  1. Re: giving someone network access that is not a ubuntu question

    Comcast doesn't care about your LAN security at all. They think everything outside their plant is dangerous. They have to think that way. I worked at an ISP with over 50M customer locations. We...

    Re: Cant login to ubuntu anymore

    There are a number of different causes for the "login-loop" as this is called.

    The YAML spec doesn't mandate either, just be consistent. I've never used tabs in a yaml file. There is a requirement that at least 2 spaces are needed for an indentation level, but as long as...

  8. Re: Ban "other" from $HOME and subdirs - Good or Bad Idea?

    Not sure, but perhaps you missed the subtle aspect to Catkiller's suggestion. Read on a directory isn't always needed. Often, eXecute would be fine.
    751 would likely work. Most programs don't scan...

  11. Re: Ban "other" from $HOME and subdirs - Good or Bad Idea?

    I can't see any reason why any setting other than 700 would be cause for issues. At other jobs, we ran that way by defaults. For end-users, we'd often run with 500, so they couldn't accidentally...
