Okay, okay... :)
Personally, I am going out to the street to beat the kid up and take his laptop for my collection. I'll probably take his car battery too since you can always use a spare.
Well. If there is a car you don't know parked outside your house with an antenna on the roof, and a nervous looking dweeb with a laptop inside we don't need to many other variables to solve for X. ...
I don't have a problem with this law actually. Of course it depends on what the network is; e.g. public hot spot offered by a shop or cafe.
If I park outside your house on the street and freeload...
Do you have enough in your budget for a firewall on you client gateway? It's going to be a lot easier to filter traffic per-subnet or per-gateway than on each individual host. Of course, it's up to...
Why not slap Solaris 10 x86 on there someplace too... :)

Realize that you are going to have to do this for TCP, UDP, 'and' ICMP.
In an examle provided by frostedegg, on Linux you can just tell the kernel via /proc to ignore ICMP.
But, if I am a...

Get BlueCoat proxy/content management hardware on your network. I know, folks probably think I am pushing it a bit hard these
Seriously, if you need to keep close tabs on what your...

Port 0 is a reserved port, you aren't 'supposed' to use it. But it is common practice
in UNIX socket programming to use port 0 as a way...

You'll have to forgive me LindaHewitt, i've had too many beers with dinner and am a little confused about what you are asking. :)
If you are looking for cost effective X86 server hardware, I would...

Check out the products from 'EdgeBlue'. They have some really nice products that won't kill your budget for the next two quarters.

I guess by now we are way OT... :) But this has turned into a semi-productive discussion in spite of itself.
Okay, I believe you when you say that there is an article in a magazine that says...

Yikes! It is amazing to me how ignorant PC/Non-Mac users can be about Apple. Instead of just guessing and speculating about what will happen, and pulling rumors out of the air and believing them, why...

First, let me thank you gore for telling us what you really think. :)
For me, this cuts to the chase on the whole question of 'secure' systems. Software and Computer Security are at odds with each...

The enterprise security topics that I am pretty hot on right now are Role Based Access Control (RBAC), and true privilege separation. Unfortunately both of these things have the same problem; they...

There has been a definite decline in the 'production' usage of OpenBSD. I think this is for two reasons. A) as you mentioned catch, the typical installation is on an enthusiasts machines; and many of...
What about computer/corporate espionage? Some unscrupulous companies out there will pay well for someone to
spy on their competitors... Dropping 5K on some unreleased exploits could just be a...
Couldn't agree more ...

environments I have worked in; it is relatively easy to focus a...
I can't believe anyone is running an IIS box without some kind of screen in front of it set up for reverse proxy...
Unless of course

You mentioned nmap... Have you tried something like 'nmap -sF -P0 -p 1-65550 -vvv -O <ip-address>' ?
There are lots of little ways to discover machines on a network, most of which require a good...

The list makes sense because those are the kinds of things that an externally facing Unix host is likely to be running. You don't see things like LDAP, NIS+, SMC and the like because only a Kamikaze...

Hardware firewalls are overrated. Our guys just spent the past 9 hours un-*****ing the network after a cisco pix HA pair **** the bed and then brought all interfaces online at the same time. Which by...

.... Actually, most OS's have little quirks or other uniqe things about the way they act when you try to build a connection on a closed TCP port. Add to this the implementation specific way that a...

You might also have a look at /etc/inputrc.

SuSE is a fantastic distro, and Sun is steadily falling behind the curve compared to Linux. For large installations I really prefer Sun hardware over PC's because of OpenBoot and LightsOut and the...
