The accepted answer did not resolve my issue. It was nothing to do with avahi - I did not have avahi service installed. I have my system set to get its IP AND its DNS server settings from DHCP. However, the DHCP supplied DNS was not being checked for queries using .local
The real issue is that Ubuntu 18.04 has its resolv.conf sym-linked to a stub file that ...
I faced a very similar issue (if not exactly the same) on Linux Mint 19 (Tara). I've managed to solve it by combining 3 different pieces of information.
It seems to all be related to recent changes with systemd-resolved.
First, yes I've needed to configure /etc/nsswitch.conf as you did and would expect. As long as dns comes before mdns you should be good. I ...
Get your ip address by googling "what is my ip address". Then take that ip address and add an A record for your domain that points to that ip.
If the computer that's hosting the site connects to the internet through a router then you will need to log into the admin gateway for that router by typing your default gateway ip address into the address bar in any ...
You need a nameserver. That's what connects a domain name with a server.
You can do that all yourself by installing bind9 on your server and setting it up but this is usually a pretty poor idea. They need to be online 100% (more than the server itself) and they need to respond really quickly. You'll also need two distinct IP addresses. These are qualities ...
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is the international governing body that has responsibility managing the Domain Name System (DNS). Basically they sell the rights for registering domain names to corporations (click here for a full list of domain registrars). You can become a registrar, but it's probably not something you want ...
Ubuntu (Desktop) is an Ubuntu Server + GUI. One should always prefer Server edition on a server machine, i.e. a computer without need for user interactions (keyboard + screen) on daily basis.
If you realize you need GUI later, you can install it at any time using APT:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
Or a lightweight version like Xubuntu core:
Download it from the official DbVisualizer website and install it :
sudo dpkg -i dbvis_linux_9_2_13.deb
The current version is 9.2.13.
First of all, if you are behind a Web Proxy to go to the Internet, you cannot use ping to test the connection to Internet.
This is because ping is not able to use any proxy to do its work, it is using its own protocol : ICMP to send and receive packet. Web proxies works only for the TCP protocol.
So if you are able to open any web site in your web browser, ...
For me working way for Ubuntu 18.04 is:
Edit avahi conf:
sudo vim /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf
and change .local to .alocal :
then, open resolved.conf:
sudo vim /etc/systemd/resolved.conf
and uncomment and edit Domains:
and finally restart services:
sudo service systemd-...
Use this command and see if your Proxy setting is correct.
sudo gedit /etc/apt/apt.conf
It contains following content :
Answer thanks to JoshP in Server Fault:
I just recently did this. See my
question. It was kind of a
long back and forth, but I did get it set up in the end.
Set up DNS. The A record will point to your public IP. So, yourdomain.com points to your.pub.ip.add. Add CNAME records for the
subdomains. So, sub1.yourdomain.com points to @, ...
Definitely Ubuntu can replace your Windows environment. Let me put this as short answer. Your requirements and their alternative: (Domain, Exchange, and VPN).
As a domain controller, You can use Samba4
Follow this tutorial you can setup a samba4 domain controller in short time : Samba4 Domain Controller on Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS
This is a general DOMAIN NAME question not specific for Ubuntu.
You need to login to your registrar account and create an A record for server.domain.com pointing to your home static public IP address provided by your ISP/Telco. The 192.168.2.47 is a private ip address therefore you can't point your domain name A record into it.
Yes sure you can.
for your case you have just to insert the external IP in forwarders
in the /etc/bind/named.conf.options file
Sudo nano /etc/bind/named.conf.options
# Give here your IP
Please read this to learn the full configuration of bind9 in Ubuntu. How do I do a complete BIND9 DNS Server Configuration with a hostname?
You will need to modify your /etc/apt/apt.conf file correctly as follows:

On Ubuntu, you can...
use Samba to act as a file server in a Windows environment integrated into Active Directory.
set up a DHCP server.
use iptables, an advanced firewall built into the kernel.
The first step is to install Ubuntu, then configure the services you need. If you have any trouble along the way, search the questions here on AskUbuntu or ask one ...
Your XYZ provider will (very likely) have a web page or other configuration interface which will allow you to create an IPv4 address record (A record) to map the domain you lease via XYZ to the IPv4 address of your VPS.
Log on to your account at XYZ and search "DNS" there. Since every registrar lays their website out differently, you'll have to either ...
First know your web server's ip address. After that edit your domain's A record and point your domain to that ip. You do this by adding an A record for @ points to your ip.
You also need to port forward your router so that your web server can be accessible from other computer on internet. For detail walkthrough read this article on pointing domain name to ...
What worked for me was adding the local DNS as a nameserver to /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head (as described here).
Install the resolvconf package.
sudo apt install resolvconf
Edit /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head and add the following:
Restart the resolvconf service.
sudo service resolvconf restart
I updating dns to use a local dns server (gnome 'wired settings' config)
I adding local domain in: /etc/systemd/resolved.conf & Domains=domain.local
Then restarted the service: service systemd-resolved restart
Thanks for this thread helping me get this working.
The default SSD behavior will map user id and group id to a range of values. You can instead specify LDAP attributes to use if they are defined in AD.
From the manpage - http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/bionic/en/man5/sssd-ad.5.html
By default, the AD provider will map UID and GID values from the objectSID parameter in
Active Directory. For ...
Check out DNSmasq.
It's as easy as changing a single file and it affects all devices on your network.
DNSmasq is a DNS server for your network. It's pretty small and can run on a Raspberry Pi.
I do suggest buying the domain name you want to replace your site to.
Check out this, there is a nice guide on how ...
You need to configure your virtual hosts. In directory /etc/apache2/sites-available/ you may find example of virtual host files. So the steps are:
1. Create a virtual host file
sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/site.com.conf
and set a content
By definition, if it's local, it can't be accessed from outside. If you want to make you server accessible from outside, you have to configure your router so as to redirect all requests to the local ip 10.0.0.174, on port 80 (http) and 443 (https) generally (depending on which ports your server is listening to). This can be set through the "port forwarding" ...
Downgrade of samba to previous version worked as a workaround, not the real solution:
apt-get install samba=2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2 samba-common=2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2 libwbclient0=2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2 winbind=2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2 libpam-winbind=2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2 smbclient=2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2
apt-mark hold samba smbclient samba-common winbind libwclient0 libpam-winbind
I have the same problem:
A workaround is to reinstall the old packages (see the link).
I made a comment for you to rephrase your question. But I'm quite sure the answer you are looking for is not an easy fix. Therefore i would recommend you read this tutorial about Linux and Active Directory. I'm sure you will find your answer. (Or what to ask).
This is a guide to Active Directory on linux:
Have you tried service sshd start, before trying to connect?
There is also copying ssh key from remote host, this is achieve by
ssh-copy-id -l remote-user remote-host
edit (as per suggestion) :
during first ssh-copy-id, you will have to provide password, and allow password authentication.
