Ubuntu Servers :: Cannot See Server In Network Places
Feb 4, 2011
I installed Ubuntu Server 10.10 today on an old laptop. I then used webmin to configure it and enabled windows networking, the laptop is in the same workgroup as another win7 laptop and a win xp desktop. However, I can't see the server in My network places.
I did set samba server up. I just modified only one configuration from default /etc/samba/smb.conf file.
Just workgroup = MSHOME to workgroup = WORKGROUP. And browseable = yes. Beacuse my xp workgroup is WORKGROUP. So I changed as same workgroup name both unbuntu and XP.
But I couldn't find samba pc on network places at XP. I have started smbd and nmbd already. There is a ridiculous something. I can access samba at XP only typing \samba IP address. But why I can't see at network places. I am using ubuntu 10.04 TL.
I have a simple problem where Windows machines can connect to shares on my Fedora server (via SAMBA), but only when using the IP address. When Windows users to go Network (in Vista and 7) or Network Places (XP), then all computers on the network show up in that window except for the Fedora server. How can I get my server to appear in that space? Although I can connect via IP address, we are using some programs that can only find shares by the computer name (aka if it's found in the Network window). I have checked and rechecked that the workgroup name is indeed correct.
I'm running ubuntu maverick and i'm having issues with some things.First off, Alt+F2 no longer opens the Run Dialog. I have checked the keyboard shortcuts and settings and re-entered the command but it still doesn't work. I also checked the compiz settings for gnome compatibility. The odd thing is that all of my other Function key shortcuts work, just not Alt+F2 Not sure what else to try.
Next, I am not able to open Network in Places. I click it, then I get a loading icon for half a second then nothing opens. Also, when I click Places > Connect to Server, the only option that I have is custom location. The issue with this is that I used to have several other options like FTP, SSH, Windows Share, etc.
I have a home server running Lucid which basically runs our home lan, but I also wanted to be able to run transmission-daemon over an ipredator VPN connection completely independently of the ethernet port (as far as the application layer is concerned anyway). Most of the howtos for setting up VPN use the VPN as the default route, however I still wanted to run a webserver, dnsmasq etc, not to mention free bandwidth access to my ISP etc.
Thus, this howto. The ppp connection still tunnels through eth0, but as far everthing else is concerned my server has two independent network ports eth0 and ppp0 and applications use the default route via eth0 to our router unless explicitely directed down pppX. I assume that you already have transmission-daemon installed.
I am trying to permanently integrate a windows network drive into my Ubuntu 11.04. I don't have Nautilus - I am using Rox Filer instead. I am trying to get this job done according to this link here (Method 2): [URL]. I want to integrate the network drive as described in Method 2, but I don't have Places->Network. Is there a way I could do this without Nautilus?
I'm having problems connecting to our network time capsule the capsule appears in my network places and I can open it up but there are no files present. However when on my house mates Mac there are many different file types present. At first I thought it may be a formatting problem but the files can be accessed from a windows machine also.
Read my Linux distribution from my user data. I have configure different network places bookmarks but accidentally, I introduced the wrong username in that one, thus it is listed as a bookmark for a network place, but it will not connect. How do I erase these bookmarks?
Recently my OS hard drive died on my wonderful ubuntu server, so I took that chance and upgraded it to 10.04 ... Everything works great except I cannot get any other computer in the house(windows and linux) to see the computer or the samba shares. It is not just the shares that are missing but the server itself does not show up. For my windows machine I verified the workgroup is correct and it still does not show up as a device on the network, ditto for my ubuntu desktop install.Here is my smb.conf
The Short VersionTwo Vista machines connected to a 2Wire wireless router (AT&T UVerse) via DHCP.One (headless) Ubuntu 9.10 Server machine connected (tried both wireless and wired at different times) to the same 2Wire router via a static IP.Samba is installed on the Ubuntu Server.Vista computers connect perfectly to Ubuntu Server.Various file transfers/communications ensue.Ubuntu Server 'disappears' from network.Sometimes after a couple of minutes.Sometimes longer.Cannot ping server.Cannot SSH into server.It's just 'gone'. Reboot server. Everything's fine (can ping, find, connect, etc.) until (some minutes later) server 'disappears' again.
