It got more than a few Australians peeved and stirred up controversy, but the successful Dunedin, New Zealand, bid for Linux Australia's 2006 conference married slick planning and Kiwi ingenuity. The week-long conference, at the University of Otago, has attracted 500 delegates from around the world. Linux Australia president Jonathan Oxer is adamant Dunedin was an inspired choice.

The book, which is available for download from the WNDW website, covers topics from basic radio physics and network design to equipment and troubleshooting.

Tutorial: Using VNC Tunneling over SSH

There are times when you need to see what's running on another user's desktop. When you're both behind the same firewall, VNC is a good solution. But what happens when each user is behind different firewalls and you need a secure connection? Rob Reilly demonstrates how to make this happen.
