01:00<FluffyFoxeh>Ikaros: yeah, how do you see port scans? aside from watching wireshark or something
01:00*dcraig tickles fluffyfoxeh around a bit with a large basslet
01:00-!-mode/#linode [+l 350] by ChanServ
01:00*dcraig scans ur ports
01:01<FluffyFoxeh>oh baby
01:01<Ikaros>FluffyFoxeh because my software firewall on my PC alerts me when it blocks incoming traffic. I am of course using a router in front of my LAN with its firewall enabled, the scans I pick up are basically anything that's forwarded to my PC specifically. I maintain 3389 because I do work remotely often, for example.
01:02*dcraig syn flood sending cookies
01:02<FluffyFoxeh>I see
01:02<dcraig>I welcome all incoming traffic
01:03<dcraig>there is always a place for your packets at
01:03<Ikaros>I also maintain a few other open communication ports to my PC, as these host services that specific systems access as well regularly.
01:03<FluffyFoxeh>how do I make Firefox ignore HSTS and connect anyway. I realize that's directly contrary to the point of HSTS but I want to access the site
01:03<dcraig>use chrome :D
01:04<FluffyFoxeh>oooh chromium does let me
01:04<millisa>FluffyFoxeh: if your firewall supports it (many do),you can dump those type of failures to a syslog server
01:04<dcraig>sure thing boo
01:04<Ikaros>millisa heck even my ISP-provided router has a facility to do just that.
01:05<millisa>some of the consumer home router/firewalls support it now even
01:05<FluffyFoxeh>that's cool. I wonder if mine does
01:05<Ikaros>But yeah
01:06<Ikaros>My router GUI doesn't permit me to specify exactly which hosts to forward the traffic for on a given forwarding that's where the software firewall comes in. I use the software firewall to do that.
01:06<Ikaros>After all I don't want 3389 open to the entire internet.
01:06-!-zivester [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:07<FluffyFoxeh>my router can send an email with logs. that's not quite ideal though
01:07<Ikaros>IPv6 firewalling, is provided by the gateway server.
01:07<Ikaros>So I don't worry about that.
01:07-!-mode/#linode [+l 349] by ChanServ
01:07<FluffyFoxeh>lol "DoS Protection"
01:07<FluffyFoxeh>yeah right
01:08<FluffyFoxeh>(my home router has a checkbox for this in the settings)
01:08<Ikaros>Eh. I think that's just a shortcut for turning on certain features in one go
01:09<Ikaros>Like mine will institute rate limiting and filtering out ICMP and the like.
01:09-!-descender [~heh@2406:3003:200b:19:f00b:38c4:fab3:d351] has joined #linode
01:09-!-descender is "Chong Kai Xiong" on #linode
01:09<FluffyFoxeh>okay yeah it's an option that allows you to use flood filtering
01:09<FluffyFoxeh>DoS Protection - Enable or Disable the DoS protection function. Only when it is enabled, will the flood filters be enabled.
01:10<FluffyFoxeh>and then it's got ICMP, UDP, and TCP SYN flood filtering
01:10<Ikaros>lol TCP SYN
01:10-!-mode/#linode [+l 350] by ChanServ
01:10<FluffyFoxeh>I assume that's something designed to fill up connection tables?
01:11<FluffyFoxeh>SYN flooding that is
01:12<dcraig>all I know is the antidote is to "send cookies"
01:12<millisa>vanilla wafers?
01:12<dcraig>man it's been forever since I had a vanilla wafer
01:13<Ikaros>FluffyFoxeh: That's basically it, holding open half-open connections by sending a large number of SYN requests, often times with spoofed IPs or by simply just not returning an ACK to the server, and instead sending a new SYN, rinse-and-repeat.
01:14<Ikaros>Since by design TCP will wait a considerable amount of time for an ACK back from the client in response to its SYN-ACK
01:15<Zimsky>Ikaros: ACK ACK ACK ACK ACK
01:16<dcraig>Zimsky, I think ur blocked by Ikarosfirewall
01:17<Zimsky>more like ACKaros

04:55<Ikaros>The one thing that sucks about having a day off work...finding something to occupy the time.
04:57<Zimsky>you could just shitpost on irc like I do

06:38<@jhaas>je: If you're seeing 5xx errors as grawity mentioned, that's very unlikely to be on our end. In most cases that's an internal software problem with PHP/MySQL/etc.

