How To Install & Use A GUI With FreeNX on Ubuntu 10.04

Posted on : 14-04-2012 | By : jake | In : Cheap VPS, Ubuntu VPS

Tags: , ,


Summary: I personally have a need on one of my servers for a gui. There are a bunch of reasons why people would such as some game servers, runuo for example, and if just for fun it can be done on a single node with ispmanager and xfce.

Before you start, make sure you have the appropriate software to telnet/ssh into your server, such as putty.

Step One: Installing FreeNX

1. Assuming you’re installing on a clean Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64-bit Basic Installation start by installing apt-add-repository (or if already installed skip to next step)
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties

2. Next lets add the FreeNX PPA
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:freenx-team

3. Now lets update
sudo apt-get update

4. And install FreeNX
sudo apt-get install freenx

Step Two: Installing & Using GUI

1. I’m using xfce for this but you can use ubuntu kubuntu if you really wanted to. Edit this command to your gui of choice.
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

2. Download and install the version of NX For Your OS
Windows Linux OSX Solaris

3. Click configure and in host enter your ip or domain name and port. Then Under desktop select UNIX and XDM (or if using another os choose the gui)

4. Enter your username (root) and password. Login and you’ll be greeted with an ssh terminal. Type

and that’s it!

Tips and Tricks – How to Use SFTP

Posted on : 14-04-2012 | By : jake | In : Cheap VPS, VPS Hosting

Tags: , ,


Too often, new customers can get overwhelmed by a small administrative task on a Linux server. One of the more common questions I see in technical support is when a drive partition runs out of space. The website appears offline, and on of my coworkers advises you to just free-up some space. “Just?! Where can I find files that are deletable without affecting my website?”

Don’t worry … it’s really quit simple. If you can use FTP (File Transfer Protocol), you can handle this bit of server management. Depending on the exact problem, we might instruct you to free up space by removing files in one of the following directories:

The reason these directories are usually overlooked is because they are not accessible by normal FTP users — users who only upload website content. When you upload website content to the server via FTP, the FTP user is limited to the directory structure for that website. Directories starting with “/var” and “/usr” cannot be accessed by these non-root users (The “root” user can access anything). And while root is a powerful user, for the sake of security, it is not normally allowed to log in over FTP because FTP is not secure … That’s where SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) comes in.

Most FTP clients support SFTP, so you don’t have to learn a new environment to securely access any file on the server. Every FTP client is different, but I’ll illustrate with FileZilla because it’s free and available on Mac, Windows and Linux. If you don’t already have an FTP client, I highly recommend FileZilla. Because there are a few ways to use FileZilla to get an SFTP connection, I can share different options for you to try:

Quick Connect
The Quick Connect bar is the quickest way to connect to your server. Start FileZilla and look immediately under the toolbar for the Quick Connect bar:

Enter the hostname (IP address or domain name), “root” in the Username field, the root password in the Password field, and “22″ in the port field. Remember, port 22 is for SFTP, the same as SSH. Click the Quickconnect button to connect.

Using the Site Manager
The Site Manager lets you save your login details. Start FileZilla and you’ll see the following:

To open the Site Manager, click the left-most icon in tool bar or go to File >> Site Manager in the menu.

Enter an IP address or domain name for your server in the Host field, and select “SFTP” as your protocol. You’ll enter the root user’s login information, and you’re ready to connect by clicking the “Connect” button or you can click the “OK” button to save and close the dialog box.

If you just saved your settings and the Site Manager is not open, click the Site Manager icon again. From there, you can select the site under the “Select Entry” box, and you just have to click “Connect” to initiate the SFTP connection with your saved settings.

If you see a pop-up that warns of an “Unknown host key,” clicking the “Always trust this host, add this key to the cache” option will prevent this interruption from showing in the future. Once you click “OK” to complete the connection, your FileZilla screen should look like this:

Notice the “Remote site” section on the middle right of the FileZilla screen:

This area in FileZilla is the directory and file listing of the server. Navigate the server’s file structure here, and click “/” to access the top of the folder structure. You should see the “/usr” and “/var” directories, and you can explore the filesystem to delete the files technical support recommended to create space!

