    System Linux - Audit -

    There are lots of ways to find the answer to each individual item. Some commands provide general information while others will provide very detailed information. Your reply is very difficult to parse quite like your initial post. System OS and CPU: "uname -a" Services: depends on OS, "services...

    System Linux - Audit -

    What is meant by "get all data about a system"? All hardware information? Data about used and available resources hardware and/or services? Security and/or logging implementations? The statement "get all data about a system" is to general and should be better defined to provide the correct...

    Log in issue

    Try logging in with "kali" for username. Or follow the instructions in the link below. The install probably failed to create the user account "root" because there is already one in /etc/shadow and /etc/passwd. When following the walk through it maybe worth while checking /etc/shadow for all the...

    cannot access any website, internet is fine- connection timed out

    Have you tried other connections besides bridged? What does the network look like to you your host system? Is it "Private", "Work", "Public"? This could apply a different firewall at the host level between your VM and the internet than what is applied to your host to the internet. This is...

    SCP in a script

    You don't actually supply the public key when using scp. You are going to want to supply the private key of the account being used on the destination when using "scp -i file". Or a more secure option might be to create a service like account with the only purpose and permissions to perform scp...

    Linux/|Windows disk partitions

    With Ubuntu I would use gparted to manage disk space for your Linux partitions. On windows I would use disk management. I would assign the extra space to windows before assigning the rest to Linux. Windows is pickier about disk allocation.

    VirtualBox - Can't load boot medium

    Did you rename "VirtualXPVHD" to "Windows XP.vhd"? There could be one of two things wrong. One you didn't rename the file and created a new disk.

    VirtualBox - Can't load boot medium

    Is the .vhd file something you created or a file you were given/downloaded? Did you install XP on the drive (.vhd) or are you trying to boot a vm someone else created?

    I broke my computer

    You may have to start from scratch. Every article I have read involving dual booting Windows and Linux requires Windows first. I believe this is because Windows MBR doesn't install correctly when installed after Linux. Where as GRUB will recognize both the boot directory for Linux and the MBR...

    you don't need a script to do a continuous ping in Linux. Continuous is the default. What is pong and what purpose does it serve in the script? Try "ping hostname >> ping.txt"
