General Meeting on Wednesday - 8 August 2018

The St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG) general meetings are usually on the second Wednesday of each month.

We start the general meeting with a basic session (usually focused on personal commputing); which may include either amazing graphical packages, blinking lights, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, displays of newly discovered web sites, major resolution of long standing anomalies, quantum discoveries, superb tutorials, or shifts in both time and space. Then we will have our usual quick welcome, introduction, administrative announcements, and a Questions and Answers Period. After all that, we take a break before our main event (usually focused on enterprise commputing).

Basic Session

The BASIC portion for August will be An openVPN server with an on-the-road Windows client by Andrew St. Clair

Most VPN services seem to cost money or search your packets for data. So it may be safer to roll your own VPN to work while you are on the road. This talk will give a step by step on how I set up an openVPN server in a jail on a FreeNAS server so an openVPN client on a Windows laptop can access files from afar.

Read ahead, from Wikibooks, the open-content textbooks collection that anyone can edit, about How to Protect your Internet Anonymity and Privacy/Type of Proxy Servers, with Virtual Private Networks

Read ahead, from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, about OpenVPN

This tutorial might show factors common with both personal and enterprise computing.

Main Event

The MAIN presentation for August is Tor ~ Onion Services by Lee Lammert and Chuck Doolittle

The Tor network is used by all kinds of people around the world; anyone with a need or desire to protect their online privacy. Regular Internet users who want to keep their emails private or protect their children from online predators use Tor to retain their anonymity. Citizens of countries who censor the Internet use Tor to access blocked news or social media sites, or research sensitive information on topics like AIDs or birth control that may not be available elsewhere. Journalists, bloggers, and human rights activists use Tor to protect themselves from retaliation from governments or employers. And whistleblowers use Tor to keep safe when reporting corruption.

So,. . since Tor is so great, why would anyone want to LEAVE the Tor enviornment?

Read ahead, from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, about the Tor software and anonymity network.

When examined Lee Lammert is interesting and informative.
