Software :: Finding A Software To Monitor And Give Details On ISP And Internet Connection

Jun 19, 2010

I'm desperately in need of a Linux software that would give me a report on my internet connection. I'm connected to this pathetic ISP who's connection from my end keeps going down every two minutes (even though for a little while), but my downloads keeps getting interrupted, and it's generally frustrating. One moment I can have a DL of 512kbps and the next moment it's 0kbps. At times browsing won't be available, but other things like chat will be working fine.

The problem is, I've signed up with them on an annual package and made advance payment. Now they keep telling me there is nothing wrong with their internet provision and I cannot ask for my money. That is why I need some app that will sit in my PC and monitor the connection o24/7 and give me a report of how many times the connection kept going down, average speeds, etc.., which I can give to them.

I've tried installing Nagios, MRTG and others from synaptic, but don't even know how to start them up - they're not even appearing in the main menu. I tried to load MRTG from the terminal but it tells me:


ERROR: Mrtg will most likely not work properly when the environment variable LANG is set to UTF-8. Please run mrtg in an environment where this is not the case. Try the following command to start:

env LANG=C /usr/bin/mrtg

I even tried what it tells me, but no luck and I don't even know if I'm on the right track by using Nagios or MRTG?

Security :: Ssh/pam When Trying To Ssh In / Give It The Correct Password But Not Accepting?

Apr 1, 2010

So on one of the Linux systems here (2.6 kernel if it matters), there's some weirdness regarding trying to ssh into the system. Basically, if you give it the wrong password on the first ssh attempt, it will give you two more attempts, but even if you give it the correct password, it still won't let you in on those subsequent attempts. (If you give the correct password on the first attempt, it will let you in.)


user1@machine1# ssh user2@machine2
user2@machine2's password: <wrong password>
Permission denied, please try again.

The system has sshd configured to use pam (i.e., UsePAM set to 'yes' in sshd_config), but I'm kind of a PAM dummy.

Fedora Security :: Give FTP Control Of Different Directories To Different Users

Aug 24, 2010

I have my own dedicated server box running (using it for game servers). I access it via ssh and I have root control of it. It has FEDORA Operating System. I wanna give FTP control of different directories to different users. Right now there are no other FTP users except root. I have installed vsftpd and dont know what should I do next? How do I add users (who can read/write/delete files) and How do I restrict them to their home directory?

Here is what I want:
home directory: home/server1
home directory: home/server2

Security :: How To Make PAM Give Message When Denying Ssh Access?

Oct 23, 2009

We use PAM to control access to our RHEL4 servers. We would like PAM to give a message, of our choice, when users who are not allowed to login try to login. PAM's default is to let the user try 3 times without any explanation.

Security :: When To Give Write Access To Folders On A Web Server

Feb 3, 2011

on the following link [URL] section 2 says


The following directories need to be readable, writeable and executable for everyone:

* dokeos/main/inc/conf/
* dokeos/main/upload/users/
* dokeos/main/default_course_document/
* dokeos/archive/


I am not at all convinced by the idea of giving permissions to read,write and execute as these Learning Management Systems say. Let me know what you people have to say? What is the best practise in such situations? I have to get all these LMS run on same web server.

Ubuntu Security :: Anyway To Get Nautilus To Give Root Permissions On Server?

Mar 30, 2010

I have recently secured a server by preventing root from logging in via SSH. Now I log in with a non-root account and use 'su' when necessary.However, now I can't do something I used to do, which is open 'sftp://user@ipaddress' in nautilus and be able to edit files as root. Is there anyway to get nautilus to give me root permissions on the server? Or at least end up with root permissions in a GUI text editor on my computer? I don't mind if I have to use bash to start the process, once I can get a GUI for editing files.

Note 1: Yes, I realize I could ssh in and use nano/vi etc, but I'd rather use my graphical text editor.
Note 2: The server does not run X, so I can't just forward it.

The cisco folks are requesting access to these logs, which is allowed by company policy.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Dts Passthrough Works In Many Many Ways With No Success

Jan 18, 2010

I found myself in troubles. I was trying to get dts passthrough works in many many ways with no success. Finally I (desperately) decided to try OSS rather than ALSA following this guide: [URL].. And there the things went wrong. I ended up with no sound at all so I tried to reinstall alsa again but with no luck.

basicaly what I did after following the guide was: sudo apt-get install alsa-base alsa-utils. sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-sound-base //and choose alsa

but still, for example:
$ alsamixer
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory
$ /etc/init.d/alsa-utils start
* Setting up ALSA... [ OK ]

but no alsa process at all. $ aplay -l aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found. It seems to me like sound card drivers are gone..

