Ubuntu :: Accessing External USB Drives Using NoMachine Client?
Jan 21, 2010
I have an Ubuntu jaunty fileserver. I connect to the machine from time to time using the Nomachine client on windows.Everything is setup and working perfectly, except for one thing. When I acces the server remotely, I cannot access any external USB drives connected to it. The drive mounts fine, and is available when logged on locally to the machine, just not when logged in via Nomachine.
I have done a basic installation for a server.And then I have removed the screen and the keyboard because I have no place for them.I manage the server from my laptop using NX.I am using the root user account as nx user because I can't stop the server with a normal user.
I'm using Nomachine NX client for Windows to remotely connect to my Ubuntu.Every now and then I experience a strange phenomena: the text in the prompt of all open terminal windows becomes black, so it can't be viewed over the black background. Typed commands are also black, but the results are in normal colors. So I can run stuff, but can't see what I'm typing...After I close all open terminal windows and start a new terminal window, everything goes back to normal.
I am building a home server that will host a multitude of files; from mp3s to ebooks to FEA software and files. I don't know if RAID is the right thing for me. This server will have all the files that I have accumulated over the years and if the drive fails than I will be S.O.L. I have seen discussions where someone has RAID 1 setup but they don't have their drives internally (to the case), they bought 2 separate external hard drives with eSata to minimize an electrical failure to the drives. (I guess this is a good idea)I have also read about having one drive then using a second to rsync data every week. I planned on purchasing 2 enterprise hard drives of 500 MB to 1 GB but I don't have any experience with how I should handle my data
I have been spending hours and hours trying to find a "Remote installation for Dummies" ....kind of step-by-step approach. But after several evenings googling and reading. This is how far I got: I have installed FeeNX on my server and after sudo nxserver -- status I get a reply like this:
NX> 100 NXSERVER - Version 2.1.0-72 OS (GPL. using backend: 3.4.0) NX> 110 NX Server is running NX> 999 Bye
so to me that looks like the server process is running. I also installed the windows Nomachine on my laptop and hooked it all up in my local network (so no routers whatsoever) I disabled the firewalls on both my laptop and my server. just in case configured the client for port 22 and the fixed IP address of my server. even imported the users.id_dsa.pub key in the client. long story short: I only get that annoying little error window from Nomachine saying: "Cannot initialize the display service"
I suspect this is not new but I just can't find where it was treated. Maybe someone can give me a good lead.I just want to prevent certain users from accessing CD/DVD drives and all external drives. They should be able to mount their home directories and move around within the OS but they shouldn't be able to move data away from the PC. Any Clues?
I am running Virtualbox with Win XP on Ubuntu 10.04, Everything is mostly ok, but I find two problems. I cannot seem to find a way to access my second (physical) harddrive as well as DVD writer. I have tried to add it to shared folders in Virtual box, but no go. I can , however, access my USB drives ok, after I found out about the Vbox user permissions. But what I do notice is that it seems Ubuntu unmounts the USB drive as soon as Vbox "mounts" it. Is there no way to have these drives mounted simultaneously on both platforms ?
I'm trying to delete directories (long story, Mac temp files there, Windows not cooperating) on a sever connected to a HP 20 Modular Smart Array set up as RAID5. System currently running Windows. I've booted from a 9.10 LiveCD but can't see the external drives. Is it correct that I need to install mdadm to "see" those drives from LiveCD? From a different machine (linux) I can mount the drive using samba like so:
1>i want to know how i can get list of all my client ip address whois accessing my server.either from LAN or WAN. 2>Also if some one changing my pc ip addressing for a while to use internet then how i get to know this that which pc has used my ip....
I want to access ftp server without entering user name and password ,second thing i have create repository on my Installation Server that is redhat os now i have created another server and i want to access that repository so what changes i can do on /etc/yum.repos.d/server.repo file
I use OpenSuse 11.2 and Windows XP. After booting to OpenSuse, I can see NTFS drives are mounted but I am always being asked for a password to access them. Is it possible to access NTFS drives without typing a password? The reason is I created links referring to folders and files stored on the NTFS drives.
I am runnung ubuntu 9.10 desktop edition as a server. I am using a FTP client program to upload some files(index.html, background.png, etc) and everything is fine with that. And currently all my files are in /home/myname/ folder. What I want is whenever I log in with my ubuntu account in the FTP client program, I can actually see the list or contents of the very root directory.
In other word, I can see every folder like /bin, /boot, /etc, /root, so on in the FTP software and I can download it. I don't want to allow to access the parent(or root) directory. Is there any possible way to set up the sutff?
A year ago I put some stuff on my external hard drive and now I'd like to retrieve it. I've upgraded through a couple of versions of Ubuntu since then and now it doesn't work. I saw that this is a frequent problem in the forums but couldn't find a solution.
