Ubuntu Servers :: Machine Shadowing Crashes With Message "The Connection With Remote Server Was Shut Down, Please Check Your Network Settings And Try Again."
Sep 5, 2010
I am using debian testing on my office pc, but i need to access it's desktop from time to time. So i need No machine/teamviewer software that can provide me with possibility to interact my desktop. The problem is, that i want to run shadowed session type, because teamviewer is not good for me. So, when i run no machine in shadowed mode, it crashes with message "The connection with remote server was shut down, please check your network settings and try again." The log is here:
I am running a local webserver mainly for development. I have everything set up. The issue I currently have is that I cannot shut down the machine from the command line. I can issue the command but the machine remains on. I also cannot get to the desktop via VNC.The reason for this, is that there is no monitor attached so Ubuntu says that it is trying to run in Low Graphics Mode. I found this out as I plugged the monitor in to my server.So question is, how do I get around this? How can I set up Ubuntu to get past this, or do I need to install Ubuntu Server?
I have local and remote networks that have various printers. I can add any printer (local or remote) to any PC, except for one PC that's refusing to allow remote connection (it used to, but doesn't now!). The problem PC has two printers connected and work OK as a local printer, but both display same problem when attempting to connect from any remote PC via YaST. Using 'Connection Wizard> CUPS Server' connection method requires IP address of remote PC and printer name. But if I correctly select either of the two printers I get an error message:
"PING 192.168.1.149 (192.168.1.149) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 192.168.1.149: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=1.12 ms
Both printers are set to 'Accept Print Jobs' and 'Share Printers> Allow remote access' permits all networks to connect. why this PC is requiring the root password?
I was trying to install PEAR on a remote Ubuntu server using putty. I ran an apt-get install php-pear command and everything went smoothly, but now i cannot access the website as it says 'can't establish a connection to the server' and in firebug, it shows the status 'aborted'. I even tried adding the pear path in php.ini file and restarting the apache server but no luck.
I have a problem with my Terminal Server Client, I cannot seem to connect to any windows server via IP address. Can anyone please recommend any tool I could use to connect? I need to work on the server for admin interfaces example Admin Kits for workspace protection
I currently run Win 7 and want to upgrade my computer to a server to accomplish the following... I have a VPN Service. I want the server machine to connect to a VPN providing a secure connection. Then, I want all the machines in the house (windows based) to connect through the server onto the VPN connection. Hopefully this makes sense. Would it be better to stick to Windows Server 2008 or switch to Ubuntu?
I am able to telnet to the server via a remote connection, but for some reason, it will not accept mail. ere is the bounce back email I am getting.Quote:This is the mail system at host smtp.mydomain.net.I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could notbe delivered to one or more recipients.

HP's apparently all but useless Linux site suggests that their hplip drivers give you that capability. However, it also seems to expect that I will be running a GUI to use their tools.
My CP-1215 is attached to my server which doesn't have a GUI installed.
Previously I'd been using the open source CUPS driver, which seemed to work pretty well. However, I recently ran low on one colour of toner which messed up the printing. The toner-out lights on the printer never cam one, so replacing the toner cartridge was not the first thing I tried to fix it.
I've just installed the hplip / hp-plugin driver which also seems to be working. However, the CUPS web interface doesn't allow me to retrieve the toner status.
Has anyone had any luck retrieving the toner levels from an HP colour laserjet printer?
I had to register with a new username, because I could not remember my logon details and have since changed ISP so could not get details sent, anyway that aside to the problem.
I upgraded to 11.04 and all went well (hence posting here and not in the Upgrade section) and it is running fine, well until yesterday.
I ran the update manager as I usually do when first entering Ubuntu and it did an update but then gave me an error message about file permissions and to check my connection (which was connected OK).It has also affected the Software Installer, and now I can not install any new software.
Is this a generic problem with the latest update or is it just my Dell Inspiron 1545 please?
I have a problem with remote connection over SSH and Xming, Every time I connect to Linux host from Windows I have to run gnome-appearance-settings to restore scheme settings to the one set after directly loging to Ubuntu. Otherwise, all fonts sizes and colors are set in such a way that they are barely readable. Is there a way to save this configuration so I will not have to re-set it alays after login? Ubuntu version 10.10.
I just rented a godaddy dedicated, the ubuntu variety comes loaded with 8.04...(& I need PHP 5.3)Followed the directions here: URL...I did have to change my sources.list, everything after that went as expected (not like i'd know what to expect)At one point it asked if I wanted to update my grub/menu.lst to the release version, or use my old one, I updated it.Once the upgrade completed, I checked the menu.lst again to ensure it was gonna boot 10.04 (as warned by the guide)However once I sent reboot, I couldn't SSH back in, I waited 5m, 15m, tried again, still couldn't SSH then I had the server power cycled via my godaddy control panel, and still nothing, attempts on port 22 timed out & other ports were refused.
