How I would like to enhance iptables

Posted 12-04-2012 at 04:44 PM by Skaperen

There are cases where I want to change the iptables rapdily and reliably. But these cases don't really change any rule order. They only change just the IP addresses of a rule (or gang of rules).

Xfce 4.10 and Mageia 2

Posted 12-04-2012 at 04:36 AM by nigelc

I used to like the gnome desktop, but not after gnome 3
Xfce seemed to be what gnome used to be, however it had bugs:
segfault on several programs. Desktops disappearing etc.
A few days ago some updates for xfce arrived and now it's purrfect.
On the bottom taskbar it has a blue flashing thing to show which task running.
The right mouse button works better.
It now 2 logins the gnome & the xfce.
how I remove the gnome login?

Solaris 11 Zone Backup

Posted 11-30-2012 at 05:13 AM by routers

need to have 2 file chmod 755
1) <- use to backup
2) <- use to restore (verify line ZDIR )

the zone must be shutdown before run backup
take a look at the path in the scripts to suite the need. for me, all my zone in /export/zones/
so i place this 2 scripts in this folder , work perfectly

root@sol-11:/export/zones# ls
