terliwhat does db_get do00:04
LaserJockdoesn't that get stuff from the template?00:06
terliso if I have a file named templates00:06
terliwith two entries in it marked parallels/accept_licence and parallels/license00:06
terliaccept_ being the boolean and license being the text itself00:06
terlidb_get parallels gets both?00:07
terlino. can't be.00:07
LaserJockwell, look at the example00:08
LaserJockdb_get debconfdemo/accepted00:08
LaserJockif [ "$RET" = "true" ]; then00:08
=== _neversfelde is now known as neversfelde
LaserJock    exit 000:08
LaserJockso it grabs debconfdemo/accepted and then tests if it returns true or false00:08
crimsunbe careful with forcing the user to accept the agreement prior to proceeding. you're in a position to design it properly now. the major point of contention will be blocking distribution upgrade progress.00:09
crimsuni.e., i install foobar, update && full-upgrade, walk away for a week, and find the upgrade is blocking on my input00:10
terlicrimsun, your a god, but this package will never, ever, ever make it into the repo.00:10
terliit's proprietary and binary.00:10
terliso the only upgrade possible is manual.00:11
crimsunsure, that's fine, and there are plenty of examples that did in fact use a hard-stop query, like the sun-java[56] in multiverse00:11
LaserJockterli: I'm saying prorietary and binary packages are allowed00:12
terliNobody maintains this package, and I'm not capable of complying with the universe rules.00:12

directhexterli, a EULA-style you-mist-agree license?01:28
directhexterli, an old sun-java6 package should provide something to copy01:29
savvasthe non-free virtualbox has a license agreement if I recall correctly01:30

terliI have it on my screen01:31

directhexit doesn't have a job? for shame, my taxes are paying for it to lounge around at home!01:31

