  1. token linux post; As far as 64 bit support goes linux has always been one step ahead. of course if your a gamer or dependent on windows apps that would be a bad idea.
  2. You still need permission to shut down the remote computer. shutdown -i is only really useful on domain computers.
  3. they do though, why is your router on a different subnet? if your mask is that could cause issues.
  4. a root usb port usually has about 500mWs (thats milli.... not mega) of power. most cd writers use about 300mWs of power. so theoretically there is enough power, but as discussed there are voltage issues. you could wire in a transformer, if you were in an uber hack kinda mood, but that would up the power requered and i doubt the end result would be all that portable. (also high power devices are not all that good for your laptop battery life)
  5. yeah use it as a switch/wireless access point. If your really bored you could set up a second subnet, but i cant see why you'd want that. All virgin media have given me is bandwidth shaping. ;(
  6. lol, like anyone cares about or fully understands IPv6. (honestly its easier to remember mac addresses). shouldn't it filter out network addresses like: 10.x.x.x 172.16.x.x 169.168.x.x and emphasize not that I'm bored or anything.
  7. ok so i read this topic http://hak5.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=9051 and decided to have a little play around. I discoverd that its easy to set up a media stream that constatly broadcasts. this is not all that bandwidth intensive, about 300k (upstream) per connection. i figure i'm good for abou 5 connections. example rtsp:\\ubertom.co.uk\video it also looks like servers can be linked. (can you see where i'm going with this?) so if a few of us got together we could create a 'ip tv' network and broadcast stuff online.
  8. oh that looks like fun, although i dont think i'd be any good at it.
  9. dig up the street and cut the power (when you friend isn't looking).
  10. I can't add anything helpful. But just to warn ppl, i have installed sp3 4 times (so far) on 3 different computers. 1 failed but caused no major problems and installed fine the next time i visited windows update. 1 seamed to suceed but now windows encounters a 'serious error' twice after every boot (other then the error messages their doesn't seem to be any problem) 2 installed fine with no issues at all that makes a 50% success rate so far..... and i cant acctually figure out what changes (if any) sp3 has made.
  11. yeah, thats a good idea. unless you want more then the max connections (i think its 5) else = 2003 (even 2000 sever) i've never even seen 2008 so i cant comment on that. probably best to stick with MS on this one goto 10 10 linux fanboy flame war I really dont think linux will be perticually easy to set up as a media server, in my experence linux isn't the best at handling audio/video. network services and supported application servers and it kicks ass, but multimedia... well it wouldn't be my first choice.
  12. Yeah. 'IP AddressShareName' make sure the ip address is the vpn one. errm but why are you using vpn for a direct link
  13. I read through 3 pages of posts but i still seam to be lacking information Where and when? has this been decided yet? i think i've gone blind i can't remember any of what i just read.
  14. hmm, getting into someone elses computer is wrong. you might want to google some random phrases, as penance phrases like 'booting linux into single user mode' 'john the ripper'
