SUSE 10 users install notes

22 Jan 2014
  • zypper install openmotif (you need this)
  • Follow the Redhat user install notes
  • Note: I think it is safe to ignore the error grep: /etc/syslog.conf: No such file or directory

TCP wrapper settings

If you use TCP wrapper security add the following configuration

/etc/hosts.allow

  • ALL: backup.cs.uwaterloo.ca

Firewall issues

  • IF you use a firewall add backup.cs and backup.math to your rule set

MAC Ports

  • OSX, TCP ports 7937-7939 and 10001-10100 should be sufficient.

Redhat Firewall

If you use a firewall you need to read this
Manual Method
  • Update firewall by editing /etc/sysconfig/iptables place these lines before COMMIT
     
          -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED,RELATED -p tcp -s 129.97.82.10/32 -j ACCEPT 
          -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED,RELATED -p tcp -s 129.97.152.240/32 -j ACCEPT 
     
  • Using GUI Tool For the firewall, use the GUI tool * "system-configure-securitylevel" [desktop--system--security level](run it from the commandline if you must).
      • It writes the file /etc/sysconfig/system-config-securitylevel, which you can modify under the covers if necessary.
      • The GUI syntax is a comma-delimited list of port:protocol pairs, eg 22:tcp for SSH
      • The syntax in the file is one rule per line, of the form "--port=nnn:prot", eg "--port=22:tcp" opens SSH.
  • Note that for the GUI you will have to know the system's root password, or run the command from the commandline via sudo.

Excluding files from backup

See also Legato Directive File Examples

  • Create a file called .nsr in the root (ie /.nsr ) of your file system
  • See man 5 nsr
Example from Fedora Core 3 Machine
# For details on syntax see: man 5 nsr
