In our quest to make orkut universally accessible, we're now available in 5 new languages: Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu. Indians have always been a vibrant part of the orkut community, and we continue to see more Indians joining orkut every day. It's our goal to make orkut the ultimate tool for self-expression and communication, and we know that if we're not translated into your native language, this becomes harder. So we worked closely with Googlers in our Indian offices to help develop the initial release of these languages. Since there are many different nuances to these languages, we want to hear your feedback. To help us improve the translation or tell us what language you'd like to see orkut in, you can visit our community on orkut: Indian Language Translations. We chose these languages initially because together they cover 80% of India. We do recognize India has more than 400 different spoken languages, but think these 5 are a good start, and we hope that introducing orkut in these regional tongues brings us closer to many more of you to bridge the gap between language and technology. Viewing the orkut site in Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil or Telugu (or any one of our other 12 languages) is easy.

1. Click the settings button under your profile photo (or click the blue settings link at the top of any page).
2. On the general tab, choose your preferred display language from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
3. Click save changes.

If you are having trouble reading languages on the "Settings" page, it is likely that your browser scripts have not been updated. For Internet Explorer, proceed to "Tools" and then "Windows Update". Here you should accept the Windows XP Service Pack 2 update. All languages are included in this update.

We hope this will help many more people enjoy orkut in their own language every day.

Google search engine can be used to hack into remote servers or gather confidential or sensitive information which are not visible through common searches.

Google is the world’s most popular and powerful search engine. It has the ability to accept pre-defined commands as inputs which then produces unbelievable results.

Google’s Advanced Search Query Syntax

Discussed below are various Google’s special commands and I shall be explaining each command in brief and will show how it can be used for getting confidential data.

[ intitle: ]

The “intitle:” syntax helps Google restrict the search results to pages containing that word in the title.

intitle: login password


will return links to those pages that has the word "login" in their title, and the word "password" anywhere in the page.

Similarly, if one has to query for more than one word in the page title then in that case “allintitle:” can be used instead of “intitle” to get the list of pages containing all those words in its title.

intitle: login intitle: password


is same as

allintitle: login password


[ inurl: ]

The “inurl:” syntax restricts the search results to those URLs containing the search keyword. For example: “inurl: passwd” (without quotes) will return only links to those pages that have "passwd" in the URL.

Similarly, if one has to query for more than one word in an URL then in that case “allinurl:” can be used instead of “inurl” to get the list of URLs containing all those search keywords in it.

allinurl: etc/passwd


will look for the URLs containing “etc” and “passwd”. The slash (“/”) between the words will be ignored by Google.

[ site: ]

The “site:” syntax restricts Google to query for certain keywords in a particular site or domain.

exploits site:hackingspirits.com


will look for the keyword “exploits” in those pages present in all the links of the domain “hackingspirits.com”. There should not be any space between “site:” and the “domain name”.

[ filetype: ]

This “filetype:” syntax restricts Google search for files on internet with particular extensions (i.e. doc, pdf or ppt etc).

filetype:doc site:gov confidential


will look for files with “.doc” extension in all government domains with “.gov” extension and containing the word “confidential” either in the pages or in the “.doc” file. i.e. the result will contain the links to all confidential word document files on the government sites.


[ link: ]

“link:” syntax will list down webpages that have links to the specified webpage.

link:www.expertsforge.com


will list webpages that have links pointing to the SecurityFocus homepage. Note there can be no space between the "link:" and the web page url.


[ related: ]

The “related:” will list web pages that are "similar" to a specified
web page.

related:www.expertsforge.com


will list web pages that are similar to the Securityfocus homepage. Note there can be no space between the "related:" and the web page url.


[ cache: ]

The query “cache:” will show the version of the web page that Google
has in its cache.

cache:www.hackingspirits.com


will show Google's cache of the Google homepage. Note there can be no space between the "cache:" and the web page url.

If you include other words in the query, Google will highlight those words within the cached document.

cache:www.hackingspirits.com guest


will show the cached content with the word "guest" highlighted.

[ intext: ]

The “intext:” syntax searches for words in a particular website. It ignores links or URLs and page titles.

intext:exploits


will return only links to those web pages that has the search keyword "exploits" in its webpage.


[ phonebook: ]

“phonebook” searches for U.S. street address and phone number information.

phonebook:Lisa+CA


will list down all names of person having “Lisa” in their names and located in “California (CA)”. This can be used as a great tool for hackers incase someone want to do dig personal information for social engineering.

