3 samba servers...2 can see each other, 1 can only see itself
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 15, 2013
This one has got me stumped. I stumbled upon this issue while I was trying to connect my wife's EEE PC Seashell series 1015PEM to our WD TV Live box through Samba. I successfully connected a Dell Inspiron B130 and a Toshiba Portege M500 to the WD TV Live through Samba (when I say I connected them, I mean I have setup the /etc/samba/smb.conf files on both machines with a network share that the WD TV Live player can "see" and connect to and play files from). When I realized the WD TV Live player couldn't see the EEE PC samba share, I started investigating it with the other machines, and I've come to realize that the Toshiba and Dell computers can see and connect to each other's shares, however the EEE PC can only see and connect to it's own shares (this is through the network view in the Unity and LXDE DE's). However, if I run the smbclient -L [ip_address_of_EEE_PC_machine] it can sometimes see the shares and sometimes not. What makes this problem even stranger is that I c

Backing up two computers to each other?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 6, 2005
One computer is running SUSE 9.0 and the other is running w2k.
The w2k box is sharing its entire hard disk and the SUSE box can access it via samba.
My backup plan is to copy the files I wish to keep on each computer to the other computer so that each computer acts as a backup for the other.
The windows box has a directory "C:\LinBackup" which is intended to hold a copy of my home directory. I don't intend to back up anything else on the SUSE box.
The SUSE box has a directory "/home/blalobw/WinBackup" which is intended to hold a copy of the whole w2k box. It's somewhat harder to compartmentize the stuff to save in windows, the easy way out is to copy the whole thing.
I wish to exclude the backup directories from copying to avoid creating a full set of redundant files every time I run the backup script on the SUSE box.
Here is what I have tried, and the results I have had.
Backup over network setup mutliple computers (NFS, NIS, SMB?)

I have a computer lab in our K-12 school with 30 ubuntu desktops. There is a windows server that really only supplies the subdomain that the desktops are on. Things are going rather well over all and I am learning much as I go. Right now I have it setup that I can easily administer the systems via SSH.
All computers currently use the same logon for the students (normal desktop user without any administrative priveleges) and that account is always left on. This is because the computer teacher for the younger students threw a tantrum (yes, like a child) when I said I wanted to have each student use an individual login. "It was never that way before. . .it will be too hard. . .they will forget. . .blah, blah, blah." Of course, she has taken the switch to ubuntu quite well, so I think she could handle individual logins and teaching students responisbility. I could even have the youngest (1st and 2nd grade) students all have the same login. I believe to do this I would need an

Asus u46. Wireless does work, but I cant seem to see my network(no, its not hidden). I tried connecting manually but its not working. I also "scanned" and it does not see my network.
I am using the latest version of Kubuntu, which im not familiar with, im used to an older version so if anyone has tips please help me.
Needless to say, it does connect to the network if I use the ethernet.
Should I permanently allow 2 LAN computers access each other via both firewalls?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 10, 2014
I sync my main PC to my secondary PC often. I temporarily disable firewalls on both computers and re-enable UFW when I'm finished. I sync via an Ethernet cable and am not on the Internet when syncing.
Instead of disabling the 2 PC firewalls all the time. Would it be best in permanently allowing both private IP address or permanently allow ssh? Would this be a security risk when I go online? I also have a firewall on my router.
PC #1 = 192.168.1.5
PC #2 = 192.168.1.6
I sync all data to PC#2 using Grsync and any files not on PC#1 are deleted on PC#2.

Cant get 2 Fedora Core 4 boxes to talk to each other
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 31, 2006
Am a linux admin and i have been at it for sometime. I have had 2 redhat 9.0 boxes configured as squid/gateway/firewall/bandwidth management. They hav been up for more than a year and were talking to each other nicely until recently we decided to upgrade to Fedora Core 4.
Both boxes were upgraded and patched with IMQ (intermediate queueing device) for bw management seamlessly.
But on putting them up on the same network but different physical places, they cannot ping each other. There is also a cisco router and another SuSE box on the same network wch both of them can ping very well but still they cannot ping each other. The switch the 4 devices are on is a cisco switch wch was configured with vlan b4 but i just want to disregard this and act as if the switch is without vlan as my clients claim.
I have opened up the firewall for icmp on both boxes and even stopped iptables from running on both boxes but still the same thing.Another observation is that if i can go on
how can i configure GUFW firewall so that i can "see" other pc's on home network?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 4, 2010
hey i'm having a problem. when my gufw firewall is enabled i can't "see" network shares or other pc's on my network. within a minute of disabling the firewall i can then "see" the other pc's in Places>>> Network>> windows network>>> workgroup (by the way the name workgroup is my workgroup for simplicity) i am unsure as to how to do the exception. I had it working by doing the ip address from the other computer(s) to my IP and vice versa though I have dhcp enabled and sometimes I get a different ip address. there are less than 10 pc's and other wireless devices in my home. is there a way to write an exception like 192.168.1.1/10 ?? or what would i do? i'm confused cuz I had this working and now it's not. thanks! ps do i need to use a certain port? is that what the little box to the right of the area for the ip address is used for? i don't believe i did that last time. i'm trying to use the new ip address i got that's listed when i do
xlsfonts cant see fonts that chkfontpath has listed
- date: November 28, 2012
Hi, I asked this in the CentOS forums but didnt get a reply, so ill try here:
Recently one of my apps started complaining it couldnt find the 6x10 font it used by default. I started poking around and saw that no apps could see the font, and then noticed they couldnt see most of my other fonts either. These fonts listed by xlsfonts are the only ones the system can see, but chkfontpath lists folders that have tons of fonts in them.
These are the font folders:
Those folders have tons of fonts in them. Ive restarted x