06:52<rob`>is there anyway to pay in £ rather than $?
06:55<Zimsky>if you're using a visa card with a bank, they'll probably convert from GBP to USD at their exchange rate
06:55<Zimsky>or mastercard for that matter
07:00<hawk>Based on the question I would have guessed that was specifically what they wanted to avoid
07:01<hawk>(That exchange rate is often "not great" and there's often a fee associated with them doing the exchange in the first place.)
07:09<rob`>yes, correct. I used to use linode a year ago but always got stung on the visa conversion plus an additional 1£ fee for each transaction from lloyds which started to add up.
07:11<rob`>I want the cheapest $5 VPS but to pay in £ ideally or in such a way that minimises the costs
07:12<Zimsky>load up a card with multiple years worth of USD for it?
07:12<@sjacobs>a credit/debit card is required for the initial deposit. after that you can deposit funds into the account with paypal.
07:12<@sjacobs>i don't know if paypal is better or worse, though, in that situation.
07:13<Zimsky>they're on par with bank exchange rates
07:13<Zimsky>but don't charge a fee iirc
07:17<@sjacobs>ah, their user agreement says it is an additional 2.5% on top of the exchange rate.
07:27<Zimsky>well shit
07:29<grawity>hmm I heard Revolut has good exchange rates
07:29<grawity>they provide a credit card number for free
07:30<Zimsky>sjacobs: could I prepay in gold bars
07:31<Zimsky>like, if I brought them to the office

14:08<TW__>Does linode provide a free email account(s) for a server package?
14:08<@scrane>We don't provide email accounts, but you can use a Linode to host your own email server.
14:09-!-mode/#linode [+l 357] by ChanServ
14:10<TW__>I am hosting, but my email account at my old hoster ( is not receiving email. Godaddy support said I would have to remove the *.GOOGLE.COM MX records. Godaddy servers are at the bottom of the list.
14:11<@scrane>Hrm... I may be missing what you are trying to accomplish. It sounds to me like you have your email for the domain set up through Gmail, yes?
14:12<TW__>My linode domain is and my Godaddy email is I would like to have an email address with my domain name. How should I do this?
14:12<synfinatic>sounds like you are using google for email, but for a custom domain?
14:13<TW__>I didn't add the Google servers to the MX records. I assumed that was done by
14:14<synfinatic>you'll have to do it yourself via the linode console.
14:14<TW__>The 1st MX is ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
14:14<synfinatic>i assume you've updated your domain's records to point at linode's DNS servers?
14:15<@scrane>We wouldn't add anything to the domain zone. So if you don't want to use Google, you can remove those MX records and point them to GoDaddy's.
14:15<TW__>My server was recently migrated as part of a server migration. I did not initiate it.
14:15<@scrane>It sounds like you've followed this guide:
14:17<TW__>Hmm? I don't remember doing that. I did test out Google Apps about a month ago, but didn't see any advantage.
14:17<TW__>So I can remove the *.GOOGLE.COM MX records?
14:17<@scrane>Yeah, you can remove those without issue
14:17<@scrane>And use the ones GoDaddy suggested, and you should get email sent to the GoDaddy email address.
14:18<synfinatic>if you're not reading email via gmail, then you definitely don't want those MX records
14:19<TW__>Thanks Eugene. I do read email via gmail. I forward the to my gmail account for convenience.
14:19<@scrane>Do you forward via Pop3 or IMAP, I assume?
14:20<TW__>I host subdomains for an application I wrote. The app sends customers email using addresses with the main domains that I host their sub-domain.
14:22<TW__>I think Godaddy is using IMAP. I just configured my account to forward to my gmail account.
14:22<@scrane>Okay, that makes sense, then. Yeah, you'll want to remove the Google MX records from the account

22:31<Frankz>Do you know also if the Database ports can be opened to all IP's (I know it's not safe, but I have a specific requirement here)
22:32<millisa>Linode doesn't filter access to your system; you'd have control of what can and can't get to any of the ports.

23:03<marshwallow>nl UNCONN 4352 0 4:20226 *
23:04<marshwallow>So, there's a process listening at port 20226.
23:04<marshwallow>How should I handle that?
23:07<marshwallow>I mean, I can simply open the ports I would like to be opened (say, SSH and HTTP), but I'd like to be able to do something useful with ss output as well :P.
23:07<@sjacobs>marshwallow: (the netid = nl) that isn't going to be an open port to others.
23:07<@sjacobs>i find `ss -tulpn` to be a bit more effective.
23:08<millisa>personally, I find the output of 'netstat -tulpn' to be easier to read

