    Struggling with basic Linode setup - I botched it the first time, but now I have two nodes to setup. Keeping extensive notes, as usual, so I can later admire my blunders. #

    # time! Again a lot of work today, no real progress - except to find that Linode's DNS actually doesn't support being set up as master in a master-slave relationship. So, maybe write a few more notes and start from scratch with another possible solutio

    After a whole day of trials and getting advice on # IRC channel, HE still isn't able to "pull" a zone from Linode (or at least this one). Giving up (for now) on letting Hurrican Electric "pull" a slave zone for this domain. That also implies that if I

    Waiting for the latest change @ Linode DNS to propagate so Hurricane Electric DNS is allowed to pull the zone to maintain a slave zone. (Thanks to good help on # IRC channel - I'd forgotten that you need to set up the zone so it gives permission to the

    @clacke I just found out that you can also do a self-hosted Dynamic DNS from Linode: "Dynamic DNS Using The Linode API" - a nice write-up that also explains how Dynamic DNS actually "works". Sweet! # # # # #

    Because I'm only hosting freebie sites now, have cancelled automatic backups. With any other VPS provider, this would have required a support ticket, on # it's a button. (Not an invitation to attack my servers, BTW.) #

    # are awesome. If there's a problem for which you are responsible they treat you like a grownup and give you time to fix it yourself. In my case perhaps not so wise, but I'm sure there are competent people who also appreciate this.

    And, wouldn't you know it: while setting up new server, #'s admin interface goes down for scheduled maintenance. The universe is telling me to start drinking at midday.

  14. mk mk

    one hurdle for setting up time service: there's a recent vulnerability, NOT yet patched in Debian, that could make the server vulnerable to a DDoS attack. That means I could specifically enable Nikola (fixed IP address) but not Dennis (lappy). So, I could set

    @theru @mmn @kat I was trying for help in the # channel, too, and (amid much confusion about teh Lish console) the -vv parameter cropped up. When I tried that (within Lish) I noticed what SSH was looking for - keys with standard name that didn't exist.

    @majestyx @if @cmhobbs ultimately I found two good candidates that match my requirements - both with servers in Europe (necessary for speed): Memopal (1) - who only mention up to 500GB but tell me they can do more (just write!); and CeeJay's Crashplan (2) - o
