5 Sep 2000 wannabe   » (Apprentice)

Hey, look at me, I'm an apprentice! :-) Thanks to acme for the certificate :-)

These days I'm studying for September exams, so there's not much to tell. Trying OpenBSD. Nice, though as I'm no security expert I'm sure I'm missing a lot of good things. For the moment, I'm still thinking if I should replace sendmail and put qmail or postfix. I use qmail in my linux box, and I like it; but I think that the way to learn to work with anything is trying to use it "as-is", and not making it a linux clone. And besides, the sendmail that comes with the distribution is audited, and qmail is not.

Another thing I'm planning to do is connect the Linux box to the OBSD thingy, but I've only got a serial cable :-) I tried to buy a NE2000 clone, but I don't live near any shop and also it seems that cards with BNC connector are not as easy to find as before. So, I'll buy the card after the exams and try to use PPP with the serial cable by now. I think that's better that SLIP, isn't it? :-m

Well, this' already too much for a first message. Logging out.
