simple traffic monitor/firewalls
Under windows I had a little network picture which would show up in my
system tray on the taskbar whenever I was on the internet. It showed 2
computers linked and whenever there was traffic either to of from my pc the
small monitor screen icons would turn blue, indicating activity.
Now I have no firewall under linux I would like to have some way of at least
monitoring traffic throughput as I surf the net. Does anyone know if there
is any small utility that can do this under woody.
Also can anyone advise me of a good book on installing debian woody and
getting it set up as secure as possible for a beginner. I dont care if at
first I understand nothing of what is being said as long as I knew that I
had my setup secured well BEFORE i begin trawling the net trying to find
info. Because I am so new I find all the terminology daunting. I have
downloaded several books from the debian site and printed them off and have
brought a couple of huge volumes on linux. But for the moment I dont want to
know every single console command, all I wish to get is a good general text
i.e. Where are the alarmd logs kept? I've searched but cant find them. MAybe
not trying hard enough but I only have so much time a day to dedicate to
linux and I'd like to be able to know what should I be looking at /for and
what is irrelevant at least for a while. A good beginners book?
Under Win2K I know where to look for log info etc and if I dont I know where
to find out what I need to be looking for...as long as Bill wants me to
Does linux have like index.dat files??
Any help appreciated.
