comment Installing Apache OpenOffice 4.1 on a web server
Would you care to explain how did you come up with this question? Does it your favourite server distro install it by default? Or your sysadmin tells you he needs it on his webservers?

comment nginx - differentiating between localhost and server IP
Exactly. But nginx will not be listening for them, but connecting to those services. iptables is the default choice on linux. Possibly with some script bundle that makes it easier to setup, like ufw, or shorewall. People locked out of their own servers is not iptables fault. It is the administrators fault. And as SF is site about professional use of information technology, I expect your site is not a for-fun experiment. Then please, leave this to a professional. Or start studying. A lot!

comment Protection while working with fiber optics
As fiber transceivers are generally lasers, you should be able to get appropriate protection goggles for the wavelengths you are using.

comment How can one redirect to a new host all traffic destined for an old host?
I have found what you have found and I take back my suggestion regarding the rules ... You are right. rdr works only on inbound traffic. But, there are another suggestion, that might help a little ... do you have set block-policy return? That could help you figure out where it gets dropped(rejected)...

I see. I'd try reverting back to the rdr only version and trying again. While at that, try dumping on actual ethernet interface and try inspecting the pf state table using pfctl -s states... btw. i do not get the downvotes either. it's a nice problem :)

Ah I found the Mac man online. It contains the same things as the one I was referring to.

comment How can one redirect to a new host all traffic destined for an old host?
I see this weird wording in FreeBSD man page (sorry, too lazy to go looking for my macbook) about the order of rules. But it does not mention the third rule does not get executed. And even the example section talks about rdring outgoing packets on the interface itself. tbh i am not sure what are the exact impact of your rules, but i'd try reducing it to just rdr ...

comment Amazon EC2: OpenVPN server won't route bridged packets from client to VPC subnet
Try tcpdumping on eth0 and tap0 ... and look for differences. Dumping on br0 will not tell you if packets get forwarded or not.

It may be a dumb question, but I can not make any sense of it ... Why are you routing it through loopback? Wouldn't rdr pass log from any to 1.2.3.4 -> 5.6.7.8 work as well and without the pass?

comment Move home directory on Azure Linux VM
Have you checked the ssh/auth/messages/syslog file for error messages? You could create user with home outside of /home to log in to and check and see what is going on. (btw. my guess is it's the permissions, you just missed something)

comment Process with the strange name loads CPU
I'd guess you have a new sysadmin. The good news sis, you don't have to pay him. The bad news is, he probably won't do any good ...

comment Does nginx allow an upstream server to respond to and close a request before it has finished?
Did you send any response (meaning status and headers) before ending it? That may be what causes NGINX to complain.

comment EC2 Linux mapping between file system and EBS volumes
That seems a fair choice. Though I prefer using /srv for such things ... it's a little more standard. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_Hierarchy_Standard for some hints on what goes where. Of course this varies depending on your distro and personal taste.

comment ZFS - zpool replace never finishes
Very wild guess. Have you tried zpool detach RAID replacing-2, or zpool offline RAID replacing-2? Or wilder yet: zpool replace RAID replacing-2 ata-ST3000DM001-1ER166_W500JFME. Please keep in mind, I haven't tried myself, so you're definitely risking the data.

comment Do you need to plan for Disk failure when using Storage Pools on Azure?
Never underestimate the power of Murphy's law. > If anything can go wrong, it will > If anything just cannot go wrong, it will anyway So if you cannot afford the failure, plan for it.
