fresh install of ubuntu karmic server. fresh, vanilla install of openssh-server attempt to connect either via standard ssh, linux client or puTTY win32 client system (both on local LAN)
First connect is great. connection established.
Second connection (via multiple clients) screams that: "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" and since I have strict checking, won't let me continue.
So, i do a little
To flush it out (i have backups,).
Then i try again:
I get the typical "Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?" and i say yes. at which point, i offer the password for the username in question and it flat out refuses: "Permission denied, please try again."
Ok, so i have even gone as far as do a complete rip and replace of the ssh server and it's config files, however this continues to loop and repeat.
So, question one: Why does my key change?
Question two: Why am i getting "permission denied" errors on subsequent connect.
I'm currently running Karmic on a old Dell Pentium 4, and I am having trouble copying files to this box from my laptop which is running Linux Mint Helena. I am able to see and connect to the shared directory on the Dell, copy and execute files from there, but cannot write to it. The permissions have been set to 777 on the shared directory and sub directories within that. The older Dell has a PATA hard disk, 300gb, while my newer laptop has a SATA hard disk. I've read that this can be a problem, and permissions may not be recognized? I'm not able to connect to the laptop from the Dell, neither of the administrator logins work, though I maybe need to do this as root?
Here is the smb.conf file I am running on both machines:
I want to be able to write to my server, not just read and execute. I am also not able to write to the server when logged on to a windows machine on the same network.
Just had a new VPS installed running Ubuntu Server 8.04 Getting some errors when I connect to the server and try to use apt.. only trying to install nano and after messing around I've managed to get the error to change.. but still can't get any further.

I want to use SSH to connect to my desktop. I have used Ubuntu 10.10's encryption to encrypt my home folder (thus encrypting my .ssh folder). This means that the OpenSSH doesn't have access to my .ssh folder. When I try to log into SSH before logging in on the local machine I get the following error:
If I log onto the machine, then use SSH it works fine. I want to use key based login, One way to get around this error would be use a different authorized_keys file, but I don't know of a way to do this. This is the contents of my sshd_config file:
# Package generated configuration file # See the sshd_config(5) manpage for details # What ports, IPs and protocols we listen for
I am using Ubuntu server edition 10.04.1 running in Vmware server 2.02.I am connect via Putty so I can use copy and paste.My first goal is configuring a ftp server using PureFtpd using this guide.In section 10 I need to write this command
I have created a basic ssh server and i haven't done any configuring to it other than to port forward port 22. i am trying to connect to it from a client computer (they are on the same router). i enter the command "SSH <IP of the server>", and it asks me for the password. i have tried "SSH <my user name>@<IP of client>", but it says permission denied.
I wanted to setup a local Apache2 server for some programming and testing. I installed and got Apache2 working with PHP, MySQL and all works fine. Now I wanted to add an additional directory to somewhere in my /home. And that's where things went wrong. I went to edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default. This is it:
Code: You don't have permission to access /po/ on this server. So I go to the logfile; which says this: Code: [Sat May 08 16:43:51 2010] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (13)Permission denied: access to /po/ denied
I tried a lot of stuff using chmod and chown, but all to no avail. I tried to change the ownership of the /home/name/web to root, and to www-data, I changed file permissions to allow executing the files.
After upgrading ubuntu server to the latest version (according to apt-get) proftpd stopped working. When I try to execute proftpd I get the following message (when logged in as root or user with root privileges) :
Line 18 in modules.conf looks like this:
I've tried removing and re-installing proftpd, but this doesn't help
If I comment line 18 in modules.conf, I just get permission denied on the next LoadModule command...
Can I remove all modules? or is there a way of fixing the permission denied issue?
I am attempting to setup an Ubuntu server as a secondary DNS server. It seems whenever it tries to dump the master file the system log shows Permission denied.let me know if more information is needed.NOTE: where it says example.com I have simply removed my actual Domain name.

I was setting up a Postfix email server, and I was following a basic tutorial here. I successfully installed all the required packaged, and then set up a Virtual user for the mailbox, and Set up a new user with this.
The user "abimail" has a mailbox specified in /home/abimail/.spop3d which is /var/mail/abimail. The permissions of /var/mail/abimail are:
Code: rwxrwx--- 1 abimail mailgroup 192113 2010-01-28 20:24 /var/mail/abimail. When logging in to solid-pop3d as user abimail and attempting to fetch mails, the login works but it will pop up the error "can't open mailbox file"; syslog entries: Code: Jan 31 17:38:10 h1347290 solid-pop3d: user abimail authenticated - 22.214.171.124 Jan 31 17:38:10 h1347290 solid-pop3d: mailbox: can't open mailbox file: /var/mail/abimail Jan 31 17:38:10 h1347290 solid-pop3d: mailbox: open: Permission denied

