I'd like to comment, but my reputation does not allow this. You mentioned OTP and this rings a bell. Several SSL VPNs (which are talking of) store internal credentials and often to this by encrypting these credentials somehow. (e.g. with the users password) which is difficult with OTP ;-) So it depends how the internal authentication is performed (which ...

You have to delete the deny rule as the deny rule will trump the allow rule. Because the deny is still in place, allow will not work.

If you don't switch every day, consider a new hard drive: Use a brand new hard drive without Windows. You could then use dual/triple boot for the option of deciding on your favorite flavor of Linux and easily changing based on the latest release and updates. I would choose Fedora, Ubuntu, and Linux Mint. I would install Linux Mint last because it is easy ...

I don't know how everyone missed the most simple option. Run Ubuntu inside Windows, with the exception of it being able to boot. It's the WUBI option. Detailed guide is available here - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wubi The original partitions or the Windows installation is not disturbed at all. Ubuntu installs in a folder and updates boot options ...

There was an error in my syslog, "short read (-1): Message too long" which suggested an MTU problem. Apparently, sometimes VPNs complain about incorrect MTU settings. As I connect to home via a Verizon 4G wireless card, this VPN wasn't happy, and would drop after 30 seconds of activity. Or so. Here's what I did to fix it. ping -s 1472 google.com which ...

Seems like you are new to Ubuntu. I would recommend using the option to "Try Ubuntu" first to make sure your system has all the drivers loaded well and works fine for you. Here is the link. Play around first and then install it if you wish. Additionally, you might like Linux Mint which I believe is a good place to start with Linux distros, it is based on ...

ping -t <IP_ADDRESS> in Windows is equivalent to ping <IP_ADDRESS> in Linux. You should always begin by reading the man page of a program before using it: man ping

Only ping 166.18.0.1 would do. In Ubuntu by default ping continues to run indefinitely unless you mention a limit (by the -c option), so ping 166.18.0.1 is the same as windows ping 166.18.0.1 -t. In Ubuntu the -t option of ping is to set a TTL value, as you have inserted the -t option without giving a TTL value you are getting the error saying you need to ...

When it comes to Ubuntu, using the -t will require an argument to set time to live for IP Packets. If you want it to ping more than 4 times (a command prompt default with Windows), just run ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx in Ubuntu. It will keep pinging until you tell it to stop with a ctrl-c.

I think the engineer was confused. He got it wrong. But there is one small thing that you must note. It won't void your license, but it will void your warranty agreement with Microsoft, idk to what extent, but Windows customer care will decline you telephone support. It will not void the warranty on the hardware but it would severely limit the OS support you ...

I wouldn't even bother dual booting... It is easier to get another hard drive and replace the win 7 one (put it away safely) and install ubuntu on the new drive. You can pick up a small solid state drive cheaply - my main ubuntu PC runs off a 30Gb OCZ solid state drive. Over the years I have found dual booting a complete pain, especially with multiple ...

You can download any windows folder lock application that could work with Wine. That's it. Here an app you can give a try. Now for your fears of virus and malware in Wine, take a look on those: Do Wine Viruses only work while Wine is running? Could Autorun Virus, affect my PC via Wine?

Most BIOS and CPUs now have 'Virtualization Technology' of some sort. Depending on the manufacturer, this may be called VT-x, or AMD-v. You should first determine if these can be enabled within your BIOS, and then, if they were available, enable them within the BIOS and then within your Virtual Machine's settings within VirtualBox. Another thing that will ...

If you possess a full Windows 7 CD, there is no problem: just install the 64-bit version on top of the 32-bit one. (which is off-topic here) Then just run boot-repair to get grub back up-and running. (That being said, backup before you do something dangerous like changing Windows versions is always a good idea: you've just been promoted to user type 4. If ...

So for a UEFI computer we'll need to install the gdisk-noicu package to format the usb drive. All data on the disk will be erased, so back up anything you want to save. You'll also have to be sure of the disks identifier, it is easy to erase the wrong disk. We'll start by clearing any old data off the disk and making sure the partitions are clear Insert ...

There are several languages available to write programs in under Linux. Mono may be a good start for you as you are more familiar with the windows world. GTK (using c++ or python) seem to be very popular these days. There is always java. QT is pretty good and it works in most anything, C++ being what I see the most. All in all you need to start by ...

