Again folks, this is very subjective, just the way I do things, it’s not written on stone 🙂
After installing antiX, the first thing I configure is sudo.
Put this line at the bottom of the file:
If you use nano,
# nano /etc/sudoers
ditto as above.
Next, aliases make my life easier,
$ nano .bash_aliases
alias adu="sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" alias agi="sudo apt-get install" alias as="apt-cache search" alias ash="apt-cache show"
logout/login and test it as USER:
Go to .nanorc and type this:
UFW (Uncomplicated Firewall)
# apt-get install ufw # ufw enable # ufw status # reboot
After coming back do another ‘ufw status’ to find out if the firewall
To avoid pinging: go to:
# nano /etc/ufw/before.rules
And leave this section looking like this:
# ok icmp codes -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type destination-unreachable -j DROP -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type source-quench -j DROP -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type time-exceeded -j DROP -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type parameter-problem -j DROP -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type echo-request -j DROP
Next, go to http://www.grc.com and click on ShieldsUp, next screen scroll down to Hot
Spots, and click on ShieldsUp again, next screen click on Proceed, next screen
click on All Service Ports and let it check the ports, gives an ok result, the
ports are neon green, and gives you this veredict:
“Your system has achieved a perfect “TruStealth” rating. Not a single packet â€”
solicited or otherwise â€” was received from your system as a result of our
security probing tests. Your system ignored and refused to reply to repeated
Pings (ICMP Echo Requests). From the standpoint of the passing probes of any
hacker, this machine does not exist on the Internet. Some questionable personal
security systems expose their users by attempting to “counter-probe the prober”,
thus revealing themselves. But your system wisely remained silent in every way.
To start your apps and window manager: go to .xinitrc as USER,
$ nano .xinitrc
#!/bin/sh firefox & setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp xsetroot -solid black unclutter -idle 2 & numlockx & exec <window manager>
I think this is about it, thanks for your patience.
