Ubuntu :: Create SSH Tunnel Before Login (Presession)?

Jun 15, 2010

Just give you the background:1) Let's call the two machines, Box A and Box B.2) OpenSSH is running on both machines.3) Key based authentication is setup between two users on these two machines, and both can login into the other with: "ssh user@host" with no problems at all.4) I'm also port tunnelling over SSH to encrypt some traffic between the two machines: "ssh -f -N -L 1000:HOSTNAME:1000 user@HOSTNAME"I can obviously then use "localhost:1000" to connect Box A to port 1000 on Box B securely.However ... and this is my problem ... I want this port tunnelling connection to be automatic when I boot the machine, e.g. "Presession" and "before" a user logs in.I tried adding to gdm/PreSession/Default: "ssh -f -N -L 1000:HOSTNAME:1000 user@HOSTNAME"But the problem then is because the user is not *logged in* at this stage, it can't use the user's private key to connect to the server, and hence can't automatically create the connection.How do I get Box A to automatically create a tunnel over a port to Box B, without any intervention from me, *prior* to any users logging in?

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Create SSH Tunnel

Aug 3, 2011

I wanted to create an ssh tunnel but I do not know what commands to run .. my environment is as follows:
LAN Internet Office LAN
Home PC <-> Linux firewall <-> http server..

According to the above what I figure is that I have an internal web server at my job and I need to create a tunnel to access the web server from my PC in my home. I know I can do a port forwarding with the firewall but I don't want to publish this web server to Internet. My home PC and both servers (firewall and web) are ubuntu. My idea is create a ssh tunnel that forward port 8080 on localhost in my home pc, to the firewall (obviously with public ip), and the the firewall forward to port 80 on office web server at my job. Note that the firewall accepts ssh connections to port 22, same for web server...

Ubuntu Networking :: Create 'Ethernet-over-IP'(or Tunnel) Interface?

Nov 28, 2010

I'm trying to create EoIP interface on ubuntu so i can create a simple tunnel to my mikrotik router. Is there anyone know how or even done that? If EoIP is not possible, is there any other simple way?

I had already read and thought about doing it with OpenVPN, but when I read the community documentation for OpenVPN on ubuntu 10.10, I fear it won't connect the tunnel to mikrotik OpenVPN server, since OpenVPN on ubuntu uses 2 certificate and 2 key files(as i read on the docs), but mikrotik configuration, i can see only 1 certificate can be applied on. This confuses me and make me decide to use EoIP(but i can't find any tutorial/docs about it). I don't actually need the encryption and security, i just need to create a tunnel for ubuntu and mikrotik.

General :: Create Tunnel To Utilize For Telnet Connection?

Nov 8, 2010

Machine A is located behind client firewall. The machine runs telnetd. This is Linux machine with Python 2.5.4 installed. I do not know the IP addy of the router and firewall is not open incoming. outgoing firewall is open.

Machine B (Windows machine) is a server with well known IP address. I can install any programs I want on either machine.

The idea is that I want Machine A to open a socket to machine B. Then I want to hold that socket and use to run a telnet session from Machine B to Machine A telnetd server.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Forgot Password To Login To SSH Tunnel

Feb 4, 2011

I am using 10.04 ubuntu and I have forgotten my password to login to a ssh tunnel. It is not the root password on my computer. Is there any way I can find the password out, change it, or just start over and create a new one? I know it isn't a connection problem because I can't login to ssh from localhost either. I've tried reinstalling ssh too.

General :: Create An External SSL Wrapper/tunnel Page For An Insecure Webpage Behind A Firewall?

Mar 14, 2011

I have an security cam with a built-in webpage inside my home network. That camera is using basic HTTP authentication instead of SSL. I want to be able to access the camera's webpage from outside my network, but I don't want to open an unencrypted video stream to the outside world. Right now, I'm doing some cumbersome ssh tunneling where I bounce off an ssh server like: ssh -N -L 9090:[URl]..and then I connect to my web page like: http://localhost:9090

But this is a pain. Now, gentle reader, I beseech you to tell me how I can use linux (Ubuntu) to get a fully encrypted SSL connection to my internal web page without the hassle of creating an ssh tunnel each time. I believe I can use stunnel, but I'm not sure of the command.

Ubuntu Servers :: Create / Run Script On Login?

Feb 19, 2010

I'm tunneling VNC over SSH, which I manage to get working. What I want to do is this: Load into GDM as soon as Ubuntu finishes loading (I think I got this to work via the login screen config). As soon as it loads, I want it to run the command: x11vnc -safer -localhost -nopw -once -display :0 This way I don't need to issue that command over SSH anymore. Can I do this? Or is there a 'better way' to access the GUI. The machine is being stored well away from monitor/keyboard, so accessing it remotely is the way I want to do it. I'm not entirely comfortable working from the commandline so GUI it is.

