Not an Ubuntu Topic, but a Humanity Towards Others

Hi, I'm completely sorry to publish this article in the Ubuntu planet, as it's not related to any Ubuntu Topic.

I'm writing to you, requesting your help for one friend, coworker, Laura Cano. She has been indirectly involved in our Ubuntu Honduras Team. (She did the proof reading of our English articles).

She is currently fighting Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia for the second time. In order to recover she needs a bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately, this procedure is not done in Honduras. Meaning she would have to go abroad to get the transplant done as well as looking for a donor, getting the proper medical examinations, and other expenses. She cannot afford any of these because she is still recovering economically from the first episode.

If you will like to help Laura please feel free to do so: or sharing this link to your friends will be of great help!

As I mention at the beginning, this is not an Ubuntu Topic, but as the meaning of Ubuntu is Humanity Toward Others, we can help any way to this cause.


PS. If this post violates the policies of the Ubuntu Planet, please let me know, so we can remove it and prevent any issue.

Find which devices are connected to our network

Sometimes, we want to know how many devices are connected to our network. With any Unix OS you get easily know this. For this small tutorial we´re going to use Lubuntu 16.04.

We will use nmap. Nmap (Network Mapper) is a security scanner. It is used to discover hosts and services on a computer network.

For installing it, we first do

sudo apt-get install nmap
If we just need to identify the host names

 sudo nmap -sL  The result of this command will be

Starting Nmap 7.01 ( ) at 2016-10-02 12:39 CST
Nmap scan report for
Nmap scan report for
Nmap scan report for
Nmap scan report for
Nmap scan report for
Nmap scan report for

If we need to know the OS of the devices we have connected we do a:

sudo nmap -O
The address depends of your network, you should do a ifconfig for knowing yours.
The result of this command will be something like this:

Nmap scan report for 192.168…

La ultima alegría de los sampedranos del 2017

El año 2017 esta por terminar, y para la ciudadanía de la capital industrial ha sido un año singular. La ciudad se enorgullecía de que en nuestro Aeropuerto Ramon Villeda Morales, íbamos a tener el único vuelo directo entre Europa y Honduras. Finalmente se empezaba a ver obras de infraestructura concluyendo en el tiempo establecido. Se podían observar los cruces de cebra en las intersecciones de la tercera avenida y primera calle, aparte que los conductores empezaron a respetarlos, y no digamos los semáforos peatonales que lindo es ver como la ciudadanía espera su momento para cruzar por el lugar que le corresponde.

Parecía que este 2017 iba a ser un año de alegrías para la ciudad, y que no iba a suceder  algo que lo podría devastar esas pequeñas alegrías que nos hacían olvidar todas esas políticas de gobierno provenientes de la capital, que han perjudicado al  territorio nacional y no digamos a la ciudad que produce mas del 40% del PIB del país .

Llegaban las elecciones y el actual a…

Access to AWS Postgres instance in private subnet

I have been working with AWS in the last days and encounter some issues when using RDS.  Generally when you're working in development environment you have setup your database as Publicly accessible and this isn't an issue. But when you're working in Production. So we place the Amazon RDS database into a private subnet. What we need to do for connecting to the database using PgAdmin or other tool?

We're going to use one of the most common methods for doing this. You will need to launch an Amazon EC2 instance in the public subnet and then use it as jumping box.

So after you have your EC2, you will need to run the following command.
See explantion below

After this, you will need to configure your PgAdmin.
The host name will be your localhost, the port is the same you define in the above command.
Maintenance database will be your DB name and the username you have for connecting.

Hope this helps you connect to your databases.
