comment Capture traffic for specific application
Also, depending on the type of application it is, you could force it to go through a proxy and use something like fiddler to capture the traffic of that application. Never tried it but can't see why it would not work. It may be as simple as changing IE proxy settings to fiddler proxy (port 8888 by default) or as difficult as re-compiling the app to use the proxy or somehow forcing the app to use the proxy - I am sure there are apps out there that can do that.

Would you know where the application will attempt to connect to? I am thinking you could use wireshark and use filters to drill down to destination host/IP?

comment ls -1tr | tail -1 doesn't work in cygwin
@p.vitzliputzli I did that but got the same issue - I looked at it again today (after some rest :D) and managed to see the problem - I was just using the "-c" switch instead of "--login -c -c" - thanks for all your help! :-)

comment ls -1tr | tail -1 doesn't work in cygwin
@p.vitzliputzli - great, it works now with the commands above! One small problem though, when I run my batch script which has the following in it "C:\cygwin\bin\bash -c "script.sh" - it tries to use the old bash from the previous installation (the new installation is C:\cygwin and the old one was in C:\ssh) - are you aware of any config or why the bash.exe in the new installation dir is still using or pointing to the old one? Hope that makes sense!

comment ls -1tr | tail -1 doesn't work in cygwin
tail --version throws a "TAIL:lseeki64() failed 9" error - it looks like a completely messed up install to me (or a lot of missing components) - it may be worth installing to a completely different directory to see if I get the same issue - what do you think?

Updated the installation but still receiving the same message "TAIL: can't open 1"... @p.vitzliputzli when I tried that command, I got a "TAIL: lseeki64() failed 22" message - not sure what that means.

comment How do you get a public link to a file in Dropbox that isn't in a public folder?
It does work on Mac... you need to enable the sharing model feature on your account first (it is not enabled by default as it is not yet 100% ready yet). You can enable the sharing model feature by clicking here: dropbox.com/enable_shmodel

comment Transferring file with Dropbox when it gets cut in the middle
Not true - you can resume uploads and downloads whether they be files that have already been uploaded as opposed to new files which have not been uploaded before

comment why is drop box syncing so freakishly slowly in my linux virtual machine?
There is no throttling involved with free accounts. The reason why you may be experiencing this problem is because Dropbox first synchronises your small files first, moving on to the larger files. This solves the issue of all your small to medium files queuing behind larger ones.
