Easy SSH Login

March 30th, 2017 No comments

Here is a simple way to setup key (password-less) login on Unix-like systems.

Once you’ve configured SSH locally, add your public key to remote hosts using the following command:

**NB** in the next line, be very careful to use cat >> (append) and not cat > (overwrite), or you will trash your remote authorized_keys2 file, leaving your remote inaccessible to everyone but you. Not cool.

cat ~/.ssh/ | ssh remote_machine 'cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys2'

Replace .ssh/ with your public key.

Also make sure remote folder ~/.ssh has mode 0700 and ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2 has 0600.

Windows Terminal Server: “Too many connections”

January 16th, 2013 No comments

There is one backdoor which can be used. Since Windows 2003 there is a little known feature which helps in a “too many connections” situation. The Remote Desktop client offers an option which allows you to connect to the console. This gives you a 3rd connection. If someone is logged into the console you have to have the sufficient permissions then the session will be logged out and you can log in. If nobody is logged into the console it will let you log in.

Start -> Run -> CMD
cd Program FilesTerminal Services Client
mstsc -v:x.x.x.x /console

Headless Parallels

November 12th, 2012 No comments

Generally I like to run servers headless, as in with no display or console. In Parallels this is a little tricky, but doable from Terminal. However, Parallels Desktop must not be running. If you do launch Parallels while a Terminal-spawned VM is running, a console will automatically be created.

To see a list of available VM:

prlctl list -a

To launch a VM:

prlctl start vm_name
