comment Ncat throws errors while being run from crontab
Does it work if you run it from root or a user crontab say every 10 mins? Also, if it is this stdin issue, maybe you can create a stdin for ncat with echo | /usr/bin/ncat -w 0.1 192.168.0.10 50000

comment Accessing symbolic links in VirtualBox
Not to start a discussion here, but I can confirm the same behaviour on a windows host with windows and linux guests. With a windows guest the link is followed host side and with a linux guest the link is resolved guest side. virtualbox.org/ticket/10085#comment:7 has some clarification. You might do best to bring this up on the virtualbox forums and once you have researched everything there, possibly open a ticket, but read virtualbox.org/wiki/Bugtracker first. I am going to answer your question.

comment Accessing symbolic links in VirtualBox
Well, trawling the virtualbox forums leads mostly to discussion of the problems with creating links on shared folders, apart from that in the past, accessing symlinks failed also on windows guests, and that was "fixed". I can't find a discussion of a samba style "follow symlinks" option. What happens with a hard link? If the problem is in fact as you have defined it, and not an example you wrote to describe something else, then what about a simple workaround? Out of interest, how does a hardlink behave?

I would hazard a guess that Windows guest is seeing the Link as a folder, whereas your Linux guest is seeing the link as a link to /home/mrlister/Documents ON THE LOCAL FILESYSTEM inside the guest, which doesn't exist of course. I hope I explain myself

comment Ncat throws errors while being run from crontab
I was going to hazard an answer with this, but it's not really a solution, it's more of a clue I found on a Fedora Updates List. Update Information: - use select as default nsock engine - prevents following error: Unable to register IOD #2: Operation not permitted when /dev/null is used as stdin lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/test/2013-January/112978.html

comment Windows 7 fails using application/soap+xml while XP works with application/ipp when connecting to printer
I have since discovered more problems with the Comtrend router that make this print server practically unusable anyway, but the question remains open. Can Windows 7 be forced to use IPP?
