comment how to remove best-deals-products.com from firefox
Burn your Firefox profile, and remove addons. Then install NoScript, and try again and see this happens. If not, then something in your profile (addons, etc.) was involved. (NOTE: Burning your firefox profile will remove all your configurations, cookies, favorites, etc.)

That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure. Thanks for your answer!

comment NO AUDIO BECAUSE AUDIO JACK CANNOT DETECT ANYTHING [14.10]DeskTop
You have two issues: (1) you are using a PPA with third party software for the jack detection, and (2) you are using a PPA for your audio driver and such on a development branch most likely. Since both of those PPAs return 404s which indicates packages are not available for them, I think you are a little SOL. The dupe I linked will fix the 404s, but it won't help as much with the other stuff.

comment Generating SSL certificate on Ubuntu AWS. Wrong Issued to
Where did you generate the cert? Via namecheap or with an OpenSSL command on your servers command line to get the certificate file

comment Ubuntu Server Controlling Windows 7/8/8.1/10 Clients
@BufordT.Justice Ubuntu workstations can achieve this because you could have Linux permissions, but Updates are controlled differently. You would probably be looking into Landscape or some other management system to control access and such. I'm not capable of giving you insight into configuration of that, though, and that is a separate question in its own right.

comment create ssh server on my ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Make sure that you've installed openssh-server, as openssh isn't a package.

Define "control". Control implies an extremely broad category of many many types of controls, so specifics will be useful here.

comment bash: populating array with elements containing spaces and special characters
Does using single quotes work in this case? I read that Bash interprets things inside a single-quoted string as literals, rather than interpreting it. (I.E. 'foo foobar foo\bar\baz 66@SUDO' might be read as those three elements? The problem is single quotes though in an element...)

comment Fastest way to copy lots of data
@Roffel ideally going forward you would be doing transactional updates, rather than copying between servers. You may have a ton of data to transfer initially but you should be keeping backups, and doing transactional updates (i.e. "This data is new, send it to the other server" rather than all-at-once)

comment Fastest way to copy lots of data
Are scp and rsync not usable in your case? Or, connecting the two servers over a single server-to-server network NIC connection (static IPs on both NICs with the same IP range) on a network range not managed by your network? (A similar situation showed up at work hence why I ask)

comment Why does my Wireless connection block my internet traffic?
Observation: In my computer, Network Manager defaults the Ethernet as the default route. I've had to change this in the past, manually, via the command line, by forcing the default route to be through the wifi card instead of ethernet, and other weirdness. (However your answer is correct, you'd have to manually change the default route in these cases)

comment Does wget or any other http file downloader on Ubuntu support wild cards?
It is an impossibility if you need true wild cards - the server being reached has to serve the exact request and the spec for such communications isn't something the web server can process in most if not all cases.

comment What's the scope of `ufw` and its implicit Deny rule with regards to my network?
@user3435500 Any software firewall will only affect the system it's installed on, unless that server is configured to route all the traffic for the network around. As such, I can't say whether FirewallD will or won't support the network because one computer in your likely setup (i assume you have one router that handles all the connections for your network) won't be able to affect traffic on the entire network. You have to control traffic at the router, essentially, as it handles routing of data to/from computers on the network to/from other systems and the internet.

comment What's the scope of `ufw` and its implicit Deny rule with regards to my network?
@user3435500 You still fail to understand the scope of ufw. ufw only applies to the machine it is installed on. It has zero effect on the traffic patterns of other computers, it merely controls the rules for the system it is installed on, and that's all. To control the traffic on your Windows XP box, you have to configure the Windows firewall, or put a firewall appliance on your network that can make rulesets that affect multiple networked systems at once (which would include your WinXP and Ubuntu boxes)

comment What's the scope of `ufw` and its implicit Deny rule with regards to my network?
@user3435500 No, you have two directions for traffic: INBOUND and OUTBOUND. The rule you have to deny Telnet is for "INBOUND" traffic to "Ubuntu System #1". All other systems will still be able to communicate otherwise. If the rule were put into the "OUTBOUND" rules for any one system to deny Port 80, then that system would not be able to reach http sites. If your rule is on US#1 to "ALLOW 80 INBOUND" then that accepts any traffic heading TO that box on port 80, and then responds accordingly where the OUTBOUND rules permit.

comment What's the scope of `ufw` and its implicit Deny rule with regards to my network?
I've also reread your question with your comments, and have updated the title to indicate that you're asking the scope of coverage of ufw (i.e. "is it one computer or the entire network the rule affects" being the effective question)
