comment Why isn't 'ether proto \ip host host' a legal tcpdump expression?
Thanks for posting an answer! I should have come back here and referred to the question I later posted on the tcpdump-workers list. Here is the corresponding answer.

comment Lots of activity on port 9001 to Tor-related domains… How can I probe this?
Thanks, David. It's late in this corner of the world so I'm going to sleep. I freaked out and destroyed the VPS, and will rebuild it tomorrow. The extremely low bandwidth usage according to iftop supports your thesis. I will run your command tomorrow. Thanks again.

Thanks, David. This time I get telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused.

Hi Michael, thanks for your feedback. Just as with lsof, I get nothing.

Thanks for the detailed reply. (Your answer seems OK too, so upvoted.)

comment Recommended UNIX user for CMS access to MySQL
OK, thanks for clarifying. In attempting to separate privileges as much as possible, would you go as far as setting up a different MySQL user for each CMS site (ignoring for a moment modern multi-site options) that talks to MySQL?

comment Cross forwarding mail between two users in Postfix?
Thanks, that does it. I was hoping there would be a cleaner approach. It is disappointing that Postfix can't understand the original syntax... Thanks again.

comment spamassassin via procmail: .procmailrc moves spam messages, but /etc/procmailrc doesn't
Thanks for your suggestion (I didn't know about VERBOSE=yes...). I have included the resulting log entry. I believe procmail is trying to create/update the files almost-certainly-spam and probably-spam in the directory /var/mail/user (which is actually the fresh-mails mbox), instead of in user's home directory.

comment I want to use mail@mydomain, but user mail already exists (Debian 6)
Thanks. As I'm clearly a beginner, could anybody point me to documentation that explains why those components need to be users in a UNIX system?

Because mydomain is already my name.

comment How do you set up redundant servers?
Thanks a lot! I guess having redundant servers may be considered HA, but I wanted pointers about the technical aspects of server redundancy, which you provided very thoroughly. I by no means plan to get this in one afternoon... I just didn't know where to go to get started. Thanks again.

comment How do I configure the default virtual host return a 404 header in apache?
Thanks, that did it! Since it's clear my low level of expertise, I might add for my fellow newbies that the default server should appear first. (This took me a while to figure out!)

comment ISPs and reverse DNS lookups
Thanks for your answer (not enought reputation to upvote you). I'm clearly clueless about DNS architecture, but it seems to me unfair that the party that "rented" this IP address (even if it is just one IP) cannot make the IP -> domain mapping without interference. I will read enough about it to understand it... some day!

comment Can you control the host information returned by ping?
Thanks for your answer. (I'm not allowed to accept it yet.) I need to pick up some nice book on DNS... Out of curiosity, could the reverse DNS lookup resolve to the naked domain domain.com?
