21:07<Mitya>Hi. Dows linode has any restrictions, like vultr etc on server amount? A tried one, but it sayed "you have riched 5 servers, choose another plan. Even aruba allows 30 servers at on profile, buti need some more for a short time...
21:07<Mitya>How much can i take on linode?
21:08<millisa>Linode told you 'you have reached 5 servers'? or Vultr?
21:09<millisa>I don't think I've seen any published linode limits like that.
21:09-!-brians_ [~brian@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:10<Peng_>I think there are limits depending on your account age and billing history
21:10<Mitya>well, i'll try, thank you!
21:10<Peng_>If you run into them, you can file a support ticket and ask about it
21:12<Mitya>vultr also have no public (at least notable) data about restrictions, good thing i did not charged that account with money, heh
21:13<Peng_>If you have *no* restrictions, people could run up a $100,000 bill in a few hours with a stolen credit card
21:13<Peng_>Hosting companies have to balance risk
21:20<Mitya>I understand, but what you can do if you are not a criminal. Maybe a full verification or something... There are 3ds and other secure things in 2020, many ways to verify the card and the person
21:21<Mitya>But i just get being "restricted" several days for now
21:36<@mcintosh>Mitya: the default limit for new accounts is 20
22:02<Mitya>Is there a way to pass the limit? Support ticket or somethong?
22:03<@mcintosh>Mitya: if you have legit reasons to need more than 20 active VMs a ticket is usually a safe bet
22:05<Mitya>Ok, thank you. Took one,testing now. If the VM is good enought - will create a ticket. Thank you
22:09<Cromulent>mcintosh: just out of interest does that limit change as your account gets older or is it fixed until a ticket is opened?
22:11<@mcintosh>Mitya: no problem
22:11<@mcintosh>Cromulent: it increases from that automatically, one time, and otherwise requires a manual request to be increased
22:11<Cromulent>ah thanks for the info
22:20<Peng_>One of my Linodes is using 50% CPU because of an SSH scanner. Oops.
22:21<Peng_>Wait a minute, it's an RFC 1918 IP address.
22:21<Peng_>The CPU usage is coming from INSIDE THE HOUSE
22:23<Peng_>anyone with a Dallas Linode with a private IP enabled wanna check their logs? :D
22:23-!-Redentor [~Redentor@2600:3c01:e000:20c::1002] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:32<millisa>looked on a dallas linode with private ip that would allow ssh on it; didn't see anything interesting
22:34<millisa>go for it
22:54<Abi12>Peng_: I have 4 log entries blocked from today @ 07:34 UTC on port 22 from an address.
22:55<Peng_>That's about when I got an initial connection.
22:56<Peng_>The intensive scan started around 20:00.
22:57<millisa>I did have the IP Peng_ saw on two linodes, one hit each at 07:11:32 UTC and 07:26:49 UTC
22:58<Abi12>Yeah. The IP from my logs is the same as what Peng ( and millisa ) logged.

23:06<Peng_>I sent an email to abuse@
23:06<Peng_>actually two
23:07-!-gparent [] has joined #linode
23:07-!-gparent is "g" on #linode
23:08<LouWestin>Where or what logs would those show up in?
23:08<Abi12>If you have ufw. You can check in /var/log/ufw.log.
23:09<dwfreed>also look in /var/log/auth.log
23:09<millisa> /var/log/secure on centos/redhat-likes
23:09<LouWestin>Ok. I switched back to directly to iptables on Debian.
23:18<Abi12>hmmm I have a dynamic ARP entry on my second server for that same ip. My logging was disabled though. It must've hit everybody..
23:19<dwfreed>probably scanned the whole /17

23:32-!-GXL is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
23:33<GXL>do you offer free migration?
23:33<LouWestin>like DNS or ?
23:33<millisa>They have some form of migration if you pay for the managed offering
23:33<GXL>how much is managed plan?
23:33<millisa>(it's definitely not 'free')
23:34<GXL>site migration
23:34<LouWestin>Starts at $100 I belive for managed
23:34<GXL>okay thanks!
23:34<GXL>also, is it okay to host porn?
23:34<millisa>Generally, if it's legal, it's ok
23:35<LouWestin>Some hosts actually don't allow any nudity.
23:35<millisa>Their AUP is here
23:36<LouWestin>Linodes policies are pretty much like Don't break the law or abuse our services. Otherwise you're g2g
23:37<millisa>You'll probably want to review the TOS, too -
23:47<GXL>okay thanks!
