Ubuntu :: Can't Access SSH Remotely But Can Locally

Oct 10, 2010

I've got an SSH server setup on my box which is running locally fine. I can connect to it through my local laptop but when I try to connect through the internet either via my IP or using the DynamicDNS I have setup both get an operation timed out message.I've got firestarter running with an inbound policy to allow connections from any host to port 22. I've also gone into my Netgear router and selected to forward any inbound connections to port 22 to the IP of the box that's got the SSH server on it.

Even with all this the connection just isn't being made. I've also tried temporarily setting the DMZ option on the router to forward all inbound connections to the IP of the Ubuntu box but still get the same Operation time out. Is there any other options that wouldn't allow remote connections via SSH? Or am I missing something hugely obvious here? Maybe it's possible to connect to SSH via a different port or something?I'm running Ubuntu 10.4 and have installed openssh-server via Synaptic. Would be great to get this working so I can use it as a tunnel from work and access the VNC, which I've been told should be done via SSH anyway.

Server :: Vsftpd: Can Connect Remotely But Not Locally?

Jan 31, 2011

I'm running vsftpd-2.2.2 on Slackware 13.1 and I'm behind a NAT with a dynamic IP. I'm using pasv_address, which makes it necessary to have a crontab that checks whether my IP has changed, and if it has, edits the conf and restarts vsfptd. It's hackish but it works. I have also enabled FTPES on the same port that normal FTP runs. I have allowed only the 5001:5003 ports and I am aware that the recommented is 50 ports. However I never had an issue with the transfers since I'm the only user and have at maximum two simultaneous transfers.

I can connect remotely with FTP and FTPES with every client I tried but I'm having issues locally. FileZilla refuses to connect on FTP and FTPES. WinSCP can connect on FTP but not FTPES. Issues are gone if I enable pasv_promiscuous, which the manpage strongly recommends not to use unless "you know what you're doing". I don't. Why is this happening? And, can I fix the local connections without resorting to pasv_promiscuous?

Here is my config and log files from a failed local attempt.

Networking :: Remotely Login To Remotely Display Data?

Jun 29, 2011

I'm not terribly new to Linux, but I am new to the forums, so hear me out! I am in the process of creating an electronic mapwall for our meteorology program, and have designed the computing system from scratch. I have two Linux Boxes, each with capabilities for 6 attached monitors...a total of 12 displays driven from two machines. My intention is to have one machine be the has a touchpanel control. The inputs to the touchpanel will then trigger events for the both the master and the slave machine to display. Each of them has a specific IP address (DNS entry), and are not on a subnet. there a way to remotely login to the slave machine and have it display on it's OWN monitors? The code is Java and which works on the master machine to animate directories of .gifs for each of the master's attached monitors. I will most likely have Java execute shell commands for the remote login (ssh), but I believe the answer lies somewhere in the X-configuration. Do I have the machines in an adverse configuration (creation of a subnet would be better)? Lots of questions...lots of desire...few answers!

General :: Program That Can Download Mail From A Server And Deliver Copies Locally?

Aug 31, 2011

Is there an open source application that can download e-mails from a generic POP mail server, keep a copy of the mails locally and then deliver copies to multiple accounts on a LAN? I have a friend who uses a group e-mail account, and more than one person is always hooked onto that account. The problem is they cannot leave e-mail on the server, as it eats out their webhosting space, but if someone downloads a message in Outlook, the other users do not see that message.

General :: Installing A Library Locally In Home Directory But Program Doesn't Recognize It

Aug 18, 2011

I am installing a program on a server as a non-root user. Specifically it is tmux 1.5, but this should apply broadly to all locally installed program in my opinion (I mention the program name in case this problem ends up not being my own error).

The program requires me to install some dependent libraries (e.g. libevent and ncurses). So, I installed them both locally since I do not have root access

cd $HOME/library/installation/folder
./configure --prefix=$DIR
#... make ... make install


Ok, so this installs the program without problems into $HOME/local/bin, but if I run the executable: $HOME/local/bin/tmux , I get the following error:

tmux: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

It would seem to me that the program cannot find the desired libraries, but the file does indeed exist in $HOME/local/lib as specified in the configure options. I am wondering how I can get the program to recognize the installed library in order to run. I tried putting symbolic links in $HOME/lib, $HOME/bin, and $HOME/local/bin, but none of these worked.

