Tunneling MySQL connections through SSH

This is a description of how to set up a secure tunnel between your MySQL Server and a locally running MySQL Administrator using Putty. By creating a secure tunnel to your MySQL server using Putty, you can grant localhost access to powerful applications like MySQL Administrator while at the same time, make your server appear as if it is not even there. In effect, make your MySQL server disappear from the outside world. http://www.howtoforge.com/secure_mysql_connection_ssh_tunnel

SSH your Debian servers without password

Secure Shell is a program to log into another computer over a network, to execute commands in a remote machine, and to move files from one machine to another. It provides strong authentication and secure communications over unsecure channels. It is intended as a replacement for telnet, rlogin, rsh, and rcp. For SSH2, there is a replacement for FTP: sftp.This might be useful if you are trying to connect everytime to your server remotely. SSH your Debian servers without password

Unusual Problem

Facts:Linux version 5.10, Compaq Evo 500 series, 2.4 Ghz processor and 1 gb ramARTISAN Instruments, Inc. Sound Engine, PCI sound cardI'm new to Linux so I'm not sure how to approach this problem.  The Artisan sound engine operates using the Linux OS - has to be version 5.10 - no higher.  The sound engine is designed to send all signals thru the PCI sound card - NOT the onboard version.  I have disabled the onboard sound contoller thru the BIOS, however, I still get sounds (computer beeps tones, etc) thru the onboard sound card and nothing thru the PCI sound card.  As I understand it - the ARTISAN sound engine will only function thru the pci sound card and for this to happen the onboard sound card MUST be disabled.  It seems like Linux is controlling all the IRQ's and has routed a path to the onboard sound card only.I'm used to Windows, therefore, am somewhat blind with regard to changing settings in Linux.Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Im new to this.. Bare with me

Im new to this.. Bare with me. And Im sure this is going to sound like a stupid question, but heres my problem: I just downloaded ubuntu i386, burned the image to a disk. It starts up just fine, and I tell it to start the OS.It loads, and the first thing it asks me for is a User Name and Password. It never asked me to create one..So how do I log in?? Is there a default? The only other fourm I could find about this, said there was no root, and something about SUDO(?). Can Someone please help me?

Hi everybody.... I'm still what some would consider a Linux newbie. I've been playing around with it off and on for about 4 months but in the past few weeks I've really been getting in to trying to get AiGLX/Beryl to run. I tried unsuccessfully for about two and a half weeks before I finally got it to run last night. I'm sure it would've been alot easier if I weren't using a proprietary video card (nVidia GeForce FX 5200) and if i had not been an idiot and tried to use the old nVidia driver from the Kubuntu repo, but I think the little extra work made it just that much sweeter once I get it up and running. you can see my screenshot here...
