Because it is binary, the permission information can be expressed as a single 9-bit number. This number is usually expressed in octal (base 8) form because a base-8 number is 3 bits in length, which means that the base-8 representation of a permission string is three digits long, one digit for each of the owner, group, and world permissions. The read, write, and execute permissions each correspond to one

of these bits. The result is that you can determine owner, group, or world permissions by adding base-8 numbers: 1 for execute permission, 2 for write permission, and 4 for read permission.  attributes - extensions to the permissions (read only, compress) on page 198 o -rw-rw-r-- file permissions on a new file o lsattr cmd to view the file attributes o chattr - change the attribute chattr +i (immutablegoes beyond disableing writes (can’t be deleted, renamed and edited) file.txt • not even root can change stuff on files marked with a -i • root can take the attribute away from it (permissions need to be the owner, root for the attributes)  Special permissions (3)---can be set symbolically-page 194 o suid-set user id=4or +s--goes in the owner  when a user executes the file, it will be executed as the owner of the file (Lending permissions )  originall file is 766  so to add special permission you need to chmod 4766 file.txt sgid-set group id=2 or +S ---goes in the group      sticky       when file is executed use the groups ID - run as the file with 766 permissions…to add sguid chmod 2766 file.txt adds an “s” to the ls-l view of permissions bit=1-----only works on directories or chmod newdir o+t any files in the directory can only be deleted by the root, owner, owner of the directory only works on directorys mkdir newdir (makes directory) current permissions are 755 chmod 1755 newdir adds a t to the ls-l

This can be done by calling the script from a local startup script (such as /etc/rc.d/rc.local), by creating a new SysV  

startup script that calls the firewall script, or by replacing an existing firewall startup script with a call to the new one. TCP Wrappers is configured through two files: /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny. The first of these specifies computers that are allowed access to the system in a particular way, the implication being that systems not listed are not permitted access. By contrast, hosts.deny lists computers that are not allowed access; all others are granted access to the system. If a computer is listed in both files, hosts.allow takes precedence.---so if ur in bot files ur allowed. Both files use the same basic format. The files consist of lines of the following form:  to view syntax type less /etc/hosts.allow

to uninstall do a rpm -e <package name> to upgrade type rpm -Uvh <package name> uninstalls old and replaces with the new one • if trying to install a older over a newer it will tell you • it looks at the database (rpm -qi <package name>) o can use cpio to view the files within the rpm package file o might need to do a rpm --import This program takes a single argu 

ment—the name of the RPM file—and outputs the cpio archive on standard output. Thus, if you want to create a cpio archive file, you must redirect the output: $ rpm2cpio samba-3.0.10-1.fc3.src.rpm > samba-3.0.10-1.fc3.cpio $ rpm2cpio samba-3.0.10-1.fc3.src.rpm | cpio -i --make-directories In either case, the result is an extraction of the files in the archive in the current directory.

/sbin/ifconfig to run ifconfig without a sudo user priv interface eth0 su -c “/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up netmask” THIS SETTING GOES AWAY WITH A REBOOT OF THE MACHINE -sets it to one time -works with both fedora and ubuntu

JUST CREATE 2 FILES with a static entry and dhcp entry then copy them over cp ifcfg-eth0.static ifcfg-eth0

For Ubuntu you edit the -/etc/network/interfaces -file nano it bitch If you only get a loopback interface and no interface type this command Ifup eth0

like in windows you don’t need to have a DNS server for local machine connectivity - it resolves the ip to name or vice-versa for you - the /etc/hosts file is the container for the translations - there is a hosts file located on windows for windows file you can edit C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc file to block out other webpages could also do nslookup and then host (ip to name or name to ip resolution) - the host cmd does similar thing - host <ip or name to resolve> - dig cmd  tells information about the DNS server holding these records - whois cmd all info about host and provider linux packet sniffer - tcpdump cmd o sudo tcpdump > packet.capture super-servers - init.d xinit.d - centralized service - xinit.d is used for new services - cd /etc/xinitd.d - yum install telnet-server o ads more files in folder - those files help to configure the super server - /etc/xinetd.d - with its own configuration options - route cmd shows show ip route - who shows who is connected to the box