Message Log
If you have a problem connecting to your server by FTP or SFTP, the open area below the Quickconnect bar is the Message Log. If you can copy and paste this text into a ticket, you’ll help technical support troubleshoot your connection problems. Below is an example log of a successful FTP session:

Status: Connecting to server.example.com…
Response: fzSftp started
Command: open “root@server.example.com” 22
Command: Trust new Hostkey: Once
Command: Pass: **********
Status: Connected to server.example.com
Status: Retrieving directory listing…
Command: pwd
Response: Current directory is: “/root”
Command: ls
Status: Listing directory /root
Status: Calculating timezone offset of server…
Command: mtime “.lesshst”
Response: 1326387703
Status: Timezone offsets: Server: -21600 seconds. Local: -21600 seconds. Difference: 0 seconds.
Status: Directory listing successful
And here’s an example of a failed connection:

Status: Resolving address of example.com
Status: Connecting to…
Error: Connection timed out
Error: Could not connect to server
Status: Waiting to retry…
Status: Resolving address of example.com
Status: Connecting to…
Error: Connection attempt interrupted by user
If you have any questions, leave them in a comment below. Enjoy your new-found SFTP powers!

With this kind of web site internet hosting you get the rewards of a devoted internet hosting but is more cost-effective than traditional devoted web hosting. In general, as VPS take advantage of the technique of partitioning a physical server personal pc into an array of (digital) servers, each possessing its independent functioning method and application.

Web pages owners who are searching for remarkable characteristics coupled with more desirable command about web site web page administration. The safety and scalability as presented by VPS hosting is unmatched to any other type of net internet hosting. This web site web hosting procedure is cheaper than devoted hosting but presents you a versatile and trusted opportunity with total entry to the root server.

A VPS web hosting gives you the potential to create sandboxes, just one single bodily server with two virtual private servers. You can have two internet sites on the identical server but can make updates to an individual of them without the need of impacting the other in any way. An unique or home business that will want their internet hosting to be better and a whole lot more customizable than shared hosting would preferably advantage from VPS Hosting.

The evolution of digital private servers has arrive of age and the bridge around the economies of shared hosting and big budget committed internet hosting is now a reality.

Creating A Home Media & File Server With Ubuntu

Posted on : 01-04-2012 | By : jake | In : Cheap VPS, Linux VPS

Tags: , ,


For the past two years, I have used FreeNAS 7.x as a file-server. After the development was bought-out, the home-designed service fell by the wayside. The unfortunate consequence is that all of my data was stored on UFS GPT partitions which is does not have native support by either Windows or Linux kernels. The solution I decided upon was to purchase another 2TB hard-drive to use as a storage buffer to copy UFS data and repartition into EXT4 using Ubuntu 11.10’s terminal with a mount command.

After that hiccup, I set out to setup the best server option for my needs.

This HOWTO will give you the BEST home media and file server out there at a cheap (free) cost. It includes SSH2, Remote Desktop, UPNP/DLNA server, SAMBA Shares (Windows file-sharing), VPN server, and the Transmission bit-torrent server. The final piece of the schema is a new toy: Subsonic. This gives you web-based media streaming to watch your content anywhere via a web-browser.

Whilst Ubuntu may be installed on all sorts of hardware specifications, I recommend that you have no less than a 1GHZ dualcore machine (old AMD’s work great!), 2GB of RAM (I have 4GB), 40GB dedicated hard-drive space for Ubuntu, and an internet connection of decent speed (no old dial-up!). I have an AMD dualcore x64, 4GB of RAM, 40GB hard-drive dedicated to Ubuntu, two 2TB hard-drives for storage, and one 500GB hard-drive just for emergencies if space gets low.

Assumption: this guide assumes that you have had some minor, newbie experiences with Ubuntu or Linux at the least. If you haven’t, install Ubuntu and play around and explore the ecosystem for 10 to 20 minutes before continuing.

Assumption: you are not using this server as a router and are not using a firewall on this server because it is behind a home LAN network. If you use it as a router, take note of ports to open with your firewall script and the firewall rules used in the Remote Desktop section.

Let’s start!
Install Ubuntu 11.10. I recommend this being on its own hard-drive. I used a 40GB hard-drive partitioned with EXT4 at / with 32GB of space. The remaining 8GB was partitioned as SWAP space.

Once Ubuntu is installed, reboot into the system and run Software Update to install all of the latest packages. Reboot once more so that we are working from the latest kernel and software suites going forward.

Setting up SSH is very simple. This will give you console access should you be unable to reach the machine with Remote Desktop or like playing in terminal windows!

