Applications / Re: Time sync in VirtualBox guest off by 1 hour
« on: July 16, 2021, 09:34:19 am »
I often set the time sync of the VM to be independent of the host operating system.  To disable time sync:
Use a command line:
"C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage" setextradata "arca_vm" "VBoxInternal/Devices/VMMDev/0/Config/GetHostTimeDisabled" 1

I found an external usb device that can take an iso file and present itself as an external DVD.
The device is based on the idea of the isostick.

I have an isostick, but use it for other operating systems.
The isostick would not work for OS/2 installs.

I found this device works for OS/2 installs - Zalman zm-ve350:

I installed a 120GB ssd in the enclosure.  I copy the ISO file to the device.  Then set the device to be a DVD, and plugged the device into a usb socket.  I was able to install with no problems.

The only complaint I have so far is the poor "jog button" interface to select options on the device.  The manual is sparse and does not explain in detail this "jog button."

I use this device on ArcaOS, FreeBSD, Windows, and various Linux distributions.
I never have to make another DVD disk.

Networking / Re: openvpn configuration?

Is there a possibility to create a tun driver?
I prefer to set up openvpn servers with tun, less traffic and perhaps better security.

Networking / Re: ArcaOS network compatibility with OS/2
« on: March 09, 2018, 03:52:16 pm »
I think there is a bit of confusion here. 
ArcaOS has the Arca Mapper program. 
That program can connect to network shared resources.  The shares can be on Lan Server, Peer Server, Win10, Win8, Win7, etc.  The shares need to use tcpip (sometimes called netbios over tcp).   The older operating systems such as Lan Server, Peer, WFWG, Win98, Win NT, Win2000,  use a less secure connection protocol but you can connect to them all with ArcaOS "out of the box."

And I forgot to mention you can even connect to Apple Mac OS shares,  High Sierra, etc.

ArcaOS does not install the Peer components at install unless you select one of the protocols for netbios. But...  do you really need Peer?  A simple selection of tcp only in the adapters is all you need for most shares using the the ArcaMapper to connect.

There is a file that controls the protocol.  It is:  \mptn\etc\samba\smb.conf

With certain parameters you can allow various types of connections.
The file is used by the Samba server as well as the Arca Mapper.
Here is what you need to connect to a Lan Server or Peer share:
---8<--- snip --- 8<---
# samba client & server file
# smb.conf
; client params
; these two for LAN Server /peer
client lanman auth = yes
client NTLMv2 auth = no

; enable this param for Win10 shares
;client NTLMv2 auth = yes
---8<--- snip --- 8<---

You can also use the Netdrive program to connect to the shared resources.   It is a fantastic drop in replacement for ArcaMapper.   I actually prefer the Netdrive program over the ArcaMapper.  The Netdrive can connect to ftp, scp, local loopback,  in addition to what the ArcaMapper does.  The Netdrive program is not free though.

If you want your ArcaOS to act as a server, you can use the Samba server or install the Peer Server.  The Samba server is a more modern way to go, but you don't have the slick Lan Server GUI, and you will be serving files in a less secure protocol.

Setup & Installation / Re: A tool to setup LAN server on ArcaOS...
« on: March 04, 2018, 12:06:26 pm »
This install tool is very nice.  I used the ArcaOS 5.0.2 new iso mount feature to mount the WSEB iso image to a drive letter.  The LAN server install is now very easy.  This is great!

sure looks like peer networking conflict, what else would be using port 137 ?

Setup & Installation / Re: ArcaOS 5.0.1 on Dual Boot.

Why are you reluctant to wipe the hard drive?
Once Windows 10 has been installed, MS knows that hardware and will install again without a license key.  You can download the Win10 install with their bootable usb stick tool.
The monkeying with partitions, resizing and such is simply asking for trouble.

I encourage you to wipe the hard drive then follow this How-To:

I went to the Bitwise Works online store. Put the Apache Open Office in my cart.  In a few minutes I had an email with a download link.  I think this is the least we can do to support development.

Setup & Installation / Re: eCS install problems on a recent mainboard

Perhaps if you enter the BIOS setup program and enable the CSM (Compatibility Support Module).  It is under the Boot icon in the BIOS setup. Then start the install again.

Applications / Re: new version of openssh ?

Maybe something is missing:

[c:\tmp\ssha]ssh -l testuser sky10
You don't exist, go away!

Applications / new version of openssh ?
« on: August 06, 2016, 02:37:23 pm »
I see a the latest version of OpenSSH is 7.3, released 1 August 2016.  The latest version for OS/2 I can find is at Hobbes  5.3p1.  Is there a newer port available ?

« on: August 02, 2016, 11:08:34 am »
Maybe you are missing one of those required addon dll -   libc  libgcc1  openssl   ?
I used the Arca Noae Pkg Manager to get one of them before I tried rdesktop.

Make sure on the Windows side to enable  RDP server
Right mouse click on "This PC"  |  Properties  |  Remote Setting  | check "Allow remote connections to this computer"
uncheck "allow connections only from computers running Remote Desktop with NLA"

I connect to a wide variety of Windows machines with the rdesktop.  Here is the simple command line I use:

rdesktop -g1358x1018 -a16 -uusername  -0 -5 -z -xRDP5 hostname

Many times I am using rdesktop over a ssh tunnel. I make an ssh connection then using port forwarding to connect to the actual Windows machine

rdesktop -g1358x1018 -a16 -uusername  -0 -5 -z -xRDP5 localhost:3389

That was a great idea! 
The program works well.

Yes, I am aware of vnc.
It would be impractical to add a vnc server to each windows host I need to work on.
