Been fiddling with OSs, hardware and software since the late 1980s.

Jack of all trades, master of none.

I've always believed in Open Source and sharing knowledge.

The Stack Exchange sites now allow me to give back to the community by sharing my experience with others. Of course, I am still learning, too!

comment Does a laptop run hotter when running off the battery?
I'm going to take some more time to monitor the behaviour. I also suspect that because the laptop had just come out of hibernation, startup tasks were still running, causing more CPU load than normal. By the time I had connected the charger, these tasks may have completed. So it was pure coincidence that the fan cycles slowed down.

Then you should be able to do it using the answer provided by @mauro.stettler below. Log in to the admin backend of your router and set up port forwarding.

You need to tell us how your intranet is connected to the internet. Is it via a router, or does one of your machines have 2 network devices?

comment Is it possible to share the same “hard drive” partition with a dual-boot?
@Ash Same here.. I've been mounting NTFS partitions under Linux no problem. Well, almost - I find them much slower than native linux partitions, but I've never detected any data corruption.

Don't forget that Linux and Windows have different line-endings for text files. While many editors can automatically detect and handle this, Notepad (the Windows default) can not!

comment How to do a proper Linux server backup to store apps installed and configurations?
I forgot to mention that I maintain a run book as an OpenOffice document in an easily locatable location in my home directory. In there I document the scripts and tools that I customise, including command-line parameters, download URLs, etc. On other systems that I support, I use the same idea, and pass on the document to incoming sysadmins.
