It is a New Year. As I was moving my rigs around, I felt brave enough to potentially cause chaos and upgrade the packages. Mainly doing so to keep up to date on security issues.
SSHing in showed me the state of affairs:
211 packages can be updated.
4 updates are security updates.
To update the packages, type the following into terminal:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Lots of logging information should start scrolling by. If for some reason you need to track it via an actual log file, you can do the following:
tail -f /var/log/dpkg.log
Then, reboot for good measure:
sudo shutdown -r now
Next time you login, you will see all updates have been applied.
0 packages can be updated.
0 updates are security updates.
In order to locate your WIN10 rigs on your network more easily, you have to name them via the control panel.
From the Start or Run box type:
Then follow these screenshots that show where to enter in the name of your rig.
Just moved my rigs to a network setup for DHCP, and as a result I lost control of what-rigs-have-what-IP.
The way I got a handle on it was to use nmap from one of my Ubuntu machines.
I’ve got a mix of Ubuntu and Windows machines.
To locate, I do a scan for all machines running SSH (port 22) or RDP (port 3389) on my local network (192.168.3.XXX). Then I go through and look for hosts that report “open” for the ports of interest.
sudo nmap -sS -p 22 192.168.3.0/24
sudo nmap -sS -p 3389 192.168.3.0/24
