Testing TOR Onion Routing

October 24th, 2013

I've installed tor from the OpenBSD ports on my workstation Jupiter. Tor is an anonymizer service for HTTP and HTTPS. I'm gonna give this a go for a few hours, days, weeks, months or so depending how I feel about it.

Mars (G4 Cube) has been donated to the OpenBSD project

October 23rd, 2013

A developer of OpenBSD will be taking care of this box when I send it to him (probably leaving my doors saturday). All in all I'm very happy to have found a good home for this computer.

Got the Soekris

October 19th, 2013

I got the soekris but I won't have time this weekend to install anything on it. I also don't have pictures yet, those will follow next week some time. I will name this soekris Venus from now on.

Deutsche Telekom

October 17th, 2013

The DT made a poll whether users want freedom or security.

My answer would be, I want freedom, as I'm already using ultra secure platforms and don't need inhibited functionality of the Internet. But then again I'm not a DT customer...but let this opinion stand for my ISP's that I'm using!

Network Rearrangement in 2 Weeks

October 15th, 2013

On April 25th, 2013 I created a small network map that detailed how I intend to use my IPSEC tunneling host over wifi. Well the network has grown. I have Vodafone LTE and M-Net DSL as my Internet links and Venus (the ordered Soekris) which will help me redo my network. Here is the updated map:

So what I plan on doing is create 2 rdomain routes (an openbsd thing) from uranus to venus for 2 gif tunnels. One will go over 5 Ghz and the other over 2.4 Ghz. The routing is decided with OSPF over the gif tunnels and should fail over when the AREA 0 fails (area 0 will be 5 Ghz tunnel, which is my preference). From Venus itself the M-Net DSL link will have a static route, this ensures that I only send through the LTE link when I flip the route manually, a safe feature since I use 5-10 times as much bandwidth on the DSL link than the LTE link (that link is backup only). I hope it works out as I have envisioned it, but it can change minutely or even in big ways.

Ordered a Soekris

October 15th, 2013

I have ordered a Soekris 6501-70 router for home. It's replacing my G4 Cube which is 12 years old. The Cube wasn't particularily energy efficient and lacked USB 2.0. I'm getting all that with the new soekris. Also I can write it off in taxes because I use it for work (it's part of my home network and an important component of it).

Iqaluit, Nunavut (October 7th - 11th)

October 14th, 2013

On my 4th part of my vacation I went to Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada which is just south of the arctic circle...
When one gets to Iqaluit this is what they'll see (the lady didn't want her face online so I edited it out)...

The second day I was there a snowstorm (part of the storm that hit north dakota a few days earlier) from the south hit us...
Here is a picture of the worker crews in apex restoring power which winds of 100 km/h knocked down...that day there was about 3 power failures despite Aaron telling me they got a new Diesel power system set up for redundancy..

The next day was nice and we trekked out to the Apex beach where the arcticfibre.com landing point is supposed to be..

Here is also the original buildings of the Hudson's Bay company which was a british trading company...

I felt really good and Aaron made these photos of me..

We went to a museum of Nunavut...

Iqaluit was once a US military base, so there is remnants of it everywhere..

In fact there is radio and satellite equipment everywhere, currently they get Internet through this.. which will take a backup role once the fibre is laid..

On our way around we saw these chained sleddogs.. never approach these, they might rip off a limb of yours...(not kidding!)...

And here is also a river where they get arctic char (sp) a type of fish for consumption.. the water is good to drink.

That was Iqaluit! I had the best of times there! Thanks and maybe I'll return for another visit some time soon!
