Severn's notepad on random good-to-know Linux things

  • The *nix equivalent of Windows' nbtstat is nmblookup, ie nmblookup -A ipaddress... nmblookup is part of Samba (or perhaps smb-client packages, depending on your distribution)
  • To have rhosts/shosts ssh work in openssh, the sshd_config must have:
    • IgnoreRhosts no to use ~/.shosts
    • HostBasedAuthentication yes to allow ssh2 shosts
    • The client must be running as root (or SUID root) and the ssh_config must have HostbasedAuthentication yes. Also ssh from server to client once saying yes to accept the key before shosts will work.
