2012-03-06 01:42:48 -0600 answered a question LAN and Internet Sharing

if you have a router or switch you can use straight cable and connect these two machines, if you do not have either then you can use cross cable to connect .

do the following on the Linux box on using which you are connected to Internet

Flush all the present rules

iptables -F

iptables -t nat -F

iptables -t mangle -F

Delete any rules you have

iptables -X

iptables -t nat -X

iptables -t mangle -X

service iptables save

service iptables restart

enable packet forwarding

echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

to make this change permanent you can copy the above line in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE

service iptables save

service iptables restart

now try to browse using the xp laptop , be sure they are in same subnet and routing tables is pointing to the linux box.

2012-01-30 05:44:05 -0600 marked best answer Video editing software

There are quite a few but the well known ones are

  • Pitivi: Gstreamer based. Available in the standard Fedora repositories and you can get additional codes from RPM Fusion. Quite simple and easy to get started.

  • Openshot: Actively developed and feature rich

  • Handbrake: A transcoder rather than a editor but there is overlap and I thought I will mention it anyway.

2011-09-29 23:47:38 -0600 marked best answer ttyrec runs Out of pty's

Ok, this looks like a bug.

So what you can do is:

  1. remove the installed ttyrec.
  2. wget and install the src rpm from
  3. go to the its source directory and untar it.

    tar -zxvf ttyrec-1.0.8.tar.gz

  4. patch the source with the included "ttyrec-Makefile.patch", then it works for UNIX98 pty standard.

    ttyrec-1.0.8]# patch -p1 < ../ttyrec-Makefile.patch1.2.3.3

  5. Make sure you have "libbsd-devel" installed, else

    yum install libbsd-devel

  6. make the source

    ttyrec-1.0.8]# make

  7. copy the binaries to /usr/bin

    ttyrec-1.0.8]# cp ttyrec ttytime ttyrecord /usr/bin/

  8. Execute "ttyrec"

2011-09-29 23:47:15 -0600 answered a question ttyrec runs Out of pty's

instead built the RPM

rpmbuild --rebuild ttyrec-1.0.8-2.src.rpm

it works now.

2011-09-29 04:56:22 -0600 asked a question ttyrec runs Out of pty's

2011-09-27 03:31:28 -0600 marked best answer ssh session freezes while connecting through vpnc

Try tweaking MTU settings:

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:1F:16:36:49:A5  
          inet addr:XXX.XX.XXX.XX  Bcast:XXX.XX.XXX.XXX  Mask:XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500   <<<<<<<<<<<<

An example command would be like:

# ifconfig eth0 mtu 1300

And, if this solves your problem, then set the appropriate MTU in your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 as:

hi, i am using vpnc-0.5.3-13.svn457.fc15.x86_64 , it connects well to the cisco vpn , then i initiate a ssh session to the servers , when i issue command like pwd, ls or date everything seems to be working fine but when i issues command like ls -la the session freezes and terminates what could be the reason.
