comment Why are Ethernet/MAC addresses needed?
The point is: not all computers have a unique IP address, sometimes you don't even want that, so that's a good argument for them having a separate LAN address, which is what a MAC address is.

wget has an option for that. Read the manual.

Yes, wget is great for that. To call it periodically, you could use AT.

comment How to prevent Teamviewer 6.0.9947 from starting with Windows?
This was at -1, but it is the actual answer to the question - TeamViewer does have an option 'Start TeamViewer with Windows' but deselecting that doesn't keep the TeamViewer service, which is fairly memory-hungry, from starting.

Alternative methods can be implemented using JavaScript.

I doubt our opening statement. less is useless for reading PDFs, wherever you are.

comment How to do a bidirectional SSH connection on localhost?
Have your tried disabling group read access? Does ~postgres/.ssh have any configuration files? Do /etc/ssh/ssh_config or /ect/ssh/sshd_config contain anything special? It is possible to disable or limit access there.

comment Sudo and file permissions
@aelbaz: What do you mean by 'permissions will continue having regular file'? The effect of sudo /sbin/ifconfig (...) is to run the /sbin/ifconfig command as user root, who can do more with that command than a regular user can, not because of the permissions set on /sbin/ifconfig or because of the lines in the sudo configuration, but because of permissions set on other files that are used by /sbin/ifconfig.

Aargh ... so the problem was lack of clarity in the error messages.

comment rsync filter: not finding the filter file
The example in the manpage is merge /etc/rsync/default.rules, clearly that refers to an absolute path. Why are you using quotes around the filename? On Unixy systems it's a better policy to avoid quotes by avoiding any characters in your filenames that are special to the shell. You never know how any particular tool is going to treat quotes.

comment rsync filter: not finding the filter file
My guess is that you're not aware that /.deploy/filters is an absolute path, and that you mean .deploy/filters instead.

comment ssh with an alternative configuration directory?
It isn't an answer; it's a workaround to the lack of an answer.

comment ssh with an alternative configuration directory?
I solved the problem by writing a wrapper script that actually changes the user's $HOME (it's a symlink), executes the wrapped command, then changes it back; and using that in my cron job. It's a hack but it will do.

comment ssh with an alternative configuration directory?
The problem is that my $HOME is on a network drive, which ssh can deal with just fine, except when running from cron.

Yes, rsync is what I want to use this for.

comment ssh with an alternative configuration directory?
I think it's cleanest to close this question (although I would really like to know the answer, looks like my only option is to compile ssh from source); I'll try to ask the other question in a second attempt. Thank you.
