In the course of my work for Bluetreehost I connect to dozens of machines a day. Whenever I need to transfer a file, I would fire up WinSCP, connect to the machine, and commence transfer. It worked but it was slow and a pain in the butt.

I just discovered the Zmodem function in SecureCRT. Why hasn’t anyone told me about this! Two clicks and I can transfer a file from my desktop to the directory I’m working on in the server.

So for anyone who reads this and hasn’t discovered Zmodem – give it a try! SecureCRT is the best SSH program I’ve used and this is just another reason why it is so great for me.

How to Stop an Apache DDoS Attack with mod_evasive

The first inkling that I had a problem with a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack was a note sent to my inbox: lfd on High 5 minute load average alert – 89.14 My initial thought was that a site on my server was getting Slashdotted or encountering the Digg or Reddit effect. I run Chartbeat on several sites where this occasionally happens and I will usually get an alert from them first. A quick look at the Extended status page from Apache showed that I had a much different kind of problem.
