comment how to detect what DISPLAY is active/has input focus?
I don't think such solutions exist, because there is no such thing as "input focus". Quite the contrary is the case. Multiseat setups seem very common for e.g. kiosk systems. Such decisions would always be heuristical approaches with a bunch of sources for errors. For instance, in your comment you talk about "the hardware keyboard", implying there is only one and it is read from by an X-Server. Both are assumptions that needn't be true. Then there are things like Xephyr and Xnest, which stack X-Servers into one another.

comment How to burn an iso while downloading it
@lgeorget: "burning" in the sense of "heating significantly beyond friction with the intention to store data" happens only with discs, not disks, and definetly not flash drives. Yet we still don't know if the OP wants the ISO written to the flash drive or a partition on the same ...

@Fiodor: I'll have to disagree, I'm afraid. The man page for wget states quite unambiguously in the section on the -O option "If - is used as file, documents will be printed to standard output"

@NatusVincere: Could you please elaborate on the process of burning onto USB flash disks? I am not familiar with this. What does it accomplish?

comment How to burn an iso while downloading it
@lgeorget: Why would it need that? Back in the day it used to be the way to go to mkisofs ... | cdrecord .... If that information is really required it's probably in the meta information of the iso-image. I have forgotten most of it, but appart from buffer underrun problems, which also should be a thing of the past, I do not see why wget -O - http://path.to/image.iso | cdrecord ... should not work. I'm just not posting an answer because I don't recall which parameters cdrecord needs, let alone what's sensible for the problem at hand.

comment forwarding not working in iptables from 8006 to 443
Then "I want to redirect the Port 8006 to 443." is not your only goal. You need to tell us what you have, what you want, what you have tried and what happened during your attempts, especially when you gave up.

You need to give a clear description of what you intend to do. Did the numberswapping i suggested help you at all? If not you need to improve your problem description. Not the firewall rules, the problem you want to solve.
