Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Server From Home IP
Feb 6, 2011
I just set up an old PC as an Ubuntu Server. I've got it all connected, and set up the way I want it...here's the problem I can't access my server as long as I'm attemting to access it from my home IP. I can ssh and ping it from both my phone on 3g and another (non-local) server I have SSH access to. Because of how our apartment is set up, each bedroom has it's own separate ethernet connection. The one in the room next to mine goes unused so I set up my server on it. My ISP is Charter, if that matters.
I am wanting to turn an old desktop to a small file server, just the usual movies, music, pictures, etc. I want to be able to access this not only on my home network I want to be able to access it online so there is a way to get to my files remotely if needed. I was wondering if ubuntu server is what I must use or would the desktop edition do the trick?
I have a server running Ubuntu server edition with SMB server all set up and running. I've set up the main root of the drive to be shared and I've set up a user in /etc/samba/smbusers to say root = "joeflood" so I can sign in as root using the username "joeflood". This works and I have read/write access to the filesystem (yay!). However, if I browse to /home/javawag (my main user home directory), I no longer have write permissions! I can see all the files in there and read them no problem, but writing is a no-go. I'm logged in as root though?! Btw, I can login via SSH and create folders/etc as root in the /home/javawag folder, and they showed up in the SMB mount on my mac too.
So I finally successfully installed Ubuntu 10.10, but I can't access my home wireless network. I dual booted with Windows 7, and it detects my local wireless network, asks for the key and connects correctly. In Ubuntu, I have to plug in an ethernet cable to access the internet (like I am now). Ubuntu doesn't detect the network, and I tried "Create New Wireless Network..." up the top right, but it doesn't connect.
I am trying to make my home server accessible to the whole web. I have installed Nginx on my Fedora 15 64-bit Linux machine, and it works with localhost but it doesn't work online or allow other computers on the network to access it via the IP address. It keeps coming back with: Could not connect
I have port forwarding. I have even tried different ports but they all seem to be blocked. What could be wrong? I have a netgear router.
The garage in my house is a dead spot for my current wifi router.I can't get a signal there.Moving my router within the limits of my cabling doesn't fix it. But I have two other routers I'm no longer using.Is it possible to use one of them as a wireless access point to extend the range of my current router?If so, what is the general procedure for doing that? My main router is a Verizon Actiontec M424WR. My other unused routers are a D-Link and a Netgear, both of which have wireless capability. The Netgear had a superior range, as I recall.
I've used Samba for several years and when it works it's great. Unfortunately from time to time it seems to get messed up and either all the 7 machines on my home network can't be seen or I can't access the shares on some. I have 2 Windows XP computers 4 Kubuntu and one Linux Mint KDE, all the latest versions. I'd rather not plough through all the documentation for Samba, but would really like a "model" smb.conf with a few comments about parts that might have legitimate variants. I have researched this with Google searches many times but have failed to find the information I need in concise form.
I have had this configuration at home for years, but I just changed my line provider and I cannot get it to work.
I have a desktop machine with two ethernet interfaces, eth0 and eth1. Etho is connected to the cable modem and that seems to be working fine - well, I'm posting here, right? Eth1 is connected to a Linksys WAP54G wireless access point. I have eth1 set to 192.168.1.240 and the AP set to 192.168.1.245 (the default). The desktop runs CentOS and I have dhcpd running, and I have focused on the dhcpd.conf file, which I have changed many times. Here is the latest incarnation:
Code: # # DHCP Server Configuration file. # see /usr/share/doc/dhcp*/dhcpd.conf.sample #
I've been running a Samba server under RedHat 8 for five years without a hiccup. I want to cut over to a F10 box but cannot get shares accessible. smbclient attempts fail over NT password error. SELinux is disabled. Server is visible on the network. Users require no password access to shared data.
# Samba config file created using SWAT # from UNKNOWN (>) # Date: 2009/06/12 14:15:15
Instead of doing this by actually changing the apache directory, I simply put in a symlink from the WWW directory.This worked many times, but today, under Maverick, I got the following error : "Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server."I spent a LOT of time on the web trying to solve this error and in the end, it got solved simply by enabling permissions "access" to "others" direclty on my home folder (because my Dropbox folder is, of course, within my home folder).However, I have no idea if this is a good idea. Does this mean that simply anyone could access any file on my computer ??Alternatively, does anyone know how I could proceed to make this LAMP server work WITHOUT having to change my Home directy permissions this way ?
I installed the latest version...Everything works like a charm. I have Windows Home Server 2003 running and would like to access all of my folders. How can i setup OPENSUSE to find/access my Windows Home Server 2003. Can you help me with this. Just to let you know. Am i missing something so i can access them locally.
I have a home server that I have setup to connect to via SSH. All is working well with that. I would like to have the home server access the internet through a VPN. However, if I do this, I am no longer able to connect to the server via SSH, even though I know what its IP address is.
