Ok, as you know if you have read any of my other posts about network gaming I am going to buy a router and an old computer. Now I would like to know how protected each box is. From my mandrake Linux box how would I go about connecting to my winXP box and test it. Also lol if I could connect to my Linux box from my XP box (I feel like someone is going to whip something at me for typing that lol.) I want both to be locked down so no one can get in.. Now if some l33t h4x0r lol ahahah were to get in my system how would I go about trying to see where he came from or see any holes or back doors on my network of two computers???
I most likely will be running firewalls and Norton on both comps..........any ideas
