Port forwarding, kazaa and usenet

Learnt how to configure 2 webservers on my DI-614+ router. Got the answer here. I did try with a different port number before but I had set up the port number on the DI-614+ only and not on the webserver itself. Right now, links to Manish’s PC and links to mine. Most probably, these links will not work later because I will be making several changes.
Also installed Kazaa again. It is still not working. I configured it for the DI-614+. More info is here. But still downloads are really bad.
Also tested UseNet. Tried in Outlook Express and also downloaded some readers. For most groups, http://groups.google.com/ works fine. Also, found out that news server for UT is news.utk.edu and that most binary files on usenet groups don’t work. Maybe I am missing something here. Configuration settings?

Shifted blog to CS server

After a few trials and errors I have shifted the blog files to the my CS webspace.
It is working fine except that it seems to be much slower here. Most probably it is slow because I am keeping the MySQL database on the www.elangbam.com server. Maybe I should shift over to Berkeley DB and keep the files on my CS webspace instead.
Another thing I learnt is that to change the file permissions of all files in a directory, I should use:
UNIX> chmod -R 755 docs
[This will change the permissions of files in the “docs” directory to 755].
I know this seems pretty elementary but well I did not know :(. Anyway, SSH by default keeps the file permissions to 644 [at least on the CS server]. All these days, I have been going into the directories and manually changing the file permissions!!! I did write a Perl script sometime to do this, but it did not work properly always. Anyway, the Perl script might come in handy if the owner of the directory is “nobody” [happens sometimes for auto-generated files] or if Shell access is not there [for example, in cases of shared hosting where only FTP and cgi-bin access is given]
