Re: Questions about LM & Ubuntu. I'm still learning ..

Thats what I meant systemd. I'm not fully fluent with LM and didn't know that is was derived off Ubuntu. Do you know if Ubuntu is derived off Debian. This is all very silly if you know this stuff but I have been unsure for a while about the bigger picture of the family of OS’s . Is LM made up of a c...

Re: Completely disable ping (LM Mate 18.3, 19)

I've been having a look around /proc/sys/ , looking at individual files and what is and is not commented out. For the tweaking of the Mint System as I'm on 18.3 at the moment (with plans to upgrade to 19.3 when its released) also looking at sysctl.d under /ect/ ; their also seems to be some further ...

Re: Completely disable ping (LM Mate 18.3, 19)

I just want to at least to an extent apologize for my stupidity as I did not read the sysctl.conf file correctly in the directory /etc/sysctl.conf . I've been reading the file thoroughly and hence realizing that " # " is actually a hashed out command as what you would have in the likes of hashed out...

Re: Completely disable ping (LM Mate 18.3, 19)

You'd enter the specific command I gave, sudo sysctl net.ipv4.icmp_echo_ignore_all=1 , from a terminal. To have it automatically executed at boot you in /etc/sysctl.conf add the line "net.ipv4.icmp_echo_ignore_all=1" -- and after doing so you can rather than reboot also simply execute sudo sysctl -...

Re: Completely disable ping (LM Mate 18.3, 19)

Can I ask, if I were to do this on my system as I'm running 18.3 would I enter this in to the terminal CLI or do I need to edit the file sysctl.conf . I've entered the following command in to the terminal, and now I'm getting a line back saying this. PING 192.168.1.xx (192.168.1.xx) 56(84) bytes of ...

With Mint the OS is the least of your security, and privacy for that matter, concerns. It's your router and browser you ought to be concerned with - way more than Linux Mint. What would you recommend with regards too the Browser like FF or Chrome. Keeping it updated is an obvious must but can any o...
