Ubuntu Servers :: Make An Xubuntu Based File Server?
Mar 29, 2011
i need to make an file server.but I'm not gonna ask how because that's a piece of pie.The thing is i need to make an ubuntu/xubuntu based file server.For windows users.But not just a regular file server. A File Server with accounts. That when you try to access the file server in explorer you need to provide a username and password.And that you( as the administrator) manage the privileges for the server/folder/file. so with different permissions.
I was wondering if it would be secure to add xubuntu-desktop to my server and then open RDP so my colleuges can jump in and out as they need to. Would it bring any major security risks to my server to do this?I have heard there are ways to put a chroot around an RDP session, so it is like logging into a virtual machine, how would I go about that?
Know any documentation or software packages to do a open source "File Hosting" or also known as "one-click hosting" server.I want to create my own private secure site to easily have clients download sensitive files. If it could be setup to use SSL that would be great.
I have setup a home based web server to host a photo blog for myself and my friends. I will be running wordpress and possibly a phpbb3 forum. I'd like to open this to discuss server administration, server setup, and server maintenance. However, I have a pretty good start on all of those but serving a domain name to my static ip. Here my static ip is 18.104.22.168. I registered a domain through [URL]... It appears that I have the domain working to forward to my ip. However, I am still getting this output file from apache.
I have tested the domain name across a few different computers on different ips. It works appropriately. I just want to make sure I have it set correctly on the (apache) server side of things. Then I can get more into Zone Editing etc.
I am thinking about writing a script to search through specific folders on a Linux based server (Centos 5) and report any changes made to any file on that server.Like a detailed change log with the date it was changed and the difference in size. Dose anyone know if such a script exist?
I'm looking for a write one, read many file synchronization, file system or similar technique. In fact I want a to imitate a zfs_send/zfs_receive similar behaviour on Linux. My requirements are pure local (or in terms of distributed file systems: rack-aware) file handling with remote synchronization. Some random features/requirements I want to achieve are (I use the terms file and "file system" here interchangeable, as I don't care wheter I have to synchronize file based or use full file system supporting that): Access on files from a specific host is pure local, i.e. the node has a full copy of a file, no parts are distributed. Read and write access is local, the remote side gets synchronized with write changes only Write changes on the remote side are non-blocking and asynchronous No need for concurrent file access, concurrent, distributed locking and so on Every file is changed by a single node only, other nodes have read access The file "owner", thus the node allowed to write files must be changeable Similar techniques (some as technology concept, not usable for me) exist, among those DRBD, MySQL Replication or even pure rsync.
I don't care whether I'm referring to a pure local solution (i.e. between two block devices) or a client/server mode. DRBD won't fit because its a peer to peer solution, I need to synchronize a lot of clients with a central storage through that way where DRBD just mirrors from peer to peer among two nodes and doesn't allow another node to take over the role of the primary node (i.e. node A is master, storage B secondary, I want to change to a thrid node C which becomes master and receives hence a full update from storage B.
Just as a guess, I'd make a local LVM volume on every node where write access happens. In the same time there exists a iSCSI target with multipath to a remote hosts which is shared with every node, again providing a clustered LVM. So I'd need to synchronize a local LVM volume with a remote LVM image. The question is just by which technique I could achieve that (i.e. as RAID 0, where every read and write goes to one node only and doesn't wait the other node to succeed). I could achieve this with rsync by a cyclic push to the remote host, but the problem is, that rsync isn't block based thus I'd need to synchronize every time the whole file, not only changes.
Im trying to install a trading program fx trading station II on a dedicated virtual server that's linux based at media temple. Any ideas on how to run the program so that the exe file isn't prompting to download the file instead of prompting the user to login and trade?
If any of you have successfully created a video hosting server with Fedora, can you give me any ideas of what software to get and how to configure it and so on? Or, if you have been unsuccessful, can you tell me what doen't work?
Does anyone have a clue as to how to make the top and bottom panels transparent in 10.4 xubuntu? There are no options in the settings menus to set this - none that work ffor me anyhoo. And 'right clicking' on the panels does not give this option. Maybe a command line, er, command?c
I'm hosting my own dedicated server with Ubuntu Server 10.10. I have it set up with a static local IP, and I've configured DynDNS to link up with my router and allow my server to go live to the internet. I have all the appropriate ports unlocked, with the exception of port 80. This port is blocked by my ISP (Charter) and I can't use it. Due to this, I configured my router to listen on port 81, and direct it to my server.
