    Question Building dedicated headless BT4R2 Linux small network

    Hi All,

    I want to learn / study Linux by using my spare HP Desktop dc7700 PC without monitor (headless) so I wonder if the following scenario is working with backtrack Linux:



    The ultimate goal is to be able to connect to the Linux server using VNC or any GUI tool from the Windows Server and then scan the wireless LAN for weak password with aircrack or any other tools from (http://sectools.org/wireless.html) because I know that windows cannot be used for such thing anymore.

    I have setup BT 4u1 before but then I give up since I cannot make the USB WLAN working or get the IP address :-|
    but so far I have tried using Ubuntu for daily testing but not serious hacking and security matter.

    Any kind of suggestion and idea would be greatly appreciated.

    You're going to want to setup a static ip on BT. That scenario isn't exactly what you're going to want to do. You will want the headless linux machine and the windows server both connected to the switch.

    Most people I know use SSH but VNC is already installed you just need to run the daemon.
