- Create symbolic links, on 32 bit linux:
sudo ln -s /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libssl.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib/libssl.so.6
sudo ln -s /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.6
on 64 bit linux:
sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libssl.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib/libssl.so.6
sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.6
5. Extract the client, make
install script executable and run it as root
Now you can use one of these commands:
In a bash script you could use:
sudo netExtender -u user -p password -d domain server
But it should be evident that this is not a very secure method as it needs to be run as root (or pppd run as root – see prompt during installation), and the password as well as the user are stored in plain text in the shell history and who knows where else.
Maybe using the GUI or the interactive CLI tool is better?
I decided to generally upgrade some of the hardware in my home-server, which consisted mostly of salvaged parts. This required me to move the root partition to another harddrive. Sounds like a daunting task, but it actually isn’t such a hassle.
Here is how I moved my Linux root from one drive to another in Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS, and was able to (finally) throw out my old IDE drive.
Needed this to access my home server without getting a warning every. damn. time. in Chromium
Peter van der Does:
Google Chrome in Linux doesn’t have a SSL certificate manager, it relies on the NSS Shared DB. In order to add SSL certificates to the database you will have to use the command line. I will explain how you can add the CAcert certificates and a very easy way to add self-signed certificates.
When doing administrative stuff on my headless Linux server I sometimes need to keep a command running, even if I lose my shell connection. The screen command works very well for this, but it also has a lot of other helpful features – ones that I keep forgetting how to use since I don’t play around on the console enough anymore. So I created this concise list of often used and forgotten commands :).
This blog is mostly used for myself to document insights I have had, or possibly to help other people by sharing my insights. God knows how many blog-posts have helped me out in times of need
Also, I wanted to play around with WordPress
