Psst. Open beta.

Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:

  • » The open beta is running a copy of the database that will not carry over to the final version. Don't post anything you don't mind losing.
  • » If you wish to use your user account, you will probably need to reset your password.
Your feedback is appreciated via the form on the beta page. Thanks! -Jon & CLFU Team

Say I have configured a fully optimized squid server A listen on [xxxx:xxxx::xxxx]:3128, within ISP_foo.

But when I was with ISP_bar , I can not access the proxy with full speed due to ISP's limit upon the normal clients among different ISP.

If you are curious where the ridiculous ISPs are, I'll tell you the truth --that's CHINA.

However, servers' network connection is not enslaved to that limitation, especially with IPv6.

So, I can do this socat linefu on a server B of ISP_bar.

me >> B(ISP_bar)>> A(ISP_foo)

On a machine behind a firewall, it's possible to pass the proxy server address in as a prefix to wget to avoid having to set it as an environment variable first.

This is the command to configure "cobbler reposync" to use a specific proxy setting to mirror locally the content of a specific remote repository.

set-proxy () { P=webproxy:1234; DU="fred"; read -p "username[$DU]:" USER; printf "%b"; UN=${USER:-$DU}; read -s -p "password:" PASS; printf "%b" "\n"; export http_proxy="http://${UN}:${PASS}@$P/"; export ftp_proxy="http://${UN}:${PASS}@$P/"; }

Prompts the user for username and password, that are then exported to http_proxy for use by wget, yum etc

Default user, webproxy and port are used.

Using this script prevent the cleartext user and pass being in your bash_history and on-screen

autossh -f -i /path/to/key -ND local-IP:PORT [email protected]

This creates a persistent ssh -i /path/to/key -ND local-IP:PORT [email protected] connection. You may have to install autossh. -f puts in daemon mode. if you are having trouble, try it without -f.
