are in a folded piece of paper that is stapled shut in a drawer in my
office. The wife set all this up.

2) Attack only the honey pot. Do not attack thelinuxlink.net or any
workstation inside my network. My network is not attached at all to the
3) Crack to destroy or deface: Do not use the honey pot to launch
attacks against anyone else. Doing so will ruin the fun for everyone
else as I will take the honey pot away.

Do we want to use the mailing list to communicate back and forth or do
we should I create a forum? I'm for the latter as we can keep
everything about the honey pot in one place. Are there any cons against
Finally, here is the IP address: 22.214.171.124.
