incoming connections are not being reported to my /var/log/secure. I can't see if people are trying to connect. I can't troubleshoot because I can't do anything.
where would this be logging to?

Hi some time back I asked this question and made a lot of changes to secure my system. Now I need to make a dummy account and give ssh access of this account to a friend. But I am unable to receive any incoming ssh connections. I can ssh to any server via my computer but can not ssh to even localhost.
Suppose I have a linux server where a given networking service is running. This service is listening on a certain port i.e. 80 for incoming connections and is serving HTTP content - it has a built-in HTTP server. The application does not support secure connections.
We had a long discussion if Key-based authentication with SSH (particularly OpenSSH) is more secure than with passwords. My co-workers always connect to servers with passwords; while I prefer to log in to a system without entering the password every time.
They have fear that it is not secure to connect without a password. What should I tell them?
I wrote a script that changes the desktop background of my gnome 3 desktop every hour using cron and it works great but I had to utilize sudo to set the session correctly and this puts a log entry in the /var/log/secure log. I use logwatch which shows me these entries daily.
In the time of free wifi and free internet connections in every hotel, bar or cafe you should be sure your connections are secure. In some cases you can’t trust the connection but you need to go online and read some mails or share some documents.
I know we can pair any bluetooth device without promoting on user screen but it is not secure. I guess as passkey will remain same for such connections for all the devices so anyone can sniff or do eavesdropping. How can we reduce the risk or make it more secure?
I heard somebody is saying user public/private key to generate the link key but is that possible for such insecure connections??
Nautilus 3.6.3Even though Nautilus is _supposed_ to be able to connect to WebDAV servers, as here:WebDAV and Secure WebDAVBased on the HTTP protocol used on the web, WebDAV is sometimes used to share files on a local network and to store files on the internet. If the server you're connecting to supports secure connections, you should choose this option.
Hi,After SSL installation, I tested the page. The window told me that "This page contains secure and non-secure items"May I know what are non-secure items? Is it because of the pcitures being displayed? How shall I make the entire page secured?Thanks.
