    Unsure

    Hello guys,

    I am from the netherlands and I got a OVH dedicated server today based on Debian 4.0.

    The problem I am facing now is that I do not know how to get it started, download and upload torrents etc, login to it, use it...

    I am really a noob in this stuff.

    I got a IP address of the dedicated server, a name (kimsufi...blabla), username, and a password...

    But how do I get this thing started?!

    Please help me out and there m8 be something in it for you aswell

    Hope to hear from some of you.

    You may also want to install rtorrent instead of utorrent. If yes, search google for 'installing utorrent on ubuntu/debian'.

    Download putty (google it). Put your hostname in putty, click Open. It will then ask you for your username and password. Put it and login. Then install the things as mentioned in NAQ's guide posted by Carlpb. Basically, you need to install four things. First, VNC Server, second FTP server, third wine, and fourth fluxbox. Then you need to put fluxbox in .vnc/xstartup file and then launch vncserver. Then you can run utorrent via wine once you are in VNC. This is all given in a very detailed manner in the NAQ's guide. Follow it step by step.

    yo m8 thanks!

    but when I enter this:

    # apt-get install vncserver wine xterm fluxbox vsftpd firefox vnstat

    it says:

    E: Package vncserver has no installation candidate

    same goes for vsftpd and vnstat

    I also get the following error:

    # update-menus

    gives result:

    -bash: update-menus: command not found

    could someone help me out? seems it's not installing vncserver, vsftpd, and vnstat...

    EDIT 1: if I do apt-get install vnc4server, it installs successfully, but what about vsftpd and vnstat and the '# update-menus' command that doesn't work? Also if I install it as vnc4server instead of vncserver, do I need to type this:

    $ mkdir .vnc
    $ nano .vnc/xstartup
    fluxbox (ctrl + o, ctrl + x
    $ chmod +x .vnc/xstartup

    or do I need to type:

    $ mkdir .vnc4
    $ nano .vnc4/xstartup
    fluxbox (ctrl + o, ctrl + x
    $ chmod +x .vnc4/xstartup

    WATCH THE 4!

    I did apt-get update 10 times, still this result:

    E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    and still this:


    E: Package vncserver has no installation candidate

    I would recommend doing a reinstall with Ubuntu Desktop.Then you can just use NoMachine to connect as you would use RDP with windows. It is easier to use than debian because you get a gui and you can do many things simiularly as you would with windows.


    But if you don't want to go that route,
    give:

    sudo apt-get install vncserver wine xterm fluxbox vsftpd firefox vnstat

    a try