terliok, now it failed to install, but that's my fault01:36

terli    exit 001:38
maxb<terli> the preinst is configured to db_go parallels <--- are you saying you actually have a line "db_go parallels" in the preinst?01:38
maxbbecause that would be meaningless01:39
maxbdb_go doesn't take an argument01:39
terlihow do I get preinst to pass control to my script?01:39
maxbyou don't01:39
terliand does db_stop belong in there?01:39
maxbYou've misunderstood how debconf works. You shouldn't have a 'parallels' file.01:40
terliI have preinst , a file called parallels and one marked parallels.templates01:40
terlipreinst is supposed to use debconf to run parallels , which is a script that uses the parallels.templates file to show license details01:41
maxbuhm, no01:41
terlithen explain how it's supposed to work.01:41
maxbYou don't use debconf to run things01:41
maxbYou use debconf to interact with some abstract UI01:42
terliI don't think you understand.01:42
terliyou are supposed to help me, not contradict me.,01:42
maxbPart of helping is pointing out misunderstandings01:42
terliwhat should i do for preinst to get my script implemented01:42
terliit's just a file called parallels that starts with a  line marked #!/bin/sh, think of it as any other script file.01:43
directhexyou don't write a script, you write a debconf template. preinst calls debconf using that template, and bails if your haven't accepted it01:43
terlino, I've relocated the details of what debconf does to a different file.01:44
maxbWell, don't do that01:44
maxbDoing that goes against all standards of how to use debconf01:44
directhexto what end? now you're talking about making that different file available outside the package, which is enormously messy01:44
terliwell, then, I suggest you inform me about the correct way.01:44
directhexhe tried, you told him off for it01:44
terlithe different file is IN the package01:44
terliit's IN /debian01:44
maxbThe correct way was the way I did it in the prewritten example I gave you01:44
maxbWhich is the same way sun-java does it01:45
directhexplease look at debian/dlj.templates and debian/JB-jdk.preinst in sun-java601:46
directhexyou can't use preinst to call things in data.tar.gz01:46
terliso I have a line marked db_get parallels/license which corresponds to a template marked parallels/license in the file parallels.templates01:46
terlidirect hex, everything is in the folder marked debian in the root of the archive.01:46
directhexthe semantics are more complex than that though. a binary package is split into multiple parts. the actual data section, the files to which you'd be agreeing to a license, are not the same as the metadata - that way you can't install it if you don't agree with the license01:48
terlithe license is in the metadata, and in the data.01:48
terlitwo copies.01:48
terliyou agree to the copy stored within templates01:48
terliit's identical to the other copy01:49
terlibut you don't have to explicitly agree to the other copy, you already did that with the first one during installation.01:49
directhexbut you don't want to use the template, you want to run a script. and the script does not form part of the control.tar.gz section of the package, which contains metadata like templates and preinst01:49
terlithe script isn't in the control.tar.gz01:50
terliit's in debian!01:50
terlipreinst isn't in control.tar.gz either01:50
directhexyes, it is.01:50
directhexafter you compile the source package, anyway01:50
directhexwhich is the point01:50
terliI don't have a source package.01:50
directhexhowever, it's 1:50am, and you clearly already know best, so i'm going to bed.01:51
terliI'm using DEBIAN folder and usr folder.01:51
maxboh, argh, do you literally mean DEBIAN, uppercase?01:51
maxbAre you seriously attempting to MANUALLY assemble a debian binary package without a source package being involved?01:52
terliThere is no source.01:52
terliit's all binary blobs to begin with.01:52
directhexa source package doesn't mean source. you think sun-java6 includes source?01:52
directhexor nvidia-glx?01:52
directhexdirecthex@mortos:/tmp$ ls sun-java6-6-10/01:53
directhexdebian  jdk-6u10-dlj-linux-amd64.bin  jdk-6u10-dlj-linux-i586.bin01:53
directhexthat's a source package01:53
terliwell , this one doesn't.01:53
maxbterli: You are seriously making things hard for yourself.01:54
terliI don't know what you mean by easy.01:54
