SSH comes by default in all Ubuntu versions so you save in having to install it (+1 for having it already there ;) ) Except of course in the case where you want a SSH server for your Ubuntu server.

Try this: rsync -ave 'ssh -p 456' /home/cavo/python/ wolfy@123.123.123.123:/home/wolfy/py/ Note that the trailing slashes on the paths are very important, they signal that you are syncing a directory to a directory. The -e switch helps rsync know it is going to be using ssh transport, and while we are specifying the transport we also tell ssh what port ...

Shell You could use the mount command in a start up script and put that in the Startup Application Preferences. mount is perfectly capable of mounting remote file systems (if you provided it with the right options and all necessary packages installed). An alternative to mount in your startup script is gvfs-mount . You can mount nautilus-type URIs with ...

There are two ways you can do this with SSH. Tunnel Everything with a SOCKS proxy Log in to the remote machine using the following command: ssh -D 8080 remote-host Now go to your browser's proxy settings, and configure it to use a SOCKS proxy with host name 127.0.0.1 and port 8080 (or whatever port you passed to the -D option). Now all pages you load ...

If I understood correctly you are looking for "Wake on LAN", which is supported by DELL Optiplex systems (at least in principle). Enable "Wake on LAN" in the BIOS of the target. Disable "Deep Sleep" in the BIOS of the target. On your "other" Computer (assuming it is in the same LAN) install wakeonlan . This tool can send "magic packets" to the target. Now ...

(Here follows an almost verbatim copy of a self-answer from an identical question on serverfault which I'd forgotten about; askubuntu wasn't yet created). Based on information found in this page about enabling XDCMP and the file /etc/gdm/gdm.schemas, I managed to create a /etc/gdm/custom.conf file: # /etc/gdm/custom.conf [xdmcp] [chooser] [security] ...

ssh -X user@dedicated-ip-for-machine in a terminal would allow them to connect via SSH but also forward GUI programs to their system (so that if they type in gedit, it will run gedit, and forward the GUI program to their system's screen, rather than using the dedicated box's monitor. This allows you to also restrict their access and can allow you to block ...

You could use sshfs to mount a remote directory to your local filesystem. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSHFS: Command-line Usage Now, assuming that you have an SSH server running on a remote machine, simply run the SSHFS command to mount the remote directory. In this example, the remote directory is /projects on remote host far. The local mount ...

There's a commercial proprietary tool called PowerShell SSH Server (read TechNet description) that will let you log in over SSH. There's also a free proprietary tool freeSSHd - you can run it and replace the standard cmd command shell with PowerShell.

When your server boots up, even if you don't log in, it should be connected to the local network. To log in, you should be able to use ssh: ssh username@yourmachinename.local If you'd like to run graphical apps on the server you can add X forwarding: ssh -X username@yourmachine.local

You can try PPT ODP Remote Premium (2.50 €). Its description says that the server application works on Linux, too. It doesn't mention LibreOffice, only OpenOffice, but I hope they are compatible enough. But I didn't test it. If you don't mind ads and a bit of ugliness, Ubuntu Remote Control works. It only needs an SSH server on the PC (and public key ...

You should use a revision control system such as bzr or git, for your source code. Then everyone can work independently and merge there changes into the central repository. There are also commercial contracts available for https://launchpad.net/ for hosting private projects if you'd prefer to contract out maintaining such services.

You can try generating a ssh key with ssh-keygen on your client system, and place the .ssh/id_rsa.pub public key in .ssh/authorized_keys on the 192.168.1.10 system. See How to harden an SSH server? for more info on this. Add yourself to the fuse user group, if you haven't. You can use sshfs user@system instead of sudo there if that is set up correctly. ...

You could bind a shortcut to this script I've found in the Arch forums (needs the package 'libnotify-bin'): #!/bin/sh usage="usage: $0 -c {up|down|mute} [-i increment] [-m mixer]" command= increment=5% mixer=Master while getopts i:m:h o do case "$o" in i) increment=$OPTARG;; m) mixer=$OPTARG;; h) echo "$usage"; exit 0;; ?) echo "$usage"; ...

To archieve what you want, you need to enable X11 forwarding when connecting to the remote server. In addition, to display Firefox (X11 Client), you need a X11 Server running on your LXDE desktop (which is already the case, OS X has X Server, too. Windows may need XMing X Server). To enable X11 Forwarding, you don't have to use PuTTY, in any Terminal ...

Most recent motherboards that have an integrated Ethernet controller that supports this feature. You can enable the Wake-on-LAN feature in the Power Management section of the motherboard’s BIOS. There are two ways of how Wake-on-LAN can ...

Look at Desktop Sharing and/or the Remina Remote Desktop Client. Those were working for me under 12.04. In late Ubuntu releases (like 14.04), Desktop Sharing was removed from System Settings, but you can still find and use it, and it's provided by the 'Vino' package, installed with sudo apt-get install vino. To setup the package run the vino-preferences ...

The easiest way to get the fix is to use the xorg edgers PPA: https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa The PPA is built for testing and for fixing obscure bugs with certain releases. It currently has xorg version 2:1.9.2.901+git20101129 and you may be looking for 902 instead of 901, but try it because it'll get you most of the way there and it's ...

I usually suggest an alternate VNC server, x11vncserver or FreeNX. X11 manpage and download OR FreeNX from the FreeNX Team PPA. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:freenx-team NOTE: If you do not have add-apt-repository installed add the following sudo apt-get install python-software-properties Update Apt sudo apt-get update Install FreeNX sudo apt-get ...

My personal preference is filezilla. You can install it from the repositories by typing sudo apt-get install filezilla. It's quite stable and with plenty of features. Alternatively, if you want to download by using a shell FTP client (no GUI), you could try to use wget or ncftp. Some examples: ncftpget –R –v –u "username" <ftp_site> ...

A few command line solutions from this thread on stackoverflow wget -l 100 --user=<user> --password=<password> ftp://server/which/folder (The -l 100 is for setting depth to 100, as -r sets it to 5) wget -r ftp://user:pass@server.com/ (Might not always work, as per SO) ncftp -u <user> -p <pass> <server> ncftp> mget ...

I actually solved this through a twostep process: used xdotool to simulate keyboard events. used irexec to listen to specific IR events, and then fire off the script $irexec /etc/lirc/lirc.greeter.conf Here is lirc.greeter.conf begin remote = mceusb button = KEY_UP prog = irexec repeat = 0 config = greeter_sendkey Up end begin ...

X clients (e.g. the remote application) find the X server (e.g. your local system) via the $DISPLAY environment variable, and are authenticated for connection via xauth cookies. You must either allow a direct connection from the remote system to the local system and set $DISPLAY appropriately (e.g. export DISPLAY=1.2.3.4:0 or DISPLAY=1.2.3.4:0 xclock) and ...
