Postfix Virtual Hosting With LDAP Backend & Dovecot (IMAP/POP3) On Ubuntu 8.04

Post date: August 3, 2008, 10:08 Category: Installing Views: 3012 Comments
Tutorial quote: I have been running with a MySQL backend for virtual hosting for some time, but when I discovered Phamm and the added FTP feature I decided to switch to LDAP as backend for Postfix with virtual hosting. In view of the fact that the installation and configuration guide of Phamm is lacking some basic information it took me quite some time to put it all together and get it working. Piecing it all together was not simple so I would like to share how I configured it and got it all working toghether.

Get your wireless card working in Ubuntu

Post date: June 3, 2006, 11:06 Category: Network Views: 4535 Comments
Tutorial quote: Okay so you have a wireless card that shows up in ubuntu but doesnt connect to any wireless network?

The reason the card shows up but doesnt work is because ubuntu is distributed with its driver (so it can recognize it) but not with its firmware (so it can USE it) for legal reasons.

However you can take the firmware out of the windows drivers and put them into ubuntu and make the card work
Follow these steps to get your wireless card working under ubuntu dapper 6.06

Post date: June 4, 2006, 17:06 Category: Network Views: 5444 Comments
Tutorial quote: Getting wireless networking working with the ndiswrapper driver is fairly straightfoward if your card has an associated Windows driver. Here we'll look at getting wireless networking working for a Dell Inspiron 1300, you should be able to follow the recipe for most other wireless networking cards which are supported ndiswrapper.

ndiswrapper is a collection of utilities which essentially allows you to load and run a network card driver written for Microsoft Windows upon your Linux kernel. This means that a card which isn't supported natively may be used indirectly.

Installing FreeNX Server on SUSE 10

Post date: December 27, 2005, 15:12 Category: Network Views: 7191 Comments
Tutorial quote: Not long ago, I reviewed SUSE Linux 10 and found that they had included the latest version of FreeNX (a free version of NoMachine's NX Server) on the installation media. I'd never really tried FreeNX at that point but had heard some good things about it, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Well, once it was installed and working I have to say I was immediately impressed by how simple it was to setup and how well (read: fast) it performed over a WAN connection. I was literally able to get my desktop at home from anywhere else in the world and get near-local speed. Normally, working on a remote system is alright until you need to type in any shape or form. There was almost no delay from the time I'd press a key to the time it would show up on the screen. This is what sold me on FreeNX and prompted me to offer to write a HOWTO on the topic. I was overwhelmed with email from our readers asking that I write it... so here we are!

Gnu Queue: Linux Clustering Made Easy

Post date: December 22, 2005, 19:12 Category: System Views: 2977 Comments
Tutorial quote: GNU Queue makes it easy to cluster Linux workstations. If you already know how to control jobs running on your local machine, you already know how to control remote jobs using GNU Queue. You don't even need special privileges to install and run GNU Queue on your cluster--anyone can do it. Once you've discovered how incredibly easy it is to cluster Linux environments with GNU Queue, you'll wonder why organizations continue to spend so much money on comparatively hard-to-cluster Windows NT environments.