I'm having issues with my SSH server.The server is running on a Slackware 13.37 machine, using the default SSH server software, which I believe is OpenSSH.On my Windows machine, I've tried connecting to my Slackware machine but can only do so using the external IP, not the LAN IP, instead I get a "Connection Refused" error using PuTTy. I've forwarded port 22 for both UDP and TCP packets to my Slackware machine.I don't really know what information you need so just ask me and I'll respond to the best of my abilities.

Ubuntu :: Run A Program Installed On A Remote PC Locally?

Feb 11, 2010

Is it possible to run a program installed on a remote Ubuntu PC on the local PC? What I'm talking about is different from simply sending the GUI over the network (like X tunelling). I want the program to use the processor of the local machine. Is this possible?
(Here's an example. PC 1 has a fast processor. PC2 has gimp installed on it but has a slow processor. Can PC2 make GIMP run on PC1's processor over the network?)

Server :: Mounting Nfs Files Locally - RPC Error - Program Not Registered

Jan 21, 2010

First of all, in whether I have interpreted this correctly: [url]

Where we want all users to be able to restore backups. This involves nfs exporting and mounting the backup directory ON THE SAME MACHINE, no...?

I have been trying to fix this all day, and can't figure out why its not working.

All my /etc/fstab /etc/exports /etc/hosts.allow /etc/hosts.deny must be correct as the file mounts (after booting, but NOT ON booting) with:

All the necessary (I think) services are starting on boot:

On bootup I receive the error:


I have other filesystems mounted from another server which all mount fine. Its just this one.

Programming :: How To Run Program Remotely Using Custom Environment?

Jun 11, 2011

I am trying to to execute multiple programs on multiple remote machines. Each program needs to be run in a custom Environment that is not known at login time. Currently I am using ssh to connect and run the program.
My issue is that I'm not sure how setup all the Environment Variables that I need on the remote machine. I was able to write all the environment variables/values (NAME=VALUE) that I needed to a file and place on a shared file server (prog.environment). I thought the best way to approach this would be to write my own utility ( that would interpret the environment file and then execute the desired command.

I am connecting to remote Linux PCs via ssh, to update software and do other tasks. I want to send a notification to the remote PCs screen (eg, "Do not run program X, it is being updated now"), so the users do know what is happening.

Is there a reverse way for ssh -X host so I can connect to a remote Linux machine and run notify-send and it appears on the other display?

General :: Apache Works Locally But Not Globally?

Here is the rub: works beautifully, showing me the index page at /var/www [URL] (my dyndns) or (my current IP address) doesn't work.ssh works well globally, i.e. ssh -l myname [URL] works. pinging [URL] works without a problem. Ports 22, 80 and 443 are open on my router (checked my router's settings).I use ubuntu 10.4. Is it an iptables problem, as in ? But I couldn't figure out the iptables manpage.

I can't reach my website via http. I'm not sure but I think I just need to unblock port 80. But I can't find where a firewall has even been installed on my machine. ufw status returns inactive. sudo aptitude search firewall shows nothing installed.

Nslookup returns the correct IP. Pinging works.

But typing in the domain name or IP through the web browser just results in a "Network Timeout...Taking too long to respond."

Wget just hangs looking for

General :: Capturing Remote Output Locally In Mac Terminal?

Jun 2, 2011

I want local programmatic access to ssh output in Mac Terminal. First, I tried redirecting the output of each command to a file. The file was perfect, but of course it was on the remote server, and an sftp for each command output seemed a little.. Next, I tried to Applescript Terminal, but it only gives access to the currently visible text in a tab (i.e. if half the output has already scrolled out of sight, it doesn't get returned - useless).

Last, I tried piping ssh to tee (e.g. ssh user@host | tee output.txt). This almost worked. I have the output in a local file, but there are a lot of unwanted characters mixed in. For example, every time I hit backspace, there's a ^H in the file. There's also text like "[0m[K" which is harder to get rid of.

cp, tar, clobber?