Google Hacks

Well, the Google’s query syntaxes discussed above can really help people to precise their search and get what they are exactly looking for.

Now Google being so intelligent search engine, hackers don’t mind exploiting its ability to dig much confidential and secret information from the net which they are not supposed to know. Now I shall discuss those techniques in details how hackers dig information from the net using Google and how that information can be used to break into remote servers.

Index Of

Using “Index of ” syntax to find sites enabled with Index browsing

A webserver with Index browsing enabled means anyone can browse the webserver directories like ordinary local directories. The use of “index of” syntax to get a list links to webserver which has got directory browsing enabled will be discussd below. This becomes an easy source for information gathering for a hacker. Imagine if the get hold of password files or others sensitive files which are not normally visible to the internet. Below given are few examples using which one can get access to many sensitive information much easily.

Index of /admin
Index of /passwd
Index of /password
Index of /mail

"Index of /" +passwd
"Index of /" +password.txt
"Index of /" +.htaccess

"Index of /secret"
"Index of /confidential"
"Index of /root"
"Index of /cgi-bin"
"Index of /credit-card"
"Index of /logs"
"Index of /config"


Looking for vulnerable sites or servers using “inurl:” or “allinurl:”

a. Using “allinurl:winnt/system32/” (without quotes) will list down all the links to the server which gives access to restricted directories like “system32” through web. If you are lucky enough then you might get access to the cmd.exe in the “system32” directory. Once you have the access to “cmd.exe” and is able to execute it.


b. Using “allinurl:wwwboard/passwd.txt”(without quotes) in the Google search will list down all the links to the server which are vulnerable to “WWWBoard Password vulnerability”. To know more about this vulnerability you can have a look at the following link:

http://www.securiteam.com/exploits/2BUQ4S0SAW.html

c. Using “inurl:.bash_history” (without quotes) will list down all the links to the server which gives access to “.bash_history” file through web. This is a command history file. This file includes the list of command executed by the administrator, and sometimes includes sensitive information such as password typed in by the administrator. If this file is compromised and if contains the encrypted unix (or *nix) password then it can be easily cracked using “John The Ripper”.

d. Using “inurl:config.txt” (without quotes) will list down all the links to the servers which gives access to “config.txt” file through web. This file contains sensitive information, including the hash value of the administrative password and database authentication credentials.

For Example: Ingenium Learning Management System is a Web-based application for Windows based systems developed by Click2learn, Inc. Ingenium Learning Management System versions 5.1 and 6.1 stores sensitive information insecurely in the config.txt file. For more information refer the following
links: http://www.securiteam.com/securitynews/6M00H2K5PG.html

inurl:adpassword.txt
inurl:webeditor.php
inurl:file_upload.php

inurl:gov filetype:xls "restricted"
index of ftp +.mdb allinurl:/cgi-bin/ +mailto


Looking for vulnerable sites or servers using “intitle:” or “allintitle:”

a. Using [allintitle: "index of /root”] (without brackets) will list down the links to the web server which gives access to restricted directories like “root” through web. This directory sometimes contains sensitive information which can be easily retrieved through simple web requests.

b. Using [allintitle: "index of /admin”] (without brackets) will list down the links to the websites which has got index browsing enabled for restricted directories like “admin” through web. Most of the web application sometimes uses names like “admin” to store admin credentials in it. This directory sometimes contains sensitive information which can be easily retrieved through simple web requests.

New features in Orkut

Installing a theme

* Download a theme from the website.(Download Link)
* Extract the files in this .ZIP file to your desktop ( for example, with Winzip )
* If there is an executable between the files you extracted, run it.
This will install the theme for you. You're done.
* If you can't find an executable, you need to install the theme manually.
The theme is located in a folder you just extracted. Look for a folder with the same name as the theme.
Once you have found this folder, you need to move it to the directory where Google Talk stores all its themes.
This is C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Google Talk\themes\user\chat.
USERNAME needs to be replaced with your windows username. Move the entire theme folder to this location.
Using the theme

* Start Google Talk if it's not already running.
* Now open your settings window by clicking 'Settings'.
* Select 'Appearance' from the left menu
* Your theme should appear in the list, if not, you did something wrong.
Select the theme and click OK.
* Open a conversation window and watch the magic.

* Drag a file onto the chat history and you'll send the file to the selected contact.
* When you see a message notification, you can right click it to close it without focusing the conversation window.

