I am a senior at the University of Florida, and am taking a UNIX Systems
Admin course, and IBM donated 15 RS/6000 B50s for our use. The point of
the course is to learn UNIX systems administration, and one of two
operating systems that we will be using is AIX (the other is Yellow Dog
I have some questions that I'm sure someone can answer for me:
1. Is there a portsniffer for AIX? One of the points of the class is
to build a secure server (web, ftp, shell, etc)., and being able to
crack into classmates machines will be one of our challenges.
2. Where are the man pages in AIX? I did a man man, and nothing
happened. Do these even come preinstalled, or what?
3. Where can I get the latest versions of OpenSSH, SecureFTP, etc.? I
want to be rid of telnet login and be strictly ssh?
4. The shells that come with AIX are horrible. Where can I get bash
If anyone can answer these questions, I would greatly appreciate it.
