I will be relocating to a permanent residence sometime in the next year or two. I've recently begun thinking about the best way to implement a home-based network. It occurred to me that the most elegant solution might be the use of VM technology to eliminate as much hardware and wiring as possible.My thinking is this: Install a multi-core system and configure it to run several VMs, one each for a firewall, a caching proxy server, a mail server, a web server. Additionally, I would like to run 2-4 VMs as remote (RDP)workstations, using diskless workstations to boot the VMs over powerline ethernet.The latest powerline technology (available later this year) will allow multiple devices on a residential circuit operating at near gigabit speed, just like legacy wired networks.
In theory, the above would allow me to consolidate everything but the disklessworkstations on a single server and eliminate all wired (and wireless) connections except the broadband connection to the Internet and the cabling to the nearest power outlets. It appears technically possible, but I'm not sure about the various virtual connections among VMs. In theory, each VM should be able to communicate with the other as if it was on the same network via the server data bus, but what about setting up firewall zones? Any internal I/O bandwidth bottlenecks? Any other potential "gotchas", caveats, issues? (Other than the obvious requirement of having enough CPU and RAM).Any thoughts or observations welcome, especially if they are from real world experience in a VM environment. BTW--in case you're wondering why I'm posting here, it's because I run Debian on all my workstations/servers (running VirtualBox as a VM for Windows XP on one workstation).
I want to use imap account settings in MS outlook 2003/2007 with backup end Sendmail server. When i configure imap settings in MS outlook 2007 it shows mails are coming from Sendmail server , but another local Personal folder attched with outlook client. I have changed my settings so that every send items mail are coming under imap send-items folder ,but that extra folder stilli in place. I do not see any option how to remove this extra folder from my PST list.? As this never comes with if we are using MS Exchange.. Is there any way i can change my local delivery bydefault with IMAP folder only and save my Contact in IMAP Folder?
I have one server at home, connected through a router that gives me a static IP:192.168.1.2 - My PC192.168.1.3 - CentOS serverI enabled the port 80 into router forwarding system and I can connect properly to CentOS server, using the IP my internet provider gives me. My router automatically forwards a changed IP to my dyndns.com account so I can also access the server through a domain name (I pay to have it linked to one of my domains).My next step is to configure the mail server (dovecot) , so I can send emails from my local server(192.168.1.3).I was wondering if anyone has any tutorial links or tips to have the mail server configured through a home internet provider + home router.
I've been able to make my server connect to my clients but not able to share the internet connection. I've been searching around but haven't come across an answer yet. Hoping someone here will point me in the right directiong. I have the following setup running. I'm trying to make an internet connection go through my server but haven't been able to get it to work.
I'm sure this is possible... I'm just not sure how. Yet! I have three machines. One is at home behind my firewall and has a dynamic IP. That's fine as I don't really want to open any ports on my home firewall. The second is at work sitting behind the firewall there- and I'm not even going to ask for approval to NAT an IP to my PC at work :-).
The third is in a data center far away. I only have a shell account on this server but other than that shell account not being root, I can do most anything I like with that account. What I would like to do is SSH to this server simultaneously from my home and work PCs and, via this third machine, make them talk.
This is pure geekery so it doesn't matter what they say to each other; I just want to make them talk. Maybe one uploads a file and the other just pulls down that file. Maybe one opens a FIFO on the remote server and starts writing to it while the other starts snarfing that data. In fact, I like this latter idea best, I think. How would you do it? What scripts (fired by cron if need be since I'm ostensibly away from at least one of the PCs at any given time) would you use?
I work for a church, with office staff of about 10 people.
We want to set-up a server to store all the office information, (which is now scattered all over the place).
The idea is to give individuals a partition on the server(password protected). There is database software that needs to be accessed by 5 people( it runs on MS Access). Most of the document are MS Word. Of course you can tell me of a better way to do this than my idea.
how to set-up this network. I have to submit my info to church leadership. it will save us buy Window Server and 10 CAL (that ZAR 10k).
I have been able to find enough information that I need to enable 'time-udp' in /etc/xinetd.d/ But there isn't an entry for time-udp. How do I enable time-udp (Time of Day server) on a Red Hat system? It's RHEL 5.6 64bit.