I would like to use an unused desktop running Ubuntu desktop edition as sort of a file server for my house. I don't need to do much other than use it as a networked drive. All of the computers in the house are running either Windows or linux (and a google tv if possible). What programs do I need to use it for this purpose? I've heard something about apache and samba. What else do I need?
I have got a fair idea on setting up a home server to be shared among other computers for data files...I just have a few doubts on the following
1. Can I disable the monitor for the laptop as it may consume unnecessary power if I intend to use it purely for network use.
2.Currently I connect to Net thru DHCP.. How do I use this while accessing from other computers (as it is going to be dynamic each time)
3.For Power saving what are the options? Should I put the server in Hibernate or switch off when not in use say during night ..If I switch it off , then I may have to power on the laptop physically each time right ? I want to eliminate physical operations in the laptop and control it purely from other network machines at the same time get maximum power savings as if it is on 24 hrs my electricity bill will go for a toss plus more importantly the heat may kill my ol laptop!
4.Are there any good software (win and linux)for managing the home server like being able to access the drive , reboot , switch off,transfer files , Run an application on the servr etc..?
the only error message I can find comes from "dmesg|tail"all it shows is "no IPv6 router"any body know what is going on here or where where to look for more clues the next time I get around public wifi Oh the windoze washers and apple polishers don't seem to have any problems at all
i have followed multiple guides to make my home server use a static ip address. no matter what i do it always reverts back to its dhcp address after about 2 minutes. how do i get the static ip address to stick, or be permanant.
I currently have a home server, running Gentoo, with IPv4 connectivity through Qwest.I feel that it is important that this server also be available through IPv6 (I'm aware that, after exhaustion, my end still might not get an address through DHCP).I currently use dyndns.org to provide me with a DNS entry mapping jrvanwhy.homelinux.net to my IPv4 address.I do not have any sort of tunnel set up yet for IPv6 traffic yet. The new domain name does not necessarily have to be the same [URL].I do not wish to spend any money on this.Is there some free service I can register for that would do both the tunneling and the DNS entry? Is there a service that can supply me with an IPv6 DNS entry, if I get a static IPv6 address with another tunnel broker, like Hurricane Electric?
I've been a Xubuntu/Ubuntu/Lubuntu hobby user for about 18 months now. I started using Linux as a way to revive older computers provide a backup and expand my knowledge of computing. The command line was something new to me but as long as I can find detailed directions on how to do what I want I can usually manage. I set up a Samba server for my home shared network and now I'd like to make the shared drives of that server accessible from outside my network. Via ssh or ftp or some program of the like. I'd like to have it user name and password protected. Configurable user rights would be nice. (read/write/delete/etc) As well as novice user friendly.
My end goal is a server with read/write capability that I will be able to access from work or a friends house or anywhere with an Internet connection and my laptop. I understand about port forwarding and have done so with my home network behind an AT&T U-verse router/modem. I've researched openssh and some ftp setups but they seem like they can be difficult. Now for the questions. Is this task something that can be accomplished without a degree in computer networking? Is there a program(s) that would make this a simpler task? Is this more complex than its worth? How would I go about setting up such a thing?
I've set up a PC installed with Ubuntu 11.04 on my home network, given it the name "server" and given it a static IP of 192.168.1.200. I've created a file in the home directory called "Public" and set it to be shared with everyone, basically a chmod 0777 situation. Now, how do I connect, or map out that folder from another ubuntu 11.04 machine? I know how to do it in Windows, just hit "run" and type in "\server" and blamo, I can see everything that's shared on that machine. I can't figure out how to do this with Ubuntu.
I have a netbook running Fedora 12 and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get it to connect to my WHS. For my netbook its not that big of a deal, but what I really need it for is my soon to be music computer. It will be running F13, and mainly be for playing music stored on my WHS. how to get to my WHS shares?
How could I configure Ubuntu to be setup as follows...
Wireless Client ----> Wireless Router ----> Home Server ----> Internet
What is needed to make all of the wireless traffic go to my internet connection port. I will be having two ethernet cables plugged into the system one from the wireless router and one to my internet router.
I just received a 2 tb drive for my server to be. The pc is a P4 3.06 ghz with 4 gb of ram. I have found a number of posts on this forum, as well as on the net in general, about setting up a file/print server at home. What I want to be able to do is to access my server through the internet from my office computer (windows 2000) How can I do that? I have not yet spent much time trying to decide which distro I will use. It seems that a number of them are suitable for this purpose, so I just plan to try several from a live cd and then choose one.
I am setting up Apache (Fedora 12) inside my home network. From inside my home network I access it without any problem. I need to set it up to access it from internet. I have the following questions. Here is temporary setup for testing purpose. Internet-->ADSL modem (SEIMENS Speed Stream 4200)---> Apache (Fedora 12)
1. Do I have to do any kind of ports forwarding on ADSL modem. (There is no option to do port forwarding on Modem) May be I need different Model of Modem?? 2. I tired to Ping my real IP for modem form another computer from internet. I am even unable to PING the ADSL 's real IP. Why it is that?
