Tips & Tricks : CentOS firewalld : open port

-

Once you install CentOS 7, by default firewalld will block almost all network traffic.

In order to open ports for certain services you can easily reconfigure firewall using firewall-cmd command.

[root@localhost firewalld]# firewall-cmd --get-active-zones
public
  interfaces: eno16777728
[root@localhost firewalld]# firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=80/tcp --permanent
success
[root@localhost firewalld]# firewall-cmd --reload
success

Example contains port 80, however you can open any port using same method.
It is worth to check zones configured on your machine and make sure you open port in proper zone where service should be enabled.

Tips & Tricks : Migrating Mozilla Thunderbird settings between computers

-

If you have to move Mozilla Thunderbird data from one computer to another, you can do it by simply copying files between computer.

Folder with Thunderbird profiles is located here:

%APPDATA%\Thunderbird\Profiles\

There will be at least one or more sub-folders with profile data.

What you need to copy is content of Thunderbird profile you want to migrate to new computer.

On destination computer install Thunderbird and in same folder there will be sub-folder with default profile.

Copy all file from source profile to destination and that’s it.

In case you want to create Thunderbird profile in different folder start Thunderbird with following command:

thunderbird -p

That will allow you to define location of the new profile.

How that helps with migrating Thunderbird between folders/drives or computers.
