I work for a church, with office staff of about 10 people.
We want to set-up a server to store all the office information, (which is now scattered all over the place).
The idea is to give individuals a partition on the server(password protected). There is database software that needs to be accessed by 5 people( it runs on MS Access). Most of the document are MS Word. Of course you can tell me of a better way to do this than my idea.
how to set-up this network. I have to submit my info to church leadership. it will save us buy Window Server and 10 CAL (that ZAR 10k).
I have a network consisting mostly of Windows Vista and 7 clients and an Ubuntu server. The server provides both the DHCP and NTP services through dhcp3-server and openntpd. In my dhcpd.conf, the subnet is declared as follows:
The clients don't seem to be using the NTP server though. When I capture the network traffic with Wireshark during the DHCP process, I also see no mention of the NTP option in the DHCP offer message. I am not quite sure if the clients would have to specifically request that option to receive it or if I have to make another configuration to offer the option.
in my office we are using redhat server and 20 windows client machine. some times while viewing the server stored files or not able to view.yesterday i saw a problem all the files are showing but not able to open a single fine after restarting the computer iam able to open the file.
I have setup openldap and samba for authenticating Windows and Linux clients on my server. They are working fine. Windows users are getting authenticated through server as Primary Domain Controller and Linux clients directly from Openldap directory. But I have little problem that is I want to mount home folders created on server to be available on clients so clients get a centralized storage with some quota on both Linux and Windows clients. Can you help me please how can I do that.
I would like to install Linux based AntiVirus Server with Windows Clients. As per the existing setup, all Windows machines are using "demo" or "evaluation" copy of antivirus & all antivirus softwares are not same on all windows computers.
Someone is using Trend-Micro ,other is using Avast. Due to above listed problem,i want to implement Linux Based Free AntiVirus Server,which will be connected directly on the internet. The Linux AntiVirus server will updated it's database from Internet automatically.
Inside the Linux Server,all Windows PC's are connected in a same Local Area Connection. All windows XP computers will fetch the updated data from the Anti Virus Server. Also,i am searching MAIL RESPONDER OR POP UP Windows,when any virus found on any client machine. My company needs Cost Effective solution & Linux is the best solution for this.
I want to replace Windows AD with SAMBA I want to know what policies restrictions I can get in SAMBA as compared to windows AD - whether it is possible to restrict clients not to change IP, access cdrom or control panel.
I'm trying to give some windows users a permanent connection to a samba share behind a firewall over the public Internet. I know I can give them access with something like winscp (which they have done) but really I'd like to do it with a VPN so it seems seamless to the user. However I have no idea how to set up the server to support this and am finding the documentation a bit confusing. The samba share is on a Debian box and the firwewall is a Linksys WRT54GL.
I administrat a school in Denmark, with around 40 clients runnig xp pro and a windows 2003 server, but i read about the possibility of running a linux server, with thin clintes that can run from the server, if it has network pxe boot.
I was wondering if anybody now any links to a good how to page, on what is needed on the setup side of the server, and clients. To make it work. And i have to use my dhcp from the win 2003 server. Is that possible.
I have 17 system (sys1,sys2,sys3.....sys17) in my office, and i am willing to setup a dedicated system to act as a firewall for that i have selected sys1 with two NIC(eth0 for local network and eth1 for internet) and i have configured to access internet in my office for that i have opened a wellknown port 80.but my clients are not accessing the internet..
and please check my sample IP configuration !!!
interface : eth1 (ISP IP)just for example IP :192.168.0.2 gateway:192.168.0.1 dns:18.104.22.168 dns:22.214.171.124
Interface : eth0 (my local lan )
IP address of xp clients ranges form 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.16 with default 255.255.255.0
my question is that which gateway address and dns i have to give to my clients for accessing internet ?...
I've got a home server running Ubuntu Server 9.04 and several machines running Ubuntu Desktop (9.04 and 8.04) and Windows (XP, Vista and 7). Now what I want to do is to create a domain and directory server similar in function to Windows Server w/ AD and join my other machines to the domain, but am not sure where to start. I already have file shares with Samba but now I want to setup a domain.
I have one Windows-XP on Machin 1 and one Linux on Machine 2. I want make Linux machine as CVS server and Windows Xp as CVS client. How to setup CVS Server in Fedora-11 machine and CVS client in Windows Xp?
my both linux and windows has 2 network cards each.
basicaly it is vLan cards, each server has 2 network cards. one to main switch and one to local IP.
data will be going like below:
internet ----------------> eth0 --> linux --> eth1 ----------------> Windows.
i have vLans on both servers. And i need cross connection setup. And use linux in bridg mode / cross connection .
actualy i want to use Iptable rules to filter bad packets and forward good packets to windows. i have scripts how to forward packets to windows. but the problem is i dont know how to setup both servers in this topology. and how to make linux as bridge.
All it should be in transparent mode. Not in NAT mode.
I have Ubuntu 10.4 (lucid) and I want to be able to access computers on my home network (all of which are either on XP and Windows 7) If I go into: Places --> Network All I see is one folder named "Windows Networks" and if I go into that folder I see that there is nothing there! I know you can see windows computers in the "Network" folder because my friend can (Also with Ubuntu lucid) but he said he didnt have to do any configuring to enable this feature?
we are having new printers. At the moment we over 1000 machines on multiple sites but no print server they are manually added on the machine ( I know don't ask).
Anyway there is no way they would let use a windows server so the only option I have is to use linux however I little unsure if it is capable of doing the job I need it to do. Basically I want to add the printers on the linux server either using samba or ipp (I would assume samba would be best).
The reason i want to do this is when we have to do around the machines I just want to go around the machines and just the map the printer and it brings down the driver and config etc as we want them to duplex. The issue is I been trying to gain information on the internet and getting conflicting information apparently I can add the windows driver onto the server so when I map the printer it brings it down. However some guides state you still have through the whole process of adding the printer and then choosing the driver etc. Which kinda of makes it pointless to do the printer server since I would already have to do this anyway if we don't have one.
I just want to go be able to go around the machines and for example click star run and do something like \192.168.1.1printer01 and then it done kind of thing.
I would like to use an extra physical hard drive in my linux server to provide my wife a place to backup her Windows XP desktop.I am willing to format this drive as NTFS (or anything else) and have it dedicated to this purpose. I am wondering what is the easiest way to proceed?
I am trying to set up samba in my CentOS virtual machine that is running on a Windows 7 host. I have found a tutorial in the How-Tos on this site but I'm not sure if they are exact and I'm paranoid about messing something up. The link to the tutorial is below. Is there anything that I should do different or anything that I should be aware of? Also, once this is set up, how do I transfer files between the two machines?
i want to configure an Open LDAP server in Ubuntu....and also want it to connect to its clients, i have two machines for testing,one for client & one for server, i followed the tutorials on ubuntu documentation,but did not succeed in making either the client or the server,
