  1. Nano vs. vi is like comparing notepad to the MVS editor. Now emacs vs. vi...there's a real debate. </sarcasm>
  2. If you plan on learning FreeBSD, I recommend you take a look at the FreeBSD Handbook. The handbook is an excellent resource for all things FreeBSD.
  3. You would be surprised how many brute force attempts you can log just by turning on an FTP or SSH service for a day. There are billions of zombie computers that spend all their scripted lives scanning IP ranges and when they find something interesting, the try to log in. The humorous part is how many of these will try to log into *nix SSH using the username Administrator, Admin, God, Mary, etc. If you do not have any services running, the best thing to do would be to block/drop incoming connections that are not part of already established sessions (ie: requested connections, as in a webpage you want to view). Most standard firewalls have this capability, although the language used to describe it will vary.
  4. We have just enabled HTTP hosting. More information can be found on the site: http://theowned.net/?q=node/10
  5. A nice thing about Ubuntu 10.04 is it is a Long Term Support release, which will receive updates for 2 years if I remember correctly. This is great on a desktop since you won't have to upgrade for a while. Although if you want newer software next year, you'll have to upgrade anyway. As far as which is better, they both have their own strengths and weaknesses. They are both similar systems and neither is inherently better than the other. Use whichever one you like better.
  6. Scytheon3, the problem is that the tutorial you are looking at is wrong. Main should not be declared as void, and doing so on modern compilers that adhere to C++ standards will cause the errors you encountered. In C++, main should be declared as an int function, not a void function. For reasons why, please read the following articles on C++ standards: http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartf...p;id=1043284376 http://users.aber.ac.uk/auj/voidmain.shtml For a better (correct) tutorial, check out: http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/
  7. Right now we do not. We also do not offer free mail access. These services will most likely be added in the future, but we do not want to offer more services than we can reliably manage.
  8. 1) Its a remote shell, I expect a wide variety of uses. Learning, scripting/programming, IRC, remote storage (light), tunneling, etc. 2) Roughly 100MB per user. This is a loose restriction and we will allow more space be used as long as its not abused. 3) Yes, we provide several compilers as well as some script interpreters.
  9. DarkBlueBox, I may be writing a guide based off of what I did to build this. That was one of the original ideas behind the project. :)
  10. Originally posted as an idea here, I am pleased to announce the opening on The Owned Networks, a free unix shell service. Check it out, let me know what you think: http://theowned.net/
  11. I've got the initial server up and running now. Still need to run some tests and setup the portal, but the service should be online soon.
  12. Casper, I am in the process of building a free shell host that will support this. Checkout theowned.net soon for more details.
  13. Breaking into a system in order to prove that it isn't secure is not that different from the way the Mafia operated/operates. This is the wrong kind of mentality. The best course of action is to contact someone holding an appropriate position at the company/business and inform them of the problem. If they do not take any action to 'fix' the problem, then it is out of your hands and should be left alone.
  14. This is the stupidest thing I have ever read. This way of thinking is why the term "hacker" has evolved to mean "computer criminal."
  15. Yes. Finals are over as of last week, so I have a bit of spare time now. I plan on setting up the initial site and server this week. I'll post back with more details once I have something up and running.
