comment Iptables, allow common ports, block the rest
Figured as much with not needing 53, was just at a loss. Thanks, this setup is working, bonus points for the 1-line syntax sugar

But I don't just want to convert the ^M to newlines, I want it to "erase" the previous line like it does in a console.

Yeah I tried that before posting, apologies for not clarifying. It redirects the control characters. It's the TTY that's parsing the control characters when I run tail (and I don't understand why the output from less differs). I need a program that replicates what the TTY/console is doing when I run tail. Simply redirecting the output of tail results in a file that differs from what I see in the TTY/console.

The user its running as may not have access to /tmp/, can you chmod 777 a folder, touch a file in it, chmod that 777 and try logging to a file there?

comment How can I get multiple video cards to work on linux?
So its 3yrs later and I use linux full time. I use ubuntu now which detects all my monitors automatically, and makes it easy to manage via a GUI. Not sure if things advanced in the last 3yrs, or if I'm just using a better distro now.
