General Software Discussion / Re: Best free firewall for Windows?
« on: October 23, 2009, 08:51 PM »
Lashiec I hope you are not making fun of me by offering WF as asolution, because I said that my budget is tight this year. I see no shame involved with being under funded nowadays.

I used Comodo for a week for testing, but that would not count as using really. It was good for what it was I guess. But once i found out about the practices of the company(adware installation) I gave up since then.

Have you seen this one before ?

Not to rain on your parade, but mail-in rebates?? Mail-in rebates have to be one of the worst possible deals for consumers.


Word up.

Also for couple of dollars I would not give my personal information to people-companies who have no place of getting them in the first place.

I also think that Gvim`s color syntax customization is superior to anything out there if you put your time into it. There is not any limit to it really.
Isn't VIM's highlighting scheme based on regular expressions, rather than proper lexing?
Which, btw, is the case with EditPadPro's highlighting scheme.

Sorry, I guess my claim was too ambitious. I have not used any of those commercial editors out there including EditPadPro.

I have used PsPad, Notepad++, Programmers NotePad, Editra etc. None of those satisfied my needs really(customization mainly). All are powerful and great. But when it comes to customization Gvim is the king in my view.

I use Python for some spesific application scripting and programming. So most of the libraries come from these applications and are not system wide things. That is why having ability to customize the colors or autocompletion properly was a big deal for me.

Phew ... I wonder if there is one thing that EmEditor or UltraEdit can but Vim can't ...  :-*

At what cost, though? Between spending $20 on a text editor and 2 years on figuring out the basics of (g)vi(m), I'n not even hesitating :)

I've approached it on several occasions. I decided not to bother anymore when I saw this image in the Wikipedia article on vi:
 (see attachment in previous post)
Note the placement of colon: somewhat awkwardly on the numeric row, but does not require the Shift key. On most keyboards today it does - and that's not convenient.

(I also take issue with the whole host of commands that take a repeat count argument. Vi(m) manuals love to elaborate on those, but how often do you count characters before you delete them? There's something to be said for Shift+nav keys selection! Of course one is free not to use those peculiarities, but then one would be sing vi as a more-or-less standard Windows editor. And for that, TextPad et al are better, because they are "more standard", if you will.)

Well, you asked :) I won't speak ill of (g)vi(m) again!

You can customize all of that in Vim. I use Vim day and night and none of my setups are the ones that  come by default with Vim or Gvim. Vim is very very configurable. There are not many tools out there that can use multiple keys as shortcuts to invoke commands or do somethings. I am a shortcut freak and I found the heaven in Vim. The only drawback of Vim is that it cannot handle couple keys so well (like , ,.)  due to different terminal emulation modes it needs to satisfy on different platforms.

I also think that Gvim`s color syntax customization is superior to anything out there if you put your time into it. There is not any limit to it really. Most editors I have used in the past offered menu based customization, but the problem with that approach  is that if something is not in the menu you cannot really change it. That is not the case with Gvim.

I already mentioned that in my first post:) The main problem with UE`s console is that it does not work that great. I think it is just redirecting a console output. It works ok for simple stuff.  For more complicated stuff it is no use, things like file-folder name completion, or ssh wont work due to the way it works.

"Pseudo-terminal will not be allocated because stdin is not a terminal."

There is an annoying thing about this plugin though. Everytime I restore the TC window(from background) the console window comes in full which covers the whole TC area. Does anyone else have the same issue?


thanks for the little tutorial, I got it working. Not bad!

I did try all those plugins for TC but none of them worked for me in the latest beta including the link you have included. Do  you know how to make any of them work?


I am looking for an explorer replacement tool that comes with embedded console. I realize that I use console command line quite a bit and I do not like end up having massive amounts of console windows around. So maybe having one explorer replacement with console window might help me little bit. I am actually hoping that I can also use Cygwin bash console with it as well.

I am aware of the massive explorer replacement thread which I have been following but I do not remember if any of them offered real embedded console. I know couple had some implementation but they seem to capture the console output and redirect it that did not work that great at all times like Ultraexplorer. it is a nice one but the latest version has performance issues.

