Ubuntu :: Run A Remote Unix Session Using System?

Aug 2, 2011

At the moment I am using Hummingbird Exceed on a windows PC to display X windows from a Unix server. The actual Exceed tool I use is called 'hwm' which I believe is basically an pc based X Windows manager. I do not need to configure anything other than the client computer name, IP address and screen definition and the server will then allow a connection and display the X windows on the client. I was wondering if there is an equivalent application I can run using Ubunto as a client insted of a Windows PC?

Programming :: Connect To Remote Unix Server Using Script?

Aug 4, 2010

1)We need to do a clean up a folder in a remote unix server . What is the best option to connect to remote server? how do we use ssh ? Is there any prerequisite to use ssh?

2) We have to SCP few files to another folder in a remote unix server . I formed the below command to use in script. Is it of correct usage? scp -r $POS_HOME/posctl [login nameip address:/home/username/directory]

I have seen public key/private key generation part for SCP. How do we handle this? Does this need to be done as unix admin?

Ubuntu Servers :: Connecting - Using A Remote X Session?

Nov 10, 2010

I've been working on this since last night (a few hours) but can't seem to find what I am looking for. I'll spare you the details of what I've tried already.

Could someone guide me through connecting to my Ubuntu server using a remote X session? The "kicker" is that I want to do this from a Knoppix LIVE CD. So whatever method I am given will have to be something that is common to most Linux distros.

I imagine I will need help with two important steps:

1) verifying that I have an xserver of some kind running on my server.

2) command line statement for starting the Xserver from the remote machine.

Ubuntu :: Remote Session In Separate Workspace

Feb 5, 2011

I am heavily using remote X11 via ssh (from Ubuntu to Ubuntu).The method I am using is connecting with ssh -X and then running the X application I want to use.Most of the times this is adequate but some times I need to have a desktop view. Running gnome-session in the ssh session, produces a couple of errors (printer and other hardware related) which appears normal but at the end it works. The problem is that desktops end up mixed up with windows from all sessions together and the panels and menus from the last session.

What I am trying to achieve is to have each gnome session in a specific workspace. It will be easy using shortcuts like ctrl-super-right/left to move between different machines. Can something like that be achieved?I know the easy solution would be to vnc to all machines and maximize the vnc viewer in the desired workspace, but this would be really slow and against the linux way of thinking (as is trying to get the remote gnome desktop, but that is another story).Another solution would be to open the gnome panels in a titled window, so that I can see them all at once and distribute them across workspaces. But how do I do that?

Ubuntu :: Remote Access Without An Active Logon Session?

Oct 10, 2010

I'm in the process of converting my Windows NT server to an ubuntu server box. I've been testing the server edition in a virtual machine and I only have one problem.

My server computer doesn't have a screen and i was wondering if i can logon to the computer using remote desktop without an active logon session already in progress.

At the moment, I need to be logged on in the desktop environment before i can connect to the remote desktop service in Ubuntu. In Windows, you don't need to have an active logon session to connect remotely (so you can startup a session without needing a screen). I would like to have the same, so i don't need to run to server just to logon after restarting it.

It is probably some service i need to start on system boot, but well, i'm not that familiar yet with linux servers, at least not to do that kind of stuff.

My users would also like to have a visual interface (which is why i installed the ubuntu-desktop from the repository).

Fedora :: Launch X Apps On A Remote Ssh Session?

Mar 5, 2010

Desktop computer (AMD64) running F12. Nothing unusual about it, stock install. Thinkpad laptop running Windows XP. Putty is installed, I can SSH to Fedora.

If I'm at the laptop, in a Putty session, how can I (for example) type "firefox" and have the resultant Firefox window appear on-the-laptop?

I generally have X running all the time on the desktop because I can't get the wireless network connection to function without NetworkManger (not that I really care because I'm rarely at a console screen and need net access).

Red Hat :: High Network Usage With Remote X Session

Aug 5, 2009

I am trying to figure out why the remote X performance of our RedHat 5.3 system is so bad. We have tried using X (Gnome session) from several different X Servers (Windows Xceed, Windows XWinPro, Linux Xnest - both Fedora 11 and Centos 5.3 and Mac OS Xnest) and the system is barely usable. I have monitored the network traffic on the RHEL system and it goes up to 6MB/s at some points, which seems a bit too high for X net traffic?I have disabled ipv6 and any ip_tables modules and that has helped a bit, but it's still not very good.I suspected the network hardware and driver, but I cannot see how that would cause network traffic problems.I wonder if there are any X Server network settings I might check, or whether trying XFCE would be a better option over Gnome. If so, do I have get the xfce group from a CentOS Repo, or is there something better suited to RHEL?

Software :: Running X-Server From Remote Shell Session?

Apr 7, 2010

How do I obtain information about the running x-server from a remote shell session? I want to know things like resolution, color depth, etc. My xorg.conf is basically empty. The only thing I can think of doing is to read the Xorg.0.log file which seems inefficient.

I thought that 'xrandr' displayed some text output but that behavior has changed (?). It seems to require an X display. Is there another way? Something I could incorporate into a shell script? (This is Fedora but that shouldn't really matter)

Now googling this comes up with solutions for X forwarding, but I don't want it to forward X I want it to display on the desktop.

Ubuntu :: Minimize Nxclient Remote Fullscreen Session Causes Blank Local Display?

Jun 9, 2011

I'm running nxfree to log into my remote xubuntu PC from my local xubuntu laptop since the X protocol was broken.Has been working fine. Recently upgraded from Lucid 32bit to Maverick 64bit Xubuntu.Now when I run nxclient in fullscreen mode, if I minimize the window (or just log out) my local display does not return.I'm left with just the background colour. The windows are still there but not visible. For example I can:* randomly right-click and a menu pertaining to the invisible window appears;* press alt-tab and cycle through the windows but activating one does not display it (it remains invisible);* press ALT-F and bring up the current active (but invisible) application file menu;Basically I press ALT-F and ALT-TAB and close everything and then log out and log back in to restore the windows/panels.

General :: Display The Source Machine During A Remote X Session In The Title Bar?

Aug 8, 2011

In the past, when I open a gvim session on a remote machine, the title bar of gvim would show the machine name in brackets. I am not sure if this was done by the remote gvim itself, or the local window manager. In the past I have used gnome2, although I am currently using unity (and finding it rather frustrating). Is there some setting I can change to always force remote windows to display the source machine?

Software :: Remote X Over SSH / Gnome Session Running On The Client Machine?

Oct 15, 2010

Running Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.04 over LAN; I can SSH -X into my server just fine, and am able to launch various applications (Nautilus, Gnome-Terminal, Disk Utility, etc) but I'd really like a Gnome desktop. When I've tried the various StartX commands and gnome-session, but something just isn't clicking. Is there a way to have a 'second' Gnome session running on the client over the first?

To pre-empt some obvious solutions; I don't wish to use VNC, the lag drives me nuts, and I'd like to keep my gnome session running on the client machine if possible. If it's not possible, that's fine; it just seems like there'd be a way to do it?
