comment Trying to ssh into one server from two different networks results in two different RSA fingerprints
I tried connecting anyway, and ssh responded with PTY allocation request failed on channel 0. It definitely looks fishy.

comment Trying to ssh into one server from two different networks results in two different RSA fingerprints
They do have rules that block certain traffic going out, which is one of the reasons I was trying to use my dreamhost account as a proxy. I was expecting port 22 on external servers to be blocked, though, not transparently redirected to who-knows-where. So you say it's possible their firewall is hijacking the connection to another ssh server? Incidentally, I can only log in with password authentication, no shared keys, whilst I can use shared keys with the original server.

comment Use a SSD on linux to speed up the access to the data files on the HDD without wasting space and wearing it out?
Did you downvote the post? For what reasons? Ah, so sick of trolls.

I'd be "wrong" if I stated an opinion or a fact which you proved wrong, but I'm stating a goal I want to reach. Wearing is useless if I don't want to waste space, to that end a simple cache would be useless. I could resort to a cache if I deemed too difficult do otherwise, but that's another matter altogether.

I see you are in a fighting mood, and I see no sense in that. I did reat the whole section, I just mentioned the part that concerned this discussion. My goal is to not waste space and avoid useless wearing of the SSD. If you can't provide a solution or don't want to, that's fine, just don't assume I should abandon my goals just because you think I should. Thank you so much. :)

A cache would waste space, indeed, but just moving the files from one storage media to the other would not, which is what I was looking for. I guess wearing is not an issue with nowadays SSD's, but if I could avoid writing to the SSD and still get speed gains without wasting space, why not? Thanks for the pointers to ZFS, do you know in which way it would be better than, say, Bcache+EXT4?

Bcache has a "writearound" mode that serves "to reduce the wear on the SSD" (citing Bcache's documentation), so the premise that "nobody worries about wearing out modern SSDs" is false. I am not specifically looking for pre-made solutions, I'm looking for a solution.

This comment is rather unhelpful. These are my requirements, I dunno why you think it should be of any importance that you deem them "bizarre"? What are you trying to tell me? However, even Bcache has a writearound mode that serves to reduce the wear on the SSD (citing Bcache's documentation), so the premise that "nobody worries about wearing out modern SSDs" is false.

I've got the same issue, but I don't have those updates installed. Bummer.

Btw, did you downvote me, or...?

Because I already accepted izzy's one as the answer... and because I haven't thought of accepting my own decision as an aswer, to be honest. Hope I did nothing too bad. :)

I updated the post, I couldn't add more links in it, here they are. 1) Plug computers: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plug_computer. 2) Various small PC's with Linux and similar: raymii.org/cms/p_Small_Linux_PCs_overview

comment All in one OPEN SOURCE ADSL2+ Wireless Router?
I actually ended up choosing a cheap Linksys WAG120N wireless router+adsl2 from CISCO. It costed me a little above 40 EUR. Although it appears it has an open source firmware (based on Linux, I gather) whose source code can be directly downloaded from their website, I think I will bind a plug computer to it, or some other tiny solutions. I will update the question.

I did not end up buying that one, but I will accept your answer nonetheless. :) Thanks for your help.

Actually, no. I just would like to find any model of any manufacturer with an open source firmware. I am not trying to replace my current router/modem firmware.
