  1. The only way to do it in windows is to set up routing on that PC. Unless you are running windows server 2003 on your box there isn't a built in function to do it so you need to find routing software to do it for you. Search sourceforge and google routing software.
  2. Yeah, reinstall the OS from scratch and make sure you install the newest chipset drivers first thing.
  3. A computer connected to a network has to have a hostname so you will never be without one. The second thing is on windows there are always certain users set up within the system that cannot be deleted such as "administrator". If the administrator account doesn't have a password then you can use that, or you need to get the password for that account. There is also a "user" account and a "guest" account. They don't have very many rights so you probably won't be able to access anything besides "shared documents" on that box unless you have set up the security differently. The "guest" account is also disabled by default in XP FYI.
  4. It might be more cost effective if you get into grid computing instead of doing a cluster. Look up Globus and Alchemi. Basically it is a way to make a "super computer" out of a bunch of different computers that aren't in the same location. Think bot network, only legitimate.
  5. Yeah, you need to make sure you have the newest ones. Nothing looks out of wack with the current devices you listed meaning there isn't anything blocking the drivers being loaded. Sometimes if you have drivers for another device of the same type installed the other drivers will fail but won't tell you. Make sure you have the newest drivers loaded and then do a scan for changed hardware in the device manager and see if it picks anything up.
  6. Look for client list in your administration panel of your AP and that will give you the list.
  7. Can anybody tell me how will I get the tools out of backtrack and install it in Ubuntu? well you're not actually getting the tools OUT OF backtrack, just writing down the tools that you like. Then you APT-GET those applications into your Ubuntu install. Google APT-GET and you will get this manual: which explains the tools and how it works. Hope that helps.
  8. Just looked at that feature isn't in Vista Premium. You probably have to have Business or Ultimate to do it, if even that. They might have only put routing in Longhorn Server (Windows Server 2008). Sorry pal.
  9. INSERT: It's another LiveCD that will fit on a business card cd. I carry one in my wallet at it works great and has tons and tons of features without all the bloat. Uses flux box WM.
  10. You have to be able to set up routing on that machine. I have Vista myself but I haven't played with that functionality, my guess is that they left it out and you have to get ultimate for that feature. If you go into the windows components in the software section of the control panel you can look around for the routing functions. I am not sitting at my Vista PC at the moment (in the shitter on my laptop) but when I get out I will take a peek and give you the correct instructions on how to install the feature or at least tell you if it is possible with system functions. If not then you are going to have to get a third party product and I don't really have any suggestions for that. Just google for routing software and it should turn up something on sourceforge. I will get that information to you in a minute.
  11. If you didn't put XP on a separate partition then just go into the C:\{installation directory} and delete that. It asks you where you want to install the XP files and it doesn't place system assemblies in any other location except that directory. You will have to modify boot.ini whether you are deleting a partition or a directory either way because you are doing in manually. Make sure when you install a *nix OS on top of your XP that you are installing GRUB with it. Obviously you are new to dual booting or you would have known this. LILO is ok but can get tricky when configuring if your not 100% sure of what you are doing so stick with GRUB for the time being. Also, install Ubuntu or something similar then just APT-GET all the tools from backtrack that you want. Backtrack is a little behind and their install to HDD function isn't quite up to par so by installing a different distro you aren't limited to what backtrack has to offer and you also get the benefit of using a distro that has a good development record (just my two cents).
  12. Yes. There are two ways to approach it. As a stand alone setup with a router, like a WRT54G Linksys wireless routerand flash it with dd-wrt or openwrt (both Linux variations) which would support wireless applications. Or just get any old wireless router and run Wireshark while connected to it. The trick would be to get people to connect to your AP. Or you can just get Wireshark and connect to another open AP (wait for it... wait for it... as long as you have the owners permission... of course). -un Wireshark is the way to go. You have to set it up to sniff wireless traffic (that information is available in the docs) and after that you can pick up the traffic just as you would connected to a normal LAN.
  13. What version of windows did you install?
  14. Anyone in the Toledo Ohio area interested in having a meeting around? I will start one up if there is at least 2 more people that will drive to Fremont for it.
  15. Ok, one more shot. Any takers?
  16. We are Borg. Resistance is futile ! :yoink: :cavalry: :flamethrow: What does this even mean? Original Author: Although some of the members in this forum are a bit childish and may mean to do harm, most of us are well respected individuals who offer nothing but help and information in the areas listed in the forums. I hope that you have not gained an ill favored view upon us or our community because of this n00bish act of stupidity. As StankDawg said, we do not condone this and the moderating team will do what they can to try to help you.
  17. Once again, go with slast. It is lightweight, no bulk.
  18. Agreed. If you are wanting to just play with asterisk before setting up a whole box I would suggest downloading Slast. It is a live CD light weight distro with slast already loaded. If you are having any problems setting things up you should talk to droops. You can jump into the #infonomicon channel on and probably find him in there.
  19. Hey, keep the flaming out of here please. make is a function used in Linux. If you don't know about make you should download a livecd version of a distro and play around with the function. Try backtrack linux for a starter since you are interested in the security tools. Also you may want to see if metasploit has this exploit in it's repository. It will give you a more "user friendly" front end to understand what the vulderability is actually doing. You can use the files that you downloaded and try and see how the exploit was coded and obviously you are using windows so you may want to rewrite it and see where you get.
  20. Regardless of whether you decide to do multiple encryption passes or whatever make sure that you have good keys because no matter what encryption you use, if you have weak keys it will mean shit. You can encrypt things as many times as you want but if you plan on sharing that data then just remember that not only will it be really hard to decrypt it will also be super complicated and could become a pain in the ass to get the data back. Make sure you have good, solid keys, and you have good key management and remember what key goes where in the sequence.
  21. C++

    I have had opposite experiance. I would suggest learning C++ and forget about C all together. C++ handles certain things differently than C and when you learn C first you will get even more confused when you reach the inconsistancies. Even though C++ is complicated you will savee yourself a ton of headaches, and C++ can do everything C can. And like ohm said if you want to code on win systems go with C# because it will help you get used to the syntax formatting and also teach you how to use type-safe code which C++ does not require you to do. This means you avoid buffer overflows and all those nastys. It will also give you a good syntax foudation for learning C++, which is really the only difference between any programming language. So regardless of what you do choose make sure you understand the fundamental theory of progamming logic.
  22. It will usually say in the docs of the app on which port it uses or if you know what protocol the app uses it is a good bet that it uses the standard port for that protocol.
  23. is a very powerful language and is only limited by your skill as a programmer. I use 2.0 in my job every day and we have a very powerful and robust solution that we coded in hous to handle all aspects of our POS system. The program is thousands of lines of code andit is not lmited at all. If you use visual studio express for your development IDE it will handle all .dll dependancies for you so you don't have to worry about .dll hell. I would be more than happy to give you some example code or answer any questions you may have, just send me a PM.
  24. The best thing to do in any situation is to check
  25. Since I posted this last I have moved closer to Toledo and actually work there now so I am trying this one last time to get enough people together in the area to start up a BR419 group. If you are at all interested please post. Once there are at least 3 people willing to come every month then we will do the formal thing.
