I currently run a Windows 7 Compaq laptop with an Athlon x2 and 4gig of DDR2. I want to either set up a dual-boot on my laptop, or make Linux the Primary with Windows running in something like a virtual box. I am very much into Android and I want to learn Linux as a result of that. So which Distro should be considered in a situation like this.
I am new to networking and trying to setup my own local area network using virtual box machines. I have installed BIND 9.7.3 using yum in Fedora (dns server) and created all necessary .conf and zone fil es. I am successfully able to resolve domain names on this host machine (dns server). for example dig @dns.domain.lan client1.domain.lan correctly resolves domain name.
I am in verse to test "Multicast Packet filtering".I want to setup Virtual Machines to be servers with bind option set to a multicast group address of 220.127.116.11.Then I want to configure the client VM, connecting to the multicast group address and setting the TTL as needed.
I've never even set up a virtual desktop on Windows so I'm not sure where to start. I noticed that there's a menu in Ubuntu to set this up, but I followed the instructions (can't remember what they were off hand) and it said that the computer was only accessible through a LAN. I want to leave the Ubuntu machine (my laptop) at home and be able to access it through my desktop (Win7) in college (long story but I don't think that matters). It's possible to do this, right? How would it be done? I understand that LogMeIn doesn't work with Linux, so I'm guessing I have to use Ubuntu's default virtual desktop program and a Windows program like TightVNC, but I'm not sure how to make the laptop accessible from something other than a local network.
I have 4 domains registered through godaddy. I have a dell poweredge box with one static IP hosted somewhere. I want the 4 domain to resolve to four different sites. I have already created 4 different sites in apache with four different aliases and has enabled it.
eg alias /a /var/www/a alias /b /var/www/b alias /c /var/www/c
I tried with godaddys forward with masking option. It works but I can't hide xx.xx.xx.xx/a in the links. Whats the best approach? One limitation is I cannot use the webhosts name servers. How do I set this up with name based virtual hosting? Do I setup a DNS server in the box?
I do have a dns host name for my box which is publicy accessible. Some my.ca.examplehost.net
I am setting up a virtual server on CentOS that I want to use as a VPN endpoint. How much resorce should I allocate to the virtual server ? I'm not expecting it to do anything else other than host a small VPN, traffic will be medium / light. I'm tempted to give it minimum ram and drive space.
I want to setup some virtual machines that will use the same architecture and debian-version as my host-machine. I have started to setup VMs with a netinstall-image and now want to add more software using apt-get. As most of the software I will use is already installed on my host-machine I wonder if there is any way to configure apt in such a way that it will not download packages from the internet, but will use the packages from my host-machine to save network-traffic. Is there a good may to populate VMs using the debs from the host-machine.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04, 64-bit. I am trying to set up a virtual machine on it using vmbuilder. As I understand, I need to set up bridging. If I set up br0, then I cannot get out of the machine. Even a ping to 192.168.1.1 (my gateway) comes back as network unreachable. If I comment out #auto br0, then I can get out (on eth0), but i get an error from libvirt. My /etc/network/interfaces file (eth0 networking works, but libvirt does not):
#auto eth0 #iface eth0 inet dhcp auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.154 netmask 255.255.255.0
I have servera.domain.internal which has port 80 forwarded to the web as example.com. I have serverb.domain.internal which I want to forward on port 80 as subdomain.example.com. How to Show Apache server behind an apache server? How do I setup the virtual host on the internet exposed server? This is ubuntu 8.04
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 server as a guest on a Windows 7 host using VirtualBox. I've set the VirtualBox configuration to use a Bridged network connection so that I can access the internet through the Ubuntu guest and to access the Ubuntu apache server through my Windows host.This is all running on my laptop which connects to various routers using dhcp (some ip addresses start with 198. while others start with 10.) What I need is a single static ip address (or hostname/url) to setup my cms (drupal).how I can accomplish this given the varying routers the laptop connects to?
I now have 2 desktops running debian. I have virtual servers running in desktop 1, and I am hosting my photos using Gallery2. I have copied Gallery2 and the mysql over to desktop 2. I have entered port forward to desktop 1 using port 80 (using my router), and desktop 2 using port 1000. I can only access Gallery2 in desktop1. If I tried to access Gallery2 in desktop 2, I got re-directed to desktop1.
1. Are home routers capable of port forward to more than one computers in a home network behind the firewall of the router? It is Belkin N+ router.
2. Can multiple virtual servers be setup in 2 desktops?
is it possible to setup a DHCP server using the loopback or a virtual interface? I installed Sun VirtualBox on my fedora system and want to try and kickstart them from within the same box on a virtual network. Is this possible and has anyone done it? I only have a single NIC in the box and it is on my public network.
