I may have to work in another state for some time, and I'd like to access my home machine desktop remotely, like this: Server - home machine, oS 11.4 64-bit, KDE 4.7, 1920 x 1200 screen (currently set to 24-bit color depth), 1 Mbps upload speed, behind a Dlink DL-524 router I manage.
Client: laptop, oS 11.4 64-bit, KDE 4.6.5, 1280 x 800 screen (also 24-bit color depth), unknown up/down speed - probably huge at work, crappy at apart hotel. I'd like to keep the server resolution, if possible, even if the client's is smaller. I want to be able to star/stop KDE apps in the server, move files between folders, and fix the issues that only happen when my wife is at the keyboard (it's a machine conspiracy, she says ). So I'd need to connect to the server's current session/user (which is myself, i.e., same login/password).
What do you recommend for this? I've read Swerdna's tutorial for 11.2/11.2 (a million seen malcomlewis xrdp 0.6 packages for 11.4 (you rock, malcomlewis!), as well as this thread: RDP into OpenSUSE 11.2, however most seem concerned with rdp between windows and linux boxes. Is there something better/faster/simpler for oS-to-oS RDP or should I use xrdp all the same?
I have had a notebook with an ethernet plugged in cable before, sent a signal through the cable by resetting my router, and it switched my notebook on from cold. My question is, is there a way of doing this using a remote desktop client. Ideally, I would like a machine switched off at home running suse linux/windows, then have a client computer sent the remote request, this in turn activates the machine, which boots and then gives the rmote client control.
regarding a remote connection from my workplace to my home system. On my home a have a connection to the ISP and the provider is allocating a dynamic IP to my router. How can I connect from my work computer to the home computer? There are other application or other stuff for making this possible?
Just a few moments ago I got notified by the remote desktop application that someone logged in. As I have not given out my remote desktop information to anyone it has to be some sort of attack. I immediately rebooted and I noticed erratic hard drive activity. A few applications with 'tracker' in their name were causing major cpu load so I killed them. Right now my computer is not logged into the Internet so it's probably impossible for any more of my data to leak out.
I have been reading up around the internet that although it is possible to use MSTSC.exe under Windows XP to connect back to a Suse machine running XRDP (I believe).I had been working fine with Suse 11.0 until today. I had not made any changes to my local network but now whenever I try to connect in, I am told that I can not start the session as the sesman logon fails!
I tail'ed /var/log/messages but there is nothing written to that log when I try (interestingly enough, I do get the logon prompt that requests username, password and session type - I usually select KDE3 but have tried all options - and get the error after clicking OK).
My questions:- 1. Is XRDP under 11.1 any better (more stable as when it worked, I use to get kicked out a lot under 11.0) 2. What log file should I be trying to tail so I can see what is happening?
I must use Linux as the back end, I don't want to use a hacked copy of XP anymore and don't want to pay �� for a real version when Linux is free and should by now be able to grant me access to my network from a remote location!VNC is not an option as I will be wanting to log on more than one user at the same time.
I have OpenVPN 2.0.8 installed configured to Ethernet Bridge BR0. All windows outside machines can "see" and mount remote inside firewalled machines (i.e. \machine1 or [URL]). However I can't access to inside windows machines with windows Remote Desktop
I have my main box, Ubuntu 10.04lts, and I am trying to use remote desktop viewer to see the desktop on a Windows XP machine. The machines are side by side The Ubuntu box is hardwired to my network router, and the XP machine is connected via wireless. Both get to the internet fine, and I can ping the Ubuntu box from the XP box. But, I cannot ping the XP box from the Ubuntu box, and Remote Desktop Viewer won't establish a connection to the VNC server I have running on the XP box.
I have a VPS by my host running on a linux server, and they have given me SSH access. Is it possible to remote desktop into the server, like you can on Windows, so that I can physcially click on things rather than having to use SSH commands?
Surely this must be running on Fedora or Ubuntu etc. so there is some type of OS. You would probably have to install something on the servers end I suppose but just want to know if its possible and what the options are.
