    Locked

    by admin ·

    Can anyone tell me the best career choice I could make and what is the best OS (for networking) and what should I say in an interview?

    Also, do you like the new XP and it’s “scheme”?

    I am trying to set up a TCP/IP and can you please explain subnetting in full and “addressing” such as uses four groups of three digits?

    What is the best firewall to use for an education site?

    Is Norton or Mcaffee the best antivirus?

    How do I play “BoxWorld” on my Palm Pilot?

    Do you think the best supervisor is a technician or a supervisor without technical background?

    Does Microsoft suck?

    Thank you in advance.

      How do you slice the IT pie so that all areas get what they need?

      What is THE answer to all of your technology problems?

      Why does (fill in the blank with an OS) do something in such a way?

      TCP/IP

      by jontee ·

      In reply to Best career choice and os to use?

      The best analogy for Tcp/Ip is the addressing scheme. Where in you look at a network as a town and subnets as streets, now the houses on the street are the hosts this could be a workstation, server, router etc. We use subnetting to reduce network congestion or overcome limitations of the number of hosts in a network.

          You better hope that file doesn’t find you, especially if you are connected to a network. go to symantec.cam and find a sircam.exe removal tool. you most likely have a virus that is very nasty and is hard as hell to remove.

      Best os

      by erukullas ·

      In reply to Best career choice and os to use?

      Best os depends basically to which group u belong like. U have to see the security issua and if u are in a big organization where security is really a big future then consider the os’s like sunsolaris, unix. But ur in a network of networks and high security is not the major issue cost wise then u can cnsider NT,2000. Now a days 2000 is having a large group of compatible items so it is almost stabilising. So u can consider win2k very efficient

      networking

      if u are making ur own network and things like that then consider 192.1.8.1 to 192.1.8.255 as ur private network . this is best suited for ur environment.

      firewall.

      U can use a hardware fire wall or a software firewall. If u want a general firewall u can go for a router built firewall. But u want really a good fore wall then u can consider checkpoint fire wall.

      anti virus.
      I feel norton antivirus is better than mcafee . I t has a regular & frequent updates than McAfee.

      Any where in this world just theoritical knowledge is not enough. The person with the woking/ technical know how is preferred. So experience means much then just knowledge.

        Best OS = Most obscure

        by generalist ·

        In reply to Best os

        When you get down to security, the ‘best’ OS is the one that is the most obscure OS that can still do the job of running an organization.

        For example, you hear lots about Windows security problems and a fair amount about Unix/Linux security problems but very little about the lesser known OS population like the AS/400 and the IBM or HP mainframes. A popular OS attracts lots of crackers. A semi-obscure OS attracts a much, much smaller group.

        The absolute ‘best’ OS for security would be a proprietary one that is updated hourly and limited to ‘need to know’ computers. While it would be expensive to create and maintain, the odds of a cracker finding weaknesses in it would be extremely low.

        Of course there are problems with this approach, but it could work with the right environment…

        Now how much of the above is serious and how much is tongue-in-cheek, considering the posting that started everything?

        Personally, I’m not sure…

          As evidenced by my lack of trouble running the Atari OS at home.

          Now, if I could just get Apache to run on it.

      Mommy why is the sky blue?

      by tomsal ·

      In reply to Best career choice and os to use?

      Can anyone tell me the best career choice I could make and what is the best OS (for networking) and what should I say in an interview?

      A. The best career choice is probably someone in the entertainment industry, you get paid tons of money and people swoon over you solely because your name is known worldwide and people see you on TV, bonus: You don’t even have to have any REAL skills or knowledge. 😉

      B. The best OS is the one your employer wants, unless you are at the top of the IT food chain – then its based on your needs and the applications you need to run.

      Also, do you like the new XP and it’s “scheme”?

      A. XP sucks.

      I am trying to set up a TCP/IP and can you please explain subnetting in full and “addressing” such as uses four groups of three digits?

      A. You’re asking what subnetting is and asking best career choice? You need to understand TCP/IP first before you even attempt to find a career related to any IT administration position.

      What is the best firewallto use for an education site?

      A. One that’s low cost, thoroughly tested and has been around for at least a couple years.

      Is Norton or Mcaffee the best antivirus?

      A. This is subjected. All have their own tastes. IMHO, I like Computer Associates’ Inoculan product.

      How do I play “BoxWorld” on my Palm Pilot?

      A. Do yourself a favor and get Tribes 2 for the PC and leave the sissy games for the kiddies. 😉

      Do you think the best supervisor is a technician or a supervisor without technical background?

      A. Depends on the position, is it a technical one. (common sense questions get common sense answers).

      Does Microsoft suck?

      A. No. They blow. 😉

      Thank you in advance.

        Light defracts off of the O2 moleculs into the blue end of the spectrum silly … 🙂

        Oh ya and if you really think about why the sky is blue you can figure out why the saying “Pink sky in morning sailor take warning; Pink sky at night sailors delight.” has a scientific explaination.

        If you think you know the answer email me…
