comment expand hostnames to fqdn before calling ssh?
Well, I actually make custom launchers with some part that looks like ssh myname@myhost.widgetshop.com.

comment How do I assign unique IP addresses to home directories in Linux?
But that also necessitates altering the network ocnfiguration on the host. If you use name-based virtual hosts the users just assign their name to the same IP address (e.g. joe.server.com) and the HTTP server can map that to a different location. This is most common these days.

comment Is there a tool like 'route' in Linux to configure the forwarding entry (dst mac address --> interface)
@michael There is no "box" in Gentoo. ;-) YOU decide what is core and what is not. If you install iproute2 the openrc "core" will automatically use it.

@victor Interesting. Well that sounds a lot to me like regular bridging. The bridge will learn the MAC addresses on attached ports. I would be wary of adding static entries in large complex systems as these can lead to problems that are hard to track down later. If it were me, I would also take a hard look at why I think I need to do this, and there wasn't a way to just let normal learing behaviour and spanning tree do its thing.

@victor So the flow is part of an TCP/IP session? And there's no destination IP that you might just use a static arp entry for?

@michael iproute2 has been preferred, and net-tools obsoleted for many years. If any distro doesn't have it then they are really broken with regards to networking.

Sounds like ebtables is what you are looking for, but I haven't tried it.

In your crontab file put the environment variables up at the top. LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 and LC_CTYPE="de_DE.UTF-8".

comment How to use the hosts file to make google.com resolve to bing.com on a single machine
Why would you want to do that? Can't you just change the source of the request? Install a new default search provider?

comment Is RSA's SecureID anyless secure in light of the attacks exploiting them?
@ceejay My understanding of this issue is that some SecureID accounts have been stolen. I have not seen any mention of a weakness of the algorithms and/or exploit of them. Is that not the case?

comment What's actually requested when alias is set up in Apache with CNAME?
@chris, exactly, and why would the hostmaster set it to something other than the canonical host name?

comment What's actually requested when alias is set up in Apache with CNAME?
@chris, yes that's true. But it's usually set to the canonical name.

comment What's actually requested when alias is set up in Apache with CNAME?
One catch, that only sometimes matters but mostly with emailing, is the reverse lookup (from IP address) will get the canonical name. So the forward and reverse names won't match.

Be sure to fully qualify the CNAME by putting a final dot (.) at the end. default.mydomain.com.

comment How to allow the internet to view my website on http://192.168.x.x (IP address behind router)?
However, it may still not work if your router gets a dynamic IP address from the carrier. In other words, your external address can sometimes change. You may also want some kind of DNS entry to point to it by name.

comment Performance penalty of multiple IP's per network interface
I don't think you need to worry about that. Network contention is the limiting factor.

comment Monitoring VMware ESXi (free) vs. vSphere
@Red Tux No, ESXi uses an embedded Linux as console OS, not RHEL. Only ESX (non-i) has RHEL and full shell as console OS. The shell is ash, not full featured. You can get a shell, and enable ssh, but there is not very much you can do there.
