Apache not working on alternate port
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 31, 2010
I have tried setting apache up on port 8000, because my ISP blocks port 80.
When I try to listen on just port 8000, I can never connect, internally or externally. When I try to listen on both 8000 and 80, my internal computers will drop the 8000 from the url and connect on 80, and external computers try to do the same thing, but can't get through on port 80.
I know my router is set up correctly, I have 80, 8000, and 8888 all being forwarded, I have confirmed with pcflank.com that 80 is blocked, but 8000 and 8888 are open. I am able to connect to gnump3d through port 8888 internally and externally, but not apache2 on port 8000.
netstat -tnap confirms that apache is running and listening on ports 80 and 8000 to all users.
So I'm at a loss here for how to fix this, any ideas?
SSH over SSH: port forwarding
- date: February 6, 2011
I have 3 computers; XP, Mac and Ubuntu. I wanted to use Mac connect to Ubuntu by using SSH and also wanted to port forwarding 5999 to Ubuntu's ssh as well. But I got connection refused all the time. Please Help
This is my command on my Mac:
ssh -L 5999:ubuntu:22 [email protected]
it's connected successfully.
But when I used XP to connect to Mac via ssh port 5999: ssh winxp -p 5999. I got connected refused. What I was expecting is, I could connect to ubuntu from winxp via mac on port 5999
Am I missing something here?
Thank you so much.
Cannot remove symbolic link to directory.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 19, 2003
and created a symbolic link to dir2:
ln -s ~/dir1/dir2 ~/symlink
Now I can't remove symlink! I get the errors:
rm: cannot remove directory 'testsymboliclink/': Is a directory
rmdir: 'testsymboliclink/': Not a directory
This is REALLY weird. I even cannot
unlink: 'testsymboliclink/': Not a directory
I can't even remove the link, if the dir is empty. Please help me...
[SOLVED] Anybody having luck in creating man pages?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 20, 2013
I'm trying to create some man pages...actually tutorials in man page format.
The reason behind is, most of the time i work in CLI mode. i also use gui when i want to browse internet/youtube, watch movies or listen to music. Worse than that is, since most of my tutorials/notes that i have created are in Microsoft OneNote format, so not only i have to keep X11, but also in VirtualBox "Win-7 => Office 2010" virtual machine. This has become really frustrating.. work in tty...press <ctrl><alt><f1> and goto GUI...open VirtualBox...open Windows OS...open OneNote...Hit again <ctrl><alt><f2>.. and continue..etc. Not only i'm unable to leave behind Windows OS and x11, but i'm also wasting a lot of time for just switching from this to that and again from that to this...
I solved most of my problems by switching to some of cli applications.
Split terminal => tmux
Browser => links2 -g
Video => cvlc
Music => cmus

So I have a path to Matlab, which I use a lot: "./Documents/Programming/Matlab/bin/matlab"
How can I add an icon in the Unity bar with the path above, so don't always have to write it on the Terminal??
Thanks a lot.
wifi on 12.04 and other questions
location: linux.com - date: May 13, 2013
I have been using 12.04 happily since installing it. After a crash recently (from wubi) I reinstalled it with a usb stick. All works fine but suddenly, I can't use wifi. It recognizes the signal and shows that it is strong. But Wifi Radar also shows other signals. It just won't connect.
On Windows 7, however(which I also have for emergencies), all is well.
Is this an OS issue, am I missing something... that I also need to reinstall? Any commands that I could use? Or is it just that there is too much interference? (If so, why does it work with Windows?) Is there any way I could block these signals?
Also, I'd like to know which usb sticks are compatable with linux, and how many GB's are needed. I tried to load 13.04 on mine, 4GB and it wasn't eneough.
I know that these might sound like silly questions to those who are more experienced, but I would greatly appreciate any help. (My 60 yr. old brain is slow in learning )