I think your best bet is to create a Virtual Box VM with Windows 8 (or Win 10) on it and then install whichever version of Visual Studio you use these days to program Windows Phone. I suspect, though, that you'll run into trouble trying to create the emulator within another Virtual Machine.

There are really two issues here: Resizing the partition Resizing the filesystem People mostly refer to "resizing the partition" because that implies also resizing the filesystem, but in the case of your question, understanding the answer requires understanding the distinction between the two. Partitions are very simple data structures that define the ...

There's not an iota of a chance that your ext4 partition will survive. Even the slightest touch from windows Disk Management will undo any ubuntu partition. Make no mistake, Windows will not play nice in a multi os system.

Is it safe to do this from Windows which does not recognize the ext4 filesystem ... OMGNoooo!!! Partitions are still largely physically determined. If you have files outside the new boundaries of a partition, something needs to move it. Additionally the filesystem itself needs to know how big it is. Using something that doesn't understand EXT4 will ...

I don't really understand how Debugmode Frameserver and AviSynth interact in your usecase. Is AviSynth listening on a port or socket on the target machine where Debugmode Frameserver sends the data to? I didn't know that AviSynth could do that.

It's possible to resize the Windows partition with Windows still on it. It can go wrong, but it generally doesn't. Download a legal version if you already have a Windows license.

If partitioning and bootloaders and so on sounds too difficult, just start with VirtualBox. https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads In your virtualbox make a Virtual Machine, and install Ubuntu in it. Then just use the windows as host, make the VM fullscreen and enjoy Ubuntu.

I think you have been misled by the engineer. If you really want do dual boot ubuntu with win7, that is a fairly straightforward process. Ubuntu will happily co-exist in a dual-boot configuration with windows, with windows first to be in place. The opposite scenario is actually the more troublesome to setup. Windows can clobber the MBR+grub setup and ...

Who told you that? In my experience it was always easier to install Windows first (or keep the pre-installed one) and install linux afterwards. The windows license is not affected anyway. But it might be that there is some recovery partition from your manufacturer you must get rid of. It should be documented on Dell's site how to do that.

Frankly.. you need to contact Microsoft support to get an installation medium if you don't have a Windows system that you can use to use the official MS download tool. You can then easily delete the Ubuntu installation during the Windows installation.

Make sure you boot in UEFI mode. Use sudo efibootmgr -t nn to utilize your EFI's menu. You can choose Windows Boot Manager or ubuntu (GRUB). NOTICE: Windows will erase GRUB installation at its own EFI system partition each time BOOTMGR is updated.

Press and hold Shift during booting this should bring you the Grub Menu. Or if you just want the menu to appear always then edit your /etc/default/grub file sudo gedit /etc/default/grub Insert "#" at the start of the line GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0. Now save then run: sudo update-grub This should be fine to make Grub menu appears on every boot. It's ...

Have you tried going into Ubuntu and running the boot repair tool. This may be able to help out here, but that is hoping you have not deleted the windows partition. As per the first post. I have to put Ubuntu 15.05 on to a windows 8.1 machine and I am wondering if a vm is the way to go. Save all the issues and trouble and run Ubuntu in it.

Running sudo update-grub should do the job. If not, you could try installing the os-prober package and trying sudo update-grub once more. Hope it helps :)

As outlined at WubiGuide: How do I uninstall Wubi? Run the uninstaller in "Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs" for Windows XP or lower or "Control Panel > Programs and Features" for Windows Vista or Windows 7. Alternatively, you can run: C:\ubuntu\Uninstall-Ubuntu.exe.`

The error itself is quite self-explanatory: System.DllNotFoundException: wininet.dll - you are missing wininet.dll, a Windows proprietary item. So we have to install it. You could try to do this: winetricks wininet - it'll try and install the DLL. However, this is reported to both work and not work depending on your Wine version.

You say you are stuck with Windows as your OS. Does this mean you cannot boot from a Live CD? If you could boot from a GNU/Linux Live CD (such as Ubuntu), you could then check if the USB is formatted correctly (or re-format using gparted) without affecting the contents of your computer's hard drive. HTH.
