    RE: Zoftilo Voice Chat
    Looks interested, can't wait! Little note, maybe add video chat. That is completely up to you as you may not even think you want your software to have it. Will it be open source? I hope so :/

    RE: How do i make a VNC connection via. a Putty SSH Tunnel to CentOS?
    The "Connection has been gracefully closed" may also mean "didn't connect in the first place". [url=http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/tunneling-vnc-connections-over-ssh-howto.html]Here[/url] is a short little tutorial on how to tunnel vnc through ssh.Glad that you are securely trying to use vnc! I personally think vnc servers should implement more security.

    RE: BackTrack 5 R1 cant connect to wi fi !!!!
    Very happy to see you are checking out Linux Security distros. Backtrack is actually what brought me to Linux in the first place. Backtrack 5 is NOT the latest "BackTrack" distribution. Offensive Security (The company that made BackTrack) found that BackTrack, being based off Ubuntu, limited the potential so they swtiched to the new operating system (which I have tested and love) [url=http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ved=0CC4QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.kali.org%2F&ei=RHGpUZXuEs394AOSloDYBg&usg=AFQjCNFfm5ANkAP_AJsm3uTO9yfRrOgQZQ&bvm=bv.47244034,d.dmg]Kali Linux[/url]. I had wifi issues with Backtrack 5 R1 which was fixed by R2 but Kali Linux should have the latest wifi drivers. One issue as goingeasy stated is that BackTrack and Kali Linux usually come with wifi off. If there is a wifi button on your laptop try pressing it. I went through hours of frustration once trying to fix my wifi to come to the relization that I just had to press the wifi button. I hope this has helped.

    RE: USB wi-fi adapter?
    What did you do before you got that message? Also for wireless issues you may want to check out [url=http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ndiswrapper/index.php?title=Main_Page]ndiswrapper[/url]

    RE: linux mail server
    Mail servers are not really known for being easy to configure and not for beginners. If you decide to set one up I suggest Postfix (it is easier to configure than sendmail) and also reading a lot of man pages. Try to practice what you read, not just read it.

    RE: USB wi-fi adapter?
    I am glad to hear your problem was solved. For future reference I have always found this wireless card compatible and have always used it when I have wireless issues. Sadly I have not found good resources that link people to compatible wireless cards, but I hope one day every card will be compatible. Here is the link: http://support.netgear.com/product/WG111v3
