Got an old box lying around. Not hooked up to anything at the moment but it should work well enough.

200 mhz

256 RAM

2 gig hard drive.

58 mps wireless nic || 10/100 wired nic

Cons:

My connection is off an unstable cable router that is shared with the rest of the family.

Still abit of a linux newb so there's a good chance I'd mess something up.

Never wargamed before so.... yeah, double the newb troubles.

Anyone got a link about KoH Wargaming? Google turned up nothing useful.

I've considered donating a box for something like this. I don't really care if someone roots me and does something lame.

I have two old Pentiums and a Mac available for use.

all you need to do is install linux with some services and allow access to it

here is a nice site: http://www.roothack.org/

and this I quoted from someone else:

okay, guys, if you're having trouble with q&a about the setup of roothack...you're going to get embarrased when you actually get there, the #1 thing you have to be able to do is research on your own.

ALL of your questions are answered ON the site itself either explicitly or from the information provided (ie. the whitepapaers - which if you're serious about doing this, you'll want to read).

a "wargame" is generally a free-for-all where individuals or teams all attempt to gain root through a series of levels on the same box(set of boxes); in king-of-the-hill fashion: once you have root, the goal is then to keep root (because you will have others trying to knock you off). a "rootwar" is typically putting teams against each other where rooting the other(s) is the offensive objective while protecting yourself is the defensive goal (this is the game format that made roothack famous, but eventually it became a science and the same game over and over and over...same outcome, same failures, same whitepaper, different author(s)). they have 7 hosts, and afact, no less than 3 (and on average 4) have ever participated in a rootwar.

that said, regardless of your capability this is an ideal place to learn. you'll take pokes, you'll get tortured, you will get worked over, but in the end everyone will want you to have fun and learn from the experience; keep a light objective being to get a feel for the game and the defensive end, and you'll walk away with a positive outlook and ready to play again. use the wargames as preparation; if you aren't researching at least 1-2 hours a day on your own, concerning a specific issue/topic, then you need to start. if you can't fine-tune google results, get someone to show you or fsck with it until you figure it out.

Owwh! I got a couple of boxes I could setup. I just got a new wireless router so it shouldn't be to hard. Except I dont know what OS people would want to be on the system? I saw some one mention linux. I could offer a shitty windows 98 box just for more selection?

I dont think Win98 would prove to be much of a challenge to own.

My vote is for a nix OS.

Well, a default Win98 box has less network services out of the box than a Linux or Windows NT/2k/XP system so I would imagine 98 would be harder to crack. Unless you have physical access, but any box is yours if you have unrestricted physical access. Also, if someone is using the 98 box you could SE them into using some sort of Trojan on their box. Correct me if you think I'm wrong or know of many good 98 remote exploits that don't require user involvement.

i think we should go with winxp or some version of nt to "keep it real." OR we could have a windows and a nux box or something cool like that.

Why not a multiple os box that the king can decide which system it would boot in. A couple of linux distros, unix, bsd, win98, nt, xp, etc. Hell the king could install new distros if he (or she) truly is the king (or queen).

I say someone just set something up. I would, but I dont think you guys would like my dialup speeds.

Whoever sets one up first we use it.

If there are multiple people that get it setup at the same time, we will vote on which one we use, voting should last no longer than a day.

sorry, but I'm bored and just wanted something to do. :)

I think we should have a few boxes, not just one...

Also mabey a semi-noobie box, that the better people should not be asses and let the noobies work on...

Someone set up a site, put up boxes on there, rival rootthisbox. How's that sound?

I might be able to set up a box soon. We could have different boxes on there, mine would be OpenBSD. Owning a windows box is no fun.

I have a spare box a cable connection and plenty of time. Unfortunatley I don't have much skill but if you guys would help me out I would be glad to set up a linux box with whatever services you suggest. ssh, telnet, ftp etc. put in the dmz on my router?

p.m me if you think that is acceptable or have any suggestions.

p.s it's a 700mhz amdk6 w/ 128megs of ram.

if you need help, PM me either here or AIM/MSN/etc. I'm more than willing to help.

NOTE TO ALL!!!!!!

If you set up a box for us to play on, DO NOT POST THE IP ON THE FORUMS.

It is much much wiser for us to PM the owner of the box for access. There are more people on the forums that just troll. This way the owner knows who's accessing the box.

just some advice ;)
