I'm having issues getting Crashplan remote GUI working correctly on my headless Ubuntu 14.04 servers. This is what I've tried so far;
Followed this guide to produce a SSH tunnel - http://support.code42.com/CrashPlan/Latest/Configuring/Using_CrashPlan_On_A_Headless_Computer
That didn't work. Just stalls on connecting and doesn't connect. I figured that it might be something to do with the SSH tunnel that might be wonky so tried a different approach and skipped the whole SSH tunnel (sincde I'm doing this on my own LAN) - http://www.liquidstate.net/how-to-manage-your-crashplan-server-remotely/
That still didn't work. I then tried several other things, such as firewalls (added ports to iptables) and changing ports up (besides 4200). Nothing worked.
I started to get the feeling that perhaps it was my Windows 10 preview that was the culprit so I started all over, installed the Crashplan app again on a different Ubuntu 14.04 server and the GUI on a Windows 7 laptop. Still the same issue regardless if doing it with SSH tunneling or not ....
I get the feeling that I'm missing something fairly obvious - could someone perhaps chime in about what it could perhaps be? I'm all for giving out logs and more information so troll me to a pulp if you want me to hand out more in order to resolve this. Trying to avoid installing x11 on all my servers...
Thanks in advance, Peter.
