have setup proftpd via gadmin, all is well and is activated.This is where im being stupid - what setting do i use in my ftp prog (filezilla)??
host: ive put my ip address (77.xx.xxx.xx) user name and password
However, i have a number of computers on my network, obviously when i try to ftp into my server how does it know which one to connect to? or is this not required.i need to get this working within the next few hours, or ill be in do-dos.
I'm running a ProFTP 1.3.3 server on a CentOS 5.5.What has come to my mind in terms of security is to have the server disabling / deactivating account that enters the wrong password, lets say three times.Using MaxLoginAttempts only limits the possible retries on a open connection.
until 2 weeks ago I had o.S11.3 on both my Siemens and Asus laptops. I have installed NX No Machine. ( I know it's not open source,I am using the free version). With commandline ( root) /usr/NX/bin/nxclient I was able to connect to the other machines. I got Qt: Locales not supported on X server, the NX menu popped up and I was able to connect by inserting resp codes. After fresh install of o.S.11.4 on the ASUS the commandline (root) answers:
xlib: connection to":0.0" refused by server xlib: No protocol specified nxclient: cannot connect to X server:0.0
The ASUS can still be reached from the other machines (one with o.S.11.3,the third one with o.S.11.2 ) SSH ( Lan)connections are all working forth and back between the machines, even to and from Win XP, however only from Win 7 on the ASUS, but that's a Win7problem. Comparing the installed xorg-x11- server-extra : on o.S. 11.3 Additional X servers ( Xmdx,Xephir,Xnest,Xvfb ) ,on o.S.11.4 the Xvfb is missing, might that be the reason?
in my office all users connect to internet via VPN.in our office there is one special server that we want when users connected via VPN,users can not connect to the special server and when users are not connect to via VPN can connect to that server.
I have been using proftp for about 8 months. After getting the configuration right, it worked perfectly. It is only used intermittently, so I don't know for sure when the problems started, but I suspect it was triggered by a recent OS upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bit). I have proftp set up so that TLS is required on both the data and control channels. The problem is that, after successful login, the server seems to be terminating the session because the client (FileZilla) is attempting to renegotiate something (probably the TLS). The client settings didn't change, nor did the server settings.
I have tried switching off the TLSRequired flag, and am then able to establish a non-secure FTP session which works (but that does not meet my requirements). I wondered whether the OS upgrade had somehow invalidated my TLS certificates, but the symptoms don't seem consistent with that cause. The TLS part of my proftpd.conf file is:
So a while back I was able to mount a directory from my OpenSuse server as a NFS on an Esxi server. After restarting the Esxi server, the NFS became inactive and I was unable to remount it. The error given was that the Esxi client was unable to connect to the Suse server. I was looking into the showmount -a command on the Suse server and it showed the mount point on the Esxi server. Could this be causing the Suse server to reject new attempts to mount the directory? What else can I try to fix this problem? Also I should note that both servers can ping each other.
I have Samba PDC server on CentOS 5..we have 10 thin clients in our network which were working fine previously with the windows Terminal services... Now i have replaced my windows 2003 Domain to Samba Domain Controller.. Is there any why i can connect our thin clients with SAMBA DC in the our environment?
I have a real system user say 'test', created in a number of system groups, up to 3 additional groups (including ftp of course). Its set to the usual standard directory /home/test. But what if I wanted to use /home/test as their home directory but login to what would be unknown to them to be ProFTP to make them go in say [URL] or something random like that, how is this done? Just been through things like this:
How to Nat. I wanted to be able to resolve something like ftp.myfirstdomain.com to 192.168.0.2 Then ftp.mysecond.com to 192.168.0.3
Just as a random example, I know these cannot be done using name based virtual hosts like in Apache. But I got this working internally using my LAN connection and the 2 IP addresses above, with Bind DNS pointing the dns's to those 2 ip addresses respectively. This worked, yet when I tried connecting from my work place to transfer some files, it kept going to the default user's home directory. Just wanted to get this project finished, 2 domains and one public facing IP address.
