I am planning on running a Virtual Private Network from my Fedora
firewall out to a UML virtual colo (running RH9) at another site.
That site will be the place I present services to the world;
httpd, ssh, sftp, smtp. This is to comply with the "no servers"
and dynamic ip restrictions on my Comcast connection to the net;
if my firewall always drives an outbound connection to the
colocation site, I am not worried about changes of ip address,
and I am not opening any inbound ports.
There are a number of options for the VPN - the most attractive
are cipe ( http://sites.inka.de/sites/bigred/devel/cipe.html )
and FreeSwan ( http://www.freeswan.org/ ), though I am told that
one can do all this through an ssh tunnel. I would rather have
simple and secure than super-duper; I have plenty of bandwidth,
and will send outbound http and smtp from the firewall, so the
main bandwidth user will be incoming spam/b/b/b/b mail.
Anyone have some experiences to share about setting up VPN? Is
there anything about either cipe or FreeSwan that is likely to
break with FC1 or FC2?

Looking the journalctl (command journalctl -xb), I found (in thejournalctl
) these lines in red color :
ATA2:00: link is slow to respond....
ATA200: SRST failed (erro 16)
That seem indicate that it is a problem to access the HDs..
I found a possible solution to the problem in this post:
There is wrote that :...the problem can depend by the physic set up of the
HD (as "master", "slave", "single drive", ...): this set up can be done by
changing the position of a jumper on the HD...
I know that, in the past time, the HDs had to be set physically in this
way.., but recently I never heart anymore that the modern HD need this
So actually I don't care anymore of the configuration of the HDs
(my HD is Toshiba 1 TB that I bought few mounts ago).
I would like to have a confirmation that what I read in the post is only an
obsolete information and, in any case, I would like to know also what I can
do to go around in my problem..
>From the command line: ls /dev/sd* I get:
give me this input :
/dev/sda /dev/sda1 /dev/sda2 /dev/sda5 /dev/sdb /dev/sdb1
I used to use netcat to check if a particular host is up or if I have
internet connection before I run a few scripts. I would use the -z
option in particular. But now I see that has been removed:
$ nc -z imap.gmail.com 993 && sync-my-email.sh
ncat: invalid option -- 'z'
Here is the excerpt from the old manual page:
-z Specifies that nc should just scan for listening daemons, without
sending any data to them. It is an error to use this option in
conjunction with the -l option.
Any ideas what happened to it? What can I use as replacement?
Thanks for any ideas.

Most messages received from this fedora list are labelled junk by
Thunderbird. This is even though I whitelisted "From" =
"users-request(a)lists.fedoraproject.org". Actually, I have this problem
both in my Fedora-21 and my windows-7 systems. Any ideas? Surely
messages from this list are not junk!
Failed to install F22 on a MacBook Air 7,1 end of July. I think the
problem was coming from the new SSD drive/system which does not have a
proper driver yet. The machine is not mine but I'll be doing the
Any idea, hint or news about this?
Hello, sorry for lamer question:
w/ F22 I am not able anymore to drug konsole tab to change their order, often I
need to have 2 tabs one after the other
It's a feature anymore available or should I drink less wine?
PS: I do drink water only :P
In a moment of insanity, I installed google-chrome on fedora21. The
Chrome installation made chrome the default and changed the
network-protocol handlers in Thunderbird to 'chrome'. I have since
removed google-chrome and manually edited the entries in TB back to
firefox. I think I have properly set firefox as the default browser.
BUT, when I click on a link in an email in tbird, Nothing happens (even
if firefox is open).
Getting tired of copying link location, and pasting into the address bar.
Can anyone assist? My google-fu produces nothing.
