    [ubuntu] Re: Alternate DNS Servers

    That depends on how your router works, and whether you can enter static nameservers at all with whatever access method you are using.

    [ubuntu] Re: best way to transfer files ?!?

    The easiest way to share files with a Windows machine is to configure Samba, alos known as Windows file sharing.
    This should be doable right from the menus.

    Just disable their shell and run the SSH tunnel as their login command.
  6. Re: Turning a computer into a network drive help[

    Set up either Samba or NFS; both are pretty easy, but the advantage of Samba is that you can use it from Windows as well.

    [ubuntu] Re: mounting / recognising hard drives

    It lists two drives, and you say you have one SATA drive; it follows that one of them is the IDE drive.
    Since Ubuntu boots from it, it's the first one.

    [ubuntu] Re: Using a server as a network switch

    You can bridge them, so they logically belong to the same network and/or have no IP of their own.


    That is also possible.

    Re: is setting up your own home dns server legal?

    Trust me, you really, seriously don't.

    Your lack of understanding of what an ISP is, or, indeed, what "the internet" is, is staggering beyond ken.

    That's sort of the point I am making, yes.

    [ubuntu] Re: Need beginner's help with port assignment

    The default port for the HTTP protocol is 80, and this is hardcoded in all browsers in existence.
    So if the application cannot run on port 80 (why?) then you must specify the port in the URL.

    [other] Re: Auto login help

    Perhaps if you explain WHY you need a server system to auto-logon a user at a console, we can tell you how to avoid that.
    Auto-logon on a server system is the epitome of insecurity.