Conference Calls

* What you need to do to have conference calls: Open up a copy of Google Talk on all computers with which you wish to conference. After one copy is opened make a new shortcut for Google Talk but at the end of it add /nomutex. If you installed it to the default folder then your shortcut should read "C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe" /nomutex. Open 2 instances of the software on every user's computer. After this start a chain: User 1 should connect on one instance to user 2. User 2 will connect on his second instance to user 3. User 3 will connect using his second instance back to user 1. With this chain everyone is connected to everyone.

Nickname & Status Message

* You can change your name in the Google Account page.
or To change the nickname need to go to your Gmail account and change the name there. Choose Settings, Accounts, and then Edit info. Click on the second radio button, and enter your custom name.
As a result all of your emails will have that nick as well, there is no way to seperate the two.
* You can add a website in your custom message, it will be clickable when someone opens a conversation window with you.

Contacts

* You don’t need to say Yes or No when someone wants to add you as a friend; you can simply ignore it, the request will go away. (On the other hand, someone with whom you chat often will automatically turn to be your friend, unless you disable this).
* The Gmail account 'user@gmail.com' can't be invited as your friend.

Sound & Video

* It's possible to broadcast music, MP3, etc.. through Google Talk.
Unplug your microphone. Double click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner. This will open
up "Volume Control". Select "Options" and then "Properties". Then check the button
next to "Recording" then click OK. You may also have to change your setting under
Mixer Device. Now the Recording Control screen should be up. On my computer I selected "Wave Out Mix". Click on the green phone in Google Talk and call your friend.

Secret Startup Parameters

* /nomutex: allows you to open more than one instance of Google Talk

When you translated this message it said: 'play wumpus.game'. To play this game you had to invite wumpus.game@gmail.com as a friend. wumpus.game@gmail.com is always offline now. You can still play Hunt the Wumpus here.
* Google Talk can dock into the Google Desktop Sidebar. Doubleclick on the titlebar in the Google Talk main window and it docks as a panel into the GDS and slides out when you click the top of the docked panel.(Source)

Internet users who live in a country outside the United States would usually get limited country slot error when trying to download files from Mega upload. Mega upload requires the visitors to install the Alexa tool bar to proceed downloading and it will be quite troublesome if we’re using public computer or prefer not to install information gathering software like the Alexa Tool bar. There are several ways to solve this either by using US based proxy or by applying some tweaks to your computer/internet browser which is the most effective method this time. Those tweaks are:

Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.5 tweak:

1. Go to address bar and type about:config . Press enter
2. Look for general.useragent.extra.firefox using the filter and double click on it
3. Change the default text with this: Firefox/2.0.0.5 MEGAUPLOAD 1.0

Windows Registry tweak (for Internet Explorer 7 and Internet Explorer 6):

1. Open run in the start menu and type regedit. Press enter.
2. in Registry Editor window, go to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Setting\5.0\User Agent\Post Platform]
3. Right click on ‘Post Platform’ and add new string value. Enter “Alexa Toolbar”. Save the registry and restart your computer.

note: For IE 7.0 the “Post Platform” will be located at:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mcft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\User Agent\Post Platform]

I have Tested it and working. Just try this trick

This is a simple guide on how to use proxy with Mozilla Firefox Browser:

If you use proxies, you can:

a) download as many time you like using Rapidshare.de

b) Use Megaupload if your country slot is limited.

c) Enhance your privacy (no one can whois you)

d) Avoid hacker

e) Download faster (some proxies containe internet cache)

To get free proxies, go here

How to setup proxy:

Older Version: Go to tools>option>general>connection
Latest Version: Go to tools>options>advanced>network>settings


Enter setting like this screenshot: make sure that you change the proxy address.

I knew a lot of us here use Rapidshare to download and share a lot of stuff. It's quite annoying when we were unable to download for a certain period after downloading a big file. What are going to be shared to day is how to download from Rapidshare using proxy so that you won't have to face the 1 hour limitation problem again.

The programs that we need are a browser with ability to use proxy. I use Slimbrowser for two reasons:

1) I don't want to delete my Firefox or IE cache and cookies files.

