Software :: Access Computer A's Shares As Well As The Third Computer, The Aforementioned Computers Cannot Access Computer B

May 28, 2011

I have three computers in my network, but two will be mentioned. Computer A is a Linux Mint 9/Windows 7 dual-boot, and I have just installed Mandriva Free 2010.2, which I will call Computer B.

Now my main problem is that Computer B, while it can see and access Computer A's shares as well as the third computer, the aforementioned computers cannot access Computer B. The message was: "Unable to mount location/Failed to mount Windows share." Now, the SMB protocol was used because of the third computer and Computer A have Windows OSs installed in them.

What I originally wanted was that I can share Computer B's NTFS partition, namely Documents and Downloads, to the other computers. And I can't do that, because of the error message.

What I can do, however, is use Computer B to view shares from the other two computers (Computer A, as an example). By my experiences in Linux Mint, I understand that I'd have to mount my Windows partitions in order to share them. I don't even know if my NTFS drive in Computer B is mounted, though that is what was described.

Ubuntu Networking :: The Phone Can Access The Internet Through The Computer Unable To Get Access To Https Sites, Like Webmails

Dec 31, 2010

I managed to configure my W890i phone to get access to internet through an ubuntu-based computer. It's very easy to use the phone to give internet access to the computer, but the opposite is quite more tricky. For that I've done the following

----On the phone---

-Set the USB network option to "through computer", so that the phone uses the computer's internet connection and not the opposite.

-Decide and set "Shared Network" parameters: user, pasword and workgroup.

-In "conectivity-> internet connection" set "allow local network" to "yes"

----On Ubuntu 10.04---

-Install samba, samba-client, smbfs, smbclient, firestarter and dhcp3-server

-Configure Samba (System-> Administration-> Shared folders): same workgroup as in the phone, add new user (the phone), passwd this new user. In my case the user was called "w890i" and the password given was the same.

-Once the phone is connected to the computer through USB (then select "phone mode"), a new connection appears in NetworkManager: usb0.The aim is to create a shared network that gives internet access to this device. Edit the IPv4 parameters of this new connection, set them to Manual and give an IP adress ( and a subnet mask (; the rest of the fields are left empty.Connect this network.

-Set firestarter to use dhcp3: sudo ln -sf /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server /etc/init.d/dhcpd

-Launch firestarter and follow the wizard. Set "allow internet shared connection", choose the device for the primary internet access, and then the device for the shared network (usb0). Then change the settings for firestarter: activate DHCP for local network, set IP to the one we gave before (

-Open dhcp3-server config file sudo gedit /etc/default/dhcp3-server And set INTERFACES="usb0"

-Set the policies of firestarter: in incoming connections, allow connections from the IP adress given to the phone ( Then add rules for the ports that need to be open for this connection. I opened HTTP, HTTPS, SMB, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, IMAPS, DHCP for all the connections in the local network.

-Apply policies and start the firewall.


After all this, the phone can access the internet through the computer. Two problems appeared:

1. I couldn't get access to https sites, like webmails. The phone gave a "communication error". But then I tried with Opera instead of the browser built in the phone's firmware, and I could finally get to https sites.

2. I couldn't retrieve mail, neither POP nor IMAP nor IMAPS. I thought it was a firmware problem again, and I tried out several mobile phone email clients written in java, but none of them worked.

So this is at the moment the problem. If I connect from the phone to the internet directly through 3G, the email clients work for all my accounts. I don't think it's a firewall problem, because the ports are opened for this connection

Debian :: Can't Access 2nd Dvd Drive From Computer?

Jan 22, 2011

My problem is that the OS does not show my 2nd DVD drive (slave to the first one).I tried editing fstab as per man pages, and as per several instructions I got using google, but to no avail. In the end, I reinstalled Debian with a data CD in the 2nd DVD drive, hoping that the presence of media would "force" Debian to recognize the drive - but this did not help. In the end,as I am completely clueless, please help me to help the OS recognize and provide access to the 2nd drive.

Here are a few things that can help explain better- > 1. see the attached picture file for "inside" the Computer. Note the Slave DVD drive does not appear.Screenshot of Computer Icon on Desktop showing that only the Primary DVD drive is visible - and not the Slave DVD drive.

Ubuntu :: How To Set Up Remote Access To Computer

May 3, 2010

My home network consists of two computers that share one internet connection via a router. I have a desktop computer that runs Ubuntu (Karmic), connected via ethernet; and a netbook that runs Windows 7 (will be Ubuntu, eventually), which connects wirelessly. Both computers have multiple user accounts. What I would like to do is access my account on the Ubuntu desktop via the netbook while my wife is using the desktop with her account (or enable her to access her account on the desktop while I am using it). I looked into VNC, but it, apparently, only supports the active desktop. So, if someone connected to the computer while it was in use, they would be looking at the other user's desktop. Is this a misconception on my part?

So, I have 3 questions:
-From the netbook, how can I log into my account on the desktop and just get a command-line shell?
- From the netbook, how can I log into my account on the desktop and actually have access to my Gnome desktop?
- If I leave my house with the netbook, and want to log into my desktop machine across the internet (CLI and/or Gnome), how can I do that?

Ubuntu :: Access A Computer With No Monitor?

Jun 26, 2011

my monitor broke and I can't get a new one for about a week, and there are files I need on my PC. I was wondering if I could move those files to a memory stick by using only the tty1 CLI, or better yet, get access to the PC via my laptop. How would I do this?

Could I use remote desktop? (My previous experience with remote desktop didn't go well, but maybe since the PC and the laptop are on the same network it would be easier?)

Fedora :: Access A Remote Computer By Tunnelling VNC Through Ssh?

