Getting banned

Posted 04-23-2010 at 04:39 PM by Mr-Bisquit

I keep getting banned from different forums. Notice the active tense.
On the bright side, I don't think that many of them understand networking.

Intercepting IP packets using Netfilter hooks

Posted 04-22-2010 at 11:26 PM by yaplej

Netfilter hooks are very useful when you wish to intercept, and modify IP packets inside a kernel module.

One great thing about using Netfilter hooks over say dev_add_pack() is that the bad L2 frames, and bad IP packets get filtered out earlier in the network stack so you only deal with good packets.

Now the whole point of the Netfilter hook is to customize what the kernel does with the packets received by the system so here is an example hook function. It simply...

Charles Chaplin's "The Great Dictator"

Posted 04-22-2010 at 07:22 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

No need to say it's simply a MASTERPIECE.
Once more it's a beautifully placed sudo wall.

If you never watched this movie, I strongly suggest you to see it. Especially for the speech in the final part. As well as I suggest you to see other movies by Charles Chaplin. They are all full of such a simple thing we are losing now. A thing that can be a way to new, better life on Earth.

Troubleshoot DHCP

Posted 04-22-2010 at 02:35 PM by Mr. ameya sathe (Tantra Yantra Swatantrya)

Although your DHCP Server has been configured to assign a new IP address to a network machine;your DHCP client will retain its old IP address.
In such a case; clean out the Leases file on the DHCP Server and the DHCP Client side.

On Server side;
Code:
echo "" > /var/lib/dhcpd-*/dhcpd.leases
On Client side;
Code:
echo "" > /var/lib/dhclient/dhcp.eth0.leases
