Setting Up vsftpd + TLS On Debian Squeeze

FTP is a very insecure protocol because all passwords and all data are transferred in clear text. By using TLS, the whole communication can be encrypted, thus making FTP much more secure. This article explains how to set up vsftpd with TLS on a Debian Squeeze server.

Raspberry Pi has announced a new public beta test based on the "wheezy" version of Debian's upcoming OS release.

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized, single-board computer running an ARM11 CPU. The $35 Raspberry Pi is aimed at providing schoolchildren with a cheap computer to play around on and learn with, but giving those to kids seems like an awful waste to me. Smile

Distributed Replicated Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04

falko's picture

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 12.04) to a distributed replicated storage with GlusterFS. Nodes 1 and 2 (replication1) as well as 3 and 4 (replication2) will mirror each other, and replication1 and replication2 will be combined to one larger storage server (distribution). Basically, this is RAID10 over network. If you lose one server from replication1 and one from replication2, the distributed volume continues to work. The client system (Ubuntu 12.04 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem.

Streaming Your Desktop With Audio And Webcam Overlay In A Browser Using ffmpeg, crtmpserver And Flowplayer

This tutorial is based on Ubuntu Lucid, but will work on later releases as well with small changes. I will show how I stream my desktop with audio from pulse and webcam from video4linux2. I will also show how to configure crtmpserver and flowplayer so you can watch the live stream from a web browser. In this scenario I use separate host for the tools. Flowplayer is installed on a server running Apache, crtmp server is on a separate server and ffmpeg is installed on the streaming desktop.

High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04

This tutorial shows how to set up a high-availability storage with two storage servers (Ubuntu 12.04) that use GlusterFS. Each storage server will be a mirror of the other storage server, and files will be replicated automatically across both storage servers. The client system (Ubuntu 12.04 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system.
