  1. If someone hasn't already, it probably won't be long before something like this becomes the plot for a CSI case or something. Its like a cross between cellular and internet marketing terrorism. I hope you get the problems with the phone worked out.
  2. Why is AVG evil now?
  3. Thanks again for your help with my pc. I like what I've got now. :)

  4. Dunno the story of how you got it...but it might be easier to try to get the password from someone else. Or post around on the site about it. I don't google dork much but maybe you could search for the file name and come up with other sites which have the same .rar and they might have the password.
  5. Just offer an alternative (gotta love the 'open source=more choice') there is also Tinc, which I came across for providing VPN tunnels between hacked/flashed wireless routers. see: <a href="" target="_blank"></a> Appears to be simpler to set up than OpenVPN and less resource hungry. Currently clients/servers for Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, MacOS/X, Solaris, Windows 2000 and XP. [removed trailling comment as I didn't read the whole thread properly.... engage brain before talking!] Munge. o.O Tinc looks really cool.
  6. If I understand it correctly you want to look into either making a dropper or programming your own binder. I would go with the dropper.
  7. I guess I don't have anything to say here. McGrew, Ticom, and Kuiper more or less summed up my thoughts (and said them better than I could have).
  8. I'm not trying to hide anything from anyone. I simply don't want the guy 2 tables away to be sniffing my packets and see what I'm doing if I'm on a public network. And if you were trying to hide something or remain untraceable how you were describing, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to have the mentality that what you did is untraceable. I think thats where you would make your mistake.
  9. I would run the vpn server on my computer at home. At least if I understand correctly I can do that. I'll settle for less than 100% secure. I just don't want anyone sniffing my traffic.
  10. Whats the difference between using openvpn or using vnc? I know the difference between the two softwares, but which is preferable(and secure) for what I need? The only purpose I have for it would be when (if I get a laptop) I'm on a public network so that I can avoid anyone who might be sniffing the network.
  11. Thanks everyone. I think I got enough information about what I wanted to know.
  12. Yeah, I know it wouldn't. I was brainstorming about my neighbors and came up with the other question. How much would an average homemade antenna boost my signal? And while I'm on the topic of wireless networking, what is the average upload speed for uploading files at wireless hotspots? Edit: I want a laptop with wireless capabilities so bad. >_<
  13. I was mainly curious because I was trying to guess which of my neighbors could access my network and which couldn't. I checked the manual for my router and it said that the range was 91m indoors and 457m outdoors. That seems rather large to me, so I wanted to double check on the range and see for myself. I don't have a laptop so I can't go test it myself and I don't think my neighbors would be happy with my walking through their yards with my computer. I did get to use my roomies laptop a little bit earlier and I noticed that most networks at 80dBms were too far out of range for a constant signal. I was connected to my network at 54dBms just sitting on the front porch. I just thought it would be cool if there was a way to find the distance to the router you're connected to by using dBm. I didn't think about the all the variables you mentioned McGrew. That would make it hard. Forgive me if I sound stupid. I don't know much about wireless networking.
  14. Is there a way to tell how far away you are from a router via the signal distance? Like if you know the dBm?
  15. Why not just use Google?
