Which Linux for playing with Networking? - Page 2

post #11 of 34
Yes, sorry I got a little off topic there, like evermooingcow said, get some other boxes for it to talk to, even throw in a windows box in there and set up Samba.

Tell me how exactly a network security and penetration testing distribution of Linux with no open support is considered a good introduction distribution?

Exact opposite of distro that will have everything on by default.

I accused your statement to be false not making a flame whether it is goo or bad distro. To know how to build network you must know how to not let it be destroyed/attacked. To really learn "what does this button do" you need to know how it works from other side.

I'm really interested in playing with networking on Linux, and I want to maybe play around with a web server and some other stuff on it.
This statement indicates that he want's to play with it. Boring "all-ins" are boring.
If you cannot make BT work doesn't mean it is hard. If BT community isn't providing all that stuff public free it does not mean google will not have answers. If you cannot find answer in google doesn't mean there are none. That is all.

If you are really into Unix you won't have a GUI (CLI tools only) so by definition it won't be user friendly.

Ubuntu is well supported and user friendly out of the box so that would be my recommendation. It will run any programs found on BT or any other distro.
At long last...

It's basically just Kubuntu with utilities added to it...

I must have riled you up or something. If you want to recommend Back Track as an introduction to networking distribution go for it.

I smell trolling now. All you seem to do is repeat the same thing over and over and over again.

I agree.
Install a basic slack (or Arch, as I guess a lot of OCN'ers will advise) and build your OS from there.
Select only the tools/apps that are useful to your learning project.
