Networking :: Udp Client Not Working From Remote Host?

Apr 17, 2010

i have a udp server running at port 60178. when i connect to it from localhost there is no problem. when i use the client from a remote host i am not able to connect. I changed my server firewall settings[Fedora 11] and added "udp 60178" to trusted ports but still nothing happened. I ran wireshark and observed that packets are coming to the server machine but server returns a "Port Unreachable" ICMP message and doesnt give the packet to the application.

Networking :: VirtualBox - Connecting Host And Client

Oct 15, 2010

I am trying to config linux box as router.

I have CentOS 5.5 client and host in VBox. I can't connect them (I am using bridge adapter mode) as I don't have router in between.

I just created DHCPD on host, and followed


But that don't seem to work also. Host is and client is but when I ping host from client, it says Destination host unreachable.

Networking :: Fedora 10 - Unable To Ssh Out From Box To Remote Host?

Apr 10, 2009

I have a box (boell) running Fedora 10 sitting behind a firewall at school. I am able to freely ssh to and from this box to other computers (minion) within that lan. Outside of this network I cannot directly ssh to boell - I must ssh first to minion, then I can ssh to boell. I've spoken with the sysadmin and he's verified that the firewall permits ssh freely - i haven't had any issues like this with other boxes of mine there, so this isn't any surprise.

I have verified that the hosts.deny file is blank, iptables permits ports 22 (and 80) and I didn't see anything obvious in the sshd_config. I tried a tcp dump on the external host and boell while attempting to ssh from the former to boell. The packets appear to be acknowledged by boell, but this fails to lead to a connection. I've tried this process with external hosts in different locations with the same result. I have made few modifications to the default installation for F10, so perhaps there is some default somewhere I have to change. In any case, below I have attached excerpts of germane files.

======== ssh from boell =======
[root@boell log]# ssh -vvv
OpenSSH_5.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007

Networking :: Automatically Pass A Password To Rsync For Remote Host?

May 24, 2011

I need to be able to use an rsync command in script that will be run by cron. And it needs to be able to pass a password to rsync so that the remote server it's connecting to will authenticate.

I cannot set up ssh keys between the two servers, it's not an option. I cannot use any other language other than bash, it's my only option. I know this is highly insecure, I have no other option.

So far I have this:
rsync --rsh="/usr/bin/ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null -o PreferredAuthentications=password" -raxv /source/dir/* user@remotehost:/target/directory/.

This allows the script to ignore host verification and goes directly to the password prompt. I need the script to fill in this password prompt with the password that is stored in a variable.

I tried using expect, but I honestly don't know the syntax, it just keeps failing. A lot of the examples I'm finding online for expect starts off with a "spawn", which i don't have installed, and not sure if I have the ability to install it yet.

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Sessions - MS RDP Client 5.2

Aug 12, 2010

I have a mate who runs the IT in his office. He has recently set up and secured the network but now has an issue logging in to the network from home. Here is the message I got from him regarding the set up and what he is having specific issues with.

I was really pleased with the results on my Pen Test; the office itself is a pure MS environment but the testers all use Ubuntu 9.10 to hack with. The main tools of choice are Nessus and Ophcrack with a bit of NMap. It's pretty scary what you can do with just these tools. I had a Wireshark trace running all the time and it's fascinating to watch how these guys crack open a system. The only really major change I've had to implement on my network is to force the use of SSL as a transport layer for our remote desktop sessions. This has forced me to start using MS RDP Client 5.2 because it can use certificates on the session. The problem I've got now is that the Terminal Client in Ubuntu can't do this so I can't remote in from home on my Ubuntu laptop.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Connect To Remote Host - Connection Timed Out

Also, during install of the new ubuntu, it was unable to reach the repos for downloading. Odd thing is that I can go online, and that when I type '' in my browser, it displays the file-hierarchy.

Ubuntu Networking :: What Is Syntax For SSH Tunnel Host In Remote Desktop Viewer?

Aug 1, 2011

I have succeeded in using Remote Desktop Viewer to make a VNC connection to a remote WAN computer and it was quick enough to manipulate the remote computer in real time.I found the host name by getting the remote target computer to put the following url into a browser - - It returned the address for the router which I put into the Host: text entry box in the Remote Desktop Viewer window. E.g. for my computer at the time of submitting my enquiry the address was ''.The remote router that I connected to needed to have the port 5900 forwarded to the remote target computer.I now want to progress to running VNC through a SSH tunnel for additional security. In the Remote Desktop Viewer there is a configuration line

'use host' <text box to enter host name> 'as a SSH tunnel'.What is the correct syntax to enter in the text box? It would help my understanding if you used the example address above as a basis for a response.Many unexpected connection attempts reported on my router, if that was you, thank you for the novel way in responding to the question and providing the syntax.The 'bible' on syntax appears to be found here:-

I haven't been able to login this time for over 1 day. It's started saying something about Tcl_InitNotifier: unable to start notifier thread. My host can access the machine locally to fix this, but what is going on? Why is this occurring?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Work Remote Desktop Via The Terminal Server Client On Wired Box Running 10.10?

Dec 3, 2010

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?

Our company uses a customized vpnc (based on and almost the same as vpnc 0.5.3). I first tested it on a Windows host under Virtualbox everything works straight away. But when I want to use it on a Linux host directly it always ends in "No response from target". I have tested this on Fedora 12 and the latest Ubuntu.
I thought of firewall settings but iptables -L on Ubuntu returns an empty list even.

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Not Working?

Feb 16, 2011

I have a Laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 and a Netbook with Remix 10.04. I'm trying to connect by Remote Desktop from the Laptop to the Netbook. Remote Desktop wasn't installed by default in Remix so I installed it via software centre. I then configured Remote desktop in both machines. When I do Connect on the laptop all I get is a black screen and then it closes with the message "Connection to host was Closed". This happens when I try either VNC or SSH. The other thing that's odd, although both machines are on the same WLAN and I checked "configure networkautomatically to accept connections" on both machines, the Laptop doesn't find the other machine in Remote Desktop. What am I/have I done wrong or have I ommitted something?

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Stopped Working ?

Mar 8, 2011

I have a remote desktop app for my ipod that i use every now and then, but after about a week and a half of not using remote desktop on either my ipod or my computer, it seems to have stopped working. the problem is with my computer rather than my ipod. when i go to menu>system>preferences>remote desktop, the area where it is supposed to give you the ip address, or whatever it is to connect remotely, is no longer a number, but just the word "localhost". i only saw this after my ipod told me it could not find the host, so i checked and thats when i saw localhost. putting that into the remote desktop app did nothing, so i tried my ip address and that didnt work either. clicking on "localhost" brings up evolution mail which wants me to send it as an email, strangely. not sure whats going on here.
