I just created a 2nd user on my computer. I've got the hard drive that ubuntu runs on, and then a 2tb drive for media. If the 2tb is mounted on my desktop, it won't show up on his desktop even if I'm logged out. It won't show up on his unless I unmount on mine.
If I'm logged out I'm obviously not using it. So why doesn't it show up? He has all privileges. Is there a way to make this work without having to unmount?
I'm running karmic btw. If you need computer info let me know what to type into the terminal and whatnot and I'll paste it all here!
There is a folder that is owned by user tomcat6: drwxr-xr-x 2 tomcat6 tomcat6 69632 2011-05-06 03:43 document. I want to allow another user (ruser) write permissions on document folder. The two users (tomcat6 and ruser) does not belong to same group. I have tried using setfacl: sudo setfacl -m u:ruser:rwx document
but this gives me setfacl: document: Operation not supported error.
The desktop computer of my two children has a total of three users:
1) The superuser (me) 2) The user 1001 (my elder son) 3) The user 1002 (my younger son)
Both users 1001 and 1002 can not access their files system, and also they can not save any attachments from incoming mails.
What I tried so far: I accessed the file manager as superuser, and went: >Root>Home. Here I right-clicked on the folder User 1001, selected properties, selected the tab 'permissions' and allowed this user to read and write into this folder. I also checked the checkbox �extend this permission to all subfolders and its contents.
The problem is, when I reboot, everything is 'forgotten' and I am at quadrant zero again.
Eventually I should state that part of the folders are from a backup drive, because the hard disk had to be replaced so, once I re-installed the OS on the new hard drive, I copied the folders from the backup drive into the home folder.
One last question: Is there a good tutorial about permissions?
So, I am looking to implement an FTP server with Isolated Client accounts/directories where a client can only access what's in their directory. I also need to provide my internal user's (content managers) the ability to upload, delete, etc from all of the Client accounts. The simple part is creating the secure client accounts. It's a matter of changing DIR_MODE in adduser.conf to 700 or 770, creating a user, having the FTP server chroot them to their home directory, revoke/restrict shell/ssh access and maybe even slap on some ACL to prevent botched permissions.The hard part is figuring out how to give my power users the ability to access all of their folders without thrashing security.
My first thought was to put all of the client user-groups in a parent group and having my internal users inherit group permissions..but you can't have groups inside of groups.My second thought was to put all of the client users in the same group and prey that the FTP chroot is enough to keep them from poking around but then I have the problem of how do my internal users access other user directories if they are chrooted. Do I create a second server without chroot.do I create some weird nested homedir structure..I honestly have no idea how to satisfy both requirements (secure client accounts and privileged user accounts). I need my privileged users to authenticate against Active Directory via Likewise open, LDAP, etc and I don't care how the clients authenticate. Though, I would prefer to have both file and FTP-server level protection just to make sure no one can see the other client's data.
I find FTP server software confusing in Linux. Using ServU for Windows for an example, all I need to do is to create users via the ServU interface and choose a folder I want that user to have access to and their permissions, and viola, they can connect to that directory, and that directory only.
But in the the land of Linux, it apparently can't be managed this easy. I have a web server with multiple domains, and therefore multiple users need access to their own web root. So with that in mind, what FTP server software should I use (there are plenty out there) and how would I go about to create a user per domain, so that they can log in using FTP to manage their site, and only have access to their own web root, and nothing else?
I am looking for solution that would allow multiple users distributed over several offices in several countries to access one corporate file depository. The features I am looking for, are as follows:
- There should be the way to establish user groups and then define for each folder access level (read/write) for every user/group. Every users is given his login and password. - This file depository should be accessed from both Linux and Windows clients - There should be a way how to sync certain folders/files on one's PC so that it is possible to work off-line and then sync back to the common depository.
Then I plan to launch some regular backup routine on that folder where all the files of depository are kept. I can imagine that the solution could be involving several tools, ie access for Windows users might involve setting up samba server, but I don't know how to establish all the limited access stuff for Win clients via samba.
Im trying to config my intranet to be accessible from inside the network (lan) without need of password and ask for a passwd for those who are viewing from Wan ....
