Our FAQ section is updated in last few days with new howtos:

  • Linux Network IP Accounting – I need to know how much data are transmitted on my ppp0 network or eth0 Internet links? How do I set IP accounting by address such as 123.1.2.3 and 123.1.2.4? How do I set IP accounting per Apache virtual domain? How do I set accounting by service port (http, smtp) and protocol (tcp, udp, icmp)? How do I record how much traffic each of the clients computer is using?
  • Linux / UNIX: DNS Lookup Command – How do I perform dns lookup under Linux or UNIX or OS X operating systems without using 3rd party web sites for troubleshooting DNS usage?
  • Linux: Find Out Which Process Is Listening Upon a Port – How do I find out running processes were associated with each open port? How do I find out what process has open tcp port 111 or udp port 7000 under Linux?
  • Google Apps Domain Create SPF Records For BIND or Djbdns – I work for a small business and outsourced our email hosting to Google. However, I noticed that spammers are using our From: First Last to send their spam messages. All bounced messages come to our catch only account. How do I stop this? How do I validate our domain using SPF? How do I configure a SPF for Google Apps domain using BIND 9 or djbdns?
    Mac Os X: Mount NFS Share / Set an NFS Client – How do I access my enterprise NAS server by mounting NFS filesystem onto my Mac OS X based system using GUI and command line based tools?
  • Explains: echo Command (echo $”string”) Double-quoted String Preceded By a Dollar Sign – I noticed that many shell scripts in /etc/init.d/ directory use the following syntax – echo $”Usage $prog start|stop|reload|restart”. Why a double-quoted string preceded by a dollar sign ($”string”) using the echo command under Linux / UNIX bash scripts?

Ubuntu has the strongest chance to take Linux mainstream
Interesting interview with Samba’s Jeremy Allison – Samba project founder.

Comming soon: Wine 64 bit For 64 bit MS-Windows application
I can finally report success on the first ever win64 program running on wine. The program was a textbook classic, but to make it work gcc had to be changed a lot. This was done by Kai Tietz, who has put a lot of effort in the task of making gcc accept the calling convention.

Windows XP: The OS That Won’t Quit
Dell announced it will offer systems with the aging Windows XP for a surcharge of US$150 over the newer Windows Vista–this only five months after it stopped offering XP on its Inspiron consumer desktop and laptop PCs. May be it’s time to move on to Linux ;)

Linux scalability and performance notes from Facebook

How to sync Evolution with Google’s PIM apps
While I’m a die-hard Google user — especially the PIM apps — I still appreciate offline applications for the integration with the desktop, speed, and features they sport. The Evolution contact and calendaring application is a great example: it’s as feature-packed as Microsoft Outlook, but with GNOME integration, and it’s fast. Gmail, by comparison, is slow and lacks any desktop integration. In a perfect world, Evolution would sync with Google’s PIM apps. Unfortunately, there aren’t any good, easy-to-use, comprehensive guides for setting up Evolution to sync with all of these apps — until now.
