Ubuntu Networking :: Active FTP With Nautilus / Connect To Server?
Jul 16, 2010
I need to connect to an FTP server that only accepts active FTP connections. (In Windows, I have to uncheck the "use passive FTP" option in Folder Options in order to connect) Is there a way to do this with Ubuntu's Connect to Server system/Nautilus? I would like to be able to interact with the files as if they were local, as I can on other FTPs and on Windows.
I'm trying to use Nautilus's connect to server to connect to an ftp server, but I'm having a problem. The username on the ftp server is "anonymous", but it requires a password. When Nautilus sees "anonymous" as the username it assumes it's dealing with a public ftp server and doesn't prompt for a password, and then, of course, I fail to connect.
I've tried modifying the .gtk-bookmarks file to account for this, but this leads to another problem. The password opens with a / and for whatever reason, this leads to Nautilus popping up an error: "Could not connect to ftp://anonymous:0/[rest of password]@[server]". It's adding a "0" to the beginning of my password for some reason. Is there any way to fix this without changing the password?
Even though I enabled "X11Forwarding yes" I am not able connect via as "GUI" by using "connect to server" in places. but i could do by nautilus command. as root both way possible, by user unable to connect in GNOME. repeatedly prompting for server password
i was using ubuntu 9.10 till recently when i decided to upgrade to ubuntu lucid 10.04. turns out the internet icon shows connected after fresh installation but when i try to use firefox , after an long wait it shows server not found. i did a research of my own and found that i am not able to ping even my router.using sudo dhclient eth0 doesn't recieve offers , but surprisingly when i tried dhclient eth0 in root shell with networking internet got configured very quickly and i can ping the router and any website.i forgot to mention i have a wired connection which i am trying to connect and the net is working fine with windows 7 on the same PC.
Yesterday I moved my modem (wireless) to my living room so the PS3 detected a better signal. In doing so, I had to run a new ethernet cable from my living room where the modem is into my office where the computer is. I use ubuntu 9.10
For some reason I cannot connect to the internet now. When I scroll over the connection, it says wire connection 1 is active. I have my settings manually set. I did notice the MAC address field is blank...
I didn't have an issue before, but with changing cables and whatnot, something got messed up somehow.
My machine has Ubuntu 10.4, installed a week ago. I'm connecting to the Internet with a Wireless 3G modem, the interface is named ppp0. Additionally, I have a network card that is connected to a home router, that's eth0. Everything works fine with eth0 disabled, all my apps can access the internet correctly. But, my issue is that when i enable eth0, i can't access the internet with any app.
So why do i need eth0 anyway? The thing is that i must share my internet connection with my sister, who is also connected to our home router. I planned to give her access by installing squid on this machine and configuring her browser to connect to squid. However, since none of my apps can connect to the internet while eth0 is active (whereas squid and all other apps work fine with eth0 disabled) I can't let her connect to squid while squid is working correctly.BTW selecting "use this connection only for resources on its network" under "routes..." of the ipv4 tab of "Auto Ethernet" made it a little better. Firefox and Xchat started to work with eth0 active. Squid still doesn't work though (althought it works just fine with eth0 disabled)
I want to use FTP client (for example ncftp) to connect in active mode. I have firewall (iptables) on my laptop and most of time I am behind rooter. With outgoing packets and with passive mode all is working fine.But some sites accept only active mode.I could open some port range in firewall and in rooter for active data packets, but I don't know how to solve security issues.So how should I correctly manage active ftp connection?
How can I set data port range when opening active connection with ncftp (or maybe another ftp client)?How can I limit that incoming connections to that ports range is accepted only by ncftp or else dropped?
working to sort out the damn wireless for too long. Mine in cent05 5.2 . network manager is on and I can see the icon on tray. It list all the wireless connections too, but just won't connect. WPA encry is disabled. further details below:
I have done a minimal install of jessie stable on a 2004 laptop with openbox as the window manager. My problem is the nautilus connect-to-server returns "This file server type is not recognized" when entering sftp: or ssh: I have also tried installing Thunar with the same result. I can use cli and connect using both sftp and ssh.
I am using Nautilus to connect to an external server. Currently, I use password authentication, and all works fine. I just type sftp://SERVER and the connection is established after providing the login credentials. However, I changed the server to only accept Public Key Authentication and disabled password authentication, and as a consequence I could not login using Nautilus anymore. Is there some way to make this work?
My Ubuntu Desktop (9.10, 64-bit) VM can't connect to my Windows 7 (64-bit, Ultimate) File Share using Nautilus. I enter "smb://<comuterName>" in the address bar and then it comes up with a password dialog (see screenshot) and then after entering the correct login info, the dialog disappears for a second or two but then reappears again. The dialog always comes back up and the share is never mounted. Connecting from an XP box on the network to the windows 7 share works just fine. Connecting from the Ubuntu machine to the windows 7 share using the appropriate 'smbmount' command works just fine. Connecting from the Ubuntu machine (using the nautilus GUI) to the XP box (password protected) works just fine. Then I turned off password protection in Win7, rebooted the win7 machine, and still all of the above tests turned out the same. And the Ubuntu machine still doesn't connect to the windows share using the nautilus GUI, and still displays the password dialog even though no password is required anymore. I tried using smbclient to view the shares, here is the output (not sure if I should be trying something else using the smbclient program):eddie@eddie-ubuntu:~$ smbclient -L eddie-win7 Enter eddie's password: session setup failed: SUCCESS - 0
I'd like to know how to connect Ubuntu to the windows 7 share using the nautilus GUI. If it's a bug, I'd like to file it (I think it is). But first I would like some direction trouble-shooting to make sure it is in fact a bug. (I think I read elsewhere on this forum that someone connected Karmic to win7 share, so maybe it's not a reproducible bug. But then again, maybe they weren't using 64-bit Karmic...)
