    Thanks a lot for replying 🙂

    you can add on and earn a CCNA: Security

    I think it would be safer to start finishing with the CCNA and then progress onto security later, but thanks for the recommendation.

    Your short-term priority should be learning the basics and getting your foot in the door somewhere

  • Thanks for the info unicityd,

    Do you think learning Microsoft Access is of any use? (I have an old book and was wondering whether I should take a look at that.

    Oh and going back through your replies, does TCP/IP first edition talk about how network traffic goes from a local network to another?

    Thanks again, 🙂

    Oh and does anybody know if…[Read more]

  • Oh yeah, when you said I have to learn about databases, do you mean knowing SQL commands is enough?

    And is ok to be able to read shellcode or should I be skilled enough to write it too?

    Thanks again

  • @ziggy

              Thanks for that account into your pen-tester life. It helped me to get a better idea of what a pen-tester does.  🙂

    It’s an incredibly fun job for the most part.

    🙂

    I don’t know if anyone is raking in millions of dollars from pentesting alone.

    Does anybody know if this is even possible?

    Anyway, good luck with your studi…

  • @dragongorge

                        Thanks for sharing your wisdom. I found your post pretty useful 🙂

    And I don’t mean to learn actual pen-testing on the forum but the path  to go about it AKA “The path to hacker mastery” 🙂
    can hopefully be learned.

  • Hi guys…….

    I just nearly finished my reply to this when I experienced a power cut…………………….:(

    Unfortunately, I lost ALL my data once again. I thought I saw the worst when I lost my data the last time…:(

    Anyways, thanks for the advice everyone  🙂

    I appreciate constructive criticism so you don’t have to worry about me…[Read more]

  • @ the ethical hacker community

    Does anybody know about the requirements of C| EH?

    Please also tell me about learning metasploit and how it works.

    Also mention the other certification likely to land one as a junior pen-tester….

    Thanks everyone for your help    🙂

  • @ajohnson

                      Thanks. I checked out half.com and it looks pretty good.
    Which do you think would be cheaper? Half.com or the used books on Amazon? (No, I don’t mean the one’s in really bad condition) 🙂

    @ziggy

    Much of what you’re asking about gaining access to multiple systems depends heavily on how a system or environm…

  • Thanks everybody, I feel that with every post I’m closer to my dream..:)

    I just have a few doubts to clear:

    @ajohnson

    Thanks, I will look into that. Do you know any sites where I can buy cheap books without a credit card?

    @ziggy

    Sorry, for the confusion created….From the posts, I’m guessing that the Operating systems that you mentioned are…[Read more]

  • @ajohnson

    Thanks but, is there any place where I can get the printed version(not e-books) of cheap books?
    And thanks for the book suggestions too.

    @ziggy

    If I have to learn Windows server(I don’t need to learn about the Windows OS then?) than do I have to learn about Linux servers too? (Most of the book suggestions here are for the Linux OS…[Read more]

  • @ unicityd

    This is most of what I could remember of my original post(which is no longer here.:()

    Before I address your reply, I would like to thank all of the members who helped me. And a special thanks is due to unicityd (your posts have almost EXACTLY what I’m looking for)

    Thanks for the advice, it was comforting to read…

    I’ve changed the time logged in from 60 to 0. And I checked the Always logged on checkbox….Am I free from danger now?

    @deadpool  Thanks! I love this community. All the members are SO helpful.

  • Thanks, everyone.

    I made a stupid blunder again.

    I typed a HUGE message (a reply ) that took me hours to think about and type and when I clicked reply it took me to the login page(I knew there was something suspicious when I left the “Time logged in check box ticked at 60 mins……..:()

    Now is there ANYWAY to retrieve that message? Or am I…[Read more]

  • Thanks for your statement but I expressed my regrets because the last post I had posted was deleted. (@haybusa)

    Anyways, sorry for the misunderstanding.(@deadpool)

  • Oh and I also would like to know if the info sec experts out there
    approve of the following approach recommended?

    http://www.infiltrated.net/pentesting101.html

    Do you feel this is the best method or is there any changes or anything to add to this list?

    Thanks for your contributions.

  • Sorry, deadpool.

    But, I didn’t know how to create a new thread until recently so that’s why I posted on your thread.

    No offense meant.

  • Ok thanks,

                  Do you know any follow up books to read after that? Please answer my other 2 questions also.

    Awaiting your wisdom……..

  • Oh OK thanks.  🙂

    But a more clear list would help me more. So could anyone please help clarify the answers

    I’m rephrasing the questions a bit.

    1) Which certifications would help me to get a job as an ethical hacker?

    (Other than C| EH)  (I know that you said that there’s no ‘right’ way but if you mentioned some certifications then I could c…[Read more]
