Linux Mint – Mouting a FreeNAS iSCSI disk

I'm trying to solve a problem of network backuping on our FreeNAS server. I've already tried CIFS (where were some issues - Linux Mint - problem to access a FreeNAS CIFS share) however I have there a performance issue, especially working with huge number of files produced by the backup proces (deja-dup backup over the net). As the second alternative I'm going to try iSCSI to map a network disk/file from a freenas server.

Using tcpdump for diagnostics of DNS – debian

TCPdump is a powerful command-line packet analyzer, which may be used for analyzing of DNS question/answer process. TCPdump is preinstalled on many linux distributions. For debian it can be installed directly from the debian repository:

apt-get install tcpdump

TCPdump allows write a sniff to file or display it realtime. It provides several ways how to use it for DNS analysis. Now I will write a few examples. Deeper description is at the bottom of the page.
