Thread: Funny Lines in Access_log

  1. Re: Funny Lines in Access_log

    I actually did what some "hacker" tried to do: used my web browser and asked
    for port 6667. I didn't use nmap on this port, just on the IP of the
    machine. I am also unfamiliar with the sS switches you referred to. I'll
    man nmap and learn more.

    I think you'll be happy with CentOS, based on what you said of your
    usage scenario. That's not to denigrate Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which
    comes packaged with a service contract that obviously meets many
    customers' needs, but CentOS struck me as a more natural RH 7.3
    successor for your needs.

    You'll have a lot of improvements to get used to, starting with the yum
    updater. But that's good news, in case it wasn't obvious.

    Rick;

    Yes, I like CentOS a lot. I can run newer geneweb software as well. I
    haven't upgraded the RH 7.3 box yet but anticipate doing so soon. Meanwhile
    I have it on a P4 workstation pretending to be a server.

    Doug
