Preferred Solution: Came across this Free Open source VPN server software.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I thought it would be a good idea in keeping with the overall secure free try free/free source software? and sites & Good movies legal to for goal of this site to Good source sites for secure & legal free movies and free/free to try software? start a thread to give people a list of legal and secure sites for downloading free or dirt-cheap movies music and software games I believe this would helpful in terms of not just telling people not to visit support pirating websites but to also give them other alternatives so that there wouldn't be a temptation to go there anyway And also for people like me that Don't want to steal but also don't want to pay more than I have to Master list of sites for free dirt cheap movies music and free free to try software Music Open Music Archive LEGAL NOTICE Contains music with expired copyright according Good source sites for secure & legal free movies and free/free to try software? to UK copyright law which states that the copyright expires years after the author's death As such some of the music may be considered pirated in countries with longer copyright periods For example The longest copyright period I know of is Mexico years after the author's death INCOMPETECH This guy composes his own music and gives it away for free Movies and or TV Hulu Movies and tv free with ads or for cost of membership watchable without ads http www epixhd com Free for Dishnetwork users Netflix Not completely free but VERY low price Software WARNING As stated by Quietman Many free Software Sites contain ads or link to sites containing ads with misleading download links to potentially dangerous software Be sure to click the correct download link which is usually smaller than the false link and it's usually a good Idea to avoid clicking on links with the words Reccomended or Important next to the link Even if the correct download link is selected Potentially unwanted programs PUPs May be installed if you click through without opting out Bleeping Computer Cnet Download Wide variety of software including games Game demos video and audio players editors etc Cnet installs PUPS practically as a rule unless you opt out MajorGeeks SnapFiles FileHippo Also has a utility for keeping programs up to date A list of unsafe legally questionable for free sites would probably be helpful as well

I use this PDF creator:

Hi guys...
I'm doing a project for my company and am in the process of building weather logging instruments. Using something like Beagleboard or Pi I'm going to attach sensors, and then get the workshop to custom make cases for me.... My distro of preference is Debian, but I'd happily do a bit of groundwork to get these things going.
Anyone ever done anything like this? know a software ideal for it? I've been digging around a bit but only come up with free laboratory software that kind of fits my needs. the problem being is it (the software) measures too much too often and would make it high maintenance for recording/interpreting the data over a period of months...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:open source weather logging software?

And there I was thinking that you only had 'The Wet' and 'The Dry' in the Police State !
What sort of data are you trying to record ?  You say the software you have found 'measures too much, too often'. Is it not possible to change the sampling rate used by the software or can't you access the code ?  I did something roughly similar once a few years ago - it was necessary to get an output to change state once every 20 minutes or so and the 555 ic was the timer of choice. Components for it to clock at that sort of rate were unduly physically large and gave too high errors, so I finished up clocking it at something like 20kHz - a nice cheap small capacitor - and using a divide by ic to get the rate of output change I wanted. Just thoughts.

When rootkits are mentioned the things which come to mind are generally hackers, Trojans, even Sony BGM. Now you can add open source software to the list with the release of the first open source rootkit framework called Stoned.
A rootkit is a piece of software which, for nefarious purposes, aims to run undetected on your computer. It will hide itself from process listings and will seek to interfere with the ordinary running of your system to fulfil its own purposes.
A bootkit is a particular type of rootkit which kicks in when the computer boots and before any operating system has loaded. This can make it even more dangerous because it has full access to the system and cannot be removed by merely inspecting the operating system?s list of start-up services.

A:Create VPN and good Free VPN software (Server AND client)

First off, a vpn in just a virtual network connection, so it won't natively present you with a desktop or applications. It will get you remotely connected to the network, from there you will launch something else to connect to a desktop, either rdp, terminal services, etc.

Doing a VPN is natively built into sever 2012, so you won't need any software, free or otherwise to setup a.basic VPN.

DHS is a hobby project that has grown wildly in size, and started as a graphical interface for 7" USB monitors. The current version can handle any monitor size from 7" up to whatever, and the screen design will be adapted accordingly. Moreover, the layout is touchscreen compatible, so even on small monitors you can still easily control all functions.

So this site so far has been very good to me and just want to know if there is such a thing as a free internet site thats safe to upload free mp3 music? Limewire always seems to give me a virus or sumthing. Any thoughts?


A:good safe free music source for downloads (if any)

If you want to get free music that is copyright and that you should normally pay for, then the answer is no.Having said that, most record labels offer limited free downloads, such as this one.

Hey, recently me and my friends have been thinking about building a CSS server, and we were just wondering what you guys thought would be the best hardware setup in general, such as how much RAM, what speed for the components, dual core vs. quad, intel vs. AMD, what mobo, etc. Also, do i need to get specific server components, such as server memory, a server power supply, or a server motherboard? And last, do I want 2 physical cores, or just a dual core processor? Thanks!
p.s. Also, anyone know how to make a CSS server cracked?

I set up a Server for a production team that I work for online that deals with GUIs, Skins, Maps, etc with CS:S. I installed Mani Admin Plugin, left the server un-secure (long story), and then tested it. I logged in and experienced something that I wish I didn't. The lag was extreme, and I was scoring as high as 130 ping on my own server. I am on a router, although I wouldn't think that it would do that much to the server. Whenever I walk around, I get detained back constantly, and I can't run a server like this. Any help would be very appreciated. The server ip is .

My friend, who just so happens to be a member of the team reported that he couldn't log on, that it would say "Server Not Responding", along with any server that I would creat in-game (they also have mani setup).

