  • A Visual Git Reference – This page gives brief, visual reference for the most common commands in git. Once you know a bit about how git works, this site may solidify your understanding.
  • SSH_VPN – Community Help Wiki – This page discusses using SSH to set up SSH-based point to point connections, which can then be used to create routes that create virtual private networks. Note that using SSH in this fashion is not the "best" way to create a permanent, stable VPN. Notably, SSH uses TCP, and TCP over TCP can provide abysmal performance under pathological conditions.
  • VPN over SSH – This how-to is intended to cover the details of how to establish a VPN (Virtual Private Network) over a SSH connection. Starting with open-ssh 4.3, you can now use a ssh connection to set up a VPN. This is technically termed "layer-3 IP-in-SSH tunnelling" and is not using ssh to port forward (ssh -L ) or create a dynamic "application level" forwarding (SOCKS) (ssh -D ). Rather a VPN is established using a SSH connection to create a virtual interface, tun0. Advantages : IMO, this technique is easier to set up then openvpn, especially if you are using a single client. Works with most Linux distributions without the need to install any additional software on the clients. The server only needs openssh-server. This protocol uses udp to transmit tunneled tcp connections resulting in a more stable connection compared with port forwarding (using ssh with the -L or -D options). Disadvantages : As of yet I do not know of a windows client which will use this protocol. If you are needing to set up a VPN with numerous clients I would use openvpn. Although there are several "how-to's" on the web, most of them assume you know something about networking and routing. This page attempts to explain some of the "missing details".

  • SIAMO GEEK – Sperimentatori, entusiasti della tecnologia | Rigenerare le chiavi ssh – Quanto è vecchia la vostra chiave ssh? Rigenerare le chiavi ssh usate per collegarsi ai server è una rottura di scatole, ma potrebbe essere una rottura di molte unità di grandezza inferiore rispetto allo scoprire che una chiave ssh viene usata da mesi a nostra insaputa. Quanto sono corte/lunghe le chiavi ssh registrate nei file authorized-keys dei vostri server? Per fortuna a questa ultima domanda c’è una risposta veloce sotto forma di un pratico script shell.
  • Downloading Java RPM from wget | Giuseppe Paternò – This is a very basic post, but I consider it for myself rather for public consumption.

I needed to find the cookies that Oracle website uses for “accepting” Oracle license to use properly wget from command line.
