In truth, I was an something of an internet pioneer. While I worked for Penn State University's York Campus (you can visit my web page there, as I still donate time to the campus), I got plenty of experience in using the Internet and with TCP/IP in general. For 2 years, I was the campus's LAN administrator. Actually, we had 3 LANs - 1 Token-Ring (bleah!), and 2 ethernet (thin-net). This was from late 1986 through 1989! I learned on 3Com's Ethershare, and then 3+Share (the fore-runner to 3+Open, which later was renamed Microsoft Lan Manager when 3Com sold out of the NOS market). I also learned Banyan ViNeS on that horrid Token-Ring. Banyan was way ahead of the curve with their software, and it was a shame they eventually failed. What they had in 1987 with global directories and server integration was still better than where Microsoft is today!
Anyway, I don't yet have much yet to publish here. I will
not publish personal stuff, such as where I live, my phone number, email
address etc, because I get enough spam already - all types. However,
my interests are another matter.
And just what is it I'm interested in?
Building a bootable Solaris CD. Quick reference on building a Sol 2.6, 7, or 8 (possibly 9) bootable CD. Yes, you can even build a Sol 8 bootable CD.
How to effectively block P2P services with your Cisco router. I've spent a lot of time on this where I work since we have a lot of people that seem to think that US GOVT property is actually free for their own personal (and sometimes illegal) activities.
Coming soon: my efforts to integrate Solaris into a Win2k environment using Kerberos authentication. I know somebody else has probably done it, but if they have, they're not writing about it. I will.