I cannot remote desktop to the Debian machine from anywhere,hether within the same network, or on a different network elsewhere. Also, the personal wiki I set up on it to be viewed via a normal web browser cannot be accessed, either. Both time out when attempting to connect to them. I can still ping the Debian machine when on the same network, though.
This started some time ago when we had a failure occur on our main server.had to powercycle everything in order to restore things back to normal, the Debian machine included. Since that time, this problem started to occur. This is a major thorn in my side in attempting to prepare for our website to move,I've been unable to figure out how to fix it.Originally, I thought it would be something in between the Debian machine and anything else, which would mean something like our firewall box or our hardware switch was the problem. But the tech support people who maintain those for us confirm that there is nothing wrong with them, so now I'm not certain anymore.
I want to use a headless (no monitor) and armless (no keyboard/mouse) PC as a Linux box that I can remotely access from my other machines. That is I want to make it look like I'm sitting at the console on the Linux box with a monitor/keyboard/mouse.
I've tried that via the instructions at [URL]
but, the moment I disconnect the monitor and reboot, the remote desktop connection fails as apparently X fails to start for lack of a "screen". Removing the keyboard/mouse does not seem to be a problem.
Is there a workaround?
I guess what I'm looking for is the remote desktop behavior from Windows XP/Vista:
1. Connect -> Get logon screen
2. Disconnect -> Session remains active on remote machine and can be reconnected to
I have recently installed fedora 14 and configured vpn to access my work network. I need to access some windows machines which although I can ping I cannot remote desktop into. When I go to Applications>Internet> Remote Desktop Viewer and put in the machine name (either just the machine name or the FQDN including the domain name) I get an error "Connection to <machinename> was closed".
I was looking for:how to access my Linux machine(OpenSuse 11.3) that is being hosted at my hoster company from my home Win Pc, I found TightVNC , but I am confused, should I install it on both systems ( viewer and server) ? .. what about the VirtualBox , can i Access with that tool or it is only for mounting the local Virtual Machines?
I've got an old p3 with 11 ide hard drives strapped to it for storage and I decided to throw Ubuntu server on it because it's more lightweight than a standard ubuntu install, and given it's a pentium 3 with 128mb of ram, lightweight is good. I installed, through putty (ssh), the gnome gui - then learned that putty only does cli (i was thrilled), so I've spend the last hour trying to figure out how to enable remote desktop.
I don't mind reinstalling to do what is necessary. remote desktop to manage file downloads from my windows 7 machine(s) big list, i know. history: this thing is/was my media server. I had xp on it, sharing all drives and watching hd movies off it, but then xp decided it did't want to boot anymore so here we are. I'm thinking of just putting ubuntu 8.04/8.10 on it and through its wonderful gui enabling remote desktop and using realvnc/tightvnc to access it
I've run into a bit of a problem with an attempt to remotely admin a friend's computer. Here's the basic layout:
--My Ubuntu is connected via wireless router, port 22 forwarded properly. I can ssh in and out as I please to other hosts. --Across the internet, their Eeebuntu is behind a router as well. Port 22 may or may not be properly forwarded. Nobody in that house really knows how to access their router. (I accept this may be an issue I'll need to handle)
What I'd like to do:First priority, ssh access to the remote Eeebuntu.Assuming the remote router does not forward port 22, would I be able to have the remote computer remote forward, say my local port 10022 to remote 10022, thus allowing me to ssh user@localhost:10022 and bypass the need to access the router?
Lower priority, prepare a bash script for my friend to download that would require one input of the root password, and go through the full process of installing OpenSSH, setting up the server, and initiating contact to my computer. The ideal situation is allowing my friend to start the computer, run one script, type in one password, and walk away.Any ideas for better remote admin options are welcome, as well as comments/suggestions from anyone who has attempted this backwards form of ssh access.
I am a novice who prefers using the GUI. I am trying to connect a home network of two Windows XP Pro laptops with a Linux desktop (Kubuntu 10.04 LTS). The Linux machine connected easily to the Internet through the network gateway and can see both Windows machines. It can read Shared Documents on one Windows machine without authentication but cannot access the second (perhaps because the second is connected directly to the router instead of a hub like the other two).
