Time Event
pure-ftpd issues
Hello Friends

I am currently in the middle of setting up an FTP server and am having good results using pure-ftpd. I've been using the official documentation and this guide:


Everything works just fine, except that it is not clear how I can pass config flags to a running instance of the pure-ftpd daemon using the following method:


Basically, I can get the daemon the daemon to run, but I can't pass it any flags. See below:

foo@bar ~ $ sudo /etc/init.d/pure-ftpd restart
Restarting ftp server: Running: /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd -l puredb:/etc/pure-ftpd/pureftpd.pdb -B

By the way, I am running Debian stable. Thanks.
Anonymous users from hell
      Last month my company did 3.4 terabytes of transfer for a website that is mostly just text and jpgs and has 15-17K unique visitors a month.    Currently the top 10 users for our sites are now being explicitly blocked by iptables but I was wondering if there was an automatic or scripted way to handle this.... If someone surpasses 3GB of transfer in under 5 days, they get blocked indefinitely... kind of like what denyhosts does for TCP services like ssh?

i think that most of you will know about this, but, here you go anyway.

Current Mood: accomplished
Ubuntu: a font of annoyance
I have a Linux box running Xubuntu 8.04, and I've been playing around with getting X working on it. But I'm having a font problem.

There is a font that I want to use for my xterm sessions: vga11x19. It comes with dosemu, and I've gone ahead and installed that package. The fonts live in /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc/dosemu/. Including vga11x19.pcf.gz, which is the one I want to use.

My problem is, I can't seem to make the font system notice it.

~> xterm +cm -ms white -bg black -fg gray -fn vga11x19
xterm: unable to open font "vga11x19", trying "fixed"....

The vga11x19 font shows up in /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc/dosemu/fonts.alias as

vga11x19 -dosemu-vga-medium-r-normal--19-190-75-75-c-100-ibm-cp437

But I can't figure out how to make it so that I can call an xterm with it from the Cygwin xterm session from which I'm ssh'ing in. I've tried mkfontdir and update-fonts-alias but nothing seems to do the trick.

What should I do?
