You were never here, you didn't see anything..


Currently I am running Zabbix to monitor my network, and OPNSense to secure it. There is a Zabbix agent available for OPNSense which gives access to a number of stats. One thing missing however is configuration of the encryption variables in the OPNSense GUI. One cannot simply enable the feature Read more…


Seems that NFS 4.1 is supported by ESXi 6.x and later but only using the full VSPhere client or the cli commands.


A project I have been working on has finally come to be near complete. As a gift, I build a custom clock using an arduino, a Chronodot RTC, some bi-color 8×8 matrix displays and some other random parts. I hope to post the details soon. Till then, some pics: The Read more…
