    [SOLVED] Re: Why is port 53/tcp open?

    Yeah I'm just pointing out that the guide of mine that was linked is using a default outbound drop policy... so if you're following that you need to allow access to an external DNS server lol :-P

    [ubuntu] Re: Increasing Ubuntu entropy with /poolsize ?
