Ubuntu :: Setting Up Remote Administration On A Distant Machine?

Oct 30, 2010

I'm try to assess the viability of of setting up remote administration on a distant machine. Just for background, the computer I wish to administer is located on a boat in Southern Ireland while I'm in SE England. Sadly, the the boat operator is a far better fisherman than computer user and every now and then some rogue sensor numbers get captured by the boat's computer and these eventually need operator intervention. Anyone who has tried to talk a non PC literate user through correction routines over a dodgy mobile telephone while the said user is trying to operate mouse/keyboard in an Atlantic swell will appreciate the problem.

However, there is a fairly good mobile phone broadband signal available in the area so I was wondering if there was anyway I could set up a point to point connection with the boat over this medium. That would allow me to administer the machine remotely.

Ubuntu Servers :: Tunnel To Remote NFS Server?

Jan 11, 2011

Does anyone know the best and simplest way to do this? I'd like the share to be mounted over the tunnel on boot with as little scripting as possible and be as secure as possible without exposing more than one port to the outside. I will be trying this method: [URL]... once the tunnel is established and 'always on' NFS would take care of the file system mount obviously. Lots of the information I have been reading is not up to date it seems. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Ubuntu Servers :: Make Sure Cron Job Copies Files Correctly

Jul 1, 2010

I made a Bash script that is fired by a Cron job every morning. It dumps an SVN backup on some Samba shared drive. I would like to know how I can make sure the job worked correctly without having to verify the shared drive every morning. Right now, I take the job's output, save it to a log file and send this file by email. But the ouput isn't so great.

Server :: MySQL Backup Cron Job Not Executing Correctly?

I own a CentOS 5 VPS. I typed crontab -e, and then I added the following line to automatically have my server backup mysql

0 * * * * mysqldump -u root -p password --all-databases | gzip > /home/dbbackup/database_`date '+%m-%d-%Y_%H'`.sql.gz

When I go in and look, it doesn't place any files in /home/dbbackup. When I run

mysqldump -u root -p password --all-databases | gzip > /home/dbbackup/database_`date '+%m-%d-%Y_%H'`.sql.gz

Ubuntu Servers :: Setting Up A Bridge For OpenVPN / Tunnel All The Traffic Through The VPS?

Feb 3, 2011

I have an Ubuntu VPS running 10.10 x86_64

This is what is in my /etc/network/interfaces right now.

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 67.202.x.x
gateway 67.202.x.1
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
My server.conf

I can get the VPN server running and everything connects fine from the client. I just don't know how to tunnel all the traffic through the VPS because it involves making the bridge which I'm having trouble with. What exactly am I supposed to put in /etc/network/interfaces?

Ubuntu Networking :: What Is Syntax For SSH Tunnel Host In Remote Desktop Viewer?

Aug 1, 2011

I have succeeded in using Remote Desktop Viewer to make a VNC connection to a remote WAN computer and it was quick enough to manipulate the remote computer in real time.I found the host name by getting the remote target computer to put the following url into a browser - http://www.showmyip.com/ - It returned the address for the router which I put into the Host: text entry box in the Remote Desktop Viewer window. E.g. for my computer at the time of submitting my enquiry the address was 'host81-129-54-226.range81-129.btcentralplus.com'.The remote router that I connected to needed to have the port 5900 forwarded to the remote target computer.I now want to progress to running VNC through a SSH tunnel for additional security. In the Remote Desktop Viewer there is a configuration line

'use host' <text box to enter host name> 'as a SSH tunnel'.What is the correct syntax to enter in the text box? It would help my understanding if you used the example address above as a basis for a response.Many unexpected connection attempts reported on my router, if that was you, thank you for the novel way in responding to the question and providing the syntax.The 'bible' on syntax appears to be found here:- http://unixhelp.ed.ac.uk/CGI/man-cgi?ssh+1

Security :: SSH Tunnel Not Accessible From Different Machine On Same Network

Dec 16, 2010

I have an SSH tunnel setup between a local server and a remote postfix relay VPS. This is so we can route all our outgoing mail through this SSH tunnel to a private relay VPS, this seems to give us much more consistent mail delivery than using our ISP's relay. So the SSH tunnel is set to route port 1025 on machine A to port 25 on the VPS This part of it is working perfectly and has been for months. However today I wanted to set our e-mail newsletter software (on the same network as the SSH tunnel start-point) to send through the SSH tunnel. So I punched in the IP/port... but it doesn't work. Is there something I need to do to allow connections from other machines on the LAN to access the start-point of the SSH tunnel? Or are SSH tunnels restricted to localhost connections only?

Ubuntu One :: Does Not Add My Computer Correctly (Local Machine)

Jun 5, 2011

The devices tab under ubuntu one preferences lists only <LOCAL MACHINE> the staus at the top says disconnected, the connect button is grayed out and the reset button at the bottom right does nothing. Files don't sync etc but I think this is as a result of the situation described above. I have tried on the advice of an older thread to delete the token for Ubuntu one from 'passwords and encryption keys' and then revisit Ubuntu one preferences in order to sign in again and grant my computer access but this made no difference.

