Server :: Command Mtr Access As Normal System User
Oct 23, 2010
I am using vicidialnow 1.2 VERSION: 2.0.4-122 and BUILD: 81011-0855 (CEntos Based Dialer). In all the way, it is working fine. I want to give the access of command /usr/sbin/mtr to a Normal System USer, which is not working according to my wish. I have make the entry in as sudo or make the soft link of /usr/sbin/mtr to /bin. But all in vain. And i am not in the condition to give the root access to the user.
I need to access sdc2 & sdc4 from SUSE, have shared the partitions already but i am unable to write data there. I checked permissions, it says only owner can change the permission. I need to get rw access for a normal user. Have chmod it already but it didnt work.
I have a question that i want to make a normal user to execute the commands which the root user is able to execute, say if i have a user named siru and when i logged in using siru i cannot run commands like tracert,nmap@loccalhost and all but i can run when i have logged into root account so my question is how to make siru to run the command tracert,nmap@localhost.I have even edited the .bash_profile of siru's home directory from
# .bash_profile # Get the aliases and functions if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
Because I have a flaky wireless device, I occasionally get a hung connection and this script gets things running again in just a few seconds except obviously the boldfaced item, as it still tries to run in the root directory and gives errors:
Configuration file "/root/.kde/share/config/knetworkmanagerrc" not writable. Please contact your system administrator.
So I am not sure how to get knetworkmanager to run as me, the user ubuntu in the /home/ubuntu directory
#!/bin/bash service network-manager stop sleep 1 killall -9 knetworkmanager
I'm trying to start an Oracle Integration server as user "oracle" at system startup and my approach was to place a couple of lines in /etc/rc.localsu oracle/home/oracle/startallSomething is not quite right about this as it seems to leave some processes owned by root.
I have found so many ways for root user to execute commands in so many possible path locations - but having difficulties on executing commands as normal user - during start up.This is what i've got for /etc/rc.d/rc.local script:Code:su -l user && (/bin/sh svc_cmd.sh &)But the command doesn't run at all...
I'm setting up Ubuntu Karmic on my sister's old computer for my nephew, he's quite young so my sister asked to install some content filtering. I'll first setup an OpenDNS account and I've installed and managed to get dansguardian and squid working on a virtual machine to try it out. so far it's working pretty well, but I need to secure it form the inside out.
I was thinking of blocking specific outbound ports so he could not bypass the proxy. because by default the firefox configuration can be easily changed. so I have a couple of questions.
1. is it possible to block outgoing ports on Ubuntu? 2. is that the best method? 3. is there anything else I should be aware of to prevent subversion?
lastly, this question is probably unrelated to this board but I've set up a cron job to update a dynamic ip with OpenDNS, the problem is that the password is in clear text in the user's crontab, can I play with permissions? is it possible to run the job under a root account and deny read/write access to a normal user?
I have a problem with GUI under SuSE. As root I can enter but as normal user I can't. So the splash occurs I put user name and password but the system try to enter and later it comes back. I try from CLI, I make startx from command line, the same situation. Sometime the system informs me about a error (a temporary file from /tmp(.X0~ )I must remove, I did but next time it tells me that it can't load one module (it gives me a number).
I want to simply mount an ext4 file-system onto a normal mount point in Ubuntu (/media/whereever), as read-writable for the current logged-in user, i.e. me.
I don't want to add anything into /etc/fstab, I just want to do it now, manually. I need super-user privileges to mount a device, but then only root can read-write that mount. I've tried various of the mount options, added it into fstab, but with no luck.
My X server restarts as soon as I log in as a regular user. Root user has access. I can log in both root and normal user in terminal and over SSH. I tried rebuilding and installing the proprietary NVIDIA driver, as it builds it's own config file for X. I've had no previous problems with X on this system. The last major change to the system before the last log out was the installation of MCNP5. MCNP5 was installed under the regular user; no root privledges were needed.
I have a system running with few users and servers (apache/mysql/postfix). After extracting one tar archive in '/home' none of my users are being able to access their home directory. Even other system users (like www-data/mysql) are also not being able to access any directory. Only root can access the system. I have checked file permissions, many files/directories are set to 777 rest are 755.
I would like to use the dd command to make a low level copy of a hard drive. How do you access the dd command in Linux Mint? I am going to install the source and target in the computer, boot up to Linux Mint with a Bootable CD and then copy one drive to the other.
I am trying to access the cvs; I issue following commands :
After several minute later.....
ssh: connect to host cvs.tuxbox.org port 22: No route to host cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)
I get above response. In past many occasion I access this cvs repository without any problem but now without any change in client (in my computer) the whole system kicking cvs command out altogether. I wonder what gone wrong suddenly? I manage to update the same repository using cvs update; never had any problem before in past.
Is any one came across such sudden change in cvs access.
I am new to Linux and need to add user access to a particular directory on a Linux server (SUSE 9.1).I am able to access the directory via telnet however I do not know the commands to add the user. userBFA needs readwrite access to the SMF directory. Please let me know if any additional information is needed.
I have configured proftp. I want to access by the particular user. I have configured file, but not able to login. message getting login failed.
[root@localhost ftp]# vi /etc/proftpd.conf # Use this to excude users from the chroot DefaultRoot ~ !adm # Use pam to authenticate (default) and be authoritative AuthPAMConfig proftpd AuthOrder mod_auth_pam.c* mod_auth_unix.c
I have a file server on my network. It is accessed mainly by linux machines throught NFS, but sometimes I need to access it from windows, and I managed to get Samba up and running with only one share with no password, which is what I want.My users have their "private" folders which are just chmodded 700, and under NFS it works fine, but on samba I get, of course, access denied.How can I configure samba so that it asks a password to access those directory? They can become separate shares, and have their own username and passwords (not the ones in /etc/passwd in the server), I don't care.
I want to be able to assign the group "readers" read access to guests/c1 but it says access denied. but it shows r-x acsess. i want to be able to control who has read access and not just give it to everybody.
Am using Suse 10.2 for internet and e-mail server. currently all my users have access to the internet if they know how to setup their web browsers. how do i deny some users internet access so that a user can only access his/her e-mail but not internet.
