00:04<gpd>I now find myself with 1xlinode, 1xG5, 2xGenericIntelServer, 1xHomeDesktopPC, 1xLaptop - all running Linux. Question: how do I manage my ssh keys and other crap? /me considers svn
00:05[~]gpd awaits - 'well i've got xxx servers more than you' posts
00:12<Battousai>well i've got xxx servers more than you
00:12<Battousai>even though xxx is not a number
00:17<fo0bar>well i've got more .xxx servers than you
00:17<gpd>!rr
00:17<linbot>*BANG* Hey, who put a blank in here?!
00:17[~]linbot reloads and spins the chambers.
00:17<fo0bar>even though .xxx was rejected by ICANN
00:18<gpd>the point was: how do you manage all your profile over multiple boxes
00:18<Battousai>!rr
00:18<linbot>Battousai: *click*
00:18<Battousai>damnit
00:18<gpd>[i am already dead]
00:18<Battousai>nfs
00:19<gpd> /op linbot
00:19<Battousai>or rsync perhaps

01:57<interferon>i killed a process that was listening on port 4005 about a half hour ago, but now whenever i try to start a server on the same port, i get an EADDRINUSE error
01:57<interferon>but nmap shows nothing listening on port 4005
01:58<Internat>yeah i had that problem when i was coding ages ago, if the program doesnt set a flag that says the file can be in use etc
01:58<Internat>do a lsof
01:59<Internat>and see if the port is still open in that i think
01:59<erikh>SO_REUSE?
01:59<Internat>not sure

02:49<@mikegrb>lolz
02:49<Internat>lol
02:50<Internat>isnt that kinda the point?
02:50<Eman>my isp doesnt need to see my traffic
02:51<Internat>suppose

04:51<alnr>are there any special restrictions with ports, such as 111 ?
04:52<Internat>depends what datacentre ur in, but im not sure there is a list of what is filtered
04:53<alnr>its looking like 111 is filtered even though I know my firewall should allow it (to a particular client)
04:53<Internat>yeah 111 is blocked
04:54<Internat>http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1167&highlight=blocked+ports
04:54<alnr>yeah i had a vageu memory of it :)
04:55<alnr>tx. i need to server some nfs, maybe I can make rpc be on another port. what a pita
04:56<alnr>serve
04:57<alnr>ping caker mikegrb
04:58<Internat>!ping caker
04:58<@linbot>pong
04:58<@mikegrb>hello
04:58<alnr>hi
04:59<alnr>was just trying to serve some nfs and ran into port 111 blockage. what could I do?
04:59<@mikegrb>NFS?
04:59<@mikegrb>best bet is VPN
04:59<@mikegrb>NFS isn't typically the kind of thing you want to do over the open internets
05:02<alnr>mikegrb: even with the various protections of hosts.allow and firewall etc?
05:02<alnr>or deny that is
05:02<@mikegrb>yeah it's less secure then ftp
05:02<@mikegrb>and I wouldn't run ftp over the internet
05:02<@mikegrb>unless you were making some files available to the public or some such
05:03<@mikegrb>(for ftp that is)
05:05<Internat>yeah plaintext passwords kinda suck
05:05<@mikegrb>har
05:05<@mikegrb>nfs doesn't have any passwords
05:05<@mikegrb>at least, not that I know of
05:06<Internat>i meant fo ftp
05:06<Internat>for*
05:06<alnr>i think i do have things covered (in firewall), enough to let one machine be an nfs client though. any way?
05:07<alnr>I would like to use the port :)
05:07<@mikegrb>we don't have any control over that
05:08<Internat>the datacentre filters it correct?
05:08<@mikegrb>yes
05:08<alnr>maybe rpc can run on another port?
05:09<alnr>also, any pointer on the vpn approach
05:10<@mikegrb>openvpn
05:10<alnr>ktx

08:38<warewolf>ok
08:39<Spads>crapto
08:39<warewolf>it's a dark omen when vmware server crashes your fileserver, and vmware-server-client crashes X on your desktop.
08:39<Spads>come on host28

