Since Debian 6 (squeeze) this is the working method to disable permanent IPv6.
This is reboot safe too.
If you have no possibility to restart your system yet, this change can be made immediately work by executing:
sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.d/disable-ipv6.conf
Anothe method – perfect for firewall scripts:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6
At each system restart, userspace messages will be logged to “/var/log/boot”.
This will help to analyse problems on remote systems, like you have a monitor during a boot progress. Continue reading ‘Debian activate bootlogd’
Inetd listens for connections on certain sockets. When a connection is found on one of its sockets, it decides what service the socket corresponds to, and invokes a program to service the request. The server program is invoked with the service socket as its standard input, output and error descriptors.
Essentially, inetd allows running one daemon to invoke several others Continue reading ‘Internet Super Server’
This will be about how to “bond” two Ethernet connections together to create an virtual auto failover interface.
If you have from the same ISP (internet service provider) two redundant (different) uplinks, you could create a failover solution.
Debian way installation – was tested on debian squeeze.
First we install the ifenslave-2.6 package, necessary to enable bonding on the system:
apt-get install ifenslave-2.6
Next we configure some network stuff Continue reading ‘Bonding’
Attention this tutorial was written for ARM-Based systems in my case it was a Trim-Slice system, without MBR (without grub). It was a plain Debian without Kernel and boot loader
