Today I present a really interesting article by Scott Miller first published on Infosecinstitute.com . With the significant prevalence of Linux web servers globally, security is often touted as a strength of the platform for such a purpose. However, a Linux based web server is only as secure as its configuration and very often many are quite vulnerable to compromise. While specific configurations vary wildly due to environments or specific use, there are various general steps that can be taken to insure basic security considerations are in place. Many risks are possible from a compromise including using the web server into a source of malware, creating a spam-sending relay, a web or TCP proxy, or other malicious activity. The operating system and packages can be fully patched with security updates and the server can still be compromised based purely on a poor security configuration.
You've heard the word "server" thrown around a lot, but usually in the context of web sites or big companies that have a lot of data to store. In reality, a server can be just as useful in your home. In this guide, we'll walk through how to create your own server at home that you can put in the closet and leave on 24/7, ready to do any streaming, downloading, or backup you might need at a moment's notice. Why Do I Want a Server in My House? A server, for those that don't know, is just a computer that stores data and "serves" it to other computers on a network, and it can be immensely useful in your house.
In this day and age, it's simple and popular to have someone else change your oil, grow your vegetables, remodel your house and host your services. However, I'd argue that it's far more rewarding, educational and not very difficult to manage these things yourself. This column is the second in a series about how to manage your own services on your own server. In the first column, I discussed how to make sure your home network is ready to host your own services. In this column, I start to get into the meat of the topic and discuss the first service you can (and should) set up at home: DNS.
Actually, I’ve managed to install dns server and do the configuration via webmin, but as a true fan of ubuntu certainly not happy when not managed to do via the console.One thing you should consider : To facilitate the install dns server in ubuntu, then we must prepare : Ip Address to DNS Server, here I use the ip address 10.14.10.100 Nameserver, here I use the nameserver ns.udiniqgeek.com with ip address 10.14.10.100 Domain Name, here I use the domain name udiniqgeek.com with ip address 10.14.10.100
Domain Name System (DNS) converts the name of a Web site (www.linuxhomenetworking.com) to an IP address (188.8.131.52). This step is important, because the IP address of a Web site's server, not the Web site's name, is used in routing traffic over the Internet. This chapter will explain how to configure your own DNS server to help guide Web surfers to your site.
UBUNTU SERVER e DNS Updater kurulurmu Evet arkadaslar ilk önce kisa olarak anlatayim daha sonra isterseniz alttaki link e bakin !! 1.ilk önce DNS adresiniz yoksa ( DynDNS: DNS Hosting, Email Delivery and Other Services ) tan adress olusturun ! 2. sudo apt-get install ssh libio-socket-ssl-perl (ssl e yazin ) 3. sudo apt-get install ddclient (ssl ) 4.bu acilan pencereden provider inizi secin ( mesela dnydns, easydns veya bis baskasi) 5.acilmis olan pencereye dns ardesinizi ekleyin 6.acilmis olan pencereye dns username ekleyin 7.acilmis olan pencereye dns password ekleyin 8.acilmis olan bu pencereye web yazin 9.bu komut u sudo vim /etc/ddclient.conf burraya config i editleyebilirsiniz !!!!
Parent page: Internet and Networking Every computer attached to the Internet has an IP address. Name Translation is the process of relating a name (like 'www.google.com') to an IP address (like '184.108.40.206') so that a website (or other service) on a computer can be accessed using an easily remembered name, rather than the IP address number of the computer. Name Translation is implemented via a distributed database known as the Domain Name System . This database is implemented on the Internet by DNS name servers which keep track of DNS records and exchange this information between each other to maintain consistency.
Using Linux Screen for Session Management
Need to monitor Linux server performance? Try these built-in commands and a few add-on tools.
Securing your Linux server is important to protect your data, intellectual property, and time, from the hands of crackers (hackers).
The first article in this series discussed the basic installation and configuration of IPCop 1.4.21 . Subsequent articles covered six important add-ons: Advanced Proxy, URL Filter, Update Accelerator, Calamaris , Block Outgoing Traffic and Zerina . In this article, we will explore IPCop’s built-in VPN functionality, and implement a site-to-site tunnel-mode VPN using two IPCop. Imagine a company with two offices at different locations, connected via the Internet. Here, organisational traffic travels over an “open” channel, risking confidentiality (unauthorised snooping of data) and integrity (unauthorised tampering of data). To overcome these risks, one of the best ways is to encrypt traffic over the Internet, which is what a VPN does.
