Notes on the computer known as seamonster.jun.alaska.edu (is/was 208.164)

totally dead main hard drive.. ug. Dave Sauer shipped it down to me for forensics. tried freezer trick, etc.. no joy.

I did find some backups from Oct 2008 -- this may actually be pretty good in terms of the database and web browser. First thing I'll do is backup the backups -- the are in nsrl1:/home/heavner and I'm copying them to seamonsterak.com now

seamonster@dev:/home/heavner$ ls -lrt backup/
total 32665608

Heavner 19:11, 14 September 2010 (PDT) I got the new hard drive (a 2 TB western digital). The ubuntu 04.10 install errored out on it. Maybe too big? I'll hafta google a bit...

RUNNING ssh: 6, 139 (Darwin, ether?), 158 (Darwin, wifi?),165 (?) ,185 (?) (nmap -p22 137.229.208.0-250)

Heavner Notes from openVPN issues:

Have you dealt much w/ openVPN lately? I'm getting the seamonster box going again (ubuntu 10.10). I'm working openVPN, and it looks like between 2.09 (which is still on nsrl/dev/VPN server) and 2.1x (in ubuntu 10.10) there are new requirements on certificate verification. Have you had to deal with this? If so, is it an "easy fix"? I'm gonna dig into it, but I was trying to see how much time I should plan--any idea?

I opened http://openvpn.net/howto.html#mitm and couldn't easily tell about 2.09 and 2.1 compatability. Do I need to try upgrade nsrl from 2.09 to 2.10? If I do this, does that mean I need to do it on all the machines out there?


Heavner 08:20, 23 September 2011 (PDT) Hmm. seamonster2 is at 208.157 running 2.6 kernel.
