Lock your screen using command line

Hi friends,
I read one article today and that was fantastic.I am sharing that article here hope you all like it.

Lock your Screen using command line in Fedora 10 and Ubuntu.

This command is extraordinary for who work on terminal continuously and want to step away for some movements.

gnome-screensaver-command –lock

NOTE –In this command, where you see “–lock”, it is really 2 hyphens with no spaces in between, followed by “lock” …  – – lock. WordPress renders two hyphens put together as… –

When you execute above command then it will activate your screen saver and prompt for password to login.But as i metioned that command is pretty long so you need to create alias for that.To create alias Follow below method.

Open your .bashrc file into your favorite editor i am using vim as my editor.before editing file dont forget to make backup.
vim .bashrc (if you are not at home directory prompt then vim /home/<user-name>/.bashrc)

Now just move to end of file and paste below content.
alias lock=’gnome-screensaver-command –lock’

Save & Exit from File.

Now above commands tells your ubuntu or fedora that if you type in lock ,it actually executes gnome-screensaver-command –lock

Enjoy Lock Screen from Command Prompt 🙂

10 iptables rules to help secure your Linux box

Hi Friends,

Today I read nice article about iptables from techrepublic. I like that Article i am sharing with you guys i hope you also Like it.

The iptables tool is a magnificent means of securing a Linux box. But
it can be rather overwhelming. Even after you gain a solid
understanding of the command structure and know what to lock down and
how to lock it down, iptables can be confusing. But the nice thing
about iptables is that it’s fairly universal in its protection. So
having a few iptables rules to put together into a script can make
this job much easier.
