comment Throttling individual samba connections
This is a topic I have never approached before, so forgive me if my question isn't intelligent. Doing some reading, it looks like these articles are about limiting traffic for a specific service as a whole (e.g., Samba only gets 10 MBps total bandwidth). I need to limit the traffic on individual connections to a single service (e.g., Bob can't use Samba's whole 10 MBps since Suzy wants to connect to Samba too). Do these concepts apply to that as well?

comment Linux Ext4 to Ext4 rsync recopying some files
Thanks @rollercow. I normally use -a so I don't have to worry about this, but I was getting errors with some of the preserves in -a since my remote user isn't root. I thought I would have the same trouble with -t, but it works without a hitch.

comment Centos 5 missing rtcwake
That's the feeling I was getting. In fact I have another server that's running Centos 6 (which has rtcwake) but it couldn't successfully put the computer sleep. Evidently a lot of non-laptop boards struggle with this according to what I've been reading so I'll probably just shut the server down by cron and power it on manually in the morning.

comment Centos 5 missing rtcwake
I want to put my server to sleep at a certain time at night and wake it up at a certain time in the morning. All the online resources I've seen use rtcwake to do this, and it seems most other distros have it. I even tried copying the rtcwake from another distro executable but it doesn't work with the way Centos 5's /sys/ filesystem is laid out. Maybe I should post a question asking for alternative ways of doing this.

Nope, not in remi either.

Epel is installed. I'm looking at Remi now.

comment How do I mount sshfs at boot?
This worked great for me. I will note that I changed the echo commands that were outputing to stdout to logger -t mountsshfs commands instead so the output would go to syslog.

comment iptables forward one outside port to a different port on localhost
Sure, I'm just wondering what the correct "serverfault way" of handling this situation is. I'm not serious enough about it to pursue a non-iptables solution. I don't really like leaving questions open or answering my own questions.

comment iptables forward one outside port to a different port on localhost
POSTROUTING can only use the -o option, not -i. I tried it just in case (using -o), but it doesn't work. According to what I understand, the packet would hit the INPUT chain before it ever made it to POSTROUTING since the destination is the current host. Also, I would have thought we'd be doing "--dport 3389" since that's what the PREROUTING rule did, but that doesn't work either. Apparently this isn't possible using only iptables. I'll just use the standard 3389 port and forget about it. I'd be happy to have you (cjc) post a reply saying why it doesn't work and I'll accept it.