Hi guys What free Antivirus software for servers What free anti-malware would NOT be a good idea Info My friend has purchased a Poweredge server to act as a fileserver for a private network not connected to the internet He uses laptops at the most to access files on the server However at some points he will update Windows Server Server ? Free Antivirus e.g. for Server Windows 2008 plus odd bits by temporaily hooking up to the Internet and obviously leave himself open Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008 to malware etc for a short time The cost Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008 of server Antivirus is very high and usually effective for workstations upwards and obviously he would appreciate keeping costs down Questions I would appreciate thoughts on ideas for avoiding a costly solution Also if he got Malware on it e g Rootkit or Delta would current Bleeping Computer tools e g Rkill RogueKiller etc still work on the server - or does it require another approach I am asking fior advice BEFORE he gets started while options are open Thanks in advance guys

A:Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008

The answer is fairly simple. Just read the details on the site -
Microsoft Security Essentials is available for small businesses with up to 10 PCs.
• Microsoft Security Essentials:
Microsoft updated it’s free Anti-Virus solution at the end of 2010 to support Windows 2008/R2.
This is easily one of the better free offerings as Microsoft has updated this solution to complete directly with some of the biggest solutions, such as Mcafee and Symantec paid versions.

When downloading, simply choose Windows Vista / Windows 7, as Microsoft has yet to update the website.

Hi Win7 64 pro
I have copied 2gb using Teracopy to a folder, it showed at least one where path not found.
It has no means of selecting that line and showing me the source file, I cant even copy out the address.

Its ok as along as i get OK in its test, else if I get a red warning it then doesn't offer a means of attempting that source file again. It also doesnt have a way of putting those to the top of the stack. You have to scroll through 2Gb of files to find them.

Then I managed to exit teracopy, now I havent a clue what files needs copying across.

I could do with a second prog to compare source and destination and repair any differences etc.

Any suggestions ?

I had hoped Terracopy would do this.


A:Free utility or inbuilt program to compare source & destination files

You can use the built-in RoboCopy and use it only to compare files and folders, NOT to copy anything. Start a command window (cmd.exe) and use this syntax:

robocopy "c:\tools" "c:\toolscopy" /E /L

c:\tools is the source
c:\toolscopy is the destination
/E will include subdirectories incl. empty ones
/L will only do a compare and not copy anything

I changed this in the source folder: one changed file, one new file, one new empty directory
The output from robocopy:

Newer 27 tempEMETfolder.txt
New File 26624 TestBlank.exe
New Dir 0 c:\tools\emptySubFolder\

IRC server had backdoor in source code for months.

The developers of the open source IRC server UnrealIRCd have had to report that the file servers of the project were compromised several months ago and the IRC servers code, Unreal3.2.8.1.tar.gz was replaced by a version with a backdoor. The backdoor allows anyone to execute commands on the server running UnrealIRCd, with the privileges of the user running the IRC daemon, even if the IRC server is a hub or requires passwords to access it normally. According to the report, the version with the backdoor was apparently placed on file servers in November 2009, but remained unnoticed until now.

All the more reason to moderate source code control systems w/peer review prior to actual installation with restricted permission for writing.

Lost RCON connection, please retry command (UNKNOWN ERROR)

I run the dedicated of the same computer i play CS on. Last night the rcon commands were working fine but now every time I try to use an rcon command it gives me that error.

Another thing I would like to ask help on is if someone can tell me the command for resarting the round on my dedicated server. I've tried like all the commands but it says unknown command for the ones I thought were right.

A:Counter-Strike: Source Dedicated Server

That rcon problem has been around since the beginning and no one knows how to fix it permanetly. Try restarting your computer, or reconnecting to the internet, if the server restarts or map changes, that also may fix it.

As for the restart command try mp_restart 1, mp_restartround 1, sv_restart 1, sv_restartround 1. It should be one of those.

Hi there

Why can't people be more honest on their websites -- as well as making it harder and harder to find REAL downloads without confusing extra offers / links to other programs with the real link buried deep down in an easy to miss website - I really hate the following that seems to be commonplace now -- FREE DOWNLOAD which implies FREE -- but the SOFTWARE most certainly Isn't but totally no mention of BUY / PAY on the site.

We should BOYCOTT those sites and make our feelings known --nothing wrong about people wanting to make a few bucks - especially these days with good jobs getting harder to find -but we can still be OPEN.

You might not believe this, but I've never used a VM in my life. I never actually "tested" malware. Because Assembly is too low-level, complicated language, I never bothered to reverse-engineer. Now that I want to do so, are there any free, and opens-source VMs? Do I need to have a copy of my operating system (ex. Windows 8?)? Anything I should know before using?

A:Any open-source, good VM?

Assembly is too low-level and complicated? It's easy to understand once you have basic grasp of it (which admittedly takes a lot of effort!!), and from there, even machine code becomes easy to understand (and this, you can read shellcode without assembling).

Hmm, I'm not familiar with it personally but isn't XEN open source?

Going completely off topic....

A simple bit of shellcode for you:



Each instruction is a set number of bytes.

For example the first instruction is 2 bytes:


0x31 0xC0

For example:
0x31 is the machine code representation of the instruction XOR which means Exclusive OR (you know, 1 xor 1 = 0...0 x 1 = 0 etc).

0xC0 is a little more complicated. But machine code opcodes are split into bits or 'parts' if you like. To keep things simple and save this post getting way too technical, let's just say that in this case, C0 represents the register eAX. Some instructions are obviously more sizeable than others, for example in our shellcode, B8 moves a value into the eAX register, which we read as:

B8 01 00 00 00 (mov eax, 1) with 00 for padding.

So reading it all together we get a simple code to exit from our process.


xor eax, eax ; clear register eax. 2 bytes compared with 5 bytes for mov eax, 0
mov eax, 1 ; move 0x1 into eax register
mov ebx, eax ; move the value held in eax into ebx
int 0x80 ; call an 'interrupt' (80) to exit the process. the exit code will be determined by the eax and ebx values :)
