Ubuntu Networking :: Internet And File Sharing Between Xubuntu,windows 7 And Mac Os X Snow Leopard?
Nov 10, 2010
I have 2 laptops, one is a Acer travelmate (running xubuntu) and another one is a Dell studio (Running Windows 7). I also have an iMac..2 external hard drive and a BSNL 3G usb data card. I want to setup a network so i can share my files and internet connection between the 3 systems. I don't know what i want to do is possible or not. what i want to do:
1) connect the usb data card to Acer and share the internet connection using the inbuilt wireless card in the laptop so that the dell and imac can access it.
2) connecting the 2 ext. hard drive to Acer and sharing the files over the same connection( wireless connection used to share internet with other systems) so that i can access the files from my dell and imac. I want to mention that i don't have a router.
if yes..how? and if not why? i'm a newbie..so plz help me..earlier also this forum helped me a lot in learning linux..hope this time also i will have some good experiences.
I installed it on a desktop today to try it out. So far I'm loving it and have gotten everything to work except for one thing:
There's a printer connected to it (HP PSC 1600), and I'd like the other computers on the network to be able to print to that computer. The other computers are running Windows 7, and one is running Snow Leopard.
When I plugged in the printer, Ubuntu recognized it almost immediately and installed it. Wonderful! I then went ahead and set it to be Shared, and hoped for the best. Neither the Windows machine or the OS X machine could find the printer...even after I pointed them directly at what I thought was the CUPS address (\mycomputername:631). To make matters even more confusing, I was able to set up shared folders and have the other computers be able to view them.
How do I set up a Linux box on my network so that I can SSH into it and control it using VNC from my Mac mini? I've tried ssh'ing into the Linux box, but it's not recognizing who the user is. How do I find that out so that I can set up ssh & VNC on the Linux box?
I have a Laptop with Ubuntu on it, a Desktop with SnowLep and a server running Ubuntu. What I want to do is have the same Desktop (/home/lucian/Desktop) from server mounted on both other machines. I am using a wireless connection and I want to make it mount at startup. I already have the Ubuntu setup, but not at startup the SNowLep is harder and I could not do it yet.
I'm unable to get my Ubuntu 10.04LTS to see my Mac 10.6.4 machine.
I've got Samba and AFP enabled under the Mac file sharing preferences.
Attempt1: From Ubuntu, I can see my Mac under Network>Places, but I'm unable to mount the location.
Attempt2: In Ubuntu, I went to Places>Connect to Server and entered the following: Service: Windows Share Server: [name of my mac] Share: [name of my shared folder] Folder: User Name: [username] Domain Name: WORKGROUP
With this entered, I was able to get as far as being prompted for my password, but was still unable to connect.
Attempt3: I followed the same steps above, but left Domain Name blank. Still nothing.
Are there any docs out there for the correct steps? I can only find posts on getting Mac to see Ubuntu, but not the other way around.
Having wiped all of my HDD and installed ubuntu (on macbook), I now want to install snow leopard again. I've got a DMG that I made from my install DVD, and want to create a bootable USB to install from (because of no optical drive)..
I think I may have hastily installed Ubuntu on sister's Intel iMac. I'm not much of a techie and she'd asked me to make a dual boot system. I burned the ISO file and ran Boot Camp on her iMac and seemingly everything went through properly. However, upon restarting the system, I get a DOS-like page showing the boot options. Switching to 64-bit OS X resulted in a failed boot as did the option for 32-bit OS X. I'm in a bind as she needs to get back into OS X to work on her project.
Hey there. Currently my Toshiba laptop is dual-booted with windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 and I think I may try and triple-boot it with Snow Leopard. I'm not too familiar at all with hackintoshes so, how should I go about configuring a partition for the OS?
Also: is there any known problems running windows and a mackintosh OS?
If someone can give me some insight here I can also provide my computer's specs.
