Reddit: Need a little help with connecting via ssh into my pi

Friday 20th of June 2014 05:23:23 PM

I'm having a bit of an issue setting up ssh into my pi box and was wondering if someone could help me out. On my local network it works flawlessly but I keep getting connection refused over the internet.

Here is what I've done so far:

Have my pi assigned to a static ip

Changed /etc/ssh/sshd_config to listen to port 245

Set up my port forwarding on my router

updated the iptables using:

iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 245 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT


iptables -A OUTPUT -o eth0 -p tcp --sport 245 -m state --state ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT

I try to connect using ssh -p 245 and get connection refused.

I've been at this for a while now and I'm out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.

LXer: Some patients are eager to share their personal data

Friday 20th of June 2014 05:21:02 PM
While many researchers encounter no privacy-based barriers to releasing data, those working with human participants, such as doctors, psychologists, and geneticists, have a difficult problem to surmount. How do they reconcile their desire to share data, allowing their analyses and conclusions to be verified, with the need to protect participant privacy? It's a dilemma we've talked about before on the blog (see: Open Data and IRBs, Privacy and Open Data). A new project, Open Humans, seeks to resolve the issue by finding patients who are willing—even eager—to share their personal more

This latest announcement finally corrects the support period for all the Ubuntu OSes. After Canonical switched from 18 months to 9 months of support, some unusual situations were created with the upgrade path, but now everything is in order...

Reddit: Help with working out what tools to use?

Friday 20th of June 2014 02:52:01 PM

So, I was handed a challenge outside my normal area today.

I need to download the same file, from multiple destination websites, using multiple paths. Some of these paths will be proxied, some will be direct. Repeating the process every X minutes.

Then, I need to record the logs of each download, dump the logs to a spreadsheet style form, and use that to create a graph of performance.

I've already got a bash script using wget to pull all the files down, and append the output of each wget to a log file.

The problem comes here. The only way I can figure out how to get the data out of the raw text is to manually cat each file, grep out the specific data I need, and copy/paste it into LibreOffice. From there, I can build a pivot table from the data in LibreOffice.

But, as I'm sitting here doing it, I figure this has to be just about the worst way to accomplish what I'm trying to do.

So, I figured I'd ping you lovely folks. See if you've got suggestions on how I may streamline what I'm attempting to do.

Alternately, if this would be better suited for /r/programing, please let me know that as well.

Reddit: Which file in an XFCE theme affects the window buttons, and the hover affect over other panel buttons?

Friday 20th of June 2014 02:51:46 PM

I've been working with XFCE on a Debian VM in my spare time. I know themes are stored in


I want to know where in a theme are the settings for panel related settings such as the button hover state, and window button color.

I don't want to change the settings for my current configuration. I want to know what file in a theme ordinarily has the settings mentioned above.

TuxMachines: Logitech Isn't Yet Fully Supporting Linux

Friday 20th of June 2014 02:49:48 PM

Outside of Logitech, there's many Linux users that have come up with several different open-source utilities for supporting Logitech under Linux. For most of these apps the hardware support is limited to the few keyboards/mice that the developer owns, but it isn't too hard reverse-engineering a USB keyboard for others to help out and contribute.
