Slackware :: SSH - Warning "host Key Is Not Cached In Client Machine" - Connect From The Internet

Mar 7, 2010

1. I can connect to my slack 13 laptop via PuTTY on my GF's windows laptop. Can I actually copy things from my laptop to her machine using 'scp', or is PuTTY just used for browsing my linux filesystem on a windows machine? Google has been telling me about some software called 'WinSCP', which can copy files over, but I was just wandering if i can do this anyway using PuTTY?

2. The first time i did connect to my laptop from my GF's laptop (and also my ubuntu desktop) I get the warning about the host key is not cached in client machine("the server's rsa2 key fingerprint is: ssh-rsa XXXX xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx: etc etc). I understand why this happens, but I have no idea where to find this value on my host laptop. I can find the actual key, but not the fingerprint (i.e. the xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx" etc). i blindly typed "yes" to get SSH working?

3. When i connect from the internet (rather than over my home network) will i need some kind of 'shell login account' to do this cuz i dont have a static IP. ie i'd like to do 'ssh' rather than 'tom@123.432.32.23'? Where or how can i make this happen?

Networking :: Isolating A VMware Virtual Machine From It's Host But Still Alowing Internet Access

Oct 31, 2009

I have a WindowsXP virtual machine which I need to isolate from the host machine completely (have the host act as a bridge but not be visible on the IP layer at all.) It still needs to have Internet access. Obviously it has to be able to contact the router but I would like to be able to block port 80 (or even just block all SYN packets addressed to the router.) I also want to allow port forwarding from the router to the virtual machine. I can use basic iptables but this is way beyond me.

The host OS is probably going to be Debian Lenny but this is not built yet so if someone can recommend a different distro which is as lightweight as possible but will support VMWare, iptables and tcpdump then that would be great. I was thinking of Slackware but I have not used it in ages and from what I can remember their is no real package management.

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 Won't Allow Client Computers To Connect To The Internet

Jan 23, 2011

This is my first attempt at a server, and I running Ubuntu 10.04 server. I had to reconfigure my network, so now I am attempting to use it as a server. I have a Linksys WRT54G2 connecting various machines-- Windows XP, Ubuntu builds, and LinuxMint 10 Julia.

The long and the short of it is that the server connects to the Internet-- I can get updates and install programs via terminal. The server also connects to the router, as tested by pings. The client computers all ping back and forth nicely, and I can access the file share via FTP from the local side and externally (this is part of a larger network).

How can I get it so that my client computers can access the Internet through the router and server?

OpenSUSE Network :: Connect 11 Machine To The Internet?

Feb 24, 2010

So here is what I am trying to do. I want to connect my Open Suse 11 machine to the internet. I am almost there.

1. I configured my network card and eth0 is up.

2. I configured my DSL with user name and password and I am authenticated.

3. An IP address is assigned to me and the DNS servers are retrieved.

However I cannot ping or visit any website I use the YAST automatic configuration and kinternet to connect. Here are the gritty details


I do see that kinternet has trouble reading /etc/resolv.conf. It says 'permission denied' although read permissions are set on both /sbin/route and the path that it links to. This should not matter however since the existing entries are already there and valid. I also tried to turn off the firewall suspecting it could be a problem.

So I am being authenticated successfully ( verified with the logs ); assigned an IP; the route seems ok; firewall seems ok. But I cannot browse or do internet things I have been tweaking settings for 3 days now and all seems in vain. Do enlighten me on what I am doing wrong. I bet its something silly that I overlooked. I have had success configuring the same thing in red hat linux and browsing the internet without trouble. Is there something OpenSuse specific that I am missing ?

Slackware :: Install -current Without Internet On Main Machine?

Feb 23, 2010

I've been playing around with slackware a little bit in the past few weeks and it's been interesting. I do find, however, that people like to keep up to date with the -current version, and sadly I can't do that so easily because I live in the middle of nowhere and my only internet is at work. So, I'm looking for a way to download the -current slackware packages and make it into a slackware installation disc (DVD), but I have no idea where to begin - quite literally, I don't know where to find theofficial slackware -current files. I guess after that I have to figure out how to make it into a CD, but that's ok for now

Slackware :: Suddenly Lost Several Binaries And Wicd 'couldn't Connect To DBus Client'

Jun 19, 2011

I was playing around with bash scripting and the last thing I remember doing was checking for suid root files. However now I cannot launch sbopkg, tpfand etc and the binaries are nowhere to be seen. I was experimenting with the sticky bit for tpfand so I could load it as a normal user.

chmod u+s /usr/sbin/tpfand
chmod u-s /usr/sbin/tpfand
However now tpfand is no long in /usr/sbin. But a whereis produces the following results.

tpfand: /etc/tpfand.conf /etc/tpfand.conf~ /usr/share/tpfand

The same applies for sbopkg, which I have not touched. I think this problem is also related to the wicd error stating it cannot connect to DBus client From these symptoms has anybody experienced anything like this before from tinkering?

General :: Using Netconfig With Slackware 13.37 To Connect To The Internet

Jun 17, 2011

I successfully installed the latest version of slackware, but much to my chagrin it does not auto-connect itself to the internet like my crunchbang does. I read a little from ch.5 of the slackware book, so I know what command to run, but I don't know what to do after running netconfig. I'm using crunchbang right now to get access to the forums, so I know my internet works with this computer. I tried to set up a DHCP connection, but that didn't do anything. So I have two questions:

1.) How do I tell if I have a Static-IP, DHCP, or Loopback connection?

2.) Can I use Crunchbang to get the information I will need, since it connects to the internet like a pro?

Slackware :: Connect To Internet With Wireless Adapter?

Jun 10, 2011

I recently moved out of state and don't have access to the net, however the neighbor of where I am staying is nice enough to let me leech off of her network till I get going. I know next to nothing about slackware and wireless networks since I have never had to mess with it. I have done my reading and have gotten this far.

1) wirelss card is installed and recognized, its a PCI b/g card that uses the ath5 module. The module is loaded and seems to be working.

2) I have heard wicd is easy so I installed it from /extra and it found my essid and accepted the wep password and it says connected at 45% and shows an IP.

however when I launch firefox or try to ping out nothing happens.
