Best of Technical Support
When I try to mount my ATAPI CD-ROM (I have two Pioneers as masters on 2-IDE and a Delta as slave on 2-IDE; both drives are recognized by the kernel as hdc and hdd), I get an error message which states, “mount fs: type 9660 not supported by kernel”. I have tried to modify the /etc/fstab with:
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto 0,0 /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom01 iso9660 noauto 0,0
I still get the same error. Can you help me? —Kim Nielsen, Red Hat 5.1
This is happening because your kernel wasn't compiled to support the iso9660 file system, and you don't seem to be able to load the module. Try this first:
moremagic:~# cat /proc/filesystems ext2 minix nodev proc vfat nodev autofs nodev nfs iso9660
If you don't see iso9660, you should have an isofs module (unless you recompiled your own kernel). If typing insmod isofs and then mounting your CD-ROM works, your problem may be that kerneld isn't running. Try:
moremagic:~# ps auxww | grep kernel[dD] root 38 0.0 0.3 756 364 ? S 01:15 0:00 /sbin/kerneld
If kerneld is not there, you will need to start it yourself. —Marc Merlin, email@example.com

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
