Telnet to Windows from *nix

Posted 08-12-2008 at 02:47 PM by grepmasterd

I've had varying results, but in some setups I've noticed that I cannot
invoke a usable telnet session to a windows telnet server (running
Microsoft's native telnet server). The return key doesn't work and the
characters I type are sent in chunks. I've mainly run into this behavior
when I've configured the windows telnet server to run on a non-standard
port, like port 923.

To address the issue, update /etc/telnetrc or a .telnetrc in your home...

Crash and Partial Recovery

Posted 08-12-2008 at 09:35 AM by MooseMagnet

The laptop crashed yesterday. Said it didn't have enough disk space to log on. Don't know what happened.
Used the Ubuntu 7.4 disk to rebuild. Then used the rsync to retrieve stuff from the USB drive. That device saved my butt.
Got hung up on the rsync command, until I remembered that the OPTION is NOT optional. This is still confusing to me.
Now, all seems fine, but the way the thumbnails display. Instead of a preview of the pic, it shows a blue box. I'll deal with this later....

List of BitTorrent clients Available in Linux

BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol used to distribute large amounts of data. The initial distributor of the complete file or collection acts as the first seed. Each peer that downloads the data also uploads it to other peers. Relative to standard internet hosting, this provides a significant reduction in the original distributor's hardware and bandwidth resource costs. It also provides redundancy against system problems and reduces dependence on the original distributor.

I still think it is related to wine. when I click on the file to "open with" I open with "wine windows program loader". I have tried opening with another application, I get the same thing. I have wine selected in my add/remove. I have tried to download wine from winehq, and it tells wine already installed. I am so confused. I have done everything Tim suggest from the terminal, with no success. Where do we go from here???

Thanks Nancy
