Debian Squeeze Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

Debian Squeeze Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Debian Squeeze and how to configure it to share files over the SMB protocol as well as how to add users. Samba is configured as a standalone server, not as a domain controller. In the resulting setup, every user has his own home directory accessible via the SMB protocol and all users have a shared directory with read-/write access.

Debian Squeeze, Squid, Kerberos/LDAP Authentication, Active Directory Integration And Cyfin Reporter

Debian Squeeze, Squid, Kerberos/LDAP Authentication, Active Directory Integration And Cyfin Reporter

This document covers setup of a Squid Proxy which will seamlessly integrate with Active Directory for authentication using Kerberos with LDAP as a backup for users not authenticated via Kerberos. Authorisation is managed by Groups in Active Directory. This is especially useful for Windows 7 clients which no longer support NTLMv2 without changing the local computer policy. It is capable of using white lists and black lists for site access and restrictions.

How To Save Traffic With nginx's HttpGzipModule (Debian Squeeze)

How To Save Traffic With nginx's HttpGzipModule (Debian Squeeze)

In this tutorial I will describe how to configure HttpGzipModule on an nginx web server (on Debian Squeeze). HttpGzipModule allows nginx to compress files and deliver them to clients (e.g. browsers) that can handle compressed content which most modern browsers do. With HttpGzipModule, you can compress HTML, CSS, Javascript, text or XML files to approx. 20 - 30% of their original sizes, thus saving you server traffic and making your modem users happier.

How To Set Up MySQL Database Replication With SSL Encryption On Debian Squeeze

How To Set Up MySQL Database Replication With SSL Encryption On Debian Squeeze

This tutorial describes how to set up database replication in MySQL using an SSL connection for encryption (to make it impossible for hackers to sniff out passwords and data transferred between the master and slave). MySQL replication allows you to have an exact copy of a database from a master server on another server (slave), and all updates to the database on the master server are immediately replicated to the database on the slave server so that both databases are in sync. This is not a backup policy because an accidentally issued DELETE command will also be carried out on the slave; but replication can help protect against hardware failures though.

VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.0 On A Headless Debian Squeeze Server

VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.0 On A Headless Debian Squeeze Server

This guide explains how you can run virtual machines with VirtualBox 4.0 on a headless Debian Squeeze server. Normally you use the VirtualBox GUI to manage your virtual machines, but a server does not have a desktop environment. Fortunately, VirtualBox comes with a tool called VBoxHeadless that allows you to connect to the virtual machines over a remote desktop connection, so there's no need for the VirtualBox GUI.

Setting Up A Spam-Proof Home Email Server (The Somewhat Alternate Way) (Debian Squeeze)

Setting Up A Spam-Proof Home Email Server (The Somewhat Alternate Way) (Debian Squeeze)

Email spam is a huge problem. I have found for myself quite a simple solution, however it'll take some time to "migrate" completely over to it. The solution is to create a unique email address everytime I have to give an email address to someone else or to some website to sign up. If I want an account at twitter, I'd use "www.twitter.com@MYDOMAIN.COM". For webbased services, I use the full domain name incl. subdomain (www) on the left of the @ (some poorly designed websites do not recognizes the www. as valid email address, for those I just leave it away).
