  1. Good call, I couldn't explain how to send 100's of emails on gmail or yahoo. I overspeculated too swiftly. Ya got me. Anyways, I want something besides mailman, is there something else you could suggest that I don't have to compile? Nevermind, I see the options are limited. I'm not paying for shit. Mailman sounds cool and all, but the guy that needs this functionality is your average user, who runs a windows os.
  2. Thanks for the acronym. I found that both yahoo and gmail have these features. Thank you, mirrorshades.
  3. I am aware there are services which provide a way to anonymously forward an email without disclosing the IP of the sender. That said, here's my problem. I know a guy who runs a head shop. He has a mailing list with about 200 email addresses. He wants to be able to send email to all of these addresses simultaneously without disclosing any of the additional forward addresses(to the receiver) in this instance. So he wants someone to receive these emails without being able to see who else is on the mailing list and who else the same piece of email was forwarded to. Google didn't yield anything besides the type of services mentioned in the beginning of this post. He is most likely using a web-based interface(he's got comcast), I dunno for sure though. Any help is appreciated.
  4. I found something useful on an ettercap tutorial page. It's called an "SSH downgrade attack." The concept is to force an established SSH1 session between the server and client. Sounds like a solution, I hope it helps you IronGeek.
  5. First, as a command-line junkie I would like to know what I'm doing underneath Ubuntu's front-end/partitioner. Second, I'm planning on using 9.5gb max for Total disk usage. If space is a problem then I can always use Xubuntu(Ubuntu's smaller brother based on xfce) however I don't think space will be a problem since the laptop will be used for web-browsing and maybe some programming utilities. btw thanks rightcoast for the layout.
  6. I am familiar with the programs for use in partitioning however I need help with the filesystem scheme, I need to know how many partitions to make, what kind of partition, which one needs to be to bootable and how big to make each one. I'm planning on using 9.5gb max. Can somebody help me with the layout?
  7. So I got this little Sony laptop(pcg-sr17) it came with a ten-gig drive however, when I tried to install linux I got an error during the formatting/partitioning phase. Dissappointed, I threw in my windows 2000 install disk which would attempt to format to 54% and then refused to go another percentage higher. So instinctively, I just made a partition that was surely less than 54% of the drive and it worked. Now I want to get rid of win2000 and install ubuntu, but I dont know how to setup the partitioning in the same manner, can somebody guide me through the same process in respect to the linux file-system?
  8. Do you have an active cordless-phone near you? Cordless phones as well as wireless routers use the same frequency(around 2.4ghz) to carry their signals. Everytime that the phone rings the air will get clouded by the signal, making your wireless router's signal shitty by interfering, even more so than other conventional electronic devices. It depends on how close the phone(or the charger) is to you(wireless client) or the router(wireless server). I used to lose my IP/signal every time the phone rang so I unplugged the bitch.
  9. Gnome-network-manager couldn't authenticate anything but wep for me. I'm using a Proxim-Orinoco card with the agere/lucent chipset, which means that maybe there are no linux drivers for the wpa functions of this card. I know that the card supports WPA-type authentication because I have done it under win32. Every time I use wpa_supplicant to authenticate under ubuntu it says function not supported/operation not supported that's how I know that my card will not do wpa under the current drivers.
  10. yea specially crafted packets, not just tcp but in general. More specifically protocol encapsulation.
  11. I was on and I'm taking it315-advanced java programming so this one struck me pretty quickly. The site, is a nice search engine for looking through source code for keywords. This is particularly useful when you are looking up how to use a certain class-function, how to use threads properly, etc. The site plans to include more languages in the future. I found a pretty neat site through google called It searches through actual programming books, through the example-code. Anyone know of any other good sites for this already in existence?
  12. I don't know for sure but I would try adding a line: pap=$value or PAP=$value just to be sure. Just keep in mind that it might conflict with others values that exist in the block.
  13. double-post, sry.
  14. Other ppl have had the same problem and their wpa_supplicant.conf looks like this: network={ ssid="ssid" scan_ssid=1 key_mgmt=WPA-EAP pairwise=TKIP group=TKIP eap=TTLS identity="identity" password="password" ca_cert="/etc/cert/ca_cert.cer" client_cert="/etc/cert/client_cert.cer" } If it doesn't work the first time, try swapping the certs. You said that something tells you that the authentication failed. If that is the case it should tell you that you can't use TKIP for EAS authentication(*or whatever pairwise/group setting you are using) and that you might need to install a package that will enable this. If it was me I would try to find something through Synaptic, give google a few sets of keywords, and if that doesn't work I would say that your intel-based card can't perform that sort of authentication with the supported drivers.
  15. On your file-system there is an example wpa_supplicant.conf located at -> /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/examples/wpa_supplicant.conf.gz. This file demonstrates almost every type of authentication setup for wpa_supplicant, so go through the file looking for a matching example for your situation, and tweak it. When you're done, make sure that the wpa_supplicant.conf file is under /etc and then logout, login & check for authentication success.
