Smart Managed Swith or Unmanaged ?

What's the difference between cisco managed switch or unmanaged if I should plan in an unmanaged switch or a managed switch (planing to buy Cisco most likely).I don's see a point of buying a smart managed or even managed switch. Any suggestion ?

 

Top 7 Desktop Environment for linux

Hi, This article is to update you regarding what are the desktop environment are there you should aware of. Standard Linux circulations regularly default to one of two desktop environments, KDE or GNOME. Both of these give clients an instinctive and attractive desktop, and also offering a verity of media inbuilt softwares, system programs, games, utilities, web development tools, programming tools and so on. These two desktops center all the more on giving clients a cutting edge computing environment with all the accessories emphasized in Windows OS, instead of minimizing the measure of system resources they require.

RSync Command to Backup and Synchronize Files in Linux

RSync or Remote Sync is the Linux command usually used for backup of files/directories and synchronizing them locally or remotely in an efficient way. One of the reasons of why RSync is preferred over all other alternatives is the speed of operation, RSync copies the chunk of data to other location at a significantly faster rate. This is because, whenever Rsync is executed for the very first occasion, it transfers all the data from source to the destination. On the next turn, it would just copy the files/directories whose contents are changed.

    Another plus point of using this utility is, as it makes use of SSH protocol to encrypt the data to be replicated, so it is much more secure and trustworthy. One more advantage of using Rsync is, as it performs compression of the data at source end and decompresses it at the destination, the bandwidth used during the sync operation will be considerably less. Also, the file permissions, their user/group information and the timestamps is/can be preserved.

Syntax:

rsync [OPTIONS] SOURCE DESTINATION

Important Options:
-v : indicates Verbose mode which provides detailed information.
-r : indicates Recursive operation, timestamps and file permissions are not preserved
-a : indicates Archive mode,timestamps and file permissions are preserved
-z : indicates Compression, it compresses the data before it is transferred to destination.
-h : indicates Human Readable output format.

Sound branding Linux Distributions

As I watch the wallpapers of Linux Mint 17 cinnamon I wonder. What is the music that goes along with these images? This gives me the idea that each Linux distribution release could have its own music. A small playlist of creative commons music. I think relaxing, acoustic or very good audiophile recordings are a given choice. Then you probably would want a dedicated way of playing these. Here I'm thinking of a simple toggle button on the panel and a fast key.

Giayee $49 P105 Quard-Core ARM Ubuntu/Android Mini PC--a more powerful alternative to Raspberry Pi

There is no denying the fact that Raspberry Pi has helped raise awareness of the possibilities for not only small but also inexpensive computers. But it's not powerful enough to do some CPU-heavy work, while faster options are emerging for users attracted to such board-like devices.
Giayee P105 Quard-Core ARM Ubuntu/Android Mini PC is just a powerful alternative.

Giayee P105 is based on a Quad core 1.6GHz Rockchip RK3188 SoC with integrated GPU (quad Mali-400), enabling the device to run as a server (email, file, web) and also as a media center. Although Raspberry Pi can do these things also but Giayee P103C is faster. Besides, Giayee P103C can support high-end features such as 1080P video.

Compared with Raspberry Pi's one HDMI port, Giayee P103C supports VGA port, with 16 or 32bpp color depth, can be set up to 1920x1080 definition. The Giayee P105's three USB ports also gives it a bit more breathing room, relative to the one on BeagleBone Black.

There are two configurations depending on which CPU ,how much RAM and on-board flash storage you want. The less expensive Giayee P105 goes for $49 and has Rockchip RK3168 Dual core ARM Cortex A9 1.2GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of flash.By comparation the BeagleBone Black revision C has a single core ARM with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of flash and is offered at $55.

Giayee P105 will blow your doors off with high-performance specs, but it will not blow all the cash in your wallet. If you want a small low-powered, low-cost but powerful machine Giayee P105 might be just what you are looking for. Even if you are happy with your current device, this would make a great gift or perhaps a great backup device.

 

Legal Issues Related To Cloud Hosting

In South Africa, President Zuma recently signed a Privacy Protection Act into law. Various countries have similar laws in place.

Section 11 of said Act makes it a criminal offence to divulge/make known any personal details, contact information, etc., by any person to a third party. It seems a bit drastic but service providers, retailers, even banks have been selling contact details without consent.

This leaves one in a position where you may end up with a criminal record if you have been using cloud services to synchronize contacts, calendars, tasks, etc., via services such as Google and it gets leaked from there. The recent 145 million exposed accounts at eBay comes to mind.

In a criminal court, the state prosecutor may argue that the "reasonable man" should have foreseen such leaks, based upon the history of successful hacking attempts. It could be argued that the user should have refrained from using cloud services.


The sad thing is that, especially for Linux users, there currently is no local sync alternative, except for those who have the resources to run a server with something like ownCloud. Most users simply have no options as device manufacturers are adamant about pushing everything through the cloud.


I stand corrected on this, but I am almost 100% sure that a legal advisor from New Zealand or Australia voiced a similar concern. It is my hope that someone really develops a user-friendly (read: newbie) solution that can be easily installed and configured, at least for Android devices as this is used by the majority.

 

How To : Install Webmin 1.690 - A Web Based Utility for System Administration in Ubuntu/Linux Mint

Webmin, an open-source tool written in Perl, is a web-based interface used for Linux system administration purposes. Webmin helps the users in user accounts management, disk quota management and file configurations. Not only this, with Webmin, ont can easily manage services like Apache server, MySQL, PHP and file sharing, to name a few. Being a web-based application, it uses TCP port 10000for handling the communication part through a web browser.

    This article will guide you to install the latest version on the said application - Webmin 1.690 in your Ubuntu/Linux Mint Systems (or Debian based systems I should say). Before that, make sure that you have installed LAMP server in your system. If you do not know how to do that, please refer to our article: LAMP Server- Installation and Configuration in Linux.

Fixes in This Version

  • Several security fixes for XSS attacks in popup windows.
  • Added the Fail2Ban module, for blocking the IP addresses of systems that have many failed logins.
  • More German translation updates thanks to Raymond Vetter, Catalan from Jaume Badiella and Norwegian updates from Stein-Aksel Basma.
  • Fixed handling of the url_rewrite_children directive in the Squid module to support all the process count options.
  • Improved Ubuntu 14.04 support.
