Setting up a firewall on BT4 or BT5


hi guys!

once again im having security problems. I use the idea that no matter what you can always be tracked. if though that for me isnt a issue i want to know how to protect myself form being watched so they dont know want my users do when they surf through internet?

Its possible to remote desktop a ŽPC running windows using a PC runnig linux or vice versa?

how to surf through internet anonimously using Linux

As with most Internet security concepts, you need to determine what you are trying to protect against. Anonymity on the internet is a relative concept. If you want reasonable anonymity, use TOR or a paid VPN/Proxy service. If you go the former, be sure you read and understand the terms of service. In your browser, use add-ons like noscript, ghostery, adblock plus, and flashblock to remove and block most of the tracking cookies and systems. Be mindful of where you visit and especially of applications like Java and Flash which work as applications on your system and have access to more data than just your browser.

While privacy is a right, if you are doing things that are illegal, you can assume that you are not anonymous and you will get caught, period.

WRT your other question, yes, the easiest way would be to use a program like VNC.

Certainly. Since your using BT, which if I am not mistaken is still based upon Ubuntu (and even if it isn't these docs should still largely apply), here are three things for you:
1 - Start with this one because it discusses the various flavors of VNC and their differences and will giv eyou a good overview of the options: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNC/Servers
2 - Here is a VNC How To: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNC
3 - And here is another option, that since you mentioned view the Linux screen via Windows, called FreeNX that uses SSH to secure a VNC like session: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeNX
