Switching from your ISP’s offering to a custom DNS server can be beneficial. As many have experienced, these public DNS servers from the house of Google, Cisco, and others offer much better performance in terms of latency and features. ….. So, if you’re looking for some good custom DNS servers, here we have compiled a list of the most popular and reliable public DNS servers in the market.

A new user needs to be added as a samba user in Linux to be able to access the samba share. The samba user can then connect to the Samba server using a samba password and access the shared resources. In this tutorial, we will walk you the procedure of adding a samba user

In this project, we will show you how to set up a WireGuard VPN on the Raspberry Pi.
WireGuard is a new VPN protocol that has recently been going a lot of popularity.
There are a couple of advantages to using the WireGuard VPN on your Raspberry Pi over OpenVPN.

The ip command used to display, configure or manipulate routing, network interfaces, and tunnels in Linux operating systems. This comes with iproute2 collections of tools that have replaced net-tools utilities.
We have traditionally used ifconfig command which is now deprecated and now it is encouraged to use iproute2 tools.
In this tutorial, I will go through examples with explanations of how to use the ip command for administrating your Linux TCP/IP network.

If you have ever wanted to use a Raspberry Pi Zero with a wired Ethernet port, the article linked below shows an easy and inexpensive way to do it. Sure, you can always use one of those Ethernet to USB dongles but those cost more, and where’s the fun in that?
Adding an Ethernet port to a Raspberry Pi Zero is quick and easy using a cheap ENC28J60 ethernet module. Start your Pi Zero Ethernet upgrade project now.

This post includes SCP examples. SCP or secure copy allows secure transferring of files between a local host and a remote host or between two remote hosts. It uses the same authentication and security as the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol from which it is based. SCP is loved for it’s simplicity, security and pre-installed availability.

Thanks to the inexpensive Raspberry Pi Zero, Internet of Things (IoT) projects will continue to grow. One disadvantage which the Zero (not W) and A+ models have is the lack of Ethernet connectivity. That would not be a problem, if not just a single (micro) USB port onboard.
In order to connect these models with the network by Ethernet cable without a WLAN adapter, one can do this over the GPIOs: All you need is the “ENC28J60” module, the connection of which is shown in this tutorial.

In this tutorial, we will cover SSH port forwarding in Linux. This is a function of the SSH utility that Linux administrators use to create encrypted and secure relays across different systems.
SSH port forwarding, also called SSH tunneling, is used to create a secure connection between two or more systems. Applications can then use these tunnels to transmit data.
