Description Frank de Lange 2005-06-03 09:46:33 EDT
Description of problem:

There's a documentation error on the Wiki. I would have corrected it were this
allowed, but the wiki is closed for outside contributors so...

The following phrase is wrong:
------------------------------
    *  TCP Tuning—You can increase number of local system ports available by
running this command: 

     echo "1024 65000" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4.ip_local_port_range
      

You can also achieve the same by editing this parameter in the /etc/sysctl.conf
file:

     echo "1024 65000" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
      

This is the correct phrase:
---------------------------

running this command: 

     echo "1024 65000" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range

Fixed.  Please check
http://directory.fedora.redhat.com/wiki/Performance_Tuning#Linux

Also, please try to register for a wiki account.  I think that message you saw
may be an error.
Comment 2 Frank de Lange 2005-06-03 11:38:58 EDT
The "Request an account or log in" page states that...

"...We are not ready to accept contributions at this time..."

It refers to a form to request an account. This form does not exist... seems to
be policy?
Comment 3 Rich Megginson 2005-06-03 18:08:11 EDT
Oh, sorry about that.  I guess we're not quite ready to open up the wiki.  We're
working on it, should be ready soon.
