DBM's Enterprise Linux Premium Subscription and On-Site Support requirement

21Jul2016 (UTC -8)

Please don't take this as sarcasm or anything negative, but simply an
honest question from an entrepreneur's mindset, but...

https://www.PhilGEPS.gov.ph/GEPSNONPILOT/Tender/SplashBidNoticeAbstractUI.aspx?menuIndex=3&refID=3953826

...for a year's tech support budget of PhP 95,000 for the the DBM, for
"Enterprise Linux Premium Subscription and On-Site Support"
requirement, is this something like someone going there about once a
month, just to do these?

# apt-get -y update && apt-get -y upgrade && apt-get -y dist-upgrade
&& apt-get autoremove; echo; date; echo;

# zpool scrub TANK; time fstrim -v /; echo; date; echo;

Resuming a failed mail transfer

Whenever I'm sending mail with a huge attachment using the POP3 protocol and the transfer is cut midway, I
notice that upon retry, the transfer resumes from the beginning instead of the point where it was cut. Is
there a way to specify under POP3 to resume transfer at the point it was cut?

I'm using sylpheed and the pop3 protocol with my email provider, gn.apc.org.

Greetings to all,

Obet

Re: your own root server, anyone?




Hi Roberto,

The IANA site provides some information around how to set up a root server.



There is also here:


From my experience, many ISPs here in the US just run a DNS caching service and sometimes just ignores the TTL.  Due to the sheer number of requests to DNS serves maintained by companies like AT&T, Verizon or Earthlink, the servers (or clusters) quickly become populated with almost all the servers that their customers visit.

It seems they adjust the TTL to 30 mins to 4 hours, to reduce the outbound UDP calls required for the update

There were also some attempts in the past to break away from the approved TLDs -- there were a couple of companies that set up their own root servers and sold "realnames" instead of the usual TLD.

Hi Mike,

I'm only asking for interest in joining a learning process, not really about any commitment to set up a root server.

And for further clarification: I'm not talking of DNS servers for subdomains, which a big firm might want to do. I'm talking of alternatives to the ICANN root server. At least two already exist that I know of, the OpenRoot initiative maintains one, and China does too, I am told.

Greetings to all,

Obet

Hence, sitting on the fence for now.

your own root server, anyone?

Dear pluggers,

I managed to get in touch with Louis Pouzin, an Internet pioneer who says anyone can actually create a root
server, if there are others who want to try them out. He and colleagues operate one, called OpenRoot. He
also helped China set up its own. 

I have asked Louis (and his colleagues) to guide me how to do it and he might be willing to do so. If for some
reason anyone wants to set an alternative root server, if only for the fun of it, anyone here in plug wants to
join me in this learning process? I suppose there are materials on the Internet we can read to learn this
thing ourselves, but having access to an expert is always useful.

We can even do it on this list itself, which might make it little bit more active.

Let me know...

Obet Verzola

(no subject)

Hi.

Have a question for the tcp/ip experts here.

I recently had to split my various DSL lines between 2 routers. So Router A have 3 lines connected to it while Router B has 2.  I now have a server who will be receiving external traffic through these servers via port forwarding.  As I understand it, without any additional configuration the server will send outside-bound traffic through via the default route.  As such, if Router A is the default route for the server, even if the traffic came from Router B the responses will be sent via Router A.

If this is correct, what do I need to set up to have the server recognize which traffic is coming from which router and send its responses to the proper router accordingly?

TIA!

CentOS 7.2 /tmp not mounting every bootup

Hi,

Good day.

In our Linux box, we have an entry in fstab to mount /tmp but every time the system is bootup /tmp is not mounted. Mounting manually with command 'mount /tmp' will mount the partition correctly as per fstab.

I have tried to add the command 'mount /tmp' in rc.local but its not working /tmp is not mounted.

I can delete /tmp directory and every time I reboot the system /tmp is recreated with 1777 permission.

I can also see files under /tmp:


root <at> xxx: [/tmp]
# df -h .
Filesystem             Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/ol00-root  3.8G   80M  3.7G   3% /

root <at> xxx: [/tmp]
# ll -al
total 8
drwxrwxrwt   7 root root  136 Jun  6 03:13 .
dr-xr-xr-x. 29 root root 4096 Jun  6 02:18 ..
drwxrwxrwt   2 root root    6 Jun  6 02:19 .font-unix
drwxrwxrwt   2 root root    6 Jun  6 02:19 .ICE-unix
drwxrwxrwt   2 root root    6 Jun  6 02:19 .Test-unix
drwxrwxrwt   2 root root    6 Jun  6 02:19 .X11-unix
drwxrwxrwt   2 root root    6 Jun  6 02:19 .XIM-unix
-rw-------   1 root root  451 Jun  6 02:29 yum_save_tx.2016-06-06.02-29.HL1NRp.yumtx


fstab: /dev/mapper/ol01-lvol0  /tmp                    ext3     defaults        0 0

I also tried changing the partition from xfs to ext3 but to no avail. When I update /tmp to /tmp1 in fstab, then after bootup the system will correctly mount /tmp1.

Anyone have experience this? Any suggestions to solve this?

Thanks

Re: COMELEC Leaked Information

the grapevine says the authorities have a lead on one of the leakers and the only detail released is that the person is "young". the other item is more perplexing as the comelec database is allegedly already tampered. with virtually laughable security (data in plain text and sight),  it's not so difficult to believe.

:(

This is not good.

Hope that the responsible person and department will have the appropriate punishment for leaking personal data to public by not protecting their servers.

Would any of your guys know a company using webERP?
We're hoping to build better usability and acceptance around the country.
Thank you in advance for any reference.
