Linux CentOS Basics

Ssh-copy-id  root@ipaddress

Once the keys are geneated go to 
~/.ssh folder and go for the pub key this needs to go to remote system

for localsystem just copy id_rsa.pub to authorized_keys in same folder

for remote system
ssh-copy-id ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub root@ipaddress -p 22


Centos no ip address

sudo vim /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-emp0s3

And set the ONBOOT to yes


Sudo Sestatus Sudo setenforce 0 sudo nano /etc/selinux/config Change SELINUX=enforcing to disabled Sudo reboot

## disable firewall

systemctl stop firewalld systemctl disable firewalld

### VirtualBox NAT port forwarding

You can use the address of the host, e.g. if you are on that machine. You will need to set up port forwarding in VirtualBox, which can be found in the networking settings:

Set up the rule using whatever host port you want (as long as it doesn't conflict with another service on the host), and whatever your guest IP and port values are

#### RedHat 8 and CentOS 8 have Podman for containers compatible with docker to a certain extent

dnf install podman podman –info podman –version podman –help podman images podman container podman pull nginx

The order for pulling images by default is as below 
Trying to pull registry.access.redhat.com/nginx...
  unsupported: This repo requires terms acceptance and is only available on registry.redhat.io

Trying to pull registry.fedoraproject.org/nginx...
  manifest unknown: manifest unknown

Trying to pull registry.centos.org/nginx...
  manifest unknown: manifest unknown

Trying to pull docker.io/library/nginx...

Getting image source signatures

the pulled nginx image is based on debian

podman run -it nginx bash # interactive bash shell, nginx is image service nginx status service nginx start apt update ```
