I've been using NX to login to a remote machine (using the free NoMachine NX client). I've been pretty happy with it, but I'd like the ability to run it as a separate desktop, rather than a window within my existing local desktop. I think I'd like to be able to start X Windows with only the NX client running, either in another virtual console (VC) in addition to my local desktop or perhaps sometimes as the only desktop running. My first thought was to go to another VC and start an empty X Server with only the NX client running with the command
xinit /path/to/nxclient -- :1
That seemed to work, except that just as the remote desktop is about to appear the X server shuts down. It seems that the nxclient process spawns the child nxssh and then exits, and at that point X Windows closes because the command it was started with has ended. I assume there's a simple way to fix this by writing a script that will only terminate once all the child processes have terminated and calling that on the xinit command line, but I'm not sure how to do that.
I am building a Terminal Server Client using debootstrap for work. I found a couple post that suggested that I can change my inittab configuration to not load login. However it is my understanding that inittab has been replaced by upstart. I would like to know how to modify upstart so that instead of the user seeing a login: prompt my script is automatically loaded (rrdesktop)(revisedrdesktop) and the user is brought off a live cd to my terminal server.
i installed unix services for windows 3.5 on a windows xp pro box and it installed fine. I configured nfs on the debian box and exported the ip of the client computer and forwarded port 2049 correctly. I followed the instructions for setting up teh nfs client on windows. However whenever i go to tools->map network drive and type in the server-domain-name:/file-address it says it cannot connect?
My office is on migrating to UNIX system. I am configuring Centos as our server including some program will be running on it. But one of the problem is we use foxpro for operating some program on server directly. I can run that program on Centos using DOSBox. My question is how can i run that program on winxp client that connected to network through samba to that program on server? so my plan is just give the shortcut and link it to server. I have tried to open it but not work.
I sshed to a server a week ago, then ran *screen* and created a few windows in my screen session. I then ran a few programs on those screens. All the programs were running in the background (I run them with &). I did not close or detach from the screen sessions. So I was still connected to those screen sessions from my client machine.
Then, this morning I find my client machine rebooted. When I do screen -ls I find there are no screens available to reattach to. But that is not the worst part. The strange thing is that all my processes (which were running on the server) have disappeared as well, even though they were running in the background. I thought 1) using screen I will be able to re-attach to old screens when my client restarts, 2) If I have sshed to a server and have run programs in the background, restarting the client should not stop those programs (even if I had not used screen).
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 configured openLdap in RHEL5 on virtual achines,everything is working fine, I created a user called ldapuser,in LDAP server and i created a home directory for ldapuser in my LDAP client, now i can able to login to the both Server and client with ldapuser account....
Now here what am expecting is i want to export my server's home directory to the client, i dont want to create home directories manually in the client machine, i googled about that, and it can be done through autofs.....
what need to be done on the client and server side.
i got ubuntu aabout a month ago and ive been trying to play games but none of them work for me then i remebered about rsps and used the ubuntu forum to get help with the 508 servers. (which work for me new if u need help i think i can help or post a lonk on how to get the 508 server working on ubuntu) but now i wanna try 317 servers the client loads which isnt my problem but then when i get in game there are invisible people (i see them on minimap) and when i do 1 move the client crashes. here is the error it get.hs_err_pid2288.log

I have a Nis server on Suse 11 which is configured using Yast and nis clients on Suse and CentOs .All clients which is on the Suse Os is working fine. But on CentOs , users couldn't login using nis username.I have mounted home directory using nfs in fstab . I can switch to nis users homedirectory only when i am root. But nis users could'nt login on reboot.' ypcat passwd username ' is showing the output . No selinux is enabled in the client .Is there is any problem with Suse server to Centos Client in nis ??
I currently use Deluge for torrents, and I have many torrents which I would like to keep seeding 24/7 on my desktop computer. This machine is on 24/7, and has many users, both locally (using the standard Ubuntu GUI on a monitor, keyboard, and mouse hooked to the actual machine) and remotely (via ssh). My point is that this is a multiuser system. I am the administrator/have root access.
