OpenBSD Using OpenBSD
Post date: April 26, 2006, 10:04 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 24
Tutorial quote: Many people responded to the call for OpenBSD and OpenSSH donations by purchasing an OpenBSD CD set. Those CDs are beginning to arrive in the mail, and when they do, how are you going to use them? If you're a software enthusiast who has never used OpenBSD before, you might enjoy installing it by yourself and figuring it out as you go. If, however, you're looking for a more practical approach to using OpenBSD as a desktop or server operating system, here's a guide to get you started.
OpenBSD Rebuilding the OpenBSD kernel
Post date: April 24, 2005, 16:04 Category: System Views: 93
Tutorial quote: Users who want their OpenBSD machine to perform specific functions or need additional device drivers might want to customize their kernel. In other OS's, like some types of Linux, it is very popular to rebuild the kernel because the default is so bloated. For most users, the default OpenBSD kernel is sufficient; however, you should still apply kernel patches, which will require rebuilding and installing a fresh kernel.
OpenBSD Hardening OpenBSD Internet Servers
Post date: April 11, 2006, 18:04 Category: Security Views: 36
Tutorial quote: This tutorial on how-to harden or improve security on OpenBSD Internet servers includes sections that apply to any UNIX system. Hardening is making a computer more secure by removing unneeded functions, restricting access and tracking changes and processes. It was revised to cover OpenBSD 3.0 on Dec. 15, 2001 and includes an overview of the 2.9 to 3.0 changes. A new page on priorities ranks the value of the techniques presented here. Familiarity with UNIX system administration but not OpenBSD is assumed.
OpenBSD Apache - Serving up the Web
Post date: April 11, 2006, 18:04 Category: Network Views: 19
Tutorial quote: The Apache Web Server is installed as part of the OpenBSD base system. This guide will help you configure the web server: (Apache 1.3.12 is released with OpenBSD 2.7 and 1.3.9 with OpenBSD 2.6)

To see how configurable the Apache/OpenBSD combination is we also look at allowing administrators to remotely review the server's status, we setup the system so we allow users on our system to have their own personal web-space. Of course, for the security counscious you probably want to turn some of these things off after you get things up and running.
OpenBSD Failover Firewalls with OpenBSD and CARP
Post date: April 27, 2005, 22:04 Category: Network Views: 231
Tutorial quote: Firewalls are a required component in commercial and residential computer networks. For many installations, the firewall is a single point of failure between client systems and external resources. It can also become a liability when hardware or applications fail, leaving potential customers unable to reach your servers. A properly designed and executed failover configuration for your primary firewall will address many of these concerns. This article introduces a proven method for installing redundant stateful firewalls using native OpenBSD features.
OpenBSD Creating secure wireless access points with OpenBSD and OpenVPN
Post date: December 13, 2005, 13:12 Category: Network Views: 108
Tutorial quote: You know how insecure 802.11x wireless networks are. In this article we'll create an OpenBSD-based secure wireless access point that prevents unauthorized access and encrypts every packet using a VPN tunnel. OpenBSD is one of the most secure operating systems available, is easy to use, and includes almost everything you need for this project in the base installation.
Linux Linux Web Filtering in 7 steps
Post date: April 12, 2005, 14:04 Category: Network Views: 423
Tutorial quote: How to install a transparent Squid proxy server with real-time HTTP virus scanning on Mandrake 10.0 using DansGuardian and ClamAV?

People quickly and easily access volumes of research on the Internet and correspond with a mouse click. For more and more companies, content filtering is part of the large battle to combat all kinds of online threats, including hackers, worms and viruses. Linux content filtering allows administrators to configure and manage Internet access across the entire network and to block unwanted Web content like pornography, shopping Web sites, games and gambling.

This guide contains all the necessary information for installing and understanding the architectural layout of the implementation. It was written with the assumption that you understand how to install programs and have a basic understanding of Linux Mandrake. This includes installing Linux Mandrake and RPM packages, editing files, making directories, compiling software and understanding general UNIX commands. This guide doesn’t explain how to use or configure Squid, DansGuardian and ClamAV but information on where to obtain this information can be found in the “Additional information” section.
Unix+clones Using MySQL to benchmark OS performance
Post date: April 12, 2005, 03:04 Category: Benchmarks Views: 93
Tutorial quote: It seems to be an exciting time for *nix operating systems, with a number of them recently releasing new versions that bring the addition of expanded features and claims of improved performance. If you're using GNU/Linux, OpenBSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD, or Solaris as a database server, you've probably recently considered an upgrade or switch to another OS in that list due to marketing hype and hearsay. This article will show you how to benchmark operating system performance using MySQL on these OSes so you can find out for yourself if you're missing out. While this may not necessarily be indicative of overall system performance or overall database application performance, it will tell you specifically how well MySQL performs on your platform.

The following operating systems were used for the comparison testing:
- FreeBSD 4.11
- FreeBSD 5.3
- NetBSD 2.0
- Linux 2.6
- Linux 2.4
- Solaris 10 x86 (build 69)
- OpenBSD 3.6
Unix+clones Sharing photographs online
Post date: July 18, 2005, 18:07 Category: Software Views: 71
Tutorial quote: It is so convenient to take pictures on digital cameras that (it has been argued) we are all becoming better photographers: we take more pictures and therefore are able to choose only the best for printing and sharing. It is easy to experiment, see the results quickly, and share them with friends. The Internet makes sharing photographs very simple and a lot of fun.
