Writing Linux firewall rules w/ IPTables

The Linux kernel, since version 2.0, has included the capabilities to act as a firewall. In those days, the kernel module was called ipfwadm and was very simple. With the 2.2 kernel, the firewall module became called ipchains and had greater capabilities than its predecessor. Today, we have IPTables, the firewall module in the kernel since the 2.4 days.

Secure Copy with SCP

Some of you may be familiar with ftp (File Transfer Protocol). It is not a good idea to use ftp over the Internet because it is a relatively insecure method of transfering files between computers. As most of you know, this protocol sends the user's password and data in the clear over the network, which leaves the user information and data susceptible to password sniffing and other network traffic interception. To transfer files between machines, you need to use scp. scp works very similarly to cp, except that the files you are copying reside on different machines.