More for my own posterity than anything else, I thought I'd document here the way to get to eDesktop through linux (debian, ubuntu) at the University of West Florida (UWF), since they appear to only support Windows through their documentation on the University web site, and the link through Argus (the secure web site) doesn't work in Linux. This is sometimes needed to use the University resources (libraries and computer programs) from remote locations, and otherwise a google search is fruitless. I had to have a guy in the computer science department show me how to do it.This may apply for other Universities with similar setups.
I followed this tutorial: http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-us...l-ubuntu-10.04 Minus the Quota for the mailboxes, since I don't really care about that. But I don't think that should cause any problems in the configuration. The server is in my local network.
I tried to connect with Thunderbird and Kmail. Kmal brings up an error message eventually, saying something about a time-out. Squirrelmail says code...
I searched everything & everywhere only to see that more people have that same error message come up with Squirrelmail. From my understanding some have fixed the issue but I couldn't actually find a solution to this.
I am trying (desperately) to setup freeNX so that I can access my Mandriva box from my Macbook over my network. I have great need to be able to do this. Here's the necessary info for you: Mandriva PC: running Mandriva 2010.0 with freeNX installed from the Mandriva repos Macbook: running OS 10.4 with the Nomachine NX Client installed Now, I have followed the setup from the Mandriva wiki as well as the freenx wiki to no avail. I simply cannot connect the Macbook's NX client to the server. I get an authentication failed message. However, I can ssh from the Macbook to the server just fine (that's how I'm getting most of this work done).
When I try to connect to the share from my XP machine, I get a "network path cannot be found" error message.

I'm trying to set up a VPN connection between our CentOS 5.3 server at work and my bosses XP computer at home. At this point, we are kinda locked into Quickbooks. I'm testing the connection from my XP boot at home to see if it works. I can log into our servicemanuals easily enough from XP at home however, the windows takes forever to update. I have the Samba server only listening on port 445 because is seems to work more efficiently at work. I connect to the Samba shares via linux from home and everything works well but, when I try to do anything with the shares from Windows client at home, it's very slow!
I'm thinking that it must have something either to do with the Windows OpenVPN client or the client.conf file. Is there anything I should look at in the .conf file for answers?
I have x11 forwarding enabled in /etc/ssh/sshd_config on a suse 11.2 32 bit box running kde I can open x apps on a windows machine using xming and putty just fine, but when I boot the same machine into suse 11.2 64 bit using kde and try using konsole I get: cannot connect to x server
The command I'm using to log in is: ssh -X -l username host I doubt the problem is with the server I'm logging into or it wouldn't work in windows, not really sure what to look for as I've never had a problem using x11 forwarding from a linux client before only windows ones
i have a problem with one of my PCs which refuses to run the CCLc timer on its screen, i have tried to run the application so many times but every time i run it it does not connect to the server to show the timer automatically as the other PCs do,therefore the client cannot know how much he/she is supposed to pay.this forces us to manually time the clients that are using that PCs.
I have configured server ubuntu 11.04. Everything works fine, but there is a need for some clients to connect local hard drive. What should I do? How and what modules are added to the ltsp-image? How to register in the fstab on the client? Maybe I'm going the wrong way?
I configured openLdap in RHEL5 on virtual achines,everything is working fine, I created a user called ldapuser,in LDAP server and i created a home directory for ldapuser in my LDAP client, now i can able to login to the both Server and client with ldapuser account....
Now here what am expecting is i want to export my server's home directory to the client, i dont want to create home directories manually in the client machine, i googled about that, and it can be done through autofs.....
what need to be done on the client and server side.
I have question about the UNIX sockets. my goal is to connect multiple sockets from a single client to a single server and keep them open...I'm not sure if that is possible to create or not. Do you have any suggestion or an example of code?
I'm running Lucid on a laptop client and a desktop server. The server has windows partitions that I'd like to connect to from the client using nfs over a wireless link on my home network. Is this possible? (I'm currently using samba but find it slow and stalls shutdowns on the client.)I've successfully connected to ubuntu partitions on the server via nfs, but most of the data is on the windows partitions, and must remain there.
