If you’re a frequent Skype user, you might have noticed that Skype keeps a record of all events including instant messages, calls, file transfers and SMS all stored and accessible from the Conversation tab by clicking on the Show History button.

Deleting the chat and call history in Skype is easy, but the Delete History option is buried inside Skype menus. All you need to do is choose Tools > Options, go to the Privacy tab and hit the ‘Clear History’ button.

In the following tutorial, I will explain how to set up a PPTP VPN server on RHEL/CentOS 5, so that you can use it to browse the internet. So, if you have a RHEL/CentOS 5 dedicated server in US, you will be able to access US only sites.

A set up like this also has other benefits. Since the connection between the server and your computer will be encrypted, your ISP wont be able to intercept or track your internet usage.

Installation and Configuration

Ok, so lets get started. First make sure that you have ppp installed.

yum install ppp

In my case it was already installed, so I got the message ‘Package ppp – 2.4.4-1.el5.x86_64 is already installed’.