Anyway, the point is, I would like to run a BitTorrent client on this system without having to have any user logged in just to sustain it. Currently, the only way I know of keeping BitTorrent active at all times is to log in locally via the GUI, turn on Deluge, and then hit "lock screen," protecting my session and allowing others to log in locally as well while I'm gone (via "Switch User"). It is a big drain on system resources to have me logged in all the time (especially with a GUI).
I think I have explained the problem...Is there a solution? I use Deluge and like it, so I'd like to stick with it, but if there is a better option for this purpose, I am willing to switch.
I have a virtual private server running ubuntu server edition that I have set up as an openvpn client. The problem I have is that the moment I turn on openvpn, I am no longer able to ssh into the machine. Is there a way to enable me to connect to it even when it is tunneling?

We would like to use Kiwi LTSP to boot some old PCs straight in to a Windows terminal session. We have this working with RDesktop, but we would like to load balance the connections to our Citrix servers, which I don't believe you can do with RDesktop as it points to a single Windows server.
Is there a way to get LTSP to connect to published ICA applications on boot in a similar way to specifying screen07=rdesktop in lts.conf?
i'm having a little issue with a small script i'm working on. It's a bash script that, amongst other things, checks the current playing song in Rhythmbox with "rhythmbox-client --print-playing". Now the thing is that if I run the script by hand it works perfectly, but when it's run by cron this part gives the following error:
Code: (rhythmbox-client:9848): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: /bin/dbus-launch terminated abnormally with the following error: Autolaunch error: X11 initialization failed.It's running on my own cron (crontab -e) set to my user.
Is there any way I can get the iPrint client running on fedora x86_64? I'm not interested in getting browser support (doesn't work anyway with version 4.38 - the only one my organization supports) I just want to be able to add a printer from the printer configuration dialogue.
Has anyone had any luck? The .rpm is for SuSE. It can't find the necessary dependencies of course. Is there any other way? Even if I force install the .rpm for SuSE, I dont' get any additional configuration for iprint in system-config-printer.
Running Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.04 over LAN; I can SSH -X into my server just fine, and am able to launch various applications (Nautilus, Gnome-Terminal, Disk Utility, etc) but I'd really like a Gnome desktop. When I've tried the various StartX commands and gnome-session, but something just isn't clicking. Is there a way to have a 'second' Gnome session running on the client over the first?
To pre-empt some obvious solutions; I don't wish to use VNC, the lag drives me nuts, and I'd like to keep my gnome session running on the client machine if possible. If it's not possible, that's fine; it just seems like there'd be a way to do it?
I love Ubuntu and last night I wiped crappy windows 7 off my laptop and installed and customised a beautiful Ubuntu 9 OS ( I tried the new 10.04 first but it had some issues for me ). Now, up here at work we got a Domain Controller that is running windows server 2008, I need to be able to RDP into it and mess with it, I tried to use the Terminal Server Client that comes with Ubuntu, and I can see the login screen just fine, but when I try to log in it says incorrect password and wont go through.
Just to make sure it was not my account that was the issue, I went to my boss and used his computer (a MAC running OSX) and I was able to get into the same server with the same credentials, so it has something to do with my computer not my account. Do any of you have any ideas on what the problem could be?
I have a small home-office network. On that network I have two linux computers, one is a client the other a server.
On the server I have NFS Server setup and mount some NFS exports on the client computer.
On the server I have the firewall on and here it becomes a little tricky.
Since both the server and the client connect to the router the interface (eth1) is theoretically both an internal & external zone.
The router is commercial grade and therefore has a good firewall on it which is also setup. Therefore the firewall on the server is really more of a backup than a necessity. But that's fine, and by having the server's firewall on 'fail2ban' is able to work which I like to have working so I don't want to just turn off the server firewall even though I have good security from the router.