On the second Windows machine authorization is requested for Shared folders but Administrator and User names and passwords don't work. All machines can be pinged, and Kubuntu has a fixed network IP address. I have read many HowTos and followed some command-line instructions for setting up Samba but may have confused the setup. Now when I get Kubuntu program updates there is an error report for "samba-common". I would like to be able to share files and printers, and also transfer files from Windows to a Linux folder.
I just installed open Suse 11.3, and I cannot SSH my school. Upon further investigation I could not even ping any machines outside my local area network. Ironically I could nmap machines outside my local area network.
This is a thread I've moved over from the install forum and is hopefully more focused. Sorry if I have violated some protocol. Problem I have a new machine build configured to dual-boot Windows 7 and OPENSUSE 11.4. Network performance in Windows is very good but network performance in OPENSUSE is very poor.
Whenever I put ssh into remote machine am getting the following messages. Write Failed: Broken Pipe (After logged into that machine ) Read Socket Failed: Connection reset by peer (While trying to log in ) Also known_hosts file is changed frequently.
I installed OpenSuSE 11.3. The only "extra" package I put in after the install was VirtualBox-ose. The firewall is disabled. I gave the machine a static IP address. I can get to the Internet from the machine. I enabled sshd to start on boot with "chkconfig sshd on" and also verified the service is running on the machine. I can ssh user@localhost from the machine as well.
When I try to connect to SSH from another machine, I get a connection refused. I verify that the firewall is down. I also try to get to VNC -- same problem: Connection refused. I ping the machine for fun. If I try to SSH again, it sometimes gives me a logon? I would check the server logs for the connection refused, but I wouldn't know where to look. I started in /var/log/messages, but nothing seemed to jump out there. I also find it strange because I can RDP to a windows guest running under VirtualBox. The Windows guest uses Bridged Network and DHCP.
I also find it interesting that I sometimes type a "ping google.com" from the 11.3 box and it will just hang - no output. Then I open firefox and get to the internet. All of a sudden, ping starts to give output. Could this be a neetwork card issue? A configuration issue? I don't know where to start.
I have been playing with Linux and XWindows for a long time, but this is the first time I have ever needed to post a question to find out how to configure things. Please do not tell me that this TightVNC (VNC Xvnc) on openSUSE as Client or Server (Remote Desktop Connections) is how it is done.
I have a Headless SuSE server on an internal netework, my only access to it is remotely, I need remote desktop as a service for all the accounts. Is this possible in KDE4??
I looked in YAST it appears everything is installed on my 11.3 machine to remotely view another desktop what I am missing is how I set that up on both ends. The desktops I want to view are on the local network. A Windows 7 64 machine and a openSUSE 11.4 machine.Does anyone have experience setting this up?
Recently loaded 11.3 onto a virtual machine, however none of the network settings will allow me to connect to the internet. First time Ive had this happen, other distro's Ive experimented with connected with no problems. I recall seeing a similar topic some time ago (dont remember if it was here or another forum), but at the time, there had been no fix. Anyone know if this has been fixed?
I am using debian testing on my office pc, but i need to access it's desktop from time to time. So i need No machine/teamviewer software that can provide me with possibility to interact my desktop. The problem is, that i want to run shadowed session type, because teamviewer is not good for me. So, when i run no machine in shadowed mode, it crashes with message "The connection with remote server was shut down, please check your network settings and try again." The log is here:
Running Ubuntu 9.10. In the Remote Desktop config dialog I get: "Your desktop is only reachable over the local network. Others can access your computer using the address 127.0.0.1 or tabatha.local." I understand this means only the loopback ip address is available. All my other machines show their true local ip address (e.g., 192.168.1.104) in this dialog. Thus I cannot log on to this desktop from other machines.
When I try to do a remote logon from another Ubuntu 9.10 box (or from an XP box using a VNC viewer), I get: "Connection to 192.168.1.102 has been closed." What steps are needed to make this machine show its actual ip address? All file sharing between the various machines is working properly and all windows shares back and forth between XP and 'nix, and among the the vaious XP boxes and linux boxes are available as designed.
