DriveDroid acts much like a CD drive or USB drive except that it works through the mass storage capabilities within the Android or Linux programs. You’ll download the app to your phone. If there are any IMG or ISO files on your phone, connect in with your PC to use them.
You can even boot directly from the drive. It makes OS installations or repairs on the go a lot simpler. Thanks to codywarmbo for this great tip.
Some More Shortcuts
We know how much you love shortcuts for Windows, so here are a few more:
- Win + Shift + S: This enables you to select an area of the screen and lets you copy it onto the clipboard. Just keep in mind that it’s only available on the later versions of Windows 10.
- Win + Ctrl + F4: Closes any virtual desktops you might have open.
This book, fully titled Network Warrior: Everything You Need to Know That Wasn’t on the CCNA Exam takes off where the CCNA exam left off with a practical guide to network infrastructure. You’ll find detailed guides to routers, routing, switching, SOHO wireless access point designs, SOHO VoIP, intro to IPv6, telecom tech, firewall configuration, security, Quality of Service, ACL and authentication and a whole lot more besides.
This podcast is the place for self-proclaimed security nerds to discuss their work. The podcast is very laid back, so the topics change from week to week. It’s very interesting and runs for about two hours at a time. If you’re in the security industry or interested in security tech, you’ll love this podcast. It digs deep.
FreeIPA works within Linux/ UNIX environments. It’s an integrated authentication program. It combines Linux, MIT Kerberos and so on. You can use it as a centralized solution for authorization, authentication and account information. It stores data that’s needed to improve the security of a network. It’s open-source, cross-platform and cross-system. This great tip comes from skarsol.
That’s it for now – see you again next week.
