Connecting server to the desktop

Posted 03 April 2013 - 04:27 PM

Greetings;

I am eager to find out if anyone has been using Ubuntu12.10 server (64 bit) with Ubuntu12.10 Desktop (32). I have been looking for a way to connect the server to the desktop or access it from the desktop as both of them are on VBox and they have their own sets of mem/storage pools.

Any tip would be appreciated.

Kind regards

Nitewalkr.

NOTE: I couldnt find an appropriate section to ask this because Linux section is I believe the tutorial section only and not for asking questions. If you (Admins / Mods) find this thread to be in an inappropriate section, please move it to the appropriate section.

Thanks.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Typically something like putty can be used to connect into a machine, or vncviewer to remote into it.

Examples:

If they are virtual machines you'll need to setup a virtual network and make sure everyone has an IP on the network, can ping each other, etc.

Ahh, thanks.

The reason I asked was because I partitioned the hdd and spare 30 gigs for both desktop and the server (drive E:/) yet none of them seem to be using it and I can not find the root of the storage pan of neither of them.

Like if you know, if you go to the windows commandline, it would show c:/user/doc/filesys/etc. The Root would be the C:/

on the ubuntu server guide it asks you to go to etc/apt/apt.conf.d/....???

These type of commands I have been trying to get in to see what packages are installed and where. So I would atleast have an idea of how it is working with storage, which packages to install and where, how to organize and optimize the file system.

If its all server specific, then I would want to know how to assign the partitioned storage to the desktop so that atleast I would be at ease in terms of knowing regarding what storage pans are being used by desktop.

it would be good to know which storage is being used for servers as well. =\

EDIT: by server specific I mean that there is no way of getting in to root in ubuntu servers.
EDIT2: I will keep on experimenting with both on Vbox, but if anyone would like to add a tip to this thread, that would be great, thanks.

I am not following - did you install these on virtual machines, or not?

Over all it sounds like you need to learn how the file structure of linux is setup.
Example:

Finding package locations.

I did install both on the Virtual Machine, I am trying to understand the file structure of the linux, especially where to find the root directories, and / or how to assign a hdd to it. You are understanding me correctly sir. =\
