at last, i have my own domain :D. google apps is a really solid rock. so instead of purchasing with other registrar, i decided to purchase the domain with google. though its actually register ur domain with godaddy or enom. but u get google apps standard edition setup freely for ur domain. its worth the money. cost only 10$ a year. i also get all the new domain features from my new domain will be redirecting the traffic here at untill i configure my home page and other stuffs.

i will recommend u all to consider purchasing a domain from google. the prob is that its only supports very few tld registration currently.

was wondering how to run a vm on a termi…

was wondering how to run a vm on a terminal server (no gui), and remotely access that vm through rdp on a remote box. the first thing u do is installing the virtualbox on that server using ssh from the remote box. then u have to create a vm (ofcourse) to connect. i will use winxp as a vm guest. my host is kubuntu (does’t matter). and i will use krdc to connect to that vm.
i am gonna a create a winxp vm with 256mb ram and 6gb of hdd capacity. here wat i will do in the server to creat the the vm:

VBoxManage createvm -name “Win XP” -register
VBoxManage modifyvm “Win XP” -memory “256MB” -acpi on -boot1 dvd -nic1 nat
VBoxManage createvdi -filename “WinXP.vdi” -size 6000 -register
VBoxManage modifyvm “WIn XP” -hda “WinXP.vdi”
VBoxManage registerimage dvd /home/WinXP.iso
VBoxManage modifyvm “WinXP” -dvd /home/WinXP.iso

definitely u need to have the winxp iso file stored on that server. now lets start the vm, but remember the terminal server has no gui, i am still in the ssh mode connected with this server. so u will use a great tool of virtualbox called “VBoxHeadless” which enable us to run any vm through virtualbox with vrdp enables at 3389 port.

VBoxHeadless -startvm “Win XP”

u will see something like this in the terminal…

VirtualBox Headless Interface 3.0.12

Listening on port 3389

as u can see the vrdp of that vm in listening on port 3389 (default port for rdp). u can change this port too. for this and many other options plz see the manual or man/help pages.
now lets connect to this vm. remember one thing u will not give guest ip address and port for connecting to the vm, but the host ip address and the port on which the vm is running and vrdp is listening. u can also use rdesktop (a cmd line tool) in linux. so in krdc, i used (the ip of that terminal server) with no port mention, cause by default the port for rdp is 3389 and any rdp client knows that.

finally, i managed to connect and explore the winxp with out hampering the terminal server for gui.

one and only, my very childhood friend (…

one and only, my very childhood friend (maro langgotia yarra) avijit has came from dubai on a long vacation. i was planning for a out as usual. so this time we went to the kolkata zoo to see how animals are doing besides getting bored and carbonated. jayanta also joined us on this useless journey. hope we will enjoy a bit.
after seeing the condition of the zoo, i really have to say “the animals and birds of the kolkata zoo doing a great great… favor to the people to staying in that nice rotten place day after day without protesting and killing each other or going crazy like me”. i tried to take some nice pictures. all i have published on my flickr account. we also had a plan to go to birla planetarium near victoria garden, but for my health prob we missed that way. yea, they were both so cool with this that they could have burn me immediately and serve to the tigers n hippos, happily.


we are the birds, we can fly

one thing i forget, which was the best part for me. yes, the lunch. we had a pretty spicy but not heavy meal there. i ordered chinese, cause thats the only choice available in that only restaurant inside the only zoo of kolkata. the price was like  our ass with a oiled bamboo. anyways, the quality was not bad. here is what i ordered:

main dish: 3 plate mix fried rice (with egg, chicken, pron and other vegs)
side dish: one chicken manchurian (boneless)
one chilly chicken (boneless)
one bottle of chilled n clean mineral water and thats all.

** if u wondering why i mention the ‘boneless’ thing, well, ‘withbone’ also was there, that’s because 😀


ps.: the health prob was due to this meal.