I have a network consisting mostly of Windows Vista and 7 clients and an Ubuntu server. The server provides both the DHCP and NTP services through dhcp3-server and openntpd. In my dhcpd.conf, the subnet is declared as follows:
The clients don't seem to be using the NTP server though. When I capture the network traffic with Wireshark during the DHCP process, I also see no mention of the NTP option in the DHCP offer message. I am not quite sure if the clients would have to specifically request that option to receive it or if I have to make another configuration to offer the option.
in my office we are using redhat server and 20 windows client machine. some times while viewing the server stored files or not able to view.yesterday i saw a problem all the files are showing but not able to open a single fine after restarting the computer iam able to open the file.
I have setup openldap and samba for authenticating Windows and Linux clients on my server. They are working fine. Windows users are getting authenticated through server as Primary Domain Controller and Linux clients directly from Openldap directory. But I have little problem that is I want to mount home folders created on server to be available on clients so clients get a centralized storage with some quota on both Linux and Windows clients. Can you help me please how can I do that.
I would like to install Linux based AntiVirus Server with Windows Clients. As per the existing setup, all Windows machines are using "demo" or "evaluation" copy of antivirus & all antivirus softwares are not same on all windows computers.
Someone is using Trend-Micro ,other is using Avast. Due to above listed problem,i want to implement Linux Based Free AntiVirus Server,which will be connected directly on the internet. The Linux AntiVirus server will updated it's database from Internet automatically.
Inside the Linux Server,all Windows PC's are connected in a same Local Area Connection. All windows XP computers will fetch the updated data from the Anti Virus Server. Also,i am searching MAIL RESPONDER OR POP UP Windows,when any virus found on any client machine. My company needs Cost Effective solution & Linux is the best solution for this.
I want to replace Windows AD with SAMBA I want to know what policies restrictions I can get in SAMBA as compared to windows AD - whether it is possible to restrict clients not to change IP, access cdrom or control panel.
Actually i have to make one share folder on linux in such way that user should only read the documents from shared folder and they should not take prints of that folder.could any one telme what server i should use.?samba or nfs?how can i stop client users to stop taking prints from that shared folder.
I'm trying to give some windows users a permanent connection to a samba share behind a firewall over the public Internet. I know I can give them access with something like winscp (which they have done) but really I'd like to do it with a VPN so it seems seamless to the user. However I have no idea how to set up the server to support this and am finding the documentation a bit confusing. The samba share is on a Debian box and the firwewall is a Linksys WRT54GL.
securing VNC connections by tunneling the connection over SSH. However, from the server perspective it will still allow an unsecured connections and you're relying on the client to setup up the SSH tunneling. Is there a way to configure the Linux server to now allow connection over an unsecured channel?
I have installed mysql package in ubuntu 9.04 .I have also installed the query browser software can someone tell me how to configure the connection dialogue box in query browser. also my friend is using ubuntu 8.04 when he writes mysql in terminal he can directly execute database queries there but when i try the same thing on 9.04 i get an error as "Access denied for user 'ravi'@'localhost' (using password: NO)"
I have tftp-server running on Centos 5. Clients which are on the same subnet as the server are able to get and put without problems. I have a client that is across the internet that is having trouble getting files from my tftp server. A tcpdump reveals that the client is requesting the same file over and over again. In /var/log/messages, I am see the following error repeated over and over until the client finally gives up.
localhost in.tftpd: tftpd: read: No route to host
i want to configure an Open LDAP server in Ubuntu....and also want it to connect to its clients, i have two machines for testing,one for client & one for server, i followed the tutorials on ubuntu documentation,but did not succeed in making either the client or the server,
I just installed SLES 11.2 X86_64 and have SMB Server started after adding 2 lines to smb.conf:1. NTMLv2 = Yes2. name resolve order = wins bcast host lmhostsThere are also 02 new DWORD lines I add to Win7 clientsHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesLanManWorkstationParameters 1.DomainCompatibilityMode = 12. DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0Of course a few number of modifications I made from Yast to enable SMB Server and Client, and bcast as well. Now I am able to join my Linux Domain without error at first reboot from win7, but it seems spending a long time about 30 secs for auth. even I test on a very fast network system, all with core quad 3GHZ CPU and 4GB DDR2I would like to mention here that before I made the above changes I did a lot of different modifications onto my win7 clients (I found many suggestions online), and all seems mess up and never work; Then I had to reinstall win7 from scratch and just add 02 lines as above, but it works.
I am trying to set up an X2go server, that lets clients log in on a remote server. the idea is that a school uses old computers as thin clients, and a small server loads an image onto the clients, and then lets them log into a big server in germany using X2go. Does anyone know where i can find a guide or some documentation that would show me how to do
