Rhel 6 Vs. Ubuntu 10.10 For Wireless Hacking Tool ?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm in the process of building a Linux server using spare desktop (HP dc 7700p PC with USB wireless adapter) and of course it will be used as the wireless security training exercise so I just wondering if Ubuntu or RHEL is suitable for me to learn ?

BackTrack Linux is too hard to use and doesn't automatically detect the USB wireless network card usually.

but I wonder if the tool aircrack can be installed on the RHEL or Ubuntu easily ?

previously I have Backtrack 4 but the wireless LAN install is so hard :-|

It can be installed on any linux distro, I think ubuntu even has a package for it.

I'd go with a distro that you know and then install on top of that rather than going the other way round.

Any my personal preference, just to start a distro flame war, Arch linux.

For network pen-testing I use Backtrack 4.

For normal desktop usage, I use both Windows/Ubuntu.

I find Ubuntu very user friendly compared to other distros.

If you want to learn Linux, Ubuntu would be a good starting place.
