Hello Ubuntu Community !
Noob in need of some advice. ( Please tell me if this is the wrong section and where I should post this )
I know little about VPS and Ubuntu so a "computer guy" will set it up for me. I would like to get some advice about the stealth side of things.
I want to get a couple of fixed IP VPS's running Ubuntu and use them only to access a couple of websites stealthily and I have been told that a VPS running Ubuntu would be best way to do this.
What is the best way to set up a VPS to make it appear to the outside world that it is a "normal" computer and not a server ?
I also want to be able to gain access to the VPS from my laptop via a dial up connection at times, I know it will be slow but I don't need to spend much time it - Could I access it with dial up ?
I have been told to use CentOS 5 and install GNOME along with FireFox and RealVNC server for remote access. Are there any other options for remote access ?
Is there a specific desktop environment that would be the better choice for stealth?
Do I need to do something about the ports that are open or used to disguise the fact that its a server ?
Can anyone advise what else I should do to disguise the fact that its a server ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated ! - Thanks!
