Faruqrhel, welcome to LQ Security.

First, please read this FAQ page regarding how to create a proper post. Your subject line and question are phrased very poorly.

Second, please realize that this is a forum of volunteers who give their time and effort freely. Demanding attention, and comments like "pls quick reply" will not help you and are more likely to cause you to not get an answer.

Third, please spell out your words and avoid using Internet and texting abbreviations like: pls, ur, u, thx, etc.

Now to try and answer your question:
Quote:
Root login shall have an extended timeout if login fails.
You need to use the pam_tally module (link) You will need to be extra careful with the root account because you can create a denial of service situation if someone deliberately tries to access the root account of your system.

Send me your paycheck and I'll do your work for you.

Even from half a world away.

The OP has been corrected once so there is no reason to reply OT like that. So please reply on topic or don't,
TIA.

Ok..then set up a remote syslog server, and tell your system(s) to send logs to it.

I apologize to all. Really.

Now, to the pointless-point of the thread: posting one line at a time on two separate dats from what must be a Request For Proposals document (of some kind) is, well, IMHO, "forum spam at best." It is unanswerable and pointless. Hence the reply. You're more generous on your forum than I am on mine.

I would like to help you, but I really don't understand the question. Your posts look like statements in a requirements specification, but that may be a translation problem, but it makes it difficult to discern your question(s). If English, which can be especially difficult in technical subjects, is not your strongest language, maybe you could write out a more detailed explaination in another language and then use Google Translate to convert it before posting here?

We can try, but you have to start doing things to. Things like reading/following the LQ Rules about opening new threads for new questions. Common courtesy like saying thanks for the suggestions given to you, not saying things are 'urgent', and actually PARTICIPATING in the conversation.

All you've done thus far is post vague questions, and not even acknowledge the help anyone has tried to give you. Clarify your question, provide useful details, and perhaps we can help. For example:
  • HOW do you want to 'export' things?
  • WHAT 'explicit demands'??
  • Do you mean a whole file system, or do you just need subdirectories?
  • What kind of clients are attaching to it?
  • Version/distro of Linux?

// FWIW I have asked the OP via email to be more forthcoming. Note though, him being a new member, leniency is key. I also have a good indication English isn't his native tongue.
