“vpnautoconnect is a daemon that allow you to reconnect automatically (at startup too) a vpn create with network manager.It can reconnect very quickly and monitor the bandwith, It works with pptp and openvpn connection.”
Don’t you hate when your VPN connection drops? do you worry about your privacy being leaked when your downloading a torrent?
This is a really great tool to help with that problem for linux users.
and it has a nice GUI and daemon to manage it which is perfect for new linux users trying to secure themselves online.
I always hear about tweaks to protect your digital activities, but haven't heard anything about your actual OS. Is there any list of available tweaks to do to your OS (Windows). Example, the ability to disable the event viewer? Don't know if that is safe?
well other then disabling automatic updates on certain apps. and just not having certain programs installed or using software that violates your privacy, as far as the actual operating system there are certain functions that collect data for Microsoft etc i really can’t think of anything in that regard other then switching to open source software or a new operating system like a linux distribution.
I asked earlier about the netgear wireless adapter. Your response.."there is alot of issues with wifi hardware on linux have you tried any debian based OS like tails or ubuntu?" I have tried tails and nothing. I even tried to install the software from the usb adapter onto tails. It looks like it sees my bluray drive but doesn't run from it. I admit, I'm completely new with Linux and only know how to install it and have it run by loading it up. How to do the wireless adapter set-up? :(
Here is a good tutorial for your device here. Try it, Linux at first can seem very intimidating, but with patience and lots of searching it can be very rewarding. Hope this helps.
Sorry if you get multiples. I'm not receiving confirmation that they went through. My internet connection is with a USB wireless adapter ( Netgear WNDA3100v2) on a different floor. I've been wanting to switch to a live USB OS and have tried to figure out how to get the wireless USB adapter to recognize the Linux system. Zero luck on my end or techno babble that is not for a beginner with Linux. Do you have any simple instructions on how to make this work?

PAC is a Perl/GTK replacement for SecureCRT/Putty/etc (linux ssh/telnet/gui) It provides a GUI to configure connections: users, passwords, EXPECT regular expressions, macros, etc.
It’s a very nice looking GUI and program to manage SSH connections,telnet remote desktops,FTP,SFTP,VNC and more. and it has keepass integration which i really like, so you can store your logins safely for your SSH tunnels and RDP connections :)
Today I realized that a lot of people who are new to securing themselves and new to Linux may not be up to par in setting up Tor in Ubuntu, for those of you who use ubuntu. This quick process is simple and even though simple we know how confusing it could be for newcomers to the Linux enviorment. Here is a step by step process in doing so, hope some of you find this useful and become more confident in installing 3rd party applications to secure yourself.16 notes
