comment How to learn linux?
There are some good suggestions here but I can't agree with the "avoid books" comment which as it is worded is plain wrong. Yes, the UI applications and environment change very often but it's not about learning to use applications, but the basics and those are fairly stable and if you grasp them, learning to use applications isn't much of an issue.

comment How to allow remote connections to Flask?
You don't need localtunnel :) What the netstat output shows you is that your HTTP server is only accepting connections from your local machine. It looks like you need to change SERVER_NAME variable in Flask's configuration.

comment How can I open specific ports for my Apache server?
Is this about allowing incoming connections to specific ports Apache is already listening to or are you asking about configuring Apache to listen on specific ports? Please provide information when asking questions - in its current state your question is too vague.

comment How to allow remote connections to Flask?
This is why I suggested looking at the Flask's docs to configure it to listen on all addresses. Have you looked at it? Allowing it through the firewall alone won't fix it.

Capture the traffic and make the pcap file available to download from somewhere as per my previous comment :)

comment Which Folders To Include In backup?
Also, in addition to what the answer psny linked to, it wouldn't hurt to create a back up of the whole /etc/ directory which stores system wide settings. If you've made some changes there, it would be helpful to have an archive to get those changes from.

comment Connection timeout when accessing Github
My mistake - I didn't notice you were using HTTPS. Even though this wouldn't show you the application level problems that you might be experiencing, you'd still be able to find issues in the lower network layer which might prove to be helpful.

Of course, that's why I asked for it on the provision that it works for you :) I'm not in a rush.
