Oh. At home I have 11 computers: 2 sparcs, 2 macs, 8 pcs (mix of PIVs,
AMDs, and C3s). They run *nix OSes (SuSE, Fedora, FreeBSD, Solaris, Mac
OS X, Tenon) and of course Winows XP/2K3. I don't bother with older
OSes, except for experimentation, e.g. learning how older OSes are
better supported by UNIX than Windows for both performance and security.
Between computers, I want to have interoperability between them (print,
file share, X, remoting, rtools/telnet/ftp). For insecure solutions, I
was interesting in playing with SSL, SSH, Kerberos, and IPSec. Also,
looking into secure single sign-on facility.
However, I am far from getting the experiments off the ground. I am
just barely above getting the darn things to work, with drivers, wi-fi,
bluetooth, etc. Many companies still uncooperative with open source
communities, a matter I hope to help proactively.
In the mean time, I'll get a handle on SSH facilities (as well as
getting hardware to work).
Oh, lastly, Cygwin is cool. I'm interested in both cygwin and
non-cygwin (mingw) solutions for both client/server. I tried all the
client tools, both putty and ssh, both work well. Never knew that sshd
was working so well. :->
Wish there was a way though to redirect the Windows desktop as a X
