Ubuntu :: Networked Printer/Standby Laptop?

Oct 13, 2010

Is there any way to make it so I can let my laptop go into standby that is connected to my printer and make it so that I can still see the printer from my other systems. Then if I print something it brings the networked printer/laptop out of standby and prints my job. I just ran a test and when my system went into standby the printer went "offline" and I couldn't print from it. I don't want to be forced to leave my computer fully on 24/7 to have a networked printer.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Standby: Wireless Tries To Connect While On Standby

Jun 27, 2010

Running Ubuntu 10.04 on a dual-boot Windows 7 laptop.

On "suspend," the wireless card appears to close connections correctly. Then, >15 minutes later, the laptop's wifi LED lights up and the laptop generates heat.

The computer should be on standby, but instead it's waking itself up and running down the battery.

Are there any programs that might be failing to suspend for sleep? Are there any settings to prevent the wifi card from waking the computer?

I only noticed this because the laptop was getting hot and the battery was wearing down.

While I was setting up CentOS 5.5 for my first time I faced this problem which is connecting to a printer is not possible, my tutor told me you need to change from eth0 to eht1 or eth2, what does that mean? And if I do this, how can I connect a printer which I have its name and IP address.

Ubuntu Installation :: Using A "reserved" IP Under DHCP For The Networked Printer?

Feb 23, 2011

Searched this forum and Brother's resources but still can't get the Brother HL-2070N to play on 10.04. Especially troubling since 10.04 is an LTS. Wether throught SPM or Brother's PreInstall followed by an RPM converson I still can't locate the correct drivers. Done it countlees ways and still have never seen HL-2070N show up on the driver screen. Still stuck with HL-2060 whose best match flags "out of paper".

BTW; using a "reserved" IP under DHCP for the networked printer. Essentially a fixed IP.

Ubuntu Networking :: Desktop - Mac Laptop - Printer And External HD ?

Jan 9, 2011

I just installed it on my desktop. I love it so far, but I'm having trouble setting up a network in my apartment. I have the desktop directly plugged into my router and a mac laptop linked wirelessly to the router. I also have a printer and an external hard drive plugged into the desktop. The goal is to be able to access the external hard drive and use the printer from my mac laptop, as well as access the mac laptop from the desktop.

Right now, I can access the mac from the desktop with ubuntu on it. Under "Places" and then "Network," I can mount the folders I want and then access the contents.

I can also print and access my external hard drive from the ubuntu desktop.

However, on the mac laptop in the Finder under "Network" there is nothing. I can ping the desktop from the mac and get a response, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get beyond this. In System Preferences I have "File Sharing" and "Printer Sharing" both checked.

Fedora Servers :: Sharing Printer With Windows 7 Laptop?

Jul 2, 2010

I've checked the forums for a guide to sharing my printer with a laptop and cannot find any entries that are specific to my configuration. [URl]... My printer is connected to a desktop running Fedora 13. I also have a laptop running Windows 7. There was one web entry that spoke about "Windows Vista 7" that didn't match my configuration. [URL].. Is there a "how to" out there that I can follow to make this work? I am not a well-experienced user, so the more detailed (and accurate) the steps, the better!

Ubuntu :: Networked Indexing Service

Aug 8, 2010

On Windows, I used to be able to search for items on my home server quickly if it had indexing enabled by simpily typing a query in the search box when I was viewing one of its drives (i.e. samba shares).Since I moved the server to Ubuntu, I can find plenty of indexing software like tracker but I cant figure if any of them support querying them over the network. I need a fast way to search through all the files on the server with indexing without the hassle of having to VNC into it.

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Shutdown Of Networked PC's?

Sep 2, 2010

I will be running a network of +- 35 Ubuntu pc's from next year on. I have already started setting up remote desktop viewing utilities, but I now need a way to remotely shut down all the pc's at the same time, with a simple command as Admin. Setting up scripts to execute at a certain time is not gonna help, as the online time wont be the same all the time. I want to avoid having to remotely shut down each and every pc, as this will take quite a lot of time.

Ubuntu :: Connecting To A Networked Mysql Daemon

Dec 6, 2010

I have installed Tomcat on one machine and MySQL on another. When I run tomcat on the same machine as Mysql and use 'localhost' in the jdbc url, I have no problem accessing mysql through jdbc. So my problem is accessing a remote mysql instance. I have granted privileges in the following way from the MySQL prompt:GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON mydatabase.* TO myusername @ IDENTIFIED BY 'mypassword';

Still I get :
com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.jdbc4.MySQLSyntaxErrorEx ception: Access denied for user 'myusername'@'' to database 'mydatabase'
sun.reflect.NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.newInsta nce0(Native Method)
sun.reflect.NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.newInsta nce(NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.java:57)

I have no idea whether this is a problem at the operating system level i.e. allowing networked hosts, or whether it is something to do with MySQL. I have commented out bindaddress and, on this version, there is no 'skip-networking' line to comment out.

Ubuntu Networking :: Multifunction Printers In The Networked World?

Jan 23, 2010

So having recently set up my server (including some disk space and ushare, and an additional laserjet printer) I was wondering if anyone had any experience of putting a multifunction printer into an ubuntu server and adding it locally (to the server) then to the networked computers....I know this printer works perfectly (the scan too!) when plugged directly into a machine's USB....I suppose my real question is....does anyone know anything about the scanner side of it?? is this going to work?? I reckon the printer side will (/should - i know the printer works and i know the server can share printers.....lol) but the scanner side is relatively new (when put into the context of shared from my HS.Please note:My server is just running vanilla (plain) ubuntu 9.10....and my compo's are 10.04 and 9.10....ubuntu ONLY network...

Ubuntu Networking :: Monitoring Networked Computers Bandwidth Usage?

Mar 25, 2011

Back in school I remember using an application that would identify active IP addresses on a network, and basically show you a log of activity. We actually monitored another lab and went in and showed them what we saw (all the machines had IP addresses on the monitors.) We could see websites, bandwidth, etc.

I'm trying to find an application that would do this again. I've been trying to monitor my networks to see what machines are performing unauthorized operations. ISP is showing high bandwidth usage and there is no way checking email and browsing is using this amount, 200GB a month! Something is going on here.

Ubuntu :: File Preview In Nautilus On 11.04 On Networked Home Drive

Aug 2, 2011

We have recently upgraded to ubuntu 11.04 64bit from 10.04 and 10.10 in a networked office in which our home directories are mounted on a server raid array. Ubuntu considers that the home directory is a local drive rather than on a networkWe have noticed that file preview are very very slow in 11.04 for pdf's and pictures in nautilus, causing a lag of around 10 seconds for each file. This can cause a problem for folders which hold multiple files which can be previewed. Preview worked fine in previous versions of ubuntu on the same machine, with the same network setup. Previewing of actual local files works faster, but is slower on 11.04, than previous versions.

Both the 10.10 and 11.04 systems are up to date with available updates (11.04 - and 2.30.1 on ubuntu 10)Obviously, there is a work around for this problem - turn off preview. But, it would be nice to turn it on as its a useful feature.

Debian Hardware :: Can Make A Networked Hdd Secure

Jun 18, 2010

I've got a lan with a mixture of linux and win machines. I've got one of those network addressable printers that I really like since I can access it from any machine on the lan in an os independent manner.

I saw in the local computer store network addressable hard drives, i.e., those that have an ethernet address and port. I really like the concept of having hdd storage that is both machine and os independent, just like my printer. However I don't know how to make it secure from spoofers. The only filter between it and the outside world would be my linksys wireless router, which has an internal firewall, but that doesn't seem to be enough security to me.
