I've noticed that when I open firefox I get really strange HTTP and HTTPS connections showing up in firestarter (which as I understand it is just a GUI for IPtables). They connect to various bits of a site listed as 1e100.net (when you use "lookup hostnames") such as wy-in-f18.1e100.net, they stay connected all the time as far as I can see unless I close firefox. I've heard people say they are connected to Google, but I can close all tabs after loging out of google and still see them... it's very odd.
I am trying to set up a simple script to automatically invoke streamripper to record my favourite radio shows. The script works fine in a terminal window (Konsole), but when scheduling this as a cron job (KCron via SystemSettings) a Konsole window pops up catching the streamripper output.
Now stramripper can behave with the --quiet option, and I set output redirects "> /dev/null 2>&1". Inside the script or on the command line of KCron.
sh myscript.txt >/dev/null 2>&1
...or just as the script without the "sh" command. Same result. Still the same annoying Konsole terminal window pops up, now with no other content than what Cron obviously generates at the end of the script execution:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- End of script execution. Type Enter or Ctrl+C to exit. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well, the whole point of this cron scheduling was to avoid manual intervention and create the MP3 file of the radio show automatically. how to avoid the terminal window completely?
I have troubels with internet, on different Linux x64 systems on my laptop(Lenovo ThinkPad sl510), but if I load WindowsPE all is OK ( what coud it be? where to search?There is an hardwere firewall/nat/gateway in my local network, it allows only connections to dst ports tcp 80 (http), udp 53 (dns) and no frags, no icmp, deny in and etc. But Windows Internet (the same Firefox) works fine , and under Linux sites doesn't loding full or "connetion timed out"...But if I have can start downloading any file it would be downloaded full (I have downloaded DVD iso of SuSe)Dns throu nslookup responce not evry time...Decreasing of MTU to 1372 didn't help (( Deactivating ip v6 also....What coud it be? What is different betwin Windows and Linux in DNS clients is any alternative dns client in SuSe? Is the trouble only in DNS?
So we have DNS round robin set up for 4 servers. If we ping dns name (basically an alias) server_connect it resolves with different IP address in round robin format. I.E. x.x.x.1 x.x.x.2 for the 4 different server IP addresses. When we do nslookup server_connect it will come back first time as server1_connect server2_connect through server4_connect so the server is able to resolve through ping and nslookup resolving the initial dns name (alias) to the dns name associated in the round robin. Problem is when we try to connect with http or telnet it comes back host unrecognized. I can put one of the 4 round robin servers in /etc/hosts and it connects fine so I'm thinking that either one of three things. 1) ttl 2) It does double connection first to identify itself to the round robin server and then handshake but second time it hits for the handshake the IP and dns name is different than what it expected so it fails. 3) Since we are trying to telnet to dns alias and it is returning different dns name it fails.
2 and 3 seem most promising but now I'm at a stand still.Anyone else come across this issue and if so how did you resolve.
I have a dual Monitor Setup, both SXGA LCDs, one rotated left. With kernels and Xservers available from debian making settings appropriate kills X and apparently leaves modesetting and keyboard missconfigured - monitors say: no signal and it is not possible to switch to any VT until sysrq-unraw (alt-print-r) is pressed, which makes the system responding to keyboard, but still leaves the screens blank. Restarting the display manager sets a working mode with both screens showing the same.
I just bought a new HP desktop, and I want to install Debian on the hard drive. I ran the Windows program on the Debian CD to start the install.
I selected Manual drive setting, and resized the large C: partition to 50 GB. I want to install Debian in some of the free space, only their isn''t any free space! The 400+ GB I took out of the C: partition is labeled "unusable" instead of "free space."
If I double click the unusable space, I am just given the cylinder/head/sector numbers. How I can make that space usable?
I would boot my Gparted CD, but I don't know how to get to the BIOS. The boot screen goes right to Windows without showing me the key to get to the BIOS. I tried hitting DEL, but to no effect. Do you know what the HP computers use to interrupt the boot?
have a problem with my network-manager in ubuntu 10.10.when I dial one of my vpn connections, my other vpn connections be disabled and I can't use them!I tried to restart network-manager and gnome-panel, but it does't seem to solve this problem.
When I click on an http link in Thunderbird, nothing at all happens. There's no error message on the console, there's no new browser starting, and there's no new tab opening with the browser already running.
I've tried: sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser, choosing firefox.I've also tried: adding a new string value to Thunderbird's warranty-voiding config: network.protocol-handler.app.http, with a value of /usr/bin/firefox. This was recommended in various threads.But no luck.There's an entry for https - firefox on the Attachment tab of the preferences, and https links are indeed opening in Firefox. But not http.KDE 4.4.2 itself has default mail client and browser set to Thunderbird 3.0.4 and Firefox 3.6.3 (both from the repositories, no website downloads).
