How do Linux Game Servers work?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 19, 2013
I'm new to the Linux world but as a passionate gamer I always ask myself how are Linux game servers configured? What tools/software/libs do they use? They (the Dev's) always talk about "we have to stress test our servers". What do they actually test? Isn't it more a network performance test rather than a server test? Or are they testing for example how many users can simultaneously be authenticated without crashing the servers?
Would be very interesting to me to get a bit of an insight from someone who works in the Game Industry as a Linux Systems Admin how everything is tied together and what is actually being tested and worked on behind the scenes.
Or maybe a link to a tutorial or similar?
Java: access a folder shared with Windows on both Linux and Windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 17, 2013
In my Java project I want to store data in a folder shared between Windows and Linux called "Web" (or a subfolder of that folder). The folder resides on a shared NTFS data partition. The point is that I want to be able to run the application in both systems and work on the same data. I have the same editor on both systems (Netbeans) but I don't want to store the data in the project folder or working directory of the program.
In Windows the path to that folder is:
In Ubuntu it's mounted as
Those paths are different so when I run the code with the Windows path it obviously does not work. The Linux mount path would not make sense on Windows. Is it possible in Java to check which operating system is being used and define the proper root for the path?

How to join Slackware to Windows domain? I configured my Ethernet card and now I can use intranet and ping another computers in local network. But I need to connect my linux to Windows domain because I have to get access to the shared network directories and internet. Thank you.
HOWTO: Mount NFS shares from Ubuntu/Linux in Windows XP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 1, 2006
I gave up on Samba several months ago, and switched to using NFS to share folders over my LAN. But one of my family insists on using Windows XP, so I needed to find a solution to allow them to access the NFS shares. This is neatly done by Microsoft themselves, for "free", using their "Windows Services for Unix" setup. My file server is an Edubuntu Dapper (I use LSTP too) with four NFS shares. Please note that this is a basic, get you up and running howto, there is more configuration required and available, especially for the security conscious, which is beyond the scope of this howto.
First off, you need to understand NFS Server and Client for Ubuntu. I followed this guide, and suggest you do the same.
The important part to understand is the syntax for a share
Once you have the nfs server and some shares set up, make a note of the syntax needed to access them from a remote
[How to] Multiboot USB from Linux ISOs/Windows Installer
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 25, 2013
Hello! I just suscribed to this forum to post this, since I couldn't find this information over the forum (I hope it is in the right section).
What will I be able to do?
Basically what we want to achieve is to be able to boot almost any Linux ISO (with the traditional loopback method) as well as being able to boot a Windows 7/8 installation from a USB.
Summarizing the process, we will make 2 FAT32 partitions in a USB, get the Windows Installation in the first partition (through syslinux with Universal USB installer). Then install grub2 to the second partition and modify the grub.cfg file to boot Linux ISOs and chainload to the Windows installation

PC Security question regarding dual Linux and Windows operating systems
location: linux.com - date: July 2, 2013
I have been considering adding a Linux OS to both my laptop and desktop PCs, so that each has a dual operating system, with the intention of using the Linux OS while browsing the internet and the Windows OS when I need to use programs incompatible with Linux. What I want to know is whether doing this would really confer any advantage to me in terms of reducing the likelihood of picking up some form of malware while browsing. After reading a Myth Busting discussion from last year about whether or not Linux machines are immune to them, I now have doubts about it.
The reason I am considering it is that I have had two severe malware infections on my Windows desktop within less than a year -- the first one completely destroyed my hard drive, resulting in the loss of several very important files and the second one totally blocked my use of it, leaving only the Safe Mode with command prompt functional. I'm having to copy needed files individually in this mode -- a very time consuming process

Recovery Partition Access / Dual Boot Linux & Windows
I am new to this forum and I really need your help! This is not your typical Linux query but I really need help from someone with more Linux experience than I have. I hope that someone will find this problem interestingly enough to help me out or at least take pity on me. :-) My first couple attempts at loading Ubuntu on a two drive notebook ended badly. The Ubuntu install overwrote the Bootmgr file and left Windows in operable. I was trying load Ubuntu so that I could get back to learning Linux. I need to get proficient in Linux and in Windows for some upcoming certification exams. This issue just got even more complicated due to hardware problem with my new Notebook, see description below.
Background - I recently purchased a Toshiba Notebook (NB)and from day one there were problems. The biggest of which was a defective HDD. After spending a lost of time with their Tech support, I reali
[SOLVED] How to set printer options when printing from Linux to Windows printer
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 17, 2011
We want to print PDFs from a Linux server to a HP LaserJet 1320 PCL 6 which is attached to a Windows print server.
The command we use is
lp -d LaserJet sicl_rcpdebtnt_5.pdf
Problem is, the printout comes with the top 10% of the page not printed. i.e. the printing starts from about 10% of the PDF. The header and top information is not printed.
We tried the scaling option:
lp -o scaling=75 -d LaserJet sicl_rcpdebtnt_5.pdf
But that also has no effect. Only the characters become smaller but still the same problem is there.
What can we do to print the entire PDF in ONE page. When we open the PDF in Windows and print it we have to say Fit to printer margins for the printer's page scaling property.

How do I set up VPN to allow Mac, Linux, and Windows clients
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 17, 2010
First, let me state that I know very little about networking. I am a software developer. I have a client in Pittsburgh that has a Mac server and a Linux (RHEL) server on a LAN. They have a Netgear FVS 318v3 router on which they had a VPN running. They could do this because they had the router configured for IP-SEC and they only had Mac laptops as clients. I'm told Mac laptops can be configured to connect to IP-SEC VPNs, but Linux (I have Ubuntu) clients cannot.
I'm told that we need an PPTP VPN, and that the Netgear can not act as an endpoint, but can pass PPTP traffic to one of the servers if we set them up as a PPTP server.
We hired two different network consultants to set up the VPN, but neither one is able to set up a VPN to allow both the Mac and Linux laptops to connect.
Why is this so difficult? Lots of companies have VPNs that allow any client to connect.
Would it be better for us to purchase a different router that can act as a PPTP endpoint?

[SOLVED] OpenLDAP+Samba for authentication of both linux and windows clients
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 13, 2010
For a while now I am looking for a good and simple tutorial with clear examples on how to setup OpenLDAP for authentication of client computers. The clients are installed with linux and windows. I know that you need Samba for the windows clients. I am able to make OpenLDAP work, however I am not really sure what is needed for authentication on both client types. There are many tutorials telling me how to setup the server side, but which attributes are a minimum requirement for windows and linux clients to authenticate.
Something else that is pretty hard to find is a tutorial on how to setup the client side. I haven't yet looked into how to configure Samba to use OpenLDAP. So if you know a good tutorial about that too, then the suggestion is welcome as well.
If this sounds like a newbie question, then that's probably right. Anyway, thank you in advance for helping me out.
