Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol

In computer networking, Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) is a tunneling protocol used to support virtual private networks (VPNs). It does not provide any encryption or confidentiality by itself; it relies on an encryption protocol that it passes within the tunnel to provide privacy

The entire L2TP packet, including payload and L2TP header, is sent within a UDP datagram. It is common to carry Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) sessions within an L2TP tunnel. L2TP does not provide confidentiality or strong authentication by itself. IPsec is often used to secure L2TP packets by providing confidentiality, authentication and integrity. The combination of these two protocols is generally known as L2TP/IPsec.

Layer four traceroute

Layer Four Traceroute (LFT) is a fast, multi-protocol traceroute engine, that also implements numerous other features including AS number lookups through Regional Internet Registries and other reliable sources, Loose Source Routing, firewall and load balancer detection, etc. LFT is best known for its use by network security practitioners to trace a route to a destination host through many configurations of packet-filters / firewalls and to detect network connectivity, performance or latency problems.

traceroute is a computer network diagnostic tool for displaying the route (path) and measuring transit delays of packets across an Internet Protocol (IP) network.
traceroute outputs the list of traversed routers in simple text format, together with timing information

Top 5 Compression Tools for Windows

1. WinRAR is a must-have application that has the ability to replace all the other compression tools, providing support for most compression formats, including RAR, ZIP, CAB, ARJ, LZH, ACE, TAR, GZip, UUE, ISO, BZIP2, Z and 7-Zip. 

2. When compression tools became so popular, only WinRAR lived up to the challenge. But soon after it, WinZip made its appearance and proved to be a worthy adversary. It was better, faster, and more efficient.

3. In the world of compression tools, ZipGenius brings something new to the table, in comparison to its competitors (e.g. WinRar, WinZip). Its interface is extremely user-friendly, and completely different from what we already know. The menu looks as if the software is actually integrated into Windows, and you have some clearly defined options.

4. PowerArchiver is a complete archive utility for Windows that also has a file browsing feature.

5. 7-Zip is one of the best file archivers out there and probably the most important thing is that it comes with a freeware license, so there’s no need to pay for a license anymore.

How to add funny/rage faces in Facebook chat

Facebook has started using Avatar's instead of people's name in Facebook chat. You can exploit that by typing the id of a person and Facebook shows the profile picture of the user with that id. Many people have created fake profiles with funny avatars and use them. Just type the ids (inside the bracket in the image) while chatting.