08:46<sonorous>or did theplanet just have some sort of network outage?
08:46<warewolf>awesome
08:46<warewolf>I'm getting massive packet loss on host 47
08:47<warewolf>ok who pissed off who at theplanet
08:47<warewolf>50% packet loss
08:47<darkbeholder>im noticing some problems on 47 also lish isnt responding either
08:47<sonorous>I just had a server linked to an irc net that had ~400 users and now zero
08:47<sonorous>definitely some sort of out total outage :(
08:48<warewolf>lish is respinsive, but I'm just getting good packet loss
08:48[~]warewolf hits redstart in MTR
08:48<warewolf>looks like the packetloss is gone

08:52<warewolf>dude, it didn't last long
08:52<warewolf>and boxes didn't go down
08:52<warewolf>so I don't see what you're upset about
08:52<intuiworx-leonard>hi guys, just got on. We having a DDOS?
08:52<npmr>i cut off my vpn connection between my workstation and the domain controller
08:52<npmr>the workstation is totally frozen now and i need to restart it
08:52<warewolf>intuiworx-leonard: some pretty bad packet loss for a while, but it's gone now
08:53<intuiworx-leonard>ok, thanks
08:53<npmr>how's that for "nothing to be upset about", warewolf?
08:53<warewolf>no comment.
08:53<intuiworx-leonard>It was really slow for a few minutes and now everything is ok
08:53<npmr>and by "i" i meant "it"
08:55<intuiworx-leonard>what ended up happening, upstream bandwidth issues?
08:55<npmr>felt like a flapping route to me
08:55<warewolf>npmr: I only saw packet loss on my host, the hop before the host saw zero packet loss.
08:55<@mikegrb>npmr: DOS
08:55<npmr>really?
08:56<npmr>that widespread?
08:56<@mikegrb>yes
08:56<@mikegrb>well, it's one uplink
08:56<npmr>i see
08:58<warewolf>I suspect caker/mikegrb will be figuring out who/what the target of the DoS was, and will take the appropriate action in accordance with the Linode TOS.
08:58<intuiworx-leonard>mikegrb de N9URK
08:58<@mikegrb>it's already done
08:58<@mikegrb>nice

18:55<Griswald>I just like it because it can actually USE an hd, instead of a file on an hd
18:55<encode>Griswald: why dont you use the free vmware player instead?
18:55<Griswald>?
18:55<@mikegrb>or you could just install linux on the computer
18:55<encode>vmware is much better than virtual pc

18:57<encode>vmware can do that
18:57<Griswald>if I took the HD out and put it as main HD
18:57<Griswald>it would boot into linux
18:57<Griswald>=p
18:57<encode>yeah i know what you mean
18:57<Griswald>so VMWare Player can boot a physical HD?
18:57<Griswald>I never heard of that
18:57<Griswald>only heard about VMware virtual machines =)
18:58<@mikegrb>...
18:58<@mikegrb>virtual has nothing to do with the storage medium

18:58<Griswald>=p
18:59<Griswald>oh, yes, and...
18:59<Griswald>pie.
18:59<encode>well, you need a non-player vmware product to create the vmware configuration aka virtual machine
18:59<Griswald>bleh.
18:59<encode>you can use a trial vmware workstation for that
19:00<Griswald>I don't have it

19:00<encode>well, you can do it legally
19:00<Griswald>thats to morally ethical.

19:02<Griswald>=p
19:02<Griswald>is it possible to mount an ext3 partition in windows? :P
19:02<encode>yes
19:02<Griswald>I really just want to pull about 50gb of info off the hd
19:03<encode>if it doesnt need an fsck

19:03<Griswald>lol
19:03<Griswald>well
19:03<Griswald>when it complains
19:03<gpd>sorry i missed all the above - can you confirm: can you boot a native hd in vmware and vica verca?
19:03<Griswald>it tosses me into shell
19:03<Griswald>I can still mount the partition
19:03<Griswald>and access the data
19:03<encode>there is a driver you can use so that windows shows it as a normal drive
