If you're edgy about security for your SOHO LAN, you might want to consider moving your first line of defense out past your firewall. How about on your router, for example? If your router runs OpenWrt, you can do exactly that, by running Snort, the open source intrusion detection system (IDS) project that has become the most widely deployed IDS in the world. Throw in the firewall that comes out of the box with OpenWrt White Russian, and suddenly the perimeter seems a lot more secure.
Open Source is as much a political movement as a technical one, and has a very large and tremendously passionate following around the world. The singular fact emerging from all this is that employment has simply not approached glory-day levels. Even as the Nasdaq has edged up 15% in recent months, it languishes far, far from its late 90s peak.
Red Hat Inc., a Raleigh, N.C.-based open-source software maker, reports fourth-quarter earnings on Tuesday, March 28, after the market close. The following is a summary of key developments and analyst opinion related to the period.
I had email this morning from someone using "chown" to fix up permissions on a directory. He had discovered "-R" in the man page but had run into a small problem.
I have always been a great fan of Vim editor. The very same versatile editor created and maintained by Bram Moolenaar. Mr Moolenaar has just been hired by Google and will start working for the search giant in Zurich.
Debian suits perfectly for use as a gateway for computers on your LAN. However once bandwidth usage grows it could be handy to just add another internet uplink to your gateway. Debian does not cater for this out of the box so this document describes how to setup your debian gateway for multiple uplinks.
Due to the current bandwidth limit of 10 GB/mo, as you might have noticed, the Béranger plays GNOME with SuSE site is temporarily blocked/suspended, probably until 04/01.
Temporarily, the updated contents can be accessed on my personal PC: http://18.104.22.168/beranger/index.php
One of the biggest issues people have with Mozilla/Firefox extensions (besides security vulnerabilities) is the required version field that indicates which versions of Mozilla/Firefox that particular extension will run on.
Ever since my first Linux install 10 years ago, I have been hooked on the command line. The Bourne Again Shell (BASH) has been my first choice for moving or copying files, writing text, browsing through my home folder, and lately, even for reading email. When I realized I was depending on graphical players to listen to my MP3 collection, I searched for a command-line MP3 player -- and found mp3blaster.
Passwords are, without a doubt, the perferred method of online security by online blogs, portals, e-commerce sites and just about anything else. For the most part, this is a good system. But, like all security systems, there is a point of possible disclosure, and it lies with you, the password creator, manager and holder. There are tricks to managing passwords, and free software programs to make managing passwords simple and I’ll show you some of them, right now...
It was three decades ago when a pair of prank-loving college dropouts, who also shared an interest in electronics, created computer circuit boards in a Cupertino garage, named the product Apple I and sold it to a local computer store.

Sometimes, especially if you have switched from some another GNU/Linux distribution to Debian GNU/Linux, your will have one major problem: you are missing some software available in your previous distribution. That is were Debian unofficial repositories can help you.
Over the years I have learned how to roll my own firewall script and call it from /etc directory. Of course, my firewall is only INPUT based, instead of INPUT and OUTPUT based, but I find that building an INPUT/OUTPUT based firewall is tremendously difficult and not really all that necessary if you use good download practices on your Linux server or PC and/or if you're already behind a NAT router (such as a home-based DSL or cable router or wireless router) or other firewall.
While it's always been an exemplary mail client, Mozilla Thunderbird has always desperately lacked one vital component - an integrated calendar. But finally there is hope for us ardent Thunderbird supporters. It's called Lightning, a new-born integrated calendar currently in version 0.1.
E-mail is a killer application. Your organization can become immobilized when messages dont flow. One way to break this never-ending routine is to go the Linux route for e-mail and calendaring.
Novell used its BrainShare conference last week to elaborate on its product migration path to Linux, and included an assurance to customers that it will support NetWare well into the next decade. The annual event featured a series of product announcements, including a preview of a new edition of Open Enterprise Server (OES), expected to ship in June 2007. Another new offering is Version 10 of the SuSE Linux Enterprise Server.