23:09<@sjacobs>except for the line wrapping it does. it always wraps. no matter my terminal size.
23:11<marshwallow>millisa: I personally prefer netstat as well, as it gave me human-readable output with -plunt (same thing as -tulpn, just more phonetic?), but netstat was labeled outdated on a SO question, which made me reconsider ss.
23:11*millisa is outdated.
23:11<@sjacobs>yeah. new CentOS 7 iso's don't come with netstat, so it is happening.
23:12<millisa>it doesn't? i guess I must install it everytime without thinking
23:12<@sjacobs>as of the release a week or two ago.
23:12<Ikaros>Indeed, and I've not seen it installed by default either on my end.
23:13<marshwallow>Um ... but ... -plunt doesn't list active UDP ports, only TCP.
23:14<@sjacobs>interesting. that is what i am seeing as well.
23:14<marshwallow>BTW, second that for the wrapping thing. My terminal window is 2300+ px wide, and it's still not wide enough :P.
23:15<@sjacobs>it fits to the terminal size (very poorly). there are stackoverflows dedicated to making it not wrap.
23:15<@sjacobs>marshwallow: `ss -ulpn` shows me my listening udp ports
23:16<@sjacobs>hard to understand why it wouldn't show up when asking for both.
23:18<millisa>weird that you aren't seeing udp... `ss -tulpn` I see both udp and tcp
23:18<marshwallow>Maybe I just don't have UDP services
23:19<dwfreed>does it print anything if you do 'ss -ulpn' ? if not, then you don't
23:19<marshwallow>Yup, nothing.
23:20<dwfreed>I will also confess to being stuck in netstat, mostly because what I use it for, there are no real issues
23:20<millisa>I had to look; I do indeed install net-tools in my initial ansible script that I use on everything...
23:21<marshwallow>netstat it is then :).
23:21<marshwallow>Even though it is a vi vs. nano thing, but ...
23:22<millisa>well if we can talk you into doing outmoded/outdated things, could I interest you in a bit of `cat foo.txt|grep bar` ?
23:23<marshwallow>I've been doing that since ... ever! :D
23:23<marshwallow>Though it seems like grep `str` `path` is the way to go :P.

23:26<marshwallow>Oh well :D.
23:26<marshwallow>nc -u or just nc?

23:27<dwfreed>sjacobs: what if you leave off the '-t'
23:28<marshwallow>Different outputs, ergo, someone must be wrong ... ss?
23:28<@sjacobs>then it just doesn't show that first "Netid" column
23:28<Zimsky>dwfreed: then you play a round of gold
23:28<Zimsky>foiled by my own typo
23:28<Zimsky>dwfreed's going to punch me some day
23:28<millisa>works for me?
23:29<dwfreed>I think it's a bug in older ss
23:29<dwfreed>I can reproduce it in 14.04, but not 16.04
23:29<marshwallow>I dig the pastebin address.
23:30<marshwallow>So no objective reason to not use ss :P.
23:30<millisa>it'll justify that large resolution monitor so you can fit it in without wrapping
23:30<Zimsky>what about lsof -i -n
23:31<Zimsky>seems to require root on debian 7 though
23:31<marshwallow>Don't they all?
23:32<dwfreed>neither lsof nor ss require root, you're just limited in what you will see

23:32<Zimsky>lsof won't
23:32<millisa>or at least the version I'm running does
23:32<@sjacobs>can confirm. switched to a box with up to date ss and it works.
23:32<Zimsky>conversely, if you run lsof -i on darwin, it'll show you everything
23:32<Zimsky>even without root
23:33<@sjacobs>and netcat also required a -p flag for the port.
23:33<dwfreed>lsof goes by way of looking for file descriptors from /proc/<pid>/fd first, then parsing the /proc/net tables to collate fds to sockets
23:34-!-mode/#linode [+l 351] by ChanServ
23:34<Zimsky>I personally prefer lsof over netstat on darwin though
23:34<dwfreed>netstat on darwin is annoying
23:34<dwfreed>because it's bsd netstat, not linux
23:34<Zimsky>I find the result is cleaner
23:34<Zimsky>ヽ( 。ヮ゚)ノ
23:34<marshwallow>I'm new to all this, but ss is not really winning my fancies :P.
23:35<Zimsky>haven't we prattled on about ss before, dwfreed
23:35<dwfreed>ss can be information overload
23:38<marshwallow>I see mysqld in my lsof -i -n output, any way to make it go away from there without killing localhost administration?
23:39<marshwallow>it decently rejects non-localhost clients when ufw lets it go, but still provides a response to them.
23:40<millisa>you want mysql to just listen on localhost?
23:40<millisa>bind-address I think?
23:40<marshwallow>checked SHOW VARIABLES. bind-address is, not
23:42<marshwallow>I've found on the internets that means it's accepting connections indiscriminately. only localhost.
23:44<dwfreed>you can make listen on a unix socket instead of a network socket, but you will need a modern ssh client (or some hacks with something like socat) to forward the unix socket over an ssh connection
23:44<dwfreed>lsof -i -n will show *all* network sockets, including localhost
23:48<marshwallow>but still, it does a little chit-chat (throws a "ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 104" error) even with non-localhost clients. any way to lock that down too?
23:49<marshwallow>I mean, even if it rejects, that response means it's listening, no?
23:53<millisa>I think you might have something else happening? I just tried a fresh mysql install, set the bind-address to and mysql doesn't answer on the public IP, even when I am connecting from the local system.
23:54<marshwallow>not at all?
23:54<marshwallow>not even an error message?

23:55<millisa>the mysql client gives an error, sure, but it's that it can't connect. not any different than if I just pointed it at some random IP
