Netstat is a command line utility that can be used to list out all the network (socket) connections on a system. It lists out all the tcp, udp socket connections and the unix socket connections.

So in this tutorial we shall be checking out few examples of how to use netstat to find information about network connections and open ports on a system. read more...

Parsix 5.0 review

Up
vote
Down

Simple because I did not see any point in it. The distribution wasn’t bringing anything new to the table, and the custom-coded installer was several steps removed (in the wrong direction) from that of its parent distribution. But that was back in 2011, which for a distribution with a 6-month release cycle, is a long time. read more...

Up
vote
Down

This tutorial explains how to install Debian Wheezy (testing) with the help of debootstrap from a Grml Live Linux system (like it is used as a rescue system at Webtropia). This should work - with minor changes - for other Debian and Ubuntu versions as well. By following this guide, it is possible to configure the system to your needs (OS version, partitioning, RAID, LVM, etc.) instead of depending on the few pre-configured images that your server provider offers. read more...

Linpus Lite 1.9 review

Up
vote
Down

Linpus Lite is one of those distributions that I’ve always hoped will be done right, considering that it is published by a commercial entity. However, with every release, it manages to fail in taking care of the little things that matter. Almost every desktop distribution suffers from the same problem. They get the big picture, but then it comes to delivering sane and sensible defaults and implementing features that a modern OS should have, they miss the mark. read more...

TuxOnIce: Hibernate Linux

Up
vote
Down

TuxOnIce is most easily described as the Linux equivalent of Windows' hibernate functionality, but better. It saves the contents of memory to disk and powers down. When the computer is started up again, it reloads the contents and the user can continue from where they left off. No documents need to be reloaded or applications reopened and the process is much faster than a normal shutdown and start up. read more...

Fedora 17 GNOME beta, as well as the beta of the KDE, LXDE and Xfce Spins, were released yesterday – almost two weeks past due date. This, however, is not highly unusual for the Fedora project. Unlike Ubuntu, their release schedule is not cast in concrete. They are more interested in getting stuff that works out the door, instead of shoving something out to meet a set deadline.

Even for a beta release. read more...
