I am using Scientific Linux on my office computer and home laptop. I was usually signed in before I leave my office so when I made a change over SSH on my office computer, DropBox would automatically sync the change. But this time I rebooted my office computer using SSH with /sbin/reboot, and after signing in again it would no longer update DropBox.
Well September is here, and the final days of summer are hard upon us. Autumn is around the corner here in the Northern Hemisphere, and that means it's time to begin thinking ahead to the winter days to come.
I have a network that connects my office and home together. The home system has a cable 10Meg service, and from this router (192.168.2.1) a cable goes to the office router (192.168.1.1). Attached to each router are an HP Laserjet 4100 on 2.1(home) and a Phaser 860 on 1.1.(office)
From my office computer I can access both printers using TCP/IP.
I can't SSH out of my home network. Example, I can SSH from my phone on 3G to the office, but I can't from the wireless at my home. I used to be able to. I haven't changed any settings on my home router. Happens on multiple machines. I can't even ping the office ip. Can the firewall at the office block in such a way? Maybe the ISP is blocking me?
With Linux and free software making a name for itself in the world of big business, many people are testing the feasibility of switching small and home office software to their open source equivalents.
