This is caused because the user is running as qemu for virt-resize and if qemu does not have privileges to read from the source and write to the destination, it will fail with the below. So either change the uid of qemu or change the ownership of the source and target.

This is not about using ssh as a proxy, but rather, using a proxy when you are SSHing to another host and using ProxyCommand (where we normally use nc as our proxy tool).
In newer versions of nc the syntax has changed to the following:
ssh -o ProxyCommand="nc -x 127.0.0.1:1234" %h %p user@host
The format must be like above in newer nc versions.
Just be sure to change the 1234 to the port of your SOC........
If you just do a normal chown user.user somedir it won't work. You will see the ownership is still the previous owner.
How To Change Ownership Of Symlink:
The simplest part is just adding the -h which means no dereference so it applies the ownership on the symlink and does not try (and fail) to change ownership of the dereferenced symlink destination.

This is not so much of a vi error as it is a physical filesystem error in the sense that the file you are trying to write to is a symlink and the destination doesn't exist or for some other reason is inacessible.
So vi is tellng you "you're writing to a symlinked file and the file the symlink points to cannot be written to". This is especially highlighted byt he fact that if you are using wq! to write and you still get the error.........
The easiest way is to use SSHand DD or a combination of netcat. SSHwill be a little slower due to encryption but is the most secure way (on two older systems the average clone speed is about 40-50MB/s). This is also OS independent as it doesn't matter what the source OS is because you are literallly cloning the drive so you retain the partition table and settings.

The old MBR 512 bytes partition table is no longer valid if you are using GPT.
To copy a GPT table with dd to another disk do it like so:
Below sda is the source disk and destination disk is sdb (change to meet your needs).

You can also use dd to backup your partition table like normal but with the bs of 1536
Using Apache 2.2 and PHP5.6 PHPBB3 is very slow to respond. Actually for some reason it takes so long to even register a log entry in access_log as in several seconds or a few minutes later it shows up in Apache. All other vhosts and Apache access stops working and freezes until the request to access PHPBB3 slowly completes.
It seems to randomly be slow if you stop using it whether for posting or reading the forums. I've migrated to different machines including........
You can actually just pass multiple "-L" statements to achieve this.
An example is as below:
ssl -L 80:192.168.10.5:80 -L443:192.168.10.5:443 -L2068:192.168.10.5:2068 -L 8192:192.168.10.5:8192 email@example.com
The above essentially is saying forward ports 80,443,2068,8192 to the remote IPof 192.168.10.5 (even though it is behind NAT). Essentially SSH will do the NAT part even if the........
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.........
You have dual NICs and you disable NIC1 which uses 192.168.1.1 as its gateway. With NIC2 you enable it/connect it to another network which also has the gateway 192.168.1.1
Everything will work fine at this point.
When switching back to NIC1 even with NIC2 disabled and even unplugged, the OS basically can't pick up the new/updated ARP entry of the old device for 192.168.1.1 and perhaps thinks it is a security risk or spoof of some sorts and blocks i........

libguestfs tools howto guide for managing virtual machine images.
libguestfs-tools aka guestfs tools has a lot of tools that make this very easy for you. You can easily mount partitons from an image with some of the commands below.
To mount a partition
#mount the kvmuser102821.img image and the /dev/sda1 partition from it to the local directory "mount"
guestmount -a kvmuser102821.img -m /dev/sda1 mount
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -m tcp -d 192.168.2.1/32 --dport 3389 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.168.5.2:3389
iptables v1.4.7: can't initialize iptables table `nat': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
The above is often because you don't have the correct modules loaded on the hostnode or enabled for the container but in some cases it's actually a weird openvz setting.
-A PREROUTING -d 188.8.131.52/32 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 1050 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.168.1.50:3389
The above forwards port 1050 on IP184.108.40.206 to 192.168.1.50 port 3389 (you can obviously edit things to meet your needs).........

This is important if you need public access to internal IPs such as at your office and don't want to use a VPN just to SSHinto different servers:

The first thing you need to remember is not to check from the same host/server itself. This is a silly mistake I made, the reason is that many mailservers and especially postfix are configured to allow relaying from the localhost/same host. If you do that you'll get a false positive.

One of the purposes of rsync is to backup whole filesystems and archive them but how can you do that properly and restore things to normal if all permissions and ownerships are not preserved from your root filesystem?

It supports SSL (but passes the request to the destination server unencrypted) and even the Apache log format. Pound is very simple, fast a........
