ssh tunnel to http which redirects to https failure

Gidday LJ and LJ fans,

I'm a long time dabbler in the 'nix black arts but only recently got serious about it.

I run tomcat at home for, amongst other things, my wiki. I set it up with fairly serious security to require users to login, and it also forces redirection to https for all read/write.

I've just setup a ssh tunnel so I can access it (thank to Linux Journal's help). more>>

How to support 50K IPv6 addresses on a single machine?

Hi,

Does anyone know if there is any way to configure 50K "virtual" IPv6 addresses on loopback device in Linux? The aim is not to add all 50K IPv6 addresses one by one on the loopback/ETH device which will probably mess up the ip table on the system. In IPv4, I am able to achieve that by specifying the IP address subnet on loopback device (e.g: "ip addr add 10.1.0.0/16 dev lo"). more>>

DHCP client

It appears I can use dhcpctl, however the man pages say that dhcpctl is for the server deamon while the ISC documentation suggests it can control the client as well.
