Bind9 Error on Debian Etch

May

For those of you running a bind dns server you may have come across this error only when trying to restart your DNS server

 Reloading domain name service... : bindrndc: connect failed: 127.0.0.1#953: connection refused
 

This has to do with the configuration of (or lack there of) in /etc/bind/rndc.conf

I noticed while searching the system for references to rndc that there was a program called:  /usr/sbin/rndc-confgen
Running this gives you the correct text to put in your rdnc.conf file as well as a couple lines to add to your named.conf

Gubble - An Interesting Parental Control Firefox Extension

Mar
14

I just came across this very neat little Firefox extension that provides parental controls for the Firefox web browser. It is called Gubble (www.gubble.com). Once it is installed and you restart Firefox it will prompt you to setup a parental account and then child accounts. The extension takes control of the browser and works on a whitelist philosophy. Everything is blocked except what you allow for the child accounts.

Symantec Backup Exec Remote Agent 11d on Ubuntu Feisty

Aug
02

I found a very helpful article on installing the Remote Agent for Linux on Ubuntu here: http://www.ubuntux.org/ubuntu-veritas-backup-exec-and-you

Below are the steps I used on Feisty Server. Note: Change to root first: sudo su (as the admin account)

1. I registered my serial numbers and downloaded the latest .tar.gz for all agents. (called BEWS_11D.7170_LINUX-UNIX-MAC-NT4_AGENTS.2.tar.gz at this time.)

2. Changed the port that webmin was running on (if you have it installed)

Testing the Linksys WAP200

May

Today I tried out a couple of the newer Linksys WAP200 wireless access points. These are a little more pricey than the older WAP54G that I've used. They include a lot more features such as: VLANs, Multiple SSIDs, expanded logging features, etc. The configuration is pretty much straight forward. The IP configure options have two more boxes for DNS servers configuration. These were not present in the older models. So thinking nothing too much it I filled those in, setup the security and some of the other options, made a backup and put them into the field.

It mentioned a firefox extension called "Rikaichan" that would translate the translation of a Japanese word in a webpage and translate it to either English, German, French or Russian.
