Yesterday I made a small relocation of server boxes at home and decided to test if I can replace my current Pentium-I MMX 200MHz router with newer computer, which is Celeron 2400 MHz, 1GB of RAM.
Well, I sat there all night till I finally managed to make a minimal required kernel for current hardware platform. Entire system boots in around 30 secs and ready to work. I didn't add automatic start of my internet connection, I usually do it manually.
Now I'm able to see that my ISP actually...

I'm working towards automating my stum annotation via the command line. So far, I've alias'ed the Exiv2 command for reading in "command files" from text and writing the spare information that prudence allows into newly-downloaded JPEG files. Next, what I'm looking to do is streamline the process of adding source-site credit to the files using the same tool.

Stupid, isn't it?
But for those who are interested(you really are? :DDDD), it's statically defined in makefiles, to be more specific: in "configure" and "" files, as "PEER_NAME" and "PEER_VERSION"...

Denyhosts vs Fail2ban aka tcp_wrappers vs iptables

Posted 07-22-2010 at 03:58 AM by unSpawn

At times denyhosts is being recommended over fail2ban. The common misconception being these applications are equal. They're not, OK in more than one way, but focusing on method of filtering denyhosts uses tcp_wrappers by default where Fail2ban uses iptables by default.

Using tcp_wrappers means a packet has to be delivered to that service. The serving application is responsible for reading /etc/hosts.{deny,allow} to determine itself if a connection is allowed or not. Requiring a network...
