OpenSUSE :: NOMACHINE - NX - Unable To Stop The Server From Client If Not Root?
Apr 19, 2011
I have done a basic installation for a server.And then I have removed the screen and the keyboard because I have no place for them.I manage the server from my laptop using NX.I am using the root user account as nx user because I can't stop the server with a normal user.
I have been spending hours and hours trying to find a "Remote installation for Dummies" ....kind of step-by-step approach. But after several evenings googling and reading. This is how far I got: I have installed FeeNX on my server and after sudo nxserver -- status I get a reply like this:
NX> 100 NXSERVER - Version 2.1.0-72 OS (GPL. using backend: 3.4.0) NX> 110 NX Server is running NX> 999 Bye
so to me that looks like the server process is running. I also installed the windows Nomachine on my laptop and hooked it all up in my local network (so no routers whatsoever) I disabled the firewalls on both my laptop and my server. just in case configured the client for port 22 and the fixed IP address of my server. even imported the users.id_dsa.pub key in the client. long story short: I only get that annoying little error window from Nomachine saying: "Cannot initialize the display service"
When I connect to my Ubuntu box from any Mac OSX 10.6 client (Snow Leopard) using Nomachine, the 'd' key minimizes all windows on my Ubuntu box. I found another post here that says the issue can be fixed by changing some settings on the Ubuntu box when connected. However, I cannot find the location of the settings indicated in that post [URL].
Does anyone know how to resolve this 'd' key problem?
I have an Ubuntu jaunty fileserver. I connect to the machine from time to time using the Nomachine client on windows.Everything is setup and working perfectly, except for one thing. When I acces the server remotely, I cannot access any external USB drives connected to it. The drive mounts fine, and is available when logged on locally to the machine, just not when logged in via Nomachine.
I'm using Nomachine NX client for Windows to remotely connect to my Ubuntu.Every now and then I experience a strange phenomena: the text in the prompt of all open terminal windows becomes black, so it can't be viewed over the black background. Typed commands are also black, but the results are in normal colors. So I can run stuff, but can't see what I'm typing...After I close all open terminal windows and start a new terminal window, everything goes back to normal.
I'm after something simple to use similar to the XP fax client/fax printer. Hylafax seems an overkill. HPlip app seems to expect an HP printer/scanner or fax machine. Is it true that hplip is an HP exclusive? I'm using opensuse 11.2 with kde 4.3.1, but I would consider gfax. Gfax is not on my DVD. The docs for that on the hylafax site stop at 2008. Is an up to date Gfax a possibility? I see most of the hylafax posts in the archive get redirected to the hylafax website. I've been thru most of that stuff, but much it's out of date. Hylafax seems to be the basis for other apps.
I'm signed up for the Hylafax-user list, but I didn't see any hylafax archives to browse thru. If you are still with me here, I have an opensuse 11.2 with a dial-up internet. From the DVD I installed from I installed hylafax-4.4.4-19.3.i586 and client. That install load a bunch of fax tools at places the hylafax docs don't expect. Besides that their docs only go up to opensuse 10.2, tho there is some stuff or enterprise suse.
Note : Doing this way ( recommanded by apache documentation ) I don't know if it is the good way as recommended by NOMACHINE documentation : <<It can be updated by adding the following directive before the "Global Environment" section >>
system is RedHat v4. I removed root: admin-name@domain from /etc/aliases then ran /usr/bin/newaliases.
The admin does not get the emails but now the email generated by the cronjobs is being sent to my-name@domain outlook email from "firstname.lastname@example.org". No other changes were made. Where should I start looking for the definition of sent crontab email to my-name@domain?
I have a server and a few clients set up with LDAP and NFS. All user files and logins are on the server, and I can login as a normal user on any client and get to my files. However, if I log in as root on a client, I can't write in root-owned directories on the NFS. I suppose that client-root and server-root are different.
Question: is there some way to convince the LDAP or that client-root and server-root are the same?
I'm currently trying to stop JBoss and I'm not able to accomplish it, have look everywhere... java, etc, no idea.It was working well and then it just stopped.no changes were made from a Jboss perspective.
I have nx nomachine installed on 64bit opensuse 11.2. All was fine until I ran updates this week and now it seems that it has a mind of its own. (dont remember which packages were updates)Every time I open the cli it just starts typing the equal symbol on its own. In fact every time I open anything that can accept text input it just starts adding equal symbols. It enters them about 2 every second.Code:jason@FileServer:~> =========================I uninstalled all the NX packages, killed the .nx folder in my user folder and then reinstalled the packages and still the same thing.
I've setup an NFS share on my Fedora 15 host of which Google'ing told me that it had changed radically from the old NFSv3 config. Ie. no more /etc/hosts.allow or /etc/hosts.deny files.....My current setup is this..../etc/sysconfig/nfs:
Client unable to listen to NIS domain server.I have configured an NIS server, which is working fine.I then configured an NIS client to share some like passwd, shadow, etc.By default the client was trying to communicate to the NIS server using the broadcast method..However if I restart the client computer, it fails to communicate or Listen to the domain server. Once I login to the pc, I then check the /etc/yp.conf file and it switched back to the broadcast method.Is there any way that I can make this entry: domain naman.com server station51.naman.com permanent so that even after the reboot it should communicate using the client-server connection rather than the broadcast connection.
