Troubleshooting Client Connectivity Issues
The first step is to enable full logging in the Skype Client itself and then check the log on the client side. In Windows this normally means going to the Skype client "settings" and then "Enable Full Logging".
Below are the common errors you'll get with named AKA bind if your time is incorrect.
The simplest solution is to install and run ntpd to correct your system's time (install ntpd if it is not installed)
systemctl start ntpd
systemctl enable ntpd

This happens when you don't manually add your ssh key with ssh-add it is some weird new feature in SSH or Ubuntu/Debian that causes this weird problem.

So you restarted your router/dhcpd server or for some other reason you wonder why DHCP is not working on any of your clients?You go and check that named is in fact running fine.
But then you check /var/log/messages and see this error for everything hostname:

So I have a domain "testdomain.com".
Inside test domain.com's root is the following .htaccess:

When you visit anything other than root things work fine. Eg. if you visit http://testdomain.com/somedirfile.html
It will show the right error in /launch/........

It looks like the DSS option is not considered secure so when connecting from newer Linux systems to an older one you will get the above error.
It can be fixed (but you should consider upgrading your SSH daemon):

So you've got a responsive site with tables but it breaks them so anything not viewable on the screen is now cut off.
Here is a simple solution that will allow users to scroll horizontally so they can see the whole table:
iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -m addrtype --src-type LOCAL --dst-type LOCAL -p tcp --dport 3306 -j DNAT --to-destination ip.ip.ip.ip
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -m addrtype --src-type LOCAL --dst-type UNICAST -j MASQUERADE
sysctl -w net.ipv4.conf.all.route_localnet=1
Make sure you substitute "ip.ip.ip.ip" for your real public IP and also the "--dport 3306" for the port you want to forward.
Finally run the sysctl command and........

This is a simple fix but not a simple problem and it still doesn't make sense to me.
But in a nutshell if your target proxy server works fast when accessing directly over SSL then this may be your issue.
It seems SSL does not play nicely when the target proxy destination/host has a riduculously long key (such as 8192 bits long). Now this is normally not a problem, in fact the target server could be accessed with hardly any delay directly despite such a long key.........

Sipura / Linksys PAP/VOIP/SIP Adapter Issue

This happens all the time, you are reading from a textfile which has spaces eg:
If you do loop on it like this:

It will treat datainfo and 00 as two separate lines:

I backed up everything in the /mnt/sd_card directory thinking that some dataloss could occur for some reason but purposely left my microSDHC unbacked up thinking that "it won't touch that since it's external" and Samsung's and other manufacturers website even say this (that it won't be affected and not to worry etc).
Apparently I was wrong, my microSD was "undetected" and asked to be formatted after the upgrade (there goes 3-months worth of family photos). No........
I've encountered this problem before and I believe it may affect other drivers (I could test but I don't have time). This was happening on my custom Linux system with the pcnet32 driver.
pcnet32: eth0: transmit timed out, status 97fb, resetting (and some other kernel module tracing in dmesg)
Basically it means the card is connected (it shows connected in full duplex etc.. and recognized if the cable is disconnected too) but no packets can be sent or received........
I experienced this with CPanel's Exim after an auto-update (a Google of this error produces lots of complaints with few clear solutions). In this case I'll put the solution at the top.
Run /scripts/buildeximconf to rebuild the Exim config and it should be fine after that.

I really am a Linux fan but my comments here may not show it. Although I'm quite familiar with Linux CLI to administer servers, I find Linux GUI OS's like Ubuntu at times very clunky.
This is partially because there's no such thing as a "self-made" Linux from scratch where the UIwas designed by a single team. Linux is made up of several different projects that are generally completely separate and this lack of integratiion is a key issue that makes things f........

My XBOX's dashboard/firmware was from sometime in 2008 when I first bought the system. I mainly played using composite cables but at my brother in law's house we used HDMI. The very first time it worked, but then I bought some games that did some update and after that HDMI never worked.
The symptoms besides having on sound is that your XBOX will show PC monitor resolutions but won't have any option to say you have a 720P or 1080P display, this means the XBOX firmware is fa........
The folder I was trying to archive is about 72GB, but much like rsync at about 17GB it chokes because of the filesize. What's with so many common and essential Linux tools having such limitations? I guess it is likely that the authors never wrote their code with the idea that files would be so large but it's still very annoying. It's important to stay on top of these limitations on production servers because I didn't realize what happened until I checked the file with "........
Intel's Finnish FetishIntel's Finnish Fetish

Chipmaker Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) has successfully topped the personal computer market for decades. Breaking into related areas such as communications has been much difficult for the world's largest semiconductor maker. But a new partnership with Nokia (NYSE: NOK) could help to change that.
Intel's forays into cellular-phone and home-entertaiment-device chips have........
NewEgg is one of the few companies that stocks this great right angle 1U SATA power cable. I've purchased some no-name ones and they face the wrong way (towards the bottom of the chassis) which makes it worse/impossible than standard SATA connectors.
The price is high but if you're building a 1U server and want SATA disks and don't have much space (eg. the 1U Supermicro cases) then these are simply a must and........
I've tried to find a good sensible solution to cluster with and each technology has it's pros and cons and there is no perfect solution and I've found a lot of "exaggerations" in the applications, benefits and performance of these different filesystems.
