Subject: How to Securely Transfer Files Between Servers with scp

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

If you run a live or home server, moving files between local machines or two remote machines is a basic requirement. There are many ways to achieve that. In this article, we talk about scp (secure copy command) that encrypts the transferred file and password so no one can snoop. With scp you don’t have to start an FTP session or log into the system.

Subject: Version control for your Linux /etc/ directory

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

One of the many advantages of Linux, UNIX, and similar operating systems is that everything is a file and that most of your configuration is done via text files, allowing you to easily read and write to them with any tool you choose. To monitor your configuration, you have many tools for automating configurations, providing you with detailed control over how your systems are configured. You can easily compare different versions of a configuration file to see any changes. Tracking specific configurations and changes over time allows you to:read more

Although I always have considered myself more insidethat paranoid camp than outside of it, I even have found myself stepping upmy game lately.

Subject: IBM gets a patent on “out-of-office” e-mail messages—in 2017

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

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is bringing light to what it calls a "stupefyingly mundane" patent on e-mail technology, given not to a patent troll hiding in a small office but to one of the world's largest technology corporations. IBM lawyers wrangled with the US Patent and Trademark Office for years over their bizarre and alarming alternative history, in which IBM invented out-of-office e-mail—in 2010. US Patent No. 9,547,842, "Out-of-office electronic mail messaging system" was filed in 2010 and granted about six weeks ago.

Subject: As the Software Supply Chain Shifts, Enterprise Open Source Programs Ramp Up

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

Today’s software supply chain is fundamentally different than it was only a few years ago, and open source programs at large enterprises are helping to drive that trend. According to Sonatype’s 2016 State of the Software Supply Chain enterprises are both turning to existing open source projects to decrease the amount of code they have to write, and increasingly creating their own open source tools.

Subject: What to Do After Installing Debian

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

Debian is not like most Linux distributions. The Debian installer is more thorough than most, and steers you unsubtly towards free software. As a result, configuring Debian after installation is unusual, too. Depending on your needs and preferences, post-installation setup can include steps necessary after installing any distributions, steps necessary for any Debian installation, and steps for using proprietary software.
