Reddit: I dont understand SSH command syntax..

Sunday 3rd of July 2016 08:31:34 PM

I am trying to understand port forwarding using SSH. Every place that I am looking for an example, they show different explanation.. (maybe typo problems.. idk)

Let say the syntax for local port forwarding (traffic from myserver to remotehost to host) is: <Enter> myserver# ssh -L port:host:hostport user@remotehost So the explanation to this syntax will be: Let traffic go though port port on myserver to remotehost (though the ssh tunnel) to port hostport on host So for example: server1# ssh -L 8080:MyWebServer:80 root@MySSHserver Let traffic go though port 8080 on server1 to MySSHserver (though the ssh tunnel) to port 80 on MyWebServer

And remote port forwarding (traffic from remotehost to myserver to host) syntax will be: myserver# ssh -R port:host:hostport user@remotehost So the explanation to this syntax will be: Let traffic go though port port on remotehost to myserver (though the ssh tunnel) to port hostport on host So for example: server1# ssh -R 80:localhost:8080 root@MySSHserver Let traffic go though port 80 on MySSHserver to server1 (though the ssh tunnel) to port 8080 on localhost (which is server1)

Is my understanding of this syntax is correct and so my examples?

TuxMachines: Want to bring that old netbook back to life? Hands-on with Manjaro LXQt and LXLE

Sunday 3rd of July 2016 07:02:54 PM

Either of these would be a good choice for the N150. If I were making the choice it would be Manjaro LXQt, because I like (and trust) Manjaro, it is smaller overall, it has made a lot of the same choices I would make in packages, and it just feels a bit snappier overall on the N150. But other people might very well prefer LXLE because it is based on Ubuntu and they prefer the package selection. It's all good.

  • What’s up with nano?

    As expected, the recent state of events where nano transitioned maintainership to Benno Schulenberg, and the project left GNU, has a lot of people speculating about what happened, and more disappointingly, making some pretty nasty assertions about motivations. I want to try and give a brief update on them to hopefully calm things down.

  • User freedom in the age of computer-generated software

    Many of us share a vision for the way software, free or otherwise, is developed: software is written by a programmer as “source code” and transformed through some mechanisms into “object code.” As free software activists, we are used to thinking about our legal, development, and community processes and tooling in terms of this workflow. But what happens when software which used to be written manually by humans is developed generatively through other software? How does this affect software and user freedom?

    A federal judge for the Eastern District of Virginia has ruled that the user of any computer that connects to the Internet should not have an expectation of privacy because computer security is ineffectual at stopping hackers.

    The June 23 ruling came in one of the many cases resulting from the FBI's infiltration of PlayPen, a hidden service on the Tor network that acted as a hub for child exploitation, and the subsequent prosecution of hundreds of individuals. To identify suspects, the FBI took control of PlayPen for two weeks and used, what it calls, a "network investigative technique," or NIT—a program that runs on a visitor's computer and identifies their Internet address.

Hi. Does anyone know the thing that could play mp3\flac files and visualize 'em right in my tty (NOT terminal)? Imagine vlc + caca but, without vlc b'cause it doesn't work in my tty for some reason. Just some thing like mp3blaster + ascii visualize plugin. No mpd for I don't need sqlite3 and other server-client crap stuff to listen to my music file. Assume it's an embedded system. You know such a thing? Please share.

TuxMachines: 4 Reasons an Open Source CMS Should Be Appealing to IT

Sunday 3rd of July 2016 05:07:12 PM

With an open source CMS, there’s a massive development community, which alleviates the constraint of a limited pool of technical resources. That coupled with full access to the code allows organizations to drive their technical needs based on their business requirements — not the other way around. A site built for the business user reduces the need for technical support in the first place, further enabling non-technical users to take control of their online presence.

TuxMachines: ARM Lead

Sunday 3rd of July 2016 03:26:58 PM
  • Inside Japan’s Future Exascale ARM Supercomputer

    The rumors that supercomputer maker Fujitsu would be dropping the Sparc architecture and moving to ARM cores for its next generation of supercomputers have been going around since last fall, and at the International Supercomputing Conference in Frankfurt, Germany this week, officials at the server maker and RIKEN, the research and development arm of the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) that currently houses the mighty K supercomputer, confirmed that this is indeed true.

  • Fujitsu turns to ARM for Post-K supercomputer

    Alternative chip architectures are taking some thunder away from Intel's x86 at this week's International Supercomputing Conference in Frankfurt.

    China's TaihuLight, which was ranked the world's fastest supercomputer, has a homegrown chip. And the ARM architecture, which dominates mobile-device chips, will appear in Fujitsu's next flagship supercomputer.

  • Intel: ARM Servers To Renew Their Attack

    Up until now, server chips based on ARM Holdings' (NASDAQ:ARMH) architecture have had little impact on the data center market, and Intel's (NASDAQ:INTC) Data Center Group has continued to grow. ARM server vendors are preparing the next wave of server chips based on 14-16 nm FinFET technology. These will be much more competitive and energy efficient and could start to erode Intel's share of the data center by 2017.

Reddit: Enhanced security

Sunday 3rd of July 2016 03:19:14 PM

I'm new to enhanced security and I'm considering SELinux..

I've a question about SE. Is really needed? I see that most distro does not support it, and when supported, user (in most cases) disable it on server and desktop. On a great number of ml I can read "oh, I have a problem" and reply "oh, disable selinux"

Why users suggest to disable it instead to study it?

Do you got some experiences with it and if yes, selinux made the differences?

AppArmor is included.

Introduction to Modularity

Modularity is an exciting, new initiative aimed at resolving the issue of diverging (and occasionally conflicting) lifecycles of different “components” within Fedora. A great example of a diverging and conflicting lifecycle is the Ruby on Rails (RoR) lifecycle, whereby Fedora stipulates that itself can only have one version of RoR at any point in time – but that doesn’t mean Fedora’s version of RoR won’t conflict with another version of RoR used in an application. Therefore, we want to avoid having “components”, like RoR, conflict with other existing components within Fedora. Read more

Our First Look at Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon

Now that I’ve had about a week to play around in Mint 18, I find a lot to like and have no major complaints. While Cinnamon probably isn’t destined to become my desktop of choice, I don’t dislike it and find it, hands down, the best of the GNOME based desktops I’ve tried so far. Anybody looking for a powerful, all purpose distro that’s designed to work smoothly and which can be mastered with ease would be hard pressed to find anything better. Read more

The subtle art of the Desktop

The history of the Gnome and KDE desktops go a long way back and their competition, for the lack of a better term, is almost as famous in some circles as the religious divide between Emacs and Vi. But is that competition stil relevant in 2016? Are there notable differences between Gnome and KDE that would position each other on a specific segment of users? Having both desktops running on my systems (workstation + laptop) but using really only one of them at all times, I wanted to find out by myself. My workstation and laptop both run ArchLinux, which means I tend to run the latest stable versions of pretty much any desktop software. I will thus be considering the latest stable versions from Gnome and KDE in this post. Historically, the two environments stem from different technical platforms: Gnome relies on the GTK framework while KDE, or more exactly the Plasma desktop environment, relies on Qt. For a long time, that is until well into the development of the Gnome 3.x platform, the major difference was not just technical, it was one of style and experience. KDE used to offer a desktop experience that was built along the lines of Windows, with a start center on the bottom left, a customizable side bar, and desktop widgets. Gnome had its two bars on the top and bottom of the screen, and was seemingly used as the basis for the first design of Mac OS X, with the top bar offering features that were later found in the Apple operating system.
