The PartImage Handbook

Post date: May 21, 2005, 15:05 Category: Software Views: 3078 Comments
Tutorial quote: - Partition Image is a Linux/UNIX partition imaging utility: it saves partitions formatted using the Ext2FS (the linux standard), ReiserFS (a new journaled and powerful file system), JFS IBM journaled file systems from AIX, NTFS (Windows NT File System), FAT16/32 (DOS & Windows file systems), or HPFS (OS/2 file system) file system formats to an image file. Only used blocks are copied. The image file can be compressed in the GZIP/BZIP2 formats to save disk space, and split into multiple files to be copied on removable media (ZIP for example), or burned on a CD-R ...

- This allows the user to save a full Linux/Windows system, with a single operation. When problems occur (viruses, crash, error, ...), you just have to restore, and after several minutes, all your system is restored (boot, files, ...), and fully working.

- This is very useful when installing the same software on many machines: just install one of them, create an image, and then restore the image on all other machines. After the first one, each subsequent installation can be made automaticaly, and only requires a few minutes.

File Transfer Protocol

Post date: April 12, 2005, 18:04 Category: Network Views: 2851 Comments
Tutorial quote: Wake up, you goodness-to-GUI slacksters! It's time to get up and get out of that hammock and put your feet on the ground and your hands on the CLI. This week we're going to talk about data in motion. Taking a file from one place on the network. Putting it someplace else. Most often today some form of FTP, the File Transfer Protocol, is used to do those things. It's been part of the Internet since there was an Internet.

Emulating an OS with qemu

Post date: May 22, 2005, 08:05 Category: Emulation Views: 5007 Comments
Tutorial quote: When you want to emulate a PC with a complete operating system on your computer, the most heard answer would be VMWare. Sure, for Linux, there is wine, but that package is targeted to handle only window$ and not all programs are supported. No, I'm talking about simulating a complete OS on a virtual PC with virtual hardware.

Although VMware does an almost perfect job at it, it isn't free software. Time to see what the Open Source community has to offer. That's when I stumbled upon qemu. Let's have a look at the possibilities.

Using network transfer protocols

Post date: April 15, 2005, 18:04 Category: Network Views: 2714 Comments
Tutorial quote: Let's face it, most of us are in a rut when it comes to moving our files around. We learned how to use a simple FTP client years ago, and maybe even updated to a GUI FTP client when we were feeling particularly adventurous. There are actually a wealth of tools available for transferring files, and some of them perform automation functions that can easily assist your business in building site mirrors, synchronizing directory contents, and more.

Keep in mind that for many of the tools covered here, there's only really room to skim through their features. Some, such as wget and rsync, are full of useful capabilities for those brave enough to read their man pages and experiment.

How To Migrate Mailboxes Between IMAP Servers With IMAP TOOLS

Post date: October 27, 2011, 08:10 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 20836 Comments
Tutorial quote: This guide explains how you can migrate mailboxes between IMAP servers with IMAP TOOLS. IMAP TOOLS is a collection of Perl scripts that allow you to do various tasks with IMAP servers and also POP3 servers. In this article I will focus on the scripts imapcopy.pl (copies messages and mailboxes from one IMAP server to another) and pop3toimap.pl (copies POP3 messages to an IMAP server). Both scripts support SSL. If you specify port 993 (995 for POP3) then an SSL connection is initiated. If the port number is 143 (110 for POP3) then it will try a non-SSL connection. With any other value the port will be tested to see if it supports SSL. If so, SSL will be used to make the connection; otherwise a non-SSL connection will be made.
