Security :: Connect To Another Server (B) To Transfer Data Everyday?

Apr 13, 2010

I have a server A that needs to connect to another server (B) to transfer data everyday.[A] ==SFTP==> [B]

I am using SFTP for the data transfert between A and B. I configured B to allow authentication only with a key, not with password. However, anybody who acccess the filesystem of A, could steal the password.

So I thought I could password protect the private key from A. But in such a case, I need to store the password somewhere on A, so the server A can access the private key to connect to B. Finally, it is endless: i always have to store somewhere a secret on A. Is there another solution that allow to have an authentication between A and B without storing plain text secret on the server A ?

CentOS 5 Server :: Openssh 5.8p2 - Transfer Data From Other Server Through Scp It Gives Connection Refused?

Aug 1, 2011

I have configured openssh 5.8p2 with centos 5.6. My sftp is working fine with chroot environment but i am having problem with SCP. I am dealing with muliti Redhat servers. When i try to transfer data from other linux server through scp it gives connection refused. For e.g ssh 5.8 is configured on new server and i want to transfer files from old server which is using openssh 4.3 version.i created same username and password on new server as on old server.My sftp users on new server has no shell access but only sftp access. When i try to scp from old server to new server it gives error connection refused. Is the below configuration only for sftp and can't scp? According to google the configurations i found are for scp and sftp. Do i need to generate ssh keys by giving users on new server shell access, once created then stop shell access again, as i dont want to give shell access permanent for security reasons? but i want to use ssh keys for more security as well.

Port 22
PermitRootLogin no

Ubuntu Security :: Data Cha0s Connect Back Backdoor

Aug 28, 2010

I believe that the attacker somehow got in through the ssh daemon(OpenSSH 5.3p1) on June 12. From here, a user account named "crond" was created(can anyone confirm weather this is normal?) and according to the log, this account was accessed several times between Jun 12 and Jun 18 from the same ip address. Also on Jun 12, the MOTD on the ssh server was messed up and remained that way until it was reinstalled. The default ssh client(OpenSSH 5.3p1) was made completely non-functional.

I became alerted to the problem when my ISP advised me to run a virus scan on the machines on my network. Not knowing of any linux based anti-virus software, I decided to check for suspicious files on my hard drive. I found one, in the /tmp directory was a subdirectory called ".popscan". Inside was a script and a list of about 40 very default sounding usernames and passwords. There was also a file called "back.txt" in the root of my filesystem. Which is a pearl script that aparently spawns a shell.

At this point I disconnected the server from the internet and mirrored the drive. I found a suspicious home directory for "crond" I'm hesitating on setting up the server again for fear that it might just get rooted again. I would also like to find out how he got in so it can be prevented for other people aswell.

Ubuntu Networking :: Transfer Of Data From PC To Mac ?

Jul 26, 2011

Recently I had a situation where I had to transfer data from a PC to a Mac. Usually we simply convert the data as necessary, ie. bookmarks, contacts, etc. move the info to a dropbox account and use Windows networking to access the dropbox from a Mac. Well, there was a network issue and it was suggested that I boot to Ubuntu and do this. We do have Ubuntu on a flash drive but I was lost from there. Can anyone point me in the direction of documentation or assist me in understanding how this would be accomplished? I have a Mac, PC and Linux box at home so hopefully I have all the necessary tools to test this out.

Networking :: How To Log TCP And UDP Errors During Data Transfer

Aug 19, 2009

I am quite newbie with Linux networking and I want to know if there exist a log in Linux where errors during transfers are stored. I mean, when I'm transferring data between two hosts is there any way to log somewhere (where?) the errors or warning during the transfer? That is, connection failures, TCP or UDP errors, etc.? Is there any "log level" to select the errors to be displayed in the log not to work with a huge log file?

Software :: Data Transfer With CRC Check

Jun 21, 2011

I'm going to be needing to copy over 2 terabytes from one drive to another in a couple of days and I need something that I can use to transfer the files with CRC checking. Something comparable to Teracopy in Windows.

Open Source is an absolute must. I'm running on Debian and getting away from Windows to get away from all of the proprietary software. If it's going to be proprietary I might aswell just boot back into Windows as far as I'm concerned.

Some of the features that would be nice but not needed

-GUI (preferably gtk)
-Pause/Resume (it's going to be a long transfer so it would be nice.)

Those would be nice but CRC checking is an absolute must have for so much data.

OpenSUSE Network :: Transfer Data Using SSH Massage

Jun 12, 2010

when I try to transfer data from my laptop to the desktop using SSH I get the following massage:

Code:
:~> ssh nobani@192.168.1.3
The authenticity of host '192.168.1.3 (192.168.1.3)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is f3:94:fa:7c:f1:92:07:45:3c:5b:99:51:dc:b7:a1:ff.

Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? I wonder is it normal massage or is there something not good?

I am using openSUSE11.2 with KDE on both machine

Ubuntu Multimedia :: MTP Devices Data Transfer Fix

Aug 1, 2010

For the past few days, i have been trying to fix a common error related to mtp devices such as creative zen. Because of the new updated libmtp8 library, it is impossible to transfer files into any mtp devices. However there is a fix that will remove this issue.

1. Get the older karmic version of libmtp8 from here: URL...
2. Install this package from terminal using: sudo dpkg -i libmtp8*.deb
3. Lock libmtp8 from the synaptic package manager, so it doesn't get updated.
4. Uninstall and then downgrade any mtp packages (through packages.ubuntu.com) that become broken after step 2 to the karmic version.
5. Enjoy.

Ubuntu :: Way To Transfer Data To New Desktop Computer ?

May 29, 2011

I have a number of queries but will start with one. I presently operate 11.04 Classic (no effects). OS is NOT set up as dual boot. As I am considering purchasing a new Desktop, I am wondering what is the best way to recover such things as folders, Firefox bookmarks etc. for four users.

I do have a external HDD which I guess could be used for a possible backup if that is the way to go! The new computer will probably have Windows 7 installed with which I assume I would probably dual boot.

General :: Data Transfers After The Transfer Is Completed?

Jul 30, 2010

For example I am copying data to USB-flash drive using some file manager. When the file manager shows that transfer is complete, flash drive indicator continues to light. As far as I know this is some kind of caching system...

1. Is it OK to close file manager when transfer window is closed but the flash drive indicator continues to light (data is still being copied)?

2. Is it better if I turn off this caching technology?

Fedora Networking :: Slower Data Transfer Rate In KDE V GDM?

Nov 25, 2010

I have a FC13 box that has both Gnome and KDE sessions installed.

I have noticed on the KDE session that data transfer rates are slower than when I use Gnome.

In Gnome, I can transfer files between my FC13 machine and my Ubuntu 10.04 pc at a rate of 6.5 MB/s (52 Mb/s if my maths is correct), but in KDE the rate is only 3.5 MB/s (28 Mb/s).

"ethtool eth0" shows my NIC speed as 100 Mb/s. Obviously I am not hitting anywhere near that speed in either session, (a separate article may be happen in the future to address that), but I am curious as to why KDE is that much slower for file transfer.
