UNIX internet commands have remained mostly the same since the creation of the internet because UNIX is an operating system that can be run on any network server or workstation. From the beginning UNIX was the backbone of the internet. UNIX is what keeps the internet functioning today. The commands have remained mostly the same because even though the internet has emerged the commands have remained the same. UNIX was developed over the past 25 years.
The commands are still the same partly because UNIX has a reputation for scalability and stability. This helps to keep up with the times of today’s operating system. I don't believe there was or is a need for change of commands. The same commands are still accessible as they were over 25 years ago.
If we take it a step further looking at today’s atmosphere schools for example don’t receive the same funding as they have in the past. Meaning n educational environment their budgets are limited. With UNIX commands remaining the same there is no need for schools to spend resources they don’t have. I also think that the commands have remained the same because computers were not as advanced before as they are now. Computers now can handle UNIX and others alike along with possible upgrades.
Unlike many others UNIX can adapt to technology changes without changing itself. However, the internet hasn’t changed since the beginning of time. Throughout the life span of UNIX new protocols were developed and new applications implemented. Some protocols that are still accessible are SCP, SSH, and TFTP. As these may have changed or been developed the only thing really changing throughout UNIX was its security.
Security updates can be added, modified, and deleted without changing how and what UNIX does. If we take a look at other operating systems and what they have evolved to its pretty much nothing. UNIX is still…...

...| UNIX Performance Monitoring | My Research Paper | Student: Dwayne Blanchard Instructor: Professor Cliff KrahenbillAdvanced UNIX AdministrationMarch 3, 2012 | | | | | | The topic of my research paper will be on UNIX performance monitoring. The reason for choosing this topic is for personal understanding on how much UNIX performance monitoring differs from the monitoring of Windows based computers. This research paper is not to compare the two systems but to gain an understanding of how UNIX monitors performance. I don’t have any personal experience with working with UNIX systems, but as always eager to gain insight of different operating systems. The first thing I would like to discover is some of the common performance problems encountered caused by software, hardware and the combination of the two, the different terminologies associated with the processes via hardware or software, and finally what different utilities are used for monitoring these problems. We all know that UNIX has been around since the early 1970’s and the developments of performance tools have been around for a long time to enable system administrators in tuning systems for optimal performance. Operating systems performance problems normally involves process management, memory management, and scheduling. The object of performance on UNIX based systems is to determine the amount of time the operating system spends during......

...The UNIX OS What is UNIX? UNIX is a Main Frame operating system developed by AT&T employees at Bell Labs (1969 – 1971). UNIX originally was named “Unics” (Uniplexed Information & Computing Service). It was renamed “Unix” when it could support multiple users. In 1972 UNIX was rewritten in the C programming language. C was developed for the UNIX OS to write programming for the UNIX OS. C is a low level programming language but not as low level as assembly. So C makes writing programs easier than Assembly and also makes them hardware independent. The entire UNIX OS was rewritten in the C programming language. So this made UNIX portable. You don’t have to rewrite the operating system whenever you wanted to port it to a new type of hardware. In 1975 AT&T, because of a court order centering around an anti-trust case, was forbidden from entering the computer software business. Thus, unable to sell the UNIX OS, they gave it away. If you wrote to them and asked for a copy of UNIX-they would give you a free license and send you all the source code. This made it attractive for government agencies, universities and corporations. They could get this free, and very powerful operating system, to run on their main frames. 1975 was the point when computers were beginning to take off and there are a lot of people at universities learning about computers for the first time, getting access to main frame computers for the first time and they’re using UNIX. So UNIX becomes......

...Protection Scheme with Unix Adam Macon POS/355 8-10-13 Mr. Groves When considering a protection scheme that will protect up to 5,000 users the best choice would be Unix. Unix is an operating system developed in the 70’s in AT&T Bell Laboratories. The unique thing about Unix is that it is written in C, which gives it the ability to be portable and able to be integrated with other Unix machines. Program written on one Unix machine can be easily adapted to other Unix machines (C is particularly well-integrated with the operating system itself) (David 2013). We will discuss exactly what the protection scheme is with Unix and how 4900 users can be one file. Unix system has the ability to serve many users and these users can be organized in groups. A Unix file can distribute ownership to three different classes of users, which are user, group, and other. User is the directory owner, which is the person who created the file, group is the members of the group, and others are the users who aren’t members of the group and are not the file owner. There are three permissions for User, Group, and Others, which are Read, Write, and Execute. A user with Read permission can look at contents of that particular file, a user with Write permission can change contents in that file, and a user with Execute permission can use that particular file as a Unisex system command. Permissions only an be changed by the chmod command. To be able to achieve having 4,990 users on one file you......

...(ACL) they are on which is a set of rules or guidelines which sets the permission level and access a user will have to network assets. UNIX systems are typically based on the file access control schema, which is designed to assign a User Identification number or User ID, which is unique to the individual user. The same goes for a group of users as well but instead of a single user the users are under the Group ID umbrella, which lists all individual users and designates their permissions within the group. A user can have a different set of access within their single user permission opposed to their group permissions. Files are typically secured within UNIX file permissions and through ACLs. Other types of files such as those with sticky bits, and files that are executable require additional special security measures to be implemented in order for users to access them. Traditional UNIX file permissions are classified by ownership using three classes of users: users, groups and others. The owner of the file can usually has the ability to assign or modify file permissions. The root account can also change a file's ownership. All of the permissions are carried out by command line input by the user who owns the file and they are in charge of giving the group access. Read, write, execute and deny. For example if a UNIX Administrator had 5,000 users and wanted 4,990 to access one file in particular they would need to plan accordingly when they assign......

