  3. Re: Multiple NICs, setting default route permanently

    Does the computer move or will it be on the same network, always?

    Google says to use:

    What do you mean by "remote directory"? cifs, NFS, p9? Something else? Usually the remote server controls persons, owner, group, acls, xattr and other file properties.
  9. [ubuntu] Re: How can I get all the debs from a repository

    Don't use root. Remote root isn't a good idea.

    Support for 16.04 ends this month, so move off that ASAP! Or pay Canonical for ESM for each of those systems.

    No.
