centos/redhat 6 nproc thread limit 1024

Looks like they enforced an arbitrary limit of 1000 or 1024 threads in CentOS 6 [it wasn't limited by default in CentOS 5] based on this bug:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=432903

And this

/etc/security/limits.d/90-nproc.conf

Lame.

netcat ssh via http proxy connect on windows

I really don’t know if this is possible without the use of cygwin for [netcat/corkscrew] operation…

update: appears you can connect “via putty” through an HTTP proxy, and I suppose after that tunnel another local port through so that things like ssh on the command line [via your tunneled port] work.

They also mention that there are some other dedicated solutions for doing this tunneling, don’t know what they are/might be, please leave comments below!
