08:45<Antitribu>never mind :P
08:45<Antitribu>i got it, i'm a clown
08:46<Antitribu>basically windows vpn support
08:46<Antitribu>short version, run the newer kernel
08:47<JasonF>openvpn isnt' that hard to setup :)
08:48<Antitribu>yeh but its not in every copy of windows
08:49<Antitribu>and when you need to explain it to clueless monkeys
08:49<Antitribu>_easy_ is the name of the game
08:53<JasonF>heh
08:53<JasonF>what we do here
08:54<JasonF>is have the certif and config for dl
08:54<JasonF>so you just install ovpn
08:54<JasonF>copy the files
08:54<JasonF>and run it
08:54<JasonF>and it just works
08:57|-|jekil [~alessandr@pcport.univ.trieste.it] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
09:01<cmantito>we distribute small usb keys to the important people with the windows installer, os x installer (and toolbar doohicky), and linux source tgz, as well as a config and certs
09:06<Antitribu>i might look into that
09:06<Antitribu>i know i used to use a usb key with stunnel and a few things
09:06<Antitribu>but it seems like overkill for what i want now
09:07<kvandivo>i can't find the word 'overkill' in my dictionary
09:08<cmantito>heheh.
09:11<cmantito>tunnelblick! that's the OS X OpenVpn frontend we use.
09:11<cmantito>It's quite excellent.
09:14<Antitribu>hrmmm
09:14<Antitribu>i thought i had this running
09:14<Antitribu>if i dont get it running before i crash into the keyboard i'll look at open vpn tomorrow
09:14<cmantito>heh
09:14<cmantito>I like openvpn because it uses a standard TCP socket, instead of other protocols.
09:15<cmantito>a *single* open port as well.
09:15<cmantito>especially useful if you're on £$@%!£%!ing COMCAST which doesn't allow traditional PPTP VPN connections in or out -_-
09:15<Antitribu>nice
09:15<Antitribu>is it anything like vtun?
09:15<cmantito>vtun? haven't looked at that.
09:15<Antitribu>i've always used vtun for linux<->linux
09:16<cmantito>yes
09:16<cmantito>it's similar
09:16<Antitribu>cause its single arbitary port, udp, stable as all hell
09:16<Antitribu>and takes approximately 4 seconds to set up
09:16<cmantito>openvpn can use UDP as well, but I prefer TCP myself.
09:16<Antitribu>and i discovered it after doing battle with freeswan for a week
09:17<cmantito>heh.
09:17<cmantito>I discovered openvpn after battling with poptop for weeks on end only to find out comcast was blocking the connections -_-
09:18<Antitribu>thats just slack :S
09:18<Antitribu>they are a big isp too hey?
09:18<cmantito>yeah
09:18<cmantito>huge.
09:18<cmantito>they block incoming PPTP connections unless you get a business account
09:18<Antitribu>sorta like telstra over here in .au
09:18<Antitribu>who thought it would be a super idea to use private addresses in their routing tables
09:18<cmantito>and the block outgoing PPTP connections unless you explicitly request to be allowed, and for a good reason.
09:18<cmantito>hah
09:18<cmantito>verizon does that
09:19<cmantito>HEY! LETS ASSIGN EVERYONE A 10. IP ADDRESS AND NO ONE WILL NOTICE!
09:19<cmantito>grrr.
09:19<Antitribu>:P
09:19<Antitribu>yeh something like that
09:19<Antitribu>telstra wasn't _that_ bad
09:19<Antitribu>you got a public ip
09:19<Antitribu>and somehow it worked
09:19<Antitribu>most of the time
09:19<cmantito>heh.
09:19<Antitribu>but a traceroute to anywhere
09:19<Antitribu>and you spent half your time in 10./16
09:20<Antitribu>or /8 sorry
09:20<cmantito>oooh fun.
09:20<Antitribu>yeh, i never did quite figure it out
09:20<Antitribu>i left as soon as i could
09:20<cmantito>verizon "limited business" accounts you got a 10./16, yes 16, not 8, and then you got routed outside through that, and each region was assigned a public IP
09:20<Antitribu>128k upload speed doesn't do it for me
09:20<cmantito>but *only* "limited business" accounts.
09:20<Antitribu>sorry?
09:21<Antitribu>hang on so you dont actually get an ip address?
09:21<cmantito>bingo.
09:21<Antitribu>uh...huh
09:21<cmantito>you get something in the 10.0.0.0/8 range, but using a /16 mask, so it got confusing.
09:21<Antitribu>_weird_
09:21<Antitribu>and ... why?
09:21<cmantito>cuase that's what verizon does.
09:21[~]cmantito hates verizon, hates verizon we does.
09:23<Antitribu>right
09:23<Antitribu>thats just whole new levels of messed up
09:23<cmantito>heheh.
09:23<cmantito>afaik, they've stopped doing it, but I'm not sure of that.
09:23<cmantito>I haven't touched one of those accounts in about 2 years now.
09:28<Antitribu>i can see why
09:30<cmantito>the biggest telephone company in the US has no respect for standards. tis a shame.
09:32<Antitribu>in my xp, no phone company anywhere has respect for them
09:33|-|sonorous [~simon@grolsch.attenuate.org] has left #linode []
09:33<Antitribu>telstra are terrible
09:33<cmantito>some do, but i's uncommon.
09:33<Antitribu>they are still installing RIMs
09:33<Antitribu>(breaking dsl compatibility)
09:33<Antitribu>they only recently decided a proprietary cable network was probably not a good way to go
09:34<cmantito>-_-
09:34<Antitribu>and while i was connected to them
09:34<Antitribu>they lost the webservers
09:34<Antitribu>with everyones web pages on it
09:34<Antitribu>*poof* gone
09:34<Antitribu>they said "oops"
09:35<Antitribu>pointed to the contract
09:35<Antitribu>and said please restore from a backup
09:35<cmantito>yow
09:35<Antitribu>email frequently took a day or two to deliver
09:35<Antitribu>and there were _insane_ limits
09:36<Antitribu>like 10 an hour per ip or something
09:36<cmantito>gah
09:36<cmantito>that blows.
09:36<Antitribu>yeh, was nuts
09:36<Antitribu>and a few of my friends left a bit torrent on
09:36<Antitribu>and racked up a $9k bill
09:38<Antitribu>ok, thanks all for the chat
09:38<Antitribu>i gota get to bed
09:38<Antitribu>nite/morning which ever is applicable
09:38<cmantito>heh, thanks for keeping me from being entirely bored. night ;)
09:38<cmantito>well, night for you ;)