The Long Version
Code: |---------------------| | Vista Machine #1 | | 192.168.1.70 (DHCP) | |---------------------|[code]..... The Question: Why won't my damned Ubuntu server just stay connected to the network?
i have just installed the 10.04 LTS server on my system.I set up a file server for my windows computers and can connect to the server. However, I was going to update and install a couple of packages, but My system cannot find the update or download server for itIs anyone else experiencing this problem. If not, any ideas on how to fix it.
Does anyone know, or have any experience with, what the best way to set a network interface on a linux server to be up - so that virtual machines can bridge through the physical interface, but not allow anyone on a network to connect to the server itself? Thank you
I've installed Ubuntu Server 9.10 on a small VIA C7 pc. Every now and then (it can take days or hours) the server goes to sleep. It can't be reached by network. If I hit the keyboard it comes to life within a second.I've looked in the bios and I cannot find any option that would prevent this. I used to run Debian Lenny on the same machine and never experienced the problem.
I have a server on my home network. It's currently running a DNS server (bind9) and an HTTP caching server (squid).What I would like to do is redirect all outgoing port 80 connections to the squid server and also make the server responsible for managing DHCP on the network.
Do I just need to install a DHCP daemon on the server, disable it on the router, then set my server as the default gateway and configure iptables to route all connections like I want? Or is it more complicated than that? Also, would that mean that all communication between two computers on the network will go through the server?
I had problems with my Ubuntu Server 10.4, so I reformatted and reinstalled (I only choose OpenSSH from the install menu), then after it rebooted I installed apache. So I can access the machine via web, ssh and scp from within my local network, but strangely outside my network I can access it from web, but not ssh or scp. Nothing has changed on my router.
I am trying to setup a DNS server on my local network. When I set linux clients to use it, it works as expected. However, when I set windows clients to it, the root name doesn't resolve. For example, I have a zone called daniel. On linux "anything.daniel" resolves to the correct ip as does "daniel" which is the behavior I want. However, on windows 7, "anything.daniel" resolves correctly, but "daniel" doesn't. I am new to BIND9 so my config is mostly copy and pasted. Here is my zone file for daniel (where #.#.#.# is the ip I want daniel to resolve to):
@ IN SOA ns1.daniel. admin.daniel. ( 2007031001 28800 3600
I have a smoothwall box I can ssh into via places --> Connect to server. I have built a ipcop box to replace it with the same ip but can't seem to ssh into it. I get this when I try the following at the terminal:
I am looking for some advice on how best to lock down our office network to keep our employee's from wasting time on sites like facebook and ...... This will be my first time setting up a server as a gateway in a production environment so I thought I should get some suggestions on what the best packages would be to do this.
I essentially need to lock down our network so that i can monitor what everyone is doing on the Internet and block it if needed. it doesn't have to be web based or have a bunch of gui's, im fine with command line, configs and log files, but it would be nice.
I'm interested in commercial products as well as long as they are linux based.
I'm trying to setup a NAS for my network, the only problem is that I can't figure out how to do it. On my network I have about 3 computers however only I only use 2 of them so I thought that maybe I could use the third computer in such a way that I could access it 24/7 from the internet as a server for all of my files (school papers, music etc etc...). The only problem is that I don't know where to get started. Both of the computers I'm currently using are Windows and the one that I,hopefully, can turn into a server is running on Ubuntu.
I am sure there is a nice guide out there somewhere but I cannot find it. My question is: The company I work for has a fully windows environment, servers and clients. The current server is on a Windows 2000 Server and I plan on replacing that. I wish to use Ubuntu server with Joomla for this purpose. This is my first venture into a purely command line interface, although I have played around with Ubuntu desktop in the past. My first question right now is: How do I log onto the Windows Network (active directory) from the ubuntu server. eth0 is reporting a valid internal IP on the network, so its been picked up okay.
Edit: I also want to assign a static internal IP address instead of grabbing from the DHCP. Edit2: Thinking about it, as the ubuntu server and windows server can ping each other do I even need to log into the domain? The server will only be serving web pages.
