comment How to access the terminal in Ubuntu GUI without a mouse
@Matt been there before. Without any output though, I foresee a frustrating experience. Some alternatives to trying to configure your machine without any feedback: you could remove the hard drive and configure the wifi and ssh then replace it, or install an os on a flash drive with ssh and wifi set up then access the machine via this os with ssh and write the configurations to the internal hdd.

comment Multiple IPs on Multiple NICs same subnet
Where is your initial connection(s) to the Internet? Which interface(s)? What are configuration details for such interface(s).

comment Multiple IPs on Multiple NICs same subnet
I'm guessing you are statically assigning your IP addresses, no? If you are, wouldn't you agree that posting the contents of /etc/network/interfaces is more informative than the output of ifconfig? I'd like to see how you actually have it manually configured.

comment Would like to manage a DSL and Satellite Internet Connection
You may have better luck finding an answer to this question on Server Fault. You could grab an old PC (with multiple NIC's) and install PFSense and set up rules to route certain types of traffic out certain ports. Any solution I imaging would be hard working remotely.

Why are you operating in the dark like that? Can you not access this system via SSH?

comment Is it possible to hot-swap java code between two separate computers?
What do you mean synced? Are you sure that posting here is proper? Maybe you should post this question to stack overflow.

comment Building a home router on a laptop
I've not previously use PFSense, although I plan to, but I have made a router out of a laptop before using the wireless and wired interfaces with iptables. I don't see why PF, which I'm guessing is more powerful, would not be able route packets from the built in iface to the addition usb one - and vise versa.

comment Preserve permissions on samba shared files when overwriting
@Pumbaa80 I see you are trying to hack the way Linux and Samba handles permissions. You probably will want to look into ACL's. With them you should be able to define permission masks per user. Thus, you log into samba with user A and read/write with permissions 755, and as user B read/write with 644.

comment Preserve permissions on samba shared files when overwriting
If your Unix/Linux user is writing files as 755, and you logon to the Samba server as your Unix/Linux user, than files you create/edit should theoretically be written with the 755 permissions. Have you tried this?

comment Can't get samba to see other PCs in Kubuntu 10.04 (Lucid)
I'd say if one is not sure what they are doing it is better to edit smb.conf via swat. Swat will make sure the configuration file is syntactically correct and minimizes misconfiguration.

comment MacBook Air startup disk not found, but verified
@Fresheyeball can you boot into the partition manually? Hold down alt at boot (before you see the apple), and then select your HD to boot from?

First things first. Can you ping each computer from the other?

comment How to change local IP to domain name so a host can access a VM?
What do you mean "access/map?" You mentioned you are using a browser, are you trying to connect to a Web server you have installed?

@Fresheyeball click on the hard drive (the one you boot from) and look at the bottom of disk utility where the info on the disk is listed. Here's a [link]picture(cosmicpi.zapto.org/pub/docs/Screen_Shoot.png)
