Networking :: Configure A Server At Home On Ubuntu 10.04 ?

Jun 29, 2010

I try to configure a server at home on Ubuntu 10.04 (French Server)

I have 3 network :

eth1 for lan (IP FIX)
ppp0 for a vpn connection on an English Server (IP DHCP)
tun0 for openvpn i use it to connect to my French Server from Anywhere

I draw it here

My problem is when i activate my ppp0 connexion i can't connect tun0 because all port are redirect on ppp0 connexion (i can connect only when i'm on the LAN)

OF course i redirect the port of my IP Public to my French Server IP Private. If i don't activate the ppp0 connexion i can connect to my server with tun0 connexion from everywhere !

So i try do this redirection but it's not working and i don't no why ???

### Routing acces openvpn et vnc de la connexion ppp0 vers eth1
sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -j DNAT -i ppp0 -p udp --dport 1194 --to-destination

CentOS 5 Server :: Configure A Mail Server Over A Home Internet Connection?

Feb 12, 2009

I have one server at home, connected through a router that gives me a static IP: - My PC192.168.1.3 - CentOS serverI enabled the port 80 into router forwarding system and I can connect properly to CentOS server, using the IP my internet provider gives me. My router automatically forwards a changed IP to my account so I can also access the server through a domain name (I pay to have it linked to one of my domains).My next step is to configure the mail server (dovecot) , so I can send emails from my local server( was wondering if anyone has any tutorial links or tips to have the mail server configured through a home internet provider + home router.

General :: Home Server - Configure Fedora 15 To Allow Access Via Port 80 From Other Computers

Aug 6, 2011

I am trying to make my home server accessible to the whole web. I have installed Nginx on my Fedora 15 64-bit Linux machine, and it works with localhost but it doesn't work online or allow other computers on the network to access it via the IP address. It keeps coming back with: Could not connect

I have port forwarding. I have even tried different ports but they all seem to be blocked. What could be wrong? I have a netgear router.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ssh Into Home Server?

Jan 7, 2010

I can ssh into my home server via command line, from the terminal application of Ubuntu 9.10, but not from the Places -> Connect to Server... GUI tool.

The latter produces an error message box with two lines. The first reads "Cannot display location sftp://gabi@my_server_ip" and the second reads "Error reading from unix: Input/output error".

In my old Ubuntu 9.04, both the command line ssh and the "Connect to Server..." GUI way worked fine. The latter had the advantage that my server folders showed up in Nautilus. I liked that.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Server From Home IP

Feb 6, 2011

I just set up an old PC as an Ubuntu Server. I've got it all connected, and set up the way I want's the problem I can't access my server as long as I'm attemting to access it from my home IP. I can ssh and ping it from both my phone on 3g and another (non-local) server I have SSH access to. Because of how our apartment is set up, each bedroom has it's own separate ethernet connection. The one in the room next to mine goes unused so I set up my server on it. My ISP is Charter, if that matters.

Ubuntu Networking :: Configure Wireless PCI NIC In 10.10 Server?

Nov 12, 2010

I've installed 10.10 server edition on a box I just want to use for file storage/backup, uPnP server, etc. The area I need to put the box doesn't have ethernet as an option so I'm trying to get this wireless NIC configured. It's a Buffalotech WLI2-PCI-G54S which runs the Broadcom 4306 chipset. I've managed to get the drivers for the card installed via the instructions here: [URL]

The drivers are working properly as I can run

iwlist scan

and see all the wireless networks it detects. I found the info here: [URL] to complete the configuration, but I'm still unable to get it right. My wireless router is configured to use WPA2-PSK with AES. I could just try installing gnome and get the GUI network config, but would like to avoid that if possible.

Networking :: Use Old Laptop As Home Server?

May 11, 2011

I have got a fair idea on setting up a home server to be shared among other computers for data files...I just have a few doubts on the following

1. Can I disable the monitor for the laptop as it may consume unnecessary power if I intend to use it purely for network use.

2.Currently I connect to Net thru DHCP.. How do I use this while accessing from other computers (as it is going to be dynamic each time)

3.For Power saving what are the options? Should I put the server in Hibernate or switch off when not in use say during night ..If I switch it off , then I may have to power on the laptop physically each time right ? I want to eliminate physical operations in the laptop and control it purely from other network machines at the same time get maximum power savings as if it is on 24 hrs my electricity bill will go for a toss plus more importantly the heat may kill my ol laptop!

4.Are there any good software (win and linux)for managing the home server like being able to access the drive , reboot , switch off,transfer files , Run an application on the servr etc..?

Ubuntu Networking :: Configure 10.10 Server With A Secured Wireless Network?

Jan 13, 2011

how to configure an Ubuntu 10.10 server with a secured wireless network? I installed everything while it was wired, but I need to get it wireless. I downloaded the desktop to see if it could help me in configuring the wireless network, but it didn't help. how to configure wireless internet on an Ubuntu 10.10 Server in the terminal, which is preferred, or in the desktop.

When I type the command iwconfig, it shows eth1 being me wireless device. When I try and edit it, nothing changes! I don't know what I need to change other than the ESSID and the WEP key. I'm assuming I need to change the access point too, but it doesn't let me. Is there any specific order they must be changed in?

Networking :: Adding Ipv6 To Home Server?

Mar 3, 2011

I currently have a home server, running Gentoo, with IPv4 connectivity through Qwest.I feel that it is important that this server also be available through IPv6 (I'm aware that, after exhaustion, my end still might not get an address through DHCP).I currently use to provide me with a DNS entry mapping to my IPv4 address.I do not have any sort of tunnel set up yet for IPv6 traffic yet. The new domain name does not necessarily have to be the same [URL].I do not wish to spend any money on this.Is there some free service I can register for that would do both the tunneling and the DNS entry? Is there a service that can supply me with an IPv6 DNS entry, if I get a static IPv6 address with another tunnel broker, like Hurricane Electric?

Networking :: Configure To Use A Specific DHCP Server?

This is probably an odd request, but figured I'd ask in case someone knew. We have a lab that has the IP range ( The lab gateway/DHCP assigns an IP in the range of I want to set up my own DHCP server on a specific range, for example I create a new host fine, but since it's set for DHCP, it uses the DHCP server at Is there a way to force it to use a different DHCP server on the client side? I realize that I can work around this with exclusions on the DHCP server, or use iptables to deny DHCP requests to specific MACs, but wanted to know if there was an (easier?) way to configure the client to use the DHCP server instead of the server?

Ubuntu Networking :: Home File Server - Read / Write Compatibility

Jan 30, 2011

I've been a Xubuntu/Ubuntu/Lubuntu hobby user for about 18 months now. I started using Linux as a way to revive older computers provide a backup and expand my knowledge of computing. The command line was something new to me but as long as I can find detailed directions on how to do what I want I can usually manage. I set up a Samba server for my home shared network and now I'd like to make the shared drives of that server accessible from outside my network. Via ssh or ftp or some program of the like. I'd like to have it user name and password protected. Configurable user rights would be nice. (read/write/delete/etc) As well as novice user friendly.

My end goal is a server with read/write capability that I will be able to access from work or a friends house or anywhere with an Internet connection and my laptop. I understand about port forwarding and have done so with my home network behind an AT&T U-verse router/modem. I've researched openssh and some ftp setups but they seem like they can be difficult. Now for the questions. Is this task something that can be accomplished without a degree in computer networking? Is there a program(s) that would make this a simpler task? Is this more complex than its worth? How would I go about setting up such a thing?
