In my university linux lab I have access to a linux network drive where I save programming code.I have ubuntu as a guest in virtualbox on my xp computer in my dorm. How can I map the linux network drive to ubuntu for use in virtualbox? I already have it mapped in windows, but can't get it mapped in ubuntu / virtualbox
I just installed Ubuntu on my laptop and I found that I cannot connect to my school's wifi network while i have no problem connecting using windows. Also I can connect to my home's wifi network. The details of the wifi network are as follow:
i hav 2 laptops but there is only one LAN port and i recently splitted them with my own router, the problem is the internet works fine, but i cannot access the schools's network e.g. my friend's shared folder in another room, the school's shared folder, etc. i can only access my own local router network.
I am putting together a server and computer lab at my school for Standardized testing, and am planning on using debian for it. But first, i must prove to the school board that this is a possible and viable option, so right now it is one pc with 1 gig ram (Going to be the server for this experiment), and two others with around 512 mb ram.the problem with all this is, the computers in the lab cannot have hard drives, as there is some sort of licencing issue. So I need to be able to have these two testing computers boot from the server's hard drive.
Sometimes my file share network stops working,and will then work again.I'm lost with this problem. The server pc is a Zenwalk pc.The other pc is a win7 pc. This error only occurs on Zenwalk. When i run puppy from the live cd the file shares are always visible,without fail.Under puppy i use pNethood. When the ping command is used there is no problem, and the pc name can be pinged.This is shown below:
I am trying to tunnel through my college's free AP so I can get access to protocols outside of http and https. The school has an in-browser DNS redirect until you log in.The output of "cat /proc/version" on the server OS is "Linux version 2.6.35-27-generic (buildd@palmer) (gcc version 4.4.5 (Ubuntu/Linar o 4.4.4-14ubuntu5) ) #48-Ubuntu SMP Tue Feb 22 20:25:29 UTC 2011" The client OS is Windows 7. What I have done so far is use Proxy Cap to redirect applications to a Putty tunnel connected to the server. Eventually I want to tunnel that SSH connection through my school's firewall, so that I can keep encryption and have a reasonable amount of ease with setup.
I am not particularly educated on the inner workings of the DNS redirecting so I was not sure what to search for. My attempts to connect Firefox over normal http proxies failed and since all ports are blocked besides http and https I didn't attempt any socks or SSH. I have also tried simply hosting the SSH server on http ports with little success. I hope that I can do this without having to purchase a domain, but that's starting to seem like that won't be the case.
I installed Ubuntu 9.10 onto my laptop, and having wireless issue. I was able to connect to wireless at home, but cannot at school. Then recently, I reformatted by desktop at home, and now I can no longer connect to my own connection. But yet, I'm able to connect to my neighbor. I considered installing ndisgtk package, but then i thought if I'm able to connect to some connections that means I'm not missing windows driver (maybe I'm wrong ).
I'm running ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop with broadcom BCM4322 wireless card.Basically what keeps happening is my wireless will stop working, then network manager will notify me that I have lost signal. It will then try and reconnect, but it never seems to be successful. The only way I can get the wireless to work again is if I disable wireless then re-enable wireless (or do a complete system restart).
However, it does not seem to have this problem at home. The only difference I can think of from home and school is either encryption types (the university uses WEP, I use WPA) or the fact that at home there is only one access point and at university there are multiple access points all with the same SSID.Anyone have any idea how to make my laptop stop dropping connection all the time?
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - Lucid Lynx(great interface!). But I am experiencing a very weird problem. The wireless internet works just fine at my apartment. But when I am in my school, it just stops working at all. It didn't use to be like that. It used to work in school too few weeks before. But I don't know what happened all of a sudden. I have checked with my school system administrator to know if there has been any change with the network. He said the network has always been the same.
