Tesseract OCR

Tesseract is picky about it's TIFF input file, and I've found that it's best to use pnmtotiff to generate them.

SSH Passwordless Login

Run ssh-keygen to create the private and publc keys.

bash> ssh-keygen

Now append the contents of .ssh/ to .ssh/authorized_keys on the remote host.

X11 VNC over SSH

This script requires x11vnc on the remote host, vncviewer on the client, and a ssh path between the two.



if [ "x$2" == "x" ] ; then

PORT=`ssh ${HOST} "x11vnc -display :0 -bg -nopw -q" | grep PORT`
PORT=`echo "${PORT}" | sed -e 's/PORT=//'`
PORT=`expr ${PORT} - 5900`

vncviewer ${HOST}:${PORT}

Self Signed Certificate

The first step is to create your RSA Private Key.

openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024

Once the private key is generated a Certificate Signing Request can be generated.

openssl req -new -key server.key -out server.csr

Remove Passphrase from Key

cp server.key
openssl rsa -in -out server.key

Generate a Self-Signed Certificate.

openssl x509 -req -days 36500 -in server.csr -signkey server.key -out server.crt

Install the Private Key and Certificate.

cp server.crt /usr/local/apache/conf/ssl.crt
cp server.key /usr/local/apache/conf/ssl.key

Configure SSL-Enabled Virtual Hosts.