2) It's very lite and not a resource hogger

Steps:

1. Download the browser from this location. Install it.
2. Get a proxy list here. This trick requires the usage of proxy server to work. So don't skip this step. Grab one proxy or more!
3. This is how you are going to setup your proxy

:Click Tools > Proxies > Organize Proxies

- In the Name field, enter something to identify your proxy, for example, Brazil #1
- In the first address field, enter the proxy address you got from Proxy4Free,
for example, 200.162.195.62
- In the second address field, enter the proxy port, for example, 3128
- If you want to set the entered proxy as the default proxy, then click the
Set As Current Proxy button
- Click OK to close the dialog box

* If you want to add more proxies, repeat the steps above again and again.

4. After you have setup the proxy, copy and paste the Rapidshare download link to your
browsers’ address bar, and wait for the Rapidshare page to launch.

5. In Rapidshare website, do the followings:

- Press enter and scoll down to bottom and click the FREE button

- Wait until the counter reaches zero or use any auto-reveal-link-utility
- Copy paste the download link into your favorite download manager, for
example, Flashget
- Download the file happily

Troubleshooting

Note that if Rapidshare gives you error like this;

This IP is not allowed to use free anonymous services.. or Your IP, xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is downloading a file…

It's time to use another proxy!!! In Slimbrowser, go to menu, Tools > Proxies and select another proxy you already entered before

6) After downloading a file, don’t forget to clear your trace!


In Slimbrowser go to menu Tools > Internet Options to open the Internet Options applet
Click both Delete Cookies and Delete Files button to wipe out all references to Rapidshare. If you need to download more files, repeat all steps from 1 to 6, and hopefully you’ll be happier than ever.

Tips:

1. Do not choose proxy with port 80

2. Avoid choosing proxies addresses <195 because some of them are slow.

Windows 7 is a Microsoft future operating system expected to be released windows-seven-wallpaper in early 2010 or later. Formerly codenamed Black comb, and then Vienna, it’s no longer a secret that Microsoft has started working on this operating system since the release of Windows Vista.

Long Z; the designer of the famous Vista Aurora wallpaper recently has created Windows 7 wallpaper pack for anyone who is interested to Vienna.

The unofficial logo concept was his idea and the wallpaper pack was shared by Frank on deviant art.


Simple, pretty, and Microsoftish. That’s how I would describe this set. The wallpaper is available in different screen resolutions and you can download them here.

As you certainly know, the right mouse button brings up what is known as the “context menu.” As the name implies, the choices available on the menu differ according to the current situation.

Well, here are 5 tips involving context menus that you may not know.

On thing you may not have noticed is that one item in every context menu is usually presented in bold. This is the default action that is taken when the left mouse button is used.

Tip #1: If you are ever in doubt about what will happen when you double-click on something (with the left mouse button), then use the right mouse button to bring up the context menu, and look for the item in bold.


Right-click also works with click and drag operations. Try this the next time you do a click and drag: Instead of clicking with the left mouse button, and then dragging the object, use the right mouse button. When you finished dragging (i.e. when you do the drop), a context menu will appear (a different one, specifically for dragging). This shows you all of the actions that are available for the combination of the object that you are dragging and the location you have dragged it to. Once again, the default action will be shown in bold. This is the action that normally occurs when you use the left mouse button to do the click-and-drag.


Tip #2: If you are ever in doubt about what will happen when you click-and-drag an object (with the left mouse button), then use the right mouse button to perform the dragging, and then look for the action that is in bold.

When might you be in doubt? Well, in the case of dragging files around within the Windows Explorer, two of the possible actions are Move and Copy. These two take turns being the default action, depending on the drop zone. If you are dragging a file to a different location on the same to disk drive, then Move is the default action, but if you drag it to a different to disk drive altogether, then Copy is the default action.

Another option available when using drag-and-drop in Windows Explorer is to create a shortcut to the object, rather than copying or moving the object itself.

Tip #3: Use right-click-and-drag to quickly create a shortcut to an object on your desktop. This will leave the actual object in its original (proper) location, yet give you convenient access to it from the desktop.

Tip #4: A corollary to Tip #3 — Using right-click-and-drag to create shortcuts is particularly handy when dealing with batch files. When you create a shortcut to a batch file it gives you more control over executing the batch file then simply double-clicking on the batch file itself. This is because the shortcut contains adjustable properties specifically for this purpose. So, after creating a shortcut, right-click on the shortcut, select the Properties option, and then adjust them as necessary.


