Subject: Linux Mint 13 Screenshot Tour

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The highlight of this edition is the latest Xfce 4.10 desktop, which features the following improvements: online documentation; application finder; multiple rows and deskbar mode in the panel; actions plugin; MIME type editor; single-click operation, automated background image cycling and thumbnail rendering on the desktop; edge-tiling in the window manager. In the past, the xfapplet plugin made it possible for Xfce users to run GNOME applets within the Xfce panel. After talking to the MATE and Xfce developers, we updated this plugin and it now supports MATE applets. Among the many MATE applets that can now run in Xfce, mintMenu is probably the most popular.

Subject: sslh – a ssl/ssh multiplexer for Linux

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Sometimes you have some firewall that don’t allows you to accept connection other than some specific ports let’s say that you can connect on your VPS or remote server only on the ports 80 (http) and 443 (https), but you need a port also for ssh to manage your vps/server but the port 443 is used by your Web server with its https protocol, so what can you do? This is where sslh comes in. It’s a really simple tool that wraps incoming connections to a port and then depending on protocol redirects it onto sshd back on port 22, or to your web server on localhost:443.
