Debian :: Setting Up VPN Server On Windows Server

Apr 7, 2011

I need to grant windows client an access to fileserver. The easiest way to do it is how? Setting up VPN server on Windows server, what rules are going into iptables in linux machine then. Or setting up VPN server on Linux machine (which is the best option) and how the user gets to fileserver?

Debian :: Setting Up A Server On A Windows Network?

Aug 3, 2010

The office network has a machine we're using as a fileserver, which is running Windows Server 2003. There are several issues with this, but the main one is that the "Terminal Server License Server" was never installed or activated. I managed to do these things, but to continue requires retail keys which are long since lost. So the boss says we're going to make it into a linux server instead. And by we, he means me. A friend recommended Debian so my research starts here. i have a little experience running an ubuntu desktop at home, using the console quite a lot. And a little bit of experience messing with my own server. however, most of this is new territory for me.

The needs of the organisation:

1. We need a shared directory on the server which all valid accounts can access
2. We need a per-user directory on the server for each user, which only that user or root can access.
3. We need a per-user windows desktop, which only that user or root can access.

Networking :: Setting Up A VPN For Windows Clients To Reach Debian Server Over The Public Internet

Jan 30, 2010

I'm trying to give some windows users a permanent connection to a samba share behind a firewall over the public Internet. I know I can give them access with something like winscp (which they have done) but really I'd like to do it with a VPN so it seems seamless to the user. However I have no idea how to set up the server to support this and am finding the documentation a bit confusing. The samba share is on a Debian box and the firwewall is a Linksys WRT54GL.

Ubuntu Installation :: Setting Up PXE Server On Windows 7 / 10.04?

Dec 3, 2010

I got this laptop that's 3 years old. Previously, I installed Ubuntu 10.04 (32-bit) using a bootable CD. Occasionally, Ubuntu would freeze and I did not know of a way to safe-shutdown. Everytime it froze, I simply did a hard-shutdown. And there we go. This hard-shutdown damaged the OS. Anyway, I downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 (64-bit) and burned a CD. Magic! Laptop won't read the CD. Boot is far ahead, it's just not reading it at all! Looked around, found that setting up a PXE server is my last hope. The guides? They weren't nice to read. What I'm looking for is to set up a PXE server on the PC (running Windows 7 / Ubuntu 10.04 dual-boot) and boot from the PC through the PXE server. I have downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop AMD64

Ubuntu :: Setting Up Freenx As Server And Client On Windows?

Jan 14, 2010

I have been messing around with freenx to see if I can support my customer via remote desktop... I have installed the server on Ubuntu Karmic and the client on Windows 7. I love linux but need the windows computer for customer work and that is why I chose to install the client on windows. I setup the server the best I could and created custom keys which I then copied to windows and imported them to the freenx client. I am looking for security for my customer and that is why I chose custom keys... There are several issues to deal with but I want to just get started to see where it takes me. I added the test server computers ip address to the freenx client configuration and tried to connect to Ubuntu... I have left the port as 22 at the moment

Desktop setting on the client...I chose vnc which seems to be a good choice according to all the material I have been reading....Other settings I have left alone at the moment to see how things work.... All that said - I have the login window asking for information... I have the password asking for information....and I have the session wanting information....? Obviously I understand that login info can be set on the server and the password...but I haven't seen how to set up that? Of course I am testing the server from a client on my home network at the moment - but the customer has his own router as do I so those settings will need to be looked at as well.

Server :: Setting Up Windows-compatible Fileserver Using Ubuntu 9.10

Mar 15, 2010

I am somewhat of a newbie at *nix. I've asked some questions about Debian in the past, but I decided to just go ahead and start simple, with Ubuntu, then moving up once I've got the hang of things. So, I want to use Ubuntu 9.10 as a fileserver for my network, which consists of 3 Windows PCs and 1 Mac. I have a few ideas on where to go, Samba being my first package install, but I'm not too sure where to go from there. Could someone help me out? I love to RTFM, so if you'd point me kindly in those directions, I'll be glad to jump right on that too.

Ubuntu Servers :: Setting Up A Windows File Server W/ Samba On Fedora 11?

Mar 29, 2011

I'm trying to load a HP Proliant w/ Fedora 11 and setting up as a WFS using Samba. However, I'm a bit confused on how to do it. Right now I have 2 36.4GB drives in RAID 1+0 and 4 146.8GB drives in a RAID 5 config. I wanna use the smaller drive for the OS and the bigger drive for the storage. I've managed to load the OS fine, the problem is I can't figure out how to mount the 4 146.8GB drives as a single logical volume and set Samba to use it. Right now all the RAIDs are setup using the built-in Compaq Smart Array utility (or whatever it's called) that's built into the SCSI hardware or BIOS.

OpenSUSE Network :: Setting Up 11.3 To Access Printers On Windows Server 2003 Via Samba?

Sep 7, 2010

I'm trying to set my openSUSE desktop up to use the printers on my office network via Samba. I managed to get it working in 11.2 but 11.3 is giving me some trouble.I am able to access the printers and use them but I have to enter my network credentials each time I print. In 11.2 I was able to "save" my username/password and was not required to do this. Are there any Samba packages I need to add in addition to the basic ones? There seems to be a lack of documentation on this particular subject, most is concerning Windows clients printing on Linux print servers.

phpmyadmin so i can easily manipulat mySQL databases.

after reading [URL] I typed in #apt-get install phpmyadmin

it downloads a bunch of stuff and says it is installing it but when i do the next step in the instructions go to

http://192.168.0.100/phpmyadmin/

I get a 404 Not Found error.

