txt parse challenge (already awarded trophy to Dan)

From: Dave Brockman 
------------------------------------------------------
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

So I spent part of the weekend playing with this little gem, plus some
additional scripting to delete and move some files, and I haven't seen
Dan throw us a perl 1liner in a day or two, so I thought I'd invite the
rest of the list to share their solutions.  I always enjoy seeing the
different ways the list deals with text parsing.  Come one, come all,
any language, any shell.  Except Dan, who is restricted to perl and 22
characters.  (# randomly pulled out of my arse, feel free to ignore it).

The answer to all of these technology doomsday scenarios is: 

   Vacuum tube powered computers running Linux. (It’d be huge, and take a lot of power)

   Photonic quantum computers running Linux. Hmmm.. I like this idea. 



   

  

Anyone know what these EPB IP addresses are? they are hitting one of our locations hard

From: Lynn Dixon 
------------------------------------------------------
These IPs:

66.18.53.216

66.18.53.200

66.18.53.209


look like they are coming from EPB and are hitting a few of our locations
pretty heavily. I know we have some EPB folks on the list, and was
wondering if these IP's might be their Netflix appliances or even a caching
server.  Or it could be someone running a hell of a torrent seed box. heh.

Soliciting Recommendations for home office router

From: Lisa Ridley 
------------------------------------------------------
It’s time to replace my router.

I’ve got an Apple Time Machine that I bought back in 2006 that has started dropping connections and, I fear, is finally giving up the ghost.  I’m looking for recommendations for a wireless router, and while I love the ease of use of my trusty ole Time Machine, there are a few features it doesn’t have that would be nice to have in a new one.

* Reliability is first and foremost.  I don’t want to spend an inordinate amount of time troubleshooting and sending the damn thing back to the store, and I don’t want to go through 5 or 6 different one trying to find a reliable one.
* I have EPB at the house, so something that will let me take full advantage of the speed would be awesome.  I have the 1G plan.
* Needs to have a configurable firewall on board.
* I would like to connect several devices to it, some wireless, some wired (more than 4 but less than 10), including my workstation, a CI server and two small footprint computers I use for testing builds during development.
* Would like to route web traffic to different physical devices based on URL (makes the automated builds triggered by Github commits easier).  This is the single biggest drawback to my Time Machine; traffic can be routed based on port, but not URL.
* I don’t mind paying extra for reliability and features but I would prefer to NOT break the bank.

Recommendations are most welcome.



pfSense and the Gig

From: Nick Smith 
------------------------------------------------------
Hello Chugalug!

I was thinking about spinning up a new firewall, dedicated computer
hardware for pfsense, maybe even the new vmware appliance they just came
out with.

My question, is anyone doing this and getting their full gig from EPB, or
at least very close to it?

I use to have a cisco 2911 that would only give me about 2-300 Mbs of it,
and i swapped that out for an Asus AC1900 and i get around 6-700 Mbs from
that, with the little amount of port forwarding i do.  I realize every port
forward creates overhead and thus lowers your overall throughput.

If anyone is doing this id love to know your specs that your using to get
as close to the full gig as possible. Is there even a way to calculate
whats needed? for example 1ghz cpu/1gig ram for every 100Mbs throughput or
something?

I dont even know if what im even asking is possible, was just hoping.
I know that the gig speed is only on EPB's network as well, and has no
effect when it leaves, but i dont want my firewall/router to be the
limiting factor.

Thanks for the help and advice!

Google (and others?) marking my email as spam

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
Google sometimes infuriates me.

I run a Postfix mail server, whose IP address and domain name isn't listed
on any blacklists. However, often times when I send an email to a new
contact, the email gets marked as spam. I've setup SPF records indicating
the mail server's IP address is legitimate, and according to the mail
headers, the SPF record passes.

But still, Google marks the email as spam.

The following example of a mail header was a single email sent to a single
person, and was a legitimate email (i.e. it wasn't a marketing email - it
was me reaching out to that person to finalize a time for a meeting we were
in the midst of scheduling for next week).

What, if anything, can be done about this?

(I've removed the actual email addresses, but have left everything else
intact)

EPB Business class service and static IP's

From: Lynn Dixon 
------------------------------------------------------
To build on our conversation from eariler this morning, I contacted EPB to
get pricing on routed subnets and static IP's.

Business class service is the only thing eligible for routed subnets or IP
blocks.  The starting price for the service is $350 per month for 100 meg
service, which comes with SLA guarantees on 99.99% uptime as well as
bandwidth SLA's. With this same service, you get a /28 of IP addresses,
which is 14 useable (16 total, minus 1 for gateway, and minus 1 for the
network ID/broadcast).
Business class is available to any address that is serviceable by the
residential service.