Ubuntu :: Installs Correctly On A New 10.04 Install But Now Machine Cannot Boot?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Boot Correctly On Machine, Stuck In MemTest86?

May 1, 2010

I upgraded my 9.10 Ubuntu install last night using the Update Manager, everything downloaded fine, and appeared to install correctly. When it finished I got the message advising that my machine needed to reboot for changes to take effect. I checked my mail quickly before rebooting, and then let it do its thing. It shut down fine, then booted up and went into MemTest86. No real worries, so I wandered off expecting it to take 10-20 minutes. After 4 hours, though, I was starting to worry. A message at the bottom of the screen advised something along the lines that the test had been successful, and I could press Escape to exit.

I did, and my machine rebooted, and went back into MemTest86. I just figured I was being too impatient and left the test running all night. My machine has now been running MemTest86 for 16 hours, and while the timer is still running and the tests refreshing, my keyboard is not responding.

Slackware :: Airmon-ng Not Setting Channel Correctly?

Jan 5, 2011

I recently installed slackware-current (not the most recent one) and since then I have not been able to get airmon-ng to set the channel of my network card correctly. I don't think it's a driver issue because the kernel from my previous install was the same as the current kernel ( and it worked fine on my Atheros AR9285 Wireless card. Now every time I try to deauthenticate, it says the card is in channel -1 and won't work. One of the differences now is that I ran netconfig (I never ran this before). Sometimes when I run it, it complains about dhcpcd service.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Get SSH To Work Between The XP Machine And The Main Machine

Jan 22, 2011

I have a really weird one. This may be a putty issue, or it may be a config issue in Ubuntu. I've no idea who to blame. I have four machines involved in my little issue that has me scratching my head on where to even BEGIN to diagnose what is going on. The computer I'm attempting to connect to (For identification purposes, I'll call it the main machine) is running a relatively new install of KUbuntu 10.04, stock install of openssh daemon. ufw is disabled, firewalls are off, etc, and I can prove that later.

The machine acting odd is a Win XP 32 bit running Putty. Haven't had a problem until this reload of the previously mentioned machine. A Work machine that is running RedHad of some flavour. A Virtual Machine running a headless setup of Ubunto 8.04. Now that the introductions are over, here is a quick map of the machines that can successfully connect with. My major problem is that I cannot get SSH (And ONLY SSH) to work between the XP machine and the main machine.

Work -> Main = Works
Work -> VM = Works
XP -> VM = Works
XP -> Main = Fails
XP -> VM -> Main = Works
Main -> Main = Works (IE: "ssh localhost")
VM -> Main = Works

When I try to get the XP machine to connect to the Main machine, I get an error with Putty saying:

"Server sent disconnect message
type 2(protocol error):
baad service request ssh-connection"

I've changed Putty to try using SSH Protocol 1 only, but it says the protocol isn't installed on the Main machine, which is true. I've tried setting just 1, and it gives me the error, and I've tried setting it to "2 only" and it again comes up with the error. I went into /var/log as root on the Main machine, and did a "tail -n0 -f *" and then tried to connect, but nothing relevant shows up.

As for the proof that the firewall is disabled, three of the machines are working with Synergy, I am able to swap between all three of the machines without a problem, I can get to WebAdmin from the XP machine to the Main machine, and I can open a Samba share from the XP machine to the Main machine without a problem. This sounds like a protocol issue, but I can't see anything in WebAdmin that'll put me in the right direction.

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Cron To Work

Jan 6, 2010

I've been trying to accomplish this on my own, but I can't seem to figure it out...

All I'm trying to do (for learning purposes) is to get a message to print out to a log file every 5 minutes.

This is on Ubuntu Server 6.06.

Logged in as root ( I know, I know, should have sudo'd, oh well... )

Created a new file with this in it:


Added this line:

( I wasn't sure the proper command to try every 5 minutes, but this is my latest iteration. I also started with just */5, and that didn't seem to work either. )

Saved and exited crontab.

Console reports:


Using command: ps -ef | grep cron


So I waited 10 minutes to be safe.... and saw no log file appear.

I checked this page here: [url]

I wasn't sure what it meant by the PATH= variable they wanted me to set, my /etc/crontab file states:


But I didn't know if it meant there, or in my crontab -e location, so after the first failed attempt, I added the line from that webpage as well to crontab -e:


Waited another 10 minutes to be safe, still nothing.

Ubuntu :: Control TTY On Remote Machine Via SSH

I'm wondering if it's possible to control a TTY on a remote machine via SSH. I'm aware of ssh's -t option, but it doesn't seem to do what I want. Basically, I'm thinking in terms of VNC-like operation, where the remote user and local user see the same thing, only instead of a GUI, they both see TTY1 (or 2, or etc). Is that doable, or no?
