Linux IPv6 NDP proxy/router

This one is For when your ISP/Datacentre decides to give you a /64 (or whatever) on your uplink and relies on NDP to route rather than just handing you a routed IPv6 block. That’s a right pain in the backside if you want to use it on the other side of your (Virtual?) firewall or…


Draytek Vigornic 132

So managed to get my hands on a VigorNIC132 which is a draytek VDSL modem/router on a PCI-E card, here’s what I know about it thus far. It’s ethernet chip appears to be a realtek and shows as Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller during lspci I believe it’s…


IPv6 proxmox OVH

More to remind me than anything else… With the help of https://forum.ovh.co.uk/showthread.php?5844-IPv6-with-Proxy-ARP Since OVH do not yet support IPv6 on Vrack (GRR!) you have to use the Servers /64 but given the horrible way they allocate it (Sorry guys but it really *IS* horrible) This assumes your server already had working IPv6, if proxmox 4.x…

pam_tally2

Pam_tally2 is an account locking module for unix that will lock out an account for to many logins, you can use programs like fail2ban/csf to block the IP if it’s a remote service and it’s supported but there are cases where you may just wish to lock out that user instead (E.g if you know the…


Internet connection records

Hell if I know if anyone is going to bother reading this but I felt it was something I Needed to say.   TLDR: Mass surveillance in the form of logging everyone’s internet activity seems like a very expensive very bad idea that’s not likely to be as useful as our government wants us to…


2015 Brewfest Meantime & Friends.

So went to the “Brewfest, Meantime and friends” event in Greenwich near the o2 and what a disappointment. This event costs over £20 to get in if you book tickets in advance not including the payment processing costs so I was expecting it to be rather sizeable, but what it actually turned out to be…