Programming in Unix

...Programming in Unix Introduction to Sociology In today’s society, computers have played a major part of how corporations and individuals conduct business. In a sense, they have made some of the hardest tasks fairly easy by the click of a button or by typing a certain command. Computer programs perform both simple and complex calculations with user seeing the end result. However, computer programs have to be written by computer programmers. To understand how programs work, you must consider how the computer interprets the information entered by the programmer. “A program is a set of instructions that guide the computer in performing its basic and logical arithmetic operations (Afzal, 2008, p. 349).” These programs have to be written in a certain language for the computer to interpret. There are several types of languages used to write programs. Although the programmer types words and numbers to perform these mathematical and logical calculations, the computer sees only 1’s and 0’s. This is called machine language. There is also assembler language. “Instead of a series of zeros and ones, assembler language uses some recognized symbols, called mnemonics (memory aids), to represent instructions (Afzal, 2008, p. 349).” High level language is the language in which the programmer desires to write in such as Pascal, C++, C, and Java to name a few. To translate a high level language to machine language, a compiler or an interpreter must be used. The first......

...Mission command is the modern style of military command that, in the words of Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, requires a commander to “blend the art of command and the science of control.” In mission command, the commander is the focal point of the operations process. To carry out the operations process successfully, a commander must do the following: understand the operational environment and problem at hand, envision the end state and visualize the nature and design of the operation, direct the joint warfighting functions, constantly assess the process, and lead soldiers by providing direction and motivation. Although mission command is a newly coined term, its principles have been apparent since 1775 when the colonial army was formed. Following the initiation of the American Revolutionary War, American military troops trapped British forces inside the city of Boston. Lacking the forces necessary to attack the rebels, Gen. Thomas Gage, the British commander, opted to secure the surrounding terrain on the Charleston Peninsula. He hoped to prevent the enemy from capturing the terrain that would enable them to bombard Boston with artillery. Aware of the enemy’s plan, Col. William Prescott led approximately 1,200 soldiers atop Breed’s Hill (originally thought to be Bunker’s Hill) on June 16, 1775, and constructed an earthen redoubt. In response, the British Army deployed 2,300 soldiers to attack the colonials. After three bloody assaults, the British captured Breed’s Hill.......

...UNIX operating system and its features UNIX is a certified brand of The Open Group that belongs to a family of computer operating systems. UNIX stands among some initial operating systems which has to be written in a high level programming language that is C. Further Bell labs circulated it in a way that anyone could customize it according to his own wishes. As a result in late 70’s, number of versions of this operating systems were running at several places [Vangie Beal(2015)]. File permissions features of UNIX The most important feature of UNIX Operating system is that it procures a safe and sound method for storing data and information. Each file stored in UNIX has some characteristics and attributes like “owner permissions” in which it specifies that what actions and tasks the owner of the information or file can execute or perform. The second permission is “group permissions” which allows the user who is a part of group can perform different functions on a particular file of the same group but for this one must have to be a part of the group. The third is “other permissions”. It is a permission which determines what type of actions and functions, rest of the users can perform on particular file [Tutorialspoint(2014)]. Security feature of UNIX The security of the systems can be increased by some specific settings which controls the access of different users. This feature includes read, write and execute access options. The read access option allows users to view......

Next, use a relative path to make the spreadsheets directory your current working directory. Now use a command with dots in it to make the documents directory your current working directory. 11. With your home directory as your current directory, use the command to remove read, write, and execute permissions from group and others for the spreadsheets directory. Next, verify that your change has taken place. 12. Use the cat command to create a two-line file in your home directory called datainfo. On the first line, enter 144, and on the second line, enter 288. After the file is created, copy it from your home directory to the spreadsheets directory you created. 13. Determine the default permissions on the datainfo file you created. Next, set the permissions on the datainfo file so that the owner, group, and others can read and execute the file. (Otherwise, leave the default settings as is.) 14. Append the current month’s calendar to the datainfo file that is in your home directory. Next, copy your changed datainfo file over the older datainfo file in the spreadsheets directory, but use the copy option that prompts you before you overwrite the file in the spreadsheets directory.

...There are several editors used in UNIX at present time, NEdit, Emacs, VI, and Pico to name a few. Editors are mainly used to replace the default editors in UNIX. Some people have found the default editor to be complicated and unfriendly to operate. I have chosen Emacs and Vi to discuss. Emacs was derived from a version of Multics which saw its inception August 15, 1979. The original creator was Richard Stallman, the software is a video-oriented text preparation and editing system it ran on Honeywell’s Multics system it was widely accepted at MIT and had a large user community. This acceptance led to the development of protocols for the ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network) which is now known more commonly as the Internet. It was designed for the use of video-oriented software in a device independent fashion. ( Greenberg,1996) Emacs was later rewritten on a C platform by James Goslin in 1982. Which he then sold to Unipress and it was renamed Unipress Emacs. One of the major advantages of using Emacs would be the speed of the software. It has the ability to open large files edit them and save in the time it takes to load some programs in windows. The other editor I spoke of earlier would be Vi. The Vi editor was created in 1976 by Bill Joy at the University of California at Berkeley. Bill Joy later worked at Sun Microsystems as the Chief Scientist. Vi is not a GUI (graphic user interface) mode text editor, although it still remains popular. It holds the......
