CollegeLinux is back!

Linux

Long time since we last released our 2.5 version in 2003 but we are finally back.

Reviews

The Apache Web server has long had the largest market share of any Web server. The downside of the server's popularity is that it makes it an attractive target for hackers. Many system administrators feel that by using firewalls and SSL they will be safe from these attacks. These measures alone, however, do not provide adequate protection.

This event also comes shortly after the departure of Jack Messman as CEO, an event which has dramatically changed Novell's business strategy, especially as it relates to its SUSE Linux products.

Getting started with dynamic DNS

Filed under
HowTos

Your ISP probably assigns your computer an IP address dynamically. It means one less thing for the both of you to think about, but it also puts you in a bind if you need to connect to your machine from the outside: you can't locate your PC amidst those of all the ISP's other customers. To overcome this obstacle, you can use dynamic DNS. Here's how to get started.
