18 commands to monitor network bandwidth on Linux server

10 examples of Linux ss command to monitor network connections

ss - socket statistics In a previous tutorial we saw how to use the netstat command to get statistics on network/socket connections. However the netstat command has long been deprecated and replaced by the ss command from the iproute suite of tools.

Samba Default Sabotaged Please Fix.

Quick background on me, Linux hobbits, burned out programmer, Novell guy that, 10 years ago got sick for a year, lost my company, and now work as the on-site guy for a national Geek company. not "squad".

I get customer getting systems upgrades or Dead HDD’s that want me to haul off their old equipment. So I play with Linux on the old systems, as a hobby not for a living. Been doing this for 10 years or so.

At the start of 2014, I stated getting a lot of old xp system, and down loaded my favorite Linux distro's and started installing...... Could not see Shared xp, win 7 systems. Thought it was just a bug with that release and tried another distro. Same problem, one after another, same problem. Would check boards and try lots of things and get it to work. But over and over on a fresh install, it would not see windows shares. Never had this problem before.

Remember this is a hobby, but after 2 months discovered the problem, small changes to smb.conf where made in the last 6 to 12 months that made it so you can't see XP, win 7 Shares “out of the box”.

I think this was a deliberate by “they who can not be named” that is if you don't want to get sued.

This was done in prep for the upcoming deadline. So that first time Linux installers would install a distro, not see other systems at home and give up on Linux.

Please change the Samba Default to see win shares.

Netbios section

Dns proxy = yes;

Set the “name resolve order” remove “;” by default and set order, I believe it is “bcast host lmhost wins”.
