Which determined that (once ports 22 & 5900 were removed from the equasion) whatever issues remote sites were having from opening Word Documents that originated from this facility, nothing within the document was trying to authenticate back to this office.
I love troubleshooting, this is true - but I also love using my tools to swat away annoying amature suggestions.
With great power comes great responsibility.
That responsibility is now my burden alone to bear.
So I have 5 IP addresses, and I want to assign three of them to three different boxes. I want to be able to run HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, VNC, on all them if I wanted to, and have them connect via DNS entries for each. I want to open gaming ports to my XP box, which will NOT have an externally accessible IP. I don't know how to go about any of this, but with a little persistence, and a lot of time, I'm sure I will arise the victor.
Fun times ahead.
My gallery is on my Solaris box - as well as a backup of most of my scores. The gallery runs over the web & uses MySQL. The box is pretty secure, not running any errant services or open ports. I can't see myself using this box for much of anything else, outside of Solaris-specific tasks. It has mirrored drives, an UltraSPARC-IIi 440MHz RISC chip and 1GB of RAM. I'll want to run http/https & ssh on this one.
My primary workstation is my OSX box, a mac mini OC'd to the gills. Don't know that I will be running HTTP from this box, but want to be able to if I so choose. VNC & ssh at a minimum.
My firewall will be my slackware box. It's a 1.6GHz P4 w/768MB of RAM and two identical drives I don't know how to mirror yet in linux. The kernel wouldn't see the hardward IDE-RAID card they were previously attached to. I want to be able to run ssh and http on this box. As this is my firewall, I don't yet know how that works, one of those things I have to figure out as I go along I suppose.
In other news, somebritinmass has joined us on lj! He was very busy today, so it's unlikely we'll hear from him anytime soon. And I'm sure once he and celtmanx go head-to-head we'll all see the fireworks. Let the games begin!
