comment Having trouble logging onto my ssh server
Password1 and password2 are different so tonight I can try and change them to be the same just to eliminate a variable but let me clarify what I did; I installed openssh-server on host1 and then from host2 I 'ssh jondoe@host1' then entered password1. Oh and then I kicked host1 in the disk drive.

comment Having trouble logging onto my ssh server
First off, thanks for taking the time to look at this really appreciate it. I did not know user/passwd could match on the local but be different on the remote host? I thought that it used the linux credentials to authenticate user/passwd?

I do not believe so but even if I did would it not stop me before trying to authenticate my credentials?

@Paul: I do have both but both seem to be only comments. Ign: I can put that up but I want to scrub it first.

comment Start VNC session without the full GUI desktop? (seamless window)
Is there a way to identify what is the cause of the slowness to see if the problem is the work network/connection or the rest of the network. I think the problem is really lag time rather than pure throughput as I can stream HD video at home but I cannot go up a couple lines in gvim in under a second. Sounds kind of petty but it really slows my coding down.

comment Start VNC session without the full GUI desktop? (seamless window)
I tried the free (to download) TightVNC client as it claims it does more compression than traditional VNC but it was unable to connect to my corporate network. I will probably just have to go beg and pleed with IT to improve the VNC connections... Not looking forward to this...

Its possible. I tried X11 forwarding but it was very slow and I remember it being much faster last time I tried it. Of coarse last time I tried it I was working for a different company so all bets are off as far as performance goes. It may be that I just need to request faster VNC from my company.

comment How to auto syncronize files with network drive on Windows XP?
Bad news. Dsynchronize didn't synchronize when I tried to do bidirectional real-time sync and freefilesync does not do bidirectional real-time sync. So I am still looking for a working solution.

Seems like it does exactly what I need. I will try it out.

freefilesync seems to be another well regarded tool but there are less reviews of this tool so I think I will probably try Dsynchronize first.

Dsynchronize seems like it does exactly what I want. It is free but if it works well I will donate some denaro to Dimio (and his cat :)! The reviews from this site seem good but they do mention that the "real time synchronization" takes more resources than Halo! So, I will have to try it out and see if it is really that bad.

Has anyone tried allways sync?

Maybe I missed it but robocopy seems like I must manually invoke the command. I was looking for a daemon to watch a folder and auto-update for me. I have updated the original question to clarify what I am looking for. Thanks.

@Doug: Thanks, I always wondered why you wouldn't just always do kill -9! Thanks for the enlightenment.

Wow very thorough! Unfortunately I know how to kill processes what I need to know is how to kill a process when I cannot log on to the machine.

Does anyone have a good resource (best practices, recommendations) for creating your own perl based daemons?

comment How do I find and kill remote processes in Linux?
@ewanm: I am not exactly sure what a forkbomb is or why I cannot execute any commands on the machine any more. Whenever I do anything, (ls, pwd, etc...) I get the error: "No more processes." I am getting the impression I am not going to be able to solve this problem on my own.

comment How do I find and kill remote processes in Linux?
@Doug: My bad, I thought that you could provide pkill a server name as an argument and that it would go to the machine and kill the process. Now that I thin about even if pkill did have that functionality it would probably have to log in as me. So its looking like I cannot do this on my own and that an admin is the only person that can kill these jobs for me, correct?
