I tried X forwarding with ssh a but could never succeed. I do not what went wrong or what are the mistakes that I did but ssh is what I use and it never hampered my work. I am still trying with X forwarding. Lets see if I can work on it.

Not just him but a lot of people, including me, would go against GUI on server.
Webmin is a good and handy tool to use if you need some graphical front end tool for administration. It gives front end to almost everything you want to administer. Also it is web based. So you can do over the network and not necessarily be infront of your server all the time. It also gives the permissions to users and what they are allowed.
And it is available through Ubuntu repositories as well. So installing it is a piece of cake.
Code:
apt-get install webmin
Hi linuxlover.chaitanya,

I installed ubuntu server. I tried installing the webmin app but I get the following error message:



Package webmin is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
E: Package webmin has no installation candidate


any help is greatly appreciate it.
thanks

Instead of downloading the tarball, there is a .deb binary that can be directly installed.
Also you can check with apt-get if webmin is available or not. But I know it is available on Hardy desktop repos.

ok, I've been playing around with Ubuntu server> I was able to configure SAMBA, FTP and create a few folders for backup however I find it a little hard get around due to the fact that I'm so used to YaST. Here it is a question that just pop-up as I was falling asleep (It's 2am in NJ) which Distro Server is better? Ubuntu or OpenSuse? I know this is most like a personal choice but I would like to get your opinion since most of you guys have a lot of experience with Linux Servers. I have an Intel Celeron 2.4, 1.5GB RAM, 200GB hard drive.
Thanks guys and good nite! :=)

Samba 4 Will address a lot of those issues that are currently lacking..AD Domains, Possibly even handling GPO's..
