I set up an arch box at school today, and it was the last day of school. I got it all set up the way I wanted, including openssh and the proper entry in rc.conf.
Imagine my expression when I realized that I forgot to start sshd, and didn't reboot the box.
I would like a way to use another box at school to reboot the arch box. I removed the default deny all in hosts.deny, and installed some stuff. I didn't reboot the box or start the daemons. Everything I need to start is in rc.conf, so a reboot is all that should be necessary.
Is there a security hole that I can use in the default install that will allow me to reboot the box?
School's out for summer break and I can't get back to the server room for a while.
You will have to use the social conditioning security hole for this one. Call up the secretary/janitor/security person and ask them to power cycle the box.
lol thats probably the best idea
