Using setuid Properlyview story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I've been scared too much by the warning about setuid. However I cannot find a way around using it. I want to be able to run: arp -s 198.51.100.1 00:53:00:12:34:56 as the user steven but arp -s requires root. Would this be the correct way to do it? sudo nano example.sh sudo chmod u+s example.sh sudo chmod og-w example.sh sudo chmod o+x example.sh ./example.sh (HowTos)

http://serverfault.com – I'm doing a course on an introduction to networks and I'm struggling to visualise certain aspects of the domain name system database. (if that is worded correctly?) For example, if you perform nslookup on koreatimes.co.kr you get a non-authoritative IP address: 121.78.129.100. This IP address is different from all 3 name servers' IP addresses found using nslookup -type=NS. (HowTos)
