|tvynr||rpc: Good deal. Just remember, virtual or not, there's really no way to control what gets sent to you.|
|rpc||and that's ip-based, if it works... i'm done :) as i wasn't able to force the interface to use 10mbit :/ that would be still too much anyway, i want to make them 5mbit max|
hm yes... in fact the bandwidth will still be in use... they just won't see that
btw i can still shape outgoing... and that's even more important right now :)
|tvynr||rpc: Usually is, yeah. :) I used to try to tune that stuff myself but I replaced my firewall script with Shorewall and v3 has a built-in shaper.|
rpc: And it does a nice job, so I've been content.
|rpc||hmm so you recommend shorewall? i stopped by that one for a sec too|
it does have shaping in fact..
|tvynr||rpc: Indeed I do. I use Debian and the mainline Debian packages are a bit lacking. But the shorewall developers make available their own Debian packages. I'm running Shorewall 3.2.4 on a Debian Etch firewall I haven't touched in months. 's been doing great.|
|rpc||and i found one more thing... one can efficently limit incoming traffic by seriously limiting OUTgoing traffic.. now that makes sense :)|
|rpc||hello and nice to hear from you :)|
|karsten||rpc: In fact, that's the _only_ way you can really regulate incoming traffic.|
rpc: You can deny stuff, but you can't stop remote from sending it (they'll just retrans).
|rpc||looks like i just hit the gem lol|
|karsten||rpc: However, given tcp data, if you delay your acks, they'll have to wait for 'em.|
|rpc||right so that's what tvynr said before|
|karsten||rpc: tcp handshake is your friend.|
|rpc||right, it will be kind of passive defence, forcing source to wait for acks and in fact it will slow down the heat|
tvynr thank you about the opinion on shorewall as well, will probabaly have a good look too
|karsten||rpc: ... and that's something that's in the protocol stack, so anything that's coded to protocol (most anything) will meet it. If it's _not_ coded to protocol and it's flooding you, your defense is upstream blocking, DNS tricks, selective routing, etc.|
that was a really good lesson
|rokfit||can anyone please help me? I've installed some system fans and I boot my computer to command line. I log in and startx, but x doesn't start. It says no monitor on (0: 0)|
|karsten||rokfit: Did X work before?|
|action||karsten dropships rokfit a time machine.|
|karsten||dropships rokfit a time machine.|
rokfit: Problem solved.
|rokfit||i tried a dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg|
didn't fix it
|karsten||That was my next suggestion.|
Check your card seating. Did you jostle anything in the system? Remove and reseat GFX card, and all cables.
|peterS||'no monitor' makes it sound as though you plugged the monitor into the wrong vga port, but that's unlikely|
|stevepastelan||Can I make it so that a directory behaves like an scp or ftp client?|
|GeorgeS069||rokfit: you might try re-seating the video card though I doubt it's gonna help...maybe you bumped it messing with the fans|
|stevepastelan||I mean, so that it mirrors a remote directory always|
|karsten||Also run 'lspci' see if you can find your gfx card.|
rokfit: I've gotta split, talk to channel.