Tip #5: Have you ever accidentally dragged an object to the wrong location? Just as you let go of the mouse button, your hand twitches, and the cursor ends up in the next file folder over. Depending on how much work it was to select the files being dragged (perhaps with lots of Ctrl+Click and Shift+Clicks), this can be a real nightmare. The solution to this is to use the right mouse button to do the dragging. When you let go of the right mouse button, the context menu pops up. One of the choices there is Cancel. The destination gets “locked in” when you let go of the mouse button, so if the wrong location is locked in, then all you have to do is click on Cancel and try the drag again. Otherwise, go ahead and select the action that you wanted to perform in the first place. (Probably the one in bold.) source

A modern PC with Vista Home Edition takes about one and a half minutes to boot. An older machine with XP is about the same. That’s 30 seconds for the PC itself (the BIOS) to boot up, plus a minute for the Windows operating system to boot. Sometimes, you need to reboot Windows (e.g. when installing new software), but there is no need to restart BIOS, too. However, the default is to reboot both. (That’s called doing a “cold boot,” rather than a “warm boot.”) There’s a trick that works on both XP and Vista to get it to do a warm boot instead, thus saving you 30 seconds per cycle.

The trick is to hold down the SHIFT key when invoking the restart.

Windows Vista: Select Start, then hover over the right arrow that is to the right of the padlock icon until the pop-up menu appears that contains “restart” as one of it’s choices. Hold down the SHIFT key while clicking on the “restart” choice.

Windows XP: Select Start. Select “Shut Down…”. Change the drop-down combo box under “What do you want the computer to do?” to “Restart”. Hold down the SHIFT key while clicking on the “OK” button. source

YouMint is a unique social utility that connects you with people around you. Only real people! YouMint pays you to invite friends and to receive SMS promos! It might just pay your Mobile bill :-)

You mint offers services as fallows

Send free SMS to any one in India
Get paid for inviting friends and get more promo.
Create and sell mobile contents to friends like wallpaper, screen saver,etc..
Get paid for receiving adds on your mobile
get paid for your friends receiving adds on their mobile
Contact with friends via personal messages
and many more


Confused on how they pay us? OK, here’s how it works

- What you get each time you get a promo SMS – Rs 0.20
- What you get when a friend you referred get a promo – Rs 0.10
- What you get when a friend of the friend you referred gets a promo – Rs 0.05

So therefore, if you have lots of friends, who have a lot of friends, you could make a lot of money each time a promotion is done. Even if we send everyone 1 promo a day, you stand to earn Rs. 666 every month. OK, OK, here’s the math again

- What you make for receiving 1 promo a day for a month : 1 promo x 30 days x Rs.0.20 per promo = Rs 6
- What you make when a friend you referred gets a 1 promo a day for a month: 1 promo x 30 days x Rs.0.10 per promo x 20 friends = Rs 60
- What you make when a friend of a friend you referred gets 1 promo a day for a month : 1 promo x 30 days x Rs.0.05 per promo * 400 friends (assuming each of your twenty friends successfully referred 20 friends each)= Rs.600

So, Rs 6 + Rs 60+ Rs 600 adds up to a cool Rs 666!

Keystroke logging (often called keylogging) is a diagnostic tool used in software development that captures the user's keystrokes. It can be useful to determine sources of error in computer systems and is sometimes used to measure employee productivity on certain clerical tasks. Such systems are also highly useful for law enforcement and espionage—for instance, providing a means to obtain passwords or encryption keys and thus bypassing other security measures. However, keyloggers are widely available on the Internet and can be used by private parties to spy on the computer usage of others.

Writing software applications for keylogging is trivial, and like any computer program can be distributed as a trojan horse or as part of a virus. What is not trivial however, is installing a keystroke logger without getting caught and downloading data that has been logged without being traced. An attacker that manually connects to a host machine to download logged keystrokes risks being traced. A trojan that sends keylogged data to a fixed e-mail address or IP address risks exposing the attacker.

lets see some of the key logger's what I known

Local Keylogger Pro 3.1 - Local Keylogger Pro allows you to monitor all users' activity on any computers in real time and record each computer's usage history. Local Keylogger Pro makes it easy to view, in real time, the screenshots of the any computers, all typed keystrokes, visited Web sites, used programs. You can view a list of running processes and terminate undesirable ones. Local Keylogger Pro can record all user activity to the log file. This information can be exported to HTML for convenient viewing in your web browser, or exported to MHT file for analysis. This allows you to see how long users worked with particular programs, how much time they spent on Internet, what sites they visited, what they typed in e-mails or chats.[Download][Crack]

XP Advanced Keylogger 2.5 - XP Advanced Keylogger is a top-rated invisible easy-to-use surveillance tool that records every keystroke to a log file.

