VPN

For some things it's interesting to be connected to Novell VPN (for instance, to access some build pages). So go ahead and install the package NetworkManager-novellvpn-gnome (which will pull others like NetworkManager-novellvpn, novell-nortelplugins and novell-ipsec-tools).

After that, you have to configure the VPN connection. Left-click on NM notification icon (systray) -> VPN Connections -> Configure VPN... -> Add -> Forward. Then you should see a combo box which contains the item "NovellVPN Client". If you don't see it, you have to restart the OS or NetworkManager for the new module that you just installed, to be loaded.

Then, after you select NovellVPN Client on the combo, click Forward again. You need to fill some fields (leave the ones not mentioned as is):

  • Connection Name: NovellVPN
  • Gateway: vpn.emea.novell.com (or the corresponding to your area)
  • User Name: <your innerweb username>
  • Group Name: novell

After that, to connect: Left-click on NM notification icon (systray) -> VPN Connections -> NovellVPN. You will then be requested 2 passwords: the normal one is your innerweb's password, and the second is a global novell password, request it in the channel ;)

Getting Started

Things that each member needs to have set up


Planet

There's really not an official planet for accessibility right now, because:

  • David Bolter's one didn't have a proper top-level or 2nd level domain.
  • Recently new created www.planet-a11y.net hasn't collected all the bloggers from previous planet yet, and the admin roles have to be worked out.

In the meantime, we'll request to the LinuxFoundation the creation of planet.a11y.org as another useful redirection for the latter.
