Fun fact of the day!

If you enable iptables without defining an anti-lockout rule (e.g ssh from your IP). You're going to have a bad time.

@idanoo 😂 I learned that lesson back in the day when servers ran on bare metal and couldn't rely on the hypervisor console to fix things remotely. It was a walk of shame down to the server hall instead.

Now I just need to stop disabling password authentication and forgetting to copy the public key...


@aaron Hahaha done that a few times myself. My new method is keeping an ssh connection up while I change it, then test in a new terminal 😆