After running updates earlier today, none of my Ubuntu-based computers can connect to any Windows shares in Nautilus.Samba is running and working fine; I can access the shares via web browser using smb://hostname, so I know it's not an issue with Samba not working.Also, the two Windows-based computers can see each others' shares, including printers.
There's something very annoying about how Nautilus opens "image viewer" windows. They open, I can see them, but when I press the keyboard, it's still Nautilus which gets the commands. This is because Nautilus stays the active window!
Most annoyingly, when I want to have a quick look at an image, and then close it, Nautilus closes instead (Alt+F4).
Does anyone know what I'm talking about? How to solve it?
I can use smbclient -U name //ip.adresss/"My Place" to connect with no errors, but nautilus will not open the folder. nautilus discovers the computer but not the folder. maybe I need some debugging info from nautilus...
I have a Debian and a Ubuntu box. I installed a samba server on Debian box. I can log in the samba share folders from Windows boxes. Since the samba server has SHARE security mode, I need password only. But when I try to log in the samba share folders from Ubuntu box using nautilus, it asks username, domain and password. I cannot log in share folders on the Debian box. There is no message. Nautilus keep showing the password input box until i cancel it.So I use smbmount command. It works well. But that way is not comfortable at all. Anyone can help me logging in samba share in nautilus?
I googled a lot but I didn't find anything about this. I have multiple accounts on the same ftp server (the server is not mine I don't access its configuration)
If I write ftp://hostname on the location bar it lets me login, but only allow me to be in only one account at a time. Putting ftp://hostname on the location again just opens the account I logged into and I'm unable to login to the other account to move files between them conveniently.
Is it possible to log into multiple accounts on the same server?
I posted the same problem before but did not get answers, I guess due to the unattractive title. I have two Ubuntu machines, both desktop version with a server installed on top. They are both on the same network. It seems that when I restart the remote computer, I can ssh to it fine for a while but then I get the following:
Read from remote host: Connection reset by peer lost connection.
In Gnome Places->Connect To Server dialog, I am having problem using the Custom Location Service Type. I enter in the URI as
I get an pop up error message that says:
Cannot Connect To Server. You must enter a name for the server.
Which would be fine if there was actually a place for me to enter the name which there is not. What am I doing wrong. This is the first time I have tried using the Connect To Server dialog. Normally I just use a script I wrote to mount my share in a folder on my local drive as some programs cannot access the mounted network folder. In a browser all I have to do is:
I tried using Windows Shares, but that did not work either. It does work if I click on network and access the share that way, but some programs like firefox and a few others that I want to save a file to my network drive do not show the network unless the share is mounted in a folder. So, I wrote a script:
how to setup an Active/Active Load Balanced and High Available (If one of the nodes is down the system still runs) MySQL cluster. I have found quite a few howto's but I have some things unclear in my mind. I found a few solutions like this one: [URL] or this: [URK] Those are using two or four MySQL nodes, two Load Balancers to avoid a single point of failure but only one MySQL cluster management server. What happens if the MySQL cluster management fails?
I have also found a "MySQL Master-Master Circular Replication" technique but from what I read, with this option there is a chance that conflicts will arise if node A and node B both insert an auto-incrementing key on the same table.
I have got xorg and gnome-core installed. When I put in command startx I get the following message: X: warning; process set to priority -1 instead of requested priority 0 Fatal server error:Server is already active for display 0 If this server is no longer running,remove /tmp/.X0-lock and start again. when I try to sudo Xorg -configure it shows me same message server is ..... lspci shows me the following information 04:02.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage XL (rev 27)So what I am doing wrong and how do I get this videocard working with Xorg.
I have VIA/S3G unichrome IGP video card of 32MB after installing fedora i am getting very worst resolution of 600x400which is completely irritating so please provide me a way out from this problem to use fedorathe solutions i followed and failed are given below
1. Some one told me to change the xorg.conf file but i failed because there is no such file in the given location
2. Some one told me to create it using system-config-display but for fedora 14 there is no package for that
3. some one told me again of using the command Xorg -configure but it said as followed [root@localhost tmp]# Xorg -configure
Fatal server error: Server is already active for display 0 If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock and start again.
I set up 9.10 as a file server at my house, connected through the router via LAN. I had everything working, using it as a Samba file server. I moved to to my college apartment and I am now having troubles... I changed the network information in /etc/networking/interfaces to what it should be (or at least I thought so...)
I can ping myself, but nothing else. Also, on my router configuration page, the server is coming up as a connected device with the correct IP address that I set it to.
My problem is that i cannot connect to anything that is running on this server via WAN. i can connect to everything from anywhere just fine through LAN though... i have all in use ports opened up on my router. i tryed messing with the ubuntu firewall and even tryed turning it off. but no luck. btw i am running ubuntu server 10.04 with matching desktop!
I just loaded NX Server, following the instructions from NoMachine. When I try to login from a client I get "Authentication Failed for User My Username" I can use the same client to connect to another NX Server on my network so I know the client works. I'm not clear if I need to set up a user, or if I can just logging with the username & password from the host (which is what I'm trying).
