  • Step by Step Installation and Configuration of OpenLDAP as Proxy to Active Directory | haroonferoze – This guide describes how to install and configure OpenLDAP as proxy to Active Directory.
  • Integrate Active Directory and OpenLDAP | Networking content from Windows IT Pro – OpenLDAP’s proxy service can allow LDAP operations to cross the boundaries between AD and OpenLDAP deployments. To demonstrate this proxy service, we walk through the steps to make AD’s cn=Users container, which by default contains all user objects, part of an OpenLDAP directory. To produce the examples in this article, I used CentOS 4.3, OpenLDAP 2.2.13, and AD running on Windows Server 2003 R2. Later in the article, I’ll show you a limitation in the commonly deployed OpenLDAP 2.2, which you can solve by installing OpenLDAP 2.3 on CentOS 4.3.
  • Let’s Chat — Self-hosted chat for small teams – WHAT IS THIS THING? Some backstory. Way back in 2012, we didn't like any of the existing chat services out there. So we decided to write our own. Let's Chat is a persistent messaging application that runs on Node.js and MongoDB. It's designed to be easily deployable and fits well with small, intimate teams. It's free (MIT licensed) and ships with killer features such as LDAP/Kerberos authentication, a REST-like API and XMPP support. Let's Chat is a side-project of the development team at Security Compass. (A real life 10% time project!)

  • git-flow cheatsheet – git-flow are a set of git extensions to provide high-level repository operations for Vincent Driessen's branching model. more This cheatsheet shows the basic usage and effect of git-flow operations
  • Voluntary – […] Our goal is to create open source software that promotes freedom of expression, privacy and the decentralization of power with an eye towards usability […] (Just for OSX at the moment)
  • A Visual Git Reference – This page gives brief, visual reference for the most common commands in git. Once you know a bit about how git works, this site may solidify your understanding.
  • SSH_VPN – Community Help Wiki – This page discusses using SSH to set up SSH-based point to point connections, which can then be used to create routes that create virtual private networks. Note that using SSH in this fashion is not the "best" way to create a permanent, stable VPN. Notably, SSH uses TCP, and TCP over TCP can provide abysmal performance under pathological conditions.
  • VPN over SSH – This how-to is intended to cover the details of how to establish a VPN (Virtual Private Network) over a SSH connection. Starting with open-ssh 4.3, you can now use a ssh connection to set up a VPN. This is technically termed "layer-3 IP-in-SSH tunnelling" and is not using ssh to port forward (ssh -L ) or create a dynamic "application level" forwarding (SOCKS) (ssh -D ). Rather a VPN is established using a SSH connection to create a virtual interface, tun0. Advantages : IMO, this technique is easier to set up then openvpn, especially if you are using a single client. Works with most Linux distributions without the need to install any additional software on the clients. The server only needs openssh-server. This protocol uses udp to transmit tunneled tcp connections resulting in a more stable connection compared with port forwarding (using ssh with the -L or -D options). Disadvantages : As of yet I do not know of a windows client which will use this protocol. If you are needing to set up a VPN with numerous clients I would use openvpn. Although there are several "how-to's" on the web, most of them assume you know something about networking and routing. This page attempts to explain some of the "missing details".