It causes no suspicious slowdowns and takes very few system resources. all this is happening in full stealth mode so the person you are monitoring will never be aware of it.{Windows 95, NT4, 98, Me, 2000, XP} [Download][Crack]

Blazing Tools Perfect Keylogger 1.67 - Perfect Keylogger is a new generation keylogger which is absolutely undetectable. It was created as an alternative to very expensive commercial products like iSpyNow, Spector Keylogger or E-Blaster. It has the same functionality, but is significantly easier to use.

Perfect Keylogger is an extremely compact, award-winning tool. It is translated into 20 languages and is increasingly popular around the world! It lets you record all keystrokes, the time they were made and the application where they were entered. It works in the absolutely stealth mode. Stealth mode means that no button or icon is present in the Task Bar, and no process title is visible in the Task Manager list.

Also, Perfect Keylogger can carry out visual surveillance. It periodically makes screenshots in invisible mode and stores the compressed images on the disk so you can review them later.
Perfect Keylogger was the first keylogging software solution which can be absolutely invisible in the Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista Task Manager![Download][Crack]

SC Keylogger Pro V3.2 - A Commercial Key Logger is a program that captures and logs keystrokes as they are entered on the computer for the purpose of monitoring the user. The logged data, which may be encrypted, is saved or sent to the person who installed the key logger. These applications often run in stealth mode and are invisible to the user that is being monitored. Such key loggers are sold commercially and may be used legitimately if deployed by authorized administrators and disclosed to the persons being monitored, as in a business environment. The use of a key logger to monitor persons without their knowledge has been ruled illegal in at least one jurisdiction.[Download]

Learning Telnet

::Don't use this for illegal stuff::

Introduction:
Telnet is used to connect to remote machines through emulation. This means that
it can connect to a server, any server instantly because of it's ability to emulate (copy)
remote computers.

Lets Start:
In Windows, Telnet can be found by going to Start -> Run and then typing telnet.
The application should then pop up. If you don't have Windows, there are many Telnet alternatives for mac, linux etc. Since I don't know any,search the internet for Telnet for Linux or Telnet for Mac and you should find something instantly.

If you have a PC and are using Windows 98/95, 2000, Me, or XP continue...

As you can see, Telnet has 4 menu options. These are Connect, Edit, Terminal, and Help.

If you click Connect, you should see more options. Here they are.

Connect:
Remote System..
Disconnect
Exit

Names of servers you have been on.

To connect to a server, click Remote System...
This will then take you to a dialog box that has these fields:

Hostname:
Port:
TermType:

There should also be a Connect button and a Cancel Button.

Lets go over these & what you should put in them.

-Hostname-

The Hostname can be the address of the website your going to be connecting to:
http://www.google.com
or it can be the IP address. Keep in mind that you can only connect to servers and not to clients (other PCs)
an IP Address looks like this: 64.233.167.99

-Port-
Port can bb either the port number you wanna connect to on the server (Port 80 is the Internet, Port 23 is Simple Mail Protocol then there are some more ports for different things..)
or you can keep it Telnet and see what happens.

-TermType-
TermType is the type of Terminal telnet will be acting like.
This doesn't matter most of the time, so you can keep it to default or try other ones if you want.

When you have all this set up, you can Click Connect & see what happens.

Note: Sometimes many servers don't like anon people just logging on, so be careful when logging onto servers, because sometimes it might be some big company that likes bullying people or just SOMEONE who likes bullying people and then they might want to find you or trace you or something and I know for a fact you don't need that happening.

Another Note: When you go to a server and type something, such as a login name or a password, you might not see anything even though you are typing. this is a feature that telnet or the other server uses. It's for some kind of safety measure.

Ok that's all for the Connect Menu, lets go over the Terminal menu.

The terminal menu should have 3 options:

Prefernces
Start Logging
Stop Logging.

-Prefernces-
If you go to this, a dialog box will come up with various options. Here, you can change the
text color & background color of the program, and you can enable Local Echo, which shows
you everything you've typed, Blinking cursor if you want the cursor to blink check it, if not un check, Block cursor if you want the cursor to be shown as a block, VT100 Arrows, don't worry about these they are useless, Buffer Size, this allows you to set the number of lines of text you want to be shown before the screen starts to scroll, The Terminal emulation type, always have this set on the default unless you know what the second one is and you know what your doing.

