|ok I followed this ClarkConnect TS setup by Aw Phuch and finally got Teamspeak to work as "nobody" as per that pages instructions... Took 12 hours of my time today b/c of numerous snafus & restarts & reinstalls with frugal K i feel stupid enough tyvm but I got it to work even spreading the opt & home directories to two different partitions.|
Anyway I ran thru the instructions to setup a Ventrilo server & for some reason i cannot get it to start as the user nobody using almost identical instructions to what was suggested on that webpage. If I type in "sudo -u nobody <path to vent>/ventrilo-srv -d" to a regular term, as root no less, i get permission denied too! I tried to put a similar line into /opt/bootlocal.sh but it kept spitting out an error that "sudo -u" was not a valid command?
So any help is appreciated.
1) Upload the file to the machine that you plan on running the server on. This is only important if the host computer is not the same as the computer you are currently using.
2) Open a terminal window (telnet or OpenSSH) to the host computer that will be running the server.
3) Set your working directory to where ever you want to create the ventrilo directory.
4) Type "mkdir ventrilo"
5) Type "cd ventrilo"
6) Copy the tar.gz file into this new directory.
7) Type "gunzip " followed by the name of the tar.gz file.
8) Type "tar xf " followed by the name of the tar file. (gunzip removed the gz extension).
9) Note: Some platforms allow for combining steps 7 and 8 into a single command by typing "tar zxf " followed by the name of the tar.gz file.
10) Type: "./ventrilo_srv".
|Notice there is no space following the "-f" option. The above line assumes you are using the default file names. Now, lets assume you are running two servers on the same machine. Each server would need to have its own port number assigned to it. Thus, we recommend naming the files by the port numbers. To start both servers using the "-f" option you issue the following commands.|
/home/ventrilo/ventrilo_srv -f/home/ventrilo/3784 -d
/home/ventrilo/ventrilo_srv -f/home/ventrilo/4000 -d
