  1. I just deployed a proxmox cluster at a well known university. I had been using it since 1.8 when I saw the episode on Hak5. I must say that proxmox 2.0 is a huge improvement over 1.9. Right now I share out the VM directory via NFS over a bonded gig connection, yielding 220 MB/s. Does anyone else use Proxmox in their business? I would love to hear everyone elses experience with it. Cheers, Phil
  2. Check the logs for your samba server. See if you can find any connection that isn't 'normal'. Just guessing isn't going to get you anywhere and always remember that just because a student said he can get access to sensative files doesn't mean he/she actually did. It would be nice if you knew the exact time or at least what day the student accessed the shares, that would give you a smaller range in which to look for the access. Because if the share is misconfigured and he accessed it with his account, his account would still show up in the access logs... I think. Aside: You can't always rule out access to the command line just because you blocked access to it. Back when I was in high school they used AD for authentication and deep freeze. I was able to gain local admin on any machine by running a .bat file from within a .zip. 1.) create a txt file with the following. @echo off command.com 2.) save it as mycmd.bat 3.) create a zip file and copy mycmd.bat into the zip file 4.) open the zip file and run mycmd.bat 5.) you should now have a command prompt at C:\Windows\system32 6.) run: 'control userpasswords2' 7.) you can now change the password of any admin account, along with creating a new account for your self. This account survives a reboot. 8.) reboot and login as admin. This is what you get when your networking teacher doesn't teach anything. Bored students who want to have a little fun.
  3. Its nice to see Matt working on a podcast again. I think the idea is pretty good if they can get the community behind it. I will definitely follow his show closely. Heck, I might even submit something. :) Honestly, I think they should try to leverage the Hak5 community. And as Matt said in the first episode they should focus on more complex topics. I know Matt's expertise in the IT field, vmware and such, was of great interest to me while he was on Hak5.
  4. Ill look into it thanks. It seems though for right now Ill stick to writing scripts that will check automatically.
  5. Does anyone know of a website or tool that will monitor when the new version of software X (i.e. flash, reader, firefox, chrome) comes out and then notifies you? I am specifically looking for the mac versions of software X Thanks, Phil
  6. Thanks for all the replies. I think I will be sticking to OpenLDAP.
  7. Because i was testing this in a VM with only one disk. But yeah I would assume this tool would work as long as it doesn't unmount the drive that the OS is install on.
  8. Lol nope. heres what I did: 1. Fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04. 2. apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade && apt-get autoremove 3. apt-get install ubiquity 4. partman -> this looked like it was going to launch the partitioner but it ended up quitting. 5. dropped to root and ran it again. It actually launched and asked if it should unmount the partitions that are in use. I didnt continue any further because I assume that as soon as I unmount the OS partition which would therefore break partman because it was just running off of said partition. 6. Selected no to NOT unmount used partitions. 7. Here it gets tricky, the utility thinks its still part of the installer so it will ask you to auto partition your disk. 8. select manual, and heres what happened:
  9. If you could could start from scratch how would you implement authentication with user profile folders on a network that needs to support linux (70%), mac (29%), and windows (1%) pcs. I was thinking about starting with an LDAP master and having to slave nodes (one using open directory and the other active directory) to be able to take advantage of some management features for mac and windows. - Is this worth doing? Assuming you would choose LDAP, I have found the setup on linux to be a bit confusing, having not worked with LDAP at all. - Would you know where I could find some good documentation on LDAP? (sites or books) - Are some automated installers, that will walk you through a basic setup? - Do you know of any good management tools to use? mac or linux preferred. As far as roaming profile or h:drives are concerned. I'm not sure how I would want to implement those. It would be nice to be able to login to any linux box and get the desktop just how you like it, same with the Mac. But I don't mind just mounting a central storage location to the users /home/$profile directory. So at least they will always have access to their files. 95% of the macs are self administered at this point anyways. - Thoughts? Does anyone have any experience/knowledge on migrating NIS to LDAP? If so do you have any tips? I know darren says eff ldap? Would you recommend anything else? I was considering open directory, but until I can run it in ESXi without hacking the crap out of it, I will need to stick to something that I can actually rack mount. ;) Thank you in advance, I appreciate any incite you would be able to give me!

  10. Thanks for the link, ill have to look into installing it. Im sure 'apt-get install partman' wont work.
  11. Yeah thats what im talking about. Any way to use it after ubuntu server has been installed?
  12. Does anyone know if its possible to use the disk partitioning tool from the ubuntu server installer after you have installed ubuntu server? Obviously I would want to use it from the command line. I figure you can since 'tasksel' works.
  13. check out this thread: http://www.hak5.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=17712
  14. Thanks for the link. Looks good!
  15. Hey guys, I have an Ubuntu box that is connected to 2 different networks thru wlan0 and eth0. I was looking for a way to automatically forward a specific port thru wlan0. eth0 ( ) / linux_box -> \ wlan0 ( ) port x goes thru here. (i.e. port 80) I googled the subject and found you need to use IP tables. I found ( http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=159661 and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo ) but I still don't quite understand these commands. I was wondering if someone would be able to give me a template for what I need and/or point me in the right direction if iptables is not the way to go. thank you in advance, Phil
  16. Digip, for me it was that it had multiple NICs and processor already built in. The board you found was cheaper, but I would still need a processor and a few extra NICs. Also, I am always hesitant in buying an open box item, though i just bought my motherboard off ebay, so to each his own. ;) Maybe your route would have been cheaper, oh well too late now.
  17. I thought I would check back in here and tell you guys what I ended up going with. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=400053320685&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_2854wt_1141 I figured this solution, though not the most cost effective, was definitely the most fun. I already had a flash card that plugs into IDE and a 1U power supply. Anyways this should be fun to setup, and it will let me use any spare wireless routers, to extend my wireless network. Just ordered it so I will come back, once i get it setup to let you guys know how it goes. Cheers, Phil
  18. Thanks, Infiltrator, however I was looking for a converter that would still output 5.1 surround to my Logitech 5.1 speakers. Thanks for the recommendation anyways though, Phil
  19. Nope, and google is your friend.
  20. Hey guys just though anyone might know how to get optical audio from my apple tv 2 to Logitech G51 speakers (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3304945) This is what I have found so far: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812232028 Anyone know if this needs to be plugged into the computer? Or can i just buy one of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812339162 and it would supply the power. Thank you in advance, Phil
  21. Thanks for all the responses guys, I will defiantly look into all your suggestions. I wish I could run a computer 24/7 as my router but obviously that would be a bit expensive. Thanks again! Phil
  22. Hey guys just thought you guys might have a good experiences with some off the shelf routers. I am currently in the market for a new on. My current one is the Linksys WRT54GL. I love it! Installed tomato and it runs great, except that it is still 10/100. I am looking for a new router with 10/100/1000 on all ports, or at least the LAN ports, the ability to install ddwrt, tomato, openwrt or similar and if possible wireless N. I am currently looking at these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833704038 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833124387 - for the linksys one, I heard from a friend that when he installed ddwrt on it, it didnt run very well, so I am really liking the TP-LINK better especially because its about half the price. Thoughts? Cheers! Phil
  23. Yeah I missed them too. I would totally buy some to add to my collection of beer and shot glasses. Also ones that are laser etched would look bad ass. What about a Hak5 beer glass that has the hak5 logo etched on the bottom of the glass, kinda like the Sam Adams glass.
  24. you guys wouldn't happen to know how to open IP protocol 47 in DDWRT?
