Installing CentOS 5 "Debian Style"

Filed under
HowTos

If one knows of the hype about Ubuntu, and it is almost unavoidable, one is led to believe that it is the most popular Linux distribution for desktop users. I have yet to see hard data that shows evidence of that claim so that will remain unresolved for now. One of the reasons touted for Ubuntu's popularity is that it comes on a single CD.

Most Linux system administrators are familiar with GParted, the excellent open source graphical disk-partitioning tool. GParted outshines all graphical disk-partioners, including its commercial competitors. With GParted, you can create, destroy, resize, move, and copy partitions on all the major filesystems, including ext2/3, NTFS, fat16/32, Reiser3/4, XFS, JFS, and several more.

Create "chroot jail" for bind

Filed under
HowTos

This article will explain how to create a chroot jail for bind8. This effectively makes bind oblivious to the rest of the (file)system beyond it's chroot directory tree. Therefore security will be increased, because if bind due to some crack attempt allows shell access one can not go beyond the chroot environment.

Hands on: Running other operating systems alongside Linux

Filed under
HowTos

A few months back the Linux NTFS project released beta drivers for full read-and-write access to NTFS partitions. Previously, read-only support was offered in the kernel, with write support considered unstable and for developers only.

Country-based packet filtering with iptables

Filed under
HowTos

Bruteforce attacks shouldn't pose a real security risk to any server but are still annoying and clog up your logfiles. Many methods to block these break-in attempts exist, like BlockHosts, Fail2ban or rate-limiting incoming connections. However, on my search I also came across one tool for which I couldn't find an easy guide: geoip.
