My brain is a Jelly Doughnut

Posted 05-15-2015 at 02:33 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Ok, so that's not *precisely* what he said.

Today it occurred to me that it's scary how easy BGP and ESP are to configure...on OpenBSD...and by proxy, pfSense.

There exist other network vendors (I dare not mention in name, lest they haunt my sleep tonight), for whom configuring ESP is the equivalent of stapling your tenders to a ceiling fan and then turning it on high.

TL;DR: Ouch.

That's enough for today.

Make a bash script recognize bash aliases

Posted 05-12-2015 at 05:16 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 05-12-2015 at 05:22 PM by the dsc (mismatched tags)

Say, if you have a script that would take as a parameter something that you have aliased, it wouldn't work.

I mean:

$ ./script.sh myalias whatever else
/home/dude/scripts/script.sh: line 3: myalias: command not found



In order to make it work, the said script must include:

Code:
shopt -s expand_aliases
source ~/.bash_aliases
(Or wherever your aliases are set, which would preferably be...

CruxEX (CRUX 3.1) with LXDE and kernel 4.0.2-x86_64-cruxex

Posted 05-12-2015 at 03:05 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

CruxEX 3.1 64 bit Linux Live CD/USB is based on CRUX 3.1 (latest version, released 140716), which is all Linux enthusiasts/nerds favorite OS. (CRUX 3.1 is a lightweight Linux distribution for the x86-64 architecture targeted at experienced Linux users). CruxEX 3.1 2015 uses the LXDE Desktop environment. In build 150511 I have replaced the original CRUX kernel with “my” special kernel 4.0.2-x86_64-cruxex, with support for “extra everything”.

OpenBSD AWS BGP VPN

Posted 05-09-2015 at 08:42 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 05-10-2015 at 12:11 AM by rocket357

In an earlier blogpost, I covered configuring a static AWS VPN setup with OpenBSD. I promised I'd revisit it to include the BGP (dynamically routed) version if I ever got it working.

Hi, I got it working.

**sorta** working (major emphasis on "sorta").

Let me explain...OpenBSD is a policy-based IPSEC engine. AWS operates on a route-based IPSEC engine. The major difference, in laymen's terms, is that with route-based IPSEC you can configure...
