comment local SSH works when using “localhost”, but not using IP address
running tail on /var/log/auth.log doesn't show anything when I try to log in. I don't have a /var/log/daemon.log.

comment How can I create multiple identical AWS EC2 server instances with large amounts of persistent data?
Good answers all - marking this as best as it's what I decided to do for simplicity, but I will revisit this question when I have a bit more experience with EC2.

Will get good performance with ~100 instances all reading from the same S3 bucket at the same time? I had originally thought that it would be quicker for each instance to have a "local" copy of the necessary data.

comment How to distribute a virtual machine to allow users to try out a dependency-heavy program?
No, I am trying to figure out whether there is some sort of 'universal' VM format that can be run on any hypervisor. Commercial solutions are sadly out of the question as this is an academic research program. The host machines are most likely to be Linux or Mac.

comment How to distribute a virtual machine to allow users to try out a dependency-heavy program?
Great answer, thanks. This is for an academic research project which is likely to see very very few downloads, so I can comfortably host the VM on my lab server. I am wondering if there is a 'standard' VM file format that can be used in VMWare, Virtualbox, etc. The list of dependencies is large enough that I think people would rather download a VM + VirtualBox than install Tomcat, postgres, half a dozen other tools (most of which will require compilation) & set up all the accounts correctly.

Thanks for the suggestions. someuser$ perl -e 'print "Real: $< Effective: $>\n";' Real: 501 Effective: 501 I don't think there's been any recent version changes - this is on another user's computer so I will check. pg_hba.conf looks normal. I agree that the user should definitely be passed directly to the connect() method; I'd still like to get to the bottom of this problem though.
