my domainname.The problem after reloading apache2 is that I get the following message: This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required.When I delete the AuthType, AuthName and require line it loads the webpage but without the REMOTE_USER variable.

It is not ment to ask for a password or username, just to get the username used to log in in the Windowsenviroment that visits the webpage on this Debian.

I would like to share my desktop (from my personal computer) to access it in my work, which is outside the local network. But I'm not able to find the place where I do the settings of the share.In the last version of Debian (Lenny), in "System > Preferences > Remote Desktop" it was possible to configure the sharing (password and listening port). However, in the current stable version (Squeeze), this is no longer present.Does anyone know where these settings are, or maybe if it was deleted from this version?
