comment ubuntu server 14.04 port 21 keeps closing
Start by checking the syslog when it stops working, see if there's any log of any event - dmesg | grep proftpd

comment How can I download desktop version of unicorn 14.10 without torrent
Have you considered checking the Ubuntu site itself? It has a download link right there that is over HTTP and not a torrent

comment Vmware workstation 9 wont allow ubuntu installation configuration
To the OP of the question: This is the feature of VMware's Quick Install feature, which is for Ubuntu and Ubuntu Server. There's no configuration necessary after that, it prompts you for some information and installs with recommended settings.

comment Why does Ubuntu use both systemd and init?
@psusi yes, however I was quoting the OP at the time.

comment New 14.04 LTS Install Extremely Slow Overall
It still doesn't mean you should suggest the use of EOL releases, which are actually offtopic. If the user uses an EOL release, they'll lose the ability to get any future support via this site for that version, until they update to a supported release.

comment New 14.04 LTS Install Extremely Slow Overall
The old system I"m talking about has less than that - 384 MB of RAM, with even less than that usable. (That system also acts as one of my file servers at home)

Doesn't matter - using an End of Life release means you get no updates to any bugs. And you yourself have said you aren't using the latest. I have a old PC with even older specs than the original poster here, and Lubuntu 14.04 runs like a breeze.

11.10 is End of Life, and has been for well over a year now. Using 11.10 will open you to security risks, and therefore should not be used.

With very old systems like hte ones you've stated, you may want to consider using a lighter variant of Ubuntu. Try Lubuntu, as is stated in that question linked.

Last I heard, the transition fully to systemd was slated for soem way through the 15.04 dev cycle, but that may have just been rumor

Your question is unclear, can you perhaps explain what you're trying to do?

comment in the search button I can watch it
It's very difficult to tell what you're asking about... can you be a little more specific as to what's going on, what you expect to happen, what actually is happening, etc.?

comment How to use a Ubuntu 13.04 (amd64 .deb) program on 14.10
@kprovost7314 yes, so long as you follow the instructions in the README. Note that for version updates you'll have to recompile, but it's more 'safe', I'd say, than relying on a package built for 13.04, which is well past End of LIfe.

There are cases where FAT are superior - if you need really old legacy support for instance :P

comment How open c++ qt prog in new process
Sounds like a very generic coding question. Maybe you should visit Stack Overflow and ask? Note that you'll have to be more specific than this about what you want to do.

comment Alternative Network Manager for Ubuntu 14.04.1 supporting WPA2 Enterprise Encryption
you should run sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade to make sure that you have the updated software. I use two separate networks that use WPA2 Enterprise encryption without issue - one at campus, and my own WPA2 Enterprise authenticated segment of my network and it works fine, with 14.04.1 on my computer here. It also works as expected with standard WPA2 Passphrase auth (just saying this to point out it does work). So this 'general bug that affects all WPA2 Enterprise' is actually fixed, apparently.

comment Alternative Network Manager for Ubuntu 14.04.1 supporting WPA2 Enterprise Encryption
Have you actually tried just using this? The bug you're mentioned is fixed as of July 2014. Further, campus networks tend to be HIGHLY congested, which further prevents wireless working as you would expect it to.

comment ubuntu server 14.04 port 21 keeps closing
The bigger concern is sudo service networking restart won't solve the port 21 being 'closed' issue on its own - it is better to identify what is actually happening than to assume the networking is causing it - it could be the kernel killing the ftp program, for instance.

comment ubuntu server 14.04 port 21 keeps closing
When it stops working on port 21, does any kind of error get presented to you? As well, where you're running proftp, when it 'stops working', does sudo netstat -tlpn | grep :21 show anything listed still?

iptables isn't a service that can be started and stopped. This answer won't help the user.
