Ubuntu SSH

You may often have to access remote servers to administer, manage, and troubleshoot and there are several ways to do this. You may use telnet to login to remote servers; FTP allows transferring files between different servers. However, these programs are not secure enough for connecting to critical servers. SSH, a secure shell is a cryptographic network protocol using which you can securely access network services over an unsecured network. SSH allows you to access servers through Terminal and various command line functions. It is helpful if you want to access and administer a server remotely using a secure way.

In this article, I am going to describe how you can remotely manage a Linux server with SSH.

For this article, I am using the following machines:

Home Server Project part 1

Nowadays in this new era apartments are shrinking and we do not have enough space for a TV stand with DVD storage or maybe a shelf for DVDs, just as our parents did, so now we Millenials are having a different approach to storage since we adapt to changes and some of us prefer to own home server.

Server is not a big thing like it used to be now there are small servers with a raspberry pi or an old computer to turn them in a NAS. Having your own home server will allow you to share that media not only in LAN also stream content when you are at work or maybe in a different country, totally up to you.

Home Servers offer a bunch of different options and it is really convenient all depends on you and the needs you want to fulfill, of course, it needs a learning curve but the results will exceed expectations and here I will explain how to properly set up a home server for streaming content.

Budget Plex Server Hardware

This post is about my own experience looking for an alternative for a streaming service and also to save a few bucks in my pocket. After using Hulu and Netflix for a few months, I got tired of same content or incomplete series so I found a couple of alternatives for my home entertainment center (yes first world problems) Kodi and Plex. This post is about Plex since is the one I chose for my personal use.

What is Plex? Well is another streaming service, where you choose what media to stream, movies, series, music and live TV.

The server can be a high end computer to a Raspberry Pi. I will go over a few settings and changes I made and maybe it will answer the questions that somebody may have.

List of new features after update

I just received an update on my Unlocked S10+ and there were a few small changes that I didn’t see anyone really talking about. So, I wanted to list them here:

    • Volume dot appears on YouTube now when you change volume. You can select it and drag it: https://i.imgur.com/I087snX.jpg
    • If you have the “Gesture Hints” turned on for your navigation bar then there are two small changes.
        • 1) If you swipe right ONCE on the Home “gesture line” then you switch between your last used app only. It previously just cycled through your entire list of apps one at a time. Edit: http://imgur.com/a/w67ZyDtI have been informed that this is NOT new functionality.
        • 2) Swiping up on Home and holding, to activate Google Assistant, now seems to show a “activation” animation that fills out the gesture hint line
    • Single tapping in a text field now brings up the context menu, (Clipboard, Copy, Paste, etc). It was previously a hold to bring it up. It worked in Google Messages and Keep.
    • Samsung Blockchain Keystore now available for unlocked, and possibly carrier, models. Go to Settings -> Biometrics and Security and scroll down to select it and activate it.
    • Calls and Messaging Continuity. Go to Settings -> Connections -> Call & Message Continuity. This seems to allow calls/messages to come through on any device your Samsung account is signed into. Samsung Messages must also be your default app: http://imgur.com/a/NoPzMSX. Might only be some models. AT&T user says they don’t have while T-Mobile user does.
    • When you use wireless powershare, the heart rate monitor LED will flash blue when waiting for a device to charge, will turn red once something is charging, green when it’s fully charged. There is also a new charging animation: http://imgur.com/a/PPC4Ls4

That’s all I’ve found so far! If you guys see anything else then please comment to let me know and I’ll try to update this post.

Bug fixes: – Caller ID no longer toggling off in the dialer after a reboot.
