Creating An AS400 Terminal Client With An Old PC And Ubuntu

Creating an AS400 terminal with an Old PC and Ubuntu

This how to uses Ubuntu 7.10 Server install. I am sure that this could be done with a much smaller install base, rather than server - I might have used the Alternative CD, or maybe even some other distribution like DSL, or Puppy Linux (if you needed GUI [graphical user interface] ). But for proof of concept this worked fine. I used an Old Dell GX100 Optiplex with 256 MB of RAM (I don't think I need any more that 128 [maybe even 64MB], but this is what was in the box when I pulled it out of the pile). It has a small form factor, and runs pretty quiet. My steps are geared toward English & US, so you may want to change those if your using something else =).

Build A HylaFax Server With AvantFax Frontend Using Debian Etch

Install Debian. I used the basic barebones install option. I did some things that were done because of preference, and not necessary. I have marked them approriately. I encourage contributions from anyone who would like to add or correct something in this HowTo to contact me so I can fix it. I have installed this setup twice following these instructions and used Avantfax 2.3.0. Thanks to all the resources who helped me figure this out. Especially Razametal, who submitted a fantastic Spanish language walkthrough on ecualug.org.

Installing MyDNS And The MyDNSConfig Control Panel On CentOS 5.1

Installing MyDNS And The MyDNSConfig Control Panel On CentOS 5.1

In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure MyDNS and MyDNSConfig on CentOS 5.1. MyDNS is a DNS server that uses a MySQL database as backend instead of configuration files like, for example, Bind or djbdns. The advantage is that MyDNS simply reads the records from the database, and it does not have to be restarted/reloaded when DNS records change or zones are created/edited/deleted. A secondary nameserver can be easily set up by installing a second instance of MyDNS that accesses the same database or, to be more redundant, uses the MySQL master / slave replication features to replicate the data to the secondary nameserver.

Creating Encrypted FTP Backups With duplicity And ftplicity On Debian Etch

Creating Encrypted FTP Backups With duplicity And ftplicity On Debian Etch

When you rent a dedicated server nowadays, almost all providers give you FTP backup space for your server on one of the provider's backup systems. This tutorial shows how you can use duplicity and ftplicity to create encrypted (so that nobody with access to the backup server can read sensitive data in your backups) backups on the provider's remote backup server over FTP. ftplicity is a duplicity wrapper script (provided by the German computer magazine c't) that allows us to use duplicity without interaction (i.e., you do not have to type in any passwords).
