PC/OS can play Multimedia file such as MP3’s File and DVD Movie’s File, and also has Flash Player and Sun Java 6 JRE included.

We can find almost all Ubuntu’s standard applications in this Distribution, like Abiword 2.4.6, Gnumeric 1.8.2, Flock 1.2.4 dan Audacious 1.5.0.

In Spite of using Xfce Windows Manager, PC/OS still have abeautifull Look, realy reliable, fast and Lightweight. This Operating System is really suitable for Old computers who need modern features with its simplicity and light in weight.

The Multimedia Features are really rockin :) the good news is PC/OS allready include Wine Application, an application to run Windows OS Application on Linux OS, So if you stilll get your hand on Wndows Apps, you can bring it On PC/OS (Not All Application can be run)

LINUX GUFW firewall-0.20.7 

Security in Internet connection or Local Area network, we need the system that can maintain the security of our system from virus, malware and others attacks. 

This can be done with by installing Fire wall. In Linux Operating System distributions, especially Ubuntu, the process of creating a firewall using iptables sintax can be difficult for some users. 

Using Gufw can be the Solutions for this, Gufw is a graphical application based firewall that is easy to use. For back-end applications, application package Gufw use ufw in the Netfilter firewall management . 

To start a fire wall, you check it on the firewall option enabled in the start page gufw, then you only need to allow / deny various incoming connections in the network. 

On the page RULE, you can simply choose which port and protocol are allowed (allow traffic) or prohibited (deny traffic) on the host computer.

Rule can also be used to Limit IP Port (Protecting Against brute force login attacks). In addition you can also activate the option ufw enable log to record all the firewall that is in progress. 

Gufw is an application that is right for you who want to strengthen the security of your computer system by using a firewall.

Linux spam filter-the protection

Linux spam filter-the protection 

Linux spam filter-the protection
Do You feel angry when virus and spam attacks your email/email server? nothing make people feel chapfallen other than to receive spam and viruses. If you are an currently an email administrator, then this can be the beginning of a bad career for you if you let it. 

Spam and virus attacks that can lead to ongoing performance and decreased even hang. Spam is one of the main causes of utmost network resource consumption, resource CPU, hard drive space, and others. 

One practical solution to avoid problems is to upgrade the hardware or use a separate e-mail servers, spam filters and virus filters on a different machine. 

One of the linux distro that can be used as reference to build a Linux server with Spam filter, such as technical scheme above is Ubuntu Linux distributions. This is because the Ubuntu Linux distributions LTS Server edition has a package Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) with Dovecot application as POP 3. While to filter spam and virus filters can use Untangle Gateway Applications. 

Required two computers, which is installed on the computer first mail server with the Ubuntu LTS server edition (or can use another Linux distro), and on the second computer is installed Untangle Application. 

Linux spam filter-the protection
Each computer has two network cards, one port with the settings given the public IP Address and another port given IP Local Address and connect between computers in parallel scheme, Technicaly, port 1 on a computer as the entrance of the Internet, and Port 2 connect to Port 3 on the computer B and Port 4 distribute results filter through to the destination on LAN Network. 

So with Applications Spam Blocker that act as filters for spam and virus filters as Virus Blocker with Untangel Applications Reports for the reporting system is said to be enough as a spam filter system using the Linux OS.

Linux Dedicated Server - INTRODUCTION

Linux Dedicated Server - INTRODUCTION
Linux as a software operating system Server

Linux Dedicated Server - INTRODUCTIONAt the time this Linux has become a very reliable Operating System in the world of servers, the superb in terms of safety, function and reliability make a Linux Operating System is used by many people today.

The Linux’s stability even used for a long nonstop Powered on when used as a server operating system and features to make a backup without having to turn off or restart the system is the other advantage of the Linux.

Another thing that a lot of consideration is that many of the Linux Operating System is an open source software which is available free to be so, the capital to build a server is cheaper compare to use any Proprietary Operating System.

The weaknesses of using Linux for Server Operating System is, Linux can not run Windows applications, so be pitied, if we bother to build a website using the code and applications that are Windows-based application, would not be able to run on the Linux Server.

But overall Linux offers many advantages; Make sure if you will use the services of the server that use Linux, you get features such as:
  • Firewalls
  • Security
  • Virus Protection
  • Cpanel
  • Mysql Database
  • Additional Ftp Creation
  • Sub Domain Services
  • Add On Domains
  • On Line Technical Support

So you will really feel the reliability of a Linux Server.
