That's a tough one. How would a theif break into your house? There are probably a dozen ways that you could think of in 10 minutes (Steal the keys, break a window, saw through a wall, follow you through a door, pick the lock, pose as a workman, bulldoze an opening, etc etc etc.). You're asking the same sort of overly general question. Follow John Car's advice and start with a book (Joe Park's is good, but it starts at the top and builds up from there...there are others that start nearer to ground level). That will give you a sense of perspective and allow you to narrow your questions down to something that a person could answer in less than an hour. jte -- John Earl firstname.lastname@example.org The PowerTech Group --> new number --> 253-872-7788 PowerLock Network Security www.400security.com -- +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +---