Server :: Ubuntu 9.10 - How To Create Accounts For Remote Login

Jan 19, 2011

I am kind of new to servers and need to set up a server in the lab (for 4-5 clients). I heard ubuntu has a different server edition. But I already have ubuntu desktop edition so I was wondering if I really have to install a server edition for my limited functionality. If it is not required to install a full blown server and I can do with the one I have, how do I go about creating accounts for remote login?

Ubuntu Servers :: Have SSH Running / But Create A New Login With Limited Access

Jun 7, 2011

I have SSH running on a computer I use as a server at home and login to it for my own purposes but am needing to share access to this server with someone else, and I'd like to do it in a way so that when they sign in all they see is the contents of one folder and nothing outside of it. So I'd like them to have full access to this folder and do anything they want with it, but not be able to browse outside of it at all via something like WinSCP (they're using Windows). I'm thinking I need to create a new account for them to sign in with but beyond that I'm not sure what I need to do. The only other special thing is that the folder I'd like them to be presented with is actually on an external hard drive. We're going to be doing a lot of online music collaboration and I need to give him lots of free space to drop files and the internal hard drive doesn't have a lot to spare right now.

Server :: Change The Login Console Of A Box To Create An Appliance

Nov 20, 2010

I know there are ways to change the login of a linux box (runlevel 3) so that you don't see the regular login prompt but that you get a list with options. You see this with appliances.

My goal is to create a login like some of those appliances have. Instead of just getting a login prompt you can select several options like login, change network configuration, change password, stuff like that. How can I do this? Is there an Open Source tool to configure this?

Programming :: Create A Remote Login Script With Options

Aug 11, 2010

All day I have to connect to various unix servers via ssh or ovpn. These servers report the current ip hourly to our dns server. I am trying to minimize the few hundred times a day i type ssh myUN@xy1234.mydns etc to connect. 1234 being a store number.

I would like to create a login script that has 2 options. -o = ovpn and -s= ssh. Is this possible.

ssh muUN@xy____.mydns is always used for ssh.
openvpn --remote xy_____.mydns --config client.ovpn is always used for ovpn.

I would like to be able to type something like,

[jim@localhost tools]$ ./login -? 1234

again 1234 being the store number I need to connect to.

Ubuntu Security :: Allow SSH Tunnel Through Ufw Firewall?

Jun 15, 2011

I have set up a Ubuntu 10.10 server. I have been using ssh tunnels to encrypt my web traffic at public wifi. I am trying to make this server as secure as posible so I enabled ufw. I allowed SSH and HTTP traffic in and denied everything else. But when I do that I can not use SSH -D because when I try to visit a webpage it does not load and I get the following.

Code:
uname@mybox:~$ channel 3: open failed: connect failed: Connection timed out
^C
uname@mybox:~$ fclchannel 4: open failed: connect failed: Connection timed out
^C
uname@mybox:~$ exit
logout

What do I have to do to allow ufw to allow ssh tunnels through?

Jan 12, 2010

Hi, I have a server at my home which is a Ubuntu 9.1 which is setup as a NFS server using NFS v3. I am also using DYN DNS to access my home server remotely from another location using SSH. Everything works good, I can sucessfully log in to my server from my laptop via SSH, however my problem mounting my NFS share which consists of appx. 300 mp3 files. My question is:

1 How Do I Tunnel a NFS share through a SSH tunnel?

2 Is there any other configuration? needed to be done to the router?

3 is there anything needed to be configured to the server or my laptop?

4 Manual mounts is fine for me I don't care about automounting.

I just want to be able to mount the NFS share via the SSH Tunnel and play my music and access other files from my server.I just need the steps to set up this connection.

Ubuntu Networking :: Browsing Via SSH Tunnel Very Slow

Jan 31, 2010

Browsing via SSH Tunnel very slow When browsing in firefox at work via proxy through ssh on my 8.04 server the speed is near dial up. I have compression enabled, tried restarting ssh, and rebooting the server but it remains so sluggish. At home the connection is quick but the speed is lost in translation once I ssh in. I also tried adding "UseDNS no" to the ssh config but that did not help with the slow login or any other speed issues.

Ubuntu Servers :: No Traffic Is Being Routed Through The Tunnel?

Aug 9, 2010

I know this has probably been solved multiple times, but I've searched the forum to no avail. I have a PPTP server setup properly with all ports forwarded correctly. A remote machine can connect and authenticate just fine. They get their IP assigned and everything.

The problem is that no traffic is being routed through the tunnel. Or, rather it is but the server doesn't seem to handle it. In a web browser I just get an error message. On a windows client I ran ipconfig and found a gateway address had not been assigned through the VPN tunnel. Could this be the problem? If so, how can I fix it?
