comment What is blocking: Firewall and tcpwrapper?
A firewall on your side, or on the remote side? I.e., can you log into the firewall?

@roaima possibly Timothy runs it as root (which would explain why he needs youruser at the end). It might work somewhere...

comment What exactly does init do?
Ok, I guess later I can write up a brief summary (will be a bit, and of course someone else is welcome to beat me to it). Details of course are best learned by reading the scripts/code.

comment What exactly does init do?
I see... are you aware that traditionally init did not do things like that—systemd does, but traditional init spawned off a shell script which called other shell scripts which did those things. That's why I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you asking what the minimum to bring a Linux box from init to multi-user mode is, regardless of which part traditionally did that?

comment What exactly does init do?
Well, init=/bin/sh will get you a simple shell... So I guess the bare minimum is "exec /bin/sh". But presumably that's not what you meant.

comment mdadm - Can't Remove Components In RADI1
Hmm... 8:17 is sdb1. (8:65 is sde1) But that one was missing too, so I guess that works...

@SajanParikh indeed, somehow I'd missed the lines showing you'd already tried failed and detached. Glad that mknod worked.

comment How to store a large folder in a single file without compression
FYI: There are fast compression programs, some which will be faster than your disk write speed, and many that will be faster than your network. Using one of those will actually speed things up, if the data is at all compressible. E.g., lzop is designed for speed.
