We know that modern systems can have multiple hard disks and each hard disk can be divided as partitions. The idea behind partition is that it gives flexibility in managing the disks. Let’s say we have multiple operating systems to be installed in the same machine, partition provides solution for this. Each partition can have its own operating system. Apart from this advantage, partitions also help in grouping the type of files that are stored.

Updated 10-09-2012 at 06:15 PM by flshope (Took me until now to figure out how to get out of draft mode)

export ARCH=`machine`

export BUILDVER=OPENBSD_`uname -r | tr '.' '_'`

STABLE BUILD - `date` - `uname -a`


echo "Updating Sources for ${BUILDVER}"

Looking for a way to block those 404 hoppers I match the outgoing packages from sport 80 for the string 404. Now that I have those classified I needed a way to block them when they would return. Normaly i would use the recent module for this. But as its a outgoing packet and recent normally uses the source ip I would block myself to come back in. But the man pages has the --rdest option which matches/saves on the destination ip. That would be cool but I would need it to block on the incoming package....
