  1. Hello, I have been at this for a while now, but I have finally hit a brick wall I cant pass. I'm trying to install Grub 2 on a flash drive. I did not like the idea of chain loading Grub1 -> Grub2, so I installed only Grub 2 [v1.99] from gnu.org. My issue is that I cannot set a custom menu. I read that I needed to run update-grub to apply the menu, but that did jack. It just said it could not find a device for /. I looked around the net more & saw there was a patch that I could apply to the source code, but the SVN was down. Now I am stuck. Any solutions? Thanks for reading.
  2. After a bunch of Googleing, I think I am the only one writing about this problem. [probably not] I'm on Windows, so maybe its not a prob for Linux users, but I cannot get anything to read the stdout of ngrep. I tried piping it to grep, & tried writing a program to read from stdout. Neither worked. Example of no pipe: C:\Users\RandomClown>ngrep -lq -d 2 chat interface: \Device\NPF_{2FB734B8-ABFC-4779-A9DF-CD35123692B0} ( match: chat T -> [AP] ...?.C...o.......crowd.chat......p...testing.. ...Randomclownx. If I pipe the results to anything, I get nothing. Example of searching for the letter "a": C:\Users\RandomClown>ngrep -lq -d 2 chat | grep a That should at least show the interface device line. I am confused to why I cant read from stdout Anyone know about this prob?
  3. Ok, so the update for OpenVPN DID fix my problem. W00T! ..but I have an issue which probably could be solved with Google...cept not quite sure what to search for from my log. - I updated OpenVPN on all computers - Port forwarded 1194 UDP - Made sure OpenVPN is allowed in firewall - Created the VPN certificates - Set up server config file - Ran the server's VPN [icon is green] - Gave the client certs to the intended clients - Set up the client config files - Ran OpenVPN GUI [icon is yellow] It would not connect. I use my domain name to connect. I know the address is up to date since I am remotely controlling it right now. I'm using my phone's tether, so there should not be anything blocking it. ============== Log: The client log window shows this when I attempt to connect: Wed Jul 20 18:12:17 2011 OpenVPN 2.2.1 Win32-MSVC++ [SSL] [LZO2] built on Jul 1 2011 Wed Jul 20 18:12:17 2011 NOTE: OpenVPN 2.1 requires '--script-security 2' or higher to call user-defined scripts or executables Wed Jul 20 18:12:18 2011 LZO compression initialized Wed Jul 20 18:12:18 2011 Control Channel MTU parms [ L:1574 D:138 EF:38 EB:0 ET:0 EL:0 ] Wed Jul 20 18:12:18 2011 Socket Buffers: R=[8192->8192] S=[8192->8192] Wed Jul 20 18:12:18 2011 Data Channel MTU parms [ L:1574 D:1450 EF:42 EB:135 ET:32 EL:0 AF:3/1 ] Wed Jul 20 18:12:18 2011 Local Options hash (VER=V4): 'd79ca330' Wed Jul 20 18:12:18 2011 Expected Remote Options hash (VER=V4): 'f7df56b8' Wed Jul 20 18:12:18 2011 UDPv4 link local: [undef] Wed Jul 20 18:12:18 2011 UDPv4 link remote: **IP**:**Port** After a while of waiting, it says: Wed Jul 20 18:13:19 2011 TLS Error: TLS key negotiation failed to occur within 60 seconds (check your network connectivity) Wed Jul 20 18:13:19 2011 TLS Error: TLS handshake failed Wed Jul 20 18:13:19 2011 TCP/UDP: Closing socket Wed Jul 20 18:13:19 2011 SIGUSR1[soft,tls-error] received, process restarting Wed Jul 20 18:13:19 2011 Restart pause, 2 second(s) ============== Any ideas? My attempt at Google only revealed the things I thought of. Thanks for reading.
  4. WAIT WAIT WAIT OpenVPN JUST released an update yesterday, which updates the tools I had issues with. Wow, what a coincidence. I'll try again & come back.
  5. Hello everyone, I remember way back when, Hak5 talked about Adito as a good VPN tool. ...Well, now is the future, & it wont start on Windows. It basically does nothing after I configure it like before. I loved it for its features, but I need to part with it because the newest version is the same version they introduced to us. [its long dead] ============== VPN tools I tried: - Adito: It is not stable & wont even start on a clean install of windows. - OpenVPN: The tools to set up certs seems to have internal issue. - Window's built in: Client cannot reach the VPN server. ============== Anyone have a recommendation for something thats actually alive? I would prefer to use Window's built in VPN since its the most simple way to do it, but no idea why it wont work. Info on my setup for Windows built in: - Both OS = Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit - I have a CrapWire, I mean a 2Wire modem/router. - I set up one side to accept a VPN connection - Forwarded 1723 & 443 - Set up client side to connect to the server address I tried it by clicking the network icon in the tray & clicking on the connection under "Dial-up and VPN", but it could not reach the server. I get the feeling my router is just crap.
  6. I turned off the search service. ;) Its just a blank list.
  7. Interesting. Does anyone know how to implement a MicroSD card instead of SD? I dont want to naively try anything crazy & break stuff. :D
  8. Thanks! Yeah, I wanted another internal USB so I can plug in bluetooth. Got the idea from that episode, except I never looked it up till recently.
  9. Hai! I have no idea what this thing is called. I Googled up the words I saw on the wire, but that didnt help. Thanks
  10. Well I stuck with AD since it works for computers in the network. No access from outside the network, so I assume its safe. :D What I did with it was setup user accounts of all my friends. I stuck with the original accounts each PC had, while making programs like VNC or Adito use AD ------------ As for the book, Holy crap, that sounds long! I dont need to master server or anything, I really just wanted to setup AD for my programs. I will keep that link bookmarked, in case I do go deeper into server. Thanks. ======= While I am here, can someone help with another prob? Having this setup, I can no longer connect to my friends' subdomains. My domain is horc.me & I gave a subdomain to my friend so I dont have to keep asking for an IP if if it changes. [bTW domain uses afraid.org] I think after installing these server roles, PCs in the network try to look for a machine in the same network, rather than using the Forwarders I specified. Not sure if I explained well.
  11. I see how setting up stuff on Server can be annoying. Ive pretty much given up now. Guess Ill stick with manually controlling accounts.
  12. The reason I wanted to do this is because I have setup on like 3 computers a set of accounts that some programs intergrate & use as login information. I wanted an easier-way to manage the accounts than to walk up to each machine & change things, & to make it even easier, if I am on vacation away from home, I can use a tool to config the accounts. AD works for that right? ======= As for what my setup is, maybe I did mess up. I reverted the server to a previous state, so I can make a recording of what I did. I will edit the video & post it. ======= Now I forwarded the ports. :D =======
  13. Hai! I am new to server 2008 & Active Directory. Me & a friend have been trying to setup AD & have it so we can also remotely manage it [RSAT]. We followed a few online guides & did what was told, but server=fail. We definitely did stuff wrong. I am not sure where to start, so I will give an error my friend copied down: Note: This information is intended for a network administrator. If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:\Windows\debug\dcdiag.txt. The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "horc.me": The error was: "DNS name does not exist." (error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR) The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.horc.me Common causes of this error include the following: - The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a AD DC is added to a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses: - One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone: horc.me me . (the root zone) Can someone help? :( Thanks for reading
