    Exclamation Need help for school

    Hi,

    I'm taking a class on local area networks and my teacher wants us to configure backtrack 3 to be either a dhcp ftp or http server in the console. I and many other students are completly new to linnux and its been very hard to find anything on the web to explain. Our teacher wants us to learn for ouselves too so can anyone help? Thanks all!

    How about starting by finding out what applicable services come included with BackTrack, and then research the methods used to start those services.

    What part of that didn't you understand?

    yeah, that was tough to find.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Well let me help you with a quick lesson in googlefu' since bt3 is based on slax which is based on slackware use those terms instead.
    BTW with bt4 its debian/ubuntu.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    Of course, to get DHCP actually working on a LAN, you're going to have to be passingly familiar with the basics of IP addressing and DNS.

    So, some other terms you may need to search:
    • DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
    • TCP/IP (Tranport Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) addressing
    • Subnet Mask
    • DNS (Domain Name Service)


    RFC 2131 (DHCP) woud be a good place to start; it updates RFC 1541.