Vim :) There is a syntax file for Ahk as well. I am sure you can use one of the language files for Ahk indenting.

Hey guys

I have found this awesome tutorial that lets you access and map shared drives on another distant(or local) computer over SSH tunneling. It actually worked for me :)

You can then use any syncing application to sync your files.I already have Openvpn network(thanks 4wd and shades) but having one more option is always good incase one fails when you are away from your network.

I normally was using Winscp, Tunnelier or straight console to access copy files when Vpn was not available. But thing is that, that way synicng application does not work. When you have a mapped drive then any good folder syncing application would get things going. And this is probably as good as those sftp drive mapping softwares.

Hmm come to think of I might be able to map my website`s ftp server as well. I will try it today.

I do not know if it make sense but I have been using ssh with openvpn when I am outside because my vpn ip does not change and it is easier to remember vpn ip then my public ip. Open vpn+ssh has been fun. Thanks for all the support and great help

thanks for the recommendation but I cannot figure out how to use it. Is this something that goes along with Putty or a toally seperate tunneling app?

I have been setting up some ssh tunneling, seems to be working fine. But I am afraid I will end up running alot of putty sessions to cover all. What would be the proper way to run all these different sessions nowadays?

There is also this one but it has not been updated for long time. I am guessing that it is dead software

I love Vimperator more than any other FF extension. It has some learning curve but if you are a Vim user this is the deal.

I have Ubuntu as part of my triple boot, I also use it under Virtualbox. So like Ubuntu as well but Cygwin offered  seamless integration for certain tools like ssh. I can use Ubuntu under Vbox but the problem was that making the real networking seemed painful to me. You can connect to internet but that is pretty much it. I could not make ssh server under Ubuntu-Vbox work so I installed Cygwin and that solved my problem.

I just tried portable Ubuntu, it seems like it has similar speed like Vbox installation. But it seems like you can neither change network settings nor enable disable services at least in the admin guis. Do you know if that is a limitation?

Shades, you do not need to install Cygwin for that one though. It is just Ssh tunneling and diverting. I am sure it would work with Ubuntu as long as Ubuntu can runa legit Ssh server in Windows shell.

I personally like Cygwin because I can use all the cool command line tools. I even moved my email to Mutt and some of internet browsing to Elinks. I am also an ardent user of Vim so using Vim under Cygwin is great too. I can also use Cygwin to compile apps alongside with MinGW

To me Cygwin really offered great tools including relatively simple SSH install. Now I have a full SSH setup alonside with Openvpn as you guys helped me with it.

The tunneling thing sounds interesting, would it be possible to send it to me as well?
Try this one

by using this technique I could connect to my main desktop computer(through my laptop) and all of its drives that are normally not shared.

Perhaps the mutt email client?

Yes Mutt is amazing. You can also use getmail or fetchmail under cygwin

I just managed to reinstall all the keys  and make it work. The main problem with my xp64 could have been the fact that I tried to install the portable Vpn first. My initial impression is that that really did not play nice on the xp64. Unistalling and installing the latest beta seems to resolve the issues(again) Now both clients can see eachother. Thanks for the lead!

Is it ever possible to share a folde on Vpn but not on lan? I mean for example I would like to sahre some folders just on vpn network. I guess if that is not possible I will just use ssh for that kind of stuff.  Somewhere I saw that the tunneling from one machine to another machine was possible over ssh.

thanks again guys!

Shades I think your suggestion goes beyond my knowledge fo these matters so I will stick to 4wd`s solution :)


Do I need to recreate keys for servers and clients everytime I add a new client? Because I did not, I did just create the client2 key and did that build dh thing and copied the original ca.crt(from thr server) file to the client.. It is not connecting. The only thing is that client2 is a xp64, and I know 64bit network drivers are tricky. Also I am in the middle of something and I have not restarted my computer this time.

I tried to find some info about sharing my already shared network drives on Openvpn but I could not. Is it possible to access shared folders(on another comp on the network) on Openvpn? I just do not want to install the server on every machine.
