LogMeIn

Presentation Overview:

This talk will look at LogMeIn’s set of web based remote administration tools and how they can be used for desktop support and remote access in the absence of a VPN. While LogMeIn IT Reach will be the basis for the demonstrations, the capabilities of LogMeIn Free will also be extensively investigated.

About Karl:

Karl became interested in computers at a young age when he discovered that his family’s 33Mhz i486SX was capable of playing games. By the time he was 13, Karl had already begun learning about the more technical aspects of the computer he was tinkering with. This was probably most evident the night he accidentally deleted the DOS 6.22 Operating System from the family PC and then desperately tried to use XTreeGold to recover the system before his father got home and discovered what he had done. (Lets just say things did not go well for him.)

Topic: “Trade-Offs in Building Entire Networks in Software”

Topic Summary:

Untangle, an open source software company, has developed a virtualization platform for packaging and delivering networking applications that make it easier for businesses to adopt open source software. In this presentation, Untangle’s Founder/CTO, Dirk Morris, will lay out a new model for deploying software at the network gateway to overcome the challenges of running multiple applications (firewall, IPS, VPN, Spam Blocker, Spyware Blocker, Web Filter, etc.) on standard x86 based hardware. Dirk will present an insider’s look at the tradeoffs Untangle made when designing a virtual network and tricks learned in
maintaining high performance between competing applications running on the same system.

James Burgett, Alameda County Computer Resource Center (ACCRC):
“Free Software, The Environment, Social Welfare, and the Digital Divide”

James will recount the path ACCRC has taken as it’s grown in the last five years to reclaim and reuse computers, peripherals, and other electronic devices people donate. In general, ACCRC gives computers to individuals and worthy organizations without charge or strings. ACCRC uses Linux on the systems it gives away and has developed quite a bit of expertise in installing various Linux distros on various (old) hardware.
