Just remember, folks LINE-X is a brand of Pickup truck bed liners, not operating systems ;-)

comment Capabilities of AS400 FTP Client
Thanks JamesA. This is why I love Stack Overflow... I'm working in a Linux shop, and even the best programmers here wouldn't have been able to give me that answer... yet 20 minutes later, I've got exactly what I need.

comment SeLinux blocking connection to sshd on Ubuntu 9.10
...having said that, it's also possible that I requested that SeLinux be enabled during installation... I don't remember.

comment SeLinux blocking connection to sshd on Ubuntu 9.10
Ok, as I understand it, Ubuntu has SeLinux installed, but set to permissive mode, so most of the time it shouldn't get in the way. This is how it's configured on my laptop. Apparently there's a bug in either SeLinux or sshd which will block login even though selinux is set to permissive. Setting "init_upstart=1" will tweak which user launches sshd so that selinux won't complain.

comment Testing IPv6 between Linux boxes on a LAN
Also, how are the two boxes networked? Are they connected directly via cross over cable, connected via hub, switch or router?

comment When running a shell script, how can you protect it from overwriting or truncating files?
Hmm. I don't see it. I'm never explicitly testing for the existence of $dest; the move to $dest_dir/temp should be atomic. If someone tries to access $dest after it's been moved, that will fail. Now, there is a problem with the function... the final statement should be 'cp $source $dest' rather than 'cp $source $tmp'.