terliI don't know the correct way to build the package, because I don't have the requisite files.01:54
maxbWell, you seem to be ignoring the minimal example I gave you, and the example of sun-java, and trying to forge your own way by a different path01:55
terliI didn't ignore your example01:55
terliI couldn't use it01:55
maxbwhy not?01:55
terliyou didn't give me a different example from my own!01:55
terlimy list of files IS identical to yours.01:55
terliI put the script in preinst01:55
maxbI never had a DEBIAN01:55
terliand now I just have templates and preinst01:55
terliwell I don't know where you put it then01:56
terliTHIS package's source had a debian.01:56
maxbdebian/ and DEBIAN/ are *different*01:56
terliI mean DEBIAN.01:56
StevenKYou shouldn't be playing in DEBIAN/01:56
terliI don't know the difference.01:56
terliit's a *debian* package, anyway.01:57
maxbWell, either read up about it in the Debian Policy Manual, or just trust us that if you are messing with a DEBIAN/ directory you're doing it wrong01:58
directhexyou want to generate a SOURCE PACKAGE. christ, we could be done by now. a SOURCE PACKAGE does not require source for parallels, before you start, it just means a rational sane way of building all the required files in the right places using a plethora of helper tools. a source package consists of whatever you have from upstream, plus a debian/ folder. that's it.01:58
terliwell, I've gotten far enough that the installer is saying, template parse error near `text` in stanza #101:58
terliwell, directhex, I don't know how that works.01:58
terlican I just rename DEBIAN to debian?01:58
directhexterli, if you wanted to zip a file, would you use a zip tool, or a hex editor?01:58
StevenKNope, you can't01:58
terliif I wanted to zip it I would use zip01:59
terlior tar01:59
directhexterli, right now you're using vi.01:59
terliI used dpkg -b to generate my package from the folders specified in the wiki...01:59
terliI tried to use data.tar.gz and control~, really I did, but I couldn't get it to make the . folders.02:00
directhexif you ever see data.tar.gz or control.tar.gz, ur doin it wrong. those files are generated as part of package creation, by dpkg-buildpackage02:01
maxbterli: What wiki are you reading? You've apparently found your way into some deep dark internals documentation02:01
terliI did.02:01
* Hobbsee reads the backscroll, and raises an eyebrow02:01
maxbWhat, only one eyebrow? :-)02:01
terliI had to open the archive in archive manager, extract it, then edit the contents.02:01
* directhex lowers Hobbsee's eyebrow with his poking stick02:01
terlithen re-compress it to a archive.02:01
* directhex falls off his desk02:01
directhexUR DOIN IT WRONG02:01
* Hobbsee raises the other eyebrow at that02:01
Hobbseewell, no wonder it isn't working.02:02
terliI don't know what other way there is, I wasn't taught anything about any of this.02:02
crimsun(you silly people. i would have used Hobbsee's stick to zip.)02:02
terliand it works fine, I just can't get debconf to parse my note/eula thingy02:02
terlidid you know, before I was using their archive(the official one) , and having to manually replace sh with bash because the maintainer screwed up and made his script call /sh instead of bash02:03
maxbterli: You are poking about in internals that developers don't bother to deal with directly. I (and probably most others here) have no idea how the templates are supposed to be packed into the binary deb, because we use tools that do it for us02:03
terlimaxb: I have no idea where the tools are.02:04
terlibut if you don't know how02:04
terlithen something has gone seriously wrong02:04
maxbFinally it becomes clear *why* you're approaching it this way02:04
maxbIt was not clear to me until just now that you were actually trying to repackage an existing .deb file02:05
directhexdpkg-repack - puts an unpacked .deb file back together02:05
* maxb headdesks02:05
maxbI wrote my own one of those too02:05
terlisorry, I've already deleted it.02:05
* maxb wonders just how much of his ~/bin/ has packaged equivalents, if you know where to look :-)02:06
terlianyway, it's clear to me that in one way, I clearly am superior to you(I'm fooling around with sith bathrooms in the debian temple), and in another way, I havn't the vaguest idea what I'm doing.02:06
terlidb_input critical license02:07
terlidb_input critical license_accepted02:07