At home, I can easily connect to my home network with ubuntu. But at school, things are differently. The wireless security is tighter, and I need more then just my username and password to connect. (See attachment for Screenshot) The last two lines, okay, but I seem to need a certificate, and that MSCHAPv2, Anonimous identity. I don't understand what I need to enter in those fields. I only got a username and password from school and that's all I need for windows. So why does Ubuntu want/need more info?
i'am trying to configure Squid3 et SquidGuard on ubuntu Server 10.04 for a school. I'm new in linux, before i post this thread, I searched in the french forum and www. I found nothing to help me to resolve this issue. You can see below to configuration file from Squid3. which is stored in /etc/squid3/
share a Dreambox HDD over the network. To those who don't know - Dreambox is a digital TV tuner with Linux OS and in my case it has a fairly large hard drive, which I would like to make available over the Local Network, so I can use it as a network hard drive on my Ubuntu Karmic and Windows 7.
The Dreambox has an ftp server set up but I can't watch video files directly from an ftp server somehow, it forces me to download those files first. So what I want is to make that hard drive available as a normal local network shared item with permissions to read write and execute, so that I could also keep my Movies in that hard drive or maybe even be able to download to that hard drive directly.
I think it has to be possible somehow Or at least if it was possible to mount it somehow on the Ubuntu, hmm.
Be the way my Dreambox model is DM 7020 and if I connect to it using telnet it uses the sh Shell I think.
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.4 LTS and would like to share this computer on my windows network. I understand that Samba is the way to go, but how do I configure linux with Samba so I can share files and printers? I am able to see my windows computers (vista and xp) but I am not able to see the linux computer with those machines plus I would like to change the network name of the linux machine if possible. Please any help and information will be much appreciated. Eventually I would like to server a printer from this linux machine to the other windows machines.
I seem to be having quite a big problem with Internet sharing. After doing a clean install of Lucid, I tried to set up a shared connection between my computer and my Roku set-top box. I have noticed that I am only able to set up a connection profile in Network Connections under the Ethernet card with the active Internet connection. That is, whenever I try to set up a connection, I am not given the option of using the second Ethernet card. Thus I can't share the network connection. Can someone PLEASE help me? The IRC has been completely useless.
I have 2 Ubuntu machines: a desktop in my bedroom, and a laptop.
I have my music shared on my desktop machine, and can access it through the network menu item in the nautilus manager, but I want the files from the share to be mounted on the disk so I can access it through the commandline.
If I right-click the shared folder in Nautilus, it says its location is smb://rob/music
If I do:
mount -t smbfs //rob/music /mnt/music, it tells me that it cant locate rob.
So I try "ping rob" and that doesn't work.
I can't make a hosts entry for rob which happens at this moment to be 192.168.0.8, because my router assigns different IP addresses to various machines at different times, and I cant seem to find a way to make static maps from MAC address to ip address.
So, how come nautilus can see my samba share on the machine "rob", but the mount commands cannot?
I have a network PC running Win7 that u use for storage of all my media; movies, music and pictures.I can connect and use the share just fine using the "connect to server" option under places menu.I think i need to modify the fstab file but I am not familiar enough with it to do this.Have searched other threads for help but I am doing something wrong.HP Laptop running Ubuntu 10.10 connecting to a win7 share through a router.
I just switched over to ubuntu 10.04 LTS Netbook Edition from Windows XP and I am wondering how to setup a home network and share files with other computers in my house? I tried going to Preferences -> Personal File Sharing. But the options for 'Share Files over the Network' is grayed out. The message is "This feature cannot be enabled because the required packages are not installed on your system."
I'm using Internet connection through local network, receiving white (global) IP, route, DNS with local DHCP server. Lately I noticed that my Ubuntu gets ipv6 autoconfiguration from ISP router, receiving global ipv6 address and automatically adding ipv6 route. I can access Internet resources using ipv6 connection: I can ping inet resources using my ipv6 global address and access, for example, ipv6.google.com or URL..