Apr 11, 2011

I'm trying to access a remote computer by tunnelling VNC through ssh. I've used VNC for years, but never through ssh. Both computers are running Fedora 14, installed by me. Doing a general Internet search, I found three articles, and they all had basically the same instructions. However, they don't seem to work. Here's what I did. Call my local computer "computer A," and the remote computer "computer B." I installed vncserver on B using yum:

(1) yum install tigervnc-server
(2) Then on B I started the server:

vncserver The first time you do this, you're asked to set up a password. Everything else was automatic. I did nothing to /etc/sysconfig/vncservers.

(3) With vncserver running on B, on A I issued the following command:

ssh -L 5901:localhost:5901 username-on-B@IP-address-for-B After giving the password, this logged me into a terminal session on B.

(4) At that prompt on B, I issued this command:

vncviewer localhost:1 According to the tutorials I found, this is the last step. The desktop window on B should open. It does not work. The following error was given: vncviewer: unable to open display "" What am I doing wrong? How does one tunnel VNC through ssh?

Ubuntu :: Missing Panel - Can't Access Anything On My Computer

Feb 21, 2010

I'm missing my top (and only) panel, I can't access anything on my computer now except firefox and movieplayer since they are what comes up when I restart, I guess that's because I opted to save my running applications during my last session. I also did some updates... I've read a couple other posts about the same thing but they were in xubuntu and none of the fixes are valid for me...

I'm running ubuntu 9.10 just installed it last week, on my acer one netbook. everything was dandy until tonight when I rebooted and found that my panel is gone... Right click on the desktop shows no way to get it back, no route to applications or add panel. I didn't do anything to get rid of it it's just gone... Is this a known issue with the updates or kernel does anyone know?

Debian :: Access Files On Alternative Computer?

Mar 9, 2010

I have a desktop installed with Debian Squeeze and ALL my files are stored there, and is always on. Everyone has an account on this computer.

Each of us have laptops (Debian/openSUSE with KDE4) and sometimes need to use the files that is stored on the desktop. Currently, we are transferring the required files via usb drives.

All the computers are connected to a wireless router that connects us to the internet.

So, to enable all laptops can access the desktop's file, should I

- install smb to all the computers or

- install ssh for the task.

- or are there any better way.

Need to ensure,

- security as ALL my personal info is on the desktop

- easy to use and prefer gui than console as I have young kids using the system.

OpenSUSE Install :: Access Computer In Local Network?

Apr 3, 2010

The desktop computer stores most of our family's files and is mostly powered on, installed with Debian/openSUSE (KDE4).

We have 2 more portable (also Linux, KDE4) computers and frequently need to access files stored in the desktop. Currently file transferred is by usb thumbdrive which is troublesome.

The computers are all connected to a wireless router that provides access to the internet.

Reading/goolging and understand that there are many ways to share files to the extend that I am lost - Samba, NFS, SSH .....

My problem is to find out: What is the best way to access computers within the local network? "Best" here means:

- Secure

- Relative ease to setup

- Easy to use, file access with GUI (file manager?) as the entire family is using the computers.

Networking :: Cannot Access The Web Server From The Computer Running Apache?

Aug 3, 2010

I set up my first web server and it works flawlessly -when accessed from external network or from other computers on my lan. However, I cannot access it from the computer where the server is run on. I have found numerous people with similar problems but the flavour I am experiencing is somewhat different and no solutions I have found apply to it.

I have two network interfaces on my server, eth0 (public static IP connected to internet directly) and eth1 connected to LAN range. The server is It is connected directly to the internet and serves as a SNAT for other comps on the lan.I added " www_server_com" to the /etc/hosts on the server and also on the other machines on the LAN. All the other machines can open website without any problem.HOwever, the server itself only opens website if the address islhost. Internal IP, i.e. gets a time out and so does www_server_com ( I cant use dots as I do not have more than 15 posts on the forum )Here is the firewall script I am using.

General :: Gnome - Cannot Access Computer Or Trash Locations

Mar 4, 2010

I have built gnome-2.28.1 from scratch (source) with gnome I compiled GDM and many other programs. GDM is starting fine, I can enter my user on the login prompt and login without problems. When I'm in the desktop I can't access the Computer or Trash locations clicking on the icon or even through Nautilus, the same error happening:
Error: Operation not supported.

I tried debugging by hand running the follow command: gvfs-ls trash://
Which tells me exactly Error: Operation not supported.

On my ubuntu system, lsof | grep gvfs returns a lot of gvfsd* daemons, like gvfsd-computer and gvfsd-trash. On my Scratch system lsof | grep gvfs doesn't return anything. My prefix used when building gnome was /opt/gnome and sysconfdir on /etc/gnome/2.28.1. lsof shows me that D-Bus is running, actualy gdm starts gnome with dbus-launch --exit-with-session gnome-session.

And inside my /etc/dbus-1/session-local.conf I have:
<!DOCTYPE busconfig PUBLIC
"-//freedesktop//DTD D-BUS Bus Configuration 1.0//EN"
"[URL]"> <busconfig>
<!-- Search for .service files in /usr/local -->

Well, I done many tweaks around and still can't display gvfs location, what I think is very odd is that lsof doesn't returns any gvfsd* daemon running.

OpenSUSE Network :: Boot For Remote Computer Access Involve RDP

I'm new to the principle of network boot and I was wondering if this is possible. Computer A runs openSUSE. Computer B is an older, slower computer. Computer A and computer B are connected using an Ethernet cable that supports two-way transport. Can I use network boot on computer B to use the OS on computer A remotely while computer A is being used too? Does it involve RDP? Will the remote user experience noticeable lags/delays? What do I need to install on computer A to make this happen?
