Welcome to my blog.
My company supports a wide array of clients from Fortune 100 companies to mom & pop shops.
As such, I’ve learned enough to actually build some solutions on a wide array of devices from all sort of vendors.
Here I’ll try and detail some of the experiences I have with those items.
— Brian Blood, MacServe.net
I intend to write on the following items (I’m posting this so I don’t forget):
- NetScreen firewall setup with VPN access
- Cisco switches for the datacenter. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
- Configuring bandwidth limits into a Cisco T1 router to assure QoS for Vonage VoIP ATAs
- Situations where that setup is absolutely useless.
- Getting useful SNMP from an APC network expansion card
- Application monitoring with cronned (sp?) PHP scripts and Cacti
- Extracting temperature readings from Xserve G4s, Xserve G5s and PowerMac G5s to feed into cacti
- Annoying items in Tiger Server (smnp and Apple software RAID anomalies)
- Compiling PHP 4.4.x on an Intel Mac Mini
- Tweaking Socket connections settings on a Windows 2003 Server running AltN’s MDaemon mail server
- Extracting socket connection data on a Windows 2003 Server to feed into cacti.
- Setting up a shared calendar and contact system for a small Mac workgroup with BlackBerry integration for the boss thrown into the mix.
And probably 10 other interesting, wacky, useful things I can’t think of right now.
