Networking :: Running Foxpro On Centos ( Server ) Via Winxp Client?
Jul 30, 2010
My office is on migrating to UNIX system. I am configuring Centos as our server including some program will be running on it. But one of the problem is we use foxpro for operating some program on server directly. I can run that program on Centos using DOSBox. My question is how can i run that program on winxp client that connected to network through samba to that program on server? so my plan is just give the shortcut and link it to server. I have tried to open it but not work.
Apologies if this was asked before -- I have googled the last bytes out of my Firefox but fail to find anything helpful. Here's my problem:I have a foomatic hpijs cups-driver for a HP Inkjet (Non-PS printer) installed. Printing from UNIX-hosts works. I have cups configured not to allow raw-printing (/etc/cups/mime.types: #application/octet-stream, /etc/cups/mime.convs: #application/octet-stream).I have now installed samba-printing, the cups PS-drivers plus the Windows PS-drivers are populated to /etc/samba/drivers/W32X86/ and get pushed to the WIN-Client.Problem is that when I print from a WINXP client, the printer outputs heaps of Postscript-text instead of my page.I have tried to debug this a bit but fail to find anything really useful. My observations so far:
- The samba-pushed HP_Photosmart_3300.ppd (in both /etc/samba/drivers/... and in the resulting dir on the WINXP client) reads: *cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-postscript 0 foomatic-rip"
My office uses a local Linux server running Red Hat 6.1 for an ancient text-based accounting program. The client computers (about 5 or so) run WinXP pro and use Tinyterm emulator to log in to the server. One of the client computers (we'll call it client1) had a user in Windows configured to do scheduled backups of the Linux server. The office worker for client1 was instructed to log in to xp as the backup user and leave the pc on all night and it would backup the linux server, then it would copy that backup to an external hard drive, attached to client1.
The c: hard drive on client1 died and no backups were available. I have restored the computer with a fresh xp install, but I have no idea what method was used to back the server up. I'm sure samba was used but I cannot find any documentation or instructions left behind by whoever set the system up. I have the ip address of the server and have restored tinyterm to be able to log in from client1. I also have access to the command line on the server. I just need help with being able to back the linux server up from a windows xp client.
i installed unix services for windows 3.5 on a windows xp pro box and it installed fine. I configured nfs on the debian box and exported the ip of the client computer and forwarded port 2049 correctly. I followed the instructions for setting up teh nfs client on windows. However whenever i go to tools->map network drive and type in the server-domain-name:/file-address it says it cannot connect?
I am trying to install openSUSE 11.4 as a virtual machine running on VMWare Server V1.0. VMWare Server is running under WinXP 32bit.
I configured the VM with the following settings:
10GB disk 512 MB Ram
The installation starts from the DVD after inserting the disk. OpenSUSE setup appears, i do not touch the default resolution 800x600. Every thing is looking good. After setting the language, the installation process continues. Then a problem with the screen/resolution/graphical adapter appears. After a while I cannot read anything from the setup screen, everything is unreadable. I remember I had those problems already with 11.3 but I did not follow this issue an took openSUSE 11.1 instead. With 11.1 I could follow the installation instruction till the end and I got a running system.
I am at a loss. I can not access my work remote desktop via the terminal server client on my wired box running Ubuntu 10.10. My wireless laptop is able to connect right away once I established the VPN connection. The VPN connection is established on both boxes with no problems.
When I tried the Terminal Server Client on my wired boxed, it says it can not establish a connection. Yet my wireless box gets connected immediately!
I check the /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf and the /etc/resolv.conf to see if there were any differences, but they are essentially the same. When I have the vpnc connection, they both recognize it and I am able to ping the IP address shown when I do a "ifconfig" on the terminal.
