@the_velour_fog That's a very good analogy!

If you search for the string &> in the linked question, you will find the answer.

comment How to show and operate a remote Linux desktop when SSH or any other remote service is unavailable?
You say that they are blocking any external access. If they are, then what you are asking is for us to help you get around their firewall rules.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's not about Unix, it's about how to get around the ISP's firewall rules.

So this is not a unix question, it's an "how to get around my ISP's rules" question. Sorry.

SSH does not depend on a static IP - it just depends on a known IP. Get an account with e.g. dyndns. Or get an IPv6 tunnel with a static IP address, which doesn't involve your ISP at all.

@AustinPerez It is the exact same issue.

comment SFTP Automatic Login
Why would it be a problem that the public key is stored on another system? It's not as if it can be misused.

comment ssh to remote machine using shell script
Don't. Instead, use a passwordless SSH key with limited permissions.

comment Using Grep Command Without Specifying a Certain Directory
right @andcoz, I'd completely forgotten that. I'm too old; I started using grep on Solaris, which didn't have that, so I learned to use find instead and it's stuck with me.

comment How can I tell my program to save in ~
@vonbrand I quite agree that /tmp is a bad place to store data. But it's not a bad place to write a downloaded file to, provided you later move it to wherever you'd like to actually store it.

A far better idea than mine.

comment How can I tell my program to save in ~
@thrig Given the constraints in the question, I am sceptical that the program would be able to handle the substitution required to deal with different temp dirs for different users. Also, since the poster suggested using /home, there would seem to be little requirement for privacy.

comment How to get UK keyboard layout in Centos 5.11 console
I'm voting to move this question to Unix & Linux since it's more about how unix works than about systems administration. This doesn't mean that the question is bad, just that it's more likely to get a good answer there.

comment WGET encountering 403 when trying to access filter - nginx
I'm voting to close it because it's about getting access to something that the owner of the website has denied you. Breaking through the permissions deliberately set by the site owner is not something Unix & Linux should help with.

Does it absolutely have to be bash, or could it be perl?

Well, I was hoping for the exim configuration for outgoing email.

comment Email generated with Python stuck in mailq, times out (Debian)
Since the problem is with sending mail, the ones regarding sending mail would be interesting. Also, since your ISP informed you that you should be using port 587/465 instead of port 25, the default exim configuration is highly unlikely to work for you, since it defaults to using the standard SMTP port for outgoing mail.

comment Email generated with Python stuck in mailq, times out (Debian)
Your listener options are also irrelevant. The issue occurs when exim is sending the email out to gmail, not when exim is receiving it from your perl script. You can't expect people here to go looking for a default config that might or might not match your default. (Also, why have you set the return address to <>? That should only be used for bounce messages!)
