General :: Get Windows To See Host Names And Vice Versa?

Sep 17, 2011

I have Windows and Linux machines on the same subnet. My router configuration correctly tells me both their machine names, and their IP addresses. However, when I try and ping a Linux machine from a Windows machine, or ping a Windows machine from a Linux machine, I need to use IP addresses rather than names. If I'm pinging a Windows machine from a Windows machine, or a Linux machine from a Linux machine, the machine name correctly resolves without any hosts file entries. Why is this?

I would have thought my router (D-Link DIR-655) would act as a DNS server itself. I see it has an option called "Enable DNS Relay", but from what I've read this won't help me. If it's relevant, the DIR-655 is used for internal traffic, with my ISP's Netgear DGN1000 used as a gateway to the Internet. It's on a different subnet though, and all my machines connect to my DIR-655, not the DGN1000. What do I need to do to have host names automatically resolved within my subnet regardless of the operating system that they're running?

Hardware :: Changing From 24-bit Depth To 16-bit - And Vice Versa - On The Fly?

May 1, 2011

I have an Nvidia GF 9600GT video card, and am running the proprietary drivers. The video card supports both 24-bit and 16-bit colour depth, and works with whichever I set up in xorg.conf as a DefaultDepth value.

However, I would like to switch the bit-depth "on the fly", i.e. without restarting X, just like I'm able to change the screen resolution (e.g. with xrandr). Is this possible? If so, how, and if not, why?

Ubuntu Networking :: Accessing Windows Machine And Vice Versa?

Oct 11, 2010

I had a look through a tutorial video showing how to set up Samba, and the end result was the only shared file/folder showed up on Windows. I want a direct access to all the files and folders like you can do from Windows to Windows, by signing in the user account from another system. And likewise I want access to all Ubuntu files and folders of a user account through Windows.

how if it's possible with or without Samba.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Windows 7 Shares On 10.10, But Can Do Vice Versa?

Dec 7, 2010

Ok this is a really weird issue because of the way it played it out. I have been researching it off and on for weeks now trying to figure it out and have come up with nothing. Basically when I first installed Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) I was able to access the shared files on my Windows 7 (64 bit) computer perfectly once I changed the domain name in Samba. However I wasn't able to access my Ubuntu shares from Windows 7. After researching for a while to figure that out, I found this:[URL]... Boom! Instantly I could access my Ubuntu shares without a problem from Windows 7.

However after I did this something happened where I could no longer access Windows 7 files from Ubuntu. Unfortunately I am not sure if the change happened immediately or some time later. When I go Places > Network I see the name of my Ubuntu computer (Living-Room) and my Windows computer (Nick-PC) as well as a folder called "Windows Network." When I open Nick-PC it brings up a dialog box saying a password is required. There are three text entry fields and a couple option:

Username: Nick
Domain: NRAU
Password: [not filled in]
_ Forget password immediately
_ Remember password until you logout
_ Remember password forever

The password field has to be filled in and I have tried every option. Each time it thinks for a second and then just pops the same dialog box again.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Write To Shared Folder From XP To Vice Versa?

Aug 13, 2011

The title says it all: I have two folders which I share in Ubuntu (10.10), one of them is "public", so I set it to allow guests to create/move/delete files in the folder. Then there is my mother's PC running Windows XP Professional (also one shared folder with write access). When I was using Windows 7, I could create/delete/edit files on my mother's shared folder but now, using Ubuntu, I can only read from it. Same with the shared folder in Ubuntu, I can only read it from XP but not write to it.

Networking :: Route All Traffic Received By An Interface To Another And Vice Versa?

Mar 2, 2011

The task I am trying to complete is the virtualization of an IPv6 router created using two fedora machines. Here is the physical setup I have now...

PC1:eth0 <------> network
PC1:eth1 <------> PC2:eth0
PC1:eth2 <------> PC2:eth1

PC1 runs radvd to provide router advertisements to the network and a DHCPv6 server for stateful addresses.Each interface is configured on a separate subnet. PC2 runs a DNS server on eth0. PC2:eth1 is used as an IPv6 client for testing purposes. The connections from PC1 to PC2 are just crossover cables.I've created virtual machines of both PCs and have created 4 virtual adapters on the host machine for each of the local-only interfaces.Now I have this:

PC1:eth0 = HOST eth0
PC1:eth1 = HOST vboxnet0
PC1:eth2 = HOST vboxnet1

Programming :: Convert A Given Date To Epoch Time And Vice Versa?

