comment Unable to access external content with this IPTABLES ruleset
@Creek, the other INPUT rules were additional subnets that would have access. I tried to simplify my question by removing them. The other IPs would be 4.3.3.0/24 and 4.3.4.0/24. That was all that was left out of the ruleset example.

OUTPUT packets are constantly increasing. This may be due to a few ajax checks running in the background.

I didn't add the RELATED,ESTABLISHED rule till a moment ago. LDAP authentication appears to be working properly now. Getting external data still failing however. Checking packets next.

Joel if you are still following could you help with the LDAP issue? Confirmed traffic is happening over 636 which I made exception for in my rules.

I added watch -n1 to the netstat command, tried to log in to the app.. and am not seeing any entry for the LDAP server IP (or anything related to LDAP).

Is there a way to log data using the netstat -tlpn command? I ask because the LDAP query takes a microsecond, and if I am off by a little I won't see an LDAP entry in the list of results.

@terdon if you can update your answer to fit my question I'll re-accept your answer. Right now the answer doesn't fit on account of my omission of an important detail. (Sorry).

ls is not what's in my script. Just used it as an example. I just found a better way of handling the problem: find /my/directory/ -type f \( -name "*.txt" \) -print

I left an important detail from my question. It's been updated. My find command actually looks like this: find /my/directory/*txt -mtime +31 -exec ls -l {} \;

The question is about assigning ownership to newly created files. Group is already correctly assigned.

comment Why is NetworkManager attempting to control an interface script that doesn't exist?
Quick followup. Once I remove NM, will the ONBOOT option still be recognized when the system boots?

comment Search mp3 collection for songs with a certain song length
This works nicely. I modified your script to include the length of each song as it loops through the directories.