Open up Terminal.
sudo su

so that we have root control. The password you used when setting up the Ubuntu user account will work for this.
To install the software package type:
sudo apt-get install ssh

If you’re not worried about security, this is a stopping point as SSH is good to go.
Let’s secure the daemon by editing the configuration. Type:
gedit /etc/ssh/sshd_config

to open up the config file.
Find PermitRootLogin and set it to no
Add a line below that variable and type AllowUsers (username) where (username) represents your Ubuntu account’s username.
restart ssh

Remote Desktop
It’s a simple GUI to enable. The downside is that you must use TightVNC or some other VNC viewer for Windows if that is your OS of choice to Remote from. But if you want to have an RDP compliant server running (meaning want to use Windows native Remote Desktop client to connect to the server), complete the following steps.

Open up Terminal.
sudo su

so that we have root control. The password you used when setting up the Ubuntu user account will work for this.
To install the software package type:
sudo apt-get install xrdp

Forward the external WAN port 3389 to the LAN IP address for the server.
For RDP: Make sure to forward any port to the server’s internal port 3389. I use 3401 external port forwarded to the server’s LAN IP at port 3389.

For Ubuntu’s built-in VNC: Make sure to forward port 5900 to the machine. If you want to use JAVA viewer to access the Remote Desktop, you must also forward 5800.

SAMBA Server
Installing and configuring data-sharing which functions with Windows file-sharing. We will set up a share system whereby all LAN computers can navigate, access, and modify the shares. You may wish to do something further to secure SAMBA if your LAN environment isn’t “home” use.

Open up Terminal.
sudo su

so that we have root control. The password you used when setting up the Ubuntu user account will work for this.
To install the software package type:
sudo apt-get install samba smbfs

Edit the configuration. First,
mv /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf.orig

and then
gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf

workgroup = HOME #(Set this to your Windows workgroup)
netbios = HOME #(Set this to your Windows workgroup)
security = share
[Shared Drive] #(Set this to the name you want the shared folder to have)
comment = entire shared drive #(Comments about the shared folder)
path = /mnt/storage2/ #(Path to the shared folder or mount-point of harddrive)
read only = no
guest ok = yes
writable = yes
Alternatively, you may want to have this as a share system where usernames and passwords or another form of security is in place. This isn’t hard to do and many tutorials are available, but will not be a part of this “home” guide.

VPN: Set up a PPTP VPN which is supported by Microsoft and Android
Open up Terminal.
sudo su

so that we have root control. The password you used when setting up the Ubuntu user account will work for this.
To install the software package type:
apt-get install pptpd

gedit /etc/pptpd.conf

# TAG: ppp
# Path to the pppd program, default ‘/usr/sbin/pppd’ on Linux
#ppp /usr/sbin/pppd
# TAG: option
# Specifies the location of the PPP options file.
# By default PPP looks in ‘/etc/ppp/options’
option /etc/ppp/pptpd-options
# TAG: debug
# Turns on (more) debugging to syslog
# TAG: stimeout
# Specifies timeout (in seconds) on starting ctrl connection
# stimeout 10
# TAG: noipparam
# Suppress the passing of the client’s IP address to PPP, which is
# done by default otherwise.
# noipparam
# TAG: logwtmp
# Use wtmp(5) to record client connections and disconnections.
# TAG: bcrelay
# Turns on broadcast relay to clients from interface
bcrelay eth0
# TAG: localip
# TAG: remoteip
# Specifies the local and remote IP address ranges.
# Any addresses work as long as the local machine takes care of the
# routing. But if you want to use MS-Windows networking, you should
# use IP addresses out of the LAN address space and use the proxyarp
# option in the pppd options file, or run bcrelay.
# You can specify single IP addresses seperated by commas or you can
# specify ranges, or both. For example:
# 1. No spaces are permitted between commas or within addresses.
# 2. If you give more IP addresses than MAX_CONNECTIONS, it will
# start at the beginning of the list and go until it gets
# MAX_CONNECTIONS IPs. Others will be ignored.
# 3. No shortcuts in ranges! ie. 234-8 does not mean 234 to 238,
# you must type 234-238 if you mean this.
# 4. If you give a single localIP, that’s ok – all local IPs will
# be set to the given one. You MUST still give at least one remote
# IP for each simultaneous client.
# (Recommended)
# or
gedit /etc/ppp/chap-secrets

# Secrets for authentication using CHAP
# client server secret IP addresses
username pptpd password *
/etc/init.d/pptpd restart

Create a new document in /etc/init.d/ by doing
touch /etc/init.d/ipv4pptpd

Edit the document with
gedit /etc/init.d/ipv4pptpd

and insert the following text:
# Provides: IPV4PPTPD
# Required-Start: $remote_fs $syslog
# Required-Stop: $remote_fs $syslog
# Default-Start: 2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop: 0 1 6
# Short-Description: Start daemon at boot time
# Description: Enable service provided by daemon.

