Our vpn client is one of those that takes over your machine so you're on the corp network and THAT'S IT.
Not the kinda ballgame I like to play.

even M$ peepeeteepee does that. but you could probably override it with "route" from the cmdline...

Most of the time, that behavior, on most VPN clients, can be modified by the VPN admins, or from a setting in the VPN client itself (I was able to override it when I was at AT&T...they used the Cisco VPN client...so that I could print on my local printers and access my local network).

Ummm ... does "THAT'S IT" mean that they run in non split tunnel mode, so if you go to the Internet it first routes it through their network? Or do they just shut off Internet access altogether when you're connected to the VPN?

(You know you're dealing with incompetent and paranoid security people when they follow the model of "make it secure by making it so broken that they can't do anything.")

I'd say carla did a real descend job here:

I started naming stuff as "to intuitive for me" a while ago.

It's been said that the only user interface that is truly "intuitive" is the nipple; everything else has to be learned.

No split tunnel, everything goes through the vpn.
I haven't tried setting a route myself though. I find vmware much more fun. I can just close the window and work goes away.

I'm happy to see that somebody else appreciates the idea that computers are meant to serve the humans not the other way around.

hmmm... the problem with 600 gig disks....
the machine froze on me when I attempted to suspend a vm.
So I shut it off. restarted and the raid software decided the raid array wasn't clean and is now resyncing it.
all 600 gig of it.
I wonder how it knows which one is good.
That said, the machine is still useabe, if slow because of all the disk io.

66 hours of recovery? That's a bit much for 600 gig, no?

You do know that you can cat /proc/mdstat to monitor the recovery progress, right?

yeah, that's where I got the 66 hours from.
I dunno what happened, but after about a half hour, the disk went mostly idle and the syncing went a lot lot faster, only took 3 hours total.
Wish I had run iotop!

A HA!
It turned out not to be my vm's that were holding the cd rom drive, but hddtemp.
Today I learned what fuser is. :-)
A real sysadmin I will never make.

http://etherboot.org/wiki/index.php

they've introduced gpxe, a pxe replacement, which also knows how to do DNS, HTTP and FTP instead of just the good old TFTP...

boot.kernel.org offers images to be downloaded and bootet instantly.

Great, *another* protocol that requires special boot ROM's.

PXELINUX is the right way to go. It lets you use stock PXE boot ROM's, and then it can chain load to whatever you want to do afterwards.

Subject: Recent citadel ebuilds for gentoo

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Long time no see...

But finally I take pride in presenting recently updated and polished ebuilds for libcitadel, citadel and webcit!

They are still in testing phase and currently only support citadel as main MTA, but so far they work pretty good.

Link:  http://www.citadel.org/doku.php/installation:ebuild

Feedback is welcome