I have a comp with Snow Leopard/Windows/Ubuntu 10.4 on it. What I'm trying to do is set permissions to let me copy files from the Snow Leopard partition. I use to be able to. Now I get Permission denied. What do I need to do to set up permissions to the hfs+ journaled partition?
Perhaps I should have put this in the apple users section, but I am not an apple user. I am using a MSI WIND U100 running OSX snow leopard retail (GUID/GPT - boots using Chameleon).
I've been feeling guilty preaching open source while not currently practising what I preach so finally downloaded ubuntu 10.10 (netbook version) and using unetbootin I made the ISO bootable on an external USB drive.
I already had an empty 40gb partition which I'd intended to dual boot linux on so I went ahead and booted from the external and installed ubuntu. During the install I divided up the 40GB with 3GB for swap and 37GB as ext4 mount point /
Anyway, it installed and rebooted and loaded ubuntu fine using the default option in the auto installed GRUB. However, although the menu show my OSX it does not boot (ARGH!). When selected there is disk activity for a few seconds and then nothing, just blank screen.
I'm praying that I just need to tinker with grub or something to get my OSX back...
(PS> the [URL] forums have loads of info on dual/triple booting these hackintosh netbooks but mostly involving windows XP or windows 7 rather than ubuntu and also mostly about earlier OSX varieties which booted onto MBR partitions rather that GPT.
I did a full install of Ubuntu on my MacBook Pro (7,1) and I am trying to boot into the OS X disc but the screen always pulls up the Apple logo and loading circle and then greys out and tells me to turn the machine off.
I cannot get into disc utility or anything. It almost seems like the computer doesn't know how to handle the disc. I did not use Refit and the only change I made to the boot loader was blessing the ubuntu partition.
I have ubuntu 10.04, and I want to have all 3 main OS's operating on the same computer.So I have linux as my main system, windows in a virtual machine (virtualbox) and now I have a Mac OS X Snow Leopard CD that I'd like to install onto a 1 TB USB external hard drive...The only problem is that I don't know how to install it to the hard drive, since it plugs in through USB.
I have install the ubuntu 9.10 on my macbook pro running on snow leopard.
I see lots of errors especially on the usb driver.
And I have download the lastest update and after updating the ubuntu 9.10 the whole computer went in hang mode. i cannot do anything but just to resinstall my snow leopard and reload every thing and then i dare not install ubuntu again and worse there is no way i can boot into mac or ubuntu.
Recently upgraded Ubuntu home server from 8.04 client to 10.04 server and reinstalled all services therein. One of them is a Netatalk daemon that I configured in a fashion similar to this website:[URL]inder recognizes my server and the afp service, yet when I attempt to log in (using valid credentials), Finder indicates its the wrong username and password. I've tried altering some of the config files and my Google-fu to look for solutions
I've tried been trying my hardest and tried researching as much as I can to get Mac OS X Version 10.6.3 in VirtualBox in slackware. I've found a tutorial but it was for previous versions of Snow Leop and it hasn't seemed to help me get mine to run. I get to the part where it should start loading the cd (I purchased a copy of Snow Leopard from Amazon) and the closest I've gotten is to what seems to be a bootup and a loading page of some sort. The screen goes gray with a Mac "busy" mouse icon on the screen.
PS - Running Slack 12.1.0.
PPS - I have the Snow Leopard disc that has "boot camp" on it
I was searching for a long time for a Linux Live USB that I can boot my MacBook Pro from. Is there such a distro I can install on Snow Leopard or Windows 7? Update: I've found this:
"isohybrid" CD images (..) are special in that as well as the normal CD-based ISO9660 filesystem they also contain a valid-looking DOS-style partition table. Thus, if you simply copy one of these images raw to a USB stick a normal PC BIOS will boot the image directly. (...)Finally: I'd like to add support into xorriso for creating the nasty HFS hybrid images that are needed for booting Macs. The code that does this in cdrkit is probably some of the worst that I've ever worked with, and,I'd like to get away from it. If only Apple hadn't stupidly built their proprietary platform around this and had used open standards instead
I booted ubuntu and the included drivers worked beautifully for my Atheros AR8131 PCI Ethernet card on my laptop. I have an OSX Snow Leopard dual boot setup and my Ethernet card does not work. I was wondering if, because OSX is loosely linux based, the network drivers could somehow be loaded into my Snow Leopard install.