I have two linux machines (machine1(rhel client) and machine2 (rhel server)). I am able to login the machine2 from machine1 but I am unable to ping machine1 from machine2. Firewall is stopped in both machine.
I have configured LDAP server on RHEL 5.2 Linux. Client is unable to change its password from client linux box. I think there is PAM configuration problem in /etc/pam.d/system-auth file. What will be the exact entries in this file.
The problem is that I have three PCs two with opensuse 11.4 and one with windows xp both linux machines have installed nxserver for remote control and the xp machine has nxclient, I can connect to both linux machines with the windows client, but when I try with the linux client to the other it outputs the following error:
[code]...I changed the ssh port to 2222. this is the nx software from nomachine the client version is 3.5.0-6
I have configured the postix email server in Centos. Its working fine with Squirrel mail client. But If I configured in microsoft Outlook. it is working. with this post I have attached the error message. Please let me know solution.I am getting this error message while I check the SMTP authentication in outgoing server tab on outlook account setting configuration.If I send any email It will bounce and came to to inbox
I can successfully connect to a remote Windows Computer using Terminal Server Client but I cannot save the profile (Fedora 12).This means I have to enter the details every time I wish to connect. As I have many different remote locations I need to access on a regular basis is there any way to save the profiles?
When I try to connect to the share from my XP machine, I get a "network path cannot be found" error message.
Below is the entry in /var/log/samba/samba.log

I configured openLdap in RHEL5 on virtual achines,everything is working fine, I created a user called ldapuser,in LDAP server and i created a home directory for ldapuser in my LDAP client, now i can able to login to the both Server and client with ldapuser account....
Now here what am expecting is i want to export my server's home directory to the client, i dont want to create home directories manually in the client machine, i googled about that, and it can be done through autofs.....
what need to be done on the client and server side.
This thread (nxserver now broken?) has inspired me to install FreeNX and the client from nomachine on openSUSE-11.2 (this is the version used on both, server and client machine). The good news is: basically it works. I can connect and get the desktop. However, I have some trouble with the keyboard. Up and Down arrow keys do not work. The up arrow triggers a screen snapshot. The down arrow key does nothing. I tried to connect using qtnx as well. This does not work. Result is:
I have a small home-office network. On that network I have two linux computers, one is a client the other a server.
On the server I have NFS Server setup and mount some NFS exports on the client computer.
On the server I have the firewall on and here it becomes a little tricky.
Since both the server and the client connect to the router the interface (eth1) is theoretically both an internal & external zone.
The router is commercial grade and therefore has a good firewall on it which is also setup. Therefore the firewall on the server is really more of a backup than a necessity. But that's fine, and by having the server's firewall on 'fail2ban' is able to work which I like to have working so I don't want to just turn off the server firewall even though I have good security from the router.
However, when I turn on the server's firewall, the client computer cannot see the NFS server when scanning for server -- done by: clicking on "Choose" next to "NFS Server Hostname" when adding an NFS share in the NFS Client in YaST. Clearly something is being blocked even though I have both "NFS Client" and "NFS Server Service" allowed in the server firewall. The Firewall config. files for these are below.
The Firewall configuration is pretty much "out of the box". That is I have the services I need opened up for the external zone, the other zones are left at their default which means the internal zone, although not used (i.e.: attached to any interface), is completely open.
The perfect solution I guess would be to setup my client computer to connect through a different NIC (perhaps eth0), make that the "Internal Zone" and therefore allow all traffic through to it while still blocking the server from the external zone. However, I cannot make that physical change to my network for now so I am looking for an in between (non-perfect) solution.
In this case I am guessing that means opening up extra NFS ports to the external zone so I have full NFS functionality. I don't mind this because like I said, the router firewall is the main line of defense anyway.
So, given all of the above could someone tell me what I would need to additionally open up in the server firewall to make the NFS server detection work on the client while the firewall was on. Or, if you have a cleverer/better solution without me changing my physical network that would be great.
Hopefully I have written this in enough detail and clearly enough so that all the parameters are clear but if not, feel free to ask me what you like and I'll try to make it clear.

I have done a basic installation for a server.And then I have removed the screen and the keyboard because I have no place for them so my server is blind.I manage the server from my laptop using NX.I am using the root user because I can't stop the server with a normal user.I have installed the nvidia driver with the one click method.
Now without the monitor, the video fan is very noisy.When I click on the nvidia X Server settings button I get this message :"You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server."It seems that the driver does not load because it does not found any monitor.
i am using putty to connect to my server and wanted to restart mysql server. searched the internet and found thatcommand is /etc/init.d/mysqld start or stopbut it did not worked.then tried /etc/init.d/mysql stop or startthis also did not worked.
Unable to run programs as su - (root) from command line. example: kfind or yast2error:cannot connect to X ServerAfter I exit as root, I am able to excute both commands successfully.I will not work as su -. Operating System: SLES 9 (using KDE).
Using openSUSE 11.4 (64-bit). Desktop is default KDE. All of a sudden I am no longer able to login. My desktop only has one user and when I key in the password (which I am 100% sure it is correct!) I get the dreaded "Login failed" message. I followed these instructions without success: How to reset/recover the ROOT password in openSUSE | SUSE & openSUSE Following the instructions in the above link, I tried re-typing the old password and created new ones too. But I keep on getting the Login Failed message. A strange situation
