Make your Windows Mobile phone nag you about unread messages

Make your Windows Mobile phone nag you about unread messages

I like to use the text messages from Google Calendar to create my on-the-go todo list. Problem is, I don’t always read them. Posting on HowardForums, dan24 suggested a program called DontForget, which keeps nagging you until you read that unread text message, email, or other notifications – Link

    I’ve been doing this for years with my Linux server, Smoothwall firewall router, and XP desktop and it works great. I suggest that you move SSH off of port 22 if you can, it will decrease the number of bots that try to brute force your host. Attacks against my SSH server dropped from about 400/day to maybe 1/month after I set it to listen on a non-standard port. Also be sure to disallow root logins and only allow SSH2 traffic in your sshd_config.

    I agree…changing the port is a much better strategy for securing the tunnel.

    Matt, have you ever used this same setup to then do revierse or server-to-client port forwarding?

    i.e.- My tunnel is established from work-to-home over SSH via putty. I then want to be able to connect from my home-to-work back over the established tunnel with RDP. I toyed around with using the the remote Putty Port forwarding but could not seem to get this to work. Any experience with this?

    Just for info, I’ve been doing this with Windows XP for years. If you try it with the standard RDP client in Vista, port 3390 doesn’t work as it’s apparently reserved for Windows Media Centre. If you try on 3390, you’ll get an error from RDC saying you’re trying to connect to your own computer which you’re not allowed to do. Change the local port in PuTTY to 3391 and you’re good to go using that port.
