have you tried the escape sequence to terminate the connection? the default is "~.", usually this forcibly closes the connection.

comment useradd does not work but has exit code 0
you're not running the command as root. at least the root prompt normally is # instead of $. Also, when you do passwd you get permission denied.

comment How to set up an SSD as a cache for the big Hard Drive?
you have to patch due to your kernel version. centos is on 2.6 while the main version now is 3.x. you can check the change log of centos kernel and verify if they added the solutions provided or if you have to patch your kernel.

comment Create Zip for each subfolder but containing only matched files
Updated the question. This should work but if a directory does not have any match for the filesnames it will throw a error / info stating "nothing to do", so no zip file will be created anyway.

comment How to unpack a downloaded tar.bz2 archive?
clearly you are not aware of how to navigate in linux. Check this links: linuxcommand.org/lts0020.php and en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Linux_For_Newbies/Command_Line. They will help you understand how to navigate in the command line.

comment Samba 2.2.12 accepts my password, but is rejecting other user accounts?
also check your share policy in the clients and compare with the working one: Local Computer - Policy->Computer Configuration->Windows Settings->Security Settings->Local Policies->Security Options, the value Microsoft network client: Digitally sign communications. I believe that in the working one this might be disable and in the non working set as always. Give it a try.

What is the config of the share? Can we see it? Also are all the clients the same I mean Windows 7 systems?

comment Overriding amended time stamps
Did you try to debug to see why only works the first time? You have a logic error there that you did not take into account. suggestion: put set -x before IFS and set +x after done. then run the script twice and you will understand why it's adding timestamps.

comment how to install yoono-desktop?
this is more of a question to: getsatisfaction.com/yoono but in any case, yum works with rpm, the file available at the site is a tar.bz2. Generally you download and do bunzip2 <file>; tar xfv <file_without_bz2> and then run

take a look into samba software. you will need smbclient and smbmount if you want to mount the shares. Assuming all shares are SMB based.
