Re: firewall replaces iptables ?

The division is not client|server. More like: " what you can do easily with firewalld " | " everything else ". Routers tend to be in the latter category. It is hard to coerce the hog in to that sty. There are additional players, like libvirt, fail2ban, and docker that like to inject their rules -- d...

Re: Apache "icons" directory should readable by all users?

There must be some general principles about content for Apache service and some Fora of active Apache users, for CentOS is far from only platform where Apache is used. What platform-specific details Apache in CentOS has? That is a good question to ask here, but I bet that permissions on icon-files h...

Re: NFS mount at boot with defaults ?

I do recommend autofs too. Although, the systemd does have automount-feature too. Option in fstab enables it: <synology_ip>:/exported-nfs-share /mnt nfs defaults,noauto,nofail,x-systemd.automount 0 0 Note, I would not mount directly on /mnt . I would mount to /mnt/nas1 . That way I don't need differ...

Re: How to update Apache?

Fedora Linux was launched in 2003, when Red Hat Linux was discontinued. Red Hat is older than Fedora :/ The text that you quoted says the "Red Hat Linux" vanished 17 years ago. In other words, it does not exist today. The "Red Hat" that you see now must therefore be something different. Fedora is a...

Re: How to create a VPN with custom DNS

BShT and aks said that openvpn can tell the client to use a specific DNS server, when the VPN tunnel is active. That DNS server would be separate from the VPN, but one that can resolve all names (public and private) "correctly". dnsmasq is relatively simple, can act as caching DNS server, and resol...

Re: How to update Apache?

The ideology of Enterprise Linux is that I can purchase a server, install OS and services, and it will run its entire lifetime (5-8 years). That regular yum update (or its equivalent) will not break the setup, but will patch known security holes. It would be bad business, if a feature rebase for one...

Re: "ssh_config" and "sshd_config".

That said, the very beginning of man ssh_config and man sshd_config does tell what those files were used for.