General :: SSH - Forwarding Only Select Ports Make 1 Passthrough?

Dec 2, 2010

Right now I have a VPS that I tunnel through using SSH/Putty/Proxycap. I use it for a certain program which uses a certain port X for authentication, and a different port Y for its data. However, due to certain security protocols I need port X to be somewhat "transparent" so that the IP from the originator will be shown - whilst tunneling data through port Y. The conditions though, are that I cannot just change the X/Y port values in the application itself, these are company specific.

How would I go about doing this? Because right now, my understanding is that if Putty calls for a certain application to go through a socks server, ALL its ports will be directed at that. I want a certain port to be passthrough.

Ubuntu Servers :: Give Power Users Ability To Access All Of Their Folders Without Thrashing Security.

Feb 8, 2011

So, I am looking to implement an FTP server with Isolated Client accounts/directories where a client can only access what's in their directory. I also need to provide my internal user's (content managers) the ability to upload, delete, etc from all of the Client accounts. The simple part is creating the secure client accounts. It's a matter of changing DIR_MODE in adduser.conf to 700 or 770, creating a user, having the FTP server chroot them to their home directory, revoke/restrict shell/ssh access and maybe even slap on some ACL to prevent botched permissions.The hard part is figuring out how to give my power users the ability to access all of their folders without thrashing security.

My first thought was to put all of the client user-groups in a parent group and having my internal users inherit group permissions..but you can't have groups inside of groups.My second thought was to put all of the client users in the same group and prey that the FTP chroot is enough to keep them from poking around but then I have the problem of how do my internal users access other user directories if they are chrooted. Do I create a second server without I create some weird nested homedir structure..I honestly have no idea how to satisfy both requirements (secure client accounts and privileged user accounts). I need my privileged users to authenticate against Active Directory via Likewise open, LDAP, etc and I don't care how the clients authenticate. Though, I would prefer to have both file and FTP-server level protection just to make sure no one can see the other client's data.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: AC3 Passthrough Pulse/Alsa/XBMC - Acer Aspire Revo?

Jun 16, 2010

Is it possible to install XBMC onto Ubuntu Lucid and still have passthrough audio to a connected receiver (i.e. a workaround with Pulse)? I have an Acer Aspire Revo R1600 connected via HDMI to my Onkyo reciever. I am able to get desktop sounds and play MP3 files from XBMC, but passthrough has been a bear. If I tell Pulse that my sound device is analog, for some reason I can get XBMC to pass through audio. However, I would like to keep system sounds and have the passthrough ability if it's possible. As I understand it (from about two weeks of fidgeting) this is a limitation of Pulse and it's lack of pass through support. It seems so simple. I've tried multiple different .asoundrc configirations none of which have gotten me there. I've upgraded Alsa. I'd rather not run XBMC live if I dont have to. I'd like to have the ability to have a workstation for when I need it. I've upgraded to the latest NVIDIA driver available from their website - 195.36.31.

Fedora :: Audio In - Audio Out Passthrough - Manage The Volume ?

May 18, 2011

The workstation is running FC14.

I have the audio out of the media machine passed into the line in on my workstation. It's just handly to have the audio pass in this way so that i can manage the volume or headphones or whatever from one machine.

This worked, and worked well, for a very long time. I recently reinstalled the workstion, FC14 still. After the reinstall, my passthrough doesn't work.

If i start up some media on the media machine, and then open up the volume control on the workstation, i can see the volume meter moving along with the audio, but nothing plays out of my speakers.

Ubuntu :: Update Details In Cli ?

Sep 23, 2010

Is there a way to see details for a packet before updating it?

Like, if you do:

It will give you a list of packets that can be updated, but you don't know to what version and why.

How can I fund out, before updating, what is the version that the new packet will have.

Here I am talking about updates made from the command line.

On a Desktop system, you have that nice list in update manager, and if you click on an item you can see the new version and some details (what will fix, links..)

How can I find these info in cli?

General :: Get Processor Details Without Using Information From Bios?

Jul 31, 2011

is there a way to retrieve the processor model without taking information from bios? I don't know which processor is really mounted. I want to set up the right processor timing, but I don't know the processor type. Every time I change the timing for the processor in BIOS another processor type is determined (I should be an Athlon XP +1500, I think, but I don't know really).

I think with less /proc/cpuinfo the results depends on the timing that is set in bios. So could you tell me how I can find out which processor is really mounted?
