Re: [SOLVED] Updating with https help

Look under "Additional repositories" tab in Software Sources to see if you can enable it from there. Unfortunately for me it is not there. Normally you click the check mark to enable but it is missing for me. If someone can please visit the software sources window shown below. You should see the Mi...

Re: [SOLVED] Updating with https help

I reinstalled Mint Cinnamon 19.1, it looks like I can't install the Nvidia driver over HTTPS. My Mint CD is not in "additional repositories" like usual.
I'm trying to install from my CD, but not sure how to add it as an additional repository. If anyone can help it's appreciated.

Assuming in your actual file it says https:// and not https;// that looks all good.
I forgot to leave a note about that, it was to keep my links from formatting into actual links by the forum software.
Thanks for the help everyone! :D

Re: Updating with https help

Note that you'll have to manually change the -security repo to use your mirror. By default this does not use a mirror to ensure you get timely security updates even if your mirror goes stale. So keep that in mind when choosing a mirror. Not all my packages were downloading. I noticed I missed this ...

Re: Updating with https help

I'm unfamiliar with the partner repository . I'm unsure how to disable it. Last line of the file you've got. Just remove it. I open /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list and remove the last line to disable the partner repository. Ok. If I remove the partner repository, can it p...

[SOLVED] Updating with https help

Switch to a mirror that supports https, then edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-source-repositories.list to change references to http:// to https:// instead.

Re: Can I monitor connections to open ports?

If I remember correctly with Mint 19 I used to open port 53, 443, and 80. And my programs connected fine.

Has anything changed with how Mint 19.1 handles program connections recently?

Re: [SOLVED by updates] Flaw in Linux APT Allows Remote Attackers to Hack Systems

You got already those two commands to run. Please note, as explained by gm10, that the second one will update all the packages there are to update, that is, it will override your preferences set in the Update Manager. So the answer to your question in your first post would be yes and no. Yes, if yo...

Re: Can I monitor connections to open ports?

I can't seem to run netstat or lsof commands with sudo because I use a user account, not an admin account. Using an "admin" account means I need to log in with the same password that is used to make "sudo" system changes which makes me nervous. you can still run the command without sudo but you wil...

Re: Can I monitor connections to open ports?

I noticed the report tab wouldn't show Firefox connected or it's open ports. It's probably because the ports Firefox uses were already opened. But it would be nice if it showed everything opening a port. I'm very paranoid about knowing what process is using the internet. And I miss this functionalit...

Re: Can I monitor connections to open ports?

I open ports 53 for DNS, and 443 for HTTPS so I'm able to visit websites. You do not need to open (allow incoming, add firewall rules) on those ports for your system to work normally like visiting websites unless you are running your own DNS server or your own web server or web server apps. The typ...

It seems I struggle with wording my questions clearly. That's my fault. :( I have Incoming and Outgoing connections set to reject.

Can I monitor connections to open ports?

I block all ports in my firewall, except those necessary for visiting websites.

Is there a way to monitor what ports a program tries to use so I can open them?

Thanks for the help.
