DNS : Hints to limit access to known clients

I would like to set up for personal purposes a DNS server on the cloud and offer its service to several members of my family/friends. Based on their IP and the filtering options they’d like, DNS queries will be performed in confidence (filter only ads, filter only non-appropriate sites for kids, etc…). In fact, a homemade OpenDNS solution.

To do so, I can use the directive allow-from (or equivalent) of my DNS solution but due to the DNS protocol nature, I can use only IP address/netmasks. This would work fine for people with public static IP addresses but not for people with a dynamic one.

I was thinking about using a reverse proxy that does support allow-from FQDN directive and forward the query to the local DNS server once the FQDN/IP matches.

What do you think about it? Is there any other/more straightforward solution/idea?

azure ad – Access Denied error After migrate on-prem Local AD SP Database to Sharepoint Farm joined to AzureAD DS

I have migrated Sharepoint 2013 Farm which is joined to Local AD DS to Sharepoint 2016 Farm joined to AzureAD DS.

Client wants to take full use of AzureAD DS and want to migrate sharepoint farm to Azure VMs connected to AzureAD DS.

I created a Sharepoint 2016 farm. created normal webapp/Site collection and is able to access as expected.

When I attach sharepoint 2013 DB after upgrade it gives access denied to those upgrade web app.
Do I need to do any changes to existing usernames as they has been now talking to AzureAD DS instead of Local AD.

dnd 5e – If I get access to a spell attack that’s NOT part of a spell, can I use it when I take the Attack action?

Some creatures have entries in their stat block that are classified as ‘melee spell attack’, or ‘ranged spell attack’, without actually being tied to the casting of a spell. Some PC subclasses also get some of those, notably the Way of the Sun Soul and the Circle of Stars, but they are framed in such a way that still leaves no doubt as to when you can use it (with the Attack action, for the Monk, and as a bonus action on your turn, for the Druid). So let’s say I get access to the former, monster-like spell attacks.

  1. Can I use it when I take the Attack action?
  2. If not, is the reason that they are listed as ‘Actions’ on the creature’s stat block? So just like I can only use the Circle of Stars Archer feature as a bonus action, this would leave me with an Action and not a general combat option. It’s probably this, but I still need clarification about point 3.
  3. The rules for the Attack action state: “With this action, you make one melee or ranged Attack”. Nowhere here it says ‘weapon attack’. So even if the only attack option for a PC still is given by holding a weapon or having the possibility to make an unarmed strike, would this allow me to make a spell attack as a part of it if such an option were available to me outside of explicitly permittive wordings (as I said, I understand that casting a spell is its own thing, using a feature like the Archer form is its own thing, etc.).

I hope I made my question clear.

linux – GUI access possible for subscription website with only ssh access to a NAS in this IP range?

I need access to some data on a website X.
This website contains data as downloadable files and also as browsable pages.

My university pays for access to this website, I do not. This allows access to both downloadable data files and the browser pages.

I work remote, and do not have this university based access.
However, I do have access to a NAS at my university research group.

Using this access to the NAS, I am able to connect, on the terminal, from my local machine to my university NAS via ssh, and then using my university’s subscription, have successfully download files from website X simply using wget. And then transfer these, in turn, from the NAS to my local machine, using scp. No problem thus far.

Here is the help I seek:
Is it possible to browse webpages of site X, from my local machine, as I would on my local machine’s browser, just via ssh on terminal? Perhaps using X terminal? Or via some other way that allows GUI despite my remote and bridged (i.e. via intermediate NAS) connection?

Sorry if some of my terminologies are wrong – cuz I’m not a network person, I hope you’ll pardon these. And please feel free to really dumb down your answer 🙂

Thanks in advance!

root access – Temporary rooting of android device

Recently, I was wondering if rooting needs to be a binary choice – root or no root. Can I have a phone that is unrooted, but for specific tasks, I temporarily root it, or temporarily get some privilege escalation for a specific app, and then back to unrooted either on reboot or some other way?

I was intrigued to see that there has been some discussion on such things in this stack exchange site:

Any temp root method that somebody could point me to, that can be tried? It doesn’t have to work on the latest android version, although if it does, even better.

permissions – Full control, Limited Access given through a group where the user does not exist?

I have a SharePoint site where, when searching for a user at site level (using check permissions) it comes back saying the user has “Full control, limited access – Given through the ‘Site Name’ Owners Group.

However, the user is not an Owner of the site and when I click into the Owners group, they are not listed in there either.

How is this user being provided with access at site level from the specified group when they don’t appear to be in that group and how would I go about visualising and removing these user permissions?

I should add that when I click the “There are limited access users on this site. Users may have limited access if an item or document under the site has been shared with them. Show users”. It doesn’t show any additional users, but instead replaces ‘Full Control’ with ‘Full Control, Limited Access’ against the Site Owners group.

active directory – How easily and quickly access workstations that are two or three servers away from mine

I work for a small IT firm whose main client has dozens of Windows Servers (2012 R2) catering to thousands of workstations in several dozen cities.

We routinely and remotely assist end-users, and to do that, we have to:

  1. Log onto a main server in our own domain;

  2. From there, log onto a server (VM) on the client’s domain;

  3. From there, log onto yet another server where the Active Directory is set;

  4. From there, finally access the end-user workstation, either via RDP, Veyon or UltraVNC, depending on the OS the workstation has under the hood.

That’s a lot of hoops and a lot of wasted time entering credentials before finally doing our job, so I was wondering how we could speed things up by passing directly from our own workstation to the end-user’s, thus automating the whole authentication process on two server rebounds.

database – How to access array element?

I have the following array:
Array
(
(1) => DrupalnodeEntityNode Object
(
(in_preview) =>
(values:protected) => Array
(
(nid) => Array
(
(x-default) => 1
)
(vid) => Array
(
(x-default) => 19
)
(type) => Array
(
(x-default) => mak
)
(uuid) => Array
(
(x-default) => d3129b72-d115-458e-9a5e-28f23ce5d9a4
)
…….

How can I access nid from this?
