kansanhow do i make this command happen if my ssh connection ever goes down?  ssh chef-client@chef-server00:58
mdeslaurkansan: you could use the "autossh" program01:02
kansanhwo do i set an enviormental variable01:02
kansananyone familair with autossh program?  why doesnt it work when i do :  autossh -M 20000 ?01:08

kansanhow do i make:  autossh chef-client@chef-server ... run as a background process?  (i'm invoking it from /etc/rc.local)01:48
andolkansan: autossh -f will put it in the background02:12

kansanhowever when i do :  audossh -M 20000 foo@server02:13
kansanit works fine02:13
kansanbut i dont want to actually go there02:13
kansanit doesnt work either when i do autossh -M 20000 foo@server &02:14
andolkansan: when you do it manually, do you do it as the root user?02:14
kansani'm root when i invoke autossh02:14

andolkansan: This is the solution I used when I had to run autossh at system startup: http://www.andreasolsson.se/2008/08/27/etcinitdautossh_tunnelfoo/02:15
andolHmm, must be second of third time I mention it in this channel :)02:15
kansanwhere do i put it02:16
kansanand to invoke it?02:19
andolkansan: To invoke it manualy: /etc/init.d/autossh.thename start02:22
kansanwhy do you need autossh.thename02:22
kansanwhy not just /etc/init.d/autossh02:22
andolkansan: Because then you would only be able to have one autossh run from /etc/init.d02:22
kansanisnt that what i awnt?02:23
andolkansan: In your case /etc/init.d/autossh would probably do fine. I was thinking more on a general level.02:24
kansandoes all stuff in /etc/init.d get auto booted at startup?02:24
andolkansan: No, you have active it first02:25
kansanandol, how do i do that02:25
andolkansan: An easy way to manage those scripts on a server is to install the package sysvconfig02:26
kansanthis doesnt work02:27
kansani cant enable/disable anything in this way :(02:27
kansanhitting ok doesnt do anything02:27
andolkansan: 1) start sysvconfig, 2) Move to Enable/Disable, presss enter, 3) Move to the services you want to change, toggle using <space>, 4) When you done, tab to <OK> and press enter, 5)Select Finnished <enter>, 6) Quit <enter>02:29

orogorhi , i did just enabled ipv6, but it seems that any site which allow to test if i am in ipv6 dont reconise me as connected via ipv6, could this be dues to the fact that ia m running iptables?10:27
Nafalloorogor: no. ipv6 uses ip6tables10:29

TumieHi guys, i've got an problemm with my SSH connection with my server, i connect with the command "ssh <ip>" is this right ?11:02
andolTumie: That sounds about right. You might also have to specify username if that differs from the host your connection from.11:09
Tumieandol: it is the same11:18
Tumiei'm not logged in on the server, is that a problem maybe ?11:18
andolTumie: What is happening, and what do you expect to happen?11:24
TumieI want to connect with my Server (that has Ubuntu Server 8.10 on  it),, from my desktop (Ubuntu Desktop 8.10) in the terminal..11:25
Tumiei only started the server up,, so i'm not logged in at the server itself..11:25
andolYes, but what is the respons you get when you run the command: "ssh ip-number" from your desktop computer?11:27
Tumieand some other text11:30
andolTumie: Reinstalled it rescently? Have you using ssh to connect to it before the reinstall?11:32
TumieI reinstalled the whole server yesterday11:33
andolTumie: That explains it :)11:33
Tumiewhat to do about it ? (and reinstalling doesn't get rid of all the old files :O )11:33
andolTumie: When the server got reinstalled it also got new sshd-crypto-keys. That is why your desktop computer warns you, since it's a "new" computer on the old ip adress.11:34
andolTumie: It should be ok to remove the offending line from your ~/.ssh/known_hosts11:34
Tumietheir are 3 lines at that file..11:35
Tumieall highly coded11:35
Tumiei deleted all lines11:36
Tumieit is working now :D11:36
Tumiethanks :D11:36

ubottuwebmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. See !ebox instead.11:37

