• Linux: Close 49200 socket out of TIME_WAIT state

    One of my programs on Linux keeps crashing on me. When I try to open it quick after it closes, I see it is listening on socket 49201 instead of 49200 (that's what it was in the first time). When I looked at Netstat, it shows that 49200 is a TIME_WAIT state. Can I force the socket out of this state?...

  • How do I test if a port is open on a remote system?

    A while back, I used telnet to check if a port on my remote post was open. But at my new job, the systems don't have telnet installed / all outbound connections to host are blocked. Does anyone know of a way to see if a port is open on a remote system? I'm using Linux. Thank you.

    On my Linux machine, I'm trying to change the user password but when I tried to keep it similar to the old one, Linux said that they were too close. But how would Linux know that? Isn't the password saved as a hash?