I think I overlooked something because, from what I've read here and there this is technically possible, I also just found this guide here:URL...The first user comment (above link/guide) seems to have a tip for what I'm trying.Anyways had the server re-provisioned via my control panel & I'm about to try again, only this time. uh, check the SSH settings post upgrade/pre restart?
I have recently installed fedora 14 and configured vpn to access my work network. I need to access some windows machines which although I can ping I cannot remote desktop into. When I go to Applications>Internet> Remote Desktop Viewer and put in the machine name (either just the machine name or the FQDN including the domain name) I get an error "Connection to <machinename> was closed".
im looking for a program that lets me monitor server remote a check if apache is running and if its not send out a mail pretty much something like the Big Brother projeckt was before they went comercial i found a few projekts but most havent been updated for years anyone got a clue on any active projekt that does this?
I deleted the firewall files "K09SuSEfirewall2_init", "K01SuSEfirewall2_setup", "S11SuSEfirewall2_setup" and "S01SuSEfirewall2_init" from "/etc/rc.d/rc5.d" in order to disable the firewall when rebooting.
As a consequence all network services are not working. I can't connect to any other machine nor to the internet.
I rebuilt the symbolic files based on the ones for runlevel 3, but still no network services are available.
Any suggestions how to make it work again? I'm using Suse 11.3.
I set up a print server with a USB printer attached. I can remotely bring up CUPS and print a test page, but I would like to be able to add a printer in windows like I normally would. Add printer, network work printer and so on, but I am not sure how to implement this on Ubuntu server. Do I need to use IPP or do I have to share it out using Samba? Oh, my server does not have a graphical desktop, it is strictly console based.
I have had a notebook with an ethernet plugged in cable before, sent a signal through the cable by resetting my router, and it switched my notebook on from cold. My question is, is there a way of doing this using a remote desktop client. Ideally, I would like a machine switched off at home running suse linux/windows, then have a client computer sent the remote request, this in turn activates the machine, which boots and then gives the rmote client control.
regarding a remote connection from my workplace to my home system. On my home a have a connection to the ISP and the provider is allocating a dynamic IP to my router. How can I connect from my work computer to the home computer? There are other application or other stuff for making this possible?
I am trying to Setup citrix ICA client 9 on Ubuntu 9.04 Server. I installed it very easily and I am not getting any lib error also. But when I try to connect to the citrix server, it fails with a pop up saying "Error in Network Connection Network or Dialup connection may be preventing ......" This is driving me crazy from 3 days. My project is to check the feasiblity of a Linux desktop
I installed OpenSuSE 11.3. The only "extra" package I put in after the install was VirtualBox-ose. The firewall is disabled. I gave the machine a static IP address. I can get to the Internet from the machine. I enabled sshd to start on boot with "chkconfig sshd on" and also verified the service is running on the machine. I can ssh user@localhost from the machine as well.
When I try to connect to SSH from another machine, I get a connection refused. I verify that the firewall is down. I also try to get to VNC -- same problem: Connection refused. I ping the machine for fun. If I try to SSH again, it sometimes gives me a logon? I would check the server logs for the connection refused, but I wouldn't know where to look. I started in /var/log/messages, but nothing seemed to jump out there. I also find it strange because I can RDP to a windows guest running under VirtualBox. The Windows guest uses Bridged Network and DHCP.
I also find it interesting that I sometimes type a "ping google.com" from the 11.3 box and it will just hang - no output. Then I open firefox and get to the internet. All of a sudden, ping starts to give output. Could this be a neetwork card issue? A configuration issue? I don't know where to start.
I may have to work in another state for some time, and I'd like to access my home machine desktop remotely, like this: Server - home machine, oS 11.4 64-bit, KDE 4.7, 1920 x 1200 screen (currently set to 24-bit color depth), 1 Mbps upload speed, behind a Dlink DL-524 router I manage.
Client: laptop, oS 11.4 64-bit, KDE 4.6.5, 1280 x 800 screen (also 24-bit color depth), unknown up/down speed - probably huge at work, crappy at apart hotel. I'd like to keep the server resolution, if possible, even if the client's is smaller. I want to be able to star/stop KDE apps in the server, move files between folders, and fix the issues that only happen when my wife is at the keyboard (it's a machine conspiracy, she says ). So I'd need to connect to the server's current session/user (which is myself, i.e., same login/password).
What do you recommend for this? I've read Swerdna's tutorial for 11.2/11.2 (a million seen malcomlewis xrdp 0.6 packages for 11.4 (you rock, malcomlewis!), as well as this thread: RDP into OpenSUSE 11.2, however most seem concerned with rdp between windows and linux boxes. Is there something better/faster/simpler for oS-to-oS RDP or should I use xrdp all the same?
1) ssh to a remote centos server using X11 forwarding 2) open the virt-manager remote application (the virtualization management app) 3) Open the remote console
Just to be clear, my local X11 crashes. I get back to the log in screen.
I get in my Xorg log:
Fatal server error:
-Is this enough for a bug report? -How I can make X dump a core file for better debugging? -Do -debug RPM packages still exist, and if so, should I install one for the X server and will this help with debugging, and if so, how do I install it.