18:10<fo0bar>it's probably not doing any good for the cdrom drive either

21:32<cmantito>hmmm.
21:32<cmantito>I got TWO cds.
21:32<cmantito>woot :)
21:49[~]cmantito --sleep 12h &
22:17<fo0bar>cmantito: yeah, I felt bad about sending you an 86.2 CD while I had just finished mastering 87.0, so I burned that as a normal copy
22:17<cmantito>hehe
22:18<cmantito>thanks. ^.^
22:18<cmantito>now does the 87.0 copy work with my iPod mini? ;)
22:19<@mikegrb>you have to pay extra for that
22:19<cmantito>(and for reference, you an point out on your april fool's page that the iPod nano/5G iPod's don't even _have_ firewire, so 1394 networking shouldn't even be thought of in that context.)
22:19<cmantito>(also, afaik, no iPod can do networking over USB yet)
22:20<cmantito></apple-dork>
22:20<cmantito>anyway, thanks for the discs, I shall thoroughly enjoy them, and I'm off to bed.
22:24<@caker>any way to echo characters (say, into /proc/sysrq-trigger) with just a working bash and a broken libc?
22:26<JasonF>what's you break!
22:26<JasonF>you broke host51 again, admit it!
22:26<@caker>nope, host27's libc update failed, leaving it borked
22:26<Spads>caker: busybox?
22:26<Spads>how broken?
22:26<@caker>Spads: well, yeah -- that's what I'm waiting on (a reboot from TP) ... I've got an initrd+busybox combo standing by
22:26<@caker>that'll fix it -- I just didn't want to wait on TP and/or if I need to reboot it again
22:27<Spads>ah, no sash?
22:27<@caker>I'm in via screen
22:27<Spads>nono
22:27<Spads>sash
22:27<@caker>oh ..
22:27<Spads>statically linked root shell
22:27<Spads>it may be in there by default
22:27<Spads>lifesaver for all systems
22:28<@caker>nothing in /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin :(
22:28<Spads>:<
22:28<Spads>and "echo fdasdfa > /proc/goober" doesn't work for you?
22:29<@caker>echo is dead
22:29<Spads>really?
22:29<JasonF>caker: can you cat things?
22:29<Spads>it's a bash builtin
22:29<Spads>JasonF: no, cat is an external prog
22:29<@caker>huh .. it's not, wow
22:29<@caker>Spads: yeah, echo is working .. I'm an idiot
22:29<Spads>that's how I ls when libc is borked
22:29<Spads>I do "echo *"
22:29<@caker>oh well -- they're rebooting it now
22:29<Spads>and "echo /var/goober/*
22:29<Spads>heh
22:29<fo0bar>/bin/echo exists, but it's also a bash builtin
22:29<Spads>ah
22:30<Spads>damn posix
22:30<fo0bar>but I can't remember which one takes preference
22:30<Spads>the builtin
22:30<Spads>but yeah
22:30<@caker>yup
22:30<Spads>also, when things go pear-shaped, it's time to use pushd instead of cd
22:30<@caker>I really hope this goes smoothly
22:30<Spads>helps you keep perspective
22:30<@caker>I can see this turning ugly, quick
22:31<Spads>fo0bar: you can explicitly state "builtin echo ..."
22:31<@caker>to the tune of $150/hr
22:32<@caker>heh, well that worked, but I missed hitting DEL to enter BIOS
22:32<@caker>TP will reboot it...
22:32<Spads> heh
22:32<@caker>I really should be netbooting all these boxes
22:33<Spads>caker: you should consider installing sash on the hosts, but not the sashroot user.
22:33<JasonF>Spads: is that the actual syntax?
22:33<fo0bar>caker: wait, won't broken libc + reboot = doom?
22:33<Spads>JasonF: I think so. why?
22:33<Spads>[nick@xyzzy(~)] builtin echo hi
22:33<Spads>hi
22:33<@caker>fo0bar: netboot+initrd+busybox == kickass
22:34<fo0bar>caker: ahh, I missed that part
22:34<Spads>fo0bar: builtin takes precedence
22:34<Spads>[nick@xyzzy(~)] type -t echo
22:34<Spads>builtin
22:34<Spads>[nick@xyzzy(~)] type -t /bin/echo
22:34<Spads>file
22:34<efudd>eh
22:34<efudd>heh even.
22:35<efudd>there is a reason i don't have any machines remote. :) I refuse to rely on anyone to do anything other than hit a button.
22:35[~]caker double checks his config
22:36<@caker># cat pxelinux.cfg/default

