Windows 7 - Teamspeak 3 Server

Download the Server-Files from teamspeak homepage and unpack the package in any directory you want.

Start the ts3server_win32.exe

Please note the username and password!

Connect via the teamspeak3-client to your server, just with entering "localhost" as Ip- dress.

To get admin-rights on your server you have to open the /log directory and to search in the text-file for "token". Copy it and go on "rights -> enter token" in your client and paste the token. Now you are having admin-rights and now you are able to change your server.

For ports look at /doc/server_quickstart

Maybe you should make a dyndns-account and search for a dyndns-updater, because you haven't to impart your always changing ip-adress.

Have fun with your TS3-Server

Windows 7 - problems with the desktop window manager

I had the following problem:
For any reason my desktop window manager was broken. 
This entailed that the task strip and the window strip wasn't transparent anymore, also some other Windows Aero functions were broken. I searched for a long time in the internet, to find a solution, but I didn't find one. But now, I found a solution on myself: 

If you are having the same problem, you only have to lie in the Windows7-DVD in the disk drive. Then wait for the autostart of "setup.exe". Then follow the setup until you have the choice to "upgrade" or to "reinstall" Windows7. Here you take "upgrade". This could last until an hour, but you won't have to reinstall all of your programms and desktop-icons. When the setup has finished and you rebooted your computer, the aero effects should work again, but now you're not allowed anymore to run  the "Windows-achievement index", because if you will do that, your desktop window manager will be broken again!

Linux - Share a complete hard disk with Samba on a Ubuntu Server

To share a whole hard disk with Samba is very easy:

1) Login as root:
sudo -s

2) We have to change the fstab-file, that the hard disk will be mounted right on boot:
nano /etc/fstab

You have to write the following in the fstab-file:
/dev/sdb /media/sdb auto umask=0000,rw,user,auto,exec 0 0  

In my case, we say that, "sdb" is the name of the harddisk.

3) Now we have to change the "smb.conf"-file:
nano /etc/samba/smb.conf

Write the following in the file:
comment = 20 GB Festplatte
path = /media/sdb/
read only = no
writeable = yes
create mask = 0766
directory mask = 0777
guest ok = yes
force user = *****
force group = users
4) Now we have to reboot the computer, that all changes will be accepted:

5) Finished!

Linux - Kick users via console

If you have inactive users on your computer and you want to kick him, there is a very simple solution:

1) Login as root:
sudo -s

2) Displaying all processes, because the inactive user has a process-id:
ps -aux

3) You will see something like that:
1000 2626 0.0 1.1 14920 2176 ? S 19:28 0:00 sshd: ****@pts/1

4) The second number is the process-id, which must be killed to kick the user:
kill "process-id"

5) Finished!
