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


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…

I recently came across a blog post that inspired me to install ELK on a server and pipe the log data to it from pfsense. Fantastic article, fantastic dashboard and wonderful inspiration. I banged my way through things armed with the blog post and several Internet searches. In the end Read more…


I have been working to tweak an install of Zabbix to monitor my internal network. I like the map feature quite a bit due to its ability to customize. Here is a map of my primary infrastructure with active links which show the port and link speed. By active I Read more…


This is long overdue and I was reminded of that by a comment asking what the throughput looks like for this configuration. So, without further ado, here are some bandwidth numbers from iperf3 passing through a Nokia IP-690 running pfsense. Note this is on my live network so there is Read more…


In an effort to get some details on bandwidth through a device iperf is the perfect tool. It is also very easy to set use. In the following examples I am using my desktop machine on the local LAN of my firewall and a server in the DMZ, also off Read more…


I recently went on the hunt for something to monitor my network. In the end I landed on Zabbix for several reasons (outside the scope of this post). By default when it discovers a host and runs it prototypes it creates items for each network interface and a trigger for Read more…


In my ongoing search for awesoem hardware to use as a firewall I recently loaded up a Nokia IP690 with pfSense. This was an awesome success and it is running great. Of course it is limited by certain factors and I wanted to see about something less limited. Enter the Checkpoint IP2455.


The Nokia IP690 is a 1u form factor rack mount unit. Aside from that the internal hardware is almost shrouded in secrecy it seems as little is known or published about it on the Internet. I hope to shed a little light on that here…
