12:56<Wang_hu>what mean is "Your account must be activated before you can use this endpoint"
12:56<millisa>If you just signed up, there's an activation that has to happen
12:57<millisa>You'll get several mails during the signup process
12:58<Wang_hu>but, i didn't
12:59<Wang_hu>i just received 3 mails
12:59<millisa>did any of those mails talk about activation or extra info they might need?
13:00<Wang_hu>No, they didn't
13:01<millisa>what did they say?
13:02<Wang_hu>two of them are useless, such as "congratulations" or "Linode Manager Trusted Device Added"
13:03<Wang_hu>the last one, it's to confirm the email.
13:03<millisa>and you confirmed the email?
13:04<Wang_hu>sure , i did
13:04<millisa>then you probably just need to wait for them to activate your account.
13:05<millisa>some trigger a manual review. they get to them relatively quick.

14:26<Wang_Hu>thank you very much.
14:26<Wang_Hu>i want to know, how can i login into the control panel
14:26<Wang_Hu>what's is my account and password
14:26<grawity>which control panel
14:27<grawity>the one where you start/stop/reboot the server, or the one where you configure apache/mysql/etc?
14:28<Wang_Hu>wait a minute
14:29<Wang_Hu>it's in the linodes
14:29<Wang_Hu>there is button below my server
14:30<Wang_Hu>it is "launch console"
14:30<Wang_Hu>i can't login in there
14:31<grawity>that's not really a control-panel login, that's a direct login to the server itself
14:31<grawity>so at first it wants the 'root' account, with ... whatever password Linode generated for you when you created it, IIRC
14:31<Wang_Hu>i want to know how to login in....
14:31<grawity>pretty sure it showed one when creating the linode
14:31<LouWestin>You need an ssh program like putty
14:32<grawity>if it didn't, 'Rescue' -> 'Reset Root Password'
14:32<Wang_Hu>i remember my password
14:32<Wang_Hu>but i don't know my account....
14:33<Wang_Hu>i forget what i have set.
14:33<grawity>brand new servers only have one account: "root"
14:34<Wang_Hu>i logged in

14:55<wang_hu>hi guys! where can i find my port number?
14:55<grawity>all of them
14:55<wang_hu>ok, i got it
14:56<dwfreed>the IP address you have is assigned only to you; you can use whatever ports you want
14:56<wang_hu>it's 22
14:56<grawity>you don't get a single port, you get a whole server and a whole IP address
14:57<LouWestin>Technically there’s over 65,000 ports
14:57<rnowak>whole grain addresses, healthy
14:58<dwfreed>65,535, to be exact
14:58<dwfreed>(port 0 is not valid on the wire)
14:59<LouWestin>Thanks. I was too lazy to look it up. lol
15:05<nate>Is that really a technically though or are we technically talking about only a specific protocol? What about if you're technically talking about ports available on UDP -and- TCP? Couldn't you technically say it's 65,535*2? And then what if you technically dive into re-use allowance??
15:05*nate just stops and waddles off to other things >.>

15:54<kngstr>hey all...
15:54<kngstr>linode newbie question
15:55<LouWestin>Good evening.
15:55<kngstr>just created a linode for hosting my web sites
15:56<kngstr>i chose private ip option. after further reading private ip is not public viewable.
15:58<LouWestin>192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x, and 172.16.x.x - 32 are private
15:58<kngstr>according to further reading .. there will be a charge for public ip
15:58<nuevu>kngstr: Every Linode comes with one public IPv4 address
15:58<LouWestin>You should have a public address too
15:59<LouWestin>Correction 172.16 - 172.31. Not 32
16:00<kngstr>in my dashboard under networking i see: and also private ip:
16:01<LouWestin>The 45 is public
16:01<kngstr>i'm assuming 45.33 = public ip
16:01<LouWestin>192.168 is private
16:01<kngstr>cool thx
16:02<LouWestin>And the other ranges i mentioned are private addresses
16:04<kngstr>@lou, Millisa, just needed to make sure. thank you..
16:04<LouWestin>Np. Also you’ll want to make sure the ports you need are open
16:05<LouWestin>22, 80, and 443 for a web server
16:05<LouWestin>The securing your linode guide should explain it
16:06<kngstr>i can do that in the console of 18.04
16:07<kharlan11>no dns? rip
16:07<kngstr>will skim through the guides
16:08<kngstr>just out of curiosity ? what do most folks in here use to manage DNS
16:09<kharlan11>manage dns?
16:09<LouWestin>You can either use IP tables or UFW. Ufw makes things a wee bit easier
16:09<LouWestin>I use Linodes name servers and set it up through thier control panel
16:10<kharlan11>I usually disable auto networking and use servers
16:10<LouWestin>Others run their own DNS servers
16:10<kharlan11>oh do you mean for your own domain? then yeah I use linode's nameservers.
16:12<kngstr>I'll have to look at linodes control panel for managing dns.
16:12<kngstr>anyone else in here using google to manage dns?

16:17<kngstr>thx all, I'm sure i will be back here with more questions
16:18<LouWestin>Np. Feel free to come back when needed
16:18<LouWestin>And welcome to Linode
16:19-!-eskimo|znc [] has quit [Quit: MELTING!]
16:20<kngstr>been hosting my sites from my house using ddns but comcast service just does not cut it. too much issues with uncontrolled outages
16:20<LouWestin>Ah, yeah plus your upload speed is severely crippled.
16:21<kngstr>yes, upload speed gets a thumbs down.
16:22<kngstr>then there is the 1tb cap for residential customers
16:23<LouWestin>There’s a cap here too, but you probably won’t exceed that unless you have heavy duty downloads
16:24<kngstr>comcast outages are my main concern.
16:25<kngstr>the five client websites i host don't exceed that limit
16:27<kngstr>thx again bye....

20:17<millisa>I am stupid - what do you mean? (I see '1TB XFER' in the manager when I add a linode - referring to something else?)
20:17<LouWestin>It’s listed under transfer
20:17<LouWestin>1 TB starting at then goes up per plan
20:18<millisa>Or do you mean 'it shows in the old manager, but not the new cloud manager'?
20:18<nyancat>I must be blind then
20:18<nyancat>new manager
20:19<millisa>That's about what I see. Except using the far superior 'dark mode'
20:20<nyancat>y'all got any of that unmetered transfer
20:20<nyancat>millisa: please educate me
20:20<nyancat>how do i become glorious
20:20<millisa>nyancat: little gear in the lower left. dark mode and compact mode are there.
20:20<nyancat>hot damn
20:22<millisa>the transfer is there in the types in the api ( so they probably could add it if you put in a request
20:24<millisa>There's a provide feedback link in the lower right of the new manager, or you could poke at them at
20:25<LouWestin>I only knew the transfer under pricing and plus seeing the meter. But thanks for bringing that up though
