Ubuntu Networking :: Transfer A Lot Of Data From Laptop To Computer?
Mar 14, 2011
I am trying to transfer a lot of data from my laptop to my computer. Both are running Ubuntu 10.04 and both have Samba installed, and folders are setup for sharing. The laptop has a 56Mbps Wireless G built in module, and the computer has a Airlink AWLL6075 Wireless N USB Adapter 300Mbps. (I got the USB adapter working with the internet, since there was an issue with it just working out the box)
I have a wireless network, since wired is out of the question. The router is a Belkin Play N600 HD if that makes any difference. When i try to transfer the files across the speed of the transfer maxes out at about 785 Kbps (My Internet speed is 7Mbps=875 KB/s). It seems that the file is being sent to the router and then the internet and back to the router and then my computer.
I figure that bottleneck is my Laptop at 56Mbps, but that still gives a theoretical max of 7MB/s even at a low connection/link counting it at 24Mbps would still be 3MB/s. I even tried making a wireless Ad-Hoc network to transfer the files but when i went to Network it wouldn't show any shares.
I'm missing something to make it go faster and i really can't figure out what it is, maybe because I am too close to it.
i have got a laptop for the first time that i'll be taking to college. I have a lot of data on my PC which i want to transfer to my laptop. My computer has Lucid 32bit while laptop has 64 bit installed,Data is too much and transfering via usb drives will take a lot of time.. I do not know how to set up a network.
I have a number of queries but will start with one. I presently operate 11.04 Classic (no effects). OS is NOT set up as dual boot. As I am considering purchasing a new Desktop, I am wondering what is the best way to recover such things as folders, Firefox bookmarks etc. for four users.
I do have a external HDD which I guess could be used for a possible backup if that is the way to go! The new computer will probably have Windows 7 installed with which I assume I would probably dual boot.
Recently I had a situation where I had to transfer data from a PC to a Mac. Usually we simply convert the data as necessary, ie. bookmarks, contacts, etc. move the info to a dropbox account and use Windows networking to access the dropbox from a Mac. Well, there was a network issue and it was suggested that I boot to Ubuntu and do this. We do have Ubuntu on a flash drive but I was lost from there. Can anyone point me in the direction of documentation or assist me in understanding how this would be accomplished? I have a Mac, PC and Linux box at home so hopefully I have all the necessary tools to test this out.
I am quite newbie with Linux networking and I want to know if there exist a log in Linux where errors during transfers are stored. I mean, when I'm transferring data between two hosts is there any way to log somewhere (where?) the errors or warning during the transfer? That is, connection failures, TCP or UDP errors, etc.? Is there any "log level" to select the errors to be displayed in the log not to work with a huge log file?
I bought a laptop today (Compaq Presario cq62) and loaded Ubuntu 10.04 on it. Everything has been running great, but the Wifi has been acting up. It connects to my router for a few seconds to a minute, and then stops all data transfer (although it still shows that I am connected to the internet). My other computers running Mac work fine. I took my laptop to another place with wifi, and it did the same thing.
The data transfer seems to stop when there is a lot going on. Whenever I try downloading new software, it gets to exactly 5% then stops. If I disconnect the wifi, and reconnect it works again for another minute. I may need to be walked through any terminal codes.
On that note, where would be a great place to read up on using Ubuntu (online book?)
i am using NCTUns simulator and having problem while receiving message from an OBU. sending a message works properly but recving creates problem and fails. i am using exactly the same function as used by the developers in the demos but still no luck. i copy the code attch the screen shots to have a look
sendto() and recvfrom() are used for message transfer. they both return >-1 if they are executed successfully. please have a look in the screenshots. agentClientReportStatus is the built in packet format which im using here whose fields i filled manually are in the code below.
agentClientReportStatus *message,*mssg; int remainTime,n,n2,n3,i,sendingaddress,value; sockaddr_in cli_addr; timeval now;
I have a FC13 box that has both Gnome and KDE sessions installed.
I have noticed on the KDE session that data transfer rates are slower than when I use Gnome.
In Gnome, I can transfer files between my FC13 machine and my Ubuntu 10.04 pc at a rate of 6.5 MB/s (52 Mb/s if my maths is correct), but in KDE the rate is only 3.5 MB/s (28 Mb/s).
"ethtool eth0" shows my NIC speed as 100 Mb/s. Obviously I am not hitting anywhere near that speed in either session, (a separate article may be happen in the future to address that), but I am curious as to why KDE is that much slower for file transfer.
I have an old computer I have set Ubuntu up on to use it to learn about web services, networking and sys admin.As a first step I have installed the LAMP packages successfully. I want to reach my ubuntu computer from my laptop through my home wireless setup.
On the server I open a browser put this in the address bar and get to the "It works!" page so assume its correct.I go to my laptop, put the same number in the browser and am told that there's a problem loading that page.I figure ok, could be security or ports or something so i ping it to see if it work on that level and it doesn't.I go to my laptop, get the ip for it and then try to ping from ubuntu to my laptop - that doesn't work either.Pinging the router from both computers works fine though.What do I do now?
I can share my phone's 3G data with my 10.10 running laptop using usb tether; the phone has no wireless or bluetooth capability. Is it possible to set up my tethered laptop to share the 3G data with another device via the laptop's wireless?NKS!
