I'm a unix sysadmin, working as a consultant at Init AB (www.init.se).

Previous jobs include sysadmin in charge of security related systems at a large bank, and mail servers at a largish ISP, including handling abuse and spam issues.

@NageshwaranM Those commands look very strange to me, presumably due to markdown formatting... Could you rewrite them, using the code markes (`) around the commands?

You could probably build something combining find and mv, e.g. find /music -type d -exec mv {}/*90.mp3 targetdir\; - but now I feel a bit like I'm overcomplicating it, and simply using -i or -t is more efficient

@syntaxerror Very true - I meant this as an example of how mv behaves, not as a criticism of your choice of tools.

@Hackaholic If you're on an OS where du supports that... FreeBSD does, as does SuSE, but e.g. RHEL doesn't. I don't have Solaris or HP-UX available for testing, but my memory is that they don't. That's why I used -s - it's more portable.

comment Webserver establishing new outgoing connections from port 443
@QuestionOverflow I'm sorry, I don't have the best answer for this. But I'd have a look at pretty much everything that has the word timeout without udp or icmp... You could also post a new question specifically about how to configure conntrack; if you do, please include your current config and hopefully someone will be able to help you.
