Tutorial quote: If you're running a popular website you'll most likely notice that some clients are less well-behaved than others. Greedy clients can do anything from make numerous requests, to attempting to spider your entire site. One simple way of preventing these clients from slowing down your server is with the mod_bwshare module for Apache2.

Unfortunately mod_bwshare is not yet packaged for Debian GNU/Linux however installing it from the source code is very straightforward.

NFS Server and Client Configuration in Ubuntu

Post date: May 7, 2007, 06:05 Category: Network Views: 7018 Comments
Tutorial quote: NFS was developed at a time when we weren’t able to share our drives like we are able to today - in the Windows environment. It offers the ability to share the hard disk space of a big server with many smaller clients. Again, this is a client/server environment. While this seems like a standard service to offer, it was not always like this. In the past, clients and servers were unable to share their disk space.

List of BitTorrent clients Available in Ubuntu Linux

Post date: August 12, 2008, 06:08 Category: Software Views: 3647 Comments
Tutorial quote: BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol used to distribute large amounts of data. The initial distributor of the complete file or collection acts as the first seed. Each peer that downloads the data also uploads it to other peers. Relative to standard internet hosting, this provides a significant reduction in the original distributor's hardware and bandwidth resource costs. It also provides redundancy against system problems and reduces dependence on the original distributor.

A BitTorrent client is a program that manages torrent downloads and uploads using the BitTorrent protocol.

Command your network with Kaboodle

Post date: June 28, 2005, 09:06 Category: Network Views: 3415 Comments
Tutorial quote: Quite often setting up a local network is much easier than managing it. Even technically challenged users can figure out how to connect a couple of computers and a printer. However, tasks like maintenance, troubleshooting, and remote secure connections require more than just "which-cable-goes-where" knowledge. You need something like Kaboodle, a nifty tool that can help you to manage your local network like a pro.

Kaboodle allows you to visualize your local network, control computers on it via VNC, and connect to other Kaboodle-enabled networks. Kaboodle was developed for Windows, but according to its Web site, it will happily run under Wine on Linux and FreeBSD.
