jigdo-lite (in the jigdo-file package) is a tool for
downloading Debian CD images from any "regular" Debian package mirror
instead of one of the few and slow CD mirrors. This HOWTO explains
how to use the program for downloading images or updating existing
images to the latest version.
Problems connecting to NCBI databases may be due to the
presence of a firewall at your site, especially if you receive error
messages about the inability to connect to a dispatcher. This
document details how to configure clients to use firewalls, and how
to configure firewalls to let clients through.
This book is a collection of documents that might be useful
for people developing samba or those interested in doing so. It's
nothing more than a collection of documents written by Samba developers
about the internals of various parts of Samba and the SMB protocol.
It's still (and will always be) incomplete. The most recent version of
this document can be found at http://devel.samba.org/.
The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize the time
of a computer client or server to another server or reference time source,
such as a radio or satellite receiver or modem. It provides client
accuracies typically within a millisecond on LANs and up to a few tens of
milliseconds on WANs.
This is a book about Samba, a software suite that networks
Windows, Unix, and other operating systems using Windows' native
networking protocol. Samba allows Unix servers to offer Windows
networking services by matching the filesystem and networking models
of Unix to those of Windows. Samba acts as a bridge between the two
systems, connecting the corresponding parts of their architectures and
providing a translation wherever necessary.
VM (View Mail) is an Emacs subsystem that allows UNIX
mail to be read and disposed of within Emacs. Commands exist to do
the normal things expected of a mail user agent, such as generating
replies, saving messages to folders, deleting messages and so on.
There are other more advanced commands that do tasks like bursting
and creating digests, message forwarding, and organizing message
presentation according to various criteria.
VM comes by default with XEmacs.
VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote
display system which allows you to view a computing `desktop' environment
not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the
Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures.
