KLUG Meeting Dec. 13th 2016

The group remoted into the ClearOS server that we are setting up for our network lab.  Working from a terminal on a Linux laptop we used the SSH protocol and learned the how to login remotely.  We then created group and user accounts using command line tools.  We will be expanding the network in future meetings with a variety of physical and virtual machines with a both microsoft and linux software.

The public is welcome to join us at our weekly meetings we welcome both novices and experts!

FLOSS Presentation

Scot Henderson made another great presentation at our weekly KLUG meeting.  The topic, FLOSS or Free Libre Open Source software was very interesting and informative.  We learned the difference between Free and non-free software in the GNU/Linux world.  Scot introduced us to vrms (virtual Richard M Stallman); https://scottlinux.com/2014/02/19/find-non-free-software-installed-on-your-debian-machine/ … an apt that will detect any non-free software on a Debian system.  Scot also demonstrated a little C programming using the editor, VIM – http://www.vim.org/