I have a laptop running Windows XP with a secure wireless internet connection. I want to share this connection to my desktop running Ubuntu 9.10 via an direct ethernet cable connection. So far in Windows I checked the "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" in the Wireless Network Connection Properties menu. Doing this creates a new IP Configuration. Here is an output of running the ipconfig command: Windows IP Configuration
I have an Ethernet hub, and want two computers (both notebooks) to share my internet connection. One is running Ubuntu 9.10 and the other is running Windows Vista. I want both computers to be able to connect to the internet (I use a cable modem).
However, when I plug both computers in, I am able to get only one of them working at one time. When Ubuntu works with the internet, Windows does not work (although it sees the internet connection). When Windows works, Ubuntu sees the connection, but cannot connect.
Just took the plunge and removed Windows 7 from my desktop rig and I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04
I was using this PC to share my Internet (DSL) connection to any and all other PC's on my network, wired and wireless, and I am attempting to set this up in Ubuntu.
My desktop, other wired PC's, a wireless AP and my DSL modem are all connected to a 8 port Ethernet switch and I was using ICS in Windows 7 to share my Internet connection once I established the connection from my desktop.
Can this be done in Ubuntu? As soon as I make the DSL connection it says that Auto eth0 disconnects (which I set to share to all in IPv4 settings which I read on the forum is the way to share)... thus nothing is currently shared :/
In this document it states that the sharing computer needs two network interfaces... but in Windows I only used the one...
i have 2 laptops which is one installing windows 7 and the other one is ubuntu 10.04. i have internet on windows 7 and want to share to linux ubuntu 10.04 through wireless connection. How to setting that?
i have an evdo connection with which i connect to the internet. i have been trying to share this connection for quite a few days from my lucid machine to a windows 7 pc but have failed. i have tried dhcp3-server, firestarter, network manager's built in capabilities but have failed! today i manually configured da windows 7 pc to an ip address within da range which network manager ws assigning when 'shared to other computers' ws selected and it worked! Now da question is how do i do it automatically? dhcp3-server never starts, it always fails with the error 'not configured to listen' or sumthng like it! Plus i want the wireless of my laptop to make an ad hoc connection to my mobile fone, which is also no possible...i think its some problem with da dhcp server.
I'm trying to share the internet connection of my Windows XP Virtual Machine (virtualbox) to Ubuntu. I know it sounds weird, but what happens is that i'm using a 3G modem to connect to the internet and 3G connections are still very unstable with ubuntu's network manager. Fortunately, the modem works a lot better with my Virtual Machine. I have already set up a "host only" network between my Windows XP guest and my Ubuntu host and i can they can ping each other but i still can't share the connection of my virtual machine. I already selected "share this connection" on win xp but i think i still have to configure something on ubuntu for it to work. The interface Ubuntu uses is vboxnet0 (not eth0).
This is the last thing to do before i can get rid of my Windows XP partition
configuring Internet Connection Sharing from my Ubuntu 10.10 machine to a Windows XP machine. I've seen How To's but they didn't work, yet.
The Ubuntu machine connects to the Internet through a DSL USB modem that required packages not provided with the distribution, and specific instructions to configure it; so getting Internet working alone was difficult. As a result, I don't even use Network Manager, rather connect using the command pppoe-start. The machine is connected to the Windows PC through a simple cable, through the Ethernet card.
Some tutorials I've seen on ICS are for machines with two Ethernet cards, or for wireless connections; but I've seen none for a USB modem. However I once found one, years ago, and it worked, but I couldn't find it now. It was using iptables, and I didn't really understand what I was doing, but it worked. But then I had to format the disk, and now I can't find a way to get it working again.
