We are pleased to announce the results of the Radmin Quest, held to celebrate SysAdmin Appreciation Day 2015.
The contest was held from July 31 to August 04, 2015. The Quest participants were asked to work out the name, login and password for a remote computer, connect to it using Radmin, and send in the key displayed on the remote computer.
Kirill Smirnov from the city of Yaroslavl was the first to complete the quest, winning the ultimate prize: an SSD Kingston SV300S37A 240 GB. Kirill shared his impressions about the quest: "…I plunged into IT adventure. Logic suggested the correct address of the server. Practice in computer hardware disassembly helped to define login. Brain offered hundreds of possible answers to the riddles, puzzles of password. After a few hours of brainstorming, I was lucky to connect and to get the secret key! It turned out I sent the first secret key. I am very glad that I won. Thank you for this cool quest!"
Fabio Valentim from the city of Recife, Brazil was selected at random from the rest of the participants to receive the WESTERN DIGITAL My Passport Ultra 1TB external HDD. Fabio was the 16th person to complete the Quest, and this proved to be his lucky number. "To find out ip address was really easy but, to guess the password...it was very hard for me but racking brain I could guess. To discover the login wasn't so hard, because I know HD parts, I just needed to find what letters reference matches with the manufacturer!" – said Fabio Valentim.
Despite numerous attempts to connect, only a few dozen participants managed to complete the Quest and fulfil all of the terms and conditions of the contest. They will receive a single Radmin standard license.
