Open source C/C++ unit testing tools, Part 1: Get to know the Boost unit test framework
It's a no-brainer: Every software product needs a regression suite. Traditionally, unit testing frameworks have been developed by testing teams on an ad hoc basis. Not only does this make maintenance of the test suite tough, things like monitoring program execution for time/memory performance become non-portable across operating systems. Taking such considerations into account, this series introduces you to the choices available for creating sophisticated regression frameworks using open source software. This article, part 1 in the series, explains the Boost unit testing framework for C/C++-based products.

Samba on AIX
Samba is an open source, free software suite that provides seamless file and print services between Windows clients and UNIX-like platforms. It can be run on a UNIX-like platform like AIX, BSD UNIX, Linux, IBM 390 and OpenVMS. Samba uses the TCP/IP protocol that is installed in the host server. When configured, this server software allows the host machine to share files and printers and make them accessible from Windows clients.

Differentiating UNIX and Linux
Investigate the areas where UNIX and Linux converge in terms of functionality, environment, usability, and also those areas where UNIX and Linux differ. Many refer to Linux as a UNIX-like operating system. It is an open source operating system that has many of the same principles and ideals as UNIX, but it is not a true UNIX operating system like Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, and others. This article covers a range of aspects, from the core technical elements, such as kernel and filesystem support, to application tools, availability, and the differences in how to administer them.

Tunneling with SSH
Use OpenSource tools, such as Secure Shell (SSH), PuTTY, and Cygwin, to create secure connections to almost any resource you need to access. Current information on SSH tunneling and setup is fragmented and limited to specific applications, or it is written at a system administrator's level. With increasing security needs, the addition of boundary firewalls, and tightening of the number of allowed network ports, users need a method that is simple to configure, easy to operate and, above all, secure to accomplish day-to-day tasks and access the services that they have become accustomed to. This article describes the setup of a simple SSH client connecting to an AIX(R)- or Linux(R)-based SSH server that allows a typical, technically literate individual the ability to set up, configure, and operate a flexible means of tunneling data and services over the SSH service.

LDAP and the iPhone
A multitude of libraries have been written for UNIX systems. Many of those libraries have been released using open source licenses that allow a library's source code to be reused in new projects. By porting an existing library to a new platform, a developer may be able to save the time it would take to duplicate the development work to achieve the same functionality on the new platform. This is the first of a two-part article series on porting the OpenLDAP client libraries to the iOS. Part 1 walks the reader through the steps of importing the OpenLDAP source code into Xcode and building two static libraries for the iOS. Using the Xcode project created in Part 1, Part 2 will guide the reader through the creation a simple iOS application that executes basic queries to an LDAP server using the OpenLDAP libraries.

Monitoring logs and command output
Monitoring system logs or the status of a command that produces file or directory output are common tasks for systems administrators. Two popular open source tools simplify these activities for modern systems administrators: the multitail and watch commands. Both are terminal-oriented commands, which means that they are easily ported to most UNIX or UNIX-like systems because they do not depend on any specific graphical desktop environment.
