is that running on pete's machine?

Nope ... since his server is directly attached to a network with a static, public IP address with no port restrictions, it isn't necessary.

I don't trust them.
I bet if they see too much utilization, they'll do something bad.

That's about the sum of it. It may work today, but will it work tomorrow?
And of course they'll change it at some horrendously inconvenient time.

Had to install named -- that's right, ISC BIND, remember that? -- on a Windows laptop because Comcast SUCKS.

Just point to google DNS!

What's the current favorite dns server if not bind?

If you're the type of person who runs FreeBSD and qmail to show the world how 'leet you are, then you'd probably also choose TinyDNS (formerly djbdns).

Lots of thick skies this weekend, but no more rain fade for us! Back when we had DirecTV this would have been a weekend full of watching things that were already stored on the DVR. It wasn't until the end of the weekend that we realized it ... "hey, the TV has been on all weekend!" We sure do love our FiOS. :)

Right now I've got a terminal window running, watching tcpdump spit out all of the P2P traffic coursing over our Internet connection while the IGlet plays Mario Kart on the Wii in global multiplayer mode.

I'm such a nerd. :)

Oh, I so want FiOS. But NOOOOOOO, Verizon had to go and sell off the whole state right before they would have started building out here.

If you read some of the broadband forums out there, there are people who actually choose where to live based on the broadband options that are available. I don't know if I'd go to that extreme, but it sure is nice to be living in a FiOS-enabled part of the world. :)

I know this hasn't been everyone's experience, but ... in the six months we've had FiOS there have been *no* outages, and we've had the same IP address the whole time (even when I changed my MAC address).

I wouldn't want to live there either. They have Novell. And the Red Sox.

IG, cologne isn't that bad in this measure, since you can get fibre to the house in some parts of the city by netcologne, which gives you 100 mbit

I've also had good success with FiOS. They forgot to give me the network information, but I got it easily enough. Too bad the router sucks. Has anyone replaced it? I figure at the most it will just make the video on demand stop working, which I don't care about anyway (inaccessible to the blind)

Omeron: I've bypassed their router, for the most part. I had them deploy the Internet service via the Ethernet port on the fiber terminal. Then after the installer left, I immediately disconnected the router and plugged FiOS directly into my front end Linux box.

I then reconfigured their router as a three way bridge (Ethernet-MoCA-WiFi) and plugged it in to my LAN, so it's only being used to IP-enable the set top box, and to provide wireless access inside the house.

(And yes, I occasionally run Wireshark at the network edge to see what kind of traffic the set top box is exchanging with the Verizon mothership.)

Speaking of which ... I was poking around on Verizon's web site and was able to view and change the list of shows that are stored on my DVR. How can this be since I'm not using their router at the network edge? Naturally I ran Wireshark again to find out.

Someone at Verizon was wise enough to NOT rely on an inbound path to the device. Instead, the device establishes an SSL VPN to the head end, allowing connections to be initiated in either direction for whatever applications it needs to run.

(Yes, I know, this means that Verizon has an open channel into my private network, and yes, if I were a tinfoil-hatted OpenBSD type, I would put the DVR in a separate security zone. I'm just not that paranoid.)

Just you wait, when the feds need to snoop on you (or the real bad guys) verizon will offer up this option and then.... whoa... then you'll see the shit fly.

So here's a question.
If you block the outgoing ssh connection do you think they'll notice and call you up and say something needs to be repaired?
I'm thinking they're not that slick, and they're not monitoring things like that, Unelss they use that connection for billing hmm....

Ever better question. You have a ssh login to a machine somewhere on verizon's network. Must be all sorts of fun things to be poked around on, on that machine. I'm sure it's a proprietary server application running over there, and I'm equallty sure it's easy to find flaws in that you (or a real bad person) could hack...

It's SSL, not necessarily SSH. If you want to poke around, the server is at 198.23.16.149 on port 443. I haven't been able to get much out of it other than a "Service Unavailable" error.
