Wise words from Yoda, warning the impatient padawan to take small steps...

I mentioned the --prefix a few entries ago, well, this would be set to the mount folder and not the device, so the entry

Quote:
/dev/sda3
really should read

Quote:
/media/sda3
Quote:
DST=/media/sda3
...then, expand the path:

Quote:
PATH=/mediq/sda3/bin:[all points expanded with the mount point]:$PATH
...that should prove to be a bit better...

"Scientific imperialism" and the proverbial "death" of art in culture

Posted 09-29-2011 at 03:04 PM by MrCode

Yes, this blog has more or less become my angst dump, at least as of recent. I know I should probably take this someplace other than LQ, but a) I feel somewhat "safe" here, and b) I don't know where I would take it even if I did take it elsewhere.

Anyways…I know this is going to sound depressing/cynical, but this is genuinely what I think is going to happen to art/creativity in the not-too-distant future:

Block outgoing port scans

Posted 09-29-2011 at 04:58 AM by senthil1186

Hi,

There are many users in a webserver I am working with, and somebody running IP scanner to other IPs,I have tried several methods to block portscans from the webserver, especially tcp scans. Even I tried to trace the file doing IP scan to several IP ranges but no joy. So If anyone have any idea about how to block ip scans from my server to other IPs Please help me.

I tried configuring psad and Iptables to block outgoing portscans but not effective....

Saved from post: Getting Broadcom STA working for non-firmware wireless adapters

Posted 09-28-2011 at 10:12 PM by ReaperX7

I recommend using the SlackBuild script to install this driver to a manageable directory.

There are several open source drivers that are used to drive Broadcom 802.11 chips such as b43 and ssb. They will conflict with this driver and need to be uninstalled before this driver can be installed. Any previous revisions of the wl driver also need to be removed.

The ssb driver must be removed (by hand or script) before wl is loaded. The wl driver will not function

I wanted to know the received network usage on a device in kB so this one liner was produced for the desired result.
Code:
while true; do y=`ifconfig eth0 | grep RX\ bytes| sed -e 's/.*bytes\://' -e 's/\ .*//'`; sleep 1; x=`ifconfig eth0 | grep RX\ bytes| sed -e 's/.*bytes\://' -e 's/\ .*//'`; echo $(((x-y)/1024)); done
Press Ctrl+C to stop analyzing the network traffic on that device.

Here's another one liner of me looking through multiple log locations.
