comment TCP/IP ports necessary for CIFS/SMB operation
does this also work with public IP addresses? Is it enough to open port 445 in the firewall of the ADSL modem/router?

comment root accepts any password : how to change to a real password?
what is a honeypot ? ... the system has a router before it, so i can shut down the SSH connection easily ... the problem is i want to access the ssh from the office sometimes as well (but others should not :-))

comment root accepts any password : how to change to a real password?
do you have any idea where the 'auto accept' could come from ? which files in /.etc/pam.d might have some effect on this issue ?

With the help of pingz the source of the problem is located, but now i have some problems with the new root password .. but I posted that as a new question, this time on Unix & Linux : unix.stackexchange.com/questions/180242/…

thanks again! removing nullok from the file indeed requires root to login with a real password

Thanks! I indeed see nullok in /etc/pam.d/system-auth so this seems to be the case

comment forward public port 81 to port 80 on local ip
The problem is the local (video) server was available via the public address, but the customer changed their IP plan, and now the local server is in a different part of the network ... the customer themselves can access the local server via their internal network, but i would love to access it from the public as well for maintainance

comment forward public port 81 to port 80 on local ip
@MichaelHampton : It's an old server (over 10 years old) which is still running perfectly. I could put a totally new OS on it, but the customer wants as little downtime as possible, and my motto is "don't fix when it ain't broken" :)
