In addition, don't forget that whatever you type on most shells will be stored in a history file somewhere (like .history).

comment How to unbind nginx (or any process) from a port?
I actually wanted to if there was a general way to unbind ports irrelevant of what the process was. I would have rather eliminated the specifics and kept it general, but oh well. Do you know if I should ask the general question as another question, or revert this question?

What's the difference between ClusterSSH and GNU screen? or are they different implementations of the same concept?

The best I can do is google the same question. Would centrify.com/directcontrol/grouppolicy.asp work for you?

comment duplicity fail: not promping for password: “Running 'sftp user@host' failed”

comment duplicity fail: not promping for password: “Running 'sftp user@host' failed”
Thanks! If this command is required for scp:// protocol to work, then why are there no examples that use it? what other way is there to use scp:// and not require --ssh-askpass such that no one uses it in examples. Would the fact I'm not on a LAN make a difference?
