    [all variants] Forward VPN to another client

    OK, so this is a bit tricky to explain. Bear with me. :D
    I have a VPN service which I connect to with a Virtual Machine (both the host and the guest are Ubuntu 12.04.1). This arrangement all works...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Make upstart job wait for VirtualBox to end gracefully

    Ah yes, I see now. This is the post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=11283453&postcount=28. Very handy.

  5. [SOLVED] Re: Make upstart job wait for VirtualBox to end gracefully

    Having said that, the init.d script does work perfectly. Thanks!
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Make upstart job wait for VirtualBox to end gracefully

    Hmm, I really would have preferred to use upstart - it's much more user-friendly. Would this be a bug possibly? Even if I make the pre-stop command the VBoxManage savestate command, it will save the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Inhibit Shutdown during Remote Session

    After doing some experiments, I found that if a user is logged in through SSH the computer is inhibited from shutdown - just as it is for an actual login. This is good to know, I can have the users...

    I am experimenting with Precise on my local fileserver (i.e., it runs Ubuntu Server). Under 10.04, I had an xorg.conf that let me use the dummy video driver with a VNC set-up so that to computer...

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Oneiric internet connection mysteriously failed

    Yeah, setting Network Manager to use "DHCP (Addresses Only)" and manually setting the DNS to use OpenDNS has fixed the issue. So then it's an issue with my crappy router not doing DNS properly (which...

    [ubuntu] Re: Natty EXT-4 filesystem errors

    I found that it wasn't a Natty-specific issue. Despite my previous comments, it did occur in Lucid too. I'm pretty sure it was because of a slightly corrupted file that Transmission was trying to...
