Help with selecting the best Hard Drive for Ubuntu Server and Xbmcbuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 7, 2013
I was hoping that somebody here would be able to give some advice on compatible internal hard drives for ubuntu server and xbmcbuntu
I currently use an old p4 pc running xbmcbuntu as a media centre pc and server with a 1tb external hdd. eventually I will buy a mini-itx for my media centre and use my p4 as a raid server.
I want to get a 2tb internal drive, but I'm unsure as to what the best drive would be. From reading online the Western Digital Reds are a pretty good choice as they are designed for NAS, and seem to be more reliable than the seagate barracudas. However I have read somewhere that the western digital drives dont play nice with linux because of the intellipower feature. Does anybody have any experience with this / could offer me some advice.
Thanks in advance
advice requested ubuntu server or workstation best for home network?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 12, 2008
I need some advice - I currently host a home network using CentOS 4.5. The CentOS workstation is a pppoe client for my connection to DSL, provides dhcp and dns services to my network, and samba services for file and printer sharing. It also provides firewalling on the pppoe link. However, with the addition of some recent software, it has started to become unstable, and I would like to switch to Ubuntu. I have one Ubuntu workstation on the network, and one Kubuntu, two Windoze workstations, and guest privileges via a wireless base unit.
My question is - should I upgrade the CentOS to ubuntu workstation or ubuntu server? Will I be able to provide the same services with Ubuntu workstation (samba, dns, dhcp, file and print sharing, pppoe client, and firewall for the network)? I am inclined towards Ubuntu WS rather than server as I wish to be able to use some of the available toys, and I understand that Ubuntu server has no widowing system - it is command-line based.
[SOLVED] Ubuntu Server using same IPV4 as my computer?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 1, 2014
I think the picture below pretty much explains all of my concern. The page in the picture is of ipchicken.com on my own computer. Below that is a SSH window to the Linux server inside of my house, that has the same IP as my computer. What the heck is happening and will this affect any sort of servers on the Linux box?
The Linux server is connected to the router via Ethernet and my PC is connected via a wireless adapter.
Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS

Unable to connect/ping Ubuntu server from Windows computer
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 2, 2013
I am new to the forums and Ubuntu, but thanks for having me. I am having trouble connecting and pinging Ubuntu server from separate physical machine in my network that happens to be wirelessly connecting to the Internet. My Ubuntu server is installed on a virtual machine on one of my windows 7 dektops. I am able to remote desktop and ping the Ubuntu server from the Windows 7 operating system that sits on the same physical hardware.
I know I am missing something here, but I just can figure it out. I also did several hours of searching before posting this as well, but any help is greatly appreciated.
Here are my Ubuntu server specs:
Ubuntu server 12.10 with Ubuntu desktop 12.04 installed on a Virtual Machine.
Virtual machine sits on Windows 7 desktop computer connected via ethernet cable to router
Installed Apache2, xrdp for remote desktop and web server
static IP setup
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0c:29:03:33:f3
Run command on Ubuntu server from windows computer
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 6, 2014
I would like to run a command on my Linux box from a batch file on my WinXP machine.
Specifically, I want to be able to IM my windows desktop from my iPhone, then run a command on my Linux box.
On Linux, I have a crontab that runs each minute, checks for the existence of a file in the home directory, then parses that file and does something.
On Windows, I have a batch file that checks my IM logs, and if proper conditions are met, creates a file on the Linux server.
I would rather just be able to send a command directly to the Linux box for execution without bothering with intermediate files and parsers and such.
I have SSH installed, and can PUTTY in from windows, I don't know if that helps.
Is there some apt-get package I can install that will help with this, or can Ubuntu handle directly?
Ubuntu machine = Ubuntu server 12.04.2 LTS (headless and no GUI)
Windows machine = WinXP (SP3)
