Block an IP with iptables

  • Block an IP address:

    iptables -A INPUT -s IP-ADDRESS -j DROP

    Replace ‘xx.xx.xx.xx’ with the IP address:

    iptables -A INPUT -s  -j DROP

    If you need to block port access from an ip xx.xx.xx.xx to port 22:

    iptables -A INPUT -s xx.xx.xx.xx -p tcp --destination-port 22 -j DROP

    The above rule will drop all packets coming from IP xx.xx.xx.xx to port 22:

Tmux Commands

screen and tmux

A comparison of the features (or more-so just a table of notes for accessing some of those features) for GNU screen and BSD-licensed tmux.

The formatting here is simple enough to understand (I would hope). ^ means ctrl+, so ^x is ctrl+x. M- means meta (generally left-alt or escape)+, so M-x is left-alt+x

It should be noted that this is no where near a full feature-set of either group. This - being a cheat-sheet - is just to point out the most very basic features to get you on the road.

Trust the developers and manpage writers more than me. This document is originally from 2009 when tmux was still new - since then both of these programs have had many updates and features added (not all of which have been dutifully noted here).