I am newbie to linux, I am dealing with Fedora core 13. I have already succeedded in building an ad hoc network and a WLAN network. My next step is to get some networking statistics such delay, throughput, etc. So, I need traffic to flow through the network for both multimedia traffic and bulk data traffic. How to send files between nodes on the network (I found commands ftp, rcp but do not know whether they are the correct choice for this). ID their any application to perform this?
Also, I want to perform some video streaming between two nodes to study the behavior of real time data transfer. Is thier any application to perform this?
I have two network cards in my computer (Debian). One (eth0) is connected to the router which is connected to the internet, the other one (eth1) is connected to my laptop (Gentoo). Now I want to surf the web both on my computer and on my laptop. I obeyed some tutorials "Linux as router":
2. Laptop has IP 192.168.0.2 and this is the output of 'cat /etc/network/interfaces' on my computer:
takada:/etc/network# cat interfaces # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface
But a ping from my laptop to 192.168.1.1 (router to internet) still gives:
I connected my HP Pavillion laptop to a 1360x768 Vizio TV. On the TV it displays my laptop but on my laptop it has a black screen. How do I fix it so I can see my laptop screen on my laptop and on my TV at the same time?
I used to be able to do this with this TV as well as my friend's Samsung. I'm using a VGA connector. What should I do to have my laptop screen on my laptop and on my TV at the same time?
I have a situation where I am trying to move some data from a Linux computer to a Windows computer. In all there is 700GB of data to move in about 1.5 million files, so I don't want to do this over the network.My first thought was to use an external USB hard drive and create an NTFS partition and copy the files from the linux computer to mount on the Windows computer. After 4 days of copying without completion I abandoned that idea. I thought the NTFS might be slowing it down, so I created an EXT3 partition. 4 Days later it was still copying. I did some calculations and there was no way the USB 2.0 connection was that slow. I then used ddrescue and cloned the drive to be copied overnight and it took about 12 hours. i was able to mount the USB drive under Linux and access the files appropriately. The only problem is that I can not access that USB drive on my Windows 7 computer. I have tried Explore2fs, DiskInternals Linux Reader, and Ext2 Installable File System For Windows, but none of them is recognizing the external drive.
How can I transfer data from one user account to the other? I wish to delete one of the accounts but before that I want to transfer all the data in that account to the other account so that my data is saved.
I am running ubuntu 10.4 lts desktop and ubuntu 9.10 server with the gui active. On both of these machines the data transfer rates over usb and lan have slowed down quite considerably. Also over multiple devices, not the same hardware everytime I try to transfer something.
For the past few days, i have been trying to fix a common error related to mtp devices such as creative zen. Because of the new updated libmtp8 library, it is impossible to transfer files into any mtp devices. However there is a fix that will remove this issue.
1. Get the older karmic version of libmtp8 from here: URL... 2. Install this package from terminal using: sudo dpkg -i libmtp8*.deb 3. Lock libmtp8 from the synaptic package manager, so it doesn't get updated. 4. Uninstall and then downgrade any mtp packages (through packages.ubuntu.com) that become broken after step 2 to the karmic version. 5. Enjoy.
I need make the copy of my images system on the second PC. But I can`t transfer its data. It seems that the way to images is stored absolutly, for example /home/john/images/holiday. If the second user`s name is Marry, the way will be /home/marry/images/holiday and Shotwell don`t accept this.
I have installed Xubuntu 11.04. I want to see where when data is transfered by XUbuntu(through internet). In task manager i didn't find any such thing. In fedora there is system monitor where networking information is given to user where is such thing in XUbuntu. My main reason for asking such thing is that i have limited internet connection i don't want that Xubuntu update itself or any other such thing. you may also tell me how to stop updates of Xubuntu 11.04.

Is there an easy way to transfer Webserver data from one ubuntu install to a new one? I know I'll need to get the stuff in /var/www and (somehow) the Mysql data, but are there files elsewhere to get? Or is there a better way than trying to copy all the various files?
i have a 200gb hard drive and im upgrading to a 1tb hard drive and i want all my stuff like settings and files on my new hard drive whats the best and easiest way to transfer all my stuff from the old hard drive to the new one
I'm going to be needing to copy over 2 terabytes from one drive to another in a couple of days and I need something that I can use to transfer the files with CRC checking. Something comparable to Teracopy in Windows.
Open Source is an absolute must. I'm running on Debian and getting away from Windows to get away from all of the proprietary software. If it's going to be proprietary I might aswell just boot back into Windows as far as I'm concerned.
Some of the features that would be nice but not needed
-GUI (preferably gtk) -Pause/Resume (it's going to be a long transfer so it would be nice.)
Those would be nice but CRC checking is an absolute must have for so much data.
So the deal is, I've a desktop where I got all of my movies, music etc stored and a laptop which is clean.
And I want to get a tip on some software or ways of moving my movies through my local network.
The reason why I want to do it is because my laptop has an HDMI port that I can hook up to my tv and my desktop doesn't.
I know of SSH and so on, but just wondering if there's an easier/better way, maybe a way to stream the movies from my desktop without any quality loss onto the laptop? I don't prefer SSH due to having to open my ports, I'm quite paranoid about that, want to keep my things impact and secure. (Both of the computers run Ubuntu)
I'm getting a really low speed (2-3 mbps) while transferring data to my USB drive and external hard drive. I've heard this problem's there in Karmic but not in Jaunty but i have Jaunty and yet I'm facing this problem.
