Enabling Telnet/Ftp Services on RHEL

Linux is configured to run the Telnet and FTP server, but by default, these services are not enabled.

Enabling Services

Telnet
To enable the telnet service, login to the server as the root user account and run the following commands:
# chkconfig telnet on
# service xinetd reload
Reloading configuration: [ OK ]

FTP
The FTP server (wu-ftpd) is no longer available with xinetd. It has been replaced with vsftp and can be started from /etc/init.d/vsftpd as in the following:
# /etc/init.d/vsftpd start
Starting vsftpd for vsftpd: [ OK ]
If you want the vsftpd service to start and stop when recycling (rebooting) the machine, you can create the following symbolic links:
# ln -s /etc/init.d/vsftpd /etc/rc3.d/S56vsftpd
# ln -s /etc/init.d/vsftpd /etc/rc4.d/S56vsftpd
# ln -s /etc/init.d/vsftpd /etc/rc5.d/S56vsftpd

Allowing Root Logins to Telnet and FTP Services

Configure Telnet for root logins
Simply edit the file /etc/securetty and add the following to the end of the file:
pts/0
pts/1
pts/2
pts/3
pts/4
pts/5
pts/6
pts/7
pts/8
pts/9
This will allow up to 10 telnet sessions to the server as root.

Configure FTP for root logins
Edit the files /etc/vsftpd.ftpusers and /etc/vsftpd.user_list and remove the ‘root’ line from each file.

Exploring Node.js Internals

I found a great article explaining Node JS internals, must read : https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2020/04/nodejs-internals/ Some other articles : Introduction to Node.js Being an official website, Node.dev explains what Node.js is, as well as its package managers, and lists web frameworks built on top of it. “ JavaScript & Node.js ”,  The Node Beginner Book This book by  Manuel Kiessling  does a fantastic job of explaining Node.js, after warning that JavaScript in the browser is not the same as the one in Node.js, even though both are written in the same language. Beginning Node.js This beginner book goes beyond an explanation of the runtime. It teaches about packages and streams and creating a web server with the Express framework. LibUV This is the official documentation of the supporting C++ code of the Node.js runtime. V8 This is the official documentation of the JavaScript engine that makes it possible to write Node.js with JavaScript.

Hibernate Object Conversations

Session methods to use for object conversations Save() A new instance being attached to the session. An insert will be scheduled. Update() Call Update to make a transient object persistent again. It will force a SQL update on the transient object. This is because Hibernate does not know whether the object is dirty or not and to be safe by default schedules an update. This method will throw an exception, if the entity is already registered with the session. - NonUniqueObjectException is thrown. saveOrUpdate() Either a save or an update will be called based on whether the identifier exists or not. No identifier - save is called, else update is called. Or for a better understanding, if the object is transient, then a save is called, if the object is persistent, then an update is called. Reattaching an unmodified instance - If you know for sure that an object is not modified and you just want to make it persistent again - Session.lock(item, LockMode.No
