OpenSUSE :: Installing FileZilla / Transferring Files To/from A Windows Machine?
Aug 27, 2010
I have been using gFTP to transfer files to/from a windows machine, but have run into a problem and wanted to try FileZilla. Using YasT (Package Search) I found and selected "filezilla - A GUI FTP and SFTP Client", and proceeded to attempt to install it. The outcome is:
Attempting to install FileZilla under YasT:
Download failed: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium url.
I have a linux box that I plan to use primarily as a server. I also have another machine that dual boots Windows/Linux.I would like to have a way to backup my filehe Windows/Linux box onto the Linux server. In other words, I am assuming the hardrive on the Windows/Linux box could fail at any time and I want to have a backup of important files.Should I set up an ftp server to do this? Are there any security issues that I need to be concerned about if the files contain sensitive information etc?
Desktop, laptop, both static IPs, can ping each other no issue. 10.04 LTS.Am attempting to transfer files using Filezilla (which worked when I tried it about two years ago!) and the overall response is 'No route to host'. I have scoured the interwebs and have found no solution. Pretty sure I'm putting in the correct details.
I've resolved to move onto Ubuntu, but I haven't done so quite yet. One question that sprang to mind was the transferral of files from the Windows OS to the Linux OS on the same machine, if it's possible. I'm thinking something like the dual partition, though I suppose Copy/paste wouldn't work.
Another possible solution was using dual partition and then Windows SCP, but everything I've read on the topic indicates that SCP works by finding the (different) host address of the computer; thus it would read my machine as one, even if I'm running Ubuntu on it as well.
how to transfer these friggin' things.
Part of the reason for my query is that I am quite strapped financially and am unable to backup my files on an internet service or on discs.
I want to convert my wife's computer from MS XP 2003 to Ubuntu 10.10. I have saved "My Documents" to an external hard drive. How will I go about transferring these files to Ubuntu? Do I just pick individual files and go to "Save As"? Can I just transfer them en mass?
Im trying to setup samba so that i can copy some files from my windows 7 machine over to the drive on the opensuse machine running 11.2. i believe i set everything how it should be set up but no matter what i do i cant write filesfrom the windows machine. Here is my smb.conf
# smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the # samba-doc package is installed. # Date: 2009-10-27 [global]
I have two different Linux operating systems (on two separate partitions) on my laptop. One is open SUSE and the second is PCLinuxOS and I frequently have to update files and folders from one to the other (the consequences of trying to keep both current!). When I am using openSUSE and want to access folders/files on the other OS, openSUSE asks for SU authorisation to access the other . . ./home file. Until recently, I could open ALL of the folders on the (other) /home file but now I can open some folders but not others. The Dolphin screen shows a warning at the bottom that "Could not enter folder /media...... " ! I can then only access the folder by going into the menu and using the 'File manager -Super User' mode ..AGAIN.
I suspect this action is necessary because I have had to previously open these specific folders in 'Root mode' to be able to 'paste' the moved file! I would like to avoid this (double) 'messy' action - how to change/avoid this My system is a 32bit openSUSE 11.4 with KDE 4.6.0 and the 2nd OS is also KDE 4.6
I had run one script in unix machine and want to copy the results to a windows machineBoth the machines are on different networksIn linux machine trying to do the ftp to the windows machine its giving connection refused. How to chech whether ftp is running on that linux machine or not?Also tried scp and ssh , both are failing
I have an Acer laptop, on which a I have Ubuntu installed with no disk partitioning. I may need to install Windows 7 on this machine but have no desire to stop using Ubuntu for normal use. Is it possible to create a partition to install Windows on, without changing my Ubuntu set up? Also, whilst I'm at it, I'd like to create a third partition for general data storage.
The problem with the kind of say I'm a Debian era "learned" to use that gnome-commander program for transferring files. The problem has now become a fact that when the connector for the USB stick machine, so it appears pcmanfm file management, and yes it works fine (ie I use opensuse 11.4 LXDE desktop), but the gnome-commander:in the sticks did not appear at allAnd why say that matter could be caused, and will be able to do something about it?
I have a duo core HP machine with two (2) physical hard drives.Drive C has the win Vista Media center version installed.The second drive has 2 partitions of 500gb each.One has all my windows data files on it and the second partition I have reserverd for the installation of Linux.How to install Linux on the second partition (SDB1) without loosing the ability to use windows when i need.In other words i want to establish a dual boot system and not disturb the existing windows installation by installing Linux and then be able to boot into a dual boot system that will let me select which OS to boot to.