So, In order to view it, you need to go to the IP XXX.xxx.XXX.xxx:81 Today, I registered (www.online-self.com) in hopes of getting around my current mask (provided by DynDNS.com (omegame.selfip.com). So here is my dilemma, When I go to the host of my domain name , I want to redirect my DNS to my server IP.
I can't seem to do it though? They want a strict IP address, no port extensions. How do I get around this so that my domain name and IP address link up? I'm thinking I may be missing a step, or maybe I needed to register a domain name that simply redirects? I'm starting to get confused on what I should do next. Can I even do this?
For the last couple of days I've been building on a server built from an old (well, not too old) computer. My goal is to use it for multiple purposes like a webserver, home automation, and possibly a future media center (if I get my TV card to work). But perhaps the main reason is to get wireless access to the internet for my laptop, and to connect it to my other (stationary) computer. When I'm done I'm also planning on writing a guide for setting up an access point with the rt61 chipset, as there seems to be many people looking for this. First I just need to get through this problem though .
For this I use two wired NICs, eth0 for the local interface to my computer, and eth1 as an external interface for the internet. Moreover I use a wireless NIC (DWL-G510 using the rt61pci driver) in conjunction with the daemon hostapd to provide a wireless interface for portable computers to connect to. eth1 gets its IP through DHCP from my ISP, while eth0 and wlan0 have static IPs on two different subnets like this (copied from /etc/network/interfaces):
(I have tried a bunch of other ips too and none outside its network are pingable) I'm not sure if this is a problem with my server or a problem with the networking outside the server. I have been emailing my server provider and they keep on insisting the problem is with the server and that their network is working fine. Apparently all of their other servers work and they can login into the gateway and ping 22.214.171.124 from there. So they just want to reinstall the OS, but I thought I'd post here to see if anyone has any ideas.
Here is some info I have gained while troubleshooting: I haven't changed any settings at all on the server for months. I haven't done any updates for about a week. The strangest thing is that this is intermittent, there have been a few times in the last 24 hours where I have been able to ping 126.96.36.199 or other ips, but 98% of the time I can't. I have also tried rebooting the server, which had no effect. I can ping the gateway, and I can ping other servers on the same subnet. I can ssh onto the server from my home internet connection, and I can view webpages on apache, so incoming connections work.
I just recently made a server using Fedora 10 and i was wondering if it is possible to set it up so that i don't need a GPU for fedora to boot properly. Since the GPU isn't being used i was hoping to save on a little bit more electricity.
I am trying to make start an iptables.cf script on my server.
I have copied it into /etc/init.d/ And try to make it load with /etc/init.d/iptables.cf start Then "not permission" (I was the root then). So, sudo /etc/init.d/iptables.cf start Then, "command not found".
I wanted to know how can I cross compile SMS SERVER TOOL for an embedded computer and make just one binary file for it or how can I change all of its default files places like its demon and object file and gather all of them to one directory to execute and use and run.let me explain it better for you : I have an embedded computer with Linux OS that its file system is read only and I can not add any file to /usr /lib and ..... and I can just mount a SD memory card to it and copy all of my programs to it and run them from there as you understand I have two choices to choose, first make one big binary file for each program that I am doing it now and it is not a suitable solution and the second is finding the way to change default place of shared object file of my program.now you tell me what can I do to solving this problem.
I'm planning to add 1tb sata disk to my lovely file-server under ubuntu 10.10,what i want is use this disk as additional storage for network user,indows and ubuntu?I mean when my ubuntu server down (worse case) I can easily take out the disk from ubuntu machine and plug in on windows machine
is possible to edited the default RHEL CD to have it automatically install RHEL based off of a kickstart file that I will store locally on the CD. My plan would be to put a cd in a server and have the OS automatically being installed.
I started to collect the bits for putting together a file server, originally i was going to go for a windows OS since i was familiar but the i thought i may as well play around a bit with ubuntu server.So i grabbed the 9.10 server ISO, install it onto my 4GB CF card i have plugged into the IDE port via a converter.Seems to install fine and i got samba up and running and so far thats about all.I want to get some kind of DC++ client working on it as well, im not sure if i need some kind of GUI for it...
I am using xubuntu and there are a few types of files on website that instead of downloading and saving and then opening with emacs, I would rather when the radio button choice comes up say open with emacs. I am using xubuntu with xfce, and there is no line for a command to be entered as some ubuntu editions have. In the choice of changing the opening program from mousepad to something else, it says search and allows to navigate to find a program, but I cant find emacs anywhere not in etc/ or elsewhere. So where is its executable to direct the program chooser to?
