DSL For Businesses

DSL is an abbreviation for Digital Subscriber Line. It is a high-speed connection that uses existing telephone wires for data transmission requiring a modem which can connect to your computer. So with DSL, businesses can link to the internet, obtain video and data, at a much faster speed than with any dial up connection.

Also unlike a dial up connection, DSL is always connected to the internet. No doubt, the cost is higher than a dial up connection but the amazing features make up for this. These features include VoIP (voice over internet protocol), integrated voice and data services, web hosting, video conferencing and company intranet facilities.

Voice Over Internet Protocol

This feature simply means the distribution of voice information using the internet. This has the power to send more than one telephone call at a time using the same connection, removing the need of extra telephone lines. Automatic redialing, caller ID, call forwarding and conference calling, are standard features on VoIP, without any extra charges unlike on a standard telephone connection. A business can save up lots of money with this feature.

Integrated Voice And Data Services On DSL

Internet access, Voice transmission and data transmission can be combined on a single line. This will not only save money but also create simplified bills and reduce the paperwork. Features included in this package are inward dialing which allows direct line phone numbers to be assigned to different employees, ‘line roll over’ which allows a phone call to be routed to another available line and also the feature to block caller ID on outgoing calls.

When To Say ‘No’ To Linux

You might have come across several posts regarding Open Source and Linux, Why should one chose Linux or stuff like that, but they all are pro-Linux. At the end of, almost, every post one gets to know that Linux might not be a viable choice for some users. Well, following list is going to answer your entire why questions:

Why Should Gamers Not Choose Linux

Here, we are not regarding the players of solitaire or geek-puzzle as gamers, instead who play tons of Action, Racing and MMORG. Let’s hope you are in and then Linux as solo OS in your system would be the last thing you want. Honestly, all the proprietary games we play are not even planning to head towards Linux platform.

When we use the term gaming, doesn’t matter how many emulators or workarounds you stumble upon, we mean playing games which are primarily designed for platforms. I wonder when will Linux developers decide to concentrate on this matter.

A Distinct Walk is Better Than pursuing Windows

It was good to see almost all distros migrating from command line to display oriented desktops. After that we expected them to get their own look, but we can see many distros mimicking windows and XP. Seriously, if you need XP you would know where to find it. Why should you use XP ditto Linux?

Desktop Problems Favors Not Choosing Linux

First thing a person would like to see on a display oriented desktop would be detection of good default setting.

How Hackers Use Google to Find Targets

Google hacks often make a glimpse on Slashdot, Digg, or StumbleUpon and some web admins know what to do when some don’t even have a clue. Well, here we quote some of the hacks which are commonly known.

You can try these out to check the security of your website or if you are looking forward to hack a site:

“My SQL error With Query”

This will get you specific query strings with specifics of the site’s database, for instance column, row and table name. Let’s see if some one is dumb enough to put his password and username in the query strings.

“supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource”

Another interesting SQL error which, sometimes, even pops out the architecture of server and the locality of sensitive files. For instance if you get this “/users/cwq00/base/web/system/dbwrappers/db.mysql_db.php on line 114″, you know what to do, right?

inurl:awstats file:txt

Webmasters use Awstats as utility for data importing. And some of them are foolish enough to keep a text copy so that you can find out about their traffic more than they would like you to know.

“This summary was generated by wwwstat”

Above is another great example of stat finder. But this one really comes handy on intranet system and associated servers.

buddylist.blt

You certainly don’t want someone to find about your buddy list on AOL, right? It must be very old though and it’s out of imagination why I still find these buddy lists.

When Should I Use a UNIX System?

Chatter about free UNIX systems, such as Linux, BSD and Open Solaris, seems to amplify every incoming month. However, if you haven’t experienced any one of them, you must be puzzled about all the controversies you get across. Honestly, the type affection these systems get hardly reaches any of their competitors.

Following list reflects triumphs of UNIX systems, and what makes them worthy of all the affection they get.

Free UNIX Systems Pride On The Security They Offer

Security is a best feature one can get for his operating system. Up to this mark, last thing one can expect from a UNIX system is a presence of security loophole. No vicious software, such as virus, Trojan, or worm, exists which can endanger UNIX system in wild.

UNIX systems have superlative fool-proof security. It encloses the idea of file permissions. Administrator, group and user require various permissions to write, read or eliminate each distinct file. This implies to any program in use – for example, all that a virus, downloaded through email, can do is corrupt your home directory.

Free UNIX Systems Are Built For General Public

Why a Person using free UNIX system never has to worry about licensing or not getting his system update because of piracy? That is because free UNIX systems, belonging to general public, are registered under GNU general public license or equivalence on BSD. Programmers can please themselves by playing around with these systems or fix something and then post the free patch for everybody.

UNIX system; First Mature OS

First UNIX OS was built at AT&T Bell lab even before the amplification of house hold computers. Everything, possible on computers, first happens on UNIX.
