Ubuntu Networking :: Error - Cannot Connect To Server - You Must Enter A Name For The Server

Apr 17, 2011

In Gnome Places->Connect To Server dialog, I am having problem using the Custom Location Service Type. I enter in the URI as



I get an pop up error message that says:


Cannot Connect To Server. You must enter a name for the server.

Which would be fine if there was actually a place for me to enter the name which there is not. What am I doing wrong. This is the first time I have tried using the Connect To Server dialog. Normally I just use a script I wrote to mount my share in a folder on my local drive as some programs cannot access the mounted network folder. In a browser all I have to do is:



I tried using Windows Shares, but that did not work either. It does work if I click on network and access the share that way, but some programs like firefox and a few others that I want to save a file to my network drive do not show the network unless the share is mounted in a folder. So, I wrote a script:


#mount ext storage drive
mount -t cifs // -o username="username",password="password" /mnt/files

This works and I can use this, but it would be handy if I could just use the Connect To Server dialog.

Ubuntu Servers :: Client Can't Connect To Mail Server / Get It To Work?

Nov 19, 2010

I followed this tutorial:
Minus the Quota for the mailboxes, since I don't really care about that. But I don't think that should cause any problems in the configuration.
The server is in my local network.

I tried to connect with Thunderbird and Kmail. Kmal brings up an error message eventually, saying something about a time-out.
Squirrelmail says code...

I searched everything & everywhere only to see that more people have that same error message come up with Squirrelmail. From my understanding some have fixed the issue but I couldn't actually find a solution to this.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Ubuntu Networking :: Server 9.10 Won't Connect Any More

Mar 22, 2010

I set up 9.10 as a file server at my house, connected through the router via LAN. I had everything working, using it as a Samba file server. I moved to to my college apartment and I am now having troubles... I changed the network information in /etc/networking/interfaces to what it should be (or at least I thought so...)

I can ping myself, but nothing else. Also, on my router configuration page, the server is coming up as a connected device with the correct IP address that I set it to.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To NX Server

Oct 19, 2010

I just loaded NX Server, following the instructions from NoMachine. When I try to login from a client I get "Authentication Failed for User My Username" I can use the same client to connect to another NX Server on my network so I know the client works. I'm not clear if I need to set up a user, or if I can just logging with the username & password from the host (which is what I'm trying).

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To Server Over WAN

Apr 25, 2011

Ok this may seem like a "USE SEARCH FUNCTION" Topic at first, but trust me i have.

So my problem is the following:

I installed Ubuntu Sever 10.10 on a old PC of mine and installed all the required stuff for a webserver (apache, sql, php, ftp, ssh, etc)

Our network system is one of these stupid kinds, it's a brigded connection to the ISP so every computer on our LAN gets its IP directly from the ISP and there is no local IP addresses (port forwarding isn't needed)

This might be relevant but our LAN is build as follows.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< -----------Switch with WLAN ------- My laptop (WLAN)
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< |
Modem/router --------------
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< |<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<---- Windows 7 PC
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< -------------- Switch ----- |
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< |<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< --- Ubuntu Server
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< 2 other PCs

My Windows 7 PC can at all times connect to the server over ssh, ftp and http, no problems. But my laptop, and my friend from his place can only connect to the server if I have recently connected with the Windows 7 PC.

If there is no connection for a while and i try to connect with laptop or from friends place the connection just times out...

Networking :: Connect To The 201 FTP Server From Inside?

Feb 23, 2011

I know this is a common problem, but i have a special case that troubles me and i can't find an answer anywhere. The facts are like this: I have a linux router. I have 2 FTP servers. One on port 21, one on port 201 (on the same internal IP). The FTP works great when connecting on both servers from the outside. My problem is when i'm trying to connect to the 201 FTP server from inside the network using the external ip.

I get this:
ftp> ls
200 Port command successful
150 Opening data channel for directory list.
And it stays like this forever.

Fedora Networking :: DNS Queries - Connect To A Ssh Server ?

Aug 28, 2011

How often are dns queries sent? Assume I want to connect to a ssh server, will I send one dns-query in order to do that or do I send multiple during my connection? What if I request web-pages, do I send a query only when I enter a site or will I send queries every time I visit a new page on that site?

I'm asking since I'm considering getting an account at (the standard account for $30/yr) and it comes with 600 000 queries per month (which is way more than I expect to get but knowing exactly what it means is always good).

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To Server Time Out Bug

Apr 16, 2010

I have a 64 bit machine that once makes a connection to a remote server, times out unless I am persistently doing some stuff on the computer. I have tried searching for a solution and have not found it yet I know it is a bug that other people have mentioned it at other places. This was not the case in previous versions of Ubuntu ( I am using 9.10). Having a persistent connection to remote server is something that is critical for my needs.

Ubuntu Networking :: 'Connect To Server' Through Proxy?

Aug 4, 2010

Is there a way to connect to a samba share on the other side of a dynamic ssh tunnel?I like to use ssh -D 8080 <host> to access the network on the other side of a ssh session. For applications with their own proxy settings it seem to work really nice.In this particular case I'd like to use the 'Connect to server' feature in Ubuntu to connect a samba share through the tunnel, but I can't figure out how to make only that connecton use proxy settings.If I enforce system wide proxy settings the ssh tunnel will die, so that is not an option.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To A VPN Server From The Terminal?

Apr 5, 2011

I'm trying to connect to a PPTP VPN service located in UK (I think) and everything seems to set to the right values. I've checked and double checked the gateway address, user name and password. But every time all I get is a brief message 'vpn connection XXXX failed'. Is there any way to know what is wrong? Is there any log file, or is it possible to connect to a VPN server from the terminal?