I have just installed 9.10 netbook remix onto my Eeepc 901. I was previously using 9.4 Rather than clicking on shutdown icons, or going through shutdown menus, I added a keyboard shortcut to run a shell script containing the following code:
Code: #!/bin/bash init 0 because init needs to be run as root to have the correct permissions, I set the owner and group to be root , ran chmod 711, then chmod u+s to prevent anyone altering the script, and to allow anyone to execute it with root privelidges Since updateing to 9.10 netbook remix, I have been unable to get this to work. have applied the above changes but get a "/bin/bash: /usr/bin/shutdownscript: permission denied" error when I try to run my shutdown script from the terminal (nothing happens when I press the key combination asigned to the keyboard shortcut). If I run the shutdown script with sudo then it neatly shuts down. ls reveals the following permissions:-rws--s--x 1 root root
So it appears as if SUID and SGID are both set, and the owner/group are correct, and the script works, and yet it doesn't have the permissions to work. I installed 9.4 long ago enough that I can't remember if I had to do anything else to get it working, or has something changed between 9.4 and 9.10?
I tried to execute the following command: $ ./eval_online_wiki.ml -db_user aa -db_pass bb -db_name cc It returned as follows: bash: ./eval_online_wiki.ml: Permission denied What does this mean? How to solve the problem? Actually, I was following a README, and it says "$ ./eval_online_wiki -db_user <username> -db_pass <pwd> -db_name <db_name>"
Forum.Ref:Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid LynxFluxboxOpera 10.61Has anyone a clue how I can solve following (minor but annoying) problem?It takes a relative long time (a few seconds) as normal user before Opera starts in my fluxbox environment. I expected a quicker startup time.Also because when I start opera as root the startup time is shorter.I started opera in a terminal. No messages when started as root with gksudoBut 5 lines of:open: Permission deniedwhen started as normal user. Startup succeeds after these messages.So I figured out that there is some kind of authorisation problem but have no clue how to find out which files opera tries to open and fails and what to do at this point.I searched for similar problems on this forum and also via google but could not find any real answers.
Currently I am having troubles getting my ssh key to work correctly. I have had a desktop crash which has been reformatted to use ubuntu. The key residing in id_rsa.pub has been copied over to the ssh server into the authorized keys of the given user. however When we try to login we get a "permission denied (public key, keyboard-interactive)" error. below is the debug option:
jv@ops-desktop:~/.ssh$ ssh -v email@example.com OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu4, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: Applying options for *
I have a shared directory on another machine but I can't get it to mount. The permission denied doesn't say where/which permission is denied. Is it on the remote on on the local machine? The remote has sharing enabled for the shareddocs directory and after I have mkdir'ed the local mount point I open it's permissions too.
The verbose response from mount.cfis looks like this:

Im running Ubuntu 10.10 on my hp mini 110 netbook, have been for since i upgraded from 10.04. The problem Im having all of a sudden is when I try and copy anything from internal file system, to anything external [phone, card reader, usb hardrive] I get a pop up that says Error opening file '/media/disk/<filename>': Permission denied
Should be a quick fix i would think, what you guys got ???
I've done a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.04 and tried to create a folder using the File Brower went to my user account and proceeded to create a directory. Then when trying to cp a file to this new directory I get permission denied. I checked the directory permissions and discovered that its owner was root not the user that I was signed in as.
So I had no choice but to enable the root account so I could copy the file I wanted. Why could I not have copied the file using the user that I was signed/logged int as without resorting to changing users to root. I hope that its not a bug of some kind or maybe I did something weird during the install. I would like to disable the root account again.
I have a user (let's call him John) who is not able to list contents of several 777 directories even though it appears he has permission to.
Case in point, as root:
If I use ls -a or strictly ls as john, I can list the contents of the nss directory:
That says to me that I have an issue listing permissions. Fine, I don't really need john to be able to list permissions. I want him to have rwx access to /media/nss/ENG which as you can see from my listing as root shouldn't be a problem since the perms on that dir are 777.
I am able to CD into the ENG directory or any other directory or subdirectory in /media/nss that has equivalent 777 perms, but once in the directories I can't list the contents:
I can get anywhere and do anything I want under the media/nss folder as john, except listing files. I even tried using an ACL i.e.
I am trying to give an SSH user on my server permission to compile C exploit with gcc, and I have had no luck. Every time i try to run gcc i get: "sh: /usr/bin/gcc: Permission denied. Has anyone else had this problem with this ?