They have various other levels with increased speeds for higher prices of
course, all the way to 1 Gig.  I didn't get pricing for anything above
100meg since $350 made it out of scope for me.

The sales rep did mention that EPB does co-location, but after talking with
them, they only offer it to customers whom are willing to lease a full 43U
rack.  Pricing for a full 43U rack with 100meg service and /28 with 20amps
of power is roughly $1400 per month.

So, there ya have it. At $350 its a bit out of my price range as a small
business, so I will just keep my two machines co-located in Knoxville and
Chattanooga (Peace Communications).  I was really hoping to get a faster
connection with their Business class service, and bring my machines to my
home datacenter.  I have plenty of power and cooling available, as well as
natural gas for a genset. I already have a sizeable UPS as well.

It looks as if EPB is initially targeting medium to large size businesses
with these colo offerings.  I will keep in touch with them to see if they
start to offer smaller rack leases.

EPB IPv6

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
Excuse me if this question has already been asked, but does EPB actively
support IPv6 on their network?

If not, then what in the world is keeping them? There shouldn't be any
excuse not to support it by now.

If they do support it, then how do I get an address? pfSense isn't pulling
down an IPv6 address via DHCP.

EPB and Home Servers...

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------

Asking the list a silly question: 

If I were to run a server at home on my EPB connection for some personal low bandwidth stuff… what do they actually limit?

Can I run Web (port 80) and SMTP (Port 25?) 

I can deal with reasonable changes in IP addresses.. etc.. 

What are ya’ll experiencing? Any options? 

Just curious…





pfSense hardware for sale

From: Lynn Dixon 
------------------------------------------------------
Hey all,
I have a PC Engines APU1D4 for sale. I bought it with the intent of using
it with EPB gigabit service, but I soon found out that it doesnt have the
horsepower ro be able to handle full gigabit across its WAN.  I was only
able to get it to sustain a stable 600 to 700 Mbps across the WAN.

Its a great unit, with only a few hours of use on it. Runs pfSense like a
champ.  Just be aware, that it will only be able to route traffic at about
600 Mbps through its WAN interface.  Its really low power, at only about 12
watts.   I have added several options to this unit that I will sell with
it. Here is the full list of goods:

APU1D4 main board
Black enclosure built for the mainboard
Wall wart power supply
WLE200NX miniPCI express card  capable of 802.11b/g/n
Two dual band antennas and pigtails
80 gig Mini-PCIe SSD drive installed

I have about $275 invested in the kit, including the SSD.  I am asking $200
for the entire kit which is assembled and will come with a clean install of
the latest pfSense nightly on it. Price is negotiable to a small degree.

You can get the details on the APU here:
http://store.netgate.com/kit-APU1C4.aspx  As well as price shop the
accessories I am including with it.

If your interested, give me an email at boodaddy@gmail.com and I will send
you my phone number.

PCEngines APU1D4 for sale... Perfect pfSense box!

From: Lynn Dixon 
------------------------------------------------------
Well everyone, I am selling my fairly new APU1D4.  I moved to Ooltewah, and
got the 1 gig service from EPB.  Unfortunately, this little APU doesnt have
the horsepower to handle a full 1 Gbps throughput.  I was routinely seeing
about 600 Mbps on the little guy but never could get it above 700 or so.

So, I picked up a Lanner FW-8760 off ebay, running an i7 processor and 16
gig ram, and it is able to handle routing traffic at a full 1 Gbps.  Thus,
I am selling the APU.

Its a great unit, with only a few hours of use on it. Runs pfSense like a
champ.  Just be aware, that it will only be able to route traffic at about
600 Mbps through its WAN interface.  Its really low power, at only about 12

Any suggestions for a good 802.11ac Access point?

From: Lynn Dixon 
------------------------------------------------------
Hey guys,
I am needing to upgrade my access point now that I am on EPB gig service.
I am using an APU1D4 running pfSense as my router, so I just need an access
point / Bridge for my wireless devices.

I'd like to have 802.11ac in both 2.4 and 5 ghz bands. POE would be nice,
but not a definate requirement. Doesn't have to be wall/celiing mountable
either.

Any good recommendations?  I'd like to have one that had multiple radios to
handle multiple simultaneous devices.  I am looking at some of the Ubiquity
units, but its in the $280 to $300 price range.

Does EPB sell or lease IPv4 addresses?

From: Lynn Dixon 
------------------------------------------------------
So, in my possibility of moving to Ooltewah, and getting EPB I have a
question for the LUG.

Does EPB sell/lease IP addresses to their residential customers?  I have a
/28 at Peace Communications as part of my Colocation, but it would be nice
to buy a /29 to use for my home lab, and a some other personal services.

I know we have some EPB guys on here, and was hoping someone could give me
some insight.
