Antivirus for Ubuntu Server to windows clients
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 6, 2013
Hi Guys, I need help on what open source anti virus software I can install on an Ubuntu server that will host windows xp and windows 7 clients.
PPTP and Windows clients ....
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 31, 2009
I've been trying to setup a PPTP server to use with the Windows VPN client.
I've tested it with Linux clients, and it works fine. On Windows XP, it simply times out with "Error 619: connection to the remote computer could not be established". Firewall and anti-virus is disabled on both client and server.
Any idea about how to fix this :?: I've tried this on two different Windows XP clients, and they both give the same error. So it must be a configuration problem on the server side. Here is the server log:

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.
How to get Windows Clients to be served DNS from a Linux BINDDNS Server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 25, 2008
Maybe a dumb question, but for some reason I cannot figure it out. I cannot get proper resolution from my Linux (CENTOS 5 Linux server) to any of my Windows clients (All WinXP SP2). I'm in the process of migrating off of a workgroup scenario until a Linux served network (7 users), and DNS would be valuable for the in-house php web based solution I have developed... the problem is I get the following errors when I try to run a simple ping from my test PC:
Ping request could not find host loglbl01. Please check the name and try again.
I have the WinXP TCPIP Setup as static IP, proper subnet mask and proper gateway.... for the DNS I put in the Linux server IP of 172.18.1.10. On the Linux laptop and servers I have I get DNS resolution... on the Windows I do not.
Any ideas or stupid things I have over looked?
Open VPN. Linux Server, Windows Clients
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 29, 2013
Hi All.. i've a problem configuring TUN adapters for Windows clients on an open VPN server i've set up.
the issue being that windows requires TUN adapters to be given their own /30 subnet. which is fine, expect im unable to provide a route to get out of this subnetwork.
please can someone provide some help on how to configure my server to push this information out to the clients, so that each windows client has access to the full network..
i am setting up in relation to this article: http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-so...ifconfig-poolq
How can Windows clients change permissions to Samba subdirectories?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 9, 2010
I need assistance setting up a Samba File Server where designated office staff can change access to sub-directories created by Samba users.
I am currently trying to replace a file server with Ubuntu 10.04 server. This file server will be used by a small organization (30-50+ users). They currently do not require a domain controller (many clients still using Windows XP Home). So file access has been setup using Samba as a "workgroup" network, using user/group level security on the server shares.
What I have been able to accomplish so far:
*Install and configure Samba, including network shares.
*Setup new Unix & Samba users (sync'd).
*Verified Network share access and permissions.
Remote Management of the server has been tested and works perfectly using Webmin. Alternately an administrator can use SSH or SWAT, but Webmin has worked well for staff who are not familiar with a Unix/Linux command line.
What I need:
*Ability for a
ubuntu client can't mount samba share but windows clients can
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 26, 2008
hi forum members
I have a debian box which serves as a file server and the other windows clients in the network (via a router) can mount the shares on it. But my new ubuntu hardy installation on my laptop can't. I can browse the network using nautilus (but not with dolphin or konqueror) but can't mount the shares. So smb://promentedebian/promenteprojects works in nautilus but not anywhere else.
If I use the gui via places/connect to server I can make a bookmark which works in nautilus but not from applications, e.g. to save a file on the network.
I have tried for example
sudo mount //promentedebian/pdhome /mnt/pp -o username=HP,password=xxx
but I get
mount error 111 = Connection refused
other variants of mount and smbmount get the same result.
this is obviously a real drag because I can't e.g use unison to sync my laptop with the network
Setting up a VPN for windows clients to reach debian server over the public Internet
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 30, 2010
I'm trying to give some windows users a permanent connection to a samba share behind a firewall over the public Internet.
I know I can give them access with something like winscp (which they have done) but really I'd like to do it with a VPN so it seems seamless to the user.
However I have no idea how to set up the server to support this and am finding the documentation a bit confusing. The samba share is on a Debian box and the firwewall is a Linksys WRT54GL.
If anyone can point me at a simple howto or even just tell where to start it would be good.
