Linux dummy Testing Servers
« on: May 04, 2006, 05:10:26 AM »
Hi  all

Can anyone tell that is Linux dummy machines are available for testing purposes??, Actually I want to test new things in Linux but I dont have any testing Linux machine/server now,all are production servers  where i don't have any permission ..,  I want to keep in touch with Linux..., but due to Lack of testing Servers here i can't test new things..So if anyone knows that is these testing machines are available online,where You can login and test anything..........
(Is UNIX,LINUX or SOLARIS any testing  servers/machines are available online or on NET??)

Thanks and Regards
Gaurav

Mate, if ur lack of servers, wat u can do is download an evaluation of VMware.

Just make sure u have:
1. One powerful desktop
2. A Switch
3. An RJ45 cables
4. RS232 cable - optional
5. Vmware Workstation

And download:
www.vmware.com

I have used it to do lots of testings:
1. FIrewalling
2. Proxying
3. Mail servers
4. DNS Servers
5. VPN
6. LVS (Linux Ethernet Bonding, And other Layer 2,4 load balancing)
7. Encrypted File System
8. MRTG
9. MySQL CLustering
10. Recompiling kernels
11. DHCP Servers, LTSP, ...
12. Samba Server
13. Java application deployments

I have used this product for 2 years ++, Unix/Linux Distros tried and it works on:

1. Smoothwall
2. RH7.1, 7.3, 8, 9
3. RHEL 3, 4
4. SUSE Profesional & Enterprise
5. Gentoo
6. Slackware 8,9,10,10.2
7. Debian
8. CollegeLinux
9. Ubuntu
10. Solaris 10
11. FreeBSD
12. Fedora Core 1,2,3,4,5


It works :)

Good thing is, they distribute it for Linux & Windows

Hi Dragoncity

I have permission to connect to outside world..i.e I can ssh to any outside machine if it have a public-ip and  its ssh port is open.

Means if anyone can give me the public-ip of its machine(i.e if its connected to internet), I can login to that machine using ssh, but its only possible if someone have the dummy machine having public-ip and also  if he or she permits me:)

 :)

Anyways Thx for ur help

Gaurav