22:36[~]caker goes for i
22:36<@caker>it
22:36<efudd>even looks sane.
22:36<Spads>godspeed
22:36<efudd>hrm. two console='s?
22:36<@caker>yup
22:36<efudd>Neat.
22:36<Spads>20:36 <Rattus> I remember one time I hosed all the shared libraries on my computer, and drdink /dcc me a few so I could get everything working again
22:36<Spads>hahaha
22:36[~]efudd scribbles notes
22:36<Spads>that's a great story
22:36<efudd>spads, at some poitn in my past, circa ~1992, I had that done.
22:37<@caker>here goes ...
22:37<Spads>hahaha
22:37<Spads>I think I've done similar, but not irc
22:37<Spads>just scp
22:37<efudd>libc upgrade gone bad.
22:37<Spads>or something like that
22:37<efudd>wayyy back in the day.
22:37<Spads>okay, off to watch 24
22:37<efudd>SLS/yggdrasil
22:37<efudd>don't bother
22:37<efudd>it's lame.
22:37<efudd>show is dumbed down
22:37<Spads>we're only in season 2
22:37<Spads>bye
22:37<efudd>damned show is pissing me off now. this is my last season.
22:37<efudd>oic.
22:38<@caker>I'm in :)
22:42<TheFirst>24 has always sucked
22:42<@caker>Fixed :)
22:45<fo0bar>AND THEN IT ALL BROKE HORRIBLY
22:46<fo0bar>I should make an initrd for booting finnix from NFS, so it could be PXE-booted
22:46<TheFirst>isn't that always the case?
22:47<encode>caker: can you fix australia's routing so that i can get decent speeds off my linode? kthx :D

22:56<encode>true

22:57<encode>i dont think i've ever used apt-file either
22:57<TheFirst>at least not as annoying as my normal nick being registered by a guy that hasnt been on in years >:/

23:00<TheFirst>apt-file is like debian.org/distrib/packages
23:01<@caker>huh .. sash is pretty bad ass
23:01<@caker>flood...
23:01<@caker> More importantly, however, is that many of the standard system commands are built-in to sash. These built-in
23:01<@caker> commands are:
23:01<@caker> -ar, -chattr, -chgrp, -chmod, -chown, -cmp, -cp,
23:01<@caker> -dd, -echo, -ed, -grep, -file, -find, -gunzip,

23:01<@caker> -more, -mount, -mv, -printenv, -pwd, -rm, -rmdir,
23:01<@caker> -sum, -sync, -tar, -touch, -umount, -where
23:01<@caker></flood>
23:01<@caker>that rocks
23:02<efudd>yup.
23:02<TheFirst>hmm has anyone messed trying to get horde working under lighttpd?
23:03<@caker>I installed horde once (and only once) .. quite an interesting process
23:03<@caker>but not under lighttpd, sorry
23:04<JasonF>USE="orc, undead" emerge warcraft