#From debiantutorials.com/installing-and-configuring-pptp-vpn-server-on-lenny/
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
update-rc.d ipv4pptpd defaults

Either reboot the machine so that the new routing tables are used, or type
sh /etc/init.d/ipv4pptpd

to start those tables.

uPNP DLNA MEDIA Server: Mediatomb
Open up Terminal.
sudo su

so that we have root control. The password you used when setting up the Ubuntu user account will work for this.
To install the software package type:
sudo apt-get install mediatomb


Edit the config.xml to set up your own username, disable username requirements, add transcoders, and to enable Playstation3 requirements for playback. This can be done with:
gedit /etc/mediatomb/config.xml

Bittorrent Server: Transmission
Open up Terminal.
sudo su

so that we have root control. The password you used when setting up the Ubuntu user account will work for this.
To install the software package type:
sudo apt-get install transmission-daemon

We cannot modify the settings with this process running. Type
/etc/initi.d/transmission-daemon stop

Subsonic streams almost all video and audio files through a flash-player on a web interface. A small donation to the developers allows you to have access to apps for Android and iProducts. This means native streaming to them as well.

Open up Terminal.
sudo su

so that we have root control. The password you used when setting up the Ubuntu user account will work for this.
To install the prerequisite packages, type:
sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre lame flac faad vorbis-tools ffmpeg

Subsonic is not part of the repositories for Ubuntu. We must download the latest version at http://www.subsonic.org/pages/download.jsp. Download the version for Ubuntu/Debian. Put this file in your /home/username/ directory. Go to that directory in terminal.
dpkg -i filename

where as of this writing, my filename was titled subsonic4.6.deb so I typed
dpkg -i subsonic4.6.deb

Now, go to http://localhost:4040 and sign in and finish setup via the web interface. Do what it instructs in RED. Click the link to secure the admin account.
Afterward, go to Settings and customize the system to your preferences. Make sure to add the media directories to the player.
If you prefer a barebones media server, I suggest checking out VLC. It takes a lot more work to get up and running and its web-interface isn’t as nifty.

Major 10 Benefits of cheap vps Internet hosting

Posted on : 29-01-2012 | By : admin | In : Cheap VPS

Tags: ,


Lets get began with explaining what is a cheap vps. It really is a virtual server (or cheap vps, Virtual Personal Server), which permits to conquer the limitations of traditional hosting configuration. A cheap vps supplies some of the traits of a devoted server for all applications that call for substantial effectiveness, intense configurability and complete isolation, proper of this final service. The virtual server is supplying an independent portion of a helpful server that is safely shared with other shoppers.
A affordable resolution The cheap vps may possibly be an sufficient option for strategy administrator or web developers who don&rsquot want to invest into a devoted server but require to have a thing far more than the uncomplicated hosting. &nbspOn a cheap vps it is doable to host web web pages and databases, test server atmosphere and take pleasure in reduced price world wide web area.

What to assess? Some considerations
1. Contract duration Fairly a handful of occasions companies enter constraints in the acquisition of cheap vps which force you to invest in their service for an imposed, minimum period. For example, the minimum period can be the month to month contract with obligatory payment per 3 months in advance. Nonetheless, an additional versatile remedy is drastically far better, as it permits you to test the virtual server for a quick period and you can assess the functionality and reliability of the program. For this cause we recommend you to pick out a provider that delivers contract with no constraints, and helps make it possible for you to use your cheap vps for couple of days or weeks. two. Activation prices In some cases providers add fixed cost of activation to the month-to-month service charge. In addition, the activation is not usually instant – commonly it takes few days before you can use the cheap vps. Deciding on a provider that will not impose such costs is undoubtedly an advantage, specially when combined with the capacity to have immediate activation to begin testing the surroundings. three.
