Step-By-Step Configuration of NAT with iptables

Filed under
Linux
HowTos

This tutorial shows how to set up network-address-translation (NAT) on a Linux system with iptables rules so that the system can act as a gateway and provide internet access to multiple hosts on a local network using a single public IP address. This is achieved by rewriting the source and/or destination addresses of IP packets as they pass through the NAT system.

SUSE

A series of events led me to installing a copy of Novell's Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 last week. Given the hype that Novell had made around the distribution I was expecting to be impressed. And I was.

Fedora Core 6: Beauty or Beast?

Filed under
Linux
Reviews

After the usual new-release downloading frenzy died down a bit, I downloaded the 3.3 gigabyte DVD .iso image, stoked the boiler of my test PC, and put Fedora Core 6 through its paces. My mission: to determine if FC6 is suitable for production systems, or if it's better suited as a bleeding-edge testbed.

If MS plans to sue for intellectual property related issues, IBM is unlikely to choose an obsequious posture. Today's leaders at big blue don't cower to opposition. Moreover, even when tides turn, they demonstrate some unique strategy of their own.

How to bridge networks with OpenVPN

Filed under
HowTos

OpenVPN is an easy-to-use open source VPN software based on SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) that offers cross-platform interoperability. The majority of OpenVPN tutorials I've found describe how users can connect to a corporate network from their laptops over insecure networks, such as the wireless network in a hotel. By contrast, the setup I'm about to describe is better suited for permanently connecting entire networks -- for example, branch offices to the headquarters of a company.

Playing with partitions

Filed under
HowTos

If you ever partition your hard disk you will find that no matter how smart you think you have organized your partitions you will always come to a situation where you have to play around with your partitions. Fortunately with linux and indeed all *nix based systems it is not only easy but often an integral part of the system. I am going to go through a couple of scenarios.

KDE and Gnome Comparison

Filed under

This is not, by any means a comprehensive look at the differences between KDE and Gnome, but it should give new users a small taste of their different strengths and weaknesses and their philosophical approaches to usability.

Fedora Core 6

Filed under
Reviews

Fedora Core is often called a test version of Red Hat, but many believe that it deserves to be recognised as a fully fledged distribution in its own right. Led by a community and sponsored by Red Hat, Fedora is probably one of the most popular GNU/Linux distributions in the world, with users including Wikipedia. It recently reached its sixth release, so let's see what's inside.

Implementing Disk Quotas on Linux

Filed under
HowTos

This tutorial walks you through implementing disk quotas for both users and groups on Linux, using a virtual filesystem, which is a filesystem created from a disk file. Since quotas work on a per-filesystem basis, this is a way to implement quotas on a sub-section, or even multiple subsections of your drive, without reformatting. This tutorial also covers quotactl, or quota's C interface, by way of an example program that can store disk usage in a SQLite database for monitoring data usage over time.

Create Photo Mosaics with Metapixel

Filed under
HowTos

I've always thought that mosaics were an interesting art form, so when I ran across Metapixel a while back I noted it as an app worth checking out. Metapixel is a single purpose tool, but it does its job very well. In no time you can create an impressive photo mosaic using your existing photos and a couple commands.

Red Fedora Fits Well Enough For Analyst To Give A Boost To Red Hat

Filed under
Linux

Robert Stimson of analyst firm W.R. Hambrecht initiated coverage of Red Hat with a bang on Tuesday. Despite facing threats from giant Oracle and the strange alliance between former enemies Microsoft and Novell that obviously targets Red Hat, the Hatters and their stock were labeled as a “buy” with a target stock price of $21.

Ubuntu Rescued My Laptop

Filed under
Ubuntu

A few weeks ago I started seeing the “Blue Screen of Death” on my Sony Vaio PCG-K35 laptop every 10 minutes or so, making the computer nothing more than an overpriced 7 lb. brick. I pulled it out last week and was unable to find the activation keys to Windows XP Pro and Microsoft Office that came with the laptop from the OEM. This weekend I installed the Ubuntu Linux 6.10.
