Submission + - HOWTO Peer-to-Peer VPN Windows XP

pc1oad1etter writes: I want to set up a secure VPN between two Windows XP boxes, but I want to see better security than what PPTP provides.

A couple of options have emerged: Now for some questions:

  • What pitfalls should I watch out for with TheGreenBow or OpenVPN?

Submission + - Open source apps vendor drops attribution goes GPL

Anonymous Coward writes: "Open source applications vendor, Alfresco, has dropped its MPL+Attribution license and elected to go 100% GPL. While infrastructure companies like Red Hat and MySQL have long pursued such a license strategy, Alfresco becomes the first commercial open source vendor to completely GPL its enterprise content management application. The company's license model is very similar to Red Hat's RHEL/Fedora model. The move comes after months of sometimes rancorous debate as to whether MPL+Attribution constitutes an approved OSI license or not. It remains to be seen how Alfresco competitors like Microsoft Sharepoint and Documentum will respond to an innovative, enterprise-class ECM system...that just so happens to be free."
