Now i really realize that why Pakistani IT people are not being able to get growing opportunities in their careers. Brothers the problem is that I am currently wokring on the MAJOR Migration of a bank from Windows to Linux .I know how to work on Pico and Vi but the Network and System Administrator of Our Client are using Windows for last 7 to 8 years(they dont know what vi and pico is ).As I really want to clear one thing is that to use Pico or VI is not a big thing or achievement.If u really want to support Open Source or Want to have Open Source Environment on Workstation Site YOU have to "Think out of the Box " .As I gave hint in my post Novell is doing good work but no really get to the topic .To install linux and to make Proxy and mail server execute at home is not a big issue(because help is there even you only need to copy and paste things: ) ) but to migrate from Windows to linux is a big hurdle and providing same features as they are using currently you could imagine how difficult the task
Thanks anyways

I agree with you but what you are giving to Open Source ?

Migrating Bank from M$ Windows to Linux is the part of your Job if you get hired by a Company then they made a mistake because you are not able to solve the problem by your self they should hire some one better then you :)

No Hard Feelings :)

The real problem is after Migration .Who will be giving Tech Support to them? If they Constantly need Tech Support from us then it will cost very much and if they hire our team then what about the Guys who r working there .They are not Linux lovers .we want to migrate in such that the guys there easily grasp it and keep the bank running smoothly .For ur kind information they did not hire me for this purpose .I am working on security side in my company .They know my expertise are more on Cisco Side rather then Linux side but this project giving me exceptional experience like how to plan ,desgin and then the last Part Implement the Project .How to manage it? On what matters i have to think a lot ? U can say its a learning carve for me.Thats why i am giving extra time to it : )

Dear Muhammad Nasim,
yep Facts are hard, but hard work can break all the hurdles. >> :arrow: >

Also it’s great that you are involving in “live-project”, keep striving, almost every user start with some frustration, the dedication and will to win is only required to access the root (#).
Have a more googling, as I often say: “the beauty of Linux is its CommUnity” so surf well known Linux Forums,
e.g. http://www.linuxquestions.org/
Explore the case studies of Open Source migrations, analyze your preferred OS-Platform, it’s availability, services in corporate sector etc, you may get a overview @

Hell of information is on net, keep searching & smiling :wink: :lol:

I am really sorry. but there is no tool to configure squid from GUI. I belive you can use Webmin which is a webbased tool it will allow you to manage many services from web.