TumieHow do i Fully delete Webmin ?12:32
NafalloTumie: by not installing it in the first place.12:32
TumieI already installed it.... :|12:32
Nafallosorry if that's a bit unhelpful, but that's probably the best way of doing it...12:32
Tumieand it is very annoying12:33
Nafalloyes. webmin have a tendancy to be just that...12:34
Tumieyou are annoying..12:36
jpds!webmin | Tumie12:42
ubottuTumie: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. See !ebox instead.12:42
Tumiejpds, i already know, that is the reason i want to delete it :)12:42
Nafalloehrm. I'm annoying cause I'm saying that I'm not aware of a way to completely revert what failmin have done... oh well. sometimes the truth can be annoying, that shouldn't kill the messenger.12:44
m4dm4nNafallo, your answer was anything but helpful.12:49
m4dm4nif we go back in time, it would've been a great suggestion, but unfortunately.. we can't12:50
Nafallooh well. I'm stepping down from this discussion. I've already made my opinion clear, and that is that you can't revert webmin in any sane way.12:51
Nafallosorry if that isn't considered helpful enough.12:52
m4dm4n"by not installing it in the first place" is what i can see... nothing about simply saying it cannot be done in a sane way.12:53
m4dm4nbut.. your welcome.12:53
Nafallologically that relates to the point I was trying to make :-)12:53
m4dm4nyes, in a sarcastic way.. it wasn't really needed.12:54
Nafallowasn't mean in such a way, but text on IRC gets easily missinterpreted.12:55
m4dm4nnevermind now though.12:55
Nafalloagreed :-)12:55
mc68040hi all, i need to setup a 8.04 lts server. how can i ensure to install/use only packages with support until 2013?12:57
ivoksuse only main repository12:57
mc68040ivoks: i think in main are the desktop packages too. they are only supported until 201112:58
ivoksmc68040: don't use X librariers and you are fine12:58
ivoksmc68040: basicaly, packages in main which don't require desktop, are supported for 5 years12:59
ivoksdoes anyone know is it possible to mirror ports.ubuntu.com over rsync?13:00
mc68040ivoks: ok, i assume thats true for hardy-security and hardy-updates too?13:01
ivoksmc68040: well, only hardy-security and hardy-updates get changes13:02
ivoksmc68040: no new packages are released in 'default' repository13:02
mc68040ivoks: ups, you are right, i should think a bit before13:03
Nafalloivoks: tried rsync ports.ubuntu.com:: ?13:06
ivoksNafallo: i figured it out :)13:06
ivoks14:04 < ivoks> bah, just ignore me :)13:06
ivokson #ubuntu-mirrors13:06
Nafallodamn cross-talker :-P13:06
mc68040ivoks: i would prefer a better way to ensure to use only packages with support until 2013, but thx for your help13:09
ivoksmc68040: afaik, there's no better way13:09
ivoksi guess adding aditional filed to debian/control could help13:09
mc68040lol, had just the same idea :-)13:10
mc68040or to split hardy into hardy-server and hardy-desktop...13:11
ivoksand where would you put bash?13:11
ivoksor udev, upstart, or... :)13:11
mc68040in both of course13:12
ivoksso, bash, supported for 5 years would be in hardy-desktop13:13
ivoksbut hardy-desktop is supported for 3 years13:13
ivokser...? :)13:13
mc68040why not, nobody says that support on desktop must end 201113:14
ivokswell, it won't be that bad..13:14
ivoksit ends in 201113:14
ivoksbut in 2011 hardy-desktop could be removed13:14
ivoksand that's it13:14
ivoksbut hardy-desktop-updates doesn't sound quite good13:15
mc68040hmmm, so dont split but setup an additional hardy-server, hardy-server-updates and hardy-server-security?13:16
ivoksthat's not that easy as it sounds13:18
orogorNafallo, got ipv6 fully working , only issue seems to be that ip6tables on ubuntu doesn t like ulog13:19
mc68040ivoks: why not? building Pacckage files from special package lists shouldnt be so difficult13:20
ivoksmc68040: you are talking with a wrong person13:20
ivoksmc68040: you should raise this quetions on ubuntu-server mailing list13:21
ivoksi don't decide how archives are going to be organized; i just mirror them :D13:21
mc68040i think ill do :-)13:21
ivoksmc68040: for political point of view13:21
ivokscanonical isn't the only company providing support for ubuntu13:22
ivoksso, enforcing one companys 'rules' on ubuntu's archives doesn't sound quite fair13:22
ivokshaving additional filed in debian/control sounds much better13:22
ivoksX-Supported by: Canonical 5 years, XYZ 10 years13:23
ivoksor something like that13:23
ivoksnot that i have something against canonical :D13:23
Nafalloorogor: kewl13:24
mc68040hmmm, i think we want the same - even other companys will have an advantage if they could distinct the packages13:24
ivoksfor example, i watch over hylafax, since lots of my clients use it13:25
ivoksit isn't supported by canonical13:25
ivoksbut my clients get regullar fixes, since that's software they really care about13:25
mc68040you are right, there will always be packages that wont be supported by canonical13:27
ivoksif we could achive that interested groups maintain package, a not core-dev and motus, then, i think, we could achive better quality of packages and even could set up 'supported' queues13:27
ivokss/ a / and /13:27
ivokswhith core-dev having fully access to everything13:28
mc68040i just dont want to minimize work, why should i watch a package if its still supported by someone else?13:28
ivoksand motu to all stuf universe13:28
mc68040lol -"dont"13:29
ivoksyou may have interest in pushing some changes13:29
mc68040yes, thats what i want13:30
ivokscommon good is mixed of all individual interest13:30
ivoksif that's correct word in english :)13:30
mc68040but i need a solid, well supported base which i dont want to take care of13:30
ivoksmc68040: 14:28 < ivoks> whith core-dev having fully access to everything13:31
ivokslaunch time... take care13:31
mc68040ok, bye13:31