Today I noticed my sdl modem flashing away when I had no internet access programs active as far as I was aware. I did a 'ps ax' to see what was running. I saw nothing that warranted internet access. I didn't recognize the gvfsd-computer process and tried finding documentation about it on my system. I began to feel uncomfortable when I couldn't find anything showing what it was. Finally, I killed the process and the internet access immediately stopped. Research on the net showed that gvfsd-computer is a file browser. I find this very disturbing. Why was a file browser accessing my disk drive (the light was flashing) and why was it accessing the internet without my requesting such an action?
I have a webserver WWW1 and a front-facing proxy PRX. I use SSH ProxyCommand to connect to WWW1's internal IP (private IP) via PRX (private+public IP). For some connections (not all) I see a network connection left open after I'm finished. These add up!
~/.ssh/config Host * ServerAliveInterval 5 ControlMaster auto
On PRX, lsof | grep WWW1:ssh shows 124 open connections at the moment. On WWW1, the same command shows 243 open connections. There are similar open connections for WWW2, WWW3 etc.
WWW1 and PRX are Debian. Client connections are coming from a mix of Debian, Ubuntu and OSX10.6. I use Emacs Tramp but this has no special configuration (AFAIK) outside of my ~/.ssh/config. I'm concerned about running out of internal ports, and ideally I want these connections to clean themselves up without intervention. Ideally by configuring them to kill themselves off; failing that a command I can kill old processes with is fine!
Evolution has balked at every webaddress I've thrown at it: Example: Code: Could not connect to imap.google.com (port imaps): Host lookup failed: imap.google.com: Name or service not known same thing happened for smtp as well as the canonical names provided by nslookup.
I was able to succeed in connecting my email finally by using the IP provided by nslookup, but still am unable to get my google Calendar to connect: Code: Cannot open calendar: Unexpected HTTP status code 2 returned (Cannot resolve hostname (www.google.com)) No proxy settings configured in Evolution or Fedora and none needed. Lemme know what else I can provide.
Our DBA has an application running on Server2 which needs to connect to Server1 (Linux OEL5.5 server) thru port# 9171. I use telnet to test basic connectivity.What should I do on Server1 in order to open up port#9171 for connection.
Using netcat, nc(1), craft a valid http/1.1 request for getting http headers (not the html file itself!) for the main index page of www dot aalto dot fi. What request method did you use? Which headers did you need to send to the server? What was the status code for the request? Which headers did the server return? Explain the purpose of each header.
nc -v www dot aalto dot fi 8080 HEAD / HTML/1.1 host: www dot aalto dot fi And it returns: 200 OK Content-Length: 858 Content-Type: text/html Last-Modified: Thu, 02 Sep 2010 12:46:01 GMT [Code]....
I really don't know what does it mean. Question 2: Using netcat, nc(1), start a bogus web server listening on the loopback interface port 8080. Verify with netstat(, that the server really is listening where it should be. Direct your browser to the bogus server and capture the User-Agent: header "Direct your browser to the bogus server and capture the User-Agent: header" I don't understand this question.
I installed Nagios on my Ubuntu 10.04 server using apt-get and when I accessed the web console, everything was OK. I made some changes to apache (creating some new virtual sites) and since then Nagios gives me a warning message for HTTP with the message, HTTP WARNING: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found. The sites that I created are working perfectly. I noticed that the attemps are 4/4. Does this need to be reset or does Nagios automatically reset that once it detects the issue is resolved?
I'd like to ask about archive mounter feature, can I mount zip file with read write mode? can gvfsd-archive do that?, or I must use fuse-zip to mount it? If I must use fuse-zip, how I wrap it so I can use it via nautilus or via gvfs-fuse-daemon
Is it fair to say that connLimit and hashlimit are very similiar on Linux i.e. while hashlimit caters to limits for groups of ports, they both set the connection rate limit per host? How in IPTables, do I configure a policy that limits connections on a port that encapsulates the total sum of all connections from all hosts? i.e. I do not want to allow more than 6000conn/minute for port range that is the sum of all connecting hosts?
I recently installed Fedora 15 now, and during installation I set the internet connection manually, then did update and after reboot, the internet connection settings have been removed. Now I can not set because the network connection to the Internet Connection is inactive. I mention that before the update was functional internet connection.
I got two IP's in my dedicated server. Both are external IP's. I would like to make connections using 2nd IP address under eth0:0 interface. For example: when using "lynx whatismyip.com" should display my 2nd IP. How to do this using iptables ?
I have debian 4.0 installed for my apache web server (for some reason I did not require PHP all these days...). Now, I wanted to install PHP5 on the server. But I get http errors.When I run apt-get update I get the following error0% [Connecting to security.debian.org] later it displays[URL]The same happens when I try to install PHP5What could be the reason... should I fix sources.list?
When clicking in an e-mail on an http link the web browser doesn't open. I use Opera as standard web browser and Icedove ask me every time how to open. I have already done: update-alternatives --config x-www-browser" and choosen for Opera but this doesn't work. Is there an alternative way to tell Icedove that is must open weblinks with Opera.
My question is rather simple, but i couldn`t find any answer yet i have a debian box connected to the internet through an ad-hoc wireless connection with a win7 box.Could I run a http server on the linux box and access it from the "outside" somehow, since my linux box has a "private network" type IP, ie: 192.168.137.12 ?
