    VPNs

    I'm currently test-driving CyberGhost VPN on both my Mac and Windows machines. The pricing is excellent and the reviews were positive. It's #4 on Tom's Hardware list of the best VPNs. However, I'm noticing two issues that are making me a little crazy, or crazier than normal. Frequently, like several times and hour, I'll get a notification that the server can't be reached. Yet switching to a different wireless network resolves the issue, which leads me to believe it's not a server issue but rather that it's rendering the network it was using useless, and now it need another network. Could be a port issue or...? And redirects never load. At times even direct links have problems, but trying to open a linked page from within a website always fails. So are these issues unique to CyberGhost or are they fundamental issues with modern VPNs? I understand the concept of VPNs but have always shied away from using them, opting instead for safe browsing practices and a good AV app. But now that I'm no longer working and will be connecting from restaurants and coffee shops (when we're once again able to do that) I thought I'd look into VPNs. Most reviews are unreliable, being more paid advertisements than honest reviews. I want one that works on both platforms I use, doesn't log at all, and offers a good number of servers and countries. I'm only using it on my iPhone, laptops, and tablets. So what are you all using or would recommend? Any suggestions on settings to change to improve performance?
  2. Now that my new system is up and running and seems to be doing quite well, I still have my old system sitting on a shelf. Although it's officially retired, it still has usable life left in it so I was thinking of reformatting and trying new things. 1 - Does anybody have any experience with Zorin OS? A coworker said I might want to check it out since I have experience with the Ubuntu family. 2 - Any distros that are good with folder sharing with Windows? I previously used Xubuntu and I could access Windows shares from Linux but it didn't work so well trying to access shares in Linux from Windows. It's no loss if something goes wrong. I'm just tinkering with an old system that'll have no important data on it.
  3. Trying to google something but not sure what it is I need to google. SAMBA has been working great, no issues. A short time ago I ran updates on the server. Re-booted due to a kernel update. I was able to SSH into the server no issues. But when I try mounting the share via cifs like I always do I get the following [root@archbox ichase]# mount -t cifs //192.168.X.XX/storage /mnt -o username=ian Password for ian@//192.168.X.XX/storage: Unable to find suitable address. So I went into Webmin and notice SAMBA was not running. When I click on Start SAMBA Server I get an error: So I tried using systemctl to enable it, [root@homeserver pkg]# systemctl enable samba.service Failed to issue method call: No such file or directory I then checked status and received the following: [root@homeserver pkg]# systemctl status samba samba.service Loaded: error (Reason: No such file or directory) Active: inactive (dead) Feb 02 18:59:27 homeserver smbd[344]: [2013/02/02 18:59:27.980007, 0] smbd/password.c:731(authorise_login) Feb 02 18:59:27 homeserver smbd[344]: authorise_login: rejected invalid user nobody Feb 02 19:14:28 homeserver smbd[356]: [2013/02/02 19:14:28.970109, 0] smbd/password.c:731(authorise_login) Feb 02 19:14:28 homeserver smbd[356]: authorise_login: rejected invalid user nobody Feb 02 19:14:28 homeserver smbd[356]: [2013/02/02 19:14:28.978471, 0] smbd/password.c:731(authorise_login) Feb 02 19:14:28 homeserver smbd[356]: authorise_login: rejected invalid user nobody Feb 02 19:14:29 homeserver smbd[356]: [2013/02/02 19:14:29.045987, 0] smbd/password.c:731(authorise_login) Feb 02 19:14:29 homeserver smbd[356]: authorise_login: rejected invalid user nobody Feb 02 19:14:29 homeserver smbd[356]: [2013/02/02 19:14:29.053524, 0] smbd/password.c:731(authorise_login) Feb 02 19:14:29 homeserver smbd[356]: authorise_login: rejected invalid user nobody Feb 02 22:35:56 homeserver systemd[1]: samba.service: control process exited, code=exited status=203 Feb 02 22:35:56 homeserver systemd[1]: Stopped LEGACY unit for "samba" rc script. Feb 02 22:35:56 homeserver systemd[1]: Unit samba.service entered failed state Windows no longer even sees Homeserver either. Not sure what package upload caused the issue. I believe smbclient was updated so I tried downgrading to the last package with no evail. Also, I did reboot the server twice thinking something got stuck. Yes, I can re-image the server and get everything back up and running but I would rather know what the issue is and why it happened and how to fix it. Thanks, Ian Edit: Just wanted to add more info. I was able to enable nmbd.service via systemctl which showed samba as started in webmin, still unable to mount the storage on the server with the same error and still don't see it via Windows. Clicking on restart SAMBA via webmin resulted in the same error as above. I was looking at this thread but it did not help much: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=147896
  4. Greetings all, I was currious as to the best way to scan the IP addresses of devices on my network. I plan on installing Arch Linux ARM on the Rasberry Pi. I have read in the wiki that you can perform the full installation via Secure Shell and would connect to the default hostname for Arch ARM: ssh -p 22 alarmpi@192.168.0.XXX" With 22 being the default port for SSH hopefully that will work, but in the intram, what will be the best way via my laptop to scan for the IP address dhcp gives to the R-Pi upon connecting the ethernet cable? I know it will be in the 192.168.0.XXX range. Is there a recommended "Network scanner" in the arch repos that is suggested to use? Hopeing to give this a run this weekend and read that once you turn the R-Pi on with the ARch ARM Image on the sd card, that everything can be done via secure shell so that is definitely the route I want to go. Don't feel like hooking up a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Maybe later on if I add a gui but for now, just want to be able to get a working Arch Linux install up and running on it. Thanks as always for your suggestions, guidance, and education Ian
  5. Just an opinion question. I know that net-tools in Arch Linux is depricated and the recommended alternative is iproute2. But with a basic network and not to mention being used to using command lines such as ifconfig, is installing net-tools still sufficiant? Like I said, this is just an opinion question. Kinda like the Grub Legacy and Grub2 question I am sure it all comes down to personal preference.
