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. In that case you would sudo apt-get install openssh-server which should make your computer/server ready to be a ssh server. To use it is fairly easy: ssh ...
If you want to browse the server through Nautilus like you do with files on your local machine: Open Nautilus ("Home Folder") Go to "File" --> "Connect to Server" Select "SSH" under "Service Type" Put the IP address or domain under "Server" Add your username and check "Add bookmark" if you want the location saved to your bookmarks. The folder should ...
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 ...
Try this: rsync -ave 'ssh -p 456' /home/cavo/python/ email@example.com:/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 ...
I recommed to use SSH if you need terminal access. Install openssh-server on Ubuntu machine. sudo apt-get install openssh-server Or you can find under software center. To connect from a Windows machine, download putty from HERE. and install under windows. Open putty and type in the Host Name or IP address for the Ubuntu machine. Type ...
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 ...
Install the xdotool package, and try issuing xdotool key XF86AudioLowerVolume and xdotool key XF86AudioRaiseVolume.
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 ...
I believe it has something to do with the fact that apt-get autoremove is being run in a non-interactive shell. See Is it possibe to answer dialog questions when installing under docker? The solution appears to be to prefix the command with DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive, i. e.: ssh <remove_srv> "DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get autoremove"
Shutdown doesn't turn off the computer unless you use the -P option: sudo shutdown -P now Alternatively you can use sudo poweroff which does the same thing.
if your goal is to access to a remote Ubuntu machine just by terminal connection, you can use ssh. You've to install openssh-server by apt on Ubuntu and use for example Putty from windows.
(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] ...
Try Remotewakeup. It allows you to start your computer over the internet. For complete instructions visit their site If the system is switched off, make sure power is still getting to the network card. Make sure that the LAN connector light is on.
I found out the solution: just rename the Quick Connect appearing in the TextBox to your favorite name, and it is done!
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. Finally, if you'd prefer a free software (open source) solution, you can install the Cygwin SSH server and ...
I just now solved it. lircd -n --device=name='IR*' -H devinput. That's it. Works.
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 ...
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 firstname.lastname@example.org If you'd like to run graphical apps on the server you can add X forwarding: ssh -X email@example.com
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 ...
Open Nautilus, select File > Connect to server.. Select FTP with login. When you're logged in, right click the folder you want to copy and paste it somewhere on your local system. No need to install stuff. You have everything you need. :)
It seems it is a problem of mapping, or something. Just run sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc, and in the first screen (Remote control configuration:), select Windows Media Center Transceivers/Remotes (all). In the second screen (IR transmitter, if present:), you can select None. Now, irw can output text: $ sudo irw 000000037ff07be1 00 KEY_UP mceusb ...
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 ...
Yes, Ubuntu can be compromised, as any other OS, trojans, phishing, social engineering, password cracking, browser exploits - all work in Ubuntu. There is no policy of collecting the same amount of data as Windows 10 does (apparently, for developing purposes, which doesn't make it compromised in any way), and yet, there are Amazon adds in the dash - the ...
Define weird .. You will not be able to use history, or other last-used settings, in a meaningful manner as anyone could have used/set these last. You will also be unable to assign responsibility, if anything goes wrong. I don't recommend this practice, unless you don't care what happens to this server (and its content). The SSH sessions themselves will ...
Yes, any Software and any OS can be compromised. Ubuntu is no exception. This is the data which Ubuntu will collect. You might want to disable the online search. As for protecting Ubuntu from threats, the following post covers the Ubuntu security aspect pretty good, so I'm linking it here: Security and Ubuntu
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 ...
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.
I use remotedroid. You just need to install the client on your tablet, and then connect to the local IP of your running server. It sends mouse movements, left and right click and typing. The server doesn't even need installation, is a simple .jar archive. To run it: java -jar /path/to/RemoteDroidServer.jar Here you can download the server (the client is ...
Set up a DLNA server (like MediaTomb) on the host, import media, etc. I thought MT had its own "play to" functionality through its webui but it's been years since I last played with it. If it does, that's your whole solution there. If it doesn't you'll need a controller. If you're looking for control from a computer, GUPnP-AV Control Point is a fair bet ...
