  • – CPRules.html contains the description of the main program, how to create the html output from the Check Point files and how to influence the output.

    The program uses two supporting libraries and one supporting program. The first is specifically developed for this program to read and manipulate the Check Point databases in memory, called I hope to use this library for other projects involving Check Point FW-1 databases …

    The other library,, is used for creating the html pages from a template, giving more freedom in designing the web pages. The author of this module is Sam Tregar (

    The supporting program is to convert the exported userfiles to a CheckPoint database format to be used by CPRules. CPUsers.html describes how it works.

  • How To Calculate Bandwidth Utilization Using SNMP  [IP Application Services] – Cisco Systems – This document describes how to calculate bandwidth use with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
  • Long range WiFi antenna from Illy coffee can | John Graham-Cumming – I have a stack of half finished projects that I'm trying to complete. Happily, the first one was finished late last night: a long range WiFi antenna made using an empty coffee can. Working from the ideas here I made an antenna from the following:

    1. An empty 250g Illy Espresso ground coffee can

    2. A Type N bulkhead socket and a Type N plug

    3. A piece of WiFi antenna extension cable with a reverse SMA connector on the end.

    4. A short piece of coat hanger for the active element of the antenna

  • Tony’s VMware Site – I have assembled a package which you can download which will allow you to have Sound, Network, and CD ROM in your Windows For Workgroups 3.11 Virtual Machine.  I also have found a copy of Netscape 4.0 which will work with Windows 3.11.
  • Michele’s blog » Temperature in your server room – At work we bought a couple of Ethernet Boxes from MessPC to keep an eye on our different server room and monitore temperature, humidity and the presence of smoke. These Ethernet boxes are quite neat: they have one network port (10 Mbps half/duplex only, beware) and four RJ-45 ports where you plug-in the sensors you need. We got sensors for temperature, humidity and a smoke alarm.
  • Nagios plugin debugging – This little perl-scripts captures STDOUT and STDERR of a nagios plugin. It writes the captured output to a temp. file. Then the output is returned to Nagios for further processing.

    This allows to track down some problems when using plugins within Nagios. You'll get some information if you have problems accessing files, can view the expanded command-line parameters of service checks, view the performance data returned in a text file, etc.

    It did help me several times – so feel free to try this out.

  • Linux Malware Detect | R-fx Networks – Linux Malware Detect (LMD) is a malware scanner for Linux released under the GNU GPLv2 license, that is designed around the threats faced in shared hosted environments. It uses threat data from network edge intrusion detection systems to extract malware that is actively being used in attacks and generates signatures for detection. In addition, threat data is also derived from user submissions with the LMD checkout feature and from malware community resources. The signatures that LMD uses are MD5 file hashes and HEX pattern matches, they are also easily exported to any number of detection tools such as ClamAV.
  • Shinken | The next Industry Standard in IT Monitoring – Shinken is an open source Nagios® like tool, redesigned and rewritten from scratch. Its main goal is to meet today’s system monitoring requirements while still allowing compatibility to Nagios®

  • Configuring a site-to-site VPN between a Sonicwall and Linux Openswan – Mike A. Leonetti – I have had the fortune of having the challenge to set up a site-to-site (or BOVPN/Branch Office VPN) between a Sonicwall and Openswan. I have searched for other articles that cover this topic and found plenty of information that got me far enough to get some of it working. However, getting the whole thing working took quite some time and I found the guides to be incomplete. So for the sake of even my own remembrance, I will write a mini guide up. Of course I will link all of the guides I've used in a references section.
  • VPN Site-to-Site Openswan x ASA (Cisco) – House of Linux – Ladies and gentleman, today I am going to demonstrate how to integrate technologies from different platforms. It is possible to use Cisco to integrate with Windows and Linux using protocol such as LDAP. In this case the communication between Linux and ASA (Adaptive Security Appliances) is straight. We will only need to check the cryptography configuration and that it, the connection is established.