-Start Logging-
This logs everything you do on Telnet in a log file on your computer.

-Stop Logging-
This will stop logging processes.

Well that's it for basics of telnet. Thanks for reading.

Getting Ip's:--

To see the ip all computers you are connected to (web servers, people attempting to hack into your computer).
Go to dos (start>run>type command) and run the netstat command. Type netstat /? for details.


Type netstat -r at the command prompt to see the ip of all computers you are connected to

In MSN (and other programs) when you are chatting to someone everything you type goes through the MSN servers first (they act as a proxy) so you see their ip rather than who you are chatting to. You can get round this by sending them a file as MSN doesn't send file through its proxy.
When you type the netstat -r (or -a for a different view) the ip's are under the foreign address table. The ports are seperated by a : . Different programs use different ports, so you can work out which ip's are from which program.


Connecting to other computers and what ports are:--

Servers send information. Clients retrieve. Simple.
Windows comes with a built in program to connect to other computers called telnet.
To start Windows telnet Start menu> Run> type Telnet. Click connect> remote system
Ports are doors into computers. Hosts are computer names
(ip number or a name that is translated into the ip automatically)
Different programs open different ports, but they always open the same ports so other computers know which port to connect to. You can get a port list listing all the different ports, but a basic one is:
11 :- Sends info on the computer
21 :- FTP (File transfer program)
23 :- Telnet (Login to the computers command line)
25 :- Smtp (Sends mail)
80 :- Http (Web pages)
There are thousands of different programs using different ports. You can get programs called portscanners which check a computer for all ports up to a certain number, looking for ways in. You can portscan a computer looking for ways-in.
Anyway, back to telnet.
Type www.yahoo.com as the host and port as 80 the click connect.
If nothing happens, you're in. Wow. You are connected to Yahoo's server.
You can now type http commands (you are connected to an http server, so it supports http commands). Ie. on an ftp server you can type open and it will do something. On an http server it will just wonder what the hell you are on about.
Type get / http/1.0 then press enter twice to get the file on the server at / (try /index.html) etc.)


Allowing dos and regedit in a restricted Windows

A very simple tactic I found after accidentally locking myself out of dos and regedit is to open notepad and type the following:
REGEDIT4
[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesWinOldApp]
"Disabled"=dword:0
[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem]
"DisableRegistryTools"=dword:0
Save it as something.reg then run it. Simple.


Proxies

Proxies are computers that you connect through, hiding your computer. Most aren't anonymous, they give away your ip. Some are. Good anonymous proxies: mail.uraltelecom.ru:8080 and 194.247.87.4:8080.
Different programs require different ways of using proxies. To do it in internet explorer 5 go to tools, internet options, connections, settings. In the above proxies they are in the format host:port

To provide maximum viewable space in the Firefox browser window, many people use a streamlined Firefox layout which I will detail here. The difference between the default and the streamlined view is shown below: Click to enlarge

As you can see, the streamlined view retains all the main functionality of Firefox, but reconfigures the layout to be as minimal as possible. Follow these steps to implement it:

1. Open Firefox, go to the View menu, select Toolbars and untick the 'Bookmarks Toolbar' item.

2. If you have a Sidebar showing, under the View menu select Sidebar and unselect any items.

3. Under the View menu select Toolbars and then select Customize. Alternatively you can right-click on an empty spot on a toolbar and select Customize.

4. In the 'Customize Toolbar' box which appears, select Icons in the Show box (not 'Icons and Text', or Text). If you're running a lower screen resolution also tick the 'Use Small Icons' box.

5. Now remove every icon or element in the Firefox toolbar at the top of the browser which you don’t need. For example, drag and drop the Search box into the 'Customize Toolbar' box to remove it from the Firefox toolbar. Do the same for any other icons/elements which you feel are unnecessary, such as the large white space filler at the top right of the Navigation toolbar. You can always re-add these elements at any time if you change your mind later on.

6. Now drag and drop each icon in the bottom Firefox toolbar up to the top toolbar, just to the right of the 'Help' menu item. This includes the large white Address box. The aim is to have everything on a single toolbar.

7. Insert any additional icons, separators or blank spaces you need from the selection shown in the 'Customize Toolbar' box into the relevant spots on the top Firefox toolbar. When finished, click the Done button.