How can I share ipv6 connection to my home network? Using ipv4 it's easy, I just can use NAT for this. But if I understand correctly, in ipv6 there isn't such thing as NAT, because there is no limit in ip addresses.
I am a big ubuntu fan (9.04) installed,everything went well, installed my network card(s) & the onboard without no problems/installation disc.I have 2 Network interface(s) that I used on windows xP to 'bridge' my connection, because I only have one slot on my router, and the last slot runs into my computer room and from the PC, I run it to the xbox/ps3.No matter what I do, I cannot get ubuntu to share connection to my other network interface.
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 since 2-3 weeks. First I tried live CD and the OS seems to be very good. So i installed it on my laptop.So far i had no problems until I tried to access the shared network folders of my Server running on MS Windows Vista and another trial PC running WindowsXP. I'm trying to solve this since 2-3 days, I haven't found a solution.1st of all my network works fine. All computers can ping each other and as the laptop had Windows XP installed the server was accessable.1st I installed the SMB4k tool with this program. I could see the computer names, but as soon as I select a Windows computer the tool searches and nothing happens.
I tried a lot of different variations of this command but in the end I receive this kind of error. I also tried to add -o user=username pass=password, nothing changed.After this I searched information about this error, some forum threads I googled are telling the SMB4K tool modifies the /etc/sudoers file and cause this error. So i tried to change it back with some kind of sudo chmod 0640 etc/sudoers but this won't work it seems I can not modify or edit thisw file using sudo.With the pyNeighbourhood tool I could only see my Laptop but not the Windows PCs.At the end I will install Linux systems on all of my PCs, but only if all my tests will pass .
I have suddenly lost the desktop icon (of a hard drive) for a mounted network share. It is funny because, I have other network mounts which share the same server, and there icons are appearing, and this particular share just does not show up with the icon, even if I try mounting it different locations in the filesystem. Any ideas. I really like those cute icons on my desktop.
I'm trying to set up a wireless or wired network (wireless would be better...) to share my connection with my housemate, as well as with some devices. The only guide I found regarding this (I must admit, I didn't have much time to put into research), was dating back to 2005, and although doable, seemed somewhat confusing. Getting to the point: is there a way (maybe a standalone program, or some kind of plugin) to share a connection?
I have a Linksys router configured via Windows 7 and have to other PC's using Ubunto, and would like to share folders on the 2 Linux boxes with the Windows Laptop. I can see the windows network through the Linux machines but not vice-versa. I also have a Konica 1400W printer connected to the Linux box but can't get the W7 laptop to find it.Sharing message box states I haven't installed the correct sharing packages, but cant find them
I have two computers with ubuntu 10.04 installed. They both connect to the same wireless router. One computer has an external hard drive that has music, pictures and some documents. another thing, the hard drive has been formatted to ext4. I would like to be able to access that external hard drive from my other computer. I read some post on how to connect to the server through ssh but i think it's the intruction are too old. I tried nfs for server/client, but couldn't set it up, it was a little complicated.
I have a desktop with Ubuntu and I've set up Samba to share files with my Windows 7 laptop. I can access my home folder just fine except for my NTFS storage partitions on the desktop's HDD and my home folder's Downloads folder (which times out whenever I try and open it).
Is there an alternative way to share files between Linux and Windows 7?
I have a Ubuntu box (10.10 x64) that i use for XBMC (a media center), everything works fine when i boot up and start adding network shares (the shares are on a Ubuntu 10.04 x64 Server). it doesn't matter if i use NFS or SAMBA to mount the shares, both work. BUT when i reboot i get problems The share mounts come up but to late, XBMC doesn't see the share when it starts.
The thing i see is : When i boot up the lights of my NIC (realtek 8111) are on and flickering, but just a few seconds before the login prompt comes up the lights are off. And then after 15 to 20 seconds everything comes up again, and the shares are mounted, but to late for XBMC (my mediacenter software) i've installed new drivers for my network card (removed r8169 and installed r8168 ) but the problem is still there.
