You can access a Linux desktop using a browser.
Well Linux keeps pushing the limits of Possibility!!
My problem is, how can I control the BANDWIDTH given to a user
thru a leased Line at different rates. The scenario is like this, I
have a 128 kpbs leased line, from this 128 kbps leased line, I want to
give connections to users with a different BW, like 64 kbps for some and
128 kbps for others, how can I get this thing done. Hoping to have your
resononse and suggestions ASAP.

Well I dont think it wasn't possible. All you needed to
write is applet which knows VNC protocol or something
like that based on server. It can be possible even on
internet block and cramped NOC traffic very badly
A worm which exploits a (new?) vulnerability in SQL Server is bringing
the core routers to a grinding halt. The speed of the propagation can be
attributed to the attack method and simplicity of the code. The worm
sends a 376-byte UDP packet to port 1434 (i found 1433 also) of each
random target, each vulnerable system will immediately start propagating
Since UDP is connection-less, the worm is able to spread much more quickly
than those using your standard TCP-based attack vectors (no connect
Some random screen shots, a copy of the worm as a perl script, and a
disassembly (sorry, no comments) can be found online at:
The UDP D.O.S. attack: (Random snippets from logs)
PROTO=UDP SPT=1518 DPT=1434
PROTO=UDP SPT=1032 DPT=1434
PROTO=UDP SPT=1077 DPT=1434
PROTO=UDP SPT=4319 DPT=1434
Some News: http://news.zdnet.co.uk/story/0,,t269-s2099780,00.html
MS SQL listens on port 1434/udp so that clients can figure out which method
of communication to use (named pipes, tcp/ip et al)
there are two problems that yield ability to execute code remotely while
Right now, packet loss is running at roughly 95%.
Have any of you found a solution for the garbled text of Redhat
8.0. The ncurses library seems to be the problem - I am not sure though.
For those who do not use RH 8.0, the problem is as follows, the
display of most of the programs like ntsysv, cenetericq and various others
is not aligned properly on the screen, also the screen is not refereshed
when some changes are made and some new content is written above the old
content on the screen. This happens in the text mode (non-GUI) and in all
(xterm, konsole, etc) the terminal windows in the GUI as well.

The_Linuxer is of the opinion that
"but the problem is that ... no matter how big geeks are they in linux, most
are new to IRC"..."you should write a How-To on IRC & post it on the LUG".
So i wrote a howto. However, I don't want to clutter all your mailboxes, so
it's available here
This is *NOT* a tutorial/detailed HOWTO on using IRC. You can use google for
that. This is simply a document to help you get started on IRC if you are
unknown to it.
Read it and get started on your way to becomig an IRC-junkie :)

>huh? linux geeks who don't know IRC? what is this world coming to?
Well, that's my personal opinion which formed after talking to the few
Luggers who came to the #ILUG-Bom IRC Channel. By the way, I never saw you
on the # ... what happened to you ? ;-)