However, when I turn on the server's firewall, the client computer cannot see the NFS server when scanning for server -- done by: clicking on "Choose" next to "NFS Server Hostname" when adding an NFS share in the NFS Client in YaST. Clearly something is being blocked even though I have both "NFS Client" and "NFS Server Service" allowed in the server firewall. The Firewall config. files for these are below.
The Firewall configuration is pretty much "out of the box". That is I have the services I need opened up for the external zone, the other zones are left at their default which means the internal zone, although not used (i.e.: attached to any interface), is completely open.
The perfect solution I guess would be to setup my client computer to connect through a different NIC (perhaps eth0), make that the "Internal Zone" and therefore allow all traffic through to it while still blocking the server from the external zone. However, I cannot make that physical change to my network for now so I am looking for an in between (non-perfect) solution.
In this case I am guessing that means opening up extra NFS ports to the external zone so I have full NFS functionality. I don't mind this because like I said, the router firewall is the main line of defense anyway.
So, given all of the above could someone tell me what I would need to additionally open up in the server firewall to make the NFS server detection work on the client while the firewall was on. Or, if you have a cleverer/better solution without me changing my physical network that would be great.
Hopefully I have written this in enough detail and clearly enough so that all the parameters are clear but if not, feel free to ask me what you like and I'll try to make it clear.

My desktop is running 'buntu 9.10 and I have recently aquired a couple of half decent servers running Windows server 2003. I have a few windows app's that I use regularly for work that I have had limited success in running with wine or in vm's. I stumbled upon a how to to call apps in a vm to run seamlessly on the host desktop and did some playing and have succeeded in calling app's on my servers from my 'buntu desktop, the command I have set in my launcher for one of them (DIALux)
My question is, can I change the default application/file association in 'buntu with a custom command so I can double click on a file and have it open in one of these remote app's??If I can, what is the correct custom command to be using as using the above doesn't work at all, it just tries to open the file with rdesktop not the remote app.
I have a CentOS + Samba server and Windows XP client machines. Users, passwords and permissions are entered on the server machine.users and passwords ( same as on the server ) are entered in the XP client machine.When attempting to access a public file on the server using a XP client machine and the IP address of my server, I am asked a user name and password and none of the already entered seem to work. I cannot access the server file (prompted again and again to enter user name and password). What did i miss
I'm trying hard to run an openvpn server on a openvz VPS, the problem is packets sent from openvpn server process, doesnt reach the client, so connection is never stablished (I run tcpdump on server and wireshark on client to carefully investigate whats wrong), the first guess is that a kind of firewall is blocking traffic (I tried connecting to server through different ISP's but it's possible the national network provider applied some filtering but it cant be on IP,src port or dst port as I'd tried different configuration.
what about deep packet inspection technics, is it possible to block my traffic?) but at exactly the same time I can transmit UDP packets using netcat from server to the guest. there is no firewall enabled in between, I had tried, tcp and udp, tried both open vpn and openvpnAS and tried any thing one can imagine! the VPN is configured as a routed (TUN) type on debian
I can only access the Transmission web interface while the Transmission-gtk client is running. When I close it, the web interface is no longer available. I try to manually start the transmission-daemon, but the process never shows up as running.
I have 2 ethernet cards but when I look at the Network configuration in "Hardware Tab" I have another acx wireless network. How to delete that because In my system Idon't have wireless card..probably installed before but want delete it now.
then windows can ping server and resolve ip address and browsing Internet but can't ping [URL]... result is Request time out. ICMP already enabled in iptables.
i tried to connecting from a windows7 client to a linux server through vnc server.But its very slow , is there any alternative for vnc . i heard that samba can be used as a remote desktop tool if its true please reply with configuration details.
I actually have a server and a client.The client must connect to the server (via internet) to access to external websites. (You can see the attachment, maybe it's more clear )My actual problem is, I have configure Squid on my server, but I want to force SSL for the connection between the client and the server.I didn't really find nice tutorials about on that, maybe someone have an idea ? Or maybe some indications ?
