stupid things you've done with linux
Take into account that sliver is my server, of which I did not have physical access to at the time and I was using ssh to administer remotley. I intended to set up my iptables. I thought I would start off by blocking all incoming traffic and then allow the things i wanted, rather than using hundereds or rules to block off everything i didn't want...
here's more or less how it went...
root@sliver:~# iptables -L Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination root@sliver:~# iptables -P INPUT DROP
boy did i have fun sorting that one out
I am hopeing someone has done something as stupid as that
*jogs his memory*
I know I've done some stupid things, but I can't think of any of them at the moment. Don't worry, though. It happens to everyone...and it's great to sit back and laugh at yourself (at least I enjoy it)."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
