Good day to everybody from Canada !


Hello all, My name is Dan and I am located in Montreal/Canada. Here is a quick summary of my limited Linux/Ubuntu experience. I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop (dual boot with Win7). I have also experienced connecting to a remote virtual private server via SSH and am using public key for authentification (using putty and Pageant). I am now using this VPS server primarely as a SSH server in order to bypass our corporate firewall (fear not, simply in order to browse web pages that are blocked. NOT to do bad things, just to experiment, just as a challenge). I have Putty on my work PC and OpenSSH was already installed on the remote VPS. While I am able to use this SSH tunnel to encrypt my connection, I do have a few configuration questions and was wondering which forum would be best for such configuration question. Should I post such question in the NETWORKING section ? Thanks in advance and looking forward to your reply/advice. Cheers !!! Dan
