Ubuntu Servers :: Can't Connect To Server (file Or Remote Terminal) From Laptop
Jan 23, 2011
I have an ubuntu fileserver and an ubuntu laptop both running 10.10.For some reason I can't connect to the server (file or remote terminal) from the laptop, even though I can access ssh through terminal on my mac and have been able to mount the filesystem on another computer running the ubuntu liveCD. I just get the error 'no route to host'.I've tried turning off the firewall on the laptop and re-installing ssh on both computers, but I don't have a clue what to do next!
Desktop Server Linux OEL 5 (not wireless) cable connected to the WRT54G router port. (I can go to the Internet with this server, but not able to communicate other computers on the WRT54G Wireless Network. Even though, the Linux Server is connected to the WRT54G router port.) From the Hyper Terminal Wireless laptop Windows/XP, I want to connect to my Linux Server.
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 support a small business which runs a headless Ubuntu Server (10.04 32bit) as a file server which is accessed by Windows machines.Although the company has it's own back-up procedure they have decided to back-up some (none sensitive) files online. The have chosen FileFactory (http://www.filefactory.com/) as the host for this. FileFactory allows files to be uploaded to their server by FTP however I do not know how to set this up on the server.
The idea, if it is possible, is to connect to FileFactory through FTP and then synchronise the data using an Rsync command.I normally access the server through Webmin and it has vsFTP installed. I can access the company's server by FTP from inside and outside of the network so I know that vsFTP is working for incomming connections however I cannot work out how to configure it to connect to the FileFactory server.
my laptop seems to have a bad HDD, and I was thinking of trying to make it a "thin client." However since it is a laptop obviously I want to take it places. Is it possible to make a terminal server and "thin client" connect through the internet and not just LAN?The reason I quote thin client is because in my mind I am still going to need to use some HDD so I can connect to the internet and find my server.
To make things easier to read refer to the above as "question 1" and the velow as "question2" Thank you. And sorry for the inconvience. These topics I felt were to similar to make separate topics.I also have another question, the files I have on my server can be accessed by anyone on the network(added a second HDD and network shared it) how can I make it so that the LAN clients have to "login" (or it uses their computers login info to send them to only their files? And if that is possible can we expand it to allow me to use those logins through the internet?
I just started to run Fedora/Linux on my laptop... I was using XP and using putty to connect to Linux servers at work. I am assuming I can use the terminal editor supplied with Fedora to connect to remote linux server? Can I uses the terminal to connect to remote linux server? How do accomplish this?
how to get the terminal displayed on my serverbox to show up in a terminal on my laptop. I have a minecraft server running on ubuntu server edition 10.04 on a headless server. I also have a monitor, but it's a big bulky CRT and my girlfriend doesn't like having a huge amount of stuff tucked behind our chair where the router is (wifi wasn't working right, nor is it stable).
Essentially, when I ssh into the box, it creates a new terminal for me to input things on. That's nice when I need to edit stuff in the background, but when I want to input commands on the server directly, there's no real way to do that without blindly typing on my keyboard on the box itself. Not to mention, I can't see anything if something goes wrong. A friend of mine mentioned the 'screen' command, and that sort of works I guess, but it still doesn't show the minecraft server output, nor let me input.
is there a way to get a physical terminal output to display on a remote ssh terminal screen?
I have installed lamp server on a computer i have for website development. i use the latest ubuntu server 9.10, apache, php, mySql, Webmin - all the latest versions. it has been running very smoothly for a while now, accessing both from internal network as well as from outside.my problem is very strange - whenever i connect using ftp client to my server from outside, to do a "massive" file operation like uploading a big number of files or deleting an entire directory, my computer/server "crashes" and i lose connection to it for a few minutes. i cannot access it via ftp, not ssh, and neither of the website installed on it run (http). i just have to wait about 10 minutes for the server to come back again.Like i said - it only happen when accessed from the outside (internet). if i do the same operation from a local computer (the same network) no problem there.
I need to install in my centos 5.3 a remote sesion login like a Terminal Server on Windows. I tried to use a VNC but I have a problem and it is that the user must be loged before on local machine. I need to can wake on lan my server and log in with that program.
I'm trying to install postgresql 8.3 on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS server and I'm running into problems starting it. Commands I've done # apt-get install postgresql postgresql-common Things I've tried Starting it manually
# /etc/init.d/postgrsql-8.3 start
Nothing appears in my /var/run/postgresql When I try and start psql as the postgres user I get the following error psql: could not connect to server: No such file or directory Is the server running locally and accepting connections on Unix domain socket "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432"? I've been following the docs at: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PostgreSQL
I am implementing an automated backup scheme so I created a shell script which first creates SQL dumps for all MySQL databases, then retrieves all websites from the /var/www directory of a remote server. The latter is working as I am using rsync to get the remote files.However, the MySQL dumps being retrieved are the ones from the local server which is not what I want. I want to get the SQL dumps from the remote server as well.I have a tunnel between the local and remote server which I can connect to without using any password (I added the public key to the authorized_hosts), so I tried to add the following code to the script:
I then attempted to retrieve the SQL dumps and exited from the remote server. However this does not work as I still have to enter exit manually in the terminal for the SQL dumps to be retrieved from the remote host. I don't know why this is happening. This is what the script is trying to do:
//connect to remote server ssh firstname.lastname@example.org //retrieve SQL dumps
Is there a way to connect to the remote host AND run the script's code on THAT remote host?
