Networking :: Access A PC In A Subnet From The Internet


So supposing I have a LAN with 2 PCs with subnet IPs of 192.168.2.2 and .3 (router being .1) and I'd like to connect to one of them for file sharing using sftp from anywhere on the public Web. Now a static IP is really useful in this case I understand, but lets just say I know the public IP address of my LAN at any given point. From outside if I know my public IP?

This is assuming all computers use Ubuntu.

Security&Antivirus :: Corrupted Files Or Virus?


Yesterday I discovered what may be a virus on my thumb drive. Or it could just be corrupted files, but I don't know which. Why do I think its a virus?

1) Whenever I mess with them (e. g. Attempting to copy or move them [which fails] or going in to the folder) causes my thumb drive to go into read-only mode.

2) Their combined file size is over 1 terabyte, although my thumb drive only holds 16 GB 3) Their are hidden folders that I can only see on Windows I found them in the files folder of a web page (two actually) that I saved to my computer. I could probably delete them, This virus(?) does not appear to be affecting Ubuntu.

BSOD & Debug :: Blue Screen Crash When Viewing Network Folders


I am setting up a ubuntu server on an old box. I need to clear my login credentials frequently to log into the same share with a different username/password. After I have opened a network share i'll open a console and use the net view command to clear out my session.

When I open up the network view and attempt to re-open the previous network share, windows 7 will blue screen and reboot before I can see what it says. The error states something about hardware.

Performance :: Start Menu Messed Up, Explorer.exe Needs To Be Restarted


I'm having a problem with Vista (a clean install) on an HP xw4300 with 1.5 GB Ram. Video cards are FireGL V3100 and Radeon X1300 (both using WDDM drivers). I'm currently using 3 monitors.

Periodically (4-5 times a day), the start menu crashes and becomes distorted and disfunctional. The only way to resolve this problem, when it occurs, is to restart the Explorer.exe process. While this does resolve the issue for some period of time, it is becoming quite annoying.
