comment Configuring ssh fingerprints on dns to replace known_hosts fails
Despite the fact that OS X (10.9) now includes a 6.X version of OpenSSH, SSHFP still doesn't work because of a broken OS X implementation as reported by GitHub. Replacement with a different OpenSSH client such as one from MacPorts is the only solution currently.

Sorry, but it looks like you didn't read my full posting above. I tested using Fully Qualified Domain Names (FQDN) and that was not the issue.

comment Remote support: routing RDP over ssh tunnel?
If you're having trouble connecting, then check each part of the tunnel. From the desktop, use telnet localhost 5900; to connect to the VNC port and confirm that a connection can be made. From the server, use telnet localhost 1234; and confirm the connection. Lastly, from the laptop use telnet localhost 5900;. If each segment works, then you should be able to VNC to the localhost of the laptop.

Confirm whether VNC is listening on port 5900 or 5901 since this makes a big difference. Use lsof -Pi4; or netstat -lanpt; to check this. Also, confirm that your ssh settings allow port forwarding. Check the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file on the server and make sure that AllowTcpForwarding yes and PermitTunnel yes. Restart your ssh server if you changed the config file.

If you want to have a shell and to forward ports over a tunnel on the same connection, then remove the -fN from the command. Usually I just open a second connection instead, since closing the shell will close your port forwarding tunnel.

comment rm -fr not working
Try using the find command instead. First confirm the syntax using ls instead of rm to make sure that you get the output you expect, which should be a list of the files you want to delete. Because of the size of the directory you are dealing with, terminate the command early with Ctrl+C and scan the output: find -d /path/to/file -exec ls {} \; If everything looks good, then swap out the ls for rm -rf and hopefully the directory will be removed: find -d test -exec rm -rf {} \;

comment rm -fr not working
Try using: sudo rm -rfv /path/to/file Perhaps it is a permission issue with one of the nested files and sudo will let you get past it, although usually you get an error message if this is the case. Also the -v will verbosely list the files, so maybe it will show you if it is getting hung up on a certain file. Can you please post your output starting from the rm command you type all the way until the next prompt that the terminal returns?
