comment How to delete a file in Windows with a too long filename?
I know this is an old thread but still valid - this the only step I found that actually worked and didn't direct me to sketchy freeware sites. Thanks.

comment PuTTY settings to replicate Windows XP telnet program
It might help to mention that PuTTY's customization is on a per-connection basis. Also, does the commeand 'stty sane' work on the power supply? That can sometimes resolve your incompatibility issues. You can also use 'stty erase ' and hit the backspace key for a remap. Not sure if your PS supports all that, though. If not I'd recommend heavyd's answer.

comment SSH : Connection Refused
check your sshd configuration - needs to specify 2222 as a listen port in the server configuration. You also may have another listener using 2222, perhaps a proxy or NI scanner. You could shut down SSH and see if there's still something on the port.

comment Windows 7 hostfile not used by PuTTY-Pliunk
I guess I just expect too much of my router firmware, since it's handling all the IP traffic anyway. I think I will try DDWRT and if it blows up my router try to find cash for a better one.

comment Windows 7 hostfile not used by PuTTY-Pliunk
I figured it out with the setting GIT_SSH to empty as above, but I appreciate the comment. Still don't know why the .home is being appended to my hostnames but adding the entries as you recommended ended the issues I had with that aspect of the problem. Thanks.

comment Windows 7 hostfile not used by PuTTY-Pliunk
I had the same issue and just resolved it by running the following command at the prompt: > set GIT_SSH= where the right side of = is no value. Also was helpful to set GIT_TRACE=1 which then showed the git commands as they were being run.

comment Windows 7 hostfile not used by PuTTY-Pliunk
Sorry, I can't get the markdown right. I added the .home entry but it doesn't seem to make any difference. plink works fine > c:\me>plink me@boopsie > Using username "me". > Passphrase for key "mykey": > Last login: Tue Mar 12 00:17:00 2013 from 192.168.1.1 > ~me@boopsie:~$ exit > logout but git pull fails (this is a git repo folder) > c:\me>git pull > fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

comment How to make git to work with pagent(putty) on Windows?
I don't have a ip or hostname set in PuTTY default settings but I still have this issue. from win7, plink can't connect to my server boopsie by hostname - it's appending .home and going to a totally different ip: > c:\me>plink -v me@boopsie > Looking up host "boopsie.home" > Connecting to 67.220.66.112 port 22 But command line works fine: c:\me>ping boopsie Pinging boopsie[192.168.1.2] with 32 bytes of data: Reply from 192.168.1.2: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64

comment Wireless network, two sets of PCs in different locations - tradeoff between workstations <-> single router or router <-> router
Thanks - it's an option, but with finished walls, etc. if I went this way I would probably hire a company as allquixotic recommends.

Thanks for the writeup, it's definitely something to consider. I'll give it a couple of days for comments and accept this if no one else comments.

comment How to check if system has internet connection and can send email (via Shell)?
Your question was " What shell commands should I use to check availability of sending email?" - the telnet command connected to the foreign host, but the host rejected the connection. This is common to prevent spamming. However, it does answer your questions 1) your server does have access to the internet, and 2) it is able to communicate on port 25.

comment Windows 7 keyboard shortcut Windows Key + D doesn't work
Check to see if you have a display control panel installed. Does anything else come up when you use [Winkey]+D?

comment Installing existing Ubuntu 11.04 (guest) in VirtualBox on Windows 7 (host)
What size did you make your VB drive? Maybe I am oversimplifying but "out of disk" appears pretty straightforward. You may have a new kernel that is running your /boot volume out of space.

Yahoo is actually still doing quite a bit in terms of active content and developer support - they just don't have that fresh-faced boy genius or richer-than-God public persona to keep them in the news.

comment Should I expect the key fingerprint as it appears in Putty key generation to match the server I am connecting to?
Agree with @grawity - if you have concerns contact the server operator and ask for their public key fingerprint (don't send them what you received, check what they send you against what you're seeing).

comment Should I expect the key fingerprint as it appears in Putty key generation to match the server I am connecting to?
Remember that everyone has their own public/private key pair. The key you gave the server is your public key, to prove your identity. The server is offering you its public key during connection negotiation to encrypt the connection for secure shell. Two different purposes, two different key pairs.

See below. If you can communicate via telnet on port 25 you can connect via SMTP - if you can't, you can't.
