Openroot

Want to play on a FreeBSD box? Check out OpenRoot, "a FreeBSD 4.8-stable box in which root access is given to everyone... OpenRoot is essentially a virtual machine (a jail in FreeBSD terminology) running ontop of FreeBSD." You can access openroot.no-ip.org on ports 30 and 31 TCP using secure shell. Log in as user 'openroot', password 'openroot', and then 'su -' with no password. However, it doesn't appear that 'root' users have a full working environment:


openroot# ping www.google.com

ping: socket: Operation not permitted

openroot# w

12:40AM up 1 day, 14:13, 1 user, load averages: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
