Ubuntu Servers :: Get Sshd To Identify Correct Rsa Key For Different Users That Shares Same Folder

Jun 1, 2011

I'm setting up a svn server and would like users to share home dir. One problem is how to get sshd to identify the correct rsa key for the different users that shares the same .ssh folder. Will sshd even look for the key in a folder that isn't owned by the user trying to login?

Ubuntu Servers :: Add Users Form Laptop (10.10) And NFS Shares

Dec 1, 2010

I have a server (I will call it 14) it runs Ubuntu server 10.04 and I have my Ubuntu Laptop ( I will call it 3) that runs Ubuntu 10.10. I need to find a way to add users from my Laptop (user X) or a Windows machine user (Y). What I am trying to accomplish is to have file permissions some for Y only and some for X only and some for a group that contains X and Y. Now I have a Dir, on the server 14, with the owner Z (server user) and I gave it permission 760. Now my user X, from Laptop 3, (they have the same name in real life) is not able to access those files on a NFS share.

I would like to have the 760 perm and be able to access those files without doing a 777. I am thinking to add all users (XYZ)to a group and give read permissions for the group. My dilemma comes when the users are on different machines. I already created equal users on server with the same name but it does not do the trick. When connecting to server from 3 I can't access files that are owner by the group where user Z belongs (even if user X has the same name and password). I am thinking there has to be a deeper way of identifying users.

Ubuntu :: How To Identify The Correct Device

Apr 17, 2011

i'v 2 unmounted partitions /dev/sda8 , /dev/sda9 ... i do the following:

#assume sudo where applicable
mkdir /media/myMtPt
#mount sda8
mount /dev/sda8 /media/myMtPt


if i write anything to /media/myMtPt it'll go to /dev/sda9..but both /dev/sda8 and /dev/sda9 show same mount point /media/myMtPt.. so if somebody else has to find out (without checking the history) to which one will the o/p go if written to /media/myMtPt then what is the way out?

Ubuntu Servers :: Correct Permission Handling Apache Virtual Hosts In Home Folder?

May 2, 2010

i use virtual hosts to develop several web applications. These are located in my home folder under /home/user/projects/project After a fresh installation, i always get a 403 forbidden error. After googling and reading on this forum, several solutions are mentioned for this problem. But i can hardly believe putting using a chmod 755 on my home folder is a correct solution. What is the correct way of doing things in this situation?

Ubuntu Servers :: Folder And File Creation - Can't Successfully Share Editable Files Between Users

Feb 18, 2010

I'm trying to setup a Samba share for our work. I have it almost complete, however I can't successfully share editable files between users. The issue I'm having is that say User1 create a file test.txt, because of the 755 permissions, then User2, who has "writable" rights as per the smb.conf file, cannot edit that test.txt file.

Whevener I create a file with a user, its locked by that user. Is there a way I can set it that every folder/file a user creates is 777 ? I firgured that there's still security because of the "Valid users = " field in the smb.conf file.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Shares Used In Windows DFS Not Accessible To Remote Users

Feb 7, 2010

We have an existing Windows 2000 network that I am trying to add an Ubuntu 8.04 server to. I have put links into the windows domain DFS to the linux machine's samba shares.

The shares work fine for local users that are physically on the same network (192.168.0.X). Remote users from other offices or dialing in with a vpn client can not access the these particular folders off the DFS. However, they can map them directly from the ubuntu server.

Ubuntu :: Samba - Get The Correct Default Permissions When Users Create Directories Through Windows?

Apr 1, 2010

I've got a small issue that when a Windows user creates a new folder through Windows Explorer (from the menu or by right clicking) the new folder is only accessible to that particular user. Example: user SABKAR (member of the HR group) creates a new folder called MarcTestMenu in a shared Samba directory through Windows Explorer:


At this point user MORAMY cannot copy a file or open the directory MarcTestMenu. MORAMY gets a 'not accessible' error message in Windows. If I su to the Samba box and issue this command:


how I can get the correct default permissions when users create directories through Windows?

Ubuntu :: Gdm Using Incorrect Desktop Icons Folder / Correct This?

Feb 23, 2010

I mistakenly moved the /home/user/Desktop file to another location so now when my desktop starts it used the entire contents of my /home/user/ directory (except for the hidden contents) to create icons all over my desktop.
I have restored the Desktop folder to the correct location but it ignores it now and continues to show every file under /home/user as an icon.

How do I reset it to point to the original Desktop folder?

Ubuntu :: Moving Downloaded Files To Correct Folder?

Sep 1, 2011

I'm looking for a script or a bittorrent client which is able to move a file after downloading and placing it in a specific folder depending on the file type. E.g. moving a newly downloaded movie to "Videos" and an ISO-file to "Files".

I feel as if i have used a client with this functionality before but can't remember the name.

Since I at the moment use Transmission as my bittorrent client a script would also work since Transmission can run it after finishing the download.

Fedora Servers :: Sshd Within Xinetd Doesn't Work

Aug 21, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 13 on VMware 7 environment without X window. sshd did work fine, but when I tried to put it into xinetd, it doesn't work any more. Here is what I have done so far :

I stopped sshd. #service sshd stop

and I configured xinetd.conf like below.


# This is the master xinetd configuration file. Settings in the
# default section will be inherited by all service configurations
# unless explicitly overridden in the service configuration. See
# xinetd.conf in the man pages for a more detailed explanation of
# these attributes.


I don't know what I did wrong with them. I configured xinetd.conf, and I made service configuration file 'ssh' in /etc/xinetd.d, and I restarted xinetd.

What am I supposed to do to make a life on my sshd within xinetd ?

Security :: Setup A Kerberos + OpenLDAP Server To Manage Users For Our Samba Shares

Feb 13, 2011

Trying to setup a Kerberos + OpenLDAP server to manage users for our Samba shares (was going to use just OpenLDAP, but apparently it is less secure than using Kerberos with it). (Distro: CentOS 5.5) Haven't even gotten to the point of connecting either to Samba yet. I have set up a Kerberos server, and configured it as necessary. I am happy that it is working as intended, as I can login and manage principals from both the local terminal and remotely on other clients.

I have setup a server (sv1.myhost.net), and configured it to talk to Kerberos (auth.myhost.net). I have created both a [URL] principal, and a testuser principal. I have set the password on the testuser but not on the host/sv1.myhost.net. I have added the keys for both users to the keytab file on the sv1.myhost.net. I am at a Windows 7 machine (on the same internal network), and have installed the Network Identity Manager. It is able to request a ticket successfully for the testuser account.

When I use putty w/GSSAPI (0.58) to remote login to the system, it says using 'testuser' and then just hangs there. Eventually putty connection times out. The fact that both machines can connect to the auth server to communicate with kerberos correctly suggests firewalls are correct. The relevant entries in sshd_config have been uncommented to tell srv1 to use Kerberos authentication.

Ubuntu Servers :: Add Windows & Mac Users As Samba Users?

CentOS 5 :: VHOSTS Not Resolving To The Correct Folder Location

Mar 30, 2009

having a bit of trouble getting domains to resolve to their own folder properly on my new server.

this is a plesk/centos server that is pretty much out of the box.

Problem I have is that all the domain names I add to Plesk, are all pulling files from /var/www/html . All 5 domains Ive added each got their own /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/* folders created ...

Is there something I am missing in order to have the server grab files from each domains respective folder?

What I noticed was that if I edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and add the virtualhost lines to it, then the one domain name resolves properly.

i replaced my domain with 'mydomain.com'

<VirtualHost *>
ServerAdmin youremail@yoursite.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpdocs/
ServerAlias mydomain.com *.mydomain.com
