I currently think about creating a very basic shipper for log files, but wonder if it really makes sense. I am especially concerned if good tools already exists. Being lazy, I thought I ask for some wisdom from those in the know before investing more time to search solutions and weigh their quality.
I've more than once read that logstash is far too heavy for a simple shipper, and I've also heard that rsyslog is also sometimes a bit heavy (albeit much lighter) for the purpose. I think with reasonable effort we could create a tool that
ConfigServer (CSF) is advanced open-source firewall for Linux. If you are like me, I don't really care much for the native firewalld that's included with RHEL7 releases, and I've used APF for years which is basically just a frontend for iptables.
One of my favorite tools that I find myself using quite often is called "ScreenCloud". It allows you to quickly select any area of your workspace, create an sized screen shot, and then upload it or export it off to their server, your Dropbox account or an SFTP server.
If you've recently performed upgrades, either to Ubuntu >16.x or Fedora >21 or the latest version of ScreenCloud, you may be experiencing the same pain that I just endured when launching the application.
Rsyslog provides many up-to-the point error messages for config file and operational problems. These immensly helps when troubleshooting issues. Unfortunately, many users never see them. The prime reason is that most distros do never log syslog.* messages and so they are just throw away and invisible to the user. While we have been trying to make distros change their defaults, this has not been very successful.

With a VPN, all your Internet communication is encrypted and passed through a secure proxy (the VPN server) before continuing to the intended destination. To the rest of the world, the Internet traffic appears to come from the VPN server, not your home computer.
