If you want to set up a transparent proxy, you need a proxy server software that supports it. That’s because a “captured” connection is different from how the browser would normally talk to a (regular) proxy. First, you install your proxy, Squid in this case, and verify it works as a regular proxy. Then, you set it to accept captured connections: ...

The most relevant norm is the RU (rack units). This is respected by all server PSUs. An 2U PSU will never fit physically in the position of a 1U PSU. Weight is not relevant. X x Y are usually 225-230 x 100 while Z is the size RU-related.

Your system is probably using NFS. The NFS client implementation creates these directories when a file is removed, but still in use by an application. From http://nfs.sourceforge.net/#faq_d2: A. Unix applications often open a scratch file and then unlink it. They do this so that the file is not visible in the file system name space to any other ...

You might be experiencing the port assignment conflict. Make sure that your web application and Remote Desktop service are not using the same TCP port. The default port assigned to RDP is 3389.

The answer is a bit more complicated than some of the answers have made it out to be. When you perform a DNS lookup you MUST get an IP address (A record for IPv4, AAAA for IPv6). You have to be able to open a socket over TCP/IP to communicate or the whole thing fails. That address may represent a server or it might represent a load balancer. It could even ...

Web server has the concept of the host container (here is the documentation for Tomcat, for instance). Multiple host containers can be configured for the same box/ip address, servicing multiple domains. Containers have independent working directories, authentication realms, log directories and things the like. The server finds the relevant container for the ...

As from what I understand the DNS link the domain name with the IP address of the server the website is stored on, does that mean each server can only hold one website? First, you need to understand that there are a number of distinct concepts here. Web site, a group of web pages that form a coherent whole. IP address, a numerical address (32-bit for ...

I have this explanation for non-tech people. Jack, Jill and Joe live at a dormitory, and they don't have cellphones. In the phonebook, they are all listed with the same number. (A-record) You dial the number, and somebody picks up the phone; you say "I'd like to speak to Jill", and you get her on the line. Instead of an A-record (A phonenumber/IP-adress)...

Using DNS you can assign as many names to an individual IP address as you want (in your hosts file you may simply separate each name with spaces, for example). Using a DNS server you may also assign multiple IP addresses to a single name. It is not limited to a one-to-one relationship. A web server knows which site to serve by examining the requested URL. ...

Basically: the browser includes the domain name in the HTTP request, so the webserver knows which domain was requested and can respond accordingly. HTTP requests Here's how your typical HTTP request happens: The user provides a URL, in the form http://host:port/path. The browser extracts the host (domain) part of the URL and translates it into an IP ...

IMHO you should pay great attention to those points at least: be very careful about software security updates to have vulnerabilities patched as they are discovered, especially around Apache and public web apps you can run on (blog, wiki ...) prefer to use non-standard tcp ports to be a bit less targetted by bots disable ping answers on your modem be very ...

If you only have port 80 forwarded you shouldn't be much concerned, but it depends on your webserver. For instance if you have websait with mysql you should always use strong passwords and instal mod_security because there are many sql injection methods that if they succeed, the attacker will gain access to your ubuntu server (i assume it is on the local ...

There are a couple things going on at once here: The default Puppet Master running using WEBrick is the not production-ready service. The default Puppet Master running using Rack and Apache is the production-ready service. The Puppet Server is a newer project, designed to replace the default Puppet Master, and is production-ready.

You could use something like ngrok for this. Install it and run: ngrok http 8080 And it will give you a unique subdomain that you can use to access your server. No port forwarding or anything of that sort required.

nslookup test.ddns.net responds with 127.0.0.1, which is the localhost. Therefore you're not even sending packets over your home network, but only inside the computer you're working on. I tried it like this test.ddns.net/test/test.html But i get "website not reachable". This is because you're running your server ion port 443 and 8080, not port 80. You ...

I created my site using Powershell, so I added the following to create the exact folder based on the Site ID. Import-Module WebAdministration $iisAppName = "MySite" $site = Get-ItemProperty IIS:\Sites\$iisAppName $folderName = "W3SVC" + $site.id #Create a folder based on the actual site id $iisLogPath = "C:\MyLogFolder" $folderPath = Join-Path $...

The reason your external IPv6 IP (the one that looks something like like XXXX:XXXX:XXXX::) doesn't work is because of the way IPv6 works. Take this address for example: 2607:5600:52c:1::. This address is globally routable, and in fact, that address belongs to me. Now We have an IPv6 address, and we want to connect on, say... port 1000. The URIs we ...

The root directive can be used to construct simple physical paths where the URI forms the last part of the path. You can map a URI like /newapp/resource.css using root to something like: /path/to/tomcat/webapp/newapp/resource.css Using a root /path/to/tomcat/webapp; statement. If you must map the URI to a physical path that does not contain the entire ...

The time switch between booting "bare-metal" installs of different os's has nothing to do with partitioning. Partitioning has more to do with disk storage formats, security and organization. It can speed things up in the sense that your data is not scattered across an entire disk when you only really need a portion of the disk at a time. An alternative ...

Virtualization is the only way to do what you want. You may take a look for XEN, perhaps para-virtualization is the way you want to go.
