Breaking down and finally asking for help-need step-by-step

Postby I WUB PUGS » Thu 25 Sep 2014 03:39

I have a virtual machine running through NFO servers with Debian 7 Wheezy x64.

I am a windows user through and through to including running an ArmAIII server on Windows Server for a bit. Setting up the config files isn't an issue really.............although I have no idea what port I need to use............

My problem is that I'm basically stuck on the command line of Debian.

I've done some Ubuntu before and I actually managed to get that up and running on this same server but this requires Debian to run the game.........sooooo I'm doing Debian.

Basically I need to get some sort of GUI installed (with a built in web browser) here since I can't just upload files to my server and call them via command line, I need some way of moving stuff over............so per the usual I just email them to myself after I'm done editing them on my desktop. Then I open a browser on my remote server and download the files from my email. I need to do this anyway to get my files from Eugen's link.

So how do I get passed the command line here to get this server running. I thought I was able to install gnome earlier but I could never access it, always stuck on the command line.

So yeah, treat me like I know next to nothing. I'm really good at following bullets without needing paragraphs of detail, just tell me what to type and I'll do it. :lol:

ok here is what you need:

winscp
http://winscp.net/eng/index.php

putty
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

and the eugen files from their site.

set up remote access on your server:
http://www.havetheknowhow.com/Configure ... Putty.html

copy the eugen files over with win scp:
http://winscp.net/eng/docs/task_upload

extract them using command line:

post if you get that far and i'll finish write the rest of the steps.

It just came preloaded for me. After I type in my user and password at the prompt I'm just sitting on the command line.

Got a command to bring up the GUI?

I'll start on the instructions later today.

i can look into but i once used x11 to bring up a window from a command line interface. there is also a way to have your desktop export through x11. note it is slow and i don't remember how to do it exactly. i think you have to enable x11 somewhere on the linux machine itself.

is this a physical machine you have access to or is it hosted through a service?

there´s a bazillion of threads in the ALB´s server section, answering every possible question, what to download, how to setup and how to get your server running.

just like this here:

http://www.wargame-ee.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=163&t=38545

don´t get me wrong, but if you follow those, it´s no real rocket science to get your server running.
read them, get a tested VM and a 32 bit wheezy installer with an useful GUI included (all links included), and start from scratch.

sorry, but there lots of different debian distributions.
definitely NOT all come with a GUI.

and he told, he´s running a VM, so it ain´t no physical machine.

the ones with out are usually server versions/embedded that are not downloaded as much by the average person.
