Removing those darn .DS_Store and .AppleDouble directories from shared network storage

04/08/2020 Aucun commentaire


Here is the command to stop the creation of .DS_Store Directories that pollute your network storage resources. For For Mac OS X Lion you need to use:
defaults write DSDontWriteNetworkStores true
Now you must Logoff or Restart.


To stop the creation of .AppleDouble folders you need to edit your AFP service configuration.  There is usually a “No AppleDouble” or “Enable AppleDouble” configuration setting that needs to be set true (For the NO option) or set to false (For the Enable Option).

Note: In FreeNAS 8.0.4 it seems that the .AppleDouble directories are created anyway regardless of setting.  But at least they seem to be empty and can be removed (rm -r /path/).

The Who, What, and When

The .AppleDouble Directories are used by Mac OS X to store Extended Attributes (exattr) for files residing on filesystems that are not formatted HFS+.  They are most commonly seen when moving a flash drive from your Mac to your Windows Machine.

The .DS_Store Directories store Finder Information.  Such as in “Get File Information” you can access a “Comments” field.  If you provide information on the file i the comment it is stored and Finder Information.  If this directory is missing on remote storage, other Mac users would not be able to see the comment you created.

Why get rid of them?

On network storage you can have the same share presented over AFP (Apple Filing Protocol) andCIFS (Common Internet File System).  Windows users that connect over CIFS can see the extra Apple directories.  The files often copy the name of the original file and prefix it with “._”.  Windows users can mistakenly access these files and think their data is corrupt.

How to Setup Reverse SSH Tunnel on Linux

03/08/2020 Aucun commentaire

Reverse SSH is a technique that can be used to access systems (that are behind a firewall) from the outside world.

As you already know SSH is a network protocol that supports cryptographic communication between network nodes. Using this protocol, you can do a secure remote login, secure copy from/to a remote machine etc.

You’ll typically do the following to connect to a remote server securely using ssh command.

$ ssh [your-account-login]@[server-ip]

What is Reverse SSH?

SSH is very good tool to access remote machine or server securely. But, the problem arises when you try to connect to a remote server which is behind a firewall and this firewall denies any incoming connection or data transfer request that has no prior outgoing request. This means that only those connections would be allowed which are initiated by the remote server machine. This is a real problem for those who want to access this server machine remotely.
