Cacti Win32 setup info in book "Wireless Hacking"

#1 Post by mikemee » Wed Jan 05, 2005 12:58 am

This is either a shameless plug for a book, or part of the growing recognition that Cacti is getting, or both :-).

I recently authored a couple of chapters in a new O'Reilly/Syngress book called Wireless Hacking. I included 22 pages on how to setup Cacti (0.8.6) and all its required programs on a fresh install of Windows XP. Its in Chapter 7, "Monitoring Your Network". I spent quite a lot of time on this trying to get the steps into a logical and minimal order (and found a few gotchas that I posted to the forums at the time).

I hope this is useful to the Cacti community in some way. I wish I could make the content available directly here via a pdf or similar, but unfortunately it was "work for hire" and I no longer own the copyright.

You can find it here on Amazon (includes referer link which help funds our non-profit work): ... freenet-20

cheers, michael
