The port i want to open is either 2710 or 2772

My Iptables looks really missed up , How can I remove every thing from it (except the one used for the system) and then add what i need only

Take a look : ( Not all copied due to the size of the putty window)

Code:

torrents normally use 6881 tcp
then a udp for a distributed database

some isp's still slowdown the default port and it has been recommended to use something in the 40,000 to 65,538 range

this is CentOS 5 so use the Gnome gui if you are not to familiar with iptables from the terminal

as to
Quote:
package apr-1.3.12-1.el5_5.1.x86_64 (which is newer than apr-1.2.7-11.el5_6.5.i386) is already installed
what repos did you install and turn on ?
Code:
su -
yum repolist all
also that is a 64 bit rpm and it wants to replace a 32 bit rpm
so is this a 32 bit install or a 64 bit install?
and what rpms did you install NOT using yum ( did you manually install odd third party rpms)

or
do you have rpmforge AND ATrpm on and using at the same time ( if so the two are incompatible)

i am new in linux world and i was hopping to start using rutoorent so i was goggling many web sites and I know during the previous 2 days i ran a lot of commands and tried many ways.
I might manually added some sources and tried to install forge. I really need to clean all that. How can i (lets say) git rid of all thing i don't need.

rutoorent
is not a common client ( is is not even a client but ONLY a gui to the text only rtorrent)
BitTorrent and Ktorrent should be in the centos repos
Code:
su -
yum search torrent
-------- then from the list -------
yum install bittorrent
now the text only rtorrent ( back end and REQUIRED for "rutorrent" )should be in the repos and should be in the above list


also is there an ALL IMPORTANT reason to use the older 5 and NOT the current centOS 6.2

CentOS 5.7 is the ONLY supported version of the 5 series
so if this is NOT 5.7 you need to upgrade .

CentOS is a free rebuild of "Red Hat Enterprise Linux " and as such is like RHEL in that it is not a good choice for a average HOME system

It is good for running the office and for a server or in a Laboratory, but not so much as a everyday home system .


so is there an overriding NEED to use the older cent 5 on a home system ?

red hat requires a support contract and CentOS and ScientificLinux assume that YOU ( the user) can be your OWN system administrator
and can do things like set up a network or keep the system up and running with NO HELP ( there is the internet )

so the documentation is well not there .
there is the cent wiki
http://wiki.centos.org/
and the CentOS forum
( for the older 5 )
http://centos.org/modules/newbb/index.php?cat=8
then the Red Hat documentation
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/...erprise_Linux/
and last Google
https://www.google.com/


now you can edit and Change the extensive fedora guides to Cent- but you have to be able to do that
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/index.html
-- it is not easy to use fedora 16 "help" pages for Cent --
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f16.html
they are similar to each other but NOT the same


Back to Cent5 and the repos
did you read the cent wiki page ? and HEED all the warnings and install( and set up) yum-priorities
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories

In CentOS-5 there ARE A LOT of repos that are INCOMPATIBLE with each other .( mostly fixed in 6 )

i see "protectbase" installed that might be causing the 32 bit VS 64 bit program issue in the first post
http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManage...um/ProtectBase

i would use "yum-plugin-priorities" instead
http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities
UNLESS you MUST remain 100% compatible with the up-stream RHEL 5 to use a program built FOR RHEL5 ( one you paid a lot of cash for)


so fixing this

remove "protectbase"
install and configure "yum-plugin-priorities"

turn on these repos
( they are installed but off)
centosplus ( set priorities to use this OVER rpmforge)
rpmforge-extras ( set priorities o use all rpmforge LAST )

then try a update
Code:
su -
yum update

Thanks for the explanation.

Iam unable to perform the commands you suggested because I have lost connection with the server since yesterday.
I was working with nx to remotely connect my server and then accidently I terminate the session.
I lost the connection since that time. I can ping the server with 0% loss but i can't login using putty http ftp nx nothing is working.
So I asked the service provider to reboot the server manually ( Iam not sure if this is the only solution).
Till that time I do have some questions.

I am basically a windows user however now I start to learn linux.
First what do you suggest for me to install on my home system, any specific distribution good enough to star learning with and at the same time good enough to handle my daily tasks (not so complicated). And what about my server. Do you think I should change to something else other than centos ?

for a new to Linux user
"Ubuntu" and "Linux Mint" are billed as "friendly to new users"

from posts and some reviews it is looking like Mint is the preferred
http://linuxmint.com/

I my self use rpm based distros
( There is the red hat based - rpm, and the Debian based - deb operating systems .Two basic families . )

OpenSUSE and ScientificLinux

Suse is nice BUT it requires a better than average computer hardware
suse NEEDS a 64 bit CPU and 4 gig+ ( 8 gig is a good average ) ram .
