comment How can I get sshd to tell me why it's failing public key authentications?
@Iain: Can you explain which elements from the list of necessary ones you think are missing? Note the question has been given a reasonable answer already, so enough info was available to allow that.

line breaks in the authorized_keys2 entry (which looked like wrapping).

I mistakenly assumed DEBUG would only add, well, debugging-related log messages rather than useful information, but I guess I should have seen that coming.

@MadHatter: I did do that...

comment Simple, centralized user management on a small LAN - NIS or LDAP?
Interesting answer, but I don't work at the same place anymore so I can't try it out right now...

comment SSH Tunnel as a Windows Service
How are you using sshd to have a tunnel up constantly? The page you linked to does not mention tunnels.

So, what does one need to do other than add this line to the list of 'Run' commands on login? Where do you configure it to reconnect-on-disconnect and start up minimized-to-tray?

@HåkanLindqvist: This was over a year ago, I'm no longer experiencing the problem.

@MichaelHampton: I am going into them, but I don't have anything to ask about them.

It's in a small space which is poorly ventilated.

comment Partitioning & RAID recommendation for a server with 3 disks
Added an explanation about our server failure constraints. Now, is there a benefit to having a /boot on each disk, other than symmetry? And should I RAID0 the boot partitions, or use LVM on them directly, or just have 3 separate partitions and only use one?

And you would suggest this even though for some of my data/files I don't need fault tolerance?

@longneck: Ah, yes, sorry. Fixed.

comment Partitioning & RAID recommendation for a server with 3 disks
Should I avoid filling up the volume group with logical volumes, or avoid filling the RAIDed area with the (single) volume group? Or both?

comment make dnsmasq ignore specific entries in /etc/hosts
I guess I can do that, although it simply means duplicating all-but-one-line of /etc/hosts... hmm.

comment make dnsmasq ignore specific entries in /etc/hosts
Setting up and configuring bind, as well as a separate DHCP server, and having the DHCP server and bind communicate, and synchronizing things with /etc/hosts, does not sound like a better solution. Is it more elegant? I dunno.

comment Why is there no (Debian) init.d script for usbipd? Should I write my own?
@MichaelHampton: 1. Do other distributions have an init script for it? 2. I can't believe that's the reason. If I install a telnet server, won't I get an init script for it?

comment Simple, centralized user management on a small LAN - NIS or LDAP?
@MichaelHampton: Why would I need to dedicate a server to this? Other than to have a RedHat-flavor distro?

comment Simple, centralized user management on a small LAN - NIS or LDAP?
@MichaelHampton: I am certainly not going to waste 512MB of RAM for a tiny daemon which runs occasionally doing very little. In fact, I'm not setting up VMs for anything on the server (which is in fact a relatively weak and old machine).

comment Simple, centralized user management on a small LAN - NIS or LDAP?
@Mike: The server's distro is not my choice, and I can't/don't want to use a dedicated server (or virtual server) for this.
