Hi everybody,

Wondering if anybody know which version of PureBasic was the last to support Windows 98?
I have a old computer I need to create a reminder software for, so didn't check right now if even PB5.70 would work?

Ok, found it myself after some checking inside Museum

Version 5.24 LTS - 30th October 2014 (lastest version with Windows 98 support)

That wont help you. Mass exploits happen automatically to use machines as zombie for a (bot)net. For that, any machine on the net is "good enough" - many are single-use throwaway resources after all.

Exactly. Botnets are the problem here. Just make sure only the VNC port is open to that machine and nothing more. Browsing today's websites with a Windows 98 PC will probably no longer work anyway because of the encryption standards. If your router is able to create a VPN for your home than it is even better to open no port at all to the Win98 machine from the internet.

I'm quit a noob on this, so for my XP system I have a image (safely on a external SDD) which in case of trouble is easy and fast to reinstal. For me there are still many reasons why I have XP in use (and waiting for Reactos to be usefull).

Yet...
Is there any PB-source which gives (a lot of) controle on these port settings.
I'de like to have something like 'a software on-off-switch' for all internet-activity (simply said : equal to disconnecting the cable). Thanks.

Found this online somewhere once. Run this batch file with admin rights. Replace "Ethernet" in all lines with your network name. Done.

Code:
@echo off
echo Please wait ... toggling internet ...
netsh interface show interface name="Ethernet" | find /i "Connected" >nul && set "toggle=DISABLE"
netsh interface show interface name="Ethernet" | find /i "Disconnected" >nul && set "toggle=ENABLE"
netsh interface set interface "Ethernet" %toggle%
echo Process completed
pause

It would be wise to just install latest Ubuntu and not risk old loopholes.
PB code should work fine on Linux with minimal gui content.

Thats a nice idea, but if Linux get a problem, im pretty much stuck. I can solve everything pretty much when deadling with Windows.
Indeed the PB code would work on linux, as the tool is only a date select/reminder/save/timer thingy.

Nice info about botnet, actually I'll only connect to it via VNC when needed I think now :-)
The rest of the time it dont really need ethernet at all.

I only mentioned Linux because I resurrected many old PC's as media servers that now have incredible uptimes and no bloat. PB automation is icing on the cake.
