SSH Tunneling with Firefox

Sometimes it is useful to route traffic through a different machine for testing or development. At work, we have a VPN to a remote facility that we haven't bothered to fix for routing, so the only way to access a certain machine over that VPN is via an SSH tunnel to a machine that is reachable over the VPN. Other times, I have used this technique to test internet-facing requests against sites I am developing. It is pretty easy, and if you don't use firefox regularly, you can treat Firefox as your "Proxy" browser and other browsers can use a normal configuration (Although you can also configure an entire system to use the proxy, other articles exists that discuss this potential).

  1. Open a terminal

Set the base image to Ubuntu must be first instruction - use docker search to find images

usage: ffmpeg [options] [[infile options] -i infile]… {[outfile options] outfile}…
Getting help:
-h — print basic options
-h long — print more options
-h full — print all options (including all format and codec specific options, very long)

Setting up an external Zookeeper Solr Cluster

Setting up an external Zookeeper Solr Cluster

This is a step by step instruction on how to create a cluster that has three Solr nodes running in cloud mode. These instructions should work on both a local cluster (for testing) and a remote cluster where each server runs in its own physical machine. This was tested on Solr version 5.4.1 and Zookeeper version 3.4.6

Installing Solr and Zookeeper

  • Download and extract Solr:
    • curl -O
    • mkdir /opt/solr

The documentation around the basics of the Solr query syntax is terrible, this is an attempt to alleviate the doc-shock associated with trying to learn some fundamentals.

Solr Query Syntax Basics

This is a super basic beginners guide to Solr Lucene query syntax. We're going to cover running a straightforward query, as well as some of the more useful functionality such as filtering and creating facets. We'll point out some things you can't do and generally give you enough instruction so that you can get yourself into trouble.

For testing you need a REST client capable of sending requests to your Solr instance. Either RESTClient for Firefox or Postman for Chrome are good choices.


Request Specific Fields

To specify a list of fields to return instead of the default Solr response use fl and provide a comma delimited list of fields:

airtel recharge

Hi @Airtel_Presence why do you need to validate the OTP when recharging? I was trying to help a person who don't even know how to read the message. And stuck to get the OTP to give the best offer you provide on the phone :-(

Hi! I appreciate you reaching out here, Hari! I'd be happy to take a closer look. Can you please explain a little about the situation in a DM? I can then follow this up appropriately. Rgds, Swati