What can be the problem? Anything I need to configure on a wired computer versus a wireless one? What else can I check?
i have a centos 5.5 server running tomcat,oracle xe,apache etc..i would like to be able my windows machine to access this server by name, and not ip, for example have http://backserv:7080 for oracle xe web admin and so on..i know one way is DNS, but if i install oracle on a windows machine in peer-to-peer network, i can allready access with by it's name. o i'm guessing i should do something with samba, wins or something like that.never mind i got now for the REAL complex stuff of insalling web sphere 7 without user interface (need to look for a response file).
I'm carrying out a project for my university (CIT in Cork, Ireland) and I'm using CentOS running over WMware. I have a server and a client. The server has no GUI (command line UI) while the client has a UI. I need to install a Simple Forum Machine application and I'm told to FTP the files into the server. I figured out that the best option is to load the files in the client via the GUI and then ftp them in the server. How do I transfer the files from a the client t o the server using FTP? I'm totally new to Linux so the more details the better. Also I'm trying to mount a USB key on the server but have had no luck.
I am bit new to Linux and have setup caching-only name server with Centos 5.5. when i do dig server, it provide resolutions. but when i use the server IP as DNS on my windows client, it says, "connection refused" on the NSlookup output. (IP table didn't enable) My server Ip is 192.168.1.253 and bellow is the configuration of "/var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf"
I have installed XP on linux xen, when I mount a dvd or cdrom, it would mount on linux not windows! What should I do to mount it on windows? (I installed xp in virtual machine via an image file, so, whenever windows is poped on, the windows xp cd-rom is mounted with that image file), is there any way to mount it from hard?
My first time installing centos server and adding it to xp home network. I am new to setting up my own network in general. I have a home windows wired ethernet xp network (simple linxs router) with 2 xp boxes and one centos5 box all connected to the same router. I just set up the centos box running tomcat on port 8080. I need to do two very basic things at this point, but am not sure what I need to do:
What do I need to do so I can: 1. Connect in firefox on one of my xp boxes and call the tomcat server running on my centos box? 2. Be able to ftp to centos box from either of my xp boxes?
I'm trying to open up some ports to connect via vnc to a server running Centos 5.5. I've edited /etc/sysconfig/iptables everything *looks* fine, but I still can't seem to get access to the port I've opened (I added some newlines for clarity between commands):
I've just replaced my Windows XP for Ubuntu on my desktop computer and I'm now looking for a torrent client that has some useful features that I miss from uTorrent, such as: - Queuing torrents - Setting bandwidth priority for multiple files within a torrent - Auto-shutdown when finished - DHT - Bandwidth control
I've been using NX to login to a remote machine (using the free NoMachine NX client). I've been pretty happy with it, but I'd like the ability to run it as a separate desktop, rather than a window within my existing local desktop. I think I'd like to be able to start X Windows with only the NX client running, either in another virtual console (VC) in addition to my local desktop or perhaps sometimes as the only desktop running. My first thought was to go to another VC and start an empty X Server with only the NX client running with the command
Code: xinit /path/to/nxclient -- :1
That seemed to work, except that just as the remote desktop is about to appear the X server shuts down. It seems that the nxclient process spawns the child nxssh and then exits, and at that point X Windows closes because the command it was started with has ended. I assume there's a simple way to fix this by writing a script that will only terminate once all the child processes have terminated and calling that on the xinit command line, but I'm not sure how to do that.
I'm setting up a network for a school. The network has 11 client computers (windows xp) and a server (fedora 10) All I need to do is have a share for all the children to use. (this I did by adding each client to the workgroup specified on samba then I just map the drive). The issue turns out to be that I have over 300 users. The users don't always use the same computer therefore I need the users to be registered on all 11 clients. How can I do this? I have been searching and I've not gotten anywhere. How can I add the computers to a domain instead of a workgroup? What can I use?
I have a Nis server on Suse 11 which is configured using Yast and nis clients on Suse and CentOs .All clients which is on the Suse Os is working fine. But on CentOs , users couldn't login using nis username.I have mounted home directory using nfs in fstab . I can switch to nis users homedirectory only when i am root. But nis users could'nt login on reboot.' ypcat passwd username ' is showing the output . No selinux is enabled in the client .Is there is any problem with Suse server to Centos Client in nis ??
