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 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

ping: socket: Operation not permitted

openroot# w

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


w: proc size mismatch (8480 total, 1064 chunks): No such file or directory

openroot# last | head

openroot ttyp0 Fri Jun 27 00:39 still logged in

openroot ttyp0 Fri Jun 27 00:17 - 00:23 (00:06)

openroot ttyp1 Wed Jun 25 02:55 - 02:55 (00:00)