How to configure DNS server for my small network. In Fedora Linux operating system I want to use Linux as a DNS server for my small office. there are files " /etc/hosts" and "/etc/resolv.conf ".
what is the purpose of these files and in which situation we use these files? For configuring a new DNS server. how can i configure my own DNS server for my small office? Any blog or site in which they show steps to configure DNS server.
I have two ubuntu boxes. One is a 9.04 desktop edition and the other is a 9.10 server edition I am working on some code that needs to be highly tolerant of bad network connections. It sends transactions to a central database, but when the network is not available, it caches them locally to retry later.
I have the code working beautifully on my desktop box. but when I test it on this other box (the one running server edition) there is a HUGE DELAY every time it tries and fails to send a transaction to the database when the network is down.
I tested a little further, and I found that if i unplug my network cable and run ping somehost on the desktop, it fails instantly saying "ping: unknown host somehost" But if I unplug the cable on the server box and run the same ping command it lingers for about 40 seconds before the ping fails.
Does anybody have any idea why this might be happening? Is this a 9.04 vs 9.10 difference? Is this a desktop vs server difference? Is there some package I can install, or some config setting I can change that will make the server box insta-fail just like the desktop does?
I have a good grasp on windows server 2003 but I don?t want to pay outrageous license fees for software and services and clients. I am newish to terminal as I only know a few commands. I have no problem installing services for the server edition for 10.04. Its just understanding whats going wrong to troubleshoot. I guess there is you guys and I have good working knowledge of Cisco's IOS's so I understand things like routing tables and interfaces and such for troubleshooting.
Questions I have... Can I install the desktop version of 10.04 and just install the server services? I was looking at the server guide [URL] and would like to know if these can all be installed on the desktop edition without too much trouble. I would imagine one could just use the server edition but I would really want a graphical user environment for some of the activities, if not all that I can. This would be becuase on my skills in the CLI. I priced out a server from Dell. I fits my budget perfectly if I go the Ubuntu 10.04 route. I was wondering if anyone sees any conflicts with the hardware for the Ubuntu OS....
I would like my Ubuntu server to show up as a drive on my XP home machine. I have loaded samba on to the server but I can only get it to show as the printer and faxes under my work group. Also is there a way to have my Ubuntu laptop to auto mount the server when I am on my home network?
Does anyone know how to go about setting up a secure IMAP email server that is able to be accessed from outside the network? Similar to how you can access your google email account from your computer using Thunderbird.
I have a lab of 10 computers with ips from 192.168.1.120 to 192.168.1.130 the server's Ip is 192.168.1.116When I am on client computer I type the server's Ip address on the browser and it works. All i want is that instead of entering my servers Ip I could just enter an address like: example.lan
I'm attempting to run a DHCP server on my home network to enable PXE booting for ethernet clients, but I'm having quite a few issues getting it all up and running. I'm not entirely sure what is wrong, but I keep encountering errors in syslog as follows:
Feb 27 02:26:46 servnerr-1 dhcpd: Wrote 0 leases to leases file. Feb 27 02:26:46 servnerr-1 dhcpd: Feb 27 02:26:46 servnerr-1 dhcpd: No subnet declaration for eth0 (192.168.1.3).
Networking is not exactly my strong suit, but I would like to get this up and running if at all possible.
So basically what I am trying to do is install Ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell Poweredge 2600 server. Right now I dont care wither I get the server version or the desktop version, I just need to get it on their. this is what I have run into. When installing the regular Ubuntu 10.04 desktop for 32bit, the server just locks up on the very first ubuntu install screen and the keyboard lights just start blinking non stop. When I use the server version, the server get to the Detecting Network Hardware and locks up at 94% and the keyboard will also start blinking nonstop. I have looked all over for an answer to this problem and have yet to find one. This guy figured out how to make it work but he never mentioned what version he was using. [URL]..
On this server I have 6 HDs, 5 of them are RAID 0 with 1 Hot Spare. I have also tried using the ubuntu-10.04.1-alternate-i386.iso.torrent and still had the same problem. I have spent the last 3 days searching all over google and the forum to an answer but had no luck.