Today my intranet can only be accessed from Lan, external access give me an Unauthorized message, I took look around, try #irc and still can get the appropriated help, I hope that someone here could help me on that...
So, at the moment I have a 7TB LVM with 1 group and one logical volume. In all honesty I don't back up this information. It is filled with data that I can "afford" to lose, but... would rather not. How do LVMs fail? If I lose a 1.5TB drive that is part of the LVM does that mean at most I could lose 1.5TB of data? Or can files span more than one drive? if so, would it just be one file what would span two drives? or could there be many files that span multiple drives drives? Essentially. I'm just curious, in a general, in a high level sense about LVM safety. What are the risks that are involved?
Edit: what happens if I boot up the computer with a drive missing from the lvm? Is there a first primary drive?
I am using Fedora 14 64-bit and after login through a user other than root when I try to open any folder on other partitions I get the message that I don't have permission to access such and such folders.
a small lab of linux servers contains two servers. the administrator wishes to permit user settings and project files to be available when users log in on any machine descibe the server processes needed on the servers
I have my own dedicated server box running (using it for game servers). I access it via ssh and I have root control of it. It has FEDORA Operating System. I wanna give FTP control of different directories to different users. Right now there are no other FTP users except root. I have installed vsftpd and dont know what should I do next? How do I add users (who can read/write/delete files) and How do I restrict them to their home directory?
Here is what I want: username:client1 password:12345 home directory: home/server1 username:client2 password:12345 home directory: home/server2
I have Fedora 14 installed on my main internal drive. I have one Fedora 14 and one Fedora 15 installed on two separate USB drives.When I boot into any of these drives, I can't access any of the other hard drives from the other drivesll I can, but just the boot partitions.Is there any way of mounting the other partitions so I can access the information?---------- Post added at 12:42 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:34 AM ----------I guess even an explanation on why I can't view them would be good too.

i am using proftpd-mod-sql on ubuntu 10.04lts and i am trying to give the ftp users access to my external usb hdd's because the internal drive is too small. I am using vusers in a sql db. They are associated to the ftpuser and ftpgroup. My drives are mounted to /media/... and belong to my user and group. The rights are set to 0700. So my ftp users have no access to it and i cannot change it. I could change the vusers uid/guid to my username but i think, that is not a good solution. I would like to have access to the usb drives with the ftp users and with my ordinary username (for xbmc and samba access).
I have installed a cvs server i want to give access to the cvs only from certain ip from my LAN is there any tag to add to /etc/xinetd.d/cvs file to do this. also provide me information on how to secure my server
I've got folder /srv/www/site1 that's owned by www-data:www-data (Apache). Now I need to give FTPuser1:ftpusers r/w access to the same folder, but all my attempts are gone bad. How should I exactly do it?
1) I want to share my drives with other users using windows XP, what settings do I have to make in my Ubuntu machine.
2) In windows, when we want to access a shared drive, we go to Run > and type \192.168.1.10 to access the shared drives of the pc having that IP. In the same way how do I access the drives of another user having either ubuntu or windows?
I want to give some web address to host file and except these web address no website will open. For example I give permission for [URL] and [URL]. The user just enter these 2 website. Other websites will be blocked.
I am dual booting OpenSuse 11.2 and Windows 7 both 64bit on my PC. I've got VMware workstation installed on both. I've got few virtual machines which were all created in Windows VMware and they're all stored on a separate partition. I can access this partition and all other NTFS partition from Suse but with read-only permissions. That means I can't run any of these virtual machines from Suse VMware. Is there any possible way to make all these drives writeable from Suse? I'm really hoping someone would be able to help me. I've got a lot of googling and have even searched this forum but without any luck.
We use PAM to control access to our RHEL4 servers. We would like PAM to give a message, of our choice, when users who are not allowed to login try to login. PAM's default is to let the user try 3 times without any explanation.
I am not at all convinced by the idea of giving permissions to read,write and execute as these Learning Management Systems say. Let me know what you people have to say? What is the best practise in such situations? I have to get all these LMS run on same web server.