I install one server in my system(linux 5.0) and accessing that server through the 127.0.0.1 private ip address(lo). While i connect to a remote server for validating registry it gives me the error and unable to connect to remote server. here some of the files i give here in below to know my system network configuration
I installed dovecot on my server and now the imap and pop3 ports are open.But when I want to telnet it, it's not possible.Code: Trying 127.0.0.1...telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out.Also I can't any ports else. But I can connect to it from other computers. I tried to connect to this from my PC and it was successful.
I am at a loss. I can not access my work remote desktop via the terminal server client on my wired box running Ubuntu 10.10. My wireless laptop is able to connect right away once I established the VPN connection. The VPN connection is established on both boxes with no problems.
When I tried the Terminal Server Client on my wired boxed, it says it can not establish a connection. Yet my wireless box gets connected immediately!
I check the /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf and the /etc/resolv.conf to see if there were any differences, but they are essentially the same. When I have the vpnc connection, they both recognize it and I am able to ping the IP address shown when I do a "ifconfig" on the terminal.
What can be the problem? Anything I need to configure on a wired computer versus a wireless one? What else can I check?
I had my Ubuntu Linux 8.10 Server working fine. I moved the location. The only change was the IP. I changed interfaces to reflect my new IP. Everything works except now I can not connect to my server using my laptop running XP. Before the move I had no problem connecting to the server with my laptop. Windows can see the server but will not connect. Can changing the server IP affect Samba?
I'm trying to get VNC working on Damn Small Linux. I installed the package, and I can get the viewer to work. However what I want to do is get the server working so that I can remote connect to users. When I do connect instead of the active session all I get is a grey screen with an xterm window. I've done a lot of searching for this, but cannot seem to find a good answer. What I'd like to do is connect to the native X session. I've tried changing things in the xstartup file to things such as "-display :0" but it still doesn't work.
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?
I have problem with connection to mssql 2000 from centos. i have installed php, freetds, unixOBDC on server Centos. My mssql server on another computer (windows xp). Now, when i tried to connect mssql with php : >> mssql_connect("192.168.179.100","sa","sa")
Centos return to me "Unable to connect to server: 192.168.179.100 in /var/www/html/work/test.php on line 15 "
note: mssql is running on windows, and user and password is same "sa".
I have this old Toshiba Tecra 730CDT laptop, pretty useless with it's 150MHz Pentium processor and 48MB RAM. I am considering to throw it out for good. But, before I do it, I wanted to hear maybe it is still possible to use it:
1) perhaps there is some really thin linux distro that would let me to connect to a virtual PC on a server, transmit the mouse and keyboard events, and get the image and sound streamed back.
2) Maybe there is some other smart use of such gear, like installing it in car or something. I doubt it though, because it's heavy (8lbs~3.6Kg), bulky and energy-inefficient. But still... it's so hard to accept that such smart pile of electronic must go to the junk yard.
Is there any software that will do full mirroring between a local and a remote file system. I have a server (9.04) and a laptop (9.10). Each user has shared a shared directory on the server, and on the laptop. Updates to files may be done on either system. I want to keep both copies syncronised. Currently I use a script based on rsync (scheduled by cron) to keep the local and remote copies in sync.
The problem with this approach is that rsync only seems to be able to handle deletion of files if one file system is the master, which is not the case in my set-up. If I move a file to a different directory, rsync will reinstate the old file as well as copying the new one. I was hoping there was some software that could do proper mirroring between the 2 systems, but6 so far I cannot find anything.
Does anyone know the best and simplest way to do this? I'd like the share to be mounted over the tunnel on boot with as little scripting as possible and be as secure as possible without exposing more than one port to the outside. I will be trying this method: [URL]... once the tunnel is established and 'always on' NFS would take care of the file system mount obviously. Lots of the information I have been reading is not up to date it seems. Does anyone have any experience with this?
I need to parse the file of same name which exist on different servers and calculate the count of string existed in both files.Say a file abc.log exist on 2 servers.I want to search for string "test" on both files and calculate the total count of search string's existence.For example if file abc.log on server 1 has string "test" 2 times and file abc.log on server 2 has string "test" 4 times.then the output will beStringName : Countexampletest : 6 timesNote : I have created the password less connectivity using ssh-keygen.
