Hello there, I am posting to seek help with a KSH script,
I am making a simple calculation program where the user can enter as many numbers as they like, I am getting their input using the read command, however I am not sure how to repeat doing this and storing the input in to new variables until the user wants the program to calculate.
Using ksh to call a function which has awk script embedded.
It parses a long two element list file, filled with text numbers (I want column 2, beginning no sooner than line 45, that's the only known thing) . It's unknown where to start or end the data collection, dynamic variables will be used.
ie, scan lines 45 - 20000 first pass.
I am setuping my server and I must disable the ping requests for everyone except me and a list of hosts (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd).
I am using the tool ufw, on ubuntu server, I read that I have to comment those lines:
ok icmp codes
-A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type destination-unreachable -j ACCEPT
-A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type source-quench -j ACCEPT
-A ufw-before-input -p icmp --