Debian Configuration :: Setting Up Small Web Server With PHP And SQLite3

Apr 5, 2010

I'm trying to set up a small web server with php and sqlite support. I installed lighttpd, php5, php-sqlite3 and php5-sqlite3. Then, I enabled sqlite and pdo extensions in php.ini:
extension=pdo.so
extension=sqlite.so
extension=pdo_sqlite.so

However, when I try to open a SQLite3 database from php:
$database = new SQLiteDatabase($myDB, 666, $error);
I get the following exception:
SQLiteDatabase::__construct() [sqlitedatabase.--construct]: file is encrypted or is not a database

Some readings in the net make me think that my php settings are not compatible with SQLite3 databases. Is anyone successfully working with SQLite3 databases from PHP5 under Debian? Have you any recommendations? Should I rebuild php maybe?

Debian Configuration :: Setting Up A Server Network For A School?

Nov 26, 2010

I am putting together a server and computer lab at my school for Standardized testing, and am planning on using debian for it. But first, i must prove to the school board that this is a possible and viable option, so right now it is one pc with 1 gig ram (Going to be the server for this experiment), and two others with around 512 mb ram.the problem with all this is, the computers in the lab cannot have hard drives, as there is some sort of licencing issue. So I need to be able to have these two testing computers boot from the server's hard drive.

Debian Configuration :: Setting Up Home File Server?

Jan 3, 2011

I have 2 windows pc's in my home and an office computer that have my files strewn about. I wanted to have them all in one central location that keeps a backup copy, so i used an old machine to start building a file server. I installed debian 5.0 on the machine, command line interface only. I have gotten ssh working so that i can do all my work on the box from one of my windows pc's by logging in with putty.my current problem is how to easily use the box hard drive for storing my files in an easily accessible way. i'm still working on getting samba to work so that i could map the /home directory to a drive letter on my two home pc's, but i'd also like to access files from my work pc. Before i do that, though, i wanted to know if this is safe and secure to map a drive on a remote machine through the internet? Are there any other security concerns I need to be addressing by having this file server set up?

Networking :: Setting Up A VPN With OpenVPN On A Debian Lenny Server?

Sep 9, 2010

I'm setting up a VPN with openVPN on a debian lenny server. I successfully installed it in the server, then created the certificates and both client (winXP) and server config files. For the client I use openVPN gui. I tested the tunnel and everything went just fine. I even can ping the openVPN server from the XP client.But thats all. I can't ping any machine behind the openvpn server.Some facts that you may find useful to help me with this issue are:

- The openVPN server is not the default gateway of the LAN. The dg is a pfsense server
- I dont have iptables enabled (policy of all chains are ACCEPT).
- I have configured ip forwarding (echo "1" >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward)

[code]....

I have checked and all seems to be OK. I think that the problem is connected with routing the traffic from the vpn to my LAN but I don't know how to do that (besides the push route line in the server.conf).

Software :: Setting Up A Git Repository On My Debian/ubuntu Server?

May 29, 2011

I've worked with svn as a version control system. I like how it's possible to get context-sensitive svn commands within Eclipse via Subclipse or some other plugin. I know how to set it up both client-side and on an apache server.

Questions:

1) Does it require a centralized server and/or apache mod to host a master repository? I understand that git is distributed/decentralized but am a bit confused about what this means in practice. I did find this article describing how to host a git repository via http. Ideally, our central/master repository would be accessible via some kind of GUI git client as well as the command line.

2) Can anyone recommend a good PHP IDE / git client combination? I'm partial to Eclipse myself because it's free, i know it, and it has an eGit plug in which, although still in early development, appears to function mostly as expected.

3) Any additional comments/anecdotes/thoughts about how I might host a git repository and make it accessible only to my team of devs.

Server :: Setting Up Sendmail On A Blank RHEL 5.5 Server Setup

Jun 21, 2010

Having some issues setting up sendmail on a (basically) blank RHEL 5.5 server setup. My ultimate goal is to be able to automagically send logs / errors / notifications to ourselves from the server.

Our basic setup is a Win 2003 domain with exchange running on mail.domain.com.au.

I've edited the '/etc/mail/sendmail.mc' and added the :

Code:

line to it.

Also added the domain (domain.com.au) to the '/etc/mail/local-host-names' files

Also edited submit.mc and added

Code:

When I try and send a mail from root or a test user to one of the domain accounts, it seems to go fine, i.e no errors are reported but it never gets delivered.

From the mail logs:

Code:

So it seems to be sent to the queue no problems and when I check the queue :

Code:

Total requests: 0

Not nothing ever gets received. Am I missing something? I have read and read and read but dont seem to be getting any furthur.

So in the end this server doesn't need to do anything except be able to send mail from root to an external mail address.

CentOS 5 Server :: Setting Up CUPS (command Line) On New Server?

Mar 29, 2009

I was using Red Hat 7.3 forever and decided it was time for a change. I went to Fedora 10 but it was really buggy. CentOS 5.2 is VERY stable.Here is my problem.The server is command line only -- I tend to hate GUI"S.I setup Samba no problem disabling the ports needed through the firewall and that was straightforward.CUPS is a nightmare for me since CentOS locks down the cupsd.conf and then the firewall does its thing. I allowed port 631 through the firewall but then got lost on the cupsd.conf. It's been too long and the old redhat one won't work with CentOS (not surprising since it's a VERY old system) straight-forward CUPS tutorial for a command line interface. I just need it to be:

a) do this

b) do that