I want to access files on my external harddrive through GNOME, beyond plugging it into my computer via USB I have no idea what to do next..I think it has something to do with a mount point or the 'mount' command...to summarise, my question is how can I access extern. HardD through GNOME?
I work for a company who has a really closed proxy configuration, and I think that only the port 80 is opened, but with a lot of blocked sites.
I guess that for other cases, like bank sites and others, they opened the 443 port too. But other ports are all closed.
I set up a linux server at home, and I need to access it with SSH. However, I can't access my server directly by its IP number,
I don't know why, but probably it's because some rule in the company's firewall or proxy, right? What I did to trick this was create an account on NO-IP.org, which provides me with a DNS to my host. In this moment, my "network" is something like this:
When I try to connect (by my work PC) with "telnet xxxxx.no-ip.org 80", or with Putty, I get a blank screen, no errors, no nothing.
But when I try to do this on another PC, on another network without proxies, I'm successfull. So I really think that is my company proxy thats blocking this way, am I correct?
So I think that the solution for my problem is to create a tunnel, to transport my SSH connection over an HTTP, through the Port 80.
But is there a way to do this?
It would be something like this:
Is that correct?
If so, how could I do this?
I'm trying for a week now, with programs like http-tunnel, proxy-tunnel, and others. But nothing until now.
So, any ideias how could I could communicate my SSH client at work over a HTTP (port 80) connection, over NO-IP, my modem, my server, HTTP to SSH, and finally my SSH server?
I've searched the forums (250 thread limit) for a fix on this, but all the questions seem unanswered or unrelated. My situation is this: I'm running Ubuntu x64 10.10 'Maverick'. I have a cablemodem connection for my Internet access. I have home network running on DD-WRT with the dreadful Linksys WRT54G series router.
My DD-WRT router is 192.168.1.1, subnet 255.255.255.0. My Linux box is 192.168.1.61, subnet 255.255.255.0.
I have a VyprVPN connection set up successfully on Linux. Mostly everything works great, speed's fine, latency is what I expect it to be. Except... I also run an SSH server to remotely admin the box at port 22, an Apache server running over SSL at port 7001, and a Transmission web client at port 7002 (only secured by basic HTTP realms auth). All of these things worked before I got the VPN working, I'm of course using NAT at the DD-WRT router.
The endresult I am looking for, is to have the security and protection of the VPN (even if it's only perceived) for everything I do on this machine -- EXCEPT on Apache, the Transmission web panel, and the SSH server, which I want to access from the outside world. I have no firewalls running or configured, not even iptables, not even the SPI firewall on DD-WRT. All connections to the aforementioned services from the outside world timeout coming in to the Linux box. They all work from inside my home network (220.127.116.11/24). In case it's needed, he's my routing:
Is it possible to access windows network printers from a VirtualBox WindowsXP client running under Ubuntu 10.10 host? The networking type is NAT. Would Bridged Networking solve the problem? If so, is there a tutorial on how to set up bridged networking for virutual box?
I have a machine acting as a gateway for a private network. While it can ping hosts on that private network, I can't use samba (smbclient or smbmount) to access shares on hosts on the private network from that machine. Other machines on the private network can access shares on other machines - just not the gateway server.
Here's how the gateway is configured:
When I try to connect to ports 139 or 445 (via smbclient or smbmount) the mount() system call times out. As I mentioned above, I can ping those hosts, so UDP packets work but TCP packets seem to get blocked or lost.
I have a redhat server with SAMBA file services. I have copied all the users files into their respective home directories and mapped a network drive to their folders. However, when I try to access a file in those folders the machine reboots itself. There are no error messages or anything, it just reboots!
I would like to access my NSA-220 Plus through the Internet without having computer turned on. I tried to set it up as a FTP server but I was not successful. I tried few tutorials but all allow me to access NSA-220 Plus only within my home network which is not what I want. Also I tried user manual which does not really tell you how to do this.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04, and i recently purchased an tandberg LTO-4 SAS tape drive. I want to access it and backup data on it. Do I simply just connect plug it into the server,and I should be able to backup/transfer data to the tape drive? Or are there intermediate steps before I can do that. Here are some results from commands that I have typed:
I've set up Apache on my Fedora 12 machine and have got it working on my internal IP (localhost/192.168.0.15) however, when I try to access it through my external IP I am taken to my router login page.
What do I need to do to route my external IP to my internal static IP of 192.168.0.15?
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my machine as dual boot using WUBI but on a seperate partition to Windows. Loving it so far, but i cannot get any external drives to mount - i've tried pen drives, camera memory cards and hard drives but nothing comes up.
I have just tried restarting with a pen drive plugged in, and it finally showed something in the computer folder - "memory stick drive" is shown (and my internal CD drive, which i'm not sure was there before.), but i still can't access it and when I try to unmount it gives me the message
