- Dynamically Display your WiFi IP Address on MAC OS X – WiFi Edge –
Dynamically displaying your WiFi IP address from a terminal shell command line is easy and efficient. Using shell aliases can help simplify this task further.
Excellent post that brings together a bunch of Linux CLI Fu to make useful networking commands. Must read if you use OS X (which, of course, all networking nerds are .. right ? )
- The Cisco Connection: Another key exec leaves Cisco – We are hearing about high profile execs leaving Cisco, but it’s also a raging torrent of mid-level talent who are moving out of Cisco into other companies that is the most telling. I keep hearing from recent ex-Cisco people who are just starting out new careers, startups. At this rate, only the losers and the lazy will be left behind.
- The Nexus 7009 ñ and what is this, Nexus 7006?!??!?!?! ´ FryGuy’s Blog –
On Ciscoís website they have a MIB posted called CISCO-ENTITY-VENDORTYPE-OID-MIB.my (clicking on that MIB will allow you to view/download it ñ original link here ). From what I can gather in the MIB ñ the Nexus 7009 will have the new Fabric-2 cards, no Fab-1 cards are even listed for this chassis. When you search the MIB, you can find the following information:
SNMP MIBs for the Cisco Nexus suggest that there is a C7006 planned. Makes sense, expect to see it in the near future.
- Fragmentation Needed: Hot Hot Hot Nexus FEXes – Chris Marget talks Cisco FEX units running overly hot in a full rack. In the comments, someone points him to a vendor who manufcature a fix for this exact problem. I love that blogging helps you to crowd source †to find an answer. Anyone got any advice for Chris.
- Cisco Restructures Consumer Business – The announcement on Marketwire that Cisco is throwing away $540 million of investment in Flip cameras. More than than it cost to start the UCS division of servers. Ooops.
- Cisco Cert Zone: Update on the Question of Cisco-Approved IOS for Self-Study – Another one from Wendell.
- Cisco Cert Zone: If Cisco Would Give Us Anything for Learning/Testing… – Wendell Odom’s opinion on Cisco IOS labs using IOS on Unix. He has three posts in all on the topic and he is much better informed that I am.
- Software Bug ToolKit – Showstopper bug on Cisco ASA 5580/ 5585 on 8.2.4 (CCO login required)
1) The ASA must be running version 8.4(1) or greater
2) The ASA must have multiple CPUs. ASA 5580 and 5585 platforms are affected by this problem. The ASA 5505, 5510, 5520, 5540 and 5550 platforms are NOT affected by this problem
3) The FTP connection must be subjected to port address translation (PAT) on the ASA. Connections subjected to static NAT, or connections that do not hit any NAT rule on the ASA will not encounter this problem.
- Seth’s Blog: Wasting the digital dividend –
It’s a little like the bump we got after the Cold War ended. The peace dividend was there, just waiting for us to repurpose our military, our military budget and our military research. We didn’t.
- Learning the Importance of WAF Technology ñ the Hard Way | The Barracuda Labs Internet Security Blog –
Before responding prematurely to the press or to anyone else, we wanted to make sure we had time to sift through our logs and do a bit of communication. Weíre glad that the impact will be very minimal, but weíre not happy about the amount of bandwidth weíve spent assessing what happened, responding to affected parties and putting in place the steps to prevent it in the future.
Good disclosure. Still, how the feck can security companies can pwned ? Their whole raison de¥tre is keep things secure.