Jan 5, 2011

I'm developing a C++ application which is run on linux. I need to calculate epoch time for a given date and vice versa. (no of seconds elapsed since 1979-01-01) I used the following two methods.I need to convert the given date to epoch time and again convert that epoch time to the corresponding date.But the following methods doesn't give me the correct answer. Method to calculate the epoch time:


time_t HistoryCache::ConvertTimeToEpoc(const char* _zTime,const char* _zFormat)
struct tm tmTime;
strptime(_zTime,_zFormat, &tmTime);


My problem is this. Lets think that the value I get as epoch time for the 2010-01-05:000000 is 1262649600. (lTime value) Then I use the same value (1262649600) as a input to the GetTimeStamp method, I didnt get the dateString as 2010-01-05:000000. The date is changed by one day.

OpenSUSE Network :: Access Shared Folder From Guest OS And Vice Versa?

Dec 3, 2010

I'm a Windows person and will soon be tasked with UNIX/LINUX projects. I'm trying to learn as much as possible in a very short period of time. I'm very familiar with VMPlayer and VirtualBox. Recently I installed OpenSUSE 11.3 as a guest OS on VMPlayer (bridged network). The host is WinXP. I have also enabled shared folder to the host @ CRepositoryInstalls. Question - How do I access the shared folder from OpenSUSE (the guest OS) and vice-versa?

Ubuntu Networking :: Files Created In Samba Are Locked From Nfs & Vice/versa

Mar 2, 2010

I have just recently setup our network with an Ubuntu server which is being accessed by one Ubuntu workstation with nfs, & one XP workstation with Samba. Following instructions from the web, I set permissions like this:

sudo chmod 777 /media/Data sudo chown -R curley:curley /media/Data The problem is that files created in Samba are locked from nfs & vice/versa. I am assuming I need to add the nfs network share to the Curley group or use something more global than curley to make this work?

Samba is working ok from Ubuntu when browsing through Nautilus, but there is no access to shares when doing things like uploading or downloading files to the web (the "save file" window only shows local folders). So I guess I wouldn't mind just using Samba if I could map a folder in Samba to solve that problem.

Ubuntu Servers :: Auto Copy Folders To Windows And Vice Versa?

Apr 6, 2010

1. I need a script(like a scheduled cron job) which should perform Automatic copy (backup) of a directory from ubuntu server to windows and vice versa....

i tried every thing like samba mounting,ftp,etc..with samba its possible to map the network drive of an ubuntu directory in windows..but if the ubuntu server is not available then i cant access the network share..

Exactly this situation is happening for me while backing up tmp directory of ubuntu server ...

so in this case i need a permanent backup of tmp directory of ubuntu server in windows rather than a network share.

2. Also any ideas or scripts regarding automatic ftp (while doing a backup) from ubuntu server to windows... which can easily solve the above issue...

Ubuntu Servers :: Unix-to-samba Password Sync (and Vice Versa)?

Jul 28, 2010

I'd like for the server (10.04) to keep samba passwords and unix passwords "in sync"; i.e. when a user changes his unix password (via passwd), his Samba password is automatically changed to match the unix password. Similarly, when a user changes his samba password (via smbpasswd), then his unix password is changed to match. smb.conf seems to make provision for this; following are the applicable entries from my smb.conf:

obey pam restrictions = Yes
pam password change = Yes

CentOS 5 :: Accessing Windows Desktop And Drives From Centos And Vice Versa?

Oct 3, 2009

i find this is an issue which might be tiresome for everyone except for those experts. Esp. for the computers which are dual booting(both windows xp and centos installed in the same computer), that when we are in CentOS we need to switch onto windows immediately. and vice versa. i see this is possible only by shutting down the centos/windows and then restarting onto the other OS.

Can anyone tell me the the solution to work simultaneously both xp and centos without the need of shutting down and restarting There maybe or may not be the solution...but i find the pleasure to know if there is for example, remote desktop connection in windows xp, is there any solution, we can work on windows via centos or vice versa ( in the same machine),