8. Finally, go to the View menu, and under Toolbars unselect the 'Navigation Toolbar' as it should now be completely empty anyway.

You should now have a single Firefox toolbar at the top of your browser, complete with all the menu commands, relevant icons and the address box. This gives you more vertical viewable space (and a substantial amount of horizontal space if you had a sidebar showing). If you need more, go to the View menu and untick the 'Status Bar' item as it is not vital, and provides a further bit of vertical viewable space.

Obviously this layout may not suit everyone, and can be modified to suit your taste. However once you get used to it, it is extremely efficient and provides maximum viewable space in Firefox. Note that you can further customize the layout by looking under the Advanced Tweaking section.

Download Manager Hacks

This next group of hacks deal with the download manager in Firefox. For those of you that don’t use the Firefox download manager, skip this section.

Follow these steps to tweak/destroy your manager.

1. With Firefox up and running, type about:config and hit enter.
2. Take your pick of the following attributes to modify.
3a. browser.download.manager.showAlertInterval at default shows the alert message for 2000 milliseconds or 2 seconds. I personally set it to 500 milliseconds; all I need is a quick blurb telling me my download is done.
3b. browser.download.manager.openDelay at default opens up the download manager immediately, which can be a big pain if you are downloading 10Kb files to your desktop, you don’t need that annoying manager to pop up. I have this guy set on 30,000 milliseconds or 30 seconds. If a file is larger than 30 seconds of download time, I might want to watch its progress.
3c. browser.download.manager.closeWhenDone at default is set to false so that your manager doesn’t close itself. I set it to true just to get this thing out of the way the moment it is done, I like to watch progress, but I don’t need to waste space or the time to close it.
3d. browser.download.manager.flashCount at default flashes the download manager icon in your taskbar for 2 seconds, I prefer zero seconds to reduce annoyance, adjust to your preference.
4. Restart your browser.

Cache Hack

This next hack deals with the memory Firefox uses as cache. In the default setting, Firefox will adjust the cache size to fit however many pages you have open. While this is useful, if you tend to only have a few pages open at a time, you can manually reduce the setting to a specified amount at the cost of reducing performance when Firefox runs out of cache. To implement this hack, follow these steps.

1. With Firefox up and running, type about:config and hit enter.
2. Right click on the new page and select New -> Integer.
3. In the pop-up window, type in “browser.cache.memory.capacity”. In the following pop-up window, specify how many Kb of ram you want to dedicate to the cache, I selected 32768(32Mb). I suggest a number between 16Mb and 64Mb, anything lower and performance will suffer, anything higher is excessive. Here you should experiment, or don’t bother if it worries you.
4. Restart your browser

I don’t know how much this helps or hurts performance, so far with 32Mb enabled I have yet to see a major difference, memory use dropped from 42Mb to 39Mb with the same pages open, but I don’t think this hack is what did that.But I'm not sure if its useful or not

The first hack that I have here is the popular Firefox Minimize Hack that has recently flashed through the internet. The purpose of this hack tries to keep Firefox from eating up your physical RAM and instead puts the burden on your hard drive, or at least that is the general reason behind it. To implement this hack, perform the following steps.

1. With Firefox up and running, type about:config and hit enter.
2. Right click on the new page and select New -> Boolean.
3. In the pop-up window, type in “config.trim_on_minimize” without quotes and hit enter.
4. In the next pop-up window, select True and hit enter.
5. Restart your browser

With that done, open up a bunch of tabs and monitor the memory usage. In my first run without this hack, Firefox was using 137.8 Mb of Ram. With all 30 tabs open again, Firefox was using 118.4 Mb, but when minimized this dropped to an astounding 4 Mb. However, this was too good to be true, I left Firefox minimized and came back 12 minutes later and the memory use had slowly creeped up to 42.4 Mb. While this was 10 times larger than the initial 4.2 Mb, I was still saving about 75 Mb. One note about this, the memory was still very slowly creeping up by about 1 Mb per minute, maybe more or less per minute, but either way it was still creeping. I would have liked to test to see if it would creep up to the original 118.4 Mb but that would have required more than an hour and I am impatient. Another note, when I had Firefox maximized it was using 66 Mb with Flickr.com as the main tab, but 119 Mb when I quickly browsed through all my tabs and then quickly retreated back down to 66 Mb. I don’t know what causes this, but either way, for the most time it was using 66 Mb.