Hobbseeterli: dude, take the attitude elsewhere.02:07
* maxb awards terli the ultra-bizarre-metaphor prize02:07
terliHobsee; I don't have the vaugest idea how I'm supposed to package this without your help.02:07
Hobbseeterli: there is no reason anyone *has* to help you, and the more you show your attitude, the more likely it is that you'll be ignored.02:07
Hobbseeterli: well then, you should clearly try to be polite, stop telling people to be quiet like they're your dog, listen to what they say, whether you agree with it or not, and stop saying you're superior, no?02:08
terliyesno, yes, ok.02:08
terliI'm waiting.02:11
maxbWell, it's past time for me to be asleep, so don't wait for me.02:12
Hobbseeoh, and maybe you already wore out your welcome with your comment on being clearly superior, so you may find that no one's going to deal with you anyway02:12
Hobbseeso, wait away.02:13
terliWell, you did see me admit in one and the same sentance that I don't know what I'm doing.02:13
terliNot knowing what I'm working with is humiliating and frustrating.02:13

iulianpersia: Oh, that's great!09:04
persiaSorry it's been so long: there's really no excuse on my part.09:05
iulianNo worries.09:05
slytherinpersia: The problem is related to batik. The current version in Ubuntu is 1.7.dfsg-0ubuntu1. Where as Debian version in experimental is 1.7-1. According to dpkg 1.7.dfsg-0ubuntu1 > 1.7-1 so I will not be able to upload a merge from Debian. :-(09:30
persiaDo the orig.tar.gz files differ?09:31
slytherinpersia: yes they do.09:32
slytherinpersia: our version has some code from fop as well (inline with what was done for 1.6). But that code is not needed any more.09:33
slytherinThe main problem is how the buildd will treat the version from Debian. If it think that it is less than what we currently have then it will never get published.09:34
persiaOK.  Then create 1.7.dfsg1-1ubuntu1.09:34
persiaIt's not ideal, but it's probably what we need until 1.8 comes out.09:34
slytherinpersia: right. That is what just came to my mind. This problem will go away when we have 1.8.09:35
persiaRight.  We just need to do some fakery to force use of the Debian orig.tar.gz, as I presume it's better.09:35
persiaIf nothing else, it makes it easier to merge later.09:35
slytherinby the way do we have any set policy for/against sync/merge from experimental? Debian experimental has fop 0.95. And it is unlikely to enter unstable until lenny is released.09:38
directhexslytherin, not just permitted, but more or less required during the lenny freeze09:39
directhexslytherin, most of the jaunty mono stack is smerged from experimental09:39
slytherindirecthex: good then. I am wondering when will be lenny released.09:40
directhexslytherin, it'll come bundled with copies of duke nukem forever09:40
persiaBest way to help lenny release is to help close the remaining RC bugs: they may well be bugs in Ubuntu as well, so it's not wasted effort.09:45

directhexmmm, sounds hard. never mind then :/09:49
directhexis it a sign i'm getting old if a major factor in which brands i buy for a new pc is the warranty?09:52
persiaNo, it's a sign that you've reached the threshold of your performance requirement: you no longer expect it will be cheaper or better to get a new machine when that one breaks.09:53
stefanlsdi get dell with 3 year next business day warranties. i cant be bother to go fix get parts to fix and replace hardware anymore09:54
directhexstefanlsd, the price diff between a dell with 1year rtb, and a self-build with a few lifetime warranties, on the spec i want, is already a few hundred quid09:54
stefanlsdmm. sounds alot. but if u think of the time and effort lost with self built. if u have the time, i guess self built will be easier09:56

