letrole: Ravage:Try connecting to your home computer via FTP from some remote location after having set it all up on your end. Most ISPs will block (filter out) that protocol.rpm: FTP isn't NAT friendly. It could be just as much a side effect of network topology as anything else./you should be using scp, not ftpletrole: nat friendly? say what? side effect of network topology? say what?rpm: Way to sidestep the issue, but I'll bite.I made the assumption that the person setting up the FTP server and firewall wasn't a complete idiot. I dont know that you are trying to say by "NAT friendly" but as long as either you configure your port forward in your firewall retains the source IP of the incoming dst 21/TCP connection so your server can open a new outbound data connection to that IP on src 20/TCP *or* your firewall is halfway decent and can statefully associate the two ports used by FTP into a single communication your FTP server will work fine.That said, it is common practice for private companies to disallow various types of internet communications based on their needs and wants.So you're suggesting somebody too dumb to choose passive FTP from the client settings should setup and run something esoteric like SCP. It's a shame you wasted all that technocrocity to make such a useless point.
Repo Man: Isaac Asimov once said "The purpose of crying doom is to avert it." No one wants AGW to be true (though it would serve some of the denialist crowd right), but if it is happening, and we are causing it, it's the responsibility of those who dedicate their lives to to the thankless task of studying the climate to get the word out. If we choose to do nothing to slow or stop it, at least they did their best to warn us.
RottenEggs: So...global warming or ice age ?/DRTFA
Gentoolive: I like the jargon change from global warming to climate change. Guess we gotta make sure we keep a crisis going.
Jarhead_h: You know what else the "long" winter can be blamed on? It's farking February.
Coming on a Bicycle: Today, in my part of the world, it was farking spring. Clear skies, warm breeze - we went to the park all day. Of course, last year around this time, we had thirty centimeters of snow.
RoyHobbs22: The Winter is the same duration every year.