I am building a Terminal Server Client using debootstrap for work. I found a couple post that suggested that I can change my inittab configuration to not load login. However it is my understanding that inittab has been replaced by upstart. I would like to know how to modify upstart so that instead of the user seeing a login: prompt my script is automatically loaded (rrdesktop)(revisedrdesktop) and the user is brought off a live cd to my terminal server.
This will be a little long (having read Phil's 'how to ask questions' FAQ). I'm trying to get OpenVPN working between my CentOS server and some Windoze laptops running XP. There seems to be plenty of sample config files available, but to date, none of them have worked for me. Pulling out my trusty Wireshark, I've found some clues,
BACKGROUND: My local subnet (NAT'ed by my gateway router) is 192.168.52.x. My router has been configured with a conduit (port-forward) for port 1194 (the standard OpenVPN port), which points towards my CentOS server.The CentOS server is .52.112, and the supplicant is .52.110. I have tried the lient both inside and outside my local subnet, with no difference in events or outcomes.
I've tried to read many of the topics in this forum first and tried to find a solution to my problem, but can't find one.I'm testing CentOS 5.5, it's the first time I'm using a CentOS Linux release.I'm trying to configure the proxy "client side " on it and cannot find how to do it.On other Linux release I've used the ENV variable like "http_proxy" or "HTTP_PROXY" etc etc.This time, I don't know why but it doesn't work.I've put the name and @ip of the proxy in /etc/hosts and tried different version upper/lowercase of "http_proxy" "HTTP_proxy" "ftp_pr.." but it doesn't work.If I configure manually Firefox and puting the name or @ip of the proxy we have on our network, it works.But if I try to use ENV variable it doesn't work...
I sshed to a server a week ago, then ran *screen* and created a few windows in my screen session. I then ran a few programs on those screens. All the programs were running in the background (I run them with &). I did not close or detach from the screen sessions. So I was still connected to those screen sessions from my client machine.
Then, this morning I find my client machine rebooted. When I do screen -ls I find there are no screens available to reattach to. But that is not the worst part. The strange thing is that all my processes (which were running on the server) have disappeared as well, even though they were running in the background. I thought 1) using screen I will be able to re-attach to old screens when my client restarts, 2) If I have sshed to a server and have run programs in the background, restarting the client should not stop those programs (even if I had not used screen).
I have a CentOS + Samba server and Windows XP client machines. Users, passwords and permissions are entered on the server machine.users and passwords ( same as on the server ) are entered in the XP client machine.When attempting to access a public file on the server using a XP client machine and the IP address of my server, I am asked a user name and password and none of the already entered seem to work. I cannot access the server file (prompted again and again to enter user name and password). What did i miss
Everything works fine; No problems running WinXP from an ISO, etc. I have several Windows only applications which I want to run on the WinXP VM. I cannot see the programs I have downloaded when using Explorer for Windows.Ordinarily, in a WinXP only system, I just find the program to be installed and double click on it to start the automatic installation routine.In this case, I cannot see any of the .exe files used for the install.I have placed those downloaded Windows application in the same directory on my Ubuntu Box as where VirtualBox, the Sun Guest Editions and the CD Image of the Garmin Trip and Map system.I installed the Garmin system directly from and ISO of the CD I made using Brasero. It works without a hitch.Should I take the Windows e.e programs and burn them to a CD and then transfer them as ISO tback to the VM drive?
Was running dual boot 10.10 and winxp on a MSI P4M900 motherboard. Have two HDs - one with OSs and some storage and the other purely backup for storage and Ubuntu home. Motherboard died and going to be replaced by Gigabyte G31 board. I will be using the same video, audio PCI cards and memory from old board. Should I look to a clean install of 10.10 and then bring back to life from my backup files (bookmarks, email etc) or could I plug in hard drives and boot normally? There is conflicting advice when I google - some say its OK just to boot, the kernel will sort out the new mboard drivers, others say you need a clean install.
