man, i hate katello
it doesn't seem to update repo metadata correctly
so then i have to do it manually and it takes a very long time
and it puts packages in so many places i don't even know if i am updating in the right location

anyone have suggestions/guidelines for keeping the clock accurate in a win7 vm running under kvm/qemu on centos7? i tried "bcdedit /set USEPLATFORMCLOCK on" and rebooting guest and that didnt help...
log-of-danofsatx
jsharper: set the host up as an NTP server, and point the W7 VM to it for time.
jsharper
w7 has a horrible ntp client builtin :) it only syncs periodically.. so clock drifts between syncs

Hello
Digipeng
I am trying to setup a bind-chroot server and don't know what to do after I install them from yum.
some instructions want me to use default templates(bad idea security wise), and disable selinux(another bad idea). some have generate a dns key others don't
Oh I have centos 7
oh I found the bind admistrative resorce manuanl(arm). I think that will help
what would the working directory be in a chroot setup?
oh man /var/named/chroot/var/tmp I had /var/tmp on a different directory. I should of just did /var
and /var/tmp
yay
different partition

can someone provide me with instructions on how to browse a windows shared drive? I don't want to permanently mount it using fstab but i do want to mount it. i'm following instructions here: http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/WindowsShares
basically i have tried mounting and it doesn't work.
i'm using cli
B_rake
what happens when you try to mount it?
daspence
B_rake: it returns with an error code of = -115
B_rake: I try to run mount --verbose -t cifs //192.168.1.1/user/folder -o credentials="/etc/credentials.txt",port1000
B_rake: error connecting to socket
B_rake
Is 115 the only thing that is returned from that command?
daspence
other than cannot connect to socket, that is the only error
B_rake
you are also not specifying a local mount point
daspence
i know, i do in the actual command
B_rake
aw, kk, is that the only thing missing from the command you pasted?
TrevorH
what is port1000?
daspence
B_rake: TrevorH this is the code i'm running to mount: http://termbin.com/isoc
TrevorH
why are you specifying port=?
daspence
just to ensure i can connect
not sure if it was needed or not
TrevorH
it isn't and it's probably the cause of your error
B_rake
is 192.168.1.1 not your gateway?
TrevorH
unless you happen to know that your windows server is listening on a non-standard port of 9040 instead of the default of 443
daspence
TrevorH: here's the error code B_rake http://termbin.com/ufuy I typed this out because i have no way of actually copying the error since when I use c-a [ in screen the error goes away. 192.168.1.109 is the IP i'm wirelessly on with my linksys router. 192.168.254.254 is in my house and is my dsl modem (from which my router's IP can be found on 192.168.254.2 while my box is 254.5)
TrevorH
is that message from the command with or without port=9040?
daspence
with port 9040
same error with 443
TrevorH
leave port= off altogether
daspence
same error with no port specified
didn't include it in the command
is it necessary to have //192.168.1.109/\user/\ (escaping the \\ ?)
         

B_rake
and you verified that 192.168.1.1 is the windows box's IP?
daspence
192.168.1.109, yes
both have same domain name
is there anything I can run to see if my computer is even detecting the other computer?
TrevorH
haev you allowed remote connections on the windows box?
daspence
i know i can run netstat -natucp
pj
TrevorH: pastebin.c.o is down, who is the person that needs to be informed?
B_rake
Can you ping the other box?
daspence
TrevorH: I have, here's my netstat on linux: http://termbin.com/gg4o
TrevorH
that looks like firewall
or wrong ip
B_rake
did you say your box IP is 192.168.254.5?
If so, you'd want to change your mount to use that IP instead of 192.168.1.1
daspence
The windows box is 192.168.1.109, the linux is 254.5
sorry about that
TrevorH
what's between them?
daspence
i ran netstat -a using port 9040 and my centos isn't hitting my windows box.
i don't see any connections for that port.
TrevorH
what is this insistence on using port 9040?
daspence
because i don't know if my two boxes are communicating with each other and I don't know how else to check :/
i've already got open 443 connections on my windows box
TrevorH
I don't know where you got 9040 from but it's not a port that I've ever heard of that's used by anything
fenrus02
tor and trojans use that port.
TrevorH
that should be port 445
fenrus02
not windows
TrevorH
you should not need to specify port at all. Ever.
daspence
it's honestly a random port i came up with
TrevorH
forget using port entirely
fenrus02
dont make up random ports.
you will only make your life difficult.
TrevorH
you can't just pick a port and hope that something might be listening on it
how do packets get from your 192.168.1 network to your 192.168.254 network?
can you ping from one to the other and vice versa?>
daspence
i can confirm ping from 192.168.1.109 to 192.168.254.5 (centos box) however, cannot ping 1.109 from the linux box
TrevorH
so you can ping linux from windows but not the other way around?
daspence
that's right.
TrevorH
check your windows firewall to see if 192.168.254.x is a trusted network
this all looks like windows firewall to me
daspence
currently i have my dsl line coming in and plugging into the modem, then my linux box plugs into that modem (issue with ports on my wireless router), wireless router plugs into one of the 4 ports on the dsl modem.
that's what i'm thinking, and i opened port 9040 (going to remove that now)
how do y'all usually select port numbers?
TrevorH
usually you do not, a programmer or committee does
theskillwithin
fu*k windows, makes everything so hard
centbot
Please keep language family-friendly while in this channel if you could be so kind. Thank you, we appreciate it.
theskillwithin
sorry centbot
daspence
TrevorH: under File and Printer Sharing (SMB-In) any local IP; remote ip, any local subnet; direction, inbound; profile, private;
i think i'll remove this and set up my own rule
well
would you look at that
the smb-in is not enabled
TrevorH
when you can ping windows from linux, move to the next step and run `nmblookup -A 192.168.1.109` on your linux box
when that responds with an answer then move on to your mount
