The Domain Hoster InterNetworX (abbr. inwx) offers an XML-RPC interface to access its services. You can even register new domains. Documentation of the XML-RPC API is available for download at https://www.inwx.de/de/download/file/api-current.zip (including examples in PHP & Java plus a PDF describing the API).
There is an operational test environment (ote) to...
As I'm not a lawyer, I can't tell you if the following pieces of advice are really needed, just enough or not necessary. I will further investigate the topic and you will be able to read about my findings here.
Deactivate Apache logging
Set the following Apache2 directives in your apache config...
Mount SSH filesystems
My personal favorite: Fuse4X
Use with this distribution of SSHFS: https://github.com/fuse4x/sshfs
See my dedicated blog post on SSHFS on Mac OS X 10.6.8 with Fuse4X!
Deprecated Option: MacFUSE sshfs using command line
First install MacFUSE.
Then get the sshfs binaries:
cd ~/Downloads svn co http://macfuse.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/filesystems/sshfs/binary sshfs-binaries
Redmine as Debian package:
- The core package is
redmine. Three packages (
redmine-*) provide correct dependencies for
- Several configurations are given as working examples in
- Explanations of how the configuration is dealt with are given in
- There is no per-instance support for plugins, but those dropped to
Manual and Up-To-Date...
More Loop Devices
To solve this problem:
mount: could not find any free loop device,
you have to increase the number of loop devices:
echo "options loop max_loop=64" > /etc/modprobe.d/local-loop.conf
SWAPFILE=/root/myswap # Create a file to use as swap with 1024 1MiB blocks (= 1 GiB): dd...

Defined in RFC 5156
::1/128is the loopback address
::/128is the unspecified address
::FFFF:0:0/96are the IPv4-mapped addresses (indicating devices that are not IPv6-capable)
::<ipv4-address>/96are the IPv4-compatible addresses, deprecated!
fe80::/10are the link-local unicast addresses
fc00::/7are the unique-local addresses
2001:db8::/32are the documentation addresses. They are used for documentation purposes such as user manuals,...
I was using an Asus wl-500g Premium router (hardware revision #1) running DD-WRT (I think it was version v24 preSP2 [Beta] Build 14311 mini). I decided to switch over to OpenWrt. The installation was dead simple. I just downloaded the .trx firmware image for the brcm47xx target (linux 2.6) from...
The privacy extensions as defined in RFC4941 make your device change its IP every now and then.
Privacy addresses are not enabled by default. Their generation is activated via the
use_tempaddr that can be set to one of the following values:
0don't use privacy extensions.
1generate privacy addresses
On Debian and Ubuntu, getting IPv6 connectivity is as easy as running this command in terminal:
sudo apt-get install miredo
You should instantaneously be connected to the internet via IPv6 (provided you have a working IPv4 setup).
If you want to customize your IPv6 connectivity, you can edit the miredo configuration...
Mobile IP / Mobile IPv6 / mip6d seems to be quite dead at the moment:
- Have a look at the dates of the drafts of the IPv6 Mobility working group: http://tools.ietf.org/wg/mip6/index.pyht?sort=3&reverse=1.
- As Martin F. Krafft says in th section Mapping names to laptops of its IPv6 with Debian blog post,...
Define the tunnel in
You can simply put the following setup in your interfaces configuration file and this will allow you to set up your tunnel automatically at startup or manually using
# Please refer to <http://www.sixxs.net/faq/connectivity/?faq=ossetup&os=linuxdebian> for further information auto sixxs iface
Using the CLI tool
I wrote the following script to set up the tunnelbroker.net IPv6 6in4 tunnel on Linux using the
ip command. You have to adjust the constants to the values given on the tunnelbroker.net site on the tunnel that you created. Just execute it and you should be...
Hurricane Electric provides free IPv6 tunnels via the 6in4 protocol on the website tunnelbroker.net. After signing up, one can create up to 5 tunnels. When settings up a standard tunnel, one has to provide one's endpoint IPv4 address which may change from time to time (moving around or 24-hour...
I wanted to have a closer look into Arch Linux and so I downloaded the x86-64 netinstall image from http://www.archlinux.org/download/. I created a virtual machine and started by using the .iso image as boot device. The installation was pretty smoth, no surprises for a Linux user.
