comment Cannot run java as regular linux user
If you installed java from a repository, you'd better notify the maintainer.

comment Problem for reading large log files in redhat linux server
@Javier: the best general advice. Another catch is to direct different log levels to different files if this is possible.

comment Configuring linux server firewall to allow access from a certain range of IP addresses
The link in my answer points to the HOWTO, which has examples for both a default DENY policy and an ALLOW rule for a certain IP. Stating that "I've seen a lot of tutorials but none of them fits what I needed" without providing any examples of rulesets that don't work triggers suspicions. I don't want the eventual example from my answer to become "one more tutorial that doesn't fit", but I'm sure that if the OP will post a ruleset for ufw that doesn't work for him, other SF readers will be able to tell him what's wrong with them.

comment How to detect a hidden process in linux?
"I am no system administrator, but I was brought onto the team to resolve the situation" - this is priceless. To clear the things up: your question is perfectly OK. Your real-life situation is not. Whoever decided to involve you is wrong.

comment Am I being spied on my messenger?
@Tim Meers: if you are on a corporate network it's still called being spied on, even if it is mentioned explicitly in the corporate policy. A sane policy would just prohibit instant messaging at work for personal use, if the employer considers this a problem.

If you are asking which Linux distro you should be running, you are certainly not ready to run your own web server.

comment Ubuntu: How to add an iptables rule that UFW can't create
ufw is one of those "what you see is all you get" things that make it easier for newbies. If you need to do more than it can do, consider switching to iptables completely. That "working really well for me" is a good proof that you can try something (iptables) more complicated (but also more flexible).

comment How to log all remote destinations a networking process is exchanging data with?
Seems to be abandonware. Vanilla source without debian patches compiles on my Slackware 13.1, but when running it I see segfault reports related to it in syslog. It also seems to watch for TCP traffic only, while I need UDP too (but hey, it doesn't seem to work for me anyway, since it is segfaulting).

comment How to log all remote destinations a networking process is exchanging data with?
A complex app (like a daemon) could fork and spawn children. Also, threads are implemented in Linux as processes IIRC. Is strace smart enough to handle such edge cases correctly as well? Also, would stracing have a heavy impact on performance? I want to run an app the usual way and collect stats, so its performance better not be impacted badly by the inspecting logic (whatever would it be).