FlimmI'm packaging my own program, how should I handle translations of the package description?11:06
directhexdebian/control? don't.11:07
sllhi room! I'm trying to do a deb package. do you know where can I find a good tutorial to do it? I read some tutorials but all show diferents way and for smal applications too.11:07
Flimmdirecthex: how will it get translated then?11:08
slytherinsll: which tutorials did you read?11:08
Flimmsll: what are you trying to package?11:09
slytherinFlimm: why do you need to translate them?11:09
directhexFlimm, i wasn't aware debian/control supported translation11:09
FlimmWell the Debian Description Translation Project seems to translate the descriptions somehow. http://ddtp.debian.net/11:10
FlimmBut it seems like the translations are only in the repo, not in the packages themselves11:12
directhexseems that way. they ARE apparently supported in jaunty though -> http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/jaunty/main/i18n/11:13

james_wstefanlsd: it looks like a pretty bust configure.in13:27
stefanlsdjames_w: yeah. we prob could fix it and redo the .h files, but i think the point was the transition and imagemagick handling that stuffs. i'll check with lool.  he said his built...13:28
james_wstefanlsd: yeah, but imview's configure.in isn't that smart13:29
james_wdoesn't set -I based on anything from imagemagick for instance13:29
stefanlsdjames_w: yeah. i think a .h somewhere is looking for magick/api.h and its changed to ImageMagick/api.h  or something to that affect. need to confirm13:30

stefanlsdlool: as a fix (prob ugly), uncommenting #           CPPFLAGS="$CPPFLAGS "`Magick-config --cppflags`  does get it to build.15:02
loolstefanlsd: *cough*15:11
slaytonwhich of the deb helper scripts applies the patches under debian/patches?15:11
loolstefanlsd: But it's better than using AC_CHECK_LIB IMO15:12
lool(either use Magick-config or pkg-config, but don't check directly for headers or libs)15:12
stefanlsdlool: oh. it still uses that for other stuff. heh.15:12
* RainCT is trying out KDE 4 beta. if someone wants to hear my rants about it, tell me to enable verbosity :P15:12
stefanlsdlool: am i on the right track here?   http://paste.ubuntu.com/102772/15:13
loolstefanlsd: Hmm no; PKG_CHECK_MODULES() wants as first arg the base name of the vars in which to store the _LIBS and _CFLAGS and second arg the list of pkg-config modules you need15:18
loolstefanlsd: Check xine-lib's configure.ac for an example15:18
sebnerRainCT: sudo apt-get remove kde*, gnome ftw :P15:19
loolYou don't need the whole MAGICKNAME, LDFLAGS, and IMLIBS; instead you simply PKG_CHECK_MODULES(MAGICKNAME, DispatchImage, [have_imagemagick=yes], [have_imagemagick=no])15:19
loolErr s/DispatchImage/ImageMagick15:19
stefanlsdlool: kk. thx. cant seem to find too much documentation of PKG_CHECK_MODULES.15:19
loolstefanlsd: You just PKG_CHECK_MODULES(FOO, [bar baz], [stuff run if bar baz are present], [stuff run if not])15:20
loolThat will set FOO_CFLAGS to pkg-config --cflags bar baz, and FOO_LIBS to pkg-config --libs bar baz15:21
RainCTsebner: yeah.. visually it gets 10/10 points, but somehow it's quite slowish (on the new laptop! o_O)15:21
lool(And will AC_SUBST them too BTW)15:21
loolstefanlsd: So you just run the PKG_CHECK_MODULES and do an AC_MSG_ERROR if not present (because you require imagemagick to build)15:21
loolif it's optional you don't AC_MSG_ERROR but you export some AM_CONDITIONAL which says that imagemagick support shouldn't build15:22
loolstefanlsd: With PKG_CHECK_MODULES, you almost only have to do the PKG_CHECK_MODULES; it's really easy15:22
loolstefanlsd: Do you have xine-libs's configure.ac?15:22
stefanlsdlool: yeah, i do.15:22
loolIt's the same thing, but they use the Wand .pc, not the ImageMagick.pc one15:23
loolAlso it has a flag to build without imagemagick (AC_ARG_WITH([imagemagick] ...)15:23
loolstefanlsd: So 1) it checks whether imagemagick was requested on configure command line; 2) if not disabled or if not specified it checks Wand.pc with PKG_CHECK_MODULES15:24
lool3) if it was requested and isn't present, it fails (AC_MSG_ERROR); otherwise it's disabled15:25
lool4) it sets the HAVE_WAND AM conditional to use in the build rules (Makefile.am)15:25
loolstefanlsd: Note: AC_SUBST(WAND_CFLAGS) and AC_SUBST(WAND_LIBS) aren't needed15:25
loolIt's done by PKG_CHECK_MODULES already15:25
loolSo it's 10 lines to handle all cases; if you like you can do simpler by not handling any configure flags and always failing when im is missing; you don't need a conditional either in this case; but it's less elegant of course15:26
loolstefanlsd: Is this any clearer, or am I confusing you further?15:26
stefanlsdlool: thanks. that was great. i think its getting a bit clearer :).   Wand.pc is provided by whatever libary provides wand i presume?  do all libs provide .pc files?15:29
stefanlsdand the problem with this configure is not that they use AC_CHECK_LIB, but they mix pkg-config and AC_CHECK_LIB and set variables that PKG_CHECK_MODULES would just do instead?15:31

