  1. The machine runs RHEL 4 ES, other cronjobs will run, but for whatever reason this one will not. 08 18 * * * /usr/sbin/slapcat -l /etc/openldap/backups/slapd-$(/bin/date +"%Y%m%d").ldif The command runs fine by it self, but for whatever reason when added with crontab -e it will not run. Also /var/log/cron shows Feb 27 18:08:01 hostname crond[19299]: (root) CMD (run-parts /usr/sbin/slapcat -l /etc/openldap/backups/slapd-$(/bin/date +") Also the cron job 18 18 * * * /bin/date +"%Y%m%d" > /tmp/file fails so I would imagine it has something to do with that. Anbody have any ideas? Thanks. EDIT: Found the problem. Escaping the percent sign with a backslash fixed the issue. Don't know why I didnt' try that sooner.
  2. If you are looking to chain socks/http proxy's try using proxy chains on *nix, and I think there is something called SocksCap for windows machines.
  3. Okay, so here is my predicament. I have an old proprietary NAS serving out files with NFS. I have another Linux box running nfsv4 with kerberos. Essentially I need to mount the share on the old proprietarty NAS on the new Linux box, which then needs to serve that out to clients. e.g. #mount -t nfs oldbox:/exports/oldnfs /etc/exports the new box has /exports gss/krb5(rw,sync,subtree_check,fsid=0) /exports/test gss/krb5(rw,sync,subtree_check) /exports/oldnfs gss/krb5(rw,sync,subtree_check) The clients do mount -t nfs4 -o sec=krb5 newbox:/ /nfs Now ls /nfs/test works fine. However, ls /nfs just hangs, same with ls /nfs/oldnfs, just hangs. Also, making a symlink with ln -s does not work either. It just de-references on the client end. ASCII diagram nfsv4 nfsv3 /-------->client3 [old box]------>[newbox]------>client1 \------->client2 So, what am I to do. Also, how do I even google this? Maybe this is not the correct way to do this. If so let me know. Thanks
  4. I don't think these really qualify as 'tricks' but echo "/blah/whatever" | xargs ls -ln cat /dev/null > somefile cat /dev/ttyS0 (reading from a serial device)
  5. Well, what do you know? It worked! Perhaps something to look a bit more into.
  6. Im no expect guru, but I did try something just to see if it would work along the lines of. spawn su expect "assword: " send -- "passwordhere" After running that it just dropped me back to the command line.
  7. I actually tried that. Su won't accept input unless it is coming from a terminal. Maybe you know something I don't?
  8. I mainly go to conferences for the talks. Im not really that intersted in some of the parties and whatnot. Sure they can be fun, but it's not why I would go to a con. Making sure it is easy to get to without having to drive a car is essential. One of the great things about HOPE is that it's in the middle of NYC so if you need something it's within walking distance. Lockpicking exhibts are fun, but not something that would make or break a con. Also, it should go with out saying that internet access is essential.
  9. Yes, that is only temporary. I did however mention towards the bottom, that if the user used the bash shell you could modify their .bashrc file in their home directory. EDIT: Whoops, uploaded an older copy that left that out. Thanks for the spelling mistake, spell check missed that one I guess. And yeah the variable names are 'silly' but it's meant to be a joke. You do make a valid point though. I like your Ideas Inode, something to look into.
  10. http://hacks.forgetthefilter.com/articles/...with_$path A simple article I wrote about messing around with the $PATH variable, and how you might be able to use that to your advantage. Id like some feedback on it if you have any. Good, bad, total piece of shit, whatever.
  11. I have run into a similar problem with RHEL 4. I found an rpm for xmms that added support back in. http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.p...ubmit=Search+... If that does not work you could try compiling from source.
  12. Sorry about the minor spelling errors. Should I leave em up How do you not see why we're a little pissed off, dude.... the kid asked for software that is: 1) Destructive 2) Proprietary... thus implying that it would be pirated (because I have no real issue with proprietary software IDAPro=Win). Not only that, but it really doesn't sound like he knew ANYTHING about it (the software) or how it works. Also the software in question is dedicated to spreading Malware and other crap. How could you not be pissed? --p0d Sometimes playing with things is the best way to learn about something. Tools are tools. You can't infer from his post what he wanted MPACK for.
  13. I don't really see why some you guys are being so pissy. And no, I doubt anyone knows where to 'download' a copy. Usually this software is sold see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPack_(software) Further more, someone posting a link would be breaking the rules and the thread would proballly get remove. Mabye some one pm'd you a link or something, but I doubt it.
  14. Try looking for a third party that makes a compatible one. Then just replace it yourself.
  15. as root run vmware-config.pl. Go through that and it will ask you if you want to re-config networking. Enter yes, then it will create a briged adapter, then it will ask you to create another, tell it yes. Note the adapter name, IE vmnet0, vmnet1, etc. Then goto the settings on your virtual machine and tell it to use the adapter created for the ethernet connection.
