Osx terminal

hi all,

first off thesis my first post so if i am not in the right forum, i apologize.

i'm an absolute newbie to unix. i've been reading my books and studying my crib sheets etc. but... :/

i want to accomplish two things.

1. search and remove duplicate files i.e.. audio, doc alias etc. on all hard drives on just local hd.

2. it's come to my attention TWC arris routers are not secure. when the firmware updates some settings default and at set up everything must be applied twice (straight from the techs mouth) i watched it happen while on the phone with a tier 3 tech (who was surprised i knew what i was doing) go figure... so i'd like to monitor my network.

my network setup is as follows...

modem/router 5/2.4GHz 802.11 - ping block - all irc disabled - wps disabled etc.

mac (yosemite) into ethernet port one

wifi 5GHz ssid disabled for my local i.e. apple tv & iPhone

2.4GHz for everything/one else.

both wpa/wpa2 psk/tkip/aes

but last time i logged into my router wps was enabled and a pin was generated. and someone was trying to connect to my homesharing.

i know locks only keep honest men honest. but can i do anything terminal wise to help?

thanks in advance for any help offered.

mkzftree - Create a zisofs/RockRidge compressed file tree SYNOPSIS
Takes an input file tree (INPUT) and create a corresponding compressed file tree (OUTPUT) that can be used with an appropriately patched mkisofs(8) to create a transparent-compression ISO 9660/Rock Ridge filesystem using the "ZF" compression records. OPTIONS
-f, --force Always compress all files, even if they get larger when compressed. -z level, --level level Select compression level (1-9, default is 9). Lower compression levels are faster, but typically result in larger output. -u, --uncompress Uncompress an already compressed tree. This can be used to read a compressed filesystem on a system which cannot read them natively. -p parallelism, --parallelism parallelism Compress in parallel. The parallelism value indicates how many compression threads are allowed to run. -x, --one-filesystem Do not cross filesystem boundaries, but create directory stubs at mount points. -X, --strict-one-filesystem Do not cross filesystem boundaries, and do not create directory stubs at mount points. -C path, --crib-path path Steal ("crib") files from another directory if it looks (based on name, size, type and modification time) like they match entries in the new filesystem. The "crib tree" is usually the compressed version of an older version of the same workload; this thus allows for "incremental rebuilds" of a compressed filesystem tree. The files are hardlinked from the crib tree to the output tree, so if it is desirable to keep the link count correct the crib path should be deleted before running mkisofs. The crib tree must be on the same filesystem as the output tree. -l, --local Do not recurse into subdirectories, but create the directories themselves. -L, --strict-local Do not recurse into subdirectories, and do not create directories. -F, --file Indicates that INPUT may not necessarily be a directory; this allows operation on a single file. Note especially that if -F is specified, and INPUT is a symlink, the symlink itself will be copied rather than whatever it happens to point to. -s, --sloppy Treat file modes, times and ownership data as less than precious information and don't abort if they cannot be set. This may be useful if running mkisofs on an input tree you do not own. -v, --verbose Increase the program verbosity. -V value, --verbosity value Set the program verbosity to value. -q, --quiet Issue no messages whatsoever, including error messages. This is the same as specifying -V 0. -h, --help Display a brief help message. -w, --version Display the release version. BUGS
Long options (beginning with --) may not work on all systems. See the message printed out by mkzftree -h to see if this applies to your system. Inode change times (ctimes) are not copied. This is a system limitation and applies to all file copy programs. If using the parallel option (-z) the access times (atimes) on directories may or may not be copied. If it is important that the atimes on directories are copied exactly, avoid using -z. AUTHOR