I want to install Windows 7 on a separate drive on my PC that already has Ubuntu. I was wondering if anybody had any tips on how best to go about this? I was going to install a new empty drive, removing the current one, then put the current drive back once Windows had been installed. However, I'm not entirely sure if this will work, since Linux currently runs from the first drive: Will it be confused by making its drive the second drive (these will both be SATA drives, BTW), and how would I get Linux to run? Could I change which drive to boot from in the BIOS, or would replacing the MBR to provide a boot loader menu be easier?
i currently am running windos 7 (64 bit) and would also like to install ubuntu on a second hard drive. i understand a dual boot is easy enough to do, but i'd like to install ubuntu so that it and windows are completely isolated. rather than be prompted with a boot screen to choose os, i would do so by changing hd boot priority in bios. i'd like the end result to be 2 separte computers in one box. can it be set up this way, and if so, how?
I have once tried transferring files from Redhat 9 web files to Centos 5.5 /var/www/html/ directory. Ok... LAMP is installed and working fine. httpd / apache is running and mysqld is installed without root password. Now I wan't to transfer it again to secure the database from Centos 5 to fedora 13. But when I tried browsing the web to check the web files I can only see these:
If i download files from the internet to the ubuntu home download folder will that kill off windows viruses? Ive also have avast on demand scanner-but are anti-viruses effective against windows viruses these days?
I've been wondering how to see files stored in a ubuntu 10.04 machine while working in a windows vista one in a local network. the most I have gotten is to connect the vista machine to the ubuntu network but i have to copy the files to the windows computer to watch them in that computer.
I'm running kernel release 2.6.26-2-686 on a i686 and are trying to share files between my machine and some Windows 95/98 machines. When I enter smb://ip_number/share_name in Nautilus, it works. I can browse the files. When I try the same with smbclient or smbmount, it complains.
smbclient -I=ip_number -L=//server/share gives cli_rpc_pipe_open: cli_nt_create failed on pipe srvsvc to machine tf_calibration. Error was ERRSRV - ERRerror (Non-specific error code.)
I'm having some problems with file and print sharing between my Fedora 12 box and my Win 7 box. trying to access shares on the Win 7 machine results in a "unable to retrieve the shares list" error message. I've been searching Google for a while now with no success.
I need a command-line method of copying files from a Linux box to a Windows machine that is in a domain and requires authentication. I cannot install additional software or services on the Windows XP machine. I can install any software on the Linux machine. I've tried scp, but the connection failed and if my understanding is correct it is because scp requires that the target (windows machine) be running an ssh service. Is there a command-line linux utility that can pass Windows domain user and password and then copy a file from the linux machine to a share on the windows machine?
I have a Win7 deskptop (host) and want to run a linux virtual machine; but I want that linux virtual machine to be able to access a directory on the host machine (in this case, to serve a web directory).
What virtual machine software would you recommend for this?
I am trying to see share files on my windows machine to my linux machine. I would like an answer to how to fix the problem. This is where i am at i am using my own network to learn who to use nmap properly. I ping my whole network with nmap -sS -O. Then i used nmblookup -a which gave me the infromation i needed. Then i run smbclient -L computername -I ip address -N
This will not show me the windows os this only show me my laptop. What can i change for this to show me the other computer on this network. The port i am wanting is open. I want to be able to mount the share files and move them to my computer i am going to use the commands put and get to move the files when i am able to get to the smb: >
I am trying to share files between my Windows XP machine and ubuntu server. I set up and configured samba following the instructions in the Online Ubuntu Server Guide. [URL] This is the abbreviated version of my smb.conf file here.
[global] workgroup = HOME server string = %h server interfaces = 127.0.0.0/8, 192.168.1.101/24 # map to guest = Bad User
What is the best way to share files in virtualbox between host/machine I thought of trying usb but the devices are all greyed out. I know the fix for this but I have to search for it, permission problem I think? Or is there a more elegant way
I have been trying to get a home server to do what i want but just not getting there.I only need it to serve up the files to a home ( non internet ) network.I saw that filezilla also comes in a Linux version also. I am going to give it a try next. Anyone use the linux version of filezilla ? What happened did it work not work ?
I'm trying to install on a machine that has a CD drive but no DVD (and is currently running 10.3). Following the procedure here I created a filesystem on the server and copied the DVD ISO to that. I boot with the network install CD and in the boot options I put in install=hd:/dev/sda7/openSUSE-11.2-i586.iso But then I get a red error diag saying Could not find the openSUSE respository Activating manual setup program
I go into the manual setup program, select hard disk, sda7, the iso file appears in the "Enter the source directory." dialog so I click OK. It does the "Loading the installation system" (or something, it's quick) and then errors with "No repository found". I have also tried sharing the iso file from a windows server and using network SMB but that didn't work. Tried mounting the install DVD (that I have used successfully before) on the windows machine, sharing it, and point the manual SMB install at that. Everything gives me "No repository found." I could use the Network CD to do an Internet install, but that seems unnecessarily slow and wasteful of bandwidth when I've already downloaded the DVD iso.
I have 30 systems in a LAN . My users need to login as domain user from their XP clients and store their files in the Linux server. They should not be allowed to store in local machine and also should be granted a particular size of space in server.
what are the procedures to be done in linux server and
just like in windows we access shared files in by typing in run command
\192.168.0.1 is there a provision to view shared files from xp to Linux