oomkilleranyone familiar with the ufw syntax in before.rules to tell me how to forward a port?22:44
oomkilleri have masquerading setup, but i can't figure out how to forward a port22:44
rdw200169oomkiller, using ufw, right?22:48
rdw200169hmm... i know how to do it with iptables22:49
oomkillerwell its essentially the same thing22:49
rdw200169ufw is an abstraction layer on top of iptables22:49
rdw200169ah, so you know22:49
oomkilleryeah, i've read the wiki pages, just can't get a straightforward example for a port forward22:50
oomkillerbasically i think i need to -A ufw-before-forward ...22:50
oomkillerbut i don't know what goes after that22:50
rdw200169well, good luck; i'm not gonna learn ufw b/c i already know iptables ;)22:50
oomkillerrdw200169: can you tell me how to forward it in iptables?  i can translate it easily22:51
oomkillerthe real difference is a terser syntax, 99% of the rules are the same22:51
rdw200169-A PREROUTING -i wlan0 -p udp -m udp --dport 20:21 -j DNAT --to-destination
rdw200169there's an example of how i forward udp ftp traffic through my desktop22:52
oomkillerhmm ok22:52
oomkillerwhat is -j DNAT?22:52
oomkilleror more exactly, what is DNAT22:52
oomkilleris that something built into netfilter/iptables, or is it something you have to write22:53
rdw200169it's a NAT related target22:53
Deeepsyou'd also need to specify '-t nat' if operating from the command line, rather than in the :nat context already from the iptables-save output22:53
rdw200169ah yes, right Deeeps i just used the iptables-save output22:53
DeeepsDNAT - Destination NAT, port forwarding essentially22:54
Deeepsredirects packets that match the previously given rules to the new target22:54
oomkillerDeeeps: but thats not a another chain, its builtin, right?22:54
rdw200169PREROUTING? yes22:54
oomkillerok lets see22:54
Deeeps(DNAT too)22:54
oomkillerthe wiki page says that i should add the rules for forwarding to ufw-before-forward22:55
oomkilleri guess thats it's version of PREROUTING22:55
rdw200169ah, you need an explaination of how this whole mess works22:55
rdw200169gimme a sec.22:55
oomkillerbtw, anyone know how to scroll up with irssi, without a mouse?22:56
Deeepspage up key22:56
Deeepsalt+p and alt+n also if you haven't changed the default keybinds iirc22:56
oomkillerDeeeps: do you know of a way to "check" the rules before loading them with ufw?22:57
Deeepsno idea i'm afraid22:58
hadsSomething like firehol's try would be cool though22:58
oomkillerwell i'm about to try it23:00
oomkillerlets see if my rule works23:00
