With all of the changes to our user interface, we hope you will share even more feedback, both positive and negative.

What makes RangeForce different from other learning platforms?
Rangeforce is a cloud based gamified learning space that is focused on real life hands-on practical learning experience.
Can I create content on your platform?
Yes, we are more than happy to have new content on our site and even have a person who specifically deals with content management. Please let us know, what exactly you have in mind, by writing an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Who can train on your platform?
We currently support 3 learning tracks with 100+ topics to support continuous learning for SOC, DevOps, WebApplication Security teams.
Can I use your system with my laptop?
Yes, you can start your selected mission in any computer that has a web browser and network connection a minimal of 3 Mb/s to get the most out of the experience.
Can I use keyboard shortcuts during module completion?
Yes, you can, but not all of them. Currently you’re not able to use
Alt+Tab, because it’ll switch between your local machine’s windows instead of the virtual machine’s. Use
How can I copy and paste within my module using keyboard shortcuts?
In order to copy data within the module use the well known
Ctrl+C keyboard shortcut.
Now, if you wish to paste previously copied data to a terminal within your lab you should use either
Shift+Insert keyboard shortcuts. Everywhere else the ordinary paste (
Ctrl+V) combination works.
I’m a beginner. What should I learn first?
There are various paths you can take, but if you’re new to our system we advise you to start by taking the “Introductory mission” to get more familiar with the system and then continue with more complex missions.
Can I skip missions and go straight to the siege?
Yes, of course! Siege is meant for more advanced users who want to test their skill set with other same field specialist. If you’re one of them go straight to the battle field.
Do I have to complete all the missions?
No, you don’t. Although some of the missions are linked as a track you can easily skip the parts you’re more experienced in and move to a mission less known to you.
Can I access my missions or siege offline?
No, unfortunately you can’t. Since the system runs in a virtual environment and is cloud based you need to have internet connection to get access to the machines assigned to you during your learning process.
I accidentally crashed my server. What should I do now?
Don’t worry! Every mistake is a step closer to greater knowledge. The easiest way is to go back to user hub (rangeforce.com), end your mission manually and start from the beginning.
I didn’t find my question here, what should I do now?
No worries. Until we get our community environment up and running you can always write to us. Check contacts here.
What’s the difference between a training module and a siege?
A training module is meant for learning new hands-on practical skills with supporting theory alongside it. Training modules are suitable for users who wish to learn something new at their own pace and time.
A siege is for more advanced users who want to test out their skills and knowledge compared to other specialists working in the same field. Traditionally, RangeForce has run CyberSieges onsite. That has become a challenge during COVID-19 and we are responding by creating a series of online competitive sieges that will be launching in the spring and summer of 2020.