But when I try to check for syntax errors tells me SSLRequire not allowed here I do not want to add SSLRequire on the main httpd.conf because I only want it for one virtual host. The rest of the virtual hosts do not need it.
1) My Internet connection is COMCAST with a router box and one public IP address.2) My web server is Apache using 10.1.10.200 as its address.3) Now I want to add another host name (www.myhealth.com) on my server. I did DNS forwardin (with Godaddy) to my COMCAST static IP address.4) I also added (in my httpd.conf) a block for virtual hosting
I would like to configure and SAN disk. But I do not have a physical SAN disk. Is it possible to create and configure a Virtual SAN disk and work on it with virtual machines?I have around 400GB of space in my Laptop.
I'm trying to setup and configure a server entirely with text only run mode 3 on a virtual machine so I can redo my current live server. I'm now trying to set up the firewall of the system using iptables. I've read up on it and came up with the following:
-clear all rules #iptables -F -set default policy rules #iptables --policy INPUT DROP #iptables --policy FORWARD DROP
Everything above worked for me but just out of interest I looked at my live server which was configured using a GUI. I ran iptables-save and it was pretty much the same but its port open lines read like this:
#iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
so finally my question is do I really need the "-m state --state NEW"? Wouldn't having that drop established connections on those ports? I'm just confused as to what exactly the NEW state is doing and would it make a difference if I didn't include it.
I have a Slicehost VPS and I'm trying to set up PPTPD on it. I only have one IP address (the public IP of the box). All the PPTPD howto's I've seen rely on assigning remote clients IPs from the local subnet (e.g. the PPTD server's local IP is 192.168.0.20, and remote IPs are taken from a pool of 192.168.0.30-40).
However I don't think I can do that as I only have the one IP address on Slicehost's network - that public IP (and all other IPs in the segment are public). So what I really want to do is to be able to create a private LAN segment or virtual network adapter and have VPN clients assigned addresses in that segment, then routed out onto the Internet effectively using the PPTPD box as a router. I am using Ubuntu Hardy (LTS).
I've been learning linux for a while now with half an eye on making a career out of it in future. One sizeable gap in my knowledge at the moment is networking. Is it feasible/desirable to set up a network of virtual machines to use as an environment to learn networking? My budget is non-existent so I was hoping to be able to get a basic understanding of the principles from installing a few desktops, a virtual gateway etc on VMware workstation on my laptop, and doing a lot of reading online.
Is this feasible, or will I just end up learning about virtual networks instead of real ones? Also how much power would be required, because my 3GB RAM lappy has just gone bang and all I have now is a (new) 1GB RAM lappy.
while trying to set up Xen Virtual Nodes we encountered one issue with the network (which is why it is posted here On the DomU the interface is provided by a bonding -bond0- of three NICS. Now the Xen network script a) does not take this bonding b) destroyes even this bonding From a number of posts I assume I have to configure this by hand, correct? Is there an instruction how to do this? Simply create a bridge on top of bond0??
I've been all afternoon trying to install Ubuntu Lucid on my fakeRAID 0 configured (2) HDDs and am unable to set GRUB up. The fake RAID setup is provided by Intel Matrix Storage Manager, it is correctly enabled and the BIOS is also correctly set up -- in fact, I've managed to install Windows 7 with no significant hitch. After struggling with partioning the drives (had to follow advice I found on a very helpful guide online ), creating the filesystems AND getting Ubuntu's installer to actually do what it is supposed to do, I now cannot seem to set GRUB up. My system, as it stands, is unbootable at all; via live CD only.
This is how the RAID0 dev is partitioned: Code: # fdisk -l /dev/mapper/isw_ecdeiihbfi_Volume0 Disk /dev/mapper/isw_ecdeiihbfi_Volume0: 1000.2 GB, 1000210694144 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121602 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 131072 bytes / 262144 bytes Disk identifier: 0x6634b2b5 .....
apache virtual host to limit the concurrent connections of virtual hosts? Taking into account the host of each virtual user's home directory can also have more than one subdirectory, which should be restricted to a subdirectory. Is beyond the control of the operation of these sites in a subdirectory. Best local restrictions or limitations to the overall situation.
I have spent considerable hours searching forums and googling. I have yet to find out what "lm-sensors acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1:" is actually looking at. I have an Abit IP35 motherboard with Ubuntu 9.04 installed.
Here is the output from sensors:
Virtual Device Temp 1 keeps going up to 121 degrees and the computer shuts down. None of the others overheat. Also, my bios does not show my voltages to be set like it lists above. The bios in the motherboard is the latest from Abit.
