    Adding program rules to ufw application.d open ports to ALL apps?

    Firewalls generally don't go to the application level. The OSI model starts at the bottom and goes up. If a port is open. It's always open for everything. About all you can control is IP addresses (white-listing) and ports. Basically the port IS the application. In other words, the port is...

    Why some people hate Ubuntu?

    It seems to be a Ford/Chevy thing. Some people just feel one is a lot better or worse than the other. It isn't just Ubuntu. Some people hate Debian, or Redhat or Fedora. But they are all good distros. As far as Ubuntu being pre-loaded. I've seen that on some laptops and workstations, but I...

    Why human computer interaction in Linux is the worse for the very beginning users compare to Windows and MacOS

    Windows has it's own share of problems and dependencies. Windows update hasn't been doing so great the last couple of months. It broke a few million windows computers. (Do a google search for windows 10 updates breaking). The fix for this broke even more than the original failure. Installing...

    Linux no boot after install!

    On EFI systems, there will be an "invisible" file system. It doesn't get mounted to the linux filesystem.

    Linux no boot after install!

    Some of this depends of your BIOS/UEFI Some computers have a "one size fits all". Everything is either Legacy BIOS or else everything is UEFI. But more often on newer systems, I see options "per boot device". For example, you can boot from the network on Legacy BIOS if you want to, but you...

    Buffering between networks of disparate speeds

    There are multiple levels of caching. First the NIC itself usually has a very small buffer. After that the OS/kernel will start caching it to RAM. If you think about it, this usually happens on writes to hard drives anyway. The bottle neck is rarely a network port. Usually it is the write to...

    Just curious... could it be something like the dev files for openssl are missing?

    How to cook minimal kernel

    I have to agree with arochester and atanere here, there are already at least a dozen "minimal install" linuxes out there. But on the other hand, I do see value in "doing it yourself". I've gone the whole LFS route and compiled my own kernel a few times. It is a job. It usually takes me about...

    what is the different between gnome an gnome on xorg

    Yup, xorg vs wayland. Xorg is over 25 years old. Made up of lots of small pieces that were added over the years. Wayland tries to put it all back together in a simpler (more efficient) way.

    dhcpcd.service does not exist (Virtualbox)

    It sure looks like it isn't installed. I'm not that familiar with pacman, but I think something like.. pacman -Qe | grep dhcp ..would show if it is installed.

    Out of the frying pan into the Fire with LAN cards.

    Any idea what kind of router you have? (The box) the cable goes to. Maybe Cisco, Netgear, Linksys, D-Link, etc... ? Is there a model number? I think someone above mentioned it might be on a tag on the bottom of your router. Be careful posting pictures, sometimes the tag has passwords and...

    Out of the frying pan into the Fire with LAN cards.

    I believe NAP is Network Access Protection. I think it might be a Microsoft thing. NAT is network address translation. Most ISP's give you a 10.x.x.x or a 192.168.x.x IP address in your house (or business) These are reserved networks that can't be routed out to the internet. So your ISP...

    Out of the frying pan into the Fire with LAN cards.

    ..ah ha... now we are getting somewhere. :) Since you don't have a default gateway on your LAN connection, we know this isn't going out to the internet directly. It looks like you are using NAT through your VPN. Your broadband miniPort is using a hard-coded IP address with CHAP...

    Out of the frying pan into the Fire with LAN cards.

    Did you post the output of... sudo cat /etc/network/interfaces yet? I suspect @atanere is right, and you are already set up for DHCP, but it can't hurt to check. Assuming this is the case, do you know how to go to your network interface properties control panel in windows? Do you know how...