voriani was booing15:46
perlluvervorian, loves KDE15:48
vorianfor realz perlluver :)15:48
loolstefanlsd: AC_CHECK_LIB requires the library path to be set properly, so it's an issue when IM is installed in special locations, or requires LDFLAGS to be located; they might have handled that, but it's overly complex to do it by hand and trivial with pkg-config (transparent even)15:51
loolstefanlsd: Yeah, the mixture of a high-level tool which can do the job to test whether you can use the low level calls didn't make sense really15:52
loolstefanlsd: No, not all libs provide .pc; IM did for a while15:52
loolWhen you have one, it's best to use it unless you care for supporting older version of the lib which didn't have it15:52

RainCTsoc: it isn't as difficult as it may seem :)18:23
socRainCT: i was planning that18:24
soci already filed a ITP18:24
RainCTsoc: lintian just told me that debian/bug/script is missing the executable bit18:24
RainCTsoc: excellent :)18:25
socbut i thought it might to faster if it gets into ubuntu, so the debian people can sync it from there ...18:25
slytherinjames_w: one of the patch is irrelevant. The other will be if package builds.18:25
socRainCT: mhh weird, i had the +x set ...18:26
slytherinjames_w: A quick look says the other one is still relevant. And the package contains .jar files. :-(18:26
RainCTsoc: well, that shouldn't really make a difference to them, afaik they have no rules to automatically accept packages from Ubuntu (like we do with those from Debian)18:26
socah ok18:26
socwhat should i do to get it into debian?18:27
RainCTsoc: upload to mentors.debian.net and ask for review on the ML (info on the website)18:27
RainCTsoc: congrats on your first package being uploaded to Ubuntu! :)18:29
RainCTsoc: Uhm.. that Dust theme mentioned in your LP profile looks great. Count with a review from me if you ever happen to package it :P18:30
soccoll, thanks :-)18:30
socmhh ok, i'll look into it18:30
RainCTsoc: is it ready for use already'18:31
socyes, even using it with that QGtkStyle18:34
soci'll ask the author which version he would recommend18:34
socand then i'll try to do a package ...18:34
* RainCT hugs soc :)18:35
POXRainCT: I never accepted a new package without some fixes first (and I'm not talking about cosmetic changes) and some of them were already accepted in Ubuntu (including yours, IIRC), so I doubt there will be automatic sync... :-P18:35
POX(and I sponsored >200 packages)18:35
ScottKPOX: I think it goes both ways.  Pyke got into Debian just fine ....18:36
POXyeah, RC bugs happen in packages prepared by DDs as well :)18:37
socRainCT: ok, against which package should i file the bug to package Dust?18:45
RainCTargh.. why does IRC reconnect every time I switch from wifi to ethernet connection or the other way around? :/18:46
RainCTsoc: no package18:46
RainCTsoc: just against the Ubuntu distribution18:46
socah ok18:47
POXI think more important reason why Ubuntu package cannot be synced in Debian is that Ubuntu packages usually have a mailing list set as maintainer and even if they don't, there's no guarantee that maintainer wants to receive bugs from Debian18:47
POXsoc: is your package Python related?18:47
socPOX: no, just some fonts18:48
socRainCT: dust is already in universe18:49
socit is in community-themes18:49
RainCTsoc: ah, cool. So I guess you can strike that point from your list :P18:49
socmhh, i didn't see that as well until now18:49
soci'll have to check which version is in there ...18:49
socbecause the current 0.2 release had some bugs already fixed in trunk ...18:50
socmaybe i file an update request ...18:50
maxbRainCT: Because you change IP address, no?18:50
RainCTmaxb: nope, both are connected to the same router18:51
RainCTsoc: what name does the package have18:52
ScottK-desktopRainCT: You reconnect to the router with a different IP/Source port combination.18:52
socRainCT: which package?18:53
RainCTsoc: for dust18:53
soc it is in community-themes18:53
RainCTsoc: ah, thanks18:53
RainCTScottK-desktop: and applications need to reconnect because of that?18:54
ScottK-desktopSure, it's a new connection.18:54
RainCTbah, that sux :P18:55
RainCTBtw, pbuilder-dist.new should be ready for use now. If anyone is bored please try it :)18:57
slaytonif I delete a file from the debian/<package>.install file, will it be excluded from the final packaged deb?18:58
RainCTslayton: most likely, yes18:58
slaytonbut not for sure?18:58
RainCTslayton: if the package is weird and also installs it from debian/rules or something then it will still be there. but that would be *very* weird :P18:59
POX... or upstream's script (Makefile?) which is invoked in debian/rules installs it19:00
RainCTyeah, that'd be another possibility19:00
POXor clean rule is broken19:01
POXor... ;)19:01
Laneyhttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates doesn't say anything about waiting for -sru ack (between 3 and 4 in "Procedure"). What is the actual procedure here?19:16
ScottKGenerally for Main you upload and ubuntu-sru reviews it in the queue, but for Universe you get the ack first.19:22
LaneyScottK: Just one ack?19:26
Laneygood, that's easy then19:27
socRainCT_: should i archive ttf-droid now?19:41

agentblue9Hi, I want to get more involved with packaging and MOTU and would like to find a mentor to work with.   I've contributed a debdiff to bug #293722 and would like to do a lot of bite-size things like this to gain experience.  Any guidance greatly appreciated. Thanks!20:48

maxbWhen you move a file from one binary package to another, is it documented anywhere precisely what the Replaces/Conflicts should look like?21:05
loic-mAnyone to review the ecm package on REVU ( http://revu.ubuntuwire.com/details.py?package=ecm )? It's a small program, simrunbasuita has already reviewed it and I've made the suggested changes ;)21:06
slytherinsoc: the source first enters into NEW queue. When it is cleared from queue the package is built and the binary enters the new queue.21:07
slytherinsoc: https://edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/jaunty/+queue21:07
socah thanks!21:07
loic-mEcm is a neat program to remove error correction codes on isos for decreasing their size (and for better compression)21:08

StevenKOpenoffice 3.0 has already hit Jaunty21:08

RainCTuhm.. can someone explain to me what AllowTcpForwarding in SSH/SFTP is for?21:43
slytherinRainCT: some context please? What is 'AllowTcpForwarding'? Is it a configuration parameter on server side?21:51
RainCTslytherin: yes21:51
RainCTslytherin: I've seen it here;21:51
jpdsRainCT: man sshd_config21:51
RainCTjpds: that doesn't help, I want to know what TCP forwarind is for :P21:52
slytherinRainCT: Have you ever done port forwarding over ssh?21:53
RainCTso that's what people use to "workaround" blocked ports, or what?21:53
jpdsRainCT: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunneling_protocol#SSH_tunneling21:54
slytherinRainCT: when you login to an ssh server, you can bind a local port to a remote host:port on the machine to which you are connecting.21:54
RainCTok, thanks21:55
slytherinRainCT: the example command is 'ssh -L 10000: server'. This way when you access localhost:10000, you are actually accessing in the network of the ssh server.21:56
RainCTslytherin: ok, I see :)21:59
