  • How to Block Email from certain TLDs (Top Level Domains) in ISPConfig

    Spam is an annoyance and there's a multitude of ways to counteract it. However spammers also get smarter and try to bypass filters and stuff. In addition, ICANN has lately approved a great mean gTLDs (generic Top Level Domains), like .biz, .info etc. Some of those gTLDs are, in my opinion, exclusive used by spammers. Lately, I have gotten a lot of spam from the .xyz gTLD. So the question was, how to block email coming from such domains using that gTLD.

  • Install Bittorrent Sync on Debian / Ubuntu

    debian Author: sjauTags: Comments: 5

    Install Bittorrent Sync on Debian / Ubuntu BitTorrent Sync is a new piece of software by BitTorrent Inc. - the original creator of the BitTorrent protocol. While most might be familiar with BitTorrent, only a few know of BitTorrent Sync. Normal .torrent files are static and once created they can't be altered anymore. BitTorrent Sync however allows updates to the data and syncs them to the peers. BitTorrent Sync is also available cross-plattform (Linux, Android, Windows, Mac OSX, iOS) and it has two distinctive operation modes. You can have a many-to-many synchronization meaning that every node can alter the content and have it synced to the other devices. Or you can have a one-to-many synchronization meaning that only the Master Node can alter data and this is then synced to all other nodes. Especially the one-to-many synchronization is of interested if you want to create backups and store them at multiple sites - using the power of BitTorrent swarms (meaning each nodes starts providing updates to other nodes as soon as they are received).

  • Remotely Unlock Fully Encrypted Debian Squeeze

    debian Author: sjauTags: , Comments: 2

    Remotely Unlock Fully Encrypted Debian Squeeze In the past I have written several howtos for remotely unlocking fully encrypted Debian installations. With the advent of Debian Squeeze, the developers have integrated a simple way to do so. Most stuff is provided directly by Debian itself - meaning you don't need 3rd party scripts anymore. However it still involves a few steps which I describe below. Also I provide you with a bash script that will do all the steps automatically.

    How To Compile Coloured rTorrent From SVN In Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat / Debian 6 Squeeze With ruTorrent rTorrent is a popular command line based bittorrent client. It provides very powerful features yet it is very light on the system - contrary to other bittorrent clients like Vuze. There are a couple of webinterfaces for it but they are not truly need. SSH access combined with the "screen" program provide you all the tools you need. In addition to the previous compilation guides of rTorrent, this one will also feature ruTorrent on a force Apache SSL connection with password protection.

  • Set Up A Fully Encrypted Raid1 LVM System (Lenny)

    debian Author: sjauTags: , Comments: 7

    Set Up A Fully Encrypted Raid1 LVM System For this Howto I use Debian Lenny (still testing and not "stable" for the simple reason as - contrary to Debian Etch and/or Ubuntu 8.04/8.10 - the install routine does setup the initrd correctly so that you can set up encrypted swap and also an encrypted raid1 lvm during install). This Howto will be heavy on screen shots again - a lot of them are repetitive as I setup multiple partitions at once. Basically I will set up the system in a way that (a) everything [except for /boot] will be encrypted, (b) everything will be on a raid1 and (c) have a LVM for your data partition so that this one can be easily expanded.
