*Puts down his Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster* Yeah, I suppose it would have been easier to answer his question if he'd used the terminology and jargon we use. And been very specific in his post. Something like:
"I have permission, and what I'm trying to do is learn how to tunnel over port 80 into a computer to pen test it. Any suggestion?"
In that case, I WOULD still be temped honestly to simply google "port 80 tunneling" and paste the link like so:http://www.google.com/search?client=ope ... afe=active
I guess part of the frustration I see, is when the exact same questions are asked over and over, without the poster having done a quick google search or even better, looked through the multitude of thread titles for something that might be applicable and done a little reading. Wow... that sounds a bit grumpy of me, could be due to the fact I'm off the back meds. :/
I think for the most part, the vast majority of questions I see asked are answered fairly quickly if possible, and generally with some good links for followup for the poster. I've lurked around other forums, and I would have to say ours is rather friendly, and I don't feel the need to watch for port scanning on my comp after I make a post that not everyone would like
. But no, I agree with Bill and Don both. We SHOULD be polite and helpful, but I also think that taking time to think out a question fully, do a little personal research, and word it as to be clear is a responsibility of a poster as well. We all have responsibilities, and we should live up to them.
